Turkish media: Video shows team of alleged Saudi assassins

• By AYSE WIETING, SUZAN FRASER and JON GAMBRELL

Turkish media, which released surveillance camera video of the men on Wednesday, said they were members of an elite Saudi "assassination squad," sent to kill Khashoggi, a Saudi critic.

Saudi Arabia remained silent at the accusation as the images were seen around the world, raising pressure on the kingdom to explain what happened to the writer, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Adding to the macabre mystery, a Turkish official told The Associated Press that one member of the team was an "autopsy expert."

Saudi Arabia has dismissed allegations it played a role in Khashoggi's disappearance as "baseless," but it has offered no evidence to support its contention he left the consulate unharmed last week and vanished into Istanbul while his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, waited outside.
