Turkish news website Haberturk has released the first quotes from th e alleged audio recordings of Jamal Khashoggi's last moments before he was killed in the Saudi Consulate General in the city of Istanbul on 2 October.
Saudi King King Salman bin Abdulaziz al-Saud heaped praise on the kingdom's judiciary on Monday, in his first public remarks since Jamal Khashoggi's murder tipped the country into one of its worst global crises.
US Senator Lindsay Graham said on Sunday that Congress was considering ways to respond to the killing, adding that it was "impossible to believe" that Mohammad was not aware of the plan to kill Khashoggi.
Those banned are the 15 members of the squad suspected of killing Khashoggi in Riyadh's Istanbul consulate, and a further three suspected of organizing the murder, had been banned, Foreign Ministry spokesman Christofer Burger said, without naming them.
Saudi officials have denied the crown prince had anything to do with Khashoggi's killing, and Trump has called reports blaming the crown prince as "premature". They have been a great ally in our very important fight against Iran.
Trump then called the crimes against Khashoggi "terrible" as he laid out what actions the US has taken to punish those who participated in the torture and murder - like sanctions against 17 Saudis - before appearing to side with Saudi officials who have tagged Khashoggi as an "enemy of the state" and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood.
Mr Trump has distilled his "America First" worldview down to its very essence.

Instead, they need to start looking at the gap between themselves and the Champions League qualification places. Their next challenge is the European Cup, the Champions League.
Trump described Saudi Arabia as a "steadfast partner".
The State Department said publicly Saturday no final conclusions had been reached. He said he will consider their recommendations, but only if they are "consistent with the absolute security and safety of America".
But at the weekend, the state department said the USA government was yet to reach a final conclusion on the killing, with "numerous unanswered questions" remaining.
"There's overwhelming consensus that the leadership is involved - no one is debating it within the government", said the official, who saw a version of a Central Intelligence Agency report on the issue.
Defying pressure from U.S. politicians to impose tougher sanctions on Saudi Arabia, Mr Trump also said he would not cancel military contracts with the kingdom, saying such a "foolish" move would only benefit Russian Federation and China.
Last week, a Saudi public prosecutor sought death sentence for five Saudi officials charged in the murder.
However, in response to a parliamentary query, the government said previous accords meant no Eurofighter partner nation could block a sale of jets or parts to other countries.
