Trump vows ‘severe punishment’ if Saudis killed Jamal Khashoggi

Is it a strong warning or an empty one? Donald Trump has said he will get to the bottom of what happened to Jamal Khashoggi and there will be “severe punishment” if Saudi Arabia murdered him. They deny it. The journalist – who is fiercely critical of the Kingdom’s rulers, disappeared after visiting a Saudi consulate in Turkey to get documents. Turkish officials claim to have recordings – possibly uploaded from his smartwatch – proving he was killed inside the building.
