Turkey requests the extradition of Saudi suspects in the Kashoggi affair

The Istanbul prosecutor submitted an official request to extradite the 18 Saudi citizens suspected of being involved in the Khashoggi affair, Reuters reports on Friday.
Journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was a Saudi citizen, went missing after visiting the Saudi embassy in Istanbul on October 2. He was requested to visit the embassy to complete his divorce procedures and never walked out. 
An audio recording reportedly exists proving that Khashoggi was tortured and dismembered by a hit squad.  Some of whose members have close ties to Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
