After Khashoggi murder, Saudi Arabia tortured and killed another journalist

Prince Turki Al-Faisal, Saudi Arabia's former spy chief, says the country is proud of its judicial system and will never accept an global investigation into the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Media reports have suggested that Khashoggi's body, which has not been found, could have been chemically dissolved.

The brutal killing of Khashoggi on 2 October has tarnished the image of powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, whose possible role in the assassination has been under heavy scrutiny.

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

Khashoggi, an outspoken critic of bin Salman, entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, but never came back.

The Saudi Arabian regime has killed another journalist who had exposed human rights violations in the country, according to the latest reports on Arab media.

In a message to The Associated Press on Friday, she said she had not received any information from officials to confirm the reports, which originated from pan Arab satellite channel Al Jazeera on Thursday, saying Khashoggi's body had been dissolved with acid.

A source in the Turkish attorney general's office told Al Jazeera that the investigative team found traces of hydrofluoric acid and other chemicals inside a well at the Saudi consul general's home in Istanbul.

But Riyadh hasn't yet identified the location of the body, despite requests by the sons of the slain Saudi journalist who made an emotional appeal for the return of their father's body, saying they wanted to return to Saudi Arabia to bury him.
