to go back to the negotiating table. also britain's prime minister. but will he be able to carry out. of genocide. welcome to the news of the turkish and us presidents have agreed on the need to prevent a cover up. in a phone call turkish newspaper is reporting investigators have an audio recording of a fifteen member team discussing how to murder before you enter the consulate in istanbul that suggests the murder was premeditated directly contradicting the saudi prosecutor who said the journalist died when an attempt to take him to saudi arabia went wrong. let's get the very latest from mike hanna joins now from washington
2:02 am
d.c. a lot to discuss for both presidents they were in touch with each other and i'm sure investigation was certainly high on the agenda but there were other areas of mutual interest that they need to discuss. here is indeed interestingly enough the details of the conversation have come from the turkish presidency there's been no readout of president trump side of the conversation from the white house at this particular point but all indications are that the issue of jamal khashoggi was right at the top of the agenda that was discussed as we reported there they agreed that there should be no cover up then other issues discussed of common interest to both turkey and the u.s. remembering that relationships were strained in recent months improved somewhat with the turkish decision to release an american pastor who had been imprisoned there and in recent weeks a year relationship seems to be on something of an uptick of crucial importance to

is u.s. support for kurdish militia the p.k. k. which they have reportedly withdrawn such support and that was discussed it would appear president earlier one of the seeking assurances from president trump that the u.s. support for the kurdish militia had been withdrawn that was a major point of contention between the two the other point of contention which has been in place for a long time is the presence in the u.s. offer to low glenn somebody who president earlier one insists was responsible for coup attempt in turkey turkey has been insistent that the u.s. must repatriate him however so far the u.s. has declined to do so he does have a green card he has residence in the united states but certainly this conversation the fact that it took place or a clear indication that relations between the u.s. and the turkey are getting better it would appear and certainly that is good news if there's going to be any cooperation and joint and perhaps even joint
2:04 am
investigation on the issue of jamal khashoggi or for the moment mike will leave it there thank you. now all muslims around the world have been remembering saudi journalist she joining friday prayers that he gathered at mosques in indonesia turkey saudi arabia and the united kingdom and recent reports from istanbul. forty five days after jamal khashoggi murder they come to pray with a grief that permeates a gray rainy day. all the more poignant because of the empty space of the most solid stone here where a coffin should rest one of the show jews friends set the tone of the day after this prayer we are going to look for. justice not anger.
2:05 am
deep grief but we are looking. justice for. another friend expressed similar sentiment even by moment done by us into this was a barbaric act committed in the twenty first century this wasn't just the murder expressions of anguish of regret and the quest for justice amongst it all more revelations from a turkish media about the last moments of jamal khashoggi his life events that dispute the saudi account of what happened. turkey's harriette newspaper says a so far on heard of odia recording disproves the saudi assertion that jews murder was not planned the newspaper says the team can be heard discussing how to kill him the audio apparently contradicts the latest version of events from the saudis who are only twenty four hours ago said he died after being injected with
2:06 am
a large dose of sedative following a brawl. and turkish investigators say it's already been established from the original recording that g. was strangled to death a not drugged a ruling party official who knew well says the saudi investigation can't be credible. it's an investigation that is headed by the crown prince and that investigation says he isn't related to what happened in a church organization of this investigation is problematic you can expect an independent fair judgment from that court among those here were many who didn't know because shoji who was murdered in their tragic way unfortunately so that's why i'm here today it's really symbolic for me. this prayer. is impossible not to react as a muslim and the human being we are here to do. for loved

