8:00 am
nothing to bring her story to the public. and some stories can only be told by those who are miles on the true. news from the heart of the viewfinder series on al-jazeera. media report the cia has concluded. this is a crucial moment. the u.n.
8:01 am
says the war and sides in the conflict are ready to go back to the negotiating table. a summit for dialogue turns into a war of words between the u.s. and china will be live at the apec meeting on. the. us media is reporting that the cia has concluded the saudi crown prince mohammed and solomon ordered the killing of tomatoes shockey last month the wall street journal says congressional leaders had 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 someone who was also the saudi ambassador to the u.s. had with guaranteeing his safety if he came to the consulate in istanbul we're going live to enter simmons' in istanbul in just a few minutes first to go to mike hanna and washington d.c.
8:02 am
so mike this information was leaked to the washington post but there are other media outlets that are also confirming this information now indeed yes the cia has been the lead u.s. body in investigating the murder of jamal khashoggi that style rick to gina helpful went to turkey had meetings with the turkish counterparts but according to the washington post report this is just a little bit of the information that the cia has gleaned using multiple information sources to paint a picture that the washington post reports indicates that very strongly that the crown prince ordered the murder of jamal khashoggi now this was followed as you say by a number of news outlets a rip repeating this report but also quoting their own anonymous sources confirming it so certainly this was a massive story in terms of the u.s. media and certainly the number of sources reporting it would appear to indicate its
8:03 am
veracity. in recent days a number of members of congress have demanded that muhammad have been silent be held accountable either by way of tweets or in the case of senator bob corker during a debate about yemen in the senate i asked for our level of briefing with matters pompei oh and yeah i asked for the comment assumes we get back to share with us what is happening with saudi arabia on both fronts both yemen and what is happening as it relates to the journalist who was assassinated in my opinion at the graduation of the crown prince of saudi arabia us now the washington post reports the cia has concluded that the saudi crown prince ordered the assassination of journalist jamal khashoggi the sit says according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity the report says in reaching his conclusions the cia examined multiple sources of intelligence including
8:04 am
a phone call that the crown prince's brother and ambassador to the u.s. had with the journalist before his murder khaled bin solomon was quick to deny the allegation saying on twitter i never talk 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. within hours several of the news organizations including the new york times and the wall street journal were also quoting anonymous officials confirming the report of the cia's finding although it is funny important it's very significant. what the washington post in new york times. c m b c n n other outlets over the last hours. reported that the cia internal assessment now is pointing straight years.
8:05 am
in some as having ordered this operation this has never happened before at the cia we probably will not comment on this kind of report however the washington post wouldn't report this unless they were accurately reporting where they believe the cia said so which is a slight nuance now one can anticipate that the congressional oversight committees will have been briefed or demand to be briefed on this the reports alleging muhammad have been solomon's involvement unlikely to field even though the congressional demands that punitive measures be taken against the crown prince and his government the question is whether the president has been briefed by the cia on its reported conclusions and if so whether he would be prepared to back away from his stated reluctance to take action against the saudi government and its leader as . the question into is why this leak happened it's not only the case of one
8:06 am
publication but numerous publications getting a number of sources in what does appear to be a coordinated dissemination of information well that's going to be much speculation in coming days as to why this leak happened if it is indeed accurate and certainly they're going to be questions from the white house as to why intelligence organizations if they did had made this information available to the media all right and i cannot live in washington my thank you and your sentence joins us live now from istanbul so this this new information that there that's out the public now entering a reaction from turkey. well it's early in the morning here yes there are headlines in place and online and in the papers now reaching the streets and some of them that this blockbuster story has been
8:07 am
published by the washington post giving details of it and thus far as the washington post is concerned that story broke off to well after a telephone call between donald trump and rosie type two on the turkish president wasn't connected in any way with the blockbuster story but the two men did discuss the khashoggi case a background briefing says they agreed on the need to shed light on all aspects of the case whatever that might mean and also they talked about the need to prevent a cover up that circs stressing that point in that briefing about the telephone conversation now in the run up to the publication of the news story there was a whole day of prayer in absentia funeral and in absentia for. not only just in turkey but also in saudi arabia in medina in mecca and also in
8:08 am
london amongst other countries but this was the main spot for the grieving istanbul . forty five days of the jamal khashoggi his murder they come to pray. with a grief that permeates a great rainy day oh my god about whom the more poignant because of the empty space of the moose on a 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. but deep grief but we are looking. this tinsley justice for. another friend expressed similar sentiment even by moment done by us into this was
8:09 am
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 harriot newspaper says a so far on heard of odia recording disproves the saudi assertion that jews murdered 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 the cause shoji was strangled to death a not drugged
8:10 am
a ruling party official who knew kushal well says the saudi investigation can't be credible to the source that mikey pushed him on it's an investigation that is headed by the crown prince and that investigation says he isn't related to what happened in a trade 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 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. this is impossible not to react as a muslim and the human being we are here to do duty for jamal khashoggi for loved ones who maintain privacy on this day there may be some level of comfort spiritually but closure seems a long distance away. so and for the revelation that there is likely another tape
8:11 am
