'CIA report says Saudi crown prince messaged adviser on Jamal Khashoggi'

The crown prince enjoyed a buoyant welcome at the G20 on Friday from Putin, the two exchanging a high-five and grinning broadly as if they were long-lost friends.

In his conversation with Saudi Arabia's Prince Mohammed bin Salman, Trudeau said better answers about the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi were required.

Mr. Faurie, whose ministry had earlier tried to shield the prince from a criminal complaint by invoking his "special immunity", said the encounter with Mr. Macri was motivated by the nations' close commercial ties.

French President Emmanuel Macron told the prince in a separate meeting that Europeans will insist on worldwide experts being part of the investigation into Khashoggi's killing. That meeting was set to take place late Friday.

Turkey handed it to the United States, Saudi Arabia, the United Kingdom - all those who wanted.

The 33-year-old was seen speaking with Trump, although the White House said they only exchanged "pleasantries".

Erdogan said the Saudis have refused to help Turkish prosecutors who sought information including the whereabouts of Khashoggi's body and the identities of accomplices said to have supported the visiting Saudi hit squad. World leaders who meet with the Crown Prince should raise these serious allegations.

The Prime Minister met with the Saudi prince on the first day of the G20 summit of world leaders in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

"For me, it is obvious that this is an issue that concerns not just Canada but a number of our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies", Trudeau said Saturday.

Putin and Prince Mohammed are due to hold bilateral talks on Saturday, according to Kremlin documents seen by Reuters.

Many protesters took aim at Trump, chanting, "Go away Trump" and creating effigies of the U.S. president, such as this rendition above made of recycled materials.

Kirill Dmitriev, the chief of Russia's sovereign wealth fund, told reporters that Putin would meet the prince Saturday and discuss boosting Saudi Arabia's $2 billion investment in Russian Federation.

Later, an Elysee Palace official said the president had conveyed a "very firm" message on the need for global involvement in the Khashoggi investigation, now the subject of two separate probes by Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

China "will continue to stick together with the Arab country on issues involving their core interests", Xinhua quoted Xi as telling the prince.
