7:02 am
have enough evidence to actually put those sanctions in place but i'm i think we'll be able to get there we're going to find the fact that a president said we will demand accountability for those who are involved in the commission of this i described sanctions would not be the only repercussion from the u.s. more than a week ago the state department revoked the visas of twenty one saudi nationals identified as involved in the operation to kill. secretary michael impale said at the time those penalties would not be the last word even as the u.s. continued to gather facts that included cia director gina haskell travelling to turkey and reportedly listening to the audio recording of killing turkey is leading the investigation it says she was strangled almost immediately after entering the saudi consulate on october second. no one will escape responsibility this issue has become universal it cannot be covered up and it is watched by
7:03 am
everyone in the world turkey will transparently share with all international institutions the data of the investigation process we expect saudi officials to cooperate with the turkish side in the investigations through joint work to uncover all the circumstances of this crime. meanwhile the washington post reports saudi arabia's crown prince mohammed bin selman spoke with senior trump administration officials prior to the kingdom of knowledge and killing in the private call been someone reportedly said he was dangerous and a member of the muslim brotherhood a point the journalist had long denied later in public prince amman would change his tune calling the show gays killing a terrible mistake. and not justifiable key questions remain about what exactly happened including what his killers did with his body the u.s. state department says it's calling on saudi arabia to return remains to his family
7:04 am
as soon as possible heidi joe castro al-jazeera washington let's go live now to istanbul i was there as is outside the saudi consulate so. what happens next. well it's been a month since she was murdered and it has been a very difficult investigation if you speak to turkish officials they say that saudi arabia has just not been cooperative it did take them three weeks to acknowledge that she was in fact killed inside the consulate it took them two weeks to give turkish investigators access to the crime scene to the saudi consulate as well as to the residence of the consul general the saudi top prosecutor was as in istanbul earlier this week he didn't present any evidence that adds really to the investigation in fact turkish officials believe he came here to find out what
7:05 am
evidence turkish officials have if you talk to people here many believe that this was not just about murdering a man who was a critic of those in power in saudi arabia it was much more than that the plan was to implicate the turkish government in this murder in. disappearance but that plan backfired simply because his fiance fiance was waiting for him outside he she saw him enter the building and he did not come back out so she was a witness and also the very fact that there was this double. body double who was exposed as a fake so that the plan backfired but still there is a lot of frustration to the lack of cooperation on the part of saudi arabia if you read the pro-government press the editorials there stressing on one point that if the united states there's not exert any pressure on saudi arabia saudi arabia will claim that they have punished those responsible and yesterday we heard the deputy
7:06 am
head of the ruling party say you know trump is trying to cover up this murder so it's not just frustration with the lack of cooperation on the part of saudi arabia there seems to be frustration with the u.s. administration not taking a tougher position even though the cia director was here last week or ten days ago and what we understand is that she did hear this much talked about audio recording so the question now is who will make the next move and what will the next move be. so many thanks indeed sent out of their life in istanbul will follow. the spotlight also is on how much money saudi arabia spends in the u.s. trying to buy influence in both politics and education some universities are now considering whether to cut ties with riyadh as a serious political hay and reports from washington. this is the university of new haven in the state of connecticut not the most scenic campus or the most well known but it is now drawing nationwide media attention for its relationship to saudi

7:19 am
a marathon every day she's developed to call. them on half whether it's because we're sleeping rough the winds get to her that's why she's sick this is a day in the life that the rain is a lie a family home durance travelling in a caravan trying to reach the us today's route forty kilometers to the mix content of weeks they've left early to avoid the midday sun but dad alvin is struggling through can push a stroller in a dorm break he explains why. this is that this is the leg it's bad it's this one with polio it's been seven months early in his sophie's eight months pregnant but she didn't want to have her baby but code. that out alone he would have fought for like the other children there born into poverty off the four hour was she struggling then the family gets a break a ride from a passing truck it revives the flagging children. it's set some down before a migration checkpoint one of several in the south mit's can roam without papers
7:20 am
their only hope to get through is by sheer force of numbers they have to wait for the others at least erling compressed two hours later the caravan catches up and passes together the type ticks worked but his mid day approaches the race allies have other problems no food. no spare clothes a man pulls up out of nowhere and helps with the first two and then the third. becomes he says the mexicans of been divided over the caravan but today help is ever present this lady simply sweeps up the family and pays the bus tickets just in time at the end of their strength. and it makes you wonder what's going to happen to them i just had to help when i saw the baby they finally made it two weeks here they can rest but there's no shelter so that we just have these blankets for the children don't sleep on the pier pavement as the rain fools they try and work out
7:21 am
their next move so everyone is just settling down now after what's been an exhausting day but they've still got about two thousand kilometers to get to the buddha and that they cover right that's going to take them at least a month and a hall but first there's a lie a raise family has to try and get through the noise their own home and now does it or weeks. evelyn magill is the president of humanitarian organization project hope three sixteen she says the president trump is using the plight of migrants to rally political support ahead of the midterm elections. these are human beings i mean a lot of these people are families that are coming together and so they're fleeing because there's the this debilitation of their country i mean from a social economic perspective the violence is rising and people do just one better future for their children
