Adjust Comment Print

President Trump says he believes missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead, telling The New York Times that his judgement is based on intelligence reports "coming from every side".

Mr Trump has previously vowed to inflict "severe punishment" on Saudi Arabia if it was behind Mr Khashoggi's killing - but also said he is against cancelling military contracts with Riyadh.

"We have certain information and evidence [regarding Khashoggi's disappearance]" and will publicize all materials to the world after the investigation is concluded, Cavusoglu told reporters.

A United Kingdom government spokesman said: "The Secretary of State for International Trade has decided the time is not right for him to attend the Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh on 23 October".

Khashoggi's killers may have dumped his remains in Belgrad Forest adjacent to Istanbul, and at a rural location near the city of Yalova, a 90km drive south of Istanbul, the officials said.

Published reports are now connecting the Saudi royal family to the suspects in the disappearance of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

France doesn't, however, appear to be making any changes to its arms deals with Saudi Arabia. "I mean it's bad, bad stuff, but we'll see what happens".

"We made clear to them that we take this matter with respect to Mr Khashoggi very seriously", Mr Pompeo told reporters at the White House after meeting with Trump.

This is the first time that the United States has officially acknowledged about Khashoggi's death, who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Mr. Trump said he would wait for the results of three different investigations before drawing conclusions. Khashoggi's disappearance sparked an worldwide outcry, as allegations mounted that the Saudi government was behind it. "If they knew about it, that would be bad", he said during an interview on Tuesday.
