pain and suffering for people in paris and other parts of the globe bernard smith is live for us. the forces have been trying to soften borders and barriers to trade. tell us where this meeting is now heading when it comes to border controls. >> this is only a draft of a statement that the agency has got hold of. they're suggesting that they're agreeing to strengthen border controls. we don't know what that would mean because those significant borders must be here in turkey, the greece with greece and the union. it is impossible to seal it completely and people seeking refuge are allowed in by turkey.
8:03 am
of course, it's other border, the sea border, it is easy but draerngous to cross, that's why a lot of refugees have been making that journey. what does that mean? what will turkey do? will it make it harder for people to cross the border. the other border, you can go from greece to europe without having your identity checked or your vehicle checked. maybe the europeans are looking at changing those regulations. we wait to find out what it all means strong words when it comes to i.s.i.l. what is being considered on that front? >> i think we've seen - although this is supposed to be a summit about the global economy, it has been overshadowed completely by the paris attacks, and previous
8:04 am
i.s.i.l. attacks from the summer and buy root to the bombing of a plane flying over sinai. they're all put on the agenda. ban ki-moon has said that our response particularly to paris needs to be robust but always within the rule of law and with respect for human rights otherwise we will only fan the fire we are trying to put out. i.s.i.l. on the agenda here. more press conferences on monday tomorrow is the summit ends, but we're getting the impression certainly from the leaders that have spoken already that there seems to be a more determined effort to coordinate attempts to fight i.s.i.l. thanks for that. french prosecutors are describing friday's deadly attacks in paris as a highly coordinated multi national
8:05 am
operation. 129 people were killed and 352 injured when a group of gunmen and suicide bombers targeted six locations across the capital. police say they found an abandoned car in an eastern suburb of paris. inside were several a.k.47 rifles that were used in the attacks. belgium police have relict three people-- arrested three people. one person has been identified as a 29-year-old parisian native. police don't know who the other attackers were. passports, though, have been found at the scene and police are trying to verify who they belong to. neave barker. >> reporter: french military on patrol in the streets of paris. the second day of mourning. the treat outside the bataclan concert hall where more than 8 on people die remain sealed off as forensic teams gather
8:06 am
evidence. newspaper amateur video tap toured the moment the killers opened fire on concert goers. in another video police prepare to storm the building. they are pushed back in a hail of bullets. one of the killers left a vital clue, a severed finger that has identified him as a 29-year-old french national. six members of his family, including his brother and father have been arrested. >> translation: he caught the attention of police due to a violation of public power from 2004 to 20 so he was pronounced guilty eight times but was never imprisoned. in 2010 he was black lifted to the police due to extreme about behaviour but was never classified as part of an extremist group. >> reporter: police say they have also found a syrian
8:07 am
passport at the site of the stade de france. it was used by someone claiming rev fudge on the greek island of leros in october. several men have also been arrested in belgium. police say they're connected to a car found by the bataclan. >> search warrants have been executed. these are still ongoing as we speak judge in germany a man was arrested earlier in a car loaded with explosives who might also be linked. mounting tributes to those who lost their lives. many remain in a critical condition. huge crowds gathered here 10 months ago. now the authorities are warning against large rallies. they're still worried about security. investigators say the attacks were part of a well coordinated cross-border operation. they're now looking beyond france for more clues.
8:08 am
this colorful city is struggling to understand the mass murder that happened here. the french government is calling for unity going live now to jacky rowland. she is in paris for us. tell us what's going on there. >> reporter: people here, although the police have asked people to stay at home and they're worried about big crowds gathering in public places because of the security threat, nevertheless people are coming. there has been a slow trickle of people since the morning. they are coming to lay flowers, candles and stand in front of this statue which has become a shrine to the people who were attacked on friday night. i've managed to find three young people here who are going to share with us now their reasons for coming. thank you very much for joining
8:09 am
us live. to start with, why did you want to come down here today? >> i would like to pay my respects to families and victims' families and to show that we are not going to give up in front the threats. it's very important to me to be there today because i'm young, i'm french and i could have been in this bar, i could have been in this concert bar and i could have died on friday and my friends too, my family too, and we were thinking to victims today. >> reporter: you were actually at a party on friday night not too far away from the attacks is that right? >> yeah. we have close, very fast. we don't have see, just watch
8:10 am
tv, some minutes, but we don't think directly of that. it's unthinkable. >> reporter: what about you? do you see yourself changing your behaviour, changing how you go out and socialise? >> no. i'm not afraid. i think french people will - is not afraid, but personally, i'm really angry, and really sad, you know, but i'm not afraid and i will not change my way of life after this dramatic event. >> anyone can take the liberty to work in auswich. >> reporter: thank you for that who came to share with us their feelings as young people bearing in mind that it was largely young people who were victims of those attacks.
