a humanitarian situation in yemen weston's the u.n. envoy says the warring parties have agreed to attend peace talks in sweden. for the trump says he's given a written answers to questions from them when the investigation into russian and election mentally. with all the all sports coverage aims to stay on course for the final of the season ending championships well i want to read just federal alexander's very could be white and. say that the texas presidency says that recip time but when and u.s. president donald trump have agreed in a phone call that no aspect of jamal a console g.'s mudda should be left on covet this is a major turkish newspaper says there is more evidence that contradicts saudi arabia's explanation over the journalist's death reports that turkey possesses
12:02 am
another already a recording related to the killing in which a fifteen member team allegedly discusses how to motivate before he stepped into the saudi consulate in istanbul that suggest the motive was premeditated directly contradicting the saudi. prosecutors statement on they suspected of being behind the killing just twenty four hours ago he said the journalist died when an attempt to take him to sign the arabia went wrong meanwhile muslims around the world have been remembering friday prayers as the morals were held in turkey in the u.k. in indonesia and in saudi arabia under seven's reports now from istanbul forty five days of the jamal khashoggi is murder they come to pray with a grief that pony it's a gray rainy day. abound all the more poignant because of the empty space on the move in here where
12:03 am
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 the anger. the deep the 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 little more revelations from the turkish media about the last moments of jamal khashoggi his life events that dispute the saudi account of what happened. took his harriet newspaper says a so far on the hood of odia recording disproves the saudi assertion that jews
12:04 am
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 only twenty four hours ago said he died after being injected with an large dose of seventy five following a brawl and turkish investigators say it's already been established from the original recording that close shoji 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 that court among those here were many who didn't know because shoji who was
12:05 am
murdered in that tragic way unfortunately so that's why i'm here today it's really symbolic for me to see this prayer. that ms mentioned it is impossible not to react as a muslim and the human being we are here to do our duty for jamal khashoggi because she loved ones who maintain privacy on this day maybe some level of comfort spiritually but closure seems a long distance away and drew simmons al-jazeera is tumble. to tell anybody our correspondent who is live for us in istanbul in turkey what do you make of this this latest news that presidents have agreed to expose all aspects of the killing it. well i think the turkish side would like that to happen whether or not that will i'm not sure because although there's been a joint turkish saudi investigation into the aspects of this murder the turkish
12:06 am
authorities have complained that the saudis were not using investigators more forensic team designed to cover up aspects of the murder so there's a deep suspicion that the saudis are not playing ball here there is concern also that all the evidence is not coming out from the saudi side and those concerns are basically there's going to be a whitewash even though the saudis have said that they've got eleven people who've been charged with aspects of this murder five of them they're pressing for the death penalty so there are question marks about who is being charged and what with and will this be completely open and fair there are concerns also about you know this new tape that's come out it does show that if it's true that there is a premeditation on the part of the saudi hit team who were in that in the saudi consulate because this tape we're told was recorded before mystical saudi went into the consulate it talked about how they were going to kill mr karzai and what the individual roles in that killing would be so that does show premeditation we took
12:07 am
these authorities have said that these new revelations actually take back to the doorstep of the saudi court and the question mark is who is the finger of suspicion being pointed out it's always been said that it's the crown prince mohammed bin solomon the saudis always denied that they said he's been exonerated but if it is indeed on the footstep of the saudi world court then who is the finger now pointing at if it's not the crown prince of the lots of questions here and still no answers tony thanks very much indeed tony burley reporting there from istanbul thank you. now the un's yemen envoy says the country's war and parties have committed to attend peace talks in sweden on the ground the rebels say the saudi iraqi coalition is continuing to bomb data despite announcing that it had ordered a pause in the fighting with you officials say at least six civilians have been killed in a strikes how to day has more now from djibouti. and for the.
