9:00 pm
turning back on lateral 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 cannot storm the playstation. killing for placement it's. this is al-jazeera. hello once again from doha everyone i'm coming from this is the news from al-jazeera there is more pressure on the united states to act after reports the cia has concluded that it was the saudi crown prince who ordered the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi also investigators shed new light on what happened to an
9:01 pm
argentine submarine that's finally been found a year after it disappeared. and tension in france drivers across the country protest against rising fuel prices. with all of. the noise roger federer the chance to add to his trophy collection. which could await the german in the a.t.p. fine. well of fingers being pointed squarely at saudi arabia's crown prince for directly ordering the killing of journalist jamal khashoggi this is perhaps the most definitive damning evidence on the investigation so far because it has come from the cia america's top spy agency the question is how will this man react the u.s. president donald trump who is just landed in count of four. he is there for an
9:02 pm
update on the wildfires literally he has just walked off the steps of air force one meeting local military and law enforcement there who are trying to bring the fires under control before he left the lawn of the white house though he answered some questions on the cia's findings have a listen we haven't been briefed yet the cia is going to be speaking to me today we have not been briefed yet as of this fall when we were told that he did not play a role we would have to find out what. we all saw the great ally saudi arabia they give us a lot of jobs to give us a lot of a lot of economic development. there that they should be exactly how i should. get on with development and i also take that you know president i think a lot of things you can raise. so we will be talking with the cia later and lots of others. more and all listen a moment what could possibly happen with the investigation but we'll start with
9:03 pm
this from mike hanna he has the details of the cia's findings in recent days a number of members of congress have demanded that muhammad have been sold one be held accountable either by way of tweets or in the case of senator bob corker during a debate about yemen in the senate and asked for a level briefing with matters pompei o n g i asked paul the comment assumes we get back to share with us what is happening with saudi arabia on both fronts both yemen and what is happening as your relation the journalist who was assassinated in my opinion at the direction of the crown prince of saudi arabia is now the washington post reports the cia has concluded that the saudi crown prince ordered the assassination of journalist jamal khashoggi this it says according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity. the report says in reaching its conclusions the cia examined multiple sources of intelligence
9:04 pm
including a phone call that the crown prince's brother an ambassador to the u.s. had with the journalist before his murder khaled bin solomon was quick to deny the allegation saying on twitter i never talk to him by phone and certainly never suggested he go to turkey for any reason i asked the u.s. government to release any information regarding this claim. within hours several of the news organizations including the new york times and the wall street journal well also quoting anonymous officials confirming the report of the cia's finding. it is very important it's very significant. what the washington post new york times . c n b c n n other outlets over the last hours. reported that the cia in turn an assessment now is pointing straight years.
9:05 pm
in so much as having ordered this operation this has never happened before in the cia will probably will not comment on this kind of report however the washington post wouldn't report this unless they were accurately reporting where they believe the cia said so which is a slight nuance now one can anticipate that the congressional oversight committees will have been briefed or demand to be briefed on this the reports alleging muhammad have been solomon's involvement unlikely to field even though the congressional demands that punitive measures be taken against the crown prince and his government mike hanna al-jazeera washington more with rosalyn jordan now who's following this from washington d.c. let's split this into two bits what runs first the issue of donald trump and saudi arabia this relationship which as we say from those comments only
9:06 pm
a few hours ago he is desperate to preserve. welcome all this because the u.s. and saudi arabia have a very close economic relationship based on the fact that the u.s. imports about ten percent of its annual petroleum usage from saudi arabia there's also a long running of military relationship in which the u.s. a provides military aid in the form of weapons and aircraft and training to the saudis and of course doing so in turn creates jobs for a u.s. persons there's also the foreign policy aspect which hasn't received as much attention in recent days but the u.s. is very much accounting on its relationship with saudi arabia which wants to be the preeminent leader in the middle east to what basically crowd out iran to stop that country not just from developing
9:07 pm
