LONDON (Sputnik) - Hatice Cengiz, the fiancee of murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, said that she believed Saudi authorities knew the location of his remains.

"I am sure the Saudi regime knows where his body is. They should answer my demand as this is not only a demand of a fiancee, but also of a human and a Muslim. I want those who killed my beloved Jamal and those who ordered [the killing] to be brought to justice," Cengiz said, speaking at a memorial event held in Westminster.

"If only I knew what would happen, I would have entered the consulate myself," she stressed.
