. >> announcer: this is al jazeera. hello there, welcome to the newshour, good to have you with us. here in doha with the top stories. in the next 60 minutes - turks vote in the second parliamentary election in five months amid violence and unrest al-shabab attacks a hotel in somali's capital killing at least 15 people russian and egyptian investigators begin examining
the black boxes from the crashed russian airliner. al jazeera gains rare access to bases in afghanistan where children are recruited to fight for i.s.i.l. so, voters in turkey are at the polls for the second time since june. the general election is a challenge for the a.k. party of recep tayyip erdogan. it failed to win enough seats in the poll and couldn't form a majority government. we have correspondents covering the story. we go to the south-east and to a polling station in istanbul. let's start with you omar, turks are divided. what is the mood there, and what does it mean for the a.k. party? >> well, people are worried that
the mood of the voters that we spoke to here, they are talking about their political stability of turkey is at stake. we know that turkey is polarized - always has been polarized in location, it's not new for the a.k. party. the results, i think, will be crucial to the a.k. party, and i think they'll be watching it closely. if we get a repeat of the june elections, which means the a.k. party lost the majority and the ability to form a government on its own, they have to reach out to their rivals, if you will. chb, the left of c.h.p. the republican people party, the nationalist movement which is the right wing of turkish politics. now, what it also means, if they lost the ability to form a government. i think there'll be internal
changes within the party, because they lost their majority and if they lose again in this election that means they'll have to take drastic steps to change their own politics to win the confidence of voters in this country omar, thank you for that. omar salah in istanbul. security is one of the main issues for voters, let's look at the violence turkey faced in the last poll. july 20th, '34 were killed in a suicide attack, at a gathering of n.g.o.s on a town on the border with syria. september 6th, '16 soldiers were killed in a bomb attack in daglish, on the border with iraq. two days later in the nearby city, an attack on a police minivan left 10 dead. on october the 10th in ankara, the greatest loss of life, 102
died in a double suicide bomb attack targetting a peace rally. hundreds more died in fighting between turkish forces and the turkish armed group, p.k.k. 145 security personnel have been killed. turkish military personnel say 340 p.k.k. fighters have been killed. in total, over 640 people lost their lives in violence across turkey in four months. let's go to bernard smith in south-eastern turkey. so, bernard, how is that security situation effecting the kurdish area and the hopes of the kurdish party, the h.d.p. . >> it's not affected the turn out party. and nominations are that 70% that are eligible have cast their vote. a higher turn out is expected nationally in june, and it was more than 80%. this is a main place where it
went wrong for the akp in june. previously they relied on the party of kurdish groups. they left, and gave the vote to the hkd. there was many reasons, one of them a perception that the akp had abandoned the kurdish peace protest and was not interested in the kurdish peace interests. they threw their support and got the h.d.p. into parliament. since then, if anything, perhaps support for the h.d.p. grew a little bit. the overall results are not expected to change. according to the polls. the h.d.p. may do better. yes, there are kurds that are disappointed with the hdk and
many that have helped stop the violence. many h.d.p. voters are sticking with them. you have seen the a.k. party has not done a lot to try to win back the lost h.d.p. voters, instead, the a.k. party is trying to get the nationalist vote on the right of the political spectrum thank you for that. bernard smith in diab la there al-shabab fighters claim responsibility for attacking a hotel in somali. 15 were killed in federica mogherini. the hotel is popular with politicians and one minister is among the dead. >> reporter: a suicide bomber detonates explosives inside a hotel. outside a car was on fire, packed with explosives and used to blast into the compound. they stormed the hotel itself.
