"I spoke to the crown prince, so you have that. I spoke to the king yesterday, the crown prince, today wanting to know what was going on, what was happening, and he said very strongly that he and his father knew nothing about it". There has been no evidence to substantiate Khashoggi had such ties.

Turkey has wanted to search the consulate for days. "I have to find out what happened", he said.

"We had direct and candid conversations", Pompeo said of his meetings with the Saudi King Salman, his son Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir.

A Turkish security source said the search of the consulate provided "strong evidence" but no conclusive proof that Khashoggi was killed there. Saudi Arabia did not immediately acknowledge he had left or offer a reason for his departure. "I think there needs to be a full-fledged worldwide investigation, and it appears to me that the Saudi story, even in the last 24 hours, has been changing to where they may be acknowledging that the journalist Khashoggi was murdered, but somehow presenting the notion that it was rogue elements".

The New York Times reported that four of the 15 people named by the Turkish authorities as suspects in Khashoggi's disappearance have links to the crown prince, while another is a senior figure in the country's Interior Ministry.

State-run Anadolu Agency quoted Erdogan as saying Turkey wished a "result that allows us to reach an opinion" as to what happened to the journalist. Turkish officials fear he was killed and dismembered.

Michelle Bachelet made the comment on Tuesday as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Saudi Arabia to talk to King Salman about Khashoggi's disappearance.

There are no reports of injuries, he said. "So far, we're OK-the weather being so nice", Dennis Hougham, another resident, said. In an earlier news release, Enbridge said it is working with other companies to find alternate supplies of gas to meet demand.

"The investigation is looking into many things such as toxic materials and those materials being removed by painting them over", Erdogan told reporters.

Surveillance footage leaked in Turkish media shows vehicles moving between the consulate and the consul's home after Khashoggi's disappearance.

The Turkish delegation, including police and prosecutors, searched the Saudi consulate on Monday after Riyadh gave the green-light.

The fifth suspect is an autopsy expert, Salah al-Tubaigy, who the Times said identified himself on his Twitter account as the head of the Saudi Scientific Council of Forensics.

The United Nations' high commissioner for human rights is urging Saudi Arabia and Turkey to "reveal everything they know about the disappearance and possible extrajudicial killing" of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi. Although the claim against Allen has been public knowledge for years, the #MeToo movement has spurred many actors who have worked with him to publicly announce they would not do so again, including Michael Caine, Colin Firth, and Greta Gerwig.

Pompeo said Saudi leaders pledged to conduct a "thorough, transparent, and timely investigation".

"Whether we like it or not, the world needs Saudi Arabia ... if Saudi Arabia were to descend into the kind of chaos that's potentially there, it would make Syria look like a picnic", Horak told a Tuesday night meeting of the Canadian International Council in Ottawa.
