ACTIVISTS renamed the street outside the Saudi Arabian embassy in London as “Khashoggi Street” today to mark the one month anniversary of the journalist’s murder.
A mock street sign was put up near the gates of the building.
Jamal Khashoggi was reportedly strangled after entering the Saudi embassy in Istanbul last month, but the details of what happened is uncertain.
Amnesty International UK director Kate Allen said “Mr Khashoggi's killers and those who ordered his death need to be brought to justice.
“Contrary to claims made by the Saudi Crown Prince and others, Saudi Arabia hasn’t been ‘reforming,’ it’s been rounding up critics and activists in a brutal human rights crackdown," she added.
"The UK needs to completely reappraise its relationship with Saudi Arabia, moving on from its failed softly-softly ‘engagement’ approach to one where ministers raise human rights openly and frankly with their counterparts in Riyadh.
"One thing Britain urgently needs to do is halt all further arms sales to the Saudi Arabia and other members of the military coalition in Yemen."
