According to the article, the video “shows men carrying what it says were a total of five (suit)cases through the main entrance of the residence, a short distance from the consulate where Khashoggi, a leading critic of Saudi policies, was killed in early October.” The residence in the video belongs to Saudi Arabia’s consul general.
