Turkish police search for missing Saudi journalist Khashoggi in Belgrad forest, farmland

Turkish police search for missing Saudi journalist Khashoggi in Belgrad forest, farmland

A Turkish official said Friday that investigators are looking into the possibility that the remains of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi may have been taken to a forest in the outskirts of Istanbul or to another city - if and after he was killed inside the consulate earlier this month.

Trump, who has insisted that more facts must be known before making assumptions about Khashoggi, did not say on what he based his statement on the writer's demise two weeks ago.

But the story does not acknowledge that Trump has promised "severe consequences" if it is found Saudi intelligence agents killed Khashoggi in the embassy, as the government of Turkey has charged.

Turkey's pro-government press has reported that Turkey has an audio recording that proves the alleged murder of Khashoggi at the consulate and that he was tortured before his death.

Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) says the alleged murder and brutal dismemberment of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by his own Saudi government and ongoing war crimes in Yemen should be the final straws in allowing the powerful Gulf monarchy to claim the U.S.as a friend and partner.

"It is out of the question for Turkey to give any kind of audio tape to Pompeo or any other United States official", said Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu, two days after meeting with the U.S. top diplomat for talks in Ankara.

According to Pompeo, the Saudis "strongly denied" having prior knowledge of whatever took place in the consulate and pledged to conduct a "thorough, transparent, and timely investigation". Unnamed Turkish officials say Khashoggi's body might have been disposed of in the forest or on nearby farmland, the BBC says.

But Pompeo also stressed the "long strategic relationship" that the USA has with Saudi Arabia, and described the country as an "important counter-terrorism supporter".

Khashoggi, a Saudi citizen and permanent USA resident, entered the consulate but never came out.

Saudi officials have not responded to repeated requests for comment from the AP in recent days, including Wednesday.

Khashoggi was a prominent Saudi dissident and journalist who wrote for the Washington Post and lived in the United States.

Mr Khashoggi, a 60-year-old Saudi dissident and USA resident, visited the consulate on 2 October to obtain papers needed to get married.

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in a "fight" with individuals inside the Saudi consulate in Turkey, Saudi authorities said after almost two weeks of speculation.

In a note affixed to the top of the column, Post Global Opinions editor Karen Attiah said she received the essay from Khashoggi's translator and assistant a day after he was reported missing. The prince is next in line for the throne held by his aged father King Salman.

A White House statement said the latest Saudi announcements brought confirmation of Mr Khashoggi's fate.
