Khashoggis body parts found at Saudi consuls residence in Istanbul: Report

Body parts belonging to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi have been found, according to Sky News.

Citing anonymous sources, the UK-based broadcaster reported Oct. 23 that the writer had been "cut up" and his face "disfigured".

According to the report, one source suggested that Khashoggi's remains were discovered in the garden of the Saudi consul general's home.

"I am aware of the reports, they are deeply disturbing ... the location of Mr Khashoggi's body is just one of the questions we need answers to and as such we await the full results of the Turkish investigation," British Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said on Oct. 23.

The report came after Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan said Khashoggi's body had not been found and demanded Saudi officials reveal its whereabouts.

"Why has the body of someone who was officially said to be killed not been found yet?" Erdoğan said in an address to his party's MPs in Ankara on Oct. 23, before accusing the consul general's stance after Khashoggi's disappearance.
