Top Republican senator believes Saudi Prince Salman responsible for Khashoggi's death

White House

The Saudi government said it had fired five top officials and arrested 18 other Saudis as a result of the initial investigation. "Defending freedom of the press is a key priority for Finland", the tweet read.

The prominent journalist had written columns critical of the Saudi government while living in self-imposed exile in the US.

Khashoggi disappeared earlier this month after last being seen entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

The UK, France and Germany have condemned the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi and said that nothing could justify his death.

Paris: The global community must keep up the pressure on Saudi Arabia after its admission that journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in its Turkish consulate, Reporters without Borders (RSF) said Saturday.

Saudi Arabia admitted that dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi has died, and said it fired two senior officials over the incident that has provoked worldwide outcry.

On Thursday, the Turkish pro-government newspaper Yeni Safak, citing what it described as an audio recording of Mr Khashoggi's slaying, said the squad immediately accosted the journalist after he entered the consulate, cutting off his fingers and later decapitating him.

"I'm not satisfied until we find the answer", Mr Trump said, adding that sanctions were a possibility, but that halting an arms deal would "hurt us more than it would hurt them". Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, using the crown prince's initials.

Saudi Arabia acknowledged on Friday that there had been attempts to cover up the killing, but it has not released any information publicly on what happened to Khashoggi's body. We feel their pain, ' Jubeir said.

But many questions have remained unanswered since the admission.

"This ought to be a relationship-altering event for the United States and Saudi Arabia, that we ought to suspend military sales, we ought to suspend certain security assistance", Schiff said on ABC's "This Week".

"I do, I do", Trump said when asked if the Saudis' explanation was credible.

U.S. President Donald Trump hailed as a "great first step" Friday Saudi Arabia's explanation for the fate of a missing Saudi journalist.

The UK Foreign Office described it as "a bad act" and said the people behind the killing "must be held to account".
