6:02 pm
the one man, gunman that got away, appeared to be driving the gunmen, helping them with their attacks on the cafes near the place de la republique where i'm standing now, he was driving the car abandoned in the eastern suburbs of paris. now, he's been named as salah abdeslam, he's 26. police say he's dangerous and possibly armed, there has been a remarkable development. it's been revealed, according to some of the agencies. the reporting, that three men were driving on the motor way. and he was actually in that car. the police stopped them, according to the reports and wave them through. they managed to see him, but failed to understand he was the gunmen they were looking for.
6:03 pm
it appears another police mistake has been made. my colleague neave barker followed theents. a moment of desperate panic, reports of gunshots send hundreds of people running for their lives. taking cover in nearby restaurants. a false alarm but a telling sign of the climate of fear gripping the french capital. the government banned large rallies. people tried to make sense of the mass murder that happens, that square became a place of mourning. since friday investigations have gained pace. in a paris suburb, broken glass is all that is left of an abandoned car, where police say they found several kalashnikovs. investigator are exploring the theory that it belongs to an attacker on the run. police launched a major manhunt
6:04 pm
and issued a notice for 26-year-old salah abdeslam, warning the public not to intervene, saying he's dangerous. at the bataclan concert hall where many died, frenics teams still gather evidence. new dramatic video when the gunmen opened fire. many thought it was concert. >> we were enjoying the concert. i thought it was fire crackers. i turned around and saw them. we br at the front. i turned around and saw them. >> seemed like they were hitting the stage, we knew that it was gunfire and needed to get out. >> reporter: in a video police prepare to storm the building. [ gunfire ] but a push-back and a hail of bullets. it was hear one of the killers left a vital clue, a severed finger that allowed investigator to identify him as
6:05 pm
29-year-old french national ismail mustafah, one of three who blew himself up. this is the edge of paris where mustafi, a french national of algearon dissent lived until the age of 21. it's a quite town. he was known to the authorities as a petty criminal, but never spent time in prison. in 2010 police flagged him as being a candidate for radicalization. he's one of three french nationals arrested. arrested in connection with the killings. police are looking into whether he travelled to syria and had contact with i.s.i.l. at the local mosque we met someone that knew him, saying he came from a good family. >> translation: i'm really shocked, i didn't expect it at all. you don't believe it when it's someone you know. >> reporter: he thinks the government failed to integrate young muslims in society.
6:06 pm
when we do something that interests them we're french, when it upsets them, we are foreign. france needs to integrate people. >> reporter: the mayor of the town had this to say. >> translation: sorry for things like this, but we don't give a dam where he was born. what matters is a kid from our country, a french kid could have become what he became. >> reporter: several of his family members were detained by the police for questioning. why what the french police and intelligence services are realising is that this was a well planned and sophisticated organization, and the attack does not appear to have been planned and carried out solely from paris. it now means that the focus of attention is moving northwards towards brussels. this is where many arrests have been made and my colleague paul brennan has been following developments there.
6:07 pm
>> there is a joint task force based in brussels involving french and other security services looking at how the terrorist network gathered ammunition and material to launch the attack on friday night in paris. the attention is not just focused on the one suspect named as salah abdeslam, who is, as yet, still undetected. he may be in paris. he was born in brussels. a large amount. effort will be directed at that. also, there's the clear reality that the french and belgium investigators need to work closer together. all that is a result of a high profile meeting between interior ministers on sunday.
6:08 pm
and they came out with strong intention to work closely together. >> translation: we specially need to intensify our collaboration. those people who were in belgium and contributed to the organization and execution - most were not known to the french intelligence services. the second point i wish to emphasize, is subject that have been on the agenda, marked as urgent have not been dealt with quickly. with regards to the fight against terrorism and other subjects of importance to the e.u., like migration, the time to make and implement decisions takes ages. you here what bernard cazeneave had to say. on television it was said we can't accept it. we need to look at how to tackle
6:09 pm
and eradicate the problem once and for all - it's a gigantic problem. there's no lack of wheel, but there may be a difficulty to carry out the desires to get on top of the issue . >> from the political front there has been intervention by former president nicolas sarkozy, he's asking for what could be seen as internment of the radicalized muslim in the communities here in france. here is exactly what he had to say. >> i suggest that we consider the possibility of putting people that are investigated in a residence understand surveillance, place them at home with an electronic bracelet so police and security know where they are going, where they were, what they were doing, and do so for as long as is needed to assess how dangerous these
6:10 pm
people are. intelligence sources mention that a warning was given to the french. it was mentioned that an attack was planned by the leader of i.s.i.l., and up to 19 men were trained in al-raqqa, which could flain where the air -- be taken over iraqi. 30 sortees have been flown during the course of this night. >> thank you for the update from paris. david live for us. france launched an air strikes against the stronghold in raqqa. the defence ministry says 10 fighter jets dropped at least 20 bombs, and the training camp and
6:11 pm
munitions store was destroyed. joining us via skype from new york is clint watts, a former special agent with the fbi joint terrorism task force. good to have you with us on al jazeera. france, the coalition doesn't hit raqqa often, what are they trying to do with the air strikes, other than to respond to the paris attacks, could we be strategically effective. >> i think it's as much about french domestic pom tigs as being effect -- politics as being effective. the french need to send a signal to turn the tables at i.s.i.s., and hit them in their homeland the way they were hit. i am sure they were given good targets and u.s. intelligence has been coordinating with the french, from what i have read. these are largely symbolics, reaching out to i.s.i.l., letting them know they won't stand for this.