8:11 am
thank you all three of you the investigation is still shaping up. where is that heading? >> reporter: well, really the police station have been making quite a lot of progress in the 36 hours or so since the attack. some of the key elements in the investigation are the discovery of the black piiat. we first heard of that car when the prosecutor spoke on saturday. he said that that car had been used in two of the shooting attacks on the restaurants. the car was found to the east of paris. obviously, forensic experts are going over it now and obviously other key things like a gps could also, if it exists in the car, could be useful in tracking the movements of that group of people. the other key parts of the investigation, as we know, one of the attackers at the bataclan nightclub was positively identified on saturday. police have now detained seven people, members of his family, and close people.
8:12 am
they're being questioned now under french anti terror law the police can keep them for questioning for four days. so they have until wednesday to try and get as much information as possible because clearly the police now are trying to put together a jigsaw pes you will. they have small points, they want to join up the dots, find the connections, find out who the other attackers were, whether they are accomplices or are part of a wider network who could be a threata to people here in france or to another country london, chair of contemporary middle east studies at london, school of economics. good to have you with us. this operation at this point, i should say the attacks from france, they're looking like a very international operation, right? >> absolutely. first of all, this is a very
8:13 am
complex operation. seven suicide bombers, seven suicide belts, three coordinated teams attacking six targets at the same time, strategic targets where the president and the public were watching a game. at the same time, i mean think what it has taken. in terms of casing, in terms of preplanning, in terms of choosing the targets. think of how much ammunition it has taken. think of how much explosives. you need explosives skills. this is a major major operation, and also what this tells us is that massive security failure on the part of the security establishment in paris, in france. this is not the first time you would have expected the france security establishment to put its house in order after what happened in january during the attack against the newspaper.
8:14 am
so all in all, i think it's going to take the french authorities quite a long time to piece together what has happened and why such a major collapse of the security system in paris why france? given all the resources that you've just mentioned and planning and focus and attention, why is that being paid to france when there are so many countries which are participating in this so-called wore against i.s.i.l.? >> you're talking about targets of opportunities. think of what has happened in the last few days. the russian jet in which 224 russians were killed, alleged by i.s.i.s. the attacks in the heart of beirut, dozens killed and injured. again, the attacks, we don't talk about what happened in baghdad, and now there are attacks in paris. paris is very special.
8:15 am
you have obviously the militans of various al-qaeda variety have assets in paris. obviously, major assets. obviously the only person, the only suspect who has been identified is french boy and the two killers during the january attacks were french. what does it tell you? it tells you that the various groups have major people in the country, that you have french people who basically buy into this ideology. it's easy to have weapons and ammunition. it is an open city, but at the same time we should not just blame the french and say, look, the french could have done more. who knows what's going to happen. here i am in the u.k. and i can tell you the british authorities are terrified. they say it's a matter of time. they say the virus is spreading. they have the capacity, the organisation skills and unfortunately you have some
8:16 am
delewd young men who buy into this ideology and kill civilians randomly and brutally in the way that we witnessed on friday evening do you think one of the outcomes of this attack has been the world waking up to the importance of trying to find a political solution to syria to sort of fill the vacuum that allows groups like this to flourish? >> i think this is really the most important question about the elements. the question is how do you basically put out the fires in the heart of the areas, in syria, iraq, libya and yemen. how do you end the wars in syria and iraq? this is giving i.s.i.s. and al-qaeda central and in the peninsula the idea logical ammunition. without ending the civil wars in
8:17 am
syria and iraq, this particular virus or disease will spread near and far as we have witnessed. yes, tragic, it is painful what happened in france. almost 300,000 people have been killed, probably a million injured. think of the tens of thousands of iraqis who have been killed and 11 million syrians between refugees and displaced people. it is one of the greatest tragedys since world war ii indeed thanks so much for your thoughts. there's much to come on the al jazeera news hour. the u.s. democrating hopefuls take to the stage for a second time. kurdish fighters make a grim discovery after pushing i.s.i.l. out of the iraqi town of sinjar. sporting themes and fans across
8:18 am
