'I'm not satisfied' with accounts of Khashoggi death

Erdogan a threat to US effort to contain Iran

He called the killing of Khashoggi a "heinous crime".

Khashoggi, a Saudi dissident and American resident, went missing on October 2 after entering the consulate for paperwork related to his wedding.

"We will prove to the world that the two governments (Saudi and Turkish) are cooperating to punish any criminal, any culprit and at the end, justice will prevail", he said to applause.

The official said Kushner - like other members of the administration, including Trump - believes Saudi Arabia should suffer some sort of effect, but said Kushner also believes the U.S. -Saudi relationship "shouldn't be blown up" because of the Khashoggi matter.

Britain, like the United States a major weapons supplier to the kingdom, has described Riyadh's explanations for the killing as lacking credibility.

A person "familiar with the audio" told the Washington post that it was "compelling" and could lead the U.S. to hold Saudi Arabia accountable.

Human Rights Watch says Jamal Khashoggi's son has left Saudi Arabia and is on his way to the United States. British Prime Minister Theresa May said its Saudi arms sales were "under review", a stance similar to that expressed by Australia.

On Sunday, in a preview of his speech, Erdogan said he would explain the episode "in a very different way", the semi-official Anadolu news agency reported. Turkey has been turning up the pressure on Saudi Arabia, a regional rival, to reveal more about the crime.

Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel has heard audio recordings that are believed to capture the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, media reports say.

He said Saudi Arabia had arrested 15 Saudi suspects who flew to Turkey shortly before the attack, as well as three local consulate staff, and called for the 18 to stand trial in Istanbul.

Bahout said President Recep Tayyip Erdogan could pressure Saudi Arabia to fix ties with Turkish ally Qatar, which is under a blockade from Gulf Arab states, or to ease pressure on the Muslim Brotherhood, which the kingdom has seen as a threat for its role in Arab Spring protests.

Martin Indyk, a top Middle East policymaker under Bill Clinton, said President Donald Trump had in effect tried to subcontract policy in the region to Saudi Arabia and Israel as he lessens United States commitments.

Investigators found two suitcases containing documents and a laptop the previous day after permission to search the vehicle was granted by the Saudi team, Turkish state news reported.

"Jamal's family needs a place to be together where they feel safe to mourn their beloved one", said Randa Slim, director of conflict resolution at the Washington-based Middle East Institute, who knew the slain journalist personally.

"To blame such an incident on a handful of security and intelligence members would not satisfy us or the global community", Mr Erdogan said in a speech to ruling party MPs in parliament.

"In this particular case I haven't the slightest doubt that the Western allies have got to take a stand over the butchering of Mr Khashoggi", Lord Heseltine told the BBC.

That earlier assertion, in turn, backtracked from an initial statement that Saudi authorities knew nothing about what happened to the columnist for The Washington Post, who vanished after entering the consulate October 2.

"The claim that has been made that Mr Khashoggi died in a fight does not amount to a credible explanation so there does remain an urgent need to establish what has happened in relation to this".
