The Saudi rulers met with Khashoggi's son Salah and brother Sahel at the royal palace, state-run news agency SPA reported. 

Khashoggi went missing on October 2 when he entered the consulate in Istanbul. After weeks of denying knowledge of his fate, Saudi officials said the prominent journalist was killed in a "rogue operation".

Yesterday, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz and Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman made a condolence call to murdered journalist Jamal Khashoggi's son. 

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has demanded to know who gave the order to kill Saudi journalist.

Erdogan also demanded to know where Khashoggi's corpse is. In a speech to Turkey's ruling party lawmakers, he asked how Saudi Arabia cannot know where Khashoggi's body is if it has admitted to killing him?
