Six senior U.S. senators from across party lines have introduced a resolution holding Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) personally accountable for the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Riyadh could "address those concerns" by extraditing the suspects to Turkey, the official said.

The handful of prominent Republicans who openly broke with the administration over Khashoggi's killing on Tuesday after receiving a briefing by Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel, included South Carolina Sen.

After that briefing, Graham threatened to withhold his vote on key legislation until he heard from Haspel.

The aircraft involved had launched from Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni and were conducting regularly scheduled training. The Marine Corps tweeted that the incident occurred at about 02:00 on Thursday (17:00 GMT Wednesday).

Senators in both parties have been enraged over the killing and over Trump's equivocating on who is to blame.

The 58-year-old Hollywood actor has been in Turkey working on the death of the Washington Post columnist who was critical of the Saudi crown prince.

Despite these heavy suspicions, the administration of President Donald Trump has sought to distance the Saudi leadership from the affair and insisted there is no direct proof Prince Mohammed ordered the killing.

The crown prince ordered and monitored the killing, Senator Bob Corker said.

Senator Richard Shelby, Republican of Alabama and the Appropriations Committee Chairman, echoed that "all evidence points to that, that all this leads back to the crown prince".

Actor Sean Penn is now in Turkey working on a documentary about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi iat the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, a story that's been a highly-debated topic in America for the last two months.

USA intelligence officials have concluded that the crown prince must have at least known of the plot, but Trump has been reluctant to pin the blame.

"There are lots of Republicans who are going to try to water this down, but they'll have to find 50 votes, and I'm not sure that they have 50 votes for a substitute". "Guilty. A guilty verdict", the senator said.

USA lawmakers eager to castigate Saudi Arabia for killing a journalist and its conduct of a military campaign in Yemen hope the Senate soon will pass one or more measures reflecting Washington's growing anger.
