"We don't know where the body is", Jubeir said.

He told Fox News in an interview that Khashoggi was approached by a "Saudi security team" when he entered the consulate and their account of what happened after that differed from that of Turkish officials, which prompted the Saudis to investigate.

"Concerning arms exports: that is impossible under the circumstances we see", she added, noting that Germany is considering additional "reactions" to Khashoggi's death.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced that he will reveal details about the Turkish investigation of the alleged murder of the journalist on Tuesday. We are determined to find out all the facts.

British and French officials denounced the latest Saudi explanation as insufficient.

Turkish officials suspect Khashoggi was killed inside the consulate by the Saudi agents and his body cut up.

The Turkish leader's statement came the day after Saudi authorities conceded Khashoggi had been killed inside their diplomatic compound in Istanbul.

Saudi Arabia claims Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in a "fistfight" in the consulate.

It would appear that for the first time in almost a decade, James' team isn't considered a lock to compete for a championship. When he joined the Miami Heat in 2010, Miami struggled to a 9-8 start despite three of the league's best players.

"But Saturday, in an interview with The Washington Post, Trump said, "Obviously there's been deception and there's been lies".

Three days after the journalist vanished, Prince Mohammed told Bloomberg that Khashoggi was not inside the consulate, adding "we are ready to welcome the Turkish government to go and search our premises".

King Salman expressed his deepest sympathy in a telephone call Sunday to Salah Jamal Khashoggi, the son of the 59-year-old journalist, who died in Istanbul early this month.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia's foreign minister sought to contain the fallout on Sunday while telegraphing the kingdom's priority: shielding Mohammed bin Salman, the crown prince and de facto ruler, from growing speculation that Khashoggi's killing could not have happened without his knowledge or consent. Both areas are now being searched for Khashoggi's remains.

President Trump had also talked about possible punishment but said he didn't want to halt a proposed $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia because, he maintained, it would harm USA manufacturers.

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 Saudi version lacked "consistency and credibility", said Chrystia Freeland, Canada's foreign minister. Richard J. Durbin (D-Ill.) said the Saudi ambassador should be formally expelled from the United States if an investigation shows the crown prince's involvement. "Yes, I think he did it", Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told CNN, referring to the crown prince.

The official said Saudi statements had changed because of "false information reported internally at the time".