somali soldiers were called in to recapture the hotel. >> it's clear, if you look at the event in the past few months, al-shabab has the capability of organising terrorist attacks. it's unfortunate that they still occur sporadically, over all the government's forces are clearly in the offensive, and have the momentum. >> reporter: this hotel is popular with somali politicians, a current and former member of parliament is among the dead. senior government journalists and official was killed. one mp called the attack a dark day for somali. they operate in somali and neighbouring countries, they claimed responsibility. in april fighters from the group killed 147 people in an attack
on a university college in kenya. in september 2013, al-shabab fighters stormed the westgate shopping mall in nairobi, killing 67 people. somali has been devastated by decades of civil unrest. four years ago somali's government pushed al-shabab out of the city, with the help of african union soldiers. attacks like this showed somali's government and supporters have much more work to do. i'm joined in the studio by a professor in international relations in qatar university. good to have you with us. give us an assessment of the security situation in somali. can somali troops and amason da - african union troops - deal with al-shabab. >> first i have to offer my
condolences to the people that lost their lives. after that, in terms of the capacity of the government, it's obvious that they could not protect the hotel in doesn't federica mogherini. from this attack. these types of attacks. >> we've heard from government sources that they are winning the battle against al-shabab. is that not the case. well when you look at things from their perspective. they have been gaining territories. that has never denied the capacity of al-shabab to fight whenever they want to, and when they want to. this is a big problem. it shows one thing, still, that the security forces are week, and they need to improve their attacks and strategies in dealing with such attacks. that is clear. >> you have a situation where yet again government officials
and m.p.s are the ones targeted. i mean, this must be extremely destabilizing for a government trying to run a country. >> well, for now, particularly when you look at the caliber of people who were killed in this attack, it's obviously a big loss, and particularly the government strategy to contain al-shabab. at least suffering the defeat momentarily. that does not mean that they cannot recover from it. i think the government - there's no by the way, no alternative, no other way to go about it. it's not an alternative. foreign fighters is not an alternative. the only way to go about it is to strengthen and empower the somali government, forcing us to deal with al-shabab and any other moves to destabilize the country. there's another alternative as far as i'm concerned. that said, it was a big failure,
security failure on the part of the government. they have to accept that and do something about it. >> particularly since they are now trying to hammer out a political process, which will take place in 2016. we don't know what form the election will take, but whatever it is, it's going to be crucial for somali's progress. >> over all, there was slow progress in the area of politics and security. in 2012, the expectation was come four years, there'll be a significant progress in these two fronts. unfortunately, that was not the case, there is progress, but very slow progress in both areas. we are not going to the polls to elect the government. there'll be a deal made with them, that is where it's heading. it's an election process. and that could be more legitimate than what they have at the moment. and in terms of security, after
so many years, we are still talking about the heart of federica mogherini, is under attack. again, that shows that of course there was some progress, but the progress is not what anyone would like is to be and it's heart-breaking that you knew some of the people caught up in the attack. we know that al-shabab in july warned civilians to move away from places used by government officials, that suggests we'll see more attacks. >> it's been very strategic since the days of losing it in federica mogherini -- in federica mogherini and two of the people -- mogadishu, and there has been two people from the military killed today. this has ban the case since they left mogadishu, that they left
the place. i think that is the strategy even though for the last while they were combining that strategy of attacking and taking the forces. them and others. what we can expect is similar attacks. >> thank you very much for the analysis there. here in the studio. >> thank you very much investigators from russia and egypt begin to examine the black boxes from the sinai peninsula. russia is observing a day of mourning for the 224 people killed when the metro jet airbus crashed after take off from sharm el sheikh. flowers have been left at the airport where they were due to land. investigators say the pilot didn't send a distress call. >> reporter: what remain of the charter flight was strewn in pieces, coming down near an
egyptian air force. the search and rescue teams needed little time to determine that no one survive the impacts. >> what will determine what happened is the analysis of black box data and expert deductions. up until this point. there's indications that nothing happened. all we can say is that it happened due to technical difficulties and the team of experts are the ones that proved or denied this. >> relatives are desperate for news. >> they told us the landing will be at 11:40. my son, his wife and daughter, their daughter is 10 months old. >> translation: i'm waiting for the person if love. we spoke through the internet yesterday. they were supposed to board the plane. i checked the radar, everything seemed to be fine. around 11:30 i came here.
