Media says Saudi Arabia's top diplomats in Istanbul should be questioned.

    Pro-government papers in Turkey are raising more questions about the investigation into Saudi journalist Jamal Kashoggi's murder in the Saudi consulate, especially why Saudi Arabia's top diplomats in Istanbul are not being questioned.

    Turkish prosecutors suspect the consul general and station chief facilitated the murder, but they are not being questioned along with the 18 suspects that Saudi Arabia detained in connection with the killing.
