Khashoggi was killed on Oct 2 in Saudi Arabia’s Istanbul consulate
Salah, the eldest son of murdered Saudi journalist, and his family have left Saudi Arabia after the government lifted a travel ban.
“Salah and his family are finally out of Riyadh and or their way to the US,” said Sarah Leah Whitson, the HRW’s executive director for the Middle East and North Africa.
BREAKING Good news for a change: confirming that #JamalKhashoggi son Salah and his family are finally out of Riyadh and on their way to US, travel ban lifted. Too bad Salah had to endure that cruel and bizarre greeting with MBS first.
