President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said recordings related to the killing of Jamal Khashoggi which Turkey has shared with Western allies are "appalling" and shocked a Saudi intelligence officer who listened to them, Turkish media reported Tuesday. Khashoggi, a critic of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, was killed in Saudi Arabia's Istanbul consulate on Oct. 2 in a hit which Erdogan says was ordered at the "highest levels" of the Saudi government. Bolton shares with Saudi Arabia a hawkish stance against Riyadh's biggest Middle East rival Iran, and he championed Washington's resumption of sanctions on Tehran.In his comments to reporters, Erdogan said it was clear the killing was planned and that the order came from the top level of Saudi authorities, but that he could not think such a thing of King Salman, for whom he has "limitless respect".
