Inside Story

How much is Turkey prepared to reveal on Khashoggi’s murder?

Saudi Arabia says it will pay ‘blood money’ to Jamal Khashoggi’s family as questions linger about his killing.

Sources have told Al Jazeera that Saudi Arabia is prepared to offer compensation to Jamal Khashoggi’s family and fiancee.

But more than a month after his disappearance, there’s still no sign of the journalist’s body and no answer to the key question: Who ordered his murder?

Details of Khashoggi’s gruesome murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, however, continue to be leaked.

But it is possible that Turkey still holds the most damning evidence yet. Ankara says that information will be released once the investigation is finished.
