traumatized by war. as they struggle to get their lives back shelter. a turkish newspaper identifies them and police want to question about the disappearance of saudi journalist jamal khashoggi. from doha also coming up police in germany detain a suspect over the killing of a bowl garion jobless. u.s. ambassador to the u.n. nikki haley announces she's resigning off to fit eighteen months in the job. and afghanistan is changing the way it deals with children accused of fighting with the
11:01 am
taliban. the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi was killed at his country's consulate in istanbul on the highest orders of the saudi government that's according to reports out of the united states the new york times article cites a senior turkish official has been missing for a week this is him entering the saudi consulate the last time he was seen alive and new pictures have emerged showing some of the fifteen saudi nationals whom police suspect may have been involved in these disappearance the images have been on the turkish state television network. of the men at the airport in istanbul text media reports say the group flew to stumble on two private planes on the ends of the consulate the same day the journalist was. that speech there and she joins
11:02 am
us from outside of the saudi consulate in istanbul as we're getting more images of these fifteen men what do we know about who they are what they did. well according to turkish media who publish their pictures their names their date of birth and their specific movements and as you mentioned there are now c.c.t.v. footage being aired on turkish media showing them at the airport showing them outside here outside the doors of the saudi called. leaving in various cars again none of that this is officially confirmed but sources are saying that they believe some of these men were also involved in the saudi security forces like the davis about which is a turkish paper going as far as to say one of them was an autopsy expert now we've had a couple of leaks overnight in various publications including the new york times and the washington post the new york times going as far as to say that those men were
11:03 am
waiting inside that. entered killed within a two hour period and more gruesome details saying that his body was dismembered by a bone soul that the group again none of this is being backed up by evidence which is why it's so complicated it's also an incredibly loaded political story but when you look at that footage that's being issued just come out in the last hour or so of the c.c.t.v. it also shows really harrowing picture. fiance just outside here standing behind the gates waiting for him because of course he went into there is a second visit in a week he went back to finalize divorce papers he previous been married in saudi arabia he wanted to marry his fiance and under turkish will to do that you have to prove that you're not married so this is why he was going in there he had been called back by the saudis also interesting we just briefly a report in the new york times saying that u.s. intelligence intercepted conversations between saudi officials previously talking
11:04 am
about an effort to kidnap let's say the saudis it's unclear whether he was ever warned of those those reports of those intelligence reports and certainly still an incredibly concerning situation a lot of allegations none of it at the moment backed up by ever. it's eight days on here at maine's missing and absolutely just to remind staff to take us back to the beginning will binds us why it might be a target for the saudi authorities. when he left saudi arabia around a year ago self-imposed exile really in the sense he was concerned about his safety because he was becoming more vocal against the policies of the saudi crown prince mohammed bin cited bad he had over the last year or so because one of the main editorial contributors to the washington post of course a major major respected u.s. publication who's based in washington and criticizing policies of the crown prince criticizing the direction that saudi arabia is taking regardless of you know there
11:05 am
being a platform of reform so to speak that the crown prince is keen to administer to publicize that say that there is actually a far more clamp down when it comes to freedom of expression just recently i showed you was also quoted he was talking to b.b.c. radio saying how concerned he was that people that were even close to the saudi royal courts were being arrested not because they were dissidents so to speak but just because they had a different opinion of how their country should be run and what direction it should be going in so many people will tell you that this is a crucial change that is coming from the top leadership inside riyadh about targeting voices that don't really fall in line with moves that policies of mohamed bin so that might again having said all this we need to put a cap yet in place laura nothing has been backed up by evidence at the moment all these things are need by senior turkish officials whether it's in turkish media or in the u.s. media also that is because ankara doesn't have come out officially on camera on any
11:06 am
point backing up these claims there and that's because this is such a loaded political story so again we're just going to wait and see if we will have any evidence at some point backing up these horrendous claims absolutely it will indeed stephanie decker reporting that from istanbul thanks very much stephanie. well roger shanahan is a research fellow with the larry institute for international policy he joins us live via skype from sydney good to have you with us all these leaks that a coming out and it's more and more every day what point do the turkish and the saudi governments have to a good knowledge this and address set you know yes it would point you can't keep on telling people they were investigating an incident without coming up with any concrete evidence that at a very minimum the amount of close circuit television our resources around the medicare issue. show you left the
