7:46 pm
the new trend the al-jazeera when osiris. or that is a useful for now have to feel later laura thanks very much indeed and that's it for me nora caught this news but i will be back in just a moment with more of the day's news for you. al-jazeera world travels to the lebanese city of tripoli. to meet the widows living in one of the world's most ancient refuges.
7:47 pm
more than seven hundred years old it still upholds the charitable tradition of sheltering those with no means of supporting themselves the widows sanctuary on al-jazeera. conservation ease helping kyrgyzstan to recover its snow leopard population to see the results i traveled up to the remote nature reserve of saudi chat at a touch camera traps have identified a healthy population of up to twenty snow leopards as the technology improves we're finding all these ways in which our guesses are are getting corrected the latest evidence suggests there are more cats than previously acknowledged but this low level of trust believes it's premature to downgrade the cats on the international list of threatened species. demand is outstrip supply an

inference of a commodity. adoption is a compassionate act for children but not against the with their mother's. cruel uganda tribune ited states food lines investigates innocent lives have been court in a tug of war between biological and or don't have parents. soup lines on al-jazeera. turkish police believe a prominent saudi john lewis is being murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul. and our nora kyle this is out there a life and also coming up the number of people missing after an earthquake and
7:49 pm
tsunami rises dramatically. some entering a conservative majority in the u.s. supreme court brett kavanaugh is sworn in after a close vote and this is a divided senate. who to vote for in brazil what's being described as. the most divisive election in thirty years is about to begin. turkish authorities believe a saudi journalist missing since tuesday has been killed inside the saudi consulate in istanbul jamal khashoggi disappeared five days ago after entering the building to pick up marriage paperwork turkish officials told voices the police believe the murder was premeditated and the body moved out of the building saudi arabia denies all of the allegations. following the story for us and joins us from istanbul so the text pretty convinced in there and what they believe happened i'm not saying
7:50 pm
them coming out on record. indeed the. statements made by senior party officials that is the governing party hearing sarky among them. and others who have said that it is becoming more and more clear through the officials here what happens. in reference to sources within the security apparatus speaking late on saturday saying that they are now dealing with the disappearance of controversy as a murder investigation they believe ever it was a premeditated crime that took place after she had initially gone into the embassy . four days before that fateful tuesday and was told by authorities or officials in the consulate rather to come back on the tuesday on that tuesday coincidentally fifteen saudi nationals amongst them several officials according to istanbul's
7:51 pm
police entered the country went to the consulate at the same time that she was there and then very quickly left not only the consulates building but also the country in its entirety so therefore the belief amongst the officials here based on evidence they say they have including c.c.t.v. footage not only around the consulates building but also in the airports they believe that it points to the fact that. she was assassinated inside the consulate building. the president. be addressing a posse rally within the do we expect him to also address this. well i mean the problem with the president of iran is that when he does speak he speaks for a long time and he sometimes doesn't hold back and what we understand when we we've contacted some of his press about it is that they aren't expecting him to speak
7:52 pm
however there is obviously the off trans that maybe he decides to make a comment on this i would say monitoring this situation as i have been for the past couple of days that it would probably be more on likely that he does comment on it because till now there hasn't been an official press conference held by the police to disclose the information we would expect that when the president does talk about this he would do soldier talk about the diplomatic fallout that's would occur as a result of that diplomatic fallout at the level of it were to only be determined by how conclusive the evidence is presented those through what exactly took place so it would be a bit of putting the cart before the horse if you speak of the president does comment on his right now but like i say is we know this is such a sensitive topic it is one that has not only people here in turkey in the arab world as well but also internationally because of these connections as well as the fact that used to write for the washington post and other renowned outlets and
7:53 pm
therefore maybe because of that huge level of public interest you will hear a comment from president of iran when he speaks in the coming hour will mother said that place say what we had for the saudi on all this. well the only thing that we've had is a statement that was pushed out by the saudi official news agency citing unnamed consulate source denying the accusations or the claim that she was killed in there in that building interestingly the way it was where i did was it denies that he was killed in the building and doesn't necessarily deny that he was killed and that's something that also increases the worry among those who have been trying to be reassured but trying to find some sort of reassurance through his well being obviously before that's crown prince mohammed bin for the man had spoken to reuters rather sorry to bloomberg on wednesday but that interview only came out on the friday saying that he was happy for turkish officials to come and search the
