Saudi Arabia said on Saturday that 18 people were arrested over the death of the missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Saudi Press Agency (SPA) reported.

The initial investigations by the Public Prosecution revealed that Khashoggi had a physical fight with those he met at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, which led to his death, SPA said.

The Public Prosecution confirmed that the investigation over the case will continue, saying all involved in the case will be held accountable.

Saudi Arabia previously repeatedly denied allegations that the kingdom had murdered or arrested Khashoggi.
