U.S. imposes sanctions for Khashoggi killing, Saudis seek death penalty

U.S. imposes sanctions for Khashoggi killing, Saudis seek death penaltyThe U.S. Treasury Department sanctions were the first concrete response by the Trump administration to Khashoggi’s death in the Saudi consulate in Turkey in October. Among those sanctioned were Saud al-Qahtani, who has been removed from his position as a top aide to the powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, as well as the Saudi Consul General Mohammad al-Otaibi and members of a 15-person team Turkey has identified as being involved. The measure was unusual for Washington, which rarely imposes sanctions on Saudi nationals.
