Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 Saudi suspects in connection with Khashoggi's killing

The statement is the first public confirmation by a Turkish official that Mr Khashoggi was strangled and dismembered after he entered the Saudi Consulate on October 2 to collect paperwork needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.

After months of absence in London, senior Saudi royal Prince Ahmad bin Abdulaziz arrived Tuesday in Riyadh, prompting conjecture among Saudi expatriates that older members of the Gulf kingdom's ruling family are ready to assert themselves in the wake of the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi. "As Saudi public prosecutor, you have to ask that question, so you can reveal it", Erdogan told reporters in Ankara on Tuesday, shortly after the head of the Saudi investigation entered the kingdom's consulate.

"Given the principles at stake, we urge Mayor Muriel E. Bowser and the DC Council to make an exception in this case".

Saudi Arabia has said this will not happen.

The revelations came only an hour after Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor left Istanbul, and his Turkish counterpart said he was "obliged" to release the information after their talks produced "no concrete results".

Hungary's right-wing government has already since said it will not sign the final document at a ceremony in Morocco in December. In particular, the government argues that the pact does not respect human rights.


During the visit, he met high-ranking Turkish officials and inspected the Saudi consulate premises.

According to observers, the visit of Al-Muajab will be a major breakthrough in the ongoing investigation into the killing of Khashoggi. He was a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the de facto Saudi ruler, who has purged rivals and consolidated power.

Cengiz described Khashoggi as a "martyr for a cause" and said she hoped his body would be returned soon so his loved ones could bury him.

Western powers have expressed outrage at his killing and demanded answers from Riyadh, although Trump warned against halting a Saudi arms deal to increase the pressure, saying it would harm U.S. jobs.

"I am disappointed by the actions of the leadership in many countries, particularly in the United States", she later told an audience in London.

Saudi Arabia has subsequently said that Mr Khashoggi was murdered, and that it is "determined to find out all the facts". (AP) Donald Trump said Khashoggi's death was the worst cover up in history. The Turkish government, however, maintains that Khashoggi was assassinated by a hit squad sent from Saudi Arabia specifically for the task. Riyadh maintained the killing was a rogue operation by renegade security and intelligence officials and not a mission endorsed by MBS.

Gruesome reports in the Turkish media had previously alleged that Khashoggi had been killed and cut into pieces by a team sent from Riyadh to silence him. "I want justice to be served not only for those who murdered Jamal but those who ordered his murder".

The statement said Turkey renewed its request for the 18 suspects to be extradited.

The affair has tarnished the image of the crown prince, who has positioned himself as a Saudi reformer.

The death of the Washington Post columnist and Saudi dissident continues to draw global outrage and demands for answers from the Saudi Royal Family.
