12:00 am
al-jazeera. hello i maryanne demasi this is the news hour live from london coming up in the next sixty minutes we're going to get to the bottom of that and there will be severe punishment strong words from the u.s. president over the disappearance of the saudi journalist. back in the usa the american pastor freed by turkey meets president at the white house. and mourning in uganda after a landslide flattens villages killing dozens of people.
12:01 am
who are with a sport as roger federer goes down in shanghai up ahead of the flu two hundred seaborne a choice all of the base of his knees are. u.s. president donald trump vowed to severely punished saudi arabia if the kingdom is found to be behind the disappearance of jamal khashoggi a veteran journalist was last seen entering the saudi consulate in istanbul eleven days ago said he was pessimistic about fate but ruled out sanctions that would impact one hundred ten billion dollar u.s. saudi arms deal. i would like to do something where we could maybe. look at other things i will tote the senators because that's a tremendous order for our companies it's a tremendous order for really from an economic development standpoint you look at
12:02 am
texas has a big chunk of it almost all of our states are involved in that order so i actually think would be punishing ourselves if we did it there are other things we can do that are very very powerful very strong and we'll do that now as of this moment nobody knows what happened as of this moment you know we're looking into it very seriously turkey is looking into it. at a very high level at the highest level at this point it's looking like it's looking like. he perhaps would be or is it around and that's very sad i think we would have known by now that was our first hope our first crop was that he was not killed but maybe that's. not looking is not looking too good right from what we hear. so let's get the latest now from john henry he joins us live from washington where he might a valid severe punishment for saudi arabia if the u.s.
12:03 am
concludes saudi agents did kill khashoggi john but the message from the u.s. at the moment is not to expect measures anytime soon. that's right president trump is really amped up his rhetoric on this before all he was really willing to say was that he didn't want to sacrifice that arms deal that to put this in context this is about is difficult for a president trump as it is for saudi arabia since one nine hundred thirty three when the two countries developed diplomatic relations with each other there's been a kind of special relationship and that has grown tighter under george w. bush than under obama but perhaps not ever as close at least visually is it has been under trump who made saudi arabia his first visit outside of the country met with king salmon and then of course negotiated that arms deal he calls it a one hundred ten billion dollars arms deal but that's how do you have not committed to quite that much yet so it remains to be seen what will become of that but that is probably the strongest cudgel he has to wield against saudi arabia
12:04 am
there are a lot of other options there is this upcoming investment summit in riyadh that what they're calling davos in the desert and a number of people are pulling out of the united states government isn't participating formally in that the president did say that he was inviting g.'s fiance to the white house the bad press that comes from that will of course do exactly what it upset saudi arabia about the shoji in the first place so that will of course be something he can do in a very small way but otherwise he could intervene in the gulf crisis but there aren't really that many options he was specifically asked about what it was that he could do and he deferred to an aide and did not ever really answer that question but there there are a number of there are a limited number of things that he can do and those would also affect the united states in a negative way marry him. all right thank you very much john hendren with all the latest on that from washington meanwhile turkish sources say they have proof the
12:05 am
veteran saudi journalist was murdered inside the compound they say the claim is based on a recording from the apple watch khashoggi was wearing when he entered the consulate charles stratford explains. pro-government turkish media say it has proof that jamal khashoggi was murdered by a saudi hit squad that proof it says is a recording made using an apple watch which the journalist was wearing on the day he entered the saudi consulate in istanbul turkey government sources told al-jazeera the watch was sinks to his phone which he left with his fiance who waited for him outside the watch can only record audioboo the recording so say turkish government sources is clear enough to establish the her soldier was murdered inside the consulate but technology experts doubt that the watch could have recorded audioboo evidence in this case i wouldn't say unbelievable there's a few technical challenges a few potential issues with this narrative it's not immediately consistent with the
12:06 am
