U.S. lawmakers have called on Washington to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at one of the country’s consulates in Turkey.
They asked that Congress should act if the Trump administration does not.
More than a dozen senators and members of the House of Representatives, including both Democrats and Republicans, spoke at an event in the U.S. Capitol complex to celebrate a free press and remember Khashoggi and more than 50 other journalists killed around the world last year.
Democrats deplored the lack of a strong response to Khashoggi’s death from President Donald Trump’s administration, saying strategic or commercial ties to Saudi Arabia should not triumph over democratic values like free expression.
