Turkey says Khashoggi murder 'planned in savage manner'
3 weeks ago, 13:32
The murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside Riyadh's Istanbul consulate was planned in a "savage manner", Turkey's ruling party spokesman said on Monday.
"This was planned in an extremely savage manner, and we are faced with a situation where there has been a lot of effort to whitewash this," Justice and Development Party (AKP) spokesman Omer Celik told reporters in Ankara.
Riyadh said on Saturday that Khashoggi died during a "brawl" inside the consulate after a visit on October 2 to get documents.
Statement cames the day after Saudi authorities conceded Khashoggi was killed inside their diplomatic compound in Istanbul.
