Turkey Expected To Open Probe Over Murder Of Saudi Journalist

Turkey is expected to launch an investigation over the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, which took place in the Saudi consulate in Turkey back in October.

The Turkish Foreign Minister made the announcement late Monday saying the country would continue with the “necessary steps” shortly.

The body of the Washington Post journalist was reportedly dismembered after he refused to return to Saudi Arabia.

Turkey has repeatedly questioned Saudi integrity in the case and have suggested the Crown Prince directly ordered the murder, though Saudi officials deny this claim.

Khashoggi was known for being critical of Saudi leadership, including Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, preceding his murder.

Eleven people have been indicted in Saudi Arabia in connection with the killing, and some could be facing the death penalty.
