Why did Khashoggi murder get 24/7 coverage by corporate media? He was part of DC elite! – Lee Camp

Istanbul's chief prosecutor's office has said that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was suffocated as soon as he entered Saudi Arabia's consulate in a planned killing four weeks ago, and his body was then dismembered and disposed of.

The statement comes after Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor, Saud al-Mojeb, left Turkey following meetings with his counterpart in Istanbul.

The results from the Saudi authorities' initial investigation showed that Khashoggi was killed after a discussion turned into a fight during his visit to the consulate. It is also pressing Saudi Arabia for information about who ordered Khashoggi's killing and the location of his remains.

Saudi officials have not revealed who has been arrested in relation to the killing despite calls from Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan.

The journalist was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Saudi officials at first insisted that Khashoggi left the compound on October 2 after completing his paperwork.

Michelle Bachelet said she welcomed steps taken by the Turkish and Saudi government to probe his death, but given Saudi Arabia's apparent involvement in the slaying, "the bar must be set very high".




But Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir rejected the request, saying the men will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia and dismissed media "hysteria".

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.

There has been no announcement by the Saudis about the visit, which comes just days after Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel was in Turkey to review evidence before briefing US President Donald Trump.

Al-Mojeb also visited the Saudi consulate where Khashoggi went missing, Al Jazeera reported.

"Saudi officials need to reveal the local co-operators There is no point trying to save some people from under this".

Saudi Arabia changed its narrative about Khashoggi's killing several times, eventually admitting that he died inside the consulate.

Meanwhile, Saudi's Crown Prince has maintained that perpetrators responsible for the killing of Jamal Khashoggi will be brought to justice once the investigation is complete.
