Canada concerned over reports Saudi journalist killed - The Jakarta Post

He'd been living in the United States in self-imposed exile.

Trump said that U.S. economic success was due in part to "what we are doing with our defense systems", and added: "Frankly I think that would be a very, very tough pill to swallow for our country."Investigation continuesTurkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan told reporters Thursday that Turkey "cannot remain silent" on the disappearance of Khashoggi".

Pictures of Saudi journalist Khashoggi are placed on security barriers during a protest outside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey October 8, 2018.

According to Turkish personnel, a 15-man team flew from Saudi Arabia to Istanbul the same day Khashoggi visited the embassy, arriving there through two private planes.

Saudi Arabia calls the accusation "baseless", but has also offered nothing to prove he ever left the building.

A spokesman for President Recep Tayyip Erdogan (REH'-jehp TY'-ihp UR'-doh-wahn) of Turkey tells the state-run Anadolu Agency that Turkey and Saudi Arabia have agreed to set up the group to jointly "shed light" on the incident.

The Met Office has issued a number of weather warnings for the unsettled conditions that impact large parts of the country. South Wales will get up to a month's worth of rain on Friday and Saturday, and double that in high and exposed locations.

That Saudi Arabia would allow foreigners to enter a consulate and search it shows the growing worldwide pressure the kingdom faces over the disappearance of Mr Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Arabia and contributor to the Washington Post.

Saudi Arabia insists Khashoggi exited the consulate after a brief visit.

Khashoggi was at the consulate to obtain paperwork so he could marry his Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz.

Turkish prosecutors have launched a probe into the whereabouts of the Saudi journalist. While it has always been apparent that common values are not shared by all American allies, can we still remain partners when journalists go missing, presumed murdered? They checked into two hotels in Istanbul, the paper said.

A Saudi-led coalition has been at war with Yemen's Iran-aligned Houthi rebels since March 2015.

On Thursday, President Trump told reporters that the White House is looking "very strongly" at Khashoggi's disappearance.

Banners read, "We will not leave without Jamal Khashoggi". "I don't think I will be able to go home", he said, when asked whether he thought he could return to Saudi Arabia.

Trump isn't providing any details on an investigation.

The newspaper cited US intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials discussing the plan. "Maybe we'll be pleasantly surprised, but somehow I doubt it". Trump on Thursday described the relationship as "excellent". "We can't let it happen", Trump said.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that the State Department has been communicating with Saudi Arabia regarding the issue and is calling on Saudi Arabia to support an investigation. Jamal's well being, as a Saudi citizen, is our utmost concern and we are focusing on the investigation as a means to reveal the truth behind his disappearance. Speaking with "Fox News @ Night" Wednesday night, Trump warned such a move "would be hurting us".

There's been a long history of close U.S. -Saudi relations, and those have intensified under Trump.

Khashoggi is a Washington Post columnist and former general manager and editor-in-chief of Al Arab News Channel. He entered the consulate in Istanbul last Tuesday to get documents for his forthcoming marriage.

His disappearance was disclosed by French officials on Friday but China had remained tight-lipped about his status until now. China on Sunday confirmed that it was holding Interpol chief Meng Hongwei for investigation into possible criminal activity.
