Washington Post publishes possible last photo of missing Saudi journalist

Turkey has been given permission to search the diplomatic post, an extraordinary development that shows the increasing worldwide pressure the kingdom faces over Khashoggi's disappearance.

Since the disappearance of Khashoggi, activists and journalists have gathered by the Saudi consulate in Istanbul nearly every day in the last week to rally in support of the missing writer.

The two countries have such an obligation under both criminal law and global human rights law, she said.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said that officials at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul have to prove that Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi had left its building, at a time when Ankara asked to enter the consulate building for inspection.

He went to the consulate on 2 October to obtain paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, who was reportedly waiting outside the building for him.

He said then that Saudi Arabia is before "serious transformation that is going to involve and affect every Saudi". "We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate", one Turkish official told Reuters.

"I have to find out what happened", he said.

In his columns for the Washington Post and comments elsewhere, Khashoggi was critical of some policies of Mohammed Salman as well as Riyadh's role in the war in Yemen.

But Whitson said that "given that Saudi Arabia will not provide any evidence about Khashoggi's movements in and out of the consulate, they can not be trusted to conduct a genuine -- far less effective -- investigation".

It released McGregor's $3 million check, but has made a decision to file a complaint against him too after further review. I'm a human being. "Some people love that. but for me, it's a bad night". "This is for me very important".

Karen Attiah, an editor and journalist at the Washington Post and Khashoggi's editor also tweeted on the matter calling USA companies to "rethink" their relations with Saudi Arabia.

Khashoggi, a former Saudi government adviser, had been living in self-imposed exile in the United States since a year ago fearing possible arrest.

Turkish officials have not stated how they determined that Khashoggi was killed at the consulate.

In a new report, the newspaper said USA intelligence intercepts showed that Salman had ordered an operation to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia from his home in the US and then to detain him. While it has always been apparent that common values are not shared by all American allies, can we still remain partners when journalists go missing, presumed murdered?

He had no warrant for his arrest in Saudi Arabia and didn't think that the tensions between himself and the Saudi royal family were at a unsafe level.

Saudi Arabia has insisted the journalist left the building safely. "I mean, you're affecting us and, you know, they're always quick to jump that way".

Turkey summoned the Saudi ambassador on Sunday to request the kingdom's "full cooperation" in the investigation, a Foreign Ministry official said.

Aktay went on to say Turkish authorities believe a group of 15 Saudi nationals were "most certainly involved" in the journalist's disappearance.

The relationship between Saudi Arabia and Turkey has always been contentious.
