WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The U.S. State Department is monitoring and seeking information on the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a U.S. official said on Wednesday, a day after his fiancée reported he had failed to emerge from a meeting at the Saudi mission in Istanbul.

“We are closely following reports of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance and continue to seek information,” a State Department official said.
