Khashoggi's fiancée shocked over new death details
ANKARA – Anadolu Agency
The fiancée of slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has expressed shock and sadness upon hearing the latest reports on his killing.
"I'm unable to express my sorrow to learn about [the] dissolving [of] your body Jamal! They killed you and chopped up your body, depriving me and your family of conducting your funeral prayer and burying you in Madinah as [you] wished,” said Hatice Cengiz in a post on her Twitter account on Nov. 8.
"Are these killers and those behind it human beings? Oh my God!"
Khashoggi, a Saudi national and columnist for The Washington Post, was killed on Oct. 2 after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
Once inside, he was immediately strangled and then dismembered, according to the Istanbul Prosecutor’s office.
After announcing he was killed, Saudi Arabia has yet to reveal the location of Khashoggi’s body.
Turkish police found traces of hydrofluoric acid and other chemicals inside a well at the Saudi consul general’s home in Istanbul and think that Khashoggi’s dismembered body was dissolved in acid in one of the rooms of the residence, according to an Al Jazeera report published on Nov. 8.
