of the areas affected by the earthquake and tsunami is beginning to return to some sort of normality but here thousands remain unaccounted for. peo is asking saudi arabia to support a thorough investigation into the disappearance of a journalist sidey reporter went missing last week turkish investigators believe he was murdered inside the saudi consulate in istanbul but the kingdom is denying that ever elizondo reports from washington should be because i don't want saudi journalist jamal khashoggi has been missing for a week and for the first time u.s. president donald trump has addressed it and he's not happy i am concerned about it i don't like hearing about it and hopefully that will sort itself out right now nobody knows anything about it but there's a pretty bad. stories going around i do not like the u.s.
government has mostly remained silent on reports saudi arabia might have murdered. saudi arabia denies any involvement late monday vice president mike pence tweeted deeply troubled to hear reports about saudi arabian journalist jamal khashoggi if true this is a tragic day by incidents journalists across the globe is a threat to freedom of the press and human rights the free world deserves answers the outspoken journalist was a u.s. resident and well known in the halls of power here in washington from his big platform as a columnist at the washington post where his writing was often very critical of saudi arabia's government particularly crown prince mohammed bin solomon to show his disappearance now as many people in this city demanding answers i think it's very disturbing. it's very unnerving we just need to get clear facts from both governments senator lindsey graham tweeted we agree if there was any truth to the
allegations of wrongdoing by the saudi government it would be devastating to the u.s. saudi relationship and there will be a heavy price to pay economically and otherwise it means that there's going to be reexamined nation of the relationship of aid by the military by the united states on military sales to the saudi government and there's going to be once again a distance between the united states and that government it's now clear washington has joined the chorus of coals to saudi arabia for answers on the growing international scandal disappearance gave rosendo how does it go washington. is associate professor of middle eastern politics at the university of oklahoma he says the u.s. criticism of saudi arabia won't end their relationship it will alter the impression some have of the crown prince being a progressive performer. i think there's no question that this is going to put some strain on the saudis i think they're going to have to come up with better answers
as to what happens if the relationship between mr trump and i haven't been so mine in the survey the regime has been very strong very positive has been i'm questioning with regard to human rights issues in saudi arabia or saudi arabia's doings elsewhere such as with regard to the yemen war or for example the blockade of qatar or other activities so this could change things slightly i don't think it's going to be the unraveling of the relationship as you know it's one that's existed since one nine hundred forty five and one that both countries benefit from in some sense staff at al-jazeera had taken a stand in solidarity with. they managing editor of al-jazeera english chiles trendall says the world needs answers about his disappearance. a court case has begun in the netherlands which pits the united states against iran iranian lawyers
at the international court of justice are trying to win back two billion dollars from the us government iran says the americans are violating in one thousand fifty five friendship treaty with the us which right that the us terminated days before the case began its lawyers argue iranian leaders have been coordinating worldwide attacks for decades they must be has more from tehran. it was nine hundred eighty three in the lebanese civil war had been fought for eight years in an attack the united states would blame on iran a truck bomb explosion killed two hundred forty one marines at their barracks in beirut. fast forward to two thousand and sixteen the us supreme court upheld a ruling in the case of bank markazi versus peterson the judges froze two billion dollars in iranian assets and held iran financially responsible for acts of so-called state sponsored terrorism. fights us is defending that decision at the international court of justice in the hague first iran comes to the corner with unclean hands. indeed it is a remarkable shown
a bad face that iran now seeks relief from this corner because of the outcome of the peterson proceeding which arose from iran's support for a brutal and deadly turns to time an act which the iranian leadership post in iran denied any involvement in the beirut blast but at the time celebrated the incident the us legal team linked today's iran to wars of the past you will also see the name of hassan rouhani the current president of iran who was at the time a member of the supreme security council as a representative of iran's supreme leader ayatollah khomeini. in other words mr president members of the colmes there is a continuity at the most senior levels between then and. as the americans made their case missing perhaps was historical context to the attack itself u.s. back to iraq had declared war on iran in one nine hundred eighty. lebanon was halfway through a complicated civil war exacerbated by the israeli invasion of southern lebanon. in
the weeks leading up to the barracks bombing a u.s. warship in the mediterranean sea backing israel and its proxies in lebanon launched missile strikes on neighborhoods in beirut with links to iran and syria where america is trying to paint a picture in black and white iranians are likely to see regional conflicts in shades of gray. because. america cannot put itself in the position of an international judge accuse iran in their domestic court and then condemn iran implement the ruling and confiscate iran's assets it's obvious that their evidence is illegal and the incident itself is also under question while the world court has no power to enforce decisions for iran there is more on the line than two billion dollars which this case is another chance for iran to take america to task on a world stage opening remarks by the u.s. legal team looked to be a tough act to follow lawyers representing the iranian side begin their opening remarks on wednesday. zero wrong. or sales far right presidential candidate

a radio interview i can't violate myself that way i have to continue being myself. already disturbing signs of intolerance reminiscent of a different time are emerging at this school for example parents demanded that a novel about a family that was forced to go into exile during brazil's military dictatorship be taken off the curriculum arguing it was too leftist and brazil's national university chapters dealing with human rights were found ripped out of books and thrown on the floor around the now in brazil has never been more polarized and given an unprecedented barrage of fake news on social networks international observers warn the campaign could get uglier before it's over see in human al-jazeera rio de janeiro palace to terrorise the director of the brazil institute at they would for a wilson center he says. in a winning position. i think this sort of the final surge was a bit of

sooner than previously thought early auction tooley meet to reduce greenhouse gas emissions it's 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 net carbon emissions by twenty fifty with steep cuts in other greenhouse gases like methane it's a question of whether we can make sure than. in the coming years that the benefit then officially is going to be our children and grandchildren and. coming
