12:00 am
doubt investigations in other cases for most notably during the franco period in spain or crimes related to the franco period in spain so the argentina has is a fertile legal ground for enforcing international humanitarian and human rights laws things like the geneva convention and the torture convention but i would suggest straight and i'm sure you're practical and pragmatic about this that the stage of the g. twenty is not the place where this sort of thing would happen despite the president's you've spoken about. so with that in mind how would how else would you put keep up the pressure that you want on saudi arabia and mohamed bin soman. well of course many people around the world are keeping up the pressure both for the killing of shogi for what's going on in yemen in this this particular complaint does not rely on politics it says you have
12:01 am
a man who is potentially coming into your territory who is alleged to have committed certain crimes now what the prosecutor the judge has referred this case to a prosecutor in the argentine legal system the prosecutor and the investigating judge kind of work in tandem what that judge can do with the prosecutor now is begin to investigate he can potentially ask to interview mohamed bin so mom when he comes now obviously arjun the argentine government may have other ideas about this but the judiciary in argentina is one of the most independent and we are hoping that the judge takes the law into account takes the facts that we have submitted about violations of the laws of war in yemen about torture in saudi arabia and does what a prosecutor and a judge are supposed to do which is look into the charges interesting this will be
12:02 am
really interesting to watch as the g twenty begins in argentina reporting from the human rights watch thank you. just as we speak of muhammad bin someone we've got a profile of him at al-jazeera dot com which i found today now this is actually from a year ago but i think that's what makes it actually quite interesting how one year ago he was touted as the great reformer of saudi arabia but now as we know dodging out of ordering a murder anyway it is interesting to see where he came from the background the reforms he has put in place there's a couple of episodes of inside story there as well good context of what has changed in this past year profile mohammed bin selman al jazeera dot com and we want to hear from you already hearing a lot of people supporting the way that the tune is ian's speaking up about mohammed bin salman as he arrives in the country. news grid at a.j. english on twitter if you want to reply to the tweet thread then they had on judy looking for your responses there most of the responses so far coming from facebook dot com slash al-jazeera mohammad says bravo to museums for condemning the dictator
12:03 am
and plus an uncivil fire one triple one for nine direct messaging us on whatsapp and on telegram i'm at come on if you want to send me a direct message on twitter for now we will move on u.s. media reporting actually to still sort of related with mohamed been some in u.s. media is reporting that donald trump's son in law. pushed officials in the department of defense to inflate the value of arms deals with saudi arabia in order to increase their perceived importance this is coming from a.b.c. news which is krishna successfully had a fifteen billion dollars deal recategorized as a one hundred ten billion dollars deal after trying visited riyadh these pictures of course from may of twenty seventeen the old has not yet been fulfilled we should say leading democrats say they will investigate the trump family's links to saudi arabia if we go to the white house is kimberly halkett white house correspondent what more can you tell us about these revelations kimberly. well this revelation certainly start to explain the difference between the president's numbers that he's
12:04 am
been citing and those numbers that we saw in a recent center for international policy study the president talking about the value of those deals saying the need to preserve the u.s. saudi relationship because of one hundred ten billion in weapons sales to saudi arabia from u.s. companies well the policy study had it fourteen point five billion here's now we know why these numbers are so vastly different because they're inflated centrally what the reporting is coming out of the united states is that shared donald trump's son in law pushed not only the national security council but also the sate department the department of defense to try and find aspirational deals working with saudi arabia as well that's why when that letter of intent was signed in the president's first foreign trip met many of these deals have not yet come to fruition in fact some of them that are in place came from the obama administration so in terms of the president's numbers really this is all about trying to achieve
12:05 am
success in that may twenty seventeen trip and these numbers that the president continues to cite in terms of why he feels there is a need to preserve the saudi u.s. relationship well increasingly they are being called into question with each passing week want to could all of this lead to potentially in congress can really. two words of adam schiff the soon to be head of the house intelligence committee a democrat on capitol hill deep dive that's what they plan to do they're already saying they're going to be holding hearings into the death of jim so she and the crown prince the saudi crown prince has connections to that pressing for what the trump administration knows about that and also that cia assessment the one that the cia director gina haskell briefed the president on the president saying that it was not conclusive or well many members of congress prominent members who would have had access to that intelligence
12:06 am
