ISTANBUL - Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Sunday (Feb 3) accused the United States of maintaining a "silence" on the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who killed by a Saudi hit team in the kingdom's Istanbul consulate.
"I cannot understand America's silence... We want everything to be clarified because there is an atrocity, there is a murder," Erdogan told an interview with state-run TRT television.
"The Khashoggi murder is not an ordinary one."
Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and Saudi regime critic, was murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct 2.
He visited the consulate to obtain paperwork for his upcoming marriage to a Turkish woman.
