The US have taking the First Action in the Saudi Arabia Journalist Killing and says it will withdraw Visas of Saudis Implicated in Khashoggi Death.

Mike Pompeo said on Tuesday that the US will revoke the visas of some Saudi officials who are reportedly nvolved in the brutal killing of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi.

The secretary of state made the pronouncement during a press conference just moments after President Trump called the slaying “one of the worst cover-ups.”

“These penalties will not be the last word on the matter from the United States,” Pompeo said about withdrawing the visas.

“We’re making very clear that the United States does not tolerate this kind of ruthless action to silence Mr. Khashoggi, a journalist, through violence.”

The Saudi government reported on Friday that it has detained 18 Saudi nationals responsible for killing Khashoggi inside the regime’s Istanbul consulate.

However, the Saudis claim the death was as a result of an accident.
