Saudis dissolved Khashoggis body in acid after murder: Erdogan advisor

US President Donald Trump and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince and Minister of Defense Mohammed bin Salman meet at the White House in Washington US

The Saudi crown prince accused of having a hand in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi reportedly told White House representatives the Washington Post journalist was a Muslim extremist.

The remains of slain Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi should be located and returned to his family for burial as soon as possible, the USA said Thursday. "We are going to hold accountable not only those who executed the murder but also those who led, involved or were connected to it", Palladino said.

Abdulhamit Gul said that Saudi Arabia's top prosecutor - who spent three days in Istanbul as part of joint Turkish-Saudi efforts to investigate the killing - had failed to answer Turkish investigators' questions about the location of the writer's remains as well as who ordered the killing.

Khashoggi has been missing since October 2 when he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman held a rare meeting with American evangelical Christians as the conservative kingdom seeks to open up more to the world and fix an image of religious intolerance.

Anonymous Saudi officials have pushed a theory that Jamal Khashoggi's body was rolled up in some kind of fabric and given to a Turkish coconspirator. The Saudi attorney general then acknowledged that Khashoggi was killed in a premeditated murder. Turkish state news agency Anadolu reported that he had boarded a plane back to Saudi Arabia on Wednesday, having met with the Istanbul chief prosecutor twice.

Saudi Arabia now says Khashoggi murder 'premeditated'
Turkish officials have said that a Saudi team of 15 men tortured, killed and dismembered the writer and in a premeditated act. Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said on Saturday that the Arab world is dealing two versions of the Middle East.

Khashoggi's family rejected the characterization in a statement to the newspaper. He denied such claims repeatedly over the past several years.

"We're going to find the fact pattern", he said.

The body of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was "dissolved" after he was murdered and dismembered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul a month ago, an advisor to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday. A critic of the Saudi royal family, Khashoggi had been living in exile in the United States.

On Wednesday Turkey said he was strangled immediately after entering the consulate and his body dismembered "in accordance with plans made in advance".

Saudi Arabia has changed its account of what happened to Khashoggi.

After Saudi Arabia admitted that Khashoggi was killed in its Istanbul consulate, five high-ranking officials were dismissed, including bin Salman's media chief and the deputy head of the Saudi intelligence service. The Turks added that the Saudi prosecutor also said no statement had been made by Saudi authorities about the existence of the purported local cooperator.
