Saudi Arabia will seek the death penalty for the killers of government critic Jamal Khashoggi, who was murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, a Saudi prosecutor said Thursday.
Eleven people have been charged in Khashoggi’s murder out of 21 people held in the case. Khashoggi, a fierce critic of the Saudi royal family, was strangled to death at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 and his body dismembered, the Saudi chief prosecutor said.
