2:00 am
founds. this is al jazeera. alonzo raman you're watching the al-jazeera news our live my headquarters here in doha coming up in the next sixty minutes a source tells al-jazeera turkish investigators have evidence that missing journalist jamal khashoggi was killed inside the saudi consulate. saudi is considering issuing a statement that she was killed in iraq during an interrogation gone wrong that's according to u.s. media. also the largest group in syria's province. put in a buffer zone despite of withdrawal deadline set by turkey and russia. predictions of a race of superhumans on the colonization of foreign planets seven months after its
2:01 am
death stephen hawking makes waves with the release of his final fall. into the news are a source from the turkish attorney general's office has told al jazeera that they found evidence that missing saudi journalist jamal khashoggi was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul turkish investigators were finally allowed into the building thirteen days after cheez disappearance earlier a saudi team into the compound in what's being billed as a joint investigation u.s. media reports say saudi arabia is weighing whether to release a statement that he was killed as a result of an interrogation that went wrong the saudis reportedly plan to sell the operation was carried out without official clearance saudi media say the kingdom will interview those who were mention. didn't take each media as suspects in the
2:02 am
case all this comes as the u.s. secretary of state might pompei was on his way to riyadh to discuss the journalist's disappearance with the saudi king well jamal rochelle joins me now from istanbul where he's live outside the saudi consulate. where are we really with the statements about sort of the potential initial findings from the investigative team we're also held the turkey that's like as attorney general's office as told al jazeera exclusively a few hours ago that there seem over investigators are start doing an initial sweep profile areas inside the consulate behind me that they are covered evidence that supports the very believe that the the saudi journalist went to that building almost two weeks ago was indeed murdered killed inside the consulate. now they also added that the evidence that they uncovered seems to have been tampered with
2:03 am
possibly even an attempt to get rid of it or destroy it this comes after the turkish investigators finally and that's building that is thirteen days of the german officials had gone missing in that period of time obviously the saudi officials themselves have been able to go in and out of that building as and when they please we even sold bizarrely enough so he'll just a few hours before the turkish investigators answer the cleaning team and search that building with you know bottles of bleach of the cleaning product which was very strange considering that's we that this scene is meant to be a crime scene. and they were then photo by the the saudi contingent to what has been billed as a joint task force and joint investigation team but obviously at least their arrival didn't seem to be instinct with the turkish side of this joint stars
2:04 am
because they can so why was before the target nonetheless around seven fifteen local time some fifteen pm local time and we saw these. police vehicles large round that is used for serious crime investigation units to go there with the deputy. attorney general of istanbul as well as the deputy attorney general of turkey who are leading this investigation they've arrived through all their forensic experts and they're still there are so hell they've been there for several hours now and we expect that they will be there for a few hours more at least indeed we seem to be really in uncharted territory jim we've never really seen anything like this happen in recent time so the next steps for the investigators will be closely watched but also for the diplomats and the politicians of both turkey and in saudi because there have been these you might say be behind the scenes. behind closed doors conversations with very important
2:05 am
individuals trying to work out a way of informing the international public and capitals who are watching what's going on in istanbul exactly what happened and how perhaps saudi could even get out of it. uncharted territories is exactly where we are in that once we are in so hill on so many different levels for us you're talking about the vienna. agreements that dictates how diplomatic missions are dealt with that is something that has been around for decades which is really being brought into question because of the fact that the turks wanted to enter this building oversleep you can't answer a diplomatic mission without the approval of diplomatic missions countries so the turks have tried to respect that as much as possible before entering but the fact that you have this investigation unit now going again searching wanting even to question the consul general himself in route were with regards to the disappearance
2:06 am
and believe person of the murder of jamal officially that in itself is something to watch but as you mentioned this is so much bigger than the disappearance of the murder of. maybe as bad as that sounds because that in itself is a huge issue a journalist who went in to get some paperwork never to go out again this is about turkish side of the relationship this is about us. saudi relationship this is about billions of dollars of arms the old this is about billions of dollars of trade this is about geopolitics this is about the standing of saudi arabia the future of the crown prince mohammed bin said a man who has built himself as the reformer order of that is in the balance and when you think about that you think about the idea of. countries in you know multinational corporations in interest groups and billions and billions of dollars and armies and arms sales really order of that is in the balance you cannot