ones who maintain privacy on this day maybe some level of comfort spiritually but closure seems a long distance away and drew simmons al-jazeera is tumble. envoy says the country's warring parties have committed to attend peace talks in sweden diplomatic editor james bays joins me live from the united nations and what's the u.n. been saying james. important developments in the u.n. security council we're also hearing the new draft resolution is going to be produced by the u.k. and circulated to the other members of the security council for then a potential vote next week now we have had talk of a nationwide cease far in yemen a resolution for that that's not what this resolution is this is a resolution which will focus on the humanitarian situation in yemen but it will call for a sale of hostilities around who data and other humanitarian key points in
2:08 am
yemen and the idea is to repair the ground for peace talks in sweden that are being proposed by the un special envoy martin griffiths is a crucial moment for yemen i've received firm assurances from the leadership of the yemeni parties the governor of yemen of course first and then they are committed to attending these consultations i believe that genuine alike suspect them to continue in that way and to. appear before those consultations and indeed so do the yemeni people who are desperate for a political solution to a war in which they are the main victims well we heard more about the desperation of the yemeni people from the head of the world food program who said he believes that in a matter of months there could be a full scale famine in yemen david beasley has just come back from the country and
2:09 am
in fact forty eight hours ago he was in the port of data he also visited a hospital while he was in yemen and told reporters earlier this one little child and i remember little feet was sticking out the blanket in it was kind of cute and i went to call the little feet you know take it out get a little smile and. just like took on a ghost. and nothing there. and james i'm sure diplomats there will be very interested to see and hear her side is going to respond and react to this yes that is the big question with talk over un security council resolution talk of peace talks ahead how is saudi arabia going to respond i've been speaking to diplomats i've been traveling over the last week or so in washington d.c. here in new york and also in paris and i'm detecting that saudi arabia does not
2:10 am
like these moves it doesn't like the idea of a new u.n. resolution that is not something it wants it's not entirely convinced it wants to have new peace talks taking place the other thing that i'm detecting from speaking to key officials who've been closely observing this is that saudi arabia obviously leads a coalition the other main member of that coalition is the united arab emirates and there seems to be a growing difference of opinion between those two countries with the u.a.e. much keener i think to bring this war to an end or see what happens in the coming days the moment james thank you. well some key conservative politicians and business groups are rallying behind prime minister trees in ways efforts to push through a break that deal agreed with the european union so let's take a look at the latest developments to reason may has installed little known junior health minister stephen barclay as the new secretary he replaces dominic robb who

backbench committee chairman calling for a vote of no confidence by conservative party and these we're told that number is approaching nobody will know until the moment comes but of course if three's amazed voted down to have to stand down whether there are other numbers in her party willing to see her go though is another matter given that five of those senior cabinet ministers have decided to stay on they may know that the numbers simply aren't there to defeat the prime minister. plenty more had hailed the al-jazeera news are including. the struggle the sentence for lanka apology. it has come to blows in parliament for a second day. and more than six hundred people are missing after california's deadly wildfires and family members want answers. and intelligence all four semifinalists the season ending championship. for states to tell its finals from

london the. world leaders are gathering in papua new guinea for the annual asia pacific economic cooperation meeting or apec as it's known u.s. president donald trump's decision to skip the event has allowed chinese leader xi jinping to take center stage an opportunity china is gladly seizing as it vies for more influence in the pacific well andrew thomas is following events for us at the summit in the capital port moresby it's a huge event for pup point new guinea but not quite as big as they might have wanted it to be. sorry this is a massive attack when you give me the poorest country of the nineteen countries that make up in the only country not to posted their summits all together the apec countries make up all than half of the world's total g.d.p.
2:15 am
so there are serious world leaders here but term of them a missing president trump of the united states of course and president putin of russia a huge disappointment to the expected both those leaders here and it does diminish the standing of this conference in the house side and indeed many other people's eyes so big disappointment about that i've been around this city over the last twenty four hours and you really get a sense that this is the she president she arrived on thursday night he'll be here for five days unlike most of the leaders who are flying in for a day or two mike pence the vice president of the u.s. is just coming up the day trip is actually staying ahead she doesn't want to stay in that city doesn't think it's safe enough but as you drive around you really get a sense that this is shot china's show. there are chinese flags everywhere she opened a new road that china had paid for in this city he hosted an event for pacific leaders on friday night this really is his summits for at australia i put together a short report about the issues that will be discussed have a look not. a year ago it looked far from port moresby it would be
2:16 am
ready for the biggest event to papua new guinea has ever hosted but we've chinese and australian help and money the country's leader says it is our very proud of our country and they've been able to step up i'm. going to deliver one of the most memorable and hospitable if it got me to. you know history papua new guinea is the poorest member of the asia pacific economic corporation 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
2:17 am
for five days whereas most leaders will be spending as little time here at all 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 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 patch. this is our part of the world this is where we have special responsibilities we always have we
2:18 am
always we all china quickly we're taught 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 smaller immediates will be concern over waste and corruption associated with hosting the event the country is impoverished with struggling health and education systems so flying in hundreds of brand new cars to shuttle delegates around including forty luxury maseratis from italy has been controversial and unpopular. you see those maseratis driving around the streets of port moresby but otherwise those streets are deserted this is a city that's really been cleared out for this summit much of the summit is actually taking place on two cruise ships that have docked alongside the harbor in port moresby what you can see going on behind me on the big screen is a conference for c.e.o.'s business leaders that's being addressed by mike pence
2:19 am
president xi and others on saturday but it is being posted on board a cruise ship not on land the actual main summit though that will be on land a brand new conference center that's being built by papua new guinea with help from australia and china who put a lot of money into this summit that main summit where all the leaders will meet in person at the game saturday night but most of it will be on sunday that's when the main summits things and issues will be discussed for the moment andrea thank you. the more children have been killed in syria in the first moments of twenty eighteen in any of the years since the seven year war began that's according to the u.n. children's agency unicef. says at least eight hundred seventy children were killed between january and september but that number is likely to be much higher earlier this month thirty children were killed in u.s. led airstrikes in a village in eastern syria the coalition says it was bombing eisel targets at least thirty seven people have died in violence between muslim and christian

