Jamal Khashoggi ‘strangled immediately’ in Saudi consulate

Khashoggis fiancee hits out at Trump over cover-up

The Istanbul prosecutor also said that a series of meeting with the chief prosecutor of Saudi Arabia had not yielded any "concrete results".

Turkey has given its first official statement on how it believes writer Jamal Khashoggi was killed, saying he was immediately strangled.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has repeatedly called on Riyadh to reveal the location of the body, as well as who ordered the hit.

"We want to know where the body [of Khashoggi] is, we want that our authorities receive information about who the local collaborators are", Çelik said.

"This incident, this assassination, took place in the Saudi consulate", she said, speaking through a translator.

Turkish officials have said from the beginning that Khashoggi was killed with premeditation and his body was dismembered by a team of Saudi operatives dispatched from Riyadh.

After a weeks-long denial, Saudi Arabia admitted on October 25 that the journalist fell victim to a premeditated killing in the building, although the whereabouts of his body remained unclear.

Khashoggi, a 59-year-old Saudi journalist and Washington Post contributor critical of the powerful Saudi crown prince, was killed after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain paperwork ahead of his upcoming wedding.

Meanwhile, the Turkish media reported that the attorney General of Saudi Arabia made a brief visit to Turkey, where he met with representatives of the Prosecutor's office and security services. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir has said the kingdom will try the perpetrators and bring them to justice after the investigation is completed.

Pompeo said last week that the United States had identified 21 Saudis whose visas would either be revoked or who would be ineligible for future visas and said that more action would come.

Under increasing pressure, Saudi Arabia has changed its story about Khashoggi's killing several times.

Saudi Arabia initially denied any involvement in Khashoggi's disappearance, but a Saudi official eventually attributed his death to a botched attempt to return him to the kingdom. It recently acknowledged that Turkish evidence shows the killing was premeditated.

"Turkey, the U.S. and Saudi Arabia have all agreed that he was killed at the consulate".
