Severe punishment! United States warns Saudi Arabia over mysterious death of journalist

Turkish officials have said they believe Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate and lurid claims have been leaked to media that he was tortured and even dismembered.

Major US defense contractors have expressed concern to the Trump administration that lawmakers angered by Khashoggi's disappearance will block further arms deals with Riyadh.

British tycoon Richard Branson said he was pulling back from two tourism projects in Saudi Arabia and suspended discussions with Riyadh about a $1 billion investment in Virgin's space companies. Such a move, he asserted, would have an impact on jobs in the US.

In response to her article, Mr Hunt tweeted: "From the party whose leader wouldn't even condemn Russian Federation by name after the first ever chemical weapons attack on British soil... we have been robust and will continue to be on this very troubling issue".

Cengiz said Khashoggi was not nervous when he entered the consulate to obtain paperwork required for their marriage. As of this moment. And we would be very upset and angry if that were the case. Turkey is looking into it at a very high level - at the highest level.

"If they don't buy it from us, they're going to buy it from Russian Federation or they're going to buy it from China", he said.

US President Donald Trump called Khashoggi's suspected killing "a awful thing", but stopped short of assigning blame.

"We haven't seen any collaboration on this issue", he said.

"We're being very tough and we have investigators over there and we're working with Turkey and Saudi Arabia".
