Pompeo returns to Saudi over Khashoggi murder

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has returned to Saudi Arabia to meet its king and crown prince.

And, it appears that the investigation into journalist Jamal Khashoggi's death was near the top of the agenda -- or more specifically bringing those responsible to account.

But when he spoke to reporters later the secretary only said that the investigative process was ongoing.

The CIA itself -- which Pompeo used to lead -- believes Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the killing of the Washington Post columnist.

And, although there's been almost two dozen arrests and five are facing the death penalty, the prince has always denied involvement.

The killing also focused more attention on Saudi Arabia's involvement in Yemen's civil war.

Pompeo said that during his meeting the Saudi leaders agreed to stick agreements made to end the nearly four-year conflict.

Pompeo will end his Middle East tour with a brief stop in Oman.

A trip to Kuwait was cut short due to a death in his family.
