Amnesty International renamed the street outside the Saudi Arabian embassy in central London as “Khashoggi Street” to mark a month since the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate building in Turkey.

A mock “Khashoggi Street” sign was erected near the gates of the Saudi embassy, exactly one month after CCTV cameras last recorded the journalist entering the consulate building in Istanbul.

Kate Allen, Amnesty International UK’s Director, said:
“The whole world has been shocked by this grotesque killing, and it’s vital that we don’t let the outrage fade away without justice being done.”
“We need to see Jamal Khashoggi’s killers brought to justice – not only those who actually carried out the murder, but those who ordered it and knew it was about to happen.”
