disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is descending into greater mystery. Mr Khashoggi was last seen at Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul, Turkey on October 2. He went there to process documents for his upcoming marriage. In latest move, Turkish investigators have searched Saudi consulate looking for clues. Saudi consul left Turkey earlier this week as pressure is growing on Saudi Arabia to give full explanation as to what happened to Mr Khashoggi. It is widely reported that journalist spent eleven hours in consulate. Turkish officials believe Mr Khashoggi was murdered by Saudi agents who flew to Turkey earlier this month. Saudis deny this.
disappearance has sparked international outcry. US President Donald Trump threatened "severe punishment" if Saudi Arabia was involved in any wrongdoing. President Trump spoke to Saudi's Crown Prince Salman on phone earlier this week. He said Prince Salman strongly denied any knowledge of whatever may have happened to Mr Khashoggi. Mr Trump said prince's denial was "very strong" and suggested that "rogue killers" may be behind Mr Khashoggi's possible death. Turkey's President Erdogan spoke about investigation in Turkish parliament. He said: "My hope is that we can reach conclusions...as soon as possible because investigation is looking into many things."
