Photo surfaces of doomed reporter walking into Saudi Consulate

Turkey summoned the Saudi ambassador on Sunday to request the kingdom's "full cooperation" in the investigation, a Turkish Foreign Ministry official said. "We believe that the murder was premeditated and the body was subsequently moved out of the consulate", one of the two Turkish officials told Reuters.

"We called a few other places, these are lower officials, but they said: "We have evidence he was killed in a barbaric way, we will announce it tomorrow or the day after".

There was no immediate comment on the report from the Saudi authorities. Officials in Turkey believe he was murdered inside the building, while the Saudis claim he left the building unharmed.

Khashoggi had asked for a document needed to remarry in Turkey, Tamimi said, and the consular staff "were surprised and said, yes, we will do it for you, but there is no time, and they agreed he will come back on Tuesday".

Turkey on Tuesday said 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.

He has not been heard of since.

Saudi officials meant to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia, the Washington Post reported the source as saying, but it was unclear what they meant to do with him - and whether the US ever warned Khashoggi of the threat he faced. "Canadian officials are actively seeking more information", Adam Austen, a spokesman for Canadian Foreign Minister Chrystia Freeland.

"We're not leading by example, and so whenever we make condemnations of other country's anti-press behavior, it may seem like hollow words", Ewen said.

United Nations human rights experts called Tuesday for an investigation into the disappearance of Saudi journalist and government critic Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul.

But Dalay, a non-resident fellow at Brookings Institution, said Turkish officials do not want the case to be seen as "politicised from the start".

Khashoggi had written a series of columns for the Post that were critical of Saudi Arabia's assertive Prince Mohammed, who has led a widely publicized drive to reform the conservative Sunni monarchy but has also presided over the arrests of activists and businessmen. But he also criticised Turkey's crackdown following a 2016 failed coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

The Washington Post released on Tuesday what appears to be the last-known photograph of Khashoggi, walking into the Saudi consulate from which he apparently never left. "But if this deeply disturbing news report is confirmed, the United States & the civilized world must respond strongly, and I will review all options in Senate".

He said Turkish authorities were looking into all camera records and monitoring incoming and outgoing airport transits, but added that Turkey would await the results of the prosecutor's investigation.

What happened? A journalist and prominent critic of the Saudi government has gone missing. "It is (the duty) of the consulate officials", Erdogan said while visiting Hungary. The existence of serious allegations regarding the likely murder - or at the very least imprisonment - of a journalist in one of their key consulates should have the State Department questioning whether the two nations share common values.

Khashoggi previously had close links with the Saudi royal family, including having served as a media aide to Prince Turki al-Faisal, when the latter was director general of the Saudi intelligence agency. Khashoggi himself said government repression had worsened under the crown prince, who'd courted Western minds by lifting a ban on cinemas and allowing women to drive. "I can speak when so many cannot".

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told Bloomberg News last week that Mr Khashoggi had left the building shortly after entering it.
