Amnesty International has symbolically renamed the street outside the Saudi embassy in London "Khashoggi Street", to mark the one-month anniversary of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi's killing.

"The murder of an innocent person is one crime", said Mr Aktay, who was the first government official contacted by Mr Khashoggi's fiancée, Hatice Cengiz, after he went missing.

"The incident that happened is very painful, for all Saudis", the Crown Prince said during a panel discussion last week.

Turkish prosecutors plan to seek the extradition of 18 suspects in the slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi so they can be prosecuted.

Erdogan, in an op-ed piece in the newspaper, said he did not believe "for a second" that King Salman had ordered "the hit" on Khashoggi and he also refrained from directly accusing the crown prince.

Within days of the mysterious disappearance Turkish officials had made anonymous leaks to the media about the killing of the journalist, a harsh critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Saudi agents killed Jamal Khashoggi after he entered the country's consulate in Istanbul for a routine paperwork errand.

Germany and Switzerland have vowed to halt arms sales to Saudi Arabia until the case is clarified.

Saudi Arabia had initially denied all accusations and insisted that Khashoggi left the consulate shortly after he arrived.

"According to the latest information we have, the reason they cut up the body is it was easier to dissolve it".

Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-Va., speaks at an event to remember Jamal Khashoggi in Washington.

The president said Turkey's efforts led the world to learn Khashoggi was killed in cold blood by a death squad and established his murder was premeditated. "We can't ignore this because we want to sell more weapons", said Ahmed Bedier of United Voices for America, a USA -based civil society group.

A group of US evangelicals, including former Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN), held a rare meeting Thursday with Saudi Arabia's crown prince Mohammed bin Salman at his palace.

On Thursday, US State Department deputy spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters that Khashoggi's remains should be located and returned to his family for a burial as soon as possible.

During the call with President Donald Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner and national security adviser John Bolton, Prince Mohammed said Khashoggi had been a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, a transnational Islamist organisation, the Washington Post reports.

Aktay's statement comes after the first official acknowledgement from the Istanbul chief prosecutor, Irfan Fidan, on Wednesday that Khashoggi's body was "dismembered and destroyed" after his death at the hands of a team of Saudi officials who flew in from Riyadh to kill him.

He was a Washington Post contributor living in self-imposed exile in the United States since 2017, and had voiced some mild criticism of Saudi Arabia's powerful Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman (MbS). She contended that the Trump administration has "taken a position that is devoid of moral foundation" because of fears of "upsetting deals or economic ties".
