Turkish prosecutor says Saudi journalist strangled, dismembered

Jamal Khashoggi

The statement was the first public confirmation by a Turkish official that Khashoggi was strangled and mutilated after he entered the Saudi Consulate on October 2.

Khashoggi's body parts were disposed of after being dismembered, the Prosecutor's Office added.

The Turkish fiancee of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi has called on US President Donald Trump and other leaders to ensure that his death in Istanbul is not covered up, while Saudi Arabia's top prosecutor on Tuesday visited the Saudi Consulate where officials from his government killed the writer.

In a statement issued after two days of talks with Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb, it also said no concrete results were reached in those meetings.

Riyadh sent the head of its investigation to Istanbul this week seeking to draw a line under a crisis that has brought near unprecedented scrutiny on Saudi Arabia.

Al-Jazeera reported that the MIT refused to provide recordings and evidence on the case to al-Mojeb.

"We are petitioning for the roundabout in front of the Saudi embassy in Washington to be named after Jamal Khashoggi", Awad said, according to the Washington Post.

His Turkish fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, gave a tearful interview to local television last week, saying she would never have let her partner enter the consulate if she had thought that the "Saudi Arabia authorities would hatch a plot" to kill him.

A source close to Johnson said he had "visited Saudi Arabia to discuss his long-standing campaign of improving education for women and girls" during the trip from 19 to 21 September.

Turkey wants the suspects to be extradited. He was a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto Saudi ruler, who has purged rivals and consolidated power.

Al-Mojeb was the first Saudi official to acknowledge that the killing was "premeditated" based on the results of Turkey's investigation.

The dissident reporter disappeared after going to the the diplomatic mission on October 2.

Earlier this month, press accounts quoted a Saudi official as saying the body had been given to a "local collaborator" to take care of, but no Saudi official has addressed the body's whereabouts on record. The prosecutor's office reiterated Turkey's request for extradition of suspects arrested by Saudi Arabia in Khashoggi case given that the crime scene was in Turkey and Turkish officials are authorized to conduct the investigation.

'He should not pave the way for a cover-up of my fiance's murder. U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis has said the killing undermines regional stability and has urged Saudi Arabia to conduct a full and complete investigation.
