The New York Post: Khashoggi was strangled when he entered Saudi consulate, Turkish prosecutor says

U.S.-based Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was strangled the minute he stepped inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, and his body was then hacked to bits and secretly disposed of, a top Turkish prosecutor said Wednesday.

A statement from chief Istanbul prosecutor Irfan Fidan’s office also said that talks with Saudi chief prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb had yielded no “concrete results” despite “good-willed efforts” by Turkey to uncover the truth about his brutal killing.

The statement was the first public confirmation by a Turkish official that Khashoggi was strangled and dismembered after he entered the Saudi consulate on Oct. 2 to collect paperwork needed to marry his Turkish fiancee.
