Turkish President Erdoğan urges Saudi prosecutor to probe who ordered Khashoggi hit

Jamal Khashoggi

"The victim's body was dismembered and destroyed following his death by suffocation", the statement said.

The Turkish investigators rejected the request, TRT said, instead of calling on the Saudi prosecutor to reveal information about the location of Khashoggi's body, which has not yet been found.

Gruesome reports in the Turkish media had previously alleged that Khashoggi, a 59-year-old Washington Post contributor critical of the powerful Saudi crown prince, had been killed and cut into pieces by a team sent from Riyadh to silence him.

The announcement came as al-Mojeb ended a three-day visit to Istanbul during which he held talks with Fidan and other Turkish officials about the murder plot, which the Saudis first flatly denied before offering a number of false versions of the events that resulted in his death.

She stressed that an autopsy on the victim's body is crucial in any murder investigation, asking Saudi authorities to reveal the whereabouts of Khasoggi's body "without further delay or prevarication".

"Until Saudi Arabia officially announced his death, I never gave up hope that he was alive", Cengiz told BBC Arabic on Monday.

Cleveland Browns fire offensive coordinator Todd Haley
Originally, it seemed there was a massive power struggle between Hue Jackson and Todd Haley for control of the offensive unit. Dorsey doesn't have reason to worry about that scenario anymore, however, as Haley also was sacked Monday afternoon.

In the letter, Istanbul's chief public prosecutor and a Turkish delegation were also invited to Saudi Arabia, along with the evidence they have obtained, as part of the probe, it added.

Boris Johnson accepted a £14,000 trip to Saudi Arabia from the country's foreign affairs ministry only a few days before the journalist Jamal Khashoggi was brutally murdered in the country's consulate in Istanbul. Jamal Khashoggi went missing on October 2.

The Turkish public prosecutor's office said they could not achieve concrete results from these talks despite the office's good intentions to uncover the truth behind the killing.

In an interview with ABC News, Cengiz said Khashoggi had been anxious about being spirited back to Saudi Arabia the first time he went to the consulate unannounced on 28 September, but was pleasantly surprised when he received a warm reception.

The killing of Khashoggi, a critic of de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has put into focus the West's close relationship with Saudi Arabia, which is a major arms buyer and lynchpin of Washington's regional plans to contain Iran.

Saudi leadership has blamed a "rogue operation" for the killing of Khashoggi.

Turkey says Khashoggi murder 'planned in savage manner'
Merkel reiterated that she condemned Khashoggi's killing "in the strongest terms" and saw an "urgent need to clear up" the case. Twenty consulate workers gave statements to prosecutors in relation to the incident last week, NTV had reported previously.

The global community refused to accept the Saudi claim that the incident was not a premeditated murder.

"Like everyone else, I am still waiting for answers", she said.

He had entered the consulate to sort out documents for their marriage.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday the investigation needs to be completed swiftly.

"I and my government would like all those responsible, from the person who gave this order to those who carried it out, to be brought to justice and punished under global law", she said.

Saudi Consulate Vehicle Searched In Istanbul In Khashoggi Probe
The Turkish leader said three operatives arrived in Istanbul the day before the killing on an apparent reconnaissance mission. Riyadh has maintained that neither bin Salman nor his father, King Salman, knew of the operation to target Khashoggi.