2:30 am
welcome back to the news out of our top story and news just coming in is that the washington post is reporting the cia has concluded saudi crown prince mohammed bin ordered the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi don't follows turkish newspaper reports and that investigators have an order recording of a fifteen member saudi team planning the murder before and to the consular office. let's get more on this story from mike hanna our correspondent who's standing by for us in washington explosive revelation really here from the cia and this could have major repercussions in d.c. . well so let's be very clear it's not from the cia it is from the washington post which is reporting that the cia has come to this conclusion the sources that the washington post has are not named in any way they are referred to as people familiar with the situation at the cia in the washington post reporters also
2:31 am
declined to comment on this particular matter but that being said the washington post i'm going with the story saying that the cia have concluded that the crown prince was responsible for the murder of jamal khashoggi among the details that they report is an intercept of a telephone call between the crown prince's brother had been solomon who's the best of the two the united states apparently according to the washington post he phoned jamal khashoggi and advised him to go to the consulate in istanbul to collect his visa from the saudi authorities now no further details emerging on this as i said to we have been unable to independently verify in any way the contents of this particular report now it is believed that the cia has been requested by members of congress to brief them on the latest situation that is likely to increase in pressure in the wake of this particular report both members of the senate and the
2:32 am
house. waiting to hear from the cia director exactly what conclusions the cia may or may not have at this particular stage in terms of the way that washington works mike what sort of pressure does this put on the cia and in terms of the white house even if there is a newspaper report that has been confirmed by the cia quite yet there will be a great deal of speculation will be a great deal of discussion and then when the politicians get involved as you say there's a bipartisan group of senators really wants the u.s. to take much stronger action against saudi arabia at the moment. yes indeed and one must remember in recent days that a number of senators have stated publicly that they believe that the crown prince is responsible for the murder of jamal khashoggi this is come from both republican and democrat senators it's all been stated by members of the house of representatives so certainly from the point of view of congress they believe that
2:33 am
fact has already been established in terms of the statements that they have made but it will bring pressure to bear on the trumpet ministration the administration has put to impose sanctions on seventeen of those who have been arrested by the saudi authorities economic sanctions in terms of the global magnitsky act but congress members absolutely adamant this is simply not enough they also complained at the time in the past twenty four hours that the crown prince is not among those being held accountable who has sanctions imposed against them so these revelations all this report by the washington post likely to be used by members of congress to bring pressure to bear on the white house for president trump finally to come out and state what his belief is at this particular point and importantly what action he intends to take against those who've been found accountable for the moment we'll
2:34 am
leave it there in washington d.c. thank you. let's go back to one of our other top stories that's the issue of breaks it in the chaos that is in suing in the united kingdom as it prepares to leave the european union joining me now is jonathan lisey's deputy director at the think that british influence and he joins me now live from london thanks for your patience are joined sort of course breaking news coming out there from washington let's just begin with the chaos of the last twenty four hours we have to say carol because that's how even people in the united kingdom think about this season barkley the new secretary is a leave supporter he comes from sort of the lower ranks of government but does really make you wonder doesn't it i mean how many people must have been asked george to take this job. that's right i mean stephen barkley isn't even known by some people in his own party let alone in the media and so it makes you realize how little support there is for this breaks a deal amongst press its supporters in the conservative party. the fact that may
2:35 am
have to get as low as him suggests firstly that there is very little support for her and secondly that the job isn't even that important anymore. about what the role or his role will be in embrace it because it seems to be while according to sources there from the prime minister's office that he'll be preparing the u.k. domestically the bracks it because she has the prime minister has certainly her foot firmly on the pedal when it comes to dealing with the e.u. so what's the point of him taking the job when he might not really have much to maneuver with. well he won't be negotiating but he needs to be preparing. britain for bret's it particularly if there's going to be no deal scenario which is so incredibly unlikely or even impossible and also there needs to be some kind of figurehead because of the brics it is still going to happen we're still in the stages of pushing through this vote in parliament which is the most important very
2:36 am
it's the commons would have had in eighty years and so there needs to be someone who is normally in charge of that indeed we have to really think of a rather interesting set of circumstances as we move forward very little time left you've got a prime minister's job on the line a potential low deal bricks it is perhaps likely talk of a general election over these divisions in parliament the u.k. crashing out of the e.u. with no agreement and so you know ratification in the u.k. parliament over this deal is that really looking great for anyone in the u.k. public all political as you head towards march twenty ninth teen that's right so theresa may is probably going to face a very severe confidence next week she may well win it special stumble on even weaker than she is at the moment meanwhile there is no chance the moments of getting this deal through parliament they simply are the numbers and them are in unprecedented territory because no one those will happen they could be
2:37 am
a general election but to reason they would have to call it otherwise the conservatives would have to vote for a no confidence in their own government or there could be a people's vote a referendum but so far the government doesn't support that but that's looking like the luckiest option now and then after we have a people's vote we need to side with the question of the so really there are months of turmoil still to come in britain at the moment indeed you have to watch very carefully what happens for the moment on the list thanks for joining us from our london bureau thanks very much. u.s. president donald trump says that he's written and says for the investigation into russian meddling in the twenty sixteen election trump has repeatedly criticized special counsel robert willis inquiry calling it a witch hunt he says it's drawing to a close and he answered the questions himself my lawyers are working on that i'm working that i write the answers by law is the right answers i write answers i was asked a series of questions i've answered them very easily very easily i'm sure they're tripped up because you know they like to catch people you know with the weather
2:38 am
sunny or was it raining he said it may have been a great day it was rainy therefore he told a lie perjured himself ok so you have to always be careful when you answer questions with people that probably have bad intentions but. you know it's the questions were very routinely answered by me by me. the number of people listed as missing in a major wildfire in the u.s. state of california has now risen to six hundred thirty one sixty three people are going to have died after more charred remains of the weather has helped firefighters battle the worst flames in northern california for one hundred years rob rebels as the latest. climate change has come to california severe drought in santa ana winds a simple spark launches two fires that still have not been stopped the wind fueled flames moved so fast many had to drive through the fire to get out.

