"America's taken more action in response to the tragic murder of Jamal Khashoggi, and will continue to take more actions and continue our investigation", Pompeo told reporters during a press gaggle in Budapest, Hungary. He said imposing sanctions now would be "putting the cart before the horse".

The Minister was reported to have said that murder was carried out by the officials "acting outside their scope of authority" and that 11 people have been charged with the crime.

After initially denying his death, Saudi Arabia has confirmed that its agents killed him but denied its senior leaders were behind the killing.
