Eleven Saudis Indicted in Murder of Journalist Khashoggi

HeadlineNov 15, 2018

In Saudi Arabia, the public prosecutor has announced 11 indictments and will seek the death penalty for five of the accused men in the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2 and was never seen again. The Saudi prosecutor affirmed Turkey’s account that Khashoggi was given a lethal injection before his body was dismembered and smuggled out of the building. The prosecutor—who answers directly to the Saudi royal family—blamed the operation on a senior intelligence officer—not Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Earlier this week, new details emerged about a Turkish audiotape that reportedly captured the last moments of Khashoggi’s life. A member of the Saudi kill team responsible for the assassination is reportedly heard saying on the phone to a top aide to the crown prince, “tell your boss” and “the deed was done.”
