Khashoggi fiancee declines White House visit after Trump comments

Turkey on Friday said it wanted 18 Saudis extradited over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Ankara still had more evidence to reveal in the case.

In its latest version, the Saudi public prosecutor said the killing was premeditated, reversing an earlier statement that Khashoggi was killed accidentally in a fight at the consulate.

On Oct. 20, Saudi Arabia confirmed Khashoggi died Oct. 2 after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, to obtain documents for his planned marriage.

The kingdom has said that his killers were rogue agents who exceeded their authority and will be punished.

Riyadh finally accepted on Thursday what Turkey had said virtually from the start - that he was killed in a premeditated hit.

Palladino also said Pompeo attended a briefing on the former Washington Post writer's death by CIA Director Gina Haspel, following her return from Turkey.

However, Saudi Arabia changed its story once again on Thursday, noting that it was a "premediated" murder by Saudi operatives, after receiving new information from Turkish investigators.

Turkish police have found no DNA traces in water samples taken from a well located in the residence of the Saudi Arabian consul in Istanbul as they search for missing journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Turkish media reports.

An official in Washington said US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had "raised the safety and security of the Khashoggi family members with the Saudi leadership", but declined to discuss the specifics of Salah's travel.

The foreign minister of Saudi Arabia has characterized the global outrage in response to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi as "fairly hysterical".

After first insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, Saudi authorities said he was killed in an argument that degenerated into a brawl.

Ms Cengiz said Mr Khashoggi was concerned tensions would arise when he visited the consulate for the first time on Sept 28, but he was treated well at that visit, which appeared to reassure him, she said.

"Did you see that WWE is still going to Saudi Arabia?"

"This issue has become fairly hysterical", Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir said.

The Turkish government has demanded that Saudi Arabia's government disclose the whereabouts of Kashoggi's body and force his murderers to turn themselves in for trial.

Saudi Arabia is the lynchpin of a US -backed regional bloc against Iran but the crisis has strained Riyadh's relations with the West. Dozens of Western officials, bankers and executives shunned a big investment conference in Riyadh this week.
