  • Jamal Khashoggi vanished following a visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2

Turkish media released police CCTV surveillance videos said to be of a Saudi "assassination squad".

Turkey has focused much of its investigation on 15 Saudi nationals who arrived in Istanbul on two flights the same day as Khashoggi was at the consulate.

But Turkish officials have concluded that whatever the intent of the operation, Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate.

Khashoggi, 59, was reportedly killed within two hours of arriving at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

Turkish newspaper Sabah said on Wednesday it had identified a 15-member intelligence team it said was involved in the disappearance of prominent Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Nour, along with a number of other activists, including Nobel Peace Prize laureate Yemeni Tawakkol Karman, demonstrated outside the Saudi consulate on Monday holding pictures of Khashoggi.

Brunson, a pastor for the last 20 years at the Evangelical Resurrection Church in western Turkey's Izmir, was arrested on alleged links to the PKK terrorist group and the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ), who orchestrated an attempted coup on July 15, 2016; however, he was later put on house arrest.

Khashoggi left Saudi Arabia past year saying he feared retribution for his criticism of Riyadh over the Yemen war and its crackdown on dissent, and since then wrote columns for the Washington Post.

Kaye spoke to The Associated Press moments after he and two colleagues called for an worldwide, independent investigation into the disappearance of Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

They then dismembered Khashoggi's body with a "bone saw" that was brought over from Saudi Arabia for that objective.

The Washington Post said it has repeatedly asked the Saudi and Turkish governments for information about Khashoggi's whereabouts and has not received any satisfactory answers. Twelve of them arrived early on Tuesday, based on photos captured at passport control which it published. Erdoğan had previously said that Saudi officials "cannot escape responsibility by simply saying that he left".

The report also said that the Saudis stayed at the Wyndham and Movenpick hotels in Istanbul, in the same neighbourhood as the Saudi consulate.

The Spectator reported claims that Mr Khashoggi had been offered a role as an adviser if he returned to Saudi Arabia but had declined because of "moral and religious" principles.

The men are said to have then left for the private jet enclosure Istanbul's Ataturk airport. Shortly after midday it said several cars entered the consulate building.

News channel 24 aired the video, suggesting that Khashoggi was inside of the black Mercedes Vito, which resembled one parked outside of the consulate when the writer walked in on October 2. According to CNN's Manu Raju, Corker said he was told that no such video exists, because the security feed only provides a live feed, with no recordings made.

US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he planned to contact Saudi authorities about the case. This could lead to sanctions against Saudi Arabia within 120 days. "We plan to take some actions ourselves on this, something we can do without passing legislation".
