Turkey has summoned the Saudi ambassador to request the kingdom's "full co-operation" in an investigation into the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who Turkish officials say was killed while visiting the Saudi Arabian Consulate in Istanbul. The CCTV image, obtained by the Washington Post, was reportedly leaked by somebody "close to the investigation".
Jamal Khashoggi went there to get paperwork so he could marry his Turkish fiancée, and he hasn't been seen or heard from since October 2.
Authorities in Istanbul believe he was murdered within the consulate walls, but the Saudi government maintains he left.
Reports of Jamal Khashoggi being detained and killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul are "absolutely false and baseless", said Khalid bin Salman, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States said in a statement. As a columnist for the Washington Post, Khashoggi has criticized Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for his policies. "We are aware of the latest reports and are working urgently to establish the facts, including with the government of Saudi Arabia".
"I am following the (issue) and we will inform the world whatever the outcome" of the official probe, the president told reporters in Ankara.
"This serious transformation that is happening isn't discussed - the Prince supplies us every couple of weeks or couple of months with a huge multi-billion dollar project that wasn't discussed in the parliament, wasn't discussed in the newspapers and the people will just clap and say great. and things don't work that way". "We hear the rumors about what happened", Saudi Crown Prince and de facto ruler Mohammed Bin Salman, known in the West as MBS, told Bloomberg News in an extensive interview.
The Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) has been documenting the increasingly harsh treatment of journalists in Saudi Arabia.

Trump welcomes Kavanaugh's appointment to supreme court
The US Senate has voted to confirm President Donald Trump's nominee for the Supreme Court , after weeks of rancorous debate. Trump watched the confirmation vote on a large-screen television tuned to Fox News in a wood-paneled cabin on the plane.
Both planes later returned to Riyadh with one stopping in Dubai and the other in Egypt, Sabah reported, adding the police were looking into the possibility that Khashoggi was kidnapped.
Investigators said a 15-person team arrived at the consulate on Tuesday, returning to Riyadh the same day.
But since the emergence of Prince Mohammed, 33, as the center of power in the kingdom past year, Khashoggi has been openly critical of the monarchy. She accused Saudi Arabia of "state terrorism" and called on the worldwide community to take action against the kingdom.
He said it comes as no surprise that Riyad is looking to quash criticism, but this case is beyond the sad but true usual jailing of journalists.
Erdogan, who said he was personally following the case, added that Turkey had no documents or evidence at hand regarding the case. And hopefully that will sort itself out.
The Khashoggi case puts the Trump administration unexpectedly on the side of Turkey, where two top government officials have been slapped with U.S. sanctions over the detention of an American pastor.
He moved to the United States more than a year ago, where he continued his commentary about his country both in print and on television. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said he had seen conflicting reports on the safety and whereabouts of Khashoggi. "I said nothing. I didn't want to lose my job or my freedom".
Khashoggi was one journalist who chose to "report the reality".
