LONDON (Reuters) - British foreign minister Jeremy Hunt said on Monday it was not credible for Saudi authorities to claim that journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in a fight.

“The claim that Mr Khashoggi died in a fight does not amount to a credible explanation,” Hunt told parliament.

He also said any British response to the case would need to wait for the outcome of an investigation.
