 Istanbul prosecutor’s office said on Wednesday it had prepared an indictment against 20 suspects deemed to be involved in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, as Reuters reported.

It said the indictment accuses former deputy head of Saudi Arabia’s general intelligence Ahmed al-Asiri and former royal court adviser Saud al-Qahtani as having “instigated premeditated murder with monstrous intent”.

It accuses 18 others of carrying out the killing of Khashoggi, a U.S. resident and columnist for the Washington Post, in October 2018, the prosecutor’s office said in a statement. (Reporting by Ezgi Erkoyun Writing by Ali Kucukgocmen Editing by Dominic Evans).
