Cars that travelled between the consulate and the consul general's residence on the day of Khashoggi's death spent about three hours in the garage under the property before moving on again.

In an op-ed in The Washington Post on Friday, Erdogan says: "we must reveal the identities of the puppet masters behind Khashoggi's killing".

"According to the latest information we have, the reason they cut up the body is it was easier to dissolve it", said Aktay, an advisor to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who was close to Khashoggi.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says it may be a "handful more weeks" before the U.S. has enough evidence to impose sanctions on those responsible for Khashoggi's murder. Iran has denied accusations it is building a nuclear bomb, saying weapons of mass destruction are prohibited under Islam.
