As the US continues to gather information on the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the US secretary of state has said that 21 Saudi visas already revoked would not be the last word on the matter.

    US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo says it will be several weeks before any possible sanctions are imposed on Saudi Arabia over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

    He was murdered at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul a month ago.

    The Washington Post reported that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman told senior Trump administration officials that Khashoggi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood and was dangerous, although later, in public, the crown prince described the killing as a "terrible mistake".
