They were published shortly after a report in the Washington Post - for whom Mr Khashoggi worked - cited U.S. government officials who believed that audio recordings proved he had been murdered while visiting the Saudi embassy. "The report is intended, per CNN, to absolve the Saudi government of responsibility for the murder by claiming the operation was not cleared", the new report said.

Turkish officials have said they believe a 15-member Saudi "assassination squad" killed Mr Khashoggi there.

On Oct. 13, U.S. President Donald Trump threatened Riyadh with "severe punishment" if Khashoggi has been murdered.

Still, he said, the revenue from sales to Saudi Arabia "pales in comparison to the USA military".

The president has sent Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to Saudi Arabia to investigate the disappearance.

The recordings purportedly indicated that the prominent Saudi journalist was tortured and killed at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul, according to the Turkish Sabah daily. "We're very much working with our allies in the worldwide community to try and bring forward a concerted, or at least an aligned, response as we learn more about this situation", Trudeau said during a "fireside chat" at the Fortune Global Forum in Toronto.

"The king firmly denied any knowledge of it", Trump told reporters after speaking with King Salman.

Saudi Arabia is reportedly allowing Turkey, which reportedly says it has audio and video evidence that Khashoggi was killed, to search its Istanbul consulate.

However, he told CBS News on Saturday that the USA was investigating the case which he called "really bad and disgusting" and that "there will be severe punishment".

Australian Senate Votes Against Motion That 'It Is Okay To Be White'
Pauline Hanson on Monday brought forward the motion, which also declared "anti-white" racism was on the rise in Australia. Greens leader Richard Di Natale also had a crack at Senator Hanson, calling her out over "white privilege".

The Journal, like CNN, said the Saudi statement has not been finalized.

Donald Trump is suggesting "rogue killers" may be responsible for whatever happened to missing Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

"The Republic of Yemen expressed its deep appreciation for the high prestige enjoyed by the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, which makes it the cornerstone of the security and stability of the Arab and Islamic worlds, as well as stability of the region", read the statement, attributed to Yemen's state news agency Saba.

The Saudis have insisted that Khashoggi, who would have been 60 on Saturday, left the building...

King Salman ordered the public prosecutor to open an internal investigation into Khashoggi's disappearance.

A joint Saudi-Turkish team arrived at the consulate on Monday in Istanbul's upscale 4th Levent neighbourhood, as journalists filmed and shot photographs of their arrival.

Saudi Arabia has pledged to retaliate economically for any United States punitive action.

Bahrain called for a boycott of Uber, in which PIF has invested $3.5 billion, after its chief executive officer said he would not attend the conference. On October 2, Khashoggi went to the Saudi consulate with his fiancée to get documents proving his divorce.

The Saudi foreign ministry said King Salman affirmed his country's "solid" relations with Turkey in the phone call with Erdogan, stressing that no one could undermine their relationship.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin still plans to attend a previously scheduled Saudi conference this week to address terrorist financing, but those plans could change as the investigation progresses, said White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow.