when i came i couldn't find the flight on the screen. >> reporter: the air bus seen here in russia 11 days ago was operated by metro jet. and was flying over the red see from sharm el sheikh. 20 minutes after takeoff it dropped out of cruising altitude and disappeared from radar. the egyptian and russian authorities say they don't believe the aircraft was targeted, and flew over an area. russia declared a day of mourning on sunday, and a show of solidarity with the victims and with their families. peter is live at st. petersburg airport. and bring us up to date with the late is on the investigation, because it's hoped that those black boxes will provide some answers. >> answers are needed. the three aircraft arrived in
cairo and have gone out to the crash side. the debris field is huge. it's 30 square kilometres, that suggests something dramatic happened to the aircraft, and we know there was no warning from the flight deck. you can draw conclusions from that. 153 bodies have been discovered. they were preparing to remove them and fly them back for here, to petersburg during the night. and they'll be taken to a local mortuary. the cockpit of the plane is in good condition regarding what had happened, and the flight boxes that have been recovered. virtually intact, with little damage. but the fallout from the crash continues. emirate airlines is the latest airline to refuse to fly. not to fly over sinai, they are
joining air france and lufthansa in that decision that was made yesterday. >> russia, of course, a country in mourning, particularly there at st. petersburg, where the plane was due to land. >> that's right. the airport here behind me, there's a steady stream of people bringing in toys, flowers, candles, at a makeshift shrine just outside the arrivals, the arrivals gate. taxi companies in petersburg offering transport from the city center. allowing the people to be expressed. their condolences and grief. later in the day. at the beginning of the evening outside the winter palace, which was a spectacular setting, tens of thousands were expected to gather for a vigil to mark a solemn day of mourning.
>> thank you for that. peter sharp there in st. petersburg. >> still here on the al jazeera newshour. israeli soldiers is suspended for telling palestinians in the occupied west bank this they'd be gassed until they died. kenya puts to a lump of coal solving two problems at once new zealand lifts the rugby world cup for a third time in the finals. in london i.s.i.l. fighters say they are taking more territory from the taliban in nearby afghanistan. al jazeera gained rare access to areas held by the armed group.
reports on how they are recruiting children to fight for them. >> translation: another generation of our grandchildren are being brain washed. this is the rest of the province, and those giving reference pledged allegiance to islamic state of iraq and levant. al jazeera has been given rare access to the front lines in eastern afghanistan, where i.s.i.l. says it's gaining ground. they seem to be preparing to stay, as their recruitment is aimed at the young. i.s.i.l. fighters seem comfortable in the village life. there is a fear of drone strikes, but their biggest enemy is the afghan taliban. >> thank god there's a scala fat. that's why we pledge allegiance. >> taliban fighter are defending territory from the military and
from gunmen. >> translation: we don't agree with the brothers who want i.s.i.l. in afghanistan. the taliban are already here. there's no need. why would you join them al jazeera was given access to two of the group's bases. the numbers don't appear to be large, but more are in hiding. >> there are many fighters all over the province, a large number of foreign fighters come from saudi arabia and europe. they are here, but can't talk face to face. >> these 13 and 17-year-olds are ready to become suicide bombers. they say they have been trained by foreigners and don't fear giving up their lives. their declared target is a commander, a former governor, notorious for his ruthlessness. heed suicide attackers don't scare him. civilians who have seen war for decades are afraid of violence.

