    ROME - The family of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was assassinated and cut into pieces in October 2018 in Riyadh's consulate in Istanbul, announced late Thursday that they had ''pardoned'' his killers.

    Salah Khashoggi, the son of the Washington Post op-ed writer, posted the statement on social networks. Hatice Cengiz, the Turkish fiancee of the journalist, responded on Twitter that ''Jamal Khashoggi has become an international symbol bigger than any of us, admired and loved.

    His ambush and heinous murder does not have a statue of limitations and no one has the right to pardon his killers''. ''Jamal was killed inside his country's consulate while getting the docs to complete our marriage. The killers came from Saudi with premeditation to lure, ambush & kill him. Nobody has the right to pardon the killers. We will not pardon the killers nor those who ordered the killing,'' she added.
