Khashoggi killing “planned” – claim


Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said there were strong signs the killing of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was planned and he was killed in a “savage way”.

Erdogan, speaking to members of his AK Party in parliament, told Saudi King Salman the Saudi consul in Istanbul was incompetent and he was relieved of his duty and returned to his country.

Erdogan added the 18 people arrested in Saudi Arabia in relation to the killing matched Turkish intelligence on the matter.