12:08 am
fighting has resumed in the city they are calling. from announced by the sodium rhotic or lucian nothing short of a tactic to regroup they say the pro-government forces have been getting grain foresman from other parts of the country in the past forty eight hours they're also spoke of air strikes that killed up to six civilians on friday in the day that of course the whole thing also admitting that they've continued their operation against the pro-government forces saying they have been getting positions around outskirts of the city of belonging to the pro-government fighters meanwhile the international committee of the red cross has issued a statement calling for more discipline among the combatants in and around the day that they say before we talk about peace we need to talk about the enforcement of international law the whole thing of targeting of civilian areas and also
12:09 am
respecting places like hospitals and schools the international red cross also called for the respect of the center of civilian lives in the war in yemen or let's go straight to the united nations where our diplomatic editor james bays is standing by a j is what's being said there about what's going on. an important security council meeting underway as i speak in the chamber of the security council the kuwaiti ambassador representing the arab league and the arab countries is currently speaking we just heard from the british ambassador karen pierce with important news she says she'll be presenting a new resolution to the security council on monday for them to vote on in shrine ing some of the demands from the humanitarian community including putting in place a safe of hostilities around the facilities of the aid operation and particularly
12:10 am
around her date soon important development in the last couple of minutes here in the security council and it follows comments from the special envoy martin griffiths who says he's getting closer edging closer to talks which he hopes to be able to convene shortly in sweden it is a crucial moment for yemen i've received firm assurances from the leadership of the yemeni parties the governor of yemen of course first and then they are committed to attending these consultations i believe they're genuine i like suspect them to continue in that way and to. appear for those consultations and indeed so do the yemeni people who are desperate for a political solution to a war in which they are the main victims. and more on those victims of course the humanitarian impact of all of this is really devastating the
12:11 am
security council has been hearing from the head of the world food program david beasley an earlier he spoke to reporters here at the united nations making it clear that the situation is very bad yemenis do not have enough food right now and he says it could be between two and six months or now that there is a complete famine in yemen just listen to his comments about his trip in the last few days to yemen he visited her data one little child and i remember a little feet was sticking out the blanket and you know it's kind of cute and i went to called the little feet you know they get out get a little smile and just like took on a ghost and nothing there. james what about the saudis or how are they likely to respond to all of this. this of course is the very important question what is saudi going to do right now given this resolution is coming forward the peace talks
12:12 am
are coming forward it's difficult to ascertain but i have been speaking to diplomats i've been traveling in the last weeks i've been speaking to diplomats and officials in washington d.c. in paris and here in new york and although the u.n. is putting a pretty positive spin on things it's clear that things aren't perhaps going as well as they'd like with regard to the saudis the international community had thought that with saudi under so much pressure right now perhaps on yemen they'd give some ground but saudis i'm told do not like the idea of this sort of resolution going before the u.n. security council they are protesting i'm told by diplomats behind the scenes about this suggesting that if a resolution is passed perhaps they won't then attend the peace talks in sweden so i think the saudi part of this the response of the saudi led coalition is the thing
12:13 am
we need to watch right now i'm also getting word that maybe the position of members of the coalition is somewhat different that the united arab emirates of course another key member of the coalition is more favorable to the idea of a ceasefire in yemen than saudi arabia or that the better the united nations james bay thanks very much more children have been killed in syria in the first nine months of two thousand and eighteen than in any other year since the seven year war began that's according to the u.n. children's agency unicef says at least eight hundred seventy children were killed between january and september but that number is likely to be much higher earlier this month around thirty children were killed in u.s. led airstrikes in alice schaeffer village in eastern syria the kurdish and says it was bombing eisold targets. still ahead on the. u.k. prime minister appoints the breaks it. faces
12:14 am
a fight to keep. peace a call to sri lanka's parliament says proceedings over the disputed prime minister descend into chaos for a second day. of the golden state. with steph curry still sidelined through injury more on that coming up with. the u.s. president says he's completed written and says to questions posed by special counsel investigation into russia's role in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. election donald trump told reporters he answered the questions easily when there is investigating whether members of trump's two thousand and sixteen presidential campaign team colluded with russia my lawyers are working on that i'm working that i write the answer spoilage the right answers i write letters. to
12:15 am
a series of questions i've answered the very easily very easily i'm sure there tripped up because you like to catch people to get over the weather sunny or was it raining he said it may have been a good day it was rainy therefore he told a lie perjured himself ok so you have to always be careful when you answer questions with people that probably have bad intentions but. you know it's. the questions were very routinely answered by me by me. she have written he joins us live from from washington. says he wrote them himself and he read them easily. right and that's raising some eyebrows because we've got several reports that have been many sessions hours long sessions in the white house over the last few days with donald trump and his lawyers trying to draft the answers to these questions don't trouble saying that you know as he said it was really easy to answer them however we do know that the his lawyers dispose of missing the
