Sanders on Khashoggi: US should leave Saudi-led war in Yemen

"We call on the government of Saudi Arabia to support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation", Pompeo said in a statement.

It is said that the head of the forensic unit in the Saudi defence forces, a former head of intelligence at the Saudi Arabian embassy in London and several special forces officers were among the group, which flew into Istanbul on October 2, the day when Khashoggi disappeared.

On Tuesday, the New York Times cited top Turkish security officials who insisted that Khashoggi had been killed, dismembered with a bone saw, and then carted out of the building.

A joint statement of condemnation, if it is confirmed that Khashoggi was killed by Saudi agents, was also being discussed by USA and European diplomats, the BBC said. I don't want to lose an order like that.

"If the story that was told about the murder is true, the Turks must have information and videotape and other documents to back it up", Fred Hiatt, the Post's editorial page editor, said.

President Donald Trump has vowed to "get to the bottom" of the case of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Mr Trump also says he has reached out to Mr Khashoggi's fiance, Hatice Cengiz, and invited her to the Oval Office.

"There needs to be a credible investigation to establish the truth about what happened, and - if relevant - to identify those bearing responsibility for the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and ensure that they are held to account". "If this happened, if they murdered this journalist who works for The Washington Post in a consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, that's a game-changer for me".

The crown prince ordered an operation to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia from the United States and then detain him, the Washington Post reported on Wednesday, citing us intelligence intercepts of Saudi officials discussing the plan.

'At this time, I implore President Trump and first lady Melania Trump to help shed light on Jamal's disappearance, ' she wrote.

'We're demanding everything, ' Trump said, asked if his team was seeking information from the Saudis - longtime allies who the Trump administration has hugged closely.

Jamal Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, was last seen entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2, and fears have grown that he has been killed. There was already mounting concern over civilian deaths caused by a Saudi-led military coalition in Yemen's civil war and some lawmakers have said Washington should block military sales to Riyadh if the allegations over Khashoggi are proven. "We will continue to monitor this situation and provide updates as available", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

The source stated that "a security delegation composed of Saudi investigators arrived on Saturday to Istanbul at the request of the Saudi side and the consent of the Turkish side to participate in the investigations of the disappearance of the Saudi citizen".

The Washington Post reported on Tuesday that before Khashoggi disappeared, US intelligence had intercepted communications in which the Saudis had been discussing a plot to abduct him.

Khashoggi, who was considered close to the Saudi royal family, had become a critic of the current government and Prince Mohammed, the 33-year-old heir apparent who has shown little tolerance for criticism.
