The worsening humanitarian crisis in Yemen also played a role in senators' frustration with the ongoing war there, in which the United States is supplying Saudi Arabia with weapons and support to fight Yemeni troops.

Khashoggi, a Saudi journalist working for The Washington Post, was killed shortly after he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

Wednesday's procedural vote sets up a floor debate on the resolution next week.

Senators could vote on a bipartisan resolution to end U.S. military support for the Saudi-led coalition this week.

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman was not on the list of the 17 individuals sanctioned by Canada.

The three-year war has caused a massive humanitarian crisis.

Hundreds of Tunisians staged the first demonstrations in the Arab world against Saudi Arabia's crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, on his visit on Tuesday, denouncing him as a murderer involved in the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Anger was abundant on Capitol Hill because neither CIA Director Gina Haspel nor any representative from the CIA were present to brief the members.

Graham, a Republican from SC, called the meeting "inadequate", and threatened to withhold his vote from all pending legislation - including a new government funding bill - until the Senate receives a Central Intelligence Agency briefing on the matter.

The resumption of funding is also in line with King Salman's intervention in the a year ago insisting that the kingdom was committed to Palestinian rights, including declaring East Jerusalem as the capital of the Palestinian state.

Speaking to reporters after he addressed the senate, Pompeo repeated administration claims that there was no direct evidence connecting Prince Mohamed to Khashoggi's murder. Saudi Arabia remained indifferent to calls from the worldwide community, the increasing humanitarian price of the war and the fact that the battle would remain futile.

On Wednesday a source said that the court had accepted the writ, and a prosecutor had asked a judge to determine if either Saudi Arabia or Yemen are investigating the prince for possible crimes against humanity. Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said the trilateral meeting with PM Modi will be held towards the end of the Trump-Abe talks which is part of the series of the meetings the US President will hold during the two days. Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) said before the vote.

Senior politicians from both parties rebuffed the Trump administration's attempt to placate lawmakers demanding action against Saudi Arabia.
