A Turkish newspaper reported October 18 that Turkish police will extend the search for missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to a forest in Istanbul and a farm house in the neighboring province of Yalova.
Turkey's justice minister said Thursday his government's investigation into the disappearance and alleged murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi will wrap up soon, as police reportedly expanded their hunt for clues to new areas outside of Istanbul.
"The Post held off publishing it because we hoped Jamal would come back to us so that he and I could edit it together", she wrote. But, she wrote, "Now I have to accept: That is not going to happen". Khashoggi had left the country past year amid the rise of Prince Mohammed, whom he wrote critically about in the Post.
The chilling details of what is believed by some to have occurred at the Saudi consulate in Ankara were revealed by a senior Turkish official who described the content of an audio recording to the New York Times.
He has not been seen since, and Turkish officials say they have evidence that he was killed and dismembered by Saudi agents.
The newspaper said it gathered more information about the suspects through facial recognition software, a database of Saudi cellphone numbers, leaked Saudi government documents, witnesses and media. Riyadh denies the claims.
Several US media outlets said Monday that the Saudis are preparing a report that Khashoggi's death resulted from a botched interrogation, but there has yet to be any sign of this being published.
"They are hesitant to provide a platform for journalists from Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Yemen".
When one reporter asked why the Saudi rulers should be trusted to investigate themselves, Pompeo said the United States would get the chance to determine the credibility of their probe.
International Monetary Fund managing director Christine Lagarde will not attend an investment conference in Riyadh, as global concern over the disappearance of a Saudi journalist grows.
But he began to fear for his safety previous year as Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman moved to consolidate power, arresting fellow princes and businessmen - including friends of Khashoggi.
In his brief comments to reporters, Pompeo also stressed the "longstanding strategic relationship" between the US and Saudi Arabia.
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet on Tuesday urged the Governments of Saudi Arabia and Turkey to "reveal everything they know" about the disappearance and a possible extra-judicial killing of the prominent journalist.
They had searched the Saudi consulate for nine hours.
Turkish police on Wednesday also carried out a search of the residence of the Saudi consul to Istanbul, Mohammed al-Otaibi, a day after he flew out of Istanbul for Riyadh.
"His voice and his ideas will reverberate, from Turkey to Saudi Arabia, and across the world", Cengiz added. Pompeo was criticized on social media for images from his meetings with Saudi officials that showed him smiling broadly.
