Jamal Khashoggi Part 3

Episode 3.3: Jamal Khashoggi Part 3

This episode marks the conclusion of our three-part investigation into the assassination of the Saudi writer and political commentator Jamal Khashoggi. After a massive international public outcry, and with clear signs that the United States' government was in possession of damning evidence that Khashoggi was the victim of a brutal assassination, the Saudis put eleven men on trial in January 2019. There are claims that the accused were part of a team of Saudi operatives known as the "Tiger Squad,” which has allegedly carried out several assassinations of opponents of the Saudi leader, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Whatever the outcome of this trial, which has been criticized by numerous human rights groups, questions remain as to whether anyone at the top of the Saudi government will be held responsible.
