The disappearance of a Saudi Arabian journalist is a mystery. He was last seen at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. He went there to get marriage documents. He spent eleven hours there. Turkish investigators searched the consulate for clues. Pressure is on Saudi to explain what happened to Mr Khashoggi. Turkish officials say Saudi agents murdered him. They flew to Turkey earlier this month. The Saudis deny this.

There is a huge outcry over the disappearance. Donald Trump threatened "severe punishment" if Saudi was involved. He spoke to Saudi's Crown Prince, who said he strongly denied knowledge of what happened to Mr Khashoggi. The prince's denial was "very strong". Mr Trump suggested "rogue killers" may be behind it all. Turkey's president said he hoped to reach a conclusion, "as soon as possible because the investigation is looking into many things".