a fact that was very conclusive points to the crown prince so expect that we're going to be hearing having public hearings there will be investigations in fact we know that already the secretary of defense and the secretary of state could be on capitol hill as early as wednesday talking to members of congress not clear yet if that will be an open or closed door session my sick my hunch is it will be closed door but certainly we'll be watching for that because the members of congress even president's own party members not happy with the president's explanation on this wanting more answers kimberly how could in washington thank you a quarter in russian an extra mia has ordered three ukrainian sailors to remain in detention for two months these were the ones detained during that naval confrontation with russian forces in the black sea on sunday moscow accuses them of illegally entering its territorial waters russian forces of course opened fire. on three ukrainian ships before seizing them and capturing more than twenty sailors
12:07 am
ukraine's government has declared martial law in response let's go to enter simmons' he's in kiev in very cold looking ukraine there andrew tell us about these court orders. well we know very little about this court hearing but ukrainian media is saying that those three men have been served with detention orders for investigations and that will last two months russian media reporting that twelve of the twenty three servicemen are before this court but it's now emerged that not all of the crew on those three boats were in fact sailors because the secret the security service for ukraine has revealed that it had counter-intelligence offices on the bugs and it's also said for the first time that one of two russian fighter jets opened fire
12:08 am
with unguarded missiles aimed at least one of the boats and one of its agents was seriously injured in that attack now the situation of the current straits well it isn't a place of conflict right now but the woods the rhetoric from both sides are increasing in their volatility and really what we're hearing now is a warning from russia that the limited effects of a what we think will be limited effects of a military operation here in ukraine and martial law being imposed on wednesday could escalate the situation even more according to russia and we're also hearing from ukraine at the navy that the situation could escalate and also that the navy feels that russia was deliberately shooting to kill in this incident on sunday you raised the point of the martial law there and to which we were very much focused on
12:09 am
yesterday what does that actually amount. well it's much more limited than repairer shanker the ukrainian president had wanted he wanted sixty days of martial law fully imposed nationwide but he came across a lot of resistance not only just in his coalition but right across the board in parliament they did not suggest that that was going to get passed he had to water it down to a limited area of coastal districts regions bordering russia and furthermore he also qualified it with well yes there has to be some sort of more aggression from russia for it to be fully imposed so the reason for this is that there are a presidential elections at the end of march next year and some felt some politicians felt that he would get really a lot of restrictions put on political gatherings for instance during that period
12:10 am
of martial law and that would work in his favor right now his popularity is running really low so he was politicizing trying to get a benefit according to his critics although he would argue that this was a crisis for the country the biggest crisis so far the worst since the annexation of crimea in twenty forty and so he was acting in the nation's interests in trying to firm up defenses in case of further aggression or even a land invasion by russia andrew symonds reporting from kiev thank you andrew with this story fresh the inside story team took a deep dive on the ukraine russia conflict in their last edition not just the latest escalation of course the antics of crimea four years ago as you see adrian finnegan in the state for that one hour you'll find it as ever in the show you section it on to zero dot com there is always a new edition of inside story at seventeen thirty g.m.t. every day which is ninety minutes after the newsgroup. we are off to mars now where the first spacecraft designed to study the in the depths of the red planet is
12:11 am
getting down to work it is the inside probe which finished a six month journey to mars with a successful landing if you have a look at this in for a graphic which we have from al-jazeera dot com gives you a little idea of what it looks like and what it's designed to do here it is on the surface with its instrument deployment camera and its grapple and its pressure. but it's what's going on down here the heat flow probe which is boring right down into the planet there and as we see here our mission duration of one month's year and forty sols which is around to be with us every day is a school day always learning here let's have a look at this report now from rosalind jordan inside should now be experiencing the peak heating rate after ten years of dreaming designing and testing. my heart was basically i think to stop beating for seven minutes i don't know if that's healthy or not but. but then when we got the indication of parachute deployment
12:12 am
which was absolutely terrifying thing to think about we got that positive and then listening to christine still a call out as we got closer and closer to the surface every time she made a call out you know the hairs on the back of my neck would start rising a little bit higher a little bit higher touchdown for the mars insight lander a monday as suggested by the santa mation touchdown compared to. that insight first photo from its new home the elysium planet sia using a two meter robotic arm a seismometer and other instruments in sight will dig a hole five meters deep so it can record so-called mars quakes and calculate just how hot the red planet's inner layers get they want to understand why mars which once may have been habitable by life is no longer wonderful nasa scientists say this data will help them understand more about mars origins and perhaps about the earth as well and boost u.s.