2:07 am
overstate how significant it is i'm not so why unfortunately it would seem that even though the investigators are doing their work here but this idea of what's happened maybe we won't be getting all of the truth because of all those interest groups that have a stake in this indeed much more to be unveiled i'm sure and revealed much later for the moment of all things. but charles trafford has also been outside the saudi consulate in istanbul all day and watched the investigators go in. almost two weeks after jamal khashoggi was last seen entering the saudi consulate in istanbul the investigative team arrives but only one part of it. saudi investigators appeared in the late off the nude alone without that counterparts. around an hour and a half later after the world's media were pushed back from the barricades by
2:08 am
turkish police the turkish investigators arrived wearing white over rules they were hustled into the alleged crime scene presumably the saudis cleaned everything weird . chlorine or who knows what i would i would look at the drain pipes and i look at all of the belongings of the members of the staff who comicon the world leaders want us and the ramifications of the results of this investigation have potentially serious implications for relations between saudi arabia and the world john strafford al jazeera istanbul well i'm joined now by their a senior political analyst bashara in london when we have the secretary of state of the u.s. heading towards riyadh to listen to a saudi narrative that no one seems to believe at the moment from a can kingdom controlled by two men who have a total grip on power and people are now sort of suggesting the analysts and the
2:09 am
contributors we've had to al-jazeera saying surely it's inconceivable that they wouldn't have known what was going on it's very secure. it's very true because there are there are precedents and there is a certain system in place within the kingdom and there's been countless examples of how this has been a hands on route within the kingdom especially since the quite ambitious quite active indeed the hyper active crown prince took over and not only did he just to go over one two three four five two ca's he basically took over all the faucets of all thought of these in the kingdom starting being minister of defense launching the war against yemen then becoming the crown crown prince then becoming the crown prince great thing and you did walk will with its neighbor. cut and
2:10 am
then running or managing a major crackdown a crackdown within within the kingdom against his own cousins and various pillars of authority within the kingdom again and do more to depok goals like with canada and so forth ending up with success a nation and let's order mind ourselves that how much incentive money is also in charge of the saudi intelligence so here you have the person who's in charge of oil economy intelligence the religious establishment as well as the military. not knowing what happens in his own consulate after sending two teams there and the next day denying all of knowing what happened or that he did it he says he did not leave the consulate of course none of that is believable but what's what's the worst part about it is that as it unravels this is like life imitating fiction except it's a bad fiction this is a bad novel a bad thriller
2:11 am
a bad mystery because the actor does not the culpable does not lie well does not hide his crime well all the lies are transparent and the stories keep changing and things from a bully. i think them back again so really it's a quite a messy story that continues to unravel and indeed fascinate the world we've just moved today in particular from a tragedy to a tragic comedy no one believes anything that's coming out of riyadh indeed if we if we also sort of perhaps take a power look at what has been done if this is a targeted killing a targeted murder what sort of message now is being sent to ex-pats saudis around the world who are critical or even analytical to the detriment of the royal kingdom thinking because in another way you could say that saudi is
2:12 am
sending a message that if you deal with us like this if you criticize the the royal regime then this is what could happen to you and we don't care where you are in the world you know so that's why. after all of the debacle i just mentioned that after countless deaths in yemen. but i saw these and others involved in that war why is this very particular question of. turn the tables against saudi arabia why is the killing of one journalist has curtis so much havoc and so much blowback towards the could well let me tell you something about us about us in the media because here we are not just covering the story. we are the story we in journalism one of our own apparently has been killed and perhaps dismembered in the consulate of his own country so this is really
2:13 am
a thought a good thing all of us out that journalists who you know tens of us in each and every country of the middle east have been imprisoned or killed tortured and so on so forth and so as we tell the story we know we are also the subject of the story and guess what we are also part of moves in the right thing the final chapter of the story because as we continue to probe as we continue to ask hard and tough questions as we continue to put pressure on politicians to come to come to come forward with the truth we are helping in exposing the murders and coming up with the facts and the truth of the matter so why we are reporting the story we are the subject of this story and we ought to help think right thing the final chapters of it so whatever's going to come next might be some cynical deals between uncut washington and riyadh but the story will not end there