6:12 pm
>> could be be part of a renewed campaign against i.s.i.l., could we see more cooperation between collision partners? >> the message to france as been delivered. i think you will see european countries - united kingdom, france and others - step up involvement against i.s.i.l. in iraq and syria. it doesn't address thousands of foreign fighters go to syria, and maybe returned to their homelands. they can attacks syria and irish all they want in the i.s.i.l. headquarters, about the the problem is they'll be here for many years to come. with respect what they are doing. with air strikes, how effect tiff is that. >> air strikes alone will not get rid of i.s.i.l. the coalition had hundreds if not thousands of sortees.
6:13 pm
what we need to do, what is starting to happen is take ground away from i.s.i.l. the islamic state exists and they are powered by the fact that they have gained controlled territory, we are seeing the kurdish forces push in and take back some of that ground. hopefully the trend will continue. >> have they gainedstrength because bashar al-assad is in power, and how much is the campaign against i.s.i.l. going to threaten the syrian regime? >> i think the syrian regime is setting itself up in a good position. i am sure bashar al-assad will go, the syrian regime will remain in some fashion in eastern syria. what is interesting, is why we take ground from i.s.i.l., it doesn't mean we'll see less terrorism regionally and globally, like we saw in paris. as i.s.i.l. retracts, we'll see
6:14 pm
them move from conurgencies attacks in syria clint watts, former agent joining us from new york. thank you for your time, we appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. >> u.s. president obama fold fellow world leaders they must eliminate i.s.i.l. to prevent more attacks, and was speaking at the g20 meeting in turkey. as bernard smith reports, there was little detail about a new strategy to defeat i.s.i.l. r at the g20, a minutes's silence. this was supposed to be about the global summit. from turkey that they need to do
6:15 pm
more. >> we have to more strongly express our cooperation in combatting terrorist. >> reporter: president obama says the united states will step up efforts to eliminate i.s.i.l. in syria. >> it's an attack on the civilized world. i am sure each said to president francis hollande and the french people we stand in solidarity with them in hunting council the perpetrators of the crime and bringing them to justice. >> reporter: the attorney-general said it offered a rare moment of opportunity to end the violence. >> our response needs to be rob oft, but always within the rule of law. and with respect for human rights ordinary we only fan the fire we are trying to put out. then a discrete handshake between president obama and russian's president which was after talks to resolve the syrian crisis.
6:16 pm
earlier, vladimir putin said a joint effort was needed to fight terror. in syria, there's no on the ground cooperation between russia and the u.s. at the moment in syria different groups have different priorities. the u.s. is fighting i.s.i.l. russia says it's doing the same, but is focussing fire power on groups opposed to bashar al-assad. turkey is concentrating on hitting the kurdish separatists p.k.k. at this summit there's the first hint that i.s.i.l. may face a more coordinated fight back i.s.i.l. being bush pushed
6:17 pm

6:18 pm
we'll do to protect our country. >> reporter: inside the debate haul the same question was arrived. bernie sanders applied that hillary clinton contributed to regional instability as a former u.s. senator. >> i would argue that the disastrous invasion of iraq, something that i strongly opposed has unravelled the region completely. >> i have said the invasion of iraq was a mistake. if we are going to tackle the problems posed by jihadi stream terrorism, we need to understand it. >> reporter: it was an exchange dominating the debate, and following had clinton's team struggling spin. >> she said that her voting for iraq was a mistake, and the lack of leadership and administration, and how they managed iraq. >> it is wasn't just a maek we
6:19 pm
an guage -- >> reporter: in february, the first nation nominating contest will be held. there were domestic issues discussed in the second democratic debate. given it comes a day after the paris attack, the candidate's positions on combatting i.s.i.l. are what are making headlines. >> reporter: the united nations has called for urgent talks. the government and opposition traded accusations about who is responsible for the spate of deaths. catherine wambua-soi reports from bujumbura. >> reporter: from his hideout in a neighbourhood in bujumbura, this man tells us police arrested and tortured him. we will not reveal his identity
6:20 pm