7:54 pm
premises and not something else that led the investigators to believe that he was killed because if the crown prince is saying on wednesday twenty four hours after his surgery went missing but there will be he's waiting for the authorities to come and search the consulate and if the police have zero evidence and they were footage of. coming out of the building but they only have him but when you get into the building then the assumption would lead to true unfortunately the conclusion that he was indeed killed but the true statements like i say were mentioned from the saudi one has been from the crown prince a couple days back on the other has been from the saudi news agency late on saturday in response to the sources of coming out of police the statements coming out of security sources here and psyche that they believe he was killed so many questions that need to be answered jamal to the moment thanks for joining us there from istanbul on the stuff and senior fellow at the cato institute and he says this
7:55 pm
incident will further. it just shows that what authoritarian governments can do to their citizens in this day and age and with trouble with authoritarianism still very much alive in our world this certainly will also create a problem between turkey and saudi arabia the two countries have already tense actually relationship now since the military coup in egypt in two thousand and thirteen that the saudis supported turkey opposed and then the dispute over qatar also added to that so turkey and saudi feelings are not very warm and i think this incident will add to that the saudi claims are not just credible i think anybody can see that because they said he entered a consulate and he left and we don't know what happened but his wife was out there are so he didn't leave so that said that's a fact and i think turkish government probably true that he didn't leave because the video footage you will see her nephew days i mean it's just not credible and i
7:56 pm
think anybody who has a sense of decency should understand that this is something not acceptable it's not acceptable to kill a citizen because of its views do it in a different country and just as if doctors or whatever i mean it was the operation and i think anybody who believes in democracy human rights freedom should really not just criticize but really go go there a strict or sorry or be on this and this should not be tolerated and then a disaster relief spokesman says that as many as five thousand people may be missing from last week's earthquake and tsunami that figure is significantly higher than the one thousand that officials the nestle estimates they buried beneath the rubble to tepco poem a new question how also announced that's the search for victims will end on thursday at this point they'll be listed as missing presumed dead and to tell us has more from ballarat than it. it is a big increase in the government's official estimate of how many remain missing they put this they could together by talking to community leaders and village
7:57 pm
leaders about how many people they think are still unaccounted for in two big areas of the city and here in ballarat now there could be some double counting going on or it could be that people escaped moved to other parts of the ways and didn't tell anybody where they go and so we should add those have yet nevertheless for the government to be saying five thousand people may remain missing well that would push this death if the number were confirmed to be dead not just missing to triple what we think it is at the moment the government has said that this area of the city will be turned into a forest park people will not return to live here will be a memorial park essentially they said as well that they will significantly wind down the search for bodies from august eleventh because after about two weeks bodies of the composed to the point where they can't be recognized anyway and they are better frankly leaving them in the ground thankfully in their graves the government also revealed that they knew all the local government here and you back in twenty twelve that this part of the city was subject to vulnerable to
7:58 pm
liquefaction in that they got quite and that's exactly what happened here the ground essentially turned into liquid given the pressures on the ground swallowed everything on top of it will be a lot of questions. actually of states has been in north korea for more deep talks as my pump has forced it and this yeah the second round of talks the leader kim jong un is aimed at setting up a second summit with donald trump. but cavanaugh president supreme court choice has been sworn in after a contentious senate vote since the spent more than thirty hours giving their final testimonies for and against the nominee accused of sexual assault as mike hanna reports from washington d.c. cavanagh's appointment cements a conservative five four majority in the court 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

8:00 pm
the appointment of brett kavanaugh and fearful of 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 sit here and just lie down and let this confirmation 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 though saw a different picture of the gathering the street before the vote was taken women for kavanaugh and many others who support the very good man are gathering all over 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 to take place next month an opportunity for democrats to call back a majority in both the house and the senate.
