17 October, 2018, 17:12
US President Donald Trump, who dispatched his top diplomat to address the crisis, has given Saudi Arabia the benefit of the doubt in Khashoggi'sdisappearance, even as US lawmakers pointed the finger at the Saudi leadership, and Western pressure mounted on Riyadh to provide answers.
Khashoggi has not been seen since he stepped inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to sort out paperwork for his upcoming marriage to a Turkish woman.
He was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul where he went to receive papers he needed to remarry.
Trump then said that the Saudi government's denial "could not have been stronger".
Mr Trump's remarks are his most robust defence yet of the Saudis, a U.S. ally he has made central to his Middle East agenda.
How is it going for Saudi Arabia now?

Meanwhile, Turkish investigators quoted by two news agencies say Monday's search of the consulate has yielded more evidence that Mr Khashoggi was killed there.
"It has been 13 days since the event, so surely proving some of the evidence might be difficult" the Turkish official said.
Leaked surveillance video shows that diplomatic cars travelled to the consul general's home shortly after Khashoggi went into the consulate. Samples, including soil from the garden and a metal gate, were reportedly taken.
