Turkish President Erdoğan urges Saudi prosecutor to probe who ordered Khashoggi hit

Mattis called for ceasefire in Yemen and for parties to come to negotiating table within 30 days

She said: 'If the allegations in this weekend's report are true they are extremely serious, it was reported in early September that our intelligence services became aware of the Saudi plan to abduct Jamal Khashoggi and on October 1 they knew that a Saudi team had been dispatched to Istanbul for that goal.

Speaking at a memorial in London, Hatice Cengiz expressed disappointment in the "leadership of many countries". "No need to prevaricate, it makes no sense to try to save certain people", Erdogan said.

Al-Mujeb arrived at the consulate after visiting Istanbul's main courthouse for the second time as part of an investigation into the killing Khashoggi.

Turkey is seeking the extradition of the Saudi suspects detained for the killing, which happened after Khashoggi entered the consulate on October 2. He should not pave the way for a cover-up of my fiance's murder.

Khashoggi, 59, had entered the diplomatic compound to obtain paperwork for his marriage to his Turkish fiancee Hatice Cengiz.

Mojeb travelled to Istanbul this week after being the first Saudi official to acknowledge the killing was "premeditated" based on the results of Turkey's investigation.

Turkey is seeking the extradition of 18 Saudi suspects detained in Saudi Arabia for the October 2 killing of Khashoggi - a journalist who had written critically of Saudi Arabia's crown prince in columns for The Washington Post. Fidan asked al-Mojeb to reveal who sent this group, according to the president.

US President Donald Trump has said Prince Mohammed, who has consolidated control over Saudi security and intelligence agencies over the past three years, bore ultimate responsibility for the operation that led to Khashoggi's killing.

She said she believed the Saudi regime knew where Khashoggi's body was, and called for the "evil criminals and their cowardly political masters" to be held to account.

Trump has hedged his criticism of Saudi leaders over Khashoggi, insisting he does not want to imperil a "tremendous order" of $110 billion of weapons he says will support 500,000 U.S. jobs - figures that experts say are highly exaggerated.

The two countries have announced a joint investigation of the journalist's killing in Saudi Arabia's consulate in Istanbul, although Turkey has leaked evidence to the media in an apparent effort to pressure its regional rival over the crime committed by Saudi officials. But Saudi Arabia's Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir (top right) today said the investigation would take time and blasted what he called "media hysteria" over the murder of Khashoggi (inset).

She called on authorities in both Turkey and Saudi Arabia to cooperate in ensuring that the full truth about Khashoggi's murder comes to light. "So the Saudi authorities probably know how such a murder took place".

"Again either the Saudi foreign minister or the 18 suspects must explain who the local co-conspirators are", Erdogan said. Let us know whoever this person is and we will find them.

He has denounced the murder as "repulsive" and strongly denied any involvement.
