Daily Record - - NEWS -

A HOR­RIFIC record­ing proves miss­ing jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi was tor­tured, killed and chopped up in Saudi Ara­bia’s Is­tan­bul con­sulate, it has been claimed.

Turk­ish of­fi­cials say they have au­dio and video ev­i­dence that the Wash­ing­ton Post colum­nist fell vic­tim to a hit squad while vis­it­ing on Oc­to­ber 2 to pick up a doc­u­ment for his wed­ding.

A source said: “You can hear his voice and the voices of men speak­ing Ara­bic.

“You can hear how he was in­ter­ro­gated, tor­tured and mur­dered.”

The Wash­ing­ton Post said the record­ing pro­vides “per­sua­sive and grue­some ev­i­dence” that its Saudi colum­nist was mur­dered.

Pres­sure is mount­ing on Saudi Ara­bia to ex­plain what hap­pened to the critic of Crown Prince Mo­hammed bin Sal­man’s regime.

The Saudis in­sist he left the con­sulate that af­ter­noon but the jour­nal­ist’s fi­ancee, Hat­ice Cen­giz, who was wait­ing out­side, says she did not see him re-emerge.
