The U.S. State Department has publicly identified 16 people it says had “roles in the murder of Jamal Khashoggi,” the Saudi journalist who was killed in Turkey in October.

The 16 people and their immediate family members are now banned from U.S. soil, the State Department said in a Monday statement. Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who reportedly ordered the journalist’s assassination, was not among those named.

As AP noted, the list did include people with close ties to the crown prince, including his former aide Said al-Qahtani and Maher Mutreb, who’d been part of the royal’s entourage during foreign trips.
