Pompeo says US will revoke visas of Saudi officials linked to Khashoggi’s death | Fox News

The U.S. is revoking visas of some of the Saudi Arabian officials involved in the murder of writer Jamal Khashoggi.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said at a news conference Tuesday said the U.S. has identified people implicated in Khashoggi’s death — “including those in the intelligence services, the royal court, the foreign ministry and other Saudi ministries” — and is working to hold them accountable.

The State Department is revoking visas and taking other measures in the wake of the ordeal.

“We’re making very clear that the United States does not tolerate this kind of ruthless action to silence Khashoggi, a journalist, through violence,” Pompeo told reporters. “Neither the president nor I am happy with this situation.”
