Turkish police discover evidence of Khashoggi Murder- Report

Tehran, Turkish police found evidence during a probe in the Istanbul-based Saudi Consulate that Saudi reporter Jamal Khashoggi had been murdered, the Turkish television network NTV reported on Tuesday.

Ankara has earlier claimed that Khashoggi could've been arrested or even killed while inside the diplomatic mission, which Riyadh has vehemently denied, according to Sputnik.

A previous inspection, conducted together by Saudi and Turkish investigators, reportedly obtained some evidence relevant to the Khashoggi case proving that the journalist had never left the building.

A number of countries have voiced concerns over the case; US President Trump threatened to impose 'severe punishment' on Saudi Arabia if it turns out that Riyadh is behind the suspected killing.
