Jamal Khashoggi: Saudi Arabia rejects Trump's 'threats' over missing journalist

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

Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and Washington Post columnist critical of Saudi Arabia, disappeared on October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

One Turkish official told the New York Times that Khashoggi had been killed by a team of Saudi agents within hours of arriving at the Saudi consulate and an autopsy expert helped dismember his body.

Khashoggi, a critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the Saudi royal family, was last seen on October 2 when he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to get documents for his forthcoming marriage.

This statement came after the Saudi stock market plunged by almost 7 percent at one point on Sunday. CNN recently reported that Turkish officials say they have audio and video that proves Khashoggi was murdered. "It felt very insensitive and it's something that we shouldn't really be getting involved with, so we thought we're going to stay away from that".

The president has said the USA will inflict "severe punishment" if Saudi Arabia is found to be responsible for the death of Mr Khashoggi. "We're being very tough and we have investigators over there and we're working with Turkey and Saudi Arabia".

Khashoggi, a contributor to the Washington Post, has not been seen since he walked of the Saudi consulate on Oct 2.

Khashoggi, a US resident and critic of the Saudi government, went missing more than a week ago after entering a Saudi consulate in Istanbul. Bernie Sanders said Sunday that if journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed by Saudis, the USA should distance itself from the Middle Eastern kingdom and cut ties to the war in Yemen.

"There needs to be a credible investigation to establish the truth about what happened, and - if relevant - to identify those bearing responsibility for the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and ensure that they are held to account", the foreign ministers from the three countries said in a joint statement. "Think of that, $110 billion".
