brazil's far right movement is one step closer to becoming the country's next president. in sports something cool is officially named as the host nation for the twenty twentieth's or use olympics the west african nation will be the first country from the continent to stage an elliptical facts. turkey's president has challenge saudi arabia to prove that journalist jamal khashoggi left that consulate in istanbul last tuesday but says turkish officials are looking into khashoggi his disappearance fearing 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 monday
12:02 am
for the second time and police formally requested permission to search the saudi consulates in istanbul speaking from budapest president obama called on saudi authorities to release information on jamal's fate but. the lady 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. she was last seen entering this six story building last tuesday saudi diplomats there insist 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 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
12:03 am
he was personally following the case but there's been a notable silence from saudi arabia's and eyes needs 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 it could find a diplomatic. this crisis then the continued refusal by saudi arabia to cooperate or to disclose or any information that would lead through. subtrees whereabouts or
12:04 am
wellbeing is fast proving them wrong. istanbul the start of al-jazeera have taken a stand in solidarity with missing saudi journalist you mark the managing director of al-jazeera english giles trendall says the world needs answers about his disappearance this be free or has he been detained and kidnapped in contravention of the most basic human rights and diplomatic privilege is even alive or has he been a victim of state sponsored murder the international community needs answers we as fellow journalists need answers we stand here today to reaffirm journalism is not a crime we reassert our demand for the release of al-jazeera journalist mahmud hossain detained in egypt without trial for six hundred fifty seven days we stand in solidarity with the two reuters reporters imprisoned in myanmar we stand in solidarity with all journalists who have been harassed detained imprisoned or
12:05 am
killed just for doing their jobs today in the wake of jamal cut short his disappearance the world needs information about his whereabouts and his fate while his disappearance 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 or sleep reports. 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. 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
12:06 am
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 score but the intellectual mastermind the person who planned it the person he 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 an 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
12:07 am
at all costs any airspace whereby an airline will be ordered by government to land this is the journalist and they kidnapped him a few days ago i call the fake news 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 defense of 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. time is running out the world's leading climate scientists are warning of an environmental catastrophe an aspersion action is taken to tackle global warming the 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
12:08 am
mark by as early as twenty thirty this will mean rising sea levels with up to ten million more people exposed to the risk of flooding and you can say goodbye to coral reefs which will be wiped out it will 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 hits meaning more food shortages so what can people do on an ordinary level most scientists suggest simple things such as buying less meat and fewer dairy products and choosing a locally sourced food using public transport and driving electric cars would also make a big difference and taking fewer planes for business travel that in 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
12:09 am
action to eliminate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions it's possible they are options available there are signs that mitigation is going on but even if used 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 sure than the systems in the coming years that the benefit of fisheries are going to be our children no grandchildren and. coming generations the i.p.c.c. says by the end of this century global sea level rises would be ten centimeters
12:10 am
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. lots of people in the continent it is now we must 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
12:11 am
the one point five degree limits 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 they'll be tough choices between using land for food fuel crops we've been shown the solutions now it's over to our politicians to us that evolve al-jazeera. warned of woman and what can be done to tackle it to speak to naomi ages she's a senior climate campaigner with greenpeace in the u.s. and joins us live from washington d.c. thanks everybody for being with us so they talk about urgent and unprecedented changes needed to reach the target what would you say the key ones and how quickly can those be implemented hi lauren thanks very much for having me here today and we're glad that you're focusing on this report because really urgent climate action is the single most important thing we can be focusing on right now it's a matter of life and death and so the report contains any number of pathways that we really need to hit all of them to to address the warming that's coming to keep
12:12 am
warming to one point five degrees because there is no safe level of warming and the people that are going to be most impact are those that are least able to handle those impacts they are some of the most underdeveloped countries and some of the poorest countries and so the best thing that we can do is transition immediately immediately away from fossil fuels and who are noble energy and really we need to do that within the next decade and certainly by two thousand and fifty at the absolutely best what the current political climate i mean we had to president trumpeting after the paris agreement we have both sonora who might become the new president in brazil he's trying to do the same it is there the will internationally to make this happen. i think people of the world didn't need this report to tell them that we need to make this happen there's already people experiencing devastating effects from climate change and those effects are going to get worse not just in places like in puerto rico in bangladesh even in texas with hurricanes
12:13 am
that we've seen it's really going to hit everyone everywhere and so. the political will must follow and it's really unconscionable unconscionable now for political leaders to not have serious plans for addressing climate change and it's unconscionable for them to not take action to protect the poorest and most vulnerable this report doesn't tell people anything they didn't need to know but it does tell us that we need to demand it from governments and corporations that we need rapid climate action how surprised are you that i mean even nations that have committed in the past to reduce their emissions have done things which then go against that kind of attempt to reduce fossil fuels i mean there's britain pushing ahead with gas fracking noise oil exploration. the german government is still using coal a lot. if the ones that do sign up to these targets then don't match those kind of those actions what hope is there for other countries. that's
