ISTANBUL | Funeral prayers held in Istanbul for slain Saudi journalist
ISTANBUL — Funeral prayers have been held in Istanbul for journalist Jamal Khashoggi more than a month after his slaying at the Saudi Consulate.
Khashoggi’s friends, Turkish politicians and others attended Friday’s funeral prayers at Istanbul’s Fatih Mosque. The prayers were held “in absentia” because The Washington Post columnist’s remains have not been found.
The prayers came a day after Saudi Arabia announced it would seek the death penalty against five men suspected in the killing.
