Turkey will “detail” the murder of Khashoggi on Tuesday, Erdogan says

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan

Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Monday that he would use a speech to his country’s parliament on Tuesday to reveal all the “details” in the killing of the Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia has admitted that Khashoggi was murdered at its diplomatic compound in the Turkish city earlier this month, but it has blamed a “rogue operation” and denied that its powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered his death.

“There obviously was a tremendous mistake made and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up. That is unacceptable in any government,” Saudi Arabia’s Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said in a Fox News interview Sunday night.

“We are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder,” he said.

“The individuals who did this did this outside the scope of their authority.” Erdogan added.
