Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday police investigators will continue their search of the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul where Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi disappeared two weeks ago. Turkish officials believe Khashoggi was killed and dismembered inside the consulate. Saudi Arabia previously called the allegation “baseless,” but reports suggest they may acknowledge Khashoggi was killed there. Turkish forensic investigators searched the consulate overnight. A Turkish official said on Tuesday the top Saudi diplomat’s residence in Istanbul would also be searched.
