Another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold.

Turkish pro-government media had said for days that an official hit squad had traveled from Saudi Arabia to kill Khashoggi.

'He was killed in the consulate.

"The Turks have been talking more to the media than they have us", Corker said of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally. "We don't know where the body is", he said. "We are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder".

Earlier this week, Saudi authorities said that a fight had broken out between Washington Post journalist Jamal Khashoggi and his interlocutors at the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul, with the altercation leading to his death.

The men were supposed to inspect a mysterious 2-millimeter hole found in the hull of a Soyuz module, docked at the space station. They were to join three of their colleagues at the International Space Station and to deliver supplies to the orbiting outpost.

He said the case should be brought to an worldwide court as Saudi Arabia, as an authoritarian state on its way to reform, would likely hide the truth, as well as the murder mastermind, considering that its national interests were at stake.

Saudi Arabia acknowledged on Friday that there had been attempts to cover up the killing, but it has not released any information publicly on what happened to Khashoggi's body.

"Do I think he did it?"

The journalist has relatives still living in Saudi Arabia and three children who hold U.S. citizenship.

"The Crown Prince [Mohammed bin Salman] has denied this, he is not aware of this".

"This is a awful mistake, this is a bad tragedy". Graham said he doesn't believe the explanation and that there is no way such an act inside a government building would go unnoticed by top government officials.

Turkish media reports said more than a dozen Turkish staff members of the consulate - including technicians, drivers, telephone operators and accountants - were being interviewed by prosecutors.

Corker did not call for an end to arms sales to Saudi Arabia, but others have. "As the Foreign Secretary has said, this was a awful act and those responsible must be held to account", the foreign ministry said.

Last month, Germany approved €416 million ($480 million) worth of military exports to Saudi Arabia for 2018. King Salman, 82, had handed the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to him.

"We are not accusing anyone in advance, but we don't accept anything to remain covered [up]", added Celik.

"Yes, I think he did it", Bob Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told CNN.
