Interpol Issues Red Notices To Detain 20 Saudi Suspects In Khashoggi Murder Case - Reports
The International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) has issued red notices to locate and provisionally arrest 20 nationals of Saudi Arabia, who are believed to be linked to the killing of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish media reported on Thursday
Riyadh initially denied any knowledge of the journalist's whereabouts, but later admitted that Khashoggi had been killed with a drug injection and his body had been dismembered and taken out of the consulate. The Saudi authorities have charged 11 people with Khashoggi's murder.
The Istanbul Prosecutor's Office stated that the assassination of Khashoggi had been pre-planned. Turkey urged Saudi Arabia to extradite the perpetrators of the crime, as well as to provide information on the location of Khashoggi's body.