12:16 am
questions arose because they had concerns rudolph giuliani want to trust lawyers and there were concerns about the issue that all top mentioned there that there may be hidden perjury traps perjury trap so when prosecutors sticken questions which intended to entice the subject to lie basically partly because that because the prosecutors don't have enough evidence to convict on the initial charge so they're going to go after them theoretically then they think they can go after them on the subsequent lying so that's what that's what they're going to case about that all trumpeted all together been saying is that they were perjury traps sick because i don't have enough evidence on the on the actual charges so they're trying to try to make me lie in my in my answers to the questions however we do expect the quote the answers to be submitted before the end of this week we understand are about a half two dozen questions the lawyers and all trump of chosen only to answer the questions on collusion alleged collusion with the russians for the moment not on
12:17 am
obstruction of justice as a timeframe for the questions all before the president was sworn in and there's a greater speculation now that robert mueller is at the closing stages of his investigation of a maybe more indictments we often hear speculation like that and we are hearing there's a result many reports that suggest that as a result the mood is pretty grim in the white house as they brace themselves for more indictments however don't try and they're saying look frankly he's not he's not bothered but that does go against all of the reporting we've been hearing over the last week what is a process head that she had that given the answers in writing when somebody could donald trump could still appear in person. right the giuliani have said they're going to after they submit the questions discussions can begin on whether whether robert mueller wants a face to face interview the lawyers he says don't want don't want any kind of face to face interview or and he sort of subpoena certainly to to a grand jury or any other investigation don't trump every now and then so he can't wait to talk to robert mueller because he's going to hide but you know that is
12:18 am
still a possibility it's not necessarily clear whether either side wants once about in the political circus that would surround it but it all depends now on whether donald trump does eventually answer all the questions robert mueller has as i said he's only answering the questions right now and on collusion it seems that they have a strategy here that first they're going to deal with all the questions of collusion and then once that they will deal with and the other questions about obstruction of justice or anything else that robert mueller might have dug up and his investigation so we have to see how satisfied the special counsel is before we know whether whether there will be any subpoenas or any voluntary interviews with him but with donald trump between the special counsel and so it goes on that she had thanks very much did she have a chance reporting from washington d.c. well the white house is she returned the c.n.n. correspondent jim acosta's press pass for now on the orders of a judge acosta had his credentials taken away after he clashed with the u.s. president on the trump at last week's post midterms press conference the judge ordered that his policies must be reinstated while a c.n.n.
12:19 am
lawsuit against the president continues. around to two thousand central american migrants marching across mexico towards the united states have reached to ana on the border marines have been securing the border wall on the u.s. side with barbed wire as the migrants approach your thirty's have opened up a sports complex into one to take up to three thousand people thousands of central americans are fleeing violence and poverty in their countries hoping to seek asylum in the united states. stephen barclay has been named as the u.k.'s new break that secretary he replaces dominate rob he resigned on thursday over the draft bricks agreements made by prime minister trees in may of the group rebels within may's conservative party are trying to launch a leadership challenge accusing her of selling out she's been defending her plan on the radio this is not the deal of the future relationship with the european union
12:20 am
the deal of the future relationship with the european union means we take back control of our last weekend 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. went out of the customs union but how do the single market rob the common agricultural policy rather the cause issues policy that's rising people voted for that's what i'm delivering so let's hear now from general who has more from outside the u.k. parliament. well the ship of state on friday evening is looking more stable than it was twenty four hours ago theresa may has appointed a new briggs's secretary replacing dominic robb who resigned on thursday stephen bach lee up to now a junior health minister but crucially a leave supporter that portfolio requires a leave supporter to make it in any way effective he takes up the position albeit a portfolio reduced in stature to resume a will be leading the negotiations we're told at least over the next ten days with the e.u. she's also brought back into her cabinet and the rudd the former home secretary
12:21 am
approach remain minister and a close ally of to reason may to take up an estimate vai's position at work and pensions that's a big boost to the prime minister to have her ally back in cabinet and of course the five leave pro leave cabinet ministers who've been on the verge of resigning for the last twenty four hours including michael gove he's a big fish and they've all decided to stay on and try and see this deal of hers through the parliament so that stability restored up to a point in this context that doesn't mean much more than that she and the government may survive the weekend because next week there is the possibility of a leadership challenge coming to pass the forty eight letters are received by the backbench committee chairman calling for a vote of no confidence by conservative party m.p.'s we're told that number is approaching nobody will know until the moment comes but of course if three's amazed voted down to have to stand down whether there are the numbers in her party willing
