Turkey To Quiz More Witnesses In Probe Of Killed Saudi Journalist

Turkish investigators had concluded days ago that Khashoggi, a contributing columnist to The Washington Post was killed and dismembered by a Saudi team dispatched to Istanbul.

"We support the Turkish investigation into it, and the British government wants to see people held to account for that death".

TRT World has obtained exclusive CCTV pictures of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi just minutes before he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said in a statement Saturday night that the Saudis' "explanations" of the killing of Khashoggi "lack consistency and credibility".

"Discussions that took place between him and the persons who met him.at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul led to a brawl and a fistfight with the citizen, Jamal Khashoggi, which led to his death, may his soul rest in peace", he said in a statement. The authorities initially dismissed reports that Khashoggi had gone missing inside the consulate as false and said he had left the building soon after entering.

Asked whether officials at the CIA or the National Security Agency may have heard the recording, Mr. Trump responded: "Not that we know of".

What role did Saud al-Qahtani, who has publicly stated that he does not even tweet without the Crown Prince's approval, play and what drove him to carry out this heinous murder?

The Istanbul-based body, of which Khashoggi was a member, said it wanted all those involved in the plot - right up to the highest rung - to be punished.

October 6: Saudi Arabia says it has dispatched a team to "investigate and cooperate" with Turkish officials over Khashoggi's case. Earlier on Friday, US President Donald Trump had warned the United States, which is Saudi Arabia's biggest backer, could impose sanctions if it was proved the journalist was killed. Regarding the Saudi arrests, he said, "It's a big first step".

"I don't think it's credible at all", the senator said. "I'm not satisfied until we find the answer", he said.

"This really ought to be something that causes us to do a reexamination of our relationship with Saudi Arabia".

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - who has remained largely silent, even as Turkey's pro-Government media reported gruesome allegations about how Khashoggi was killed - said he would reveal "necessary details" about the case later in the week.
