His comments are likely to heighten speculation that Turkey may be about to reveal some of the results of its investigations into the killing of the dissident journalist, a Washington Post columnist and USA resident, who disappeared after entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on Oct.2.

"There obviously was a tremendous mistake made, and what compounded the mistake was the attempt to try to cover up", he said, adding, "That is unacceptable in any government".

Mr Trump initially said he believed the Saudi account, but has now said he still does not know where Mr Khashoggi's body is.

Since the news of Khashoggi's disappearance came out, Trump indicated that he would consider sanctions or other means to penalize Saudi Arabia, but wouldn't want to cancel the $450 billion in purchases and investments the kingdom promised the United States, which includes a $110 billion arms contract.

According to the minister, the prosecutor determined "that the reports that were originally filed were wrong, and that there was something that happened that was criminal".

The crown prince had no knowledge of the specific operation that resulted in Khashoggi's death, a Saudi official familiar with the Saudi investigation said.

[Turkey's president pressured the Saudis to account for Khashoggi's death] Khashoggi, a resident of Virginia, vanished on the afternoon of October 2, after visiting the Saudi Consulate to obtain documents that would allow him to remarry.

Trump tweeted that the Saudi Crown Prince "told me that he has already started, and will rapidly expand, a full and complete investigation into this matter".

"The Kingdom and all involved in this brutal murder must be held accountable, and if the Trump Administration will not take the lead, Congress must", Schiff said.

Saudi Arabia has arrested 18 people whom they claim are connected with the incident.

I would like to comment on the current situation regarding the journalist Jamal Khashoggi's disappearance.

Democratic Representative Adam Schiff of California said Saudi Arabia's claim that Mr Khashoggi died in a brawl was not credible.

Earlier, Trump said that "I have no financial interests in Saudi Arabia" - but in fact he has boasted in the past that "I make a lot of money with them". When the media reported a few days later that he had been killed there, they called the accusations "baseless". "We are determined to punish those who are responsible for this murder".

Saudi Arabia is the UK's key ally in the region and also a significant trading partner.

Mr Khashoggi, a prominent journalist and royal court insider for decades in Saudi Arabia, had written columns critical of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and the kingdom's direction while living in self-imposed exile in the US. Speaking late Saturday after a campaign rally in Nevada, Trump said he needs to learn more about the killing and will be working with Congress on the US response. The Saudi statements on Saturday did not address what happened to the body.
