ISTANBUL (Reuters) - An 11-member Saudi investigation team arrived at the Saudi consul’s Istanbul residence on Wednesday, broadcaster CNN Turk said, ahead of an expected search by Turkish police in relation to journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance.

Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu had said that Turkey hopes to enter the residence on Wednesday.

Turkish police were expected to search the residence on Tuesday but officers at the scene said it was called off for the day because Saudi officials were unable to join.
