9:00 pm
turning back on bilateral ties with iran what president donald trump has done is to show people there will be no blurred lines between friends and enemies from around the world a big group of pro independents stormed the police station. killing four placements . this is zero. and i welcome to the al-jazeera news out on live from my headquarters in doha i'm in is a problem coming up in the next sixty minutes. in front of an empty space where his coffin should lie. as reports submerge of another audio recording from inside the
9:01 pm
saudi consulate where he was murdered. also ahead the british prime minister goes radioactive to sell her troubled plan while some of her colleagues downfall and why the long wait for scientists who've been trying to redefine the kilogram. non-porous with all your sports roger federer reaches the semifinals of the season ending told months in london two wins away from clinching his one hundredth career it's all. muslims around the world have been remembering saw the journalists during friday prayers as they gathered at mosques and in asia to saudi arabia and the u.k. andersen's reports from istanbul forty five days. they come to pray. with the grief that permeates
9:02 pm
a gray rainy day. abound all the more poignant because of the empty space of the most solid stone here where a coffin should rest one of his friends set the tone of the day after this prayer we are going to look for. justice not anger. deep grief but we are looking consistently justice for. another friend expressed similar sentiment even by moment done by us into this was a barbaric act committed in the twenty first century this wasn't just the murder expressions of anguish of regret and the quest for justice amongst it all more revelations from a turkish media about the last moments of jamal khashoggi his life events that
9:03 pm
dispute the saudi account of what happened. took his harriet newspaper says a so far on heard of odia recording disproves the saudi assertion that jews murder was not planned the newspaper says the team can be heard discussing how to kill him the audio apparently contradicts the latest version of events from the saudis who are only twenty four hours ago said he died after being injected with a large dose of sedative following a brawl. and turkish investigators say it's already been established from the original recording that g. was strangled to death a not drugged a ruling party official who knew well says the saudi investigation can't be credible. it's an investigation that is headed by the crown prince and that investigation says he isn't related to what happened in each one organization of this investigation is problematic you can expect an independent fair judgment from
9:04 pm
that court among those here were many who didn't know because shoji he was murdered in the tragic way unfortunately so that's why i'm here today it's really symbolic for me to this prayer. is impossible not to react as a muslim and the human being we are here to do our duty for jamal khashoggi for loved ones who maintain privacy on this day there may be some level of comfort spiritually but closure seems a long distance away and drew simmons al-jazeera is dumble. well let's go now to tony he's standing by outside the consulate and talk us through what's heard tony in the latest order of according. well i have to say there is no corroboration yet of this revelation that's been put out by her newspaper except
9:05 pm
that the newspaper has been very close to the government on this story i have to say that all the leaks have proved to be accurate and all the denials by the saudis have been proven to be false so there's probably some credibility we've had no response from the turkish government or the saudis yet on this but it does show that there was premeditation or something that the saudis have always denied they said this was basically almost an accident that this was an attempt to persuade mr casady to come back to saudi arabia a fight ensued and he was killed there was no premeditation and there was no orders from on high this is something they decided what this revelation today says that it was premeditation there was a tape which according to this newspaper showed that these so-called saudi hit squad was planning to kill mr because argy there were discussing who was going to do what and how and that there are several other elements that go into this equation what makes you think there are serious questions to be answered there also evidence that the turkish authorities of late about suitcases having being bought
9:06 pm
by the saudi consulate members on the morning of mystical soldiers murder these relate to seeing going out of the consulate it's believed that perhaps mystical saudis body parts were in these two cases there's also evidence they say about a phone call that was made after mr mystical saudis murder when a phone call to saudi arabia when someone said tell the boss the deed has been done now the question mark is who is the boss a lot of fingers of suspicion have been pointing at the crown prince mohammed bill solomon they have denied that the saudis they said he played no part in this but there is strong suspicion that he was involved what this revelation from area does also say is that this now takes this case very much back to the doorstep of the saudi royal court now it wasn't the crown prince the question is who was it and from the mine. and the saudi government have said that they have identified a number of individuals some of them are even going to face the death penalty
9:07 pm
they're not going to extradite them to turkey as has turkey have been asking for so then what are turkey's options now for this investigation turkey wants the united nations to have an independent investigation into this they say that's the only fair way to resolve this matter to bring the truth into the open there's lots of evidence that has not been revealed we're talking about the tapes no one apart from some governments have heard these tapes and certainly not want today the americans the british the germans the french have all heard that first seven minute tape but we don't know exactly what's on those tapes and what more revelations are due to come there may be some video that's coming those video on social media purporting to be from the scene whether the whether or not that is accurate remains to be seen but there's still a long way to go in this story and no one seems to be pushing the saudis any strongly about this we have twenty one people as you say who have either been indicted or or are under investigation but no names no court dates no charges yet
9:08 pm
