In a major development The New York Times has reported that the Four members of the Saudi hit squad that killed US-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018 were trained in US.
According to the report the death squad received paramilitary training in the United States that had been approved by the State Department.
Khashoggi, a Saudi-born US resident who wrote for The Washington Post, was an outspoken critic of the Saudi leadership, with which he had once been close. He was murdered on October 2, 2018 in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul by a team of agents sent from Saudi Arabia.
Four of those operatives, The New York Times said, had received training from a private American security group, Tier 1 Group, a move first authorised by the administration of former president Barack Obama in 2014.
That training continued at least until the start of Donald Trump’s presidency, the newspaper said.
