8:07 pm
violence. in front of the steel, blood staned sidewalk where gunman shot a policeman. he says france has talked about growing extremism but it is time for a new discussion. >> i tout we were being really careful about that, because we talk a lot about extremism but maybe it wasn't enough. >> and john, later on today it is already friday morning here in france, later on today, we will hear from muslim leader whose are expected to speak out during friday prayers. and then don't forget, this weekend, a very large rally to the center of paris through the heart of paris down passed the scene where the shooting occurred is scheduled to take place on sunday, and tens of thousands of the french are expected to turn out for that. back to you. >> dana lewis in paris, thank you. we are learning more tonight about the suspects still on the lose. >> first of all we are learning that homeland security says that two of these suspects were on the
8:08 pm
u.s. no fly list. and as the hunt continue as fuller picture is beginning to come together thanks in part to a fresh documentary. >> walking the streets with pace then rapping and dancing wearing baggy pants and a baseball hat. a french documentary give as glimpse into the world the younger of two brothers suspected in the assault on charley. at the time he was more interesting in girls and good times than going to the mosque but he soon fell under the influence of what the film described as a radical paris. and dreamed of becoming a martyr. >> he had stopped trying to
8:09 pm
leave france for syria he said the only training he had was running in a park, and reading magging zones. he said his client was glad he had been caught, because he wasn't totally sold on the cause, something the attorney reiterated in an interview on thursday. >> i met him as he was leaving custody. and the first words he said to me was that he was relieved he had been arrested because he was petrified the fear of the idea of going to syria. >> shareef was sentenced to three years in 2008, but since he had already spent a three years leading up to the trial behind bars. he was soon released. his older brother reportedly traveled to yemen to train with al quaida, spending a few months working on small arms combat and marks manship. >> the brothers are french nationals. born in paris to algerian parents.
8:10 pm
>> as they carried out the deadly mission. >> one other note, there are reports that a # proclaiming his innocence allegedly started by hi high school classmates is trending on twitner france. now, he reportedly turned himself in after being learned that he was being sought as a suspect. >> all right, thank you very much. moving worked as a undercover operative, before that he says he recruited for so called jihadi groups at 9/11, but says his spiritual advisor
8:11 pm
talked him out f it. almost back. >> thanks for having me. >> what strikes you about the information that we have heard so far? well, of course, in the beginning there was a lot of conflicting information and this is normal when these kind of events happen, but it does seem closer to al quaida and the arabia peninsula for two reasons. there was a claim made that -- a little suspicion on the claim, but now that we foe that the older one is heed was in the yemen was training with al kade do and if you look at their inspire magazine, it is issue number think teen, it talked about this it says you don't need permission, just go and do it. and they specifically mentioned this tar toonist in particular so that's -- what the older brother the younger brother, of course, fit as profile in the sense of young came from a criminal
8:12 pm
background. pot smoker from the project. enjoy add good time. and a lot of these dies what they want to do is atone for their sinful life, and what they do is rebound into this extreme religiousty thinking it will clear it up. >> apparently french intelligence knew about these suspects. the americans say they were on a no fly list, so who could many have been done? >> you know it is very difficult, when somebody says that somebody is known to police what does that mean that means that okay, we have an idea that this is somebody that should be watched but that is not going to justify 24/7 surveillance. that is the only way you can stop somebody who is on a watch list from doing something. so you know, all that does is it helps intelligence to backtrack, and this is what we are seeing fow. going into the terrorists databases, and the fly lists and then we figure it out. but it's impossible.
