announcer: this is al jazeera. welcome to the newshour, here is what is coming up in the next 60 minutes. turkey's ruling party remains its footing with a majority win in parliamentary elections. russia says an airliner that crashed broke apart in mid air. the armed group al-shabab attacks a hotel in somali, killing at least 15, and how technology is changing the work
place in the u.s. hello, turkies, ruling justice and development party, the a.k. party your regains control on power. after performing better than expected. there were scenes of celebration after results showed the a.k. party has enough votes to claim 316 seats, allowing it to form a government on its own and return turkey to single party government. the a.k. party secured a vote sir of 49.4%. the opposition c.h.p. won about 25% of the votes, and the nationalist m.h.p. taking 11.9% and the pro-kurdish htp claiming a little over 10.5%. the atmosphere in the turkish city was mixed.
a small group of protesters throwing stones before the area was cleared by police using tear gas. the election result is a victory for democracy. th have been celebrating with a.k. party supporters outside the headquarters. >> translation: we have an announcement to begin. today is a day of victory for our democracy, for our nation and may god be content with everyone who has made this victory possible. may god front us the dig nitty when we face our -- dignity when we face our nation, our people so we have our chin and heads up. may god never cause us to feel embarrassed or shamed when facing our people. >> joining me on the phone from ankara is jamal. what a difference five months makes for the a.k. party, able to form a government on their own. >> indeed, it was a gamble
calling for the snap elections, it paid off the the underlying message that the party was trying to send out to voters was that the country needed stability, politically it needed stability, economically and in terms of stability. the only way that would happen was if it was returned to power with a sound majority. it appears that a vast number brought into that message one or two giving the a.k. party a vote of confident and their task of power. obviously there was several main or key issues at the forefront of the elections from security with the rise in bomb attacks that have taken place in the past few months. the economy took a hit after the last elections and the political
image of turkey and the political system governing it. it's all of these things high in the minds of voters, but ultimately they decided to continue with the a.k. party, at the homes of the country, those that are condemned to form a government to rule over for the next four years and the vote margin fell short of the super majority. which would have allowed them to change the constitution, that was a worry for the opposition sporers, wasn't it. >> indeed. but, i mean, when we were speaking to the a.k. party leaders on the eve of the poll. they were happy if they were going to secure votes large enough to allow them to form a government. there was no serious talk about this majority. being a farr fetched theme.
all the exit polls leading up to the elections, the most optimistic gave the a.k. party 46, 47% of the vote. for them to reach 50% was something that exceeded expectations. but then again, when you look at the reality on the ground, it is understandable why a lot of people have decided to return them to power. we are talking about a doubling over the past 10 years under the a.k. party leadership. you are talking about roughly 100 universities, more than 10 airports. kilometres and roads built, double that of the previous years, prior to them coming into government. all of these reasons, a lot to think about, they may not agree with the ideologies, but when it comes to the bread and butter issues of day and life - feeding kids, taking them to school - it
makes a lot of sense for a lot of people to come out and vote for them. >> jamal, thank you for that. updating us from the turkish capital armoured vehicles and police could be seen during voting in the kurdish strong hold of diabakir, and bernard smith has the updeath on the pro-kurdish people's democratic party. >> in june's election the pro-kurd rich h.d.p. surprised everyone getting more than 13% of the vote, depriving, helping to deprive the ruling a.k. party of the parliamentary majority. this time around it's been a closer call, the suggestion is that the akp has 10.5%. vote, getting it over the threshold to get preparation in parliament. anything below that, and the more than 4.5 million that voted for the h.d.p. would not had had
representation in parliament. that's how did not it was for the h.d.p. they have 59 m.p.s, compared to the 80 they got in june. the h.d.p. leader he is saying that they got 11% in the midst of mayhem, referring to the violence breaking out in turkey, and the break down between the p.k.k. and the durkish state and the box bongs where they were kurdish. they found it difficult to campaign, nevertheless the the water lot book to see if there's anything to learn, but it's
remarkable they got into parliament, giving the circumstances in which they campaign. >> let talk about this with a professor at the university of utah, specialising in the middle east, joining us from salt lake city. thank you forum being with us. what do you put the result down to. 5 months is not a long time in the history of any country. this time around the a.k. party is decisively victor yus, and able to form a government by themselves, what do you think is the difference for them? >> well i think the difference is people voted for stability, at the - after the june election coalition parties failed to form a government. economy became worse. especially the security challenge became more difficult to deal with, given the p.k.k. engaged a number of attack against the government buildings, including suicide
