Washington Post publishes possible last photo of missing Saudi journalist

In an op-ed published by the Post late Tuesday, Khashoggi's fiancée wrote that the October 2 visit to the Saudi consulate was Khashoggi's second in the space of a few days.

"Consulate officials can't save themselves by saying, 'He left here.' And relevant authorities are obligated to provide proof of this claim", Erdogan said during a visit to Hungary.

Turkish authorities are set to search the site after announcing that Saudi Arabia had declared itself "open to co-operation" in the investigation, but no date has been announced for the search.

He added that investigations are still ongoing.

The Foreign Office has never had any illusions that the Saudi economic and social modernisation programme under the crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman, the de facto ruler, includes any commitment to free expression or a turn towards democracy. The Washington Post columnist and gadfly to the Saudi royal family disappeared a week ago after entering the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul to settle some paperwork. It has allowed journalists into the consulate to show Mr Khashoggi is not there, reportedly even opening cupboards.

Friends of Khashoggi had planned on Tuesday to hold a funeral prayer for him, which had been expected to turn into a demonstration against Saudi Arabia.

Turkey says it will conduct a search of Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul. "It would be a violation of worldwide law to harm, arrest or detain people at a diplomatic mission, he said, and noted that no such thing had ever happened in Turkey's history". While the oil-rich kingdom is spending millions of dollars to paint the crown prince as a reformist moderate, Congress is increasingly concerned over the humanitarian impact of the US-backed Saudi-led war in Yemen while Trump himself has ripped Riyadh amid rising oil prices.

The Foreign Secretary has today spoken to his Saudi counterpart, Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir, about the case of Jamal Khashoggi.

News agency Anadolu later reported that a private plane that had arrived from Saudi Arabia at Istanbul's Ataturk Airport was searched last Tuesday, the day Khashoggi was last seen.

"If a person walks into premises and if he isn't stepping out, then who has to prove it?"

Late last week, the Washington Post ran blank space where a column by dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who wrote for its Global Opinions section, should have appeared.

Turkish officials have previously said they believe that Khashoggi, a prominent journalist and critic of the Saudi government, was killed inside the consulate. Khashoggi also is a Washington Post contributor. "Right now, nobody knows anything about it, but there's some pretty bad stories going around".

Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and U.S. resident, had written articles critical of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. "Why don't you prove it, you have to prove it".

Khashoggi's disappearance could put pressure on the Saudi prince, who has promoted an image of himself as a reformer and a reliable Western ally.

Meanwhile, Turkish authorities are scouring motorway camera footage in the hopes of finding a black van they suspect carried Khashoggi's body out of the consulate.

Saudi Arabia said the allegations were baseless.

On Monday President Trump said that he was "concerned" about reports on Khashoggi's disappearance. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., tweeted Sunday that if "deeply disturbing" reports of Khashoggi's murder were confirmed, "The United States and the civilized world must respond strongly, and I will review all options in Senate".
