Saudi explanation of Khashoggi death not 'credible': United Kingdom minister

"This is far from the end and we need to keep up the global pressure". It said the suspects later tried to cover up the incident. Numerous men have ties to the Saudi military and security services.

Riyadh on Saturday announced the arrest of 18 Saudis and the sacking of two top aides of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, as part of its "probe" into the killing.

And while he described the crown prince's vision for the future as "impressive", Corker contrasted it with drastic moves in recent memory to jail high profile Saudis in the Riyadh Ritz Carlton, a flareup with Lebanon and the crown prince's "rookie mistake" in handling a blockade of Qatar.

"The Turks have been talking more to the media than they have us", Corker said of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally. Two Saudi officials have since attributed the death to a chokehold.

Britain, France and Germany have urged Saudi Arabia to provide "credible" facts for its explanation about the killing of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul.

Meanwhile, operative Mustafa Madani donned Khashoggi's clothes, eyeglasses and Apple watch and left through the back door of the consulate in an attempt to make it look like Khashoggi had walked out of the building.

Turkish sources say the authorities have an audio recording purportedly documenting Khashoggi's murder inside the consulate but have not released it.

"Firstly, we condemn this act in the strongest terms".

The official said the Saudi narrative of events kept changing as the government initial account was based on "false information reported internally at the time".

"God have mercy on you my love Jamal, and may you rest in Paradise", Khashoggi's fiancee, Hatice Cengiz, tweeted following the Saudi announcements.

He added that Saudi officials do not know the whereabouts of Mr Khashoggi's remains.

Corker called for a "collective response" from Western countries against the Saudi government if they are found to have been involved, and similarly pushed for the crown prince to not be in power if he directed the killing. "All of this needs to be explained in all its details", Erdogan said.

Not true, said the Saudis.

Turkish investigators are likely to find out what happened to the corpse "before long", a senior Turkish official said on Saturday. "In this case, people have turned it upside down, unfortunately", al-Jubeir said.

He added: "On the one hand, ministers defend weapons sales to the Saudi coalition with claims that the coalition properly investigates when airstrikes kill Yemeni civilians".

The king also ordered a restructuring of the intelligence service, to be led by Prince Mohammed, suggesting the prince still retained wide-ranging authority.

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 US and Saudi Arabia, which has said it will retaliate against any economic sanctions or other moves against it.

"This is not just about this journalist being killed", Paul said.