goes further to fuel suspicion that there's going to be a whitewash and some people are going to be the fall guys but not the real culprits tony thank you very much for that for now that is tiny barely live and as will thank you. now u.s. senators are proposing sanctions on saudi arabia for the murder of jamal khashoggi and for the kingdom's role in yemen's war the bill is supported by republicans and democrats and seeks to block arm sales and prevent saudi warplanes from refueling at u.s. bases mike hanna reports from washington d.c. . arrives today to call for an end to the u.s. involvement in the war in yemen well the issue after moloch was not on the senate agenda today it was very much on the minds of senators it was the senate that invoked the global mix act in terms of which the sanctions have been imposed and while the move has been welcomed senators on both sides of the aisle insist it does not go far enough. senator rand paul is one of those who insists the saudi crown
9:09 pm
prince should be among those sanctioned maintaining muhammad at least knew of the murder and probably ordered it i think opinion is changing over whether or not we should be arming saudi arabia and they did some of it themselves you know by chopping up a dissident which wasn't really probably the best for their public relations a view echoed by senator bob corker the administration today sent out notice that they were sanctioning seventeen of individuals that were involved hopefully additional steps were made up asked for a level briefing with matters peo and you know i asked paul to come in as soon as we get back to share with us what is happening with saudi arabia on both fronts both yemen and what is happening as it relates to the journalist who was assassinated in my opinion at the garage and the crown prince of saudi arabia us and this from the democrat senator ben cardin i remain concerned that the administration is enabling the kingdom of saudi arabia in its effort to protect
9:10 pm
crown prince mohammed bin salman from accountability the u.s. state department describes the saudi announcements up indictments as a good first step implicitly implying that the should not be seen as the end of the process this is a step in the right direction it is an initial investigation finding it is important that those steps continue to be taken toward full accountability we will continue to work diligently to ascertain the facts but congress making very clear it will maintain pressure for stronger action to be taken by the trumpet ministration and introduced in the senate what is called the comprehensive saudi arabia accountability and yemen act the bipartisan legislation demands among other things the suspension of u.s. arms sales as a sanction for both the saudi role in yemen and the murder of jamal khashoggi if possible could face the veto of
9:11 pm
a president who strongly. posed to economic moves against saudi arabia but this veto in turn could be overridden by a two thirds majority vote which with congress in its present angry mood is a real possibility mike hanna al-jazeera washington let's move on to other news now and u.s. president donald trump says he's written answers for the investigation into russian meddling in the twenty sixteen u.s. election trump has repeatedly criticized special counsel robert morris inquiry calling it a witch hunt he says is drawing to a close and that he answered the questions himself my lawyers are working on that i'm working that i write the interest by law is the right answers i write it says i was asked a series of questions i've answered the very easily very easily i'm sure there tripped up because you know they like to catch people you know with the weather sunny or was it brady he said it may have been a good day it was really there for he told a lie perjured himself ok so you have to always be careful with your questions with
9:12 pm
people that probably have bad intentions but. you know it's the questions were very routinely answered by me by me let's get more on this now white house correspondent kimberly hellcat is joining us live from washington d.c. so where is the investigation is that coming to an end could it be coming to an end as donald trump a suggesting and as we heard even last week kimberly. we've been hearing that for a long time many many months in fact there were suggestions by donald trump's legal team about this time last year that the investigation would be coming to an end but of course we now see that that has not been the case but it has been very quiet in the last eight weeks and that has a lot to do with the fact that the midterm elections were taking place in the united states we didn't hear very much from robert mueller in fact the last move really heard anything on this case was september fourteenth when paul manna for donald trump's former presidential campaign chair pled guilty said he was working
9:13 pm
with investigators but things got very quiet so with the election's over now much of washington has been bracing itself trying to figure out what will happen next there are certainly some very close advisers to donald trump by the name of roger stone jerome corsi they have both said publicly they expect to be indicted charged by the special prosecutor so there's a holding of breath in that regard and then there's a lot of interest about the president and we've known for many many months that the special prosecutor robert mueller is very interested in hearing from the president specifically when it speaks to the issue of the firing of the former f.b.i. director james comey want you to know his answers base of course this many have suggested was the president's desire intent to obstruct justice in the overall russia probe so in that clip you played just a moment ago you have the president there saying that he believes that his answers
9:14 pm
were very forthright that his lawyers will go over them and as he said again on twitter and as he has said repeatedly in the last twenty four hours and also in the last year or so he is also cast doubt on this investigation saying that he believes it's a witch hunt saying that again that there is no collusion and that he has nothing to hide can be a couple of questions about that what is the procedure and why is the president giving his. writing and also you mentioned that there wasn't a lot of activity we didn't hear a lot because of the midterm elections we know that there's a different makeup of congress with democrats holding more power in the house of representatives now do we know yet what that will mean for the investigation. ok so let me take these in two parts we'll take the second part first the reason that we didn't hear very much has an awful lot to do i suspect with the twenty sixteen presidential election you will remember right before the vote it was thrown into chaos when the f.b.i.
