Erdogan adviser Aktay says missing Saudi journalist killed in Istanbul consulate

Turkey's forensic analysis examined all the CCTV footage for the consulate entrances and exits, for the area around the consulate, and at the airport, and could find no sign of Khashoggi.

Erdogan described the missing man, who had lived in the U.S. for the past year, as "a journalist and a friend", and added: "God willing we will not be faced with a situation we do not desire".

"I have raised Jamal's disappearance personally with the Saudi ambassador, and while we await more information, know we will respond accordingly to any state that targets journalists overseas", Corker wrote on Twitter.

Protesters gathered outside the Saudi consulate on Monday with banners reading "We will not leave without Jamal Khashoggi", demanding to know what had happened to him.

A Turkish government source told AFP over the weekend that police believe the journalist "was killed by a team especially sent to Istanbul and who left the same day".

Hence, Reuters published an "Exclusive report" that cited a theory, and weak, unnamed sources claiming that Turkish police believe Saudi journalist Khashoggi was killed in consulate.

Qatari citizens openly criticized the false and fabricated media stories by the regime's mouthpieces in Doha since the disappearance of Khashoggi in Istanbul.

Moulay Hicham recalled recent news reports, which alleged that the Saudi journalist was tortured and murdered "at the hands of his own countrymen at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul".

Azzam Tamimi, a friend who had lunch with Khashoggi in London on the day before he went to the consulate in Istanbul, said in an interview Sunday that he had been reassured about entering the consulate by his warm reception on an earlier surprise visit.

He added that as someone who had spent half of his life under Soviet rule, "I know what I am talking about". The EU is about freedom and human rights, prosperity and peace.

This group is considered to have a connection with the disappearance of Khashoggi.

Turan Kislakci, the head of Turkish-Arab Media Association and a friend of Khashoggi told the New York Times that he spoke to Turkish officials about the case.

Prince Salman's interview came a day after Trump told a crowd of supporters at a rally in Southaven, Mississippi, that Saudi King Salman would not last in power unless the US provided military support for the kingdom. "Jamal was - or, as we hope, is - a committed, courageous journalist".

A Turkish official told Reuters that police believe the dissident was killed in a "premeditated" murder, before his body was moved out of the consulate.

The source further said that the interrogators later dismembered his body and the Saudi nationals took interrogation video with themselves to brief Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on his death, the source said.

Human and women's rights activists, intellectuals and clerics have been arrested - meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is waging a war in Yemen that has triggered a humanitarian crisis.

"The Turkish authorities have demanded to be allowed to search inside the consulate but they are still waiting for a response from the Saudi side", Mr Aktay told The Telegraph.

Khashoggi had been intending to obtain a document to certify that he had divorced his ex-wife in order to be able to marry his Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, who reportedly waited outside the building for 11 hours when he did not return. Turkey's support of political Islamists, like the Muslim Brotherhood, also angers leaders in Riyadh and Abu Dhabi, which label the organization a "terrorist group" threatening their hereditarily ruled nations. "He is a journalist but he was also from the Saudi establishment before the present Crown Prince came". I said nothing. I didn't want to lose my job or my freedom. He went into self-imposed exile in the United States following the ascension of Prince Mohammed, now next in line to succeed his father, the 82-year-old King Salman.
