What does new video in Saudi writer's disappearance show?

The presidents of Iran Russia and Turkey meet in Tehran for a summit set to decide the future of Idlib province amid fears of a humanitarian

U.S. intelligence services intercepted communications of Saudi officials discussing a plan to capture Saudi journalist and government critic Jamal Khashoggi, who disappeared in Turkey last week.

The report also said that the Saudis stayed at the Wyndham and Movenpick hotels in Istanbul, in the same neighbourhood as the Saudi consulate.

"(Mohammed) bin Salman's remarks and such bragging can only satisfy (US President Donald) Trump.

The Saudi government maintains that they had nothing to do with Khashoggi's disappearance, and that the journalist left the consulate soon after he got there.

Yesterday, the Post published a column by Mr Khashoggi's fiancee, Hatice Cengiz. It's a very bad situation. "We can not let this happen, to reporters, to anyone". It was not clear, the report said, whether the Saudis meant to arrest and interrogate Mr. Khashoggi or to kill him, or if the US officials warned Mr. Khashoggi that he was a target.

A screenshot of Khashoggi entering the consulate taken by a Turkish police camera, at 1:14 pm on October 2 is the last known image seen of the writer who was living in exile between Washington DC and Istanbul.

The planes belonged to a company based in Saudi Arabia which has links to the state.

Turkish authorities say Mr Khashoggi was killed.

Khashoggi, a former Saudi government adviser, had been living in the United States since previous year fearing arrest. So far, I'm told, the Saudis haven't been co-operating - hence Ankara releasing the names of the Saudi alleged hit squad on Wednesday.

It's unclear what the US knows about Khashoggi's disappearance, but Trump did cast some doubt on the rumors that Khashoggi was murdered.

Also on Tuesday, it projected that inflation in Nigeria would increase to 13.5 per cent next year. The fund expected inflation at 10.8 percent in 2018.

"We need to look at an escalating list of actions that we can take in response to what the Saudis have done, assuming that that's proved to be true", Shaheen said. "I'm not happy about this".

"I also urge Saudi Arabia, especially King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, to show the same level of sensitivity and release CCTV footage from the consulate", Cengiz wrote.

"It's quite frankly shocking that someone can go into consulate or a diplomatic mission and disappear", Vincent told MEE.

The Saudis were discussing a plan to lure Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, back to the kingdom, the newspaper claims, citing a person familiar with the communications, which were intercepted before he vanished.

Although the U.S.'s relationship with Saudi Arabia became tense during Barack Obama's presidency, Trump has enjoyed a much friendlier relationship with the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, a.k.a. MBS.

"Secretary of State Mike Pompeo then had a follow-up call with the crown prince to reiterate the United States request for information", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.

Meanwhile, the New York Times reported more harrowing details, based on a source who explained that the planned murder was "a quick and complex operation in which Mr. Khashoggi was killed within two hours of his arrival at the consulate by a team of Saudi agents, who dismembered his body with a bone saw they brought for the goal".

"He shared with me that they only livestream their tapes", Corker said, according to CNN correspondent Manu Raju. Lindsay Graham, the South Carolina Republican who is close to Trump.

When I asked him why he made a decision to live in the United States, he said America was the world's most powerful country, where one could feel the political pulse of the planet.

Rebecca Vincent, the director of RSF's London office, said Saudi Arabia urgently needs to answer questions about his disappearance.
