Reports that journalist Jamal Kashoggi was killed in Saudi Consulate and cut up with a saw

The security services in Turkey are insisting that Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Kashoggi was killed in his country’s Consulate in Turkey, and a saw was used to cut up his body.

Foreign media are quoting Turkish sources which investigated Kashoggi’s disappearance last week. Kashoggi is seen on security camera footage (see photo) entering the Consulate, but no footage has emerged so far showing him leaving the building.

The Turkish sources are also saying that Kashoggi’s murder was carried out on orders from the Saudi Royal Family, since an operation on these lines would require a mandate from the country’s highest authorities.

On the day Kashoggi disappeared, 15 Saudi secret service officers had gone to Turkey and had then left the country by air some hours later. They included an autopsy expert, who is suspected as having been involved in the cutting up of the body.

Saudi Arabia’s highest authorities are denying having ordered the murder of Kashoggi, and are insisting the journalist emerged from the consulate safe and sound.
