"And finally, the injustice he has caused by killing the journalist Jamal Khashoggi", it added.

"This has touched a nerve because it is Saudi Arabia, it is the United States", and there are fears he has been killed, Mahoney said. "I've seen no transcript", he told reporters during a trip to Latin America.

President Trump has been publicly asking to hear the recording.

When asked whether he believes Khashoggi is dead, the president told reporters, "It certainly looks that way to me".

The Trump administration faces growing bipartisan outrage in Congress over Saudi Arabia's role in Mr Khashoggi's disappearance.

"We're all going to get to see the response from Saudi Arabia to this".

The Saudis have dismissed the reports but have not provided an explanation as to what happened to the writer.

US President Donald Trump has said it looks like Saudi Arabia's missing dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi is dead and warned of "very severe" consequences if the kingdom is responsible.

"Until the full truth about Mr. Khashoggi is disclosed, US businesses should shun the Saudi regime and Congress should block all military sales", it added.

Turkish police on Wednesday also carried out a search of the residence of the Saudi consul to Istanbul, Mohammed al-Otaibi, a day after he flew out of Istanbul for Riyadh.

Saudi officials deny any involvement in his disappearance.

Turkish media claim authorities have audio that shows he was tortured and murdered in the building after a 15-man "hit squad" entered the country.

Early in the Turkish investigation, focus was given to the movements of 14 vehicles that came and left the consulate the day of Khashoggi's disappearance. "They are an important strategic alliance of the United States and we need to be mindful of that as well", he said. "If they knew about it, that would be bad".

"Given the reports surrounding Mr Khashoggi's disappearance, America's relationship with Saudi Arabia ought to be carefully scrutinised, as should any possible sale of USA weapons to Saudi Arabia", he said. Khashoggi refused, and was killed. "Unfortunately, this kind of news which related with his killing in a barbaric way is coming out".

Khashoggi has not been seen since entering the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on October 2. Khashoggi arrived at the consulate several hours later at 1:14 p.m., then disappeared while his fiancee waited for him outside.

Liam Fox, the worldwide trade secretary, has pulled out of next week's "Davos in the Desert" summit in Riyadh amid allegations that Saudi Arabia murdered Jamal Khashoggi, the missing journalist.

In his column, Khashoggi criticized the worldwide community for ignoring the ongoing abuses by governments in the Middle East.