a nuclear weapons program but also from expanding its influence in other countries around the middle east if there's not a strong saudi arabia a which the u.s. can rely the trabant ministrations efforts to contain iran will be that much more difficult so there are a lot of reasons why the president would not want to just cut off relations with saudi arabia or more particularly with the crown prince mohammed bin solomon because the assumption widely shared here in washington is that a less something really unusual happens then solomon could be the king of saudi arabia for fifty years if not more and so the idea of preserving that long term potential relationship is really one of the big reasons why the u.s. has not just simply moved in and said this is what happened to jamal khashoggi and we believe these are the people who are responsible but now with the cia report indicating that it was mohamed bin solomon who came up with the plan and ordered
9:08 pm
his subordinates to carry out the plan it's going to be that much more difficult for donald trump to stick by him and then there is the president's relationship with his own intelligence community which shouldn't be an issue and yet it is when it comes to donald trump. it is an issue because we're going back to something that predated the president's actually our winning the election in two thousand and sixteen the allegations that russia was trying to interfere with the two thousand and sixteen campaign and that it may have had some sort of relationship with persons inside allah trumps presidential campaign in order to basically disrupt the electoral process in this country that has been become the focus of a number investor of investigations the intelligence community rather early on in two thousand and seventeen concluded that there had been meddling by russian
9:09 pm
operatives up perhaps directed by persons with links to the kremlin and that they certainly did have some sort of interaction with persons on the president's election campaign team and so the president has always been very very angry about this he has wasted no opportunity to undermine the credibility or to balloon old the performance and professionalism of the u.s. intelligence community but it's sort of difficult to dismiss what's being said when it appears the cia has made it plain through the major newspapers of this country that it has done its own work and that they believe that there is no way that this could have happened without the involvement of mohammed bin solomon that is roselyn jordan keeping us up to date from washington d.c. thank you we've also got tony berkeley he's at the saudi confidence temple with more on developments in the investigation there. but this steady trickle of
9:10 pm
revelations and information coming out from turkey. it's interesting that trump is talking about jobs here they're talking about justice and the cia revelation is something that very much in dorsey's what the turkish government has said almost from day one and this was a premeditated murder they pointed the finger of suspicion quite early at the crown saudi crown prince and this really affirms that what they've been saying is correct because this was far from what the saudis claim a and that hoc killing on the spur of the moment this was a meticulously planned operation to kill an opponent of the saudi stablish ment's so it's reaffirm what they've said the latest information that's been coming out now to is concerning how he was killed either by a rope or a a plastic bag over his head the newspaper which has been the source of a lot of the turkish government leaks said that mr casady was injured in injected with a coagulant and this is suppose that this was because to stop the flow of blood so
9:11 pm
when his body was dismembered would be less traces of his d.n.a. and there's been a joint saudi and turkish investigation into the killing no d.n.a. traces were found either at the saudi consulate way he was killed or at the consulate general house so they did a pretty good job of cleaning up but this report reaffirms what the turkish government said but what does that mean at the end of the day because as tom says jobs are important but justice here is something they think is very important also . right what style of thinking of romney who is a journalism professor at the american university of beirut a friend of jamal khashoggi as well he's on skype from boston today hi rami so as i was saying to roslyn jordan little bit early yeah if we just look at the intelligence side of things first of all this shouldn't be an issue a president should believe his or her intelligence community and yet that may be the sticking point here right that don't trump doesn't want to take him at they would or take this particular would this really several issues and that's one of
9:12 pm
them the relationship between trump and his various security agencies has been quite rocky the second one is the relationship between the united states and saudi arabia as a long term strategic relationship and the third one is the personal relationship between trump and miss some of the larger question are and who have been so many and which other members of the family which presumably has some private business implications as many of trump's reversions do so there's three or four different dimensions to this but the idea the fact that the cia released this and leaked this information to several american news a news updates is quite astounding because officially goes against what the president and of secretary of state and defense minister of been saying and it goes against the general way to do things in washington which you don't have the cia leaking stuff to contradict your president. most people will probably believe what
