WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is “deeply troubled” by the confirmation by Riyadh of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi’s death, a United Nations spokesman said on Friday.

The U.N. chief called for a “prompt, thorough, transparent” probe into the circumstances of Khashoggi’s death and urged full accountability for those who were involved.
