island which is part of the united kingdom is leaving the e.u. leaders in brussels and london both want to avoid the so-called hard border with customs checks on exports the big question though is how to do that it's become a major crunch point to the extent that the go see asians are now revolving around the plan for a so-called backstop it's essentially a fallback plan for the border if it breaks that deal can't be reached a backstop would allow businesses to continue across the border without customs checks among the arguments is how any backstop should be applied and for how long britain's prime minister wants a time limit and any deal with the e.u. to apply to the whole of the u.k. the e.u. however once the backstop to remain in place for as long as it takes to reach a wider briggs's deal and for it to apply only to northern islands in the meantime to reason may is facing criticism from all sides within the conservative government to accept or to scrap each proposal jonah hill reports now from london. well the

situation has shifted dramatically in twenty four hours just on sunday afternoon it looked as if a technical deal had been struck with a relatively clear path towards it being signed off politically on wednesday night by all the leaders in brussels now the talks of a week before the. the question what next well can't a reason may cobble together enough support here in the u.k. for the deal that she decided yesterday she couldn't sign off before wednesday night so that she can stand behind britain's side of that bargain at that summit well the answer to that must at this point seem unlikely why because this country appears politically paralyzed over bragg's it the lack of consensus is profound parliament cabinet rather is divided the ruling party is divided the opposition party is divided parliament is divided everyone on different dividing lines will compete in dividing lines rather there are factions on the right and the left
8:03 pm
progresses factions who reject the deal being discussed that would see the u.k. remain in the customs union at least until a trade arrangement is struck they say that is just a back door to permanent customs union membership it deprives britain of the right to strike its own trade deals outside the u.k. that's a sort of holy grail of branches and then the other key to all of this the d u b the unionist party propping up to resume a very good majority in parliament there in northern ireland of course they have said all along they will never support a deal that in visit is possible different treatment for northern ireland the rest of the united kingdom that is implicit in the sort of deal that is being negotiated so on all sides there is opposition very hard for two reason may to square the circle very hard to see how there can be any resolution to this this week if at all . we're going to weather update next here on al-jazeera then we'll tell you why pulses are racing in papua new guinea after the government's splurge on super cars

union that suffered a drubbing was also the social democrats who sold their vote share all the point to make is that those two parties are two or three parties governing this country federally how likely is it that they will look at these results and say we can carry on in government and put target by these results we expect to hear from some of the senior elements of the conservative party but i'm going to the c.d.u. later that sit certainly the focus now is on how confident the federal coalition members are that they can continue in office for the long term riot police in nicaragua have made arrests and broken up the latest anti-government protests the protest as a part of an alliance of forty opposition groups demanding the resignation of president that he will take three hundred fifty nicaraguans have been killed and thousands injured in six months of anger against manuel rapala reports from the capital. dozens of anti-government demonstrators were met with heavy force by

police in managua after six months of unrest and more nicaraguan citizens are calling on the government of president then you know they got to end the violent repression of political opponents and i mean i don't know if we are being repressed they wouldn't let us march them violating our constitutional right to protest. almost as soon as the demonstration began police vehicles full of riot officers confronted the crowd. among. some protesters clashed with officers and were beaten with clubs many of the demonstrators were women who were dragged away school. when the seat of my now were up the nicaraguan police had announced yesterday that any playtest against the government today would be considered illegal and would not be allowed despite this we've seen several people come out on the streets and protest the government. that the police have started arresting them by one each one of these peaceful protesters as well as as as attacking members of the present was recently by my producer and i were recently

hit with the tear gas canister. members of the press were forced to huddle together for safety as the arrests unfolded. the nicaraguan police have used physical violence against journalists during demonstrations. this latest protest in managua was meant to represent the first demonstration by an organized political coalition of activists calling themselves the alliance for national unity. and i want you. really think the whole thing is just terrible the prosecution against the people is too much it's too much there has to be an end to this all of us have had enough of. a heavy militarized police presence across much of downtown managua prevented any more anti-government protesters from gathering on the streets of the city the police of criminalize dissent in the country meaning supporters of the government are the only nicaraguan citizens allowed to
8:12 pm
demonstrate on the streets of madrid up below. christine wade is a professor at washington college and co-author of the book nicaragua living in the shadow of the eagle she says the police have become more empowered by the government's crackdown on dissent. i think that what we've seen in the last couple of weeks really belie what we were hearing from ortega in late july who went on this international media tour saying that normalcy had returned that he conquered the kumar hers and what we've seen over the past couple of weeks is the increasing criminalization of peaceful protest and. a couple of weeks ago the new guy win national police issued a statement saying that any an authorized protester demonstrations were illegal and the national police don't have the constitutional authority to issue a statement like this and yet this is the new reality and not what i think that as long as the or david ministration enjoys the support of the armed forces that he

8:25 pm
viewer what the saudi crash means what what how did this happen. it's mean there's the there is a doubt and there is. there is a feeling it and exile and fear in the market were associated with the elevated and certain it associated with the case of. the possible involvement of these already government in this case and then the possible repercussion of this on the weather on negative impact on the atmosphere of the investment or economic impact of economic penalties by the west are though i doubt it or even possible change in power structures or they're out of the this is something really major and there are doubters already existed in the can i in the in the saudi policy we have seen erratic and reckless policy over the recent period from the ritz carlton case to a war in yemen to qatar sank it took a sanction to go. to her recent cancellation over
8:26 pm
a major project major energy a project. solar system solar energy projects all over the in my opinion the case is just a major trigger of all of this and can show the war and how the mentality of the a leadership in power right now in saudi arabia and how far they can go with their reckless policy crossing or that. barrier of red lines and this is really we put the political part of an economic partner and political allies in very difficult situation we see many of them running away we already have seen it and trying to distance themselves from the two of the the saudi government is in really not in the chamber i mean it's in the difficult situation this is very serious and way either they would have to come up with a way to come up out clean out of this or to you or we might see a change in power structure or a change in in political and economic policy and do what more reform more
8:27 pm
opening up. with a gun we have a new model i haven't seen this so far let me just bring in a slum here looking at this sort of global perspective the markets are clearly jittery but not because of jamal khashoggi death is it more because of the fact that all of these high profile c.e.o.'s have pulled out of what was dubbed in the desert that that's the economic impact or do you think it is because of g.'s death . ledged i must say thanks. thanks i think when it comes to f.b.i. foreign direct investment what you wanted to have is you want to have a certainty what you cannot tolerate is a stubbornness in any single meant because when the business leaders and everyone else sensed that ok we do not have an assurity we do not have a political stability in the country that is the least thing that any investor or
8:28 pm
any phone wants to see and hence if these news which are becoming a headline of power indeed as you've correctly pointed out on bloomberg and c n b c but there. are calls for posted so this will become a major concern because the founder of origin money hour or a virgin brand is not something something small if they don't open as at these levels decide to ok that we're going to cut ties are we going to scale back from all of other investments that we were pretty planning or intending to do inside eurabia of justice are the stock market is going to have a huge reaction of course it is very normal for a stock market to have a reaction where nearly eighty two stocks are out of eighty six stocks are in a deep negative territory thirty three billion dollar is the literally vite of the the stock market today but we have seen this movie over a nover in different parts of the world because panic when the traders are similar
8:29 pm
in if they're on the back of these such headlines these kind of reactions are very normal what we wanted to see is is the sergeant arabia coming up and then saying ok look we are going to resolve this matter with other political mints but i wanted to point out one important element overhead because just the us or the president trump administration is coming up and saying that we going to have a very strong reaction about this they are not talking to a country which does. hold a major commodity we i mean i am what i would say i hate to bring this up one thousand nine hundred seventy three oil embargo is an im very important example here where saudi arabia retaliated against the us yes the situation isn't the same because us is producing more than ten million barrel
8:30 pm
a day but to answer your question very precise the uncertainty for f.d.r. is the worst thing that can happen to any country that's a really important point the seventy three oil embargo is a very important point let me bring in. it was used as a political tool to put pressure on the u.s. now u.s. president donald trump is very clearly said there will be repercussions but what can the u.s. president really do in saudi arabia seems to be holding a lot of the business cards is surely. yes ordinary beer is holding a lot of the business cards the problem is that. i i'm sorry but i don't tribute they would much credence with the president or president don't trump says you're we are what we're talking about a person who is who prefers you know anybody coming and investing in the united states buying weapons buying whatever it is. over repercussions over things of that nature i have
8:31 pm
a feeling that the man is just simply sewing for some time he wants to buy some time to see how things may change i i on the other hand don't see anything really changing this event is a major political event not only an economic event and the problem is that you know what saudi arabia is able to do whether it is able to do the one nine hundred seventy three thing to redo nine hundred seventy three is a to me is doubtful saudi arabia has not had the economic transformation that. you know a vision twenty thirty or any other plans have indicated so it's still dependent on selling oil if it doesn't sell the oil it's not going to have revenue let's talk about. anybody right now let me bring in call it a hotline what impact will this have on his grand plan to stop saudi arabia relying
8:32 pm
on oil i think they with regard to the vision this is a sign of the failure of the vision the vision already has suffered from many of critiques and it has been it's reinforced the dollars about the vision about the sustainability and about the credibility and the sustainability of the solid economic policy. to me my my my many economists not just by me to me i am already pessimistic about this because it does not address the real issue that he issue in saudi arabia what the then the need that the citizen needs a home health. education employment you're talking about the highest inflation is there is a twenty percent in the with so the people of the saudi arabia these days they don't need a city they don't project they don't need to dig a canal and qatar which we with a lot of money it's infeasible anyway economically or politically. the many add
8:33 pm
that observe asian on the vision with regard to the negative impact on the labor market in the private sector and the method in which the tax was implemented if i tell you from my own sources what i hear that there are many businessmen and saudi arabia trying to get their money out these days due to fear of being confiscated thought if you are not creating the right atmosphere. and to attracts. investment this is very important and the hush of any event is a major trigger as a measure to get it's something is there an end in the in the mentality of the leadership the young leadership are there that we will see a change in order to find a way to get the government hands clean out of this order twill be a serious disaster a serious is also let me bring in a muslim here when you're on your trading floor when you're looking at all your
8:34 pm
screens the bloomberg screen the terminal and you're doing all of your financial analysis when you're looking at the numbers when it relates to the grand vision for twenty thirty do those numbers add up to you can saudi arabia. loosen its reliance on oil and develop this vision all is it like a solid the heart of saying it's a bit of a dream because actually they're not addressing the real issues in saudi arabia which are unemployment amongst the youth which are you know much more structural problems back at home. lake once we are discussing the structural problems they do not go overnight it takes a long period of time for these structure and cyclical changes to happen and one of the national tests that m.b.a.'s taken was bringing diverse in science as you pointed out but rather that concept can stay there whether they can sustain that credibility this is the huge question because we are talking about middle east or
8:35 pm
here we are talking about you either like dubai on one hand qatar on the other side saudi arabia on the other side they all know one thing very clearly or iran. leave the iran out for the time being because it doesn't have the same position but we they all know one thing very clearly that we cannot rely on oil hands m.p.s. said ok we want to change our economic dependence by going into foreign direct by investing into bigger funds and then perhaps do some sort of a format was scandinavian countries have done and then drive the revenue through that way that wouldn't happen overnight that will take enormous amount of a time but a clear geo political instability like this is absolutely critical for the country and like you would not see any investors feeling comfortable when they do not feel that ok i can redraw my funds i can pull out of a country i have my freedom of speech or any of these elements you do not want to
8:36 pm
do that because if n.b.s. is a really serious in changing the view about us argued arabia how the outside world see he got to show some sustainable results he got to show some important and solid results of that by having a stubborn behavior is not the way that this side eurabia can do we know that recent spat between saudi arabia and canada and i was just over some few tile point whatever that is a really important point for him let me just let me. stalky that's a very important point i want to bring in emma at her bit. name just said the saudis have a stubborn attitude which is stopping them from developing a political response to all of this is that fair. you know it's stubborn at it you it is you can describe it as a stubborn attitude but then again you know all governments act in that sense were
8:37 pm
they feel that they are sovereign and they do not want to be interfered with which is which is you know a very very fair point the problem is you know why are we here i mean the that same government that is rejecting any interference in its affairs is really making really major mistakes i mean since. the beginning of twenty fifteen when kings oman . rose to the throne and brought along his son with him you know sort out a bit has made really some serious better various leaders mistakes and no reckoning so far you know for how long will saudi arabia keep going with with this considering that none of it worked and all of it costs a lot of money i mean it's not every bit as in yemen alone it pays probably like you know i think that figure is like five to seven billion a month on on it war that that is not going anywhere you know they're out of certain other things that the saudi government politically speaking needs to do to
8:38 pm
make a serious effort to try to change the atmosphere surrounding everything that its delivery bring khalid answer ahead that's one side and to the political reckoning a political reckoning our guest says combine together the cost of the war in yemen . around i.p.o. being put on hold. all of the problems that the crown prince has had with trying to get everybody to get everybody to go along side with him and then the siege of qatar all of this in combination is saudi arabia now a bad investment. yes i think it's i think we might see a. pressure by drawing attention to saudi arabia and to that it might have some positive result that you cannot get away with all of this on the west cannot keep a close an eye on it as it's grown because of political and economic interest we
8:39 pm
might see drawing attention to the record in here to sell your record and you modify it and. quelling the political dissident an opinion of his speech and press we might see less of that hopefully in the future or that could be some positive side into this a story let me bring in a muslim here we have the situation where investors are clearly jittery about saudi arabia as a country to put money into. a lot of things seem to be happening very quickly a lot of investors are making one snap decision i guess or has this been a long time coming is saudi arabia seen as being always being a risky investment but the risk is always worth it. i don't know if the risk is always worth it i think it depends on the administration to your answer that and to provide that. platform because if you want to attract investment you need to have a quality labor and talent how do you attract talent because you provide them stay
8:40 pm
belletti you provide them a different opportunity if it out that you cannot do it and that m.b.a.'s did recently go into silicon valley by far i applaud that because i thing none of the other saudi officials that i know of have done anything like that where they've met the c.e.o. of deformities of big big corporations and then trying to convince them to bring those investments or their research hubs back in saudi arabia and then this is what i was saying earlier there is a huge sort of a competition going on between the countries and qatar by far has a very very lenient rules because it's providing residency is providing a lot of government support for a new start ups which if we are talking about it is all about ai it is all about green energy it is all about fame tech who is going to do that the most efficient way who is going to bring the most amount of the research labs within these. among
8:41 pm
these countries would be the winner because we know the fossil fuel isn't the answer anymore the only answer is to divert the development in the fin tech space and over in the u.k. just comparing a similar situation if you look at the bracks it and everything else if the u.k. loses that talent because of the brags that everyone else is going i'm talking about the unstable ity element which is right there in saudi arabia now while saudi arabia didn't does doesn't have that talent but is trying to attract that talent so with the with the presence of that and stability it was suffer more let me bring in emma her head listen listening to all of our guest talk about the economic side of this there has to be a way out of the saudis politically what will politically calm the markets calm the international community what will what all the options for saudi arabia. listen there are there are many options i mean you know there are those who or i
8:42 pm
believe it's just too extreme to to try to ask for a complete change of leadership in saudi arabia this is a legitimate rule it's the king needs to be make some. you know some some really serious decisions including including his crown prince and including but visors around his crown prince i mean you know this is for the saudis to determine i mean there will nobody can really be that they'll saudi arabia hey this is the sovereign issue you know while we want to interfere and no i think saudi arabia should decide on this but then again saudi arabia should be there are very very smart think capable people in the royal family and in the saudi echelon of power so you know there are many many important things that can be done you know you could do you can lift up the ban on expression in saudi arabia you can open up to the world you can say hey listen but there are certain things that we need to do to god
8:43 pm
in yemen you know understandably yemen is a very very important strategic issue for saudi arabia but you know going to war in yemen against the very very poor country it's it's just. shouldn't happen it shouldn't be there are political ways of dealing with this issue. the fair is very very to me i'm sorry to say it but it's a very shameful affair shameful affair let me just something that because we are running out of time and i would like another also from from all three of you give me mr khalid al fatah in thirty seconds what you think is the way out for saudi arabia if there is indeed one that you think they can take if i tell you before serious political reform and economic reform to reinforce economic and social instability first and foremost and then this hopefully will lead to economic and
8:44 pm
political instability and sustainability of the regime otherwise there is no way out you know a muslim thirty seconds walk. the saudi government has advice. it's a stop provide more stability on its border by stopping all the wars with the neighboring countries that would promote the entire state political element in the middle east and side arabia would attract a lot of investment just because of that and him of her thirty seconds if you were advising the saudi government right now. liberalize a domestic front allow people to say what they want to say that will that will tell the world that you are ready for a good investment you're ready for you know we're coming forward for review serious reform because you know no country can really develop if this these things keep happening in saudi arabia so there we have it we seem to be developing a narrative of that this is a very serious perhaps the most serious situation saudi arabia face both
8:45 pm
politically and economically let me just ask one very quick question to you a little hut that has the idea of the economic locating in scott that all of this sort of stuff is clearly had an impact on you personally do you see a way of a climb down when it comes to the relations between saudi arabia and qatar within the region can never get back to normal what do you mean the relations between saudi arabia and qatar get back to normal yes of course everything is possible if there is a will and there is. good intention it is possible. good intensions well thank you to all our guests. thank you too for watching you can see the program again any time by visiting our website al-jazeera dot com and for further discussion go to our facebook page facebook dot com forward slash a.j. inside story you can also join the conversation on twitter handle is a.j.

almost two weeks ago more than child stratford in istanbul. the culture to self has been open for business over the last few days today is no exception it doesn't close until three o'clock local time which is in an allergist from now and it seems fairly conceivable that that team will be allowed in during business hours we are very unsure we don't have solid information as to exactly what this team or the amount of people that are going to be in this team and the level of forensic investigating for example that they have agreed upon and the saudis are going to allow them to do we spoke to a government source earlier who said that the reason why this is taking so long to get agreement for access into the consulate was precisely because of this because there was no agreement on the star witness of the investigation that it seemingly needs to be done we also don't know yet can't confirm whether this investigation is
8:50 pm
going to stretch to looking inside the medical school residence or indeed those vehicles that were registered to the consulate good caused so much interest that were pictures of them that were leaked by government sources to the pro-government press but certainly it seems that after almost two weeks since mr her show she disappeared inside the consulate that this this joint investigation is going to start and end it seems yes imminent we are expecting them in the next couple of hours. a couple of other notes the chief executive of the world's largest fund management company black rock is the latest business leader to pull out of a major conference in the saudi capital riyadh executives from j.p. morgan and ford as well as celebrity investors like richard branson have canceled their attendance as well also media partners that include c.n.n. bloomberg and the new york times are boycotting the conference over concerns that

