Jamal Khashoggi was barred from writing in Saudi Arabia after he criticised Trump, then left his native country

Jamal Khashoggi was barred from writing and making public appearances by the Saudi royal family after he criticised President Donald Trump in late 2016.

Khashoggi became a US resident and wrote for The Washington Post, continuing to criticise the kingdom’s policies from afar.

Khashoggi went missing after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul earlier this month and is feared dead.
