Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has demanded that Saudi Arabia extradite suspects in the killing in Istanbul of journalist Jamal Khashoggi, taking to task the Kingdom's Crown Prince.

Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman's presence at the summit of the group of 20 powers in Buenos Aires demonstrated he was firmly in control, as he met with western leaders and sealed an oil pact with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Saudi Arabia has said that 21 people are in custody and vowed to keep probing the killing of Khashoggi, who was killed and dismembered after visiting the kingdom's Istanbul consulate to handle paperwork for his planned wedding.

Erdogan told reporters in Buenos Aires that it's essential that these people are tried in Turkey in order to eliminate any question marks that the international community may have.
