Turkey's president says the country's airports are being monitored in an effort to find out what happened to Jamal Khashoggi. The journalist, a vocal critic of the Saudi leadership, has not been seen since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
International pop artists like K-pop group Super Junior are hugely popular in the Gulf monarchy. But should international stars shun the country because of its poor record on human rights?
Press freedom group Reporters Without Borders said it was only confirming the "unprecedented" mission after Saudi Arabia refused to release 30 jailed journalists and as it prepares to host next year's G20 summit.
The UN said that Khashoggi was "the victim of a brutal and premeditated" murder, "planned and perpetrated" by Saudi officials. The journalist was allegedly strangled in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
The Saudi journalist's killing was conducted by state officials, the UN's rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, Agnes Callamard, told DW. She also says Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman should be investigated.
