Trump hardens line on Saudi Arabia as evidence mounts over Khashoggi’s disappearance

(CNN)The US moved closer to acknowledging the role of Saudi Arabia in journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s apparent death as new details emerged linking his disappearance to people close to the kingdom’s crown prince.

On Thursday President Donald Trump said for the first time that he believes Khashoggi is no longer alive, more than two weeks after the Washington Post columnist entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, never to be seen again.
“It certainly looks that way to me, it’s very sad,” the president said when asked if Khashoggi is dead.
