systematic plan to punish opponents including forced labor starvation shea denies ordering become a ruse to commit genocide but he has said that he must take responsibility for the damage caused by the regime that he led and this remorseful for the crimes committed some person was president from cambodia for one hundred seventy six to nine hundred seventy nine then he represented the committee rouge not only at home but abroad some also also says he didn't play any direct role in the mass killing of his people and shouldn't be held responsible for the very latest now from florence louis our correspondent who's it phnom penh i mean how significant really are these verdicts. well be that as you mentioned these are the two most senior surviving members of the community rouge nobel already spending like they've already been convicted and sentenced and sentenced to life in prison for having been found guilty for crimes against humanity over the forced evacuation
9:01 am
of phnom penh the capital city in one thousand nine hundred seventy five now this was back in two thousand and fourteen and during the start of the trial it was decided that because the allegations against these two men with so many that the hearings would be thought into smaller trials because there were fears that because of the age of these defendants that they might possibly before a verdict could be reached so for this case there were also being accused of crimes against humanity committed at other parts of and other parts of cambodia at labor camps detention centers execution grounds mainly in the rural areas of can vote here but importantly they've also been accused of genocide and during the communal rouge regime one hundred thousand muslim cham a minority group and about twenty thousand people were killed so these are the first genocide charges that anyone from the community rouge regime is facing now a guilty verdict could could possibly mean that it would set legal precedence it

9:03 am
a hybrid or setup with the cooperation of the u.n. and the cambodian government and the allegations that the they can vote in government has sort of really stymied the the the proceedings of this case and the preston has said he doesn't want to see other investigations continue there are the pending cases but they've since been frozen he's also said that he doesn't want to see them continue because of fears that it could cause instability and under arrest in this country and that commit the survivors of the communities regime that we've managed to speak to say they would very much however like to see this type you know continue they would like to see more people being tried they would like to see more people being convicted at the same time some of them have told us that they understand that just as it's flawed and those a system is imperfect it has gone a long way to establishing truth and has put into discussion the trauma that the survivors have had to live with and it's also gone

papua new guinea is the poorest member of the asia pacific economic cooperation or apec group but the economies of its twenty one members are combined worth more than half the world's total discussing ways to grow them further through free trade investment and development is the official substance of the apec summit with big investment deals likely to be negotiated and announced but it's the unofficial meetings and bilateral discussions and deals on the sidelines that will matter most particularly those involving china's president well this is the show paying isn't paul was me for five days whereas most leaders will be spending as little time here at or in port moresby as possible to the disappointments of its hosts presidents putin of russia and trump of the united states a skipping the summit altogether u.s. vice president mike pence will be staying in australia and just flying into port moresby for day trips that adds to the feeling among some apec countries that china
9:06 am
has more to offer them than the other big pacific powers china's growing interest and investment in smaller countries concerns the region of traditional partners including leaders here in australia last week australia's prime minister announced a renewed focus on pacific neighbors promising bigger investment loans more military cooperation and greater levels of eight this is our parish. this is our part of the world this is where we have special responsibilities we always have we . china quickly what saw to it that the pacific garden region is not the spear influence of any country but competition for influence between australia the us and its allies and china will be the main unofficial theme of the summit for papua new guinea and more immediate will be concern over waste and corruption associated with hosting the event the country is impoverished with struggling health and education

