UN rights chief calls for international participation in Khashoggi inquiry


United Nations human rights chief Michelle Bachelet called for international experts to take part in an independent investigation into the killing of Khashoggi, with access to evidence and witnesses.

"For an investigation to be carried out free of any appearance of political considerations, the involvement of international experts, with full access to evidence and witnesses, would be highly desirable," Bachelet said in a statement.

Bachelet also urged Saudi Arabia to reveal the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body, adding that a forensic examination and autopsy were crucial in the ongoing investigation into the "shockingly brazen crime" carried out in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