8:53 pm
that's a look at your headlines lifelines the quest for global health starts right now. there are those who dream of possibilities of a world free of the ancient diseases that keep billions in poverty. and for those who strive to make that dream a reality their quest is on the brink of the. malaria
8:54 pm
is still one of the biggest kill us in the country and we've got to solve it. by joint malaria search around the year two thousand when i was you know nineteen year old and the evidence that has come out of that period suggests that it is possible to eventually eliminate the disease i am fortunate that i'm still young and god willing i will be there when it is a minute and i want to be part of. the kind of people to. see c.z. do. you. keep an. eye on.
8:55 pm
it's a little insect but it kills a lot more people than many wards. their biology. and they make it hard to get rid of. it like a fight between the participate in the human population we want to relay because my live it and the parasite wants to survive. malaria still kills millions of people around the world but the disease is closer than ever to being eliminated workers at the if a current health institute in tanzania are playing their part in the final push to
8:56 pm
end malaria my name is frederick. i'm mostly involved with new technologies for control and surveillance almost just about transmit malaria so there's little insects. very the mosquitoes transmit malaria but what we're seeing here is the aquatic stage about mosquito these are lousy afterwards the mosquitoes become when the mosquitoes are a day afterwards they might become models now the adults then fly into the village to seek blood. malaria is caused by a parasite that is spread by the female anough least mosquito that bites at night because the mosquitoes carry the parasite scientists call them direct as when an infected mosquito vector bites a human it injects the parasite into the body since. look
8:57 pm
at about. these. things. you know and all these mosquitoes need blood. if you look at the ground you see a lot of prints now this tends to be some of the most prolific pretty excites for malarial mosquitoes so you see the cars coming in now they're making lots of this prince on the side when the rain comes it feels up this with water and all of a sudden you end up with a thousand larvae breeding in that little of print. what's how very interesting here is that normally we would expect an awful is in pretty good size to be clear so we're actually quite surprised that in a dirty pool like this that you have malarial mosquitoes now clearly this simply say nothing is customs torn their colors you can change and so it's important that
8:58 pm
we keep monitoring this and updating the information that we have about disease and the bottom leiria as time goes by. and the if a kind of health institute is the leading scientific organization in east africa and its research has laid the foundation of the regions and the malaria campaigns. if the institute is important in this country at least we have evaluated most of the important interventions that are being deployed not only in tanzania but also in africa including the bed nets the work that we did to make a difference and we can do how to distribute the bed nets and now we're testing backfield. people have started waking for many many years against this malaria as a disease so we have different sections. which taco's different. area as a disease at different levels. but isn't the killer better valets interesting which
8:59 pm
is where if a car is located is that we were starting at a very very difficult point. most people in the one nine hundred ninety s. was carrying around malaria part of sides. everything it takes for malaria to flourish now it is also the players but we have achieved tremendous success this was one of the first places but bad next one triage that is the data that was generated from such trials that went in to create into the policy of everybody requires a bad q the most there's been a vigorous anti malaria campaign led by tendon in president jacques kayak equate here and there is still good bowlers from school workers from children from joining with leaders like president clinton and didier drogba libraries preventable and treatable sleep under an insecure treated must be doing it every night united we
9:00 pm
can beat malaria. in direst the national malaria control programme plans the country's n.t. malaria campaigns and initiatives. the met is now used to prevent people from getting bitten by malaria but in the end because the net is twisted it doesn't say we believe it has. the net it is taken it is those things we need to go for it won't come back again. in the spring we sprayed inside the house to ensure that when it was. it was the best there was. then with. the indoor spraying of houses the role of rapid diagnostic tests and bed net campaigns coordinated here so there's multiple channels to get nets to people and there will
9:01 pm
be another campaign because nets only last about three years another campaign for every single person in tanzania assuming that there's two people per net and then we've got twenty million nets and that's what we're preparing at the moment this is the malaria prevalence in the country this is a survey that was done in two thousand and seven two thousand and eight and this is the most recent one eleven in two thousand and twelve the dark colors shows higher prevalence the lower shows lower prevalent so you can see the map is getting lighter which is good if you can image the most brutal. is. the tricky. environment. the environment is conducive for. sham of a bit softer that is. so. so this is. and what we try and do
9:02 pm
is figure out how many mosquitoes and houses to buy it people in the us and if we can do this on a daily basis consistently we would be able to know the number of just for example is going down. figuring to looking at whether this was good as a cutting. so we can know the density of transmission in this fight over town. now the bed nets have done a tremendous job later prevalence is gone down almost fifty sixty percent snow this is a massive success we very effectively way able to control these mosquitoes that go into the house uninvited people what we haven't been able to do very well or equally well is to control those prosecutors that don't necessarily have to come into the house those well skeeters that would still they believe by if you were here outside what this picture tells us is that little transmission it appears immunology is slightly changed with the coming of beds so this is the challenge
9:03 pm
that we have now on one hand it's a success story you've dealt with the notorious malaysia vet as quite effectively on the other hand it's a challenge in the sense that the victim behavior profile that we have now requires us to introduce new technologies in addition to the bed nets. well fredricka says research looks for new technologies to combat mosquitoes that bite outdoors an important part of malaria prevention is focused on the most vulnerable group pregnant mothers and babies where when one is in a clinic. that's not there now is the drop about night when you know wolf one hour . after that i hit them. who am i live. ms eleven. how many one by one by lydia in a minute i mean look then you go. to learn about vietnam twice and i know one
9:04 pm
child i look at you know. what that what was are. you know ma'am i know how to. land a plane just when you look at them and now an admission to me it's now but the. man i am out. of was i was a clean if you paid me i feel. you can get on my lady come out i mean. you know when they're. p.z. about. a bubble what all of the missing but. again we want to go get my new book i want i know one of the two pantheon ms fulton allows me. to keep it i need ms and. not talking.
9:05 pm
about the top. one and under. the. bed nets were initially distributed for free in tanzania and the government still subsidizes bed nets through a voucher system but research has shown that if people have to pay even if it is as little as five hundred chilling as they have lent of thirty american cents the nets are put to better use. you don't see. no nobody great do not murder good check your hands are going to do them again i really. do not want to. do the a number of the good in the good. but. there was entirely. that is are not. to be quite.
9:06 pm
there with me but i tend to. use that magic i've seen. and if a car they have built a massive mosquito colony turlough for testing of control interventions scientists call this a semi field system locals call it musky to city so what's interesting is that for a long time a later control specialist thought that with the coming of beds they had everything that they needed the wall before god was that the ecology of mosquitoes was so you know minimally started without understanding this ecology in detail we will take with a interventions that we currently have we want to be able to develop any new tools so this is stems are developed are constructed to mimic a natural free living environment for mosquitoes so we have these houses that mimic houses where people would live. you have these ones we have this many makeshift
9:07 pm
houses that actually have beds in their. human volunteers are duty one volunteers can sleep in there so that mosquitoes kind of ten a blood meal but of course the musky all the mosquitoes that we have here. free of part of their not carrying any disease now the mosquitoes we're dealing with their play of animals and they are competing for resources as well. if you put pressure on them by trying to kill as many of them as possible they start to become assyrians at a sudden stage and that means if you spring back if you if you recall ok if you stop doing what you're doing they're going to bounce back and if they bounce spock they're probably going to be your assistance to whatever interventions you have and so controlling them is going to be a lot more difficult and this is one reason that at this stage we have reached now we now almost at the you know we are now almost at the college bound to attempt to eliminate the disease so that it doesn't come out.
9:08 pm
from. a missing donator can forget. he can. come up with the right. but the home and then you can visit peter and what if then how do. you know who i want and. oh. you know and. he never knew of him that he really needed and. we had to cool them for us he took. to me i'm wrong what a four to two a chunk. i mean yeah we have to cynical
9:09 pm
human born leader killed we'll call maria here when you come out why. do you believe that when we. decide in america what to do for my lady i'm going to show you all idea. i'm a freak so i'm not a musical genius or. i but we will implement more money cruises peterson when there's a whole new millennium the matafeo we're going to call. police. i don't know how and when if you plug in evil vocally by now ban want to man up with an army you. ought to have already run out of what. we did to him do wrong point to fake you wagner married. freddy. you're married you're leading an unethical.
9:10 pm
just. and i have a look at this event evenings most days we come here and collect p.o.p. these are the most gators that we don't use for more so why experiments they were born here they grow up here and they die here it's just i'm just going to show you this is interesting. so when they when the pew peer collected. you end up with is beautiful. just take mobs of people this is what then becomes adult mosquitoes after one day. i first got interested in my little research because it was fun you know it's only later that i realized that i could convert this fun pair into a saving lives of which if you. want the malaria rates in places like the kid on
9:11 pm

9:16 pm
he is on his first dose of queen administered via drip this will be followed up with a lou and artemis and based combination therapy that is a first line treatment for malaria. with the. same many's father has arrived at the wart like eddie said many is also still critical at the end of her first day at the clinic. as we speak now if you go out of the community in the korean ities and screen people across. about nine to ten percent of turns on me and children carry part of sides this is according to the latest survey that we're so used to. see that malaria is still a measure of measure problem in the country.

9:22 pm
do is the. one day when it is going to open a funny and i nailed. it on budget of one item or yoni. to get it very easy for my eyes that's. what i wanted it. so many is that it. was they did it. or not i don't wonder does it occur to you amanda love them i think that so many are down for a cover and exited through that so many critics who knew what a film wanted to but still have that. faded as it was that. it was writing it and no words. nobody to do.
9:23 pm
anything on there and then make it really. and then did it refer to them. this is the second day that a.t.m. so many are in the pediatric ward their families have spent the night at their bedsides just as the trap put out by the sea death in fact the kind you pay money. in on a first. a. facility is a basic in spite of this the hospital effectively holds the line against malaria for one hundred twenty four villages in the district. and they did it in radio. says a new one. will know how.
9:24 pm
and. when given up. i have lived in malaria while all of my life so i know the problem of malaria as a disease it's affected me my friends and family i have friends who have lost kids my sister passed away and we have the disease long time ago. so it's not it's not something new for us but that alone is not the only reason that i walk on malaria malaria because it's a problem that affects a lot of people in my community.
9:25 pm
well maybe this is done with a different gun well money for good health the numbers. as undoing the money into the budget one of the still to come i know one of them did too much of a good many many older looking. mean there was no harm done i'm possibly it is not me no more idea how close she was a minute to go to my local club and i the new flood to be opened and i think you know one of them and implicitly tell you so if they. tell you. what you did to.
9:26 pm
the lives of the children in the hospital ward i mean the balance for drugs and his fellow scientists are exploring unusual methods to beat the disease and it all starts with a game or football. so one of the presents we walking on might know is development of new devices that can be used on those to kill mosquitoes that would otherwise be seeking and biting people sitting outside their homes that. this is an out and almost get on trial experiment was on the walk to express outside the house another was a time to find a tourist we do wish we could compliment the benefits that we have already accrued we are long lasting so essentially then that's it. the way it works is that
9:27 pm
it's kept outside the house. so that when was creatures. mosquitoes that would normally bite you when you're outside would think that it's also one of the human beings because inside it you have human food order that is trapped in the dark to solve the mosquitoes think that's actually the smell of a possum and that's where you can attract loads of mosquitoes onto this device and there's no better way to harvest this than this so you wear these your food you play soccer with it or you walk with it for a few hours and it's really it's got a solar panel on top of it and this up on it doesn't have to be. we keep it be because our intention is that eventually we will wired into people's houses so it also provides lighting so i've been mormon was a train to avoid the use of chemicals because the doing to vision have used a lot of chemicals like the bed made and the indoor is just brain so we are trained
9:28 pm
not to take them with ketones using the electric rates so you put this thing over. the following morning you have killed two hundred mosquitoes we should be flying around biting people. to. task. the. stock and. we want to keep testing multiple options with the hope that eventually we end up with one tool that is going to be effective in our. proc to call them out affordable enough i'm to use a friendly enough but we can put this together with the best available technologies and sectors of the long lasting insecticide treated mats and hopefully a breath of malaria beyond a threshold that elimination becomes possible. the flow of patients has not let up on us tendons it's another day of challenges. your
9:29 pm
doctor she learns with the guns of doubt. i'm going to quit it to give it to the top and done. with it and it was the women learn the only difference is that who are we really. so it's no good to sit there and say to. them or do something good. she complained. but the i didn't watch again or go to an engineer when you know it was in the bushes as well mentions open question as one who lives with whom i'm a woman. says that we don't go mad to me to see you doing imo no night is o.c.d. . not missing a. sex scene and if you notice it and then beat it if we try to put this in then i
9:30 pm
can go to. my. room got to. the movies. to. it wolf. did you ever hear of. peaceful for us up when i took one bite of bob do you know that a she died. and it's. going to community. when
9:31 pm
he got on the boiler qin how a bit more within four hours and sadia my session and where he. was when i did buy a stop. at a sheet and i want to be for the president ok i'll be delayed. but. to be. that stupid to talk to you dumbass when you make it up but i am going to be. suspicious and move the good book that will do it if you will meet with dignity i'll go drop by here repeat it in detail for me jealous as to she already knew he didn't have anything to cover it up but that.
9:32 pm
one's going to do what many in you will county and there'll come america. if your. sim is it the comet is a video peter. vegas san. there are many more idea. than what the thought that when the photo was. although up to one patient a day dies of malaria at. the hospital saves countless lives. is now receiving a blood transfusion to aid his recuperation. this
9:33 pm
is this is three times a week to help do this to get the mosquitoes to lay eggs so i'm intending all of this it's. feeding. if a week this case get screened for what it is and if they fall ill but could you just destroyed on this doc feed for a while until they get well. ok just got three thousand mosquitoes in the us. all of which hungry. the moment in such a. it's a voluntary assignment as you can see it's very difficult very painful. in the name
9:34 pm
of the later decisions in the name of trying to save a life in future it's good to do this we wouldn't want to invest so much resources people's blood energy if you were optimistic. face a future in this battle against the disease there wouldn't be a better reason to smile that this is under control at some point in the multiple tools developed to control malaria have been successful in their own ways but scientists have always been off to a game changer. just outside. the health institute is putting serious resources into vaccine ricin which we believe if we do find a vaccine will be a boost to the effort to control the disease all over africa we have done a series of work first on the vaccines that are a component of the side and. proteins that are composed in the
9:35 pm
past and we try to use those fortunes to inject into your own ones to see if the humans can develop a resistance to this parasite and we have tested two different types of vaccines or from the first one is our a g s s which is the most advanced in research terms the most advanced vaccine to date. to him they have. a. similar one on the chin down here and if you know libya. this is the child who is among the infants who have been enrolled in the malaria vaccine trial and we did something we call and libertarian based edition we are very unlikely that most of the coalition know any discomfort monkeyed with triggers fever so any fever could mean malaria in this world african

war plan. and their album the idea will be the malaria vaccine is the ara this is a s. or one this vaccine is given in three doses and we also incorporated a booster dose and we are now doing the follow up of these children in this is important to document the safety of their vaccine. what told me to be there has been more efforts to establish a vaccine these two words under five children because this is the more still vulnerable group which have been affected for many many years while fighting with malaria. instead. of make on tottenham let's not. just let them. in the courtroom let's lay it on. a quest that
9:37 pm
city. and. in terms of the if you can see off the air it is this malaria vaccine trial it has been showing a good if you see among the older children more than forty percent then among the in finds it's as if it has has been low less than thirty percent and we really don't know what is happening among the infants a lot of fact as we have been explaining this results but as i have mentioned there is a booster do is after one year or two is in this result. and their life so we hope that the booster those will do something to the immunity of these infants and we hope they think us it will be better. than being challenge with malaria vaccine. trials is a changing. of this parasite because as you find some other
9:38 pm
ways of tackling the disease then the balance that keeps on changing and you find yourself like ok now we have to go on the other say though this technique to have more sophisticated ways of prevention of these particular disease. the vaccine about to launch is using a slightly different approach that if you expose more skittles that have the power size in the process have been evacuated by using x. rays and you expose is mostly just to people the people that receive the parasite inactivated pass eyes develop better protection now the new approach with a vaccine was to take out dissect out the parasites from the mosquitoes and use this. field using feelings and needles. this is still an experimental
9:39 pm
phase of evaluating the vaccine so we would first identify healthy individuals from doris around to check that they don't have any other condition and then ask them to be vaccinated with. spores or it's the parasite in the form that moves from all skittles to humans if it tries to access or it will be for the first time that we show we can give. series something that will provide full protection from a challenge of malarkey. anything to vaccine would be the final step towards the elimination of the disease. e.d.n. so many families are beginning this day at the pediatric heart. didn't ascension on the ground in the world i'm going on here and am into this film is that it.

i know there are some of us in argentina it's going to be pretty warm over the next few days the satellite picture is picking up the cloud that's in the extreme northern parts of argentina through paraguay and into the southern parts of brazil but to the south of that it's largely fine and dry plenty of sunshine and woman for a same when as a result temperatures up at around twenty five or twenty six over the next few days meanwhile towards the west for santiago the temperatures are really dropping off as we head into tuesday maximum gist of sixteen and do expect a good deal of cloud around and a few outbreaks of rain to a bit further towards the north as plenty of cloud here and that cloud to the southwest in parts of mexico has now developed into a storm it's working its way away from us but still in hansei all the wet weather here to do expected to be fairly wet for many of us and that area of rain also extends further towards the south as well over the caribbean islands expect quite a few showers during the day but in between there should be a good deal of sunshine as well so even though you see cuba under this whole lake of blue there will be some brightness to even further towards the north we've seen
9:47 pm
plenty of snow here it's even dipping its way across a parts of north america it really is feeling quite cool and quiet early in the year full that it will continue his journey south let's turn will to rain as it does does say denver will be brighter of a sixty degrees during the day today. the weather sponsored by cats are and always . has the designation of state sponsor of terror tell us what that designation means filed by it is that people stood on. the sudanese foreign minister derry mohammed ahmed talks to al-jazeera. to stand the differences. and the similarities of cultures across the. al-jazeera brother leader or brutal dictator. with discontent

