Jamal Khashoggi was strangled shortly after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, and his body was dismembered afterward, a Turkish prosecutor said Wednesday.
It said discussions with Saudi chief prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb yielded no "concrete results" despite Turkey's "good intentions to uncover the truth".
The announcement, which came just hours after the Saudi delegation had left Turkey, was the first public statement by a Turkish official that Khashoggi was strangled and mutilated after he entered the Saudi Consulate on October 2.
"The victim Jamal Khashoggi's body was dismembered and destroyed following his death by suffocation again, in line with the advance plans", the two-page statement read.
"He has denounced the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and continues to believe that the United Kingdom must hold Saudi Arabia to account for this barbaric act", the source added.
