Fi­ancee shocked by re­ports that Khashoggi’s body was melted

Malta Independent - - World -

The fi­ancee of slain Saudi jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi has ex­pressed “shock and sadness” over re­ports sug­gest­ing that his body may have been dis­solved with chem­i­cals. Hat­ice Cen­giz said on Twit­ter late Thurs­day that Khashoggi’s killers had de­prived his loved ones of con­duct­ing fu­neral prayers and bury­ing him in Me­d­ina, Saudi Ara­bia, as he had wished. Turkey says the Wash­ing­ton Post colum­nist, who was crit­i­cal of the Saudi crown prince, was stran­gled and dis­mem­bered at the Saudi Con­sulate in Is­tan­bul on Oct. 2 by a 15-mem­ber as­sas­si­na­tion squad. Me­dia re­ports have sug­gested that his body, which has not been found, could have been chem­i­cally dis­solved. In a mes­sage to The As­so­ci­ated Press on Fri­day, Cen­giz said she has not re­ceived in­for­ma­tion from of­fi­cials to con­firm those re­ports.
