  • Turkey Inspects Saudi Consulate in Case of Missing Journalist

As CBS News White House correspondent Weija Jiang reports, the expansion of the Turks' investigation came as President Trump moved closer to acknowledging a Saudi role in Khashoggi's disappearance.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo listened to an alleged audio recording of the "murder" of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, ABC News reported Thursday, citing a senior Turkish official.

"We are waiting for some investigations, and waiting for the results.

That's the message I transmitted to Saudi Arabia's foreign affairs minister", Freeland said in reference to the Khashoggi case.

The sudden cash windfall raised some eyebrows on Wednesday, given the ongoing investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, but USA officials denied that the swift transfer of cash between Saudi Arabia and the United States had anything to do with Pompeo's visit to Riyadh.

"I've seen no tape".

The investigators left the residence around 1:30 am, but some of them headed to the nearby consulate to conduct a search, which was continuing into the early hours of Thursday. "We have not shared any information at all with any country".




Only then, Pompeo said, "we can make decisions how or if the United States should respond".

The official told The Associated Press on Friday that police have established that two vehicles belonging to the Saudi consulate left the building on October 2 - the day Khashoggi had walked into the consulate and vanished. He said last week that it would be a "tough pill to swallow" to cease the sales over Khashoggi, contending that such a move would hurt the U.S. economy.

And several (including Sam Altman, president of Y Combinator, and Dan Doctoroff, CEO of Alphabet unit Sidewalk Labs) have cut ties to the Saudi Arabia's Neom smart city project after being named as advisors, CNBC reports. Turkish officials allege he was murdered there.

"I still want to wish and hope that he is alive and so on", Kislakci said.

Khashoggi, a Saudi citizen and US green card holder, disappeared on October 2 after entering Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, where he is widely believed to have been tortured and killed. Khashoggi is a Saudi citizen and a USA resident.

In a related development, the Committee to Protect Journalists, Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International, and Reporters Without Borders on Thursday urged Turkey to urgently ask UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to establish a UN investigation into the possible extrajudicial execution of Khashoggi.

"Government welcomes the ongoing diplomatic interaction between the Republic of Turkey and the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, as well as the investigation which seeks to get to the bottom of this matter".
