President Trump acknowledged yesterday that USA -based journalist Jamal Khashoggi is likely dead and threatened "very severe" consequences if Saudi Arabia is found to be responsible.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he spoke with President Donald Trump on October 18 and told him that the United States should give Saudi Arabia more time to finalize their official investigation into the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

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".

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

Khashoggi worked as an opinion columnist at The Washington Post newspaper, and has written critically of the Saudi government and its crown prince, Mohammad Bin Salman.

"Fox Business Network has canceled its sponsorship and participation in the Future Investment Initiative conference in Saudi Arabia. It's bad, bad stuff".

U.S. 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".

Earlier, they spent almost nine hours in the Saudi consul's residence along with Saudi investigators.

"Of course, as a result of the investigation so far, Turkey does have some information and evidence", he said. Video footage collected by police from around the Saudi Consulate has shown that of the 26 vehicles that exited the compound on October 2, the day Khashoggi went missing, most came back, apart from the two that were carrying the members of the 15-strong assassination squad.

There is a perception here among critics of the Trump administration that USA officials are working with the Saudis to give them time to come up with a "cover story".
