Turkish officials say they have audio and video footage of missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi being tortured and killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul which was retrieved from his Apple Watch.

Khashoggi, who wrote columns for the Washington Post and is a temporary US resident has not been seen since entering the consulate last week.
The Saudi government insists they are not involved and claim Khashoggi left the consulate on his own, even though his fiancee was waiting outside the entire time.
On Friday, President Trump promised to call Saudi King Mohammed Bin Salman about the situation, which he called "potentially a really, really terrible situation."

Turkey is claiming that Kashoggi turned on his Apple Watch as he entered the consulate, an act which they purport would ultimately lead to the recording of his supposed torture and dismemberment at the hands of the Saudis.
But in the shocker of the year, some serious holes have appeared in the Turks' version of the story. Much of it having to do with the journalist's Apple Watch.
A glaring inaccuracy in the Sabah report is that Khashoggi's assailants tried to unlock the Apple Watch with multiple password attempts, ultimately using his fingerprint to unlock the device.
The Apple Watch doesn't have the same "Touch ID" fingerprint technology as the iPhone and the iPad.
Only time will tell just how badly Turkish authorities are lying, if the facts ever decide to grace us with their presence.