bombings from syria, so people voted for stability and opposition parties failed to provide a plan for the future of the country. i think the message is very clear, that the turk rich quarters wants stability, economic stability and people also have a faith in the messenger of the message, that is recep tayyip erdogan. and i think that the population very much rally around him to overcome the instability, and to maintain economic stackility in the country. >> the h.d.p., an opposition party, that took 10% of the vopt. a pro-kurdish party, they say they were not able to campaign the way they wanted, saying main of their campaign rallies had to
be cancelled for security reasons, and complained, as did other parties, about the lack of sufficient care time on turkish television. are they justified do you think? >> i don't think so. i think the kurdish party in the june election received over 6 million vote. in the two election it was 5 million, and announced one million, you cannot explain the loss. what we see is that the middle and upper middle class kurds did not work for the h.d.p. and you cannot explain that in terms of the government policy. i think the h.d.p. failed to distance itself from the p.k.k. and the modernist turks and leftist turks who voted for them in the june election, they refused to vote this dime.
h.d.p. became its own problem by not distances itself from terrorist of activities of p.k.k. there's a point that the government became the - you know, it provided all the opportunities for the government party, and not enough time for parties. the state tv didn't go a good job. given the turkey is very much a search in the country, you have over 200 private tv stations, opposition newspapers. i think people did hear what opposition wanted to say, and people heard what the government party wants to do. it had to do with the search for stability, political stability and economic stability and the
people of country came to the conclusion that recep tayyip erdogan, the a.k. party, is the only way to maintain stability in the country. >> you talk about stability, there's concerns expressed about the way that stability is administered, and i'm talk it is about the way journalists van treated -- have been treated. there has been concerns about intimidation of journalists, a number have been put in gaol because of things they have reported that the government didn't like. now the a.k. party is in the driving street, are the concerns going to be readdressed? >> i don't think so. as i said, i think this is a vote for stability, not
democracy or human rights. the people prefer stability against, for security and the economic stability over some. concerns such as human rights. i agree that there are problems in the country, in regard to the freedom of press. again the people, the electorate very much they think that the stability is important, and there are problems in speeches in the country, freedom of the media, and i think these issues will stay on the table. and a.k. party now more confident. they might deal and cope with these problems in a more liberal fashion. again what i hear, what i read in this election, that the people very much cares, stability over freedom of speech. >> all right. good to get your perspective on this. joining us there from salt lake
city in utah. thank you for being with us. >> thank you now, russia is saying that the plane carrying russian holiday makers that broke party in mid air before crashing into egypt's sinai peninsula. the bodies of those on board are being taken to cairo. it crashed minutes after taking off from the egyptian resort of sharm el sheikh. 224 passengers and crew were killed. russia says it will compensate victim's families and help with funeral arrangements. >> in russia, memorial services took place across the country to remember those that died. peter sharp reports. >> reporter: in front of one of russia's powerful symbols history. the tsar winter palace, hundreds gathered to take comfort and support in a silent vigil at a time of suffering of the the dead were known to many.
>> translation: on this flight there was a girl i have known since i was six. her name was leah, we were at the same gymnastics class. >> they were mainly our people, citizens of st. petersburg. it's not just them, we don't want an aircraft to crash again. >> reporter: at the crash site in egypt, they were scouring an area trying to piece together what happened. 120km from the crash site. some say that the aircraft flying from sharm el sheikh, to st. petersburg, broke up at high altitude. several airlines, lufthansa, and air france decided not to fly over the area until the cause is identified. russia and egypt are reluctant
to give credibility to claims of i.s.i.l. affiliates that they shot down the air bus. >> it's very important that that matter be left alone and discussions should not take police, this takes a long time. they are complicated matters requiring advanced techniques and broad investigations that could take months. in the resort where many of the victims were staying, there were prayers for those lost, across russia, church services to the worst ever air disaster. questions, too, about what happened above the skies of egypt. >> but for a community desperate to understand what happened, there'll be no quick answers. >> for these people the horror of the tragedies will become more pafferent the bodies of -- apparent the bodies of those built in the crash.