2:14 am
the story we're going to have to continue because as long as we in the media continue to probe i think they going to have to come up with the answers and indeed the story will continue certainly for the forseeable future for the moment thanks for joining us from london. well earlier on monday president trump suggested that broke killers might be responsible for the alleged murder of alan fischer has more on that from washington d.c. . leaving for florida president trump reveals the school can to the saudi king in a twenty minute call to go to saudi denial that anything to do with the disappearance of jamal khashoggi thank you both thanking a saudi arabia thank you i said no way over one hundred five three guys you can thank you shared thodey rabia and theory is that three hundred thirty four you know i don't think i should thank you or you gave thought through what we did we
2:15 am
get out of the way go to saudi arabia and think faced with such a denial the president floated a theory of what may have happened at the saudi consulate a narrative pushed by some soda media thought it would be like a good big three zero hearing thrown out through we're going to try getting out of poverty very it is not accept it was a number of politicians on both sides have criticized the president's position former democratic vice presidential candidate tim kaine tweeted president trump's response to jamal khashoggi his disappearance reveals a man more willing to trust authoritarian leaders than reliable intelligence when middle east analyst says the president is performing a difficult balancing act blaming it on another element such as some sort of quote unquote rogue element would enable the saudi leadership to avoid being held accountable if the public is going to buy this or not is another question when it comes to the future the seems to be more questions than answers the saudis are
2:16 am
still pressing ahead with a large investment conference in the kingdom later this month even though a growing number of high profile figures are boycotting the event after richard branson and the head of super announced they were out last week now the head of j.p. morgan chase bank top international finance figure jamie dimon and the chairman of the ford motor company bill ford see they won't be growing. u.s. secretary of state might bump u. is known as way to saudi arabia what he asks and what he's told me will dictate what america does next alan fischer al-jazeera washington well later the u.s. president commented on media reports that saudi officials might say that she was killed during an authorized interrogation and we're working very well so you really are with your team and they're all working together to figure out what happened and they want to know what happened also so a lot of people are working on it. and will be bound very much i will say i read everything i could but nobody knows it's an official report so far just the rule of
2:17 am
the rule reporting from you know our correspondent john hendren joins me now live from washington d.c. and for several hours now we've potentially been hearing about a significant statement that may come from the saudi kingdom and that's being reported specifically by the u.s. media was a lot about. that's right so while the president seems to be telegraphing what the saudi response evolving saudi response is and we've got reports in the media now that this saudis are about to take credit you know in a way to say that what happened here was in fact the killing at the saudi embassy in istanbul but that it was not authorized it was supposed to be an interrogation and the entire event was not according to the saudi story authorised by the crown prince mohammed bin soman so that is this story that president trump seems to be going along with his well this idea of rogue killers it does strain credibility for
2:18 am
a lot of people here on capitol hill and elsewhere there are members of congress who as you heard in ellen story have been very critical samantha powers of the former u.s. ambassador to the united nations and she tweeted this evening the notion that mohamed bin some on one of the most controlling leaders in the middle east didn't know that this government was sending that his government was sending fifteen goons to turkey to abduct a saudi critic is absurd and that pretty well sums up how many people here on capitol hill feel as well the president is going to receive a lot of pressure on this indeed in days of what some of the just sudden of calls as we soul and all officials reports politicians from across the border voicing real concern but the concern there was something that's repeated in terms of present trends history that he is listening to. king in saudi arabia rather than the intelligence that he's being given by his own people and he sort of pops
2:19 am
deciding that one is more important than the other. that's right and that's a pattern that we have seen with president trump in the past he's been asked about whether the russians had meddled in the u.s. election in two thousand and sixteen helping him to win and he said well yeah it could have been the russians could have been some four hundred pound guy on his couch and in here once again he's he's allowing the possibility for something other than the most obvious story and that would be that saudi arabia actually ordered this killing president trump on taking a day or so by saying he was going to wait to call and then after that call he has now pretty much gone along with this story that saudi arabia appears to be telling now they have not released that statement so we don't know for certain that that will be the official saudi explanation if it is it will contradict days to weeks of what the saudi government has been saying the king told president trump according
