The State (Sunday) - - Nation -

Turkey said Satur­day that it had pro­vided the United States and other coun­tries with an au­dio record­ing of the killing of Ja­mal Khashoggi, a Saudi­born dis­si­dent and U.S. res­i­dent who died in the Saudi Con­sulate in Is­tan­bul last month.

Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan of Turkey said his gov­ern­ment had turned over copies of the record­ing to the United States as well as France, Bri­tain, Ger­many and Saudi Ara­bia. He spoke to re­porters be­fore fly­ing to Paris to com­mem­o­rate the end of World War I.

It was the first time Er­do­gan has pub­licly ac­knowl­edged the ex­is­tence of the record­ings.
