From Morning Report, 7:44 am on 23 October 2018

Turkish officials have released CCTV footage showing a body double was used to fake evidence that the murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi left Saudi Arabia's Istanbul consulate alive. A man of Mr Khashoggi's build who has been identified as Mustafa al-Madani, is seen arriving at the consulate before the journalist, and then leaving wearing Mr Khashoggi's clothes and a fake beard. The Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan has vowed to reveal more in the coming days. Our correspondent in Istanbul is Andrew Finkel.
