EUROPE: Jamal Khashoggi: Britain challenges Saudi Arabia

The UK's foreign secretary has told Saudi Arabia that Britain expects urgent answers over the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. In a phone call to Saudi Arabia's foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, Jeremy Hunt warned that "friendships depend on shared values". Mr Khashoggi was last seen visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and Turkey says he may have been murdered there. Saudi Arabia denies the suggestion. Taking a tougher line than the Trump administration, a spokesperson for the UK's Foreign Office said, if media reports surrounding the case were correct, the UK would treat the incident "very seriously." Turkey says it will conduct a search of Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul. Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry said the country was "open to co-operation" and a search of the building could go ahead as part of the investigation. The country has demanded Saudi Arabia prove he left, while not providing evidence to support the claim he was killed inside.
