unconstitutional but when we managed to catch a few words with the first time he's spoken since his appointment each old us he was confident. if your of a loved one legitimately think services it's at odds with the institution of this budget the argument is that holland should be deciding who's the prime minister not the norm or the norm as i read the institution in your reply and so your immediate plans for a now you're assuming the promises position i feel ugly ignore the of these don't look in your immediate plans though so what what are your immediate plans what you plan to do let's be able to meet them you want to meet on the sixteenth opposite. of that i solicit how would you get enough support from politics how would you get the n.p.c. what we have already got that i didn't thirty. and so why the delay in recalling parliament what are we hanging on for because we want to. get ready for the i did
11:03 am
he seems confident that he can get the majority in parliament byrd but his appointment is a controversial one. he's confident yes but it is controversial because just two kilometers down the road but way is temple trees the official residence of prime minister and then there is ronald. refusing to leave because he says he is the legitimate prime minister and he says this because the constitution here was changed a couple of years ago taking power from the executive president and giving it to parliament so the prime minister is supposed to hold supports a parliament but the president went beyond that in sacking. and the president says that he was able to do this constitutionally but the point is the spirit of the constitution was to give parliament more power in the president's accused of going against that and suspending parliament says that the suspicions being back is parliament. gives rajapaksa enough time to gather the votes he needs when
11:04 am
parliament is eventually recalled next week if he is recalled next week and he's got the votes you need he needs rajapaksa will get away with it and he will be he will be able to solidify his position as prime minister during. giving us the update from colombo thank you. now turkey has officially revealed the gruesome details of what exactly happened to the saudi journalist and critic. turkey's chief prosecutor says he was strangled to death as soon as he entered the saudi consulate in istanbul on the second of october saudi arabia has yet to respond to the revelations are somehow better has the latest. as the saudi chief prosecutor was on his way to travel back to his country his turkish counterpart released a statement detailing his final moments of assad to counsel eight.
11:05 am
according to the horrifying account. was strangled to death as soon as he got into the consulate on the second of october his body dismembered and the blast remains shrouded in mystery. turkish investigators are still trying to find out what happened to the remains of his shock to see who gave the order to kill him and the identity of the local corporator tasked with disposing of the body their fans and turkey's chief prosecutor also sat his counterparts. wasn't fully cooperating turkey blames saudi arabia for stalling the investigation. this is not an event that can be done without an order from a high level the organization of this event has been premeditated that the saudi
11:06 am
chief prosecutor stated and it has been done in such a brutal way as declared by our own chief prosecutor as well he was killed as soon as he entered and was later dismembered you know how far in advance has its brutal his 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 you know. 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 selman had no knowledge of g.'s fate turkey seems determined to press ahead with his own investigation the wording of the general prosecutor's statements is just officials here are confident they have enough strong evidence about what happened. to the sergeant consulate in istanbul about a month ago about al-jazeera is somebody is in
11:07 am
a hurry that is joining us from istanbul so the turks are now officially saying is in our how he was killed but the question still remains where his body. yes the question which saudi arabia has still not answered where is the body parts should we say of she because according to istanbul's chief prosecutor she's body was cut into pieces the first time users like you mention details of the murder being disclosed by an official on the record and not just any official the man who is leading this investigation and the timing of the revelations of course is significant just as saudi arabia's top prosecutor was leaving bull after a two day visit which really the outcome there is no tangible outcome even the prosecutor himself saying those meetings were not full we know that turkish officials are growing increasingly frustrated with saudi arabia they have accused
11:08 am
