A Year Later, Saudi Journalist's Killing Haunts Kingdom

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates (AP) — The killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul is drawing renewed scrutiny to the kingdom.

Khashoggi's son and a U.N. investigator spoke out on Tuesday, on the eve of the anniversary of his brutal slaying.

Saudi intelligence officials and a forensic doctor killed and dismembered Khashoggi on Oct. 2, 2018, just as his fiancée waited outside the diplomatic post.

Khashoggi, long a royal court insider, had been in self-imposed exile in the U.S. while writing critically of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, son Saudi King Salman.

While the crown prince recently told CBS' "60 Minutes" he did not order the writer's killing, U.S. lawmakers and U.N. investigator Agnes Callamard laid the blame for the slaying on the prince.