the world pay their own tributes to victims of the paris attacks. the e.u.'s foreign policy chief says finding a solution to the crisis in syria has taken on a new meaning because of the paris attacks and progress has been made at talks in vienna with an agreement and a timetable for a cease fire and a political transition. reporting from the austrian capital. >> reporter: while the attacks in paris may have over shadowed saturday's talks about syria, they also underscored a renewed diplomatic commitment to end that country's war. make no mistake aring that resolve is only growing stronger in the wake of this unspeakable brutality and i think you will agree with me that there was a broad based, a sense of
8:19 am
revulsion of horror and a deep commitment to do more to try to bring an at the end to the violence in the world. >> reporter: an establishment of formal negotiations between representatives of the syrian opposition and the syrian regime. the hope is that those discussions to be held under the auspices of the special envoy for syria would begin no later than january 1. >> translation: the syrian government has already informed the envoy of the composition of their delegation and today he has a task to find the composition of the syrian opposition delegation which should be representative appeared reflect the whole spectrum of political forces. >> reporter: the next goal, the establishment within six months from now, of a unity government
8:20 am
would see the new constitution. finally within 18 months elections that would take place under u.n. supervision and with an emphasis on transparency and accountablity. a new found sense of urgency surrounded the talks saturday. it was clear the delegations felt there was no time on to waste. >> europeans, arabs, east and west, international community is all affected by terrorism and those that try to divide us and spread panic and the best response to this is actually coming together, 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
8:21 am
other extremist groups. whilst substantial agreements were reached, many outstanding questions still lyn angered such as which groups were involved in the war and terrorists going forward. the other outstanding issue a big a question now as it has been in all previous talks, what ask finally to become - is finally to become of president bashar al-assad earlier i spoke to a member of the syrian opposition and a professor of political science. i started by asking him his thoughts on the road map agreed to by world powers in vienna. >> i don't think it's going to do the job because it has not addressed the main issue of what to do with the regime. it seems to be accepting that the regime at this point. the americans have not presented
8:22 am
any strong position as far as those negotiations are concerned and russia seemed to have its own way of supporting do you think there will be talks by january 1 between opposition groups and the regime? >> i think the talks might start, it might invite some syrian opposition members who may not represent the majority of syrian opposition, but i don't think this will go anywhere so a repeat of what we've seen in geneva? >> probably worse. i was then the spokesperson and i was a member of that negotiation group, and we had a lot of hopes. there was good supports from within the opposition, but currently things just seem to become more bleak and less hopeful because iran and russia
8:23 am
seems to have won over the western allies in terms of-- in keeping bashar al-assad? >> yes. insist that he should stay and they're not talking a coalition government within the current regime that leads to the next question. can there be a more inclusive temporary coalition government, can there be elections in 18 months if bashar al-assad remains in power? as you read all the opposition groups, are there any groups that would accept that? >> i don't think so. i mean, the first step really to have any transition is to take bashar al-assad away or to hava a solution where there are some transition, a clear transition from the current regime that has, you know, attacked more cities in syria and there was brutal force to stay in power, but as long as this is not
8:24 am
addressed, i don't think anything can lead into a real resolution of the conflict were the opposition at all consulted and what world powers were doing in vienna, how did they arrive at something that you're telling me now there isn't a sing opposition group that will accept? >> the opposition has been side lined. basically now this is a negotiation between russia, iran, the united states and its allies. the oppositions have been left out to impose something on - >> it is that the friends of syria, the supporter of the opposition now once quiet in syria, but that comes at a high cost because it led into the eyes of all threes conflicts. syria would fear the state because it would not be able to uplift again the condition in
8:25 am
syria the bodies of dozens of yazidis people have been found in a mass grave in northern iraq. the discovery was made after kurdish fighters recaptured the town of sinjar from i.s.i.l. fighters. as imran khan reports from there, 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 that were found on this site. they include bones, hair and personal items. this is a person who says members of his family 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. >> reporter: according to the u.n. i.s.i.l. killed at least 3000 yazidis men and women when it took control of this region

8:27 am

8:37 am
