the government to step down sudan's parliament passed its twenty nine hundred first budget. was the most important thing about a budget is addressing the hard currency issue an increasing exports by thirty percent while reducing imports by increasing lack of production the budget also focuses on creasing oil production reducing imports of oil. the new budget promises to reduce the country's inflation from its current rate of seventy percent to twenty seven it's also aims to increase economic growth by five point one percent and raise spending by nearly three point four billion dollars while cutting budget deficit to three point three percent from the current three point seven aims that some economists think will be difficult to achieve and. there's a huge deficit in the budget about one billion dollars there is also a deficit between exports and imports and an increase in inflation these are challenges facing the government so anything that doesn't address those issues affect the implementation of the budget. the newly passed spending bill also leaves
important questions unanswered. the new budget will maintain subsidies on wheat and feel but doesn't explain where the government will get the hard currency needed to pay for the subsidies because a shortage has left long queues at petrol stations and lack of right in some bakeries which has triggered nationwide protests a process that began in the city of hadera over bread shortages and rising inflation quickly spread to other parts of the country the government responded with tear gas and live ammunition more than sixty percent of sudan's revenue was lost when thoughts dentist heated in twenty eleven taking a third of the country's oil reserves with it despite government attempts to find new sources of revenue and sudan suffered now some sudanese think they have lost faith in the government's ability to fix the economy here. i have little faith in the government but there's no other option if we get another dog. it might be even worse than the one we currently have. our only problem is the high prices we've
said it before that the government has taken all our money but we don't know what the future holds if we bring in people who have experience and they destroy the economy even more so dense economy has been fragile for the past seventy years but politicians here hope that their twenty one thousand budget will lead to greater stability both economically as well as politically him a war going to zero. now the color line and goals women's basketball team made history in october edging closer to winning the world cup with a new n.b.a. women's training facility in the country the sport is gaining popularity especially amongst young girls reports now from the city of chess. fifteen year old i mean a song is unwilling to accept the kind of life many teenage girls are facing the third child of four brothers and sisters she's expected to cook clean and iron for the family chores her brothers don't have to do. and look i need help and i'm

but first al-jazeera has obtained video showing saudi agents taking what suspected to be the remains of jamal khashoggi to the house of the saudi consul general in this stamboul the washington post column this was killed soon after entering the saudi consulate on the table the second pull chatterjee and ripple. it's been three months since the murder of jeep and his body still hasn't been found but this video could throw more light on the sequence of events after he was killed. the pictures appear to show members of the saudi hit team carrying bags thought to contain his remains into the saudi consul general residence you can't believe these things happen in embassies or consul generals things but but of course they are control of all they are that controllable in that they are saudi property saudi
land the local police can't really do very much about it and of course they wouldn't imagine for one minute the ex were actually listening to what was going on inside the saudi journalist entered the consulate hoping to pick up documents that would allow him to start a new life with his fiance he never came out alive saudi arabia blamed his death on rogue agents but turkey's president says it was a premeditated murder orchestrated by riad these pictures only add another layer of complexity to the investigation now we have direct evidence showing members of the killing team unloading body bags or black bags of some sort so it leaves the impression. body ended up at the consular. residence and that's where the investigation should focus not what happened today
a few weeks after hushovd disappearance a team of turkish investigators found traces of acid during a search of the saudi consuls residence the office of turkey's attorney general has told al jazeera that chemicals were used to dispose of casualties body and now a new book is revealing more details of the killing. diplomatic atrocity the dark secrets of the murder was written by three reporters from turkey's daily newspaper it names two previously unidentified members of the saudi hit squad as well as their links to the royal family also audio recordings which allegedly prove that the crime was premeditated and information on his show g.'s reported refusal to text message his son in riyadh and tell him not to worry if he didn't hear from him for a while as a fuller picture of the killing emerges the pressure continues to grow on saudi
arabia last week the king reshuffled his cabinet hoping to deflect international criticism but the saudi side would hope that this recent cabinet reshuffle puts an end to this case and relieve saudi arabia from this pressure by the turks and the international community looking for some answers the new details are also likely to add to growing calls that saudi arabia names and indicts those behind jamal killing paul chatterjee on al-jazeera right we can go live now to our correspondents in him cuz he and his in stamboul and cinema how do these images these pictures help us understand better exactly what happened to jamal khashoggi and who was responsible for it. well martin since the beginning of this case this incident actually there were lots of footage is released by the
