Supporters of missing Saudi journalist rally for his 'release'

Khashoggi, a 59-year-old veteran journalist who has lived in self-imposed exile in the USA since Prince Mohammed's rise to power, disappeared October 2 while on a visit to the consulate to get paperwork done to be married to his Turkish fiancée.

But on Wednesday, as Khashoggi's lengthening absence raised fears that he is being held incommunicado, Turkey's Foreign Ministry summoned the Saudi ambassador to discuss the whereabouts of the journalist, who is well-known for criticizing the Saudi leadership.

Human Rights Watch urged Turkish authorities to take steps to prevent Saudi agents from forcibly returning Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia, where the group says an unfair trial may await him. According to the Saudi armament strategy for the next 10 years, which was adopted after Trump became president, more than 60 percent of its arms are to be supplied by or manufactured in partnership with the United States."We've created $400 billion in opportunities, armaments and investment opportunities, and other trade opportunities".

"Mr. Khashoggi visited the consulate to request paperwork related to his marital status and exited shortly thereafter", the official said.

"The consulate confirmed that it is carrying out follow-up procedures and coordination with the Turkish local authorities to uncover the circumstances of the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi after he left the consulate building", the statement said, without elaborating.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman said his country will privatise more than 20 companies in 2019, helping the government's strategy to diversify revenues away from oil. Despite the harsh words, the Trump administration has had a close relationship with Saudi Arabia, which it views as a bulwark against Iran's ambitions in the region.

According to reports in the United Kingdom media, Terry may now pick up a managerial role at Aston Villa. Terry, who earned 78 England caps, left Chelsea in 2017 after 19 seasons at the London club.

"If he's in Saudi Arabia, I would know that", he added.

Khashoggi's disappearance is not, in and of itself, surprising. This is a red line not only for Saudi Arabia but for the whole world.

"Saudi Arabia was there before the United States of America".

Khashoggi was last seen entering the consulate on Tuesday and mysteriously disappeared, though consulate officials claim he disappeared after exiting the building. Protesters have been demanding reforms, freedom of expression, release of political prisoners, and an end to economic and religious discrimination against the oil-rich region.

Once a friend to the royal family, Khashoggi became one of its most vocal critics. He also, on several occasions, interviewed Osama bin Laden.

Last week Trump asked at a rally "when you have wealthy countries like Saudi Arabia, like Japan, like South Korea, why are we subsidizing their military?"
