Senators blame Saudi prince for Khashoggi's death

UN urges international inquiry on Khashoggi killing

Top officials from the administration of President Donald Trump have said they've seen no direct evidence linking the murder to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, but the Central Intelligence Agency reportedly has found a connection. If he was indeed involved, this is the worst action he has ever taken. 23 October in Istanbul have discovered the remains of Khashoggi.

19 Oct Saudi Arabia confirmed that Khashoggi was killed in the Consulate of the country in Istanbul.

Turkey shared the audio tape of the killing with western North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and called on Saudi Arabia to reveal those truly culprit.

USA intelligence officials have concluded that the crown prince must have at least known of the plot, but Trump has been reluctant to pin the blame.

The private NTV broadcaster said the actor has been trying to gather detailed information on the scene to make a documentary about the murder of Khashoggi, a case that has sparked an worldwide outcry.

The journalist was a vocal critic of the kingdom's royal family.

A group of the US senators introduced a resolution on Wednesday urging the USA government to hold the crown prince accountable for a number of actions, including the Khashoggi killing and contributing to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen.

"There's a consensus among a lot of us that we want to suspend arms sales and stop support for the war - how do you best do that?" said Sen. Graham, who attended the briefing, told reporters afterward that there was "zero chance" the crown prince wasn't involved in Khashoggi's death.

Despite these heavy suspicions, the administration of President Donald Trump has sought to distance the Saudi leadership from the affair and insisted there is no direct proof Prince Mohammed ordered the killing.

Since President Trump has taken the opposite view, Mr.

Last week, the Senate overwhelmingly voted to move forward on a resolution curtailing USA backing for the Saudi-led war in Yemen.
