Jamal Khashoggi looks on during a press conference in the Bahraini capital Manama

Though global pressure forced Saudi Arabia to admit that Khashoggi was killed at the consulate, Riyadh hasn't been able to offer any clue to what happened to his body.

Before leaving Turkey for the trip, Erdogan said that Saudi Arabia knows the killer of Khashoggi is among a group of 15 people who arrived in his country the day before the October 2 slaying.

"Canada has been fully briefed up on what Turkey had to share", Trudeau said during a press conference at the Canadian Embassy in Paris. "This is impossible. I also told Mr Trump [US President] that there is no need to look around for his murderers", Turkey's president said.

Riyadh has arrested 18 people over the murder, including 15 members of the death squad.

Erdogan told reporters Monday that the recording had been played to officials from Saudi Arabia, the United States, France, Canada, Germany and Britain.

Meanwhile, the Prime Minister of Canada Justin Trudeau, as the first Western head of state or government confirmed that the intelligence belongs to the service of his country recordings of the killing Khashoggis.

A Saudi operative's comments to a royal aide after the killing of the journalist Jamal Khashoggi is among the strongest evidence yet tying Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman to his death.

Asked if that meant Erdogan was lying, the minister replied: "It means that he has a political game to play in these circumstances".

CNN sues President Trump on behalf of reporter
As for Acosta, CNN sent him to Paris to cover Trump's visit to France to make the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I. The president admonished him as "a rude, awful person", one of several attacks and insults he hurled at.

Turkey has shared with Riyadh, Washington and other countries- recordings claimed to be linked to the case of Khashoggi.

Bolton, speaking on the sidelines of a regional summit in Singapore, said that while he had not listened to the tape himself, "those who have listened to it" concluded that Saudi Arabia's de facto ruler is not implicated.

"We gave the tapes".

The Turkish president told reporters on his plane back from France that he discussed the Khashoggi case with French, German and United States leaders over dinner.

Schiff further vowed to probe Khashoggi's killing and examine Saudi Arabia's actions in the Middle East, including its military campaign in Yemen, when he takes charge of the House Intelligence Committee.

President Erdogan said a 15-member team that Turkey says was sent to kill Mr Khashoggi know who is behind the killing as well as the location of his remains.

Erdogan said it was clear the murder had been planned, and that the order came from the top level of Saudi authorities but that he could not think such a thing of King Salman. Traces of acid were found at the Saudi consul general's residence in Istanbul, where the body was believed to be disposed of with the use of chemicals.

After two weeks of denials that Riyadh had anything to do with Khashoggi's disappearance, the kingdom eventually admitted he had died in a fight, before changing its story again to say the Turkish investigation's findings indicate his killing was premeditated.
