7:02 pm
who's in istanbul so stephanie some strong words coming from the turkish president what latest developments there. yes and i think interesting because he seems to have stepped up his language somewhat from when he first address the issue yesterday as you mentioned there saying that the saudis had to prove that jamal khashoggi left the building it's all about proof now the latest developments are these that the turkish president or the turkish authorities have summoned for the second time this week the saudi ambassador so harsh words i'm sure will be discussed there and then also they have also for access to investigate the saudi calls that of course you know a diplomatic mission is under the saudi jurisdiction here in turkey but of course the chain of events that turkish officials are describing are incredibly concerning but everyone is waiting for the evidence for the facts the saudis as you mentioned deny that anything happen to the journalist also he's
7:03 pm
a man who's very well connected diplomatically across the world particularly the united states also having close ties to you know the saudi kingdom in the possed particular to king abdullah so he is a hugely significant figure and everyone waiting to hear what exactly happened but certainly the message from turkey coming out that they seem pretty confident of a horrific development that he would have been murdered inside the consulate but again we need to wait for the facts with the turkey will give us evidence of what they're basing this on or the saudis are going to give us evidence that show him leaving but just briefly also the saudis are saying that the cameras the security surveillance cameras on this heavily fortified compound did not record on that day so there is no evidence no pictures of him coming or going so what happens now. well this is the question that is it's a war of words you know and now we're having the turkish president say that they need to prove it so i think we're going to see an escalation in this until someone
7:04 pm
presents something now i think the turks have said they actually gave it forty eight hours which would essentially end tonight that they say they would present evidence to back up their claims why they believe. was murdered inside the consulate we haven't heard we haven't seen anything yet was we mentioned the saudi ambassador was summoned today does this mean that perhaps they're giving some time to present further evidence i think everything that was key there former question marks as owns or is when it comes to hard facts on such a crucial just sensitive point here and of course i think also the brazenness if this is confirmed many people will tell you that it would be outrageous to believe that something so visual as him going into the embassy visually very publicly to pick up papers that would prove his divorce because he was due to get married the next day on wednesday and then never appearing so these are the facts the fact that he has disappeared now well over
7:05 pm
a week and i think we're going to have to wait and see what evidence comes out over the next few days thank you very much indeed stephanie decker. the fate of jamal khashoggi is shining a light on the growing risks involved in journalism around the world for the past two years have seen a string of high profile journalists murdered the report. victoria marin over looks like the latest grim statistic in the dangerous world of journalism her body discovered in the bulgarian town where she was investigating the corrupts misuse of european union funds she joins the likes of daphne carolina blown up near her home in malta by a car bomb john ku's yak shot dead outside his home in slovakia and if turkey is right jamal khashoggi allegedly murdered in the saudi consulate in istanbul all of the reporters intent on exposing abuses he was silenced when impunity runs that over ninety percent most people think it's it's likely they'll get away with
7:06 pm
killing a journalist and what often happens is maybe the killer gets core but the intellectual mastermind the person who planned it the person who paid for it the person who instructed it they get away scot free and then the many of them become political leaders in different countries around the world or certainly people with a high up in business or high up in corporations. globally mexico remains the most dangerous place in the world to report from followed by all the countries in the middle east and asia where war has made journalists likely to be targeted in the same way as enemy fighters in fact the number of reporters dying has actually dropped since a peak two years ago but only because reporters are simply stopped going to places deemed too high risk of course there are some journalists who only plan flight routes they don't fly an airspace is of for example countries in the arab world if they're flying for example it's east asia they will fly by finland they will avoid at all costs any airspace whereby an airline will be ordered by government to land
7:07 pm
this is the journalist and they kidnapped him a few days ago i call the fake is the enemy of the people and they are it isn't much of a surprise that there's been virtually no international response to the bizarre disappearance of jamal khashoggi when any number of world leaders in the u.s. and elsewhere claim journalists are the enemy of the people. not only is there a dwindling political defensive free reporting but increasingly an apparent acceptance that digging for stories may result in physical harm. in the end it's about democracy whether it matters. lawrence lee al-jazeera. the world's leading climate scientists are warning of an environmental catastrophe and less urgent action is taken to tackle global warming a nobel prize winning intergovernmental panel on climate change says warming needs
7:08 pm
to be capped at one and a half degrees celsius but as it currently stands the world is set to pass this mark as early as twenty thirty again barbara has won the threats been clear and present for many years climate change caused by human activity is putting our very survival in peril now the un's climate change body says concerted action needs to come much sooner than previously thought early action to eliminate to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is possible they are options available there are signs that mitigation is going on but if this is to be achieved there's an urgent need to accelerate. three years ago at the paris climate change conference many governments gave themselves a pat on the back they pledged to take action to limit temperature rises to one point five degrees celsius above pre-industrial levels now the experts say they're failing and time is running out the i.p.c.c. says meeting that one point five degrees target requires a forty five percent cut in carbon emissions by twenty thirty and alarmingly zero
7:09 pm
net carbon emissions by twenty fifty with steep cuts in other greenhouse gases like methane it's a question of whether we can make certain decisions in the coming years where the benefit beneficiaries are going to be our children and grandchildren and the. coming generations the i.p.c.c. says by the end of this century global sea level rises would be ten centimeters lower with warming of one point five degrees compared to two degrees and the arctic is likely to be ice free in summer around once a century at one point five degrees but at least once a decade if warming reaches two degrees none of this is academic faster action will reduce flooding giving people living on the world's coasts islands and river deltas time to adapt to climate change then there are the millions affected by drought many on the african continent we need to look at climate finance and strategies that ensure that we sort of speed or climate climate action related to issues like