as his own. the third thing that i learnt from him, most important, in this complex and challenging moment, is he refused to give up his dream of peace in the face of violence. >> in the united states tornados, heavy rain and flood battered texas, almost 7 centimetres of rain fell in an hour. six people died in storms over the past week. >> and cyclone chappala is expected to make landfall along the coast monday or tuesday. chapala is believed to be the strongest tropical system recorded in the arabian see. >> let's get the latest on the cyclone with rob. what is going on. >> it's talked about as a major storm. records are hard to get hold of in this part of the world.
the indians recorded going back to 1891. in that 125 years, two cyclones came close to the mouth of aden, that shows you how rare it is, to have something this size this far south heading west. this is what it's doing, it was close to the point where the satellite can't distinguish it. it's active. going down to category 3. to get in the close is a major thing. these are the stats. it's gusting to 240 k/hr, and winds blow 200, and is moving west wards, about 13 k/hr, a reasonable speed, not too fast, not to slow, if it keeps going, it will be in the middle of the yemeni coast, near the town of alucala, which, as far as i can tell has never recorded a landing. it's generating waves of nine
meters. storm surge is up to 3 meters and wane up to 400, if any of this comes near the coast, it will be def fating. mucala 300,000 live here, and they are vulnerable to the storm surge and the rain sierra leone could be a week away from being declared ebola free. 4,000 died from the violence. for those that survived, the battle is not over yet. we have more from freetown. >> reporter: this person is an ebola survivor, she contracted the disease whilst caring for her mother another ebola victim. her bother died. her mother said she's grateful to be alive. her health is bad. getting through day-to-day activities is a challenge. >> it's heavy, i can feel them. >> reporter: along with the pain

ebola face can be traumatic. many are shunned by their own families. >> the situation is really, really dire. some have lost their source of livelihood. some have a lot of psychosocial problems that need attention. otherwise it will just compound the problem. >> reporter: she hopes treatment will improve her eyesight, but the hardest part is not having her mother around any more. the loss of a loved one, one of the challenges thousands of survivors of the virus in west africa have to deal with coming up on the newshour - one more step towards democracy in myanmar as voters compare for the first properly contested election. >> a round of man versus machine, how some gadgets to help us could be doing the
welcome back. the top stories on al jazeera. voters in turkey are at the polls for the second time in five months, president recep tayyip erdogan has cast his ballot. the general election was after the a.k. party failed to form a government after the election in june al-shabab attacks a hotel in somali, killing 15, including
mp. two explosions hit a hotel popular with politicians russian and egyptian investigators are about to analyse the black box flight recorders. russia is observing a day of mourning for the 224 passengers and crew from the metro jet's airbus that crashed in sinai. >> returning to the top story in the parliamentary elections in turkey, it's been five months since there was a major shift in the landscape. we take a look at what the parties are hoping to secure in the latest poll > 550, the number of seats up for grabs in the election. the ruling justice and development party, or the a.k. party secured 258 seats in june, 18 short of what it needed to govern alone. to take the majority back, the a.k. party needs 276 seats or
42% of the vote. it's emphasising strength dealing with security and voting for stability. the main opposition, the republican people's party or the c.h.p. is secular, and got a quarter of the vote in june, that's 131 seats, and an increase in the share could enable it to form a coalition government. and with the message of change be an alternative. the nationalist party or m.h.p. sa right wing conservative party, and got 16% of the vote, translating into 79 seats. idea logically it is the natural coalition partner for the a.k. party. and then there's it the pro-kurdish people's democratic party or the h.d.p. it was the big winner in the last election, getting 13% of the vote, or 80 seats, more than enough to cross the difficult 10% thresholds to get into parliament. to do it again, it's trying to
shake off accusations that it's aligned with the p.k.k. more than 54 million turkish citizens are eligible to vote in the election. the question is whether they'll revert back to the a.k. party dominance of the last 13 years. or vote for change joining me in the studios, a senior fellow in turkish studies. good to have you with us. it's not likely, is it, that these elections will see more unity, because the polls are suggesting that turks are divided. >> turkey is polarized and always has been polarized. in recent years polarization has taken a new term, when we talk about the polarization, where most talk about political polarization, not social, the social polarization in country has decreased whereas the
