Saudi Arabia has again changed its explanation for the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi inside Riyadh's Istanbul consulate, now saying it was "premeditated," based on information it had received from Turkey.

The statement Thursday, carried by the Saudi Press Agency, was issued by the Saudi public prosecutor.

What was left unclear was who premeditated the killing. The statement said, "The public prosecution continues its investigation with suspects ... to complete the course of justice." The Saudis fired five officials linked to the killing and have arrested 18 suspects.

International critics, including U.S. President Donald Trump, have said that the country's de facto ruler, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, bears ultimate responsibility for the killing.

Saudi officials at first said that Khashoggi walked out of the consulate three weeks ago and that they did not know his whereabouts. Then they said he died in a fistfight in the consulate. Most recently, the Saudis said Khashoggi was killed in a chokehold when he tried to leave the consulate to call for help.

Even as the Saudis admitted the killing was premeditated, Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said, "There are still questions that need answers," including why the Saudis arrested the 18 suspects.

"Who gave them the orders?" he asked. "You admit they did it, but why are they not saying" where the body is. "His family also wants to know and pay their final tribute."

The Turkish minister renewed the demand by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that those arrested in the case stand trial in Istanbul.

U.S. CIA Director Gina Haspel, who traveled to Turkey to investigate Khashoggi's death, has reportedly listened to the audio recording of his torture and killing, according to pro-government media in Turkey and The Washington Post.

Haspel is due to brief U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday.
