image for 'I can't breathe': Transcript of recording details Khashoggi's final moments before murder

Amid international concern about the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, some 200 protesters gathered in central Tunis to protest crown prince Mohammed bin Salman's arrival for talks with the Tunisian president.

Dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is heard repeatedly saying “I can’t breathe’’ in the horrific final moments before his death on Oct. 2 in Turkey, according to a report Monday.

Khashoggi, a columnist for the Washington Post, did not die as a result of a confrontation gone bad as Saudi Arabian officials have claimed.

But he was instead the victim of a planned execution, CNN reported, citing a source who read a translated transcript of an audio recording.

Khashoggi appears to still be alive when screams, gasps and the sound of a saw are heard on the audiotape, the source told CNN.

Turkish officials, who had the original copy of the recording, have said Khashoggi’s body was dismembered with a bone saw.

The CNN source also said the transcript indicates phone calls were made, presumably updating high-level figures in the Saudi government on the proceedings. »

But welcoming the report was too strong a message for the United States and other nations that oppose climate action.

“As we have made clear in the IPCC and other bodies, the United States has not endorsed the findings of the report.”.

It is the fossil-fueled triumvirate of Trump, Putin, and Saudi Arabia who have colluded to sell out the future of this planet for their own short-term financial gain.”. »
