An adviser to Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Sunday he believed prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who has been missing for six days, was killed in the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul.

In a meeting with The Washington Post's publisher, Fred Ryan, the Saudi ambassador to the United States said Sunday night that it was "impossible" that such a crime could be covered up by consulate employees "and we wouldn't know about it".

"His friends had warned him, 'Don't go there, it is not safe, ' but he said they could not do anything to him in Turkey", said Aktay.

Turkish police investigating the case of missing journalist had said in a statement Saturday that 15 Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and entered the consulate while Khashoggi was inside.

Two senior administration officials said the administration has no verifiable information to confirm the Turkish government claims that Khashoggi was killed but that the U.S. is seeking answers about his whereabouts - and talking to senior levels of Saudi government.

According to diplomatic sources, a diplomatic note was sent to the Turkish Foreign Ministry inviting Turkish officials to visit the consulate.

Erdogan said the prosecutor's investigation into the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi was continuing. "I don't like hearing about it and hopefully that will sort itself out". Turkey, it said, must back up its conclusion Khashoggi was killed by making public any evidence it has.

The Turkish government is looking into Khashoggi's disappearance.

Speaking from Ankara the same day, Erdogan said, "As president, I am pursuing". The Post said "a person close to the investigation" shared the image with them.

The country's foreign ministry said Saudi Arabia was "open to co-operation" and a requested search of the building could now go ahead as part of the investigation.

Private broadcaster NTV reported on October 9 that all suspects were seen entering the consulate half an hour before Khashoggi and leaving it after nearly three hours.

NBC's Richard Engel reported for Good Morning Europe about the growing concerns about Khashoggi.

But Khashoggi's fiancée is reportedly holding out hope, tweeting in Arabic late Saturday and translated by the Middle East Eye, "Jamal was not killed, and I don't believe that he was killed", the fiancée said.

"We demand from the global community to pressure Saudi Arabia and Mohammed bin Salman to tell us exactly what happened". It could cause the USA and Europe to reevaluate their relationships with Saudi Arabia, and with Turkish officials so enraged by this, it could trigger a more serious response.

The Turkish president had struck a measured tone when pressed on Khashoggi, while allowing government officials and state media to drip-feed allegations.

MEE has been told that Turkish police believe 15 Saudis who travelled to Istanbul on 2 October in two private jets are behind the alleged murder.
