France ready to back 'international sanctions' against Khashoggi killers: Elysee Palace

Paris, Oct 25 (AFP) France is ready to support "international sanctions" against those responsible for the murder of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, the Elysee Palace said Wednesday after President Emmanuel Macron spoke by telephone to the kingdom's King Salman.

The French president "informed (King Salman) of his profound indignation at the crime and demanded that all possible light be shone on the circumstances that led to this drama" which many have blamed on Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the king's son and Saudi Arabia's de-facto leader, the palace said in a statement.
