The Washington Post published a surveillance image on Tuesday showing its missing Saudi contributor walking into the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul a week ago, just before he disappeared.
The image released by the Post bore a date and date stamp. It showed Khashoggi, suited in black, entering the consulate, with an unknown man in front of him. The Post said “a person close to the investigation” shared the image with them.
Khashoggi writes for the Washington Post and is considered as outspoken critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s leadership.
The Saudi journalist entered the Saudi consulate Tuesday (October 2) to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage while his Turkish fiancée waited outside. But his fiancée said she never saw him re-emerge.
Turkish officials have said that Khashoggi was murdered inside the consulate.
