    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says Turkey and Saudi Arabia will conduct full, transparent investigations over the alleged murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

    This came amid growing scepticism in the US Congress of repeated Saudi claims they had nothing to do with Khashoggi's disappearance.
