Turkey says will search consulate where Saudi journalist vanished

Saudi Arabian officials have invited Turkish experts and related officials to visit its consulate in Istanbul.

A video obtained by The Washington Post on Wednesday purports to lay out movements of the 15-man Saudi team that Turkish authorities suspect of carrying out the abduction or killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul last week.

The Khashoggi case puts the Trump administration unexpectedly on the side of Turkey, where two top government officials have been slapped with United States sanctions over the detention of an American pastor.

Turkish security officials say Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi was assassinated in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on orders from the royal court, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said the investigation was "continuing intensively", and that the Vienna Convention allowed for consulates to be searched by the authorities of the host country with the consent of the mission chief.

Saudi officials meant to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia, the Washington Post reported the source as saying, but it was unclear what they meant to do with him - and whether the USA ever warned Khashoggi of the threat he faced.

Turkish officials say the Washington Post contributor was killed at the consulate and that his body was later removed from the building, without providing evidence.

"We call on the government of Saudi Arabia to support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation", he said.

While a military conflict is not likely to arise between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, this new development will place more strain on the relationship, further complicating the already hard situation in the Middle East. CNN has not been able to independently confirm these reports, and the Saudi government has denied them.

The comments come in the wake of the disappearance of the journalist after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last week.

"If he left, you have to prove it with footage".

U.S. President Donald Trump has expressed concern about the writer's disappearance, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said U.S. officials have raised the matter with their Saudi counterparts. "This is a horrific escalation in the crown prince's campaign to silence dissent, to silence any criticism, even the mildest of criticism, from Saudis at home or overseas", says columnist for The Intercept Mehdi Hasan, who is also host of "UpFront" at Al Jazeera English, where he interviewed Khashoggi earlier this year.

United Nations rights office spokeswoman, Ravina Shamdasani, on Tuesday echoed calls for "a prompt, impartial and independent investigation of the circumstances of Mr Khashoggi's disappearance and to keep the findings public" in comments to journalists in Geneva.

The search will take place as part of the official investigation, which was being conducted "in an intense manner", he said without giving any date.

Asked if Khashoggi faces charges in Saudi Arabia, Bin Salman said it was first important to discover where he was. They, however, offered no specific evidence to back up their claim. The Post said "a person close to the investigation" shared the image with them. "It is (the duty) of the consulate officials", Mr Erdogan said during a visit to Hungary.

What are Turkey and Saudi Arabia saying?

"See, when I hear about an arrest of my friend who did nothing that worth to be arrested make me feel that I should not go home". "Hopefully that will sort itself out", the president added.

Spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani said in Geneva that it would be "truly shocking" if reports of his death are confirmed. "I know nothing right now".
