Jamal Khashoggi murder trial halted in Turkey


ISTANBUL — An Istanbul court on Thursday suspended the murder trial in Turkey of Saudi security officials accused of killing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as Ankara moved to improve relations with the kingdom.

The court granted a request by prosecutors to refer the case to Saudi authorities, where a separate trial sentenced eight lower-level officials to prison for the murder but spared senior leaders from accountability.