12:22 am
to see her go though is another matter given that five of those senior cabinet ministers have decided to stay on they may know that the numbers simply aren't there to defeat the prime minister well let's take this on because right now georgina wright is a research associate with the europe program at chatham house international affairs a think tank she joins us here in georgia so say the ship of state is as jenna put it there was in serious danger of sinking is kind of righted itself now but for how long. i mean very good question and i think the whole process has been reading credible it's very hard to predict but we do know with absolute certainty is that it's complex and that the deal on the table isn't going to satisfy everyone and it never was going to satisfy everyone so people must expect it to cause a stir when it came back t.v. but where do we go from here big question i mean the parliament has to vote on this do not clear to me that they will vote in favor of back the government if they
12:23 am
don't lots of different scenarios possible at the moment we're still very much talking about whether it will go through a not we're not actually of a yet what about what about to resume is position in the course of the next few days is that it's going to stabilise for the movement. in the next few days yet the prime minister i mean has survived twenty four hours which have been really really tough but you know new point man in the new breaks is actually. he's come back as well and at the moment it seems like she's solidified again a leadership but you know we still have the possibility of forty eight and he's of her policy submitting les's and saying actually b.j. we don't we don't think that the prime minister is the right person for the job but at the moment she is safe. one wonders how this is all being viewed from europe the concerns that there are. i mean i think the e.u. has been pretty clear on how they feel that they say this is the outcome of length
12:24 am
the tiring and complex negotiations or to make the change will be in march whether that is a deal or not and actually this isn't the time to reopen negotiations because what we have on the table is as good as it can get and so they are absolutely adamant at the moment the not willing to reopen negotiations but again you know it's a negotiation we should see maybe they will be willing further down the line you talk to the various options the myriad options that might emerge as time goes on what about the possibility of a second referendum i mean also a good question i think the second referendum is is an interesting one because a lot depends on whether the withdrawal agreements that's on the table now gets through the u.k. parliament now it might be put forward and rejected but it ben might be accepted the second at the second reading if it's rejected again then i think there will be there might be a me from in the country that pushes for a second referendum for the moment that there's not enough public support for it
12:25 am
clearly there are some people who are disappointed clearly there are some people who are worried about the outcome of the country but it's not a given that that if this withdrawn agreement is rejected that the second referendum is the alternative and for now what about the secretary does you know she has a portfolio but does he actually have one well a lot of people i think you know frantically google search he who he was i think what you know what his kind of professional career shows it's now you know he engages in the detail he clearly is behind you know has taken up this position which is an important one but i think a promise made is probably looking for someone who is going to be engaging with it ditto is going to take it seriously deliver on the vote which is to leave the e but won't be obstructive perhaps in ways that of the candidates may have been so busy yet we'll see great georgina good to get your perspective on this project very much like you. well much more ahead on this news from london. with the six hundred
12:26 am
people now missing after california's deadly wildfires and family members want answers. we have an exclusive report on how rusher is trying to gain influence of one of central africa's most war torn countries. and some of the biggest waves in the business are on show the world surfing league of n.t. portugal paul will be here with the action in sport. alice the cold of winter is now flooding into europe from russia really where it's met the warm water the black sea seen a lot of thunder weather recently lower rate and some snow for the high ground in turkey that's now become a bit more apparent as book rest drops to two degrees you got snow here in romania and the cold air keeps going down for the g. and producing stormy weather i mean stormy weather from the point of use
12:27 am
thunderstorms in greece the same thing has been happening probably longer story actually in the western med and facade ania corsica and southern france it'll carry on nothing during saturday with sunday a pretty wet miserable picture throughout the far southwest of france look at spain and portugal in fact is the mediterranean way you see the story with the thunderstorms largely as the cold brings in largely drier air for a time but i riz more winter to come so the view fixed really is across the mediterranean with clouds rain thunderstorms in western libya tunisia you know geria during saturday so a fine looking day if rather cloudy in morocco that turns wetter come sunday we should see dry weather elsewhere because of the potential for this circulation somewhere near greece but the cloud is spreading through the eastern side of the mediterranean rain seems likely in cyprus and later in the levant.
12:28 am
the meeting voice of the business world mostly at expo brings together hundreds of companies and investors from all over the world if you all ready to enter new markets let's meet in turkey let's win together must get exposed november twenty first or the twenty fourth at c.n.n. all is dumble for details information and registration mosiah exposed dot com senator robert kennedy was assassinated in june one thousand nine hundred eighty eight sir hand sir hand is still serving a life sentence for his murder but there have been calls for decades for the case to be reopened including from robert kennedy jr. all the evidence was destroyed after the trial they had a legal obligation to say the evidence because sir ham was going to file an appeal al-jazeera world asks who killed robert kennedy. where not. i'm. not quite there yet you know and i know.
