watching al-jazeera life from a headquarters in doha i'm sorry navigator also ahead a diplomatic push the u.s. sends a special envoy to the middle east following the latest build up of tension with iran. kenyon court finds 3 men guilty in the guerilla university attack that killed 148 people in 2015. an electric car great air race so we look at the challenge to go green in our sky. the state of saudi arabia is to blame for the murder of journalist. that's the clear conclusion from a lead thing by the un special rapporteur i guess calmar who's calling for an international investigation her report describes hostile she's deaf inside the saudi consulate in istanbul last october as an extra judicial killing she says the
8:50 am
individual responsibility of saudi officials at the highest level including crown prince mohammed bin said a man needs to be investigated and the report details taped conversations about body disposal in the moments before she's a rival at the consulate she says the killing is an international crime with universal jurisdiction and she's urging a criminal inquiry by the united nations or earlier my colleague folly about to both spoke exclusively to agnes callum our. the state of saudi arabia is 1st and foremost responsible for for the murder i think it's important to and cyst that the executor of mr casually was a killing by as a state we have focused extensively on the identity of various individuals that where involved in the commission of the crime but 1st and foremost we must insist
8:51 am
in putting the responsibility of the killing tools the state of saudi arabia it must bear responsibility for that killing and we must take action as a state to repay over killing what did you learn in these recordings about the way jamal has showed g.'s body was disposed of because his remains have still not been found the recordings needs to be interpreted they do not tell a very straightforward story. why towards dawn to use body i cannot deduct probably the sounds i have a hope that i can infer from the sound that something was done based on the technique or. knowledge of the various people i have consented to it is when possible that mr cashel greenwald's 1st put that he was 1st injected with something and then that he was actually asphyxiated weezer plastic bag this is
8:52 am
the possibility the nature and the extent of the dismemberment of these bodies i cannot comment upon it's not possible allow me to add one thing when at least this was a recording is concerned that i have heard when mr cashel loses consciousness there is no evidence of the people that are there in the room attempting to take care of him attempting to rescue city came the 10. i think to do something that to me points to the fact that the notion that there is an accident that the next didn't happen doesn't quite match what i have heard there is nor tent to to do something and there is no scream so or. any expression of of fear over what's happening you will be presenting this

8:55 am
prosecuted as soon as possible turkey seems to be now waiting to see what kind of next step that the saudi government will take if the saudis are willing to for further cooperation with the turkish government that could be a new chapter of the saudis decide not to cooperate i think the turkish government is going to press ahead for the need for an international criminal investigation to start as soon as possible while turkish president rajapaksa berto on saudi arabia will pay a price for a hotshot jeans murder. in the report the un says saudis are definitely guilty and they definitely had knowledge about this matter the also see the saudi stance in turkey was wrong pay the price for this they will be held accountable for. her spoken to al-jazeera she says the world has been left in the dark about saudi arabia's investigation. when it comes to the
8:56 am
comments from beer and other saudi officials that the u.n. report did not come with anything new i would like to ask them why they didn't put the perpetrators on public trial and why you didn't hold them accountable why can't the saudis be more open and provide us with details of the investigation and the so-called trial that is happening behind closed doors well john yearwood is an executive board member of the international press institute and chief executive of the year wood media group he says the report is an important 1st step. now i think it's up to the human rights council it's up to the security council and indeed it's up to the security sector general himself to now move the ball and have a proper criminal investigation and then move the whole the the various individuals in saudi arabia responsible for the execution of
8:57 am
a very very good journalist i don't expect a tremendous amount coming in the short term from the white house but i think that there is an opportunity for members of congress to weigh in and they can then pressure the white house to act in this case because if the white house does not do anything the saudis would think that what they did was was normal and what they think what they did was justifiable it's incredibly important that everyone from even as high as the crown prince be held responsible for the execution of jamal conservate the u.s. state department says it's looking closely at the report and that it supports kalam mars mission to investigate extra judicial summary or arbitrary executions heightism castro has more from washington d.c. . well the statement from the u.s. state department that was just released said that the saudi government should
8:58 am
continue to ascertain all the facts and hold those responsible for the murder accountable and that if additional facts come to light the u.s. will consider further measures what's left out of this though is the international of knowledge meant of this trial happening in saudi arabia as lacking transparency the 11 defendants are not even named and so it's unclear exactly how these additional facts would come to light and that has led to frustration which is a continuation of what members of congress have been expressing since the cia concluded that n.b.s. ordered the killing of jamal khashoggi senator lindsey graham who is a supporter of donald trump has broken with the president on this issue. well here's where on that lot of this is classified i've been briefed by the agencies involved there's 0 doubt moment and this was orchestrated by the n.b.a.'s inner
8:59 am
circle approved by him done with his knowledge and it's part of the way he does business. and in december senator graham was among those who pushed through a senate resolution that named n.b.s. as responsible for the killing of jamal khashoggi but as far as sanctions go no tangible consequences have been suffered by m.p.'s or saudi arabia over the killing of jamal khashoggi with trump so far still mom in response to the u.n. reports continuing with the defense of saudi arabia as an important u.s. ally and the relationship based on commerce and military strategy between the 2 nations too valuable in the view of the administration to jeopardize over the killing of the sternest the u.n. secretary general agrees there needs to be a full transparent investigation into the killing but his spokesman says on sunday the terrorist doesn't have the authority to launch it himself things baze has more
9:00 am
from the united nations special rapporteur agnes kalama says she's not happy with the progress of the saudi investigation she says one of the best courses of action would be through the u.n. secretary general until you get terrorists to set up a criminal investigation that's not going to happen though just listen to his official spokes person the secretary general as we've been saying does not have the power or the authority to launch criminal investigations without a mandate from a competent into a governmental body. the special ruffle to is an eminent legal expert the secretary general is not a lawyer there are other lawyers who agree with her he has the power to do this what is icing this is his no one doubts and correlate with. credentials this is from our. this is the secretary its position this is the secretary general's but they say they stole my.
