5:05 am
that are used to be dealt with in the backs and the vote patterns of inquiries across all the states i think substance of status and them of those articles to. the constitutional powers of state governments to do that and i think often sit on legal status that just that's not built and the members of those panels need to be mentioned young people need be not need to be part of those panels. and then as we move on beyond used to be offices in the police force or 'd in this case of what happened tonight we truly you know the army i involved the army people should be you know brought out mean and the prosecution process would have to begin and all the. government. get back the government would have to implement that commitment to be able to meet in the doughs for medium term a long jump there's a process event and we should be given the public weekly or monthly update on
5:06 am
what's going on that we should have a committee set up for monitoring and evaluation to make sure that all the promises that government has made can be followed through and can be seen to be implemented as time goes on in other world news the fiancee a sane saudi journalist so in the confines of saudi arabia the last accuses monic been someone of ordering his killing shepparton saving points. the 7 count civil complaint is being filed in washington d.c. against saudi crown prince mohammed bin soma and 28 other saudi nationals it alleges that the defendants formulated a conspiracy to lure journalist jamal khashoggi from the us and then kidnapped drugged torture and dismembered him at the saudi consulate in istanbul in october of 2018. 1 made being found long mordred him he i want the truth we be no please don't sponsible the budget we want to hold truth.
5:07 am
and we want accountability the lawsuit has 2 primary goals to have a u.s. court make a determination that muhammad been salma is directly responsible for murder and finally to reveal what intelligence governments around the world possess about the plot you absolutely want to get this country 1st and foremost not only from saudi arabia but also from the united states who lead the documents and recordings that are pertinent to this case because she agrees with those as the ultimate goal is to prevent the crown prince's accession to the throne no one behind if last gruesome murder sure have any role in becoming more not like robert and some of the law is ordering. the case has been declared closed in saudi arabia following the conviction of 8 unnamed defendants in september legal experts suggest that the civil suit may face complications in the u.s. especially as long as the queues remain outside the country however at the very
5:08 am
least it may make the crown prince reluctant to travel to the united states for now she ever fancy al-jazeera sourly awaits and is executive director of democracy for the arab world now it's a human rights organization that because shoji founded and has jointly find that lawsuit against the saudi crown prince. we seek damages under one claims act the torture victims section act as well as for tortious interference with surrounds contract with dawn what we hope to accomplish is a measure of justice and a measure of countability and a verdict that will clearly hold muhammad in some manner and his coconspirators liable for this murder well based on the evidence that we all know and understand and we are hopeful because so far the judiciary remains an instrument of body in our country and not subject to trump suit an audience and the sorts of measures you

might seek to pull in. the trial that took place in saudi arabia against some low level salary of fissile ziplock created in the crime was as concluded by the u.n. special approach your own executional executions a sham the saudi government tried to lay on some low level officials for these crimes without holding or even indicting the main culprits the architects of the mohammed bin some and some of the god only and general assyrian this is why resort to trial and force is inadequate and of course was an unfair trial. has been described as the most aggressive u.s. legal challenge against a tech company in decades the justice department has filed a lawsuit against google it accuses a firm of using its rocket power to keep a monopoly over search engines and advertising the complaint say is google pays billions of dollars to phone manufacturers and browsers to keep it as their default
5:10 am
search engine a company says a suit is the be fraud that i imagine a c.e.o. and co-founder of connect safely dot org a nonprofit organization focusing on online privacy and security he believes google will face a strong defense. i think one argument that they might make is to go back to 2000 i'm sorry go back in 1998 when microsoft was on the hot seat for a very similar charges and i remember specifically bill gates speaking of congress saying you know some other company could come along and unseat us and indeed that very year a to graduate students from stanford were in a garage here in palo alto building google which actually did overshadow microsoft when it came to the internet so i suspect that's the argument they'll make and i suspect the common argument will be made that that google controls the entire android platform it dominates search and that it promotes its own products and it
5:11 am
makes it difficult for other companies to compete either with search or with internet advertising there's a lot of both a legal and a political war going on between washington and silicon valley but this is a very specific lawsuit issued by the justice department claiming google is exercising monopoly power over search and over internet advertising so there is probably by far part of some support for this battle i mean the trump administration that has their gripes against google but so do democrats so i suspect this will be vigorously prosecuted and even if joe biden were to win the election i wouldn't be surprised if his justice department continued the suit still ahead on al jazeera muslims in front say they feel they're being targeted after the teacher was beheaded for showing the wrong tools of the prophet muhammad. to be biden. and probably for me it would be john household's smith says presidential contenders take the fight of the white house to the suburbs.

