Family requests return of Khashoggi’s remains

Khashoggi's body parts transported in suitcases: Report

Beginning on October 12, the two men visited the Saudi Consulate regularly for a week, the paper reported.

They said the fact that a clean-up team was dispatched suggested Khashoggi's killing "was within the knowledge of top Saudi officials".

The sons also said they were seeking the return of their father's body, which has not been found, so Mr Khashoggi can be buried in Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has informed Turkey that it will pay compensation money to the family and fiancee of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Turkish official has revealed.

Saudi officials said the team was acting on its own and not at the direction of the royal ruling family.

The kingdom's public prosecutor, Saud al-Mojeb, later said that the journalist was killed in a premeditated attack.

The information was the latest in a series of leaks from Turkish officials apparently aimed at keeping up the pressure on Saudi Arabia and ensuring that the killing is not covered-up.

It is alleged that the powerful heir to the throne must have at a minimum been aware of the plan to kill Khashoggi, who had become increasingly critical of the Saudi royal family since moving to the USA in self-imposed exile in 2017.

Prince Alwaleed was detained past year along with dozens of other Saudi businessmen, royals and officials in what officials said was part of a campaign to crack down on corruption.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was allegedly killed and dismembered inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

But critics outside Saudi Arabia said the wave of arrests were part of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman's efforts to silence potential opposition to his leadership.

Saudi Arabia has detained 18 Saudi nationals in connection with Khashoggi's death, but Aiban gave no details on their status or whereabouts. "Or he had a peaceful death", Abdullah Khashoggi, 33, said in the CNN interview.

Istanbul's chief prosecutor, who is leading the investigation, announced last week that Mr Khashoggi, who lived in exile in the USA, was strangled immediately after he entered the consulate.

"I really hope that whatever happened wasn't painful for him, or it was quick", he added.

The killing of Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month was likely to come up among representatives of more than 100 countries set to speak during the review of Saudi Arabia on Monday.

More than 40 nations, including the United States, called for a thorough investigation of Khashoggi's death and human rights reforms in Saudi Arabia.

The king's trip was announced with great fanfare and appeared to be an effort to project confidence and reassure ordinary Saudis amid the most intense global criticism of Saudi Arabia since September 11th.
