A Saudi court has sentenced five people to death for the October 2018 murder of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the nation's consulate in Istanbul. Saudi Arabia's top prosecutor made the announcement, adding that three others had been sentenced to life in prison. Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the country's de facto leader, has been condemned internationally for the death and dismemberment of the Washington Post columnist, but he maintains he did not order the slaying.
Who got off? A former top adviser to the prince, Saud al-Qahtani, had been implicated but the official investigation cleared him.
OZY's Special Briefing examines the killing.
