Breaking: Turkish Police find evidence Khashoggi was killed inside Saudi Consulate – AP

A Turkish official told AP that police have found evidence inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul which confirms that journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed there.
The “high level official” spoke to the AP on the condition of anonymity, but said that police had found “certain evidence”that Khashoggi had died in the building. The official did not provide any more details about the evidence uncovered by police.

Reports in US media on Monday evening suggested that Riyadh might be preparing to admit that Khashoggi was killed as part of an unauthorized interrogation gone wrong.
Khashoggi was last seen entering the consulate on October 2. Turkey has accused Saudi Arabia of murdering the journalist, but Riyadh has denied involvement.

During a visit to Riyadh on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo thanked the Saudi king for committing to a “transparent” investigation of the disappearance.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said that some “toxic materials” in the consulate were “painted over”. Also video footage of cleaners with mops and buckets entering the building before investigators could search it has prompted speculation of a coverup.

  1. No mention of his uncle Adnan Khashoggi, billionaire arms dealer involved Iran-Contra Affair, he is a US/Israeli intel asset like his uncle, Pompeo is there to clean up the saudi mess, Turkish intel had consulate bugged, they know, great job to VT staff, keep up telling truth to anyone who will listen,

  2. 3 autocrats walk into an embassy, one guy kills a journalist, the next one turns him in, and the next covers it up.

    So the difference now is, instead of killing journalists with bad brakes, or suicide, they just chop em up right there on the embassy floor and call their buddies to clean it up. We are not heading in the right direction folks.
    But here is your chance to watch the American President sanction the murder of a journalist in an embassy !
    For what ?… a little bit of money ? You betcha.

  3. I saw this report in the morning (Msk time). If they “accidently” killed him – where is the body? Why wasn’t ambulance called? Why washing, repainting, rebuilding the room? Or in Saudi best traditions ordinary interrogation not differs from middle-age inquisition? They are liars. And stupid idiots. To kill a person in the consulate and hide it – nonsense. If they wanted so much to “punish” him – an “accident” in the street in the best Italian mafia traditions, made by any Turkish “hobo” in need? – would be more preferable.
