Khashoggi death: UN human rights chief calls for investigation

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is sticking to his position that he won't act until he gets referrals.

    The new United Nations human rights chief has told Al Jazeera it’s time for the UN to investigate Jamal Khashoggi's death - after almost two months of the Saudi and Turkish investigations that remain separate and seem to be going nowhere.

    But UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres - currently at the G20 summit - is sticking to his position that he will not act until he gets a referral from one of the UN’s major bodies and one of the member states of the UN.

    Al Jazeera's James Bays reports.
