up ukraine's parliament approves the president's move to impose martial law after the standoff with russia. the end of the line for general motors models in the u.s. . of workers. out of this world excitement as a probe to study the deep interior of the red planet. some breaking news on u.s. saudi relations amid the call for action over the murder of. u.s. secretary of state mike on peo and secretary defense jim mattis will brief senators on wednesday on developments relating to saudi arabia democrat and republican
8:50 am
politicians have expressed concern over the killing of journalists last month that the saudi consulate in turkey is also growing condemnation on riyadh's involvement in the war in yemen which has created a humanitarian crisis well mike hanna joins us live now from washington d.c. mike so might bump a win jim mattis will do this joint briefing to the senate why is that happening and what are we expecting them to say. well there's a couple of unanswered questions here daryn importantly are they going to be briefing the whole senate or just the intelligence committee of the senate is the briefing going to be public zero is it going to be behind closed doors and very importantly too is the director of the cia going to be present because a number of senators say it's all very well to hear from the secretary of defense and the secretary of state but they really want to hear about the circumstances surrounding the murder of jamal khashoggi and the involvement of the crown prince of saudi arabia mohammed binns someone in that killing so there is still questions
8:51 am
coming from senators they welcome the fact that they will get this briefing but that's the other question too is the briefing going to be about the murder of jamal khashoggi or is indeed the briefing going to be about why sanctions should not be imposed on saudi arabia now we've heard from both jim matters and might bump in recent days saying the same thing as president trump they do not believe that relations with saudi arabia should be cut off at this particular stage they think that sanctions against saudi arabia who could be destructive to the united states the huge secretary of defense also arguing that if one is going to address the war in yemen a test to be done with saudi arabia once again he's arguing that relations must not be cut off that there should be no sanctions economic or otherwise imposed but senators have a very different opinion yet mike as you say u.s. lawmakers on both sides of the house continue to press for stronger action over the killing but much the president trump wants this story to go away it's just not
8:52 am
going to visit. no certainly not in fact it just keeps on going and members of the senate in particular are adamant that there are going to be measures taken against saudi arabia there are a number of different moves within the senate one has to do with economic sanctions on saudi arabia stopping u.s. involvement in its war in yemen that is one piece of legislation that's likely to be introduced in the senate in the coming week then as well we've heard from a republican senator lindsey graham that is should the accountability for the death be handed to the crown prince that he's going to seek legislation which would look at the why the behavior of the crown prince what the senator describes as his erratic decision to blockade to cut the involvement of saudi arabia and that war in yemen and of course the circumstances surrounding the death of jamal khashoggi so
8:53 am
lindsey graham going for a very wide bit of affairs concentrating on the crown prince of saudi arabia other legislation coming into the house are likely to go in the senate is the whole issue of saudi arabia's war in yemen so a number of different moves which will all come to a head in the next few days mike thank you. police investigating a shocking his killing have been searching two villages owned by saudi nationals one hundred kilometers from istanbul they're trying to find out what happened to the remains of a saudi journalist. the search centered on a large villa near the town of yellow over an hour's drive south of istanbul the forty strong team including police with sniffer dogs security forces and forensic investigators spent all monday at the villa which is said to be owned by a rich saudi businessman turkish media reported that he has links to crown prince mohammed bin sandman portraits of the saudi king and crown prince could be seen
8:54 am
hanging in the hallway turkish investigators were acting on phone records of calls made from the saudi consulate in istanbul before jamal khashoggi was murdered one is said to have been made to the villa by a saudi national he's been named as left tenant colonel mansoor author man abu hussein was a member of the so-called hit squad which carried out the killing it's thought that colonel abu hussein is in the saudi civil defense force and to serve the crown prince the turkish prosecutor has issued a statement saying the call was made a day before the killing and it was to discuss either how to hide or destroy this because saudis body. the search included the surrounding area and a neighboring villa which is also owned by a saudi national neither of the owners was present fire services drained two wells before the forensic team took away samples. the two main theories about what happened to mr saudis body either it was dismembered and dissolved in acid in the
8:55 am
consulate or his remains were taken away in black suitcases purchased by saudi officials on the morning of the murder they were then either disposed of in turkey or flown to saudi arabia under diplomatic privilege only the killers know the answer and they are in saudi arabia if this search fails to produce any significant evidence about the whereabouts of mystical. saudi's body it's difficult to see where this investigation goes from here without meaningful saudi cooperation which for some reason it still refusing to give. us in the queue much saudi authorities are investigating with the perpetrators of the crime they must hundred more over to us so that we can investigate them ourselves and know who the local collaborators or collaborators are and who gave the orders to carry out the crime since all these questions are still unanswered calls from around the world and international organizations and getting louder to open an international investigation into this crime that saudi arabia mohamed bin salman though i'm
8:56 am
moving on doing business and seeing friends the crown prince the man thought by turkish and u.s. security services to be in the want to order the killing is in egypt it's his first foreign trip since the murder of jamal khashoggi and the question being asked is if he wasn't the architect of this killing then why is he not finding out who was tony berkeley al-jazeera yell over turkey. ukraine's parliament has approved imposing thirty days of martial law in response to russia opening fire on its navy international response to russia's actions in the current strait have been swift and strong from kiev under simmons as the latest. at every level the outrage over russia's actions in capturing three boats and more disturbingly for ukraine twenty three sailors some of whom were injured isn't coming down quite the reverse ukraine's parliament debated martial law for several hours it was approved by a large majority president petro poroshenko says it will start from wednesday not
8:57 am
a declaration of war he says more remains of bolstering defenses against aggression from russia but the martial law would be national applying only to coastal areas and regions bordering russia it will last thirty days my more. we have to reinforce our defense immediately so we can quickly react and mobilize all resources in case of an invasion. poroshenko has managed to placate opponents who believes that martial law was going to give him a big advantage by limiting political activity in the run up to the presidential elections at the end of march next year right now his popularity is low although there's a long list of world leaders who are giving his support over this crisis. nato is demanding the immediate release of the ukrainian prisoners held by russia with this
8:58 am
warning so there shall harston the stance that its actions have consequences and that's the reason why nato has reacted so firmly against the actions of russia against ukraine over several years and did the un more condemnation of russia we strongly support ukraine sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders extending to its territorial waters we express our deep concern over the incident which represent a dangerous escalation and violation of international law russia may have rammed one ukrainian boat opening fire on a total of three vessels injuring sailors detaining all crew and yet it continues to accuse ukraine's president is standing for reelection next year of deliberate provocation resume ears of this banditry must be curbed and the international