forest in this area are being lost at an alarming rate. it is in the north of the republic of congo. the remote 2 of 0 square kilometer area forms part of the national park. its isolation is largely protected it from loggers, but demand for hard woods and palm oil has drawn developers and started to eat away that is home of the gorillas. live from us triangle in the republic of congo. i've heard you've had quite a journey just to get to where you're talking to us. tell us about that >> that's right. to get to this remote corner of the world is a two day drive from the capital to the nearest village. they you take an hour car drive
8:38 am
down unpaved roads. you take a conoe down two rivers. to get here is a six-hour hike including some of it through waist-high waters. in that time my cameraman had leaches, i've been bitten by ants, we've had a near encounter with an el front. when you get here this is pristine and a safe place for endangered gorillas and chimps. we have seen both of them here today. we took a look ashdz the northern congo and this is what we saw. take a look. these are the eyes of an endangered blood line. western low lands gorillas like this one can relax here where they're protected from logging and hunters. it's downtime for most of them right now. since 1988 they've gone from vulnerable to endangered to
8:39 am
critically endangered. their numbers have been slashed by 80%. there are perhaps 100,000 left. >> disease has beena an influence in areas, hunting is the most dangerous threat to them in their existence now, but the spread of logging, agriculture is also having an impact on their environment. >> reporter: he has preserved ape habitats for 16 years. >> the rest of the group is coming up >> reporter: he has helped turn animal hunterss into wildlife tackers who now protect their former prey. >> translation: i feel good about this job. >> reporter: this is a mother and first baby. we have to wear masks to make sure there is no exchange of disease. researchers have made sure that they can bea accustomed to human
8:40 am
presence of the . they're perfectly comfortable with having us this close. they have the intelligence to craft their own tools to turn a termite mound into a meal, but even they have no defense against a dwindling habitat. there's as few as 17 on,000 today. they're more territorial than gorillas. what happens with logging is you effectively force one to just be displaced to be on top of the other. once you get two communities going together, then you really do see chimp carnage. they spend years getting to know them through daily contact and that can be terrifying. >> the silver back will start chinching the trackers and
8:41 am
ourselves-- charging. it is stressful. people get bitten, in the end we think it's important to have a couple of groups habituated so we can educate people about them. in persuading people not to log may be the best hope for these animals. this is a research camp here. the reason it's such an ideal place is that while there are western low land gorillas in announcer:s, most of those were born in captivity. because humanity has hardly touched this area, this is a rare place for researchers to study how they act. they found some interesting things, for instance, the chimps have have been found beating their chests. that's something gorillass do.
8:42 am
it seems that the chimps have learned this from the apes. we are one of only 20 people to have seen this. that's why here they are safe whereas in the rest of this part of the world, encroachment are diminishing their habititats interesting look there. thank you. president of myanmar has made his first speech since the election. he has reiterate saying there will be a peaceful transition of power. n.l.d. party led by aung san suu kyi clinched the majority of seats in parliament. >> reporter: all duties will be transferred to the next government according to the schedule. we will make sure it is smooth and stable without having to worry about anything in argentina political

are in key government positions. this is a student activist and is part of a campaign to show his support for the ruling party's presidential candidate. >> translation: in the last year and this national government, political debate has been center here in argentina. we are a group of young people that believe that this government has started a process that needs to continue. >> reporter: during the dictatorship thousands of young people were killed in what many say was a fight for social justice. when argentina returned to democracy in 1983 young people stayed away from politics. there is a reason why they have become interested in politics once again. >> translation: terrorism is a fear of commitment. the parents that suffered the dictatorship did not want their children to have a social or political commitment. they did it out of love and fear. it could cost you your life.
8:45 am
>> reporter: during the dictatorship in the 1970s and 80s, students in the universities were the heart of the opposition. in the last 12 years, political activism has increased amongst young people. political activism has historically been associated with a ruling party, the opposition candidate is working to change that. hundreds of young people are going house by house trying to take his message out. this is one of the leader and claims that young people want to be part of the country's political future. >> translation: the young people in our party are not combative, initially because they were part of an elite. but that has changed. people want to get involved.
