TEHRAN (Press Shia) – CIA Director Gina Haspel has traveled to Turkey to work on the investigation into the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, sources familiar with the matter said.
Haspel was traveling to Turkey on Monday to help investigate the death of Khashoggi, the sources told Reuters, as security agencies examined what role Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman may have played in the case.
Khashoggi, who was living in Washington, disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2 to get documents for his forthcoming marriage.
Earlier on Monday, US President Donald Trump said he was still not satisfied with what he had heard from Saudi Arabia about the killing.
Saudi Arabia said on Saturday that Khashoggi, 59, was killed in a fight in the consulate. A Saudi official later said that 15 Saudi nationals sent to Turkey to confront Khashoggi had threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and then killed him in a chokehold when he resisted.
