Khashoggi's fiancee Hatice Cengiz, who waited outside the consulate as the journalist entered to obtain documents for their upcoming marriage, said what was done to his body was "brutal, barbaric and ruthless".

The crown prince stated Khashoggi was a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, prior to Saudi Arabia formally acknowledging it was responsible for the journalist's death.

The murder of the royal insider-turned-critic has provoked widespread outrage and fuelled an global debate about arms deliveries to Saudi Arabia.

"Jamal Khashoggi's abduction and murder is extremely troubling". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called senior American officials recently to urge that Washington not abandon its support for Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman amid growing criticism over the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in Istanbul, according to multiple reports.

"But Jamal's death is more than a 'complication.' It is vicious, state-sponsored murder of an innocent journalist", he added, calling on the government to suspend arms deals with Riyadh and not resume "business as usual" with the kingdom. After offer varying explanations for his disappearance, Saudi Arabia acknowledged he was killed in the diplomatic facility, but sought to shift the blame for his slaying on a "rogue operation".

The Supreme Court has never ruled squarely about the clause's application to children of immigrants who are in the USA illegally.

Khashoggi's family rejected the characterization in a statement to the newspaper.

The Saudis have given a shifting account of what happened to Khashoggi on October 2. He denied such claims repeatedly over the past several years. The Turks added that the Saudi prosecutor also said no statement had been made by Saudi authorities about the existence of the purported local cooperator. "To claim otherwise would be ridiculous".

The New York Times, Reuters and the Financial Times reported that the prince's return had sparked speculation about his role in the kingdom's crisis management efforts following the global outcry over the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The Saudi crown prince called Jamal Khashoggi a risky Islamist during a phone call with Jared Kushner and national security adviser John Bolton days after the journalist disappeared last month at the Saudi consulate in Turkey, according to a report on Thursday.

His body has not yet been found, but Turkey, the USA and Saudi Arabia have all agreed that he was killed at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October.

A source close to the Saudi Royal Palace told CNN last week that the location of Khashoggi's body was not known to the Saudis.
