The order to kill Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi came from the highest level of the Saudi government, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday, adding that the global community had the responsibility to "reveal the puppet masters" behind the slaying.

"We know that the perpetrators are among the 18 suspects detained in Saudi Arabia".

"Who gave the order to kill this kind soul?"

A Turkish official says he believes Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's body was dissolved in acid or other chemicals after it was mutilated at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

The news comes amid growing tensions between the Turkish government and the leadership in Saudi Arabia following last month's death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Yasin Aktay, a ruling party adviser to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, told The Associated Press on Friday that "there can be no other formula" to explain why Khashoggi's remains have not been found a month after he was killed. According to the latest information, the reason why they broke up the body is to make it dissolve more easily.

Turkey's chief prosecutor said this week that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the consulate and also confirmed the body was dismembered.

Aktay, who also a friend of the also a friend of the slain Washington Post columnist, said this on Friday, November 2.

"Today I am inviting the global community to take serious and practical steps to reveal the truth and to prosecute those involved in a court of law".

He was a Washington Post contributor living in self-imposed exile in the United States since 2017, and had voiced some mild criticism of Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MbS).

"The Trump administration has taken a position that is devoid of moral foundation", she wrote. "Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad, and it has been established that his murder was premeditated".

US President Donald Trump has said Saudi authorities staged the "worst cover-up ever" but has also made more conciliatory remarks that highlight Riyadh's role as a US ally against Iran and Islamist militants, as well as a purchaser of US arms.

The "only logical conclusion" was that those who had killed the Saudi journalist in Istanbul had destroyed his body "to leave no trace behind", he said.

Activists from the London-based NGO temporarily erected a mock street sign in front of the diplomatic compound, in the British capital's wealthy Mayfair district, in a symbolic gesture honoring Jamal Khashoggi.

Netanyahu said that for the stability of the region, it is vital that Saudi Arabia remains stable.

Khashoggi, a former Saudi government advisor, had written several opinion pieces critical of the Saudi government and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in the Washington Post.

"The violent murder of a prominent journalist and commentator on foreign soil is a grave violation of human rights and a disturbing escalation of the crackdown on dissent in Saudi Arabia, whose government in recent years has jailed numerous writers, journalists, human rights advocates, and lawyers in a sweeping assault on free expression and association", the group said Friday in an open letter.