turkish turkish media international media but of course we were able to follow up what happened beginning from those hits men entering inside turkey until they left turkey with their private jets and regular saudi airlines flights but of course there were some disconnections for instance we needed that and according to the stumble prosecutor's office statement we knew that these hits men left the saudi consulate with the issue with the calls that we've seen in the in the footage right now with some luggage carrying out but we didn't know what happened afterwards because as you see in the picture the message is so when parks in front of the consulate residence and then makes a menu were and gets inside the garden of the call of the residence because they want to they want to carry out unload those languages and bags and more discreetly
according to the health officials that we have spoken and according to the journalists who have been focusing on this and writing who have written and who has written a book actually there is no picture showing that these languages with that which are on the with it in the residence building were taken out of the residence afterwards just let's remember together turkish prosecutor's office two searches in the consulate building and did one another search at the consulate residence and the cell is really cause a lot of problems for the turkish police and for the turkish investigators they didn't let them do the search percs waited for a long time and during that search turkey turkish investigators found out a well inside the residence building and they wanted to do a search over there they were banned by the saudis saying that they do. and have a permission for that so they took some water samples but the turkish people the turkish investigators were not able to do
a proper search with through the fire brigades because that the well over there is a valid more than twenty meters deep so now that there is a question what happened to demolish it just but is saudi said that they they have given the remains to a local call of greater but never named the local call the greater but now it turns out that the saudi agents have carried the body remains to the to the consulate residence and the remains can still be of their experts come up with this idea also because the prosecutor's office have claimed before they have concluded that jamal just by the was drained before being dismembered by a top bake inside inside the consulate building in a stumble so it is when you speak to the experts also other experts that i have spoken before told me that since the body was drained the blood was taken out already if it was packed properly they could have they could have preserved the
body parts that's why the turkish investigators maybe weren't able to find and also i was told by very credible turkish sources that they always doubted that the by the remains could still be inside the residence especially in the well in the well inside the residence now it is time for the turkish persecutors maybe asking for a new search warrant inside the consulate residence marty all right jim thank you for us in him cause we're live in assemble. now people in the yemeni port city of her days are say shelling is ongoing despite a un backed trees who the fighters had agreed to hand over control of the data to a local coast guard and they would be overseen by the un as part of a recent deal agreed in sweden where the un has code confirmed that the who things have indeed pulled back but the yemeni government is accusing the rebels of backtracking on the agreement saying territory has been handed over to who the
affiliates are who the rebels say violations by the saudi admiralty coalition are putting the who data agreement in jeopardy. we are adamant to continue to comply with what we have signed with the aim of a stablished long and just peace those who are attempting to cause a feel your to the agreement are willing for the war to continue and the plight of the yemeni people to continue. the ceasefire is a test in order to realize and separate those who are willing to lend a helping hand and those who are willing to collaborate with foreign enemies their bangladesh's prime minister sheikh hasina as wonderful for term in office now according to local media the ruling alliance at least two hundred eighty seven out of the three hundred seats were voting actually took place the opposition has rejected the results claiming widespread vote rigging. and these are the latest
pictures then to come in from the bangladeshi capital dhaka. addressing a group of dignitaries it appears to be. obviously congratulating her on what is a an extraordinary win obviously much contested by opposition the opposition coalition but winning two hundred eighty eight out of three hundred seats many would say is fantastical even incredible but these are pictures coming out of dhaka was shaken scene there as you see there being congratulated we have this report now from our correspondent charles trafford. voters cast their ballots alterna lection campaign described by the band with a show position as one of the most violent in this country's forty seven year history. we have a lot of hope in this election because we couldn't vote in the last one but this time we came to vote let's see what happens now the government deployed hundreds of
thousands of security forces across the country an effort it said that was to guarantee a peaceful vote weeks of violence and what the opposition described as intimidation by the ruling party in the build up to this election certainly the situation at this polling station has been calm but that's not to say there haven't been allegations of voter fraud members of an opposition polling station monitoring team say they had their i.d.'s and election papers confiscated they said they were threatened and ordered to leave. all parties were supposed to have election monitors at polling stations to watch the voting process and the vote count election commission members confirm to us they had also seen opposition members to the way. we fourteen members of the opposition b.n.p. entered the polling station we gave our papers to the presiding officer and.
