Authorities believe that one of the Saudi agents allegedly involved in the murder at the kingdom's Istanbul consulate, Mansour Othman Abahussain, called the villa's owner a day before the killing, the Istanbul chief prosecutor's office said. The prosecutor added that this information was the reason given to search the building.

Turkish forensic officers investigate a site at a villa in Yalova, Turkey.

Saudi prosecutors maintain that the 15-man team sent to Istanbul exceeded its authority when the lead negotiator in the team chose to kill Khashoggi for refusing orders to return.

MEE understands that dogs and drones are being used in the search, and the next-door villa is now being probed.

Saudi public prosecutor has demanded death penalty against five of the suspects implicated in the murder of Khashoggi.

The investigation has focused attention on the policies of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler, who has imprisoned rivals, clerics and independent political activists at home.

A Tunisian journalists' union hung a large banner from its headquarters showing the prince holding a chainsaw - a reference to the dismemberment of Khashoggi's corpse. A joint Turkish-Saudi investigation into Khashoggi's fate has made little progress so far.

Turkey has maintained pressure on Saudi Arabia over the October 2 killing of the US-based columnist for The Washington Post who was a critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Saudi Arabia initially said Khashoggi had walked out of the consulate before shifting its account of what happened amid Turkish intelligence leaks. The whereabouts of his body are still unknown.

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.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has demanded greater cooperation from Saudi authorities in the case, alleging the killing had been orchestrated by the "highest levels" of Saudi government.
