Saudi crown prince offers condolences

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan

Meanwhile, Turkish crime scene investigators have arrived at an underground auto park in Istanbul where authorities earlier found a vehicle belonging to the Saudi consulate.

And on the global stage, he said other actors, including the U.S. Congress and the Europeans, will have deep misgivings about engaging with the crown prince, who is known by his initials MBS.

The killing of Jamal Khashoggi was "a violently planned" murder that was subsequently covered up, the spokesman for Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan's ruling AK Party said Monday. White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said yesterday the USA will closely follow worldwide investigations into Khashoggi's death and will advocate for justice that is "timely, transparent and in accordance with all due process". "God willing, the results will be brought into the open, those responsible will be punished and no one will dare think of carrying out such a thing again".

In a sign of growing pressure on Saudi Arabia, Turkey said it will announce details of its investigation into the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi on Tuesday and United States congressional leaders said the Gulf kingdom - in particular its crown prince - should face severe consequences for the death of the writer in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

According to the Turkish official, Madani, 57, of similar height, age and build to Khashoggi, 59, was used as a decoy for the journalist. It also contradicted two Saudi officials' comments to Reuters that it was a chokehold that killed him.

After weeks of denying any knowledge of Khashoggi's whereabouts, the Saudi government admitted on Friday that he had died in the diplomatic compound.

But he continued to defend the nation as an "incredible ally" and allowed for the possibility that Khashoggi's death was not directly ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed. He also said he will talk soon to Prince Mohammed. On Sunday, its foreign minister, Adel al-Jubeir, described his death a "murder" and a "tremendous mistake".

Erdogan has remained largely silent on the case, although Turkey's pro-government newspapers have released information about events at the consulate.

It drew the attention of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia at the highest levels, and the circumstances surrounding his disappearance.

Mutreb's name also matches that of a first secretary who once served as a diplomat at the Saudi Embassy in London, according to a 2007 list compiled by the British Foreign Office.

By nightfall, Turkish police began searching an underground vehicle parking garage in Istanbul's Sultangazi district. The images, taken from security camera video, show the writer being searched before continuing towards the building.

Both King Salman and the crown prince called Mr Khashoggi's son on Sunday to express their condolences over his death, the Saudi Press Agency reports.

Chancellor Angela Merkel's government has said Riyadh's explanation of Khashoggi's death is insufficient. "It's not possible for the Saudi administration to wiggle itself out of this crime if it's confirmed, ' Mr Kurtulmus said".
