British FM in Saudi Arabia for talks on Khashoggi, Yemen

President Tayyip Erdogan says recordings related to the killing of Jamal Khashoggi, which Turkey has shared with Western allies, are "appalling" and shocked a Saudi intelligence officer who listened to them.

The tours are the latest public outreach by the king, apparently meant to shore up the power of the crown prince, who has taken over day-to-day rule but whose global reputation was battered since Khashoggi was killed inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2.

In a statement released after the Times report, a Saudi official said Turkey had allowed them to listen to the audio, and "At no moment was there any reference to the mentioned phrase in the recordings".

Turkey says The Washington Post columnist, who had criticized the crown prince, was killed by a 15-member assassination squad sent from Riyadh.

"Saudi intelligence was really shocked by what they heard", Erdogan, who was in France to attend the Armistice Day commemorations, said.

Riyadh has arrested 18 people over the murder, including 15 members of the death squad.

Asked if some untrustworthy people still worked in the White House, she replied, "Yes". She declined to name anyone but said she had let the president know who they are.

The worldwide uproar over the murder shook Riyadh, which had initially sought to dismiss it as an immaterial incident.

Speaking to France 2, Le Drian said that was not that case as far as he knew, reported Reuters.

A representative of French intelligence listened to the audio recording and examined detailed information including a transcript on October 24, he added.

Canada had been fully informed of "what had to admit Turkey", he said during his visit in Paris.

US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman in a telephone call on Sunday that his government will hold those involved in the murder of dissident Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi accountable.

"What counts for us is to establish the complete truth. whatever one may think of the recordings the entire truth can't be based on the Turkish recordings".

Saudi Arabia has changed its explanation of the events surrounding Khashoggi's murder.

Following a meeting on Saturday in Paris, Trump and French President Emmanuel Macron agreed that Saudi authorities needed to shed full light on Khashoggi's murder, a French presidency source said.

However, it denied the ruling royal family's involvement in the killing.

There is still no consensus on how Khashoggi died.

US President Donald Trump has called the episode a "total fiasco", but has faced sharp criticism for being lax on the kingdom over Khashoggi's killing, showing reluctance to impose sanctions on the Saudis over the journalist's death. Traces of acid were found at the Saudi consul general's residence in Istanbul, where the body was believed to be disposed of with the use of chemicals.

After Saudi Arabia admitted that Khashoggi was killed in its Istanbul consulate, five high-ranking officials were dismissed, including bin Salman's media chief and the deputy head of the Saudi intelligence service.
