The G7 wants more answers about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi



The G7 said today that the explanation of the death of Saudi opposition journalist Jamal Khashoggi offered by Saudi Arabia "leaves many questions unanswered" and that the confirmation of his death is "a first step".

The foreign ministers of the Group of Seven (G7), together with the high representative of the European Union (EU), issued a statement condemning "in the strongest possible terms" the murder of Khashoggi at the consulate of Saudi Arabia in Istanbul.

"We reiterate our expectations of a full, credible, transparent and rapid investigation by Saudi Arabia, in full collaboration with the Turkish authorities," the G7 added.
