Saudi Arabia admits journalist was killed at consulate, detains 18 suspects

Officials told Reuters in Turkey on Thursday that Khashoggi's remains may have been dumped in Belgrad Forest, adjacent to Istanbul, and at a rural location near the city of Yalova, 90 kilometres south of Istanbul.

"Second, there is an urgent need to clarify what happened - we are far from this having been cleared up and those responsible held to account".

The Saudi government had claimed they had no information about the fate of Jamal Khashoggi. The public prosecutor said 18 people, all Saudi nationals, have been detained in connection to the probe.

Turkey has widened its investigation into the disappearance of journalist Jamal Khashoggi after his visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, searching a forest in the city.

He told the news program that Saudi-US ties would "weather" the Khashoggi case.

Khashoggi, a prominent journalist and royal court insider for decades in Saudi Arabia, had written columns critical of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the kingdom's direction while living in self-imposed exile in the U.S. He went to the Saudi consulate to obtain paperwork for his upcoming marriage. "We will continue to closely follow the global investigations into this tragic incident and advocate for justice that is timely, transparent and in accordance with all due process", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said.