spreading through north africa time was running out for libya's self-styled king of kings. in the first of a two part series the big picture charts the rise and fall of one of the few and the events that helped fuel the violence of his final hours. the lust for libya on a few. this is al-jazeera. hello everyone i'm come out santa maria and this is the news hour from al-jazeera coming up donald trump announces he is immediately dispatching his secretary of state to meet the saudi king over the disappearance of saudi journalist jamal
9:49 pm
khashoggi also a joint turkish saudi team is expected to search the saudi consulate in istanbul where he disappeared some two weeks ago in other news uncertainties around the deal that was supposed to see a group withdraw from syria's last rebel held province and rescues and reunions in france as heavy rain bring severe flooding to the southwest at least thirteen people are dead. non-porous with all your sports it's neck and neck in the race to reach baseball's world series as the boston red sox square things up against the houston astros. so the u.s. president donald trump has just announced he is sending secretary of state mike pompei out to meet the saudi king over the case of missing saudi journalist jamal khashoggi is also a joint turkish expected to enter the consulate in istanbul very soon to
9:50 pm
investigate his disappearance remember he has not been seen in nearly two weeks and turkish authorities believe he was killed inside the search has been delayed for several days has been a key turkish demand in the unfolding investigation into his disappearance saudi arabia's king solomon and the turkish president of egypt typer one spoke by phone on sunday evening al-jazeera has learned the head of saudi intelligence is also in turkey and will be meeting to. officials there will sort of tweet on sunday from the saudi embassy in washington which thanks the u.s. for quote not jumping to conclusions but also one of retaliation against any sanctions u.s. president donald trump had previously warned of severe punishment of the kingdom was found to be behind his disappearance and also we've got companies like ford j.p. morgan and the investment groups blackstone and black rock are just the latest to pull out of a major investor conference in the saudi kingdom so lots to discuss we have got
9:51 pm
kimberly halkett in washington d.c. and we'll be coming to her shortly but first jamal who is outside that saudi embassy and the clamor of photographers behind you jamal. indeed suddenly there has been a lot of press and journalists that have descended on to the consulates in the past couple of hours after that announcement was made. the turkish prosecutor general's office here in istanbul said that they would finally be sending in their investigators into the consulate some two weeks softer from out of her should she went missing that they would be entering together with the saudi officials there has been a bit of extra movement in the past half an hour or so vehicles leaving more than they have been answering to be honest come out there was a cleaning company that arrived earlier today as well which was a bit strange just from a from
9:52 pm
a from an objective perspective looking at the fact that these are investigators who are meant to be coming they're coming two weeks later obviously so much time has passed and now you also have a cleaning company and two are nonetheless this comes off the earth cycles president. spoke to the saudi king solomon. and after that we saw a flurry of statements either made directed by the foreign ministry or these states news agency in saudi arabia as well as they have these different social media accounts that they post in from graphics on and so forth talking about the great relationship between saudi arabia and turkey and how nobody will come between it's and that the saudi authorities are thankful to the charts for coordinates in which there is a very clear shift in the narrative that's been pushed at least publicly by saudi officials and maybe the media that's been close to the movie actually been very negative towards turkey over the past year because of its position viz a viz a blockade on puppet of us specifically over the past few days where they've been
9:53 pm
attacking that cyclists narrative that sees they believe she was murdered so there is a lot of shifting taking place the reason a lot of movements with regards to now what we're expecting the entry into the consulate behind me but still we are. not seen the conclusive evidence that's hard to say they have which proves she was assassinated by a saudi hit two weeks jamal it is taken for this investigation with these investigation teams to even get close to going to the consulate can you can we really say why it is taking quite low. well i mean on paper the reason is that the consulate is dictated by the vienna vienna border or agreements which stipulates that foreign diplomatic missions cannot be answered by the host nation's security services without the explicit agreement and approval of diplomatic missions governments or country in this case saudi authorities need
9:54 pm
to give the green light so the sharks now early on there was maybe four days off to jamal khashoggi went missing in an interview with one of the outlets crown prince mohammed bin said a man said that he was actually happy to an outside control source is when we spoke to talk to the parties they said that actually the only good approval that had come from the saudis initially was that turkish police could come in together with the reuters news agency as well as hand-picked journalists that they would not be allowed to search the place they would only be given a show and tell by the consul general who as we saw in those videos was opening up doors and bizarrely cabinets and that's a liar and for people to actually investigate this seven story building behind me and therefore that starts felt that they were not giving being given corporation or approval to enter it now it seems after the pressure that the turks managed to orchestrate through showing the evidence true we believe u.s. intelligence community as well as the germans and the british i mean statements
9:55 pm
that have come out of the international community the latest being from spain in the past couple of hours condemning saudi arabia for not disclosing the whereabouts of german officials seems that the riyadh really does feel under the cosh we've seen what that's translated into not only in the boycotting of this upcoming financial investment future investment conference but also the impact it's had on the saudi stock exchange and therefore the saudis would appear stuck between a rock and a hard place where they have to at least give the facade that they are cooperating but as you mentioned there two weeks after it come out how much is the tire on the technical pledges we're going to be able to get and the wrist something. buried in there and they know where it is it's very difficult to see what possible benefit could come out of them answering so rates on in the day. a thanks jim i'll actually just let's just hold with you just for a second because the car has just pulled up there we're watching the live shot at the moment and if you can see anyone who might be coming out from there i don't see soon there's been cars coming and going all day. yet just one soul gentleman
9:56 pm
coming out ahead of a concern that we'll keep an eye on that live shot and will be back with jamal i'll show as soon as anything does happen at the saudi consulate in istanbul meanwhile we're off to washington d.c. just after nine in the morning there and kimberly how good is live for us hi kimberly we had one of those oh he's tweeted moments about an hour ago what did president trump have to say. the president saying that he spoke to the king of saudi arabia that the king says he has no knowledge about what might have happened to the missing journalist and that they are working very closely with turkey to try and find the answers well the u.s. president also in that tweet said that he's sending his secretary of state might come peo to meet with the king to try and get to the bottom of exactly what happened to the missing journalist but what you know what all of this is that this is a situation that really has the trump white house in a bit of
9:57 pm
a buy because while the u.s. president has vowed severe consequences if the missing journalist is found to have disappeared or even been killed as a result of actions by saudi arabia this is a problem because we know and we've been discussing her knowledge is the saudi arabia is threatened to retaliate if there is any action any punitive action against it well it would retaliate likely with the rise in oil prices and that would certainly not be good for donald trump particularly as we head towards congressional elections in about three weeks time because essentially we could see the price of oil rising even into the triple digits and that is something that is a very big concern to this president given the fact that he is currently as part of his broader wrong strategy trying to push iranian oil out of the market so while the president is threatening to very stiff consequences at the same time his hands in some ways are tied not just politically but also economically yeah i guess we
9:58 pm
can't really on the play the importance of economic ties between the two countries can we and this is been something don't trump has reiterated as far as a minute tree deals and the like goes well but he doesn't want to put those at risk . absolutely i mean that the two economies are very interdependent and there's no question the global economy is pretty concerned right now about oil markets but the president also has an issue when it comes to jobs we've been talking a lot about those multibillion dollar hundreds of billion dollars arms deals that the united states has in place over the next ten years with saudi arabia as a top purchaser of u.s. weapons the president has already expressed concern about saudi arabia going and purchasing perhaps from china from russia that's of that they could do particularly quickly but it certainly is a threat and again this is a big generator of jobs in the united states this is a jobs president so this is a president with a couple of problems here and that's why there is some interest in this tweet that
9:59 pm
he sent out this morning here in washington about the fact that he's sending his secretary of state trying to work with saudi arabia because he doesn't want to see this sort of fragile balance in any way disrupted he wants to keep those jobs in place he also wants to keep prices at the pump the gas pumps low particularly before a pivotal election potentially in just three weeks time which could determine control of congress currently controlled by the republicans the president's party he wants to keep it that way and if any of that changes it would be a challenge for him to do so all right thanks to complete how could live in washington d.c. for us so as we keep an eye on this story of the south because he lives in istanbul the comings and goings they have been plenty today but we're waiting for any sign of this joint turkish saudi investigative team and the question being what might they find inside and we're going to discuss that now with our guest joining us on skype from boston it's going who is a former deputy national intelligence officer for transnational threats at the cia
10:00 pm
nice to have you with us. it's i guess all about forensics. or d.n.a. and such things but as i keep making the point we have two weeks down the track now and you wonder what possibly could be found there two weeks later. i think we'll find nothing would be stunned if one were a net if the saudis were so incompetent that they would invite people into find things that would then incriminate them so your skepticism i think is well called for and i think the main going to war and take away from the unending visits a joint visit by the turks and the saudi. investigators as we call them is a public relations move by the saudis to ease pressure and claim that they're being transparent i'd be stunned if we were to come away with this evidence of use to investigators presume of easiest thing to show would be that he did leave the
10:01 pm
consulate which is what they've claimed i mean there is video of him going in one would think yes the evidence is pretty damning and. i have been surprised that the turks and the americans respectively at least have. indicated that they have intelligence penetrations in different ways of the saudis now that's no surprise but that the americans say they have recordings and that the turks acknowledge that they are filming interns and exits is something one usually does not give away because now the saudis have confirmed this it will take measures to counter those means it's no surprise and it does put the saudis in in a bad way because the evidence all points to the fact that the man went in didn't come out. if the forensics team goes in there and doesn't find anything to they have anywhere else they can go i'm just talking out loud here you know outside the
10:02 pm
building. piping the cement to say anything like that is there any other way of. finding something. yeah well my colleagues in the f.b.i. and imagine the turkish equivalents are experts in this and can induce stunning investigations you first have to find the body is someplace or it was someplace if not in the embassy then it was taken away somehow so full investigation would look at all of the cars that left the consulate from the time that shogi entered up until even now and presumably it's the personnel in the consulate and you want to look at their homes and their cars often one can find d.n.a. evidence of incredibly minute amounts but telling in vehicles well after
10:03 pm
an event occurred so i would look at that i would look actually at presumably the saudis cleaned everything weird. with chlorine or who knows what but i would i would look at the drainpipes and i look at all of the belongings of the members of the staff who have come in and come up. really interesting talking to you about that thank you for your time today and still we ways kick coming back to this live shot down we been so quiet outside the embassy for so long now. the cap going past the door at the moment we're waiting to see a turkish saudi team arrive i mean told that they will be going in to noon. and we're keeping an eye on that in of course tomorrow as shall we let us know as soon as there is any more movement. a reminder though in the meantime of just who the man is at the center of all this jamal khashoggi of course saudi
10:04 pm
journalist who was once close to the inner circles of the saudi royal family he earned his reputation as a reformist by pushing boundaries and questioning government policies in two thousand and three khashoggi became a media advisor to prince turki been five so the prince who headed south the saudi arabia's intelligence service and later served as ambassador to the u.s. but last year he went into self-imposed exile in the u.s. after becoming concerned about the actions of crown prince mohammed bin solomon he in fact told al jazeera in march he left the kingdom because he didn't want to be arrested. we move to other news in the largest armed group in syria's rebel held province is yet to withdraw its fighters from the region despite a deadline set by turkey and russia. has not previously said whether it accepts or rejects the terms of the sochi agreement signed last month the deal set a deadline of monday for rebel groups to withdraw all fighters from inside it live in the country's northwest this is it on the map here via the big room which set up
10:05 pm
the demilitarized zone around the northwestern region surrounding the province that dark green line around it a zone meant to be cleared of heavy weapons by october tenth and of rebel fighters by today monday has a report now from neighboring lebanon. a demilitarized zone is being created around syria's it live province a twenty kilometer deep strip of territory is now free of heavy weapons by october fifteenth it should have also been free of fighters considered terrorists by the international community the so-called radical groups didn't pull back but hours before the deadline. the largest military alliance that controls much of the buffer area and the rest of the province signaled that it will comply in its statement. said it appreciated efforts by those inside and outside which is believed to be a reference to turkey to prevent an invasion and wide scale killing it also made
10:06 pm
reference to the foreign fighters saying we won't forget to the group maybe trying to keep unity and prevent betrayal among its ranks that is why an explicit acceptance of the deal would worsen divisions or rejection would risk a military confrontation with turkey which has said it is ready to use force against those who do not comply. quietly met the deadline to withdraw heavy weapons from the zone last week it's not the first time the group has shown pragmatism the buffer zone deal does not call for a surrender or reckon. filiation with the syrian government it created a new front line that protects regime strongholds and russian military assets that many syrians of the rebel controlled province remain skeptical. of the one million more people in that you know what they move the heavy weapons back sometime kilometers or so but i don't support this it just makes it easier for the regime and russia to advance into a loop you cannot trust the regime and russia. this is all
10:07 pm
a game the aim is to cause division among rebel ranks that will lead to infighting that way it becomes easier for the regime to take the area everyone is lying to us . the syrian government has repeatedly said it liberal eventually return to state control but russia and turkey have so far been the decision makers the deals sponsors need each other in the post-war phase i think it says the interests of both parties so this is why i believe that this agreement will hold for for the time being and the turks will be giving more time in order actually to try and to deconstruct the whole complexity of this situation inside it live for the next few weeks and months a few days ago russia said that it could accept a brief delay if it meant the spirit of the agreement was still upheld the deadline was missed but syria's main power brokers seem committed to keeping the deal alive
10:08 pm
. beirut. border crossing between syria and jordan has reopened for the first time in three years territory near the in a sea of crossing was recaptured from rebels by syrian government forces in july this used to be a busy route for goods and people before it was closed during a major battle of the civil war. here's what's coming up view on this news hour there is a crucial summit only weeks away but intense talks in brussels have done little to break break that deadlock. also in sports we're going to hear from the man who's breaking records on the superbike championship that is coming up a little bit later. just a quick little update on jamal khashoggi release the u.s. reaction we mentioned earlier that don't trump was sending my pompei or his secretary of state to meet the saudi king is sending him right now actually we've
10:09 pm
just seen that donald trump says he is leaving within the hour for saudi arabia so it's twenty past nine in the morning there on the east coast and that pompei will travel to other places and is necessary so much in the shortly heading directly to riyadh to speak to the saudi king about the disappearance of jamal khashoggi. we move on now to new hopes for a briggs that breakthrough well have been dashed and u.k. negotiators have once again been unable to come up with an agreement over the future of the border on the island of ireland a suddenly cold meeting of all twenty seven e.u. embassadors in brussels on sunday have led to some optimism about a deal being reached that arlen's foreign minister says the lack of progress is disappointing and time is running out to agree on a break that deal the key issue in the talks is what happens to the border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland right now both are part of the e.u. trade freely flows across the border and many see that is central to maintaining
10:10 pm
peace on the islands but briggs it means northern ireland which is part of the u.k. will leave the leaders in brussels and london both want to avoid what they call a hard border with customs checks on exports big question is how to do that and it's become a major crunch point to the extent that negotiations are now. evolving around a plan for a so-called backstop it's essentially a full back plan for the border of a break that deal can't be reached as backstop would allow business to continue across the border without customs checks among the arguments is how many backstop how we should be applied and for how long britain's prime minister wants a time limit on any deal with the usual apply to the whole u.k. the you want the backstop to remain in place for as long as it takes to reach a wider briggs a deal and for it to apply only to northern ireland in the meantime to resume is facing criticism from all sides within her conservative government to accept or scrap each proposal let's try to clear it all up with jonah hill now who's live for
10:11 pm
us from london. jonah that is this the sticking point the ireland board of the thing which is that the make or break point of brags that. yes i mean that is the subserve stand to issue that is causing all of this trouble there are various issues around it though that offend different factions within the government here and within parliament but yes the crucial point is to arrive at a deal a deal with the e.u. that would allow the open border as it exists now essentially an invisible border between northern ireland and the republic of ireland entrenched in a peace agreement that ended years of civil war on that island to remain open and invisible that's what they're aiming for it's extremely difficult for them to get there because as i say this is a divided cabinet here divided ruling party
10:12 pm
a divided opposition party and a divided parliament all of them divided along different lines now we're going to hear in the next hour or so from the reason may the prime minister who is going to make a statement in parliament that was just announced a couple of hours ago a statement on presumably the status of where these breakthrough talks are now having collapsed essentially on sunday but with this big summit due to come on wednesday should probably remind parliament of the stakes of the timing of the difficulty of a deal is not reached over u.k. crashing out of the e.u. with no deal a so-called heartbreaks it she will no doubt call for unity and perhaps patience as indeed the e.u. itself has done the time line clearly now slipping towards a deal if one is indeed to come yet so what is the immediate timeline now john i know that the date is supposed to be the nineteenth of march of next year when it all has to happen by bhatt's in the immediate future break that summit is coming up
10:13 pm
in brussels what they need to do before then. going. well is that there is a big summit in two days time tomorrow and wednesday night it was hoped that they would cement their leaders a deal there for the withdrawal the sort of withdrawal. for britain to leave the e.u. and therefore for trade talks to begin towards reaching a future trade agreement that was going to be cemented again on it at another summit in mid november well all of this is now looking in doubt whether they'll reach a deal that wednesday will be extremely unlikely there is now this sense will summit in november when they may again attempt to reach a deal but already the mood music in the e.u. some of it perhaps theater some of it serious pointing towards the increased likelihood of a no deal exit for britain from the european union the member states being given orders as it were to start their preparations to up their preparations for such an outcome and indeed that november summit now possibly being mooted as
10:14 pm
a summit to discuss a no deal exit rather than an exit with a deal my goodness john hell thank you for that jonah's outside british parliament there in london. now flooding has killed at least thirteen people in southwest france the province of od'd was hit with the equivalent of several months of rainfall in just a few hours river levels in some places rose to their highest in more than one hundred years we'll get an update on this one from natasha butler in paris natasha . well yes huge rescue operation is underway in this region in the southwest as fronts as you'd imagine are hundreds of firefighters police officers and medical workers are on the scene attending to victims looking to see if they can find anyone else that was perhaps swept away what happened was on sunday night in just five hours three months worth of rain
10:15 pm
fell now that made the river that runs through this region the old river burst its banks and those flood walked waters basically swept through villages and towns using dramatic images as cars and swept away the water really pushing away everything in its path the roads are just crumbled under the force of the weight of that water and some residents in the area have been of course are talking to the media and they've been telling incredible stories one man says that the rain work him up at two o'clock in the morning he sprang out of bed and found himself kneedeep in water another woman talks about having to grab her possessions as the water came raging through her house and try to save herself as well as anything else and in the town of ted one of the towns in this area at least nine people say regional authorities have been killed in this flooding now as you might remember it's a small town in southwestern france and it was the scene back in march of an attack on a supermarket in which a very brave police officer called out or bell tower was actually killed by an
10:16 pm
attacker as he was trying to save hostages there so another tragedy for this town. so that death toll nine do you say there think the total death toll thirteen are concerns that there can and will increase. well what authorities are saying in the region and they are saying this because of course many experts are watching the water levels very closely and they're saying that the water levels could rise that could lee that could lead to the river bursting its banks in other sections and of course cause more damage it's also the case that there could be victims out there that haven't yet been found because it's very difficult to access is there are there are at least fifteen villages or areas that are being marked out as highly sensitive areas or areas where people are being evacuated by helicopter as they can even reach those regions on foot or or by vehicle the prime minister will be there talking to emergency workers and residents
10:17 pm
in the president's also announced that he will go when he can this is as you mentioned before is the worst flooding all of this river in the past century. live paris for us thank you good time to bring instead of culture as well can you talk us through i can see a great big band of cloud there what's the forecast or the forecast is an improvement but first of all let's wind back and see what has happened because this is all kind of linked with what happened over the western parts of portugal thirty six hours ago where we were struck by all still leslie leslie is the one that was a hurrican until just four hours before it made landfall was going to be the first hurrican ever to make landfall in mainland europe but it just missed out still got the very strong winds the only different ones the core of the storm wasn't quite as hot as a horror need to be so that hit the western parts there of the iberian peninsula and as it made landfall very very strong winds and it was the winds that could cause the major problems there then it would its way across the iberian peninsula and as it does so it turned into more of a rainfall event it was absorbed into
10:18 pm
a whole conveyer of what whether that's feeding its way up from africa at the moment so these trees down in the catalonia region are actually due to the water there not juice the wind and you can see more water damage there that was due to around two hundred millimeters of rain that fell some places reporting the possibly up to five hundred milliliters fat millimeters fell so certainly a lot of wet weather there in the northeastern part of spain but then across the border where we've been talking about in the southwestern parts of france there was up to two hundred fifty million millimeters of rain that fell in four to six hours so that's why we saw this so come all the worst is over is heading away eastwards but there's still a risk of seeing a little bit more flooding in the mediterranean region over the next day ok thank you for that update stephanie still ahead for you on this news our school is out in yemen how millions of kids are missing class because of the war led by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. . a university challenge to world famous harvard to some students suffer

