Hunt for body as Saudi admits Khashoggi died in Istanbul consulate

Breaking News

An hour later, another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold, which the senior official reiterated.

"We are not going to throw our hands in the air and terminate our relationship with Saudi Arabia, not just because of the huge number of British jobs that depend on it but also because if you exert influence over your partners you need to be able to talk to them", he said.

The crown prince has denied any involvement.

Saudi Arabia's account of the incident has changed multiple times. "All of this needs to be explained in all its details", Erdogan said.

Corker, who received a classified briefing on the case on Friday, said he was waiting for investigations to be completed and hoped that Turkey would share any audio tapes of the killing of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. The authorities initially dismissed reports that Khashoggi had gone missing inside the consulate as false and said he had left the building soon after entering. When the media reported a few days later that he had been killed there, they called the accusations "baseless". It said 18 Saudi nationals had been detained, and two top security officials fired.

The chancellor said Riyadh had not put the full facts of the Washington Post journalist's demise "on the table".

Germany's chancellor has demanded "transparency" from Riyadh over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi and the European Union foreign policy chief called it a "shocking violation" of global conventions as western condemnation grows over Saudi Arabia's handling of the affair.

A number of lawmakers, including Paul, have called for an end to arms sales to Saudi Arabia.

Sustained public pressure could also be enough to force the President's hand, he said, given that there seems to be no political upside to carrying water for Riyadh: "Is the foreign entanglement where you're defending Saudi Arabia really where you want to go?"

California Rep. Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House intelligence committee, said on ABC's "This Week" that the killing should be a "relationship-altering" event for the USA and Saudi Arabia, which has said it will retaliate against any economic sanctions or other moves against it.

Trump's comments about the Khashoggi incident in recent days have ranged from threatening Saudi Arabia with "very severe" consequences and warning of economic sanctions, to more conciliatory remarks in which he has played up the country's role as a United States ally against Iran and Islamist militants, as well as a major purchaser of U.S. arms.

Mr. Trump has previously said he is reluctant to punish Saudi Arabia because the country spends a lot of money on weapons from the United States.

Trump chose Saudi Arabia as his first overseas trip as president, and his son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner has developed close ties with Prince Mohammed, apparently seeing him as an ally in advancing his yet-to-be-released peace plan for Israel and the Palestinians.

After the McKinsey report was issued, one of the three was arrested, a second said the government arrested two of his brothers and hacked his cellphone, and the third Twitter account was shut down, according to The Times.