8:13 pm
really unless you are following them all the time, you won't be able to stop it. >> let's walk through this again. we have talked about this before tell us about how these young men are radicalized? >> there's always a grievance and an ideology that go es with the grievance. in the case of the two brothers it was the detainee abuse. that's just one aspect of his grievance, of course the war in iraq. and all the things that were happening there. so you have grievance, and then you have ideology, so you feel angry about something what are you going to do about it. and what they are told, and i went through this, you are told that the only way that you can make things right is commit violence. is to kill the person, is to destroy and damage property, and that's how you get back at them. so grievance and ideology, and secondly if you add to that, personal issues in the person's life, so their
8:14 pm
parents died when they were young, they grew up, we don't know what their situation was if they faced racism or discrimination they probably did. this is a common problem. you take all those issues together and it's a problem that happens. >> they had weapons how do they get these kind of weapons. >> that is a very good question. you know the initial reports talked about some kind of rocket propelled grenade attack or just grenades. i still haven't seen any oh information, be uh there was a grenade attack on a number of mosques. so those kind of weapons are available in france, unfortunately. >> it is good to see you thank you very much. >> president obama visited the french empasssy in washington d.c. tonight, obama sign add condolence paying respects to the victims of charlie hebdo and the attack. he wrote we stand united with our french brothers to ensure that justice is done, and our
8:15 pm
life is defended. some of your europe's far right political movements have seized on the paris attack, and even. this week, anti-immigrant parties had been searching in the polls across europe, in germany, rallies are held almost weekly, nadine ba ba has more from berlin. >> messages from solidarity, outside the french embassy while some have offered personal tribute to the victims thoughts are also turning to what comes next. >> as well as expressing sympathy for the french national germany's government has stressed that the muslim community should not come under general suspicion but there are some signs that that's exactly what is happening. in the recent months campaigning against what it terms the islamization of the west. the latest march in german's eastern city attracted 18,000. elsewhere it's been far outnumbered. but the head of moralelies
8:16 pm
next monday. some nonmain stream parties like the alternative for germany, say that france shows the movement has a point. >> the connection is very simple. that are related to islam and islamist now they experience that will have been attacks the connection is self-evidence. you don't need to comment any further. >> from this commentator is that they are not targeting a whole religion, just a wash. >> at least the leaders of this movement to make people in europe afraid of muslims in general. >> but for deputy chair of the turkish community of germany the coming weeks will be decisive. >> on the one hand we fear
8:17 pm
that racist and pop lists will instrumentize and that they were justified their attacks on other peaceful religions of but on the other hand, germany must now take a clear sense for or against a local society while many are weary all the messages do at least offer a glimmer of home al jazeera berlin. >> abdul ma leak is in washington, d.c. welcome. i just want to ask you about the solidarity movement that we have been watching across europe, and of course in fran.
8:18 pm
how we came together as a nation after 9/11, with the kind of resilience. maude to move france forward in a more legal tarn way. >> there were isolated reports reported in france today. people who shot -- who fires shots at a muslim prayer hall, and amorphic was vandalize redirect examination you concerned about more attacks and the riots of islam phobia. >> it is natural for people to after a cease icelike this but the overwhelming response the the one we want to look at. that they are facing enough conviction that join together with others. you know, one of the great challenges i think that the
8:19 pm
french people have is a ghettoization new immigrants have come here and have not been fully integrated. and the motion that out of many one the idea that freedom of speech means there's also a responsibility to use those words wisely to bring the nation together. i remember when president bush came down to the center a day after the tragedy of 9/11 to project to the society. i would like to see the same thing among the french. and it's leadership to come and show what a new france, and a new trance that really believes in the those principles so that we can beat back the extremist. >> let me respond -- let me show you a little piece of video from last night bill mar was on jimmy kimmel show,
8:20 pm
and he said that there was support from the muslim community for an attack like this. listen. >> what they say is we don't approve violence, but when you make fun of the prophet all bets are off. >> what do you say to that. >> what do i have to say to that i have to be very clear. let's look at the response in a society like the united states are these cartoons and these types of statements have been put out when people who live in a society feel they have a stake that they have places of power they communicate with the elected officials. they don't respond with violence p something is a
8:21 pm
flash point, these type of cartoons and statements come out all the time. this is extremist individuals and maybe also as we have seen with many young people caught in america that they have some mental illness. the french people need to see that the front line in identifying these extreme individuals are ml1 c^s of the muslim community themselves. they are the ones that can say this is acting a little strange, and over hemming data that we have in the united states from the public public affairs council demonstrates that it is muslim who have the love of their nation at heart the safety of their neighborhood whose will say to authorities this person is behaving improperly, and the resources will come to bring
8:22 pm
