Turkish police search villas in Khashoggi investigation

Turkey: Police search Yalova villa in Khashoggi murder case

Khashoggi, a Saudi national, was murdered on October 2 while visiting the Saudi embassy in Istanbul.

The search involving crime scene investigators and sniffer dogs was taking place in the town of Termal, in Yalova province, Anadolu Agency said.

Just this week, Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel signalled a wiretapped phone call between the Crown Prince and his brother was in existence and may show the prince ordered his murder, journalist Abdulkadir Selvi said, citing anonymous sources.

Activists and journalists who today protested against Mohammed's visit in the Tunisian capital displayed a banner of the Crown Prince holding a chainsaw - a reference to Khashoggi's dismemberment, Bloomberg News reported.

According to pro-government newspaper Yeni Safak, investigators suspect that Khashoggi's remains are buried there.

Khashoggi's killing has strained Saudi Arabia's ties with the West and battered the image overseas of its de facto leader, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. The official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said biological evidence discovered in the diplomatic mission garden supports the theory that Khashoggi's body was disposed of close to where he was killed and dismembered.

Turkish police have already searched the consulate and consul general's residence during the investigation they have been carrying out on the case.

A royal source has claimed there's a growing rift between the two couples, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and Prince William and Kate Middleton .

Turkey has maintained pressure on Saudi Arabia over the killing of the us -based columnist for The Washington Post.

He has been arrested by Saudi authorities along with other members of the hit squad.

Saudi prosecutors say that the agents had orders only to persuade or force Khashoggi to return to Saudi Arabia and that they killed the journalist during a struggle in the consulate.

Yalova Governor Muammer Erol said in a written statement that the Istanbul Chief Prosecutor's Office shall speak about the essence and the results of the search.

There is also no confirmation of who ordered the killing.

Meanwhile, Prince Mohammed was due to arrive in Egypt on Monday for a two-day visit, state news agency MENA reported, part of his first trip overseas since Khashoggi's murder.