to investigate his disappearance. the largest armed group in syria's rebel held province is yet to withdraw its fighters from the region despite a deadline set by turkey and russia the deal set a deadline of monday for rebel groups to patrol fighters from inside italy. and flooding has killed at least thirteen people in southwest france the province of was hit with the equivalent of several months rainfall in a few hours as some river levels rose to the highest in more than one hundred years . so let's talk more about the disappearance of jamal khashoggi with who is the executive director at the center washington joining us on skype nice to see you again you probably heard the news that secretary of state is about to head to saudi arabia to speak directly to king solomon what do you make of the diplomacy which is
10:22 pm
going on do you think it will have an impact or is it just almost doing. what what should be done at the time. yes about an hour ago from tweet that he had a conversation just morning with king some amount of saudi arabia. that king of course denied any knowledge by saudi arabia authorities of what happened. but they agreed to continue the conversation and to pursue the investigation internally in saudi arabia and as a result mr trump decided to send secretary of state from peo immediately to the region to pursue that conversation. so i thought i'd just say look i'm i'm honest as i can see donald trump speaking at the moment actually and we are going to show we go do it live let's have a little listen now. but i will tell you that i feel much differently about
10:23 pm
turkey today than i felt about seven days ago i've a very good feeling toward turkey two days ago i did not know that hell. i don't know we're going to die getting to the bottom of it i can only tell you that is that it may be just one very you know relatively. cold cold probably less than twenty minute visit to make it sound a bit stronger that he had no knowledge and it sounded like he had also the crown prince had no knowledge. we can talk about that we did talk about that i did say this very important the world is watching the world told you that is very important to get to the bottom of it and i think he understands that very well he did say very strongly that he's dealing with turkey that they've come to an agreement that they were going to gay to get together and i
10:24 pm
think that's a good credit. to senator. ok so that was actually a type replay it wasn't live but it did happen just a few moments ago donald trump speaking outside the white house about his conversation with mohammed no not with mohamed bin some with king solomon and just on our guest who is still with us hopefully you could hear all of that as well julio. forgive me i did miss part of your last answer just because i was keeping an eye on that as well is there some significance in the fact that we are talking about king solomon himself and conversations with him and might compare going to see him rather than the person who we all believe to be actually pulling the levers the crown prince. i think so i mean there is a pattern here looking back over the past few weeks and few months whenever saudi arabia got into a serious predicament all of a sudden we see some men stepping in going back to remove remove all of that you
10:25 pm
are moving removing the moving the u.s. embassy to jerusalem that king had to intervene himself and there were several other occasions like this so that signifies that there is concern at the highest level in saudi arabia what strikes me is that we have had from the saudis two weeks of denials almost two weeks of denials now and met even said he never they said he you know he left the building and never actually showed any any proof of that if it turns out from the investigations all from conversations with when we do find out that he was killed inside that i mean how to saudi arabia. come back from this how does it back down or change its story at all sure. it would be very difficult but come on let me tell you this i think this morning this or do you. fear has moved from the criminal and legal phase to the political phase if you will and that's most probably based on my experience in the past this is to the detriment of
10:26 pm
justice to the victims. right now the parties are looking for a political way out and most probably how the investigation whether internally by the saudi authorities in saudi arabia or the joint venture or investigation with. most probably would lead to a partial. result announcing what is convenient to both sides without jeopardizing the political and diplomatic relationship between the two countries so i am not very optimistic that we are going to see. justice done too and that this is the problem we have now moved as you say moved to this political sphere and the media the presidents the leaders the countries they're all focusing on the political side i think we can't lose sight of the fact and look i know you know
10:27 pm
jamal personally that a man who disappeared two weeks ago and we haven't seen him. that's what's so sad i mean that denials frankly are not credible at all. the statements by the by the saudi government have been too little too late we haven't heard any credible and and also to take a statement other than simple denial. denials that are not born by the facts meanwhile a saudi citizen as being some mantle trump on the phone he is our citizen he's a saudi citizen yes he is and that's why saudi arabia has him as a saudi citizen who has served his country very well in my judgment i've known him for thirty years both as a journalist and as a civil servant or advisor in different capacities to the government of saudi arabia and they owe it to him and to his family as as a citizen to explain what happened to him just shon thank you for making the time
10:28 pm
for us again today to appreciate this. thank you my pleasure so there is the live shot of the saudi consulates in istanbul no movement as of yet and we'll be live there is soon as it does happen but we have heard from president trump just in the last few minutes he said he had around a twenty minute phone call i think you said with king solomon the king of saudi arabia said that he denied having any knowledge of what has happened to jamal khashoggi an interim president trumps words he said his denial was very strong so that's all we've got at the moment from the u.s. president other than the fact that he has dispatched secretary of state might pompei or who is leaving probably in the next i'd say twenty to thirty minutes on a flight to saudi arabia. protests have been held in the occupied west bank against a new social security program more than a million private sector employees could be impacted with many saying the scheme will actually leave them more self in charge of the name as more from ramallah. of
10:29 pm
course of all the protesters here are now looking for more stability it was able environment but they see a new social security program for private sector employees just won't provide. in some cases employees say the retirement programs offered by their companies are much better this would impact more than a million palestinians the law go into effect on november first but protesters want a delay in the implementation so improvements can be made i'll be getting much of this money and it's not secure like if the government collapses all my money is gone and the government says it's going to guarantee the funds the government cannot guarantee anything and by this time five employers would contribute ten percent of workers salary the funds would go to retirement benefits constipation for workplace injuries and eternity but this program is privately run unlike the
10:30 pm
one for government employees. and there are some legitimate fears over this lol we are ready to listen to constructive criticism the low could be improved more one day i think two weeks away from implementation there is the possibility of a six month delay in the meantime workshops are being held across the occupied territories to relate to me and. question. meanwhile israeli forces a fire tear gas and rubber bullets into a school in the occupied west bank that they have ordered to be closed dozens of students and school officials needed medical treatment after inhaling tear gas and being hit by mechanics since israeli army ordered the also a school in south apples to be shot after saying the children threw stones at people using the main road the palestinian authority says attempts to harm the school are an attack on international. war in yemen is making it difficult for

10:32 pm
those people eat and drink. the school is stuck in the middle of a relentless battle for territory between hoofy rebels and the saudi u.a.e. led coalition that backs the yemeni government as a last way mad though education is the basis to rebuild the state knowledge is light and ignorance is darkness and we want to tell the government and private and affiliated parties that we are tired of promises and progress nation we want to go back to work not words we want to turn our values into action and into reality if there are no classes to go to the boys according to the united nations children's fund risk being recruited as child soldiers. almost half of yemen's girls if not in school. when the school got hit we studied at home some of our teachers were killed and some students our friends also died it angered us and it saddened at our school was big so now it's just destroyed the

10:48 pm
al-jazeera. every your. donald trump announces he is immediately dispatching his secretary of state to meet the saudi king over the disappearance of a journalist. and a joint turkish team is expected to search the saudi consulate in istanbul where he disappeared two weeks ago.
10:49 pm
i'm here in doha with the world news from al-jazeera. surrounding a deal that was supposed to see the group withdraw from syria's rebel held province rescues and reunions in france heavy rain brings severe flooding to the southwest least thirteen people are dead. so just in the past hour u.s. president donald trump announced he's sending his secretary straight might to meet the saudi king over the case of missing saudi journalist jamal khashoggi it's also a joint turkish team which is expected to enter the consulate in istanbul to investigate his disappearance remember he has not been seen since going in nearly two weeks ago turkish authorities believe he was killed inside the search has been
10:50 pm
delayed for several days it's been a key turkish demand in this unfolding investigation into his disappearance saudi arabia's king solomon and the turkish president. spoke on the phone on sunday evening and al-jazeera has learned the head of saudi intelligence is in turkey now and has to meet turkish officials also there was a tweet on sunday from the saudi embassy in washington which thanked the u.s. for quote not jumping to conclusions whilst also warning of retaliation against. the sanctions donald trump has warned of severe punishment of the kingdom is found to have been behind casualties disappearance and also we have got businesses ford j.p. morgan investment banks blackstone and black rock layer the latest companies to pull out of a major investor conference in the saudi kingdom ok jamal shell is outside the saudi consulate of course i'll come to you in a second jamal i'm going to start with kimberly how could in washington d.c. it started with the tweets from president trump as so often does and now he's spoken as well. the president tweeted giving us our first indication that he had
10:51 pm
spoken with the king of saudi arabia and now we're getting some understanding about the details of that telephone call the president as he left the white house heading on to marine one spoke with reporters saying that his secretary of state my pump aoe has been dispatched to saudi arabia to speak with the king and he is imminently on his way present also saying that turkey and saudi arabia are working together something we did know in terms of the investigation and that they are cooperating but the president says he's underscored with the king in that conversation that the world is watching while also offering a bit of speculation as to what might happen to the missing journalist the president yes donald trump saying that in fact he believes that rogue killers may even be involved and that's the conclusion he came to when he listened to what the saudi king had to say and the president says he found his denial of any knowledge
10:52 pm
to be credible take a listen. i did only tell you that is the road to me. there's one very you know relatively very old gold probably less than one emitters says the dials to me that's not a bit wrong or that he had no knowledge but it sounded like he has also the ground for it had zero dollars still hedging his bets then in some he can be saying things like well leave sounded very convincing but also saying we have to get to the bottom of this and the saudis know that yes the saudis know that and it's interesting that the president is kind of backing off on his statements he made one day go where he was saying that saudi arabia could potentially suffer severe consequences if it is concluded that they in fact are responsible for the disappearance and potential death of the missing journalist so you have to ask yourself why this shift in tone from the president all of the sudden well just a couple of quick points we've got
10:53 pm
a pivotal congressional election coming up in three weeks very concerned is the u.s. market particularly and also the global market about a potential rise in oil prices something that many people are fearful of given the fact that saudi arabia has sort of intimated that there could be some retaliation if there was to be global action against it so that's number one you don't trump doesn't want to see a higher price at the oil pumps or the gas pumps for the american consumer before an election the other thing is jobs because of course we know that the united states and saudi arabia have a very big partnership when it comes to arms sales weapon sales those create u.s. jobs donald trump doesn't want to be seen as threatening jobs right before an important vote for who controls the u.s. congress right now it is the president's party republicans who want to keep it that way so that it leads us to wonder than can believe what severe punishments quote unquote might actually look like because immediately you think of economic issues but don't trump a showing away from those. yes and that's where it gets really complicated
10:54 pm
donald trump has only so much say the u.s. congress has an awful lot more say particularly when it comes to sanctions and well they can put in place legislation which ultimately the president has to sign if the buy there is a bipartisan effort an overwhelmingly bipartisan effort to put in place strong sanctions against saudi arabia and that is something that has already been triggered by a bipartisan group of senators under the global magnitsky act the clock is essentially taking the president may be forced to put in very tough sanctions so well he doesn't want to that is something that is increasingly getting a lot of play in the u.s. congress a lot of support and it's not just members of the opposition party democrats but also republican members of congress thank you kimberly how could an washington d.c. now to istanbul and jamal show there has been definitively more activity there
10:55 pm
today jamal not the arrival yet of the taking. not their arrival of this joint team but it's bizarrely enough kemal the arrival of another team a cleaning team literally minutes off the saudis so they were finally going to allow for turkish authorities to go into the building to investigates a request that they've made for two weeks now we're just under two weeks now we found a cleaning team arrive with massive boxes of bleach and other chemicals and cleaning equipment obviously if this is considered from a police perspective an active crime scene any sort of tampering would be something that would infringe on any investigation there were already questions being raised come out as to why the turks wanted to enter this building and as well as that obviously the house of the consul general and so to the vehicles even though it was such a long time had passed since the disappearance of demotic actually nonetheless they
10:56 pm
managed to get their approval but still prior to their arrival further tampering it seems is being undertaken in the building behind us you can really make it up if you tried during that time though the saudi investigators who are here and as you mentioned there is the head of the saudi intelligence and psyche the saudi officials they've been the tumble police head of police and they've been meeting with their officials we understand that they've finished that meeting and we were expecting them to arrive within the hour this was around and now we're told that still hasn't happened yet so they still haven't arrived and you can see all the commotion in terms of all the journalists there is a mark significant increase in the amount of media personnel cameras and so forth that have arrived so they there were expecting them to come up recently sundown is in about an hour since that is in about an hour an hour and a half from now i believe so we are expecting them to come at some point come out but we're not exactly sure when that will be twice it taken so long jim out two
10:57 pm
weeks we are into this disappearance i know it's very politically sensitive but still it seems quite extraordinary that a man has disappeared and only now two weeks later is an investigation beginning in the place where he disappeared. of course i mean look i mean if it was a car accident that killed somebody you would expect the investigators or to be there within the hour right when you're talking about something as high profile as this a consulate building a well known journalist saudi intelligence officials fifteen men coming in and flying out within twenty four hour waits purported report recordings of what's going on all of this would make us human that it would be a lot swifter but in reality as you mentioned because it's so politically sensitive that his what has delayed it have from the beginning tried to maybe calm down possibly the situation possibly because of just how explosive it is it brings into question the vienna accords it brings into question the norms of intent that
10:58 pm
governance of national community brings into question saudi targets relations saudi american relations even saudi you relations we've seen those statements come out of the united kingdom france and even spain recently as well as obviously germany so all of that has made it. a bit more difficult to navigate the talks have said that they have been trying to build a political consensus internationally speaking that they have shared with their allies in nato namely the united states the evidence they have that they have been trying to get other countries on board because this is an issue that doesn't just affect turkey directly but also as i mentioned the norms that govern the international community and that they didn't want to cut off entirely links with saudi arabia but they wanted the perpetrators themselves as far as we understand from leaks they believe the crown prince mohammed bin some money specifically that they wanted them to essentially pay for but now what you're hearing donald trump say possibly rogue elements and you're hearing the other kind of murmurings coming about there is a concern among some people here especially the friends of democracy that there
10:59 pm
will be an attempt to find a scapegoat in order to get them to have the blame rather than the officials and authorities who actually or did either of the force disappearance or is that's like say the murder of john specialty all right jamal do let us know as soon as you see any movement outside that some. a consulate in istanbul a reminder of course of who the man is at the center of all this jamal khashoggi the saudi journalist who was once close to the inner circles of the saudi royal family he earned his reputation as a reformist by pushing boundaries and questioning government policies in two thousand and three because should he become a media advisor to prince turki been fine so the prince who headed saudi arabia's intelligence service and later served as ambassador to the u.s. but last year he went into self-imposed exile in the u.s. after becoming concerned about the actions of crown prince mohammed bin some and he told al jazeera in march he left the came to him because he didn't want to be arrested. more of that of course to come but now the other day news and the largest
11:00 pm
armed group in syria's rebel held a province is yet to withdraw its fighters spicer deadline set by turkey and russia we're talking about. yes which had not previously said whether it accepted or rejected the terms of the sochi agreement signed last month the deal set a deadline of monday for rebel groups to redraw all fighters from inside libya in the country's northwest this is the map showing in this ad lib agreement which set up the demilitarized zone around the northwestern region the zone was meant to be cleared of heavy weapons by october tenth and of rebel fighters by monday. as a report now from neighboring lebanon. a demilitarized zone is being created around syria's it live province a twenty kilometer deep strip of territory is now free of heavy weapons by october fifteenth it should have also been free of fighters considered terrorists by the international community the so-called radical groups didn't pull back but hours
11:01 pm
before the deadline. the largest military alliance that controls much of the buffer area and the rest of the province signaled that it will comply in its statement. said it appreciated efforts by those inside and outside which is believed to be a reference to turkey to prevent an invasion and wide scale killing it also made reference to the foreign fighters saying we won't forget to the group maybe trying to keep unity and prevent betrayal among its ranks that is why an explicit acceptance of the deal would worsen divisions or rejection would risk a military confrontation with turkey which has said it is ready to use force against those who do not comply. quietly met the deadline to withdraw heavy weapons from his own last week it's not the first time the group has shown pragmatism the buffer zone deal does not call for. a surrender or reconciliation with the syrian government it created
11:02 pm
a new front line that protects regime strongholds and russian military assets that many syrians of the rebel controlled province remain skeptical. that you know they moved heavy weapons back sometime kilometers or so but i don't support this it just makes it easier for the regime and russia to advance into it you cannot trust the regime and russia. this is all a game the aim is to cause division among rebel ranks that will lead to infighting that way it becomes easier for the regime to take the area everyone is lying to us . the syrian government has repeatedly said it will eventually return to state control but russia and turkey have so far been the decision makers the deals sponsors need each other in the post-war phase i think it's the interests of both parties so this is why i believe that this agreement will hold for for the time being and the turks will be giving more time in order to try and to. the
11:03 pm

11:08 pm
night so that she can stand behind britain's side of that bargain at that summit well the answer to that must at this point seem unlikely why because this country appears politically paralyzed over bragg's it the lack of consensus is profound parliament a cabinet rather is divided the ruling party is divided the opposition party is divided parliament is divided everyone on different dividing lines will compete in dividing lines rather there are factions on the right and the left progresses factions who reject the deal being discussed that would see the u.k. remain in the customs union at least until a trade arrangement is struck they say that is just a back door to a permanent customs union membership it deprives britain of the right to strike its own trade deals outside the u.k. that's a sort of holy grail of branches and then the other key to all of this the d u b the unionist party propping up to resume a very good majority in parliament there in northern ireland of course they have

11:11 pm
there in that town of treb at least nine people have died says the local mayor so once again this small town in southwestern france struck by tragedy and what local authorities are saying is that the floodwaters could continue to rise that could cause the banks of the river to burst elsewhere and it could cause more damage and that's why emergency services say they will continue to work and stay in the region to ensure that everything is done to keep people's life safe. protests have been held in the occupied west bank against a new social security program more than a million private sector employees could be impacted with many saying the scheme will actually leave them worse off a tough game has more from ramallah. of course all the protesters here are now looking for more stability it is unstable environment but they see a new social security program for private sector employees just won't provide. in

