Khashoggi Killed For Revealing Funding Source Of Anti-Iran TV Channel, Claims The Guardian Journalist

People take part in a candle light vigil to remember journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Jamal Khashoggi, the journalist who was killed in Saudi Arabia’s consulate in Istanbul, Turkey last month, may have lost his life after disclosing the funding source of an anti-Iran TV channel based in the United Kingdom, according to PressTV.

Following a terrorist attack in the Iranian city of Ahvaz, Iran International TV gave airtime to the spokesperson for the extremist separatist group that claimed responsibility for the attack.

Yacoub Hor al-Tostari praised the attack that killed at least two dozen people.

In a report published on Oct. 2, The Guardian cited a source close to Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman for claiming that the TV network based in Chiswick, west London received $ 250 million, or around £192 million, from the Saudi royal court per year.
