s a quick press conference there with barack obama and erdogan on the g 20 meeting happening in turkey. the two were telling us that haven't though the economy was supposed to be the g 20 meeting, obviously, i.s.i.l. was the main topic after those attacks in france. they said the coalition is united in tackleking and they discussed the refugee problem and tightening borders. obviously united and shocked
5:02 am
about what has happened. any ideas what they will do? >> reporter: before this event started, he said after paris the time for words was over and he wanted more cooperation between states in tackling the i.s.i.l. threat. the meeting has only just finished. no indication as to how they might cooperate more. we know already that turkey allows the u.s. to use its air bases to strike i.s.i.l. positions in syria. turkey is tribinging pkk targets-- striking pkk targetss. there is a fine line by acknowledging that turkey has its own fight against what it calls terrorism while the u.s. is concentrating on i.s.i.l. but nothing coming out on how they will coordinate
5:03 am
turkey has been criticised how slow it has been in tackling i.s.i.l. >> reporter: yes. turkey was really lately coming to this. it only opened its air bases in june after intense pressure from the u.s., particularly now those bases are opened, the u.s. is able to strike i.s.i.l. positions. turkey considers and said previously that it sees both as an equal threat. the turkish government, there have want raids over a few months, seems to be a crack down in turkey. today there were raids where four suspected - seven suspected i.s.i.l. members were detained and then another raid on another property in the early hours of this morning. the target of that raid blew himself up ininjuring four
5:04 am
police officers as they tried to get in. we had a suicide bombing in turkey in october, the biggest attack on turkish soil since the founding of the modern state. turkey is aware of the i.s.i.l. threat. yes, the european partners and u.s. might want turkey to play a more active role thank you for that. the french police say they have found another car suspected to be linked to friday's attacks in paris. 129 people were killed and more than 350 others injured. the 9 of them crith-- 99 of them critically. more details of the attackers in the paris attacks. prosecutors say the highly cooperated organisation which i.s.i.l. says it organised involved a multinationalal team with links to the middle east, belgium and possibly germany.
5:05 am
suspects have been arrested with alleged being involved. some attackers had french roots. one of them was a 29-year-old paris native. six people close to him have been detained. more from paris. >> reporter: the memories of the brutal attacks are still all too raw. they had a vigil here lighting candles in tribute no those who lost their lives. prayers too for the surgeons in the city's hospitals who are still fighting to save nearly 100 victims on the critical list. the message here, though, we are not afraid. >> translation: there's a lot of emotion after what has happened, a lot of sadness, hatred as well for those who come and attack us. >> translation: two weeks ago a friend of mine said don't go to
5:06 am
tunisia. i said it's just as risky here. if you let fear change the way you live, they have won. >> reporter: these men were cold hearted professional killers. they were all armed with automatic weapons and they knew how to use them. they also had suicide belts with detonation buttons. they are ball bearings in those belts on to maximise the carnage. >> translation: we can at this stage say it's very likely that there were three coordinated teams of terrorists who were responsible for this bar barity. the investigation will try to find the perpetrators, the accomplices who erreded them their route and who offenced them. the police now say there were seven known attackers all dead. they have positively identified
5:07 am
one, a french citizen who attacked the concert hall. he was on their extremist watch list but only been involved in petty crimes. his father and brother are in custody. several men have been arrested in belgium. police say they're connected to a car found near the concert hall. another piece of evidence was discovered at the stade de france. a syrian passport was found near the bodies of the suicide bombers. it was used by somebody claiming rev fudge in the agreeing island of leros in october. i.s.i.l. has unleashed carnage in beirut and baghdad, but now it is a war that has reached into france to jacky rowland. there are a few people milling around behind you. i'm just wondering what they're saying about what happened and what the feeling is there today.
