What happened to Jamal Khashoggi?

ABC News, quoting a senior Turkish official, reported Thursday that during his visit to Turkey this week Pompeo heard this audio and was shown a transcript of the recording.

Khashoggi, a longtime Saudi critic, has not been seen publicly since he walked into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2.

"The secretary addressed this yesterday". "I will not be going", he said.

However, the State Department denied that Pompeo had listened to the audio tape.

President Trump has been publicly asking to hear the recording. He said Saudi officials, including the crown prince and his father King Salman, had promised a transparent probe.

Trump, who has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and the 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, acknowledged for the first time on Thursday that Khashoggi, a United States resident and Washington Post columnist, had likely been killed.

But he says the consequences for the Saudis "will have to be very severe" if they are found to have killed him.

And, it’s important to account for the time and effort spent by administrative staff handling these denied claims. They also have the potential to adversely affect patients’ opinions about the organization.

"I don't want to speculate on my worst fears".

It "certainly looks" as though missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead, Donald Trump has admitted.

U.S. officials denied that the payment had anything to do with Pompeo's visit or Khashoggi, though a source told The New York Times that the timing of the deposit "was no coincidence".

But Turkish officials claimed to have discovered evidence of a crime inside the consulate where Khashoggi was last seen.

The official told The Associated Press on Friday that police have established that two vehicles belonging to the Saudi consulate left the building on October 2 - the day Khashoggi had walked into the consulate and vanished. Khashoggi arrived at the consulate several hours later at 1:14 p.m., then disappeared while his fiancee waited for him outside.

On Wednesday and Thursday, Turkish investigators spent nearly nine hours searching the Saudi consul's residence, before moving on to the consulate itself about 200m away, according to Reuters news agency. It certainly looks that way, ' the US President said today in Washington DC.

Thrive's Ariana Huffington, the LA Times' Patrick Soon-Shiong, MasterCard's Ajay Banga, UK trade minister Liam Fox, JPMorgan Chase's Jamie Dimon and World Bank President Jim Yong Kim were among the other major business and government leaders who said this week that they would no longer attend, CNNBusiness reports.

Turkish authorities suspect Mr Khashoggi's killers may have disposed of his body by dissolving it in acid. He was visiting the consulate to file paperwork for his upcoming wedding, and his fiancee waited for him in a vehicle outside the consulate.

Kushner's close relationship with Saudi crown prince has been the subject of media scrutiny in recent days and has been linked to his reported unwillingness to make waves with MBS.
