Staff at Saudi Arabia's consulate in the Turkish city of Istanbul tried to dismantle closed-circuit television cameras (CCTV) of the premises in an attempt to help cover up the gruesome murder of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside the diplomatic mission last month, a report says.

On Monday Turkey's vice president said investigators should look into a theory that the body was dissolved in acid.

The source added: "The fact that a clean-up team was dispatched from Saudi Arabia nine days after the murder suggests that Khashoggi's slaying was within the knowledge of top Saudi officials".

Despite intensive searches by Turkish police, there is still no trace of Khashoggi's remains.

"I think it is Saudi Arabia's responsibility to find out what happened to Khashoggi's body and inform us about it, as the 15-man team are still in Saudi Arabia", Mr. Cavusoglu said.

Analysts say Saudi authorities appear to be trying to defuse the crisis by shoring up support from within the royal family.

Khashoggi, a permanent USA resident who was living in Virginia, was critical of the Saudi government.

They were sent to take part in a joint Turkish-Saudi probe, but included experts in chemistry and toxicology who were ordered to clean up any evidence.

But even as worldwide powers put pressure on the Crown Prince to get to the bottom of Khashoggi's murder, it's unlikely to hurt his ascension to the throne, said Neil Quilliam, who directs the Future Dynamics in the Gulf project at the Chatham House think tank in London. The group paid over $100 billion in settlements for what Saudi authorities said were corruption charges.

Bandar Al Aiban, the head of Riyadh's delegation, told the United Nations hearing that King Salman had instructed the Saudi public prosecutor to "proceed with the investigation into this case according to the applicable laws", and "bringing all the perpetrators to justice".

In an article in the Washington Post on Friday, Erdogan said the order to kill Khashoggi came from the "highest levels" of the Saudi government and called for the "puppetmasters" to be unmasked.

He said King Salman assured him that those involved in Jamal Khashoggi's murder would be brought to justice.

Turkey's chief prosecutor said recently that Khashoggi was strangled as soon as he entered the consulate and also confirmed the body was dismembered.

"We just need to make sure that he rests in peace", Salah said. "Without due orders and permissions, 15 people can not come from Saudi Arabia to kill their own citizen", Cavusoglu said.
