  • Sir Richard Branson freezes Saudi business ties over journalist's disappearance

A man speaks on the phone outside the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, Saturday, Oct. 13, 2018.

The Saudi journalist, Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi leadership disappeared on October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain paperwork for a wedding.

A delegation from Saudi Arabia arrived in Turkey on Friday, Turkish state news agency Anadolu reported, in connection with the investigation into Khashoggi's fate.

Ankara had said that a search of the consulate had been agreed but this has yet to materialise amid reports the two sides are at odds over the conditions of entry into what is Saudi sovereign territory.

The minister went on to praise a joint investigation with Turkey and said the kingdom wants to "clarify the whole truth" about Khashoggi's disappearance.

But, he has told CBS' "60 Minutes", "Could it be them?"

"We're going to get to the bottom of it, and there will be severe punishment", the president said.

"I'll tell you what I don't want to do", Trump said, "I don't want to hurt jobs. And you know what, there are other ways of punishing, to use a word that's a pretty harsh word, but it's true".

An outspoken critic of the Saudi government, Khashoggi published work in Western media outlets including the Washington Post. But the Washington Post reported that the Turkish government has told U.S. officials it has audio and video recordings proving he was tortured and killed inside the consulate.

The newspaper said authorities recovered the audio from Khashoggi's iPhone and his iCloud account.

Saudi Arabia insists Khashoggi left its consulate alive shortly after he entered.

Turkish officials have not answered queries from The Associated Press about Khashoggi's Apple Watch.

Turkish security sources say they have proof that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The statement said that Saudi's interior minister, Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif bin Abdulaziz, "stressed that what has been circulating in terms of supposed orders to kill Jamal are outright lies and baseless allegations against the Kingdom's government, which is committed to its principles, rules and traditions and is in compliance with global laws and conventions". Turkish officials have said they believe he was killed and dismembered there. US officials say they are seeking answers from the Saudi government and are not yet accepting the Turkish government's conclusions.
