Jamal Khashoggi Was Strangled And Dismembered: Turkish Prosecutor

Khashoggis fiancee hits out at Trump over cover-up

His body was then immediately dismembered.

Just hours after the Saudi prosecutor left Istanbul, the prosecutor's office said the three days of meetings produced "no concrete results".

"The victim's body was dismembered and destroyed following his death by suffocation".

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia over the journalist's slaying.

The murder of the Washington Post columnist and US resident, Khashoggi spiralled into a crisis for Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has arrested 18 officials in connection with the plot to kill Khashoggi, while U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has revoked the visas of Saudi officials believed to have taken part in the killing.

Mr Khashoggi, a 59-year-old columnist for The Washington Post, vanished after entering the consulate in Istanbul to pick up paperwork for his upcoming marriage to his fiancee, who was waiting for him outside.

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

However Turkish media has reported that Saudi Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb has refused to share information from Riyadh's own investigation since arriving on Sunday.

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

There has been no announcement by the Saudis about the visit, which comes just days after Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel was in Turkey to review evidence before briefing US President Donald Trump.

"What the Turks still don't know has been publicly voiced by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan: Where is Mr. Khashoggi's body?"

Saudi Arabia changed its narrative about Khashoggi's killing several times, eventually admitting that he died inside the consulate.

Speaking alongside the Czech prime minister later on Sunday, Mattis was asked how an investigation would be able to determine whether Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman had any involvement in the killing.

She added: "I urge the Saudi authorities to reveal the whereabouts of his body without further delay or prevarication".

Saudi reluctance to cooperate, as well as the U.S. investigation and Ms. Cengiz's possible meeting with Trump, complicate apparent Turkish efforts to find a resolution of the escalating crisis that would allow Saudi Arabia to save face and salvage Turkey's economic relationship with the kingdom.
