1:00 pm
>> it is 6:00 here in london. 18 hours gmt. wherever you're watching this al jazeera news hour, i'm david foster, these are some of the stories we'll be covering in the next 60 minutes. the pilot of the russian fighter jet said that he was given no warning before being shot down by the turkish military. the bombing of an afghan hospital last month in which 30 people were killed. isil says it carried out the suicide-bomb attack that left 12
1:01 pm
people dead in tunisia on tuesday. and pope francis arrives in kenya as his first visit to africa as head of the catholic church. >> we'll have all your sport, including all "a" look ahead at the champions league. >> turkey gave us no warning. the words of the navigator of a russian jet shot down by turkey on monday. he was talking to media near the russian air base in latakia. the navigator said it was impossible that he and his pilot, who is thought to be killed were inside turkish air space when they were fired upon. that contradicts the turkish government's position. it said that the jet was given
1:02 pm
at least ten warnings before being shot down and turkey has released audio recordings it says are of the incident in which a voice can be heard saying change your heading. russia's government's position sergei lavrov said that the incident was a planned provocation by turkey. we have more from rory challands. >> murderers, they chanted. many russians are angry with turkey, and protests have occurred in a few cities in the past hours. this is the turkish embassy in moscow where eggs were thrown. >> this is the embassy of murderers, people instead of being honest partners showed their beastly grin. >> their pilot was shot to death while parachuting from his burning plane. a marine died and a helicopters
1:03 pm
with destroyed. but the russian jet's navigator had a lucky escape. >> he was safe. the pilot's navigator. he's already at our base. he's like all the others involved in the operation, including the rescue operation, they will receive state awards. the ministry of defense has come up with this proposal and the plane commander will be rewarded the star 69 hero russian federation posthumously. >> there has no warning. there had been no contact whatsoever. so we started the combat course as usual. keep in mind the speed of the bomber and the f-16 fighter jet. >> another ministry of defense proposal has been put into action sending sophisticated air defense missile system to syria. russia wants to show that it has the ability to blow turkey's planes out of the sky, too. the kremlin has a tricky task
1:04 pm
here. they said there has to be serious consequences for what vladimir putin has called a treacherous stan stab in the back. but turkey is a nato member, and that's reason enough to tread carefully. >> sergei lavrov said that russia does not want to go to war with turkey. they just have questions about the actions of turkey's leadership. in istanbul turkey's president defended what air force has done. >> nobody should expect us to remain silent when our borders security is breached. our rights and our rights of independence are undermined. they have no intention of creating this incident. we are only defending our own security and the rights of our brothers. >> turkey wants russia's air attacks to stop. it insists isil is not operating in that part of northern syria,
1:05 pm
and that russia knows this. rory challands, al jazeera, moscow. >> not long ago turkey released audio recordings, we're preparing those for you. but in the meantime these are the words that we managed to work out at the moment. this is the turkish air force speaking. you're approaching turkish air space. change your heading south immediately. now let's go to al jazeera's jamal live in ankara. so we have an en pass. the co-pilot, who is alive, said not in turkish air space, no warning. we've recordings released head to head between the two countries. how have they brokered an agreement between themselves without these matters escalating further? >> well, that is an interesting question, david, because the day started off from the turkish
1:06 pm
perspective they believe they made all the right diplomatic overtures towards russia. president erdogan and prime minister both said that they did not want to--they wanted, rather, to de-escalate. they did not want the situation to get worse. they stood by what the military did. they said they were only defending turkish sovereignty and were not attacking the russian plane because it was a russian plane. those audio recordings that you mentioned, david, one of the first words that came in is one "n" one of the recordings we were listening to here in ankara. it starts off by saying unidentified aircraft. that's the turkish air force. that's as far as the turks are concerned. further proof that they didn't know what the aircraft was. they attacked it because it was an unknown plane entering with unknown intentions. really, that's neither here nor there in the sense that the
1:07 pm
plane has been down. the damage has been done. now it is about damage limitation. that's where the diplomatic emphasis is as far as turkey is concerned. an incident like this can't go without retaliation. the tourish foreign minister after speaking to his counterpart for an hour over the phone, a lot of hope is being put on some sort of diplomatic resolution as what is a quick escalation in terms of the turkish russian relationships. >> since you mentioned that, jamal, thank you. since you mentioned diplomacy, let's go to james bays with the latest from new york. nato member attacking and downing a russian plane. it's a tough one, and in diplomatic circles this is where you earn your stripes. >> this is a very serious incident. there is no doubt about that.
