Saudi Arabia in hot waters as international leaders condemn, express skepticism around Khashoggi murder
The calls come after a leaked photograph, apparently taken from surveillance footage, showed Maher Abdulaziz Mutreb, a member of Prince Mohammed's entourage on foreign trips, at the consulate, just ahead of Khashoggi's arrival.
But the unnamed Turkish official toldCNN that the presence of Madani refuted the Saudis' claim that they only wanted to interrogate Khashoggi.
The Foreign Secretary saidSaudi Arabia's official claim that the journalist died in a fight at the Gulf kingdom's consulate in Istanbul was "not credible".
Video surveillance footage released Monday shows a Saudi operative wearing the clothes of slain journalist Jamal Khashoggi after he was killed, in an attempt to cover up the murder.
Meanwhile, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has pledged to provide a full account of Khashoggi's death in a speech slated for Tuesday.
Kushner, whose wide White House portfolio includes being tasked with brokering peace with the Middle East, insisted that Saudi Arabia remains "a very strong ally" and that "we've made a lot of progress".
As Saudi Arabia faced intensifying global scepticism over its story about the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a senior government official laid out a new version of the death inside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul that contradicts previous explanations.
"I believe the blood of Jamal will create peace in the region if Bin Salman is punished".
Trump initially said he believed the Saudi account, but on Saturday he said he still does not know where Khashoggi's body is.
An hour later, another Saudi official attributed the death to a chokehold, which the senior official reiterated.

He's going to probably over the next couple of hours - sometime prior to your show, but he will be getting back to me. Other reports suggest Saudi Arabia may admit he died during a botched interrogation .
Mr Hunt continued: 'The actions Britain and our allies take will depend on two things: firstly the credibility of the final explanation given by Saudi Arabia, and secondly on our confidence that such an appalling episode can not - and will not - be repeated'.
The state-run broadcaster TRT later also reported that a man who entered the consulate was seen leaving the building in Khashoggi's clothes.
"We can see the west's double standards on issues regarding human rights". Mr Erdogan said he would discuss an ongoing investigation into the killing with members of the cabinet at a meeting on Monday.
The newspaper says the calls went to the head of the crown prince's office, as well as a number in the United States.
To be governed by its own laws, the city's aim was "to be one of the most important economic and scientific capitals in the world", the Saudi official announcement said in October past year. "Nobody has told me he is not responsible", the US leader said. "A loss of influence in the region would cost us much more than the lack of arms sales", the minister said.

He also quipped that the "rain was a gift" as hundreds of people from the region turned out to see the Royal visitors. The boy then handed Meghan Markle a bunch of flowers, who thanked and embraced him too in another adorable moment.
Turkish pro-government media has said the team interrogated, tortured and decapitated Khashoggi but a pro-government columnist Abdulkadir Selvi on Monday wrote in Hurriyet daily that Khashoggi was strangled to death before he was cut up into 15 pieces. "And I think we're inching our way there".
