9:01 pm
with the sport including point to series a white so return of the super classic out on the biggest stage yet junior is such a showdown with river plate in the final of the liberty doris. his new prime minister has told al jazeera his appointment is legitimate mahinda rajapaksa says he's not just getting on with the job he's of course the two term for president he was controversially appointed a week ago after his successor sacked the prime minister become a singer but and smith begins our coverage from column. he has all the trappings of prime minister including access to the office for the new prime minister mahinda rajapaksa he's acting unconstitutionally his critics say because he was appointed by president by three policy was sane and not elected by the embers of parliament on a massage. oh you're so i must see you as your of an appointment you think services
9:02 pm
at the institution of this buffet the argument is that parliament should be deciding who's the prime minister not the normal norm as we did in stews in the nude photos and so your immediate one search for a now you're assuming the prime minister's position i have augustine ignore the birth of his daughter who rajapaksa needs the backing of one hundred thirteen m.p.'s to solidify his return to power but the president suspended pollo meant some suspect he did that to give rajapaksa time to get enough support how will you get enough support from parliament how will you get the n.p.c. what we have already got that i'm going to be sure and so why the delay in recalling parliament what are we hanging on for you know because we want to. get ready for the i did rajapakse that was at the prime minister's office to meet academics telling them there's no crisis as far as he's concerned it certainly is a crisis but the ousted prime minister rudd no wickramasinghe or he's refusing to
9:03 pm
leave the official residence of the pm he says he remains prime minister because the power to sack him was stripped from the president two years ago by an amendment to the constitution the whole structure of government in the country is still very strong the executive. and the presumption is that the presidency is the strongest office they were in though the nineteenth amendment has made changes to that and therefore what the presidency has to see goes rajapaksa serve two terms as president defeated thomas separatists in a twenty six year long civil war but was accused of human rights abuses in the process his family and inner circle is under investigation for corruption and you're looking forward to your new positions are you looking forward to being prime minister really much he wanted to play hard to get beyond the rajapaksa is presenting an image of a business as usual but we've run away from
9:04 pm
a single still claiming to be the legitimate prime minister things are far from usual parliament will though now get to have the final say it seems when it's soon recalled and m.p.'s get to vote byrne and al-jazeera colombo only respond to mohamed from a social activist interim anchor who believes the sacking may not be constitutional . really much your concern to the whole it civil society and public in general because it just so since they're wrong proceeded in terms of. appointing a prime minister it's not about who's the prime minister they just buy the right that much already to become a singer but say it's it it's much beyond that it's but it's bigger than that it's about where their what was done is going to do surely or not and if that is not constitutional which is that being which was majority of the people share then that's not the receipt and we need to have that one issue it's not just you know
9:05 pm
proceeds to have such or constitutional court where he came around with off easing at two dollars fifteen and appointed it without thinking generally write it out one of the key promises about it he promises were about fighting corruption which was prevalent at that time and then being the see big freedoms and also of having an agenda for reconciliation to heal that actually triggered my three decade old war i had suddenly although i'm not see that we need not make any progress in the last three and a half years but we did have significant progress in the sequel intangible areas like the freedom of expression a lot the act but nothing happened i certainly what he says is that he can't work we just particular prime minister who he ran for office to be there week in a sense and suddenly appoints the first be the same person he wanted to defeat so which he's human surprise to us and also we are just wondering what happened as
9:06 pm
much as the international community is. the referee in the case of slain journalist jamal khashoggi has taken a new turn the washington post of course the newspaper kushal she wrote for has published a report with more information about a recent phone call that the saudi crown prince mohammed and salman made to washington simply hellcat. me as a white house correspondent with more details kimberly. yeah washington post reporting this and of course this is notable because she was a contributor to the washington post and has continued to follow this case obviously advocating for one of their own now reporting that a senior administration official has revealed to the washington post that there was a telephone call between the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon and in this telephone call that took place with the president's son in law jared kushner
9:07 pm
a white house aide as well as the national security advisor john bolton that in fact muhammad and solomon described enough to show she as a quote dangerous it dangerous islamist and this is important to note because this call was made just days after she won her show she disappeared now this happened also we should point out before the kingdom admitted that the journalist died in their custody what we find notable about this is that the family has also issued a statement the family of show she and they have said very publicly that this characterization made by the crown prince is not only dangerous in accurate but it's also ridiculous deny he was any of the things that are alleged including a member of the muslim brotherhood ok thank you for that update kimberly health that in washington meanwhile turkey's justice minister has demanded saudi arabia cooperate fully with the investigation into the murder of saudi journalist jamal
9:08 pm
