Turkish television network A Haber has published new footage that could shine some light into the Jamal Khashoggi murder investigation.

The footage shows an unidentified man carrying several bags with unknown items into what appears to be the consul's general residence.

Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in the Saudi Arabia consulate in Istanbul, Turkey. He was last seen entering the consulate on October 2, as shown in the story's main picture.

The Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement that Khashoggi died when a "suspect" tried to take him from Turkey to Saudi Arabia.

"Preliminary investigations conducted by the Public Prosecution showed that the suspect travelled to Istanbul to meet with Jamal Khashoggi after indications appeared the possibility of returning Jamal Khashoggi to the country."

The statement mentions that Khashoggi, who was critical of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, got involved in a quarrel that led to his death.

The journalist's death has been widely criticised by the international community. Turkey is working with other countries to carry the investigation into Khashoggi's killing to the United Nations, according to comments made last week by the country's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu.

Cavusoglu also called on Saudi Arabia to share its findings on the case with the international community.
