Top-level Saudi or­dered slay­ing, Er­do­gan says

Merced Sun-Star (Saturday) - - News -

The or­der to kill Saudi jour­nal­ist Ja­mal Khashoggi came from the high­est level of the Saudi gov­ern­ment, Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Re­cep Tayyip Er­do­gan said Fri­day, adding that the in­ter­na­tional com­mu­nity had a duty to “re­veal the pup­pet masters.”

In an op-ed in The Wash­ing­ton Post, Er­do­gan said he did not be­lieve that Saudi King Sal­man or­dered the killing at the Saudi Con­sulate on Oct. 2 of Khashoggi, who had writ­ten crit­i­cally of Crown Prince Mo­hammed bin Sal­man.

“We know that the or­der to kill Khashoggi came from the high­est lev­els of the Saudi gov­ern­ment,” Er­do­gan said.