5:08 am
>> reporter: i'm at a traditional place in france where people come to at times of national crisis and mourning. those viewers who were watching al jazeera back in january after the "charlie hebdo," they will remember how this became a shrine to a victim. it is like now. people coming to lay flowers and light candles. there's a sense of disbelief, a sense of you be reality and fear, also indignation at what happened we know a car has been found which is possibly linked to the attackers. what is coming out today, about who they were? >> reporter: we first heard about this car when the paris prosecutor spoke to journalists on saturday.
5:09 am
he said there's a black fiaat had been involved in the shoot ittings at two of the locations and on sunday police report found what they believe is that vehicle, a black fiaat which they found in the eastern fringes of paris, about 5 or 6 kilometres from the center of the town. we've also, obviously, as we were hearing from david, there are more details about that first attacker who they have been able to positively identify, a 29-year-old who has been named. they have detained a number of his relatives and people in his closest circles for questioning, what has been described as routine questioning to establish more details about his identity. what police are doing here is they're trying to repiece together a jigsaw puzzle
5:10 am
fragments. they can start trying to connect the dots, who he was involved with, who might have shared his belief and who will be out there posing a threat towards many people the french president francois hollande has promised to lead the fight against i.s.i.l. and be ruthless extremism. john hull looks at the impact on the agoa tacts from policies. >> reporter: paris attacked again. the president has called it an act of war. >> translation: faced with war the country has taken appropriate steps. it's an act of war committed by a terrorist army, d.a.e.s.h., an islamist army against france and the values we uphold throughout the world, against who we are, a tree country which speaks to the whole planet. >> reporter: this was the
5:11 am
response of right wing opposition leader expected to do well with views like these in up coming elections. >> translation: islamic fundamentalist must be destroyed, islamist organisations should be banned. close mosqued and illegal immigrants on who have nothing to do here. >> reporter: friday's killings were claimed by i.s.i.l. or d.a.e.s.h. >> regarding foreign policy, we decided to hit i.s.i.s. in iraq. we decided it was self-defense to go into syria. it is a turmoil we are in now >> reporter: in other words, does it surprise you that france has been singled out for these attacks? >> not much. >> reporter: the government has put the army onto the streets, but questions will be asked about its preparedness before these attacks. >> things have evolved in a much more disturbing manner than
5:12 am
i think anybody imagined. the french were expecting something fairly big. the background noise was sort of evil over the last few weeks, but it is the sheer sophistication of this series of attacks which really does strike. >> reporter: the streets of paris have been stunned into an eerie quiet, a country in a state of emergency wondering why this is happening again so soon after the attacks on "charlie hebdo" journalists and justish shoppers jewish shoppers. >> reporter: world leaders gathered here as well. france stood united among its allies in defense of its freedoms. now such gatherings are banned. this feels like a far more fractured defensive france, a president promising to defeat the enemy outside arising opposition leader looking for an enemy within, a nation of deep
5:13 am
disquiet an author now joins us now. good to have you with us. interesting reading what you're saying about the potential fallout here. with the right wing beating the drum and saying i told you so, i warned you, what sort of cacti do you think these attacks are likely to have on muslim communities and the refugees? >> i certainly think that muslim communities across europe would be feeling worried about repraisal attacks, an increase in activity and perhaps more surveillance, more worried they will be targeted, ordinary people, targeted more by people around them as well as
5:14 am
governments. i think it's the response that i.s.i.s. will want because i.s.i.s., in my view, is trying to provoke european governments and citizens to turn inwards and turn against people of other backgrounds how do you think that will benefit their cause? will it push more recruits in their direction? >> i think i.s.i.s. is certainly looking for that. the aim of this attack or these attacks, in my view, is always try to get more discord and division within europe and the united states because they want muslims to think that this is not home and they should go with them and join them in syria. it certainly makes sense from that perspective, to get people to turn each other and almost cause a clangs of civilisations in the west apparently syrian passports
