Attorney General Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb landed at Istanbul's Atatürk Airport on a private plane overnight.

Saudi Arabia's government initially denied any knowledge of Khashoggi's disappearance, saying he had left the consulate in Istanbul.

"The whole truth must be revealed, " Turkey's Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu told a news conference.

Asked if she held Crown Prince Mohammed or the Saudi royal family responsible, she said: "I and my government would like all those responsible, from the person who gave this order to those who carried it out, to be brought to justice and punished under global law".

Mr. Khashoggi, 59, entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to obtain paperwork necessary for his upcoming marriage to Ms. Cengiz, a Turkish national.

Turkey says a trial in Turkey would be transparent, reflecting concerns about Saudi attempts to dodge responsibility for the killing.

Turkey's state broadcaster TRT Haber said Saudi officials at Monday's meeting asked for the whole investigation folder, including evidence, statements and footage.

Last month, it was claimed that Saudi Arabia had been using white phosphorous munitions supplied by the U.S. against soldiers and even civilians in Yemen, the weekly added. No details were provided following the meeting. "Full agreement from FM Jubeir, no reservations at all", Mattis said following talks in Bahrain. "I am sure the investigation will include the evidence that Turkey has put forward so far".

1 student shot at North Carolina high school, police say
Police also said that the shooter, who was also a student, was taken into custody and that police have recovered the weapon. A high school student in North Carolina died Monday morning after being shot by a classmate, authorities say.


"And we're doing that - starting by revoking the visas of 21 Saudi officials and discussing sanctions", said U.S. Sen.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan, who Ms. Cengiz praised, has urged Riyadh to disclose who ordered the murder and prosecutors have prepared an extradition request for 18 suspects from Saudi Arabia.

In the meantime, Saudi Arabia and Turkey continue to feud over whether 18 suspects in Khashoggi's death will be handed over to Ankara.

Stanistreet said: "The global journalistic community today faces an worldwide climate that is ever more febrile and increasingly fraught with danger: an American president who has called journalists the "enemies of the people", a Saudi regime that believes the world will suspend disbelief and allow itself to be hoodwinked as it repeatedly changes its story [on Khashoggi], and a Turkish president speaking out against a bad act - while journalists languish in Turkish prisons".

Erdoğan has called on Riyadh to reveal the location of the body, indicating that his country had more evidence to reveal about the killing.

Erdogan has expressed scepticism about Saudi's shifting explanations of the killing and has called on the kingdom to hold to account all those responsible, no matter how highly placed.

The two countries are running a joint investigation of the killing, though Turkey has been leaking information about the case to the media in an apparent effort to pressure its regional rival for full disclosure.
