France to take action if Saudi Arabia proves guilty of Khashoggi’s death

French President Emmanuel Macron told Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that France will take action against Riyadh if an investigation proves it was behind the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

In a press release late Wednesday, the president's office said the two leaders discussed by phone the investigation into Khashoggi's death. President Macron expressed his profound indignation and asked that light be shed on the circumstances of this tragedy.

Khashoggi, a harsh critic of the Saudi crown prince, disappeared during a visit to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, on October 2. After two weeks of denial, Riyadh admitted last week that Khashoggi was killed during a fight with people he met in the Saudi consulate, but did not give any explanation as to the cause of his death.