5:15 am
were found on the attackers' bodies. they came through as refugees. we don't know if that is true, but that speculation is dangerous. >> absolutely. i've seen stories, i tweeted earlier about how a journalist recently emerged to forge a syrian passport and use that. i think there are certain questions to be asked whether the syrian passport found at the scene was legitimate or not. even them, blaming an entire mass of refugees for the actions of a few is wrong, but not only wrong, it plays into i.s.i.s.' hands because those people are leaving syria and leaving i.s.i.s. behind to try and find a better life and actually by welcoming them, i think we show that europe can be a compassionate place the french president francois hollande said there will be a merciless response. when if comes to i.s.i.l.,
5:16 am
surely he needs to be smarter than what he saw his predecessors do after the september 11 attacks. he needs to come up with something a lot smarter than that right? >> i certainly think so. it's dangerous to go in and attack i.s.i.s. on the ground like iraq style and hope that will be good. it didn't work with al-qaeda and i think we have to be much smarter when we're dealing with i.s.i.s. that's why i said in my piece, the biggest mistake we can make now is falling into the trap that i.s.i.s. has laid out for us. i think it's important for the west to think more strategically how more specific plan about what to do, build a coalition and have a joint plan in muslim countries in the region to do something about i.s.i.s. interesting thought. thank you. much more to come on the al jazeera news hour. the u.s. democratic presidential
5:17 am
takes to the stage for a second time. i.s.i.l. and foreign policy dominates the debate. >> reporter: eight habitats like this are threat. [ ♪ ] sporting teams and fans across the world pay their own attributes to victims of the paris attacks. the pentagon says i.s.i.l.'s leader why libya has possibly been killed in a u.s. s strike. it is said he was killed near the eastern port city. he was a long time al-qaeda before he joined i.s.i.l. the bodies of yazidis people have been found in a mass grave in northern iraq. the discovery was made after
5:18 am
kurdish fighters recaptured the town of sinjar from i.s.i.l. fighters. the grave could be one of many. >> reporter: after the peshmerga advanced swiftly into sinjar, evidence of i.s.i.l.'s brutality comes to light. a peshmerga soldier places items that investigators say were found on this site. they include bones, hair and personal items. this is a man who says members of his families and relatives are buried here. he is angry at what happened. >> translation: we understand this is war. we know people will die, but this is more. we will never forget what they did here. we will have our revenge. according to the u.n. i.s.i.l. killed at least 3000 yazidi men and women from june 2014. the yazidis practice an ancient
5:19 am
religion which i.s.i.l. thought was heretic. they also enslaved women. >> reporter: are according to authorities there could be hundreds of sites like this across the region. as they go into the town and clear different areas, it is likely that they will find more mass graves. >> reporter: the head of the local intelligence department says it's further evidence of i.s.i.l.'s violence. >> translation: we keep finding evidence of their actions and this needs to be documented and recorded. >> reporter: it's up to this man to record that evidence. originally from sinjar, he has worked with the international criminal court for 13 years and now advises the kurdish regional government on war crimes and genocide. he says this attack took place on august 15 and that this grave contained 76 bodies, including young women, and that it might qualify as genocide. >> these young girls, they told
5:20 am
us they managed to escape from i.s.i.s. and they came top our center for interrogation and gathering evidence. they told us about this - they been there and they mentioned all the details. so this is evidence. >> reporter: given the verocity of the u.s. led coalition air strikes and the peshmerga rans, it's likely that evidence of i.s.i.l. killings in this town will have been lost but for the yazidis relief some evidence is at least being discovered talking about the flooding in india. what's happening there? >> reporter: yeah. storms for over a week which has led to widespread flooding. looking at the picture you can see clearly the mass of cloud here pushing right up here. it has been circulating here.