12:14 am
a really important question and it's an important to point out that no country has gone far enough in addressing climate change within their own borders within their own adaptation systems within their own plans to phase out fossil fuels and really we have to make the commitment that there will be no more new coal in asia in europe that we won't build another pipeline here in the u.s. we won't drop drill for a single drop of oil off shore and it's really important that people vote for candidates that are committed to those things because we have to demand it from leaders and we have to show leaders that there are consequences for continuing to plow ahead with fossil fuels and not really taking the steps that are needed to save us from these catastrophic impacts. on the research you've done a minute do you get the sense that people have started to get it about climate change i mean in the past they've been these reports from these kind of bodies and people are trying to get to the statistics of one percent or two percent do you get
12:15 am
the impression that the ordinary people actually believe these reports are that they're actually prepared to take the action themselves. i think there's a few things going on in that question which is that like i said we don't need reports to tell us that climate change is real puerto rico is still devastated from a hurricane last year north carolina is cleaning itself up from a from a recent hurricane and we know there's another hurricane headed for florida right now typhoons are in the philippines are becoming stronger and stronger and happening more often so people know that climate change is here people know what these reports are saying in the science are happening on the ground so it's really a question now of will political leaders be brave enough and will they commit to the things well and political leaders and corporate leaders commit to the things that are happening that we then that we need to do to address them so there's individual actions that you can take but there's also a need for leadership need for commitment and need for accountability on behalf of
12:16 am
politicians and corporate leaders because those are the large scale changes that are the things that are necessary to save us from this catastrophe in the next ten years they may just thank you very much due to joining us sir from greenpeace thank you thank you much more head on the. one child's cry for help is heard but the fight continues to save the thousands still starving in yemen. a nationalist who wants to break up the bosnia-herzegovina is set to take power after sunday's election. and in sports a first test century for harrison who puts pakistan's cricketers in charge against australia. there less than three weeks to go till brazil's presidential runoff and if the results of sunday's first rounder anything to go by it's a sure fire victory for

12:18 am
his mentor former president lula da silva. in twenty days of campaigning we were able to get more than thirty million votes and take a little known candidate it into a runoff on the strength of our political platform. but widespread anger against lula who is serving a twelve year prison sentence for corruption is had dad's chillies heal but it's an uphill battle it's a very long uphill battle has to find some way to connect to this people has to find a way to put for his own message to disentangle himself from miller's image but the day after the election had dad's first move was to visit lula in prison also nat'l who has a commanding lead says he won't back off from his most controversial views like supporting torture shooting criminals on sight and vilifying gays in women's rights groups. i can't suddenly turn into a peace and love joey said paul so narrow in

a radio interview i can't violate myself that way i have to continue being myself. already disturbing signs of intolerance reminiscent of a different time are emerging at this school for example parents demanded that a novel about a family that was forced to go into exile during brazil's military dictatorship be taken off the curriculum arguing it was too leftist and at brazil's national university chapters dealing with human rights were found ripped out of books and thrown on the floor crowded hour in brazil has never been more polarized and given an unprecedented barrage of fake news on social networks international observers warn the campaign could get uglier before it's over see in human al-jazeera rio de janeiro. a deal between russia and turkey to avert a military invasion in the syrian province of libya's moving forward syrian rebels are removed or heavy weapons from the front line creating

there is surely. and the day was. probably. very. turkey's president. says turkish intelligence agents an adlib are playing a major role rebel factions allied to turkey hold a third of the twenty kilometer deep buffer zone but the rest is controlled by what the international community labels radical terrorist organizations because of their links to al qaida among those groups is a sham it controls the majority of the province and the planned zone and it has not officially declared whether it will withdraw its weapons and fighters by october the fifteenth regardless russia seems satisfied president vladimir putin said turkey is treating the agreement seriously and fulfilling its commitments but moscow is accusing the so-called radical groups of trying to create provocations to torpedo the deal. october ten and fifteen are deadlines for their deals
12:22 am
implementation russia's president vladimir putin is already calling the zone effective ruling out the military action near future. doesn't want an armed confrontation with turkey that's why it's afraid to publish the reject the deal it's still trying to reach a peaceful solution turkey wants to prevent armed conflict but it's challenge is to implement the deal but tension is growing between higher to hit a sham and turkey backed rebels there could be more incidents of armed confrontations if the so-called radical groups refused to cooperate turkey has signaled readiness to use force against those who don't comply. forces in libya have captured an al qaeda commander accused of masterminding a series of attacks in egypt. ashmawy was apprehended in a raid in the eastern town of derna by the egypt backed libyan national army

armont of the top stories here on out here are the world's leading climate scientists are warning of an environmental catastrophe unless urgent action is taken to tackle global warming they say rise above one and a half degrees celsius will lead to millions of people being affected by flooding heat waves and food shortages. far right candidate so narrow has won the first round of brazil's presidential election taking forty six percent of the vote he says he'll stick to the tough rhetoric in campaigning for the runoff vote on october the twenty eighth. and a reminder of our top story turkey's president has challenge saudi arabia to prove that journalist jamal khashoggi left the consulate in istanbul last tuesday. one says turkish officials are looking into question of trees disappearance fearing he