12:29 am
and again a reminder of the top stories here on al-jazeera and the turkish newspaper says turkey has an audio recording of a saudi team discussing how to mud the journalist. before he entered the consulate in istanbul it suggests the matter was premeditated. the un's yemen envoy says the country's warring parties have committed to attend peace talks in sweden on the ground he officials say at least six civilians have been killed in a strike by the saudi emirates he led coalition. the us president says he's completed written and says to questions posed by special counsel robert munoz
12:30 am
investigation into russia's role in the two thousand and sixteen u.s. election donald trump told reporters he answered the questions easily when as we mentioned earlier muslims around the world have been remembering jamal khashoggi at friday press mohamad. he is a professor of political ethics that had been university and joins us now from doha welcome to the program sir. spread expression of grief and sorrow at the passing of jamal khashoggi yeah. it's expected the this kind of absentee finot of prayer is usually done for. very special circumstances for example someone whose body vanished or destroyed. someone who died far away from the homeland and. also someone who.
12:31 am
send respect within the community and i would say. for these kind of. manic. for more than one reason. also the fact of the prayers being held in front of the plants as we can see there it's just loaded with political meaning as well isn't it of course it is worth it in saudi arabia and in turkey i think. for turkey. this is not the. first to guarantee that the issue or the death of the journal. is not forgotten by the world and for saudi arabia is to show that or they try to disassociate themselves from the murder of so it's definitely a lot to do if political meaning for different reasons is what is your sense of
12:32 am
where we are at right now especially in the light of this new order recording i believe the turks have a lot more evidence than what we have so far probably because they were dealing with saudi concert. as representative of. and in the government basically because as we know they accuse the saudi government for being complicit in the senate in turkey in two and sixteen. and it looks like they have a lot lot of recording i suppose some of my sources in tokyo and so are confirming they have much more right is that evidence likely to come to light in the public domain. it is very sensitive these kind of secret evidence as they call
12:33 am
it in the u.s. so because it's illegally it is sieved it's very hard to publish for the public and also it's very hard to use that the courts but still a very effective means in terms of political pressure and media pressure of course the saudi family have denied that the trail leads to the top but if this evidence is to be believed then one would it would suggest it does go all the way to the crown prince. i believe so and i think we that with that kind of dance the turks would probably not go too far on this issue of. looks like they have various saudi arguments connecting and b.s. through this issue and without it i don't think they would have gone too far on this but still probably they prefer to use it politically and more than legally
12:34 am
i mean how did she get to thank you very much indeed for joining us here now palestinians have gathered near the fence marking the border with israel for the thirty fourth weekly rally against the siege gaza's health minister says at least forty palestinians have been injured by israeli fire despite efforts to call attention organizers in gaza restraint after a ceasefire was agreed between palestinian factions and israel on choose day the truce ended the heaviest fighting between the two sides since the two thousand and fourteen war triggered a political crisis in israel's government with the defense minister resigning. supporters of sri lanka's disputed prime minister have flung books chairs and water mixed with chili powder to try and stop the no conference no motion against the government police were called to separate mahinda rajapaksa supporters from those who say his appointment as prime minister is unconstitutional and
12:35 am
a confidence vote was eventually passed the term all began when the prime minister sat when the president sacked his prime minister and replaced him with rajapaksa but it's worth reports now column. 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 guard a supporters of appointed prime minister mahinda rajapaksa felt furniture was spiked with chili. and 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 a vote of no confidence the supporters of rajapaksa know they'll lose. huddled behind the police guard is the speaker karoge eyesore. through the chaos
12:36 am
he's determined to push on was and with a show of hands the no confidence motion has passed for the second time this week was the speaker and the police retreat under a volley of miss silence while rajapaksa and his son now both in red scarves watch from the sidelines a supporter of the ousted prime minister running away from a singer summed up the vote who did it i did back again right to disrupt the whole parliament session but really we are able to pass a resolution saying that i did make sure government led by mind and i get back here is no normal but supporters of rajapaksa want an election to break the deadlock that's a tactic to bypass parliament all of us can pass an abortion calling the vile human for the solution and all of the violin for election challenging in war parliament has again been adjourned this time until monday carpenters will be in this weekend
12:37 am
to patch it up run a witnessing get the prime minister who says he was unconstitutionally fired last month returned to his official government residence physically unscathed and perhaps sensing a return to power the intensity of the violence in parliament has left m.p.'s shaken and still unresolved is the question of who governs sri lanka but after friday's events it must now be getting much harder for mahinda rajapaksa to legitimately claim the title of prime minister bernard smith al-jazeera because parliament. at least thirty seven people have died in violence between muslim and christian groups in central african republic after the united nations extended the mandate for its peacekeeping mission in the country for another month one hundred seventy russian military advisers are also on the ground and more on the way has been granted exclusive access to russian operations into rebel held territory nicholas haq has more from the town of.
