Killing of Jamal Khashoggi

  1. Khashoggi fiancée calls for Premier League to block Newcastle Saudi takeover

    The fiancée of murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi has urged the Premier League to block the takeover of Newcastle United by Saudi Arabia.

    Khashoggi, a dissident Saudi columnist, was killed in 2018 inside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Turkey.

    Western intelligence agencies believe Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered his death - which he denies.

    Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund, led by the prince, looks set to acquire an 80% stake in the club.

    But lawyers speaking on behalf of Hatice Cengiz, Khashoggi's fiancée, said the takeover should be blocked over the killing.
