CNN has released a bombshell video that shows the Saudi government attempting to use a body double to cover up the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The footage was collected by Turkish authorities and shows a man dressed in Khashoggi’s clothing. The man leaves the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and then drives to Sultan Ahmed Mosque which is a very busy tourist attraction.
Security camera footage shot around the mosque captured Khashoggi’s body double going into a bathroom, then leaving the bathroom wearing different clothes.
Additional cameras show the body double later in the day at his hotel with his accomplice, where they appeared “visibly relaxed,” according to Clarissa Ward of CNN..
