USA: State Department to revoke visas of Saudi's implicated in Khashoggi killing

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced that the government will revoke visas for some of the Saudi nationals implicated in the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a press conference in Washington D.C. on Tuesday. The State Department will also review whether sanctions could be placed on the individuals in question. «These penalties will not be the last word on this matter from the... Еще United States, we will continue to explore additional measures to hold those responsible accountable,» Pompeo added. The visa revocations are the first punitive measures taken by the Trump administration against the Saudis since Khashoggi disappeared after entering the consulate on October 2. In the weeks following the journalist's disappearance, Saudi Arabia provided conflicting accounts of the journalist's fate before eventually admitting he died inside its Istanbul consulate during a «rogue operation». Turkish officials, including President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, believe he was slain in a «premeditated» and «political murder».
