UAE official slams "fierce campaign" against Saudi Arabia

AP Analysis: Missing writer shows Saudi Arabia’s dark side Saudi faces business backlash over Khashoggi disappearance

"We're being very tough and we have investigators over there and we're working with Turkey, and frankly we're working with Saudi Arabia".

He said they were made in NY, but gave no details about who was involved.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan demanded Monday that Saudi Arabia prove that journalist Jamal Khashoggi left the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on his own, as Saudi officials have repeatedly asserted, after he disappeared last week while inside the mission.

Khashoggi, 59, went missing while on a visit to the consulate in Istanbul for paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancée. However, all nine apparently checked out the same day and returned to the airport, where they flew on to the UAE. "I do not like it", he told reporters at the White House. Previously Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told Bloomberg that Riyadh would be ready to welcome Turkish officials to search the premises.

Turkey reportedly says it is scouring road cameras for a black van believed to have carried Mr Khashoggi's body from the consulate, while the Washington Post released CCTV footage of the journalist entering the building on Monday. "We are extremely anxious", he said.

Khashoggi was a former government adviser who fled Saudi Arabia in September 2017 and lived in the United States fearing arrest back home.

A bipartisan group of US senators on Wednesday said they are forcing an investigation into Khashoggi, triggering a human rights probe that could result in sanctions against Saudi officials and entities. Saudi officials have denied the report and say they don't know the journalist's whereabouts.

Social media users shared images of Jack Dorsey and MBS during the latter's visit to NY in 2016, reminding Jack of the current events revolving around the missing Saudi journalist and MBS' involvement in it.

The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has been documenting the increasingly harsh treatment of journalists in Saudi Arabia. "It's not possible for us to stay silent regarding an incident like this", Erdogan said.

Khashoggi hadn't lived in Saudi Arabia since he moved to the United States previous year.

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

"The request that America made to Saudi Arabia and other OPEC countries is to be sure that if there is any loss of supply from Iran, that we will supply that".

A Turkish official said Saudi Arabia's envoy to Ankara had been summoned to the foreign ministry for a second time on Sunday.

He proposed the Saudi people pave the ground for transferring power to Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, the Saudi King Salman's younger brother who is in exile in Britain, and form a new government based on the constitution.

She said she waited outside for him to come out and then realized something was wrong around 4 p.m. because the consulate closed at 3:30 p.m.
