TURKEY has released images of two Saudis allegedly linked to Jamal Khashoggi’s murder carrying large cases. The footage has sparked speculation they could have contained the journalist’s body.
The journalist’s murder has sparked a global outcry and the Saudis have given conflicting accounts of what happened to him.
On October 2, he walked into the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul and he never left.
Saudi officials have claimed Mr Khashoggi died accidentally in a fight during an unauthorised overseas kidnapping operation.
However, these security camera images broadcast by CNN Turk could challenge Riyadh’s account of the 59-year-old’s murder.
The Turkish authorities have been investigating a well in the garden of Saudi Arabia’s consulate as part of the investigation.
The Turkey officials believe the journalist, a critic of the Saudi government, was killed by Saudi agents inside the building,
They have not accepted Saudi’s efforts to blame rogue operatives for the murder and urged Riyadh to search “top to bottom” to find out who was responsible.
However, the international community has rejected this Saudi explanation and the Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said there is strong evidence to suggest the attack was “premeditated”.
