Canada concerned over reports Saudi journalist killed

Turkey believes journalist killed in Saudi consulate

Yemeni Nobel Prize victor Tawakkol Karman, centre, participates at a demonstration for Khashoggi that was organized by the Turkish-Arabic Media Association in front of the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul on Friday. "It has to prove that Jamal wasn't oppressed at the consulate and that he left safely".

Amnesty International has urged Riyadh to to "immediately disclose the evidence supporting their claim" that Khashoggi left the consulate, saying that "otherwise their claims are utterly baseless". Details of the convoy were disclosed by the pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper. "We are trying to make certain that no innocent people die down there right now", he said.

Meanwhile, the head of the Turkish-Arab Media Association in Turkey, Turan Kislakci has told Shebab that Turkish officials had assured him of Khashoggi having been brutally murdered inside the consulate.

This footage has not been officially released, but on Tuesday the Washington Post, which employs Khashoggi as a contributor, published an image that showed Khashoggi walking into the consulate building last Tuesday. "And that happened", the crown prince told Bloomberg on Friday in a wide-ranging interview. His fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, had waited outside. Jamal Khashoggi has not been seen since he entered the building last week.

Saudi Arabia has denied the reports.

A security delegation consisting of Saudi investigators arrived in Istanbul on Saturday to take part in the investigations.

The countries have significant trade and investment ties and vie for influence across the region.

Just a few months after the 33-year-old was appointed heir to the Gulf region's most powerful throne, rights groups reported the first wave of arrests.

After his dismissal he moved to London and later Washington to serve as a media adviser to ambassador Prince Turki bin-Faisal, Saudi Arabia's former intelligence chief.

In March, the State Department approved a $670 million arms sale to Saudi Arabia, part of a promised $110 billion in deals touted by Trump after his first presidential trip to the Saudi capital previous year.

Pompeo says Kim Jong Un ready to allow nuclear, missile site inspections
Korean Central News Agency ( KCNA ) reported that Kim had "warmly welcomed" Pompeo in Pyongyang and "spoke highly of him". Analysts say Washington may now consider new options as China, Russia and South Korea seek to relax sanctions.

He said it comes as no surprise that Riyad is looking to quash criticism, but this case is beyond the sad but true usual jailing of journalists.

Two Turkish sources also confirmed Khashoggi's death, stressing he was killed inside the consulate.

She raised the alarm four hours later, by which time the convoy is believed to have left the consulate. The disappearance has shocked many in Turkey and caused alarm in some quarters of Riyadh. He said that senior state officials have been in communication with Riyadh. "We have some concrete information, it won't be an unresolved crime", the Middle East Eye reported.

He also criticised how the Saudi government was initiating reform.

It would also put Britain directly at odds with the crown prince, who is a key United Kingdom ally.

In August, the kingdom expelled the Canadian ambassador and froze all trade and investment after Ottawa voiced concern for jailed rights activists in the kingdom.

France said it was seeking an explanation as to how an "accomplished and esteemed" journalist had vanished.

Claiming that Khashoggi left the embassy, Saudi officials expressed concern about his mysterious disappearance.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has been documenting the increasingly harsh treatment of journalists in Saudi Arabia.

In a rare public appearance in October, the crown prince - known as MBS - said he would strive for "a country of moderate Islam that is tolerant of all religions and to the world".
