No 'direct evidence' between Saudi Crown Prince and Khashoggi's killing: Pompeo

The presence of the targeted spyware on Mr Abdulaziz's phone means Saudi officials may have been able to read Khashoggi's messages.

If approved by the city council, the advisory commission's measure means a stretch of road going past the expansive embassy building in the upscale Foggy Bottom neighborhood would be ceremonially renamed "Jamal Khashoggi Way".

The president has said that the strategic relationship with Saudi Arabia and the benefit to the USA economy from Saudi arms purchases are too important to rupture over the killing of Khashoggi, which he has condemned.

Saudi Arabian Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir had admitted that the murder of the scribe was "a mistake and a rogue operation".

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman arrived in Algeria on Sunday from Mauritania, resuming a tour of Arab countries after attending the G20 summit in Argentina.

On Thursday, US President Donald Trump canceled his planned meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin because of this crisis. Moscow is concerned that civil conflict may break out in the whole of Ukraine following the declaration of martial law.

The remarkable participation of Prince Mohammed has blocked all efforts that had been exerted to take advantage of the summit to marginalize the Saudi role and complete the series of exaggeration of the story of the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

What does Saudi Arabia say?

Pompeo is a former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, which has reportedly concluded that Prince Mohammed ordered the murder.

Notably, the greeting came a day after the Russian state media said Putin would be discussing Khashoggi's murder with Prince Salman at the summit.

Speaking during her flight to Buenos Aires, May said she "intends" to speak with Mohammed bin Salman. Readouts of those meetings did not say whether Xi and Modi had confronted the prince over the Khashoggi case. In private, however, the Washington Post columnist didn't hold back and reprimanded the Saudi prince, CNN reported.

All eyes have been on the Saudi crown prince during the trip, which marks his first major overseas appearance since the killing of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October. President Trump "exchanged pleasantries" with the crown prince, according to a senior White House official, but there was no formal meeting scheduled between the two leaders.

Canada has been outspoken on human rights in Saudi Arabia, which has retaliated by breaking off diplomatic relations and vowing to end trade.

"On the issue of Yemen, we continue to be deeply concerned about the humanitarian situation", May said.

The prince has already met with several leaders, including Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte and Argentinian President Mauricio Macri.

Replying to a question on Saturday on whether the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) has a "high confidence" of the Saudi crown prince's alleged involvement, the US Secretary of State underlined, "I can't comment on intelligence matters".
