there's a pressing issue we didn't have immigrants' at all zero in the race but this is the one political topic anybody and everybody is discussing the far right is preparing for battle and their opponents or anyone who is different. prejudice some pride in hungry. us media reports say the cia believes the saudi crown prince mohammed bin ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi flatly contradicting saudi denials. watching al-jazeera live from doha also coming up as fighting continues in yemen
12:01 pm
a glimmer of hope with the u.n. special envoy saying the warring parties will attend talks in. britain's prime minister to resume a appoints a replacement brecht's it minister of more turmoil ahead from rebels in her own party. and not much cooperation on show at the apec summit china attacks president donald trump america first policy while the us defends trade tariffs against. the cia has concluded the saudi crown prince mohammed bin selma did order the killing of jamal khashoggi according to u.s. media reports the finding contradicts head on saudi claims that the saudi crown prince was not involved in the murder of the journalist of the country's consulate in istanbul last month mike hanna has more from washington. in recent days
12:02 pm
a number of members of congress have demanded that muhammad have been silent be held accountable either by way of tweets or in the case of senator bob corker during a debate about yemen in the senate i asked for our level briefing with maddest pompei oh and you know i asked for 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 it relates to the journalist who was assassinated in my opinion at the direction of the crown prince of saudi arabia us now the washington post reports the cia has concluded that the saudi crown prince ordered the assassination of journalist jamal khashoggi the sit says according to people familiar with the matter who spoke on the condition of anonymity the report says in reaching his conclusions the cia examined multiple sources of intelligence including a phone call that the crown prince's brother and ambassador to the u.s.
12:03 pm
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 other news organizations including the new york times and the wall street journal also quoting anonymous officials confirming the report of the cia's finding although 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 internal assessment now is pointing stringers. in some as having ordered this operation this has never happened before in the cia
12:04 pm
we 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 further the congressional demands that punitive measures be taken against the crown prince and his government the question is whether the president has been briefed by the cia on its reported conclusions and if so whether he would be prepared to back away from his stated reluctance to take action against the saudi government and its leader as i cannot al-jazeera washington well let's get the story from istanbul andrew symonds is our correspondent there andrew another news cycle more leaks what else
12:05 pm
do we know. well yes there's been a leak killer that's been given to the her newspaper here in turkey and it goes like this first of all the security and prosecution sources this newspaper has been talking to say that there are no d.n.a. positive results taken either from here in the consulates or the consul's residence which is just a five minute walk away from here no d.n.a. matches with jamal khashoggi that also leads into another aspect to the case in which they're now sure these sources are now sure that these syringes were used to inject coagulants into the body of after he being killed now the purpose of this say the investigators was to cloths his blood so that when they
12:06 pm
dismembered his body there wouldn't be a spread of blood stains all over the room now these are all indicators along with many others that the cia will be aware of that show their saudi team were very instrumental in covering their tracks there was a cleanup team sent out from saudi arabia in the guise of being a joint investigation units that cleaned up entirely all the clues d.n.a. included from the premises here the consulates and indeed the consul's residence a full clean up operation which included two members of an extended team these two one was a toxicologist the other was an expert on chemicals now again this is another indicator of this being a planned operation not some sort of accident in which the leader of
12:07 pm
a team suddenly decided. pizza and off the back of these revelations from the cia in the past. eighty four hours out of washington we've also got these claims from the saudi ambassador to washington denying that he ever had a telephone conversation with jamal khashoggi saying go to istanbul go to the consulate you'll be safe but this is the same certain official who on october the eighth denied that anything had gone wrong and that was a full six days after the last trip that jamal made to the consulate behind you andrew which was following on from the september the twenty eighth trip to the same building when he was told to come back on october the second. yes how it been solomon who is the younger brother to his crown prince to crown prince mohammed bin summoned the washington saudi ambassador a did make that statement on the sixth sorry on the eighth of october in which he
12:08 pm
asserted that no. because he was not missing he was not detained by the saudis nor was he hurt in any way so that was a blatant denial when that must have been some knowledge in the system of what was going on now we keep coming back to this point there's no smoking gun it seems to be asserted we certainly aren't aware of one and the cia traces all of that data banks and all of the evidence they call eight hundred now has got to the point where as the wall street journal reports it is in the volley of follow up reports that moved on from the washington post publishing its story said that it wasn't a smoking gun it was just a collation of the way saudi arabia works an operation like this could not have gone on without the crown prince's knowledge now let's just take a look at the timeline of events when we go right back to when the south side to
12:09 pm
arabia first of all announced that jamal khashoggi was dead it said that there were eighteen people who were being detained and one of them was a siri. siri who is supposed to being the instigator of the whole thing he was the deputy head of intelligence and former spokes person for the war in yemen and the coalition in any yemen and that was well that was the one of the few names given the only other name given what was. the actual special advisor to mohammed bin some himself and this special this special advisor was. supposed to be detained but we've heard unconfirmed reports that he hasn't been detained that he's been working as a special advisor to the crown prince on officially and he is not named in the
12:10 pm
