(Iraq Now News)- More media giants are boycotting a major investment conference in Saudi Arabia this month, following the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi last week.

Among the media sponsors and speakers to withdraw their involvement in the event - dubbed "Davos in the Desert" - is the Financial Times, CNN and CNBC.

They were all due to take part in the Future Investment Initiative (FII) between the 23 and 25 October in Riyadh, headed by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, a driver of economic change in the kingdom.
