Khashoggi’s assassination by Saudis not far from expectations

IRNA – The Assassination of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi by Riyadh regime was not far from expectations, RT Arabic quoted Hossein Amir Abdollahian, advisor to Iran’s Parliament Speaker as saying.

Saudi Arabia that has so far killed many civilians, kids and women in Yemen, can also have such reaction toward its critics and oppositions, Hossein Amir Abdollahian, also director general for International Affairs of the Iranian parliament said.

‘Regarding Khashoggi’s case we will wait for Turkey investigations,’ he added.

The 59-year-old Saudi investigative journalist, who had left the country since Bin Salman was named Crown Prince and moved to the US, vanished on October 2 after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul to collect documents for his forthcoming marriage.

In his articles published mostly by the Washington Post, he sharply rebuked Saudi Arabia’s policies, including Saudi Arabia’s war against Yemen, financial crisis between Saudi Arabia and Canada and arresting women’s rights activists.

Some unofficial news sources say Saudi security agents have tortured and brutally murdered the prominent journalist inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, cutting his body up into pieces.
