between children across the world the books have been translated into two hundred languages and two hundred million books have been sold this character continues to fascinate people. tintin solves mysteries across the world from china to north america and even further afield. nineteen years after his creationism doubt that temptation is still very popular but in recent years some of the stories have become controversial with some readers saying they propagate racial stereotypes like this one tintin in congo when this was created congo was a belgian colony the story reflects a colonial vision of africa congolese people often sketched a savage is stupid or lazy tintin is portrayed as the intellectual and cultural superior this author says that l.j. wasn't racist but simply drew on the colonial materials available at the time he's
published a book that puts tintin in congo in what he calls historical context. to judge what was created in one thousand nine hundred eighty s. with today's values is artificial of course. is. just throw it away in the dustbin of history. for more than a decade this activist has waged a legal battle in belgium to have the book banned he says it's offensive and could negatively influence the way children few africans are now this book was a tool to motivate belgians to go to congo it gave them a sense of superiority so how can a book that serve to commit crimes be accepted in this way without any discussion of books like tintin in congo on acceptable and should be banned for children. congo gained independence from belgium in one nine hundred sixty for some campaign as the european nation has yet to face the brutal reality of its colonial past they
say that reassessing the impact of tintin in congo would be a small but significant step that sasha buchla al-jazeera live on and earth belgium . and that's it for me laura kyle for this news hour nickleby here in just a moment with more of the day's news for you. in the next episode of science in a golden age i'll be exploring the contributions made by scholars during the medieval islamic period in the field of mathematics. the term algebra can be traced back to the arabic word algebra we're going to the limits of modern technology

al-jazeera. and for your. vigil in this tumble one hundred days after the journalist america soji was killed in the saudi consulate. and i mean this is al jazeera live from doha also coming up in the program opposition leader if she she can be is declared the surprise when all of the presidential election in the democratic republic of congo is rival says the result
is rigged. yes that your state might pompei and meets egypt's leaders on the latest leg of his tour of the middle east. and nicolas maduro starts his second six year term on thursday but his inauguration is facing a boycott. so it's been one hundred days since saudi journalist america such he was murdered in the kingdom's consulate in istanbul people have been gathering outside the mission to remember him a drawing not to give up the fight for justice many questions remain unanswered like who gave the order for his killing and why let's take a look back at what we know jamal khashoggi was last seen alive on october the second when he entered the site a consulate three days later the turkish officials confirmed that he was killed. turkish media published images of a fifteen member saudi team that arrived in istanbul on the same day because so ji
disappeared from this point on which evidence began to mount linking saudi crown prince mohammed bin solomon to the murder now in may don't tell you but the saudis finally admitted that he was killed but said it was a result of the brule roll call advisor patani and deputy intelligence chief siri was sacked and eighteen saudis arrested but taken says it was a premeditated murder and on november tenth it said recordings from inside the consulate with several countries including the saudis the us senate passed a resolution in december holding crown prince mohammed bin someone responsible for the murder and last week saudi arabia said eleven people it believes were behind the killing of going on trial no names were released shelled as the latest now from istanbul human rights activists gathered outside there were that by amnesty
international who one of the representatives read out a statement essentially to mark the one hundred days but also to remind the wall that justice is still not being served through the perpetrators of murder it's very important for remember that. with all the outrage. it's been over the top and in a crowd as a result of this murder there were reports that the crown prince himself the key suspect in this was advised by members of the trumpet ministration that he'd be able to weather the storm that you know it would only last for two or three months maximum and after that people would forgets about it and that's why one hundred days since the marjah many of the rights activists and friends and families of folks i believe it's so important that people aren't allowed to forget that the story isn't allowed so died down. well it was paid to and your god now who's the head of the amnesty international bureau in turkey and his powerful states like the united states have been putting business ties with saudi arabia ahead of human
rights taking obviously has a responsibility because it happened here in istanbul in turkey to continue the pressure they're putting for an international u.n. investigation but it's really up to you know the most powerful states who have been really dragging their feet on this you look especially at the united states and other countries around the world which have been prioritizing diplomatic and trade links with saudi arabia iran fundamental human rights principles anyone with whom for whom there's evidence that they took part in this awful jamal khashoggi they should be investigated and we're talking about a disappearance which i'm about murder we're talking about potentially about torture these are things with you know universal jurisdiction so in any place where there is a saudi government agent who is linked to this murder then it's up to the authorities of that country to investigate them so this goes for all the people who are accused of taking part in this move to the very highest level. all right moving on to the
much awaited results from the democratic republic of congo's election but from saying the need for clarity about the outcome for a minister. says the provisional results a different from what was seen on the ground the election commission declared felix to see scanty as the winner but another opposition candidate says the results are a fraud. as this report even if you think i had announcement if you had expected one that could set the stage for the first democratic transfer of power.
