Saudi team sent to Istanbul to 'cover up' Khashoggi's murder

Saudi Arabia's conduct of the war also came under new scrutiny after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"Turkey approaches the Khashoggi killing with transparency and in a serious manner", Oktay said, adding that Turkish authorities are now seeking the person who ordered the killing on Turkish soil.

The gruesome crime, which has already caused an worldwide uproar against Saudi Arabia, prompted a number of member states of the United Nations council on Monday to submit lists of detailed questions for the review, including questions from the U.S., the UK, Austria and Switzerland, on the Khashoggi case.

However, when grilled on our nation's involvement, Trump declined to say if the deaths would make him rethink the arms deal with Saudi Arabia, although he made it clear that using USA provided bombs to kill civilians bothered him.

Government-linked Turkish media reported that Khashoggi's body was dismembered and removed from the consulate.

The official said Turkey believes that two members of the team "came to Turkey for the sole objective of covering up evidence" before Turkish police were allowed to search the Saudi Consulate, where Khashoggi was killed on October 2 after he entered to collect a document he needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.

He told the hearing that King Salman had instructed the Saudi public prosecutor to "proceed with the investigation into this case according to the applicable laws" with a view to establishing the facts and "bringing all the perpetrators to justice".

Abdullah, the younger sibling and the last of Khashoggi's children to see his father, said information about what happened inside the Saudi consulate remains vague.




The sons of slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi have issued an appeal for the return of their father's body.

Saudi Arabia finally allowed Turkish police to search the consulate for the first time on 15 October.

Six Saudi officials have been dismissed and 18 people arrested in connection with the killing, which Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman denounced as "repulsive".

"I ask Saudi Arabia now publicly, through your program, to have the investigation made public as soon as possible", he said.

He told Turkey's Anadolu news agency that it had been accepted that Khashoggi, who disappeared in Saudi Arabia's Istanbul Consulate on October 2, was targeted in a pre-meditated murder.

The newspaper alleged that while the Saudi team's declared intent was to investigate the murder, it actually meant to cover-up the deed.

The Saudi delegation is due to report back on Friday on which recommendations from states it has accepted.

President Trump has rejected the possibility of cancelling billion-dollar arms deals with Saudi Arabia over the situation, but did warn of "very severe" consequences if the Saudi government is found to be responsible for Khashoggi's death.
