Jamal Khashoggi disappearance: United Nations chief demands 'truth'

As we previously reported, WWE is receiving criticism for their deal with Saudi Arabia and the upcoming Crown Jewel show, particularly after the disappearance of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi, who is rumored to have been murdered in a plot from Saudi officials. It echoes how Russian Federation has described the men who allegedly carried out the Novichok nerve agent poisonings in Salisbury, England, in March.

Saudi Arabia's sovereign wealth fund invested $3.5 billion in Uber two years ago.

"Saudi Arabia needs to cooperate for the [Turkish] prosecution personnel and experts to enter the consulate premises for the soundness of this investigation and everything to come into light".

Justin Trudeau says Canada has been and continues to be clear and strong with the kingdom of Saudi Arabia about defending human rights.

In an interview for CBS's 60 Minutes, he said the Saudis had denied involvement in the disappearance of Mr Khashoggi on October 2 "in every way possible", but added: "Could it be them? Yes".

Mr Trump has forged closer ties with Saudi Arabia and is under worldwide and domestic pressure to help determine what happened to Khashoggi and punish Saudi Arabia if investigations show its Government had him killed.

The disappearance has put pressure on President Donald Trump, who has enjoyed close relations with the Saudis since entering office.

Speaking to reporters on Saturday during a visit to London, Mevlut Cavusoglu said there is a consensus on forming a joint working group with Saudi officials over the case of Khashoggi.

Turkish government officials believe the Washington Post columnist was targeted by a Saudi "hit squad" and his body dismembered, smuggled out of the consulate in black bags inside a Transit van and flown out of Turkey in a private jet.

However, the presumed killing of the Washington Post journalist could prove to be a tipping point in the way Congress deals with Saudi Arabia, even if the President does not want to play hardball. "We heard about Khashoggi going missing the day before we were supposed to leave, two days before, but the next day was when we had to go and it just didn't feel like a smart move".

Opposition Leader Bill Shorten said he couldn't believe the prime minister hadn't immediately ruled out the "silly" proposal. "The fact is every children is entitled to human dignity".

"It's being investigated. It's being looked at very, very strongly".

He had been living in a self-imposed exile in Washington D.C. for over a year when he went to the Saudi consulate on October 2 to obtain a document that would allow him to marry Cengiz.

Concerns about Khashoggi had a host of media outlets also backing off the conference.

"He said, 'See you later my darling, ' and went in", she told the AP.

Footage released shows Khashoggi entering the consulate building.

Saudi intelligence noticed the watch on Khashoggi's wrist "and tried to erase some files", the paper said.

Saudi and Turkish officials have not yet commented on the Sabah report.

She said investigators were examining his cellphones, which he had left with her.

A bipartisan group of Senators wrote a letter to Trump last week seeking an investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance that could trigger sanctions.

Those policies are all seen as initiatives of the crown prince, who has also presided over a roundup of activists and businessmen.
