A longtime USA critic of Saudi Arabia says he feels certain that Crown Prince Mohammed directed the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

As Saudi Arabia faced intensifying global scepticism over its story about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a senior government official laid out a new version of the death inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul that contradicts previous explanations.

US President Donald Trump said on Saturday he is not satisfied with Saudi Arabia's handling of Mr Khashoggi's death and said questions remain unanswered.

Saudi's foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told Fox News the act was a "tremendous mistake".

Mutrib was identified as one of the 15-member Saudi team that is believed to have been involved in the killing of the Saudi journalist.

"The individuals who did this did this outside the scope of their authority", he added.

Selvi said Khashoggi was strangled by a Saudi assassination squad, in a process that took up to eight minutes.

The changing Saudi narrative has not mollifed even supporters of the monarchy.

As of now, 18 Saudi suspects have been taken into custody in connection with the incident and two senior Saudi officials fired.

Khashoggi was a Washington Post columnist and lived in the United States, having fled Saudi Arabia last September.

"We seek justice and this will be revealed in all its naked truth, not through some ordinary steps but in all its naked truth", Erdogan said on Sunday, according to the semiofficial Anadolu news agency.

The apparent Saudi aim was for footage of the man to be picked up by CCTV and distributed, thereby bolstering claims made in the days after Khashoggi's disappearance on 2 October that he had left the consulate unscathed. Turkish sources say the authorities have an audio recording purportedly documenting Khashoggi's murder inside the consulate.

Britain, Germany and France have issued a joint statement condemning the killing of writer Jamal Khashoggi, saying there is an "urgent need for clarification of exactly what happened".

Three European powers - Germany, Britain and France - pressed Riyadh to provide facts, and Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany would not export arms to Saudi Arabia while uncertainty over Khashoggi's fate persisted. If the supply gap created by disruption in Libya, Nigeria, Venezuela - as well as USA sanctions against Iran - were to grow as large as 3 million barrels a day, Saudi Arabia would need to tap its oil reserves, he said.

Turkish media reports and officials maintain that a 15-member Saudi team flew to Istanbul on October 2, knowing Khashoggi would arrive for a document he needed to get married.

"I hope that Joe Kaeser will rethink this", the leader of the Social Democrats (SPD), Andrea Nahles, told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper on Sunday.

Over the weekend, Saudi Arabia said that Khashoggi was murdered but blamed a "rogue operation" for his killing. He also said he will talk soon to Prince Mohammed.

Several senior members of Trump's Republican Party said they believed Prince Mohammed, who has close relations with the president's son-in-law and advisor Jared Kushner, was linked to the killing.

"We have relatively limited spare capacities and we are using a significant part of them", he said.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan and the USA president Donald Trump have discussed Khashoggi case and Syria situation in a phone call, media reported.

"I am not satisfied until we find the answer".

Speaking late Saturday after a campaign rally in Nevada, Trump said he will be working with Congress on the U.S.' official response.
