US President Donald Trump’s nominee for secretary of state has faced tough questions from senators at a confirmation hearing.
Mike Pompeo was grilled on everything from Iran and North Korea to his views on Islamophobia – as well as the investigation into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 election.
The Senate will vote on his nomination later this month.
