A Saudi man suspected of involvement in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi has been arrested in France, police say.
Khaled Aedh Alotaibi was arrested at Charles de Gaulle airport in Paris on Tuesday, a police source told the BBC.
He is believed to be one of 26 Saudis wanted by Turkey over the killing.
A Saudi official later said the arrest was a case of mistaken identity, and that those involved in the murder had been convicted in Saudi Arabia.
