U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday it would take a “handful more weeks” before the United States has enough evidence to impose sanctions in response to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last month.
Pompeo, in an interview with KMOX radio in St. Louis, said President Donald Trump had made it clear Washington would respond to the killing. He said the administration is “reviewing putting sanctions on the individuals that we have been able to identify to date that ... were engaged in that murder.”
