Turkish Gov’t Says It Has Video Evidence of Khashoggi’s Murder at Saudi Consulate

HeadlineOct 12, 2018

The Washington Post is reporting the Turkish government has told U.S. officials it has audio and video evidence that Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. Officials say the recordings show a Saudi security team snatching Khashoggi as he walked into the consulate on October 2 and then killing him and dismembering his body. The audio and video recordings have not yet been released. Khashoggi had written critically about the Saudi government and the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman. The Washington Post has also reported, based on U.S. intelligence intercepts, that Mohammed bin Salman had directly ordered an operation to lure Khashoggi back to Saudi Arabia. Khashoggi’s alleged murder has sparked a diplomatic crisis for the Trump administration, particularly Trump’s son-in-law and senior White House adviser Jared Kushner, who has cultivated an extremely close relationship with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
