Khashoggi’s body may have been dissolved in acid
The body of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi was “dissolved” after his murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, an adviser to the Turkish president has said.
The remarks represented the first official Turkish statement about what allegedly happened to his body. Turkish investigators have been trying to determine whether his remains could have been dissolved in acid at the nearby consul general’s house.
An unnamed official also told the Washington Post “biological evidence” in the consulate’s garden suggested “Khashoggi’s body was not in need of burying”.
