Following the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the country's top prosecutor has visited the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey.
 
The visit took place on Tuesday and is part of an investigation into the death of Khashoggi.
 
It came after the second meeting between Saudi prosecutor Saud al-Mojeb and Istanbul Chief Public Prosecutor Irfan Fidan.
 
According to Turkey's state broadcaster TRT Haber, the Saudi prosecutor asked the Turkish side to reveal all images and videos related to the murder, but Turkish prosecutors rejected the request.
 
Earlier last week, Turkish prosecutors demanded the extradition of the suspects for trial in Turkey, while the Saudi side insisted the suspects be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia.
 
Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and a critic of the Saudi government, was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2.
 
The search for his body and the investigation into his death are still underway.
