Trump, Turkey question Saudi prince over Khashoggi death

In his toughest comments yet U.S. President Donald Trump is laying the responsibility of Jamal's Khashoggi's killing on the Saudi Crown Prince.

Telling the Wall Street Journal that Prince Mohammed bin Salman bears ultimate responsibility for the operation that led to his killing, because he's quote "running things" in Saudi Arabia.

Turkey's president may have stopped short of blaming the powerful crown prince, but his lawmakers are pointing the finger too.

One of Erdogan's advisers says Riyadh's de facto ruler has quote "blood on his hands".

Riyadh has blamed a "rogue operation" for the death of the prominent Saudi journalist in their Istanbul consulate.

That's been dismissed by Erdogan who is calling it a well-planned savage murder.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) REUTERS CORRESPONDENT, EMILY WITHER, SAYING: "It's been three weeks since Khashoggi was killed and still investigators are searching for the journalist's body.

Police are now focusing in on a well in the back garden of the Saudi consul general's house.

It's about a 5 minute walk from the Saudi consulate.

At first Saudi officials refused to allow the search to take part and that's just one of a number of delays since this investigation started." Turkish authorities have been pretty tight lipped publicly on the Turkish investigation but not when it comes to the pro-government press here.

With a steady drip of leaked information from anonymous sources local media have had the world gripped.

The most shocking leak that there's an alleged audio recording of the journalist's killing; Notably not mentioned by Erdogan in his detailed address to parliament about the investigation on Tuesday (October 23).

There's also been a series of CCTV leaks showing the group of 15 Saudi nationals that arrived in Turkey and entered the consulate on the day Khashoggi's was killed.

Including this one: It appears to show a man entering the Saudi Arabia consulate while Khashoggi was inside.

Only to leave hours later through the back door in what appears to be his clothes.

Erdogan insisting Wednesday (October 24) his country would not allow those responsible for his killing to avoid justice.

Keeping up pressure on Riyadh in a death that could spark a regional crisis.

For the kingdom's allies the question is whether it tarnishes the image of someone who's been hailed the Kingdom's great reformer.
