Exiled Egyptian opposition leader expresses fear after Khashoggi disappearance

Jamal Khashoggi has been missing since visiting the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul Oct. 2. Turkish officials fear that the team killed the writer, who was critical of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

The New York Times cited a Turkish official who said Khashoggi was killed and dismembered by a team of Saudi agents.

"The Saudi journalist and commentator Turad Al Amri has been missing since November 2016".

Brunson, a pastor for the last 20 years at the Evangelical Resurrection Church in western Turkey's Izmir, was arrested on alleged links to the PKK terrorist group and the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), who orchestrated an attempted coup on July 15, 2016; however, he was later put on house arrest. Saudi officials insisted, albeit without corroborating evidence, that the columnist for The Washington Post left the building through another exit. "That's why I want to say, we don't want to make any judgments about what happened, and we call for a thorough and transparent investigation".

While living in Saudi Arabia, Khashoggi was told to stop writing or posting on Twitter, where he has more than 1.6 million followers.

Nour criticised Trump for his apparent willingness to ally with the "tyrannies" in the Middle East, a position he said damages the US's standing in the world.

They urged Trump to consider any information in the investigation "including with respect to the highest ranking officials in the Government of Saudi Arabia". Sabah newspaper published the names and years of birth of 15 Saudis it said arrived at Istanbul's Ataturk airport on October 2.

Twelve of them arrived early on Tuesday, based on photos captured at passport control which were published.

"If this man was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, that would cross every line of normality in the global community", Graham said. He moved to the United States more than a year ago, where he continued to comment on his country both in print and on television.

Investigators have not found his body, but Turkish officials have released video surveillance footage of Khashoggi entering the consulate on the afternoon of October 2. Bob Corker of Tennessee that they "only livestream their tapes".

"Riyadh is our only rational (Arab) partner because they agree with most of our long-term goals", said Hussein Ibish, with the Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington. Shortly after midday it said several cars entered the consulate building. The footage shows Khashoggi entering the consulate.

In Washington, Corker said he doubted accounts from Saudi officials that security cameras at the consulate did not record any images.

"And so to me it feels very much like some nefarious activity has occurred by them", Corker added, according to The Beast.

"We don't know what happened", he said.

"It's a very serious situation for us and this White House", Trump said. His move to the USA was prompted by concerns he'd be detained in Saudi Arabia or banned from travel as he became increasingly alienated from the leadership. "We plan to take some actions ourselves on this, something we can do without passing legislation".
