Top Saudi prosecutor visits courthouse in Istanbul

Saudi Arabia’s attorney general on Monday arrived at the courthouse in Istanbul over killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Saud al-Mujeb, Saudi’s top prosecutor, came to Istanbul in early hours of Monday to meet Istanbul’s Chief Public Prosecutor Irfan Fidan.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, had gone missing since entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.

After weeks of denying any knowledge of his whereabouts, Saudi officials last week admitted that Khashoggi had died inside the consulate building.

Turkish police have been investigating the case, and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said 18 people arrested in Saudi Arabia over the killing should be sent to Turkey to face trial.
