  • Turkish officials have concluded a team of 15 Saudi agents was involved in the killing of Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Arabia Consulate in Istanbul

Turkey's chief prosecutor on Wednesday said Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was strangled immediately after he entered Saudi consulate in general in Istanbul.

The fiancee of murdered Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi has demanded that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman reveal the whereabouts of his body.

Irfan Fidan, Istanbul's chief prosecutor, said a Saudi "hit team" at the government building ultimately dismembered the dissident writer with a bone saw.

"Who sent these 15 people?"

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan stressed that all details of the case should be revealed, including who gave the instruction for the "premeditated murder".

"We can not leave this issue unsolved, we need to solve it now". "This needs to be solved now; there is no point in excuses", Erdogan told journalists.

Al-Mojeb also visited the Saudi consulate where Khashoggi went missing, Al Jazeera reported.

He met with Istanbul's chief prosecutor twice, visited the consulate and spoke with Turkey's MIT intelligence agency.

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 Saudi suspects detained in Saudi Arabia over the killing of Khashoggi. The death of the Washington Post columnist, a USA resident who had American children, sparked global outrage and pitched the world's top oil exporter into crisis.

She added, "President Trump should not pave the way for a coverup".

"I am extremely disappointed by the stance of the leadership of many countries, particularly in the U.S.", she told a memorial event in London. Speaking at a packed memorial event in London, Cengiz said she held the Saudi government responsible for her fiancée's killing and called on the "evil criminals and their cowardly political masters" to face justice. On Wednesday Switzerland said it would halt deliveries of spare weapons parts to Saudi Arabia over the murder.

Mr Khashoggi, a Saudi national working for the USA press, was a well-known critic of his home country's rulers.

The Washington Post writer and frequent critic of Saudi leadership returned to the building October 2 and was killed.

However a senior Turkish official said Wednesday that Saudi officials seemed "primarily interested in finding out what evidence Turkey had against the perpetrators".

The Saudi leadership has since blamed a "rogue operation".

But Saudi Foreign Minister Adel Al Jubeir rejected the request, saying the men will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia and dismissed media "hysteria". "There are movements and there are signs that a dialogue is taking place within the royal family", says Khalil Jahshan, a friend of the slain journalist and director of the Arab Center, a research group in Washington.
