Is Riyadh’s claim Jamal Khashoggi died in a fist-fight credible?

Saudi Arabia says Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside its consulate in Istanbul.

The announcement was made on Saudi state TV in the middle of the night – 17 days after the Saudi journalist was last seen going into the compound.

The kingdom says there was a brawl and Khashoggi died. US President Donald Trump says he finds that explanation “credible” but many politicians in the US and around the world are sceptical.

Turkish security sources have a different story.

They say Khashoggi was tortured, murdered and his body dismembered.
