Gory audio recordings reveal Saudi agents were waiting for Jamal Khashoggi at the nation's consulate in Turkey two weeks ago, and killed him in minutes — severing his fingers, beheading him, dismembering his body — and then vanished within two hours, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

The Times reported the lurid details were described by an unnamed senior Turkish official, offering yet another leak about the recordings that came as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Ankara — and an escalation of pressure on both Saudi Arabia and the United States for answers about the disappearance of the journalist.

According to the Times, the new leaks were also splashed across a pro-government newspaper.

Saudi officials Monday had assured Pompeo and the Trump administration they would conduct their own investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance — regardless of Turkish assertions senior figures in the royal court had ordered the killing.
