The four organizations said an global investigation should probe Saudi Arabia's role and aim to identify everyone responsible for ordering, planning and executing any operations related to Khashoggi's disappearance.

Journalist Jamal Khashoggi was allegedly killed at the Saudi Arabian consulate in Turkey, and many USA lawmakers are pointing to the Saudi government as being responsible.

Turkish police are searching a forest on the outskirts of Istanbul and a city near the Sea of Marmara for remains of a Saudi dissident journalist who disappeared two weeks ago after entering the Saudi consulate, two Turkish officials said.

Reports earlier this week had suggested the Saudis were preparing to admit that Mr Khashoggi had died in a botched interrogation.

The incident has resulted in global outrage, more so in the USA where he lived as a legal permanent resident and worked for The Washington Post.
