Report: Body Parts Of Murdered Journalist Kashoggi Found In Yard Of Saudi Consul’s Istanbul Home

Body parts of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi allegedly were found in the garden of the Saudi consul’s home in Istanbul, a development that is liable to increase international pressure on Riyadh. Previous reports had suggested the critic of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman was dismembered by a Saudi hit squad upon entering the mission on October 2. The apparent revelation came just hours after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan dismissed attempts by the conservative Muslim nation to blame Khashoggi’s “savage” killing on rogue officials, adding that “intelligence and security institutions have evidence showing the murder was planned.” Amid a growing public outcry, Saudi Arabia sacked top royal aide Saud al-Qahtani, who is accused of demanding via a Skype call that operatives at the consulate “bring me the head of the dog.” The House of Saud initially denied any responsibility before two weeks later claiming that Khashoggi was killed in a fight following a botched interrogation. The kingdom’s foreign minister has called the ordeal a “huge and grave mistake” while insisting that bin Salman played no role in and was not even aware of the plot.