12:33 am
was murdered inside the building eurabia 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 summoned 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. the lady 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
12:34 am
about the consulate surveillance system the saudi consul general said the cameras didn't record so there's no video of 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 neither 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
12:35 am
istanbul in solidarity with their missing colleague and to denounce the saudi government if i thought that's a great find at the. sick reality of this crisis then the continued refusal by saudi arabia will cooperate towards the disclose of any information that would lead to subtrees whereabouts or well being is false proving them wrong. to stumble over the past few minutes u.s. president donald trump has commented on casualties case let's get more from guevara's own day he's in washington d.c. so what did the u.s. president have to say is said that he's concerned in these comments that he just made at the white house just a few minutes ago or significant because it's the first time that we've heard from president trump on the missing journalist since he has gone missing which is significant the white house has not commented on it the state department who we've reached out to multiple times has only said they cannot confirm reports that he
12:36 am
could be. dead and said they're just watching the situation very closely so the comments by trump that he just made a few minutes score very significant let's listen to a little bit more of what the president had to say at the white house. i am concerned about is i don't like hearing about it and hopefully that will sort itself out right now nobody knows anything about it but this is a pretty bad stories go around i do not like it. and what other reaction has there been in washington about the missing jet in this case. yeah he was very well known here in washington a very powerful circles because of his platform as a columnist for the washington post he was also a resident of the united states or is i should say and was a speaker at many different conferences and think tanks we have heard from senator lindsey graham a republican and close ally of president donald trump graham tweeted we agree if there was any truth to the allegation of wrongdoing by the saudi government it
12:37 am
would be devastating to the u.s. saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to be prayed economically and otherwise again that from senator lindsey graham a close ally of president donald trump and so you're starting to see with this tweet as well as a couple other tweets from significant democrats that are senators about this case as well that this is being watched very closely by lawmakers here in washington and . clearly they're wanting answers here it is on to thank you very much indeed. u.n. is painting for seventy million dollars in aid to help combat a severe drought in northwestern afghanistan has been no rain for months and crops have failed three million people have been forced to leave their homes but many now living in makeshift camps tony betty has been to one of the worst hit areas the province of bad case. in the barren in the hospitable terrain of northwestern
12:38 am
afghanistan life is a challenge at the best of times but the drought that to salvage this region has made survival even more difficult in the meadow about their intimate we haven't had rain here for nine months it's devastated our community. but luis province is said to be one of the worst affected in the district of cali nor more than one hundred twenty thousand people have arrived in this one area the lack of water cause their crops to fail so they abandon their homes in villages muhammad his wife and four children walked eight hours in search of water. not british and here we had nothing we couldn't stay near to man and it was hard we had no choice. un agencies are bringing in supplies but so many people are arriving at the camp they can't keep pace with the demand. the number is much much bigger than we expected and there are sources we have is even much less than what we expected so a woman talent is actually to get the necessary resources to the scale of the
12:39 am
response the un raised more than one hundred thirty two million dollars to tackle the emergency but that was based on estimations made months ago now the number of displaced people has swelled to more than three million and another seventy million dollars at least is needed this emergency is now into its fifth month and still these people are not receiving the humanitarian aid they desperately need a cold winter is approaching and that will make a critical situation even worse unless help comes quickly so you can see from some of the shelter around when people are basically. out in the open now that's fine when it's twenty eight twenty nine degrees centigrade during the day and only. fifteen at night but soon temperatures will be subzero here and people will die. funds could take weeks to get through and the pull of this camp don't have decent shelter sufficient food or time. many children are showing signs of acute and
12:40 am
moderate malnutrition winter is just a few weeks away these basic shelters will offer little protection in temperatures which can drop to as low as minus ten degrees and many people complain that the afghan government has done little to help but the local government says the huge number of displaced people is putting a strain on resources. we are giving one million liters of water a day and our water table has dropped to thirty meters at this rate we will have no water within six months the international agencies need to get people back to their homes and feed and water them there in an area with significant taliban presence that plan depends on money and security no one can promise either for now the struggle for survival for drought victims goes on tony berkeley al-jazeera province northwest afghanistan a search for earthquake and tsunami victims on the indonesian island of pseudo ways is to end officially on thursday almost two thousand people are confirmed dead and
12:41 am
thousands more remain missing in some of the worst affected areas and others life is slowly returning to normal when hay has more from. there are some signs of normal life restarting here after the earthquake and tsunami electricity food and fuel were largely unavailable for days after the disaster now supplies are arriving in parts of piled allowing some economic activity to get going again. we only reopened so we could help people get food easily even during the radiance are still difficult to get in because we are spared from these aster we feel like we have a duty to help other people when indonesia's president joko widodo visited affected areas last week he said restarting the economy was one of the priorities which people remain afraid of more earthquakes but the removed from what's left of their homes others are returning having fled when disaster struck on some streets there
12:42 am
