11:47 am
a perfect formula for authoritarianism in tyranny or near the light so. there's nowhere to hide let me ask you straight up here is the two state solution no bid up from britain's on al-jazeera. with bureaus spawning six continents across the globe. to. al-jazeera is correspondents live in green the stories they tell. us about it. here are fluent in world news. in major life you see bede's hot. on the fretboard is one of his writes i do not to know all they need to do just that is followed. by nigeria is sucked up
11:48 am
by nigeria is your development manager is there cities this is my nigeria. my nigerian on al-jazeera. i mean this is different not that whether someone is going for someone's favorite spot a weenie tree i think it's how you approach an official and if it is a certain way of doing it it's a conscious. story and try out. sources tell al-jazeera the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi may have been murdered in the kingdom's consulate. in johannesburg one on come on santa maria this is the world news from al-jazeera brett kavanaugh has been sworn in as the u.s.
11:49 am
supreme court justice after a deeply divided senate confirmed his a point it's. also not him protests in brazil against the far right from trying to go ahead of sunday's presidential elections all about plus. i'm andrew thomas in the village a bit because roads out the polish city in indonesia we just flown in on the first helicopter to reach this remote village bringing in eight people here is desperately needed. so sources have told al-jazeera the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi may have been murdered inside his country's consulate in istanbul turkish prosecutors a widening their investigation into his disappearance after a group of saudi officials flew into istanbul and visited the consulate on the day shoji went missing he was last seen entering the building on tuesday however the
11:50 am
reuters news agency says a source at saudi arabia's consulate in istanbul is denying the reports because she was killed at the cones that's the latest now from jamal shale he is in istanbul. talker's occurs officials are now dealing with the case of demand such oshie as a murder investigation late on saturday they had said that they had information that fifteen saudi nationals amongst them officials had flown in on tuesday on two separate flights had gone to the consulate the same time that such ill she was there and then they had left still now there has been no disclosure of the whereabouts of his body however we do understand that a funeral will take place in the coming two or three days or whether that's going to be a funeral with. body president or whether it will be a symbolic one we'll wait and see on sunday president rajab tehran is expected to address this topic for the first time and we are expecting as one source told me
11:51 am
a very strong quote unquote response from turkey with regards to this front on their sovereignty essentially a crime taking place inside turkey by foreign nationals with what would seem to be impunity and i think our would not want that to go away unchallenged obviously it is very challenging for the turks because they do enjoy strong diplomatic relationships with saudi arabia that is one of the reasons why turkish officials did not comment right away off to the disappearance of kushal g what i understand from speaking to several of them that they were exhausting all diplomatic methods to try and find some sort of way out of this crisis but in light of or rather in the absence of any reciprocity or goodwill from riyadh it seems that they are going to disclose everything that also falls in line with information that al jazeera has that there will be within the next day or so or video material and other evidence being disclosed by turkish security officials which will show how for the show the
11:52 am
details of the assassination of the crime that has been committed so as far as obviously the case of this saudi journalists concern it is extremely sad news that he has been killed and aside from that there is obviously also a lot of concern with regards to the diplomatic fallout that's will undoubtedly ensue. we're just going to have a look back at the circumstances surrounding the journalist disappearance jamal khashoggi last seen entering the saudi consulate in istanbul around one pm on tuesday trying to secure paperwork so he could marry his fiance who was waiting outside on friday turkey's foreign ministry summoned saudi arabia's ambassador to ankara over his disappearance and later that day the saudi crown prince mohammed bin salman said of florida's would allow turkey to search its consulate in fact saudi arabia invited a group of journalists into the stoneville mission on saturday trying to show was not on the premises turkey meanwhile has announced it will release c.c.t.v.
