manage to get president putin. stopping assad from any kind of intervention but still there is concern in europe russia has been trying to get europe to pay for syria's reconstruction arguing that this would facilitate the return of millions of syrians displaced by the war. but it seems europe has not changed its position at least not publicly just days before the summit france made clear where it stands it says the international community needs to pressure damascus to engage in the political process and that the un committee reforming the syrian constitution needs to start work before the end of the year so far the syrian government is refusing to cooperate you have led efforts have been overshadowed by a diplomatic track the asked in a process that is led by syrian government allies russia and iran the main backer of the opposition turkey they are the power brokers but they can't shape the political outcome without the international community is very interesting because

the united states was here we don't have significant u.s. or present issues but it's kind of. a signal that this summit is important how significant but rather russians are centricity to get something again frankly skeptical about it russia and turkey want to talk about rebuilding syria and they want money but that is premature even moscow says any breakthrough during the summit is not expected and the financial commitment from the west is unlikely until world powers agree on a political solution for syria. is stumble an investigation by the associated press in the democratic republic of congo it's found that hospitals routinely imprison patients who fail to pay their hospital bills the news agency says it's a common practice in most hospitals and clinics in the copper mining city. many of its patients are healthy enough to be discharged but they're not allowed to if they kept pay the government is called

11:49 am
has i'm thinking this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up i heard he was a person referred to your brother a trump supporters been arrested charged with sending pipe bombs to the president's opponents. and the shark in sri lankan politics in a movie no one was expecting the ex-president sworn in as prime minister. fiance has revealed how worried she was about his ill fated visit to the saudi consulate in istanbul in her first interview with turkish t.v. since the journalist killing more than three weeks ago she says she was reassured by he didn't believe authorities would dare interrogate or arrest him in a foreign country is dan balz prosecutor is now demanding the extradition of
11:50 am
eighteen suspects from saudi arabia for her killing charles stratford with the latest developments this is. what happened on october the second says the turkish t.v. graphic was with her last words together why was job market sure she worried. her first t.v. interview since her fiance was killed in the saudi consulate on october the second . he was very happy indeed on the basis that he was writing them because his close friends including other journalists on intellectuals are now in prison so there was a certain moral responsibility he had to take on used to say the fact that i'm in america isn't just about me writing for the washington post i'm writing things my friends on table in terms of details that was lit. in the interview we don't already know heidi she did mention that although they were both nervous about these
11:51 am
appointments on october the second she said that he had told her consulate staff were treated him well during a previous visit on september the twenty eight so by winning because she's confidence had a trap been sent it's been more than three weeks since jamal khashoggi was last seen alive and turkish president rajeev tiber no one is ratcheting up the pressure at a meeting with ruling party members he said he believed that at least someone among the eighteen men arrested in saudi arabia implicated in the killing of two shows he must know where the body is he mocked and sweat and the saudi leadership blaming them so he says for not cooperating with the investigation enough to be enemies the bush got of course there's other information and evidence we're holding that will be used when the time comes but no need to rush because saudi officials have to say who killed. they made certain announcements which gave us considerable concern
11:52 am
their explanations were quite comical but childish excuses do not befit a responsible state or responsible statesmanship. the saudi prosecution said on thursday that on the basis of information shared by the turks it is now investigating. the saudis say they don't know where these body is and insists the crown prince muhammad bin solomon had no role in his death. saudi arabia's chief prosecutor is jew in turkey on sunday but on friday evening after president had repeatedly called the saudi suspects to be tried in turkey the country's justice ministry submitted an extradition request to saudi arabia for the eighteen arrested men the senior turkish official told her this was requested because jamal khashoggi was murdered in turkey by saudi nationals who travel to turkey for this specific purpose in his speech earlier earlier ones message was clear he said if
11:53 am
you can't make them talk then send them to turkey and we will put them on trial here charles stratford al jazeera is stumble. more now on that interview with fiance on turkish television television had she was critical of how the u.s. has handled the case she turned down an invitation from president trying to visit the white house. trump invited me to the united states during the first days of the process but his statements had very short time periods in between and they were contradictory i perceived it as a statement to win the sympathy of the public and fish is live for us now from istanbul so our what's been the reaction to that interview. well it's hard to judge when it's going in late in the afternoon here in turkey but
11:54 am
