Ottawa Sun - - NEWS -

ANKARA, Turkey — Of­fi­cials from Saudi Ara­bia, the United States, Ger­many, France and Bri­tain have lis­tened to au­dio record­ings re­lated to the killing of jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi at the Saudi con­sulate in Is­tan­bul, Turkey’s pres­i­dent said Satur­day, in the first pub­lic ac­knowl­edg­ment of the ex­is­tence of tapes of the slay­ing.

Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan also told re­porters that Saudi Ara­bia had to “act fairly” and dis­close those re­spon­si­ble for the Oct. 2 killing of The Washington Post jour­nal­ist to rid it­self of “sus­pi­cion.”

“We gave them the tapes. We gave them to Saudi Ara­bia, to Amer­ica, to the Ger­mans, the French, to the Bri­tish, to all of them,” Er­do­gan said.
