Turkish officials inspect sewage network around Saudi Arabia consulate
Robotic cameras were inserted into a sewer line on the street, according to a video footage released by state-run Anadolu Agency.
“The manhole cover in the street was opened and robotic cameras were lowered into the sewer. The inspection carried out in the sewer was monitored,” the agency said, adding that the work was undertaken by a private company.
Since Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s disappearance more than three weeks ago, Turkish authorities have carried out multiple searches at the consulate and consul general’s residence in Istanbul.
They were not allowed to search the garden and well of Saudi Arabia’s consulate, but took water samples from the well and are analyzing the water content.
