Khashoggi murder: Turkey gives official details of Saudi writer's death

Khashoggis fiancee hits out at Trump over cover-up

Jamal Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul - and he was then dismembered before being disposed of, a top Turkish prosecutor has said.

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.

He also demanded that the 18 suspects Saudi Arabia arrested over Khashoggi's killing be sent to Istanbul, the state-run Anadolu Agency reported.

Under mounting pressure, the Saudi regime changed its narrative about Khashoggi's killing several times.

Saudi Arabia has repeatedly shifted its account of what happened to Khashoggi after he entered its consulate nearly a month ago.

Khashoggi vanished after entering the consulate in Istanbul on 2 October to pick up paperwork for his upcoming marriage with Cengiz, who was waiting for him outside.

According to Reuters, his intervention comes after Saudi Arabia was thrown under the spotlight following the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a prominent critic of the Crown Prince.

The new details surrounding the death of Mr Khashoggi, 59, were released following a meeting between Mr Fidan and Saudi counterpart Saud al Mojeb.

But the district attorney's office dismissed the charges, said Tim Ayock, spokesman for police in the town of Matthews. A package sent to former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper discovered Friday also used CNN's NY address.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday that the Saudis were protecting the person responsible for Khashoggi's murder, adding that Turkey would not abandon its investigation.

Saudi officials shifted their story last week after evidence from Turkey revealed that the killing was in fact premeditated.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said on Sunday that he had met Saudi Arabia's foreign minister and called for a transparent investigation into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The board accused the Saudi government and its "de facto accomplices" in the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump of remaining silent instead of clarifying the questions about the murder.

Khashoggi was allegedly killed by Saudi agents at their consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2.

Often on the receiving end of Khashoggi's criticisms, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had earlier lauded the "unique" cooperation between Saudi and Turkey.

Riyadh and Ankara have agreed to cooperate in the investigation of Khashoggi's slaying inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
