Qatar may benefit from Khashoggi fallout: analysts

Qatar may benefit from Khashoggi fallout: analystsGlobal diplomatic fallout from the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Saudi Arabia's Istanbul consulate may help Qatar in its political stand-off with the kingdom, experts said. The backlash may force Riyadh to ease sweeping sanctions imposed on Doha since the dispute erupted between the former Gulf allies in June 2017. The killing of Khashoggi -- who was critical of the Saudi government and its blockade of Qatar -- may convince sceptics that Doha's claims of Saudi "aggression" were justified, according to analysts.
