Body parts belonging to murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been found, according to Sky sources.
Sources Sky News reports that the Arabian journalist had been “cut up” and his face “disfigured”.
One source also suggested the journalist’s remains were discovered in the garden of the Saudi consul general’s home.
Africa News 24 reports that the development comes after Turkey President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Khashoggi’s body had not been found and demanded Saudi officials reveal its whereabouts.
The apparent discovery of Khashoggi’s body parts and Erdogan’s version of events based on what he described as “new evidence and information” – both contradict Saudi Arabia’s explanation for his death.
Reports had emerged earlier that Khashoggi died in a “fist fight” at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.
Before his death, Khashoggi was a known critic of the Saudi government and the country’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman.
