Slain journalist Khashoggi’s sons demand his body

Jerusalem, Nov 5: The sons of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi have appealed for the return of their father's body to be buried in Saudi Arabia.

In their first interview on Sunday to CNN since their father was killed in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul a month ago, Salah and Abdullah Khashoggi said they have endured weeks of anguish and uncertainty following his disappearance and death, a report in Israel national news said.

"I really hope that whatever happened wasn't painful for him, or it was quick.Or he had a peaceful death," they said.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist critical of the Saudi government and its de facto ruler Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was killed after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. UNI
