Saudis sentence 5 to death for Jamal Khashoggi’s killing

Saudi Arabia has sentenced five people to death for the killing of Washington Post columnist and royal family critic Jamal Khashoggi. His grisly slaying in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul last year drew international condemnation and cast a cloud of suspicion over Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Saudi Arabia’s state TV reported Monday that three others have been sentenced to prison. Amnesty International is calling the outcome a “whitewash.” And a U.N. investigator says the verdicts are a “mockery” and the masterminds behind the killing “have been barely touched.”
