He said there were many options short of war with Iran, which denies involvement in the Sept.

Trump ordered increased sanctions on Tehran.

"This is an attack of a scale we've just not seen before," Pompeo told reporters before landing in Jeddah for talks with Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman on Wednesday.
