Turkish authorities will search the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Monday afternoon as part of an investigation into the disappearance of prominent journalist Jamal Khashoggi, broadcaster NTV said, citing diplomatic sources.
Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and critic of Riyadh’s policies, disappeared almost two weeks ago after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Turkey believes he was murdered and his body removed, while Saudi Arabia has denied the allegations. Britain, France and Germany called on the Saudi and Turkish authorities on Sunday to mount a “credible investigation” into the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, saying they were treating the incident with “the utmost seriousness”.