that person back into the fold where is the point where the line is crossed where these images are meant to be provocative or become racist? >> they may be. they are definitely provocative. there is a responsibility that i believe society has be uh that doesn't justify someone going into a newsroom and killing individuals because they don't like the type of speech even if it is racist or discriminatory. that's not -- we live the a society of law and order either we go back to this medieval marrity, or maybe a religious medieval narrative that justified the violence and killing of individuals who are innocent. >> as far as i understand. the prophetic tradition and you have seen this from many sources the prophet mohamed was assaulted he was again
8:23 pm
grated in his society and our example of 13 years living as a religious minority. no response did he have, to revenge. even upon his return as a refugee. that is the model of islam. so if i see that there is something that is reprehensible, we have the problem in the united states where terry jones. burning the koran. how we overcame it, uses and christians hindus, sikhs we all gathers together, people of faith and no faith who said that this is not the type of speech that builds the kind of fabric of society that we support. >> fighting speech be speech. >> yes. >> but it is when the french people gather together with their new neighbor and say we
8:24 pm
are together and then we push the hatred back. >> it is good to see you thank you for sharing your thoughts. >> thank you. >> coming up next, snow and bitter cold accrual blow to already suffering syrian refugees. and a break through discovery what have scientists so excited about a new antibiotic.
8:25 pm
for the first time in 30 years
8:26 pm
scientists have developed a new antibiotic. jake, there are a lot of antibiotics in the world how is this one different. >> what is so exciting about this is the traditional kind of antibiotic we are used to, that you see prescribed everywhere, are really only based on 1% of the natural occurring bacteria, that we are able to develop in a lab just the 1% that is allowed to be brown this new development which uses something called the, i chip replaces that glass dish with a totally new kind of container. basically the, i chip allows you to grow hundreds of different colonies of bacteria on this one device which you can sink into a diluted soil, and it allows basically a whole new kind of bacteria to grow there in lab bra story conditions. and that has given rise to a brand new bacteria, sorry a brand new antibiotic that scientists are very very
8:27 pm
excited about because you have never been able to create it before. >> so the fear of antibiotic resistence has grown in the past few years could this be a new form of antibiotic and solve that problem. >> this new antibiotic, it attacks two different places on an individual's cell that means when you look at ran dam mutations that mutation has to effect those two places in the sell. and that means that this really changing the game. and could open up a whole new path way, which as you mentioned has been stalled for the better part of three decades.
8:28 pm
jake, thank you. >> thank you. >> well, honda has been hit with a record fine, $70 million for failing to report hundreds of claims related to accidents injuries and death. the company underreported about 1700 claims over the past decade, honda has blamed computer programming for the errors tonight at 11 eastern time, we will take a closer look at how the record fine will effect the customers still ahead, in this broadcast, the evidence in the new search for two brothers suspected in the paris massacre. plus a former editor, is response to the attack this is
8:29 pm
8:30 pm
al jazeera america i'm john. paris massacre, 90,000 french officers searched for two suspects. as charlie hebdo says it will no be silenced. >> a new judgement the line between satire and racism, we
8:31 pm
talked to a former editor at the onion. kicking the habit. >> it was awful, it was like having the flu times ten and then some, it was ugly. >> american communities battling a heroin crisis, the addicts fighting to reclaim their lives. plus deadly cold, rare and heavy snowfall, the new thousands of syrian refugees. >> tonight a man hunt in france, police are searching for two brothers accused of killing 12 people at a newspaper yesterday. this is the french mourn the lives lost. here is dana lewis in paris. >> hi, john. incredibly moving all day long people have been coming here to the scene of the shooting and bringing candles and flowers and then when you talk to them, there are really deep renewed calls for an intense depate now in the france going forward in how to deal with extremism the man hunt continues and it is
8:32 pm
intensified into the north point people now questioned by the authorities here, fine people have been detained, who are close to these brothers and they are detained for further questioning. the authorities are really focusing on this region up in the north, it is about an hour 1/2 drive from here, it is up where this gas stations robbery took place today, it is believed that these two gunman that carries out the killings here were involved in the gas stations robbery, they had the manager of the gas stations they are heavily armed they have rocket propelled green fade which is as you know are used -- this is a battlefield gear. so the concerns continue, and are probably deetens by the authorities here. and john, later on today, it is already friday morning here in france, later on today we will hear from muslim leader whose are expected to speak out during friday prayers. and then don't forget this weekend, a very large rally through the center of paris through the heart of paris
8:33 pm
down past the scene where the shooting occurred is scheduled to take place on sunday, and tens of thousands of the french are expected to turn out for that. >> dana lewis, reporting from paris. police have collected evidence from one of the cars hijacked during the escape. shoes in washington, sheila. >> hi, john, the paris police say in the car that we have seen pictures as those shots are fires when that car was recovered by police, they found moll of the cocktails and flaggings in it. they also found in that car the i.d., the national i.d. that every french citizen is blakeed to carry that led them directly to the brothers.
