Trump reproaches Saudi "cover-up" amid Washignton's first penalty move

Turkish Leader: 'Savage' Murder Can't Go Unpunished

"And they had the worst cover-up ever", he said.

Turkish authorities briefed visiting Central Intelligence Agency chief Gina Haspel on the investigation into the killing and the evidence they have, a Turkish security official who was not authorized to speak to the media said on condition of anonymity. But the president appeared more open on Tuesday to punishing the Saudi government, telling reporters in the Oval Office he would consider jeopardizing military sales if the Saudi government was officially behind the killing. According to two intelligence sources, Mr Qahtani ran the killing by giving orders over Skype.

Saudi state media on Tuesday published photos of Jamal Khashoggi's son Salah Khashoggi with Saudi Arabia's King Salman and Prince Mohammed.

On Thursday, Saudi state Ekhbariya TV quoted the Saudi public prosecutor as saying Khashoggi's murder was premeditated, and that prosecutors were interrogating suspects on the basis of information provided by a joint Saudi-Turkish task force.

"Why has the body of someone who was officially said to be killed not been found yet?" asked Erdogan.

"The Saudi administration has taken an important step by admitting to the murder". Pro-government media in Turkey reported officials have such a recording, but its existence has not been confirmed. Mr Erdogan made no reference to any audio recording.

May said that "if these individuals now have visas, those visas will be revoked today".

According to the report, Turkish security forces examined the consulate building but Saudi officials did not give them permission to search the garden of the consulate and a well in it. It was not clear what was in the suitcases.

Aussies thumped by Pakistan in opening T20
White-ball superstar Babar Azam finished unbeaten on 68 while Mohammad Hafeez crunched two sixes on the way to 39. Some lusty blows from Hasan Ali (17) in the final over, bowled by Nathan Coulter-Nile, helped Pakistan cross 150.

Prince Mohammed is suspected of orchestrating the events that led to Jamal Khashoggi's death.

"The U.S. will remain a key part of the Saudi economy because the interests that tie us are bigger than what is being weakened by the failed boycotting campaign of the conference", Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al-Falih told Saudi state TV.

Earlier on October 23, the kingdom's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said that the killing was something that must "never happen again" and pledged a full investigation into the journalist's death.

Mr Trump said he would work with the US Congress to determine the US response to the Khashoggi matter.

"My first question to him was, 'Did you know anything about it in terms of the initial planning?'" Trump told the Journal, adding that the Crown Prince told him that he did not.

Global business leaders have pulled out from attending the summit over the killing.

A person familiar with the audio said it was "compelling" and could put more pressure on the United States to hold Saudi Arabia accountable for the death of Khashoggi, a contributing columnist for The Washington Post. He was told he would need to return later to collect the documents. He also said that a team from the consulate carried out scouting missions in the Turkish forests of Belgrad and Yalova in the meanwhile.

The location of Khashoggi's corpse remains unknown.
