Ahead of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan’s visit to Saudi Arabia, a Turkish court has ruled to halt the trial of Saudi suspects over the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi and transferred it to Saudi Arabia. Khashoggi, who was a prominent critic of Saudi crown prince Mohammed Bin Salman, was brutally murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October 2018. The Turkish government back then had called for an international trial in the high-profile murder case.