2:20 am
to trump today that he didn't know anything about what had happened there the saudi government has out right denied that he was killed there in fact they said he walked out after that meeting and of course he was never seen from again for the moment to. come back to what the situation develops from washington d.c. thank you. bonnie and she's a professor who researches the middle east at the university of waterloo we just spoke a few days ago about this story it's good to have you back with us on the program how seriously should we take for example about rogue elements in the saudi regime responsible for the death toll is the sort of trying to set the scene for us ready for a whole substantial announcement from the saudis. well i don't expect anymore i think many people want to take the story particular at the government level from the turks to the americans to the saudis and just frankly have the news cycle move on
2:21 am
in many ways having the saudis admit to some sort of culpability and this is a way to sort of hopefully divert attention away from the story because at the end of the day this is not doing well is not helping either the saudis or the americans or even the turks for that matter i think all three parties have a vested interest and basically coming and closing this chapter it's been almost two weeks and i think everybody you know sort of watching this is quite surprised at how long this is last particularly at a time under trump where frankly you know yesterday's news is seems like it's eons ago so i think there's a lot of vested interest in moving this forward and that's why we see the story come to the fore what do you make of visiting he's on his way there now. well i think it's just another a part of the sort of the chapter was closed you know we've taken care of it trump can be able to tell many of the senators who've been very vocal about you know doing something that we got to the bottom of it the saudis admitted it there was no
2:22 am
connection to any sort of higher echelons of power it was a rogue element there will be one or two fall guys that will take the fall and the rest will sort of be exonerated and i think we're not going to get to the truth because none of the parties particularly the americans and i think the turks and the saudis none i'm not i'm going to want to get to the truth because unfortunately that's going to complicate their relationship and that's far more important for them all if that's all very important for the troika of countries how about countries such as the u.k. france and germany for example even canada who very critical of what's going on. outside of you might say that triangle of contact between the u.s. turkey and saudi arabia they will certainly raise their voices because their respective publics are already quite critical of what's being going on. indeed but don't forget here you know saudi arabia is the largest importer of weapons in the world all of the countries can include it really want this to go away there's
2:23 am
a reason why canada did not escalate the tit for tat after the saudis basically asked the ambassador to leave and many of the other countries didn't come to canada france for the very same reason nobody wants to break these ties that's not necessarily the right thing but i think it's the rational frankly unfortunately end of the day state interest is to want this to go away and now that there is a story that everybody can buy into i think many will believe and hope that in fact the media was turned their attention to something else let's just talk about the realms of hypotheticals here just suppose the king of saudi arabia didn't know but his sons mohammad jill simone the crown prince did know what will this do in terms of the the grip on power the dynamics between father and son and the dynamics between those two saudis and the u.s. . well i think that you know as further element to the question of whether or not actually haven't been some man does have a grip on power and whether or not that he's going to have the popular support even
2:24 am
the political elite support to continue i think this is really dangerous for for his for his authority you know people are potentially going to be questioning that maybe this is you know m.b.'s gone too far so i think this is going to cause him some trouble at home or we should see certainly what does happen. mommy thanks for joining us thank you. now let's step back and take a quick look at how the story actually unfolded jamal khashoggi went missing shortly after entering the saudi consulate in istanbul on october the second now he went there to pick up papers to get married as his fiance waited outside the next day saudi authorities confirmed that he disappeared but also said that he'd left the consular office turkish security sources later revealed they had information that he was tortured and killed inside the building allegations dismissed by the saudis as baseless lie
2:25 am
a week after his disappearance international pressure mounted on saudi arabia u.s. president donald trump warned of severe punishment if the kingdom was to blame security video was released showing shoji entering the consular office days after saudi officials said the cameras there weren't working kingsland got involved speaking to turkish president on a phone call on sunday saying no one could undermine the strength of their relationship and in the past few hours a joint investigation team has entered the consular office in istanbul there has been a flurry of activity on twitter from u.s. senators and former members of government demanding trump old riyadh accountable for show g.'s disappearance the democratic senator from maryland chris van hollen tweeted president trump suggestion that could show g.'s elaborately planned murder in the saudi's own concealer was orchestrated by rogue killers defies reality orders must have come from the top the us must not be complicit in an effort to
