ANKARA (Reuters) - Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman must uncover the killers of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Saturday, adding that some aspects of the murder were still being hidden.

Speaking at a news conference at the G20 summit in Japan, Erdogan said a 15-person team that arrived in Istanbul before the killing were responsible and he said there was “no point in looking for perpetrators elsewhere.” He also said the killers should be prosecuted in Turkey.
