President Erdogan reiterated his belief on Friday that he was sure that King Salman of Saudi Arabia was not in any way involved, so his comments represented a pointed signal that he holds the crown prince responsible for Jamal Khashoggi’s death
#IEWorld | Erdogan said it was clear the murder was planned and that the order came from the top level of Saudi authorities but that he could not think such a thing of King Salman, for whom he has 'limitless respect'
Mr Erdogan said a team of 15 Saudis entered consulate on 2 October, the day of #Khashoggi killing. He said cameras at the consulate were removed. But other footage showed that Mr Khashoggi did not leave the consulate. He said he told King Salman the Saudi consul was incompetent
President Erdogan of Turkey writes an op-ed: "Saudi Arabia still has many questions to answer about Jamal Khashoggi’s killing." Erdogan notes that King Salman presumably didn't order the murder, without meaning his son MBS (Mr. Bone Saw).
Erdogan calls for wider international participation in Khashoggi investigation. Refutes the Saudi version. Makes clear it was all carefully planned. Absolves King Salman, and thus indirectly points at MBS.
UPDATE: Turkish investigators are expected to search the Saudi consulate in Istanbul Monday for the first time since journalist Jamal#Khashoggi disappeared, after President Erdogan and King Salman discussed the case by phone
