OSLO (Reuters) - Norway summoned the Saudi ambassador on Thursday over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Norwegian Foreign Minister said on Friday.

“We have raised the murder of Jamal Khashoggi and presented our point of view to the Saudi ambassador several times after it was known,” Ine Eriksen Soereide said in a statement.

“We underlined how seriously we take this issue again yesterday, when he was at the Foreign Ministry for a discussion.”