they'll be taken to a purpose-built mort u airy where their d.n.a. will be matched by samples given by their families. here in st. petersburg, the home of so many of the dead, they decided to extend the period of mourning for another two days more coming up on the al jazeera newshour. teaching children how to use weapons. al jazeera gets rare access to an i.s.i.l. base in afghanistan. u.s. funded rebel group is trying to fight i.s.i.l. in syria, other groups are not happy about it. >> in sport roger federer gets the better of old rival rafael nadal in the swiss indoors final. all that ahead. first, al-shabab fighters have attacked a luxury hotel in somali's capital mogadishu
killing 15 people, including a member of parliament. victoria gatenby has more. >> a suicide bomber detonates his explosives inside a hotel in mogadishu. outside a car is on fire, it had been packed with explosives and used by gunmen to blast their way into the hotel compound. they stormed the hotel itself. the hotel is popular with somali politicians. one current and one former member of parliament are among the dead. senior government officials were killed. one mp called the attack a dark day for somali. >> translation: i was at the scene of the explosion taking photos when a car full of explosives detonated. i fell on the ground. part of my body was bleeding. i was with another journalist
who was killed. >> reporter: somali soldiers were called in to recapture the hotel. >> translation: security forces played a roll to limit the loss of life. this is a dangerous attempt. we were sure that the moment was tweeted at the end. al-shabab operates in somali and neighbouring countries claimed responsibility. >> it's clear if the look at the events, that al-shabab had the cape yibilityy to -- capability to organise attacks. it's unfortunate that they occur sporadically overall. the government forces are in the offensive and have the momentum. >> in april, fighters from the group killed 147 people in an attack on the university college in kenya, and 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 the government pushed al-shabab out of major cities, including mogadishu, with the help of soldiers. attacks like this shows somali's government and supporters have more work to do just a day after russia's envoy to the u.n. claimed syrian president bashar al-assad will no longer use barrel bombs on civilians footage emerged of syrian fighter jets going just that. the air force dropped more than 20 barrel bombs in a suburb on the western outskirts of damascus, dozens were injured in the bombing raid in northern syria, i.s.i.l. is facing a new alliance of armed opposition groups. the syrian democratic forces are supported by the united states, and are made up of kurdish

strikes in recent months. it's been trying to recruit groups from the syrian arab majority to create what kurdish leaders say is a unified national force. they continue to be criticized by many, including neighbouring turkey for creating their own state. >> when they use the arab slogans and have a lot of arab groups joining them, they try to achieve credibility. it's clear that it's the kurdish forces trying to implement a plan and agenda in northern syria. >> reporter: the y.p.g. controls half the border with syria, and the new force is trying to push i.s.i.l. from the country side, this is the prelude to an attack. already the y.p.g. is around 50km north ever what i.s.i.l. says is their capital.
then will continue to push further. a partner, a revolutionary front, said an offensive against i.s.i.l. is imminent. the leader said it would be an historic battle first, and syria second. >> reporter: syrian forces say the goal is not just to end i.s.i.l.'s presence, but to build a democratic unified syria, a goal shared by the gates that decided to send troops on an advisory mission to syria, the deployment and support for the y.p.g. is causing essentials. u.s. ground involvement is focussed on fighting i.s.i.l. secretary of state john kerry said the u.s. is norte entering the war, which is angering the groups. they are not just worried about the y.p.g., but believe the
priority is to fight syrians i.s.i.l. fighters say take taking territory from the taliban. al jazeera gained access. we have this report on how i.s.i.l. are recruiting chin to fight for them. >> another generation of afghan children is being brainwashed. this is the province, and the many giving weapons to children expressed 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 the recruitment is aimed at the young. i.s.i.l. fighters seem comfortable in the village life. there is a fear of drone strikes. their biggest enemy is the afghan taliban. >> thank god there's a cal fat.