like on this unit the conditions are not in place to reopen and address the migration crisis it could be the most critical phase of the past 5 years and we must assess our capacity to attend to them as. when we already have 2000000 venezuelans in the country a close border is also impacting venezuelans who have lost work and are trying to go home their numbers have decreased in recent weeks some 900 so still sheltered daily in socially distanced camps in this way less allowing less than 200 enter on any given day the u.n. refugee agency says migrants are facing even worse humanitarian conditions then before defend them ik i guess we need to respond to the reality on the ground it would be an error not to address these growing needs where working with the government to generate that response. from the swelling crisis was already one of the worst in the world depend pushing migrants and those struggling to help closer

to the breaking point listen to them and just. but the u.s. presidential election just 2 weeks away donald trump and his democratic rival joe biden are trying to win over the undecided voters and they also have their eye on those who live in the suburbs where kate 6 rain 2016 and he came close to winning minnesota from white john hendren reports. of the suburbs were rolling lawns lead to expensive homes where scenic views meet shops quaint and common close to culture far enough from squalor idyllic havens of safety and middle income splendor but don't let the leafy tranquility fool you divisions here run deep these are the battlegrounds where the u.s. election will be decided. in suburban minnesota

a short commute from minneapolis george floyd's death under a police officer's need led to raucous protests that divided a nation in many households. and probably for me it would be trying i like the idea of a republican socialism and that seems to be the direction of the democrats and i think character is an important quality and. i think also we need someone who can unify and not divide it why president donald trump seeks to instill fear into the suburban heart if you elected this guy the suburbs would be overwhelmed with violence and crime and why joe biden is striking back how many suburbs will be burned in wildfires how many suburban neighborhoods will have been flooded out how many suburbs will have been blown away. super storms. here one voter's crisis of law and order is another's calamity of social injustice and i
5:28 am
have 100 percent support for the protesters and i've been doing my best to stay as active and be as involved as i can with it when trump won the suburbs in 2016 he won the election the math of midwestern battleground states is pretty simple the city is lean heavily toward democrats the rural areas lean heavily toward republicans most of these states will be decided in the suburbs the battlegrounds within the battleground states in pennsylvania michigan and wisconsin trump won the suburbs and narrowly won those states he won the suburbs here outside minneapolis to narrowly lost this state but there are signs of trouble for trump here white women friends and college educated women. in many ways so a lot of the suburbs. overall they are moving away at least. here in the land of 10000 lakes trump is now lagging biden in the polls but trump supporters know he

5:30 am
a kiss than like a landing at basically it has this this like sampling head on the end of a long robotic arm and it just came down and pushed that against the asteroid rubble and then touched it for about 10 seconds and then sort of back slowly away from the asteroid so it's pretty pretty amazing one of the big goals just basically i mean it did like these sorts of asteroids are sort of left over just just like building blocks from the big chunks that that belong together to actually make earth and the other planets long ago so if you study what they're made of like really precisely you can kind of learn a lot about what what the early solar system looked like how the planets came together and so on but that as i was just just kind of mentioning that there are a lot of scientists who think that that getting pummeled by and lots of asteroids like these 2 long ago actually brought a lot of water to worth and a lot of liquor get molecules that help life get going here on earth so yeah actually looking to see what these asteroids are made of and and like how many a sort of like are going to compensate on their surface couldn't form.
