Germany presses for European Union unity on Saudi Arabia arms exports

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks as US Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin looks on during a tour of the Boeing Company in St. Louis Missouri

Global outrage over Khashoggi's 2 October slaying at the hands of Saudi officials, under still-disputed circumstances, has marked the greatest crisis in the 33-year-old's rapid rise, already tarnished by a catastrophic war in Yemen and a sweeping roundup of Saudi businessmen and activists.

Spain has not joined the group of European countries most critical of the death of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi, who went missing on October 2 after walking into Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul. "This was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding the authorities and responsibilities they had", Jubeir said on Fox. And what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up. "That is unacceptable to the government". Turkish officials have told CNN that Khashoggi's body was dismembered.

An officer said while officers have examined the area around the vehicle, a forensics team will return on Tuesday morning to search inside.

Saudi Arabia said Mohammed spoke Monday by telephone with Khashoggi's son to express condolences for the killing.

He added that pressure should be applied to force the Saudi leader to put an end to the Yemen war, which has been heavily criticised for human rights abuses, including high civilian casualties.

Saudi Arabia claims that Khashoggi was killed after an argument leading to a fist fight has drawn widespread global scorn and skepticism, including from Trump.

"The "fistfight" argument regarding Khashoggi's death is a scenario which was hastily made up, as it became clear that all the details of the incident will soon come out", Aktay wrote.

Turkish news agency Anadolu Agency reported Sunday that Khashoggi's fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, has been given 24-hour police protection. "We feel their pain", Jubeir said in the interview.

The officials say Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Donald Trump agreed during their call late on Sunday that the journalist's case "should be brought to light in all aspects".

At the restaurant, Madani threw the plastic bag in the trash, which Turkish officials believe contained Khashoggi's clothes, according to CNN.

Trump also discussed the journalist's fate with French President Emmanuel Macron, amid increasing global pressure for a transparent, independent investigation.

But any direct challenge to Prince Mohammed's succession "may be destabilizing for the kingdom as a whole", said Cinzia Bianco, a London-based analyst for Gulf State Analytics.

"We look forward to the results of the investigation being led by Turkey and we urge Saudi Arabia to implement its undertaking to participate openly and transparently in that investigation", he added. We have top intelligence people in Turkey. He also said they "don't know where the body is".

"I think it's a long time". They said he died from a fist-fight.

Asked by CNN's Van Jones how the crown prince responded to his advice, Kushner said: "We'll see". Mnuchin told reporters it was "premature" to even discuss sanctions at this point.

Labour's leadership seized on the events in Istanbul to call for arms sales to Saudi Arabia to be halted.

However, a leading U.S. Senate Republican said the Saudi explanation, which followed initial denials from the kingdom that it knew anything about Khashoggi's fate, wasn't credible.