12:13 am
efforts to get humans on mars by the twenty thirty s when we can actually begin to estimate you know which ones might be happy to pull and which ones maybe not habitable based on some of the geophysical understanding that will get just by looking at mars. just for the atmosphere if sending insight to mars was the hard part one nasa scientist says it's only going to get harder but that first photo will be a big help everyone gathered around the very front and was immediately deciding where to replace instruments and this is a great indication we were all certain that that first image would help us determine how difficult of a job we would have in placing the instruments and i'm very happy that it looks like we'll be able to add to it quite easily we hope the payoff is already coming in a second photo taken by. one of two many communication satellites that flew within sight of. this and the prospect of future discoveries have these scientists
12:14 am
celebrate before they get back to work roslyn jordan al-jazeera washington very pleased to have mike wall with us now on skype from pasadena he's a senior writer for space dot com i've been leading the websites coverage of the mas projects are perfectly placed to talk to us i would like to ask mike my stupid question first. and not to say that i'm an all doubting what is going on but i just want to know how do we know that all this happened we know that a rocket was launched with a probe on it how do you know it actually got to mars that it's actually sending all of the spec it just it's always at the back of my head yeah well. like dead some respect so yeah i guess you have to trust. the hundreds and hundreds of scientists that worked on this project that they're not all that some grand conspiracy this actually did did happen that they have the data to kind of. yeah slightly to fight there but anyway what tell me more about this project what do you think two years it's got out there what do you think it can it can provide in that
12:15 am
time it can i mean provided all the technology works and it does what it's supposed to do. yeah yeah it'll be interesting i mean this is the first mission that's actually not concerned with the surface of mars i mean other missions have a kind of rolled around looking for signs of ancient lakes ancient rivers could could mars have been habitable back in the past in this one it purpose so that on a really boring flat area because it doesn't care about the surface it just wanted a safe place to land and let the plates instruments so we shouldn't expect lots of pretty pictures we shouldn't expect any kind of different pictures because it's a lander not a rover so it's not going to move and we shouldn't expect anything really fast because it's going to take a while for a taxi deploy its instruments and probably like i mean two or three months for them to figure out where exactly they want to put those instruments at that robotic arm which kind of reach out to the rover a speck grab the like seismometers put him down grab that berm he prob put it down and that's that's like you only get one shot at they have to make sure that they that they do it really right so it's going to take them
12:16 am
a long time to figure out of the them calibrate instruments so if you like three months or four months before the surge getting data and but what once you get that data it's actually going to be really cool we're going to see what they're going to see marise quake slate what are the internal rumblings of mars that the super sensitive seismometers are going to pick up like meteorite strikes on mars so we get a yes so we get an idea of how often meteorites going to strike the red planet and at the end of the day when this missions over and they've got all the data they need we should have a really good idea of how mars is put together what it's made of kind of what the different layers on the inside look like and this should tell us a great deal about just kind of rocky planets in general and what they're put and what does it potentially give us for the future then because i guess this has to be with something a history mission is great to find out about what has made up maz on to this point but with that was it leading to. yeah i mean it's that's that's a good question it's probably i mean it's going to help us understand planetary habitability because when you talk about worlds that could support life you're
12:17 am
talking about rocky planets and i mean earth is obviously on the rocky planet that we know of that supports life but we're intrigued about what are the characteristics that go into kind of making the world habitable what are the qualities that you have to have to continue to be able to support life mars looks like it was able to actually support but like some kind of life at least for for a few hundred million years back need to pass and it's sort of frozen in time i mean we can't do the same sort of work here on earth because our planet so active geologically it's insides are still roiling it's got plate tectonics all this stuff so it's not frozen in time comet kind of like mars and so so we can take what we know from mars and we can extrapolate it to other worlds and say well mars is this big and this this mass and it it's it looks like this and it's not habitable now at least as far as we know on the surface and here's what we know about earth which is habitable so so we can take those various data points and kind of extrapolate what we're looking for for other planets like might be able to support life fascinating
12:18 am
