"We're being very tough and we have investigators over there and we're working with Turkey, and frankly we're working with Saudi Arabia".

Mr Hunt's intervention followed the publication of a CCTV image apparently showing Mr Khashoggi walking into the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, just before he went missing. Saudi authorities have called the allegation "baseless".

The ambassador was first summoned to the foreign ministry on Wednesday.

Turkish officials made the accusation on Sunday.

Back in March, Khashoggi appeared on Al Jazeera's "UpFront" and said there wasn't any room for debate in Saudi Arabia with journalists jailed for questioning its policies.

No evidence has been presented.

Banners read, "We will not leave without Jamal Khashoggi".

U.S. President Donald Trump holds a campaign rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, U.S., October 10, 2018. "If true, this is a tragic day", Pence wrote on Twitter.

When was he last seen?


"See, when I hear about an arrest of my friend who did nothing that worth to be arrested make me feel that I should not go home". "It would be a violation of global law to harm, arrest or detain people at a diplomatic mission, he said, and noted that no such thing had ever happened in Turkey's history".

The Times report, which cited a senior official in the Ankara government, said Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi was murdered on orders from "the highest levels of the royal court" in Riyadh. "The consulate officials can not save themselves by simply saying, 'He has left, '" Erdogan told a news conference in Budapest, where he is on an official visit.

Khashoggi had gone to the consulate in Istanbul for paperwork to marry his Turkish fiancée.

What have the Saudis said?

In March, the State Department approved a $670 million arms sale to Saudi Arabia, part of a promised $110 billion in deals touted by Trump after his first presidential trip to the Saudi capital previous year.

The BBC was criticised on social media for airing the recordings without Mr Khashoggi's consent and before there is any definitive proof of his death.

On the same day, 15 Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and visited the consulate while Khashoggi was also inside, police sources said.

Leman Yurtsever, a protest organiser and board member of the Human Rights Association in Turkey, said on Tuesday that they gathered by the diplomatic mission to defend the rights and safety of journalists. "And that happened", the crown prince told Bloomberg on Friday in a wide-ranging interview.

The official quoted by SPA underlined that Saudi Arabia was responsible for the safety and well-being of all its citizens, wherever they may be, and that its authorities "are diligently following up on this matter to uncover the complete facts".
