Turkish Foreign Ministry spokesman Hami Aksoy said Tuesday that Saudi authorities have notified Ankara that they were "open to co-operation" and would allow the consulate building to be searched. A flurry of activity is seen outside the residence, with men going in and out, until the van parks in the garage.