9:08 am
the darker blue is indicating where it's likely to be heaviest so plenty more in the way of heavy downpours as we head through into saturday to the northern edge of that where is just about cold enough we will see some of that wet weather heading to snow for the south a good deal of cloud there over the philippines but nothing too heavy rain wise it's like the wetter weather would just be in the southern parts there and they gradually drifting their way towards the west in fact watch this area of cloud here because that seems to be developing into an area of low pressure and edging its way towards this of the parts of viet nam so for friday not too much in the way of well . ahead but then the rain begins to increase as we head through saturday on sunday really does look very very wet with some of us hip further south just the usual showers for many of us and those are stretching all the way up into parts of thailand as you would expect now over towards india is in the south about the most active weather thanks to watch topical cycle here it is just before it made landfall and now it's running its way towards the west over land of course it's lost the energy so it's lost its winds so that means we just got the rain to deal
9:09 am
with it will be incredibly wet for here as we head through friday and saturday. the weather sponsored by qatar airways. stories of life. and spring. as a series of short documentaries from around the world were that celebrate the human spirit. against the arts. al-jazeera selects hunted. history has called it the great war in the final episode the two sides fight themselves to a standstill while britain and france conspire behind closed doors to produce a secret agreement that will shape the middle east for the century to come world war one through our. own knowledge is it new yorkers are very receptive to al to
9:10 am
see because it is such an international city they're very interested in that global perspective that al jazeera provides. welcome back you're watching the avs there are these i would be so robin a reminder of our top stories u.s. senators are proposing a ban on arms sales to saudi arabia over the murder of journalist about should she on the war in yemen the bill speed support from members of both democratic and republican. saudi arabia is seeking the death penalty for five suspects charged with murdering a saudi journalist eleven people have been charged in the investigation and korea
9:11 am
says the announcement fall short of expectations. and all other top story british prime minister treason may is standing firm as politicians from a conservative party launch a bid to remove him from office it's in response to her draft divorce deal to withdraw the united kingdom from the european union exit hardliners say the deal makes too many concessions to the cue. ball our top story now jamal khashoggi is murder world leaders and rights groups have been highly skeptical of saudi arabia's changing version of events she was last seen alive entering the saudi consulate in istanbul oct the second turkish security sources moved quickly to say they had information that he'd been killed there and his body dismembered saudi arabia rejected the allegations as baseless lies and insisted the saudi journalists had left the building the same day a week later turkish media published the details of a fifteen member saudi team that had landed in istanbul on the same day that she
9:12 am
disappeared the work the consulate before the journalist arrived as international pressure grew saudi kings the mother later the crown prince told the u.s. president trump that they had no knowledge of what it actually happened eighteen days after the show chief vanished the saudis finally admitted that they accidentally killed him during a fight in the consular office royal court advisors. attorney and deputy intelligence chief there with the siri was sacked and eighteen saudis arrested and then a day later the story shifts again a saudi official says the team sent to confront the shoji killed him in a chokehold after overstepping their orders saudi arabia has now charged eleven suspects overcautious ji's murder but one thing remains unchanged saudi rulers insist they have nothing to do with it giorgio can feel you is the c.e.o. of gulf state analytics he says u.s. senate members are tired of giving saudi arabia the benefit of the doubt. the
9:13 am
narrative about what took place in the consulate last month has changed quite a bit with many contradictions. right now the trump administration vine's itself in a very difficult position they have to deal with pressure from lawmakers who want the white house to hold the saudi state accountable for the journalist's killing but at the same time this administration is so focused on pushing back against iranian expansionism in the region the trumpet ministration is very focused on lucrative arms sales and other geopolitical interests and economic interests in the region so the white house does not want to severely damage ties with riyadh specifically with mohamed bin selam on it's very clear that the white house has gone to pains to give m.b.'s the benefit of the doubt but that's going to be increasingly difficult to do so moving forward anti saudi sentiment has increased
9:14 am
on the u.s. public since october two also we've seen rhetoric about the saudi leadership from u.s. lawmakers which is truly unprecedented especially when it's coming from senators like lindsey graham who throughout his career has been so defensive of saudi arabia on so many occasions i think it's going to be very difficult for the administration to do what it seems that the administration wants to do and that is to convince congress as well as the u.s. public that the saudi government sneery to is accurate of course according to this narrative the crown prince of saudi arabia had nothing to do with jamal how she'll use killing last month but many people are very skeptical and believe that this narrative is false when we come to the mid-term elections members of the newly
