democratically elected president ousted and held incommunicado since two thousand and thirteen events shrouded in secrecy so power change hands as the military seize control from its commander in chief for the first time al-jazeera reveals exclusively what happened behind closed doors directly from those who witnessed it first hand morsi the final hours. on al-jazeera. saudi arabia. for the murder of journalist jamal khashoggi have been brought to justice but turkey challenges the kingdom to name.
a lie from doha also coming up a day before planned to protest and prime minister promises a government of technocrats open to all. al-jazeera obtained exclusive pictures from the high level meeting between the taliban and the u.s. the taliban's co-founder says he's hopeful the talks will help resolve the conflict . a former british soldier faces murder charges more than four decades after the bloody sunday killings in northern iraq and. saudi arabia says those responsible for the murder of the journalist jamal khashoggi have been brought to justice the head of its human rights commission made the same and in geneva without giving any further details now turkey is insisting the kingdom names those who've been prosecuted jamal khashoggi was killed inside the saudi culture that. in istanbul in october last year and his body dismembered
investigations by the u.n. and turkey have pointed the finger at high ranking saudi officials saudi arabia has rejected what it calls attempts to internationalize the investigation let's go live now to geneva and our correspondent who's been following developments there needs barca saudi arabia then really on the defensive it would appear given that israel had so much criticism particularly since october of last year. yes an awful lot of criticism an awful lot of pressure now to try and fill in some of the gaps obviously we've heard from turkey asking for saudi to explain who these alleged perpetrators are but they're also under pressure from n.g.o.s as well to explain exactly what kind of legislative process was actually apparently taken place in saudi the chair of saudi she rights commission only spoke for about twenty
minutes but he explained in detail that a number of perpetrators have been quote brought to justice he said that there had been at least three hearings that these perpetrators have access to lawyers that they were observers including possibly at least one n.-g. o. we haven't had any confirmation from any international n.g.o.s that that indeed was the case but of course there are many many gaps in the story as well however the saudis are saying that they don't want any international scrutiny they don't want this to turn into some great international event they want to make sure that they are able to do it the way that they want to do it and that means following whatever legal processes they want to follow but n.g.o.s will not be happy and members of course of the human rights council will not be happy until key important details are given particularly who these perpetrators are and what sort of power what sort
of leverage does this u.n. committee on human rights actually have i mean can it compel the saudis to to produce evidence or answer questions that it once dealt with does it over is it really just a talking shop without any power whatsoever. it doesn't have any real legal way to force saudis to comply bucks last week at the start of the hearing thirty six different members of the human rights council came together and tabled one joint statement this is never happened before and the entire history of the human rights council so under that kind of pressure for saudi to explain exactly where it is violating human rights it's very difficult to see how saudi community of course is still completely alone there are several members of the human rights council that are diplomatically close to saudi and we heard some of them speak up to the saudi statements they had about one and a half minutes to speak some of course some critical others were some praise saudis
advances when it comes to improving levels of human rights but undoubtedly there is a changing mood amongst many members of the human rights council that for far too long perhaps to use be able to obfuscate to avoid answering difficult questions head on but there is now really growing international pressure to hold saudi to account for some of its human rights abuses particularly when it comes to the arrest of activists we know that ten female activists on trial at the moment in saudi there are huge questions about what's going to happen to them a real call across the board from all n.g.o.s to make sure that these women some who have come paying heavily for women to be allowed to drive which they now can do real cool some n.g.o.s for them to be immediately released all right live for us in geneva thanking. well jerry is the prime minister's been addressing the public for the first time since he took office noureddine bed always says he's forming a government of technocrats that is open to all protests as a as

give this huge important task of change in democratic transition to the same people who have put us in a situation in the situation that we find ourselves in today on monday president abdelaziz bouteflika announced he would not seek a fifth term in power he canceled next month's election but didn't set a new date the government says it's ready for dialogue with the opposition but analysts say protesters want much more the government trying to accelerate the pace of negotiation but they are doing so not by taking into account what is currently emerging from sitting right here and how people writing them out there we. are trying to include. opposition party is. critical life long tradition was protest organizers are expecting record numbers to turn out on friday they