9:15 pm
director at the time james komi reopened an investigation into hillary clinton's e-mails many people felt that he unfairly influence the election by doing so and so one would suspect that as a former f.b.i. director himself robert mueller. took history into account and let's not have a repeat of two thousand and sixteen for these twenty eight hundred midterm elections and that's very much been the speculation in washington although robert mueller himself has never spoken to that now in terms of the written answers this is a legal procedure in the united states this is called discovery it's called the investigation this is slightly different than a standard trial but it's still a legal process where the special prosecutor can negotiate with donald trump's lawyers and we know that there has been an awful lot of that going on for many months and it appears that what they've agreed instead of having the president sit down for a verbal interview and that could still happen but right now what has been agreed to is that the president would give answers in writing and then they would go from
9:16 pm
there so this is the procedure that both legal teams decided on we do know the president's schedule this week has been very light and we're understanding that the reason for that is because he has been consulting with his legal team all this week so apparently a lot of preparation done before the president put pen to paper now we understand from his own words there that his legal team will review those answers before they are submitted to the special counsel committee thank you very much for breaking all of that down for us that his company how it could live in washington d.c. thank you. now donald trump has lost his latest battle with the news channel c.n.n. at least for now a judge has ordered the press pass for the network's wash house correspondent be temporarily reinstated jim acosta's access was revoked last week after the president objected to his line of questioning in a fiery media conference acosta was also accused of being aggressive towards a white house aide when she tried to take a microphone from him c.n.n. took legal action citing a violation of the reporter's constitutional rights the judge ruled that due

a political crisis in israel's government with the defense minister resigning russian has a new secretary one day off to dominic robb resigned to protest trey's amaze draft agreement on the u.k.'s exit from the e.u. earlier in the day may took to the airwaves fielding calls from radio listeners in an attempt to sell her bricks a deal and also the criticism hitting her from all sides. this is not the deal of the future relationship with the european union the deal of the future relationship with the european union means we take back control of our laws we end free movement take back control of our borders take back control of our money so we can spend it on priorities like the n.h.s. we're out of the customs union but the single market rather the common agricultural policy rather the common fisheries policy that's right i think people voted for that's what i'm delivering. let's get more on this now correspondent john holl is joining us live from london so as to resume a tries to sell this plan new ministers being appointed join
9:19 pm
a government is it getting back on its feet is it looking more stable. well it's certainly trying to and it is looking more stable but in this context a stable government in this country means it might last the weekend so i wouldn't jump to any conclusions yes she has appointed new ministers including amber rudd a pro remain minister a very close ally of tourism a she left the government just under a year ago she's returned to it now to fill one of the posts vacated on thursday another boost for trees amazed that five for zero leave cabinet ministers who had been considering their position following those resignations on thursday have decided to stay on to stay with her to push this deal through if they can one of them is michael gove's he's the most senior architect of briggs it's still standing in government and he decided to leave that might have been very troublesome for
9:20 pm
juries amazing it's good for her for now that he's staying but this is a government hanging on by a thread as you say she was out trying to sell the deal the draft brigs it agreement to the public having largely failed to sell it to parliament she didn't have an easy ride in this live radio phone in this morning one caller said to her look it's time to do the right thing and stand down another compared to neville chamberlain the prime minister of nine hundred thirty eight who struck a deal with adult hitler a year before world war two broke out but she did give the impassioned defense of her deal that she gave to parliament unfortunately a new poll suggests that only fourteen percent of british people believe her well fifty five percent or more are beginning to think that a second referendum is the way out of all of this so given all of that china as we head into the weekend just how tentative how fragile is her position is she still
9:21 pm
