UN calls for international role on Khashoggi inquiry

The agency’s spokeswoman, Ravina Shamdasani, also urged Saudi Arabia to reveal the whereabouts of Khashoggi’s body, saying that a forensic examination and autopsy were crucial elements in an investigation into the “shockingly brazen crime” carried out in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.
