Khashoggi murder: Saudi crown prince calls journalist's killing 'heinous crime'

"The crime was very painful to all Saudis". It was carried out poorly.

Trump said: "Once they thought about it, everything else they did was bad too".

"We are going through a crisis", Mr Al Falih said in his speech.

On Tuesday afternoon, President Trump declared the Khashoggi "cover-up" one of the "worst in the history of cover-ups".

The death of Khashoggi, a USA resident and Washington Post columnist, has sparked global outrage and threatened relations between Riyadh and Washington as well as other Western nations.

Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri held talks Wednesday in Riyadh with Saudi King Salman bin Abdul Aziz and joined Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in addressing a global investment forum in the Saudi capital.

Turkish authorities claim to have an audio recording of Mr Khashoggi's death that supposedly confirms he was tortured, killed, had his fingers cut off and was dismembered. "I don't think that any country would dare do such a thing without USA backing", Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said, according to AFP. "And they should be in big trouble".

People around the world have been struck by the look on Salah's face as he shakes hands with MBS, as well as the presence of a bodyguard, who stands poised with a hand on his gun.

Erdogan said he wants Saudi Arabia to send 18 suspects to Turkey for a trial. The journalist has relatives still living in Saudi Arabia and three children who hold U.S. citizenship.

"You can hear his voice and the voices of men speaking Arabic", the source said.

Trump said he wanted to believe Prince Mohammed when he said that lower level officials were to blame for the killing at the Saudi mission.

The US leader, who sent his Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel to Istanbul to discuss the issue, is expecting a full report in the coming days. It's a bad situation.

Rights campaigners have called on the Trump administration to lobby Saudi Arabia to lift a travel ban on Khashoggi's son. "I see them in the Middle East, I see them in Washington".

Saudi Arabia has described the suspects as rogue operators.

Saudi organisers of the conference have sought to portray it as business as usual, announcing 12 "mega deals" worth more than US$50 billion in oil, gas, infrastructure and other sectors on the opening day of the forum. So many jobs. Thousands and thousands of jobs, he said.

"So far, we've heard about it, but nobody has seen it", Trump told reporters on Saturday, adding that, to his knowledge, that included the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Central Intelligence Agency.
