Turkish police search Saudi consulate again in Khashoggi case

Sarah Sanders said merely that Washington

Leading human rights and journalists' organizations urged Turkey on Thursday to ask the United Nations to launch an investigation into the disappearance and "possible extrajudicial execution" of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he told President Donald Trump on Thursday that Saudi Arabia should be given a few more days to complete its investigation into the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi before the USA decides "how, or if" to respond.

Mr Trump has previously vowed to inflict "severe punishment" on Saudi Arabia if it was behind Mr Khashoggi's killing - but also said he is against cancelling military contracts with Riyadh.

US Treasury Secretary Seven Mnuchin announced that he would not be attending an investment conference in Saudi Arabia.

Officials from the board of cash-strapped state-owned enterprise Denel are anxious that behind-the-scenes lobbying and media pressure is pushing it into a deal with Saudi Arabia, without proper procedures being followed, the Mail & Guardian reported.

"There are more structural problems with the relationship (between the USA and Saudi Arabia) that relate to Mohammed bin Salman's consolidation of power", said Barbara A. Leaf, senior fellow at The Washington Institute and former US ambassador to the United Arab Emirates.

On the bilateral front, Canada's relationship with Saudi Arabia has deteriorated significantly since the summer.

"Unless the miracle of all miracles happens, I would acknowledge that he's dead", Trump said to The Times.

The State Department denied the report.

Turkish police are also investigating other consular vehicles that visited places in and around Istanbul immediately after the disappearance. "They are an important strategic alliance of the United States and we need to be mindful of that as well", he said.

Pompeo told reporters that he had just briefed the president on his visit to Ankara and Riyadh, where both the Saudi and Turkish governments reiterated their commitments to a full investigation. "If they knew about it, that would be bad", he said during an interview on Tuesday.

Turkish officials have openly claimed that Khashoggi was killed in the consulate, and that a group of 15 Saudi men flew to Istanbul around the time of Khashoggi's disappearance.

The summit is an initiative of Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, who is at the centre of the worldwide controversy surrounding Khashoggi, a strident critic of the prince, who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

"Here is the head of the execution team", said Sabah's headline, and the paper then detailed Mutreb's movements on the day Khashoggi went missing.
