President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he has spoken to Saudi officials about missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, but he said the details of the incident are unclear.
“We have to see what happened,” said Trump. “Nobody knows what happened yet. They don’t know over there, but it’s a very serious situation and it’s something we’re taking very seriously.”
Turkish officials are investigating what happened to Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi government who has been missing since he went to the Saudi consulate to get divorce papers early last week. Turkish police initially said Khashoggi was likely killed in the consulate, an allegation the Saudis denied.
Investigators are now reportedly focusing on a black Mercedes van which arrived at the consulate and left around the time Khashoggi was there. Officials are looking into whether the journalist may have been abducted.
