Trudeau says Canadians expect 'consequences' for Khashoggi murder

The state-run Saudi Press Agency said: 'Discussions took place with the citizen Jamal Khashoggi during his presence in the consulate of the kingdom in Istanbul by the suspects (that) did not go as required and developed in a negative way, leading to a fist fight.

Before his address, the prince reportedly spoke by phone with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has kept pressure on Saudi Arabia to explain the killing that has caused global outcry.

As the crisis unfolded over the past three weeks, Saudi Arabia changed its tune on Mr Khashoggi.

Speaking in Ankara, Erdogan said Turkey will "not allow the murder to be covered up" and will be transparent in sharing any evidence it uncovers.

Britain will revoke the visas of Saudi Arabian suspects involved in the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Prime Minister Theresa May said on Wednesday.

Mr Trump's comments in recent days have ranged from threatening Saudi Arabia with "very severe" consequences and mentioning possible economic sanctions, to more conciliatory remarks highlighting the country's role as a United States ally against Iran and Islamist militants, as well as a major purchaser of USA arms.

Still, Pompeo and Trump took a stronger tone than before as the administration unveiled its first penalties on the Saudis.

The Turkish president did not mention the crown prince in his speech, though officials linked to the royal have been implicated in the killing.

"Covering up a savage murder like this will only hurt the human conscience".

Trump on Tuesday said he'd leave any ramifications against the Saudis for Khashoggi's death up to Congress.

He said there had been good co-operation with Turkey, adding: "A lot of people are trying to seize this painful situation to create a rift between Saudi Arabia and Turkey".