khashoggi that's after turkey revealed to show she was strangled to death a soon as he entered the saudi consulate in istanbul on october second saudi arabia yet to respond to those revelations. business the whole world's attention is on this matter so it cannot be kept a secret it's a concern for everyone for the conscience of everyone we'll just calling for an answer we're asking for the saudi side to cooperate closely they need to cooperate and support the inquiry said the magic can be resolved. aligned to hashem a whole bar in istanbul masham a couple of hours ago you were explaining to me or describing to me round two almost or a second round of political negotiations can explain that a little more for us yes come back from now on the words you will see the turkish government working on two particular fronts the political one which is trying to put more political pressure on the saudi political establishment to try to reveal more details about what happened as
9:09 pm
a model and who gave the order and this explains why today the deputy head of the party not monk said basically the saudi arabia would have to face into national isolation and there is also the second front which is the judicial where the turkish government is saying the saudis have broken all the promises when it comes to fully cooperating with with with the turkish counterpart saying that they need to establish facts they need to tell them exactly who gave the order to kids amount of and the identity of the local collaborator who was tasked with this posing of the body and now it was just about this pressure which is being building and wish is an indication of the escalation of the rhetoric between the two countries now for all the statements of we've seen over the last forty eight hours the turkish government is basically saying in a different way they does not trust so do not trust the saudis will in any capacity
9:10 pm
in the near future be forthcoming and come out openly about the circumstances of the of the of the killing. of the same time. the wording of the statement yesterday from the turkish prosecutor the statements for the from the government from the uk party for the justice minister here. give us an indication that we have here some very strong evidence that they will use in the near future they are very confident they know exactly what happened. it's just a matter of time before they can establish the whereabouts of his remains thank you for that update hashem in istanbul in the past hour the eiffel tower in paris went dark on the eve of international day two into punitive for crimes against journalists the landmark lowered its lights to on a press freedom and in protest of crimes against journalists one month almost to
9:11 pm
the day after the killing of jamal khashoggi and of the time when threats against journalists are more widespread than ever one of the two black box flight recorders from the plane crash off the coast of indonesia has been found in the seabed crash experts want to know why though a two month old boeing seven three seven just disappeared shortly after takeoff from jakarta monday killing one hundred eighty nine passengers and crew florence italy reports. three days after indonesia's second worst disaster a vital potential clue to the chorus divers have recovered the flight data recorder buried in the sea bed they had to dig to get it out it logs everything the lion air boeing seven three seven was doing including its speed altitude and heading. we will let the transportation safety committee do their job and we have requested willing to help it amended need it for inspection to find out because of the crash

9:14 pm
this president donald trump says he's sending up to fifteen thousand troops to the border with mexico in what would be the largest deployment of its kind in more than a century trumps hardman his stance against a caravan of migrants fleeing poverty and violence in central america if the u.s. does go ahead with this bigger troop deployment along its southern border the numbers of really change quite a pace the pentagon said only seven thousand troops are being sent in to support customs and border protection agents but if it reaches fifteen thousand it would be roughly equivalent to the size of the u.s. military's presence in afghanistan three times the size of the presence in iraq according to reports there are four different caravans travelling through mexico with up to six thousand people will be migrant caravan has become a big campaign platform for next week's u.s. midterm elections as don't trump steps up his anti immigrant tough talk to shore republican votes and reports on that from florida. the first time supporters arrived thirty hours before the president began speaking at the venue in fort my is
9:15 pm
camera mcginty is typical of those who attend make america great again rallies an ardent fan of the president says nothing will stop and showing his support not only am i here to support him for the mid-term election i'm out here to show people that we're not going to be intimidated by people out there that are threatening some supporters that are vandalizing people's vehicles for having decals on it signs are having to be replaced people are stealing them people are destroying them and we will not be intimidated because the spirit of america is back with the mid-term elections approaching the president is keen to get voters out in what is a vital state he hit the usual subjects of a booming economy and tax cuts that continues to push immigrant agenda they want to invite caravan after caravan in to our country which brings crime upon crime. a vote for democrats is a vote to liquidate america's borders and it's a vote to let math venton all heroin and other deadly drugs for across our borders
9:16 pm
drugs that take the lives of over think of this over seventy thousand americans a year one of the key races in the sunshine state is for the senate florida's governor is hoping to unseat longtime democratic incumbent bill nelson and republicans that a vote for him is a continuation of trump's policies singer bill nelson who's been in office for forty two year. he voted against the trumped tax cuts. here's voted for higher taxes over three hundred times the president also stumped for wrong to santas the republican candidate for governor who shaped himself in trump's image florida remains a vital stay put. and the republican party votes here tend to reflect the mood of
9:17 pm
the entire country between now and election day on november the sixth the president will hold ten more make america great again events will go to the states where it's thought he'll make the biggest difference meticulously in senate races it's an extraordinary final push an indication of just how important these midterms are and gallacher al-jazeera fort myers florida we spoke to evelyn major a little bit earlier president of project hope three sixty she says president trump is using the plight of migrants to rally support for his party this midterm election. these are human beings i mean a lot of these people are families that are coming together and so they're fleeing because there's the this debilitation of their country i mean from a social economic perspective the violence is rising and people just one better future for their children a better future for themselves and their families and so you know it's just the
