President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s remarks calling the death a planned operation conflict with the account provided by Saudi officials, who have said journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed during a fistfight when “rogue” Saudi agents had tried to bring him back to Riyadh.
The video recorded by Turkish law enforcement of a purported body double for the slain journalist leaving the Saudi Consulate was released as pressure mounted on the Saudi government to explain what happened to Khashoggi.
The killing has brought more attention to Mohammed bin Salman’s efforts to silence dissent since he became crown prince. “There are no human rights defenders still free,” said Yahya Assiri, a Saudi human rights activist who lives in self-exile. “They are all behind bars.”

For a growing number of white Northerners, the Confederate flag represents a link to President Trump’s “Make America Great Again” brand of patriotism. But to others, flying the flag is simply racism by a different name.
