Saudi Arabia's announcement that suspects are in custody over the death of journalist Jamal Khashoggi is a "good first step", Donald Trump has said, adding that he would work with Congress on a United States response.
The Saudi government has fired five intelligence officials, including Deputy Chief of General Intelligence Ahmad bin Hassan Asiri and royal court advisor Abdullah Al-Qahtani.
"Why 15 people came. why 18 people were detained. All of this needs to be explained in all its details", Erdogan said.
He said Saudi Arabia does not know how Mr Khashoggi was killed or where his body is, adding the country is still working on finding out where Mr Khashoggi's body is and determining what happened. Our condolences go out to them.
Also Sunday, images that were obtained by TRT World, a Turkish news channel that broadcasts in English, showed Khashoggi as he arrived at a police barrier before entering the consulate on October 2. She alerted authorities after the writer did not emerge from the building.
Trump's attempt to distance himself from profiting from Saudi Arabia is undercut by a long record showing deals his companies made with that country's government and citizens, media reports said.

Mega Millions jackpot soars to $900 million, second-highest
N.C. officials said that in Tuesday's drawing, 93,726 tickets sold in North Carolina won a prize, ranging from $2 to $10,000. That honor goes to a 2016 Powerball jackpot, which clocked in at $1.586 billion (although it was shared by three winners).
"This was an operation where individuals ended up exceeding the authorities and responsibilities they had. That is unacceptable to the government".
On Friday, asked if he believed whether the Saudi explanation that Mr Khashoggi was killed during a "fistfight" with more than a dozen agents was credible, he said: "I do".
And it happened, and I hate to tell you, over the last 18 months and we're now the biggest in the world, Trump said.
"Obviously if he's gone forth and murdered this journalist, he's now crossed the line, and there has to be a punishment and a price to pay for that".
"He's kind of a decent guy", Gerald Feierstein, a former USA ambassador to Yemen from 2010 to 2013, said of Assiri on Thursday. "We expect transparency from Saudi Arabia regarding the circumstances of the death and its background", the two leaders said in a statement issued by the Foreign Ministry.
Mr Gardiner acknowledged there were a "lot of jobs" in the United Kingdom linked to the defence trade but said "this is about who we are as a country". Rand Paul (R-Ky.) labeled the Saudi account "insulting", arguing no one "analyzing this with any type of intelligent background" would believe "a fist fight led to a dismemberment with a bone saw".
But even if the Saudis keep Trump on their side, they could face a reckoning from the U.S. Congress, where Republicans and Democrats alike have expressed outrage over the killing.
