Mr Trump said: "Our intelligence agencies continue to assess all information, but it could very well be that the Crown Prince had knowledge of this tragic event - maybe he did and maybe he didn't!"

Germany banned Saudi citizens suspected of involvement in the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi from much of Europe on Monday and moved to halt all arms sales to the kingdom in a firming of its stance towards Riyadh.

Jamal Khashoggi was killed in the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

The reputation of Saudi Arabia, the world's top oil exporter, has been further battered by Khashoggi's murder.

Last week, a Saudi public prosecutor sought death sentence for five Saudi officials charged in the murder. It takes two to tango and Iran has to end also.

Saudi-owned Al-Arabiya television reported the prince will attend the upcoming Group of 20 summit in Argentina, his first overseas trip since the murder.

He reaffirmed Saudi support for a Palestinian state with East Jerusalem as its capital, a long-standing position thrown into question past year when the crown prince appeared to back a nascent USA peace plan that aligns with Israel on key issues.

Judge: White House must return CNN's Jim Acosta's credential
Kelly, a Trump appointed judge, has just made an official ruling in the CNN v. CNN's White House correspondent Jim Acosta arrives for a hearing at the U.S.

The journalist was killed October 2 in the kingdom's Istanbul consulate.

The defence minister also shied away from blaming Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the murder, reiterating that Turkey had shared its evidence with other friendly countries, and the "public prosecution is examining the issue from every angle".

Fox interviewer Chris Wallace asked Trump whether he would go along with moves in Congress to cut off USA involvement in the Saudi-led war in Yemen or halt arms sales to Riyadh. Houthi authorities could not immediately be reached for comment on the report.

Khashoggi, who wrote opinion columns for The Post and was a critic of the Saudi crown prince, was killed at the Saudi consulate while he was trying to get documents for his planned marriage to a Turkish woman.

The reports said Khashoggi was dismembered in the consulate's "C unit", but no recordings from that section exist.

In the latest version, the Saudi prosecutor said a 15-member team went to Istanbul to bring Khashoggi back to the kingdom "by means of persuasion", but killed him instead in a rogue operation. The administration has imposed sanctions on 17 Saudis accused of participating in the killing.
