Erdogan said the evidence suggests that Khashoggi was "slain in a vicious and violent murder".

A Saudi scholar urged the U.S.to reconsider its support for Saudi Arabia after the murder of a Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

Khashoggi, a Saudi national and columnist for The Washington Post, was killed October 2 inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

On hearing the news earlier this week that Khashoggi was likely dissolved in acid, his fiancee Hatice Cengiz took to Twitter on Thursday to express her dismay.

His body has not been found.

Meanwhile, the reporter's sons have issued desperate pleas to find their father's body so that they can give him a proper burial and receive closure.

He implied that Khashoggi had told the Guardian that the Iran International TV channel was funded by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Some were members of a death outfit known as the Tiger Squad, a team of assassins with close ties to MBS that is used to muzzle dissenters, MEE discovered.

The Chico Fire Department said: 'Firefighters continue to actively engage the fire in order to protect life and property'. An estimated 75,000 homes were also evacuated along the borders of Ventura and Los Angeles counties, according to AP .

Erdogan said: "They also listened to the conversations and they know".

MEE has previously revealed that seven of those sent to kill Khashoggi were members of the crown prince's personal security detail. President Donald Trump has reiterated he does not want to jeopardise money coming into the United States from Saudi Arabia.

Khashoggi went missing on October 2 after entering the consulate to obtain documents for marriage procedures.

Saudi Arabia had insisted for weeks after Mr Khashoggi disappeared that he had walked out of the consulate, before changing its account to say he died in a brawl.

"There's no need to distort this issue, they know for certain that the killer, or the killers, is among these 15 people".

Erdogan said the killer, or killers, would be known to the 18 suspects identified by Turkish authorities - including 15 men who arrived from Saudi Arabia shortly before Khashoggi's death.

Erdogan accused Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor, who was sent to Istanbul last month as part of a joint probe, of employing "delaying tactics".
