THE fiancee of Jamal Khashoggi issued an heartbreaking statement saying she's horrified that the body of the slain Saudi journalist may have been dissolved in chemicals.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan says officials from Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany, France and Britain have listened to audio recordings related to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

"I'm unable to express my sorrow to learn about dissolving your body Jamal!"

Khashoggi, a critic of authorities in Riyadh, disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. They killed you and chopped up your body, depriving me and your family of conducting your funeral prayer and burying you in Madinah as wished.

It is not yet clear when Sherman's bill will come up for a vote in Congress but the report said it wasn't going to come to the floor any sooner than January 3, when the new Democratic-controlled House of Representatives convenes.

"We gave the tapes".

Earlier this week, Turkish officials said Khashoggi's remains had been dissolved in acid, and none of them survived.

The statement said state law requires a recount when the margin between candidates is less than a one-half percentage point. A spokeswoman for the agency said there were no credible allegations of fraud, therefore no active investigation.

Al-Jasser was arrested in March in Dubai, after the "Saudi Cyber Army" agents deployed by Saud Al-Qahtani, the former aide of Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman, found purported evidence against him.

Samples taken from the drains at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul showed traces of acid, pro-government daily Sabah said, without quoting sources.

Saudi Arabia had initially denied that Khashoggi was killed inside the building, initially insisting that he left it.

Erdoğan also said on that he may meet U.S. President Donald Trump in Paris during the commemorations.

Erdogan said the killer, or killers, would be known to the 18 suspects identified by Turkish authorities - including 15 men who arrived from Saudi Arabia shortly before Khashoggi's death.

Khashoggi went missing on October 2 after entering the consulate to obtain documents for marriage procedures.
