International pressure mounts on Saudi over journalist disappearance

(CNN)The UK, Germany and France have demanded a credible investigation into the fate of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi as international pressure mounts on Riyadh to explain his disappearance.

Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post and Saudi royal insider-turned-critic, went missing after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain paperwork that would allow him to marry his Turkish fiancée.
His disappearance has drawn international condemnation and prompted Washington and Riyadh to trade threats, with US President Donald Trump warning of serious retribution if the Saudis are found to be behind his possible death.
