Disturbing footage purportedly showing murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s body parts being carried in bags has emerged.
In the CCTV men can be seen carrying black bags and suitcases into the home of the Saudi consul general in Istanbul, Turkey.
Dressed in normal clothes, the males bring in the luggage – allegedly containing the butchered journalist’s remains – one after another.
The residence is a short distance from the consulate where Mr Khashoggi, a leading critic of Saudi policies, was killed in early October.
Russia and Turkey have a crucial role to play in resolving the conflict in Syria, President Vladimir Putin told his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, a day after their countries agreed to coordinate military steps following the U.S. decision to withdraw its forces.
In a New Year’s message to Erdogan published by the Kremlin on Sunday, Putin said that “Moscow and Ankara are making a decisive contribution to the fight against terrorism in Syria, as well as to the promotion of a political settlement in that country.”
His comment came a day after the Russian and Turkish foreign and defense ministers, as well as the countries’ intelligence chiefs, held talks in Moscow on Syria as they move to fill the void left by President Donald Trump’s decision to order a military pullout.