11:22 pm
mediating a peace deal between the warring parties in south sudan which gained its independence in twenty eleven sudan is also taking part in the saudi u.s. military operations in yemen with troops on the ground and several fighter jets president omar al bashir has been in power since nine hundred eighty. nine he's the first head of state to be indicted by the international criminal court for suspected war crimes he dissolved his government last month amid a widespread economic crisis but after almost thirty years as president will bashir seek another term in twenty twenty or will he pave the way for the next generation sudan's foreign minister i'll do did he mohammed ahmed talks to al-jazeera. elder diri mohammed amin foreign minister of saddam thank you for talking to al-jazeera may i start by asking you whether changes in the air in sudan one senior
11:23 pm
diplomat said to me saddam used to be seen as a troublemaker now it's trying to be a peacemaker well thank you very much i think what's happening in iran of course. might be considered by some to be new but in fact it's an indication of what when it started very early in the country since that time when we decided to give the nation to south sudan aspire the war effort to really it is one problems in the country and we have been pursuing this for quite a time one of the big things that's changed in the last year is the way you are perceived particularly by the united states because they've lifted some of the sanctions against you let's just go back to the one nine hundred ninety s. when bill clinton first put those sanctions in place you were seen as a pariah state one point asama bin laden was living in khartoum they fired
11:24 pm
missiles bombs at khartoum at one point they blamed you for the u.s. embassy bombings in africa they blamed you for the attack on the u.s.s. cole you really were in the u.s. is bad books well but but what they did and did not find at all. in the united states no. you can tell me exactly why sudan was in the first place included in that list is for those i would load in short stay into the sunlight and had stayed for quiet longer piedras in other parts of a part of the world in other countries the us itself included in his disdain today was before he stablished. any links with international terrorism even before the time he went to afghanistan so why sudan in particular has to be included because of this day of osama nobody knows there are still some sanctions in place and most importantly does this designation that you are state sponsor of terror
11:25 pm
tell us what that designation means how bad is that for sudan while having two phases of engagement with the united states the first phase where which he had ended sometime ago. had led to the lifting of sudan from particular sanctions particularly gnomic sanctions and now we look forward to the new phase of engagement which is basically intended to see it through that an image dropped from the list of these days is sponsored into my understanding is the us a pushing for two things in the second phase an end to state sponsored violence and improvement in the human rights record let's deal with the first one the state sponsored violence in particular in the so-called two areas and in darfur where the un is winding down that joint mission it has with the african union do you accept that in the past your government has been involved in repression in that areas in those
11:26 pm
areas and is that something that's ending. as you know what was taking place in south kordofan and blue nile was very much connected to what they experienced in south sudan the movement that took up we punched in those two areas was for the time being part of the governing. party in south sudan religion between them was obvious. because of what is happening right now in south sudan we believe that it is now very much timely to either is the issue of the willian in south kordofan and blue nile. and to put it very clearly in that i have perspective and to see to it that also level of violence in those areas subsites but clearly there are people on the ground in those areas who have grievances how do you meet those grievances we address that matter before we respect the south sudan.
11:27 pm
formula for peace and you control asian for social healing and we feel that the same would also apply to those two areas because the other issue is human rights and there are still human rights abuses according to human rights organizations this is a recent letter that was written by thirty one human rights organizations international ones like amnesty international human rights watch plus african human rights organizations and ones that deal specifically with sudan they say this is suppression of peaceful protests they say this excessive force attacks on the media arbitrary detention trumped up criminal proceedings ill treatment torture and ongoing violence in darfur south could have on blue nile well i thought that all through you to go out following your arsenal of documents and it was. that report that was issued by the human rights council in houma last consolation we need to
11:28 pm
progress that was made by sudan or over the previous year this is the first and the most important. report that we got since twenty five years and what isin sudan is improving and situation is improving and we believe that the prob is that we have just made and recorded at the. humanize currency is a progress as should be sustainable and a progress which will fit though of course in the past there have been all sorts of allegations against your government and your president particularly with regard to doff or you remember a former secretary of state colin powell accused your government of committing genocide genocide there are two international arrest warrants out for your president from the international criminal court those are still there well the fact that african union said that it is not having confidence in the international
11:29 pm
criminal court nor is the united states. also assuming that it was joining. this unanimity mading you know nudity against the i.c.c. tells us that whatever accuse asians or indictments issued by the i.c.c. are in fact meaning very little in that a national community it was your predecessor abraham gun dog who did the negotiations with the united states to get the first group of sanctions lifted he before he left his job complained that sudan's diplomats were not being paid he won't be able to pay the rent on various of your embassies around the world doesn't this show one big problem area even though some of the sanctions have been lifted your economy remains in a dire state and it is facing a lot of a lot of problems because of the sanctions that were imposed on us by the united states of america you know a lot really and also some of the michelangelo's action that we imposed on us
11:30 pm
because of the issue of therefore we look forward now to lifting the sanctions and definitely this will give us an opportunity to be integrated more and more in the international economy and so all the economy problem for that we are facing one of the things that has happened in recent months surprised me. which is saddam took on the role as the negotiator with regard to south sudan that surprised me because you were involved in the longest civil war in africa with the people who now are south sudan how did that come about that you got this role to negotiate why did saddam put itself forward and why did the regional countries decide you should try and solve this sudan if the most connected to south sudan for so many reasons that are very obvious secondly it would then it also do most influenced by by what is taking place currently in south sudan in terms of receiving more if you use forms i'm sure
11:31 pm
the intention of also being affected by the insecurity in his house with the receiving a lot of small weapons smuggled from south sudan because of course also we have lost a lot of fortunatus for working together with south sudan to alleviate poverty and to assist our economy this is the reason why everybody in the region feels that sudan is better placed and better position to deal with the matter and to take up the contribution if otoh south to. defend them in the past south sudan that issue has seen some rivalry between uganda and sudar have you done some sort of deal with uganda because some analysts suggesting maybe you've decided to share the the oil revenues of south sudan the in return for doing the city peace deal there is no deal between sudan uganda in terms of sharing
11:32 pm
anything you wanted not having anything to do with annoying south sudan oil is boarding which sudan was going to happen in this matter is that we will be restoring the south sudan oil fields to their former levels of production there's going to help the economy of flowers without of course. basically because that's the country to which the order of the news will go it will also help us in that italy because we are going to draw a little. or do use and royalties of transporting for transporting the oil through our pipeline to port sudan uganda of course is a neighboring country that will benefit from peace and stability in childhood there we were going to benefit and the way the european kenya would benefit also maybe then you would think that has changed the fact that uganda and so then i started working together with out in the past we were not working together. with that we discussed the matter we found that if south sudan is going to continue as it is and
11:33 pm
to do it in a social date is going to deteriorate we will be having a black hole in the e.u. another so malia indicator even if it only has an outhouse right now this is it dated from what had happened but of course south sudan could also be another problem today region in general and it's you know turkey and in particular to uganda and sudan uganda into their own right now receiving more a few years. for themselves with them than any other country and this is it in a way that will continue to really decide to work together and to see to it south sudan establishes and that peace prevails in south sudan because in south sudan we have a new country that's only existed for seventy years and we've had much of that time with conflict a new report from the london school of hygiene and tropical medicine didn't analysis they believe the death toll is much greater than people thought before maybe as many as four hundred thousand tell me how this new deal is going to work
11:34 pm
my understanding is it's the same two man at the center of it president salva kiir and shar is going to be the vice president have to have we not tried this before and it failed aren't you putting your trust in the suit to say man who failed before it's not about to man it's about some would say it is. it's a personal feud is there not an element of that well i think we have to look deeper and find out that in fact the problem that we face in south sudan is that this will say it in its entirety is very tickler divided between two communities that is then we're under dinka the two main out of presenting those two communities if we're going to remove that woman and then we will find out that the conflict is still continuing and we are not addressing them in return for the real conflict the dichotomy between the two communities then will not be resolving them either now it is now the killing that is being forced out of there is themselves is to really see
11:35 pm
to it that once again they create confidence among themselves and the first place between their country and the international community at large and i think there is no reason for them not to live up to this telling it's a detailed agreement perhaps you could explain to us what happens next my understanding is there is a ceasefire in place and then we have the strange term cunto meant going to get the forces from both sides to go back to their military bases and try and turn them into one army is that right exactly but speaking about the activities of self they pull it within the party transition that's that's a period of eight months in wish or we should see to it that all of the forces and troops will be assembled separately. and that. a measure of disengagement is paid suit and then we follow through to see to it that the right people from different camps are selected and trained jointly to create
11:36 pm
what we are now if you're referring to the nucleus army of south sudan this is an army that should be a lawyer or little selves to that not any tripe or ethnic group it shall be a de tribal and the tribal ised army and it's really the region for peace. stability to prevail in south sudan in the future this is one of the major activities. that should now take place within the returns on what happens while this is going on the u.n. special representative nicholas hasten has talked about security gap how do you fill that while we agree that some measures need to now to be boosted why this is happening you missed for instance which is a piece of the u.n. force saddam. should right now be boosted the. protection force should also be boosted we believe that ugandan for then in
11:37 pm
particular should be included in this in this for how many more troops about four thousand troops we believe that this is very much required to free energy committee that might appear now of course we dealing with south sudan we're dealing with saddam there's one bits left over which is abby a i know it's a place you you know well you're from that part of sudan in the first place what happens with i.p.a. that's the bit that's on the international agreements no one's decided which country should be. you know currently having the unifil force now the un is discussing the matter and trying to find out with the units for force needs to be configuring it if it is our conviction that for the time being we should better continue with this force us is we have voiced this concern to the u.n. security and i'm. to do and secretary general of the same country and well boys i
11:38 pm
would also to them by vice president of south sudan we believe that it's time now for caning troops that are present in. we have started talking about i v a may be up to now informally the state of the two countries the two communities as well and we believe that. in due course so there would be an agreement on what should be the next step in our being you live in an interesting maybe hood in fact one could argue you live in two neighborhoods because you're a member of the african union and also a member of the arab league and as you know there's all sorts of divisions and shifting alliances going on for example the disputes over the nile between ethiopia and egypt or in the middle east there seems to be lines being drawn between saudi arabia u.a.e. and egypt and perhaps turkey and qatar on the other side and yet you seem to be
11:39 pm
steering a middle path in these divisions well this is in fact what we are trying to do sometimes we succeed but sometimes those who find it very difficult to convince the different parties we bit opposed to this middle ground and is did instead of trying to take sight of course we always think that is for the best interest of or of content parties to do have a nice. is a country that is having its own problems that require us. peace within itself requires time to other its own issues first and foremost because you have substantial saudi involvement in the egyptian investments in in sudan and yet it's reported that you have done a deal with turkey for a naval base and qatar for a port how are you managing to pull off this trick of keeping everyone happy it
11:40 pm
seems for now well we did not agree for any naval base here it's just sort of development project two to the city of of so i can. we haven't agreed to look at any part of sudan to to any country but nonetheless we're working with was all of the players in the region to see to it that a unit a stable they're included and got included and we hope that. this will not mean that sudan is taking sides at all in any dispute we hope for the best of all of the region and we are doing our best to see to it that all the problems that are now being faced by the states in the region will be resolved peacefully and i mean there is one dispute where you're taking a site that's yemen you are part of the coalition led by saudi arabia and the u.a.e. are you happy with your role in that coalition that according to the human rights
11:41 pm
office of the united nations there have been seventeen thousand civilian deaths between march twenty fifteen and august twenty eighth scene and they say that the majority of these casualties were carried out by the saudi led coalition and its bombing does that concern you also allegations that the u.a.e. troops have been involved in all sorts of torture at their camps but of course was happening in any war is that definitely some measures that. well intended measures my go every and might affect you know of civilians but nonetheless it's my opinion and believe that nobody is really targeting civilians peers say or thinking that civilians should be the target of any to play them so they would in this war for that i mean it's obvious that we are part and parcel of
11:42 pm
that call even but does does not mean that we have is top study in the situation so it's still under review definitely to the situation and find what are the most appropriate things what has to do and of course the thing that all of the humanitarian community are concerned about with regard to the war in yemen concerns the coalition's next move and what they do with regard to data which is a city but most importantly a port that provides so much food for yemen should there be an all out on sort in data in your view because mark lowe cock the humanitarian coordinator of the u.n. said that could be the worst humanitarian catastrophe of the twenty first century we're trying our best. our lives to see to is that any humanitarian situation. that is unfavorable is to be able in him and we are in close consultation with or our allies in this matter and we are very hopeful such as to have him would be
11:43 pm
avoided we've talked about a feeling of change potentially in sudan and in the region but of course in sudan one thing doesn't change and that is your president omar al bashir he seized power in a military coup he's since been elected up not saying he's he's in any way a dictator but that's how he got to power that was in one nine hundred eighty nine so next year he'll have been in power for thirty years i understand that your national congress party already want him to be the candidate in the election twenty twenty is it really right for him to keep going on and on because the history of africa shows that many leaders go on too long just look at mugabe. well situation in africa might not be of course different from what is taking place anywhere in the world but we have to say you have to really see it and recognize
11:44 pm
that democracy needs time to take root we have started the process of democratization in our country we have right now had a constitution that everybody respects and accept. opposition parties included some of the people who are right now fighting with us are all of the time voicing concern about respect of the constitution this has not been the case a few years ago before that constitution was put in place this is a huge you know step taken forward and then democracy will gladly take root you can create democracy overnight and this means. the process of election democratization regular you know bouts. of violence that we should be avoided and replaced by by in fact you know recourse to the back of books is a process that will continue for
11:45 pm
a very long while in any state to really take root and we haven't started that i'm a bit hopeful that in due course we will be really speaking about a full fledged democracy. but i remember the last election president bush himself said i'm not sure i want to go on said that he was persuaded by his party isn't it really time now you have a very strong ruling party for a new person to lead sudan going forward that process i think is right now undergoing we have witnessed just a few days ago. when a young player minister has taken over the place. another prime minister who was there while for a while and we will continue so do you have discussions ever with president bashir about how long he will stay in the job do you say to him don't overstate your
11:46 pm
welcome your excellency well of course this is a matter that is now being considered within. a political deal of the ruling party and definitely discussions are like the one we're suggesting i think makes foreign minister thank you very much for your horses are also. part.

