Istanbul prosecutor seeks arrest of Saudi officials over Khashoggi killing

It was based on suspicion of the officials’ complicity in planning the killing of  Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The prosecutor’s office has concluded there is “strong suspicion” that Saud al-Qahtani and General Ahmed al-Asiri, who were removed from their positions in October, were among the planners of the Oct. 2 killing at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, the officials said.

“The prosecution’s move to issue arrest warrants for Asiri and Qahtani reflects the view that the Saudi authorities won’t take formal action against those individuals,” one of the Turkish officials said.(Reuters/NAN)
