Turkey mulls over UN probe into Saudi journalist killing

Ankara  :   Turkey is working with other countries to carry the investigation into the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi to the UN, Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said on Monday.

"Turkey is continuing its comprehensive investigation into the murder. We are cooperating with other countries in order to take the issue to the UN," Cavusoglu said at a news conference during his visit to Tunis.

The minister urged Riyadh to share the results of its own investigation into the murder with Ankara and the international community, Xinhua news agency reported.

"Saudi Arabia still has not told us where the journalist's body is," Cavusoglu said.

Khashoggi went missing after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2. After weeks of denials, the Saudi authorities admitted that the journalist had been killed and dismembered inside the diplomatic mission.