9:13 pm
the cia has come to and not the saudis if for no other reason than the saudi story has changed so many times in the past four or five weeks if that is the case and donald trump decides no i'm going to stay and support my allies in saudi arabia what kind of effect could that have gone on and his credibility on the relationship between the countries. it depends on what the congress does it depends on what reaction you get from the private sector business people in the us and it depends on what reaction we get from governments all over the world if the evidence is. given out to the public and clearly shows that comment been some man and now his brother allegedly were bunked on this or even planned it this means that you have premeditated assassins running saudi policy if that's the case then i think most governments around the world except a few that depend on saudi money to stay solvent most honorable governments around
9:14 pm
the world will have nothing to do with them and will start taking political military economic military not attacking but you know defense contracts and stuff like that people want to distance themselves from premeditated assassins running saudi arabia if that is proven to be the case which isn't quite clear yet but it seems to be moving in that direction so there are huge huge implications for what could happen and the congress is the place to look right now i would say because they're starting to come up with legislation to they've already come up with a bill against marbury defense relations and maybe now with saudi arabia this is not only because the savage nature of this crime the barbaric nature and also because the saudi government has repeatedly and continues to come up with new stories so they're clearly not telling the truth they're not only lying but they're also incompetent which is another problem but the bigger problem here is that there is concern that if so do you rebiya which is the central pillar of american policy
9:15 pm
in the at least these a b. iran or israel palestine fighting terrorism maintaining the top prosy of that central pillar of american policy proved to be a criminal group then this is going to create huge ethical and political problems for the united states around the world and you might end up seeing the united. states and saudi arabia and princes israel which has told us you should leave them some man alone let him be so he'll tell you don't find the us isolated with these other groups countries like saudi arabia israel and one or two others that may be very isolated in the world so this is a potentially momentous moment we'll just have to wait and see what the actual political and practical reactions are ok rami khouri always a pleasure thank you. just before we tell you what's coming up on this news just heard from the travel pool report that is the journalist traveling with donald
9:16 pm
trump on board air force one that just sent out a report saying that sarah sanders the spokeswoman for the white house did speak to journalists on the plane said that president tried to had spoken with sectors. and the cia director. the flight however she referred questions about that to a statement that she said the state department will be sending out soon so we have to keep an eye out for that official word coming from the state department about the u.s. position on the jamal khashoggi case now that this new information has come out about the cia's we'll keep an eye on that one right here is what we've got coming up for you on this news. just like to go. you know more and more children dying but now maybe a glimmer of hope that yemen's warring parties will sit down and talk to powerful nations still at odds china in the u.s. their differences at the apec summit. and in sport jimmy butler makes an immediate impact for philadelphia on his home debut action from the n.b.a.
9:17 pm
this coming. the number of people reported missing from the wildfires in northern california is now more than a thousand the remains of eight more victims have been found taking the number of official dead to seventy one more than fifty two thousand people have been displaced and as we've been reporting president donald trump has just arrived in california for a firsthand look at the fires which he had blamed previously on forest mismanagement. we have a lot of things to talk about we will be talking about bars about a bit i've been saying that for a long time and. it's going to be a lot different situation but. the one thing is that everybody now knows that this is what we have to be doing and there's no right about should have been done many years ago. but i think everybody on the right side the big issue
9:18 pm
the big issue is very expensive issue but very very expensive when you compare you even to one of these horrible fires. kristen salome is in chico california hi kristen before we get into any of the wider issues what you just bring us up to date with what you've been seeing on the ground there all. yeah you know i've been seeing a lot of traumatized people. forty thousand people now are still under evacuation orders they had to leave their homes under truly terrifying situations many driving out with the flames on the sides of the roadways not knowing if they are going to make it. many of them have ended up in places like where i am right now i'm actually next to a wal-mart parking lot where people have set up camp to wait until they can either go home many of them they have no homes to return to now they estimate more than twelve thousand structures have been destroyed and some.
