Turkish media claims that Khashoggi's body had been 'cut into three parts' by the Saudi forensic expert who was photographed arriving in Istanbul the day of the murder as part of a 15-strong 'hit squad'.

Saudi prosecutors admitted yesterday that Turkish evidence indicates that the killing was premeditated, despite the Saudi state previously claiming that Khashoggi had died in a botched interrogation.



The dissident Saudi writer, 59, disappeared on October 2, after entering his home country's consulate in Istanbul to obtain papers to allow him to marry his Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz.

Ms Cengiz demanded punishment for on Friday for all those involved in the 'savagery' of Khashoggi's murder.

'I demand that all those involved in this savagery from the highest to the lowest levels are punished and brought to justice,' she told the Haber Turk television station.

President Erdogan also revealed that Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor will arrive in Turkey on Sunday as part of the investigation into the murder of the 59-year-old, where he will meet Turkish prosecutors
