reluctance to act on the journalists killing democrat adam schiff is set to become the house intelligence committee chairman next year he's promising what he calls a deep dive into washington's ties with riyadh examining deaths the war in yemen and the stability of the saudi royal family and some of donald trump's republican colleagues have warned that his failure to punish the kingdom will have dangerous consequences president jordan has this update from washington d.c. . the murder of jamal khashoggi the washington post columnist may not be resonating with ordinary americans but for their representatives in the u.s. congress this is very much a controversy that is top of mind the hill newspaper is reporting that the entire senate is going to get a briefing in the coming week perhaps from the secretary of state like john pale and the defense secretary jim mattis about the u.s.
5:07 am
his relationship with saudi arabia apparently this briefing is going to take a look at everything from how the white house is not accepting the cia's determination that murder was done at the behest of the saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomonic it's also going to be taking a look at the financial relationship between the united states and saudi arabia and it's going to be taking a look at the national security relationship between the two countries especially when light of the ongoing civil war in yemen one in which the saudis have been accused of violating the human rights of civilians in that war torn country by bombing civilian targets under the pretense of going after the fighters who want to take control of the government this hearing could possibly be made public because it's a opportunity for the general public to listen to senators question these two cabinet members but the real import of this potential hearing is that it would give the
5:08 am
senators both democratic and republican more ammunition on deciding how to hold saudi arabia accountable not just for its conduct in the yemeni civil war but just as important for the murder of jamal khashoggi both republicans and democrats have been extremely critical of riyadh because of the murder and they say that it is not for the united states to be giving any sort of political or diplomatic cover to a country that would go out and willingly target and then murder some. that it considers a threat to its ongoing political low rule this is also a situation where the members of congress are going to find themselves pretty much in a fight with the white house the u.s. president donald trump has insisted that saudi arabia's importance in jail pill political affairs is much more important than trying to hold its leadership accountable for the murder of jamal khashoggi the president has even been
5:09 am
dismissive of the cia's conclusions saying that it's more of a feeling than actual analysis that's not sitting well with members of the senate and certainly not with members of the health so not only is there a potential big hearing coming in the coming days on capitol hill but there will also be intelligence committee hearings at least in the house of representatives come january the case has been dominated by chris some revelations sudden twists and finger pointing as political ramifications continue to evaporate tony but he looks back at what's happened since the journalist walked into saudi arabia's istanbul consulate on a second. it was meant to be a new beginning for jamal khashoggi a new wife a new home and a new country but turkey was where he died an exiled journalist who dared to question and authoritarian leader his death in the saudi consulate in istanbul could so easily have been missed or even forgotten had it not been for the secret
5:10 am
audio recordings from the scene no one really knows exactly how these recordings came about either the turkish security service it bugged the consulate or a concert official with a conscience recorded them in the end it doesn't really matter what matters is that they expose the lies and deception surrounding this murder at first the denials are strong on october third the saudi crown prince mohammed bin sultan denied all knowledge of the killings saying mr casady disappeared after he left the consulate building an october the eighth his brother been salomon the saudi ambassador to the u.s. repeated the claim but on october the twelfth according to cia sources reported saudi crown prince asked jerrod krishna president tom son in law why the outrage is because saudi was a dangerous islamist this anger the turkish authorities and that is when the audio recordings started to be leaked. on october thirteenth eleven days after mr casady was killed the turkish newspaper subba published details of the killing it said
5:11 am
they came from a recording from his i watch that was sync to his i phone held by his turkish fiance outside the consulate the i watched part is perhaps not correct but the newspaper said the recording was of the journalist being tortured and then murdered this is when the picture and the response started to change with such grim and irrefutable evidence it was difficult for this out and out culture of denial to continue and if you're over suspicious or cynical nature this is when you could believe that and agree narrative was beginning to take shape and an element of collusion was starting not just in saudi arabia on october the fifteenth president donald trump introduces the element of rogue killers maybe being responsible he repeated maybe two days later my comp a of the u.s. secretary of state was dispatched to riyadh where he stressed the strong alliance between the two countries and said we face our challenges together the past the day and tomorrow those challenges then got harder on october the seventeenth the

