A Saudi official later told Reuters that 15 Saudi nationals sent to Turkey to confront Khashoggi had threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and then killed him in a chokehold when he resisted.

According to local media outlets based in the province, one of the vans carrying some members of the Saudi hit squad was filmed in Yalova's Termal district on the day of the disappearance.

Abdulkadir Selvi, whose columns in the Hurriyet daily are closely watched for indications of Erdogan's thinking, gave what he said were new details and said Prince Mohammed had to take responsibility.

Jubeir extended condolences to Khashoggi's family.

Jordan's King Abdullah attended the afternoon session with the Crown Prince.

Many world leaders have condemned the murder of the prominent Saudi critic and demanded a full investigation.

"As we gather here in Riyadh this morning, it is natural that our thoughts tend to focus on recent events surrounding the death of Jamal Khashoggi - a writer, a journalist and a Saudi journalist known to many of us", she said.

Speaking in the House of Commons, Hunt said the British government condemned the murder of the journalist "in the strongest possible terms" and expressed concerns that his "horrific treatment was inflicted by people who work for a government with whom we have close relations".

"Why has the consulate general building not been opened right away but days after?"

"The first thing they did was remove the hard disk and camera of the consulate", Mr Erdogan said.

After over two weeks of vehement denials, Saudi Arabia on Friday night admitted Khashoggi was killed in the consulate.




"Those responsible for the killing must be held to account".

The footage aired Monday - which appeared to show Mustafa al-Madani, 57, and an accomplice - further challenges the Saudi explanations.

Saudi authorities have not confirmed the restrictions.

"This brutal murder of a journalist, of an innocent man or a dissent will not go without an American response" Pence said, adding that there probably would be an global response as well.

The forum is the brainchild of Prince Mohammed and is aimed at drawing more foreign investment into the kingdom to help create desperately needed jobs for millions of young Saudis entering the workforce in the coming years.

"There was no clear order to kill him or to kidnap him", explained the Saudi official. "The Vienna convention does not allow the investigation of such murders to be prevented by diplomatic immunity", Erdoğan said, saying that he also expects the convention to be reviewed after this incident.

In an interview with state-run Anadolu Agency, Mevlut Cavusoglu also said Turkey has not shared evidence concerning his death at the Saudi consulate with any country but added that there may have been "an exchange of views between intelligence organizations".

In a rare joint statement, Britain, France and Germany said there was an "urgent need for clarification" on what happened to Khashoggi and Riyadh's account had to "be backed by facts to be considered credible".

Kushner on Monday fended off criticism that the Trump administration was giving Saudi Arabia cover.

Riyadh says Khashoggi was accidentally choked during a rendition attempt that went wrong, and his body was rolled up in a rug and given to a third party. Saud al-Qahtani was quoted as giving the instructions "bring me the head of the dog", after the two men traded insults.
