Deputy State Department spokesman Robert Palladino said the United States wants Saudi Arabia to locate the remains of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi and return them to his family for a proper burial as soon as possible. Turkish authorities say the 59-year-old Saudi journalist was killed by strangulation immediately after entering Riyadh’s consulate in Istanbul, before his body was «cut into pieces.» VOA’s Diplomatic Correspondent Cindy Saine reports from the State Department.