certainly given that she was so emotional during that period we think that jamal khashoggi fiance will garner even more public sympathy thing she had before it's going to be a very interesting forty eight hours here in turkey you have the president saying that they have more information about the killing and that we kind of knew and he said he will release it when the time is right now the time might well be right in the next forty eight hours as the prosecutor comes from saudi arabia to a stand build the talks on convinced that he is going to present a very solid case against the eighteen people conley being held in saudi arabia and so the me release more information to put pressure on him but also they're pressing ahead with the idea that the are going to go ahead with this extradition request they want the eighteen people to stand trial here in turkey that document has been prepared by the justice department it's been presented to the foreign office here in tukey and that will be hunted all into the foreign service in saudi arabia where
11:55 am
they will demand that those eighteen people are handed over. president and said they will go on trial here in turkey in front of an international commission which would ensure fair play but he wants to make sure that the people he believes are responsible for the death of jamal should be are held to account know what is also interesting as well is that he's saying that the that he wants the saudis to give up the name of the local cooperate or as the saudis called him the local tuck each person who was asked to dispose of the body they say they want his name they want to ask him where is the body is because that now has become the center of the turkish inquiry they're looking for where the body of jamal khashoggi . has been placed they know he was killed but where was the body or parts of the body suit and that puts the focus once again back on the consul general is back
11:56 am
garden you remember the turks have already searched there but there was a well that they couldn't get into so they want to bring in a specialist team but the specialist team wasn't named on the document that was handed to the saudis so the saudis even though they're saying they're giving full cooperation to the turks said that couldn't go ahead and the turks no have a warrant for that well and they may well believe that the body or part body parts of democracy in that well and so they will check that over the coming hours and over the coming days interestingly enough just in the last year as i said the consul general is property the turkish authorities have been searching the drains around there with cameras it's interesting too in the interview at that gym up show is fiance gave that she said that talked about the future and jamal khashoggi had talked about the day when he might die and he said that when he did die what he would like to happen is that his body would be returned to his hometown of medina
11:57 am
and so do arabia and be buried there that is know something that she thinks will never happen allan thank you allan faith in istanbul force assaying askari is a professor of international business and affairs at george washington university he says an extradition simply won't happen. anyone who knows anything about saudi arabia would tell you that in saudi arabia this is has not happened without the approval and the direct involvement of prince n.b.s. as he's called all that came and put the saudis to send these eighteen men or fifteen men or whatever number outside of saudi arabia they would be losing control of this whole affair because if they keep it in saudi arabia it will have some kind of concocted trial it would not be open it never is open and this will be the end
11:58 am
of it and they will come up with something to try to satisfy the world that if they send them to technically they will lose total control and they will be up a creek but turkey also wants to be careful and want something out of this i think what maybe it is looking for the moment to arrive at some kind of a compromise is to get saudi arabia to maybe help with the blockade of back have let that loose i think tell key will one bravia is cooperation in syria and i think at the end of the road also maybe turkey wants some something actual assistance from saudi arabia a supporter of donald trump could spend the rest of his life in jail after being accused of sending at least thirteen pipe bombs to high profile critics of the u.s. president fifty six year old assess his facing five federal charges after he was arrested in florida early on friday and the f.b.i. is warned there could be more explosive devices elizondo reports from new york.
11:59 am
after an intense nationwide manhunt the arrest of a florida man who authorities believe is connected to numerous mail bombs sent to high profile people the past few days these are not hoax devices the suspect caesar say och appeared to be a supporter of president donald trump on the site of a van connected to him that authorities confiscated were stickers praising the president and other stickers of opposing wall makers through the scope of a gun on friday before the suspect was arrested mail bombs were directed at democratic senator cory booker and the former director of national intelligence james clapper previous day's mail bombs have been sent to former presidents bill clinton and barack obama as well as prominent trump critics such as george soros actor robert de niro and john brennan the former head of the cia all the devices
12:00 pm
looked like this but none detonated early friday trump seemed to cast doubt on the seriousness of the bomb threat saying the news coverage of it was taking away from the upcoming congressional midterm elections republicans are doing so well in early voting and at the polls and now this bomb stuff happens and the momentum greatly slows news not talking politics read part of the tweet democratic lawmaker debbie wassermann schultz who received a pipe bomb said the president should bear some responsibility when you would people into a frenzy when you carelessly not think about what the impact of your words particularly at the highest level of office in this country then you you are acting grossly irresponsibly well i think i've been toned down you want to know that i could really cut it out because as you know the media has been extremely unfair to me and.
