a crucial moment for yemen. the war in sides in yemen in the conflict there ready to go back to the negotiating table. britain's prime minister appoints a new negotiator but will he be able to carry out her mission. supporting the cia has concluded the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi last week last month that is the wall street journal says congressional leaders have been informed about these developments on thursday washington post says the cia examined multiple sources of intelligence they include a phone call that the prince's brother caliban solomon who was also the saudi ambassador to the u.s. had with khashoggi guaranteeing his safety if he came to the saudi consulate in istanbul however collins on one has denied that conversation took. lacey tweeted as
we told the washington post the last contact i had with mr pachachi was via text on october twenty sixth two thousand and seventeen i never talked to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to turkey for any reason i asked the u.s. government to release any information regarding this claim they're going live to enter cements and stop on just a few minutes first let's go to mike hanna and washington d.c. so this this demand from the conferences brother that the u.s. release whatever other information that they have mike as a reason to think that they will the cia certainly seems to want this information out well the washington post originally reported the c n n a cia findings but this was followed very quickly by a large number of other news organizations all of which were quoting sources familiar with the situation now it would appear that there is some sort of leak all that this information has been intentionally put out to public certainly in recent
days that congress has been heated in its dumond's that the crown prince be held accountable for the murder of jamal khashoggi the issue is now whether president trump himself has been briefed on these cia finding should they indeed be accurate and if so what action is he going to take is he going to backtrack away from his stated position that he does not want to impose any form of punitive action against either the saudi arabia or indeed its government and mike to that point donald trump has been it seems that he and the white house have been on one path and congress members of congress from both parties have been on a completely different path or remind us of i mean there are people in congress that have been trying to call saudi arabia on the carpet for quite some time. indeed yes started long before the murder of jamal khashoggi particularly with the war in yemen congress had been extremely uncomfortable about the u.s.
involvement in that war and there had been a move to hold saudi arabia accountable for its conduct during those military operations but with the death of jamal khashoggi the saudi feeling in congress was galvanized in a way there was absolute horror at the nature of his death and in recent days there has been a congressperson after congressperson who has repeated the assertion that the crown prince must be held accountable that in all likelihood he is responsible for the murder of the journalist so the conditions the feelings in congress have certainly been very heated far at all odd says you point out from that of president trump himself he has repeatedly backed away from any direct accusation of the saudi government now in recent days the trumpet ministration has imposed sanctions against seventeen individuals now members of congress say ok that's fair enough but it's simply not enough and there again comes
a question from several members from both sides of the aisle why is the crown prince not on the list of those being sanctioned now the situation appears to be coming to a head once more the report from the washington post and so many other news need new media outlets is likely to galvanize congress even further to demand that the president take a position on the matter and that he back away from what many members of congress say is an attempt to prevent accountability at the highest levels of the saudi government ok mike hanna live in washington d.c. mike thank you and enter simmons has been following this from istanbul also enter any reaction so far from turkey. michele it's too early in the morning to gauge any reaction from turkey or egypt to on the turkish president will be attending a public event later on saturday and we expect something to be said there he
actually did take a phone call with the united states president donald trump on friday evening and the background we have on that from the turkish size is that the two men agreed on the need to shed light on all aspects of the has showed case and also the need to prevent a cover up that last sentence very much stressed in that background briefing now and one last sort of president trump a week ago in paris at the armistice day events and discussed the case that he hasn't really been seen in public since he did give a very big briefing the turkish media on his way back from paris emphasizing that he was staying on the case he would cooperate with any country that wanted to pursue this that he was adamant that justice had to be seen to be done his foreign
minister has been echoing those thoughts and now this major event in terms of the washington post breaking this news that it's concluded that mohammed bin solomon was the perpetrator of the man who ordered the murder that is going to really really really shake turkey but in many ways it was expected and of course what's the washington post was doing on friday and preparing that report while it was going on right across turkey there were prayers being said for khashoggi not only here but also in saudi arabia and other parts of the world but this is what happened it is temple. forty five days of the jamal khashoggi is murder they come to pray. with a grief that it's a gray rainy day. abound all the more poignant because of the empty space on the move in 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. but 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 little more revelations from the turkish media about the last moments of jamal khashoggi is life events that dispute the saudi account of what happened. took his harriet newspaper says a so far on hood 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 a large dose of sedative following a brawl. and turkish investigators say it's already been established from the original recording that close shoji 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 each one 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 he was murdered in the treasury quite unfortunately so that's why i'm here today it's really
symbolic for me to this prayer. that is impossible not to react as a muslim and the human being we are here to do all us duty for jamal khashoggi for loved ones who maintain privacy on this day maybe some level of comfort spiritually but closure seems a long distance away. so enter the the revelation the reports that there is possibly be existence another tape what do we know about that could that possibly play and to the reporting from the washington post that the crown prince was involved. i would say that that certainly the washington post is acting primarily on what it has from the cia on how had been sound and some of the evidence there but yes that could be aspects to these tapes that the washington post is using and its conclusion as it puts it this tape you
know we're talking about here was recorded before. actually got into the the consulate and so what is sad is you hear the team discussing the murder itself and this puts to bed any assertion from the saudis that there was no premeditated approach to this murder that it was more or less the decision made by the leader of the team so this again the turks pointing to a whole stream of evidence that that actually contradicts what the saudi is saying and the turkish say they can prove it and so really we're getting a very good commentary from the turks on what the saudis have been saying i mean varying from the saudis being oday shoes and in returning to this this approach that saying that it happened almost by accident that it was a type of rogue operation or day she says one would desperate is another all right

the best condition as you and it is a replica of the gronk a otherwise known as the international kilogram prototype copies like this a calibrated against the original roughly every forty years or so increasing the possibility of inaccuracy that's unlikely to matter much when you're mixing ingredients together for a cake or measuring apples in the supermarket when you're mixing chemicals or putting together the ingredients in sensitive pharmaceuticals hyper accuracy matters. so what you're replacing the growing k. is the new standard kilogram the answer lies in quantum physics obviously the kilogram will be based on a universal constant to nature such as gravity or the speed of light is called the planck constant very simply it describes the behavior of particles and waves in the atomic scale and is measured using a complex instrument known as the kibble balance the world is shifting to this.

. in the past twenty four hours a number of politicians have stated bluntly that they believe that the crown prince mohammed bin solomon is responsible and should be held accountable for the murder of jamal khashoggi so certainly this is going to be more ammunition to those politicians to bring pressure to bear on president trying to take some more tangible action not just against individuals that have been identified by the saudi authorities but also possibly against the crown prince himself the united nations special envoy for yemen martin griffith says the warring parties will attend the upcoming peace talks in sweden who the fighters say civilian schools and hospitals in the port city a few data were hit in the latest airstrikes by the saudi led coalition this 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 and i expect them to continue
