Saudi London embassy protest planned over journalist’s murder

A PROTEST will be staged at the Saudi Arabian Embassy in London tomorrow over the murder in Turkey of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and Saudi’s war on Yemen.

The 5pm demonstration has been organised by the Arab Organisation for Human Rights in the UK and supported by the Stop the War Coalition.

A joint statement said: “The crisis over Saudi Arabia is growing. Even the former foreign secretary Jack Straw has stated that Britain should not only end arms sales to the country but also recall its ambassador to Saudi Arabia following the death of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

“The Saudi-led bombing and siege of Yemen are creating what is likely to be world’s most lethal famine for 100 years. Up to 14 million people are at risk.

“Now is the time to step up the campaign. We are asking people to organise petitioning, protests and public meetings in their area.”

The campaigners are making three demands — justice for Jamal Khashoggi, stop arming Saudi Arabia and stop the war in Yemen.

From the Sydney Morning Herald in Australia, 23 October 2018:

‘Bring me the head of the dog [Khashoggi]’: How the man behind Khashoggi murder ran killing via Skype

He ran social media for Saudi Arabia’s crown prince. He masterminded the arrest of hundreds of his country’s elite. He detained a Lebanese prime minister. And, according to two intelligence sources, he ran journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s brutal killing at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by giving orders over Skype.

Saud al-Qahtani, a top aide for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, is one of the fall guys as Riyadh tries to stem international outrage at Khashoggi’s death.
