For senators, missing journalist casts 'cloud' over U.S.-Saudi relations

Pressure appeared to be building worldwide on close US ally Saudi Arabia on the whereabouts of Khashoggi, a prominent critic of Saudi policies, who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get documents for his planned marriage.

Turkish media have identified more than a dozen suspects authorities believe killed a missing Saudi journalist inside Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul a week ago. As of writing, they have not commented on the 15 nationals. It said they checked into two hotels in Istanbul on October 2 and left later that day.

What it doesn't show is the Saudi journalist ever leaving the building. Both the Times and the Post are reporting that a group of 15 men, including an "autopsy expert, presumably there to help dismember the body", arrived from Riyadh on the morning Khashoggi disappeared and left Istanbul later that afternoon.

According to the images, a vehicle that went inside the consulate then went to the consul-general's residence nearby after 1200 GMT, two hours after Khashoggi had entered the mission.

Turkish police were also looking into the possibility that Khashoggi was kidnapped, local media reported.
