BEIRUT, LEBANON (4:00 P.M.) – A Saudi Arabian delegation arrived at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Friday as part of an investigation into the disappearance of journalist and dissident Jamal Khashoggi, according to media citing Turkish and Saudi sources.

Cars with diplomatic plates were seen parked near the consulate, with people entering the building.

The two countries agreed to form a joint team to investigate the case.

Khashoggi, from Saudi Arabia, was last seen entering his country’s consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to prepare documents for his forthcoming marriage.

His fiancee claimed she waited outside for him for 11 hours, but he never returned.

Turkish officials suspect the journalist was murdered, while Saudi Arabia has firmly denied the allegations.
