The United Arab Emirates on Saturday backed Saudi Arabia's statement about the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the official news agency WAM said.

The Gulf Arab state "commends directives and decisions of Saudi King Salman on the issue of Kashoggi," WAM said on Twitter.

Saudi Arabia has said that Khashoggi, a prominent journalist, died in a fight inside its Istanbul consulate - after two weeks of denials that it had anything to do with his disappearance - and dismissed five officials over the incident.
