Jamal Khashoggi's killing was a tremendous mistake: Saudi Arabia

Jamal Khashoggi's killing was a tremendous mistake: Saudi Arabia

"This is a awful mistake", Jubeir told Fox News. Saudi officials called it a "rogue operation", but Western officials have demanded answers. Turkish officials, who are investigating, have said he was murdered and dismembered by a hit squad.

The journalist's fiancee Hatice Cengiz, who was waiting outside the consulate's front entrance and raised the alarm when he didn't return, was told by a consulate guard that he may have exited the building through the back door, Khashoggi's friend Turan Kislakci told CNN.

It's seen as a blow to Saudi Arabia and its 33-year-old Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's government has said Riyadh's explanation of Khashoggi's death is insufficient.

He said the Saudis did not know how Mr Khashoggi, a Saudi national and U.S. resident, had been killed or where his body was.

The crown prince has "now crossed a line and there has to be a punishment and a price paid for that", Corker said.

Khashoggi vanished after entering the consulate to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage.

Turkish officials told CNN that Saudi officials may have scrapped that plan after the Turkish government claimed to have proof that Khashoggi had been killed inside the embassy.

Trump told the Post that "something will take place" in response to Khashoggi's death, but said the United States should not let the incident disrupt a possible $110 billion weapons sale to Riyadh he announced a year ago.

"There remains an urgent need for clarification of exactly what happened ... beyond the hypotheses that have been raised so far in the Saudi investigation, which need to be backed by facts to be considered credible". "And we're obviously getting as many facts as we can from the different places".

The office of the Turkish presidency said early on Monday (Tuesday NZT) that Erdogan and US President Donald Trump had spoken by phone the night before and had agreed to "clear up the Jamal Khashoggi incident". It forms part of the wider investigation by Turkish officials into the events of that day and the continued interrogation and global questioning of Saudi Arabia's version of how the journalist died. Al-Madani had reportedly been a member of the 15-person team sent from Saudi Arabia to intercept Khashoggi.

"The individuals who did this did this outside the scope of their authority", he said.

Speaking to supporters on Sunday in Istanbul, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey is seeking justice and that he will "go into detail" in a speech to ruling party members in parliament.

Turkey's official news agency says the fiancée of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi has been given 24-hour police protection.

Mnuchin's meeting with the Crown Prince comes just two weeks after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also traveled to Riyadh to meet with the Crown Prince. "I am not satisfied with what I've heard". But it was a big first step, it was a good first step.

The Trump administration says it is continuing to weigh how to respond to the escalating diplomatic crisis with one of its closest allies. They are said to have threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and then killed him in a chokehold when he resisted.

Altmaier told ZDF television that a joint EU position is needed "because only if all European countries agree, this will make an impression on the government in Riyadh". But al-Jubeir said these "were not people closely tied to him", although news accounts have said that several Saudi security officials close to Mohammed were involved.

Kushner also dismissed reporting claiming he pressed the president to give the Saudis more time and space to complete their investigation, a move the president's critics said could give Saudis more time to concoct a story.
