Saudi Prince's Staff Seen at Consulate When Writer Vanished

Saudi Prince's Staff Seen at Consulate When Writer Vanished

But he's not confirming there is any such recording, as reported by Turkish media, and he's continuing to urge patience while Saudi Arabia says it's investigating.

Such information would not have been disclosed in Turkey without the consent of the government.

On Thursday, the Post published what it described as Khashoggi's last column in honor of the missing journalist.

Turkish police on Wednesday began searching the residence of the Saudi consul in Istanbul for their investigation, with forensics experts in white overalls entering the building, an AFP correspondent said.

Karen Attiah, the Global Opinions editor at The Post, wrote a note at the top of Khashoggi's newest article.

Khashoggi called for the creation of an "independent worldwide forum" to allow ordinary people in the Arab world to address "the structural problems" their societies face. I will be forever grateful he chose The Post as his final journalistic home one year ago and gave us the chance to work together.

Ms Attiah said the column was a flawless example of Khashoggi's commitment and passion for freedom in the Arab world, which was "a freedom he apparently gave his life for".

The United States and President Donald Trump have stopped short of condemning the conservative kingdom amid growing concerns over how Saudi Arabia's relations with the USA and the rest of the world would be affected if it emerged that the country orchestrated Khashoggi's killing.

The sheriff says he can not say for sure that it is not Jayme Closs in surveillance video from Florida released Tuesday. Police say gunshots were involved in the parents' deaths, but they have yet to give more details on the situation.

Saudi Arabia has strongly denied the allegations.

Dutch finance minister Wopke Hoekstra has cancelled his visit to Saudia Arabia because of the probable murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi embassy in Istanbul.

Meshal Saad al-Bostani, a 31-year-old lieutenant in the Saudi Royal Air Force, is believed to have died in a "suspicious auto accident" in the Saudi capital Riyadh, sources told the Turkish Yeni Safak - the one that earlier covered the shocking details of the murder.

A government spokesman said Fox had decided it was not the right time to attend the conference and explicitly tied the decision to Khashoggi's disappearance. However, Turkish media reported that it appeared as though the consulate had been swept by Saudi agents before the search. Khashoggi went to the consulate on October 2 to obtain documents that would allow his marriage to move forward.

The boycott of next week's Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh will be a huge embarrassment for Prince Mohammed, who has tried to model himself as a reformer and encourage outside investment into Saudi Arabia.
