The memorial was organized by the Justice for Jamal Khashoggi campaign.

Khashoggi's friends and family say they want even just a piece of his body so they can carry out his wish to be buried in the city of Medina, Islam's second holiest site.

An adviser to Erdogan said last week that MbS, as the crown prince is informally known, had "blood on his hands" over Khashoggi's killing, the bluntest comments yet from someone linked to Erdogan about Riyadh's de facto ruler in connection with the death.

As we witness the worldwide outrage at his killing, the perpetrators should know that they can never erase his vision for his beloved country.

"We know that the order to kill Khashoggi came from the highest levels of the Saudi government", Erdogan wrote.

"There's now an added cost to. cooperating or partnering with Saudi Arabia in general, the government in particular and, especially, the crown prince".

Erdogan said there still are other significant questions, such as where his body is and the identity of the "local collaborator" to whom Saudi officials claim to have handed Khashoggi's remains.

The kingdom has faced a torrent of global condemnation over the murder of Khashoggi, upending the young crown prince's image as a reformer on the worldwide stage.

Ms Cengiz said President Donald Trump's administration has taken a position that is "devoid of moral foundation" and based on national interest. Amid a public outcry and reports that Khashoggi was brutally tortured, killed, and dismembered, the Kingdom launched an investigation, admitted the journalist's death and, so far, has produced 18 suspects in the case.

"I would like to send this message to Mr Trump: I would like him to support Turkey's legal efforts in trying to bring light to the situation and to discover the whereabouts of his body", Hatice Cengiz said in a recorded message.

Ms Cengiz made a strong plea for answers, noting that Istanbul's top prosecutor had already accused Saudi agents of strangling Khashoggi and dismembering and destroying his body.

"According to the latest information we have, the reason they cut up the body is it was easier to dissolve it".

"Khashoggi's body was not in need of burying", the official told The Washington Post.

"The whole world has been shocked by this grotesque killing, and it's vital that we don't let the outrage fade away without justice being done", Kate Allen, Amnesty International UK's Director said. "Yet at the same time I say it, it is very important for the stability of the world, for the region and for the world, that Saudi Arabia remain stable".
