Pompeo in Turkey for talks on missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi

Pompeo in Turkey for talks on missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi”

There has been no evidence to substantiate Khashoggi had such ties. Some reports have indicated the Saudi regime may soon acknowledge that Khashoggi died in an interrogation gone wrong.

The Saudi authorities have denied involvement and allowed Turkish authorities to search the consulate for nine hours on Monday.

But it was delayed because no Saudi official was present for the joint investigation, the Turkish official added.

A Turkish security source said the search of the consulate provided "strong evidence" but no conclusive proof that Khashoggi was killed there. Saudi Arabia has previously insisted he left the building alive, but Cengiz says she never saw him again.

Turkish officials say they fear a Saudi hit team killed Khashoggi, who has been missing almost two weeks.

Khashoggi, a veteran journalist and Washington Post columnist, vanished on 2 October after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to pick up paperwork so he could remarry.

Turkey released the names and identities of 15 Saudis who are allegedly involved in journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance and likely death.

One of the passport scans appears to belong to Salah Muhammad al-Tubaiqi, listed as the head of forensic medicine at the Saudi Ministry of Interior.

"Just spoke with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia who totally denied any knowledge of what took place in their Turkish Consulate", Trump tweeted. Turkish officials fear he was killed and dismembered.

Sen. Lindsey Graham said Tuesday on Fox News that he wants to see Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman forced out of his position after the mysterious disappearance of activist Jamal Khashoggi.

Earlier Tuesday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan suggested investigators were looking into possibility that evidence of toxic materials had been concealed. "They made a commitment to do that", he told reporters traveling with him after boarding the plane for Ankara.

Meanwhile, Turkish forensic investigators overnight searched the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, where Khashoggi disappeared October 2.

Turkish police did not search the Saudi consul's Istanbul residence on Tuesday, officers at the scene said, because Saudi officials were not able to join. Leaked surveillance video show diplomatic cars travelled to the consul general's home shortly after Khashoggi went into the consulate.

Pompeo was to have a dinner Tuesday night with Prince Mohammed and was expected to fly to Turkey on Wednesday. "We need to know what has happened, and those responsible need to be held to account", Freeland said.

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