Donald Trump, Congress set for Saudi Arabia showdown over Jamal Khashoggi killing

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al Jubeir said the murder was carried out by Saudi officials

WASHINGTON: Saudi Foreign Minister Adelal-jubeir said they still have not clue about Jamal Khashoggi´s body, he made this remarks during an interview broadcast Sunday.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers, including Democratic Sen. It alleged US intelligence agencies intercepted a 2017 conversation between Aldakhil and Mohammed bin Salman in which the crown prince threatened to kill Khashoggi if he did not stop criticizing the Saudi government and return to the kingdom.

The dissident journalist was dismembered after his murder in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, but his remains have yet to be found, AFP said. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., introduced legislation Friday that would prohibit certain arms sales to Saudi Arabia in response to the killing of Khashoggi and the Saudis' role in Yemen.

Adel al-Jubeir, Saudi minister of state for foreign affairs, said the murder was carried out by Saudi officials "acting outside their scope of authority" and that 11 people have been charged with the crime.

Murphy said lawmakers could go to court to try to make the president comply, or they can move forward with their own list of sanctions.

"I call on the administration to immediately comply with the requirements of the law, and to provide Congress with the information required", he said.

Saudi Arabia has said the crown prince, who is the kingdom's 33-year-old de facto ruler, was not aware of any plan to kill him.

Four months on, the slain journalist's body has still not been recovered.

The crown prince's belongings, including his exercise equipment and furniture, reached Islamabad in five trucks, the Dawn News reported quoting Saudi Embassy sources.

Mr. Al Jubeir called USA criticism of Saudi leadership "a red line".

The Trump administration pushed back Monday against allegations that it was trying to cover up the killing of Saudi columnist Jamal Khashoggi when it failed to send Congress a report determining who was responsible for his death.