a joint to. finally do you to end to and search the saudi consulate in istanbul that is where the last thing. we will have developments and look at the delicate diplomacy behind the scenes. also on the grid a deadline to leave the largest rebel group and syria's has until monday to pull its fighters. in the last rebel held look at what this means for the country's seven year civil war and asian americans are often seen as successful high achievers but some assuming one of the world's best known universities for discrimination could the legal battle have implications for higher education and the middle of the model minority. prime minister and sleeping rough is no longer allowed in hungary of course more than once you could get prison time the government says it's in the best interests of society but critics say it's i'm satisfied with what's trending online and we'll be waiting for your life.
11:50 pm
you know what the news grid live on air and streaming online through your troops facebook live and al-jazeera dot com the investigation into the disappearance of jamal khashoggi is picking up pace after days a stalling and a seeming lack of progress there have been rapid developments just in the past few hours. a joint took a saw the team is expected to enter the saudi consulate in istanbul to investigate the case of the missing sabi journalist jamal khashoggi has not been seen since entering the compound nearly two weeks ago turkish authorities believe he was killed and side now the u.s. secretary of state is on his way to riyadh to meet the saudi king my pompei is also expected to travel to turkey that is off to the u.s. president donald trump discussed the case with king said i'm on. i guess
11:51 pm
secretary of state might. do immediately get on a plane go to saudi arabia. go there like that sorry would probably go with regard to go to. the king told me that the go to arabia are working hand in hand very closely on getting to the bottom of what happened. so we'll see what happens but my car is my car they always leaving literally within an hour or so you're heading toward the arabia. we are. going to leave nothing on covered with that being said the king firmly denied any knowledge of it. he didn't really know maybe i don't want to get in a bind but it sounded to me like baby could have been road kill or you know we're going to try getting to the bottom of it very but it was
11:52 pm
a lot. he will be talking to kimberly how is she is live for us in washington d.c. but first let's go to our cost fondant in istanbul jemaah a child who has been standing outside that consulates not just today monday but for days now jamal what's going on has that team of turkish investigators have they arrived. well it's been i mean we've been waiting here for several hours being told that they will arrive soon soon soon and then the movement that we just saw in the past five minutes i don't know if we can play that out from the studios in doha has been of a few vehicles that are in so they are saudi diplomatic vehicles and we understand that the saudi team has arrived and so they just come from the police to the main police departments here in istanbul where they were meeting with their turkish officials so the pictures that you'd be seeing would be all of those saudi
11:53 pm
officials arriving they came in quickly into the doors and closed that behind them which would suggest maybe that the turks who they were meeting with would be would closely follow them but as of yet elizabeth they haven't arrived prior to that and again i believe we have video of this one of the more bizarre twists in this story was that right after the saudis announced that they would be allowing for turkish investigators to enter the consulate and they have been asking to do this for many days now a cleaning company arrived to the consulates boxes load of chemical bought bleach and other cleaning equipment and that was taken into the building behind us it really is something you couldn't write a few short about it now. the idea behind this obviously in what as many people. are surprised is that regardless if it was just a simple fact of a scheduled cleaning if something is considered to be
11:54 pm
a crime scene an active crime scene and therefore any form of temper and obviously would be something that would be unwelcome to say the least by forensic experts so the latest developments in terms of who has entered the building behind me elizabeth we've had a cleaning company with loads of equipment going in and we've had the saudis we still haven't seen any charts and so. we've got a comment here from a viewer patrick on facebook this is writing saying well the cleaners have already been en is nothing left to find i mean. this is not a good look at having cleaners come in two weeks after. she was last seen and turkish investigators still haven't been allowed inside again it has been nearly two weeks why has it taken it so why isn't it why has it taken so long i mean even without the cleaners elizabeth it is bizarre to think that within two we are to true weeks of the disappearance of somebody that the investigate that
11:55 pm
something would have been covered up if indeed something happened inside so the fact that it's taken that long had already drawn a lot of skepticism from people who have been following this case nonetheless the turks see that the reason why it's taken so long as they have been trying to do this diplomatically without rocking the boat so to speak without causing any sort of international fallout diplomatic crisis between them and saudi arabia and ally that they've been trying to build international consensus that have been trying to share the information they've had with their allies in washington as well as in london berlin and other european countries and it was once they got that momentum going they were able to put the pressure on the saudis and therefore then the saudis succumbed to that demand to allow the turks in. could it be that the saudis thought that they were never going to be forced to allow the saudis in and the turks and that's why they didn't need to clean it other time did those cleaning company that clean company and come in just because it finally these guys were coming in all of this is all speculation but one thing for sure in terms of the
11:56 pm
facts that we know know as you mentioned jamal khashoggi went in he didn't come out the turks claim for sure they have recordings that the man was brutally murdered inside this idea has been touted by donald trump that this could be rogue elements again is not being received well here when you think about the idea of fifteen saudi officials diplomats intelligence officers people worked in the embassies in london and other countries the head of the forensics department in the saudi front forces flying on private jets that were owned by a company that is linked to the royal courts coming into the consulates and then going out all of that would make it very difficult to believe the story that these were rogue elements dealing outside of the realms of orders and directives from the states considering the absolute monarchy that saudi arabia is jamal thank you very much for that for now that is. joining us live from outside the salivate consulate and as we'll of course be going back to him once we see any movement but for now let's go to can really help it she's joining us live from washington d.c.
11:57 pm
with more of what the president has been saying this monday sending the secretary of state to meet with king solomon over the disappearance of a journalist kimberly i mean that says just how much there is at stake here. that's right certainly the president is looking to try to get more information as the world is about what exactly happened inside that consulate but the president is also trying to potentially introduce other explanations for what might have happened of course as my colleague mentioned there there is the speculation according to audio that in fact that. she was murdered inside that consulate but donald trump as he left the white house in the last couple hours saying after speaking with the saudi king that in fact it could even potentially be rogue elements you have to ask yourself why the president would be saying that he also
11:58 pm
said that the saudi king has very strong denials of any knowledge of what happened to the missing journalist well here's the reason is that the two economies are very closely linked there is a big concern about the rise in oil prices that's something that donald trump has been concerned about for a long time even before entering the white house the fact that it could potentially go into the triple digits that's one concern because u.s. consumers don't want to see higher prices at the gas pumps the other big concern is the relationship between the united states and saudi arabia when it comes to arms sales because arms sales provide an awful lot of jobs it's a job generator in this country donald trump is a jobs president that's what he came into the white house promising to deliver jobs create jobs and raise middle income wages so this is a very problematic relationship for the president and perhaps that's why you see him taking it so seriously sending his secretary of state might pump aoe to try to get to the bottom of what exactly happened and then link committee that you're
11:59 pm
talking about between these two countries economies that of course transcends who have those in power in this current administration bought the trump administration is particularly close to the sound the leadership and is that coming under pressure for that now. there's no question there's an awful lot of scrutiny particularly with the relationship between donald trump's son in law white house aide jarrett cushion or and his relationship with the crown prince there's also a very close relationship just with this white house in general not just for the reasons that i mentioned but also because there is of course this was the location of where donald trump decided to go for his very first foreign trip to riyadh they made a very big display of the president going setting up this anti-terrorism financing center there in riyadh one that we know that steve minissha the treasury secretary is set to go and visit and says he will continue to make annual visits this is
12:00 am
a relationship that the white house has invested heavily in with respect to oil prices there's another big concern because saudi arabia is the nation it's counting on as the u.s. as part of its broader run strategy tries to push iran out of the oil market something that it will use continuing to do so it is already very much in terms of its foreign policy closely linked and well the u.s. congress is pushing back on that saying that there need to be high level sanctions triggering the global act in order to make that happen we see the president pushing back committee thank you very much for that phenomenas committee held all the latest out of washington d.c. we are going to get more on this now we're joined by randy the former ambassador to cut them and he's joining us live from istanbul mr brandon very good to have you with us on al-jazeera we would of course talk more about the foreign policy the diplomatic fallout and consequences from this but before we do the latest developments the turkish team finally being a nod and to the consulate on monday if what he has been saying is proven if
12:01 am
a journalist has been killed sure and the consulate but on turkish soil won't do what will they have to do. well thank you elizabeth first of all it's important that we have a joint investigation team we have a joint working group. a bit late to start investigating though. and it's it's not really. we're not expecting much from from this working group it's. it's too late to investigate but of course the church authorities has been trying they have been trying to uncover facts and data friend from making strong statements in the absence of consequential evidence but the working group will continue to work together in the. absence of probably a common understanding of what has what has happened so as regards the turkish
12:02 am
government if this alledged crime took place here on the soil of turkey it's a direct violation of the sovereignty of turkey first and also it it hits the dignity of our state and also it's a gross violation of human rights and and fundamental freedoms it's a while ation of the freedom of expression it is what you're doing is here it's the alledged killing of a journalist. a dissident and some guy and all of this is against a culture of peace yes and so given all of that how do you expect the turkish government to deal with saudi if these allegations are proven and also why is the ticker president speaking to cannes film on and not the de facto leader who is his son mohamed in salon and why has donald trump done the same. well it's only natural that in diplomacy leaders there are the counterparts of course of president
12:03 am
. is is the king king solomon so leaders they usually engage with other leaders if if prince mohammad be someone who would be in charge down he would probably be calling our president. and another to forgive my interruption but hasn't calm prince mohammed bin salam on being in charge for all intensive purposes of the last few he is. in practice he he may be ruling the country but officially is the leader and this is why president and also president tell you fired on. will engage with with king solomon it's normal in diplomacy. according to the protocol also that they should call directly. king solomon ok well the u.s. secretary of state is now on his way to saudi arabia to meet king solomon and after
12:04 am
that he's going to be heading to turkey they have been improving relations between the u.s. and turkey just in the last few days because of the turkish release of the american pasta andrew bronson how do you expect this meeting to go and how do you think that they won't work together over this case i think it's important that that the circuits are as safe as was and it was it's in the region as his was it in saudi arabia first riyadh and on his was a thing also on camera the turkish capital but it's too late i mean it's just this was it should have happened ten days ago it's now two days after the disappearance of treat and now probably we probably they are trying to manage the crisis. or mr not more than that i don't expect much thank you very much for your time on this that renegade joining us live from istanbul. now there have been
12:05 am
a couple of worldwide trends coming out of saudi arabia sorry tell us more well there's been actually quite a lot of hashtags coming out of saudi arabia have been trending pretty much in the last twenty four hours most of them of course are in arabic but their people have been tweeting in english as well so they're obviously clearly trying to send a message to the western world on how they feel and how they are supporting their royals and the crown prince mohammed bin so man and his father so i just think we have a technical issues hit see if we can bring up any tweets i'm afraid doesn't look like we have but i think i'll have to come back to you on that for later but that just kind of gives you an idea of what people are talking about in saudi arabia now are looks like we have a bit more so read one of the tweets that someone was talking about was about the vision twenty thirty and that's been in the making for a few years is an ambitious plan to modernize and diversify the kingdom's economy
12:06 am
away from oil spearheaded by the crown prince himself of course some of been some man and its aim is to increase foreign investment boost tourism and grow the private sector but the case has been terrible of course p.r. for saudi with many investors pulling out of the upcoming davos in the desert conference and lots of people have also been tweeting saying that they're crossing a red line and that they're not afraid of the rest of the world so that just gives you an idea of what people are talking about online and you can get in touch of us through the show the hashtag of course is a janie's grit. thank you very much sorry now all the latest developments on the story can be found on the special page on al-jazeera dot com called jamal khashoggi and there you'll find the latest listening post episode looking at the conflict the media narratives around the story and we do want to hear your thoughts on all of these stories some very good comments coming into us from facebook this is received
12:07 am
who says that either the saudi government kilcash orgy or they are unable to keep road kill is out of the official buildings neither is good a lot of comments about those cleaners that have been seen going into the saudi consulate saying all traces of d.n.a. would have been professionally cleaned by now and why so many cleaners just before inspection you can get in touch with us on any of our online platforms use the hash tag a.j. news going on twitter handle is at a.j. english we're on facebook slash facebook dot com slash al-jazeera send us a message on whatsapp or also on telegram the numbers plus line seven four five or one trip or one four nine. now we're going to move on to some other news and the largest group in syria's rebel held province is yet to withdraw its fighters from a buffer zone despite a deadline set by turkey and russia high at the h.-d.
12:08 am
is hasn't said whether it accepts or rejects the terms of these sort of greenland the deal set up a demilitarized area around the north western region surround an adlib problems it was meant to be cleared of heavy weapons by october tenth and a rebel fighters by now they now hold the reports from neighboring lebanon. a demilitarized zone is being created around syria's lip province a twenty kilometer deep strip of territory is now free of heavy weapons by october fifteenth it should have also been free of fighters considered terrorists by the international community the so-called radical groups didn't pull back but hours before the deadline. the largest military alliance that controls much of the buffer area and the rest of the province signaled that it will comply in its statement that leadership said it appreciated efforts by those inside and outside which is believed to be a reference to turkey to prevent an invasion and wide scale killing it also made
12:09 am
reference to the foreign fighters saying we won't forget to the group maybe trying to keep unity and prevent betrayal among its ranks that is why an explicit acceptance of the deal would worsen divisions or rejection would risk a military confrontation with turkey which has said it is ready to use force against those who do not comply to hit a sham quietly met the deadline to withdraw heavy weapons from his own last week it's not the first time the group has shown pragmatism the buffer zone deal does not call for a surrender or reconciliation with the syrian government it created a new front line that protects regime strongholds and russian military assets that many syrians of the rebel controlled province remain skeptical. of the one million homes that are you know what are they moved the heavy weapons back sometime kilometers or so but i don't support this it just makes it easier for the regime and russia to advance into
12:10 am
a loop you cannot trust the regime and russia. this is all a game the aim is to cause division among rebel ranks that will lead to infighting that way it becomes easier for the regime to take the area everyone is lying to us . the syrian government has repeatedly said it liberal eventually. returned to state control but russia and turkey have so far been the decision makers the deals sponsors need each other in the post war phase but i think it serves the interests of both parties so this is why i believe that this agreement will hold for for the time being and the turks will be giving more time in order to try to deconstruct the whole complexity of this situation inside it live for the next few weeks and months a few days ago russia said that it could accept a brief delay if it meant the spirit of the agreement was still upheld the deadline was missed but syria's main power brokers seem committed to keeping the deal alive
12:11 am
. beirut. now to the u.k. where britain's prime minister trey's m a says she still believes a brics a deal as possible she's been dressing parliament after the latest talks on the u.k.'s withdrawal from the european union failed and nation of twenty seven best that is on sunday had sparked optimism about an agreement the main sticking point remains the border between ireland and the northern ireland may says there has been progress but there's more work to do let's go to our correspondent john howell now he is joining us live from london so what else did she have to say joy and progress but more work to do what is that work and what happens now. well yes i mean to reserve a was a pains to point out that time is short and she said we simply can't allow disagreement at this point to lead to a no deal bragg's it britain crashing out of the e.u.
12:12 am
century with out any legal framework governing its relationship with the e.u. other than world trade organization rules she said it's time for who heads to prevail and yet there is no getting away from that core central problem that she faces as you pointed out there the issue of a bore. or on the island of ireland between the republic of ireland and northern ireland a british territory both sides agree that that border has to remain invisible an open border in keeping with the belfast agreement that ended years of war on the island of ireland they both agree that life must go on there in time as it does now in other words after that the terms of a future trade relationship have been concluded but between now and then there is the need for a backstop an insurance policy for the people of that land of no hardboard it will appear and this is where it gets complicated because the initial plan had been that
12:13 am
northern ireland the british territory would remain part of the customs union and a you structure is while those talks progressed that was eventually dismissed by the british side as a breach of british sovereignty instead mrs may put forward the idea that the whole of the u.k. would form the basis of that insurance policy but only for a fixed period of time she wanted to clear out date to satisfy the very restive pro brigs of factions in her party and her cabinet who see that as a breach of british sovereignty in its ability to reach trade deals outside the e.u. well the e.u. isn't budging on a timeframe and it says it wants to see the northern ireland plan as a backstop to the backstop should do u.k. wide plan fail it's complicated stuff take a listen to what she had to say. first the easy says there is not time to work out the details of the su kyi it's a new sion in the next few weeks so even with the progress we have made these still requires a backstop to the backstop effectively an insurance policy for the insurance policy
12:14 am
and they want this to be the northern ireland only solution that they had previously proposed we have being clear that we cannot agree to anything that threatens the integrity of our united their. now she insists that lot's of progress has been made that these are essentially technical details but whichever way you look at it mrs very is in a real bind she faces the possibility of resignations from her cabinet because they don't like the way talks are progressing on the u.k. deals he faces the possibility of her democratic unionist partners in northern ireland removing their support from her government because they don't like the idea of northern ireland remaining on the table that could lead to the collapse of the reason may's government she says a deal is still possible with the e.u. that presupposes that a deal can be agreed in the u.k. first and that's where the real problem lies john thank you very much for that for
12:15 am
now that is john holl live in london and as joined i was saying it is complicated and i would recommend this article on al-jazeera dot com six months to go until breaks that all you need to know you find that on al-jazeera dot com just the searching by searching for bricks it now and you know has come into force and hungary and bans rough sleeping in public spaces and gives the police the authority to remove homeless people from the streets and get rid of their shelters what is this about sa there's a lot of there's a lot of people are happy about this well exactly i mean the first law that was passed in twenty thirteen happened where they said that being homeless became punishable with a fine that was just a few years ago but then earlier this year another law was introduced banning what the right wing government calls sleeping and living in public spaces a bit chilly and last week social affairs minister father told reporters that the
12:16 am
law is there to ensure homeless people off the streets at night. we are interrupting that to take you back to istanbul jamal what's going on. well elizabeth right now we have and i'm going to let the camera pan police turkish police have decided to come to the area where journalists have been camped for a long time they are cordoning off it seems the area we're not quite sure exactly why they're cordoning get off if they are trying to possibly maybe push the journalists back if this is just a proportion we think that allow for the turkish investigators to arrive it is very bizarre that suddenly this would happen considering that journalists have been here now for almost two weeks considering the huge amount of international attention and interest in the story of and what's this story has in terms of implications for so
12:17 am
many different aspects but the circuit police have arrived now they still haven't entered into. the consulate i just see now i'm going to ask the common man to come in here i'm just seeing now one of the diplomatic vehicles arrive possibly this is the consul general who has finally appeared i'm not sure who it is or it could possibly even be another saudi official. but there is definitely a lot of movement here elizabeth. unfortunately there is not a lot of information in terms of officials coming to explain to us what is happening so so this is the latest we have is that the turkish police of the sighted to come and. cordon off parts large parts of the area surrounding the consulates we've had a senior official in there been telling us my producer now it's telling me that
12:18 am
there are asking us to go outside of this green area there's a little green area that where we've been camped for a long time it is the closest part to the consulate and a boarding through my producer he's telling me that the police are saying that all journalists have to clear this area which would be extremely unfortunate if that is the case because it would be impossible for us to get a proper visual of people entering the consulate if indeed we are forced to vacate the area in front of us so we're looking now at pictures of vehicles arriving in this side of the consulate in istanbul in the saudi consulate in istanbul of course there was a very large media presence there jamal you have been standing outside that consulate i think pretty much since jamal khashoggi went missing on october second we got word
12:19 am
a few hours ago that the turkish that turkish investigators would finally after days nearly two weeks of waiting to be allowed into the consulate that they would be allowed in but now that you're being told that you have to move that you know the creation a larger cordon around the consulate did you have any idea when you told that this might happen. that's. not. we were not informed unfortunately as you know elizabeth there has been little to no statements being made officially by authorities here all the information we're getting is either from our sources who have been speaking on condition of anonymity or from local media publications and that what they've been given it would prove highly unfortunate for the calls of of transparency in particular considering that the person that has generated this interest is a journalist jamal khashoggi is it appears those who have. forced his disappearance
12:20 am
or assassinated him as the talks believe were doing so because of his writings and therefore in order to therefore excluding the media from being able to report on this trying to force cameras away from this scene particularly when we've seen so many consistencies and strange developments like the. like the if you could pan the camera just to the police making this cordon around us here like the arrival of the forensic a rather sorry the cleaning company. just hours before the turkish investigators arriving all of these strange developments require that there is more access for the media to be able to see what is taking place but unfortunately it doesn't seem like we will be afforded that with the way in which the police are currently operating benjamin could that mean the fact that journalists are being cleared that
12:21 am
this is now a crime scene or that turkish investigators. you know taking over this case this investigation. it was a crime scene in the moment. and went missing a little bit and according to what turkish officials have said both to also and to others they already know what's happened based on recordings that they. possesse suddenly realize that is a crime scene well that would then begs the question why were cleaners allowed in and why it's taken so long for them obviously they've explained that the reason why it's taken so long for them is because of their diplomatic channels and different magic processes that they went through that it's been dictated by the vienna convention or agreements and so forth however having said that right now what is the crime scene isn't the area outside the talks he was never disappeared in the small garden outside it is the consulate building here our access to the consulate
12:22 am
is imperative to understand who's going in who's coming out and possibly more importantly what is going in and what is going out so unfortunately now we're being pushed a bit more forcefully to leave the area. but like i say it is a strange development i'm not sure why it is i'm speculating here based on what the situation is but unfortunately we haven't been given any information why this place has been cordoned off why do journalists are being also leave and it is something that a lot of the journalists here will be very frustrated up because till now there has been that lack of transparency as to what's going on tomorrow we have been waiting for hours now for turkish investigations to enter the south consulate after hearing word that they've been given permission do we know when that's happening is this is this movement posh entrance. could possibly be the case i would assume based on the this this heavy movement
12:23 am
that this would be a precursor to. these turkish investigators arriving. it should be momentarily considering that we saw and i don't know if we've got these videos are we control of the saudi authorities arriving or officials or investigators arriving in around half an hour ago and they were meeting with his counterparts the. police headquarters and the idea was that they would either come together or shortly followed by each other. so so so we're not sure. we will come back to the or so i am hearing possibly that we will be allowed to come once the investigators go in and finish the work that is one of the work one of the things i'm hearing like i say this is all hearsay and there is no official statement being made and we will of course come back to you for any developments in this very fast moving story for now that is jamal and child live in istanbul let's
12:24 am
move on now one of the world's best known universities is being sued for discriminating against applicants who are asian american in the united states is denying the allegations but the result of the legal battle which is due to begin in boston could influence admissions to u.s. universities for years to come i did you know castro has more. it's tough to get into harvard fewer than five percent of students who apply are successful that is unless the applicant is asian american then it's even harder according to a lawsuit which accuses harvard intentionally discriminates against asian americans in order to keep their and roman numbers down if not most of them are marked down subjectively i have admission officers without ever meeting them harvard's internal admissions documents tell of a score system that according to the lawsuit penalizes asian americans in the
12:25 am
personality category though they tend to score higher in academic performance and extra curricular activities their personality score based on descriptors like likability and courageousness is lower than that of any other racial group the lawsuit accuses harvard of engaging in racial balancing resulting in more or less the same breakdown of racial groups year after year twenty per cent now the undergraduate body are asian americans we spoke to some of those students who said they support harvard's admissions practices it does suck if you think that. college admissions are on fair but i think for us fairness means a lot more like getting into college daniel lewis studying physics and philosophy at harvard the son of chinese immigrants he says harvard should further investigate the complaints of discrimination against asian americans but preserve that legally sanctioned practice of favoring black and hispanic applicants known as affirmative
12:26 am
action the plaintiffs really are just making a big mistake in completing. the constitutionality of affirmative action on the one hand with discrimination or potential legit discrimination against asian americans where the highway first whatever bloom a white conservative and founder of the anti affirmative action group students for fair admissions recruited the unnamed asian americans who are so. doing harvard he declined an interview with al-jazeera the debate has split the asian american community some accuse blum of using them as a tool to push his religion of helping white students while others say harvard is using affirmative action as a past to discriminate against asian americans they don't look at the reality that if you're going to do that are being discriminated against they just write you off meanwhile the trumpet ministration has jumped in to oppose harvard saying no american should be denied admission to school because of their race the
12:27 am
politicization of the case is further evidence for many asian americans that they are being used as a racial wedge the case is final outcome will likely be decided by the u.s. supreme court. castro al jazeera cambridge massachusetts. well let's get more on this now we're joined by bruce fein constitutional lawyer and former u.s. associate deputy attorney attorney general and he's joining us live from washington d.c. mr fine always a pleasure to have you with us on our ages they are so the trial is going to look at whether harvard has a bias against asian americans own internal investigation from twenty thirteen suggested that it's admission process was biased against asians is this because of racial bias alone within harvard or are they using it this process of marking down asian students on personality to keep numbers down or is it both.
12:28 am
well that's what the trial is about and i need to learn your audience i am a harvard graduate so there may be a conflict of interest but the reason why there's the trial is there's a dispute as to whether or not the intangible personality factor is being used to automatically depress asian american applicants who have very high hard test scores hard g p a's hard extra curricular activities that can't be denied in order to enable harvard to admit greater numbers of latino's or blacks or even whites i think that's why we're having the trial and they're experts that will examine the evidence and probably testify on both sides of the equation and we should know that asian americans historically in the united states have been very much discriminated against goes back to the early ninety's and hundreds and all the way through world war two when we had incarcerated without any proof of disloyalty one hundred twenty thousand asian americans so this isn't
12:29 am
a case where you're taking one group perhaps whites who in the past some allege have been benefited by discrimination and trying to make up for that advantage because asian americans have never been the recipients of anything beneficial whatsoever and you know it would be the conservative who is against affirmative action and brought the plaintiffs together is he here is that these students to further the has coals. you know against offenders have action when the two shouldn't be violation. well it's hard to separate out the two certainly at blome and i know his goal really is to end any affirmative action whatsoever he was the sponsor of the fisher case that got to the supreme court out of texas but i don't think that necessarily because he has an old tear motive it somehow spoils the general principle is at stake we fought for a very very long time to establish what we styled a colorblind constitution and that indeed was the motto of the early civil rights
12:30 am
movement and occur moving to affirmative action you're now are giving weight to race or gender that ought to be irrelevant to pure merit ability based upon character and accomplishments to succeed so i do think it's whether he has old here motives or not he can't force you know asian americans to be plaintiffs and that's a legitimate question whether or not we're focused on the individual and remember there's nothing that prevents giving a plus to someone who can show they individually were discriminated against as opposed to treating our society is made up of groups rather than individuals and giving group advantages even though individual members may have not suffered at all that's something that i think the united states will be coping with in the next several years it's an issue that. fluctuated in favor of affirmative action and against it in the u.s. supreme court over the last twenty years and it's very much in question now i will

say this that mr cavanaugh justice kavanah now replacing justice kennedy will not really change the balance on the high court which is typically been five to four in these cases justice kennedy voted invariably against these kinds of preferences even though on some cases he was in the minority so the court itself is situated the same way it was before the kava no appointment mr hahn thank you very much for your insights on this that is bruce fein joining us live from washington d.c. thank you. we're going to take a look now at some of the other stories making news around the world more on our top story first though and these are pictures of st andrews air base in maryland where u.s. secretary of state mike pompei is about to board the plane to leave for saudi arabia he is expected to do so any moment now to board that plane on his way to

12:37 am
let's read that again it basically says hello death so you can imagine that got a lot of people talking about it so this is a picture here that was also widely shared with us that they're explaining it they go where they've actually correct as it now so mostly people have been making fun of how big corporations can often get it wrong in fact a marketing failure when the languages they say don't mix well at all and that's what some people have been saying now with the new zealand or with new zealand rather having one of the highest rates of obesity in the developed world this person has tweeted to hear the same might just be the perfect reason to encourage people to reduce their sugar intake sinko coal is defense some did say that switching between languages has become so natural that it does make sense now it's still not clear whether the beverage company consulted with the maori community on the design of the slogan but one thing we know for sure is that it's not an

