Khashoggi's last words were 'I can't breath'

Last month, Saudi Arabia said it would seek the death penalty for five out of 11 Saudi nationals indicted in relation to Khashoggi's death.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, went missing after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

This was supposedly after he had been resisting attempts to return him to Saudi Arabia.

But the source claims these findings from the transcript reveal there was a premeditated plot to murder the journalist.

She went on to say she is still living "a shock she can not overcome" despite the confirmation of Khashoggi's death.

"You can't do that", Khashoggi replies, adding that he had people waiting outside for him, apparently referring to his Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz who accompanied him to the entrance of the building.

According to CNN, the transcript also makes clear that the killing of the columnist of the "Washington Post" had been planned, and that the perpetrators would have resulted in multiple phone calls to inform about the state of things.

The transcript described the last painful moments of Khashoggi's life, noting that his screams and gasps could be heard on the tape.

Al-Tubaiqi is the head of forensic medicine at the Saudi interior ministry.

"Put your earphones in, or listen to music like me", he says.

The President's son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, continued to have private conversations with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman following the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, according to The New York Times. The CIA has concluded that the prince, often known by the initials MBS, played a role in the killing.

The office of a U.S. senator who was briefed on the agency's findings by Director Gina Haspel said the account given to CNN was consistent with the briefing, the news network reported.

Mutreb placed numerous calls to an individual in Riyadh who remains unknown.

Meanwhile, pressure is mounting for US President Donald Trump to place blame bin Salman for the killing, which he has so far been reluctant to do, defying his own intelligence service. Erdogan has repeatedly called on Saudi Arabia to hand over suspects in the killing of the dissident journalist.

These recordings, MEE reported earlier, have given Turkey a detailed picture of the various operatives, teams and missions issued from Saudi Arabia.
