US says Saudi prince approved Khashoggi murder but spares him sanctions

The release of a US intelligence report on the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi is "an important step for accountability," says Sarah Leah Whitson, executive director of Democracy for the Arab World Now (DAWN), a group that was founded by Khashoggi. Dr. Kelly McFarland, director of programs and research at the Institute for the Study of Diplomacy at Georgetown University's Walsh School of Foreign Service in Washington DC, says the relationship between the United States and Saudi Arabia will likely go through "a rougher patch" over the next few years.
