Jamal Khashoggi ‘killed within seven minutes’, Turkey’s foreign minister says


Turkey’s foreign minister has said he has listened to a “disgusting” tape that allegedly captures the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Saudi agents at the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul.

Mevlut Cavusoglu told German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung on Tuesday: “I listened to it.

“He was killed within seven minutes. It was a deliberate murder.”

Mr Cavusoglu said he could hear the forensic doctor instructing others to listen to music while he cuts up the body.

He said: “One notices that he’s enjoying it … he likes to cut up people.

“It is disgusting.”
