a children's dead sea most of the twenty one can fun dead are children. as stumbles prosecutor has demanded the extradition of eighteen suspects from saudi arabia over the murder of john list jamal khashoggi pressure is mounting on riyadh to reveal the location of. the journalist vanished after entering the saudi consulate in istanbul more than three weeks ago in his second address to parliament in a week the turkish president called on saudi arabia to come clean or type a new one called its early explanations childish and comical he also as you condemn to reveal the identity of its local cooperator who saudi officials say helped dispose of body. investigators will be revealing more evidence relating to the killing of. the bush of course there's other information and evidence that we are
holding and they will be used when the time comes but there's no need to rush because in the first instance the saudi officials have to explain who killed. or. the chief prosecutor. they will meet with a rude chief prosecutor will have discussions. well in all the developments jamal khashoggi his fiance is folk and publicly for the first time since his killing idea changes says she waited outside while khashoggi went into the saudi called seal it has some of what she told her television don't you think you know of in the city the as he into the consulate he was a bit worried he really was worried in fact i was more worried than him because they didn't allow me in and not only did they not allow me in the consulate wasn't the sort of place where you could just pop in and see what's happened to your
friend this is the security offices another security beyond that so it was just simply impossible for me to go in there after he winton i was continuously watching to see who emerged from the consulate we were both lorries or charles stratford is live for us now outside the saudi consulate in istanbul and charles i'm not sure if you're hearing any more information about the turkish prosecutor requesting the extradition of eighteen suspects in the killing of was this something we were expecting to happen. well certainly districts have been made consistently by president over the last week his argument is that it's because this crime was so he is despite the fact that there are issues of diplomatic community the vienna convention he's argument is it because at the very fact that it's happened in turkey means that such as those suspected for such a heinous crime must be tried here he mentioned it again today in his speech
another example of turkey really ramping up the pressure it's fair to say that day speech was certainly his most assertive yet the language says he was using that talking accusing the saudis of being irresponsible and childish and calm and cool in their side of the story basically strengthening them with but by by saying that the turks have a lot more information and they will release that when they see fit again more emphasis on the so-called collaborates of this this person who is believed to be turkish who has been a pool cheat is being looked at as being somebody who may have handled the body president or two and yet again demanding that the saudis cooperate and as you say the saudi prosecutor is jew in turkey over the we came to he's going to be meeting
with his counterpart here but the kind of language as i say the kind of language now being used by the turkish government says it is a show of just how desperate they are to get more information and the pressure they're putting on the saudis who they say are not cooperating fully and the saudi response to this so far. we've had no saudi response so far with respect to this announcement with regard to the extradition of these eighteen but of course the saudis are. that they have no idea where she is body is they have said repeatedly that crown prince mohammed bin solomon had. no role in this in this murder but of course these eighteen people who were arrested fifteen of whom we believe of the fifteen that were here in that came to turkey on the day that she died. on the day that she was killed went into the
embassy certainly a number of them did and they left the country almost the same day the evidence is certainly mounting. as we've been seeing over recent days despite the kind of p.r. disaster that saudi arabia is suffering over this crisis. and the fact that it is changed its narrative so much we saw a very seemingly very confident crown prince mohammed bin solomon at that investment conference a couple of days ago. desperately trying to bash away these these this constant pressure from the turks and from the international community thank you very much charles strafford with all the latest fan out in istanbul. now federal authorities in the u.s.
