De Niro calls for ac­tion on Saudi jour­nal­ist’s killing

Daily Sabah (Turkey) - - Politics -

HOL­LY­WOOD star Robert De Niro has called for do­ing “some­thing” re­gard­ing the killing of Saudi jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi, yesterday.

“I am up­set about what hap­pened to Khashoggi,” De Niro told re­porters on the side­lines of the Morocco-based 17th Mar­rakech In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val.

“That was not good, un­ac­cept­able, and some­thing has to be done about it,” he said.

On Wed­nes­day, fa­mous Hol­ly­wood ac­tor and di­rec­tor Sean Penn came to Is­tan­bul to shoot a documentary about Khashoggi’s mur­der.

The Os­car-win­ning ac­tor, who is also known for his po­lit­i­cal and so­cial ac­tivism, shot footage in front of Saudi Ara­bia’s Con­sulate in Is­tan­bul where Khashoggi was mur­dered.

The Amer­i­can ac­tor will re­port­edly have meet­ings with Khashoggi’s fi­ancee Hat­ice Cen­giz and a few oth­ers who were close to the jour­nal­ist.
