cricket world isn't much i mean you have to think why would he give me the guess then he didn't bring comedian it's a big fan base. al-jazeera is investigative unit reveals explosive new edit documentary confirms to my analysis very hard profile figure in match fixing and international cricket see in this al-jazeera investigation cricket's match fixing the files. the saudi king orders his country's public prosecutor to open an investigation into the disappearance of jamal khashoggi.
7:49 pm
oh i didn't forget this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up uncertainty surrounds a deal that was supposed to see a key group with draw from syria's last rebel held province. with a crucial summit only weeks away intense talks in brussels do little to break ranks at deadlock. ah big gains for the green party in germany's regional election but could it weaken chancellor merkel's coalition. joint turkish saudi team is expected to enter the saudi arabian consulate in istanbul in a few hours they're investigating the disappearance of the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi he's not been seen since entering the building nearly two weeks ago took his cell phone. it is believed he was killed inside the consulate meanwhile king solomon has ordered the saudi public prosecutor to open an internal investigation
7:50 pm
into the disappearance and other developments king solomon and turkey's president put a one spoke by phone on sunday evening as iran has learned that the head of saudi intelligence has arrived in turkey and is to meet turkish officials in a suite on sunday the saudi embassy in washington thanked the u.s. for not jumping to conclusions basi it also warned of retaliation against any sanctions u.s. president donald trump has warned of severe punishment if the kingdom is found to be behind the show g.'s disappearance the u.k. france and germany are jointly calling for a credible investigation into fate and ford and j.p. morgan are the latest companies to pull out of a major investor conference in the saudi kingdom let's go live now to istanbul once who is charles stratford is outside the saudi consulate there so charles what more do we know about this investigative team gaining access which we're expecting to
7:51 pm
happen sometime later today. but right sometime later today i mean let's let's. let's make the point that the culture of this self has been open for business over the last few days today is no exception it doesn't close until three o'clock local time which is an analysis from now it seems fairly conceivable that that team will be allowed in during business hours we are very unsure we don't have solid information as to exactly what this team or the amount of people that are going to be in this team and the level of forensic investigating for example that they have agreed upon and the saudis are going to allow them to do we spoke to a government source earlier who said that the reason why this is taking so long to get agreement full access into the consulate was precisely because of this. cause there was no agreement on the thaw and this all for the investigation that
7:52 pm
seemingly needs to be done we also don't know yet called confirm whether this investigation is going to stretch to looking inside the console residence or indeed those vehicles that were registered to the consulate good caused so much interest that were pictures of them that were leaked by government sources to a pro-government press it but certainly it seems that it's off to almost two weeks since mr her show she disappeared inside the consulate that this this joint investigation is going to start and it seems yes imminent we are expecting them in the next couple of hours and what's the significance of king solomon instructing the country's public prosecutor to launch an internal investigation into the disappearance of jamal khashoggi. i think the significance of this is that there is a long way is
7:53 pm
a big distance between the the king announcing some sort of internal investigation of saudi internal investigation into the disappearance of course of shoji and only you know yesterday is maintaining these lines that these allegations were baseless lies and it's also interesting that certainly according to the reuters news agency this decision by the saudi king was based on information from the joint investigation committee themselves and as we've been reporting over the last few days there have been government sources that have been leaking information to the press here that suggests that certainly they say that they have a very strong evidence that because she was murdered inside that building so certainly this has come as a big surprise this sudden announcement from the saudi king that. he wants the public prosecutor to do an internal investigation. of the week that he did as i say
7:54 pm
it is or it is it was quite a long way away from these lines basically refuting any kind of allegation whatsoever and calling the place this lies so certainly it seems as if possibly this investigation team has given the saudis evidence that we cannot ignore. how does this chance transferred live in istanbul chance many thanks. share prices in riyadh have recovered some of the ground that they lost on sunday when saudi arabia's main stock index fell by seven percent it's been trending downward for more than a week now raising questions about whether the situation is having an impact on the broader saudi economy mike hanna reports from washington. the saudi stock market suffered its biggest fall in years following president trump's warning it recovered slightly during the day but it was the purse tangible sign of the impact of this crisis on the saudi economy. and impact too on the once cozy relationship between
7:55 pm
