United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, has called for global experts to be involved in an independent investigation into the murder of prominent Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who went missing after visiting the kingdom's consulate in Turkey's largest city of Istanbul earlier this month. "This needs to be solved now; there is no point in excuses", Erdogan told journalists.

Saudi Arabia's chief prosecutor met his Turkish counterpart for a second time in Istanbul on Tuesday, after what the Turks called an unsatisfactory first meeting on Monday.

Erdoğan's remarks have been interpreted as his most pointed attempt yet to suggest the Saudi crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, cleared the killing of Khashoggi inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

Khashoggi, 59, had entered the diplomatic compound to obtain paperwork for his marriage to his Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Tuesday the probe into Khashoggi's killing must be completed quickly. He should not pave the way for a cover-up of my fiance's murder.

She said she believed the Saudi regime knew where Khashoggi's body was, and called for the "evil criminals and their cowardly political masters" to be held to account.

Riyadh initially insisted that Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, but as pressure grew, Saudi state media changed the story and said Khashoggi died when an argument descended into a brawl.

Trump has hedged his criticism of Saudi leaders over Khashoggi, insisting he does not want to imperil a "tremendous order" of $110 billion of weapons he says will support 500,000 USA jobs - figures that experts say are highly exaggerated.

Saudi Arabia says that 18 suspects in the case will face justice in the kingdom, despite repeated calls from Ankara for them to be extradited for trial in Turkey.

It was reported that not all the evidence gathered by the Turks was handed to Saudi Arabia, but the Saudi leadership will have been informed by other sources on the quality of the intelligence, including the extent to which there was direct contact between the Saudi consul general's office and the crown prince's office during Khashoggi's interrogation inside the consulate.

"Either the Saudi foreign minister or the 18 suspects must explain who the local co-conspirators are", Erdoğan said. Let us know whoever this person is and we will find them.
