Many speakers due to attend the FII - mostly those from Western organizations - had pulled out due to allegations the Saudi government was complicit in Khashoggi's death.

The evidence of Turkish investigators "indicates that the suspects in the incident had committed their act with a premeditated intention", al-Mojeb said.

An unnamed Saudi official told Reuters news agency on Sunday that Khashoggi had died in a chokehold after resisting attempts to return him to Saudi Arabia.

Hours earlier US President Donald Trump, in his toughest comments yet, told the Wall Street Journal that the crown prince bore ultimate responsibility for the operation that led to Khashoggi's killing.

Saudi King Salman, right, and Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, second right, receive Sahel, a family member, and Salah, a son, of Jamal Khashoggi, in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, on October 23, 2018.

Video images and audio tapes as well as evidence gathered from the consulate and the consul's residence were shared with Haspel during the briefing at the Turkish Intelligence Organization (MIT), Sabah newspaper reported. France has said it will consider sanctions against Saudi Arabia if its intelligence services find Riyadh was behind Khashoggi's death.

Erdogan said the killing was planned from when Khashoggi, 59, first went to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on September 28 to obtain documents necessary for his marriage.

Saudi prosecutors investigating the murder of activist Jamal Khashoggi are now calling his death a premeditated crime. Khashoggi, who lived in self-imposed exile in the United States for almost a year before his death, had written critically of Prince Mohammed's crackdown on dissent.

"They had a very bad original concept, it was carried out poorly, and the coverup was the worst in the history of coverups", he said in a 40-minute Oval Office appearance with Vice President Pence and lawmakers.

Tabling new allegations that Saudi officials scoped out rural areas outside Istanbul the day before Khashoggi's murder, the president said Riyadh's suggestion that the killing was a rogue extradition operation gone wrong was unsatisfactory and Turkey's investigation was ongoing.

The death of Khashoggi, a US resident and Washington Post columnist, has sparked global outrage and threatened relations between Riyadh and Washington as well as other Western nations.

A team of Saudi Arabian agents began arriving in Turkey the day before journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed, President Tayyip Erdogan said on Tuesday.

For Saudi Arabia's allies, the question will be whether they believe that Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who has painted himself as a reformer, has any culpability.

Turkey is pushing the Saudi government to reveal exactly who ordered the killing, fueling suspicions that Prince Mohammed was involved even though he condemned it as "heinous" at the Riyadh forum.

Visa records are confidential and Mr Pompeo was not more specific about who the revocations would affect, but the State Department later said 21 "Saudi suspects" would have visas revoked or would be declared ineligible to enter the US.

"Saudi Arabia has taken an important step by admitting the murder".

Reports of a grizzly torture and dismemberment have surfaced, and that parts of Khashoggi's body were found in a garden behind the consulate where he was murdered. "If these individuals have visas, they are being revoked", the spokesperson said, following the conversation between May and King Salman.
