Hatice Cengiz, the fiancee of the killed Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, reacts as she speaks during a memorial event for her fiancee at the Mechanical Engineers Institute in London, Monday Oct. 29, 2018. According to his fiancee, he went there to collect a document for his upcoming marriage. The case has brought near unprecedented worldwide scrutiny of Saudi Arabia and its powerful crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, whom Khashoggi had criticised.

Mr Celik took aim at Saudi officials, saying it was simply not possible that they had not found the journalist's body after almost a month of investigations.

Riyadh calls the claim "baseless".

There is growing criticism of U.S. military support for Saudi Arabia's Yemen air campaign in the aftermath of the killing of Khashoggi in the Saudi Consulate in Turkey.

Saudi officials characterize the killing as a rogue operation carried out by Saudi agents who exceeded their authority.

The senators say in the letter Tuesday that the Post reported that US intelligence intercepted Saudi communications discussing a plan to capture the columnist.

Foreign minister Adel al Jubeir has described the worldwide outcry over the killing as "hysterical" - and told critics they should should wait until Riyadh has completed its investigation before ascribing blame.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who has demanded more information from Saudi Arabia, has said Mr Fidan had asked Mr Mojeb to disclose who sent a 15-strong team from Riyadh which is suspected of involvement in the killing. "It was a total fiasco", he later added.

In his first public comments since October 2, the crown prince addresses the investment summit in Riyadh, denouncing Khashoggi's murder and vowing "justice will prevail".

What did the prosecutor say?

"Either the Saudi foreign minister or the 18 suspects must explain who the local co-conspirators are".

The Saudi chief prosecutor, Saud al-Mujeb, left for the airport and was scheduled to return to Saudi Arabia.

Al-Mojeb reportedly left Turkey on Wednesday after meeting with his Turkish colleagues and inspecting the Saudi consulate, where Khashoggi was last seen on October 2.

Jamal Khashoggi, the Washington Post columnist, was strangled as soon as he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul and his body was "dismembered and destroyed", a Turkish prosecutor said Wednesday. This is the first official confirmation of the murder made by the Turkish officials.

Abdulhamit Gul said that Saudi Arabia's top prosecutor - who spent three days in Istanbul as part of joint Turkish-Saudi efforts to investigate the killing - had failed to answer Turkish investigators' questions about the location of the writer's remains as well as who ordered the killing.
