Turkey has been looking to extradite 18 suspects which include 15 of the alleged assassination group.

Arrest warrants have been issued by Istanbul's chief prosecutor against two Saudi men who worked as high level advisers to Saudi Arabia's leader, Mohammed bin Salman, as Turkey's investigation into the murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi widens.

The resolution was introduced by Sens. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said the crown prince was "complicit in the murder" of Khashoggi.

Saudi Arabia has sought to distance Prince Mohammed from the murder and has received support from the administration of US President Donald Trump, which has downplayed possible links between the crown prince and what happened to Khashoggi. "Because we've got a couple of very perplexing problems; the first is this and it's simple: We have to have a relationship with some players that we don't agree with".

"The current construct is not sustainable", Graham added.

Henzel said the administration condemned the action and it would continue to press for accountability. "There's a smoking saw", Graham said.

However, several reports have suggested that the Saudi prince was involved in the murder. The resolution also calls on Riyadh to negotiate with representatives of the Houthi movement in Yemen in an effort to end that country's bloody civil war and subsequent humanitarian crisis.

"In March 2015, Saudi Arabia instituted a naval and aerial blockade on Yemen, and now maintains strict limits on air and sea transit to the country which contribute to delays of critical humanitarian aid and commercial supplies to a nation that imports as much as 90 percent of its food and relies on imported fuel", the resolution reads. Blunt did attend a briefing on Khashoggi's death last month led by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary James Mattis.

US Senator Bob Corker, the current head of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, also said he is certain that MBS ordered Khashoggi's murder. He said finding a compromise will be hard because some lawmakers don't want to tie Yemen to the Khashoggi killing.

Saudi authorities say the agents who killed Khashoggi exceeded their authority. "All evidence points to that all this leads back to the crown prince", Shelby said. "Maybe he did and maybe he didn't!". Militarily, Saudi Arabia is a staunch ally and a buffer against Iranian military expansion.

"I think they are tired of him being the only person - they can not play anybody else against him - and that is, I think, one of the reasons that made the United States reaction to the murder greater, because now there is only one person to go to, there is only one address in Riyadh, and that is MBS".

The American actor will reportedly have meetings with Khashoggi's fiancée Hatice Cengiz and a few others who were close to the journalist.
