Khashoggi killing a 'political murder': Erdogan

Erdogan: Khashoggi killing a political murder Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul was planned by Saudi officials days in advance.

Addressing legislators from his Justice and Development Party (AK Party) on Tuesday, Erdogan detailed Khashoggi's disappearance and murder but stopped short of accusing Saudi royals of the "savage" killing that has caused global outrage.

"On September 28, Khashoggi arrived at the Saudi Arabian consulate for him to sort out his wedding paperwork," Erdogan said during the speech in the Turkish parliament in the capital, Ankara.

"It seems that at that time they [Saudi Arabian officials] started to plan a roadmap for his murder."

He added that some Saudi officials left Turkey and travelled to Saudi Arabia, "indicating they planned the murder".
