i cannot be seen with you in riyadh while the investigation is going on in turkey and i think all others banks corporation and so on so forth will eventually follow because if you are a minutia or you are a liam fox in the u.k. you don't want to be seen in riyadh when the investigation result is being voiced out of hunger or istanbul and you are sitting with those who are accused of murder i mean one of the links that has been made is clearly between this whole episode and the crown prince mohammed bin son and people like lindsey graham in the states that are said he is he is the problem and we shouldn't be dealing with him at what point does that kind of does that link get made do you think by the white house or i mean has it already been made look i think there are two things that we have to distinguish between and there this is very important one is american so did relations the second is american relations with saudi arabia through mohammed bin solomon you see america likes reliable allies trump likes reliable

recognizable it's inhumane it is there in our eyes the killing of a journalist who only wanted to write freely. well let's remind ourselves who the man is central mr malcolm chaudry astonishing list was once close to the in the circles of the saudi royal family and his reputation as a reformist by pushing boundaries and questioning government policies in two thousand and three became media advisor to prince turki been fired so the prince headed saudi arabia's intelligence service and later served as ambassador to the u.s. but last year he went into self-imposed exile in the u.s. after becoming concerned about the actions of crown prince mohammed bin sound man he told our jazeera in march that he left the kingdom because he didn't want to be arrested just for amnesty international is calling for an urgent united nations investigation into jamal khashoggi its disappearance the reason that

time he has survived many suicide bombing attacks and his father was killed in an attack by the taliban who is known for his staunch anti taliban stand saying that there is absolutely no way that can play in a future role in afghanistan and the attack also highlights of the challenges that the americans the afghan government and they too will face in the near future also comes against the backdrop of the upcoming elections many people how to hope that those if the saturday elections because pave the way for more stability and you parliament there could tackle the problems the afghan government faces particularly inefficient governance corruption and the need to find job opportunities for millions of people i think after this people would have questions about whether it's safe or not to go and cast their votes on saturday. afghanistan's shia

solicit yes there are families not voting because they lost loved ones but on the other side some people are moving and has suggested candidates to represent them but for people like him the damage is done and i cannot cry at the homes to the top rooftop like person woman they come back. the silence echoes from her now empty room to what's become where he was library. in the last six weeks and the top floor of the mosque a four thousand books from fellow shia they say where the government has failed them education will succeed when i came here i feel right i was in here when she wasn't here but i feel she's here politically they will be silent but where he lives presence is deafening i wish she would be here.
shelob ellis. iraqi government has begun closing camps which have been home to thousands of people displaced by years of war but aid workers say it's too soon and civilians are being forcibly returned to unsafe areas in the predominantly sunni and our province my daughter reports from baghdad this is the calm point tonally displaced people in iraq's anbar province of the height of the military operations against i still in two thousand and fifteen it was home to seven thousand people. government officials have come to see it closed. to the nominee of the army or home the last hundred fifty or so families that remained here finally returned home we've closed it as part of a government program to resettle all i.d.p. camps. it's a program criticized by aid workers who say it's happening too quickly and it's still too dangerous. more than three million people have returned to their homes by
the middle of the sea but more than two and a half million others are still displaced according to the international organization for migration. mohammed jassim was one of those brave enough to go back home but his family house was destroyed in the war so mohammed is living in a tent some of his relatives are here to help him. out of our situation is desperate there's nothing to salvage from our home it's not a home anymore actually we urge the government to pay us the compensation it promised. others complained they have to live with the threats from booby traps unexploded bombs and other devices on the health risk posed by the decomposed bodies that lie on the land where their houses once stude the only way i want to go about it was for a whole day earthmoving machines have been excavating the rubble in my compound and recover dozens of bodies there were at least five to six bodies in each of several shallow holes we found here. the diverse station poverty and lack of services in
areas that are captured from my soul forced many to choose to stay in the comps for others it is in the comically buyable to leave some have been able to set up shop of fruit stands a makeshift markets making about fifty dollars a month on able to put up with the law called basic services when they have returned home many have been forced to go back to comes. open for them the fall and desperate for sanctuary continues mohammed at all just the era of the u.s. president has threatened to deploy the military and close the country's southern border if mexico can't stop a large migrant caravan from attention to enter the u.s. several thousand migrants including hundreds of children set off from one jurors last week and of traveling on foot through central america they have arrived in guatemala city where david messer reports. some people here are calling it an
exodus more than a thousand migrants fleeing hundred on foot arrived at a migrant sheltering guatemala city on wednesday a group of migrants set off from honduras last week and the caravan has since grown rapidly people hope that traveling is a group who help protect them from robberies assaults and kidnappings on route to mexico in the united states many say they've been forced to make let's get get out more than anybody but we don't want to go and invade their country but hunger and the needs of our children oblige us to do this we don't want to abandon our nation i didn't want to come here but we've been killed little by little i hope people can understand the. staff at the privately run shelter say they've already provided food shelter and medical assistance to around two thousand migrants and they expect thousands more to arrive at the shelter in the coming days neither tropical heat
and seasonal downpours nor threats of detention from security forces have deterred the migrants. and i think it was a really hard decision to come i have two small children one and two years old that are doing this to avoid more suffering president donald trump has threatened to cut off hundreds of millions of dollars of aid to honduras guatemala and el salvador if the migrant caravan isn't stopped and turned around but for the people who are escaping a region beset by gang violence poverty and corruption such threats have little meaning. that it's a troubling action because the poor have never benefited from this aid not from the alliance for prosperity more from free trade agreements basically those who are rich benefits while the poor are excluded and so they continue to migrate. more hundred migrants are arriving here by the minute both say that they're going to stay in the shelters for the night to rest up before heading towards the mexican border. that's
a journey that's more than two hundred fifty kilometers long and with a lot of rain in the forecast it's going to be a difficult journey with little to lose these migrants say they're determined to push north regardless of what stands in their way but with the trumpet ministration intent on stopping the caravan before it reaches the u.s. border their dreams of a better life could be cut short david mercer al jazeera in guatemala city. their ivory coast ruling coalition manages to hold on to its majority it has suffered enough to rebuild trust in the political class. south korea's president meets the pope. and sturrock invitation from kenya. and pakistan edged closer to a series win over straight action from a second test in sport. hello
