"I agree with all those who say when it comes to our already limited arms exports (to Saudi Arabia) that they can not take place in the current situation", she told reporters at her party headquarters.

Turkish government sources have claimed that Khashoggi, a critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the Saudi government, was tortured and murdered by a hit squad flown in from Riyadh.

Canada condemned Saudi Arabia's account of the death of dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi as inconsistent and not credible on Saturday, calling for a "thorough" investigation. The killing was a "shocking violation" of an worldwide treaty on consular relations, the European Union foreign service said.

The Turks have said Khashoggi's body was cut up by an autopsy specialist with a bone saw before being carried out of the consulate in large suitcases and disposed of in an unknown location, perhaps a forest.

"Why 15 people came. why 18 people were detained".

"The crown prince was not aware of this [operation]".

"I think everything should be on the table", Sasse said. My guess is at the end of the day, the USA and the rest of the world will believe fully that he did it.

Soon after talking with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman over phone, Trump in a tweet said that answers related to Khashoggi's disappearance would be forthcoming shortly.

Germany is the fourth largest exporter of weapons to Saudi Arabia after the United States, Britain and France. Forensic expert Salah Tubaigy tried to remove any trace of the incident, the official said. We don't know in terms of details how.

South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham went even further, totally undermining the Saudi crisis management. Amid the scuffle, Khashoggi was put in a chokehold which ultimately led to his death. So, what we would rather do is support the investigation, find out what happened, ' he said.

"We have a great deal of understanding for those who have canceled their participation", he added.

Merkel and Maas said they "condemned the crime in the sharpest possible manner", adding that they expected "transparency from Saudi Arabia about the circumstances of [Khashoggi's] death and the background".

Corker called for a "collective response" from Western countries against the Saudi government if they are found to have been involved, and similarly pushed for the crown prince to not be in power if he directed the killing.

A member of the team then dressed in Khashoggi's clothes to make it appear as if he had left the consulate, the official told the news agency.

Corker also sought in the interview to stress the strategic importance that Saudi Arabia would have to inform the U.S. response.
