  • Saudi Arabia government pledges ‘greater action’ if US retaliates for Khashoggi disappearance

One CNN source cautioned that the report was still being prepared and could change, while another said it will likely conclude the operation took place without clearance, and that those involved will be held responsible.

On Saturday, Mr Trump threatened Saudi Arabia with "severe punishment" if it emerged that Mr Khashoggi had been killed inside the consulate but ruled out halting big military contracts with Riyadh. Saudi Arabia has denied any involvement in Mr. Khashoggi's disappearance, saying he left the building alive shortly after collecting papers.

Turkish crime scene investigators had searched the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul over the disappearance and alleged slaying of Saudi writer Jamal Khashoggi.

October 9: Cengiz writes an op-ed in Washington Post, saying her husband-to-be had applied for USA citizenship and that his reason for visiting Turkey was to take care of all necessary paperwork for them to marry before he returned to Washington.

The recordings purportedly indicated that the prominent Saudi journalist was tortured and killed at the kingdom's consulate in Istanbul, according to the Turkish Sabah daily.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt and his counterparts from France and Germany, Jean-Yves Le Drian and Heiko Maas, said they have "grave concerns" about the situation.

Trump tweeted early Monday that Salman denied any knowledge of "whatever may have happened 'to our Saudi Arabian citizen'".

The search came almost two weeks after Khashoggi, a Saudi critic, vanished after entering the building.

"I heard that report, but nobody knows if it's an official report", Trump told reporters, without elaborating.

Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said she told her Saudi counterpart Monday that she wants to see a "thorough and transparent" investigation into Khashoggi's fate.

President Donald Trump says he has spoken to the king of Saudi Arabia, who denies any knowledge of what happened to a Saudi journalist who visited the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul and then disappeared and is feared dead. I am immediately sending our Secretary of State to meet with King!'

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

"If they don't buy it from us, they're going to buy it from Russian Federation or they're going to buy it from China or they're going to buy it from other countries", Trump said at a news conference on Saturday.

"The king has ordered the public prosecutor to open an internal investigation into the Khashoggi matter based on the information from the joint team in Istanbul", an official quoted Reuters.

Pompeo will go to Turkey from Saudi Arabia, the White House National Security Council said.

In a sign of new cooperation between Turkey and Saudi Arabia that could shed light on the disappearance, Turkish investigators wearing coveralls and gloves entered the consulate Monday.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin is still scheduled to attend the October 23 Future Investment Initiative in Saudi Arabia, White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told Fox News.

Riyadh will next week host a three-day summit called the Future Investment Initiative - dubbed "Davos in the Desert" in a reference to the annual gathering of leaders from politics and business at the World Economic Forum in Switzerland.

    And to that, Trump replied, "You'd have to show me the scientists because they have a very big political agenda". I think there is probably a difference. "Man-made or not, I mean there's something there".
