Slain Journo Ja­mal Khashoggi’s Son Leaves Saudi Ara­bia for US

The Day After - - GLOBAL TIT-BIT -

The son of slain jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi has left Saudi Ara­bia af­ter the king­dom re­voked a travel ban, al­low­ing him to come to the United States — the lat­est in the saga of the Saudi writer and dis­si­dent whose macabre killing ear­lier this month at the Saudi Con­sulate in Is­tan­bul shocked the world. State De­part­ment spokesman Robert Pal­ladino said Wash­ing­ton wel­comes the de­ci­sion to have Salah Khashoggi and his fam­ily leaves Saudi Ara­bia. His US des­ti­na­tion was not im­me­di­ately known but his late fa­ther lived in the Wash­ing­ton area.

Pal­ladino said on Oc­to­ber 25th that US Sec­re­tary of State Mike Pom­peo had dis­cussed Ja­mal Khashoggi’s son dur­ing his re­cent visit to Riyadh and “made it clear” to Saudi lead­ers that Wash­ing­ton wanted him free to leave the king­dom. Pal­ladino also said Pom­peo at­tended a brief­ing on for­mer Wash­ing­ton Post writer’s death by CIA Direc­tor Gina Haspel, fol­low­ing her re­turn from Turkey.
