U.S. to revoke visas of Saudis implicated in killing of writer

This year's summit has been overshadowed by Khashoggi's killing on October 2.

Members of Congress have demanded that sanctions be imposed on Saudi Arabia over the killing of Mr Khashoggi, who lived in self-imposed exile in the U.S. and wrote critically about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman. Mr Erdogan made no reference to any audio recording.

Saudi Arabia has consistently denied that the crown prince was involved in the killing of Khashoggi. "I believe it is painful for every human in the world", he said.

Mr Trump said he would work with the US Congress to determine the US response to the Khashoggi matter.

The images, released by the Saudi Press Agency, were accompanied by a statement claiming Salah Khashoggi "expressed [his] great thanks to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques and His Royal Highness the Crown Prince for their consolation on the death of the deceased".

But in November past year, Hariri announced he was stepping down in a televised address from the Saudi capital, causing observers to speculate he was being held against his will.

"When I last spoke to Jamal in May, he complained about the increasing use of travel bans, describing them as the "favourite form of punishment" used by MBS against families of critics", Morris tweeted.

"We continue to view as achievable the twin imperative of protecting America and holding accountable those responsible for the killing of Mr. Khashoggi", Mr Pompeo said. He was told he would need to return later to collect the documents. The whereabouts of Khashoggi's corpse still remain unknown.

Karen Attiah, the global opinion editor at The Post, has been particularly vocal about the situation for Khashoggi's four children, three of whom, she said, have dual United States citizenship.

Saudi officials said he was accidentally strangled after getting into a fistfight with a Saudi security team. British Prime Minister Theresa May said its Saudi arms sales were "under review", a stance similar to that expressed by Australia.

"We have strong signs that the murder was the result of a planned operation, not a spontaneous development".

Meanwhile, Pence said he wants "to assure the American people that we're going to get to the bottom of it".

Here is, according to Erdogan, how the murder plot unfolded leading up to and including the day of the murder. Erdogan asked. "We are seeking answers to this".

It's not clear who would actually receive the money if penalties had to be paid for breaking the contract: Saudi Arabia or General Dynamics Land Systems, whose plant in London, Ont., is building the light-armoured vehicles, or LAVs.

However, Erdogan said he was not satisfied with Saudi Arabia blaming some of its intelligence agents for the killing, and called for suspects to be tried in Istanbul.
