Saudi Arabia has denied any responsibility, according to US President Donald Trump.

"If Khashoggi was fighting inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, he was fighting for his life with people sent to capture or kill him", said Schiff, the ranking member of the House intelligence committee.

Trump previously said there would be "very severe" consequences if Saudi Arabia was discovered to be responsible.

Suspicion has grown that bin Salman, the Saudi crown prince, ordered the assassination of Khashoggi who has not been seen since he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

His disappearance strained relations between Saudi Arabia and Western allies including the US.

Turkey's pro-government press has reported that Turkey has an audio recording that proves the alleged murder of Khashoggi at the consulate and that he was tortured before his death.

News of Khashoggi's disappearance emerged after his fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, told friends she waited outside the consulate for almost 12 hours and didn't see him exit the building.

Khashoggi is feared dead after entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul more than two weeks ago. Saudi Arabia had rejected as baseless reports that Khashoggi was killed and dismembered inside the consulate, but had been facing growing pressure to explain what happened to him.

We must take this moment as an opportunity to reset the U.S. -Saudi relationship - with some new rules.

Saudi officials did not immediately respond to questions from Reuters about the king's involvement in helping to manage the expanding crisis. It wasn't immediately clear what they hoped to find there, although surveillance video had showed diplomatic cars moving between the consulate and the residence almost two hours after Khashoggi walked into the diplomatic post.

I have always been troubled by the nature of the relationship between the USA and Saudi Arabia.

He was last seen entering the Saudi consulate in Turkey's capital Istanbul on 2 October, to pick up paperwork that would allow him to marry his fiancée Hatice Cengiz.

In a note affixed to the top of the column, Post Global Opinions editor Karen Attiah said she received the essay from Khashoggi's translator and assistant a day after he was reported missing.

Turkish media reported on Thursday that one of the 15 suspects died in a "suspicious" auto accident in Riyadh that day, another statement the Saudi report on Friday did not comment on.

However the mission is said to be led by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who was suspected of being behind Khasshoggi's disappearance in some versions of stories alleging what happened to the Washington Post writer.

Dutch finance minister Wopke Hoekstra also cancelled, after discussing the issue with Mr Le Maire, the Dutch foreign minister said.

But in the midst of more news about what may have happened to Khashoggi - including possibly being beaten, drugged, murdered, and posthumously dismembered - and mounting pressure from USA lawmakers, Mnuchin made a decision to no longer attend the Saudi showpiece.

The New York Times reported Tuesday that a suspect identified by Turkey was a frequent companion of the prince's. "They're an important strategic ally of the United States, and we need to be mindful of that", he said.
