    Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, vanished on October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to obtain an official document for his upcoming marriage.

    Saudi Arabia announced on Friday that Khashoggi died in a fight at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul after having denied any knowledge of his whereabouts for two weeks. It said 18 people had been arrested and intelligence chief Ahmad Assiri and senior aide to the Saudi crown prince Saud al-Qahtani sacked over the incident.
