After more than two weeks of denials, Saudi Arabia admitted over the weekend that Khashoggi was murdered in its Istanbul consulate but Riyadh's explanations have been seen by friends and foes alike as contradictory and evasive. Al-Madani had reportedly been a member of the 15-person team sent from Saudi Arabia to intercept Khashoggi. Why were 18 people arrested?

Asked how the prince responded to that, Kushner said: "We'll see".

The foreign secretary said Britain will "act accordingly" if the "appalling" stories about the death of Jamal Khashoggi turn out to be true.

The employee said the prosecutors asked them whether something "extraordinary" happened on October 2 in the consulate or if they saw Khashoggi and 15 other Saudis, how long they were employed in the consulate, where they are from and the working hours of the staff.

Anadolu news agency reported that the decision was made by the Istanbul governor's office Sunday, citing an anonymous security official.

We were champions together and he was for the first time the best player in the league with me so I think the feelings are good. Mourinho's expression says it all. "And after that, his assistant comes to me in Sarri's office and apologizes to me.

Turkish investiagtors have for days been scouring the consulate, the consul-general's house and woodland areas on the city's outskirts for Khashoggi's remains. Turkish sources say the authorities have an audio recording purportedly documenting Khashoggi's murder inside the consulate. "There obviously was a tremendous mistake made and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up. That is unacceptable to the government".

After a phone call with Crown Prince M. bin Salman Trump also said "there's no reason" for Saudi Arabia's request for a month to complete an investigation into Khashoggi, adding "that's a long time".

The images contradict Saudi's admission on Saturday that the writer died inside the consulate during a "fistfight". The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, and there are no significant checks on the crown prince's powers.

He also urged Turkey to turn over purported audio recordings of Khashoggi's killing inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

"We're getting as many facts as we can", Kushner said, "then we'll determine which facts are credible".

Khashoggi was a Washington Post columnist and lived in the United States, having fled Saudi Arabia last September. "And we are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder", he said in the interview. Kushner's language mirrored how the president has cast the Khashoggi saga, although Kushner didn't bring up the value of arms sales, as Mr. Trump repeatedly has.

Merkel reiterated her condemnation of the killing at Saudi's consulate in Istanbul, and her earlier call for the kingdom to provide further clarification on the incident and hold those responsible to account.

Erdogan spoke to U.S. President Donald Trump by telephone Sunday.

Clement acknowledged Freeland's position, which also came in a written statement on Saturday, and said the government needs to do its "diligence on this".
