Saudi Arabian journalist identified as Jamal Khashoggi, who went into disappearance eight days ago has been confirmed dead, after he entered the Saudi consolate in Istanbul.
According to reports from the New York times, he was killed and dismembered with a bone saw by a team of Saudi agents at the consolate.
It said a Turkish official compared the episode to the film Pulp Fiction.
Sources reported Khashoggi’s body was brought out of the consolate and hidden in a black minivan.
Meanwhile, pro-Turkish government private broadcaster Kanal 24 showed the last images of the Saudi journalist as he entered the consolate, as well as images of a black van that left shortly thereafter, maintaining that Khashoggi’s body was inside the van.
It said the van traveled about two kilometres and then parked in a garage at the Saudi consul’s residence.
The Saudi government maintains that Turkey’s accusations are “baseless”.
