Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is joining the leaders of France and Germany in voicing concerns about the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who’s feared dead.
”This particular case is, of course, of concern, and we join with our allies around the world in expressing serious issues with these reports,” Trudeau told a closing news conference at the Francophonie summit in Armenia.

Multiple reports suggest Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who lived the U.S., was murdered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul 10 days ago.
Turkish authorities claim to have audio and visual evidence a Saudi security squad tortured and killed Khashoggi.
Saudi Arabia calls the allegations baseless but welcomes Turkey’s approval of a joint working group to investigate.