stuff mike well thank you for your time in new york's parties and for humoring me as well i do appreciate it sir thanks for having me. thanks for getting in touch with us as well most of you want to talk about the visit of mohammed bin some of the saudi crown prince to. c.n.n. an interesting comment actually from watching on facebook life is that i don't think they should give him such a welcome many worse people have made a visit to countries and didn't receive any harsh treatment he actually deserves better this will probably be the most hostile reaction he gets on the story has been to egypt and bahrain where he's been well received there as we were saying with our guest earlier don't know what will await him in argentina at the g twenty your thoughts your comments your questions the hash tag as i join us good twitter facebook whatsapp and telegram this is the news good interview with the sun on facebook like an extra story for you know about one way to beat minimus extremely congested traffic that's my friends in asia plus and then later genetic
12:19 am
modifications we'll tell you why claims made by doctors in china are causing global condemnation. hello the weather is slushy quiets unsettled now across the middle east for a change after a recent spell of stormy weather still a few bits of unsettled weather over towards the western side of the himalayas with some snow here just ten celsius in kabul chance of a little bit damp weather just pushing into the facade of the mediterranean edging into syria pushing inland as we go through into thursday but more the way of cloud here stormy conditions i think cyprus could see some shop shows and to me in the mix for some rather disturbed weather but elsewhere as you can see iraq generally dry ice in the eastern part of the country into iran over towards afghanistan and pakistan and generally dry see across iran presents less than a fair bit of clavicles northern parts of saudi arabia could see
12:20 am
a little bit damp weather if not a passageway for the south which of these was towards the u.a.e. as we go on through with a brighter skies come back into the way you do see the cloud was. i suppose in a few spots of right maybe they all get up on a bus coming through some heavy shall us now affecting the east aside all south africa a little bit of time weather so the possible as we go through the next couple of days is nudging its way further northwards up towards mozambique channel as we go through thursday may be right he looks on the cause for eastern pa zimbabwe. stories of life. and inspiration. a series of short documentaries from around the wilds. that celebrate the human spirit. against the odds.
12:21 am
al-jazeera sent acts palestinians. and monday pointed one on the. u.s. and british companies have announced the biggest discovery of natural gas in west africa but what to do with these untapped natural resources is already a source of heated debate nothing much has changed they still spend most of their days looking forward to for the dry river beds like this one five years on the syrians still feel battered or even those who managed to escape their country haven't truly been able to escape the war.
12:22 am
the headlines around zero dot com and what's trending as well russia warning of an escalation of ukraine's martial law andrew symonds was talking us through that a little bit earlier in the latest on the consignments trip of course to not actually show when he's going to arrive tomorrow shell was telling us it will be kept very very tight at the moment and more on the ball the crisis in democratic republic of congo don't forget about that very much still going on that is what's
12:23 am
trending adult zero dot com this tuesday. we're looking at a story now that getting a lot of attention and actually causing a lot of outrage as well as chinese scientists their crimes he's created the world's first genetically edited babies designer babies you could call them and a video posted online this week professor hay junkie says the twin girls were born a few weeks ago and that he altered their genes to prevent them from contracting a chivied his claim has not been independently verified but some researches of reacted with alarm they are calling it scary in fact china's national health commission is calling for an investigation just soldiery east's and sort of remain a technology for here any. how. it's not what a lovely apple does that sort of the bat. i understand that war will
12:24 am
be controversial but i've found this taking lars and i to take the criticism. before we speak to i guess what do you explain to us why this is quite so controversial what is the issue here welcome all again a sponsor outrage online and most people are concerned about the possible implications and welfare of the babies more than one hundred scientists signed a petition calling for greater oversight on gene editing experiments many people think the technology could be misused want to use the says he's not a fan of gene editing adding i've read the arguments of how it can help but we rarely use technology for its intended use another person says this is paved with good intentions but needs careful consideration and that's another that it's not actually a question of allowing the technology to be used because it's going to happen anyway well of course this experiment poses many ethical challenges and here's what
12:25 am
the dean of harvard medical school had to say on the issue. we're clearly still getting our grasp on the science and then of course there are the root are deeper societal questions of what kinds of conditions might this be used for there's certainly more acceptance of the use for alleviating disease alleviating suffering but what about just disease risks hey what about traits that we might call enhanced ments should this be a technology that we use to affect a child's ultimate height their skin color maybe their. various other traits that on which are the basis of much of our discussions well putting aside the ethical considerations this could also be harmful the long term effects of this decision are still unknown so what exactly is gene editing technology while it let
