ANKARA: The murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside Riyadh’s Istanbul consulate was planned in a “savage manner”, Turkey’s ruling party spokesman said on Monday.

Saudi Arabia admits Khashoggi died in consulate, fires two senior officials

“This was planned in an extremely savage manner, and we are faced with a situation where there has been a lot of effort to whitewash this,” Justice and Development Party (AKP) spokesman Omer Celik told reporters in Ankara. Riyadh said on Saturday that Khashoggi died during a “brawl” inside the consulate after a visit on October 2 to get documents.
