Trudeau says Canadians 'expect consequences' for killing of Saudi journalist

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

Sky sources: Jamal Khashoggi's body parts found

The Saudis have laid out different versions of the circumstances that led to the death of Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who was not seen after entering the consulate on October 2.

Cengiz contacts Turkish officials to say that Khashoggi has been held or "something bad" has happened to him. "It was carried out poorly and the cover-up was one of the worst cover-ups in the history of cover-ups", Trump said, according to The Hill. "This brutal murder of a journalist, of an innocent man, of a dissident, will not go without an American response and, I expect, without an worldwide response", US Vice President Mike Pence said at an event hosted by The Washington Post.

He is an outspoken critic of Saudi Arabia who has dared to defy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom's de facto ruler. "The incident is not justifiable", he said.

Earlier, the Turkish government said they had recordings confirming that Khashoggi was tortured, killed and dismembered. It's very simple. Bad deal.

Saudi Arabia has said the heir-apparent of the world's top oil exporter was not involved, but any major decision must be signed off by the highest powers within its ruling Al Saud family. On Monday, Mr. Trump said he isn't satisfied with what he's heard from the Saudis.

Recep Tayyip Erdogan delivered a sharp rebuttal of Saudi Arabia's widely-criticised account that the writer for The Washington Post died accidentally in a brawl.

Saudi Arabia has admitted he was killed there, but Khashoggi's body has not yet been found. (PA) US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo meets with the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

"We are determined not to allow any cover up of this murder and for all those responsible from those who gave the command to those who executed it - not to escape justice", he said.

Saudi officials initially claimed he'd left the consulate the day he entered, but two weeks later, they claimed Khashoggi had been killed after a meeting there turned into a fight. "I really want to believe them", he said. Speaking at an event titled "Transformers: Space" by the Washington Post, where Khashoggi was a contributor, Pence described the attack as "an assault on free and independent press".

Trump reiterating that he does not want to scrap the United States dollars 110 billion mega arms deal with Saudi Arabia and the total investment of USD450 billion from that country, but did not rule out not taking any action against the Saudis. "We expect the same sensitivity from all parties, primarily the Saudi Arabian leadership", he said.

Saudi Arabia's crown prince on Wednesday joked about allegations that Lebanon's premier-designate Saad Hariri was detained in the kingdom past year, saying he hoped his current visit does not spark "abduction" rumours.

The report said King Salman and Mohammed received Salah and Khashoggi's other son, Sahel, at the Yamama Palace in Riyadh on Tuesday (Oct 23).
