Khashoggi’s editor: His personal and professional battle

This week we speak to Karen Attiah, Jamal Khashoggi's editor at The Washington Post, as questions continue to linger over the Saudi journalist's murder.

Attiah shares her memories of Khashoggi and voices hope that his murder will not go unpunished.
