8:48 am
a woman behind the wheel society is changing albeit slowly but the women drivers of afghanistan there is a long road ahead before they are fully accepted in many countries pregnancy and childbirth a still extremely dangerous for mothers and babies most of the mothers dying from the infection they being there when dying from. algiers even travels to malawi and looks at how rural communities a challenging tradition in order to reduce child in the toilet and improve maternal health. is too strong lifeline between life and death on al-jazeera. last minute rallies in the u.s. ahead of tuesday's high stakes midterm elections that will decide if the
8:49 am
republicans can retain a majority in congress. when you're watching our zero live my headquarters here in doha coming up turkish media reports suggest that saudi arabia sent a team to raise evidence to the killing of journalists. inside its consulate in istanbul also the u.s. says its latest sanctions against iran are the toughest so far but some of tehran's leading business that's been exempted. and kidnap dozens of children from a school in western cameroon. warders supporters that the media is treating choose days election as a referendum on his presidency as both republicans and democrats called last minute
8:50 am
rallies on the eve of the vote trump's republican party is trying to protect its majority in the house of representatives and the senate democrats are hoping to win back control of at least the house to try and thwart trump's agenda for the final two years of his four year term our correspondents are in two states with close senate races will speak to highjack castries in tucson arizona shortly but first john hendren joins us from fort wayne indiana where president trump is holding a campaign rally we saw pictures of him john just to the top of the news bulletin what's he been saying. well president around as been rallying the crowd here he's trying to get them to vote for mike braun who is challenging an incumbent democratic senator here and he said if you want the economic expansion to continue vote for me if you want to stop vote for democrats or vote for republicans if you want to continue he said and then he brought up mike
8:51 am
brawny also brought trump kellyanne conway his communications aid and also sarah huckabee sanders he's been also falsely saying that the big economic were great recession of two thousand and eight and nine which actually began in two thousand december two thousand and seven why is obama is recession when a fact started under president george w. bush and he has been trying to get people here to vote for braun in a very closely aligned race this is part of what he had to say so. when you enter the voting booth on tuesday you will be making a simple choice a vote for republicans is a vote to continue our extraordinary prosperity. a vote for democrats is a vote to bring this economic boom crashing down very rapidly.
8:52 am
the democratic agenda will deliver a socialist nightmare. the republican agenda is delivering the american dream optimism the american dream. and the president has been cool to see this election is being described as the most contentious insoles of being described as racist in schools as accusations are going to continue i'm sure will cross election day on tuesday. that's why there are civil rights groups that are saying that republicans staged twenty six events had been illegally purging voters and it is most strongly happening at least according to the civil rights advocates in the state of georgia where the secretary of state the man who actually counts the votes decides how the process goes he's also running for governor and there he is persia at least one
8:53 am
point four million voters and a lot of people are pretty concerned because the majority of those voters are minorities many of them african-american we talked to a couple of them who were in who were confounded by their inability to vote one of them don't mean that he filled out an entire ballot correctly signed it sent it in and it was rejected because he didn't sign the on the outside and when he called up to complain about that they told him your wife's your wife's ballot also will be rejected and will come in the mail this is all happening within days of the election and then of course there was a new advertising by the republicans that essentially links to these migrants who are coming through mexico to apply legally for asylum in the united states with a murderer a man who was an illegal immigrant who murdered two women he appears at the beginning of the end of the ad and of course the migrants appear in the middle and
8:54 am
the ad asks the question who else will the democrats let in so this is definitely a racially changed election so and that's all part of the republicans get out the vote effort indeed in full swing full of us with you through the day well thanks joe. torre of the cause behind the castro he's live for us in tucson arizona and the theme of race is also a whole topic way you all because the agenda that when the top the top issue. of the geographical reason is wells i was. sort of national repercussions. across the country. that's right because right here in arizona i'm only one hundred kilometers north of the border with mexico and immigration is coming up and again and again in my conversations with voters there are many latino voters here who may be immigrants themselves or just a couple of generations removed from immigrants and then you mix that with the
8:55 am
white retire rees who flock here to arizona to live out their retirements is enjoying the sunny climate here and what you get is very little consensus on border policies and on what to do with the undocumented immigrants already in the country but what they're all telling me that they agree on is that immigration is a top issue here. the day of the dead a traditional mexican festival also celebrated here in the u.s. state of arizona across the border here amid who couldn't of the dead talks of politics is very much alive because of the state of the country. i think that with president unfortunately it's i mean there's people that love him and that's great but there's people that despise him because of his attitude and the way he speaks trump isn't on the ballot but arizona will choose between congressional candidates who either support or oppose him i wholeheartedly support the president move the
8:56 am
national guard to the border i believe it's our duty to stand up against the president is doing something wrong trump one arizona in the presidential election outside urban centers support for him remains strong but in this state where one in three voters call themselves independents the midterm elections results are anyone's guess i'm kind of a little bit in both ways you know so it depends on what that person stands for there's also the question of whether latinos lean democrat will turn out in high numbers arizona's pride of its mixed heritage is on the. place here with you know speaking up to thirty percent of the state's population the fewer than half of registered voters actually cast the ballot in a midterm election so the challenge for the democratic party is to translate those easy out of the streets into action at the core volunteers with a group me familia volta have been canvassing hispanic neighborhoods for weeks this
8:57 am
is the response has been worrying go vote. a lot of them are scared they're scared to even come out they're scared to even do anything because of everything that's been going on because of what trump in recent weeks trump has stoked fears about an approaching caravan of central american migrants these are bad people coming through there these are babies little angels coming into our country the president is sending more than five thousand soldiers to the border it's definitely a fear based strategy at the same time i think when you're thinking about arizona is again those practicalities is that overkill. voters at the day of the dead festival spoke of the dark state of politics in arizona and around the u.s. they say they're ready to move on the question is in which direction. and if you look at the early voting turnout here in arizona there has been
8:58 am
a late surge among democrats who have already cast a ballot that's really drawn suborn do you see as i'm among the democrats here although notably it's still fall short of total republican turnout now this is a state that has not elected a democrat to the senate for thirty years but it could change now because those candidates are polling at a statistical tie and to decide it will depend on who turns out the vote democrats are hoping that they use that latinos and the independents will decide in their favor so here thanks very much hydrogen of course we'll look. at the results as well through of course thank you. it's middle of the top story now and turkish media have reported that saudi officials sent to istanbul to investigate the disappearance of journalist jamal khashoggi focused instead on removing evidence of his murder among those in the
8:59 am
saudi team that arrived nine days after the shoji was killed was a chemical expert under toxicologist has more from istanbul another leak to the pro-government newspaper this time implicating two members of the official search and investigation team sent from saudi arabia nine days after his murder these banned a comment i've been as easily general be reported to be a chemical expert and hire me said to be a toxicologist are accused of trying to destroy evidence and cover up what happened they are reported to have been active in the consulate and the consul general's residence had of the turkish investigators being allowed into the buildings to start their own inquiries later a call was made for inquiries into reports of attempts to destroy his body in acid
