Turkey searches Saudi consul general’s residence

Investigators were given permission to search for Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s body weeks after the murder.

Jamal Khashoggi’s body has still not been found more than three weeks after he was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, but the investigation is ongoing.

Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump has piled on the pressure on Saudi Arabia, calling it the worst cover-up in the history of cover-ups and saying ultimate responsibility could lie with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