for security reasons. he says his hands and feet were bound by rope for the three days he was detained. and he was accused of participating in the political process against president pierre nkurunziza's presidential bid, and wanted him to admit he belongs to a rebel group. >> the police have their intelligence, their target. though know where the weapons are. >> reporter: many are worried about the murders that have been going on for months now. >> what started out as people's process has dangerously evolved to armed violence, people are regularly killed, and it's unclear who is carrying out the killing. >> saturday night gunmen shot and killed a young man an the street. and as before, this woman's husband was among nine murdered
6:21 pm
by unknown assailants. >> we have to be afraid. until now, i don't know who has killed my husband. >> some of the bodies found had hands and legs bound together. burundi's human rights commission had reports of retaliatory killings, no one climate responsibility. >> there are a number of people living in some in a neighbourhood who own guns and continued to use them against the police or against others. >> reporter: in response to this police are carrying out a security crackdown, many have been arrested in neighbourhoods regarded as opposition strongholds. >> i don't know a place where it leaves people in opposition, or a place where leave only one

6:23 pm
in the last 60 years, ebola and hunting have slashed numbers by 80%, there's 100,000 left. >> disease is a major influence in certain areas. not all areas. hunting is certainly the most dangerous threat to them in their existence right now, but the spread of logging, agriculture is having an impact on the environment. >> reporter: dave from the lincoln park zoo preserved the habitat for the past 16 years. >> the rest of the group is coming up >> reporter: he helped to turn animal hunters into wildlife trackers, who protect their former pray. >> this is the type of job i feel good about and can make a living from it. >> reporter: this is emily and her first baby. we have to wear masks to make sure there's no exchange of disease either way. they are habituated.
6:24 pm
researchers spent years making sure that they be accustomed to human presence. despite the fact that they are threatened by logging, agricultural encroachment, and people hunting for their meat, they are comfortable with having us this close. >> endangered chimpanzees have the intelligence to craft tools, turning a termite mound into a meal. they have no defense against a dwindling habitat. there were as many as a million 50 years ago, and as few as 170,000 today. chimps are more territorial than gorillas, and less likely to survive a false move. >> what happens to logging is you force one to be displaced to on top of another. once you have two communities, you have chimpanzee carnage. >> reporter: to protect them researchers spent years getting to know them through daily contact. that can be terrifying. >> silver back will charge. >> reporter: charging you.
6:25 pm
. >> charging attackers and ourselves. it's risky. people are bitten, it's stressful. in the end, it's important to have a couple of groups like this here, habituated so we can learn about them and educate people about them. >> reporter: in persuading people to preserve the vanishing habitats, it may be the last best hope for future generations now, voters in argentina are heading back to the polls for a run-off vote to choose a new president. outgoing leader cristina fernandez de kirchner is barred from running for a third term. her successor vowed to carry on her plan. daniel scioli got 37% of votes, short of 45% needed to win out right and faces nick magyar, running for the conservative

6:35 pm
won't give up. >> reporter: away from these locations, so solemn, so quiet, the police investigation is widening, taking in locations from belgium to montreal, to the -- to montenegro, to the isles of greece. that is not the concern here. as people remembered those killed in unseasonably mild weather as they ate and drank on the terraces, enjoying a friday night out earlier julia mcdonald spoke to the i-e.u. ambassador to syria and turkey, and asked what it reveals about i.s.i.l.'s strategy. >> i think we have seen a string of massive attacks by i.s.i.l. in ankara. the russian airliner. what is new here is the paris attack, is that for the first time we have suicide bombers
6:36 pm
operating on e.u. territory, so far it was car bombs. multiple attacks. accord nitted in brussels. we failed, expectation, in january after the first attack that there was austerity within, rad iicalized use. but now it is a deliberate plan and the political leadership uses the word war from within. >> ambassador why have we been divoid of poll dpi when it comes -- devoid of policy when it comes to i.s.i.l. >> for a long time the west is hesitant about what to do. this is revised. the russian intervention changed the game.
