Salah bin Jamal Khashoggi, the son of murdered dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has left Saudi Arabia.

Khashoggi's son was previously unable to leave Saudi Arabia after his passport was restricted by the kingdom some months ago, reported CNN.

On Tuesday, Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud and crown prince Mohammed bin Salman met Khashoggi's son and his relative Sahl Ahmed Khashoggi at the Al Yamamah Palace in Riyadh and condoled journalist's demise.

In the latest development in the investigation of the murder case, Saudi's Attorney General Shaikh Suood bin Abdullah Al Mo'jab confirmed that journalist's killing was pre-meditated.

"The public prosecution received information from the Turkish side through the Joint Working Group between the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the Turkish Republic, indicating that the suspects in Khashoggi's case premeditated their crime," Al Mo'jab stated.

The report also claims that Khashoggi was murdered by a group of men who had close relations with the Saudi's crown prince.
