Jamal Khashoggi's family is 'traumatized,' wants 'independent' and 'international' probe

Saudi investigators enter the consulate before Turkish forensic police arrive Istanbul Turkey

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is still missing, almost two weeks after he entered the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul.

Reports in the USA media suggest that Saudi officials are set to admit that Mr Khashoggi was killed during an interrogation that went wrong, but neither King Salman, or his son and power behind the throne, Crown Prince Mohammed, had ordered Mr Khashoggi's death. That was the last time the dissident journalist was seen - and Ankara says it has audio and video proof that he was murdered inside the building.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, has gone missing since he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2. Spokespeople from Lockheed, Boeing and Raytheon did not immediately respond to requests for comment on whether their executives would attend the conference. Most recently Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi announced he will no longer be attending the event, saying, "I'm very troubled by the reports to date about Jamal Khashoggi".

Turkish officials have said they believe Khashoggi - a Washington Post contributor who was critical of Prince Mohammed's policies - was killed inside the mission, and lurid claims have even been leaked that he was tortured and even dismembered.

Saudi Arabia unapologetically flogs, imprisons - and occasionally, crucifies - people for committing the crime of "homosexual intercourse".

But no one in Washington, D.C., has ever been at a cocktail party with a starving Yemeni child, and so Riyadh's offenses against such children did not threaten the U.S. -Saudi alliance.

Turkish forensics and police officers arrive to the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on October 15, 2018, to search the premises in the investigation over missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"So far the oil market is withstanding the verbal war and though prices are slightly higher. they are a good $5 below the peak last week", said Fiona Cincotta, analyst at City Index.

The U.S. president gave no evidence to support the theory.

"I sounded to me like maybe there could have been rogue killers". Trump dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Saudi Arabia to meet with the country's leader King Salman.

Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said Saudi Arabia had not cooperated in the investigation, despite proposing to create the joint working group with Turkish authorities. It said one of the sources told them that the intention was to abduct Khashoggi and it had not been authorized by the Saudi government. We have seen Saudi Arabia killing Naser al-Sa'id in 1979 in Lebanon - he was kidnapped, taken back to Saudi Arabia and was killed.

"It has been 13 days since the event, so surely proving some of the evidence might be hard, but we believe we will obtain evidence", a Turkish official told Reuters.

The Glover Park Group notified the Saudi Embassy that it was canceling its two-year-old contract, according to a person with knowledge of the move who spoke on the condition of anonymity to describe private conversations.