11:53 am
evidence in its possession within forty eight hours if an explanation from saudi arabia isn't forth coming so let's talk to ryan graham now about this he's in washington d.c. the d.c. bureau chief in fact of the online publication the intercept. the escalation ryan seems to be quite extraordinary here it's quite one thing to have a journalist disappear but now if these reports are to be believed this is quite extraordinary. right there are a couple elements that that make this awfully extraordinary and one is that you know jamal khashoggi was known to so many people in the world of journalism and you know the rise of mama didn't sound and has been characterized particularly in the united states with an ability to manipulate the american press and so to then assassinate a washington post columnist you know it cuts directly against this is
11:54 am
a virginia resident somebody currently residing in the united states to be killed then in a separate country a different ally in turkey and so you so you have you know you've you've kind of attacked journalism the united states and turkey all at the same time so to what degree do you think then would if it's confirmed would the united states intervene because we know that the united states donald trump in particular has a very cozy relationship with saudi arabia at the moment. so there are two different. you know there are multiple factions within the united states that matter it is possible that for somebody like jared cushion or that this is a that this is a bridge too far you know you've already seen people like thomas friedman who are one of the. biggest promoters of in sound and in in washington in new york you know
11:55 am
calling on him calling on him to release his friend now that you know if it's confirmed that he's been assassinated you that relationship is finished and so as that relationship was severed the relationship with your questioner is frayed and if he doesn't have that then he loses a lot of his ties to donald trump now the structural relationship between trump and the saudis is still there whatever financial relationship might be there as is still there and the joint admiration for joe just a lot of strength would remain but there are also in this country democrats and we're having an election here in zero in november and democrats are already condemning if true the assassination. that took place on tuesday and when they are in power they will have significant influence over united states policy towards saudi arabia so a a strategy of linking up soley with one person donald trump is not a is not
11:56 am
a long term active strategy spoken to a number of guests in the past few hours ryan who knew jamal khashoggi to varying degrees one of them had known him for thirty years in fact what was your relationship with him how well did you know what did you what did you make of his work. you know i had meyers work you know i've known him i guess for about the last year he's only been in the united states. since last since last fall so i haven't had a chance to get to know him terribly well personally. and it appears that i won't get that chance if it's true what what happened in the in the consulate on on tuesday but he was you know he was he was he was well respected and and you know well known among people in washington that that write about foreign policy and and he was also somebody you know he's often described as a dissident. but but you know he he wasn't somebody who was always critical of
11:57 am
saudi arabia you could tell that he he loved his country and he saw you know the writing that he was doing and what he and what he was doing in washington as to the benefit of saudi arabia he thought that it was constructive you thought that he was providing constructive criticism and that's and that's similar to been salomon's approach to a number of critics who agree with him on most issues but might have some some differences on an on on some tactics and and they're you know they're in prison they're tortured and they're assassinated and then so these these are not genuine and these are not genuine enemies though they're treated like they are yet you know the first fifty say that he's not necessarily a dissident just a journalist ron graham actually there's no such thing as just a journalist i shouldn't say that ron graham thank you so much for your time to appreciate that thank you. now we're moving on brett kavanaugh president trump's
11:58 am
supreme court pick has been sworn in after a contentious senate vote senators spent more than thirty hours giving their final testimonies for and against the nominee who'd been accused of sexual assault as mike hanna reports from washington d.c. kavanagh's appointment cements a five four conservative majority in the court for years perhaps decades. britta kavanagh has been sworn in as a supreme court justice off to successfully going through the nomination process the clerk will call the roll xander but earlier the focus was interrupted repeatedly by shouts from the public gallery sergeant in arms will restore order in the gallery an indication of the deep division within and without the senate chamber. kavanagh's and tire performance of the debate that lasted through the night only one democrat voted in favor one republican opposed nomination a vote to confirm judge kavanaugh today is about to worry dark chapter and the
11:59 am
threat of history and turn the page toward a brighter tomorrow the confirmation passed by a narrow to vote much in the nomination of brit m. cavanaugh of maryland to be an associate justice of the supreme court of the united states is confirmed i i i i i throughout the day protesters gathered outside the supreme court the vast majority deeply opposed to the appointment of brett kavanaugh and feel the impact he will have on the court the supreme court is critical to our democracy they make choices that impact our lives our futures and our children's eyes we are not going to say here and just lie down and let this country metion get us down we're going to get right back up keep fighting and get that change that we want even if it's not president trump those saw a different picture of the gathering the tweet before the vote was taken womenfolk of annoy and many others who support the very good man are gathering all over
12:00 pm
capitol hill it's a beautiful thing to see he continues and they are not paid professional protesters who are handed expensive signs big day for america this bitter nomination process could have a major impact on the midterm elections that take place next month an opportunity. for democrats to call back a majority in both the house and the senate. but even this would not change a simple stark fact with this second successful confirmation president trump has pushed the center of the court firmly to the right by kana al-jazeera washington. president speaking at a rally in kansas about cavanagh's confirmation. i'm just a few hours ago the u.s. senate confirmed judges.