seventeen a list of those sanctioned by the u.s. he is the eighteenth person but he's not sanctioned so that is another indication of just where we're at right now the finger is pointing now at the white house in terms of where they're going next because most of the critics both in the u.s. congress and elsewhere want to see more action from donald trump soon to actually meet really what is a momentum now that's getting bigger and bigger pointing at the crown prince andrew thanks very much cynical sort of joins us live from ankara the turkish capital sin and presumably this news from the cia is exactly what mr one wants to hear what does he do next do we think. yes exactly the cia reports actually affirms what don said and what are dong one so here it was interesting that the cia report was revealed just hours later or
12:11 pm
a day after the turkish media reported that there are some more voice recordings from from the calls to date from the scene that jamal khashoggi was murdered on october the second of course the report says the tiger team the hit squad has discoursed the voice of us estimating the ways of murdering jamal ji which is very important because the other the other details that the reports show a direct link with the m b s even though there is another small can go on as you and andrew but of course this is important for turkey because cia report confirms what turkey turkish official disc has been until today don is scheduled to speak today in the later afternoon in istanbul we are expecting him to say something about this but also last night i don't understand donald trump u.s. president had a phone conversation and the requests came from mr donald trump as far as we have
12:12 pm
learned from the presidential sources along with many other issues related to buy they true relations was one of the most important issues they have debated and i have also learned from my sources that mr donald trump invited president don to united states there is no announced invitation right now but this is what i learned from my very important sources in ankara so we might see president flying to us in the coming days but today one more development is that turkey's foreign minister who has also had very harsh reactions after to saudi attorney's presser during the week he will be flying to the united states to attend in the u n civilizations. lions conference on monday in new york but he's flying today and he's expected to meet with the u.s. counterpart mike pompei oh and if they wait and meet and when they meet they will be probably discussing about the details of this case so these are very important
12:13 pm
details on the side of the line of on korea and washington and of course these will have very important reflections but one thing that turkey is trying to do besides conducting some relation with the united states is that turkey is trying to avoid an impression that this has shipped to murder is a bilateral issue between riyadh and corrupt but just the opposite because there was a very prominent journalist and this is an international case turkey is trying to internationalize the case one thing i would like to mention actually is that in the last presser of saudi attorney they mentioned some local color greatest and i have been speaking to turkish officials here that they are expecting that soldiers might frame some turkish officials in order to stop turkey from taking this case to international platforms c.n.n. thanks very much well james dorsey is an author and senior fellow at the rajaratnam
12:14 pm
school of international studies in singapore he says the saudi story is rapidly losing credibility. it's becoming more and more difficult to get shield conference. from the consequences of what happened and it is time for fact of the matter is however that if one really reached between the lines of what washington post business or any of what the cia was saying this remains primarily an analytical conclusion rather than one that has a smoking gun i think that the advantage of turkey in the last six weeks as well as the the problem that the south but the stock of something as well as those that would like to shield the friends from what is happening is that the saudis simply have not been able to develop one earring story that seems to be better and that they can maintain out the safety the fact that they have continuously had to change this story contradict themselves in the minds of
12:15 pm
a credibility i think the problem is that clearly whatever the saudis have put forward raises more questions than answers them and the longer this takes them the more difficult it gets to the fountains and others put to this house. or not enough which is about france in any case at the knowledge. graham still to come on al-jazeera including these stories the u.n. facing increasing pressure to keep the peace in mali and win the trust of the people. also ahead protest in france as efforts to clean up the environment the drivers you make those stories from a comeback. well

our circulation of thunderstorms spotted here has developed into a place of interest to me it looks to me like a tropical cyclone doesn't it's not quite that bad it looks like a good circulation of low pressure the right is full not of it in the islands forty fifty millimeters in twenty four hours not a huge amount but it's moving slowly so i think the sudden vietnam it could be a pretty nasty affair from the point of view of the amount of rain it's light to bring but asserted the winds there's another one in the very edge of your screen developing so the train actually of these potential storms coming this way a little bit further north they should be this time of year the main rains the big thunderstorms of the south they should be throughout in the days you're a pretty well scattered but there is still a way to the back to jakarta not so much in borneo not so much even sumatra but k.l. and singapore both light to seize daily thunderstorms that's correct really we have at least for today some storm warnings for the northeast of the south wales and

12:22 pm
and their property but they have their limitations their mission is also to protect the floor for humanitarian aid but it's becoming extremely difficult now add to that the fact the relief workers themselves do not want to be escorted by men in arms. this may look like a un peacekeeping force but in fact these are al-qaeda fighters on their way to launch an attack the tactic shows how dangerous the situation has become for civilians and foreign armies in mali and qaeda attacks on the united nations mission here and other foreign armies have become a daily occurrence and this despite the fact that the role of the un mission is not to participate in war but rather to keep the peace now added to its insecurity challenge the un is trying to fill the void left by aid organizations says our intervention in the area of the culture. but the thirty two distinct today believe one of our largest projects which is to come to some here is a large force chart
