A member of the team allegedly sent to kill Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, was recorded saying on a phone to "tell your boss" that the mission had been carried out, the New York Times reports.

Saudi Arabia has said it arrested 18 people and dismissed five senior government officials as part of an investigation into Khashoggi's killing.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Saturday that copies of these recordings had been given to "to Saudi Arabia, to the United States, Germans, French and British, all of them".

"Canada's intelligence agencies have been working very closely on this issue with Turkish intelligence, Canada has been fully briefed on what Turkey had to share", Trudeau said.

Canadian intelligence has heard an audio recording of the killing of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has confirmed.

Ankara has shared voice recordings linked to the murder with a number of countries including Saudi Arabia as well as the United States and its Western allies.

After insisting for more than two weeks that Khashoggi had left the consulate, it then admitted the journalist had died in a fistfight inside the building.

On early Monday, Le Drian said that France was not in possession of the recordings as far as he was aware, contradicting remarks by President Erdoğan. At that time, President Trump said, "The cover-up was the worst in the history of cover-ups".

In a separate development on Monday, Turkey reacted angrily after French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian contradicted Mr Erdogan's assertion that France had received an audio recording from the consulate and accused the Turkish leader of playing "political games".

The murder of Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor and critic of Prince Mohammed, has provoked little concrete action by world powers against Saudi Arabia, the world's largest oil exporter and a supporter of Washington's plans to contain Iranian influence across the Middle East.

A new report indicates that Central Intelligence Agency director Gina Haspel was presented with an audio recording last month that suggests a direct link between Jamal Khashoggi's death and the Saudi Arabian royal family.

It has been reported that Khashoggi was strangled, dismembered and his body dissolved in chemicals.

When asked if the audio links Khashoggi's murder to the crown prince, Bolton said: "That's not the conclusion I think that the people who heard it have come to, and that's certainly not the position of the Saudi government". It is clearly unacceptable that the full circumstances behind his murder still remain unclear, " Hunt said in a statement ahead of landing in Riyadh.

The crown prince has come under scrutiny for having knowledge of the killing, which involved some members of his security entourage.

The UK foreign secretary, Jeremy Hunt, travelled to Riyadh and Abu Dhabi on Monday for talks concerning both the Khashoggi investigation and the violence in Hodeidah, a key port city in Yemen.

He met with King Salman and was expected to meet the crown prince and press Saudi authorities to fully cooperate with Turkish investigators.
