Turkey's chief prosecutor on Wednesday said Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was strangled immediately after he entered Saudi consulate in general in Istanbul.

The statement from Irfan Fidan, the chief Istanbul prosecutor, is the first official confirmation from Turkey that the journalist's body was cut to pieces after he was killed in a premeditated operation on October 2. It said that the Saudi authorities did not release any statement regarding a local collaborator in the Khashoggi murder, Yenisafak newspaper reported.

USA officials, including President Donald Trump, have said the country will face consequences over the killing of Khashoggi.

Riyadh at first denied any knowledge of, or role in, his disappearance four weeks ago, but Mojeb has contradicted those statements, saying the killing of Khashoggi, a critic of de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was premeditated.

But after a warm reception from Saudi officials inside the consulate, his concerns dissipated and he entered the consulate on October 2 without hesitation, Cengiz said, and was never seen again.

An unnamed Turkish official told Agence France-Presse on Wednesday that Saudi officials appeared unwilling to share intelligence over the investigation.

"The Saudi officials seemed primarily interested in finding out what evidence the Turkish authorities had against the perpetrators".

Fidan demanded that his Saudi counterpart detail the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body.

Boris Johnson accepted a £14,000 all-expenses-paid trip from the Saudi Arabian regime from shortly before journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan has urged Riyadh to disclose who ordered the murder and prosecutors have prepared an extradition request for 18 suspects from Saudi Arabia.

Michelle Bachelet said she welcomed steps taken by the Turkish and Saudi government to probe his death, but given Saudi Arabia's apparent involvement in the slaying, "the bar must be set very high".

Mattis told reporters traveling with him that Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir "had no reservations at all" about the need for the kingdom to be transparent about the death of the Washington Post columnist at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.

Under mounting worldwide pressure, Saudi Arabia has changed its narrative about Khashoggi's death several times.
