Jamal Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and then his body was dismembered, the office of city’s chief prosecutor said on Wednesday, in the first official comment in a case that has caused a global outrage.

“In accordance with plans made in advance, the victim, Jamal Khashoggi, was choked to death immediately after entering the Consulate General of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul on October 2, 2018, for marriage formalities,” the statement said.

“The victim’s body was dismembered and destroyed following his death by suffocation – again, in line with advance plans,” it added.

In a statement on Wednesday, the prosecutor’s office described three days of meetings with Saud Al-Mujab, Saudi public prosecutor, as producing “no concrete results”.
