Turkey believes missing Saudi journalist was murdered at Saudi consulate in Istanbul
"I have raised Jamal's disappearance personally with the Saudi ambassador, and while we await more information, know we will respond accordingly to any state that targets journalists overseas", he wrote.
Since exactly one week ago, his fiancée and friends have been rallying outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul where the journalist and prominent critic of the Kingdom's policies disappeared. He visited the consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain documentation to finalize his divorce; his Turkish fiancée waited for him outside the building, and reported him missing after he didn't return. Riyadh claims he exited through a back door, the Turks are dubious and the search is on for clues.
The US resident has written articles over the past year in self-imposed exile that were critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
The mainstream is rightly starting to focus on the repressive history of the Saudi de facto leader, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, but is not emphasizing that he is also responsible for the armed onslaught against neighboring Yemen, which has killed tens of thousands of civilians, maybe more, and triggered the largest cholera epidemic in human history.
His Turkish fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, who waited for him outside the consulate, said he never came out of the building. For his part, Trump simply said, "Hopefully that will sort itself out".
U.S. Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said he and other lawmakers "agree if there was any truth to the allegations of wrongdoing by the Saudi government, it would be devastating to the U.S. -Saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to be paid - economically and otherwise". So far, the kingdom has offered no evidence in the past seven days to show that Khashoggi ever left the building, as a new surveillance photo surfaced showed him walking in its main entrance. "It would be a violation of global law to harm, arrest or detain people at a diplomatic mission, he said, and noted that no such thing had ever happened in Turkey's history".
Riyadh has denied Khashoggi was killed or detained on its Istanbul premises, and claims that the veteran journalist left the consulate shortly after entering. That's according to Turkey's state-owned news agency Anadolu.
Meanwhile, Britain urged the Saudi government to explain what happened.
Mr Khashoggi had been living in the U.S., where he contributed articles to the Washington Post's opinion section.
Washington Post columnist David Ignatius recently noted that his friend Khashoggi had endured a crisis of conscience past year when MBS was jailing and torturing his Saudi friends.
"I don't like hearing about it", President Donald Trump said of Khashoggi's disappearance on Monday.
Aktay went on to say Turkish authorities believe a group of 15 Saudi nationals were "most certainly involved" in the journalist's disappearance.
There was no immediate comment on the report from the Saudi authorities.
The Foreign Ministry said Saudi authorities have notified Ankara they are "open to co-operation" and will allow the consulate building to be searched. Cengiz called on President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to "help shed light" on Khashoggi's disappearance.
"Yes, this is of serious concern, the apparent enforced disappearance of Mr. Khashoggi from the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul", UN human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told a Geneva news briefing.
