(Worthy News) - US President Donald Trump said Saturday he was not satisfied with Saudi Arabia’s response to a dissident journalist’s death, but warned against scrapping a multibillion-dollar deal with the conservative kingdom.

Saudi Arabia has admitted that critic Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside its Istanbul consulate after a physical altercation, in a major dialing back of two weeks of denials, but the whereabouts of his body remain unclear.

It said 18 Saudis have been arrested in connection with his death and two top aides of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, as well as three other intelligence agents, have been sacked. [ Source: Times of Israel (Read More...) ]

  1. Khashoggi was killed in Turkey ....... Turkey has an alliance with Iran. Are Turkey and Iran trying to drive a wedge between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia? Well, that's what can result if the U.S. believes that Saudi Arabia killed Khashoggi.
    Let's pray.
