Officials outside the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, where Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi was last seen alive.

TASI, the largest Arab bourse, is 8.4 percent higher on the year.

After first insisting Khashoggi left the consulate unharmed, Saudi authorities have given various accounts before on Thursday acknowledging that evidence from Turkey indicates the killing was premeditated.

It was not immediately clear how Thursday's announcement from Riyadh would affect Washington's thinking amid bipartisan demands from Congress for severe punishment of Saudi Arabia - the nation at the center of Trump's Middle East policy.

On Wednesday, the crown prince called the killing of Khashoggi a "heinous crime that can not be justified".

Turkish police were investigating water samples from a well at the consulate on Thursday after initially being denied access, broadcaster CNN Turk said.

The Saudi disclosure came after Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel heard an audio recording of the killing during a fact-finding visit to Turkey this week.

Jamal Khashoggi son was brought to the royal court to meet with Saudi King Salman [facial expressions of Jamal Khashoggi's son bore a forced and arranged meeting with the king], in the meeting King Salman offered the kingdom deepest condolences to the Khashoggi's family over the death of Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump has also blamed the Saudi de facto leader, who is known in media as "MBS", for the killing of Khashoggi.

President Donald Trump has said that if anyone in Saudi Arabia knew about what had happened, "it would be" the crown prince.

Saudi Arabia's pro-government Okaz newspaper said Salah - a dual US-Saudi citizen - departed the kingdom on Wednesday, without offering any details.

Khashoggi entered the Saudi consulate in Turkey's Istanbul on October 2 to obtain documentation for his upcoming marriage, but he never left the place.

Saudi Arabia initially insisted Khashoggi had walked out of the consulate after visiting the building on October 2.

The Saudi government is accused of ordering and carrying out the killing inside the country's embassy in Turkey.

Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu said Thursday that while Turkey did not intend to initiate an investigation by an worldwide court, it would share information if one was launched.

Turkey has long dismissed the Saudi assertion of an accidental death and has pressed the kingdom to concede that Khashoggi was deliberately targeted for death.

It's unclear when the president will make a final determination on the Khashoggi case.

Saudi Energy Minister Khalid Al Falih conceded on Wednesday that the scandal over Khashoggi had hurt the kingdom's image.

During the vigil, a friend of Khashoggi and advisor to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Yasin Aktay, said that "no one can sweep this affair under the rug".
