Washington Post Journalist murdered at Saudi Consulate The alleged killing of Saudi-American journalist has raised concerns regarding US-Saudi relations BY ISABELLE HOOVER writer

On Oct.2 a prominent Saudi-American reporter, Jamal Khashoggi, walked into the country’s consulate in Istanbul where he would later be murdered. Khashoggi is well known for covering many “The President Recep controversial stories, like the has exclaimed that Russian invasion into Afghanistan. there is evidence He even had that his murder written a story was ‘savage’ and about his fear of being arrested ‘planned out days in by the Saudi advance.’” Prince due to becoming, “First in line to succeed his father, King Salman,” according to BBC News. According to records, he was, “at the consulate to



obtain documents that would allow him to remarry.” The Crown Prince even insisted during an interview with Bloomberg News that Khashoggi left the consulate, “After a few minutes, or an hour.” A few weeks late, however, Saudi Arabia’s public prosecutor came out and said that the journalist was “killed inside the building on the instructions of a rogue intelligence officer”, as explained on BBC News. BBC News, however, also states that according to Turkish Officials, they “Have evidence, including gruesome audio that the journalist was killed by a team of Saudi agents on orders that came from the highest level.” Moving forward his body is yet to be found. Saudi officials have given out various conflicting statements on what happened that day. For example, that, “Khashoggi had died in a chokehold after resisting attempts to return him to Saudi Arabia”. A few months later they said, “Khashoggi was given a lethal injection after a struggle and his body was dismembered inside the consulate after his death. The body parts were then handed over

to a local ‘collaborator’ outside the grounds.” Turkish government officials, however, have different thoughts on what happened. The President Recep has exclaimed that there is evidence his murder was “savage” and “planned out days in advance.” They have also told press that Jamal Khashoggi’s murder was an order from the highest powers, but it is very unlikely that King Salman gave them. With all of the conflicting statements and various accusations it’s hard to know what really happened Khashoggi JAMAL KHASHOGGI surrounding hismurder. He was, however, an honest and well respected reporter who will be missed.

Bring Your Pet To College Furry friends are finally allowed to join their humans in college BY MICAH PORTER features editor

allowing pets on campus is negligence of animals, hygienic issues, and of course, the noise. Macmurray claimed, “I, for one, would be a little bit nervous staying in the Jane Failing hall. I would be worried that my roommate’s dog would keep me up all night.” But for students willing to substitute a good night’s sleep for a fluffy dorm friend, the pet dorm CAROLINE MCMURRAY

They’re fuzzy, fun and full of energy. And for Linfield College, cats and dogs play a crucial role in shaping the relaxed environment that the campus strives to promote. For years, our furry friends have been rejected from residing in the dorms, due to obviously primitive hygiene methods. Linfield College , however, has recently announced that the long upheld policy of no pets will be rectified, allowing owners and pets to live in harmonious accord within the confines of the Jane Failing Residence Hall. The only stipulation to the recent policy is that all pets must be at least six months old and weigh under forty pounds. This unconventional policy derives from the college’s initiative to create a more welcoming, comfortable learning environment for students. Caroline McMurray, a Linfield junior is excited about the prospects that this new policy holds. MacMurray said, “I am a big fan of the new pet policy. It’s cool how they are letting pet owners bring their pets to college, it really contributes to the comfortable environment that Linfield strives for.” The students, as a collective, are excited that the administrators are taking steps to improve the climate, and they are curious what new policies are soon to arrive. The only foreseeable issue with

might be the right choice. This year will act as a trial to see how dogs and cats do on campus, and if all goes well, we may see an influx of a variety of critters patrolling Linfield’s greenway. MacMurray, and many other Linfield students, simply hope to have graduated by the time the college decides to grant access to reptiles. The Bruin January 23, 2019 5
