The remains of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi were discovered
in the garden of the Saudi consul's residence in Istanbul, according to
an unconfirmed Sky News report.

The report also claims that the writer's face had been cut and
disfigured.If true, this would contradict the statements given by the
Saudi foreign minister that Khashoggi died during a "fist-fight" in the

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and local authorities have
accused Saudi Arabia of the murder, claiming that the journalist's body
was dismembered and removed from the consulate. Erdogan demanded that
the Saudi government reveal the full story of Khashoggi's murder and
disclose the location of the his remains.

Turkish authorities have also claimed that they possess an audio
recording of Khashoggi's death, proving he was beaten and tortured. The
authorities said that they believe the death was planned in advance and
conducted by a "15-man hit squad."

According to the Saudi government, King Salman and Crown Prince Mohammed
bin Salman were completely unaware of the murder, referring to it as a
"rogue operation."

18 people have been arrested in the incident, three who work in the
consulate and 15 others who Turkish authorities claim flew into the
country for the specific purposes of the murder.
