Who ordered Khashoggi’s killing, Turkey asks

Turkey has urged Saudi Arabia to disclose who ordered the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul and the location of his body.

In a move that has  heightened international pressure on the kingdom to come clean on the case, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan  said on Friday that Turkey had more information than it had shared so far about the killing.

The murder of Mr. Khashoggi, a prominent US-based critic of powerful Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has pitted the world’s top oil exporter and key, strategic partner of the West into a serious crisis.

Saudi Arabia also must reveal the identity of the “local cooperator” whom Riyadh earlier said had taken charge of Mr. Khashoggi’s body from Saudi agents after his killing inside the consulate in Istanbul on October 2, Mr. Erdogan added.
