Turkish police to extend search for Saudi journalist
Turkish police will extend the search for missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to a forest in Istanbul and a farm house in the neighboring province of Yalova.
The police will not limit its investigation to the Saudi consulate building and the consul’s residence in Istanbul," Yeni Şafak reported, citing unidentified security sources.
Khashoggi, a dissident living in self-imposed exile in the United States where he contributed to the Washington Post, vanished after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
According to the newspaper, Turkish forensics experts found "evidence of murder" at the consulate.
"Police teams focused on the ground floor of the residence of al-Otaibi," the report said, stressing that the investigation will be extended to other venues.
"The teams are expected to make excavations in [Istanbul’s] Belgrad Forest and a farm house in Yalova, if needed," Yeni Şafak added.
