Turkish officials and some USA lawmakers allege the crown prince ordered the operation in which Jamal Khashoggi killed.

Hatice Cengiz, in an interview with Turkish broadcaster Haberturk, said Khashoggi had not wanted to go to the Saudi consulate, where he was killed shortly after entering it on October 2.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel bin Ahmed Al-Jubeir said that the Kashoggi case suspects will will be prosecuted in Saudi Arabia, Reuters reports on Saturday.

Stating that Turkey has further information and documents about the 18 suspects related to the case, Erdogan called on Saudi Arabia to hand over them to Turkey.

Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Hami Aksoy announced that the officials in the General Consulate of Saudi Arabia accepted the request of Turkey to make an investigation at the consulate.

"Whether or not they acted in the name of the state, that remains to be discussed and investigated", she said.

Mr Mattis never mentioned Saudi Arabia directly in connection with the killing of Mr Khashoggi, but he noted that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo revoked visas of Saudis implicated in the killing.

On Thursday, Prince Mohammed attended the first meeting of a committee aiming to restructure the kingdom's intelligence services after the killing of Khashoggi, the state-run Saudi Press Agency said.

Barclays won't face trial on Qatar deal
The SFO may be able to appeal to the Supreme Court but that option... "As a result, all of the charges remain dismissed". The decision means Barclays will avoid the prospect of a highly visible jury trial over its actions.

"You need to show this body", Erdogan said.

Sarah Leah Whitson, the executive director of Human Right's Watch's Middle East and North Africa division, said that Salah Khashoggi and his family left the Saudi capital of Riyadh on Thursday after a travel ban on him was lifted. "We do. Tomorrow is another day", he said.

On October 16, police officers conducted a search at the Consulate General of Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has sought to draw a line under the crisis with the investigation, but a string of gruesome details about the murder have continued to appear in the Turkish media.

The fiancee of slain Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Friday said she did not accept an invitation from US President Donald Trump to visit the White House because she thought it was aimed at influencing public opinion in his own favour.

Trump, in his most recent comments, called it "one of the worst in the history of cover-ups".

"We have made clear that we are going to have a full and transparent investigation, the results of which will be released". "We will maintain our "twin imperatives", as stated by Secretary of State Pompeo, of protecting America and holding accountable those responsible for this murder", he told the forum.
