Saudi Arabia admits journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed in its consulate in Istanbul.
In a statement on Saudi state TV, Saudi officials said an initial investigation shows Khashoggi died after a fight broke out between the journalist and people at the consulate.
An investigation is moving forward and 18 suspects have been arrested.
The Saudi crown prince dismissed his deputy intelligence chief as well as his close adviser, who oversees propaganda abroad.
There is no word on where Khashoggi’s body is located, though it’s been rumored to have been dismembered and flown back to Saudi Arabia.
