WASHINGTON: A top Senate ally of President Donald Trump warned Monday of a “devastating” impact on the US alliance with Saudi Arabia if allegations are confirmed that the kingdom killed a prominent journalist, reports AFP.

Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said Riyadh must provide “honest answers” after a Turkish government source said that the Saudis killed Washington Post opinion contributor Jamal Khashoggi when he visited the kingdom’s consulate in Istanbul.

Graham said his position was shared by Bob Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and Ben Cardin, a senior Democrat on the panel.
