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.

Erdogan said they found surfaces newly painted over, which could indicate an attempt to conceal evidence.

1 month 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.
