1:05 pm
but as news spread of police hitting a protester with a live round it wasn't fear we saw will go on. probably one of the borough. or work of art of the mountains of whom we moved to the time ground under guard my daughter grew up in purgatory know something was not. this was an escalation that many had long feed but few could believe one woman so irate she confronted police without face must police unflinching in their response. at a gas canister in their already missing our cameraman. protestors tell us the shooting only strengthens their resolve to take to the streets i'm afraid but it will push push me to go. back to stand up to fight for him. that
1:06 pm
river sounding. a communist party trying to force before a free place to works. their toddlers i was shocked but i think it's will to happen in one day because chinese government they want to store oh boy. police say the officer fired the shots because he feared for his life but protesters see it differently they gathered outside a police station into the early hours of the morning telling abuse at the offices and signed as hong kong braces for another dark capta in its protest movement. surely you can see their emotions really running very high after that violent today what can you tell us about the student who was shot. a few details are known about the protest and so far we know that he is currently in hospital he's said to be in a stable condition off to receiving that bullet wound to the chest we've heard that
1:07 pm
he is 18 years old and is a high school students now the image is that bullet being fired went viral here in hong kong very quickly spreading across the protestors on the streets what they show is a very violent scuffle between a number of protesters and police we saw the police getting injured we saw that the protesters carrying poles hitting the police then that shot was fired at very close range now police have said that that was in self-defense the officer himself apparently believed that his life was a risk and the life of his colleagues police were given a statement saying that the shooting was lawful and in the court and with guidelines a lot of people here are thinking though why that bullet was necessary as i've said we we've seen multiple ways that police have been able to disperse protesters in the past pepper sprayed tear gas rubber bullets a lot of people here want to know why. exactly but it was at

1:09 pm
iranian influence on the government. it has been exactly one year since the saudi journalist jamal khashoggi was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul turkey a u.n. investigation found what it called credible evidence linking saudi crown prince mohammed bin selma to the killing but a year later none of the masterminds has been brought to justice for the murder and western partners seem to have forgiven saudi arabia. a c.c.t.v. camera captured the last images of journalist jamal khashoggi he was walking into the saudi consulate in istanbul where he would be brutally murdered what happened inside this building shocked the world. body is believed to have been dismembered and disposed of his remains have never been found. jamal khashoggi was an outspoken critic of the saudi leadership since 2017 he had lived in self-imposed exile in the
1:10 pm
u.s. and was a columnist for the washington post. after he was murdered saudi arabia initially hampered turkey's efforts to investigate but eventually riyadh admitted she had died in the consulate the state television spoke of an argument that had broken out with shock she being killed in the ensuing brawl. but the consulate building had been bugged by turkish intelligence that meant ankara had audiobook orderings of exactly what happened turkey also released c.c.t.v. footage of 15 saudi government agents arriving any stumble on the day of the killing and leaving just hours later among them a top advisor to saudi crown prince mohammed bin salmond despite the smiles the crown prince was coming under growing pressure as western allies asked questions in salman denied all involvement in the killing blaming wrote elements instead riyadh
1:11 pm
put 11 people on trial for the murder but a un inquiry later found what it called credible evidence linking the crown prince to the killing the u.n. official behind that report told t w riyadh's claim that it was a rogue operation doesn't hold water if it was conducted and on by state official who said. it created live upon state and state resources the team that came into. a private shed with diplomatic clearance. the murder global condemnation the u.s. and many european nations slap sanctions on some saudi officials but washington was reluctant to take things further than in danger weapons sales to riyadh $450000000000.00 worth of things ordered from a very rich country saudi arabia. 600000 jobs maybe more of them.
1:12 pm
really very hurtful to this country of which we're not going to use now one year on from jamal khashoggi is death it's almost as if nothing happened relations between saudi arabia and its western allies have largely normalized. well friends and rights activists are holding a memorial in istanbul outside the saudi consulate that's the place where to mock killed and our correspondent yulia han is there for us can you tell us what's been happening where you are. while there is a memorial service for mr the show just a little further away from where i am it started at 114 local time marking the moment the right to walks into the building right behind the saudi consulate a year ago and we all know he never emerged today the building is basically sealed
1:13 pm
off the lot of police and security around as according to my information no one from the saudi state is present here today it's mostly human rights activists other journalists friends of mr the shock she ended his fiance who came together today to calm the memory mr bush. and to have what they call is a moment of silence because they say this is exactly what his killers wanted to silence a man a journalist who had always refused to be silent who openly criticized the saudi kingdom one of the speakers today is the. midst of a fiance it's a particularly painful day for her because she doesn't have a grave to wisit his body as you mentioned has still not been found but later she is going to unveil a memorial statue in his name it's made from white marble i had a brief look at it and it reminded me actually of
1:14 pm
a great stone so this is going to stay here very close to the saudi consulate as a reminder of what happened last year in this building you live this is a story as we remember escalated very quickly and you were following it from the beginning can you give us an idea of what it was like after that consulate a year ago. well you know the moment he walked into the building on october 2nd last year basically a crime story unfold that that many of us journalists who have been following the events saw it was to horror of the horrible horrific to be true actually a lot of crime scene investigators were here and then gruesome details of the investigation surfaced as we know today he was suffocated with a plastic bag and then his body was dismembered by a forensic doctor all of this happened you have to know that while his fiancee had teach agenda's was waiting outside the consulate because he was just going in there
