US Calls for "Transparent" Saudi Probe into Journalist’s Disappearance

Turkish newspaper names 15 Saudis in case of missing reporter

Turkey said Tuesday that it will search the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul as it investigates why journalist Jamal Khashoggi vanished there a week ago, an extraordinary inquiry into a diplomatic post over Turkish officials' fears that the writer had been killed inside the building.

Khashoggi's Turkish fiance, Hatice Cengiz, who was waiting outside, said he never re-appeared.

Turkish authorities say Mr Khashoggi was killed.

Britain and the United States are considering boycotting a major global conference in Saudi Arabia after the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the BBC has learned.

Lawmakers have been making increasingly strong statements regarding the U.S. -Saudi relationship this week after reports that the kingdom sought to silence one of its most outspoken critics. "We are demanding everything".

'We want to see what's going on. And we're in contact with her now, and we want to bring her to the White House.

Larry Kudlow, director of the White House National Economic Council, said Sunday that Mr. Mnuchin still plans to attend the conference, which he described as a meeting on stopping terrorist financing.

"People saw him go in and didn't see him come out". It's a very bad situation. 'Although this incident could potentially fuel a political crisis between the two nations, let us not lose sight of the human aspect of what happened, ' she added. "Violence against journalists should be condemned, but at this point, we don't know what happened".

Sen. Bob Corker, the chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, said in a tweet Monday that he had spoken with the Saudi ambassador. And frankly I think that would be a very, very tough pill to swallow for our country.

"If it did happen there would be hell to pay", Graham said.

Health officials report 6 cases of rare, polio-like virus in Minnesota
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC ) said there have been a confirmed 38 cases across 16 states in 2018 so far. We have not confirmed the cause for the majority of these cases. "We're doing everything we can to keep the muscles healthy".

Reportedly, Turkish authorities say a team of Saudis killed Khashoggi, and US intelligence intercepts show Saudi officials discussing an operation to lure Khashoggi - a Saudi citizen who had been living in the United States - back to Saudi Arabia from his home in Virginia and detain him.

Trump threatened Riyadh on Saturday with "severe punishment" if Khashoggi, a contributor for the Washington Post who has been critical of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed inside its Istanbul consulate.

"We can not remain silent to such an incident", he also said. She says she has not seen him since then.

Aksam newspaper also published blurred photos of a jet arriving in Istanbul before dawn on October 2, carrying what it said were nine members of the Saudi team, as well as images of some of them checking in at a hotel.

In his last interview three days before his disappearance, Khashoggi said that he did not think he would return to Saudi Arabia. The 15 Saudis left Turkey at four different times, the Sabah report said.

State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino earlier insisted that the United States had no forewarning of any concrete threat to Khashoggi.

Saudi Arabia has denied the allegations. "I also urge Saudi Arabia, especially King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to show the same level of sensitivity and CCTV footage from the consulate".

In both phone calls, the USA officials asked for more details and for the Saudi government's transparency in its investigation, Sanders said.

US Vice President Mike Pence said on Wednesday the US was ready to help in any way in the investigation.

With every day, leaks from the Turkish investigation are drip-fed to the media here - and hope that Jamal Khashoggi might still be alive fades further.
