Khashoggi in August 2011

Jamal Ahmad Khashoggi (13 October 1958 – 2 October 2018) was a Saudi Arabian journalist and Washington Post columnist,[1] author and the former general manager and editor-in-chief of Al Arab News Channel.[2]

Khashoggi was kept hostage in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October 2018.[3][4][5] According to Turkish sources, they believe that Khashoggi was then brutally tortured for several days[6][7][8] and later killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.[9][10]

On 15 October, an inspection of the consulate, by both Saudi Arabian followed by Turkish officials took place and found evidence of "tampering" during the inspection, and evidence that supported the belief Khashoggi was killed.[11]

On 20 October, the Saudi government admitted that Khashoggi had died inside the Turkish consulate, claiming he had been strangled to death after a fight had broken out.[12]