5:21 am
as i said, the best part of a week now. we have been concerned that it might develop into a tropical cyclone. it hasn't done so yet. it has been stuck in the same area. this is the northern parts of easily e-sri lanka. we have been seeing that kind of total for chenai for the best part of a week. 350 millimetres in a month of november. we've seen that in the last five days. that really has caused problems of the further heavy showers swirling away here as we go on through monday. very little change. if anything anything, the wetter weather will go north ward as we go into tuesday. that flooding of continue. dry weather pushing it's way. in india, we will see more heavy rain over the next few days,
5:22 am
exacerbating of those floods. flooding too in the southern area of china. this cloud is going down to this area. that is producing some very rainful as well. many rivers have burst their banks. the swollen waters extending into residential premises as well. many homes have also been flooded. i think we will see showers and longer spells of rain across southern parts of china through monday. pushing up towards the eastern side of the country, but a little dry for the south. by tuesday rain one of the most remote places on earth and the wildlife that thrives there is under threat. that's according to conservationists who say the forests are being lost at an alarming rate. the region is in the north of the republic of congo. the remote 260 scare kilometer area forms part of the national
5:23 am
park. it's isolation has largely protected it from loggers, but the market for palm oil is being a men ace. obviously it looks rather humid and denies there. talk us through what it is like there. >> this is one of the most remote places on earth. to just give you an idea how hard it is to get here, it's a two-day drive from the capital. you're 50 kilometres away. an hour's drive, an canoe down two rivers. if you want to get here, it's about a five or six hour hike, some through waist-high water. our crew endured leaches, biting
5:24 am
ants, and a rampaging elephant. when we got here we foupd a pristine environment. it is called the last eden because it is a good habitat for endangered gorillas and chimps. people found naive champs which mean they responded to humans with curiosity rather than a threat pause they had never seen this before. researchers find this a valuable place for that reason. there are six western low land gorillas and many chimps. it is just perfect for them, for their habitat. because they are protected here, no-one is allowed to live here, not even indigenous people. there are no hunters. there are no tourists.
5:25 am
it's just really just researchers and those lucky few of us to join them. we're among some 20 outsiders who have got to see this. so i mean other than the language speaking locals who live in the near by villages. >> reporter: these are the eyes of an endangered blood line. western low land gorillas can relax here in the wildlife preserve where they're protected from logging and hunters. it's downtime for them most of them now. >> reporter: since 1988 they've gone to vulnerable to endangered to critically endangered. in the past 60 years, hunting and ebola has slacked their numbers by 80%. there are 100,000 left. >> disease has been a major influence in most areas. hunting has been most dangerous threat to them, but the spread
5:26 am
of logging, agriculture is also having an impact on their environment. >> reporter: dave morgan of the announcer: has preached ape habitats for 16 years here. >> reporter: the rest of the group is coming up. >> reporter: he has helped turn animal hunters into trackers who protect their prey. >> translation: this is a good job that makes me feel good and i can make a living. >> reporter: this is emily and her first baby. we have to wear these masks to make sure there's no disease catching either way. despite the fact that they're threatened by logging, agricultural encroachment and people hunlting them for their meat, they're comfortable with having us this close. these animals have the intelligence to craft their own tools to turn a termite mound into a meal.
5:27 am
even they have no defense against a dwindling habitat. champs are more territorial than gorillas and less likely to survive a move. >> what happens with logging, you force one to be displaced right on top of the other. once you get two communities going together, then you really do see chimp carnage. >> reporter: researcher spend years getting to know them through daily contact and that can be terrifying. >> some will start charging, the trackers and ourselves. it's risky. people do get bitten. it is stressful, but in the end we think it's really important to have a couple of groups habituated so we can learn about them and educate about them. >> reporter: in persuading people to preserve the vanishing
5:28 am
habitats may be the last best hope for future generations like enas. >> reporter: back here, this is really an ideal place for research. it's not just an ideal habitat for the great apes because there are no humans here other than the researchers. they can use this as a baseline for how these animals behave in other parts of the world. they have found some unusual behaviours. there are some chimps here who will beat their chest. that's normally something gorillas do, but they have begun to mimic the apes that has not been seen in other places. that is an example of the kind of things that they're finding here in their efforts to study these animals. the reason that this is a great habitat for them. they continue to prosper here
5:29 am
even outside in the rest of the world they are dwindling other than that fly attack, i engee your experience. still ahead on the news hour, new warnings that the philippines is not doing enough to protect children from sexual exploitation. ronda's rain is over. one of the biggest names of female sport was taken down.
