Saudis don't know where Khashoggi's body is, says official

"We are focusing on giving foolproof security to the Crown Prince and his delegation, said the interior ministry official".

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

"America is not covering up for murder", Pompeo said, pledging that the United States would take action to ensure those responsible for Khashoggi's death were held accountable.

President Donald Trump, rejecting his own intelligence officials' findings, has apparently chosen to believe MBS' claim that he played no role in the gruesome murder of Khashoggi, a critic of the Saudi royal family who was killed after entering a Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2, 2018.

This will be Prince Mohammed s first-ever visit to Pakistan as the crown prince.

Pompeo said that Trump's administration was "working diligently" on its investigation.

Saudi officials say 11 people have been charged so far in relation to the case - including five people who are facing the death penalty - and that an investigation remains ongoing.

The New York Times on Friday published a report that alleged MBS had told an aide in 2017 that he would "use a bullet" on Khashoggi.

Dorsey added that the Browns have given Hunt "detailed plans with expectations laid out that he understands and must follow". Browns general manager John Dorsey drafted Hunt out of Toledo and has been in contact with him during an ongoing suspension.

A senior administration official told the AP that the State Department regularly updates Congress on the status of the case and that the US government will continue to work to hold accountable those responsible for the death. There was no order given to murder Jamal Khashoggi.

Citing unidentified current and former US intelligence officials, it said the 2017 conversation was intercepted by USA spy agencies.

US lawmakers, Democrats and some of Trump's fellow Republicans, have sought a strong response by Washington to Khashoggi's murder and to the humanitarian crisis in Yemen, where a Saudi-led coalition is fighting Iran-backed Houthi rebels.

Following this exchange, Jubeir was asked why those in custody couldn't tell where the body was and he responded by saying that they were still investigating.

"When I do this job, I listen to music".

Madani and Harbi were part of the hit squad that kill Khashoggi, according to a MEE report, and the USA imposed sanctions on them in November. "I've said we have been briefed on this matter numerous times, met with not all of the 17 intelligence agencies, but a good number of the intelligence agencies".

Ahead of that deadline, a bipartisan group of senators led by Menendez reintroduced legislation that would block some US arms sales to Saudi Arabia in an effort to hold the Kingdom accountable.
