and criminal. the deadline passes for donald trump to tell congress whether. the arabia over the killing of. wild turkey plans to push for a formal u.n. investigation of the murder. you're watching al-jazeera life from a headquarters and. also ahead the venezuelan president nicolas maduro warns of dire consequences if the u.s. blocks its oil shipments. singing
about their home the refugees and internally displaced who are the focus of an african. fellow donald trump's not taking any action against saudi arabia for the murder of john. but one of his inner circle suggests there will be consequences the deadline has now passed for the u.s. president to tell congress whether he'll impose sanctions on the kingdom under legislation called the magnitsky act trump one hundred twenty days to outline any action he's previously said he doesn't want. to jeopardize u.s. relations with saudi arabia but the u.s. secretary of state has written to a senior member of the committee afford affairs saying the trump administration will seek accountability for murder in that letter says this we will continue to
use the relevant authorities as appropriate to promote accountability for the murder of mr. and then post tangible and significant consequences on those responsible i can now has more from washington d.c. . president trump departs for his annual medical exam declining to on such shouted questions on any subject all indications are will be no response to the deadline set by the senate following the murder of jamal khashoggi the senate sent a letter to president trump invoking the global magnitsky act which gave president trump one hundred twenty days to investigate the murder and impose sanctions against those responsible in a follow up letter to the senate asa president to specifically investigate any role the crown prince mohammed bin solomon or m.p.'s may have played in the murder in b.s. the crown prince is a wrecking ball. and he gets complicit in the murder mystery because shogi i think
is crazy to think he is dangerous and he has put their relationship at risk but president trump has steadfastly insisted the us solve the relationship is more important than establishing accountability for murder it's all about america first we're not going to give up hundreds of billions of dollars in orders and let russia china and everybody else have a it's all about for me very simple it's america first saudi arabia's senior diplomat continues to deny any involvement by the kingdom's leaders in the murder refusing to react to a new york times report that the crown prince is on record as saying he would use a bullet on jamal khashoggi. report dismissed as based on unknown sources and the following tweet posted on the saudi foreign ministry account we will hold who are responsible for the death the push to account the question is what happens now the president has ignored the ultimatum the answer is simply nothing they are no
punitive measures involved in this process which essentially relies on the good faith of all parties something the president's critics contend is absent in the white house but the stairs not mean an end to the matter the question of accountability for jamal khashoggi is murder has rid bipartisan support in congress and the motion is agreed to and legislation seeking sanctions against saudi arabia and possibly the crown prince specifically is being widely discussed in both house and senate mike hanna al-jazeera washington well turkey says it along with several other countries will seek a u.n. investigation into a class of his murder stephanie decker is joining us from istanbul how is turkey going about this. but it said it before a jury we know turkey wants this independent investigation what it's trying to do
is avoid a direct confrontation versus riyadh let's say you heard the foreign minister there talking to reporters last night saying that they wanted other countries on board we know they've been speaking to the canadians behind the scenes of but that's pretty much all that we know so far an international investigation needs to be cold and sanctioned by the united nations security council now we know how politically loaded this story is we know that u.s. president donald trump you heard it there might have his report is pushing back because he says that the that the deals on the table particularly the multibillion dollar deals to go either way. will remain in place so many people will tell you that if it does ever get to the u.n. security council vetoes will be used i think for now we're going to have to wait and see what i missed the un special rapporteur for extradition killings will put in her report that she's going to bring to the un human rights council in june turkey has said that it will probably wait for that and then see how it moves
forward but i think certainly if we look at this from a border picture all the country's interests the political alliances the multibillion dollar deals on the table i think it will be very difficult to get consensus on this international investigation which will be looking at hard questions who ordered the killing who was involved how much should turkey know also they they bugged the embassy during the questions also about that it is very very complicated indeed all right. thank you. duros warning of catastrophic consequences if all of venezuela's oil shipments are blocked by u.s. sanctions so a senior white house official says the trumpet ministration is considering new sanctions on top of measures last week which targeted ten billion dollars worth of oil assets and revenue about as well as opposition leader who hasn't ruled out authorizing u.s. intervention to force president madura from power but maduro's close ally that's

a strategy not just to help the needy but to undermine embattled president nicolas maduro. the u.s. ambassador made an appeal in spanish to venezuela's military to defy order not to let it pass. you will have to make a decision that will always be remembered by your parents your brother and sisters and your daughters they'll all remember your decision. just across the border the military is so far following orders i'm. less than a hundred meters from the entrance to. a bridge which separates venezuela from colombia and from the humanitarian aid that's been collected on the other side of that bridge and for the first time and since dawn members of the national guard have been deployed and have declared this area as national security zone. a handful of demonstrators wave flags and taunted the soldiers. but in the nearby city of
