Erdogan: people close to Saudi crown prince behind Khashoggi's murder

Turkey's President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that some persons close to Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud assumed an active role in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"We understand from the voice recordings that those closest to the crown prince had an active role in Khashoggi's killing," Erdogan said at a conference in Istanbul.

Speaking about the resolution, Erdogan said there would be more developments about the issue as "Turkey submitted all the information to Americans."

The Turkish leader also stressed that his country would continue to chase the issue until the end to reveal the naked truth behind the murder, Xinhua reported.

The U.S. Senate recently approved a resolution holding Saudi Crown Prince responsible for the murder of Khashoggi.

According to the Istanbul prosecutor, Khashoggi was strangled to death after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and his body was then dismembered and destroyed.