12:26 am
scientists alter the d.n.a. of living cells is mainly used to study diseases ulta crops and food for better production but in people gene editing is still highly experimental in the u.s. scientists can perform laboratory embryo research only with private funding and altering genes in humans means those adjustments can be passed down to future generations who won't have consent to those changes and critics say this could be the sort of so-called design of babies a ton that refers to babies whose genes are chosen by the parents and doctors so that they have certain features all what do you think of gene editing that a snow is the hash tag aging is going to come all thanks for here we've got robert klitzman with us now a professor of psychiatry and director of the monsters of bioethics program at columbia university is with us and scott from new york we thank you for your time this is an absolute minefield we've heard it from where he live a we've heard it in our intro there let's just start with the positives. the potential here is enormous isn't it if we're talking about diseases if we're
12:27 am
talking about limiting the quote unquote bad things and i thought potential here must be extraordinary. yes so there are several possibilities of good things that could eventually come from this technology if it's found to be safe and i just want to remind the viewers that first of all it's not clear if dr he in fact did what he said he did so he says that we're is scientists in the u.k. and in several other countries have been experimenting in the laboratory in a petri dish with editing the genes of an embryo he said that he now went ahead and inserted such an embryo into a woman and created twins this is not been confirmed by any source and there are several people who are unsure if in fact he did this just as background he also says he's creating a company and there's been talk whoever does manage to do this quote may win
12:28 am
a nobel prize this may be patentable so there's potentially you know billions of dollars at stake you that may motivate someone to go ahead and say they did this but in terms of the positive there are a number of diseases that unfortunately are caused or broom bunch contributed to by a mutation and if weekend lead to children dying at an early age babies dying at an early age dying and so the possibility at some point of being able to take out those bad mutations from an embryo such that the person never develops these diseases could get great thing just on the point you made about and it's a very valid point about none of this being proven yet it can you explain to us how he could prove that is there a definitive way where he will be able to present to the world and say yes this is what i did yes well it's a good question so i i think that what he could say is is here. oh this gene that
12:29 am
existed in one of the parents and here are the genes of the babies and neither of them have that gene and they clearly have the other genes of the parents it's that would be one way to say that we edited it out of the gene out could be the gene just didn't pass along but that's the kind of evidence that would show that yes he was able to do this and i want to emphasize that it's not just a question of what the benefit is but the question is what are the risks versus the benefits and the concern now that the world says community of scientists has this that this could be as i said research that has a lot of positive benefits but there are also risks particularly now when it's still considered by most people experimental so if i take a gene out of an embryo so the no cell in my body has that gene that gene
12:30 am
in the case of what dr he did he took out a gene that enables h. i.v. to get into the body the cells if you're exposed to be with that same gene could be involved let's say in the proper functioning of the brain or the liver or the heart and so other one of the concerns with this technology is that if we take out a particular gene because we think it may be involved in a particular disease or our function might that gene have other functions that we don't yet fully understand that may lead to problems in the child and so you also want to see that these are healthy kids for instance that they are in otherwise every all systems are go just to come to canceling sorry i want to get one more question to you before we have to move on and that's just about obviously the flip side the negative side regulation would have to be absolutely if down the road this was found to be something viable and otherwise you just get people making all sorts of choices by themselves. yes exactly so you do need to be careful regulation
12:31 am
careful oversight he did not publish it in a scientific journal so it's not clear exactly what you get it cetera. professor robert klitzman pleasure talking to you really interesting topic isn't it thank you so much for your time you're welcome we're going to have a look now at some other stories making news around the world and three u.s. soldiers have been killed in a roadside bomb explosion in eastern afghanistan and happened in the city of gaza three others were injured this is the deadliest attack on u.s. forces in afghanistan in the past seventeen months it was claimed by the taliban who are actually at the center of an international conference taking place right now in geneva on afghanistan's future leaders from afghanistan to the international diplomats to discussing the future of the country how to bring some stability shall ability has been looking at that. as president ashraf ghani and chief executive of dealer abdullah deposit kabul for geneva they lift behind this
12:32 am
