TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) - A foreign affairs columnist for The Washington Post will be the inaugural speaker at an annual Indiana State University address honoring slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Columnist David Ignatius will deliver a speech Tuesday at the Terre Haute campus' Tilson Auditorium titled "How to fix the world: The future of foreign policy." It's free and open to the public.

Khashoggi received an ISU degree in business administration in 1983. He later became a Washington Post columnist and a critic of Saudi Arabia's regime.

Khashoggi was killed last October when he visited Saudi Arabia's consulate in Turkey for paperwork so he could get married.

Ignatius says his late colleague "represented the dream that many millions of Arabs have for a more open society and a journalism that tells the truth."
