4:04 am
actually turned out not to be right so these discoveries have really changed the way that we think about the formation of planets and also life eventually tell jerry and we're more than 100 people arrested when students and their supporters try to march in the capital in other cities the demonstrators say december's election want to be free or fair so long as the former president's allies and military leaders retain their positions or president top of this is that if he can step down in april after massive protests of the husband for a 5th term separately at least $100.00 political prisoners including the journalist have started a hunger strike over arbitrary detentions. well those are the headlines on al-jazeera but do stay with us. murder and sell the consulate is coming up next thank you for watching.

given the that investigation was led by the turkish intelligence service who suggested that they had audio and even video evidence of what had happened inside the consulate. but publicly the turkish government played a longer game. seemingly as a way of avoiding any allegations against crown prince mohammed bin salma. it also helped distance king salma from the case. it was a drip drip strategy in which the turks used leaks as a way of responding to the initial saudi statements about the case and of dealing with the us government when it began to comment under increasing internal political pressure.

coming up in part to saudi arabia's continued denials the american president's defense of the royal family. and the turkish strategy for applying political pressure on both countries it would appear to people such as myself anyway some kind of ongoing behind the scenes negotiation with the saudis and perhaps the americans as well and secondly of course in terms of perhaps not wanting to damage the integrity or some future prosecution. on behalf of her majesty's government i apologize on reservedly historic apology for one of the darkest episodes in british intelligence and there's a growing agreement of that the libyans could be quite useful to the worst 8 years after the death of gadhafi al-jazeera world investigates western collusion with the

4:34 am
in terms of undoubtedly it would appear to people such as myself anyway some kind of ongoing behind the scenes negotiation with the saudis and the americans and secondly of course in terms of perhaps not wanting to hear some future prosecution . the turkish foreign ministry summoned the saudi ambassador demanding clarification of the incident. this triggered the 1st official saudi statement issued by the saudi consul general in istanbul on wednesday the 3rd of october it said that the consulate was monitoring media reports of the disappearance of the saudi citizen. after he left the saudi consulate in istanbul. and said the consulate was also following up and coordinating with the turkish authorities. to discover the circumstances of her show she's disappearance.

has been happen mr advani or can assert that on earth kingdom also be an authority clearly show that he has left because later all the responsibilities belong to the so there are been authorities and. you know that so they are. and their social media. army started to program. and this is a very detailed plan and action of turkish intelligence agencies they are trying to lay. the other such kind of ridiculous story fabricated stories. the 5th day after his disappearance saw the 1st news story about. a turkish
4:37 am
official told reuters that the police's initial assessment was that he showed she had been intentionally murdered at the consulate and that his body had been moved abroad. the saudi government issued a denial an official source at the saudi consulate in istanbul also denied the reuters story that quoted turkish officials saying that her show she had been killed at the consulate he denounced the source of what she called these quote unfounded accusations. put my kid. and martin johnson. and you were left. out of use for india.
4:38 am
on saturday the 6th of october mohamed invited reuters to the consulate and took them on a tour simply to show that she was not in the building he denied that she had been killed insisting that he left but admitting he couldn't prove it because the consulate surveillance cameras hadn't saved the images. for what he would have a c.c.t.v. system. doesn't record. the only reason why you have a recording system is a lack of money and this isn't something that afflicts. the shore. under the 8th of october u.s. president donald trump made his 1st public statement about the case. at the same time the saudi ambassador to the u.s. prince khalid bin selma inabilities stated publicly that allegations that he had been killed or detained by the saudi authorities were completely false and
4:39 am
unfounded. he then left for saudi arabia on the pretext of seeking clarification. for the king of saudi arabia the king firmly denied any knowledge of it. he didn't really know maybe i don't want to get it is fine but it sounded to me like maybe he should have been. here. from the photos they. wanted to give them i wouldn't say of course we know just formed by and of themselves and we know that from started speaking about him before even the saudi government with us so he wanted to give them the exit therefore they can use it know not to cover. this unfortunately was going on from inspiration. to me talking with. america. with all the
4:40 am
american dollars that the. only bit. the dollars go and make them want to china. come more in sympathy because i'm watching. them all that are going to get. a medical attack within 9 months and nothing about the markets again if you're going bust coming. on monday the 8th of october the turkish newspaper. reported that the intelligence services while on the lines in the movement of 26 cause owned by the saudi consulate in istanbul it said they wanted to determine their whereabouts on. the day for show she went missing. c.c.t.v. cameras close to the saudi consulate showed 2 cards
4:41 am
a black mercedes vito 34 c c 1865 and another miss a d salute 34 c c u 248 driving to the saudi consuls house an hour and 15 minutes after her show she had gone into the consulate. they were parked in the garage there for 3 days. on the 4th day they were taken to the car wash near the consulate where they were kept in. the program producers obtained these pictures from inside the car wash itself showing the 2 vehicles being fairly clean. turkish investigators believe that dismembered body was taken from the consulate to the consul's house in the mercedes vito. this c.c.t.v. image shows the veto outside the house before turkish police searched it. and on tuesday the 9th of october the washington post published the now famous c.c.t.v.
4:42 am
video of jamal khashoggi entering the consulate 1 pm on tuesday the 2nd of october . the 10th of october the b.b.c. reported that the turkish media had published pictures and names of those they said were members of the hit squad. the new york times also ran the story reporting the house showed she had been cut with a bone saw 2 hours after the death and that they all just to assassinate him had been issued from the highest level in saudi arabia. is so forceful. i don't. know as guys are really members of the. monster as a bodyguard for. let's 11 days after her show she's disappearance on c.b.s.'s 60 minutes donald trump was still insisting that the crown prince denied any
4:43 am
knowledge of what happened. but warned saudi arabia of serious repercussions if it were proved to her she had been killed. this is something you'll be surprised in the say that there's something really terrible and disgusting about that if that were the case so we're going to have to see we're going to get to the bottom of it and there will be severe punishment if they go on to claim that these people were acting without the authority of the saudi government then of course they can prove that by. relinquishing the diplomatic immunity of these people and actually writing a few turkey for trial but if that happens of course there is a very big risk that those people who are put on trial for his capital offense will name the people that made the decisions and that may not be convenient of course to the saudi government. on the same day as the c.b.s. trump interview the british french and german foreign ministers issued a joint statement calling for an independent investigation force the governments in
4:44 am
britain america would like to draw a line of that arrest and pretend it hasn't happened but i think public pressures and forcing the media to then force the governments in the west to actually at least in the short term appear to be taking action and the of course is in our judgment from the saudi perspective. of course we have to increase the thought because of the pressure. because the media because of the republicans and democrats and the congress but they've made a serious rocky ride to find an exit even if you increase that. so mr trump. found himself very pressed imagine he is secretary of state. to riyadh. korea you want to learn your realities they say so but i'm not really sure whether he went in order to investigate what has happened inside the king the most with your of b.-a or to
4:45 am

able to monitor the movement of saudi security stuff between the consulate and the consuls house from friday the 12th to wednesday the 17th of october. the program producers later established that this included chemical expert abdulaziz algae newbie and toxicologist khalid yards of ronnie. this was the group that was reported as having deliberately destroyed evidence of the consulate and the council's house it is possible to fully clean the premises of french governments but what you then leave is evidence that you have fully cleaned and therefore that also again is can be used and often is used as circumstantial evidence against the accused person. on saturday the 20th of october after repeated denials saudi arabia finally admitted that her show she was dead. a statement by the saudi public prosecutor announced the arrest of 18 saudis for questioning and
4:49 am
