The kingdom has faced intensifying worldwide pressure to be transparent about the death of Khashoggi, a columnist for The Washington Post who was a critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Khashoggi, who lived in the United States and wrote columns for the Washington Post, went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2 to collect some documents, but he never reappeared.

Khashoggi was killed after visiting the Istanbul consulate on October 2, Saudi officials have acknowledged.

But questions remain, and most recently the Washington Post reported that Salman claimed in a phone call with USA officials that Khashoggi was unsafe and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, which Khashoggi's family denies.

Officials in the Trump administration have discussed proposals like urging King Salman, the 82-year-old father of the crown prince, to appoint a strong prime minister or other senior official to help oversee day-to-day governance or foreign policy, according to three officials familiar with the deliberations.

What was said in the crown prince's alleged phone call?

Netanyahu has refrained from publicly weighing in on the murder by Saudi agents of journalist and regime critic Khashoggi at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

UK Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt also said it was an appalling act, adding that it had "possibly" given the United States and the UK a chance to put new pressure on Saudi Arabia over other issues.

TRT World's Sally Ayhan spoke to the founder of The Council on American-Islamic Relations, Nihad Awad, at the memorial service for Jamal Khashoggi.

Authorities are looking for the plane's wreckage and "black boxes", which could hold valuable clues as to why the flight crashed . Investigators say that is also indicated by the search and rescue effort finding many body parts rather than intact victims.

US State Department spokesman Robert Palladino on Thursday called for Khashoggi's remains to be located and returned to his family for burial as soon as possible.

"The victim's body was dismembered and destroyed following his death by suffocation", the statement said.

"It is now up to the worldwide community to bring the perpetrators to justice".

Istanbul's chief prosecutor, Irfan Fidan, said this week that Khashoggi was immediately strangled when he arrived at the consulate.

Aktay was first government official that Hatice Cengiz, Khashoggi's fiancee, called when he didn't emerge from the consulate.
