Khashoggi Murder:Canada sanctions 17 Saudi nationals

The resolution does not explicitly halt US arms sales to Saudi Arabia, as folks like Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Chris Murphy (D-Conn.).

Khashoggi was killed on 2 October in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The Senate voted 63-37 to pass the procedural vote, which will set up a floor debate on the resolution next week.

An all-Senate briefing by Defense Secretary James Mattis and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo earlier on Wednesday about Yemen and Saudi Arabia did little to convince senators to oppose the measure and instead seemed only to have pushed members to support it. After the report on the CIA's findings, the White House released a statement from the president that cast doubt on the crown prince's involvement, emphasized the importance of the US government's weapons deals with Saudi Arabia and the nations' shared opposition to Iran.

Joe Willock's pace and skill had the Vorskla defenders retreating and his first Arsenal goal was a very confident finish. His performance was lively, but as a striker he will be judged on the chances he takes - and those he squanders.

Several senators said they were angry about the absence of CIA Director Gina Haspel from the pre-vote briefing.

Graham, a Republican from SC, called the meeting "inadequate", and threatened to withhold his vote from all pending legislation - including a new government funding bill - until the Senate receives a Central Intelligence Agency briefing on the matter.

Sources in the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said, "In recent years, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has been a valuable partner".

World leaders have been under pressure to shun the Saudi crown prince during the G-20 summit, with some journalists, human rights groups and others calling for bin Salman, known as MBS, to be disallowed from attending the event.

"I think they just so mishandled how they could separate the murder, which they should deal with, with the larger strategy in Saudi Arabia and they got it completely wrong", he said.

"I have respects for the secretaries of state and defence but I don't need them to characterise the information of the CIA and intelligence community, I need to hear it directly", he added. "We don't believe the Human Rights Watch writ will prosper", said a spokesperson for the foreign minister, Jorge Faurie, who greeted the prince at the airport Wednesday. Saudi Arabia remained indifferent to calls from the global community, the increasing humanitarian price of the war and the fact that the battle would remain futile.

"This mechanism will be worked out shortly and we will expect that in the next two to three years there will be significant scaling up in the Saudi investments in India", Gokhale said.

Sen. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, called Haspel's absence "a cover-up".
