World leaders welcome Saudi prince at G20, avoiding isolation

Macron was heard in a video from the summit telling the crown prince "I told you. We might, but we had none", Trump told reporters following the exchange.

Even U.S. President Donald Trump didn't acknowledge the pair.

Meanwhile, bin Salman talked with world leaders as accusations swirled about the gruesome killing of Khashoggi, who was tortured before he died.

"We suggest renaming the street address of the Saudi Embassy into Jamal Khashoggi Way to be a daily reminder to Saudi officials" that such killings are "totally unacceptable and as an expression of Washington's unstinting support for freedom of the press", the petition states.

What is the G20 summit and why does it matter?
About 22,000 police officers and other security forces were guarding the leaders during the two-day summit that began on Friday. Saudi officials have blamed the killing on rogue agents and denied the crown prince had knowledge of the operation.

Macron's tense interaction with Salman was in stark contrast to his warm embrace of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who high-fived and shared a laugh with each other at the summit's start.

While some world leaders distanced themselves from the Saudi crown prince accused of ordering the assassination of a journalist, and from Russian President Vladimir Putin.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has also promised to push the Crown Prince on both the journalist's murder and the war in Yemen. The White House was said to prevent CIA Director Gina Haspel from attending a closed-door briefing on the killing this week with senators, prompting more criticism.

In the audio of the conversation, it's possible to make out the prince saying "Don't worry", to which Macron responds: "I am worried".
