Saudi FM: We Don’t Know Where Slain Journalist’s Body Is

3

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir insisted on Sunday that the kingdom did not know where the body of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi was, AFP reported.

Speaking in an interview on Fox News, Jubeir said the Saudi leadership initially believed Khashoggi had left its diplomatic mission in Istanbul, where he was last seen on October 2.

But following “reports we were getting from Turkey,” Saudi authorities began an investigation, which discovered “he was killed in the consulate”, added Jubeir.

“We don’t know, in terms of details, how. We don’t know where the body is,” the Saudi minister insisted, adding that the Saudi public prosecutor had ordered the detention of 18 individuals, “the first step in a long journey.”

He termed the killing a “tremendous mistake” but one which the US-Saudi relationship would eventually overcome.

  1. Smells fishy. Seems like Rand Paul is right that that he does not believe Saudi Arabia’s explanation of how dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi died earlier this month.

  2. Probably threw his body into the sea like Obama claims was done with Bin Laden. A nice mainstream fake news narrative for the sheeple.
