8:03 am
advantage been violent and who gave the order we are in a position to see this clearly from the start we haven't accused anyone but we will not allow a cover up it will not human. saudi officials initially denied the outspoken journalist was killed but backtracked and international pressure admitting it was pre-meditated the kingdom insists crown prince mohammed bin cell man had no knowledge of g.'s fate turkey seems determined to press ahead with his own investigation the wording of the general prosecutor's statement suggests officials here are confident they have enough strong evidence about what happened. and to the subject consulate in istanbul about a month ago. is simple we have two correspondents following this story for us mike hanna is in washington d.c. with the latest from the trumpet ministration but first let's go live to istanbul
8:04 am
and a series alan fischer is there so on and some grim details about how shocked she died have emerged what are we to make though about the timing of their release by turkey . well it certainly wasn't coincidental they released it as the chief prosecutor from saudi arabia was about to leave the country it seems that was a statement from turkey to see they were unhappy with the cooperation they were receiving from saudi arabia saudi arabia has from the stars said that they were going to cooperate with the turkish authorities that it would be an open and transparent investigation that is a pledge that the king and also the crown prince mohammed bin salman made to donald trump and also made to president but after two days in istanbul the turks were feeling that the chief prosecutor wasn't entirely forthcoming need to push to get statements from the thousand people that are currently being held in saudi arabia in connection with the charges on both days so you connection with the death of
8:05 am
jamal khashoggi and on both days that when the chief prosecutor met with his turkish counterpart here in istanbul he was asked the same questions and answers there were none the questions where where is the body of jamal khashoggi what did you do with it if it was dismembered are we looking for body parts or are we looking for just one body where was it disposed if you use someone a local cooperative as you've described them who was it where can we find them where can we speak to and the third question of course the key question who ordered the death of jamal khashoggi just how far up the chain does it go the turks have been frustrated with for a while just get to what give one example of that they want to reexamine the garden of the console general residence it's not far from here it's less than a five minute walk and they know that members of the so-called hit team when they're after jamal khashoggi was killed so they want to look at again at the
8:06 am
garden but the saudis haven't given approval even though that requests were in a number of days ago and that is the level of frustration that the turks have they want to find out what happened to the body if it's been disposed of how it was disposed of where it was disposed of and most crucially they want to find out who ordered the death of the right to. many thanks u.s. president donald trump s for the first time in days spoken about the and shogi murder investigation of who lived out of mike hanna who's in washington d.c. mike tell us more about what the president had to say was the first time the president has spoken in days that essentially he was asked a question did he feel betrayed by the saudis version of events of the murder of a he said no i don't feel betrayed maybe the saudis have betrayed themselves but once again he's continuing to insist that the investigation is ongoing that he will wait to that he will try and decide what to do next when all the information has
8:07 am
been made public but the point is is that a week ago president trump had a meeting with his director of the cia with his secretary of state these he said were critical meetings to gather all the information they had gleaned the cia director from turkey the secretary of state to travel to riyadh and held meetings with the saudi leadership but a week later still no decision taken on what action is going to be taken it's not quite clear what information president trump is waiting for or who's reporting is waiting for before taking a decision on what to do next as details of cheese death have emerged over the weeks we've seen congress questioning saudi arabia's changing account there's been talk of congress putting sanctions in place against saudi arabia with this wait and see approach from the administration are we likely to see any action taken against saudi arabia. well in the course of the day you've had more action coming out of
8:08 am
congress a group of republican senators asking the president to suspend its civilian nuclear negotiations with saudi arabia this is been going on for weeks congress is absolutely appalled it's a bipartisan issue there's been a letter from the u.s. senate a formal letter invoking the magnitsky act which basically forces the president to conduct the investigation and then impose sanctions should accountability be established this was followed up by a letter from the house of representatives a bipartisan letter saying that the four months that mcginn ski gives the president should act should be waived that the decision on the investigation should be taken as soon as possible so there's been absolute fury in congress the problem is congress has been in recess for these midterm elections there has not been the ability to be able to pass any legislation imposing sanctions but when congress returns after the midterm elections regardless of the result president trump is
8:09 am
going to be coming under even more pressure he is going to be faced with the possibility of congress passing legislation if he does not take some kind of action himself like many things of zeus my account of the live in washington with jeff stacey's a former state department official who served in the obama and been the story he says that an international investigation into jamal she's death is looking more of a possibility. the international community probably would do something with the international court of justice potentially and this would be something of course resisted by the saudis and possibly also by the americans but the turks might find themselves actually able to present additional evidence to cooperate their investigation so far and in terms of how the turks have done out of this they've played their cards fairly skillfully and this is allowed them to if you will take down their regional rival
8:10 am
a bit and restore some more positive relations with the west in the process we don't really know in terms of palace intrigue what is happening but we expect that in riyadh they're looking to minimize any changes from this point forward they've been in damage control mode a little more successfully of late but since terms of the relationship u.s. and saudi are trying to keep things on a fairly even keel but we're seeing some changes with regard to yemen in we'll probably see a few more that the saudis no doubt have been warned in advance so in that effect the two countries are remaining staunchly close going forward from here and we expect that to remain the case divers in indonesia found the black box flight recorder of the passenger airliner which crashed there on monday a transport ministry spokesman confirmed that the flight recorder was recovered in the sea off the coast of jakarta the line airplane crashed only minutes off the
8:11 am
takeoff on monday killing all one hundred eighty nine people on board investigators hope that the black box data recorder will help explain why the two month old aircraft went down let's go live now to al-jazeera florence louis who's following the story from kuala lumpur florence what's the transport ministry been saying. well the transport ministry. the this was first reported by the this was first reported by indonesia broadcaster who had said that they saw divers taking up a box and the transferring that onto a boat and they had interviewed one of the divers who said that an orange box was recovered and that it with intact now and we're not sure yet whether this is the flight data recorder the cockpit voice recorder both are crucial for the investigation now if this is the flight data recorder then this will contain information about everything that the plane was doing from its speed to the alter

seven years at least is just indicative of the vast majority the world really be in favor of a normalization of pro gauger in policy between the united states and cuba as well as the majority of the american population including the cuban merican population and the vast majority of people in the island so really the only reason we still have an embargo in the united states against cuba is because they want to placate a handful of hardliners in the u.s. congress peru's opposition leader has been ordered back to jail over money laundering allegations. has been under investigation over accusations that she accepted more than a million dollars from the brazilian construction projects during the two thousand and eleven presidential election campaign fujimori the daughter of the former president alberto fujimori denies any wrongdoing u.s. national security adviser john bolton says that washington doesn't want its friends and allies to be hurt by its sanctions against iran they'll come into force on
