Police find evidence of Saudi writer's murder

Turkish officials told the Associated Press that police found evidence in the Saudi Consulate that Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi was killed there.

The finding comes two weeks after the disappearance of Khashoggi, who went into a self-imposed exile in the United States amid with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's rise.

Turkish officials had feared Saudi officials killed and dismembered the writer at the consulate in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia previously called the allegation "baseless," but reports suggest they may acknowledge Khashoggi was killed there.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met with Prince Mohammed over the disappearance and alleged slaying of Khashoggi.

During the meeting on Tuesday, Prince Mohammed said: "We are strong and old allies. We face our challenges together -- the past, the day of, tomorrow." Pompeo thanked Prince Mohammed for hosting him.