say they have arrested a person in connection with a dozen possible bomb sent a high profile critics of president donald trump the suspect was detained in the city of miami florida earlier two suspicious packages addressed to new jersey democratic senator cory booker and former director of national intelligence james clapper was intercepted well i want has correspondent kimberly joins us live now from washington any more details on this arrest. well there are details that are beginning to leak out in addition we are expecting to hear from u.s. president donald trump when he speaks shortly at a young black leadership summit that is set to kick off here at the white house any moment the president tweeting in fact that he will be addressing the ongoing investigation with regard to the mail bomb plot that has been unfolding in the united states for some three days now at the start of that so we're waiting for that and watching that very carefully in the meantime we are learning that there has been an arrest as you point out
a little bit more detail potentially about this individual not only looking at the vehicle that has been seized by the federal authorities the f.b.i. but also that he may have a previous criminal history we're told that he is a man in his fifty's and it appears by the stickers on his vehicle which have since been covered up as the federal authorities now transport this vehicle that in fact he was appears to be a supporter of donald trump given the fact that his his van was a blaze and with not just one but multiple stickers of the president and various members of the administration now in terms of the targets of these mail packages. which appear to be pipe bombs that this man allegedly was sending these two prominent democratic figures and continually there is another discovery with each day out of these packages maryam we are hearing reports of
a potential additional package that may have been sent to senator camilla harris out in california that is not confirmed but is certainly being investigated and this is not surprising given the fact that mail delivery takes some time in fact we could be hearing of these packages being received even as this arrest has been announced for days to come and overseas happening in the days leading up to the midterm elections and president trump has been making some comments about backs. yeah getting some pushback about that so that's why people are watching this very carefully and i'm just pulling up some of those tweets one of them a little bit unusual because the president was tweeting in the middle of the night essentially here in the united states in washington time about three am pushing back on the network one of the american networks cable news networks that in fact was a recipient of one of these packages saying that it's funny how he is being criticized
for this comparing it to some of the sort of the uproar in the coverage to the september eleventh attacks but even more so a more recent tweet that came about an hour or so ago where the president uses the word bomb in quotation marks almost suggesting potentially that this is some sort of false flag if you will to prevent republicans from doing well in the upcoming congressional elections so these comments particularly controversial for a number of reasons number one because people typically look to the white house and to the president in times like these of turmoil and division to try and unite the country but it appears the president is not doing that and further the suggestion that this may be in some way a manipulation of the potential election results that are to take place early next month is certainly something that many people are not finding this is sitting well with them right now so these comments by the president we are watching that very carefully the attorney general who's overseeing this federal investigation he's
also present here at the white house we're expecting to hear from the u.s. justice department potentially the attorney general jeff sessions speaking at eight hundred thirty g.m.t. as well presumably will get even more details about this case we keep an eye out for all of those developments thank you very much for now can really help from the white house. now in our other stories that we're following a search and rescue operation is underway near the dead sea in jordan off the deadly flash floods at least twenty one people were killed including thirteen children who were on a school out saying they were caught out when sudden heavy rains sent waters surging from higher ground in the jordan valley sweeping away people below civil defense officials are expecting the death toll to rise on the abdel-hamid says the school didn't have permission to be in the area when questions are being asked about this. search and rescue operations have continued throughout friday even though there was little hope since the morning to find anyone alive that said one
body was found in the afternoon bringing the total number of that so far to twenty one there are still some missing it's unclear whether their bodies might be at the morgue or still haven't been recovered from either the mountainous areas or maybe in the day now there are still many questions certainly about the a lot around the decision of the school to changes day trip from the area where they were initially supposed to go which is in another part in the other part of this country and who decided for them to come here without getting official permission from the ministry of education it has to be said that among the school children who died is also the daughter of the director of that school now king abdullah is also taking a close attention to this according to the official news agency here he will be
presiding over a meeting in which all the different sectors departments of the. civil defense and the police will be meeting trying to understand what happened this time to try to avoided next time still ahead for you on the program form a strong man makes a dramatic return to power and we're going to tell you why many sudanese are finding it difficult to bank on their economy. hello there is mostly fine forests in the southeast in parts of china at the moment lots of dry weather to be found here there is a fair amount of cloud for the west that is just drifting its way and that will just push it further northwards as we head through sunday say for some of us in chongqing there will be more in the way of cloud in the chance of seeing one or two
showers those showers luthor be affecting us in the phone northern parts of vietnam to out towards the west a measure also drawing weather to be found here is over parts of sri lanka where we've got the majority of the wet weather currently that's all part of a system that is in the bay of bengal is pushing its way westward so for the eastern coast of india there's more chance of seeing some wet weather in the coming days but as we head through the day on sunday most of us should still stay dry so rather warm for many of us at the my roots as well not poor up to thirty two and to new delhi we're up around thirty one for the arabian peninsula there's more in the way of wet weather for us there's some very heavy downpours for the southwest and possibly round the f.s.f. today that really does look very nasty and as that sinks its way southwards it'll still be giving one to pockets of or all the heavy rain as we head through the day on sunday so we're likely to see some of those showers here in doha hands in towards the west we could see some in riyadh as well to the south of that though it should stay fine and dry.

us asking to withdraw money depending on the cash we had we could either serve them or we could imagine and if we couldn't we told them to look for other ways to handle the fun and such as transfers or checks we want them to find alternatives to overcome the liquidity crisis. but that may not be easy since u.s. sanctions were lifted last year many sudanese had high hopes that the economy would improve instead getting cash from banks has become more difficult that's because sanctions weren't the only thing hurting sedan the economy so then relies on oil exports for about seventy percent of its income but that took a big hit in twenty eleven when south sudan with seventy percent of the oil reserves became a separate country the government recently announced it would tighten previously introduced us thirty measures even further in an attempt to ease the situation. of tax exemptions will be slashed except for materials needed for production some vehicles provided to officials will be withdrawn we also plan to establish
