Senate resolution would blame Saudis for journalist’s death


A bipartisan group of senators is introducing a measure that says Saudi Arabia’s crown prince is “complicit” in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The resolution is largely symbolic, but it registers the Senate’s unrest with the killing and the Trump administration’s response. It’s among several measures being considered after a closed CIA briefing on Capitol Hill.

Introduced by a top ally of President Donald Trump, Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham, and by Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the resolution says the Senate “has a high level of confidence” that the crown prince “was complicit in the murder.”

Khashoggi was killed at the Saudi consulate in Turkey after arriving for routine paperwork.

2 US warplanes crash off Japan; 1 rescued, 6 missing


A Marine refueling plane and a fighter jet crashed into the Pacific Ocean off Japan’s southwestern coast after a midair collision early today, and rescuers found one of the seven crew members in stable condition while searching for the others, officials said.

The U.S. Marine Corps said the crash involved an F/A-18 fighter jet and a KC-130 refueling aircraft during regular training after the planes took off from their base in Iwakuni, near Hiroshima in western Japan.

The crash took place 200 miles off the coast.

Japan’s Defense Ministry said the aircraft carrying seven crew members in total collided and crashed into the sea south of the Muroto Cape on Shikoku island in southwestern Japan.
