The cause of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s death was a “chokehold or strangulation,” a source close to Saudi Royal family told CNN.
According to CNN, no supporting evidence has been produced to support what caused the journalist’s death.
Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist and columnist for The Washington Post, had gone missing since entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018
After days of denying to know his whereabouts, Saudi Arabia on Saturday claimed Khashoggi died during a fight inside the consulate.
Saudi Press Agency reported Saturday that 18 Saudi citizens have been arrested over links to killing of Khashoggi.
