United Nations experts are concerned that Khashoggi's disappearance and the allegations of Saudi Arabia's involvement are related to his criticism of Saudi policies. "We don't have any information on that", spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters adding: "We don't want to make any judgments about what happened".

"I don't like hearing about it, and hopefully that will sort itself out". Saudi officials insisted he left the building through another exit, but have not provided public evidence to prove it.

Turkey has requested a search of the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, after saying that a journalist was murdered within its walls.

Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi journalist, vanished October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. The Washington Post published Monday an image from a closed circuit television camera that a person close to the investigation said showed Khashoggi's last known seconds, as he stepped inside the consulate door.

He has written multiple columns recently in The Washington Post where he criticized Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The Saudi government has denied the allegation.

After three hours of waiting, Cengiz was told that Khashoggi had already left but she says "there's no proof that he came out".

President Donald Trump on Thursday said USA investigators are working with Turkish and Saudi officials to determine what happened to a Washington Post journalist believed to have been killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

President Trump has said he'll talk to Saudi Arabian officials about the missing journalist at some point.

At least one American lawmaker, Democrat Senator Chris Murphy, said on Twitter, "If this is true - that the Saudis lured a United States resident into their consulate and murdered him - it should represent a fundamental break in our relationship with Saudi Arabia".

Turkey's private NTV news channel identified one member of the alleged 15-member team as the head of a Saudi forensic science agency.

"We call on the government of Saudi Arabia to support a thorough investigation of Mr Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation", Pompeo said in a statement.

"We have seen conflicting reports on the safety and whereabouts of prominent Saudi journalist and Washington Post contributor Jamal Khashoggi", Pompeo said in an October 8 statement.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has called for Saudi officials to prove their contention that Khashoggi left the consulate, as most accounts say the last he was seen was entering the building.

The two Turkish sources told Reuters on Saturday that Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi was deliberately killed inside the consulate, a view echoed by one of Erdogan's advisers, Yasin Aktay, who is a friend of the Saudi journalist.

Margaux Ewen, the executive director of Reporters Without Borders North America, said she was encouraged that Trump expressed concern but wished his statements had been stronger.

Jamal Khashoggi's fiancee Hatice Cengiz said she believes he is still alive.

He proposed the Saudi people pave the ground for transferring power to Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, the Saudi King Salman's younger brother who is in exile in Britain, and form a new government based on the constitution. While a military conflict is not likely to arise between Turkey and Saudi Arabia, this new development will place more strain on the relationship, further complicating the already hard situation in the Middle East.