9:19 pm
you know twelve more than twelve thousand structures have been destroyed and the entire town of paradise has been completely leveled so it's a very traumatic situation here and when people hear comments from the president focusing on the blame game and how this all happened and where it started there's a lot of frustration one fire official said that it just caused more frustration from people who are basically living day to day and don't know what's coming next or how they're going to survive where they're going to go where they're going to live and one local representative pointed out that after president talked about land management in this area being a problem and sort of focusing on california officials that ninety eight percent of forest land here in california is actually controlled by the federal government and the trumpet ministration has cut money for that land management so really a lot of frustration a lot of uncertainty and
9:20 pm
a lot of concern among very traumatized population and people extraordinary thank you for that update kristen salumi in chico california so as we said the official number of dead is that seventy one the number of missing over a foul of the not that's not to say that all of those people are dead there is talk of it being duped. names on that list but it does raise the question about identifying remains when and if more of those people are confirmed dead now we're going to talk to men and he said he about the things the forensic anthropologist a professor in the forensic science program at george mason university joining us from fairfax virginia on skype and we thank you for your time today because this is a well as you said we don't know what the numbers will be in the end but the job of all of identifying remains i mean i can even well you tell us where do you even start in a situation like this when clearly the fines just been so intense well in this
9:21 pm
particular situation we're dealing with i'm assuming primarily burned remains and so. it is that creates a tremendous amount of difficulty in terms of the identification process which will include the recovery of those remains from an area that is so quite dangerous for the recovery teams so once the bodies were brought to a mortuary situation and not be the end of the process where. you know photography x. ray these kinds of documentation. procedures will will will occur with the goal of creating you know bio graphical. profile of that individual you know how old were they what was their steps you know ancestry house all were that and that it will want to look for things that are
9:22 pm
unique about that person who will look at dental structure well look at the skeletal system see what they can sell us as far as any trauma but it may occur during life for any implants in the body kinds of things that would distinguish. one individual from the other and i guess they would be situations where when circumstances where identity is not possible at all or identifying remains is not possible again i'm just thinking about the scale of these five the intensity of that hate and what it can do to the human body. well it can be quite destructive and one of the lessons that we learned from the world trade center where we had a tremendous amount of heat in the general area is that. since sand the technology has increased dramatically in terms of d.n.a. process and he and the various asked. the biologist can bring towards extracting information from. parts of the body that are so dearly damage this past
9:23 pm
august they continue to make identifications from that time seventeen years after the fact. similar here i have to believe that the technology they're going to be able to bring to bear. i'm not going to say it's going to be easy but it'll certainly be easy here are that it has and so you said you worked on the twin towers in two thousand and one i believe you also worked in haiti after the earthquake in twenty ten as is your expertise been cold on again here or colleagues of yours i mean how how big an operation is it. no i've not been asked many of my colleagues many of the answer all of you certainly. we've just heard from chico state university there are several forensic anthropologists nine understand i have a team of. anthropologists going through. you know the rubble if you will and
9:24 pm
trying to recover as much human bones. anthony it's a really grim thing to talk about but i think it was important and i'm glad you could join us to do that thank you you're welcome now a missing argentine submarine which disappeared last year with forty four crew on board has been found on the seabed a us under three mapping company made the discovery in the south atlantic a year after the san juans disappearance the argentine navy confirmed that the submarine imploded and debris is scattered over a wide area the latest now with to raise a boat she is live from buenos aires with us to raise the you went to a news conference a little bit earlier with the defense ministry what do they say they're. when it's a day filled with lots of questioning lots of emotion lots of anger too in argentina we went to that press conference where the minister of defense and other
9:25 pm
members of the navy explained what they found on they said they found the submarine showed some pictures a submarine is located at a deaf about nine hundred meters out of off about five hundred kilometers away of the argentine coast the pictures that they have just yet are not of the better quality because of the turbulence of the water in that area and also because of the salt which makes it more much more complicated they say that the hot looks damaged and as if an implosion had happened which is in the beginning of the office show the official version of what happened to the submarine was saying also that i was the minister of defense here said that what's very very important right now is for an investigation to begin. maybe whom the president specifically told me we had to find the submarine and find the truth and pursue justice this is the stage we found the submarine and we need to