the trumpet ministration and saudi leaders a statement released by the saudi news agency threatening global retaliation against any sanction came just hours after president trump spoke of severe punishment that saudi arabia proved complicit in jabalpur show his disappearance. no dodge among members of congress that this should involve economic sanction despite president trump stated reluctance for such measures so i would just say this to you or for confidence if this is proven to be true there is going to be a response from congress it's going to be nearly unanimous it's going to be swift and it's going to go pretty far and that could include arms sales but it could include a bunch of other things as well european leaders to making clear they will not stand by they must have seen the huge international concern from the united states now from britain france and germany what they need to do is to cooperate fully with the investigation that the turks are asking us to do and to get over all this and
7:56 pm
if as they say this this terrible murder didn't happen then where is jamal khashoggi and that's what the world wants to know you're a former cia director costing down to the vehemence of saudi denials of him told them and their denials ring hollow very much for a hollow to go after a permanent resident states who writes for the washington post and doing it on foreign soil at a diplomatic mission to me would be inconceivable that such an operation would be run by the saudis without the knowledge of the day to day decision maker of saudi arabia that's crown prince mom been said. in an apparent bid to diffuse the tension the saudi foreign ministry has released. a tweet thanking the u.s. and others for rip braining from jumping to conclusions despite this early ship that was once so warm is along with the saudi stock market reaching
7:57 pm
a new low i can hear a washington so who is the man at the center of all this. when the saudi journalist was once close to the inner circles of the saudi royal family he and his reputation as a reformist by pushing boundaries and questioning government policies in two thousand and three khashoggi became media advisor the prince turki been faisal the prince headed saudi arabia's intelligence service and later design bassett's of the united states but last year went to the self-imposed exile in the united states after becoming concerned about the actions of crown prince mohammed bin solomon he told al jazeera in march that he left the kingdom because he didn't want to be arrested the largest armed group in syria's rebel held province says yet to withdraw its fighters from the region despite a deadline set by turkey and russia by a tough area h.t.s. has not previously said whether it accepts or rejects the terms of assad she
7:58 pm
agreements signed last month the deal set a deadline of monday for rebel groups to withdraw all fighters from inside it live in the country's northwest will leave live agreement set up a demilitarized area around the northwestern region surrounding it live province the zone was meant to be cleared of heavy weapons by october tenth of rebel fighters by today monday al-jazeera sent a halt to reports now from beirut. still no movement on the ground still no evidence that the fighters of the so-called radical groups are withdrawing in line with the such a deal the russian and turkey agreement to create a demilitarized zone around the no word yet from turkey as well the country which is overseeing the implementation of the deal but we did hear from. them this is the main military alliance it is considered a terrorist organization by the international community it controls seventy percent of the whole province and it controls a large chunk of this demilitarized zone for the first time they released this
7:59 pm
statement late yesterday referring to the sochi deal they didn't explicitly say that they support this deal but they saying the signaled readiness to comply so a tacit acceptance of the deal in one of their one of their statements they actually say that we support and appreciate efforts done inside and outside of course that's a reference to turkey to protect liberated areas to prevent an invasion and to prevent massacres we know that this sochi deal is to prevent the possibility of a syrian government offensive to create this new front line so high a really a very pragmatic group that has been pragmatic for years it rebranded itself after it said it was publicly cut ties with al qaida hoping that the international community would no longer see it as a terrorist organization so they did quietly comply with the first deadline which was october tenth and they did remove their happy weapons from this and we have to remember that this demilitarized zone does not solve the whole of the fate of the
8:00 pm
province as a whole it creates a new front line it tells the rebels and these so-called radical groups to move further back and the two you know would rather heavy weapons further back and it achieves two objectives that the russians and the syrian government wanted and that is to protect their strongholds to protect the russian base in a year and to open international highways to commercial traffic. you hopes for a breakthrough in stalled brigs it talks have been dashed e.u. and u.k. negotiators have once again been unable to come to an agreement over the future of the border on the island of ireland suddenly called meeting of all twenty seven e.u. and bastardize in brussels on sunday have led to optimism about a deal being reached foreign minister says the lack of progress is disappointing and the time is getting short to agree a briggs deal well the key issue in the talks is what happens to the border between the republic of ireland and northern ireland both a part of the european union.
