Turkish police have audio of 'Khashoggi killing in consulate'

Turkish police have audio of 'Khashoggi killing in consulate'

Flake said if the Saudis did, in fact, kill Khashoggi, Congress might specifically curtail USA military aid to Saudi-led forces in Yemen.

Turkey will search the Saudi consulate in Istanbul later on Monday as part of an investigation into the disappearance of prominent journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Turkish diplomatic source said. "All affected passengers will have their tour costs refunded in full".

But Saudi Arabia has strongly denied the accusations, vowing to retaliate with "greater action".

Turkish officials have said they believe he was killed - a claim Saudi Arabia has denied - with the controversy dealing a huge blow to the kingdom's image and efforts by its youthful crown prince to showcase a reform drive.

According to a prince belonging to Saudi Royal family, 5 members of the Royal family who raised voice against the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi have been put in jail.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor, vanished after entering the consulate on October 2.

Jamal Khashoggi has been missing since October 2, and Turkish authorities have claimed they have audio and video evidence that he was killed in the Saudi consulate, dismembered, and taken out unnoticed.

Erdogan stressed forming a joint working group to probe the case, said a Turkish presidential source, who spoke on condition of anonymity due to restrictions on talking to media.

Investors have taken fright, prompting Saudi stocks to tumble by around seven percent at one point on Sunday, wiping out their gains for 2018.

The kingdom has called such allegations "baseless" but has not offered any evidence Khashoggi left the consulate. "And incidentally in this whole case of Khashoggi, [Turkish President Recep] Erdogan doesn't come into this case with what we used to say 'clean hands.' He has a awful human rights record".

Trump said Pomepo would be departing Washington "literally within an hour or so" and has license to travel wherever necessary, including Turkey, to investigate what happened.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow declined to speculate on what Trump might do after the president promised "severe punishment" in a "60 Minutes" interview, if the USA determines that Khashoggi was indeed killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The Uber investment was the PIF's first major deal in the technology start-up market, signaling its shift in strategy toward more aggressive and eye-catching foreign investments. But Khashoggi's disappearance has led several business leaders and media outlets to back out of the upcoming investment conference in Riyadh called the Future Investment Initiative.

Technology company SoftBank saw its shares drop as the fallout spread to the Japanese conglomerate whose nearly $100 billion Vision Fund is almost half-funded by Saudi Arabia. SoftBank was down more than seven percent in trading on Tokyo's stock exchange.

Khashoggi lived in self-imposed exile in the United States for the past year and wrote columns in the Washington Post criticising the Saudi leadership. While loosening the hold of the country's feared religious police and allowing women to drive, the powerful crown prince has also overseen a widespread crackdown on dissent.
