ANKARA - The or­der to mur­der Saudi jour­nal­ist and regime critic Ja­mal Khashoggi came from ‘the high­est lev­els’ of the Riyadh govern­ment, Turkey' s Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan said on Fri­day in a Wash­ing­ton Post op- ed."

We know that the per­pe­tra­tors are among the 18 sus­pects de­tained in Saudi Ara­bia. We also know that those in­di­vid­u­als came to carry out their or­ders: ‘Kill Khashoggi and leave,’ he wrote. "Fi­nally, we know that the or­der to kill Khashoggi came from the high­est lev­els of the Saudi govern­ment." Er­do­gan added that he did ‘not be­lieve for a sec­ond’ that Saudi's King Sal­man had or­dered the hit on Khashoggi, who was mur­dered at the king­dom's con­sulate in Is­tan­bul on Oc­to­ber 2.
