US, Saudi Arabia agree on 'thorough' investigation of journalist's disappearance

Trump to Send Pompeo to Meet King as Saudis Open Khashoggi ProbeMore

Khashoggi, a critic of Prince Mohammed's regime, hasn't been seen since he entered the consulate October 2 to retrieve a document for his planned wedding.

Saudi Arabia and Turkey should "reveal everything" they know about Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance, a top United Nations human rights official has said while demanding a "thorough and impartial" probe into the whereabouts of the dissident Saudi journalist.

The search of the consul's residence came 15 days after Khashoggi's disappearance - and after police apparently thought they would be able to conduct the search on Tuesday.

"You know we need Saudi Arabia in terms of our fight against all of the terrorism, everything that's happening in Iran and other places", Trump told Fox Business in response to questions about the Khashoggi case.

That attitude does not appear to be shared with Congress, as one prominent Republican senator said he believed that the crown prince, widely known as MBS, had Mr Khashoggi "murdered".

President Donald Trump tells reporters that the US has requested audio and video relating to missing Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi from Turkey, stresses that Saudi Arabia is an important USA ally in the Middle East.

Erdogan made clear that Saudi Arabia is cooperating in the investigation, Pompeo said, the day after he met King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh.

A New York Times report, citing witnesses and other records, linked four suspects to Crown Prince Mohammed's security detail.

On Tuesday, a high-level Turkish official told the AP that police found "certain evidence" of Mr Khashoggi's murder at the consulate.

Trump told her "We're all looking at it together", referencing Saudi Arabia, Turkey and the U.S.

Even worker wages are finally showing signs of life after idling for most of the recovery that followed the housing crash. Third-quarter S&P 500 earnings are projected to soar by 20%. "I think the fundamentals are still very strong".

One person named by Turkish authorities, Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, has been photographed on trips with the Crown Prince this year, during his visits to Paris, Madrid, Boston, Massachusetts, and Houston, Texas.

Khalil Jahshan with the Arab Centre Washington D.C. says investigators have been leaking disturbing evidence to try and force the Saudis to admit they were involved.

Trump continued to stand by Saudi Arabia but said he is "not giving cover at all" to Riyadh, whom he repeatedly called a close USA ally. Mr al-Otaibi left Turkey on Tuesday afternoon, Turkish state media reported.

Al-Otaibi could be heard on the tape, telling those allegedly torturing Khashoggi: "Do this outside; you're going to get me in trouble", the newspaper reported.

Pompeo met Turkey's president and foreign minister to discuss Khashoggi's disappearance, a day after Trump gave Saudi Arabia the benefit of the doubt while United States lawmakers pointed the finger at the Saudi leadership.

Another alleged member of the squad, Tubaigy, holds a senior position in the Saudi interior ministry.

But he refused to say whether he thought Khashoggi was alive or dead or who could be responsible.

Until Monday, Riyadh had not allowed Turkish investigators to search the consulate, with reports both sides were at odds over the conditions.

A team of Turkish police spent more than nine hours in the consulate on October 15 and October 16 and the Associated Press reported that they found "certain evidence" about the killing of the prominent Saudi dissident.

Saudi Arabia has been under intense worldwide pressure to explain Khashoggi's apparent death, which has created a diplomatic rift between Saudi Arabia and the West.
