Saudi Arabia denies allegations regarding murder of Khashoggi: interior minister

Companies cut ties with Saudi Arabia over Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance Mnuchin Still Plans To Attend Saudi Conference Boycotted By Major Companies

Now, President Trump is threatening "severe punishment" for Saudi Arabia if suspicions of Khashoggi's murder are confirmed - and Saudis have vowed to retaliate in kind.

He said Riyadh would "respond to any action with a bigger one", pointing out that the oil superpower "plays an effective and vital role in the world economy".

Khashoggi, who has written for the Washington Post and is a prominent critic of Riyadh, has been missing since October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Turkey's top diplomat has reiterated a call to Saudi Arabia to allow Turkish authorities to enter the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul for an investigation on missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

US President Donald Trump called Khashoggi's suspected killing "a bad thing", but stopped short of assigning blame.

The WWE "Crown Jewel" event in Saudi Arabia scheduled next month has come under fire in light of recent headlines regarding Saudi Arabia's leaders being accused of being behind the disappearance and feared murder of a USA based journalist critical of Saudi Arabia.

He, however, said that he is against cancelling the $110 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia because of this.

And Trudeau says Canada has been engaged in a significant diplomatic effort on human rights with Saudi Arabia for many years, including in his own conversation last spring with King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.

British entrepreneur Richard Branson said he would suspend two directorships linked to tourism projects in Saudi Arabia over the issue. It is unclear what those punishments could be, but Trump said he did not want to harm USA jobs by halting arms trade. He says if the kingdom doesn't buy its weaponry from the United States, they will buy it from Russian Federation.


Khashoggi was living in self-imposed exile in the United States and had criticized Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in columns written for The Washington Post.

Hatice Cengiz is a doctoral student in Istanbul, the same city where Khashoggi was last seen entering the Saudi consulate to get needed paperwork so the pair could Wednesday.

Turkish media say sources have identified a 15-strong team involved in Mr Khashoggi's disappearance.

The US has been under increasing pressure to demand answers from Saudi Arabia, a long-time US ally in the Middle East, as to Khashoggi's disappearance.

Separately, several global businesses have withdrawn from the upcoming Future Investment Initiative conference in Riyadh.

Since last Tuesday, there have been zero specific references to Saudi Arabia on either WWE's Twitter or Instagram accounts, with the name of the show only dropped in passing.

"I do think that arms sales will be effected", the senator said, referring to US weapons sales to Saudi Arabia.

Cengiz also didn't just call for an investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance, she urged for the responsible party, "irrespective of their political positions", to be punished.
