the country's next president. one child's cry for help is heard but the fight continues to save the thousands still starving in yemen . hello turkey's president has challenged saudi arabia to prove that journalist jamal khashoggi left the consulate in istanbul last tuesday richard says turkish officials are looking into casualties disappearance very he was murdered inside the building saudi arabia insists it has nothing to hide. reports from istanbul. almost a week has passed since she went missing and still no evidence has emerged of what has happened to him turkey's foreign ministry summon the saudi ambassador on monday for the second time and police formally requested permission to search the saudi
consulates in istanbul speaking from budapest president. called on saudi authorities to release information on jamal's fate but. consulate officials cannot save themselves by saying that he left the building don't you have cameras if he left you have to prove it with footage of those who asked turkish authorities where he is should ask what happened to them. she was last seen entering this six story building last tuesday saudi diplomats there insists he left shortly after his fiance waiting outside sees she hasn't seen him since when asked about the consulate surveillance system the saudi consul general said the cameras didn't record so there's no video of casualty entering or leaving turkish security sources have said they're dealing with a murder investigation after concluding that special jihad almost certainly being killed inside the saudi diplomatic mission president or one had told reporters that he was personally following the case but there's been a notable silence from saudi arabia's and eyes news of the united states the
european union or the united kingdom have publicly put any pressure on the riad ali the united nations however has spoken out if it's proven. and it does seem at this point that this is what the turkish government believes that jamal khashoggi was murdered in the saudi consulate than at the very least i think i i would like to see the international community imposing some consequences on this brutal brutal act journalists gathered again on monday outside the saudi mission in istanbul in solidarity with their missing colleague and to denounce the saudi government if i thought that's a great find of the. take way out of this crisis then the continued refusal by saudi arabia to cooperate or to the disclose of any information that would lead to subtrees whereabouts or well being is fast proving them wrong. to stumble at
the disappearance of jamal khashoggi is shining a light on the growing risks involved in journalism around the world the past two years have seen a string of high profile journalists murdered of course. victoria marin over looks like the latest grim statistic in the dangerous world of journalism her body discovered in a bulgarian town where she was investigating the corrupt misuse of european union funds she joins the likes of daphne carolina blown up near her home in a car bomb john ku's yak shot dead outside his home in slovakia and if turkey is right jamal khashoggi allegedly murdered in the saudi consulate in istanbul all of the reporters intent on exposing abuses he was silenced when impunity runs that over ninety percent most people think it's it's likely they'll get away with killing a journalist and what often happens is maybe the killer gets core but the intellectual mastermind the person who planned it the person who paid for it the person who
instructed it they get away scot free and indeed many of them become political leaders in different countries around the world or certainly people with a high up in business or high up in corporations. globally mexico remains the most dangerous place in the world to report from followed by all the countries in the middle east and asia where war has made journalists likely to be targeted in the same way as enemy fighters in fact the number of reporters dying has actually dropped since a peak two years ago but only because reporters are simply stopped going to places deemed too high risk of course there are some journalists who only plan flight routes they don't fly in airspace is of for example countries in the arab world if they're flying for example it's east asia they will fly by finland they will avoid at all costs any airspace whereby an airline will be ordered by government to land this is the journalist and they kidnapped in a few days ago i called the fake is the enemy of the people and they are it isn't
much of a surprise that there's been virtually no international response to the bizarre disappearance of jamal khashoggi when any number of world leaders in the u.s. and elsewhere claim journalists are the enemy of the people. not only is there a dwindling political defensive free reporting but increasingly an apparent acceptance that digging for stories may result in physical harm. in the end it's about democracy or whether it matters. lawrence lee al-jazeera. time is running out the world's leading climate scientists are warning of an environmental catastrophe unless urgent action is taken to tackle global warming a nobel prize winning intergovernmental panel on climate change says warming needs to be capped at one and a half degrees celsius but as it currently stands the world is set to pass this
mark by as early as twenty thirty years when rising sea levels with up to ten million more people exposed to the risks of flooding and you can say goodbye to coral reefs which we wiped out but also mean more heat waves with four hundred twenty million more people affected the ability to grow vital crops such as rice wheat and maize would be hit many more food shortages so what can people do to make a difference or some to suggest simple things such as buying less meat in a few a dairy products and choosing locally sourced food using public transport and driving electric cars would also make a big difference and taking fewer planes for business travel but even barber has our report the threats been clear and present for many years climate change caused by human activity is putting our very survival in peril now the un's climate change body says concerted action needs to come much sooner than previously thought early action to eliminate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions it's possible they are
