'Khashoggi's body disposed of after dismembering'

Baku, October 31, AZERTAC

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body has been disposed of after being dismembered, Istanbul Prosecutor's Office said on Wednesday, Anadolu Agency reported.

"The body of Khashoggi has been dismembered after being killed in the Saudi Consulate," the office said in a statement, adding that he had been strangled soon after entering the building.

Meanwhile, Saudi officials gave no information about a local collaborator in the killing of Khashoggi, the Istanbul Prosecutor's Office added.

Earlier this month, press accounts quoted a Saudi official as saying the body had been given to a “local collaborator” to take care of, but no Saudi official has addressed the body’s whereabouts on record.

The statement also said Saudi Arabia invited Istanbul's chief public prosecutor and a Turkish delegation as part of the investigation into the slain journalist.

The office reiterated its request for the extradition of suspects arrested by Saudi Arabia.
