Khashoggi (59) was last seen entering the Consulate on Tuesday.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor, had gone there on an administrative errand but "did not come back out" of the building, police had told the state-run Anadolu news agency.

The disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has sent a chilling message to dissidents overseas, stoking fears among activists of a broadening crackdown beyond the kingdom's borders.

It has voiced deep concern at the "apparent enforced disappearance". Details of the convoy were disclosed by the pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper. Saudi officials have said that he left shortly afterwards but his fiancée, who was waiting outside, said he never appeared.

He said it comes as no surprise that Riyad is looking to quash criticism, but this case is beyond the sad but true usual jailing of journalists.

Saudi Arabian officials have invited Turkish experts and related officials to visit its consulate in Istanbul.

It was Khashoggi's second visit to finalise his divorce, after being told the previous Friday that his papers were not in order.

Aktay further said, "To insult the man who comes to the consulate and kill him at your home is one of the worst acts and gravest sins".

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.

Lunch: Pakistan off to a great start against Australia on day one
The Test series will be followed by a three-match T20I series (Abu Dhabi, October 24, and Dubai , October 26 and October 28). Australia negotiated the 13 overs and were 30/0 at stumps with Usman Khawaja not out on 17 and Aaron Finch batting on 13.


Erdogan's comments were his most direct suggestion yet about potential Saudi culpability in Khashoggi's disappearance. They acknowledge that a "security delegation" was sent to Istanbul on Saturday but have not offered a reason for the journey. The Post, which first published the photo, said "a person close to the investigation" shared the image with them, without elaborating.

According to Amnesty International, Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor is seeking the death penalty against her and her husband, and three other rights activists. The ministry did not say when the premises would be searched.

Saudi Arabia's Mohammed bin Salman has implemented a string of reforms in his country, but with his ascension to crown prince in June 2017 has come an intensified crackdown on dissent.

The former government adviser, who turns 60 on October 13, has lived in the United States since past year to avoid possible arrest.

I assure you that the reports that suggest that Jamal Khashoggi went missing in the Consulate in Istanbul or that the Kingdom's authorities have detained him or killed him are absolutely false, and baseless. Friends and officials have blamed Riyadh for the dissident journalist's disappearance and alleged murder. "I can not believe that he has been killed.!"

Turkey has an extensive system of motorway cameras that are regularly used to provide evidence in criminal probes. He served as an adviser to senior Saudi officials.

The US president told reporters on Monday: "Hopefully that will sort itself out". President Erdoğan of Turkey has left no stone unturned to expose Saudi Arabia for the "murder most foul" to assert Turkey's supremacy in the region.

The Foreign Office would face charges of hypocrisy if, after its outrage over the attempted assassination by Russian Federation of the former spy Sergei Skripal in Salisbury, it remained silent over an alleged murder by the Saudi government. A former Muslim Brotherhood member who befriended Osama bin Laden but later condemned his violence, Khashoggi became a leading proponent for Arab reform-some of the same reforms, in fact, that MBS has spearheaded as part of his Vision 2030 campaign for the kingdom.

After Canada criticized Saudi arrest of human rights activists, the kingdom retaliated by expelling the Canadian ambassador, recalling its own envoy to Ottawa and freezing trade and investment between the two countries.
