Saudi Arabian Video Shows Cleaning Crew Entering Embassy
Video of a cleaning crew entering Saudi Arabia’s Turkish embassy has emerged, prompting new speculation that Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s murder took place inside the embassy.
The video eerily shows cleaners entering the building with buckets, mops, and containers. The cleaners timing is questionable because their entry took place only hours before investigators entering the premises.
Investigators from both Ankara and Riyadh were to search the premises for clues and evidence following the global outrage over Khashoggi’s disappearance.
Two women and one man enter the embassy under supervision.

Saudi Arabia is reportedly near admitting that Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s death was in fact, a result of harsh interrogations which went amiss.
Khashoggi is known for his harsh criticism of Saudi Arabian government officials in publications such as The Washington Post.
The circumstances surrounding Khashoggi’s likely death resulted in immediate turbulent relations between The United States and its most significant provider of oil.
President Trump says he will not cease selling arms to the country, fearing that they will begin purchasing arms from Russia, China.
As it stands, it appears that President Trump intends to keep relations with the Saudis in decent shape. But only time, and details, will reveal the larger implications of a potential global strain.
