US Sanctions 17 Saudi Officials for Jamal Khashoggi's Death

The U.S. is sanctioning 17 people it says had a role in the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The  Treasury Department announced  the measure Thursday, saying all 17 are government officials from Saudi Arabia who were part of the team responsible for Khashoggi's death.

He was killed Oct.

2 inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.  In a statement, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said, "These individuals who targeted and brutally killed a journalist who resided and worked in the United States must face consequences for their actions." Also on Thursday, Saudi Arabia's public prosecutor said 11 people have been indicted for the journalist's death, and the country plans to seek the death penalty for five of them.

But the prosecutor didn't release any of the suspect's names.  But the Saudi investigation deserves skepticism.

The country  changed its story  multiple times before ultimately admitting Khashoggi had died.

Turkish officials have been calling for an international investigation.  Additional reporting from  Newsy affiliate CNN .
