Turkish prosecutor says Khashoggi 'strangled' when he entered consulate, body dismembered

Turkish prosecutor says Khashoggi 'strangled' when he entered consulate, body dismembered

The Turkish statement said: "In accordance with plans made in advance, the victim, Jamal Khashoggi, was choked to death immediately after entering the Consulate General of Saudi Arabia". The death of the Washington Post columnist, a US resident who had American children, sparked global outrage and pitched the world's top oil exporter into crisis. It is also pressing Saudi Arabia for information concerning the whereabouts of Khashoggi's remains, which still haven't been found.

'There is no explanation about this.

"I believe that the Saudi regime knows where his body is".

"But that day, I was killed over and over again".

Hatice Cengiz, Khashoggi's fiance, recently gave an interview in London where she insisted that Saudi officials must've known about the murder, and said everyone involved should be punished.

"I do not think of going to the United States", she explained, according to CNN.

If Trump goes ahead with a deal, the senators wrote, they will introduce legislation to block it.

President Trump has said he will follow Congress' lead on potential punishing actions for the U.S. ally that has committed to a defence deal with American companies that's could be more than $100 billion.

'Our second visit was full of hope and it was the last step to our union. "We will continue to be demanding".

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 USA jobs.

Afterwards, I might let him know that I can help him communicate that a little bit better and, you know, we should work on that.

"I am disappointed by the actions of the leadership in many countries, particularly in the USA", she later told an audience in London. Singling out Trump, she urged him to 'help reveal the truth and ensure justice be served'. On Wednesday Switzerland said it would halt deliveries of spare weapons parts to Saudi Arabia over the murder. "Let's not let money taint our conscience and compromise our values".

Cengiz also said she wished she had entered the consulate instead of Khashoggi.

According to an ABC News report on Tuesday, Khashoggi's fiancée said that Khashoggi had also entered the same consulate on September 28 in order to request the documents.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan had earlier called Jamal Khashoggi's killing a planned political murder.

"A game to save somebody lies beneath this", Erdogan told reporters following a speech in parliament.

Turkish prosecutor Irfan Fidan said in a statement that Khashoggi had been "strangled as soon as he entered the consulate".

Cengiz had tough words for both Saudi Arabia and the United States.

She added, "President Trump should not pave the way for a coverup".

Saudi Arabia's top prosecutor, Saud al-Mojeb, was in Turkey for three days for discussions with prosecutors, leaving without commenting publicly on the case.