12:49 am
the program the biggest rebel group in syria's province ignores the deadline to withdraw its fighters from a planned the demilitarized zone plus. this is the try to cool calm heads to prevent. britain's prime minister says a break sit deal is still achievable despite the latest talks with the e.u. breaking down and the not enough fish in the sea why a one staple food has become a luxury that few can afford in senegal. welcome to the program in the next half hour a turkish investigation team is expected to be given access to the saudi consulate in istanbul saudi journalist was last seen entering the building nearly two weeks ago the area around the consulate has now been cordoned off in preparation for the search but earlier a group of cleaners were seen entering the building u.s.
12:50 am
president donald trump says he's spoken to saudi arabia's king solomon about ashaji and the king denied any knowledge of what happened to the missing journalist trump has now sent his secretary of state might pump a zero to saudi arabia to meet king salma. we are. going to leave nothing on covered with that being said. firmly denied any knowledge of it. didn't really know maybe i don't want to get it done but it sounded to me like a good road killers. were going to try getting to the bottom of a very what is the plot. we have correspondents standing by in istanbul and the white house to the skies this further let's start with. live for us in istanbul legible we are waiting for the turkish investigation team in the next half hour or so and in the past half hour there was a lot of movement outside the saudi consulate tell us
12:51 am
a little bit about what's going on there now and what preparations are like. a lot of confusion barbara ensued when suddenly we had several police officers descend on the area where journalists have been gathered for almost two weeks now as you mentioned and suddenly they cordoned off the area we weren't given an explanation of why unfortunately this lack of. explanation or lack of information that the it's been the case surrounding this case from the beginning does lead to confusion and therefore we were unsure why we were being forced out finally after speaking to several people we managed to understand that it is because the prosecutor general two of his immediate deputies are arriving and understandable here is that they are treated almost on a ministerial level in terms of the seniority and significance of them so the police say from a security perspective there needs to be this cordon between us and the consulates
12:52 am
from when they arrive but it's difficult to see how this plastic or didn't provide extra. of a buffer you know it's a protection from the metal barriers that are on the other side but that is the explanation we've been given assured that we would be allowed closer after that but there is a lot of questions that are being asked of these questions continue to actually increase like you mentioned there barbara we had suddenly these cleaners arrive with boxes load of what seemed to be bleach or other chemicals bottles bottles and bottles of them as well as all the other cleaning equipment which is very bizarre for that to happen when immediately before that's the saudis had finally announced they were going to allow the charge to go in and investigate if this is a crime scene if there is an investigation a genuine investigation taking place then these scenes these crime scenes should not be tampered with it's already drawing a lot of speculation from critics that the investigators will be allowed thirteen
12:53 am
days after. she went missing now after those thirteen days after so many people went in and out of sight from saudi officials you know have these key. coming did it is very difficult to on this what it is the tourist will be able to achieve by going into that building i mean yes that is the question obviously because obviously the turkish authorities have been trying to get an investigation team in if not straight after the disappearance pretty soon after at least a week ten days i mean i know that they're going in now and i suppose better late than never but just to further the point you were making i mean do turkish authorities themselves think that they're going to find anything. well i mean if they do they're not telling us and they have been very let's say they haven't been very generous in giving information at least on record all the information we've been able to achieve has either been from leaks or from those who spoken to me on condition of anonymity but look i mean according to u.s.
12:54 am
intelligence officials as well there is evidence at least of all your evidence and this was quoted not just by al-jazeera but also other media outlets including reuters the washington post the wall street journal and many many other outlets the result your evidence that the picture exactly what happened to john. and that's evidence allegedly shows that he was murdered could it be that the turks know something is hidden somewhere something that couldn't be taken out or could it be that they want to cover all their bases and show that they have done a complete investigation or maybe they want to show that things have been tampered with and therefore that would increase the pressure on the saudis all speculation because that's all we are allowed to do right now because of the lack of information coming from the turks or the saudis as you mentioned the turks have asked right after what's happened to be allowed in iran has been the saudis who have rejected from the beginning the only some responsibility is on the saudis because the turks have proven jamal and should via video evidence the saudis have
12:55 am
failed to prove that jamal exited and therefore ultimately the ball is firmly in the saudi arabia's chords but as mentioned by you know throughout there are so many other intricate. other kind of side issues that will play into this from the bilateral relations between ankara and riyadh to the economic issues to oil and gas to trump's relationship with prince mohammed bin solomon all of these unfortunately are probably going to play a greater role in the outcome of this investigation than the actual criminal logical report work that is meant to be going down. well tomorrow we are expecting the turkish investigation team to arrive in the next half hour so we will of course cross live to you again to get the latest on that when it happens for the moment thank you and now let's go to the u.s. cents peter white house correspondent kimberly how he joins us live from washington d.c. so while the investigation is going on or guess beginning in the ball itself
12:56 am
meanwhile the u.s. president making links speaking to king sound man and apparently seeming to believe king solomon's the nile's of knowing anything about the disappearance. well he's certainly giving him the benefit of the doubt that is what the president said as he was leaving to board marine one here on the south lawn of the white house in the last couple of hours that he had just spoken to the king and that he found that his statements were particularly credible he also said that his u.s. secretary of state pompei o was headed to go speak directly with the king and we can now confirm that that is a flight that is now airborne the pompei o did board that air force to fly to head to the region and in fact we know that he will not only be going to saudi arabia but u.s. president donald trump saying that in fact he could also go to other places to presumably turkey so there is this sense that the u.s. president wants to get to the bottom of this he wants to get information but at the
12:57 am
same time his comments were very notable barbara because just twenty four hours ago we were playing clips of an interview where the president said that he felt that there would be serious consequences if in fact it was found that saudi arabia was behind the disappearance and death of the missing journalist but it seemed in the last couple of hours the president seemed to back off on those comments a little bit trying to introduce perhaps what he called rogue killers that may be responsible sensually saying that he believed the claims of the king that in fact he had no understanding or knowledge of what happened to the missing journalists and in fact the president seemed to be giving him the benefit of the doubt it was a very stark dialing back of comments from what we heard on sunday because of course saudi arabia isn't just key to the u.s. when it comes to the foreign policy in the middle east but also financially speaking it's a great ally and a great client and the president tom has made no secret of how reluctant he would
12:58 am
be to harm that financial economic relationship in any way. absolutely and this is something that has really angered even members of his own republican party on capitol hill we saw a very strong statements last week coming out of not just democratic senators particularly but also republican senators who felt that this could be a pivotal turning point tipping point even if you will in the u.s. saudi relationship there is so much at stake but it seems that the u.s. senators are willing to put that on the line to hold saudi arabia accountable if that is the conclusion of the investigation it certainly appears for now that that is the case that it had a hand in the disappearance. so in this is something that is there is a lot in terms of money as you point out and also the broader relationship for two reasons why donald trump may be dialing back those comments we have that pivotal potentially election congressional election for control of congress coming up early
12:59 am
next month this is one that donald trump is advocated strongly for a strong economy he wants to keep it that way before americans go to the polls and if we see a rise in the price of oil as many suspect could happen if saudi arabia is tries to retaliate in any way to any sort of us or global action in terms of sanctions this could mean a rise or spike in the price of gasoline and would affect consumers and that would be bad for republicans and also the issue of arms sales because that is a big job generator in this country and we know there are hundreds of billions of dollars in sales over the next ten years in terms of arms the united states making those arms selling them to saudi arabia that means an awful lot of jobs here in the united states of donald trump wants to keep that he said as we heard from him in the oval office last week he doesn't want those jobs in those sales going to russia or china but again this is a president who is thinking about the broader picture when many in congress and
1:00 am
increasingly the image ordinary americans are feeling that there may be a need to this time hold saudi arabia accountable if indeed that is what the conclusions are of the investigation that is of course still ongoing we have with the latest from the white house can really thank you. the largest armed group in syria's rebel held igloo province is yet to withdraw its fighters from the region despite the monday deadline set by turkey and russia but hey at. h.t.s. has signaled it will comply with the it live agreement which was signed last month it establishes a demilitarized there ia around the northwestern region surrounding it live province the zone was supposed to be cleared of heavy weapons by october tenth and rebel fighters by monday send a hold of reports now from neighboring lebanon. a de villota rise zone is being created around syria as it lives province
1:01 am
a twenty kilometer deep strip of territory is now free of heavy weapons by october fifteenth it should have also been free of fighters considered terrorists by the international community the so-called radical groups didn't pull back but hours before the deadline. the largest military alliance that controls much of the buffer area and the rest of the province signaled that it will comply in its statement. said it appreciated efforts by those inside and outside which is believed to be a reference to turkey to prevent an invasion and wide scale killing it also made reference to the foreign fighters saying we won't forget to the group maybe trying to keep unity and prevent betrayal among its ranks that is why an explicit acceptance of the deal would worsen divisions or rejection would risk a military confrontation with turkey which has said it is ready to use force against those who do not comply to hit
1:02 am
a sham quietly met the deadline to withdraw heavy weapons from his own last week it's not the first time the group has shown pragmatism the buffer zone deal does not call for a surrender or reconciliation with the syrian government it created a new front line that protects regime strongholds and russian military assets that many syrians of the rebel controlled province remain skeptical. one million of all we all know that you know what are they moved the heavy weapons back sometime kilometers or so but i don't support this it just makes it easier for the regime and russia to advance into a loop you cannot trust the regime and russia. yeah. this is all a game the aim is to cause division among rebel ranks that will lead to infighting that way it becomes easier for the regime to take the area everyone is lying to us . the syrian government has repeatedly said it liberal eventually return to state control but russia and turkey have so far been the decision makers the deals
1:03 am
sponsors need each other in the post-war phase but i think it serves the interests of both parties so this is why i believe that this agreement will hold for the time being and the turks will be giving more time in order to try to deconstruct the whole complexity of this situation inside it live for the next few weeks and months a few days ago that it could accept a brief delay if it meant the spirit of the agreement was still upheld the deadline was missed but syria's main power brokers seem committed to keeping the deal alive . beirut israeli forces have shot dead a palestinian man who they say tried to stab one of their soldiers it happened near the legal israeli settlement of ariel close to the palestinian city of self it in the occupied west bank israeli army says none of its soldiers sustained injuries in the attack the palestinian man is believed to be a resident of b dhea the home village of
1:04 am
a woman who died on friday after rocks were thrown at her car by israeli settlers. and israeli forces a fire tear gas and rubber bullets into a school in the occupied west bank thousands of students and school officials at al so we a school needed medical treatment after inhaling tear gas and being hit by tear gas canisters they were attempting to stop the school's closure which was ordered by the israeli army the army accuse a students of throwing stones at people on the roads. so to come in this half hour troubling times for german chancellor angela merkel after her coalition partners suffer a humiliating defeat in the very election and the italian luxury cars a sparking calls for a general strike in upon you kitty. hello
1:05 am
there the rain is trying to clear away from parts of china now being pretty wet over the past few days but now as we head through the next couple of days the rain will slow retreat its way southward still some with this is we head through tuesday their own pushing as far north as the chengdu region and then gradually retreating for wednesday so more of this in the north of our map that will see more dry weather the rain though will still cling on to the southern parts for now and work its way into the northern parts of vietnam say still staying rather wait here out towards the west and the monsoon is fairly subdued for many of us here we're seeing the shop showers just in the southwest and in the eastern parts but elsewhere to the north it's largely fine and dry so more showers here as we head through the next couple of days also more in sri lanka but head further north and there's more dry weather to be found so fairly warm for see new delhi thirty three will be our maximum there will be a good deal of cloud at times and maybe more of a wind as well towards the far northern parts of our more in the way of cloud here
1:06 am
and snow that we edging its way eastwards every parts of afghanistan and into the phone all the parts of india through pakistan as well that gradually case there as we head into wednesday for the arabian peninsula this blob of cloud here is what's left of our cyclic it's disintegrating now but is still giving us some fairly sharp showers as it works its way into the southern parts of saudi. and let's take you straight to istanbul now where we are seeing at the turkish investigation team heading to the saudi consulate there now they are going in to investigate of course what happened when jamal khashoggi saudi journalist went missing on the october the second our correspondent. to the saudi consulate now jamaluddin if you can hear me what can you see where you are. i can't so we have
1:07 am
a large police van followed by one two three four different. vehicles but i'm going to. understand that this includes two of the turkish prosecutor general deputies they will be leading this investigation there are several police officers who are coming out of the vehicles i don't think i'm a consume in through the. because we have been moved a bit further away there now gathering outside obviously this is something we have been waiting for for a very long time to see because it starts had been requesting now for almost two weeks and then initially there was this alleged approval that was given by prince mohamed bin hammam man during that interview he made to one of the outlets just a couple of days or three or four days rather after she went missing the turks said actually that wasn't real approval of the saudis were simply saying that some type
1:08 am
of shoe authorities could enter but only be shown around. to what the saudis wanted to show them now we understand that. they have been given approval to enter with the. together with saudi officials investigators now those saudi investigators barbara they've arrived a couple hours ago and said the consulate building that was after they met with their turkish counterparts stumbles police headquarters prior to that what was bizarre for many watching this you had a cleaning company arrive with a lot of equipment a lot of what appeared to be bleach bottles or other chemical liquids and touring which obviously is something that is extremely peculiar considering this is meant to be viewed as a crime scene finally now we're talking about almost fourteen days. since she
1:09 am
answered not to be seen after that the turkish investigators have arrived your viewers are seeing now this van that's has. what we understand some of the investigation equipment that's being offloaded slowly by the police and security officials seem that has arrived barbara like i say is headed by the. prosecutor general two of his deputies it is meant to be a high profile team that includes forensics as you can see now they are entering into the consulate building this is really aside from a major development barbara in that case it is something very significant if we take into consideration the context of diplomatic missions and how they are or they enjoy immunity and around the world the world over based on this vienna agreement that we've reference so many times in this in our coverage whereby if the
1:10 am
diplomatic missions of countries in foreign nations they cannot be answered by police or authorities of the local country without the elicits approval or without the explicit rather prove all of the. diplomatic missions home country obviously this has happened now very rarely does this occur and that's why the talks didn't want to storm this place there is protocol there is international agreements that prevent them from answering it took a long time for them to get this approval they now have this approval you are viewing these. investigators police officials as well as people from as i say the prosecutor general's office answering now we're not sure exactly how many but you can see i would say at least maybe a dozen if not more. in terms of the actual crippen they have we're not sure again unfortunately we've been forced to kind of like go off drip feed of information that comes from i were on. sure sister speak to us on condition of anonymity but
1:11 am
also of other. other leaks that come from the local media as role so this is the current situation right now barbara. and jamal i can see a life here of morse and it does look from the shot that we're seeing the most of the investigators are now in and as you say at least the at least that doesn't mean is you were saying. let's try and rectify that ok i think jamal has lost last audio as. i was telling us though we have seen the investigators go in obviously a very high profile investigation led by two of the old prosecutor general's deputies they will be leading the investigation of course going into the saudi consulate. two weeks
1:12 am
a little over since the disappearance of jamal khashoggi. correspondent is outside the consul will go back to him in just a second as we keep on watching this these live pictures coming to us from istanbul for the moment though let's cross to our tomorrow one bashara who is here with me in the studio i mean obviously they are finally in the turkish investigators are in the saudis are in already obviously and investigating team there as well is there any point to doing it now two weeks later when we've had the slightly if i can say comical scene of cleaners going in well actually there's probably a good number of objectives here one is that this should have been done from the beginning late is but there's a number that's one to. clearly that the saudis and the turks have agreed on the rules of engagement in this investigation if you will there was a team that came from saudi arabia to un khurana istanbul in order to agree about
1:13 am
on the guidelines what do we do how do you investigate what are the limits and then how do we reveal our conclusions of this investigation and i think at this point in time and this is what's important this is not just a crime scene this is an international crime scene this is the nucleus of over an event that happened less than two weeks ago that has brought the entire world attention the american president the the u.k. prime minister european leaders international leaders in fact even middle eastern leaders have weighed in some of them unfortunately on the side of saudi arabia as if saudi arabia is a victim here but be that as it may now we are in the midst of a true mystery and the mystery is getting resolved there by day and not only its local pieces meaning the actual crime but who's behind the crime and one of the
1:14 am
objectives behind this investigation could be and i say could be and we've heard a bit of that for our correspondent in washington alluding to the fact that this could have been done plus as they say in french that this is more of a thing done by a rogue elements on the scene not something that been ordered by higher ups and and investigating that was it an accident was it something unintended or without the unintended consequences and sponsor for x. that's exactly the phrase of donald trump use that maybe this could have been a rogue kilis we interesting to see where that goes mostly stay with us in the studio just want to i want to go back at you is the malays think we have the connection again with jamal legible it looks to me looking at the video that i'm seeing that all the investigators are now in now we've been so. saying it again again it's two weeks after the disappearance more or less i know it's difficult to get information we've been getting dribs and drabs but from what you've been hearing what are the turkish investigators hoping to achieve by going in.
1:15 am
well i mean we've been forced to deduce based on the information we have and our experience covering turkey extensively over the past few years barbara i can tell you that the main van that came in it is the usual van that you would have that would lead to crime scene investigations the fact that it is there are shows that he would have on board with forensic experts as well as other people who are kind of forefront of criminology here and deducing exactly specific things like murder investigations and so forth the vehicles as i mentioned behind government vehicles that are linked either to the judiciary of high profile people or ministers and members of parliament that obviously based on the information we have two deputies of the prosecutor general so that gives you an idea of just how serious it is a from one perspective the weights that the turkish authorities are putting that they're not sending just
1:16 am
a lead investigator or detective through this you're talking about two of the deputies of the prosecutor general's office the prosecutor general being somebody who could actually indict the president so very significant indeed aside from that obviously as i mentioned the police and forensics experts that are there yes that's all well and good when you look at it but obviously as you mentioned there you're talking about almost two weeks since it happened you're talking about after cleaning companies entering you're talking about throughout the past. two weeks what we've been reporting here we've been seeing saudi embassy officials coming in and out as they please you know without anybody checking them and so forth so all of this will draw skepticism from those who believe us. talking about that maybe what has been taking place or what has been taken out of the forefront of these coordinated. between saudi arabia and turkey has been more about looking for a way out of this and how they would agree on to move things forward politically considering as we've been mentioning that the saudi delegation first arrived in ankara the political capital not in istanbul considering the makeup of the saudi
1:17 am
delegation which was headed by king solomon's chief advisor all of that has drawn skepticism i did too it's the silence at least official silence by the turks in terms of making clear what evidence they have on the other side the types will say well this is still an investigation they don't want to get give all the evidence they have so as not to affect how things will go they will point to the fact that there are diplomatic ramifications to to this very eloquently described there it is an international crime scene not just a local one this does have huge ramifications across the globe in terms of the economies markets and not least the geo political situation in the middle east which is unstable to put it mildly so all of that is playing in to this investigation but again let's not forget beyond all of this this is a human story of a journalist who went to that building almost fourteen days ago simply to get paperwork so he could get married and never has been seen again and not human story
1:18 am
does is really there is a risk that it gets lost amongst all of the kind of politics around it but it is something that it is important to remind our viewers about that in the end of the day jamal khashoggi was. as you say he was not a criminal wanted by anybody he was not. even wanted by the saudi authorities he was a journalist who entered to conduct some paperwork never to be seen again it is indeed a very good point jamal and always worth remembering him on a shelf for the moment we're going to leave it there but of course we'll cross life to you again more analysis as soon as we get any developments out of the saudi consulate maybe you know some kind of result of a national investigation and i want to share is still with us in the studio and. mentioned that in a way as much as looking for answers the turks and the saudis may be looking for a way out of what has become a massive international story a massive international crisis for all the countries involved what you make of that
1:19 am
exactly and you see because we are dealing with an international crime scene the actors here are states they are state actors now we're not talking about individuals that's that's behind us this has become an interstate affair and one of one of the aspects for it is a clash of the wills between saudi arabia and turkey and that's been going on now for eleven days so he's held their ground even they want to end the war on the on the offensive yesterday and they did for us but clearly this scene today now this afternoon shows that that the saudis have lost that battle meaning on the idea that they allow a hosting nation turkey to go into their sovereign territory the consulates in istanbul to envisage to get a crime that means they have given in to the turks on the question that turkey has a right now to resolve this mystery because the saudis are not providing the answers it is just at
1:20 am
a level of sort of diplomacy moving away from this particular case i mean letting in the police into a concert into an embassy is a big deal diplomat. it's a huge deal especially when it went to four countries like saudi arabia and others who consider this almost sacred for the kingdom the kingdom of saudi arabia to allow what for ten years now at least three years was a hostile power i mean let's all remember that mohamed was so mad the crown prince of saudi arabia cold turkey. part of the evil triangle along with iran of the muslim brotherhood says that this were not friendly relations between the crown prince and the turks for the turks not to go into the consulate with such as you call that see yet tricks to go in and investigate that certainly a win for turkey or a we're just going to go ahead to the white house to get the latest there but now we have my pump ale heading to saudi arabia of course the u.s. secretary of state what do you make of that visit i mean that's going to be an awkward conversation especially because we know that regardless of what comes out
1:21 am
of this investigation into jamal khashoggi president trump is incredibly reluctant to harm us saudi relations. you can have to give me a bit of a leeway here meaning. there are possible scenarios now because we are not just discussing a very rational. conventional predictable think because we just had a major crime scene international crime been committed and so on so forth and all the countries in the world are interested the saudi economy is beginning to collapse and so on so forth. i would say the following one i think probably president trump. perhaps as our reporter says he's giving the king solomon the but it's the doubt but i'm sure people around him the cia the intelligence and so on so far they're saying look we don't know if king solomon is a free man at this point in time we don't know if the crown prince is on the phone call or not we don't know if king solomon is actually the effective leader of saudi
1:22 am
arabia after the crown prince have basically been been tasked with the military the economy the intelligence or oil and the religious establishment the crown prince and an inexperienced overconfident underqualified young man has been basically tasked with all the authorities of the kingdom and he's been doing that for almost two three years so does really the king have an authority over his son when president trump speaks to him is the king expressing his will he could have been actually very honest saying i actually don't know anything about what happened in turkey because he was not the day to day manager of the affairs of the country and certainly not of the intelligence and when we heard about two planes heading to istanbul the day that germany has entered the consulate we know that this is a this is now the affair of the intelligence who's there rectally in charge of the
1:23 am
intelligence crown prince mohammed and so man so in a sense we have a man who is very confident and in charge in riyadh today and i think secretary pump aoe has to go to riyadh to know on the ground who's in charge who is america talking to who is america's interlocutor today in saudi arabia is it the crown prince or is the king and what if the crown prince's responsibility has been proven for the mess in istanbul would something happen to him then with his step aside when he stepped down. nothing unthinkable anymore thank you and now let's go to the white house to speak to a correspondent kimberly how can she joins us live now so we're just hearing marwan saying i guess my pompei are going there too to figure out who he's talking to perhaps who's in charge but from the u.s. point of view beyond the administration how much pressure is there on the u.s. you know from the democrats the republicans of people outside the white house to
1:24 am
get to the bottom of this and try to understand i mean the bottom line i guess the question i'm asking is how much do americans care about this. americans certainly do care about this and they certainly will hold their members of congress accountable if they don't press this in a manner in which they think that needs to be pressed i want to just follow up on something marwan said you know the take away here at the white house with regard to president trump's comments that he believes the king's very firm denials. maybe on a example of the president parsing his language because he constantly kept talking about the king denying that he had any knowledge about the whereabouts of the missing journalist or what happened to him but the president wasn't forceful in saying the crown prince mohammed bin solomon was the one in fact of the telephone call was with the king so it does give the crown prince who we know has been giving
1:25 am
a lot of the orders as marwan said the plausible deniability and so i think there is this sense here in washington and the american public at large who is also watching this playing out in real time going hey wait a second if you think you're fooling us with this language you're not and yeah we get that there is a lot at stake here in terms of the economic relationship in terms of jobs but at the same time ordinary americans don't want to be played a fool and there is this sense in washington particularly on capitol hill the president sort of choice of words in trying to preserve this partnership that has been longstanding between the united states and saudi arabia for decades may not be one that the ordinary americans support so there is this very delicate dance going on right now the president kind of trying to play both sides especially as we head up to
1:26 am
a pivotal election thinking about that voted how americans are casting it and perhaps wanted to protect jobs wanting to keep the gas prices low but at the same time his calculation because many people are. finding it harder and harder to believe may have some blowback for the president and into unintended consequence a few well can really help it with the latest from the white house kimberly thank you and of course al-jazeera will be following the story as we have been since october second but we following very closely and bring you the very latest from that investigation going on right now turkish investigators into the saudi consulate went in about ten fifteen minutes ago we'll bring you the latest developments here for the most of the hour taking a quick break still ahead in this hour flash floods in france killed least ten people after storms and drops several months of rain in just a few out. when

