A Turkish newspaper has published new details of a recording which reportedly captured the final moments of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The prominent government critic was killed in Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul last October.
The pro-government Sabah newspaper says the transcript is from a recording taken inside and later obtained by Turkish intelligence.
It includes information such as the journalist’s alleged last words.
Khashoggi wrote a column for the Washington Post newspaper and was based in the US before his disappearance.
He was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018 to obtain papers he needed to marry his Turkish fiancée.
