Turkish newspaper names 15 Saudis in missing journalist case

Airport security officials now say they checked all bags that the Saudi teams took with them from the consulate to the airport and say there were no suspicious items in any of the items loaded on to the jets for their return journeys to Riyadh.

The Sabah newspaper, which is close to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, revealed the identities of what it called a "mysterious" 15-member "assassination squad" it said was involved in Khashoggi's alleged death.

The fiancée of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has asked President Donald Trump to help uncover what happened to the Riyadh critic who she said had "been fighting for his principles".

Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tennessee) reportedly spoke to a Saudi ambassador about viewing security video that would show whether or not Khashoggi left the consulate.

The Saudi government maintains that they had nothing to do with Khashoggi's disappearance, and that the journalist left the consulate soon after he got there.

Turkish police were looking into two private aircraft that landed at Istanbul's Ataturk airport on October 2 at different times carrying the individuals of interest in the case. The footage shows Khashoggi entering the consulate on October 2.

Turkey said Tuesday it will search the consulate as it investigates why journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a contributor to the Washington Post, vanished there October 2, an extraordinary probe of a diplomatic post amid Turkish officials' fears the writer had been killed inside the building.

Other analysts said the court's reputation could suffer as it becomes perceived as a political, rather than a legal, institution. However, the Republican cautioned that "it remains to be seen whether this lasts for the next three weeks or not".

Saudi Arabia has dismissed as baseless accusations that it killed or abducted Khashoggi. The video also shows alleged Saudi planes and agents, whom Turkish officials want to investigate in relation to the dissident journalist's disappearance. Both hotels declined to comment on the report.

The journalist's fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, wrote an op-ed on Tuesday expressing hope her man is still alive.

The official also said the journalist may have been killed on the orders of the highest levels of the Saudi royal court.

The U.S. government has remained relatively quiet on the disappearance, but Secretary of State Mike Pompeo urged Saudi leaders to "support a thorough investigation of Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance and to be transparent about the results of that investigation".

One of the men identified by name and photo in the Sabah report is a Saudi forensic expert, according to Saudi media reports, and is on the board of the Saudi Society of Forensic Medicine. Aksam daily said some of the men went into the Saudi consulate before Khashoggi. The video ends with shots of two private jets, saying that six men left at 5:40 p.m. and seven left at 9 p.m. Saudi officials haven't acknowledged that.

Trump, who took his first overseas trip as US President to the kingdom and whose son-in-law Jared Kushner has close ties to Prince Mohammed, said Tuesday he had not yet talked to the Saudis about Khashoggi, "but I will be at some point", without elaborating. Turkey said Tuesday it will search the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul as part of an investigation into the disappearance of a missing Saudi contributor to The Washington Post, a week after he vanished during a visit there.