1:15 pm
to get some documents for the 2 of them to get married later we spoke to a teacher earlier this week she's still very shocked about what happened let's listen. no one could have imagined that the hatred for jamal could go so far that it would get him to. himself wouldn't afonso. he was a problem for the saudi rulers he was someone who said things they didn't want to hear. you hear what can you tell us about the state of the investigation. well you know the u.n. investigation and the turkish investigation both concluded that this is likely an extrajudicial execution a hit job and they're all credible to mohamed bin to the highest levels of the saudi leadership the saudis have long denied any involvement and mohammed mohammed
1:16 pm
bin some on earlier this week actually said in a t.v. interview that he's now accepting responsibility for the killing but he said he didn't order it we also asked the teacher about what she thinks about these remarks by mohamed bin some and let's listen to her. sounds like a political maneuver to me these statements made at this particular time seem like an attempt to quell pressure from the public mohammed bin soundman said he accepts responsibility but at the same time he says he didn't know anything about it and in doing so he's trying to dodge responsibility. so we can see there for his fiance this is completely unresolved but why would jamal khashoggi have been considered such a threat by the saudis. well jim was a royal family inside a tent critic he left for the u.s. in 2017 he was a regular contributor to the washington post
1:17 pm
a well known blogger somebody who openly criticize human rights violations in saudi arabia a well known mind envoys across the region and that potentially has gotten him into all of these troubles the people here clearly clearly say that his message today is louder than ever that the fact that they killed him actually turned him into a larger symbol for press freedom around the world our correspondent reporting for us there outside of the saudi consulate in istanbul thank you. let's return now to our top story british prime minister boris johnson addressing his conservative party's annual conference in the northern english city of manchester he's expected to set out what he's calling his final offer to brussels on a deal to leave the european union and those proposals will be officially conveyed to brussels later this afternoon one nation but touch conservative government and
1:18 pm
figure to be bigger to the if not literally said. all right let's bring in our correspondents are covering the story for us berkut mass is at that party conference in manchester and this is covering all the reactions in brussels a bigot let's start with you tell us more about what we've heard from boris johnson and also the so-called final offer to the european union. well 1st of all so really it was pretty much trying to be a rallying cry for the troops here in manchester the party faithful that are really still very much behind bars johnson and his breakfast strategy now he hasn't really flashed out in detail what his final offer is in this speech he has mentioned a few details he said that there will be no checks near. the border the crucial thing of course in older because the actions with bus presses is still the question of the irish border and how that will be handled in the future but he
1:19 pm
also said that the problems in business is that both sides will be protected and dug elation is going to continue as it is so it seems a little bit like he was promising all things to all people but very much trying to get his message not just to brussels but also here to the audience and mention stuff that this is trade the final offer he is shuttling to walk out of negotiations even if there is no deal also the audience and i think this is the movement where he got the most of close always ready for a no deal and everybody cheered yes very telling. and we see the prime minister has wrapped up a species shaking hands here at the conservative party conference in manchester garrick i want to come to you in brussels that we haven't heard all of the details as birkett said but these proposals will officially be sent to the e.u. this afternoon how do you think brussels is likely to react when we front here in brussels that there will be a phone call between jungle juncker and the british prime minister that those
1:20 pm
details of course we're working to hear them here in brussels the officials really waiting for those plans we've already launched that the irish government does not seem to be excited about what they have learned about the plan we still have to find out whether that is actually whether they had know all the details of that so-called compromise as boris johnson has said that was something where red raised a lot of eyebrows here here in brussels if that it will be a compromise that is practical that is workable with a compromise that all the negotiators who have worked for years on this issue now all of the i respect stop so the guarantee that there will be no hard border between the republic of our the northern ireland if a solution that nobody has thought of that the by british prime minister now puts on the table that will be really interesting to see if the paper with all the details contains anything like that carrot how much of
1:21 pm
a say will ireland actually have here on this latest proposal. i think arlen has a huge say say in this to the extent that so far the 28 member states of the you or rather in that case the 27 have been totally united so don't expect drama me or france in the face of a hard bracks it's to press arlen to accept anything where island sees a danger to that open border to that one oil and economy that they have and the moment that is something i've talked to a number of officials here a rock solid support for the irish government if they don't give a thumbs up for that supposed compromise it will not be done all right and as those delegates are milling out of the hall there in manchester very good what do you think we can take away from what we heard from boris johnson at this conference today. well i found it interesting i didn't think he was in top form as i've experience even at
1:22 pm
a party conference is the last years where he was really. very charismatic very enthusiastic and audience really seared him and they were really he was almost hailed as a savior i think the mood was a little bit more muted here yes people are behind him yes they are willing to go with him and they want breaks it down which is what he's saying he's saying all along he wants to get out at the end of it to become what may and he's reiterating that again today but also there is a sad and weariness and i'm maybe a little bit of for shed doing that people are not quite sure that it's going to work out the way that they had expected conservative party members of cause most of them bricks it is so well let's wait and see what happens really at the end of october and how the mood is that here in the country right analysis from our correspondent in manchester and garrick in brussels thank you.
