Jamal Khashoggi: Turkish police search Saudi consul's residence in Istanbul



Turkish investigators have entered the residence of the Saudi consul in Istanbul to gather more evidence about the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi.

 
Turkish officials suspect the Saudi journalist was killed during a visit to the nearby consulate on 2 October.

The consul, Mohammed al-Otaibi, flew back to Riyadh on Tuesday. He denies knowing what happened to Mr Khashoggi.


However, a Turkish newspaper says Mr Otaibi can be heard in purported audio recordings of Mr Khashoggi's death.


Yeni Safak, which is close to the government, quotes him as telling alleged Saudi agents sent to Istanbul: "Do this outside. You're going to get me in trouble."
Gruesome details said to be of Mr Khashoggi's last moments have emerged in a range of media outlets.
