Saudi Journalist Killed, Dismembered at Consulate in Istanbul

Saudi Journalist Killed, Dismembered at Consulate in Istanbul Saudi Journalist Killed, Dismembered at Consulate in Istanbul

Turkish authorities believe Jamal Khashoggi, the missing Saudi Arabian journalist, was murdered inside the Kingdom's Istanbul consulate by a "special team" sent from Riyadh for the objective.

Turkish officials have said they believe Khashoggi, 59, a critic of the Saudi leadership and a contributor to The Washington Post's Global Opinions section, was killed by a team of 15 Saudis flown in specifically to carry out the attack.

But other Turkish officials have said they believe that Khashoggi was killed by Saudi agents inside the consulate.

Turkish officials have been drip-feeding details in the astonishing case of his alleged Saudi state-sponsored abduction and murder, but have yet to fulfil promises to release evidence relating to a black vehicle that left the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on the same day Khashoggi vanished last week.

Ankara announced on Saturday it had opened an official probe into his disappearance.

Other Turkish officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told outlets that they believed Khashoggi had been killed.

"The official strongly denounced these baseless allegations", the agency wrote, adding that a team of Saudi investigators were in Turkey working with local authorities. Turkish officials say they believe Khashoggi is being held inside the consulate building, which they can not search without an invitation.

President Donald Trump claimed Saudi Arabia would not last two weeks without USA support and therefore should be paying more for defense, but Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman rejected that, saying it would take "2,000 years" for his kingdom to struggle.

"We believe that all the armaments we have from the United States of America are paid for, it's not free armament", the Saudi crown prince said in a Bloomberg interview conducted on Wednesday and published on Friday. "But I said 'King - we're protecting you - you might not be there for two weeks without us - you have to pay for your military, '", Trump said.

A spokesperson for the US State Department said: "We are not in a position to confirm these reports, but we are closely following the situation". "We want to swiftly get results", he said, adding without explanation: "My expectation is still positive".

Khashoggi's disappearance could put pressure on the Saudi prince, who has promoted an image of himself as a reformer and a reliable Western ally. He writes out of a sense of love for his country and deep faith in human dignity and freedom'.

The Committee to Protect Journalists said it was alarmed by reports Khashoggi may have been killed inside the consulate. The IPO is at the center of Vision 2030, the crown prince's plan to diversify Saudi Arabia's economy and reduce its reliance on oil.

"We have a huge benefit from the first one", he said.

The potential assassination of a journalist on foreign soil raises questions over how the United States will confront Saudi Arabia, an ally the Trump administration has made significant outreach to.

But since the emergence of Prince Mohammed, 33, as the center of power in the kingdom previous year, Khashoggi has been openly critical of the monarchy.

Saudi Arabia invites a group of Reuters journalists into the six-story Istanbul mission in a bid to prove that Khashoggi is not on the premises or being detained inside the building.

The ultra-conservative kingdom in June lifted a ban on women driving, but it has drawn heavy criticism for its handling of dissent.