turkish daily yeni shafiq printed more details about the killing revealing the concerns of the saudi consulate general in istanbul he asked the hit team to do it somewhere else the paper reports that he was told to shut up if he wanted to live back in saudi saudi arabia as noted began to change at this point on october the nineteenth the saudi attorney general said the journalist was killed during a fight on october the twenty first the saudi foreign minister adel algae of their followers president trumps line and says mr khashoggi was killed by a rogue elements and insisted the crown prince had nothing to do with it it's interesting to see who these rogue elements are according to the information available they include some of the most trusted members of mohamed bin salman's personal security team and a forensic expert and they acted under the orders of the deputy head of saudi intelligence in a country where the crown prince exercises such an bride. per hour it's unbelievable to some that such a mission could have been undertaken without his knowledge on october the twenty
5:13 am
second the saudis introduced a new version saying that it was an accident that mr kosofsky raised his voice the team panicked moved to restrain him and then had him in a choke hold in which he died on the same day this was dispelled by more audio revelations in the newspaper which revealed new recordings that mr cumshaw ji was either strangled with a belt or is fixated with a plastic bag after cia director gina hospital listened to the recordings in a visit to turkey saudi arabia changed its story once again on october the twenty fifth after more than three weeks of denials and implausible explanations the saudi attorney general finally admitted the murder it was premeditated he later and now to the death penalty for five of the team but with no further details and stressed that the crown prince was not implicated. on november the sixteenth the cia leak their findings with one official saying it was blindingly obvious who was responsible three days later more audio details released by her newspaper revealing
5:14 am
just before the murder exactly how the hit team was going to commit the killing and who would do what the paper said the recordings also detailed nineteen phone calls that were made to riyadh after the killing including one in which the caller said tell the boss the deed is done on the same day habit turk online newspaper reveals more from the consulate audio recordings with mr being grabbed to soon as he walked in and being called a traitor and the man who posed as his double to give the impression the journalist left the consulate saying it is spooky wearing the clothes of a man we killed twenty minutes ago when president trump declared his support for the saudi crown prince he said there was no direct proof against mohammed bin salmen on november the twenty second harriet made the strongest allegation against the crown prince stating that the cia has an order recording between mohamed bin selman and his brother in washington ordering mystica shaadi to be silenced it hasn't changed the mind of president donald trump it's business as usual with saudi

5:19 am
thousand. life in this isolated corner of the sun hold this it is a struggle temperatures as high as fifty degrees celsius and sandstorms and drought but for now they have no choice but to stay with these decent healthcare or not medium which is iraq mexico's incoming government is in talks with u.s. officials about a plan for mexico to host asylum seekers while their case is a heard in u.s. courts it's a pressing issue at the moment as thousands of central americans have gathered on the mexican side of the u.s. border hoping to cross mexico's incoming interior minister says there's no agreement yet on hosting u.s. asylum seekers but tweets from donald trump seem to suggest that there has been some kind of deal migrants at the southern border will not be allowed into the united states until their claims are individually approved in court we will only allow those who come into our country illegally other than that our very strong
5:20 am
policy is catch and detain no releasing into the u.s. all will stay in mexico if there any reason it becomes necessary we will close our southern border there is no way that the united states will after decades of abuse put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore let's speak to ana maria salazar slack in the mexican city of or she is a former u.s. deputy assistant secretary of defense for drug enforcement policy she was also a policy advisor to the u.s. special envoy for the americas and thanks for being with us let's start with president trying to tweets this suggests it's a done deal is it. i don't think it's a done deal but i don't doubt that there has been conversations between the incoming government which by the way the new president will be sworn in next saturday's who are pretty much less than less than a week away from having
5:21 am
a new president in mexico so i wouldn't doubt that conversations are taking place between the incoming government and the white house this conversation has been also been taking place with the current government which has been reluctant to sign on to any document by which the mexican government would keep it silent seekers in mexico in part because of it has to do with resources in part it has to do it would be criticized in mexico if the mexican government would accept it such in a green mint but there may be a way i mean i think what they're going to try to do is to reach a some type of. informal agreement by which mexico would keep them which would keep the caravan or at the keep the migrants here in mexico till the situation is in the united states but it's very controversial here in mexico and i believe president elect abroad or joining the campaign or in the lead up to the campaign called trump
5:22 am
and neo-fascist and now that he's taking less than a week in your mind what's changed since then and what kind of political ramifications might he face. then also during the during the electoral process and even during this transition that is taking place president elect and that monopoly sort out has spoken highly of the us of the us president so it's kind of we don't know what we don't have not clear to us whether this is going to be easy or relationship between mexico and the united states now that we have a new president i could probably bet it's going to be very there's going to be a lot of frictions and potentially there's going to be a big debate in terms of what to do with these migrants because ultimately the are in mexico and mexico is has this humanitarian crisis in the border in one of the cities of the one i've spoke to the mayor on my many of my radio shows and he's
