Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan suggested the Saudis may have covered up a murder in their Turkish embassy, a dramatic new twist in the case of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Investigators were yesterday allowed access to the Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, where Turkey has said a hit team of 15 killed and dismembered Khashoggi.
Erdogan said they found surfaces newly painted over, which could indicate an attempt to conceal evidence.

As Pompeo visits Riyadh, reports say Saudis now considering blaming Khashoggi death on interrogation gone wrong

3 monthes ago   |   By

Saudi Arabia is considering saying missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in a botched interrogation, according to media reports, an explanation that could deflect blame from Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and give the U.S. and Turkey a way out of confronting a regional powerhouse.
