Timeline of Jamal Khashoggi disappearance

Graphic News

October 10, 2018 -- Saudi journalist and dissident, Jamal Khashoggi, remains missing a week after he disappeared inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. The Saudi government claims that he left the consulate and is not in their custody.

The Washington Post reports that U.S. intelligence intercepts outlined a Saudi plan to detain a prominent journalist and critic who disappeared a week ago.

The Post, citing anonymous U.S. officials familiar with the intelligence, says Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered an operation to lure Jamal Khashoggi from his home in Virginia to Saudi Arabia and then detain him.

Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman Bob Corker says he has reviewed U.S. intelligence reports suggesting that Khashoggi was killed Oct. 2, the day he went to the consulate.

Turkish authorities have said he was killed by an elite Saudi "assassination squad." The Saudi government has dismissed that allegation.
