A Turkish forensics team finished a search for evidence in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 16 over the disappearance and alleged slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi, as reports circulated that the kingdom may concede the killing took place there.

Technicians in coveralls, gloves and covered shoes treated the consulate, where Khashoggi vanished two weeks ago, as a crime scene during their hourslong search. It wasn’t immediately clear what evidence they gathered.

President Donald Trump, after speaking with Saudi King Salman, dispatched Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to speak to the monarch of the world’s top oil exporter over Khashoggi’s disappearance.

Trump said, without offering evidence, that the slaying could have been carried out by “rogue killers,” offering the U.S.-allied kingdom a possible path out of a global diplomatic firestorm.

Khashoggi wrote critically about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for The Washington Post in articles that reportedly incensed the de facto Saudi leader. (AP)
