It is now almost a certainty. The Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who has not given any sign of life since
his entry on October 2 at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul was probably killed. Turkey has told US officials that it has audio and video recordings to prove it, according to the Washington Post.
"The recording of voices inside the embassy details what happened. One can hear his voice [de Khashoggi] and those of several men speaking Arabic. We hear that he is interrogated, tortured and then killed, "says an official. According to him, Turkey is reluctant to divulge the registration because it would prove that she is spying on other nations in embassies on Turkish soil.
Unread WhatsApp messages
According to a Reuters source, Jamal Khashoggi, who went to the embassy to obtain a document to marry his Turkish bride, was reportedly killed and dismembered in order to be able to remove his body discreetly. WhatsApp messages sent by a friend remained unanswered and read-only.
Turkey quickly accused Saudi Arabia of killing the exiled journalist in the United States, who often criticized the regime of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in editorials published by the Washington Post. Ryad has denied but the pressure is mounting on the Arab Arabia. Turkey, France and the United States have asked that all the light be shed on the case.
