After denying Khashoggi's death for almost three weeks, the kingdom last week said the columnist was accidentally killed after a discussion at the consulate turned into an altercation.

Turkey has dismissed Saudi efforts to blame rogue operatives and urged the kingdom to search "top to bottom" for those responsible for the killing, which has stirred global outrage and condemnation.

Pompeo briefed reporters Tuesday, after meeting with Saudi and Turkish officials in the wake of the death of Khashoggi.

"And they should be in big trouble", he concluded. After weeks of maintaining he was still alive, the authorities now say the 59-year-old was murdered in a rogue operation after visiting the Saudi consulate in Turkey.

He said the 15 "intelligence, security and forensic personnel" who flew to Istanbul just hours before the killing - returning home afterwards - should be sent back to face trial.

He told BBC Radio Leicester: "The engine stopped and I turned round and it made a bit of a whirring noise, like a grinding noise". Since news of her death has emerged, her social media accounts have been inundated with tributes and messages of condolence.

Saudi Arabia's latest announcement follows news that Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel has heard audio recordings believed to capture the journalist's murder. "These penalties will not be the last word on this matter from the United States".

Earlier, Turkish media reported that the Saudi Consulate General had prohibited Turkish police from inspecting the well during their search of the diplomatic mission and the residence of the Consul General.

He also said last Wednesday: "I'm not sure yet that it exists".

In an address to the Turkish parliament in Ankara on Tuesday, Mr Erdogan laid out what he said were the facts of the case in which the dissident Saudi writer was killed on October 2, outlining an apparently pre-planned murder.

Saudi Arabia's announcement came after the US' CIA Director Gina Haspel heard audio recordings purportedly of Khashoggi's interrogation and murder while she was in Turkey.

Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan spoke to Prince Mohammed on Wednesday and the two discussed the steps needed to bring to light all aspects of the killing of Khashoggi, a presidential source said.

The PM-designate has repeatedly denied that he was "detained" in Saudi Arabia, stressing that what happened is "a page turned".

The punishment is very selective and will affect only 21 Saudi individuals the US State Department believes were involved in the killing.

But he also said that does not want the United States to lose investments from Riyadh, a close USA ally.

Supreme Court sensational order on CBI
NGO Common Cause also filed a similar PIL seeking quashing of adverse orders by the government against Alok Verma . The Supreme Court restricted interim CBI chief M Nageswara Rao from taking policy decisions.

Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman "strongly said that he had nothing to do with this, this was at a lower level", US President Donald Trump said on Tuesday, adding he had spoken on Monday to the prince and to his father King Salman.