8:34 pm
today it emerges that the elder brother actually went to yes then, and is said to have trained in the arabian peninsula training chasm for several months whether the french knew this before yesterday, we don't know. >> so do police think the brothers were planning to continue this attack. >> they were not forced from the bidding they had their first encounters with the police after they left. there were other people in the building they could have waited there for the police to come to them. it looked like they were planning something else. the flakings -- so just very
8:35 pm
strongly so that of course is one reason why tension is so high in france. and why so many thousands of police and soldiers are part of the man hunt, looking for these two. there is much more reporting on the top of the hour. the newspaper charley ebdo says lit not be silenced by wednesday's attack. lawyers for the publication say 1 million copies copies will be printed next week. lawrence lee has more on the response to the attack. charlie hebdo is in our hearts it also means the magazine has our full support that was the offing by cartoonist for the news paper in the hours after the shootings. the next days is a deeper analysis, the flag over the
8:36 pm
presidential palace, the dove of peace with newspaper for wings. tribes by the signature maps in con presentational terms. we have to continue to pattle. it is the beginning of the battle. the france's most respected newspaper has described this. so the media here has said the spirits of the magazine, it is right to say what it wants would be financially supported by the rest of the pead yeah. when you attack, the opinion
8:37 pm
the freedom we are sturdier, and ewith would be -- we will resume and press the freedom will be stronger and the human spirits armed police and guards. journalism is under attack here, but they are fighting back. >> france says it is pressed and therefore it's democratic values have come under direct attack. the french media is going to have a very important role to play in what happens next. simultaneously to argue that people should be able to say what they want, without fear of being directly attacks while at the same time, not pandering to bigoted and particularly anti-islamic values. the staff held they are own
8:38 pm
silences. there is a lot of shock no doubt some fear. but there also seems to be a realization that there is an opportunity in all of this. to further isolate those who were killed people. whose opinions they disagree with. lawrence lee, al jazeera, in paris. >> satire like the cartoons in charlie hebdo can be funny can be truthful, and can be hurtful. but can it go too far? roxanne that has more. >> cartoonist across the u.s. and europe are using their pen to show support. in the freedom of expression it became part of how opposition to monarchy became voiced by many people so there's really very little at all that is off market, or off key, for french political illustrated satire.
