ISTANBUL (Reuters) - Slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi had said he was treated well during his first visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Sept. 28, his fiancee Hatice Cengiz told broadcaster Haberturk on Friday.

She said in an interview that Khashoggi did not tell her to call anyone in case anything happened to him during his second visit on Oct. 2 but that he had previously told her to contact Yasin Aktay, an adviser of Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, if he faced any trouble in Turkey.
