CCTV purportedly shows Khashoggi days and hours before his death

"This was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding the authorities and responsibilities they had", Jubeir said on the United States broadcaster, Fox.

Merkel added that she would continue to consult worldwide partners about a coordinated reaction to the case.

"At moments like this it is the job of a friend to tell the truth; and the truth is that the killing of Khashoggi was a barbaric act to which we in Britain refuse to turn a blind eye", Britain's former foreign minister, Boris Johnson, said on Twitter.

"He extended his condolences to the family of the slain journalist". "We will know very soon".

Erdogan spoke after Saudi Arabia, in a statement early Saturday, finally acknowledged that 59-year-old Khashoggi had died in the consulate, though its explanation that he was killed in a "fistfight" was met with worldwide skepticism and allegations of a cover-up created to absolve Prince Mohammed of direct responsibility.

CNN aired the footage on Monday, citing a Turkish official as describing the man as a "body double" and a member of a 15-man Saudi team sent to Istanbul to target the writer.

Trump said he planned to consult with Congress to devise a response.

Vice founder Shane Smith met the Saudi crown prince in April at a dinner hosted by producer Brian Grazer, which was also attended by Disney CEO Bob Iger, Endeavor boss Ari Emanuel, Amazon's Jeff Bezos (who also owns the Washington Post) and other high-profile Hollywood executives.

On Saturday, the Saudi authorities said that Khashoggi died in the course of a "fight" with agents who were trying to interrogate him in the legation.

The Trump administration says it is continuing to weigh how to respond to the escalating diplomatic crisis with one of its closest allies.

Foster's decision comes amid dramatic changes to the Saudi's government's explanation of what happened to Khashoggi.

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

But the unnamed Turkish official told CNN that the presence of Madani refuted the Saudis' claim that they only wanted to interrogate Khashoggi.

The Shoura Council on Monday praised the royal orders and directives issued by Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Salman after the regrettable incident that led to the death of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

A security guard stands outside Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul on Saturday. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has promised to reveal the findings of an investigation on Tuesday. He called on the world to grasp the gravity of "Saudi state terrorism".

Asked if he trusts the Saudis to investigate themselves, given that prince MBS is the "prime suspect" while also the "prime investigator", Kushner insisted the administration is not relying exclusively on the Saudi version of events. Speaking late Saturday after a campaign rally in Nevada, Trump said he needs to learn more about the killing and will be working with Congress on the US response.

"I would cut off arms sales".

Saudi Arabia has sought to distance its crown prince and de facto ruler, Mohammed bin Salman, from the killing by blaming the episode on a rogue operation conducted outside the knowledge of top Saudi leadership.

He says of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally: "The Turks have been talking more to the media than they have us".

Turkish media on Sunday said 18 Saudi nationals had been arrested in connection with the case and that some 45 people in total had been summoned for investigation. "Nobody has told me he is not responsible", the USA leader said.

The crown prince has denied any involvement. But the Saudi's claim that the 59-year-old Washington Post columnist died in a fistfight contradicted Turkey's accounts that he was tortured, killed and dismembered by members of the crown prince's entourage. That explanation has sparked allegations of a cover-up meant to shield the powerful crown prince.

With US sanctions against Iran coming up and possible sanctions against Saudi Arabia, analysts have said that oil could rise above $100 per barrel.

"Canada is very mindful of the fact that this murder occurred in Turkey and it's very important for Turkey to be a part of the conversation", said Freeland. "And I think we're inching our way there".
