Khashoggi’s body burned in outdoor furnace - Al Jazeera

The body of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was likely burned in a large outdoor oven at the home of the Saudi consul general in Istanbul, Al Jazeera reported on Sunday.

Turkish authorities monitored the burning of the outdoor furnace at the consulate general’s residence as bags believed to be carrying Khashoggi's body parts were transferred there after he was killed at the nearby consulate last October, according to a documentary aired on Al Jazeera Arabic on Sunday night.

The burning of the Washington Post columnist’s body took place over a period of three days, Turkish officials said. Meat was cooked in the oven after the killing in order to cover up the cremation of the Saudi writer's body, authorities added.

The documentary is based on interviews with security officials, politicians, and some of Khashoggi's Turkish friends.

Last month, a United Nations inquiry concluded that Khashoggi’s killing had been planned and carried out by Saudi officials.