that exists of what happened inside that consulate how might that play into. the public assertion that that. was involved in what happened. it's difficult to say but it certainly could have a bearing on it's does actually show beyond doubt according to the turks that this was not was definitely a premeditated murder of their that's indicated by the fact that you hear on this type of power many of them the team discussing well ahead of arriving in the coincidence on october the second that whole plan to murder him furthermore the recordings of international telephone calls not just warm but a number of them a small number and on one of those we have the transcript that that the main main
8:12 am
member of the killing gang actually said on the phone to in a call to riyadh that the job was done boss woods that effect in arabic he was referring to tell the boss that the job is done should i say and that's really does indicate that there was a line of commom from riyadh now it was described by some investigators as certainly isn't a smoking gun as such and it's not clear whether there is a smoking gun however this revelation this claim should i say about how they had been solomon which is firmly denied by the saudi ambassador to the united states is explosive and of course you've had a whole range of other claims being made in the u.s. media to which a mike has referred and joining this saturday as it unfolds here in turkey there's going to be undoubtedly reaction from politicians here too and in far as the
8:13 am
investigation team is concerned i'm sure all the signs were pointing towards this was what they felt was the case was that mohammed bin saddam and what was behind it was. directing it however there was a fear that there will be a complete cover up that isn't entirely put to bed yet there is still a concern that the narrative from saudi which is different so often this latest version of events has been described by some in the security community as the day she is ready because it doesn't really fit with them the logic of what had happened in the defense so drastically from the original version of events and then another version of events which was suggesting it wasn't it wasn't it was premeditated or they did have a fight as soon as they arrived at the consulate and he was killed now this is
8:14 am
really a build up to something much bigger it's felt here in turkey in that tape in the tapes the the proof they say is there that there was a murder and a strong suggestion that mohammed bin solomon was the perpetrator in riyadh or under seventy five in istanbul andrew thank you how does president xi jinping says world growth is being overshadowed by protectionism speaking at the apec summit in papua new guinea he referred to us china trade tensions calling protectionist actions shortsighted and doomed to fail us president onil trumps decision to skip the yearly event has allowed them to take center stage at that summit and are some thomas joins us live from the summit so there have been opening remarks so far what is the tone and are. or a shell the sea in a perfect stance for cooperation but in the speeches that leaders have been giving
8:15 am
so far on saturday it seems so stirred more for regional competition and certainly that is true first of foremost for the speeches of both paying and mike pence that he speaks as well from political leaders of russia malaysia australia and chile but it was really those two speeches because the vice president of the u.s. mike pence i was the president of china they represent the two biggest economies that are part of the group now mike pence used his speech really to take a lot of digs at china particularly the way that china goes around making loans he warned other countries represented here to be very careful of accepting loans with strings attached he said very pointedly that u.s. loans do not come with a constricting belt or a one way road a very direct jab really get china's. belts and road initiative saying investment all across asia and the pacific and indeed world why it's a very pointed job their president g eight well he was all about donald trump tower
8:16 am
of strength might not be here but his policies are certainly being talked about let's listen to both those leaders so ball would really resorting to old practices such as protectionism unilateral ism will not result problems but also add to the uncertainties to the global economy history tells us taking the road of confrontation whether in the form of a cold war open war or trade war will produce no win it. we have great respect for president. and great respect for china. but in the president's words china is taking advantage of the united states for many many years. in those days are over. as the president said and china has tremendous barriers they have tremendous tariffs and as we all know their country and gauges and quotas forced technology transfers intellectual property theft industrial subsidies on an unprecedented scale so enter this as a big event obviously but not as many big players this year tell us tell us why.
8:17 am
of papua new guinea this is absolutely huge this country has never hosted an event of this size it is by some knowledge in the poorest country that is part of the i hate group the apec group overall nineteen countries plus hong kong and taiwan so twenty one members officially together they represent more than half of the world's total g.d.p. but papua new guinea is a tiny tiny part of that so huge excitement. hosting this big event many many roads closed off a lot of the events actually the speeches that you saw of itself there actually took place in a on a cruise ship that has been brought in because there aren't really the facilities in the city to host events of this size alone the main apec summit itself will be held at a new conference center called apec house that'll happen on sunday as for what we're expecting will be a photo opportunity with all the leaders later on saturday then a dinner for them all on saturday night but the main talks will be on sunday but although those are the official events it's the kind of the bilateral meetings the
8:18 am
sideline meetings that perhaps tell us more about what's going on here i'll give an example president jay last night on friday night i should say hosted a reception for pacific island leaders particularly those he invests heavily in in terms of aid on investment projects but also interesting lee only those specific a lot of countries that recognize china and not taiwan meanwhile across town taiwan hosted its own events for the smaller number of countries that recognize it's so just with aids and investment food and drinks receptions come with strings attached if you want them from china's president then you better economics china and not taiwan and it's kind of that geo political context that's on show here as much as it is about the official talks the communique will come out sunday it will be very interesting to see what that says given the blunt way in which my parents certainly and president g. have begun this aipac summit. enter thomas i thank you. so ahead on

than the past twenty four hours a number of politicians have stated bluntly that they believe that the crown prince mohammed bin sol man 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 trump 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 war in parties will attend the upcoming peace talks in sweden meanwhile the fighting in yemen continues the rebels say civilians schools and hospitals in the port city for data were hit in the latest airstrikes by the saudi led coalition. this is a crucial moment for yemen i've received assurances from the leadership of the yemeni parties the government yemen of course first and then they are committed to
