Turkey's president says he has heard an audio recording in which a suspected killer of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi allegedly says: "I know how to cut well."

Speaking on Friday, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan added that the man heard in the recording was a high-level soldier and "morgue employee" who "openly" said he could dissect a body. Turkey has shared the audio recording with Saudi Arabia, the United States, Germany and others.

Turkey says a 15-person hit squad killed Khashoggi on Oct. 2 in Saudi Arabia's Istanbul consulate. His remains have not been found.

Erdogan also criticized the Saudi crown prince Mohammad bin Salman for saying the journalist had left the consulate, a claim he later reversed. "This nation is not dumb, it knows how to hold (people) accountable," said Erdogan.
