Turkey says will search consulate where Saudi journalist vanished

Last week, Jamal Khashoggi went missing while visiting the Saudi Arabian consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul.

Turkey says it will conduct a search of Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul.

"I also urge Saudi Arabia, especially King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to show the same level of sensitivity and release CCTV footage from the consulate", Cengiz wrote.

Protesters gathered outside the Saudi consulate Monday demanding to know what had happened to Khashoggi. Not only do they not know what happened to him, they say, but they are also anxious for his safety. Fears are growing over the fate of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi after Turkish officials said they believe he was murdered inside the Saudi consulate.

"If media reports prove correct, we will treat the incident seriously - friendships depend on shared values".

The news agency, quoting a diplomatic source said, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to Ankara Waleed A M Elkhereiji was summoned to the Turkish foreign ministry on Sunday. The Vienna Convention on diplomatic relations allows for consulates to be searched by authorities of a host country with consent of the mission chief, he said.

Mr Hunt said that if reports of Mr Khashoggi's death proved correct, the United Kingdom would regard the situation as "serious", adding: "Friendships depend on shared values". The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to talk to reporters about the subject.

A surveillance image has emerged that shows Khashoggi entering the consulate on the day he disappeared. The search proved fruitless and the plane took off again afterwards, it said.

The Foreign Office has never had any illusions that the Saudi economic and social modernisation programme under the crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the de facto ruler, includes any commitment to free expression or a turn towards democracy. He opened his plea by violating journalistic ethics - he revealed that Khashoggi had been the source of an anonymous quote in one of his previous columns.

The Saudis have called the allegations "baseless", insisting Khashoggi left the building through an exit that wasn't the main building.

Lance Lynn entered and allowed the bases to clear, making Severino responsible for six earned runs over three-plus innings. Behind the plate for Boston is going to be Christian Vazquez , who hasn't caught Rick Porcello all season.

The disappearance of the 59-year-old journalist has sparked global concern for his welfare.

The Post, citing two people with knowledge of the investigation, reported Tuesday that a 15-member team of men who had arrived from Saudi Arabia was waiting for Khashoggi to arrive at the consulate.

Cengiz writes in the Post op-ed, "I implore President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to help shed light on Jamal's disappearance".

Trump, who took his first overseas trip as USA president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said while he had not yet talked to the Saudis about Khashoggi.

"We call for cooperation between Turkey and Saudi Arabia to conduct a prompt and impartial investigation into the circumstances of Mr Khashoggi's disappearance and to make the findings public", United Nations human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told a Geneva news briefing. In his dealings with Canada, including a withdrawal of investment, the Saudi ruler has shown he does not tolerate criticism of his country's human rights record.

A former editor of the al-Watan newspaper and a short-lived Saudi TV news channel, he was for years seen as close to the Saudi royal family.

In November, dozens of princes, businessmen and senior officials were detained in what the authorities said was an anti-corruption crackdown.

A top Senate ally of Trump warned of a "devastating" impact on the U.S. alliance with Saudi Arabia if allegations are confirmed.

It was not clear whether the Saudis meant to arrest and interrogate Khashoggi or to kill him, or if the United States warned Khashoggi that he was a target, this person said. The dissident Saudi journalist's Turkish colleagues and several Turkish officials have voiced concerns that he was murdered in the consulate.