them in the past of delaying the investigation slowing down the process but clearly those revelations a sign of frustration on the part of turkey saudi arabia according to them came not to cooperate with the investigation instead they came to try to find out what evidence turkey has because saudi arabia of course was put in the corner because of those leaks to the media they have to acknowledge that she was killed inside the consulate but what turkey wants them to admit is where is the body or the body parts and who ordered the killing we heard the act party spokesperson the spokesperson of the ruling party say yesterday that you know we demand to know where the body is and we do not believe that this murder was carried out just by a rogue agent said there was an order given from the higher up. one turkish officials be heading to saudi arabia next to cooperate in the ongoing investigation
11:09 am
that's being carried out there what are the next steps. well we haven't heard from the turkish prosecutor the istanbul chief prosecutor and whether or not he's going to heed that invitation but yesterday the saudi top prosecutor invited him to join the investigation and saudi arabia turkey is put in a very difficult position because if it refuses to go then it will show non cooperation on its part and maybe that is what saudi arabia wants to do and if it you know it does go to the top prosecutor visits saudi arabia it could be a showcase to show that you know this cooperated when turkey clearly believes they are not so turkey we still do not know whether or not they are going to go to saudi arabia but what turkey wants is those eighteen suspects to be extradited so that they can face trial here something that riyadh has dismissed all together clearly this situation we are going to expect further escalation because we heard president
11:10 am
there gone say a few days ago that we have more evidence and we're going to use it at the right time is now the right time when saudi arabia really refusing to take this investigation further ok zain where the thank you divers in indonesia have found one of the two block box recorders from a plane that crashed on monday investigators say the flight data recorder. while the search they found the flight data recorder while the search does continue for the cockpit voice recorder the lion air boeing seven three seven crashed only minutes after takeoff from the capital jakarta killing all one hundred eighty nine people on board florence louie has the latest from kuala lumpur. now we know so far that the pilot had asked to turn back shortly after takeoff the plane crashed about twelve minutes into its flight and that the very same plane had experienced a technical problem the day before but lyon and said this technical problem was fully resolved and the plane was cleared to fly from bali to jakarta on sunday

11:23 am
the world knew little about. now she's a household name while other leaders have come and gone i'm going to merkel has stayed put here at the chancellery becoming a symbol of stability not just in her own country but internationally too even though her policies have been blamed for turn. some voters against the european union. merkel was instrumental in bailing out greece from twenty ten onwards as the financial crisis spread but the austerity measures imposed on the greeks increased anti e.u. hostility in many countries then as russia asserted itself on the world stage notably by sending troops to help separatists in ukraine and onyx in crimea in twenty four t.n. merkel was blunt. nothing justifies excuses the annexation of crimea by russia. when in twenty fifteen merkel unexpectedly allowed hundreds of thousands of migrants to settle in germany even as some countries were moving to keep them out the rest of the e.u. applauded her gesture then refused to do likewise and so in three short years her
11:24 am
all thought he's been chipped away as the anti immigrant a.f.d. party gain support a ruling coalition with the center left s.p.d. has never been more unpopular leaving merkel even less invested in e.u. reforms which french president emmanuel mcclung has floated i think for the time being she's trying to avoid any other crisis and maybe pave the way for someone to succeed who would then maybe with mark or together can get to the next stage but i don't see her actually being the one next to lead to invest much in the next three years to really make a push next year they'll be european parliament elections across the continent the big unknown is whether they'll be early general elections in germany if there are things could change for everyone just like the conservative voters are maybe banning that to go to the f.d.a. we're talking about the. voters going to the greens and should the greens be strong
11:25 am
enough for example at any potential new elections that happened before within the actual cycle. then you might even see a more. european face of germany. for now angela merkel is focusing on domestic issues and denying she has ambitions for a job in brussels if and when she's no longer chancellor the dean barber al jazeera . the u.s. accused of killing eleven jewish worshipers in a synagogue is due in court to face forty four charges as more funerals are held in pittsburgh robert bowers is accused of multiple murders hate crimes firearms offenses and obstructing the practice of religion. well australia is the new home for dozens of child asylum seekers who are being quietly moved from controversial so-called prison islands in the pacific ocean doctors are concerned for their mental health after spending up to five years with thousands of adults refugees on
11:26 am
