President Donald Trump has said the US will not levy additional punitive measures at this time against Saudi Arabia over the killing of Jamal Khashoggi.

Mr Trump said in a statement that the US does not condone the killing of the US-based Saudi columnist, but that “foolishly” cancelling 110 billion dollars in arms sales, as some in Congress have suggested, would only mean that Saudi Arabia would go to other countries to acquire them.
