Senators say they are intent on punishing Saudi Arabia for role in Khashoggi killing

Saturday 01:32 GMT

Supporters of bipartisan legislation designed to strongly rebuke Saudi Arabia for the role its Crown Prince, Mohammed bin Salman, allegedly played in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, say they believe they have secured enough votes for final passage.

A sizable number of senators on both sides of the aisle have rejected the administration's handling of the Khashoggi killing. The president has said he is not certain that MBS killed Khashoggi, and his secretaries of Defense and State told reporters last week that there is no definitive proof the Saudi crown prince is to blame.