1:08 pm
it is going to do very serious damage between turkey and russia. all the other nations involved, i suspect turkey and russia in the end want to de-escalate the situation. we know other nato members want this to b remain a dispute between turkey and russia rather than the nato alliance. when there is a row between two countries there are all sorts of things that can happen. you summon the diplomat from the other country and you give them a talking to. well, that has happened. the next stage, you perhaps you recall your ambassador from the capital, the consultations. that has not happened. beyond that you break diplomatic relations. that has not happened. and you can even threaten military reaction in response. that has not happened. so far i don't think this is escalating in as dangerous of a way i think some people might have feared at the very
1:09 pm
beginning of this. i think it's worth telling you what the current president of the u.n. security council matthew rye croft said, he'll be be call forgive de-escalation, and there are some signs that those calls are being heeded. diplomats here at the united nations point to the fact that the u.n. security council has not been called to meet on this. russia is a member of the security council. it could have called a meeting. turkey is not a member, but it could have asked one of its allies to call a meeting. that has not happened. i think for now earn wants this to remain a dispute between two countries rather than a big international dispute. >> it's the matter of losing face as well. when you have russia saying there will be serious consequences, presumably it has to do something or it looks like its backing down. >> it has to do something. but remember there are very close ties with these countries economically. there is trade, tourism, energy
1:10 pm
deals, so they are--their economies are quite tied together. i think that they'll an little careful when they think of what action to pursue on this. the one thing that i think we've got to remember, david, this is the worrying part of this. this has happened once. they have not put in any sort of system. we haven't had that meeting between the turkish foreign minister and the russian foreign minister. they talked about a possible meeting, but no date has been set. someone needs to put it in the system so it does not happen again. maybe they can de-escalate it this time, but if it happens again it could be very serious, indeed. >> thank you very much. in support of the assad government, northwest syria, is continuing. we have this report. >> the russian warplanes have carried out dozens of raids early morning against syrian
1:11 pm
opposition locations in northern latakia. the mountains behind me have been attacked by the russian raids. ground forces launched attacks against the village of the northern mountain. regime forces tried to advance towards the mountain of the kurds. the situation here is very similar to the countryside of hama. when they stride to storm the area with heavy aircraft raids, bombardment and shelling. tens of thousands of people have been forced to leave their homes and head to the mountainous area on the syrian turkish border facing severe cold and very bad humanitarian situation. >> france's parliament is in favor of extending airstrikes in syria. the french government has given the statement for the national assembly on the case for further
1:12 pm
french military operations in syria. french fighter jets intensify their raids on syria after the paris attacks. president hollande will have a meeting with the germ chancellor angela merkel in paris. well, after four days of what was described as a lockdo lockdown, the underground system has reopened in the capital of brussels. sense of normalcy has returned as troops are out and about. the police have launched a serious of raids in search of a number of key witnesses linked to the paris attacks. our correspondent in paris is neave barker. >> after four days of high alert, most underground metro lines opening returning to a sense of normalcy in the morning commute. but people are still anxious.
1:13 pm
>> of course we have to be careful because anything can happen. danger is everywhere. >> below and above ground there is still a heavy military police presence. the vehicles pulled over. a thousand extra personnel have been called to patrol brussels. every few minutes a reminder that this is a country in the paris attacks along with people who may be planning more. >> as well as the metro systems, schools and universities have reopened. they have retained the highest security level, level number 4 which means that an attack is viewed as imminent. the government said it's not just acting on faith. >> belgium has issued an arrest warrant for this man. he was was part of the paris attack. despite several raids and multiple arrests there is still little progress in the
1:14 pm
26-year-old suspect who is wanted by the paris government. the policat universities students are arriving back at campus. armed police stand guard. and the main library remains closed. here students try to make sense of the change of global events that suddenly without warning has had such a big impact on their lives. >> maybe there will be no more cops, no more soldiers. we feel the threat that still feels present. >> the government said the alert level will remain at the max for at least another week. the price of keeping europe safe. many question how long this can last.
1:15 pm
neave barker. >> we have a deluge hitting the capital. ready or not. the massive dinosaur graveyard in china where they're unearthing secrets from a distant past. and we have the golden state warriors making the nba history. and raul has the details in all the sports news. >> the u.s. commander in afghanistan was killed. it was reported to be human error. it was described as a tragedy, avoidable accident. >> these are examples of human
1:16 pm
and procedural airs. the report determined as the operation proceeded, the commander requested the aircraft to engage a building that the air crew mistakenly believed was the headquarters. >> let's go to rosalind in washington, d.c. they're saying that it was human error. they're not saying much more than that. >> that's because the actual report, which general campbell and his spokesperson were referring to, still has not been made public. that's because they're going through the reports to make sure that classified information is not released inadvertently before they make the report public. at the moment people are having to take general campbell and his spokesperson are saying at their word. it is worth pointing out, however, that the afghan president ashraf ghani said he's
1:17 pm
satisfied with the outcome of the report conducted by the u.s. military. one other report, even though reporters were asked repeatedly whether there should be an independent non-u.s. government investigation into what happened into the doctors without borders in kunduz. they said if there was going to be more investigation it would be by the u.s. government, basically saying that they were not inclined to go in with an independent probe. >> we do know that some people have been suspended from their duties. >> that's right. they say that the special forces commander, who was overseeing this operation, as well as the people who were taking part in the operation, have been suspended. but they don't want to obviously identify them. they don't want to say whether they're going to be court-martialed for their actions, or if some lesser