that's why we placed allegiance to the caliphate, fighting under their leadership. the fighters are intending territory from the military and the gunman. we don't agree with the brothers that want i.s.i.l., the taliban is here. if there's no need, why would you join them. >> al jazeera was given access to the group's bases. the numbers don't seem large, but they say there's many in hiding. >> translation: there are many fighters, a large number from saudi arabia. they are here, but cannot talk face to face. >> reporter: more chilling than their aims are the methods. the 13 and 17 years are ready to become suicide bombers, trained by foreigners and don't fear giving up their lives. >> the target is the commander,

totally created with the ability of what we need. heated tents, containers for the groups, and we are not expecting problems from this position. capacity is 5,000 people in a moment. >> reporter: from croatia they'll likely go north to slovenia and austria before reaching germany. at each stop they face more difficulties. for the countries, the issue is numbers. for the refugees, it's doing what it takes for a chance at a new life. >> we'll take a quick break. coming up. kenya looks to a lump of coal that could solve two environment problems at once. and in sport, england make a strong start to the third test

attack. is it a reminder that somali is a long way from minding anything close to stability. >> this is a tragic reminder of the incompetence of the somali government and the african union to fail to secure the country, and that they are slaughtered on a regular basis. the car bomb was prepared itself, so it's a tragic reminder that somali is a distance away from piece and security. >> you talk about the incompetence of the government and the au forces. what about al-shabab, and the facts giving rise to a group like them.
>> what they did in the first place was the occupation of somali by ethiopia after the reunion in 2006/2007. if the international community worked with that group. they would have repained on the fringe -- remained on the fringe of society. that gave them strength and life and defranchised the governments coming after. groups supporting the african union but a lot of resources, hundreds of millions, if not billions, but few goes to somali security forces, and in my opinion, they are profession ag, are the only ones that can concane and eliminate al-shabab. >> you think more needs to be invested in the security forces? >> two things have to be done. somali security forces have to be specialized and resources made available. and the regime showing that it has the loyalty and respect of
its people have to come to place. without those circumstances al-shabab will continue to do its dirty work. >> you paint a bleak picture about the future of the country, is there reason for optimism going forward? >> i've been to mogadishu a few weeks ago, and the ordinary people are full of energy, the private sector is working. ordinary people are getting on with their lives, we are lacking leadership that can excite and mobilize them. if it's on the confidence and truthfulness and loyalty, i'm certain it can be secured without a large investment, but a targeted investment. leadership is key here and complete in the country. >> good to speak to you. joining us there from minnesota

he is winning effort to win support for the conference in paris, and china's support is crucial. >> france values his climate summit and considers it a diplomatic goal. china shares the same goal and is making a big effort to reduce emissions. china has a lot of difficulties. >> francis hollande's visit cams after a lot of blue-sky days. as winter steps in and increases demand, residents know it's a matter of time before the smog returns to the northern part of china. as the world's biggest producer of carbon dioxide, china's emissions are twice those of the united states, which is the second highest producer. environmentalists say recent efforts at reducing dependence on cheap dirty coal helped china turn a corner. >> the good news is the coal use
in china has seen a decline in last year, for the first time in a century, and is continuing. as a result, carbon emissions stalled in the last year. while china might have some way to go to build the green energy credentials, the reputation as an environmental villain is changing. francis hollande and the climate change conference, they find a friend in china seven people have been arrested in the maldives after weapons were found by police investigating an assassination attempt on the president. the grenades, guns and ammunition were discovered dumped in the sea. the president yameen abdul gayoom escaped unhurt. the slp was arrested in connection with the blast. >> in myanmar it's the final week of campaigning following 50 years of military rule.

people and imaginerities will choose their own parties. make no mistake. whoever wins the election, the military will be an important force because the way the constitution is drafted. 25% in parliament will have the right to appoint a home minister, giving it control over security and the justice system. post election, they'll lead a view of disciplined democracy. this election is viewed as a sustain towards democratic protest. >> protestors in bangladesh are condemning the murder of a book publisher. he was found hacked to death in the capital. he published books by an author hacked to death. he was an atheist and critical. four bloggers had been murdered. police say they are investigating the possibility, local groups are behind the attack. >> with more than 90% of the
