Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan had earlier demanded Saudi Arabia reveal the location of Khashoggi's body and hand over the suspects.

The prosecutor's office in Istanbul has submitted an official extradition request to Saudi Arabia for the 18 individuals suspected of murdering Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

None of the 18 have been formally charged with the offense, and it's looking increasingly likely that Saudi Arabia will reject the Turkish request for extradition. 

Speaking to CNN, Saudi Adel Al-Jubeir claimed, "The individuals are Saudi nationals. They're detained in Saudi Arabia, and the investigation is in Saudi Arabia, and they will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia."

However, Turkish Justice Minister Abdulhamir Gul said Friday that Turkey wants its extradition request fulfilled since "this atrocious incident happened in Turkey."

He also stated that, Turkish institutions were capable and determined in their investigation, according to Turkey's state news agency Anadolu.
