"We support the Turkish investigation into it, and the British government wants to see people held to account for that death".

The Saudi government said Saturday that it had arrested 18 Saudi officials and fired five others - including the kingdom's deputy intelligence chief Maj.

Khashoggi disappeared October 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul to retrieve a document for his marriage.

Saudi Arabia on Saturday admitted that critic Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside its consulate in Istanbul at the hands of Saudi officials.

Meanwhile, Britain, Germany, and France issued a joint statement on Sunday in which they say there is an "urgent need for clarification of exactly what happened" to Khashoggi.

A member of the team then dressed in Khashoggi's clothes to make it appear as if he had left the consulate, the official told the news agency.

Speaking during a stop in Jerusalem, Mnuchin said the United States' strategic and economic relationship with the Saudis was too important to be put in jeopardy over Khashoggi's killing.

Erdogan and Saudi King Salman spoke by phone on Friday night, agreeing to continue cooperation and exchanging details on the case, the Turkish presidency said in a statement.

What role did Saud al-Qahtani, who has publicly stated that he does not even tweet without the Crown Prince's approval, play and what drove him to carry out this heinous murder?

When asked if he believes Saudi Arabia's explanation, Paul said, "Absolutely not, I think it's insulting".

Saudi Arabia acknowledged on Friday that there had been attempts to cover up the killing, but it has not released any information publicly on what happened to Khashoggi's body. "We don't know where the body is", Mr Jubeir said. "Yes, I think he did it", Senator Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in an interview with CNN's "State of the Union".

The incident had threatened to create a diplomatic crisis with the US, which sees its alliance with Riyadh as the cornerstone of its Middle East policy, and Turkey, which has tenuous ties with Saudi Arabia. "Turkey has said it will not allow a "cover-up", while European leaders have said that hypotheses" proposed so far in the Saudi investigation need to be backed by facts to be considered credible.

The minister also offered his condolences to Mr Khashoggi's family, as he described the journalist's death as a "terrible mistake".
