Jamal Khashoggi disappearance: Last column published


The Washington Post has published missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's last column - a call for press freedom across the Arab world.

The newspaper said it decided to go ahead after accepting Mr Khashoggi was not going to return safely.

The journalist has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October, where Turkish officials allege he was killed.

Saudi Arabia, which denies the killing, allowed investigators inside overnight.

Turkish crime scene teams were seen leaving the consulate early on Thursday morning.

Sources close to the investigation have said they have audio evidence of Mr Khashoggi's torture and eventual murder at the consulate.

However, these have not been made public.

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump said the US has asked for the recording "if it exists".

Meanwhile, politicians from around the world have said they will not be attending an investment conference in Saudi Arabia next week. However, a number of major businesses - including Goldman Sachs, Pepsi and EDF - were still intending to go despite growing pressure for a boycott.
