Newspaper publishers, editors demand Saudi Arabia provide answers on Khashoggis' death

President Donald Trump speaks with reporters before departure from Elko Regional Airport in Elko

Jubeir denied on Sunday that Mohammed had any prior knowledge of the operation and said that the agents involved "weren't people closely tied" to him. "There obviously was a tremendous mistake made, and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up".

Khashoggi vanished after entering the consulate to obtain documents for his upcoming marriage.

There has been speculation Khashoggi was murdered because of his open criticism of the Crown Prince but Saudi authorities insist the royal played no part in his death.

The change indicated Qahtani would still retain significant influence in the Saudi effort to track dissidents online and disseminate official messages via a highly coordinated social-media strategy.

The UK, France and Germany issued a joint statement expressing shock at the death and demanding a full explanation, saying: "Nothing can justify this killing and we condemn it in the strongest possible terms". They said the "hypotheses" proposed so far in the Saudi investigation need to be backed by facts to be considered credible.

As suspicion over his disappearance grew, Saudi authorities offered up a variety of freaky explanations, beginning with an assertion that he had left the consulate unharmed.

The latest account includes details on how 15 Saudis sent to confront Khashoggi had threatened him with being drugged and kidnapped and killed him in a chokehold when he resisted.

The authorities initially dismissed reports that Mr Khashoggi had gone missing inside the consulate as false and said he had left the building soon after entering. The authorities said they have audio recordings from inside the consulate that provide a clear account of how Khashoggi was killed.

Reliance Industries halts Iranian oil imports ahead of US sanctions
According to the EIA, US oil stocks rose by 6.5 million barrels, while oil exports fell to 1.8 million barrels per day. It could enter into the oil world if the Saudi's are forced to retaliate by pulling crude from the market.

Speaking to supporters on Sunday in Istanbul, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Turkey is seeking justice and that he will "go into detail" in a speech to ruling party members in parliament.

The prosecutor last week heard from 15 consulate employees, who were taken as "witnesses", according to the Anadolu Agency news service in a report on Friday.

For Saudi Arabia's allies - particularly in the West - the question will be whether they believe that the prince, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability.

In a statement on Saturday, The Washington Post's publisher and chief executive, Fred Ryan, accused Saudi Arabia of repeatedly lying in the three weeks since Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance. "I want to get to the answer".

"The Saudis have been very helpful by accelerating oil production, especially as sanctions on Iran ramp up", said Kristin Diwan, a senior resident scholar at the Arab Gulf States Institute in Washington.

He said he would "love" it if the Crown Prince was not responsible for the murder.

Sen. Rand Paul told "Fox News Sunday" that the USA "cannot continue to have relations with him and so I think he's going to have to be replaced".

American intelligence officials have said they intercepted communications showing that Saudi officials were plotting to lure Khashoggi back to the kingdom - an operation that was ordered by the crown prince, the officials said.
