Senate blames Saud is for Khashoggi death
THE US Senate has passed a resolution saying Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the slaying of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
Senators unanimously passed a resolution on Thursday. It calls for the Saudi Arabian government to “ensure appropriate accountability”.
It is unclear whether the House will consider the measure. Senators voted on it after President Donald Trump equivocated on who is to blame for Khashoggi’s death. US intelligence officials have concluded that the crown prince must have at least known of the plot.
Passage of the resolution came after senators passed a separate measure calling for the end of US aid to the Saudi-led war in Yemen. |
