WaPo Publisher Calls for Explanation About Jamal Khashoggi

Fred Ryan, Publisher and CEO of The Washington Post, made the following statement regarding Jamal Khashoggi:

“It has been two weeks since Jamal Khashoggi disappeared in the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul. The government of Saudi Arabia owes the Khashoggi family and the world a full and honest explanation of everything that happened to him, and we support the requests from Jamal’s family and the United Nations for an independent international investigation. The Saudi government can no longer remain silent, and it is essential that our own government and others push harder for the truth. Until we have a full account and full accountability, it cannot be business as usual with the Saudi Government.”
