A year on, memorial held for Khashoggi

Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos joined activists and friends of Jamal Khashoggi near Saudi Arabia’s Consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday on the first-year anniversary of his horrific death at the hands of Saudi agents.

The memorial began just after 1-14 p.m. (1014 GMT), the time that Khashoggi walked into the consulate a year ago to collect documents for him to marry his Turkish fiancee, who was waiting for him outside. He never emerged.

Activists called for a comprehensive UN investigation into the murder and action.
