Turkish officials arrive to search Saudi consulate where journalist 'was killed' after cleaners entered the building, amid claims the interior has been REPAINTED since Khashoggi's disappearance

A team of Turkish and Saudi officials tonight entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul for a joint inspection two weeks after a Washington Post journalist apparently vanished inside.

They entered the building at 6pm local time, hours after a cleaning team swept the premises amid claims the walls have been repainted since Jamal Khashoggi was allegedly assassinated and dismembered for criticising the Saudi crown prince.

Tonight's inspection was agreed after Saudi King Salman and Turkish President Erdogan spoke yesterday - but the Turks don't trust the Saudis not to obfuscate the investigation, a senior Turkish source today told the Middle Eastern Eye.

Officials have not revealed what the inspection will involve or how long it will last.
