image for Saudi Arabia Promises To Retrieve Body For Funeral Of Jamal Khashoggi
The Saudi Arabian story so far

There was more controversy in the Jamal Khashoggi situation today, when the Washington Post contributor's fiancée asked for her betrothed's body to be returned for burial.

Mr Khashoggi entered the Saudi Arabian consulate on 2 October, and died, innocuously enough after a fist fight, which caused his body to vaporize.

Miss Hatice Cengiz, who was to marry Mr Khashoggi, once he'd received clearance from the consulate to do so, was told that his body could:

"not be located at the present time."

Saudi officials, presumed to be acting on orders from the Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, have said that they are doing everything they can to track down Mr Khashoggi's body. If this is not possible, however, they say they are confident of being able to supply a substitute dead body of a similar size to Mr Khashoggi, and need only about 12 hours' notice to do so.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