story and what we know the details. but the technology is capable of creating a lot of territory and it's also designed to synchronize it's designed to try to find access point and connect so it's not out of the realm of possibility so there are still questions about exactly how the turkish authorities obtained the audioboo evidence saudi arabia has called the allegations a baseless lies or friday the kingdom to spanish king solomon's top advisor prince khalid al faisal who met the turkish president received over to want to try and find a way out of this crisis turkey is pushing saudi arabia to allow a joint team access into the consulate to conduct an investigation of the suspected murder scene speculation will continue to grow as to what exactly happened in the building behind me until solid evidence is released that some sources in the
12:07 am
turkish government and the turkish media say proves he was murdered the turkish government has yet to release a formal statement on a crisis that is fast becoming a major deal. mattick issue with huge ramifications for saudi arabia on the world stage stratford al-jazeera istanbul. which militia has more on the diplomatic efforts of the saudi delegation from outside the consulate in istanbul. this by this high profile delegation dispatched by saudi king solomon headed by one of his top advisers prince khaled face on arriving in turkey on friday there's still be no statements about what exactly is the objective of this delegation and what they will try and achieve because there have been questions raised as to whether this is a political delegation trying to find a solution to this crisis with turkey or is it one as has been told to the media that is going to be part of the investigation and if so turkey already has said
12:08 am
that it knows the results of this investigation it claims that it has the evidence and has shared the evidence with the united states that actual she was assassinated in the consulate now on saturday turkey's foreign minister for another time expressed his government's frustration at the lack of cooperation from the saudis which is a surprise to some because it would have appeared that riyadh in ankara had reached some sort of program or workflow or an at least a basic agreement hence the arrival of this delegation however according to the foreign minister as well as other officials one of the main points of contention from the target is that they have still not been given access by the saudis to search and to inspect the. consulates behind me on top of that they would also like access to the consul generals home as well as several vehicles that are registered to the diplomatic mission here internationally speaking there's been word from donald trump he says that there will be
12:09 am
a huge price to pay if indeed it is established that the saudis ordered the assassination of factually that is going to embolden turkey's position that has been the charts have been looking for some sort of international consensus in order to establish what they will do as a result of what they say is the killing of democracy which are behind me eleven days have gone by since he entered the building behind me not to come out ironically or interesting really enough such a day was to be the sixtieth birth. the his fiance tweeted that she had planned for a surprise dinner for him she was going to invite some of his closest friends that's obviously hasn't happened and it's a stark reminder that away from the politics away from the diplomacy this is very much a human story about a journalist who went to the consulates behind me never to be seen again well the international press institute's daoud kuttab says khashoggi case demonstrates just how much independent journalism is under threat. well there we are worried about
12:10 am
the chilling effect that all these disappearances and killings and imprisonment have you know general is not known as an opposition figure is not known as being an activist he's known as a journalist i think leaders around the world especially autocratic leaders watch carefully the white house and the press president when the president of the us says that the journalism are the enemies of the people that kind of music to their ears and they feel that they get a green light or yellow light for america to do what they want on their own journalist everybody is trying to find a way out they're trying to find a way to save face to try to kind of explain this and certainly one way to do that would be to. keep mohamed bits out of man out of the picture and the king and try to find somebody to blame this problem on i think it's going to be very difficult because everybody knows how close mohammed bin cell man has been to the americans
12:11 am
and how close he has been to. a position to the press critics around the world i've written to some of my friends in the washington post and asked them to dedicate the same space and time in that the germ out it was getting hopefully we can find him one day but if he is no longer around with us that the same face he was getting should be given to independent journalists from saudi arabia and the arab world to make sure that leaders around the world understand that by getting one person to disappear will not make the truth disappear and i think journalists there washington post new york times and other journalists around the world and other media outlets have a responsibility to make sure that the truth comes out and that people who have different opinions are allowed to speak their minds without having to worry about somebody making them disappear. well u.s. president or trump says the release of american pastor andrew bronson from turkish detention is a tremendous step towards better relations between washington and korea trump met
12:12 am
