Saudis Used Body Double After Murdering Journalist Jamal Khashoggi: Report

Turkish officials tell CNN that Saudi Arabia used a body double after murdering Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggias on Oct. 2, as part of their cover-up.

One member of the 15-man Saudi death squad reportedly dressed up in Khashoggi’s clothes and was filmed — on surveillance cameras — walking around Istanbul, the day the journalist was killed.

CNN obtained Turkish law enforcement surveillance footage that appears to show the body double leaving the Saudi consulate while wearing Khashoggi’s clothes, a fake beard and glasses.
