‘Khashoggi strangled, dismembered’ … Saudi royal returns home

Saudi Arabia’s top prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb walks to board a plane to leave Turkey, in Istanbul on Oct 31. A top Turkish prosecutor said Wednesday that Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul as part of a premeditated killing, and that his body was dismembered before being disposed of. A statement from chief Istanbul prosecutor Irfan Fidan’s office also said that discussions with al-Mojeb have yielded no ‘concrete results’ despite ‘good-willed efforts’ by Turkey to uncover the truth.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul as part of a premeditated killing, and his body was dismembered before being disposed of, a top Turkish prosecutor said Wednesday.

Chief Istanbul prosecutor Irfan Fidan’s office also said in a statement that discussions with Saudi chief prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb yielded no “concrete results” despite Turkey’s “good intentions to uncover the truth.”

The statement was the first public confirmation by a Turkish official that Khashoggi was strangled and dismembered after he entered the Saudi Consulate on Oct 2 to collect paperwork he needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.

A senior Saudi Arabian prince who recently appeared to criticise the King and Crown Prince has returned to Riyadh, in what some sources close to the royal family say is a sign it wants to form a united front amid its worst political crisis in a generation. Prince Ahmed bin Abdulaziz, a younger brother of King Salman and uncle of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, arrived on Tuesday after 2-1/2 months abroad, three sources said, as the Kingdom deals with the fallout from the murder of Khashoggi.
