8:02 pm
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 briefing with madness pompei o n g 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 direction 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 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
8:03 pm
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 well also quoting anonymous officials confirming the report of the cia's finding it is very important it's very significant. what the washington post new york times. c n b c n n other outlets over the last hours. reported that the cia internal assessment now is pointing straight years. in some as having ordered this operation this has never happened before in the cia will probably will not comment on this kind of report however the washington post
8:04 pm
wouldn't report this unless they were accurately reporting what the cia 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 mike hanna al-jazeera washington well speaking a few hours ago just before he left for california president trump said the cia was going to brief him on the latest findings. the old great ally saudi arabia they give us a lot of jobs and give us a lot of a lot of economic development. but they should be exactly where the. development and i also take that you know president i think
8:05 pm
a lot of things that you can raise rosen children following the storm from washington d.c. couple of things in play look side here rosalynn that is one the u.s. relationship donald trump's relationship particularly with saudi arabia but also his relationship with his own intelligence community. that's right the president has been extremely critical of the u.s. intelligence community because of the ongoing allegations that there may have been unsavory relationships between donald trump's presidential campaign in two thousand and sixteen and persons acting on behalf of the russian government the president has always been very critical of these allegations even though the intelligence community did conclude that there was interference by russian persons in the house of the russian government in the twenty sixteen presidential election it's also a matter of the president dealing with the political pressure on trying to respond
8:06 pm
to this situation involving the murder of jamal khashoggi the saudi journalist and u.s. resident the administration has already issued two rounds of sanctions against a pretty full that the u.s. says were involved in the murder but none of these sanctions have actually reached the level of the saudi crown prince and mohamed bin solid month and of course while the president is very keen to come all to talk about trying to preserve the economic ties between the u.s. and saudi arabia let's also not forget that the u.s. is looking to saudi arabia to help it in its efforts to isolate iran which has been trying to build a nuclear weapons program and in the u.s. is eyes expand its political and economic influence in an unsavory way around the middle east so there are a lot of factors at play here as donald trump tries to decide really how to respond
8:07 pm
to the cia's conclusion that mohamed bin solomon the saudi crown prince in fact was the one who ordered the murder of jamal khashoggi rather than jordan following developments from washington thank you. also we've had developments in turkey itself where the murder took place tony berkley has more from outside the saudi consulate in istanbul but the steady trickle of revelations and information coming out from turkey. it's interesting that trump is talking about jobs here they're talking about justice and the cia revelation is something that very much in dorsey's what the turkish government has said almost from day one and this was a premeditated murder they pointed the finger of suspicion quite early at the crown saudi crown prince and this really affirms that what they've been saying is correct because this was far from what the saudis claim a and that hoc killing on the spur of the moment this was
8:08 pm
a meticulously planned operation to kill an opponent of the saudi stablish ment's so it's reaffirm what they've said the latest information that's been coming out now to is concerning how he was killed either by a rope or a a plastic bag over his head the newspaper which has been the source of a lot of the turkish government leaks that mr casady was injured in jack did with a coagulant and this is suppose that this was because to stop the flow of blood so when his body was dismembered would be less traces of his d.n.a. and there's been a joint saudi and turkish investigation into the killing no d.n.a. traces were found either at the saudi consulate way he was killed or at the consulate general house so they did a pretty good job of cleaning up but this report reaffirms what the turkish government said but what does that mean at the end of the day because as tom says jobs are important but justice here is something they think is very important also . so that at the news now protests over the rise in fuel prices have turned violent
8:09 pm
in france one person die after being struck by a car during a demonstration drive is around green about a twenty percent rise in diesel prices this year due to the green taxes president emanuel micron says however they are needed to cut pollution more from these by impacts. they have been several small pockets of process surfacing on the streets of paris in different parts of the city similar to new slee over the course of the day here or the seans elisei the main artery running through the french capital several hundred demonstrators have gathered as you can see the police are out in force to try and make sure that the streets of the capital remain open and that cars are allowed to continue driving on the roads according to the interior ministry this is one of a thousand demonstrations that have been taking place across mainland france involving as many as fifty thousand people there are two things uniting the demonstrators nationwide firstly these are vests. all the demonstrators are wearing
