Saudi officials called it a "rogue operation", but Western officials have demanded answers. "This was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding the authorities and responsibilities they had", Jubeir said on the U.S. broadcaster, Fox. "They made the mistake when they killed Jamal Khashoggi in the consulate and they tried to cover up for it", he said.

On the day of Khashoggi's disappearance, 15 other Saudis, including several officials, arrived in Istanbul on two planes and visited the consulate while he was still inside, according to Turkish police sources.

Trump was quoted in the Post over the weekend as playing down Kushner's relations with Saudi Arabia and the crown prince. They said the "hypotheses" proposed so far in the Saudi investigation need to be backed by facts to be considered credible.

"This is an aberration", al-Jubeir said in the Fox television interview.

A Saudi friend of Khashoggi - who was in frequent touch with him before his death - said that Khashoggi's son, Salah, has been under a travel ban and barred from leaving the kingdom since previous year as a result of his father's criticism of the government.

The unnamed official claimed the Saudi nationals were sent to confront Mr Khashoggi.

"Saudi Arabia is a very responsible country, for decades we used our oil policy as a responsible economic tool and isolated it from politics", Mr Al Falih said.

"The individuals who did this did this outside the scope of their authority", he added. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan also has promised that details of Khashoggi's killing "will be revealed in all its nakedness" in an address he'll make before parliament around the same time Tuesday. However, pro-government newspapers have been leaking information about Khashoggi's killing, apparently with the help of Turkish security forces.

Mutreb's name also matches that of a first secretary who once served as a diplomat at the Saudi Embassy in London, according to a 2007 list compiled by the British Foreign Office. King Salman, 82, has handed the day-to-day running of Saudi Arabia to him.
