Miss­ing jour­nal­ist may have been mur­dered

The Guardian Weekly - - Global report -

Turk­ish au­thor­i­ties have claimed that the high-pro­file dis­si­dent Ja­mal Khashoggi was mur­dered in the Saudi Con­sulate in Is­tan­bul by a hit squad sent from Riyadh, amid calls for an in­ter­na­tional in­quiry into the dis­ap­pear­ance.

Af­ter al­leg­ing last Satur­day that the jour­nal­ist was killed in an act of state-spon­sored mur­der, and that his body was later re­moved, of­fi­cials said last Sun­day they had based their be­liefs on an in­ves­ti­ga­tion by po­lice and in­tel­li­gence of­fi­cers, who had pored over se­cu­rity cam­era footage and spo­ken with in­for­mants in­side the con­sulate.
