    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.