political polarization has increased. it depends on the outcome of the elections, we may see an increase or decrease depending on what will emerge from the election. >> between these elections and the last elections we had a different atmosphere. there has been several attacks. security is an issue for voters. >> since june 7th, we had a big attack before the june 7th election on june 5th. india, the largest city, there has been an effect against the pro-kurdish forces rally. there has been two major attacks as well. one in the border down, one in a close border town killing 34 people and wounding 100, and the second in october 10th in ankara, killing 100 or more. the security is a factor
nevertheless its impact on the change, on on the people's voting behaviour is limited, because they have been consolidated. even before the june 7th elections, therefore it is a significant issue, but it's impacting on the behaviour. >> we saw the h.d.p., the kurdish party, getting into parliament for the first time. do you think it will happen again. >> yes, we'll see the pro-kurdish party in parliament, more or less with the same weight of vote. it's like a minus one. but more or less with the same right of voting. >> quickly, if there is another coalition or need for a coalition government, will the a.k. party deliver one up this time around? >> this time we'll have a government. whether it's coalition or single party, i don't think they can have another set of elections
in, you know, soon. >> good to speak with you. thank you for your analysis there. >> thank you myanmar is the final week of campaigning for the first properly contested election there following 50 years of military rule. opposition leader aung san suy kyi is holding a rally in the largest city yank gone, her party will face the ruling u.s. dp party. if neither win in the lerkz, they are expected to forge alliances and form a government. florence louie is there and has this update. >> there hasn't been a reliable opinion poll close to the election. many political commentators predict the national league will win a majority. it has been said that the inaccuracy in the vote, and in june, anywhere between 30 and 80% can be seen. the other issue is they had to
contend with it. in a country where anti-muslim sentiment has been brought up. they have been accused of being a pro-muslim party, and has chosen not to field a candidate. a move criticized. the third factor is the fact that many ethnic people will likely choose their parties. make their mistakes, whoever wins the election, the military will be an important force because of the way the constitution is drafted. a guaranteed 25%, it will not have the right to appoint a home minister, giving it control of security. post election, it will be the general's few of the democracy. this election is viewed as a step to a more democratic process. south korea hosted the first
trilateral summit with china and japan, the relationship has been marred by territorial disputes and unresolved issues for the world war ii. we have more from the south korean capital. >> the first trilateral talks in 3.5 years have been concluded. there was a news governance, not much of a conference, but it was an opportunity for the three leaders to put forward their messages, and there was a degree of commonality in the language they used. a lot of talk about piece, prosperity and stability and accelerating fans to have a 3-way free trade agreement between the three nations that between them amount for 20% of the global economy. the president park geun-hye of the south korea said restarting the process could be a spur towards better bilateral relations between the countries, the bilateral relationship between seoul, since she and
prime minister shinzo abe took power in japan has been profity, largely over the historical issues, women forced into sexual slavery to serve the military before and during world war ii. there'll be a first bilateral talks with prime minister shinzo abe on monday. much attention focussed on those. they are destined to be short. not much great. it will be a symbolic step toward, the united states wants it to improve, and wants the two key allies to be bound more closely together in a way to counteract the rise of china. >> proo testers condemn the murder of a book publisher. books were published by the author. he was also hacked to death. roy was an atheist. four secular bloggers have been
murdered through it. they are blamed for maulting the attacks. >> the highest court in guinea confirmed the result of last month's presidential election, the judge dismissed claims of fraud after the re-election. president conde. gerald tan reports. >> reporter: a tans of victory -- dance of victory. there was little doubt about how the ghanaians felt. the chief judge moments before validated the results of presidential elections held three weeks ago. >> translation: with all consequence the constitutional court declares kondes, winning 67.84% of the votes, and was elected president of the public. the election commission had already declared conde as