the islands of now ruined man it's andrew thomas has more from melbourne the consistent message of australia's government is that all refugees who tried to come to its shores by boat would instead be sent to man asylum to papa new guinea or to number who they would never be settled here but we now know that quietly australian government has been bringing refugees here but securely in recent days and weeks children who were on the road the pressure has really been growing on the government for all thoughts of politics and peace in their own governing liberal party m.p.'s in the opposition labor party and public opinion polls now suggest that eighty percent of australians want the children brought to australia we now know that they are being brought here there are forty children as of friday still on the road to a fifty to a week ago more than a hundred when the current prime minister scott morrison came to office in august and in an interview in london a full minister has said that it is the aim of the australian government to have all the children transferred off the roof by the end of the year so despite
11:27 am
a lack of comment by australia's government despite all its talk about needing to maintain the terence for people trying to come to australia chilled by boat in fact the children and their families are being brought here. refugee help groups welcome the evacuation of children to australia so government ministers maintain their offshore account policy is correct and we certainly and any circumstances don't want to start again that is just unimaginable fourteen hundred deaths at sea if we are not going to stand for that but we continue to do the work to make sure those kids treated fairly and humanely and of course we're near down to a very small number of money for the thirty eight children who woke up on narrow this morning two months is a long time. doctors have consistently said that this is a mental health crisis and they have warned the government to get these children off urgently. scientists in switzerland have developed an electronic implant that's
11:28 am
not only helping paraplegics walk again but could also repair their damaged spinal cords it's providing hope for patients years after their accidents alexy o'brien reports. he had been told he would never walk again. sebastiaan to was paralyzed from the waist down after a bicycle accident five years ago but now thanks to breakthrough technology he's taking tentative steps forward so basically no ability to activate single muscles of both legs but we said that the model competes for. and nor with some training he's able to really. like for example a extension of his leg so basically you recover a lot of control over the body lice muscles despite no more than four years of complete paralysis it's all down to a tiny electronic implant placed over the damaged area of the spinal cord it helps
11:29 am
boost signals from the brain to his legs giving sebastiaan back some control over his paralyzed limbs and an addict and antibiotics and it's not easy and has taken months of rehabilitation but it's life changing progress they treat patients involved in the study he idea that you are repairing the injured spine or go so we don't know the mechanism but many many more that is we have clearly seen that we destabilized training and nerve fiber still to be growing we are going to easy that's why the brain regained control over the movement of the leg the first such implant was developed in twenty ten and earlier this year to other groups of scientists reported similar success but this research goes one step further targeting. alec tronic pulses to specific locations yeah yeah dreams that it's really like. like running
11:30 am
a marathon and holding eggs in your hands and you trying not to squeeze them and at the same time you're pushing as hard as you can so you really need to find a good balance of pushing hard and trying to get each and every muscle at the right timing in the right place the three main still mostly rely on wheelchairs and the scientists are warning the treatment won't work for the most severe injuries so room for improvement maybe but definitely room for hope alexia brian al-jazeera. hello again the headlines on al-jazeera know the appointed prime minister mahinda rajapaksa household al jazeera his appointment is legitimate the island is embroiled in a political crisis after his predecessor was dismissed last week parliament is likely to be recalled on monday for the pocks us as he has the support of the
11:31 am
majority of m.p.'s sure of not one but just a few things yes it's all the institutions. but the argument is that policy should be deciding who is the prime minister not normally. read the institution in the right and so your immediate plans for a now you are assuming the prime minister's position i feel lucky to be given the order of the book and your immediate plans though so what was your immediate plans what you plan to do next do you have a meeting you want to meet on the street after that in the. next else or how will you get enough support from politics how would you get the n.p.t. we have already got the hundred thirty. and so why the delay in recalling pollen and what are we hanging on for because we want to. get ready for the i did. turkey's chief prosecutor says so the journalist. was strangled to death as soon as