sunken storm a far larger group has been demonstrating for days demanding that humanitarian aid to be allowed in i mean americans they took away my health benefits and i can't afford to go to colombia to buy the drugs for my cancer treatment my daughter is a diabetic and needs insulin injections daily and we can't get that aid. despite the stories president appears determined to keep the foreign aid out describing the offer as a thinly disguised act of foreign intervention. not going as well it will not allow the show of force humanitarian aid because we're not simply is that. on the other side self declared interim president seems hopeful that he can provide what my little cannot while at the same time tempting the military to change sides and if they don't there's a plan b. if we don't i'm convinced that we will get the idea through with the bin as well people people and more people carrying the humanitarian aid people people and

killing forty three people as dozens of cars plunged into the riverbed below it had widespread impact on the city and its surrounding areas and led to debate about what caused it. and businesses suffered when the neighborhoods were all of a sudden cutoff. after the bridge collapse we lost fifty percent of our business here it's been really bad. and those who live near the bridge are struggling to cope some are still in temporary accommodation. we suddenly found ourselves like victims of an earthquake but our houses are still there they're still standing it's a very strange situation for us as the memory of the bridge collapse continues to overshadow genoa there is hope that the building of a new bridge can able the city to move on from the disaster and also rejuvenate the immediate area. construction on the new bridge begins next month and is expected to
last for fifteen months costing more than two hundred twenty five million dollars renowned architect renzo piano himself a native of the city designed it for free. and with the bridge a vision to restore the surrounding neighborhoods as well as honor the memory of those who died. from tragedy you can create opportunity our workshop looks at how the new project goes hand in hand with renovating the neighborhood for the people of genoa the dismantling of what's left of the miranda bridge brings closure and hope that they won't see a repeat of what happened last august sony vaio al-jazeera jennifer. in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine at the time of the islamic revolution there were approximately thirty seven million people living in iran now that number is more than eighty million so most iranians living today have never known anything but the post revolution islamic republic some of the younger ones say their government is letting them down. more from.
corners of to han young men and women play the blues stealing moments of freedom in private studios might be the closest they get to the big stange. even to damage your gigs in small cafes he says her band gets two songs in before security shows up to shut them down. for a female vocalist intervention it's not just that a woman singing in public is illegal society doesn't recognize my entire life i wanted to send for me it's like breathing i can't do anything else but there's no professional recognition as an artist. everyone in this room was born after the one nine hundred seventy nine revolution the islamic republic is the only they've ever known but many young people like them say they longed for a more liberal time before revolution in iran they've never seen. the clerical
system of government that's been in place for forty years also has its unflinching supporters. ronnie was born in one thousand nine hundred nine the first generation of iranians born under the flag of a new republic in many ways she is its poster child a devout muslim from humble beginnings highly educated and her father died fighting in the iraq war. in any country some are in favor of the establishment and some argue it's the same in iraq but must accept that we are a country with a rich culture rooted in the purity of islam and we should consider ourselves an islamic country we may not allow some freedoms that are allowed in other countries . the most important concern she says should be to employ people and keep them from leaving the country but for young people who don't necessarily want to live by established norms or subscribe to the way things are done if you're cut from a different cloth then it can be a challenge to find
a place in iranian society. some leaders are sympathetic and acknowledge the need for dialogue to address the concerns of an entire generation but people say they don't openly express themselves for fear of government retaliation. we hear the time before the revolution was economically better but i can't talk about this transparently in fact i don't dare to yes i can say a lot but i don't dare to i prefer to say nothing to keep my head on my neck. from the perspective of security the revolution is very good but from the perspective of a commie it's bad we have the burn generation for us it hasn't been good. economic conditions make living in iran challenging for anyone but for iranian artists our husseini says doing so is even more difficult if you're living here. don't be sad because being sad is the least thing you can do try your heart to be strong and bring peace and happiness try to make things that they are not they don't exist.
modern jazz may not fit the public image of the islamic republic but the sound of music from small corners of the capital is a reminder that iranians come from all walks of life in all shapes and sizes. much more coverage on the iranian revolution on our website al-jazeera dot com. hello again the headlines on al-jazeera the deadline for u.s. president to decide whether he'll impose sanctions on saudi arabia over the murder of a has expired under the magnitsky act the president outlined what action if any he intends to take. venezuela's president is warning of catastrophic consequences if all of us oil shipments are blocked by u.s. sanctions nicolas maduro is refusing to allow humanitarian aid from the u.s.