8:10 pm
it's very much the uniform of protests and secondly the growing anger and frustration at the increase of the price of diesel and petrol that in some areas has gone up by as much as twenty percent. i'm wearing this yellow vest for the simple reason there are too many taxis in disputes actually simply kind of turn around eight we just keep getting tags and we getting nothing back but you know. this is a very difficult one for president to manual macro and he is sticking to his guns in believing that this environmental tax as it's been described is a vital to improve the health and the ecology of frons but not everyone agrees people believe the big business of heavy industry should be tax first rather than ordinary people but he may need to sit up and listen because all of his political rivals on the far right and the far left are throwing their support behind this movement and every accuse of politicizing it but emanuel mccrone also knows that
8:11 pm
support for him in the polls is cream sliding he's watching these demonstrations very closely and he has to make sure most certainly that these demos don't snowball any further. and they're not the only demonstrations in europe this saturday live pictures from athens now thousands marching to mark forty five years since a student revolt against a military junta there this goes back to nine hundred seventy three when at least twenty four people were killed in a military crackdown it happened at the athens polytechnic and it looks to be many thousands of people out on the streets of athens marking that forty fifth anniversary this saturday. the relatives of the forty four crew on a knowledge and time navy submarine so devastated by the news that the wreckage has finally been found a u.s. undersea mapping company made the discovery a year and a day after the sun on disappeared the argentine navy confirmed that the sun on

8:18 pm
with the cia after u.s. media reported that the cia believes the saudi crown prince was the one who ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi the cia's finding directly contradict saudi claims that muhammad bin someone was not involved in the journalist's murder in istanbul last month. in france scuffles have taken place between protesters and police during demonstrations over rising fuel prices one persons died been struck by drivers are angry over twenty percent rise in diesel prices this year due to so-called green taxes residential menu micron says they're needed to cut aleutian. and the missing argentinian submarine which disappeared last year with forty four crew on board has been found on the seabed a year after it disappeared into navy confirms the submarine had collapsed in imploded and its debris was scattered over an area of about seventeen minutes. iraq's president has met his iranian counterpart rouhani during
8:19 pm
a visit from this is just weeks after the u.s. of course reimposed its sanctions on iran's key oil industry as well as banking and shipping sectors as more. during their talks iranian president hassan rouhani and his iraqi counterpart barham sali discussed the importance of security cooperation between their two oil rich nations rouhani made the point that it is up to the countries in the region to handle their own security a familiar tactic iranian leaders use to publicly bolster the importance of their own rule simultaneously characterizing the role of the united states as foreign interference. that i had a dream which were both of the opinion that all people will benefit from stability in this region we don't need foreign intervention regional countries should have closer relationships and mutual cooperation especially iran and iraq at one and has time to form a new regional establishment that could cater to the interests of all nations and
8:20 pm
so we attach a high importance to the role that iran in iraq must be an area for common interest for regional nations not a field for conflict in design the economies of iraq and iran rely on their bilateral trade and iraq is one of the few countries to get a temporary u.s. waiver to keep buying iranian oil and gas and despite threats by u.s. president donald trump to punish anyone doing business with iran rouhani and solid discuss the potential for expanding annual trade from twelve to twenty billion dollars they also talked about setting up a free trade zone as well as a railway line to more closely connected to neighbors but iraq is caught in a delicate balancing act the united states has had a major influence over iraq's security and politics since they invaded the country in two thousand and three neighbor iran once an enemy is now a key ally that helped iraq defeat i so while the iraqi president's visit could be a show of support for iran in the face of american sanctions iraqi leaders no doubt
8:21 pm

earlier interviews that his government will engage it's fine now but it means that india and the neighborhood will have more parity of china's president is hitting out at u.s. trade tariffs and says protectionist actions are short sighted and doomed to fail she jinping was speaking in papa new guinea at the opening of the apec summit twenty one members of the asia pacific economic cooperation aim to improve their relations and trite but the world's two largest economies the u.s. and china have imposed sanctions on each other's exports the host papa new guinea is apex poorest member local people though are hoping the event will bring some more trade their way and thomas is reporting for us from port moresby. technology and international trade mean papua new guinea and weavers can sell their baskets to anyone in the world crystal cube developed an app to help and at this weekend's
