  • WWE are being urged to cancel one of their biggest shows of the year due to the disappearance of a journalist

A team of Turkish police investigating the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has spent more than nine hours in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, as reports circulated that the kingdom may concede the killing took place there. CNN first reported that the Saudis were planning to admit Khashoggi died in the consulate.

While the search was being carried out, CNN and the New York Times reported that Saudi Arabia was preparing to acknowledge Khashoggi's death in a botched interrogation. The U.S. news network cited two unnamed sources. He said the USA was working with Saudi Arabia and Turkey to figure out what happened.

"The king has ordered the public prosecutor to open an internal investigation into the Khashoggi matter based on the information from the joint team in Istanbul", an official quoted by Reuters news agency said.

US President Donald Trump and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo arrived in Riyadh on Tuesday to discuss the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi with the king and crown prince, after President Donald Trump speculated "rogue killers" may be responsible.

Mr Trump has said Saudi Arabia could face "severe punishment" if it was proven it was involved in Khashoggi's disappearance. The event is meant to showcase Prince Mohammed bin Salman's modernisation plan for the desert kingdom.

They said: 'Defending freedom of expression and a free press and ensuring the protection of journalists are key priorities for Germany, the United Kingdom and France. The Saudis have insisted that Khashoggi, who would have been 60 on Saturday, left the building...

The bank has been one of the leading managers of Saudi Arabia's large bond sales in recent years, including a sale this year that raised $11 billion for the kingdom.

Turkish officials said that a Saudi hit squad killed Mr. Khashoggi and dismembered his body to smuggle it out of the country.

Cleaning personnel enter Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on Monday.

A joint Saudi-Turkish team arrived at the consulate on Monday in Istanbul's upscale 4th Levent neighbourhood, as journalists filmed and shot photographs of their arrival.

Saudi Arabia has said it would retaliate against any pressure or economic sanctions "with greater action", and Arab allies rallied to support it.

JPMorgan Chase & Co Chief Executive Jamie Dimon became the most high-profile banker to withdraw from the event on Sunday night.

Turkish officials have reportedly shared with Washington contents of video and audio recordings that allegedly contain evidence supporting claims that Khashoggi was murdered by the Saudi government.

Prince Mohammed has aggressively pitched the kingdom as a destination for foreign investment.

Trump's warning drew an angry response Sunday from Saudi Arabia and its state-linked media, including a suggestion that Riyadh could wield its oil production as a weapon.

Hariri hailed Saudi Arabia as one of the "central countries entrusted with the stability of the region", and said anti-Saudi campaigns were being used to destabilize the region.
