ANKARA, Oct 18 (Reuters) - Turkish crime scene investigators left the Saudi consulate in Istanbul after searching the premises and consular vehicles as part of an investigation into missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Reuters witness said on Thursday.
The inspections in the consulate, using bright lights to illuminate the consulate’s garden, were the second search there this week. Authorities spent about nine hours there on Monday.
Turkish and Saudi investigators also spent almost another nine hours in the Saudi consul’s residence earlier on Thursday. (Reporting by Umit Ozdal and Yesim Dikmen Writing by Tuvan Gumrukcu Editing by Paul Tait)
