Khashoggi disappearance: Trump asks Turkey for recordings

US president has dismissed allegations against Saudi Arabia as another case of 'guilty until proven innocent'.

    US President Trump will receive a report on the Khashoggi case within hours; he has asked Turkish authorities to hand over any audio or video recordings they have.

    Trump has so far refused to condemn Riyadh over the case but he's facing growing pressure from politicians to reveal his business ties with Riyadh and take action against the Saudis.
