Photo surfaces of doomed reporter walking into Saudi Consulate

Canada concerned over reports Saudi journalist killed - The Jakarta Post Alleged Saudi Murder of Washington Post Columnist Prompts Calls to Halt U.S. Relations with Regime

Turkey's state-run news agency, quoting police, says 15 Saudi nationals arrived in Istanbul on two planes and were inside the consulate building when Khashoggi went missing.

Saudi Arabia has called the allegations baseless.

Turkish officials fear Mr Khashoggi was killed by the Saudis after walking into the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul on October 2, though they have not offered any evidence to support that.

She said she waited outside for him to come out and then realized something was wrong around 4 p.m. because the consulate closed at 3:30 p.m.

Over the past year Khashoggi used his platform as a Washington Post columnist to criticize the policies of Saudi Arabia's powerful young crown prince, from the war in Yemen to the arrest of women's rights advocates.

The Times report, which cited a senior official in the Ankara government, said Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi was murdered on orders from "the highest levels of the royal court" in Riyadh.

US President Donald Trump and European leaders all have called on Riyadh to explain what happened to the 59-year-old journalist.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia on October 9 invited Turkish experts and relevant officials to visit its Istanbul consulate.

Turkey said Tuesday it would search the Saudi Consulate. "Is it possible that camera systems didn't exist at the Saudi Consulate, where the incident took place?"

Khashoggi entered the consulate last Tuesday and has not been heard of or seen since, according to his fiancée and friends.

"We're looking at it very, very seriously".

Mr Khashoggi had gone to the consulate to collect divorce papers relating to his previous marriage, leaving his fiancee with his Saudi phone on the street outside.

Two Turkish prosecutors have been assigned to manage the planned search at the consulate building, state media reported.

He added: "We trust the government and the actions taken, and all the efforts that are taken in the case of Jamal Khashoggi". Turkey has been given permission to search the diplomatic post, an extraordinary development that shows the increasing worldwide pressure the kingdom faces over Khashoggi's disappearance.

Trump says in a television interview that "we have investigators over there and we're working with Turkey and frankly we're working with Saudi Arabia". But they appear in jeopardy by the suggestion of a carefully plotted murder of a Saudi government critic, Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump visited Saudi Arabia on his first global trip as president and announced $110 billion in proposed arms sales to the country.

"Those who ask Turkish authorities where he is should first be asking 'how did this happen?'" Erdogan said during a press briefing in Hungary.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said this week that the kingdom would allow Turkey to search the consulate for Khashoggi.