11:07 am
consulate as a series crime but in the absence of any kind of. evidence to show that then they have to come up with an alternate explanation so i think we're getting in the next few days to the point where somebody has to show a results of an investigation or some video evidence of exactly what occurred why do you think turkish authorities are taking their time over this i mean they clearly want the story to come out to pressure saudi arabia but we're hearing president keeping very tight lipped about is this because they want a chance for back tunnels to work their cause i mean what is the reason here. you know isn't this probably one of those those issues that national leaders have to face because they rather not face accusations that saudi arabia who encourage like to invest in the economy which is not doing particularly well but at the same time
11:08 am
president of iran is on the opposite side of the dispute with qatar so this is a very loaded issue for our president of iran especially scott two issues yes a deal with one. a very. exhaustive investigation into exactly what occurred so as far as it is possible to know the events surrounding the disappearance of jamal khashoggi and then exactly what he does with that in order to advance its interests. to hopefully shine a light on saudi activities not to do it in such a way that the relationship with their riyadh will be terminated what it has significance of releasing these fifteen face days of saudi nationals who are reportedly suspected to be involved in all this while any of these men actually be arrested. well it's unlikely extreme given that they're
11:09 am
all out of the country so. with you know if he surely has disappeared or even worse sane think you will. then the people who. was in itself one too probably postulate there are two reasons for that one they want to embarrass. secondly once the names and faces rather they're in a response it really constrains or ability to loose area right here so it's probably punitive as well as trying to send a message to reality ok roger and i will leave it there thanks very much taking the time to join us there from say welcome to fiance had to change angus has made a public plea to the u.s. writing in the washington post she says at this time i implore president trump and first lady maloney a trump to help shed light on jamal's disappearance saudi arabia especially king
11:10 am
solomon and probably prince bahama been salmond to say the same level of sensitivity and really c.c.t.v. footage from the consulate general he she says is a valuable person an exemplary thinker and a courageous man who's been fighting for his principles i don't know how i can keep living if he was abducted or killed in turkey when the u.s. government has demanded a full investigation into his disappearance but there are growing calls in washington also for firm action against saudi arabia alan fisher has more. one week on since the disappearance of american resident jamal khashoggi in istanbul and the u.s. is still chasing answers i know nothing right and i know what everybody else knows nothing the u.s. state department insists it is pressuring the saudis were not going to make any judgments about what had happened to him the united states is certainly concerned about his whereabouts a senior officials at the state department have spoken with saudi officials through
11:11 am
diplomatic channels about the matter we call on the government of saudi arabia to conduct a thorough trant and transparent investigation at a washington conference discussing come to events in saudi arabia concerned for the journalist disappearance bubbled under the surface one human rights activist says the u.s. must take much stronger action than just expressing concern i'd like to see the u.s. demand that the saudis produce them and if they can't produce some produce the detailed explanation including documentation c.c.t.v. footage whatever is necessary to demonstrate what did happen to him. donald trump has forged close links with saudi arabia his first foreign trip was to the kingdom when he entertained crown prince mohammed bin salman at the white house he boasted of significant arm sales he wants the saudis to help bring in iran's regional ambitions and to sell any white house middle east peace plan to the palestinians but politicians on both sides are more shinton see if what the turks are seeing is true and can should you was murdered in the consulate in istanbul the now has to be
11:12 am
a significant change to us so the relations as elected leader we stand with you in the media in solidarity to making sure that this does not go unnoticed if this is true of the saudi regime murdered murdered journalist critic in their own consulate there must be a culpability and there must be an unequivocal condemnation by the united states one middle east expert says any change has to be well thought out but i do think it needs a retail operation or you. i think a very strong unequivocal message needs to be sent to riyadh that there are consequences for these kind of actions and that american support is not unconditional there's growing pressure on the saudis to come up with answers about what actually happened in istanbul and if they don't there's a growing number of politicians in the united states who see that most significantly changed the relationship between the two countries alan fischer

11:19 am
she wants a break from public life and has ruled out running against trump in the twenty twenty presidential elections mike hanna reports from the united nations. many in the security council disagreed with the policies that the us representative championed again but during eighteen months at the un nikki haley engendered a great deal of respect forming warm personal relationships with those she supported as well as those she so forcibly opposed the secretary general had a truly very good working relationship with her they worked. to get through some of the toughest moments i think between the u.s. and the u.n. some diplomat said privately spoken about haleigh's loss of influence within the trumpet ministration in particular following the appointment of mike pump aoa secretary of state and former u.n. ambassador john bolton as national security adviser but president trump says
