Turkey's Erdogan reveals part of Khashoggi killing audio

Audio tapes suggest close MBS aides involved in Khashoggi killing - Erdogan

Ankara, however, insists the journalist was assassinated by a "hit squad" dispatched from Saudi Arabia.

Earlier reports have suggested that the alleged perpetrators called up an aide of the Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and informed him that their mission was accomplished.

And it declares that there is no statutory authorization for U.S. involvement in hostilities in Yemen's civil war and supports the end of air-to-air refuelling of Saudi-led coalition aircraft operating in Yemen.

Years of conflict have led to what the United Nations calls the worst humanitarian crisis in the world.

It was the first time either chamber of Congress had backed a resolution to withdraw United States forces from a military engagement under the War Powers Act.

"If we set the precedent that even an operation such as the refueling of aircraft of allied countries needs congressional authority, we would severely limit the executive branch's ability to respond to worldwide crises and safeguard our global national security interests", Alaska Republican Dan Sullivan said.

Seven of Trump's fellow Republicans joined Senate Democrats to back the measure.

Erdogan also slammed Riyadh for its changing account of how Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist and prominent critic of Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, was murdered at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. But Republican leaders in the House may put a halt to the push and ultimately side with Trump.

Saudi Arabia has said the prince had no prior knowledge of the murder. That is a strong statement.

"You have to be willfully blind not to come to the conclusion that this was orchestrated and organized by people under the command of MBS and that he was intrinsically involved in the demise of Mr. Khashoggi", said Republican Sen.

Trump has said he wants Washington to stand by the Saudi government and the prince, despite the Central Intelligence Agency assessment that it was probably the prince who ordered Khashoggi's killing. He promised to veto the war powers resolution.

"Saudi Arabia wanted to take away [the evidence of the murder], but sorry, it is too much".

Administration officials also see Saudi support as a linchpin for an Israeli-Palestinian peace plan yet to be unveiled by the Trump administration. Khashoggi was a USA resident and columnist for The Washington Post.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Friday again defended U.S. ties with Saudi Arabia on national security grounds after the Senate voted to end support to the kingdom's war in Yemen.

After hours of passionate debate Thursday, the Republican-led Senate voted 56-41 to approve the first resolution. The measure could pass the Senate again, given the bipartisan support it received on Thursday, even though Trump's Republicans will have a larger majority in the upper chamber next year.

"We saw the vote yesterday".

There was no immediate word from House leadership on whether they would allow a vote on either resolution.

"Saudi Arabia is an authoritarian state".

Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi said her members supported congressional action.
