Timeline on the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi

Congress and Western allies demand answers on fate of journalist as Saudi Arabia balks

Trump, after speaking on Monday with King Salman, said without offering evidence that the slaying could have been carried out by "rogue killers". The interrogation was meant to lead to his abduction from Turkey, the news channel said citing two unnamed sources.

"I know Jewish people don't like this comparison, but everyone has his own Holocaust", he said.

Mr. Khashoggi, a USA resident, Washington Post columnist and leading critic of the powerful Saudi Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul nearly two weeks ago to get marriage documents. Turkish officials say they believe he was murdered there and his body removed.

King Salman emphasised the importance of the Turkey-Saudi relationship and said no one should be able to "undermine the strength of this relationship", Saudi's official media reported.

Saudi officials have repeatedly denied any knowledge of the journalist's whereabouts, but Turkish officials claim they have evidence to prove the Saudi dissident was killed while inside the consulate.

He claimed there were over 10,000 political prisoners in Saudi Arabia, a majority of whom had been tortured, including social activists and Islamic scholars who did not support the crown prince.

The case has provoked an worldwide outcry against Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, with more media and business executives pulling out of a planned investment conference there this month.

If the Trump administration, K Street, and D.C.'s foreign policy Establishment cares about the reality of the Saudis' actions, this cover story won't fly.

Mr. Trudeau also said talk of Canadian sanctions on Saudi Arabia is premature.

Khashoggi is feared to have been killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. They provided no further details.

Mr Khashoggi's fate has troubled Washington and Saudi Arabia's other traditional Western allies. "It sounded to me like maybe these could have been rogue killers".

The Saudi "autocratic regime", he said, must come to an end as there was no place for such regimes in the modern world.

Riyadh's most recent comments have focused on having no knowledge of any killing or denying any order to kill Khashoggi had been given.

But no one in Washington, D.C., has ever been at a cocktail party with a starving Yemeni child, and so Riyadh's offenses against such children did not threaten the U.S. -Saudi alliance.

But late Monday evening-after Turkish authorities placed high iron barriers in front of the consulate-a motorcade of six cars drew up and Turkish police and prosecutors entered the premises.

Pompeo was in the air when a Turkish police forensics team wrapped up its hours-long search of the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul early Tuesday morning.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, former AOL CEO and venture capitalist Steve Case, and Google Android creator Andy Rubin all pulled out last week after multiple reports linked the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi in Turkey to the Saudi government after he failed to emerge from a visit to the Saudi embassy in Istanbul, according to Bloomberg.

A Saudi official, not authorised to speak publicly, told Reuters that the king had ordered an internal investigation based on information from the joint team in Istanbul.

Speaking of the Holocaust, Khashoggi called the chapter a awful episode in history, but also said that there were other bad events throughout history, such as the burning of Baghdad by the Mongols in the Middle Ages or the Palestinian Nakba.
