French police arrest man in connection with Jamal Khashoggi killing

The Guardian says French police have arrested a man on suspicion of being a former member of the Saudi royal guard accused of being involved in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The man, named as Khalid Aedh al-Otaibi, was taken into custody at Paris’s Charles de Gaulle airport as he was about to board a plane to the Saudi capital, Riyadh.

In a statement on Twitter, the Saudi embassy in Paris said that the arrest was a case of mistaken identity, adding that those convicted of the crime were currently serving their sentence in Saudi Arabia. “The Kingdom’s embassy expects his immediate release,” it said.