5:30 am
reminder of our top stories. president obama has vowed to redouble efforts with partners

5:32 am
hoping to replace obama. the final three contenders for the u.s. presidentcy faced off. >> reporter: they came bearing support for those reeling from the paris attacks. wanting answers from the democratic candidate. >> my heart goes on to everyone in paris. i just feel a lot of their sense of loss. >> it's concerning to me about what's going to happen in the fuchlt. i do want them to talk about protecting our country. >> reporter: moderator asked the same question. bernie sanders replying rival hillary clinton contributed to regional instability as a former u.s. senator voting for the invasion of iraq in 2003. >> i would argue that the
5:33 am
disastrous invasion which i opposed has unravelled the region completely. >> i have said the invasion of iraq was a mistake, if we're going to tackle the problems exposed, we need to understand it. >> reporter: it was an exchange that dominated the debate and immediately following had clinton's team struggling to spin. >> she said that her vote on iraq was a mistake and the lack of leadership for the bush administration. >> reporter: but it wasn't to acknowledge mistakes. does that go far enough? we can all acknowledge it contributed to thea instability in the region. >> ultimately. that's the thing voters decide. >> reporter: in february they will get their chance when the state holds the nations first presidential nam naturing contest. >> reporter: there were domestic issues discussed in this second debate. given it comes just one day after the paris attacks, the
5:34 am
canned da dates' position on exiting i.s.i.l. are what are making headlines - candidates' a new round of talks have taken place in vienna to try and end the war in syria. russian and the u.s. briefly putta side their deferences to condemn the attacks in paris. reporting from the austrian capital. >> reporter: while the attacks and terrorists may have over shadowed talks about syria, they also underscored a new commitment to end that country's war. >> make no mistake, that resolve has only grown stronger in the wake of this unspeakable prelatesity. i think-- brutality. i think all would agree there was a broad based sense of revulsion, of horror and a deep commitment to do more to try and bring an end to the violence of the region and of the world.
5:35 am
>> reporter: unlike the last round of talks in october, this time several concrete steps were agreed to and a time line was established. first, of formal negotiation of the syrian opposition and the syrian regime. the hope is that those discussions be held under the auspices of the special envoy for syria will begin no later than january 1. >> translation: the syrian government has already informed of the composition of their delegation. today mr has the toft to find the syrian which should be representative and affect the whole spectrum of political forces. >> reporter: the next goal, establishment within six months from now of a unity government that would among it's other duties over sea the creation of a new constitution. within 18 months elections that would take place under u.n.
5:36 am
supervision and with an emphasis on transparency and accountablity. a new sense of urgency surrounded the talk with a poll over the proceedings, it was clear they felt there was no time to waste >> europeans, arabs, east and west, they're all affected by terrorists who spread panic. the best response is actually coming together over coming our differences and trying together to lead the way towards peace in syria. >> reporter: one worry expressed by everyone involved was how a continuation of the war in syria would continue to create even more of a haven for i.s.i.l. and other extremist groups. >> reporter: while substantial agreements were reached, many outstanding questions still lyn angered such as which groups
5:37 am
involved in civil war other than i.s.i.l. would be considered as terrorists going forward. the other issue, a big issue, what is finally to become of syrian president bashar al-assad not everyone agrees one of the main syrian opposition leaders says the timeframe for a planned election is too ambitious. >> translation: this is one thing going on for the five years is one that has been trying to be resolved. it is difficult to get a solution in a year and a half. i think we need more time than that. if there is seriousness and trust, and a will to succeed, we will need two to three years to do this police in lebanon have arrested five syrians and a palestinian in connection with thursday suicide bombings.