9:26 pm
stablish what the causes are if people were responsible for this they should be held accountable. the search and extraction of the submarine will depend on the. defense minister also said to evacuate it was very very difficult for argentina to attempt any type of extraction because it does not have the resources that you also said that the government would be announcing a day of mourning soon. we saw some pictures a little bit earlier of some of the relatives and loved ones of the crew i mean obviously the grief or kind of begin to imagine what it's like have you spoken to any of them. well yes we have been in touch with many of them over this past year we have spoken to them today there is mixed feelings among many of them some say that they are relieved at least that they have been felt the submarine has been found but others are very very angry they want to know why was it that
9:27 pm
initially water entered the battery the snorkel area where the batteries are which is what sparked that first fire that cost eventually an explosion but let me read to you i just received a message from one of the fathers who is just traveling right now with us ships that there and that message he said when everybody told us to give up we didn't we continue searching for them they'll be time for technical talks and other more important things but right now is that we found them and we cannot stop crying that's the message that we got from the south atlantic and that's the feeling i'm on many of those who are trying to find and try to find to find out what happened to their loved ones ok tourism board without up it from going to stories thank you . here's what's coming up for you on this new thousand the u.n. faces increasing pressure to keep the peace in mali and to win the trust of the people and getting heat from all sides the honeymoon looks like it's all over for colombia's president one hundred days after taking office. and sport is back in the

9:32 pm
roadblocks and demonstrations against the rising cost of fuel since the start of the year petrol prices have gone up as much as twenty percent the government added so-called green taxes to try to lower air pollution as part of its environmental policy but the protesters say they are unfairly punished people who need cars move back are reporting from paris now. they are the sights and sounds of protest in the heart of the french capital there have been many demonstrations during president micron's leadership as he tries to introduce a raft of economic reforms but this new round of protests is different. around two hundred fifty thousand demonstrators took to the streets and more than two thousand protests nationwide this was bordeaux whose main square. it began as a grassroots movement called the yellow vests
9:33 pm
a backlash against tax increases on petrol and diesel the movement's now gathering momentum. in northern france near cali they blocked roads as well as access to fuel depots paralyzing transport routes as a blockade in southeast from a driver accidentally hit and killed a woman demonstrator by simple complete diligently i'm wearing these yellow vests for a simple reason there are too many taxes in this fuel tax we simply cannot turn around we just keep getting taxed by michael and me getting nothing back here in central paris there have been several pockets of protests emerging in different parts of the city similar tenuously such as here at the arc de triomphe they've also been thorough somewhat valiant attempts to blockade the roads although here where people are doing is stopping cars to see exactly what people support what they're trying to do here is a difficult challenge for president emanuel macron on the one hand the house to show that he is allowing people the democratic right demonstrations like this at
9:34 pm
the same time standing firm on his policies. earlier in the week mccrum said he wanted to reconcile the french people with its leaders the government insists the price hikes and necessary to help reduce carbon emissions has offered some financial incentives to encourage people to buy electric cars but demonstrators say tank says should be imposed on big polluters like heavy industries not ordinary drivers but crumbs popularity has been falling in recent months he can't afford to see it slide any further leave barca al-jazeera paris. now the mayor of the mexican border city of harness says he expects the influx of central american asylum seekers to last at least six months the city's now opened a sports complex to take up to three thousand people many escaping violence and poverty hoping to seek asylum in the united states the government in mexico their estimates the number of migrants could reach ten thousand. is there in one of
9:35 pm
forests hi heidi tell us what you've been seeing there is the caravan makes its way further north. kemal so the first ways of this migrant caravan have indeed arrived at america's doorsteps and this is what it looks like i'm at the shop or out point of entry into you want to mexico and the u.s. border is just a mere stone's throw it shows for away from there but who are these migrants who have already traveled thousands of kilometers and went most of which on foot to say poverty and violence in their central american countries america still yet so far we're talking about how long it may take for them to have a chance to make an asylum claim that is because u.s. authorities are allowing only a trickle of families a day to pass through these doors today was only about thirty and the migrants who have just arrived two thousand eight hundred in the last few days in the caravan
9:36 pm
