Saudi Arabia denies journalist killed at consulate in Turkey

Saudi Arabia denies journalist killed at consulate in Turkey”

But after several of his friends were arrested, his column was cancelled by the al-Hayat newspaper and he was allegedly warned to stop tweeting, Mr Khashoggi left Saudi Arabia for the US.

The president said police were examining CCTV footage of entrances and exits at the consulate and Istanbul airport.

On Monday, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the Saudi consulate "must and will" prove where Mr Khashoggi is, saying the Saudis "cannot save themselves" by claiming the outspoken journalist left the building.

In an op-ed published by the Post late Tuesday, Khashoggi's fiancée wrote that the October 2 visit to the Saudi consulate was Khashoggi's second in the space of a few days.

Amazon Raises Minimum Wage for U.S. Workers to $15 Per Hour
The move comes amid a national push from the labor-backed Fight for $15 movement to raise the minimum wage nationwide. For example, if an employee draws $US100 from food stamps , that person's employer would be taxed the same amount.

A Turkish official told the Reuters news agency that they fear Mr Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate in a premeditated murder and his body removed from the building. The Post, citing anonymous USA officials familiar with the intelligence, said Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered an operation to lure Khashoggi from his home in Virginia to Saudi Arabia and then detain him.

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".

US President Donald Trump and European leaders all have called on Riyadh to explain what happened to the 59-year-old journalist. Relations were already strained after Turkey sent troops to the Gulf state of Qatar previous year in a show of support after its Gulf neighbours, including Saudi Arabia, imposed an embargo on Doha. Saudi officials have denied the murder claims, insisting they are unaware of Khashoggi's whereabouts. A Saudi source familiar with four of the 15 men told CNN that one is a former diplomat in London and an intelligence officer, and another is a forensics expert. 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?

"There are other things we could do", he said.

New allegations against US Supreme Court nominee
Susan Collins of ME , a pivotal moderate who has not announced her position, said she was taking Ms Swetnick's claims seriously. Grassley also pointed out that numerous witnesses Ford has identified deny that the party in question took place.

Turkey has asked for permission to search Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, broadcaster NTV said on Monday.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has been documenting the increasingly harsh treatment of journalists in Saudi Arabia.

Last Wednesday, the Turkish Foreign Ministry summoned the Saudi ambassador to Ankara, Waleed Elkhereiji, to inquire about Khashoggi's situation. Bilateral relations are already strained over Ankara's political and military support for Qatar in the Saudi-led drive to isolate the tiny emirate and Turkey's close ties with the Muslim Brotherhood, which Riyadh considers a terrorist organization.

"He went in and doesn't look like he came out". No evidence of him leaving the consulate has been made public, but Turkish officials also have yet to provide evidence he was kidnapped or killed.

Christine Blasey Ford's lawyers say they paid for polygraph test
Associated Press writers Kevin Freking, Mary Clare Jalonick, Padmananda Rama, Matthew Daly, Julie Pace and AP photographers J. Kavanaugh replied that he doesn't even know Swetnick and that her accusations are "from the Twilight Zone".