bronson at the white house off the pass to flew in from turkey via germany it was released by ankara on friday being despite being sentenced on terrorism offenses trampas thank turkish president. for bronson's release says the move was an independent one by the turkish judiciary mike hanna is live for us now in washington and mike it has been a difficult confrontational relationship in recent times how might pastor bronson's release affect the relationship between the u.s. and turkey now. well president trump says he hopes that it is the beginning of better relations between the u.s. and turkey this diplomatic spat has meant major ramifications for turkey in particular economic ramifications the sanctions that the u.s. government imposed on turkey came at a time when the turkish currency was dropping badly so certainly there was a major impact no discussion yet as to when or whether these sanctions are going to
12:13 am
be lifted but president trump making very clear that he hopes that the relationship now improves an interesting exercise in twitter diplomacy there with president trump making clear that the decision to the release did not come out to some kind of behind the scenes deal president earlier one stating that it was up to the court to take its decision the government was not bowing into pressure from the united states so both leaders making quite clear their position on why this release happened well this comes at a time as we know of the disappearance soft the of the journalist who is still a centerpiece of what is happening in turkey and certainly a centerpiece of concern for the u.s. administration but president trump was asked about this was there anything to do between his disappearance and this deal suddenly being concluded president trump said no it's a complete coincidence sometimes these things happen like this but clearly the
12:14 am
agreement between the u.s. and turkey could lead to an improvement of relations between the countries and certainly clears the decks as it were allows each country to concentrate on that massive crisis the disappearance of. my canner in washington thank you. for the more still ahead on this news hour from london we explained why a green search could see the party make significant gains in germany's most conservative state. in chile and coming up i'll tell you the latest developments in the largest clerical sex abuse investigation in latin american history. and in sports frank is veteran does the damage against england before the weather stop him short he will be here with more.

12:39 am
those costs but a government whistle blowers told our jazeera that many expenses may not be eligible for grants and the taxpayer might have to pick up the bill johnson reports from a refugee camp in the last boss. this is how asylum seekers do their laundry inside moria camp on the greek island of lesbos this waste water has become the subject of an intense political battle the nearest sewage treatment plant to moria is four kilometers away there's no pipeline connecting the camp to it so tanker trucks shuttled back and forth it's one of a number of services now part of a lawsuit launched by the head of the reception and identification service which runs moria and other camps and the last spoke to al jazeera about why he's blowing the whistle on migration related contracts and so-called fast track funding the publisher cover fears about why i can go directly to interested parties i can come to you and make a deal without revealing too much information to others fast track funding began in
12:40 am
twenty fifteen at the height of the refugee crisis but openness believes it's harder to justify now the government applies for you money after it's already awarded contracts for work and services and it could be months before it finds out if the e.u. is going to pay when a particular expense is not selected for funding it through the to the state budget in our case it means when a funding request is rejected it's paid by greek taxpayers it's my impression that as some of the about ten million euros worth of funding claims made and dismissed is like catering sewage treatment and others al-jazeera has found fast track orders which bypass normal competitive bidding and to sign catering and housing contracts directly to individual companies and nongovernmental organizations these can involve substantial amounts of money this ten day contract to feed more than eight thousand people in moria is worth half a million dollars assigned directly to a local consortium it does not state where the money will come from and the greek
12:41 am
taxpayer could end up with the bill in the last four years the european union has allocated one point eight billion dollars to greece in compensation for migration related costs. such as food sheltering and search and rescue what is unknown to the greek taxpayer is how much the government has spent through emergency procedures that aren't eligible for you funding and there are hidden costs to this way of doing business the regional governor says she's been asking for moria to be connected to the sewage treatment plant for two years in me not connecting morea to it leads to the sewage being dumped in the surrounding dry river beds we have been forced in the interests of public health and the environment to impose fines of fifty thousand and eighty thousand euros on the migration ministry because the water table is being contaminated the ultimate cost though is borne by the asylum seekers themselves it is they who have to live with the smell of dumped sewage and