11:20 am
discussion with haley about her possible resignation had started as long as six months ago and unlike other members who left his administration he keeps open the possibility of her rejoining it we're all happy for you in one way but we hate to lose hopefully you'll be coming back at some point but if you want to just be a different capacity you can maybe pick if are all in here that are going to ask about twenty twenty no i'm not running for twenty twenty i can't promise you when i'll be doing is campaigning for this one so i look forward to supporting the president in the next elections the question now who's going to be the next ambassador to head up the u.s. mission just over the road president trump says he'll announce a successor in the next two to three weeks possibly even sooner signaling that he wants to make the announcement before those crucial midterm elections in just under a month well dana certainly a person i would consider as she is under consideration and the president's daughter ivanka i think of our good being granted all that doesn't mean that you
11:21 am
know what i think or because good beer cues of no business. even though i'm not sure there's anybody more confident in the world but that's ok but. but we are lucky that numerous people the discussion put on hold as the president has yet another campaign rally to attend my kind of al-jazeera united nations. the mystery surrounding the disappearance of jamal khashoggi has again brought attention to the plight of journalists around the world nicaragua is no exception that the profession has become more dangerous in recent months as our money repeller reports from. assaults harassment and death threats have come to characterize the working conditions for many independent journalists and. may be might have been there yet but what we have a video journalist in managua recalls the moment he was shot in the arm was covering an anti-government demonstration only one batter. i tried to stand and
11:22 am
couldn't contract and couldn't feel it i mediately thought the worst. moments after being shot other journalists rushed to winston's aid and drove him to a private hospital. winston says most of his colleagues have also been the targets of attacks. is winston's boss and the founder of one hundred percent news he says that since the unrest began threats against his staff haven't stopped said but only thing being a journalist today is a matter of life and death. we've been harassed shot at angry mobs sent by the government to intimidate us at one point you are under siege unable to leave the building for several days and we need only a few minutes last april in the city of laon a radio station known for being critical of the government who set on fire with journalist still inside. us for the flames are so big they burst through the front

11:27 am
this is a former women's prison at bottom bagging kabul it's been turned into a juvenile rehabilitation center housing children the government says fought with the taliban we can't identify the children all start because they fear reprisals but the boys have either been charged or convicted of a range of activities including planting roadside explosive devices and attempted suicide bombing offenses they all deny mohammed is sixteen and he's serving a five year sentence for possessing a roadside bomb he says he was framed by family and his and claims he has no connection with the taliban. i have nothing to do with the taliban bad people paid the police to frame me but i did nothing. this type of facility is the first of its kind in the country it houses thirty four detainees age from twelve to seventeen and they are part of a new strategy by the afghan government to move from previous harsh detention
11:28 am
conditions to a new more compassionate approach aimed at winning hearts and minds. we try and reverse the taliban brainwashing we are also using some of the same techniques but they only explain to the kids one side and we explain through education both sides and try to tell them that everything that they've been told is not true. once these were cells and now their classrooms boys are taught to read and write here and given an education they otherwise wouldn't get is designed to show what life is like away from taliban control in many ways they are more fortunate than children detained in other parts of the country. i am studying them getting to know all about good things now when i am released i will continue with my life. to marchmont aware that some of the juvenile centers have reasonable living conditions but we get reports of abuse in some of them because of a lack of education there is not violence and sexual abuse from orland officials
11:29 am
say these methods are proving successful in eighty percent of cases but some would argue that the inmates have no choice but to comply but there are no guarantees that once they leave here they won't succumb to the pressures and circumstances that lead them here in the first place. lack of food in prospects can be a driving force behind a young boy's thinking and with the dye conditions in many parts of rural afghanistan it will not be difficult for the taliban to find willing recruits there are concerns if these new government methods don't work these teenagers could pose a threat in the future not only in afghanistan but also other countries to the. suicide attacks are global threat not just took down a stand and if we don't stop them here then they can happen in other countries as we have seen. it's hard to imagine watching them play volleyball that these boys' lives have been so marred by violence like many others they've lost more than their freedom they have also lost their youth tony berkeley al-jazeera kabul harker
