U.S. President Donald Trump said Monday he was "not satisfied" with Riyadh's explanation of how journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor, died inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland condemned the murder of Khashoggi on Monday, saying the various Saudi explanations for his death lacked credibility and consistency.

Turkish pro-government media has said the team interrogated, tortured and decapitated Khashoggi but a pro-government columnist Abdulkadir Selvi on Monday wrote in Hurriyet daily that Khashoggi was strangled to death before he was cut up into 15 pieces. Why were 18 people arrested?

Kushner said it was important to maintain the US-Saudi alliance.

Newly leaked surveillance footage from the killing of Jamal Khashoggi appears to show a man walking around in the writer's clothes in Istanbul after his killing. "They made the mistake when they killed Jamal Khashoggi in the consulate and they tried to cover up for it", he said.

The state-run broadcaster TRT later also reported that a man who entered the consulate was seen leaving the building in Khashoggi's clothes.

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.

On Friday, officials claimed that Khashoggi was killed in a fistfight.

Saudi Arabia's Minister of Foreign Affairs Adel al-Jubeir said in an interview with U.S. television channel Fox on the same day that Prince Mohammed had no knowledge of Khashoggi's death.

Mr Hunt said he had been in talks with European Union partners to "extend the sanctions regime to individuals for human rights violations". "That is unacceptable to the government".

We do not know where the body is.

Saudi Arabia's claim that a dissident journalist died in a fight at one of its consulates is not credible, Jeremy Hunt has said. "I cannot give you a guarantee, because I cannot predict what will happen to other suppliers, " al-Falih said, when asked if the market could avoid crude trading at triple-digits again. The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy, and there are no significant checks on the crown prince's powers.

Hours after Khashoggi entered the consulate, Madani and another man left by the consulate's back door, the footage reportedly showed.

"We are far from seeing everything on the table and the perpetrators being brought to justice", Merkel said.

President Donald Trump had also talked about possible punishment but said he didn't want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia because it would harm USA manufacturers.

As we consider how to respond to current events, individual faculty members who have or are considering engagements with Saudi Arabia will make their own determinations as to the best path forward. He initially said he believed the Saudi account. Speaking late Saturday after a campaign rally in Nevada, Trump said he needs to learn more about the killing and will be working with Congress on the US response.

"The world is watching", Kushner said was his advice to Prince Mohammed.

"The Crown Prince Muhammad Bin Salman was not aware of this, even the senior leadership of the intelligent service was not aware of this", Al-Jubeir said.
