Saudi, Turkish Investigators Say Khashoggi Killing Was Planned
A team of Saudi and Turkish investigators said the people who killed Jamal Khashoggi likely planned the murder in advance. The top government lawyer in Saudi Arabia, Saud al-Mojeb, said in a statement that the team used information from Turkish officials to conclude that the killing had been planned.
Al-Mojeb did not say whether Saudi investigators had reached the same conclusion. However, al-Mojeb's statement seemed to support earlier claims from Turkish officials.
The statement is another change in Saudi Arabia's story about what happened to Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. He was killed on October 2 inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
After Khashoggi first disappeared, Saudi Arabian officials claimed Khashoggi had simply walked out of the consulate. Later, Saudi officials said he had been accidentally killed during a "fistfight."
Governments around the world, however, did not believe those claims. International leaders and groups continue to call on the Saudi government to be truthful about what happened to Khashoggi.
Turkish officials especially are pushing the Saudi government to identify who ordered the killing. They increased pressure by releasing information and pictures from security cameras. Turkey's actions are making some wonder whether Prince Mohammed was involved in the killing, even though he publicly denounced it at an international meeting on Wednesday.
Pressure from Turkey
Turkey has continued to demand more answers from Saudi Arabia. The two countries are competitors in the region and also have economic ties.
Mevlut Cavusoglu is Turkey's foreign minister. He told reporters on Thursday that he wanted to know where Khashoggi's body is.
"There is a crime here, but there is also a humanitarian situation," Cavusoglu said. "The family wants to know and they want to perform their last duty." In other words, the family hopes to bury Khashoggi's body.
Turkish media have published conflicting reports about whether investigators had permission to search the garden in the Saudi Consulate. Some have wondered if the body was put in a well there.
Turkish officials also told the Associated Press that investigators were looking for Khashoggi's remains in a nearby forest and in a city about two hours away from Istanbul.

沙特和土耳其的一个调查小组表示，杀害贾马尔·卡舒吉(Jamal Khashoggi)的人很可能是事先计划好的 。沙特高级政府律师沙特·莫吉布(Saud al-Mojeb)在一份声明中表示，调查小组根据土耳其官员提供的信息得出结论，认为这起谋杀是“有预谋的” 。
莫吉布没有透露沙特调查人员是否得出了同样的结论 。然而，莫吉布的声明似乎支持了土耳其官员早前的说法 。
该声明是沙特方面对于卡舒吉被杀报道的又一次“改口”，卡舒吉是一名记者，也是沙特王储穆罕默德·本·萨勒曼的批评者 。他于10月2日在沙特驻伊斯坦布尔领事馆内遇害 。
卡舒吉刚失踪时，沙特官员声称，卡舒吉走出了领事馆 。随后，沙特官员表示，卡舒吉在一场“斗殴”中意外身亡 。
然而，世界各国政府并不相信这些说法 。国际领导人和多方组织继续呼吁沙特政府公开卡舒吉遇害的真相 。
土耳其官员特别敦促沙特政府查明是谁下令杀害这名男子 。他们发布了监控拍下的信息和图像，以此施加压力 。土耳其的举动让人不禁生疑，沙特王储萨勒曼是否参与了这起谋杀，尽管他在周三的一次国际会议上公开谴责了此事 。
土耳其继续要求沙特方面作出更多解释 。这两个中东国家既是竞争对手，也有经济联系 。
恰武什奥卢（Mevlut Cavusoglu）是土耳其外交部长 。周四，他告诉记者，他想知道卡舒吉的尸体现在何处 。
他说:“虽然这是一起犯罪行为，但也存在人道主义问题 。”“卡舒吉的家人想知道遗体的下落，他们想送他最后一程 。”换句话说，他的家人希望能埋葬卡舒吉的遗体 。
关于调查人员是否获准搜查沙特领事馆的花园，土耳其媒体发表的报道相互矛盾 。一些人怀疑尸体是否被丢弃在领事馆的井内 。
