Footage of an alleged hit squad sent to target missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul has been aired on Turkish television.

He previously compared Saudi's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to Russia's authoritarian leader Vladimir Putin.

Turkish authorities claim Mr Khashoggi was murdered inside the building, but Riyadh has dismissed the allegations as "baseless" - although it has not provided any evidence to show he left the consulate.

State broadcaster TRT World aired the CCTV footage on Wednesday, while the Sabah newspaper - which is close to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan - claims to have identified the members of the "assassination squad".