1:18 pm
punishment might be? coming. they also refused to address questions during the press briefing in kabul a few hours ago about who ultimately would be taking responsibility for the deadly bombing of the doctors without borders hospital. some were even asking whether general john campbell, who is the head of u.s. forces in afghanistan, should be responsible, should resign, should take the fall for this, and they would not answer those questions. but certainly there is concern about whether or not some people very low level people are going to be responsible for something that turned out to be not just deadly but traumatic for the people who had sent their loved ones to that facility. >> thank you. well, isil has said its behind tuesday's deadly bus attack in central tunisia, which killed 12 presidential guards. the suicide-bomber detonated a device containing ten kilos of
1:19 pm
explosives. the prime minister said that the country is at war with what they call terrorists. >> flowers at the scene of the attack. the wreckage of the bus has been removed. investigators are trying to work out how this could have happen happened. many tunisians want answers. >> the bomb went off in the middle of rush hour. the target appears to have been the presidential guard. but four members of the public were also injured. >> a doing pediatrician lost their lives. that is way too much. tunisian people always find a way to recover from similar incidents, but we're not used to this kind of thing. >> the president has declared a state of emergency. this gives the police. >> the state of emergency
1:20 pm
actually is giving a possibility for security forces, but also just to be more sensible and more quick in terms of taking action. >> in a show of defiance the international film festival will continue its screening. this musician said that tunisians must continue their way of life. >> i hope the government stops the curfew and the film festival can continue. >> there were two previous attacks on tourist this year. a previous state of emergency and increased security in the country in this latest attack. the tunisian government will have to come up with a strategy to deal with an armed group

1:22 pm
tolerance and cohesion will be a big issue a group that has carried out several attacks in kenya, uganda, somalia and between muslims and christians particularly in kenya. he spoke to protect young people, to renew humanity, and reconciliation, and bring peace and healing and attend to the needs of the poor. many are keen to hear his message on corruption. the president himself has declared it a threat to national security. we don't expect the pope to be specific on national issues and politics, but people want him to set the tone and to give guidance. >> yemen's president abd rabbuh mansur hadi in yemen's third

1:33 pm
we'll look into this a bit more now. in washington, d.c. a middle east researcher at the center for a new american security something of an expert. nick, if i may say so, in this area we saw the disadvantaged turk men, women and children, in that report, but they are also a considerable fighting force, is that right? >> yes, the syrian turk men are organized into brigades. they are a fighting force in northern latakia, where they're part of a rebel coalition. and one turk man group group in particular in the battle space, has received missiles, which is the calling card of u.s.-vetted, u.s. approved syrian rebel groups. >> are they allied with those other rebel groups that one might say are regarded with much
1:34 pm
disdain in the west such as the al nusra front? >> in the northern latakia battle space, and the two mountain ranges there, they operate in joint operations, and other smaller militant south some of which include fighters from the can you cause caucuses. the situation is quite fluid. there is a lot of failuring in terms o of military. >> there are mixed motivations in general the syrian turk men rebel groups have expressed a desire to topple assad, to be able t to be in the governance
1:35 pm
that recognizes their ethno-linguistic rights, in particular to be able to use the turkish language. and some fighters do have a hard line perspective, and would like to institute a form of rule post assad that more resembles a sharia state. >> i would like to ask you about the affinity between the turk men and turkey. would the russians want to deal any harmful blows as a fighter force for russian reasons or because perhaps russian is looking to prop. assad and would be doing it for reasons of supporting him? >> most likely i would say russia is doing to prop up assad. in particular context of northern latakia, which has fallen out of assad's control since 2012. the presence of a number of armed opposition groups.
1:36 pm
including some kurds and arabs as well as foreign fighters is a long-term threat to the assad regime and the core community of the alawites that support it. in the context of turkey's role with the syrian turk man rebel groups, turkey has developed a strong intelligent and in some cases a special operations coordination with the number of the syrian turk men rebel groups. >> turkey also has a reason to mistrust a number of these groups as well. it's not entirely allied with every single turkman there is? >> no, and the turks pick and choose which groups they support. in general turkey has tried to play two roles with the syrian turk men organization. the first role is to coordinate. not all turk men organizations have the same outlook for the post-assad syria. so to try to get them to
1:37 pm
coordinate to be more effective and improve their ability to impact vents on the ground. the second is to choose which of these groups is the more effective on the ground. which of these organizations fight better and can provide turkey with leverage on the ground in northern syria. in some cases serve as a proxy for turkish interest. >> well appreciate your insights from washington, d.c. about events in syria specifically. the plight of the turk men people there. >> canada has released details of its plan to resettle 25,000 syrian refugees. some of them have been privately

1:39 pm
muslim community. delaying arrivals means more time for security checks as well as planning for transport and resettlement. once security checks are done, government-sponsored refugee also need temporary housing. that means barracks, disused public buildings and empty hospitals like this one. all about be safe homes for people from syria for several months at least. canada has a long tradition of accepting refugees and helping them start new lives. support agencies say they'll need more funding but they're ready for the influx. >> what is good for us in canada, we have a sophisticated service sector. we're feeling as if we're ready. >> at toronto's cafe, 12 syrians are working behind the counter and in the kitchen. the owner came from lebanon.