1:28 am
a reminder of the top story here on al-jazeera a turkish investigation team has finally entered the saudi consulate in istanbul or journalist jamal khashoggi went missing almost two weeks ago u.s. president on trump says he's spoken to saudi king sound man who flatly denied knowing anything about what happened he has shockey. and britain's prime minister says she still believes a breaks a deal is possible the reason may has been addressing parliament after the latest talks on the u.k.'s withdrawal from the european union failed a meeting of twenty seven e.u. ambassadors on sunday had sparked optimism about the agreement the sticking points
1:29 am
being the border between ireland and northern ireland may says that even though there has been progress on working out a plan there's more work to do. we agree that our future economic partnership should provide for solutions to the unique circumstances in northern ireland in the long term and while we are both committed to ensuring that this future relationship is in place by the end of the implementation period we accept that there is a chance that the may be a gap between the two this is what creates the need for a backstop to ensure that if such a temporary gap were ever to arise there would be no hard border between northern ireland a doll and or indeed anything that would threaten the integrity of our precious union. well both the republic of ireland the northern ireland are part of the european union and trade freely flows across the border but brecht's it means that northern ireland which is part of the united kingdom will leave the e.u. with bracks it british and the leaders both want to avoid
1:30 am
a so-called hard to border with customs checks on exports the big question is how to do that it's become such a crunch point the negotiations are now revolving around a fallback plan for the border if a break said the old cannot be reached the so-called backstop plan would allow business to continue across the border without customs checks among the arguments is how any backstop should be applied and crucially for how long but since prime minister wants a time limit in any deal with the e.u. to apply the whole to it to the whole of the u.k. the e.u. meanwhile wants the backstop in place for as long as it takes to reach a wider breaks a deal and for it to apply only to northern ireland in the meantime to resume a is facing criticism from all sides within her conservative government to accept or scrap each proposal well for this son joined in the studio by a correspondent jonah hall who's been following all developments on this i mean it's bad enough trying to negotiate a break said the old with the e.u. and the member states but really it does seem that her bigger problem is right here
1:31 am
at home well let me start by saying i mean this is a remarkable sort of break of calm in the e.u. about this officials within the european union hierarchy saying look we don't consider this to be the end of the world it's not too dramatic will give the british as much time as they need a deal is far preferable to no deal so they're not pressing the panic buttons just yet but yes as you say the real problem is agreeing on the basis of a deal here among her own cabinet the reason most coveted within her own party the labor party the opposition is split parliament is split all of these bodies are split along completely different lines in many cases and competing lines over the issue of brigadier. it's all about the backstop the irish border whether it's to include the whole of the u.k. inside the customs union while trade talks go on or whether it is just to be northern ireland if it's the whole of the u.k. as she would like well then her pro briggs it factions say that precludes us from
1:32 am
doing our own trade deals so we can have that if it's to be northern ireland the d.c.u. pretty crucial to propping up her minority government with their ten m.p.'s say we're out we won't support you anymore so whichever way she turns she's got almost existential problems to deal with in terms of her own governance and that's as you say long before she starts talking in earnest to the e.u. and just remind us why this issue of the border between island the northern ireland which of course will be affected by any kind of you know u.k. pull out front from the e.u. why it's so sensitive more than any other what i mean it's the basis of what's known as the belfast agreement the good friday agreement that ended years of fighting on the island of ireland between the republic of ireland and separatist factions with the north which of course is a british territory and the basis of that deal was that they would no never be again a hard border separating those two portions of the are that that is something that both the e.u. and the u.k. consider sacrosanct they both agree that this border must not be allowed to exist
1:33 am
and it will not exist once a firm trade relationship is agreed and settled between the e.u. and the u.k. that everybody is happy with they'll be no need for a border it is the question of the time between now and then in which this border issue has to be guaranteed which the backstop has to operate it is a question of how to achieve that backstop and that's where they're all stuck and if i'm not wrong more than our lection who voted against rex in the referendum then they are all in all the wrong answer it makes it interesting jonah how thank you very much it certainly is complicated thank you for explaining it to us. now german chancellor angela merkel's grip on power is slipping after her coalition allies suffered heavy losses in the bavarian regional elections. the c.s.u. that's the sister party of merkel's c.d.u. slum to to its worst results in almost seventy years the social democrats also saw their support have the as the greens made massive gains from the bavarian capital
1:34 am
munich dominic as for monday in munich and at c.s.u. headquarters it was time to take stock sunday's election saw them losing half a million votes and their sole grip on power as of the next summer and yesterday was a painful day we lost several direct mandates which hurts. the scale of the c.s. sousa lecture will set back is no sinking in and one statistic really stands out that in virtually all of the various major cities it was beaten by the centrist green party they had built their campaign around multiculturalism and tolerance stressing the need for bavaria to throw off the shackles of one party domination there by sending a message to the rest of the country this is next election result that is like a tectonic you know movement so obviously it's will not end at the borders of. the aftershocks have already reached berlin angela merkel is now under pressure almost
1:35 am
as never before her two federal coalition partners the c.s.u. of the social democrats were humiliated in sunday's election many people now wonder openly how much longer she and they can survive in office the most and i thought them would click off the fiddle and looking back on our way from the government and the last twelve months we have to accept that we have lost a lot of trust and so my lesson from this is that i asked chancellor must make sure that trust as one back and that people can actually see the results of our work and i will do this whether as much bigger as i can she has little time to lose at the end of this month her c.d.u. party will be fighting another regional election in the western state of has. polls suggest that they have their work cut out to stay in power dominic came with al-jazeera in bavaria at least ten people have died and thousands more have been evacuated after flash flooding in southwest france overnight the province old was

right. saudi and turkish officials begin a joint investigation inside the kingdom's consulate and. as the u.s. secretary of state heads to riyadh on donald trump what is.
1:49 am
rocking to al-jazeera life for my headquarters in doha with me and is the problem also ahead uncertainty around a deal that was supposed to see a key armed group withdraw from syria's last rebel held province. this is the time for calm heads to prevail. and britain's prime minister says the brics the deal is still achievable despite the latest talks with the e.u. breaking down. the investigation into the disappearance of jamal khashoggi is picking up pace off to days of stalling and a seeming lack of progress there have been a number of new developments on monday would then the last hour childish investigators entered the cell the consulate in istanbul it's been thirteen days since bush was last seen there the kingdom agreed to this extraordinary break with diplomatic norms after days of steadily growing international pressure at around
1:50 am
the same time u.s. secretary of state mike pompei aboard the plane for geog where he'll meet with king salam pompei is also expected to travel to turkey a few hours earlier president trump told reporters that he had spoken to king salim on he says the king strongly denied any involvement in g.'s disappearance we've got reporters across all the latest developments will go to complete in washington d.c. with reaction from the trumpet administration but first let's go straight to istanbul is joining us from there so what have you been seeing over the last hour jim on. well elizabeth i mean after several days of some should being camped out here all these press have been waiting to see any sort of developments today so a lot of twists and turns and movements in this quote unquote an investigation and if it could be even cold does the fact that you're talking about police finally answering almost fourteen days off to somebody went missing is already drawing
1:51 am
skepticism and questions from observers in the media alike but earlier we saw the first development does take this chronologically first we heard that the saudis had finally allowed for this harks to enter the mom's or quest that they've been made by ankara ever since among social she went missing finally that's was approved already on monday minutes off that we saw the cleaning company arrive with boxes of leach and other cleaning they entered the building behind us which seems bizarre to say the least a few hours off the vans we saw the saudi considerations of the joint committee that's meant to be investigated investigating the disappearance of the model t. arriving not joins me with the turks but actually on their own and they spent several hours on their own inside the consulate before the turkish delegation finally arrived and that we saw a big investor criminal investigation by and usually used in murder scenes and other serious crimes arriving followed by several government vehicles which
1:52 am
included also deputies from the prosecutor general's office a senior figure here in the charters faithful those are the main developments that took place on monday obviously lots of questions being asked what kind of information will the checks be able to get out of searching the building behind us when thirteen days have gone by the saudis have come and gone as they please throughout the time cleaning company has come all this time has passed questions of whether the investigation the investigators would also be allowed to search the saudi consul general's whole. where we saw the black south mercedes run drive and park up to the basements and there was a lot of speculation as to what it was doing there so many questions being asked unfortunately not a lot of answers coming from news of the saudi side or from the turkish side jamal do we know the turkish investigating team at least we know who it's made up of.
1:53 am
was i mentioned it is it is being had by headed by the. prosecutor general's office on the ground it is being headed by two of his deputies the rar several police investigators we sold just in their police gear we did see their. equipment being offloaded from their vehicles and taken into the building let me tell you this building is a seven story building it is a large compound maybe difficult to see because of obviously the fence in the barriers we are seeing now some of those. i'm going to see if the government can zoom in some of those officers coming out they're going to choose a van maybe to offload some more gear or get some more equipment and bring it out so it does seem that there is at least visually speaking what appears to be a well equipped investigation scene but it is this work i'm sponsors not the
1:54 am
qualifications that are being brought into question so the circumstances in terms of how much time has elapsed the access that the saudi officials have been given considering they are the main suspects for the new suspect in this investigation as well as the other hampering whether functional intentional rather or unintentional but there has been some sort of tampering what is an active international crime scene jamal thank you very much for that for now that is jamal and shall with all the latest live outside of the south the conflict and istanbul let's go to washington d.c. committee halkett is joining us from there and secretary of state mike palm pilot on his way to the saudi capital company the spice donald trump saying that he's had very strong denials from king some on. that's right the president saying that he has sent his secretary of state might pump air to meet with the saudi king but notably what he didn't say is that he would not be meeting with the

crown prince mohammed bin solomon and this is sort of come into question the fact that the president repeatedly said he's had very strong denials that saudi arabia knew anything about the missing journalists disappearance or is behind it anyway because he had a conversation with only the saudi king but we all know that it is the crown prince that as of recent years has been the one calling many of these decisions and it's very notable that the president says he did not have a conversation with the crown prince and so far from what we know from donald trump himself as he left the white house early this morning here in washington is that that meeting with his secretary of state is with the king this allows saudi arabia to have classical deniability that it does not know anything or did not play a role this is really going to be problematic for the president because there are certainly many washing of the takeaway here at the white house was that the
1:56 am
president was essentially parsing his language and that could be a problem for the president as we have very important elections coming up early next month for control of congress because while the president seems to be trying to play it safe trying to preserve the u.s. saudi relationship that could blow back on him in terms of american reaction americans not taking kindly to their president essentially being played a fool if you will in terms of trying to preserve the relationship and perhaps being taken advantage of in the process. increasingly alone and has stalin's on saudi arabia the support for their denial in the disappearance you know and given that congress senators and congress and now using the magnitsky act to investigate the disappearance and the calling for action possibly even sanctions against saudi arabia that's right and certainly i think i forgot to add that outs
1:57 am
or throw a bit of tape about that donald trump saw it so let's take a listen to what the president had to say in terms of that sound on tape when i was talking about that conversation there was a very firm denial by the president as he relayed this to the reporters about the conversation that he had with the saudi king take a listen i did only tell you that is that are owed to me. there's one very you know relatively very old gold probably less than one of the mothers that i owed to me that got a bit stronger that he had no knowledge that it sounded like he has also the ground for it had no dollar. donald trump talking about his conversation with the king solomon and as you were saying earlier kimberly has spoken to king solomon not the crown prince mohammed bin salon who for all intents and purposes is the ruler of saudi arabia but mohamed bin salon did speak to members of the trumpet ministration a few days ago. yeah that's right and you remember some of the reporting
1:58 am
earlier this year a few months back where there was some pushback here in the united states about the relationship between the president's son a larger cushion or who is a white house aide there were some reporting that mohamed bin selman the crown prince in fact had been boasting about having gerrard cushion or in the palm of his aunt and that certainly didn't play well with ordinary americans the fact that. been having these kind of back channel conversations outside of sort of the regular security protocol certainly angered many here in the intelligence community who keep a close eye on those things so all of this is not looking good for donald trump break now the fact that ordinary americans are watching this very carefully they're watching this white house looking very much beholden to saudi arabia the fact that the president had his first foreign trip there the fact that there are these very very big arms deals back and forth and the fact that right now there is this concern too about the rising price of gas at the gasoline pumps with the rise of
1:59 am
oil if there is a rise in price in the barrel of oil in terms of retaliation from saudi arabia all of this is playing on the president's mind he's trying to preserve all of this in advance of these congressional elections but again it may blow back on him because americans not liking the fact that they see their white house man that they've elected to the white house potentially answering to someone other than ordinary americans committee thank you very much for that phenomena the committee how could all the latest live and washington d.c. thank you we want to remind our viewers about the man at the center of all of this jamal khashoggi the saudi journalist was once close to that in a circles off the saudi royal family and his reputation as a reformist by pushing boundaries and question and government policies in two thousand and three became media advisor to prince turki been pfizer the prince headed something arabia's intelligence service the nation's disinvestment to the u.s. last year he went into self-imposed exile in the u.s.
2:00 am
often becoming concerned about the actions of conference mohamed bin some on you toned down just you and manage that he left the kingdom because he didn't want to be arrested. as they want to some of the day's other news now the largest group in syria is a rebel held province is yet to withdraw its fighters from the region despite a deadline set by turkey and russia high at thirty dollars shower h.t.s. has not previously said whether it accepts or rejects the terms of the source he agreement signed last month the deal set a deadline of monday for rebel groups to withdraw all fighters from inside in the countries in the feast well the agreement set up a demilitarize area around the northwestern region surrounding the province this on was meant to be cleared of heavy weapons by october tenth and of rebel fighters by monday they know how the reports from neighboring lebanon. a de villota rise zone
2:01 am
is being created around syria's live province a twenty kilometer deep strip of territory is now free of heavy weapons by october fifteenth it should have also been free of fighters considered terrorists by the international community the so-called radical groups didn't pull back but hours before the deadline. the largest military alliance that controls much of the buffer area and the rest of the province signaled that it will comply in its statement but said it appreciated efforts by those inside and outside which is believed to be a reference to turkey to prevent an invasion and wide scale killing it also made reference to the foreign fighters saying we won't forget to the group maybe trying to keep unity and prevent betrayal among its ranks that is why an explicit acceptance of the deal would worsen divisions or rejection would risk a military confrontation with turkey which has said it is ready to use force
2:02 am
against those who do not comply. quietly met the deadline to withdraw heavy weapons from his own last week it's not the first time the group has shown pragmatism the buffer zone deal does not call for a surreal. reconciliation with the syrian government it created a new front line that protects regime strongholds and russian military assets that many syrians of the rebel controlled province remain skeptical. one million homes. that you know what they moved the heavy weapons back sometime kilometers or so but i don't support this it just makes it easier for the regime and russia to advance into a loop you cannot trust the regime and russia. this is all a game the aim is to cause division among rebel ranks that will lead to infighting that way it becomes easier for the regime to take the area everyone is lying to us the syrian government has repeatedly said it lip will eventually return to state control but russia and turkey have so far been the decision makers the deals

up to my waist in water. that's very heavy precipitation in the region during the night and again in the early morning resulting in considerable material and human losses. with many roads inaccessible emergency workers used boats to reach people who were stranded others had to be woods to safety thousands of people have been evacuated local officials have closed schools and advise people not to travel experts say it's the worst flooding in order in a century and the danger may not be over the river could continue to rise and cause more damage in a region where so many people have already been affected with al-jazeera paris. now protests have been held in the occupied west bank against a new social security program more than a million private sector employees could be impacted with many saying the scheme will leave them worse off than going to aim has more from ramallah. of course that
2:22 am
all the protesters here are looking for more stability it was a stable environment but they say a new social security program for private sector employees just won't provide. in some cases employees say the retirement programs offered by their companies are much better this would impact more than a million palestinians the law go into effect on november first the protesters want the delay in the implementation so improvements can be made i'll be getting much of this money and it's not secure like if the government collapses all my money is gone and the government says it's going to guarantee the funds the government cannot guarantee anything and by this time five employers would contribute ten percent of worker salary the funds would go to retirement benefits conversation for workplace injuries and externally but this program is privately run unlike the one

2:24 am
applicant is asian american then it's even harder according to a lawsuit which accuses harvard intentionally discriminates against asian americans in order to keep their enroll the numbers down to them are marked down subjectively i have admission officers without ever meeting them harvard's internal admissions documents tell of a score system that according to the lawsuit penalizes asian americans in the personality category though they tend to score higher in academic performance and extra curricular activities their personality score based on descriptors like likability and courageousness is lower than that of any other racial group the lawsuit accuses harvard of engaging in racial balancing resulting in more or less the same breakdown of racial groups year after year twenty per cent now the undergraduate body are asian americans we spoke to some of those students who said
2:25 am
they support harvard's admissions practices it does suck if you think that. college admissions are on fair but i think for us fairness means a lot more like getting into college daniel lewis studying physics and philosophy at harvard the son of chinese immigrants he says harvard should further investigate the complaints of discrimination against asian americans but preserve the legally sanctioned practice of favoring black and hispanic applicants known as affirmative action the plaintiffs really are just making a big mistake in completing. the constitutionality of affirmative action on the one hand with discrimination or potential legit discrimination against asian americans where by way first whatever bloom a white conservative and rebounder of the anti affirmative action group students for fair admissions recruited the unnamed asian americans who are so. doing harvard he declined an interview with al-jazeera the debate has split the asian american
2:26 am
community some accuse blum of using them as a tool to push his real agenda of helping white students while others say harvard is using affirmative action as a past to discriminate against asian americans they don't look at the reality that if you're going to go that are being discriminated against they just write you off meanwhile the trumpet ministration has jumped in to oppose harvard saying no american should be denied admission to school because of their race the politicization of the case is further evidence for many asian americans that they are being used as a racial wedge the case is final outcome will likely be decided by the u.s. supreme court. castro al jazeera cambridge massachusetts bruce fein is a constitutional lawyer and former u.s. associate deputy attorney general and he says the man behind the lawsuit wants to end the practice of affirmative action. i don't think that necessarily because he
2:27 am
has an ulterior motive it somehow spoils the general principle is at stake we fought for a very very long time to establish what we styled a colorblind constitution and that indeed was the motto of the early civil rights movement and crew are moving to affirmative action here now are giving weight to race or gender that ought to be irrelevant to pure merit ability based upon character and accomplishments to succeed so i do think it's whether he has old here motives or not he can't force you know asian americans to be plaintiffs and that's a legitimate question whether or not we're focused on the individual and remember there's nothing that prevents giving a plus to someone who can show the individually were discriminated against as opposed to treating our society is made up of groups rather than individuals and giving group advantages even though individual members may have not suffered at all that's something that i think the united states will be coping with in the next