they have been self organizing they were lining up along these letters and then putting their names inside this notebook incredibly it's being managed by migrant volunteers themselves who've been handing off the task to whoever is next in line with their own names are four hundred some families are still on that list and the reality is that does not even begin to cover the thousands of more people who are still heading in this direction north on the other caravans that will follow so what this means is that for the next weeks if not months there will be families camped out in tijuana overnight there were children women many who have clogs and are sick with pneumonia who are sleeping in the elements in the cold and that may be their near future for days to come now to my right this group of families are what they count the lucky ones they've already endured
9:37 pm
a month long waits their numbers are nearly up on the list and they tell me they've been waiting here in the morning just hoping that u.s. authorities will communicate that they'll open up the doors once again and perhaps a trickle more of people may enter to make their asylum claims ok thank you for that report card is your kind of story in tijuana. well the need to tackle the unprecedented migration crisis in latin america dominated the summit which. twenty two countries were represented at the american nations. in both nicaragua and venezuela latin america and newman explains. american leaders from mexico central and south america spain and portugal underscored the urgent need to confront an unprecedented way this migration both from and within latin america. we need a migratory framework that guarantees the rights of migrants while allowing receiving countries to obtain benefits through an orderly and regulated migration
9:38 pm
with solidarity as a european i know the enormity of the challenge. in less than four years two to three million business wayland's have poured into neighboring countries. ships. thousands of central americans are also escaping violence and poverty forming migrant caravans and amassing at the mexico u.s. border ahead of next month's un migration conference. i brew american leaders have a message to those who only see migrants as a threat i think that it would be. immigration all. of security and i think that our boys will be boys will be our boys. and development while there was consensus on migration a potential confrontation was averted with nicaragua and venezuela whose leaders are being accused of abuse of power and violation of human rights aware that many
9:39 pm
of their peers would be holding their feet to the fire the two presidents stayed home. as for the goal of regional integration. we must never gate together to achieve unity the impossible is possible it's just more difficult. and it will soon be even more so as latin america's two dardus countries brazil and mexico prepared to swear in new presidents who are on the opposite side of the ideological divide to see in human al-jazeera antiwar what tamala. in colombia taxes on oranges among other things are leading to harsh criticism of president even decay after his first one hundred days in office he is accused of were nagging on his campaign promises and a nationwide strike has been threatened. with his youthful energy in a once healthy majority in congress some expected colombia's new president to have
9:40 pm
an easy start but after one hundred days in office the president has come across decades old challenges the government has campaigned very aggressive for something to be a game changer in the country's history the youngest president the most technocratic and it's gone through a series of roadblocks. campaigned on law and order and boosting the economy under the watchful eye of his political right wing mentor. a hardliner who is as popular as he is polarizing but well as government has not been extreme some of his proposals have been challenged even by his own party the hiding bush. took his approval rating fell from over fifty percent to twenty seven percent in three months as colombians felt betrayed his campaign promises such as you know increasing taxes i knew bill plans to do just that charging new taxes i'm forty
9:41 pm
basic goods including meat eggs and fruits. barely what we need for our daily survival where does he expect us to find the money to pay more taxes. look at all he promised in the campaign and now it's all against the poor when it's the poor that's helped him to get elected. the bill aims to raise four point four billion dollars necessary to finding spending next year but it's lagging in congress as many fear it will negatively impact an already struggling middle class. a number of proposal supported by the president such as the new and take corruption measures among others have of failed showing just how difficult it has been for this administration to pass any meaningful legislation so has not been able to really coalesce around himself his own party. other parties to join him.
9:42 pm
in more challenges that come from the streets students have been protesting for over a month on public universities funding and workers again these ations are threatening a national strike it's a difficult awakening for a president who promised to govern for all in a nation that remains deeply divided about its future ellison the. china's president says world growth is being overshadowed by protectionism speaking at the opening of the apec summit in papua new guinea xi jinping referred to us china trade tensions and called protectionist actions short sighted and doomed to fail so ball. resorting to old practices such as protectionism unilateralism will not resolve problems but also add to the uncertainties to the global economy history tells us taking the road of confrontation whether in the form of a cold war open war or trade war will produce no win it the iraqi president met his iranian counterpart her son rouhani during
9:43 pm
