Missing Saudi journalist: Turkey identifies 8 suspects

Agency News

Ankara, Oct 11: Turkey has identified eight out of 15 suspects linked to the missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

A total of 15 Saudis entered the consulate in Istanbul while Khashoggi was inside, Xinhua reported, quoting state-run Anadolu Agency on Wednesday.

The Turkish police has released the detailed information of the eight Saudi suspects, including several officials.

The Saudi Arabian journalist has been missing since October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate building to get documents for his re-marriage to a Turkish woman.

Unconfirmed reports said Khashoggi was likely killed inside the compound, which was denied by Saudi officials as 'baseless.'

A day earlier, Saudi Arabia invited Turkish experts and officials to visit the consulate after Turkey demanded to search the building. (UNI)