facing the prospect of a leadership challenge and that's before we even get to the possibility of a second referendum. well we'll know more next week there is talk but there's been talk for weeks albeit accelerated talk of the last twenty four hours or so that these letters are flying in now to the backbench committee the nine hundred twenty two committee of the conservative party forty eight letters need to be received by its chairman that's fifteen percent of sitting conservative party m.p.'s in order to trigger a no confidence vote in the prime minister if those forty eight letters arrive then the chairman has to trigger that vote it may happen next week there's talk of it happening on tuesday the truth is nobody knows how many letters have gone in when they when they arrive the vote will be triggered of course if she loses that she will be done for but one has to wonder whether if there is intelligence within the conservative party that there are enough m.p.'s against her why five senior cabinet
9:22 pm
ministers have decided to stay in post it's looking rather like if there's a vote she'd survive it china thank you very much for that finale that's john holl live in london thank you. now to sri lanka where police have been cordoned to keep em pings from fighting each other but tempers flare as the appointed prime minister mohammed asha pocs a failed to get the pack backing of parliament this week but a smith has the latest on the battle for power and columbus was. at the heart of sri lanka's democracy total breakdown of law and order the speaker of parliament could only end of the chain but with an advance police god a supporters of appointed prime minister mahinda rajapaksa old furniture water spiked with chili was in the constitution while those who drafted the weighty book wanted m.p.'s to exploit its full force they probably didn't mean it to be taken literally was the fraying tempers all aimed at stopping

9:37 pm
had taken the decisions regarding refugees regarding migration which many people in the city are in some ways the reason why tension has risen here so was that. her answer was that the government had learned from the errors that it had made but it was toughening the laws that was trying to send back more people who would come here claiming asylum in a bogus way but that she felt that it was important to democracy for all strands of opinion to be heard that's why she said she'd come here even though some questions asked her why has she taken so long had she not missed the opportunity that her perspective was no it was the right time to listen to what people have to say question will be whether she wants to listen to the thought process and the slogans coming from events like this one. now as we reported earlier britain's prime minister is getting plenty of hate over her exit day and but she's facing criticism on another front so how do you weigh. when

9:39 pm
i think is being done to the fabric of british society to the sense of community which is been built in part of the sports center is the recreation places the public lands that are being sold off the libraries that are being closed down the youth centers that are being downsized and soon there will be nowhere for people in the lower income groups to go it's perfect because those higher income groups will have more money because their taxes are being counted but they will find themselves living in an increasingly hostile and unwelcoming society because the community roots are being systematically broken. now ben reynolds is the deputy chief executive officer steyn wishes an alliance for better food and farming and he says the government needs to focus more on its people and less on the politics of bricks it. we've already seen problems around job losses with potentially more to come and
9:40 pm
they create the risks around and no deal breakers that are well documented we have food businesses highlighting the potential delays with border checks queues of ports which means that some perishable goods can be more difficult to import and this is going to put a you know real problems in terms of those who are who find it hardest to afford a good diet. their relative in the longer term that you know there are there's a mystery around being able to get sort of better trade deals in order to get better prices but. this doesn't really sort of follow through what we need to make sure is that actually there is you know there are jobs and there is decent benefits support and a decent on the line that a decent. availability of good food for all and that i think sadly may get lost in amongst all the political wrangling now china could be becoming iran's most important economic ally chinese industry has a huge thirst for iranian oil and are staying a loyal customer despite u.s. pressure and sanctions on iran iran's economic lifeline and the same bus driving

reports from tehran. u.s. president donald trump has threatened to punish chinese companies to do business with iran but no one at this car parts expo into iran seem to worried no doubt the wheels of commerce are spinning a little slower in iran these days but the history of trade ties between the persian and chinese people is older than that of most modern nations having cultivated commercial links for so long many chinese businesses are now taking the long view of iran's future maybe their public the problem for the right for the time being but the problem would go away if you for say i would tell you that what things will happen in the future no one can help and we chinese believe that nothing is impossible and new we've seen that you know i mean also is a very strong. and we admire that spirit of the way you write i think that we can always a fine fine a way. to do business with. the economic climate in iran is unstable something that
