Trump concedes Khashoggi likely dead, threatens consequences

Demonstrators dressed as Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and US President Donald Trump

President Donald Trump has been under mounting pressure to address the disappearance of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in a more forceful way. The Turkish government claims he was murdered there.

The US resident and critic of the Saudi government was last seen entering the consulate in Istanbul two weeks ago.

United States officials denied that the payment had anything to do with Pompeo's visit or Khashoggi, though a source told The New York Times that the timing of the deposit "was no coincidence".

A Turkish official said Friday that investigators are looking into the possibility that missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's remains may have been taken to a forest outside Istanbul or to another city after his suspected killing at the consulate earlier this month.

Kershaw suffered the loss as he allowed five runs (four earned) on six hits over three innings, striking out two and walking two. Ryu then fell behind in the count 2-0 against Lorenzo Cain and got the first strike on a cutter on the outside edge.

Details of the attack on Khashoggi have started to emerge based on recordings allegedly obtained by Turkish authorities from inside the consulate, including of a Saudi autopsy doctor reportedly telling others to listen to music to ease the tension as they dismembered the body.

Pompeo, who spoke with reporters on the White House driveway after briefing Trump on his talks with leaders in Saudi Arabia and Turkey, said Turkey also promised to share the results of its own investigation with the Saudis.

Officials from a joint Turkish-Saudi team completed an investigation into the case early Thursday after searching the residence as well as the Saudi consulate in Istanbul. "At which point we can make decisions about how or if the United States should respond to the incident surrounding Mr Khashoggi", said the top American diplomat.

USA president Donald Trump acknowledged that it "certainly looks" as though Khashoggi is dead, and he threatened "very severe" consequences if the Saudis are found to have murdered him. We trust that this investigation will provide clarity and answers regarding the disappearance of Mr Khashoggi.

The summit is an initiative of Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman, who is at the centre of the worldwide controversy surrounding Khashoggi, a strident critic of the prince, who was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. "It's very sad", the president said, adding that if Saudi Arabia is to blame, it will face consequences. "He has not heard a tape", his spokeswoman Heather Nauert told ABC News in an email.
