French foreign minister says killing of Saudi journalist grave crime

TUNIS (Reuters) - The killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was a grave crime which needs to be investigated to unearth the truth, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said on Monday.

When asked whether France could act like Germany, which has said it wants to stop arms exports to the kingdom while uncertainty over Khashoggi’s death persists, Le Drian said any response would come after the truth had been established.
