Turkish officials, who have an audio recording of Khashoggi’s murder, say a crew sent from Riyadh attacked Khashoggi and dismembered him. He was at the consulate to obtain a marriage license.
“They committed the murder, then after that, in three or four hours, they left Turkey,” Turkish Defense Minister Hulusi Akar said at a panel discussion on Sunday.
“Because of diplomatic immunity, they left very easily without having a problem with the luggage. Possibly within the luggage, they carried the … body of Jamal Khashoggi,” he added.
