Turkish president, Canadian PM discuss Khashoggi case
Turkey's president spoke with the Canadian premier on the phone to discuss the case of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi, presidential sources said on Friday.
Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Justin Trudeau stressed the need to shed light on the killing and the importance of punishing the culprits, said the source, who asked not to be named due to restrictions on speaking to the media.
Khashoggi went missing on Oct. 2, when he was last seen entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.
After weeks of denying any knowledge of his whereabouts, Saudi officials last week admitted that Khashoggi had died inside the consulate building.
Turkish police have been investigating the case, and Erdogan has said 18 people arrested in Saudi Arabia over the killing should be sent to Turkey to face trial.
