Turkey puts fiancee of slain journalist Khashoggi under 24-hour protection

Spain Japan react on killing of Saudi journalist

He took a cab to Istanbul's famed Sultan Ahmed Mosque - popularly known as the Blue Mosque - a few hours after Khashoggi was seen entering the consulate, according to CNN.

On the way, they dumped a plastic bag, likely containing Khashoggi's clothes, in a rubbish bin. The video appears to show Madani without a beard, wearing a blue and white checked shirt and dark blue pants.

According to the source, it was decided that the two men did not look sufficiently alike, and so the conspirators made a decision to wipe clean the consulate's CCTV footage.

Saudi officials on Saturday confirmed that he died, after denying knowledge of his circumstances for over two weeks.

The Saudis issued a statement saying the tragedy was a result of "discussions" between Khashoggi and "persons with whom he met" that "led to quarrels and an altercation, which tragically resulted in his death".

Speaking to supporters on Sunday in Istanbul, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey is seeking justice and that he will "go into detail" in a speech to ruling party members in parliament.

The German response to Khashoggi's death comes in stark contrast to that of the Trump administration.

CCTV images uncovered by American press show a man dressed as the dead journalist leaving the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, and walking around the city on October 2.

It did it in its consulate in Istanbul in what the European Union foreign service called "a shocking violation of the 1963 Vienna Convention on Consular Relations", a treaty that governs worldwide diplomacy.

However on Sunday, Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir further muddied the waters by saying that in fact the kingdom didn't know how the Washington Post columnist died.

Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi's killers held him down while his fingers were hacked off and then injected him with a lethal drug before carrying him into another room where he was hoisted onto a conference table and dismembered.

Khashoggi speaks during an interview at an undisclosed location.

Worldwide outrage over Khashoggi's October 2 slaying at the hands of Saudi officials, under still-disputed circumstances, has marked the greatest crisis in the 33-year-old's rapid rise, already tarnished by a catastrophic war in Yemen and a sweeping roundup of Saudi businessmen and activists.

And Saudi Arabia's stock dropped by four percent in less than 20 days.

"They did not roll anything up in anything", the source said.

Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud has expressed his condolences to the family and relatives of Mr Jamal Khashoggi, according to a report carried by state-owned Saudi Press Agency.

Turkish officials said a 15-member Saudi team flew to Istanbul, waited for Khashoggi at the consulate before killing and dismembering the 59-year-old writer. The probe has also taken them to the town of Yalova, some 90km from Istanbul. Both areas are now being searched for Khashoggi's remains.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel says she backs a freeze on arms exports to Saudi Arabia following the killing of writer Jamal Khashoggi.

"We ought to suspend military sales, we ought to suspend certain security assistance and we ought to impose sanctions on any of those that were directly involved in this murder", Schiff said.
