The recordings that could reveal the killing of Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi embassy in Turkey in shocking detail have been shared with France, Germany, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom, and the US, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said.
Meanwhile, the reporter's sons have issued desperate pleas to find their father's body so that they can give him a proper burial and receive closure. "We gave them to Saudi Arabia, to America, to the Germans, the French, to the British, to all of them", Mr Erdogan said.
Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body may be "dissolved completely" and the Turkish officials are calling for an Islamic prayer for the murdered, news website Middle East Eye reports..
"The 15 people who came to Istanbul [from Saudi Arabia], who are also among 18 detained by Saudi authorities, surely know who killed Jamal Khashoggi and where his body is".
Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who was critical of the Saudi government and its Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, vanished from the Saudi consulate on October 2.
MEE has previously revealed that seven of those sent to kill Khashoggi were members of the crown prince's personal security detail.
Saudi Arabia has admitted he was murdered there, but denied suggestions its royal family was involved. They include the 15 members of the alleged assassination squad.
Khashoggi was last seen entering the consulate on October 2 to obtain documents for his forthcoming marriage.
"Saudi Arabia's Attorney General Saud Al-Mojeb did not answer the question concerning the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body". President Donald Trump has reiterated he does not want to jeopardise money coming into the USA from Saudi Arabia.
Erdogan accused Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor, who was sent to Istanbul last month as part of a joint probe, of employing "delaying tactics".
Turkey has given recordings on the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany, France, and Britain, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday.
