Turkey: Khashoggi supporters hold protest vigil outside Saudi consulate

Turkey, Istanbul
October 25, 2018 at 21:17 GMT +00:00 · Published

Demonstrators gathered outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Thursday, in support of the ongoing investigations into the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Amr Darrag, a friend of Khashoggi and a former Egyptian government minister, read a statement at the event, saying that the demonstrators would "follow all legitimate means to achieve full justice for Jamal, so as not to wake up to see another murdered Jamal."

Khashoggi was last seen alive entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. The Turkish authorities believe he was the victim of a premeditated and political murder.

The kingdom provided conflicting accounts of the journalist's fate before eventually admitting he died inside its Istanbul consulate during a "rogue operation".

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman has come under increasing pressure to reveal the full extent of his involvement in the killing. One demonstrator wore a mask bearing the face of the Crown Prince and covered his hands with red paint to resemble blood, in an allusion to these allegations.
