Saudi men linked to Jamal Khashoggi disappearance leave a hotel

Turkey has called on Saudi officials to provide evidence that he left the consulate, as they claim, CNN reported.

The Turkish leadership has so far stopped short of accusing Saudi Arabia, although pro-government media have published sensational claims, including that an "assassination team" was sent to Istanbul to kill Khashoggi.

The kingdom has maintained the allegations against it are "baseless".

Now, President Trump is threatening "severe punishment" for Saudi Arabia if suspicions of Khashoggi's murder are confirmed - and Saudis have vowed to retaliate in kind.

President Donald Trump declared Friday the USA will uncover the truth about what happened to journalist and US resident Jamal Khashoggi, whose possible murder at Saudi hands after disappearing in Istanbul has captured worldwide attention.

"He knew the time is getting very close for him to be arrested, and he chose to leave Saudi Arabia and go to Washington to be able to speak his mind and not be arrested", Okda said. Trump added in excerpts of the "60 Minutes" interview that will air on Sunday "we would be very upset and angry if that were the case". Trump promised to personally call Saudi Arabia's King Salman soon about 'the awful situation in Turkey'.

Sen. Marco Rubio argued on Sunday that the United States' "moral credibility" is on the line when it comes to its response to the alleged Saudi involvement in the disappearance and possible murder of a Washington Post columnist in Turkey.

And this was the reason for him to make the first overseas trip to Saudi Arabia past year, he said. But Mr Khashoggi's disappearance has led several business leaders and media outlets to back out of the upcoming investment conference in Riyadh called the Future Investment Initiative.

"I am planning on going at this point", Mnuchin said on Friday of the investment conference, which is slated to start in Riyadh on 23 October.

Mr Trump said: "There's a lot at stake".

Sabah also reported that investigation units were now examining all cell phone and landline records from the consulate and the consul general's residence on 2 October.

Cengiz, who was waiting outside the consulate, says she did not see him re-emerge.

The reports say the watch recorded not only Khashoggi's interrogation and torture, but also his murder.

He said Saudi Arabia, which has a leading position in the Arab and Islamic worlds, has played a prominent role throughout history in achieving the security, stability and prosperity of the region and the world.
