russian election meddling. the u.k. prime minister appoint tough secretary in to me is it faces a fight to keep or angel. police are called to sri lanka's parliament just proceedings over the disputed prime minister descend into chaos for a second day. so that a major turkish newspaper says there's more evidence that contradicts saudi arabia's explanation over the death of journalist. reports that turkey possesses another recording related to the killing in which a fifteen member team allegedly discusses how to murder before he stepped into the saudi consulate in istanbul and that suggests the murder was premeditated directly contradicting the saudi prosecutor's statement on those suspected of being behind.
10:02 pm
kitty just twenty four hours ago he said the generalist died when an attempt to take him to saudi arabia went wrong meanwhile muslims around the world have been remembering jamal khashoggi at friday prayers memorials were held in turkey in the united kingdom in indonesia and in saudi arabia under simmons' reports now from istanbul forty five days of the jamal khashoggi is murder they come to pray with a grief that permeates a gray rainy day. abound all the more poignant because of the empty space of the most solid stone here where a coffin should rest one of kushal jews friends set the tone of the day after this prayer we are going to look for. justice not anger. deep grief but we are looking call this tinsley justice for. another friend
10:03 pm
expressed similar sentiment the bottom of the gun bust into this was a barbaric act committed in the twenty first century this wasn't just the murder expressions of anguish of regret and the quest for justice amongst it all more revelations from a turkish media about the last moments of jamal khashoggi his life events that dispute the saudi account of what happened. took his harriet newspaper says a so far on heard of odia recording disproves the saudi assertion that jews murder was not planned the newspaper says the team can be heard discussing how to kill him the audio powerfully contradicts the latest version of events from the saudis who are only twenty four hours ago said he died after being injected with a large dose of sedative following
10:04 pm
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 he was 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 was 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 jesus loved ones who maintain privacy on this day maybe some level of comfort
10:05 pm
spiritually but closure seems a long distance away and drew simmons al-jazeera is tumble well let's speak now to our correspondent tony burley whose life was entirely tell us more about this new audi a recording that's come to light. well it came from the area newspaper which has had very close tabs its finger on the pulse on this story the leaks we imagine a coming directly from the turkish government they haven't denied these leaks were wrong we can imagine that they are right and basically if you look at the last few weeks everything that's been leaked has been turned out it's turned out to be true and all the denials in the from the saudis for example have proved to be false but this one is quite damning because it does show that if true that this murder was premeditated contrary to what the saudis have been saying all the way along it's a fifteen minute recording and it's rick recorded shortly wasicka saudi went into
10:06 pm
the saudi consulate behind me. here you discuss you hear them discussing the ways they're going to kill the saudi and what everyone's role in that killing was going to be when you add that together with other bits of evidence they've been coming out in the last couple of days you know a pretty strong case of suspicion against pretty high ranking people in saudi arabia for example on the morning before mr casady was because he was killed members of the saudi consul went to buy black suitcases from the grumbles are here in istanbul those were later seen coming out of the consulate after mr saudi was killed the it was a strong suspicion that his body parts were in those suitcases also after he was killed was a phone call recording we are told to saudi arabia the message was tell your boss the the deed has been done now the question is who is the boss there's a strong finger of suspicion pointing at the crown prince mohammed bin solomon the saudis maintain that's not true their investigation they say exonerate him there
10:07 pm
are twenty one people implicated in the murder five of them they're calling for the death penalty but we don't have any names we don't have any charges and they're refusing any kind of move to extradite them to turkey to stand trial meanwhile the turks want an independent investigation perhaps done by the united nations so they can prove conclusively whatever the evidence is and that's not open for dispute but at the moment it's all questions and no answers and meanwhile attorney present been held around the world. yes i think this this this is shocked a lot of people especially the islamic community i think because there's no closure as andrew was saying in his story. this this is nobody and that's that's a sin the people who did this no that's a sin they carried this out for whatever reason because it was a dissident but people here saw him because all jews one of their own he was marrying a turkish lady he was going to have
10:08 pm
a house here in istanbul he was basically moving here and setting up home so it hits home and also the turkish government feels very concerned about what's happened in its country so it's hit everyone very hard it's a brutal killing almost unbelievable our attorney leave it there for the moment that speech from istanbul turkey but the reporting the coalition says it's ordered a pause in the offensive against who the rebels in yemen's main port city of her data but who thier fishel is in the city say coalition air strikes are still continuing with six civilians killed on friday how to do is in djibouti. whole feel fishelson for the dot com farm up fighting has resumed in the city they are calling us. by the sodium erotic correlation nothing short of a tactic to regroup they say the pro-government forces have been getting creamed foresman from other parts of the country in the past forty eight hours they also

ministers who since yesterday twenty four hours ago have been considering their positions and was said to be on the verge of resigning including the big fish michael gove they've all decided to stay on so it's looking more stable but in this context of course stability doesn't mean much more than that she'll probably survive the weekend right exactly and that's the thing is there were huge lurking in the shadows what about the potential for a leadership challenge. well again that is an issue for next week which is shaping up to quite possibly be as turbulent as this week has been and that's because of this potential looming leadership challenge in the offing letters are being sent we're told by various m.p.'s in the conservative party to the chairman of their backbench committee the one hundred twenty two committee if they reach the magic number of forty eight fifteen percent of the
10:20 pm

went really affected the bucket reports now from paris where really they are the monsters of measurements custodians of the kilogram the international general conference some weight some measurements has gathered to vote a redefining a vital calculation since eight hundred eighty nine the kilograms being based on this cylinder of polished platinum alloy the chunk of metal known as a is so precious it's kept deep in a high security vaults near paris it is the mother of all measurements from which all weighing scales everywhere in the world calibrated but there's a problem the growing case losing weight over the past one hundred twenty nine years of interacting with the air around it not to mention the occasional polish it's lost atoms fifty micrograms of mass to be precise it's just an object so if you use it you have to use it very carefully even when you put it on a balance you might change its mass
