Interpol issues red notices for 20 Khashoggi murder suspects - Turkey

Turkey said on Thursday that Interpol had issued red notices for 20 people linked to the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Reuters reported

Turkey’s Justice Ministry said the red notices for 20 suspects were issued on March 1. Turkey requested red notices for 18 people on Nov. 15 and for two more on Dec. 21.

Interpol was not immediately available for comment, Reuters said. 

Khashoggi, a vocal critic of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed inside the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2. 

Turkish authorities believe Khashoggi was killed by a 15-man Saudi squad sent from the kingdom. Saudi authorities say the men acted without authority. Riyadh has said 11 men have been indicted for the killing, but has not named them. The journalist’s body has still not been found.
