  • Dozens of business leaders and diplomats have withdrawn from the Saudi economic conference

What's the latest from the Saudis?

"We are determined to find out all the facts". Jubeir said Saudi Arabia wanted to make sure "those who are responsible are punished, and we want to make sure that we have procedures in place that prevent it from happening again".

"This is an aberration", al-Jubeir said in the Fox television interview.

The crown prince has denied any involvement.

Marsudi said al-Jubeir had conveyed a "statement and explanation" to Widodo about the case, but she declined to elaborate.

Saudi Arabia finally acknowledged on Friday that Khashoggi had been killed at the consulate, although the explanation that a "quarrel and fighting by hand" led to his death has been met with worldwide skepticism.

21 called the killing a "huge and grave mistake", but sought to shield its powerful crown prince from the widening crisis, saying Mohammed bin Salman had not been aware. If any country should empathise with the flagrant violation of worldwide law this type of action represents, it should be the UK.

US President Donald Trump also had talked about possible punishment but said he didn't want to halt proposed arms sales to Saudi Arabia because he maintained it would harm American manufacturers.

"After Turkish authorities and the media were allowed to inspect the consulate building in its entirety, the accusations changed to the outrageous claim that he was murdered, in the consulate, during business hours, and with dozens of staff and visitors in the building", he said, adding: "I don't know who is behind these claims, or their intentions, nor do I care frankly". As part of an agreement to form a coalition government earlier this year, Merkel and her center-left partners stated that Germany would not approve further arms exports to countries "so long as they are immediately involved in the war in Yemen".

Saudis Preparing to Admit Journalist Killed By Mistake During Interrogation
The president on Wednesday called Saudi Arabia an important ally, noting it is an important customer for USA military exports. Mr Khashoggi had fled the country a year ago amid the rise of Prince Mohammed, whom he wrote critically about in the Post .

For Saudi Arabia's allies - particularly in the West - the question will be whether they believe that the prince, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability.

Kuwait praised King Salman for his handling of the case, while Egypt, Bahrain and the United Arab Emirates have been among those reflecting similar praise. The crown prince, who is known in diplomatic circles as "MBS", has drawn some praise in the West for his moves to modernize the kingdom and criticism for his government's arrests of rivals and critics.

The killing of Jamal Khashoggi was "a violently planned" murder that was subsequently covered up, the spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling AK Party said Monday.

Where is the investigation now?

Before Riyadh's admission, Turkish sources said a team of 15 Saudis were sent to Istanbul and killed Khashoggi, a critic of the crown prince who moved to the United States previous year and wrote for the Washington Post.

Both the consulate and the residence of the Saudi consul have been searched too.

Asked by a reporter whether he thought Saudi Arabia's explanation for Khashoggi's death was credible, Trump said, "I do". His body was then rolled in a rug and given to a local "co-operator" to dispose of.

The revelation came as a pro-Turkish government newspaper published claims that there had been four telephone calls between the Saudi consulate and the office of the crown prince in Riyadh on the day of Khashoggi's death.
