The fiancée of missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Khadija Genghis, has said she “is suffering from a serious psychological crisis” and is “on the brink of collapse”.

Writing on Twitter, Khadija explained: “Those who are asking about my condition, I am living as if caught between life and death, between sky and earth, and between heaven and hell […] I wake up with hope and lose all of it after the sun sets. I experience death every day a thousand times! O Everlasting Living God … Give me patience”.

The ongoing investigation into the disappearance and alleged murder of Khadija’s fiancée, Jamal Khashoggi, has revealed new evidence obtained by the Turkish authorities which is said to show his murder inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

They also claim to have evidence of Khashoggi’s killing which “shows an attack and a confrontation inside the consulate and also the moment Khashoggi was killed,” according to source who obtained this information from a Western intelligence agency.

The source added that the Western intelligence agency was “shocked by the evidence” presented by Turkish officials and that this evidence comes in audio as well as visual form.
