S.Arabia arrests 'independent minds': Missing journo

The source said that after entering the embassy Khashoggi was taken in a black Mercedes S-500 and a white minivan with four Saudi officials to Istanbul airport, where he was flown on a private jet to Dubai and then Riyadh, where he is now being held.

The two Turkish sources told Reuters that Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi was deliberately killed inside the consulate, a view echoed by one of Erdogan's advisers, Yasin Aktay, who is a friend of the Saudi journalist. Donald Trump commented on the disappearance in his press conference yesterday, saying "I do nor like it" and expressing hope that the issue will "sort itself out".

President Donald Trump, who took his first overseas trip as USA president to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said he had concerns.

Instead of pursuing these angles, the mainstream USA media is focussing on the minute details of Khashoggi's disappearance inside a Saudi consulate in Turkey, and giving too much space to unbelievable Saudi denials. I don't like hearing about it.

A report Monday in the daily newspaper Sabah said investigators were also focused on a convoy of diplomatic vehicles that departed from the consulate on the day Khashoggi vanished.

Protesters gathered outside the Saudi consulate Monday demanding to know what had happened to Khashoggi. Turkey, it said, must back up its conclusion Khashoggi was killed by making public any evidence it has.

David Rohde, executive editor of The New Yorker tweeted out, "The journalist Jamal Khashoggi had said that the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, has 'no tolerance or willingness to accommodate critics'".

Khashoggi has been an outspoken critic of the Saudi government, causing him to leave his home country previous year to live in exile in the United States.

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.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo called on Saudi Arabia to "support a thorough investigation" of his disappearance and "to be transparent about the results". The consulate insists the writer left its premises, contradicting Turkish officials. "I know what everybody else knows - nothing", Trump said.

Saudis are, perhaps, trying to flawless their excellence in furtherance of their plans and the world must expect more covert operations by Saudi Arabia in a not-so-distant future with Iran as its primary target. "We are not in a position to confirm these reports, but we are following them closely", the official said.

A former newspaper editor in Saudi Arabia and adviser to its former head of intelligence, Khashoggi left the country a year ago saying he feared retribution for his criticism of Saudi policy in the Yemen war and its crackdown on dissent.

It has voiced deep concern at the "apparent enforced disappearance".

On Friday, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said Turkey could search the consulate for the missing dissident.

Turkish authorities are to search the Saudi consulate in Istanbul as part of an investigation into the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi. He had been living since previous year in the U.S.in a self-imposed exile, in part due to the rise of Prince Mohammed, the son of King Salman.

Calls for clarity from the worldwide community mounted on Monday, with Britain and France seeking explanations from Riyadh.
