US President Donald Trump told reporters Monday that he was aware of the report but did not know if it was correct. "Who knows?" the president said, describing the situation as "terrible".

Speaking on Monday about the potential cost for Saudi Arabia, Trump only told the media that "the world is watching".

The South African Department of International Relations and Cooperation's Facebook statement about the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

The kingdom has so far publicly denied involvement in his disappearance.

But a Turkish diplomatic source said it was expected that the search, a joint operation with Saudi authorities, would "take place towards the evening" Monday.

Turkish sources allege he was killed by a 15-strong team of Saudi agents but Riyadh insists that he left the consulate unharmed.

Prince Mohammed, 33, a son of King Salman, consolidated his control in June 2017 when he was named Crown Prince to replace his cousin, Mohammed Nayef, who was sacked. Saudi Arabia is the world's top oil exporter, spends lavishly on Western arms and is a major Sunni Muslim ally.

Trump appears to threaten USMCA deal when lashing out at migrant caravan
One participant, Dilmer Vigil, said earlier this week that he joined the caravan because he had been unemployed for six months. "Can you believe this and what Democrats are allowing to be done to our country?" the president said on Twitter .

Turkish and Saudi investigators began Monday what Turkish officials call a joint "inspection" of the consulate - but not before a cleaning crew walked in armed with mops, trash bags and cartons of milk, said to be good for removing bloodstains.

Khashoggi, a Washington Post contributor who became critical of the Saudi leadership as Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman rose to power, was last seen entering the consulate on October 2.

It's unclear what Trump hopes to accomplish by sending Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to meet with Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al-Saud. American lawmakers have threatened tough punitive action against the Saudis, and Germany, France and Britain have jointly called for a "credible investigation" into Khashoggi's disappearance.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia considered delaying the Saudi investment conference until after the investigation, according to a source with direct knowledge of the situation. Despite being anxious for his safety, he had gone into the consulate in Istanbul to get a document necessary to marry his Turkish fiancee, the partner and friends have said. He pointed out that King Salman is too old to have enough political power or even mental ability to work effectively. Turkish officials believe one of those men was a post-mortem expert. Some police were in uniform while other officials were in suits carrying printers and files, an AFP correspondent said. A bone saw was used to dismember Khashoggi's body and it was placed in handheld cases and transported back to Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia has pledged to retaliate economically for any USA punitive action.

Just last week, Trump vowed to uncover the truth about what happened to Khashoggi and promised "severe punishment" for those responsible.

Business barons including British billionaire Richard Branson and Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi, as well as media powerhouses Bloomberg and CNN, have pulled out of the Future Investment Initiative (FII).
