Khashoggi was murdered, dismembered and taken out of Turkey: Askari

Companies cut ties with Saudi Arabia over Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance

In an interview to be aired Sunday, Trump told CBS' "60 Minutes" that the consequences of Saudi Arabia being involved would be "severe".

The source said that the Kingdom also affirms that if it receives any action, it will respond with greater action.

Mr. Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor, vanished after entering the consulate on October 2 to obtain official documents for his upcoming marriage. Saudi officials call the allegations "baseless", but have offered no evidence Khashoggi ever left the consulate.

Trump's words led to a plunge of Saudi Arabia's stock market, in a possible foreshadowing of what could take place if countries take action against Riyadh in the form of sanctions.

Turkish police and numerous media have claimed he was tortured and killed at the consulate. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.

Separately, sources inside Saudi Arabia said that any punitive measures directed its way would generate larger counter-measures.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevut Cavusoglu said Saudi Arabia had not so far co-operated with the investigation - despite a statement from Saudi Interior Minister Prince Abdulaziz bin Saud bin Naif bin Abdulaziz saying his nation wanted to uncover "the whole truth".

The obituary-style piece follows an opinion piece Ms Cengiz wrote for the Washington Post last week, calling on US President Donald Trump to investigate his disappearance.

But President Trump, who also has Saudi business ties, says he does not want the U.S.to cancel lucrative military contracts with the kingdom. In addition, countries such as Russian Federation and China are ready to supply them with the necessary arms, if U.S. backs off.

In protest of Khashoggi's disappearance, several USA businesses leaders have pulled out of next week's Future Investment Initiative in Riyadh, dubbed "Davos in the Desert", after the annual meeting of world economic interests in Switzerland. American lawmakers have threated sanctions against the Saudis, and Germany, France and Britain jointly called today for a "credible investigation" into Mr Khashoggi's disappearance.

Saudi Arabia ended a 35-year ban on movie theaters with a screening of "Black Panther" in April.

Khashoggi was last seen walking into the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul on October 2. A number of outlets, including Bloomberg, CNN, and CNBC have said that they won't be attending the event, but Mnuchin said, "I am planning on going if more information comes out and changes".
