Khashoggi's body was 'dissolved' after murder: Erdogan adviser

Khashoggi's body was 'dissolved' after murder: Erdogan adviser

But, the statement said, the Saudis had not answered three questions the Turkish side posed - namely, where Khashoggi's body is; whether Saudi investigators had uncovered evidence about the planning of his killing; and the identity of the reported "local collaborator".

The Post also reported that bin Salman, in conversations with the White House, has described Khashoggi as "a unsafe Islamist", claiming he was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.

It is also pressing Saudi Arabia for information concerning Khashoggi's remains, which still haven't been found, as well as who ordered the journalist's slaying.

Khashoggi, a prominent Saudi journalist and critic of the regime, was last seen entering the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told the USA he considered murdered writer Jamal Khashoggi to be a unsafe Islamist, media reports say.

"We made a commitment of holding accountable all those responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi", the United States chief diplomat noted in a separate WIBK radio interview. Turkish state news agency Anadolu reported that he had boarded a plane back to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, having met with the Istanbul chief prosecutor twice.

According to The Washington Post, Netanyahu has specifically told the White House that the crown prince is a key strategic partner and a linchpin of the US-Israeli front against Iran's regional influence.




Exactly one month after the disappearance and the subsequent murder of the Washington Post columnist inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the United States has yet to issue the "severe punishment" that Donald Trump had promised if the regime's involvement in the journalist's death were confirmed. Imagine what would happen if Saudi Arabia were destabilized.

The journalist's family told the Post in response: "Jamal Khashoggi was not a member of the Muslim Brotherhood".

President Trump has said he is "not satisfied" with the Saudi account. "He denied such claims repeatedly over the past several years", the family said.

On Wednesday Turkey said he was strangled immediately after entering the consulate and his body dismembered "in accordance with plans made in advance".

After Saudi Arabia admitted that Khashoggi was killed in its Istanbul consulate, five high-ranking officials were dismissed, including bin Salman's media chief and the deputy head of the Saudi intelligence service.

UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt also said it was an appalling act, adding that it had "possibly" given the USA and the UK a chance to put new pressure on Saudi Arabia over other issues.