7:22 am
a better future for themselves and their families and so you know it's just the political unrest that you know the economic instability those are the things that are really driving these people i think that they're very much aware that the that the president of the united states does not welcome them here but i think that they have probably using this to their advantage in the sense that he has been using this to mislead people during this midterm election and so he has given them a great platform the media and so yeah i think that they do know the opposition that they face but they also know that there is a greater america that does embrace them and does welcome them we're talking about over seventy five hundred people that are trying to cross the border for a better tomorrow and so we're not sure what's going to happen we do know that mexico is open to helping the families united states obviously doesn't have the same. attitude or heard the same grace for the families and really the united
7:23 am
states but you know nest as a you know the president of the united states who is really using this you know to make sure that he rallies up his voters in this midterm election for whatever reason you know he's using these scare tactics to make sure that people come out and vote in favor of his politics which we know of course are inhumane i mean they're literally against what america stands for and so you know it is going to be a problem that we're going to be seen for some time and you know we're going to be watching but yeah i you know they they will you know there will be on our radar for quite some time this is you know this is a huge undertaking. talking about seventy five hundred people eight hundred miles away from our borders there's a lot it's going to happen trying because president has climbed down on his decision to suspend parliament calling for a meeting of politicians next week the second of prime minister renewal wickramasinghe and his replacement with former leader mahinda rajapaksa has caused
7:24 am
a political crisis as bernard smith reports from colombo. he has all the trappings of prime minister including access to the office but the new prime minister mahinda rajapaksa is acting unconstitutionally his critics say because he was appointed by president by three policy was saying or a not elected by the embers of parliament one of mr rajapaksa how useless i must see you is your about look when legitimate you think serbia says it's the institution of this budget the argument is that parliament should be deciding who's the prime minister not the normal norm. read the institution the new framework and so your immediate one search for a now you're assuming the prime minister's position to be ignored or both of these the rajapaksa needs the backing of one hundred thirteen m.p.'s to solidify his return to power but the president suspended parliament some suspect he did that to give rajapaksa time to get enough support how will you get enough support from
7:25 am
parliament how do you get the n.p.c. what we have to understand that the short and so why the delay in recalling parliament what are we hanging on for you know because we want to. get ready for the i did rajapakse that was at the prime minister's office to meet academics telling them there's no crisis as far as he's concerned it certainly is a crisis but the ousted prime minister randall wickramasinghe or he's refusing to leave the official residence of the pm he says he remains prime minister because the power to sack him was stripped from the president two years ago by an amendment to the constitution the whole structure of government in the country is still very strong the executive. and the presumption is that the presidency is the strongest office they were in though the nineteenth amendment has made changes to that and therefore what the president seems to say go rajapaksa
7:26 am
serve two terms as president defeated thomas separatists in a twenty six year long civil war but was accused of human rights abuses in the process his family and in a circle is under investigation for corruption and you're looking forward to your new position so you're looking forward to being prime minister really much he wanted to play hard to get behind the rajapaksa is presenting an image of business as usual but we've run away from a single still claiming to be the legitimate prime minister things are far from usual parliament will though now get to have the final say it seems when it's soon recalled and m.p.'s get to vote. but it's al-jazeera columbus police in the u.s. are investigating the mysterious deaths of two sisters from saudi arabia who were found dead in new york the bodies which were bound together washed up on the city's waterfront last week kristen salumi reports. new york city police searching the banks of the hudson river looking for clues to help them solve the mystery

conservationists are debating whether to turn one of the most remote parts of the planet into an ocean sanctuary the weddell sea in antarctica could be home to thousands of undiscovered species many people support an e.u. proposal to make it a no go zone for intensive fishing mining and deep sea drilling as andrew thomas reports now from the meeting in hobart australia. the conference has been going on in the building behind me here in hobart but two weeks and yet it's all come down to the final day friday nothing particularly surprising about twenty six years ago when even bigger marine park was agreed for and talked it was about lunch time on the final day when the delegates all paid him out celebrating the bike week. as things look but this time around the signs are not positive there's no suggestion that we'll be able to go in and watch the deliberations for ourselves but the
7:30 am
record break things that we have high say there are still looks. to be had and really time is running out this time around they'll be discussing fishing rights in the proposed marine park if there were to be any at all whether any mining can happen on the fringes of territorial claims how long any marine park agreement would last these are very detailed issues which frankly should have been sorted out by now. it looks unlikely the consensus is going to be great. adrian sitting in here in doha the headlines and i was here in the u.s. secretary of state says it may be weeks before washington has enough evidence to impose sanctions on saudi arabia over the murder of journalist. mike pompei a sense the u.s. wants those behind the killing to be held accountable istanbul's chief prosecutor has revealed that she was strangled to death as soon as he entered the saudi