winner, but three opposition canned lodged complaints of vote rigging and fraud. the court found those claims baseless. >> the election was fine, and it was peaceful. we are happy with this result. we are happy. alpha is not a thief, and he won with the blessing of god. >> this is the second vote since independence from france 60 years ago. violence in the week before the polls marked the campaign of course, there was high turn out and little incidents on election day. >> the election did take police in a decent manner and the period after election there was an experience of quiet times. >> conde faces challenges as he enters the second term in office. the ebola outbreak lingers and a slump in global metal crisis
affects exports. for now, his supporters are celebrating five more years under his leadership. now, internal activists in kenya are trying to make their community energy efficient. they want to convince people that human waste can be a source of fuel. >> reporter: this woman is teaching women in her neighbourhood about coal. it's not just about coal, it's taking longer, odour less. buying something new, north-west, they have a tough job convincing people to buy. >> translation: people normally ask me is it really safe. they are conservative. the first reaction is shock. i explain to them that this has been tested and proven to be
safe. >> they are known for the flower fans, but it's a sanitation hazard that not enough titles and disposal waist system. so most is dumped in the lake. a nonprofit organization is helping to change that. they come in at a cost. when you look at that those using them for from their house. >> reporter: people have been given toilet boxes, and collecting waste twice a week for a fee of $5 a month. the waste is brought here for treatment. solar concentrators is meant to kill everything that is harmful, a process that takes a day to make sure the waste is clean enough to go into that pleasing
plant. >> in a fairly simply process, human waste is mixed with stems flown away to make this. in is mostly sold to industries. workers here are increasingly reaching out to people at home. >> in a lot the areas, they don't have stones, and the chark hole is perfect for working with the mechanics. >> many use charcoal and firewood. it's a good idea for a country where 7 out of 10 lack a household talt and 5% of human waste is treated before being released into the parliament. shows working to popularize if say the biggest challenge is to convince people that human waste can be good
the u.s. search team found what it believes is the wreckage of alpharaoh, a cargo ship that went missing during a category 4 hurricane, it was located at a depth of 4,500 meters in a position in the bahamas. it disappeared on october the 1st. 33 crew members on board disappeared with the ship as machines get smarter and more efficient people's jobs are under threat. atms have been replaced. airport machines are doing away with staff and so on. john has been in the corridor in north carolina which is increasingly workerless. >> reporter: as fast food workers in the west demand higher wage, in san francisco, the future of fast food is here, and it's automated. here, the customer is the order
taker, cashier and server. it's like a 1950s auto mat. but there's no visible staff other than a concierge to help the technically challenged. it's about delivering food and is nutritious at a fast pace. it has brought automation and a touch of curiosity to dining. it is touching every aspect of our lives. google has a self-driving car. dank ler is preparing to deploy 18 wheelers like this on the roadways. avt, california based, makes a mash in from anything -- machine from anything sold by a clerk - from coffee to snow cones, propane - eastern ipads. >> it's automatic gratification. we can make up any machine to do whatever you want or need.
we have done hundreds of different vending machines. >> robots replaced many manufacturing and service jobs. futurists say they pose a threat to white collar workers. >> robots, machines - they go to displaced workers, there's no doubt about that. we see research into others like creative machines, algorithms creating designs, writing sim fanies. the rise of automation could make it considerably cheaper and could affect more workers faster than anyone expects. >> this will happen faster. i'm talking about dramatic changes when you have self driving cars, within 10 years, it's fascinated. one growth industry will be preparing machines.

called by many the greatest history. this has been a tournament of memorable games, surprising ruts, and no surprise at who ended up the champions. >> former new zealand player michael johns, a part of the team that won the first world cup in 1987 says the all back side is -- all black side is the best ever. >> the guys did a fantastic accomplishment for the country, we are small, they are ambassadors, but there's no doubt that the one on one show convincingly, they are the greatest all black team we had. it's all credit to the group. the coaches from the time they won it four years ago, they have been planning for this day, and
