Riyadh: Saudi Arabia, in the latest reversal in its version of how Jamal Khashoggi was killed in Turkey, said on Thursday that the death of dissident journalist had been “premeditated”. Saudi officials last week said that Khashoggi, a supporter-turned-critic of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman, was killed “accidentally” in a fist fight at the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul by “rogue” agents. The Thursday’s announcement was made by Saudi public prosecutor through the state-run news media. The Saudi Foreign Ministry said the prosecutor will continue investigation based on the new information. Saudi Arabia initially denied any knowledge of Khashoggi’s fate, but later said it had arrested 18 people and dismissed five officials after a preliminary investigation. (IANS)
