Saudi officials deny any involvement in his disappearance.

Turkish police believe Mr Khashoggi's killers may have dumped his remains in Belgrad Forest, next to Istanbul, and near the rural city of Yalova, 90 kilometres (55 miles) away from the Turkish capital, senior officials have said.

There is a perception here among critics of the Trump administration that U.S. officials are working with the Saudis to give them time to come up with a "cover story".

"Unless the miracle of all miracles happens, I would acknowledge that he's dead".

Kushner's close relationship with Saudi crown prince has been the subject of media scrutiny in recent days and has been linked to his reported unwillingness to make waves with MBS.

A Turkish forensic officer arrives at the Saudi consulate to conduct a new search over the disappearance and alleged slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, in Istanbul, early Thursday, Oct. 18, 2018.

It comes amid allegations the country was behind the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

On Wednesday and Thursday, Turkish investigators spent nearly nine hours searching the Saudi consul's residence, before moving on to the consulate itself about 200m away, according to Reuters news agency.

Turkish authorities say they have evidence he tortured, killed and dismembered at the consulate on orders of the Saudi government.

30 million user accounts hacked, says Facebook
Colin Bastable, CEO of Lucy Security which focuses on cybersecurity prevention and awareness, painted an especially grim scenario. In September, Facebook had said that hackers had stolen digital log-in codes to take over almost 50 million user accounts.

The statement said Saudi Arabia faced "crises and problems" because of "injustice and unfair policies that MBS is responsible for", using an acronym for the crown prince.

The Saudi dissident and The Washington Post columnist went missing, following what was supposed to be a routine stop at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

Trump stopped short of accusing the Saudis of killing Khashoggi, but he said there would be "very severe" consequences if it turns out they did.

The Saudi consul general reportedly is heard on tape saying, "Do this outside; you're going to get me in trouble".

"Canada has said this with a very strong voice".

In Istanbul, Turkish investigators for a second time searched the Saudi consulate, where Khashoggi vanished, in a hunt for clues.

But while withholding judgment on the case, Trump and Pompeo in recent days have stressed the depth of US-Saudi cooperation in financial and counterterrorism matters stretching back for nearly a century. "They spend $40 million, $50 million", he said at a rally in Mobile, Alabama, in August 2015.

Mr Trump's comments, however, signalled an urgency in completing the probe into the disappearance of the journalist, last seen entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Hours after his meeting with Pompeo, Trump told the New York Times in an interview that Khashoggi was assassinated, as per multiple intelligence sources.
