Saudi royal family members against Bin Salman

Saudi Arabia's King Salman has reiterated the kingdom's support for United Nations efforts to end the war, while Yemen's Riyadh-backed Government expressed its willingness to take part in the next round of consultations.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian on Monday said his country will impose sanctions on Saudi Arabia over the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Additionally on Monday, Turkish newspaper Haberturk reported that the audio recordings of Khashoggi's murder indicate that he was accosted by four members of a Saudi hit squad shortly after he entered the kingdom's Istanbul consulate.

The king said the Palestinian issue would remain a "top priority for the kingdom", until they "get their rights", according to Saudi news outlets.

"Today or this week seems to be the most convenient time to do this", it said.

In a statement, he said execution would be recommended for five of them who "are charged with ordering and committing the crime".

The CIA believes the Saudi prince ordered the killing of Khashoggi, sources familiar with the matter said on Friday, complicating U.S. President Donald Trump's efforts to preserve ties with a key ally.

Jubeir also distanced Saudi Arabia from Central Intelligence Agency reports that it blamed the Saudi crown prince for Khashoggi's murder.

"We are ready to freeze and stop military operations on all fronts in order to achieve peace", Mohammed Ali al-Houthi, a senior leader of the Shiite group, declared, blaming the United States for being the main culprit behind what he called "the aggression" against Yemen, the Associated Press (AP) reports.

Amid growing global calls for sanctions on the Saudi regime over the murder, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian told Europe 1 radio on Monday that Paris would decide very soon to impose sanctions on individuals linked to the case.

Le Drian further stressed that Paris wanted to have all the facts in place before making a decision.

Trump said he "was fully briefed on it, there's no reason for me to hear it".
