Khashoggi mourners demand 'true justice' after Saudi disclosures

Colleagues say they want punishment for killers and ‘the authority that gave the orders’

Friends and colleagues of the Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi have resumed their vigil outside the Saudi consulate building in Istanbul where he was killed two weeks ago to mourn his death and demand those responsible be bought to “true justice”.

“This is not over. It’s just starting,” Turan Kışlakçı, the president of the Arab Turkish Media Association, said in a speech. “We want Jamal’s murderers to be punished … and punishment also for the authority that gave the orders.”

US ready to move on from Khashoggi case but will Turkey play along? | Patrick Wintour

Few believe the Saudis’ explanation. The question is whether they pretend to do so

“Here’s the smell of blood still. Not all the sweet perfumes of Arabia will sweeten this hand,” bewails Lady Macbeth as she confronts her guilt. And so with the leaders of the Saudi Arabian court as they seek to wash their hands of the murder of Jamal Khashoggi by pinning the blame for his murder on a gang of senior intelligence officers.

Donald Trump has said the Saudi explanation of Khashoggi’s death in the Saudi consulate in Istanbul is credible and insisted sanctions will not be countenanced. It is a step forward for the Saudi court to admit the murder took place. There had been two weeks of denial, including by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman himself in an interview in Bloomberg.

People's Vote march: 'more than half a million' rally for new Brexit referendum – live

Organisers say at least 500,000 have turned out for what they hope will prove to be the most important anti-Brexit demonstration since the referendum

The Observer view on the urgent need for a fresh vote on Europe

BREAKING: crowd size estimates have been revised up from 570,000 to 670,000 - 670,000 people demanding a #PeoplesVote on the Brexit deal. Please RT:

MPs have also tweeted their support for a people’s vote.

We demand a #PeoplesVote !

Absolutely fantastic to see such huge numbers at the People’s Vote March. The rally in Parliament Square starting shortly!

Remarkable turnout. Well done all involved in @peoplesvote_uk and all MPs, from all parties, who came together to do what is right for the country.

Sadiq Khan is now addressing the crowds at Parliament Square. Ahead of his platform performance he said today would become a historic moment, adding that no one had voted to “make life harder for our children and grandchildren”.

Today will go down as an historic moment in our democracy. A moment when in their thousands, people from every corner of our country and every section of our society will take to the streets – coming to make our voice heard.

The #PeoplesVote rally in Parliament is underway - we demand a #PeoplesVote on the Brexit deal:

The lies, the mistruths and the deceptions of the referendum campaign have now been exposed, and it’s clear the will of the people is changing. No one voted to leave the EU to make themselves poorer. No one voted to make life harder for our children and grandchildren. No one voted to see our NHS damaged. And no one voted for the shambles that this government has created.

Plastic recycling industry's problems costing councils up to £500,000 a year

Chinese ban on waste imports is significantly affecting UK councils’ ability to collect and recycle plastic

Major problems in the plastic recycling industry are costing local councils in England up to £500,000 extra a year, as they struggle to deal with the continuing fallout from import bans imposed by countries who are no longer able to take the UK’s waste.

A survey by the Local Government Association (LGA) revealed nearly half of councils who responded (52) say China’s ban is having a significant impact on their ability to collect and recycle plastic, due to rising costs. Fourteen councils across the country say their recycling costs have increased by an average of half a million pounds a year, in part because of rising processing charges per tonne.