5:23 am
very very very not only frustrate crowds he desperate because the city doesn't have the infrastructure to receive these number of migrants so he's declared a humanitarian crisis with the expectation that the united nations and the federal government is going to come in to rescue the city which they haven't done up until now so it's not an easy situation for up for the local governments it's not an easy situation for the government is really not going to be an easy situation for the new incoming government and i want to ask you a little more about these numbers we've seen five thousand people arriving in the last two weeks a thousand five hundred more expected literally in the next few days if you were talking about this humanitarian crisis what kinds of resources does mexico need for a deal like this it is that even possible and i also want to ask you about the areas where they might be kept we're talking about border states here with the u.s. and you've had lots of experience with dealing with drug cartels and violence in these areas what kinds of threats what these migrants be facing if they're forced
5:24 am
to stay there. well you got it but it's a that's a very good point part of the problem that migrants have had as it crossed through mexico is that these cartels that they're not even drug cartels anymore just these criminals asians basically pinette migrants and they hold them as hostages as they negotiate ransoms with their family members in the united states and they kill them or they kidnap them and they force them to work within these remarks in a zation so the danger of crossing to mexico in was it's saw by them coming in as a big group it would end with a lot of international press and that rhetoric international red cross and in the human rights. in different human rights and n.g.o.s kind of being observers to make sure that they were and they were mistreated by local authorities and by you know kidnapped by these criminal organizations but when i look at the border the problem
5:25 am
is not only these but now five thousand migrants seventy what about could go up to nine thousand just in one city is that the city is the one and i would say most of the border cities already have a situation where they've had migrants not only from central america but mexican migrants trying to get into the united states haitians. migrants from other central american countries beyond a doubt as most of these most recent group are coming comes from and who does i mean basically they just get stuck in the border and what happened is that they try to cross illegally one by one or two or three in the middle of the night. death threats right now and this is why the u.s. has reacted the way it's reacted and it's kind of it was confirmed to me by the mayor of the that is that there was information that there could put a possibly be a group of these migrants trying to cross at one time you know basically kind of
5:26 am
grab hand and see how many can jump the jump jump the border. which is very different both if you go into these big cities so one of the argument that is coming up now is that these this decision by donald trump to put got soldiers on the border and to strengthen the border and to force the migrants to stay in mexico is that there may be more attempts to try to cross illegally into the united states which is also very very dangerous so it's you know you have a very good point in the sense that the cities already have they already have a problem a humanitarian problem that just there's not going to be enough food there's not to be enough resources are keeping them in these big dysplastic they're keeping in a baseball stadium but it's starting to get cold it's not freezing but it is very uncomfortable it does rain and there's not an up to then there's not going to be enough doctors to tend to them so that's what by these mayors are not going to be declaring a humanitarian crisis to see if the united nations and the federal government steps
5:27 am
in to support them they haven't received enough support from the federal government i mean at least in terms of beating them and giving them basic health care that they that they need specially for the children and pregnant women so it is a humanitarian crisis and you know what it probably is going to get worse that has anna maria salazar slack an emissary in mexico thanks so much for your time ana have a good day. the final of south american football's biggest club competition the limited door as has been pushed back by a day after one of the team buses was attacked river play in team fans threw projectiles at the rival buckley jr as it headed towards the stadium in point as there are several players were hurt they were then street battles between fans and police al-jazeera. outside the stadium. but was seen the last of some of the sixty six thousand river plate fans streaming out of the stadium which

5:34 am
xining when the verdict a severe setback to her leadership the democratic progressive party lost control of taiwan second and third largest cities she offered to resign as party chairwoman which analysts say will weaken her power within the d.p.p. so here i think in iraq i think first of all i need to take full responsibility for the resolute in today's elections effective now i resign as a chairwoman of the democratic progressive party our efforts were not enough disappointing all supporters who gave their all i also want to once again express our deepest regrets as with all elections in taiwan there was one overriding issue china. with or without the african demonic dependence we taiwanese decide our own future we are always taiwanese and unlike us they are chinese. unfollowing with a referendum to decide whether we go for independence or unification but i

5:36 am
