 Pompeo commits U.S. to finding, punishing those behind Saudi journalists murder

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told a congressional hearing on Wednesday that the Trump administration is still working "all across the government" to identify and hold accountable anyone responsible for the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Questioned at a House of Representatives hearing, Pompeo said he would commit to holding anyone accountable who was found to be responsible, even the most senior officials, a reference to Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