2:26 am
cover up this here in this crime. and remind you again about what stunts and the power of the former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. had to say under the obama administration she tweeted the notion that mohammed bin sunland one of the most controlling leaders in the middle east didn't know that his government was sending fifteen goons to turkey to duct a saudi critic is absurd. stacey served as a u.s. state department official during the obama administration joins me now from washington d.c. good to have you with us on the program so is that sort of a diplomatic nightmare for the white house surely that sort of pin so much on the close relationship between riyadh because as we've seen from those politicians saying the u.s. cannot be seen surely in this particular case to be complicit in what is quite a he knows. well that's one way of looking at it and certainly the evidence is mounting that supports that perspective but i think what we're seeing here is actually some state craft and for someone who was an advisor on
2:27 am
the hillary campaign takes a lot for me to give the president some credit here on this i think what the u.s. is doing the reason why pompei was on his way there in why you heard trump's comments similar to what we expect the saudi statement to be is because the u.s. is helping them come up with a way to in a very small way not really say face but actually try to move the story a bit off the stage so the the important aspects of this relationship which really is a special relationship between the saudis and this president. to be maintained and the very high stakes involved to continue to be important and that involves turkey as well because the turks have an interest in keeping relations positive with the saudis and vice versa so that also is a factor here for the be too much pressure at home certainly in congress or even
2:28 am
from members of the house if they see that the white house is trying to move the agenda or push the narrative into a different direction at the behest of saudi. almost certainly in fact it's going to be very difficult for the administration to hold off on the pressure that congress is already applying and will continue to apply if this statement is what we think it's going to be but there will be a few people who sort of understand the state craft here i mean the war in yemen the war in syria the n.c.a. isis coalition this middle east security alliance that would be in the u.s. interests if it were to go forward and obviously hopefully. what the saudis would do after coming up with this explanation which is they would need to take some steps to perhaps come up with a prize and name it after chris shoji or do something for his family or really help the u.s. in some key ways such is bringing cuts are back into the g.c.c.
2:29 am
and that conflict there are a number of things the saudis can do to really take positive steps and would be in a way a statesman like after this extremely heinous act and something that i think if obviously our saudi friends perpetrated this they are probably regretting it now the opposite to what you'll saying is also the comments made by the president that saudi would be severely punished if they were responsible for this it is pump a use visit now to riyadh also or potentially if we could talk in hypotheticals a way to find out how saudi could be punished without saudi you might say finding a way to kick back because they have said that they wouldn't take too well to sanctions old having that one slapped. that's right i think that's what we're likely to expect on the one hand. it was probably helping them craft talking points
2:30 am
on this on the other hand they're green what kind of measures sanction like measures the u.s. could take that the saudis would allow and so they're trying to coordinate all of these things and obviously the pressure from the media here from around the world other allies of the u.s. is a ments in from both sides of the aisle on capitol hill so there will need to be something that probably is more than symbolic because after all this was a u.s. resident a prominent journalist who appears to have been murdered so that will be coming down the pike most assuredly which is the what does i just stacey thanks so much for joining us from washington d.c. . still ahead here on the al-jazeera news. this is the time for cool calm heads to prevail. britain's prime minister tries to reassure her nation albright said despite the breakdown in talks with the e.u. . also while the arrival of a fleet of luxury cars is provoking calls for a national strike in powerpoint new guinea and in sport one of cricket's greatest

2:34 am
you're watching there is news hour i'm still running out of mind of our top stories a source from the turkish attorney general's office has told al jazeera they found evidence that missing saudi journalist. was murdered inside the saudi consulate turkish investigators were finally allowed into the building thirteen days after the journalists disappearance. u.s. media reporting saudi arabia is weighing whether to release a statement that she was killed as a result of an interrogation that went wrong the saudis reportedly plan to say this was done without official clearance and u.s. president donald trump says rogue elements from inside saudi arabia could have been responsible for disappearance he sent secretary of state by compared to saudi arabia to discuss the issue with king saul. also expected to visit turkey.
