Twitter/YusufErimJeff Bezos, the owner of The Washington Post, arrives at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday for a vigil marking one year since the writer Jamal Khashoggi was killed there.

Jeff Bezos, the owner of The Washington Post, attended a vigil at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Wednesday for the journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who was killed there one year ago.

Several governments, including the US, concluded that Khashoggi, a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was murdered by Saudi agents on October 2, 2018, after he entered the consulate to collect marriage paperwork.

The political analyst and journalist Yusuf Erim filmed Bezos exiting a black car and entering the building, which was reportedly sold earlier this year.

Khashoggi wrote articles criticising the Saudi crown prince for The Post, which Bezos bought in 2013 for $US250 million.

Bezos, who also owns Amazon, has never publicly commented on Khashoggi’s death.

The Jamal Khashoggi Memorial Event started at 1:14 p.m. local time (5:14 a.m. ET) on Wednesday – the exact time Khashoggi went inside.
