Turkey’s president says his country is “patiently” waiting for Saudi Crown Prince Muhammed bin Salman to shed light on the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul last month.

Speaking to journalists on his return from World War I commemorations in Paris, Recep Tayyip Erdogan also said audio recordings of the killing that Turkey shared with officials from Saudi Arabia and other nations were so “atrocious” that a Saudi intelligence official who heard them speculated that the killer may have been on heroin.
