Saudi Arabia claims that journalist Jamal Khashoggi died as a result of a fist fight with officials at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul, Turkey, according to an announcement made on Saudi state television.
White House press secretary Sarah Sanders saying Mr Khashoggi's death was a "tragic incident".
Mr Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist, lived in the U.S., having fled Saudi Arabia in September past year.