violent protests across the west of the city over the wrist of a local shia commander the disparate to prove they are in control and in geneva they will lay down what they have achieved with international money what afghanistan has to show the billions spent on security and i have a seventeen year is the sad news is that the afghan government will not have a stellar achievement the prison to do that and that's the thing we did on when sitting getting afghanistan i'm sure that could be a very difficult time for the afghan government to show a tangible outcome for the law for the last two years. well not tangible there is optimism around the prospect of peace talks between the taliban and the u.s. became public six months ago and have gained momentum in recent weeks of. foreign troops in your country what will be your demand of course we want to be the go out and you. live in a free country that's starting to manage to need to go on
12:33 am
a u.s. special envoy to afghanistan was announced in september to broker a deal. with all parties earlier this month where in very strong negotiations in afghanistan right now which a lot of people don't know about this may be the first but we are in very very strong negotiation in afghanistan we'll see what happens if something happens that would be a great thing. president danny has largely been sidelined the taliban says they will only talk with the government after reaching an agreement with the u.s. i will not in afghanistan have from a holiday all the afghans even militant groups are tired of fighting it is clear that these gatherings are pushing towards peace all afghans are supportive of this conference it will be better for the future of one side and i hope so it will be. part of his start would tell you what is. far away from the streets of kabul in geneva they will take stock of this reality they'll debate how to give afghans
12:34 am
a base a life they will talk about pace and solidarity accountability and commitment woods that mean little here but they carry on aware it's a moment to miss and charlotte dallas. just a quick look ahead as well to some u.s. politics an important senate race happening in mississippi between republican senators cindy hyde smith and the democratic challenger mike espy this is tightened in the closing days of the race and that's got republicans and donald trump a little in an easy and fact on monday the president campaigned for hyde smith e l two rallies in mississippi her campaign has been hampered by a number of racially controversal comments which has sparked a lot of outrage s.p. the challenger was the secretary of agriculture in the administration of president bill clinton and in a tweet just a few hours ago donald trump said this the polls are open in mississippi we need cindy hyde smith in washington go out and vote thanks to
12:35 am
a story we've been keeping an eye on actually for a good many months now actually syrian refugee who'd been living basically in limbo at kuala lumpur airport more than eight months and he's received some positive news where he has been looking at that thanks while now has been living at kuala lumpur airport since march he was last stranded by and lines an immigration officials but he's just announced some good news and he's on his way to vancouver. i mean they want to move from the airport or to war i would be. removed from vancouver canada. for the last three if it was hard at all. and then months it was very odd. i could not do it with all the prayers from all of you i could not do it without. my firm of the way canadian friends. my lawyer. thank you all. i love your.
12:36 am
so here's the back story house and was deported from the u.a.e. last year when his work visa expired he then travel to malaysia but was refused a visa that would allow him an extended stay there his goal was to get ecuador but again was refused permission to board a flight house and fit a rest if he went back to syria now he's been documenting his journey on social media sleeping understand wells and depending on the kindness of airport and airline staff for food and supplies and his video diaries have generated a lot of attention online lori cooper a media relations consultant in whistle near vancouver sought a petition to help privately sponsor her son to resettle in canada canada is one of the few countries that would accept him as a refugee of the petition raised over twenty thousand dollars but last month malaysian authorities arrested cantars official suggested that he would likely be deported to syria meanwhile the canadian officials have since been working to
12:37 am
arrange his resettlement. now while this may be good news for hostile cantars the united nations says the number of asylum seekers awaiting their outcome of applications for refugee status has risen from about three hundred thousand to three point one million by the end of december last year. well what do you think of the story let us know use the hash tag agent is good or you can message me directly after him home and i think it's a great story really it's good to hear it happening on that one isn't it just quickly before we move on a lot of you with some questions and comments on the design of babies story what's the purpose and goal of creating the edited gene newborns will basically fake can be genetically edited to avoid a gene or an illness that we do is known to run in their family will that can obviously only be good for them but the fear is that it will be used to just create well a type of child or a certain look of child and certainly that's what another facebook comment here is
12:38 am
always good and bad in any innovation think of nuclear energy can be utilized for development purpose on the other hand it can be dangerous if used in war that is a sit. massive minefield. not proven yet as the professor was telling us thank you for your comments and questions. if you're with us on facebook . or.
