Khashoggi’s body may have been dis­solved in acid

The Guardian Weekly - - Global report -

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”.
