"Defending freedom of the press is a key priority for Finland", the tweet read.

TRT World has obtained exclusive CCTV pictures of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi just minutes before he entered the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul.

Corker said he was waiting for investigations to be completed and hoped that Turkey would share any audio tapes of the killing of Khashoggi in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

A number of United States lawmakers, including a Republican highly critical of the Saudis, Senator Lindsey Graham, said they were sceptical about the report on the journalist's death.

A member of the team then dressed in Khashoggi's clothes to make it appear as if he had left the consulate, the official told the news agency.

After denying any involvement in the 59-year-old's disappearance for two weeks, Saudi Arabia announced over the weekend that Khashoggi - a critic of Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman - had died during a fight in the building.

Riyadh on Saturday admitted after days of denials that dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi was killed inside its consulate in Istanbul earlier this month, allegedly after a quarrel and a brawl with unidentified men. "All of this needs to be explained in all its details", Erdogan said. The monarch also relieved deputy intelligence chief Gen. Ahmed al-Assiri.

"Saudi Arabia has been a great ally, but what happened is unacceptable", Trump said.

The incident had threatened to create a diplomatic crisis with the USA, which sees its alliance with Riyadh as the cornerstone of its Middle East policy, and Turkey, which has tenuous ties with Saudi Arabia.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said many questions "remain unanswered", echoing calls for an investigation.

In an interview with the Washington Post, Mr Trump said that "obviously there's been deception, and there's been lies".

"Do I think he did it?"

CNN reports Saudi set up a commission to investigate and the crown prince will head it.