12:39 am
12:40 am
some of these you know are almost getting sick about skin wins this football match going to happen or are you going to find out in a minute from this elaborate excellent south american football officials have announced the second leg of the call by the best of those final will take place outside of argentina fan violence resulted in the game between when osiris rivals the river plate in boca juniors being spun the fixture is now is set to happen on either december the eighth the old the ninth a but no final decision on the venue has been made argentina's president has a has to his say criticize in the security panel that it was in place for saturday's game. and does this month as only disappoint everything that's been said about the police operate in which the mer of one is aries is responsible for how can it be that the police arrested only twenty three people after the disturbances on saturday and within hours within i was these people were three or do not
12:41 am
understand i don't understand you in the name of insinuations or i do not understand why this is the continent's most important club football competition and for the first time ever these fears when osiris rivals are meeting in the final the first leg bokeh stadium finished in a two two draw after an attack on bocas team bus said the return game at the river stadium was postponed twice in two days italy abu dhabi and the united states have all been named as possible the news for their rearranged game while a talk to our correspondent an astronomer who is in the argentinian capital right now so daniel we've heard that the game will still go on what else have you been hearing from that meeting. well it does seem to be one of the longest finals i think in possibly in world footballing history that first came in in the book a stadium was the tenth of november delayed by
12:42 am
a day because of rain in the twenty fourth of november delayed by a day because of violence and then now you know as you say the eighth or the ninth of december many venues being touted possibly paraguay itself where the commie board meeting is has just taken place some are talking about miami others are even going as far afield as jenna were in italy because that is where booker junior the people who live around that area many of them have their roots so that's still up in the air what has been stated quite categorically though is the final will not take place in argentina after that kind of what many are saying was a debacle of the security operation the mayor of one of cyrus has sacked the head of the security department yesterday over what what happened there so calmly bill will take over the security arrangements wherever that final is play and it is just three or four days before the world club championships kicks off in the united arab emirates south america has to have a representative on the block
12:43 am
a junior is already of a plate so we're wins that game on the eighth or the ninth of december but whatever it may be we'll take part will represent south america in not in that world club championships then i'll be officials happy about this decision do they want the game to go ahead. what river plate certainly they're happy they've said all along they want the game to go ahead baka juniors were asking for the game not to happen for them to be. given given the championship to be given a couple but a lot is it was never quite clear why that was the case some were saying as revenge for them being thrown out the last time the two teams met in the couple live with their daughters in the last sixteen in two thousand and fifteen they were thrown out after their fans brave the river players with with pepper spray they were unhappy about the how their own happy about the events of this saturday to never really clear so possibly revenge possibly was basically a lot of questions and very few answers the book i'm not happy with the decision
12:44 am
river very happy the book of fans i think the football fans in argentina always wanted the games to go ahead nobody wants the minister to champion they want to see football being played but in all that's been going on in all the accusations the rumors of the violence one thing that's very easy to forget is it still is a game of football that people want to see but we've we almost passed that by with all the speculation about of the relevance of what went on over the weekend and found a life from when cyrus thank you very much for that so apparently there is another way to win a football league other than working hard on the field who knew that social media of all things could possibly be used to win titles while they started going to bruges motion the fan that thought so so this guy named joss tweeted his team saying give us the leak while the then his club actually responded asking the bones league or how many rate they needed to win the league well that was
12:45 am
a guest said fifty million would do a vote saying that's harsh but then went for it anyway by pinning his tweet saying . please help will help me please a man named his leaks all despite their best efforts the members of the small that they have seventeen thousand retreat so far you do the math if you think it will add up to the will being fifty million looks like they need to just stick to winning the war games they're currently second in the league and of right in contention for this six title well file be back with more at eighteen g.m.t. but for now i'll hand you back to cuba thank you for sun i thought if i'm not mistaken that came from someone who tweeted a fast food joint wendy's and asked them how many retreats for a lifetime supply of. chicken nuggets wasn't it that's what it was and it was like to help a man who needs notes but that's where it's come from. states

12:51 am
a person who gave the order for that but also because of the war in yemen and the killing both thousands of women and children and devastation of that country's been some on obviously the architect of that war there was a large protest. that took to the streets on tuesday they condemned this visit they say. some bunch of not the welcome to the birthplace of the arab spring a country which has enjoyed significant freedom relatively to other neighboring countries in the arab world in fact that they think that their protest is not simply against because of his policies and the fact that saudi arabia to this day a host tunisian dictator who was removed from power because of the arab spring but that they had to take to the streets they pay because they needed to be the voice of the voice and if those are the millions of hours for example in egypt and bahrain and united arab emirates other countries the man has visited any one who
12:52 am
