Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman will head to the G20 summit as part of a foreign trip, it quoted Saudi Energy Minister Khalid al-Falih as saying.

A Turkish daily says the audio recordings related to the gruesome murder of Saudi dissident journalist Jamal Khashoggi - which is widely believed to have been ordered by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman - are expected to be released this week, and that the revelations will "shake the world" and "turn the Saudi palace upside down".

A Saudi prosecutor said Khashoggi's body had been dismembered, removed from the diplomatic mission and handed to an unidentified "local cooperator".

"Today or this week seems to be the most convenient time to do this", it said. At the weekend, we said that we were expecting further clarification.