9:18 pm
political unrest you know the economic instability those are the things that are really driving these people i think that they're very much aware that the president of the united states does not welcome them here but i think that they have probably using this to their advantage in the sense that he has been using this to mislead people during this midterm election and so he has given them a great platform the media and so yeah i think that they do know the opposition that they face but they also know that there is a great america that does embrace them and does welcome them we're talking about over seventy five hundred people that are trying to cross the border for a better tomorrow and so we're not sure what's going to happen we do know that mexico is open to helping the families united states obviously doesn't have the same. attitude or heard the same grace for the families and really the united states but you know this is a you know the president of the united states who is really using this you know to
9:19 pm
make sure that he rallies up his voters in this midterm election for whatever reason you know he's using these scare tactics to make sure that people come out and vote in favor of his politics which we know of course are inhumane i mean they're literally against what america stands for and so you know it is going to be a problem that we're going to be seen for some time and you know we're going to be watching but yeah i you know they they will you know they will be on our radar for quite some time this is you know this is a huge undertaking. talking about seventy five hundred people eight hundred miles away from our borders there's a lot it's going to happen so let's put all of this through the prism of the midterms with robert gucci he's an associate professor at lancaster university in the u.k. nice to have you with us. do you think any of this is making a difference because what donald trump is doing right now with the tough talk on
9:20 pm
immigration and the ad campaign which a lot of people have said it's very racist he's just kind of preaching to the choir here recently well you know the donald trump plays the short game a lot of the time so even though this does really speak this election does speak to the twenty twenty bed he has your as your previous speaker said is excellent they're bringing up their rhetoric i mean a lot of the things that he's speaking to our cultural challenges the american public have been dealing with since before the nine eleven terrorist attacks and there was a lot of movement in conservative cultural change that got sidelined for another sort of racist approach which was the war on terror and what we're finding now is from finding great success in tapping into those salient issues of racism and xenophobia attitudes that have done quite well for him i mean he got his
9:21 pm
supreme court nominees in especially this last one we saw and a lot of that was based on. forms of hatred and so it's a it's a quite successful campaign for him fortunately but it's been successful yet and one of the things i find most intriguing about is that they the caravan is no way near the united states in the moment one but you for well over a month but the way don't trust talking in the way the right wing media is talking in the us you'd swear they were about to come pouring over the border tomorrow. well the the other interesting part relate related to that is i can't quite remember his estimates when the caravan started but it was in the close maybe ten thousand people and seven thousand people and it was much smaller than that when it started and it's grown over the course of time which one would expect and so some of that in his mind i think really comes to validate his his fears and he comes out with these very drastic numbers of people who are pounding down america's doors is
9:22 pm
inaccurate in those numbers but then the numbers actually grow and he comes back and he says look i was right i knew all along this was going to be a huge impact on us and so there's a lot of real mind games that have fortune i don't have a better way to describe with this president that is rooted in fear that the american borders are going to be broken down and american society is going to be forever changed for getting into the really simplistic idea that that country was started on immigrants and but that comment has really been set aside by people who want jobs for themselves but seem to also not want to do certain types of jobs it's a very confusing mentality that trump really good at speaking to just quickly robert what's your feeling on the vote itself the widely held view is that the democrats would probably win back the house maybe not by that much and that the
9:23 pm
senate may well stay in the hands of the republicans but then after the presidential election two years ago i don't know really whether to believe him here . yeah i mean i think that the outcome from the selection despite you know who has more seats where is really the question of how what does this mean for back door negotiations between democrats and republicans moving forward are democrats going to be moving even further to the center and maybe further to the right as they have to just get policies by that they that they need to get by to hold on to a little bit of the same to of their of their party because i think a lot of people are concerned about being the next target for trump and so if they speak too loudly on the democratic side if they speak too loudly against policies of the white house they become just targets for harassment and so there's there's questions here about no matter who wins what what does that mean for the democratic
9:24 pm
party putting forward a nominee that could actually be potentially damaging to donald trump's twenty twenty bid and what does that so what is the democratic party going to look like after this even if they retain some control is it going to make them even more closely resembling republican politicians are good cheap good to talk to about these issues still lots more to come in these next few days thank you. of the government accused of killing eleven jewish worship is that a synagogue in the u.s. has pleaded not guilty to forty four charges as more funerals are held in pittsburgh about was accused of multiple motives hate crimes firearms offenses and obstructing the practice of religion is alleged to have shouted kill all jews about service on saturday the police are investigating the mysterious deaths of two saudi arabian sisters found dead in new york their bodies which were bound to get a washed up on the city's waterfront last week or thirty say it appears they were