a further reminded that democracy here remains one of the freest and most vibrant in asia adrian brown al-jazeera taipei. every woman and every girl has the right to a life free of violence those are the words of un secretary general antonio terrace as the world marks the international day for the elimination of violence against women the u.n. says a third of women worldwide have experienced physical or sexual violence at some point in their lives by sleep at the hands of a partner only fifty two percent of women married or in a relationship freely decide about sexual relations best control and health care seven hundred fifty million women around the world were married before the age of eighteen and more than two hundred fifty million have been subjected to female genital mutilation most of them fifteen or younger in sub-saharan africa and arab countries. let's speak to anacreon judge who was in suva fiji via skype she is the
5:37 am
regional director for asia in the pacific un women and and i want to ask you about some of these really alarming figures i see here that violence against women is a serious a cause of death and incapacity is cancer we've been seeing the me too movement develop is there enough awareness about this issue. thank you things with opportunity to be here indeed violence against women is one of the greatest violations of human rights affecting women's lives everywhere and unfortunately for too long women who experience violence has been blamed they have been silenced they have been stigmatized perpetrators largely have gone unpunished and this has kept the magnitude of the problem quiet but we do see that we've come to a tipping point now with the need to movement in other sister movements of around the globe which is beginning to change the situation and to transform isolation and
5:38 am
silence and you global solidarity and i think one of the beautiful things with a need to movement is that it's shown that no country no sector no we're going to say she is immune to this violence from corporate offices to factory floors from marketplaces to public buses from the entertainment industry to the world of sports it really happens everywhere and this is very important to begin to change the script and to increase awareness of course unfortunately there are still many women around the world whose stories are not being heard. and who still are afraid of speaking out because they're afraid of the implications for if they do and this is very much the theme this year for our sixteen days of activism points to world hear me too which aims to bring also those voices that are not being heard. so that we need to listen to all survivors to know where they are and to make their needs and
5:39 am
their voices the center of our responses and i want to ask you about this campaign so today is the international day to prevent violence against women that as we've had so much violence is actually from the intimate partners the campaigns like this really help change minds because what we're talking about partners here and we changing actions or are we just really changing a conversation. so what i think is very important in this campaign is that it draws the attention to the fact that everyone has a role to play in ending violence but of course the work itself doesn't happen just during sixteen days it needs to happen as you said every year every day and it has to be done by everybody by governments by community organizations by the u.n. system and by individual men and women and boys and girls in how we live our lives and this is why the work to end violence against women is very much at the heart of the women's work and mandates that we do with our partners because we do know what
5:40 am
works to end violence against women the campaigns can help draw attention to the issue but the real work on the ground is where the transformative change will happen and that has to do with implementing awesome policies having access to justice for victims and survivors we need to make sure that women who experience violence have access to essential services whether health legal psychosocial support and most importantly perhaps we have to prevent violence before it starts and this means working with individuals from you know to teach them about respectful relationships and to teach them about gender equality and this is how we will effect the change that is the that and i we've also seen some pretty alarming figures here around female genital mutilation and lots of people would argue that in certain places that's more of a cultural issue and not so much regarded as violence against women but tradition
5:41 am
how how would you address that as part of this campaign how do we try to change minds about cultural practices that could be damaging for young girls. so what we see around the world is that culture sometimes is used as an excuse to justify violence where there's you know that bias against women is never justified and this is why it's so important to work on changing attitudes and to work on changing the the harmful imbalances in power which which drive violence against women and that's why the work on prevention and working with faith based organizations working with the education system working with sports celebrities media to really transform those harmful stereotypes that culture justifies violence against women because of course we know that there is no excuse
5:42 am
and that women and girls everywhere no matter where they come from have the right to live their lives free of the fear of violence and i guarantee that force from the u.n. women talking to us from see if thanks so much for your time ana thank you for having me britain and spain have settled their differences for now over a rocky peninsula that threatened to sink sunday's breaks at summit it means the u.k. is divorced still is likely to be rather stand by e.u. member states china how has more from brussels. the british prime minister was all smiles in brussels on saturday night e.u. leaders are set to approve her briggs's deal at a special summit on sunday morning that after agreement was reached with spain effectively giving it a veto right over future negotiations involving the british territory of gibraltar a couple the unfair of it is the very i have informed the king about an agreement on gibraltar firstly i want to tell you that the european council take place to
5:43 am