6:37 pm
so we will have - whether we like it or not. more coordination with russia, perhaps some sort of intelligence sharing with the syrian regime, and then a big concern is the turkish-syria border. efforts have been made. france has made efforts, cooperated with turkey. for four years, the border from turkey into syria and back is open to jihadis of all sorts, and that is now a major concern discussed today in the margins of the g20. >> what does it mean for e.u. that we'll seymour. does it mean a different sort of cooperations. in this place it was planned in one case and carried out in another. >> and with more responsibilities elsewhere,
6:38 pm
there's a suspicion of someone coming from germany with weapons, weapons from the west. so far there is counterterrorism accord nation, these responsibilities are national. they are not under the treaties, and they depend on different services, depending on the countries, some is police, some is intelligence. now there is going to be a major revamping on the issue inevitably, because the political impact of carnage like on friday in paris is massive. you can see it in belgium, and it is felt over europe. >> bodies of 15 african refugees have been found by the egyptian police in the sinai. security officials say it appears they were shot as they tried to enter israel. eight others have been taken to hospital nine people have been arrested in lebanon in connection with thursday's twin bombings in beirut.

seven syrians and two lebanese are being held. they are suspected of being involved and smuggling those involved into the country, attacks killed 43 people in the southern suburb of the city. i.s.i.l. claims responsibility for the attacks. the operation and planned to happen at the hospital. the security measures made them change the target to a busy area during rush hour. >> kurdish fighters captured sinjar from i.s.i.l., saying u.s. air strikes helped them succeed, as we report from inside sinjar. the cooperation is crucial in the ongoing fight against the armed group. kurdish peshmerga fighters captured sinjar without resistance. they celebrate on the streets, or what is left of them. air power is a maimingour reason for the -- major reason for the
6:40 pm
victory on the ground. u.s.-led air strikes hit the targets. >> we cut the road into sinjar into days before and coordinated effort with our coalition partners. we didn't see residents from i.s.i.l., air strikes played a crucial role. >> a local journalist said i.s.i.l. fighters were perhaps retreating to reinforce i.s.i.l. what gave the peshmerga the advantage was coalition-led air strikes, the building a likely to be hit. it's concertinaed in. what the kurdish peshmerga are saying is they need to clear the buildings before anyone can go back in. taking over the town is the first step. >> reporter: that step took months of plans. the peshmerga commander says the air strikes will be useful in future operations.
6:41 pm
coalition air strikes are an important factor. without air strikes a ground offensive will stall. >> certainly it's made a difference in sinjar, while the soldiers cover a pro-i.s.i.l. slogan with graffiti, other areas are under i.s.i.l. control. particular in northern iraq. there, the peshmerga want more u.s. help. after sinjar, they are likely to get it. it may be a different story in anbar, where a main fighting force is the shia militia, the u.s. will not provide them with air sport. they are entrenched in anbar. >> a search for survivors is under way in eastern china after a land slide. rain swept mutt and woks. at least 16 people died and 21 others are missing. one person has been found alive

6:43 pm
children are particularly vulnerable. the country is a hub for a billion dollar global industry. the philippine government is stepping up sites against child pornography but admits resources are stretched. the number of government raids and arrests are increasing. so, too, is the number of child sex dense across the philippines. c european journalist has been working undercover as a paedophile to track down predators. the information he's given the police is expected to lead to arrests in various countries. he's traumatized by what he has seen. >> the evils of that nature, that is eats you as a journal. >> it eats your soul also, especially if you want to go into that, as i have done. it has a traumatising effect.
6:44 pm
they dehumanize a child, they take it and put in a monster. >> reporter: the rescued children are looked after by social welfare department staff and will start a new life. some kids have been abused for more than five years, the youngest is six. the she's been abused since the age of four. >> the social fabric has been deeply damaged. i think it speaks to desperation and poverty. it has to be an absolute priority. it has to be first-line priority, and i believe that it is being given enormous emphasis by the interagency council against trafficking. the children lost their childhood to the global sex industry, and many more filipino

6:48 pm
pay farmers more. these are the family businesses, everyone is pitching in. you can't cut the salaries or fire people. people are just going to leave. tourism doesn't offer a safe hope, with a 23% tax on ferry tickets and restaurants. people fear that the industry will sink as visitors flee to countries with lowers tax. it was meant to compensate tore distance, the cost of shipping goods to and from hurts the profit margins. the islands enjoyed the discount. they are losing it when they need it most. they are defenseless against a series of v.a. c hikes levied across the country. it's a calamitous coincidence. >> reporter: the mayor says municipal costs will go up by $3 million, and is bringing more islands in into a lawsuit to challenge the tax hike and is prepared to go all the way to the european court. some here are preparing what
6:49 pm
they see as necessary disobedience. >> they'll abandon sheep and goats and find ways to survive that won't pu money in state coffers. they operate on a simply equation, for the state to five, they must survive, and for them to five they must veet the state. >> time for the sport. >> thank you, for the second formula 1 race in a row. nico rosberg finishes ahead much lewis hamilton, this time to win the brazilian grand prix. lewis hamilton has not won in nine attempts. >> reporter: a minute's silence was held to remember those killed in the paris attacks and road traffic accidents. world champion lewis hamilton has not won in the home of