options available there are signs that mitigation is going on but if this is to be achieved there's an urgent need to accelerate. three years ago at the paris climate change conference many governments gave themselves a pat on the back they pledged to take action to limit temperature rises to one point five degrees celsius above pre-industrial levels now the experts say they're failing and time is running out the i.p.c.c. says meeting that one point five degrees target requires a forty five percent cut in carbon emissions by twenty thirty and alarmingly zero net carbon emissions by twenty fifty with steep cuts in other greenhouse gases like methane it's a question of whether we can make certain decisions in the coming years with the benefit of fisheries going to be our children and grandchildren and the. coming generations the i.p.c.c. says by the end of this century global sea level rises would be ten centimeters lower with warming of one point five degrees compared to two degrees and the arctic
is likely to be ice free in summer around once a century at one point five degrees but at least once a decade if warming reaches two degrees none of this is academic faster action will reduce flooding giving people living on the world's coasts islands and river deltas time to adapt to climate change then there are the millions affected by drought many on the african continent we need to look at climate finance and strategies that ensure that we sort of speed up climate climate action related to issues like our culture our food security livelihoods and migrations and that's because migrations and migration is no longer a choice for lots of people in the continent it is now in moscow because of global warming the i.p.c.c. report says renewable energy must account for at least seventy percent of electricity by twenty fifty compared with twenty five percent now to stay within the one point five degree limit carbon will have to be sucked out of the air by
machines installed on the ground and billions of trees will have to be planted and they'll be tough choices between using land for food or for biofuel crops we've been shown the solutions now it's over to our politicians and to us letting barbara al-jazeera. brazil's far right candidate. is celebrating his success in sunday's presidential election where he gained forty six percent of votes he says he'll stick to his tough talk when campaigning for the runoff later this month and has already begun to talk hold talks with other lawmakers in congress about forming a coalition government to his abode joins us live now from sao paolo to his house sunday's result be received. well brazil is a polarized country a divided country and that's evident on the streets and on reaction about sunday's results on one side there are those who would do anything possible so that the
workers' party will never make it to power again especially after the corruption scandal in this country the car wash operation bad i have many many people here angry on the other side there are those who will do anything or vote for anyone that won't allow a person like vote or not go to become brazil's next president many are fearing for brazil's democracy but on the other side are the markets and this is a not a surprise his whole brazilian reality soaring stock exchange's up especially after o'donnell has announced that his financial advisor as a liberal economist from kabul university also matter has already said that to many of his policies will include privatizing state owned companies to reducing the press and self the state in the economy mohmed other very liberal measures and obviously the markets seem to be liking that very much and bear in mind the gap what can one hundred do to try to turn this around. well it's
going to be a difficult fight for for a man to adopt in the next three weeks there's seventeen point difference between both candidates and the campaign has already started today with that number that visiting former president lula da silva in prison we're hearing that he's trying or he's announcing that he's going to distance him. well formed the former president a bit and be more independent this is what's being suggested that he's going to move towards the center in order to convince those who do not like the workers' party who do not like the corruption that happened while the corruption while the workers' party was in power to vote for him also had that has been a very clear message that is that that he's fighting for democracy defending democracy that the next election is about brazilian democracy and he's already started to talk to some candidates like for example who came in third. in others so that they would could move in his voters to vote for him tears of of thank you very
much indeed. there is still ahead. nationalist who wants to break up bosnia herzegovina is set to take power after sunday's election. we have an exclusive report on the drought in afghanistan that's forced more than three million people to flee their homes. how they were about half way through continuous rain in highland scotland from the massive cloud above my head that could leave a thing up to about two hundred millimeters of rain possibly maybe more than that it's ridiculous right but it's falling of the last not the most active weather in your part from the few showers down here in the west and that rain which will carry all next twenty four hours if anything maybe conglomerated and then start to feed themselves back up through march say that's where the rain valley and give

fireworks and the streets filled with the sound of celebrations as bosniak and croats welcome to day a new president. but in the serbian capital a band you luko. welcomed his own ascension to the stage of international politics by singing a popular love song. in the cold light of day though the realisation was sinking in that a serbian nationalist who wants to break out of bosnia herzegovina will be the first of the rotating presidents to be in power. at the seminar i really don't know if i can even bear to see the name of dr but i think kate is coming to power so that's another four years of misery and poverty without jobs pensioners are abandoned without anything i mean it's a catastrophe. has promised the serbian entity of republika srpska will break away from bosnia herzegovina he's also said on his first day in office he'll write
a letter to president donald trump to demand the abolition of the office of the high representative it's a key part of the dayton accords which brought an end to the bosnian war and is meant to protect the country's constitution. in a break with tradition miller ad the door dick will talk to his fellow members of the presidential council here in the eastern suburb the so dominated suburb of sarajevo and he'll do it by video link. in sarajevo a scottish artist and photographer opened this exhibition on the eve of the polish it's made up of old election posters he called it disintegration he first came to the city in one thousand nine hundred ninety five as the war was about to end and i think what we've ended up with in the country is this sort of cycle of provocation going on it's not progress on is not growing a country from. some political analysts say bit by bit the new serbian president
