Google has become the latest high profile name to pull out of a Saudi conference dubbed “Davos in the desert”.

Khashoggi vanished on 2 October after visiting the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. Authorities there believe he was killed in the building by Saudi agents, which Riyadh has dismissed as “lies”.
