CCTV shows Saudi operative 'wearing Jamal Khashoggi's clothes and fake beard' in consulate decoy
CCTV footage has been released which appears to show one of the 15 so-called Saudi Arabian "hit squad" posing as a body double for murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi. The images, which were published by CNN on Monday, show the decoy leaving the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by the back door, wearing Mr Khashoggi's clothes, a fake beard, and glasses, in the hours after he was killed. The man has been identified as Mustafa al-Madani - an official who was reportedly brought from Riyadh to Turkey to act as Khashoggi's body double. Four hours earlier Mr Madani, 57, who is of similar height, age and build to Khashoggi, entered the building by the front door, without a beard, wearing a blue and white checked shirt and dark blue trousers. "Khashoggi's clothes were probably still warm when Madani put them on," a senior Turkish official told CNN. Mr Khashoggi entered the consulate on October 2. His body has still not been found Credit:  REUTERS Saudi Arabia initially claimed that Mr Khashoggi had left the consulate through the back door, although footage of the double was never released to back up their claim. The kingdom finally acknowledged Mr Khashoggi's death on Saturday morning, when they said he was killed accidentally in a "fistfight". They claimed it was not done on the order of heir-apparent Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi Foreign Minister, told Fox News on Sunday that Khashoggi's killing was "a rogue operation"
