Gory details of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder have emerged, as a Turkish source who has listened in full to an audio recording of Khashoggi’s last moments told Middle East Eye that it took him seven minutes to die.

The source said that Khashoggi was dragged from the consul-general’s office at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and into his study next door, where his body was cut up on a table while he was still alive as horrific screams could be heard in the building until Khashoggi was injected with an unknown substance.

Those who carried out the murder were part of a 15-man hit squad sent from Riyadh, according to Turkish media, and The New York Times reported that four members of that team were members of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s personal security detail.

One of those on the hit squad was Salah Muhammad al-Tubaigy, the head of forensic evidence in the Saudi general security department. The Turkish source told Middle East Eye that it was Tubaigy who began to cut up Khashoggi’s body.

The source said that as Tubaigy began doing this, he put on earphones and listened to music, advising other members of the squad to do the same.

A three-minute version of the tape was reportedly handed over to Turkish newspaper Sabah, but they have yet to release it.

Saudi officials have strongly denied any involvement in the disappearance of Khashoggi, who was last seen entering Istanbul’s Saudi consulate.
