“A street in front of the Saudi embassy in Washington DC has been renamed after Jamal Khashoggi, whose murder by Saudi agents caused shock around the world. The local government in the US capital said it had changed the name to Jamal Khashoggi Way to ensure the dissident’s memory ‘cannot be covered up’. US intelligence concluded that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman approved the killing. He denied this. Next month, he will hold his first talks with US President Joe Biden. Human rights activists, members of the US Congress and local councillors gathered outside the embassy on New Hampshire Avenue for the street sign unveiling.” (06/16/22)
