secretary of state is asking saudi arabia to support a thorough investigation into disappearance. reports from washington submitted because i don't want saudi journalist jamal khashoggi has been missing for a week and for the first time u.s. president donald trump has addressed it and he's not happy i am concerned about it i don't like hearing about it and hopefully that will sort itself out right now nobody knows anything about it but there's a pretty bad stories going around i do not like that the u.s. government has mostly remained silent on reports saudi arabia might have murdered. saudi arabia denies any involvement late monday vice president mike pence tweeted deeply troubled to hear reports about saudi arabian journalist jamal khashoggi if true this is a tragic day by incidents journalists across the globe is a threat to freedom of the press and human rights the free world deserves answers
11:04 am
the outspoken journalist was a u.s. resident and well known in the halls of power here in washington from his big platform as a columnist at the washington post where his writing was often very critical of saudi arabia's government particularly crown prince mohammed bin solomon to show his disappearance now as many people in this city demanding answers i think it's very disturbing. it's very unnerving we just need to get clear facts from both governments senator lindsey graham tweeted we agree if there was any truth to the allegations of wrongdoing by the saudi government it would be devastating to the u.s. saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to pay economically and otherwise he means that there's going to be reexamined nation of the relationship of aid by the military by the united states on military sales to the saudi government and there's going to be once again a distance between the united states and that government it's now clear washington
11:05 am
has joined the chorus of coals to saudi arabia for answers on the growing international scandal his disappearance gave rosendo how does it go washington. well the un is also raising concern for jay and other journalists who are coming under attack we're very concerned about a number of recent cases of reports cases and reports of violence against journalists. including the murder of victoria marie nova in bulgaria the disrepute of disappearance of jamal. both publicly and privately the secretary general has often raised this issue with member states the secretary general's position is clear a free press is essential for peace justice and human rights for all he reiterated his call it all governments to strengthen press freedom including ensuring that there is justice in me countability for crimes committed against journalists let's
11:06 am
not speak to there is. following this story for us from istanbul he joins us now live let's start with the latest jemaah is now seen the last image of jemaah as he entered the saudi consulate last tuesday why has it taken so long first of all for this picture to be released. willfully as we've been saying from the beginning when we're missing seven days ago now the initial response that appeared to be the favored route that the turks were taking was to try and be a bit silence initially and find a way out of this by dealing with the saudis through kind of back channels and diplomatic routes that seems to have been to no avail the saudis have not been forthcoming in providing any information fact they doubled down and said that they have no idea where jamal khashoggi isn't even tried to claim at some point that he had left the building twenty minutes after entering and it was up to the turks to find him so what the terms of the now is they've said well here is
11:07 am
a still from entering we've now established categorically that he entered the saudi consulates the ball is now firmly in the saudis courts to prove that he existed obviously this comes just. a short time after the saudis bizarrely claim that even though the consulate was equipped with c.c.t.v. camera or entrances and exits that these cameras didn't record on that day and therefore they have no images of it so the idea i think it's very clear now especially also when we look take into consideration the tone of president richard early on when he was speaking on monday the turks are losing patience with the saudis there is a growing demand here and around the world to hear about what happened to jamal and that's why they released this picture right end after almost a week we're now hearing from from other governments from the u.s. and other western governments how might an international pressure impact
11:08 am
investigation will it make a difference. well this is this is the thing i mean if people for that maybe this was going to go on this was going to go under the radar it's become very apparent that the audacity of trying to do something like this has really resonated not only in terms of the press corps around the world but also now we're seeing governments forcing force to talk about it because it is a matter of public interest as a matter of public interest because he was a journalist as a matter of public interest because consulates are meant to be diplomatic places where you go and process things not true killed or kidnapped in iraq and therefore there is that concern that's forcing that how that's going to impact i think now the reason a lot of a very big spotlight on the saudis that they need to come forth with on sers the turks themselves who have been told by for example my parents the vice president of the u.s. and others that they should also give information i have so far and some information
11:09 am
at least they've. shown that the responsibility isn't on them that the did enter the saudi territory i.e. the consulate in istanbul and therefore this growing pressure i think is true for saudi and one last question before we let you go the washington post for which jamal khashoggi has been writing for is reporting that his fiance is being a question by turkish police do you know any more about that what exactly are they looking for right now the police interrogator. i think they're looking for any possible leads that could help them questioning that issue within the in the realm of a suspect who would be more sort of established right and he sorts of information i was having a discussion with some of the journalists earlier today one of them pointed to an important fact to charge for example may not have any of their minds d.n.a. on record and therefore they would be looking for something like that would they
11:10 am
would need in the in the hands of this is the saudis and some or and that was living in the u.s. you hadn't done any maybe medical treatments you're in is the bill that would have allowed for that so those are where the questions are going right now the trying to get as much information as possible in order to establish things further ok thank you for that tamala shi'a live for us in istanbul an investigative web site has revealed more details about the second suspect behind the poisoning of russian double agent sega scrape in the u.k. belling cat says russian dr alexander meskin traveled to solves very using a different name it says michigan is employed by russia's intelligence agency the u.k. accuses him and a man identified by the website as anatoly chip leader of trying to kill script and his daughter would be nerve agents know the chalk in march. brazil's far right presidential candidate. says he won't be toning down his

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. still ahead on al-jazeera suffering in silence the less obvious cause for palestinians trying to fight against israeli occupation.
