ISTANBUL (Reuters) - The fiancée of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Wednesday denied a Saudi official’s comment that Khashoggi exited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, maintaining that the commentator had gone missing inside.

“If this is true, where is he?” she said, adding that she or the Turkish police would have known if he had left the building. She was responding to a comment from a Saudi official, who told Reuters that reports Khashoggi had gone missing were “false”.
