  • Mohammed bin Salman 'told White House' Khashoggi was a dangerous Islamist

The claim echoed what a Turkish official had told the Washington Post - for which Khashoggi was a contributor - that authorities are investigating a theory the body was destroyed in acid.

The Islamist group has branches in countries around the Middle East, and, to the Saudis, being a member made Khashoggi a terrorist. After initially denying Khashoggi had been killed, the Saudi government claimed he died in an unplanned "rogue operation".

While insisting the United States did not condone Khashoggi's killing, the top USA diplomat said the United States had "deep and long-term strategic relationships" with Saudi Arabia and "we intend to make sure that those relationships remain intact".

WASHINGTON, Nov 1 - Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Thursday it would be a "handful more weeks" before the United States had enough evidence to impose sanctions in response to the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The murder of the royal insider-turned-critic has provoked widespread outrage and fuelled an worldwide debate about arms deliveries to Saudi Arabia.

"We don't know where the body is", he said.

"According to the latest information we have, the reason they cut up the body is it was easier to dissolve it", said Aktay, an adviser to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan who was close to Khashoggi.

Saudi Arabia has changed its account of what happened to Khashoggi.

He entered the Saudi Arabian consulate in Istanbul a month ago to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage, but never left. The Turks added that the Saudi prosecutor also said no statement had been made by Saudi authorities about the existence of the purported local cooperator.

Fidan, the Istanbul prosecutor, on Wednesday said that Khashoggi was strangled shortly after entering the consulate and that his body was dismembered afterward.