would not be able to protest because of the fact that for example in egypt it is run by what is widely considered to be a military dictatorship there has been popular this comes first often a rejection to this visit the president hasn't been forthcoming with regard to why it is taking place but analysts would say that it is an attempt by might have been some months of trial that he is undeterred from the fallout of the federal case that not only is he still very much in power but also he wants to show that he will continue to pursue his policies all the things that i have been used by his supporters as reformists. the part of critics is very different from. let's get more now all nice out of crown prince's upcoming trip to argentina for that g twenty summit on friday al-jazeera sres bose in the capital one desirous for a sin first of all choice of tell us more about human rights watch and their legal briefs in the court. well everything is ready year in argentina
12:53 am
to host the g twenty summit in the next few days we'll be seeing donald trump live in you putting and that mohamed bin hammam will be coming here to one side and this is happening just at the same time that human rights watch has asked judiciary to start examining and investigating war crimes and torture in yemen and the killing of saudi journey. and investigating mohammad right now where they case stands with a prosecutor who is deciding whether or not to initiate an investigation and to demand a warrant to most of the lawyers we have spoken to say that various too little time for all of this have to happen in just a few days but we'll have to see what happens with that it's interesting to know that argentina has a constitution recognizes universe so jurisdiction on cases of torture and to war crimes in fact it empowers the arjan time judiciary to investigate and to prosecute
12:54 am
and it is thanks to these two universal jurisdiction for example the general said it was detained in london in one nine hundred ninety eight and also members of argentina as military who were detained in other parts of the world when there were two amnesty laws here in argentina protecting them and i guess that's why a human rights watch has felt it was a good idea to try this complaint what has been the response if any so fall from the government that to the idea that this complaint will be lodged in a court. well for now we have not heard any type of response from the government but this is a major headache for the government of. right now because he's hoping that this event the g. twenty well help argentina attract a much needed for ing investment let's not forget that argentina right now is going through an economic crisis with inflation a rising unemployment of protest of violence in football among so many other
12:55 am
problems and this is the problem a problem that the government does not want to deal with right now but in spite of this and even though this investigation requested by human rights watch goes nowhere this is part of a major strategy a strategy to lead no the saudi crown prays that wherever it goes there could be legal troubles waiting for him all right to his boat live in buenos aires thank you . no of course in russian controlled crimea has ordered some of the ukrainian navy sailors captured by russia to be held for two months the sailors are accused of illegally entering russia's territorial waters they were seized after russian forces opened fire on three ukrainian ships at the weekend in response ukraine's parliament voted to impose martial law for thirty days well the new restrictions
12:56 am
will come into force or wednesday in ten selected regions of ukraine those regions border russia to the north and east. russia annexed crimea and the black sea in the south and moldova's breakaway russian troops supporting transnistria region to the west part of the hunts and the next regions that were placed under martial law have been under russian control though since twenty fourteen let's go to moscow enjoying al-jazeera is very challen sir where bring us up to date with the latest from that course in crimea and what's happening to those ukrainian sailors. well there are as we are being told by the russians a total of twenty four ukrainian service mn including two people from the ukrainian security services and the courts in crimea is expected to
12:57 am
process eleven of them today we have heard that the first of them has been basically detained for as you said two months there until the end of january january twenty fifth two thousand and nineteen we've also heard from other officials in crimea russian officials that. the three they have in their custody who are injured are likely to be released from sort of medical attention hospital in the next three days or so the ukrainians have requested that the international red cross be allowed in to check these people to make sure that they are being kept in the right conditions than of their health is ok that sort of thing. the kremlin has said that when these men do reach trial it is going to be the russian courts that decide on their fate not some
12:58 am
diktats from the kremlin itself that i think is going to raise their eyebrows of people who look at the way that the russian justice system works. say that it's not a particularly independent judicial system but that's what the kremlin is saying about how these men are going to be troy dimensionally clavey a lot of international concern about this dispute anything happening a tool on the diplomatic front. well i mean it's an interesting question isn't it if the russians been saying from the get go that this was a cynical premeditated provocation from the ukrainian government that it was all set up basically to bring down more sanctions against russia and su shore up petro poroshenko falling poll numbers well if that is the case then it's a provocation that the russians walked right into and brought down you know an
12:59 am
international firestorm basically but now that they have all of this international attention it seems that russia would quite like to try and make this more of a local. of course so what happens in the united nations security council last nights where there was a fair degree of criticism for russia's part in in this whole affair we can listen to now. the russian foreign minister to hear what he had to say about things. it was to do from the situation was discussed last night during a phone call between president putin and german chancellor angela merkel who phoned putin they have reach certain understanding which i think will be fulfilled in the near future i don't see any need for mediators i think this is a purely practical issue. so
1:00 am
that was a lover of their saying that he would like to keep it you know a local practical issue. that he was saying that they don't want outside mediation he was saying that story and also the kremlin was saying earlier that they don't think that this is worthy to be discussed or put on the agenda of the g. twenty meeting i think they would like to keep it between russia and ukraine because basically when it comes to the power dynamics between the two at the moment russia is fairly confident that militarily economically and geographically it does have the advantage lori in moscow for the latest thank you three u.s. soldiers have been killed when a roadside bomb exploded in eastern afghanistan.