this driver survived but many more did not trapped in traffic with the fire moving faster than they could an untold number have died calling for help that couldn't get there in time the number of people who are still looking for more and counted for has increased to six hundred thirty one this number increased by five hundred one people now hundreds of volunteers are doing disk gruesome we're looking for the remains of those who couldn't make it out but experts say it's possible many will never be found my colleagues are finding profoundly degraded human remains the term of art they use as creamy went to is the consequence of combustion at high temperature for the thousands who escaped now a waiting game of wonder and worry did their houses survive how are their neighbors

2:41 am
murder happened and other people got hurt i looked into the matter today and it's something that has stirred people up as a result there has been radical right wing demonstrations for which there is no justification at least for parts of it for the that doesn't mean that we don't have the freedom to demonstrate people can express their opinions but that does not justify the use of national socialist symbols and the like her visit had started earlier in the day with a photo call at the local leisure center players from the chemist's niners basketball team were put through their paces as a curious chancellor looked on the problem frank of america always for watching friendly matches here is one thing in chemist's the political opponents out on the streets it's much harder thing to try and they because they come from across the state of saxony and beyond far right supporters whose cry is medical most vec
2:42 am
medical must go they don't believe her and instead support the populist alternative for germany one of its local members of parliament gave merkel's visit short shrift . the complete opposite way. feel free to strip in my opinion this is it is far too late she should have come here immediately after august events and a murder that happened or she achieved by coming here now is to be rejected by many people that is the voice of a party many people encampments reject nevertheless some here say they are concerned at the turn events of taken. many citizens are worried of course not for nothing when you hear that kids young people living and dying don't feel so good that didn't used to be the care it's definitely like that i have kids myself so i can say that from my own experience. the far right groups had hoped thousands would come to protest against machall visit in the end just a few hundred gathered to reject her and her policies these protesters say they are
2:43 am
