Khashoggi's oldest son arrived in the United States

The oldest son of the murdered Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi has arrived at the United States from Saudi Arabia, with family members.

Salah Khashoggi had previously failed to leave Saudi Arabia because of his father's criticism of leadership.

Jamal Khashoggi was murdered in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul three weeks ago, investigators said.

Saudi prosecutors travel to Turkey on Sunday as part of the investigation.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the move in a television speech and allowed the prosecutor to meet Istanbul's prosecuting authorities.

Turkey also had other evidence, which had not yet been disclosed, said Erdogan.

And he urged Saudi Arabia to reveal the location of Jamal Khashoggi, as well as the name of an alleged "local cooperation operator" involved in disposing of it.

The Saudi prosecutor, Sheikh Saud al-Mojeb, said Thursday that the killing was foreseen in a further development of the Saudi narrative.

Saudi officials have also blamed "villain" agents as Riyadh has struggled to give a credible explanation of how Jamal Khashoggi met his end.
