King Salman, Crown prince meet Khashoggi family

Saudi King Salman and Crowne Prince Mohammad Bin Salman (pictured right) met with relatives of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday. The Saudi royals received Sahl Ahmed Khashoggi, Khashoggi's older brother, and Salah Jamal Khashoggi (pictured left), his son, at the Al Yamamah palace in Riyadh to express their condolences, according to Saudi state media.

Earlier, it was reported the remains of Khashoggi, who went missing on October 2 after entering the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul, were found buried in the Saudi consul general's garden in the Turkish city.

Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said he rejects Riyadh's explanation for the journalist's demise, stating that his murder was not the result of a mistake but rather a "planned operation." "The information obtained so far and the evidence found shows that Khashoggi was murdered in a ferocious manner," he told lawmakers in Ankara.