2:35 am
move on to other news now yemen's president. has sucked the prime minister. will face an investigation over the country's economic crisis the yemeni currency has plummeted in recent months sending thousands of people protesting in the streets food and fuel prices have skyrocketed due to the ongoing conflict. the largest group in syria's rebel held province is yet to withdraw its forces from a buffer zone despite a deadline set by turkey and russia. hitched years has not said whether except for rejects the terms of the sochi agreement that heals the top they did militarized area around the north western regions surrounding italy province heavy weapons were due to be cleared over the rebel fighters on monday has more from neighboring lebanon. a demilitarized zone is being created around syria's it live province a twenty kilometer deep strip of territory is now free of heavy weapons by october
2:36 am
fifteenth it should have also been free of fighters considered terrorists by the international community the so-called radical groups didn't pull back but hours before the deadline. the largest military alliance that controls much of the buffer area and the rest of the province signaled that it will comply in its statement. said it appreciated efforts by those inside and outside which is believed to be a reference to turkey to prevent an invasion and wide scale killing it also made reference to the foreign fighters saying we won't forget to the group maybe trying to keep unity and prevent betrayal among its ranks that is why an explicit acceptance of the deal would worsen divisions or rejection would risk a military confrontation with turkey which has said it is ready to use force against those who do not comply. quietly met the deadline to withdraw heavy weapons from his own last week it's not the first time the group has shown pragmatism the
2:37 am
buffer zone deal does not call for a surrender or reconciliation with the syrian government it created a new front line that protects regime strongholds and russian military assets but many syrians of the rebel controlled province remain skeptical. of the one million dollar that you know what are they moved. heavy weapons back sometime kilometers or so but i don't support this it just makes it easier for the regime and russia to advance into it you cannot trust the regime and russia. this is all a game the aim is to cause division among rebel ranks that will lead to infighting that way it becomes easier for the regime to take the area everyone is lying to us . the syrian government has repeatedly said it liberal eventually return to state control but russia and turkey have so far been the decision makers the deals sponsors need each other in the post-war phase but i think it serves the interests
2:38 am
of both parties so this is why i believe that this agreement will hold for for the time being and the turks will be giving more time in order to actually try and to deconstruct the whole complexity of this situation inside it live for the next few weeks and months a few days ago russia said that it could accept a brief delay if it meant the spirit of the agreement was still upheld the deadline was missed but syria's main power brokers seem committed to keeping the deal alive . beirut the border crossing between syria and jordan has opened for the first time in three years territory near the crossing was recaptured from rebels by syrian government forces in july a sea of used to be a busy route for goods and people before it was closed during a major battle of the civil war because after crossing between the israeli occupied golan heights and syria may also reopen on monday is the result of a deal between israel syria and the united nations and it will allow u.n.

of the border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland has more from london. and now you have a deal by by when is a very minister i expect. you to meet a very very british prime minister to resign may you find yourself fighting for a break deal on multiple fronts this was her message to parliament on monday so much of these negotiations are necessarily technical but the reason this all matters is because it affects the future of our country it affects jobs and livelihoods in every community it is about what kind of country we are and about our faith in our democracy of course it is frustrating that almost all of the remaining points of disagreement are focused on how we manage a scenario which both sides hope should never come to pass and which if it does will only be temporary we cannot let this disagreement derail the prospects of a good deal and leave us with the no deal outcome that no one wants on sunday talks with the e.u.
