Jamal Khashoggi Was Strangled And Dismembered: Turkish Prosecutor

Why did Khashoggi murder get 24/7 coverage by corporate media? He was part of DC elite! – Lee Camp

Also on Wednesday, the Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor's Office said that Khashoggi was choked to death immediately after entering the Saudi Arabian consulate in the city and his body was dismembered after he was strangled to death.

The announcement came as Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor, Saud al-Mojeb, ended a three-day visit to Istanbul during which he held talks with Fidan and other Turkish officials.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has demanded more information from Saudi Arabia, has said Mr Fidan had asked Mr Mojeb to disclose who sent a 15-strong team from Riyadh which is suspected of involvement in the killing.

"The victim Jamal Khashoggi's body was dismembered and destroyed following his death by suffocation again, in line with the advance plans", the two-page statement read. Who was the alleged local collaborator that the Saudis say took part?

But President Donald Trump has ruled out major actions such as ending arms sales to the kingdom, the largest foreign buyer of USA weapons.

Okaz has learnt from Turkish sources that the Saudi and Turkish sides have agreed to continue cooperation in the investigations.

"Then it should take decisive action to impose sanctions on those responsible - including, if the available evidence points to him, Mohammed bin Salman - and reshape US relations with Saudi Arabia", said the board.

Mr Khashoggi entered the consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to get the needed paperwork to marry his partner.

Mr Khashoggi, a Saudi national working for the U.S. press, was a well-known critic of his home country's rulers.

The Saudi attorney general then acknowledged that Khashoggi was killed in a premeditated murder. A critic of the Saudi crown prince, Khashoggi had been living in exile in the United States.

Erdogan said the prosecutor repeated to his Saudi counterpart Turkey's extradition request for 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia for the October 2 killing to be put on trial in Istanbul.

Turkey has suggested Saudi agents murdered Khashoggi under the orders of the ruling royal family.

The death of the Washington Post columnist and Saudi dissident continues to draw global outrage and demands for answers from the Saudi Royal Family.