8:39 pm
>> for charlie hebdo was never off limits. in 2007, a french court agreed. rejecting a lawsuit by two french muslim associations that accused the paper of insulting islam four years later, charlie hebdo and listed the prophet as it's editor and keefe soon after they were fire bombs. many believe it shouldn't be illustrated in any way some leaders say sat tarrizing him isn't freedom of expression, it is abuse. but in 2002, said no idea was too sacred to draw. >> some muslims agree i think it is for each person to make a decision what they want to represent, what kind of joke, what kind of cartoon at no
8:40 pm
time should violence ever be the response. >> in the u.s. cartoonist have faced criticism. that criticized israel it asks which is the more heinous and cowardly act uses innocence as human shields or bombing them. >> i don't think most cartoonists ever think i shouldn't go so far. the publishers sometimes say that our job is to push the boundary, and try to get a reaction. some publications printed -- to show solidarity, but many others did not lay say their decision wasn't out of fear, but out of respect for islam. a former editor of the former satirical magazine the onion and he is in our studio tonight. >> thank you for having me. >> ever have that discussion, are you going too far. >> sure. it would come up just about
8:41 pm
every week. the way we would try to gauge it was what's the target of our joke. what's the comment that we are making. are we doing a joke at the expense of the victim of the dispossessed. >> and that would be too far. >> it would be in poor taste. i don't know if there's anything that's too far. to me it is always what's the point, you have this power, you have this ability you have this audience, what are you trying to say to make the world better. >> you wrote an ad in response to this tragedy and you said you cannot kill an idea by murdering innocent people, although you can nudge it towards suicide. talk about what you meant. >> well, the biggest threat to freedom of speech posed by an act like this, to me comes within the side. how do we react, do with react with fear, do we react with anger, do we react by lashing out does that lead to policing
8:42 pm
our own thoughts or policing the thoughts or expression of others. when that started to happen, and we start to believe that there's a ink daker be it physical danger, or a culture taboo danger. to thinking a certain way then we fail to have a free society there is a discussion going on about whether or not -- what they engaged in was racism, was hurtful. what do you say to that. >> it may have been. i think flipping through some of those images you look at them and you see the service level depiction of a large nosed arab. you know, to me it is -- >> racist. >> well, i don't know -- i don't know because so much of satire is about context i certainly know people who i respect and whose opinions i weigh more heavily than my own.
8:43 pm
who have said these are racist however my opinion today, verses my. of those two days ago are worlds apart. tell me why. >> because i don't care who is offended when it comes town to human life. >> what change. >> the kill people. and these three men or these two men or whatever it was who claimed to have done this on behalf of a religion are cowardly and ultimately they are murderers they did it for themselves. and it that they don't understand satire. >> those guys certainly don't. and there are people within our own society in america who are used to that. >> so anybody who has been the victim of a satirist knows it doesn't feel good, i don't know if you have. >> not personally. >> i have, and it is no fun.
8:44 pm
but i -- i guess the discussion is, is this all about free speech in many ways in your opinion. >> it has to be. i believe in the freedom of religion as i do in freedom of speech. it is one of the key components of freedom of speech. i find people who approach those of faith with a sort of ironic point of view to be nauseating. but your freedom of religion stops exactly at the point where you are putting other people's lives in danger. >> let me show you a little bit of the interview i just did. and here is what he had to say about crossing the line between free speech and what he called racist material. they may be racist, they are definitely provocative. there is a line that i believe society has but that doesn't
8:45 pm
justify someone going into a fuse room and killing individuals because they don't like the type of speech, even if it is racist, or discriminatory. we river in a society of law and order. >> he is right. you can defend the rights of those cartoonist, to print those cartoons without defending the content of the cartoons themselveses. that's what is at the heart of pro speech. is that you don't have to like all of it. clear lisa tire has played a big role. with the rise of newspapers like "the onion," or john stewart, or stephen control bear. did satire change yesterday? did how we view satire change yesterday, do you think. >> i think if anything it became more powerful. one thing i wrote in p my
8:46 pm
column the sad parody is that the satire worked. that it cut so deeply that they responded this way the people at charlie hebdo whether you find their cartoons or in poor taste they knew that it was going to provoke this kind of a response. maybe not to this degree, i would hope not. but they knew, that was the entire point of it. >> joe, it is good to see you. now to northern nigeria where hundreds are fleeing the violence the armed group has carried out a reign of brutality, to impose a strict form of islamic law witnesses say the fighters have attacked a fan after overrunning a military base, more than 100 people were killed dozens burns to the home. ahmed has the latest.
