5:03 am
strikes, if the russian air strikes hit this place - they are supposed to be targetting i.s.i.l. >> the syrian observatory for human rights has been saying in statements posted on the websites that dozens of civilians, women and children were killed in air strikes by russian war planes. the russians have been saying that they are mainly targetting i.s.i.l. the turkish government, americans, have been saying that there are incidents of russians targetting moderate groups. some are backed by the americas, and the russians are using the i.s.i.l. as a cover to bolster the chances of i.s.i.s. to regain what it lost in the past. activists we have been in touch with in idlib insists that this

5:06 am
offer their lives. we have to offer perspective to illegal entry, but improving refugees in turkey. germany has, for years, taken in migrant workers. as well as a sped-up entry process to the e.u., turkey is demanding visa-free access to europe for 75 million people. suddenly for turkey, the refugee crisis is an opportunity. >> turkey has been trying to join the european union since before the berlin wall came for all that time it's been blocked. all the talk of represses and abuses is vanishing on the wind. the european union wants to pay turkey to keep the refugees out. given how many described the
5:07 am
refugees as economic migrants, it sounds to some to be a hip accuratal -- hypocritical position for them to take. >> european union is willing to give up its values, why it exists. it is doing this on the back of the most vulnerable people, the refugees. >> so more than $3 billion will be found and given to turkey, and probably more barbed wire. perhaps it about constitute a life for the refugees, and not. clearly the fences have not worked now to burkina faso, where people in one of the poorest countries in the world are voting to choose a new leader. the long-awaited ballot co

5:13 am
country. many did not thing we could have an election after the uprising. people have many suspicion from the next president. the reason why the election is important. >> reporter: many expectations from the ex president. the front runner are people that have ties with the former regime, does it disappoint you in any way? people of burkina faso need a democratically elected. they know that there'll be a way of different prosecution the more we are able to to the do an unrising, the more the next president will pay attention to priority. they will have justice. >> justice and jobs for the youth.

were killed during a 5-hour standoff. the motive behind the incident is not known the u.s. government will lose its legal authority to collect phone records of its civilians. it follows the stopping of collecting data after allegations by edward snowden. a scaled back collection will still continue. >> reporter: he was called a traitor. leading u.s. political figures called for his murder. he was forced into exile. edward snowden's actions for disclosing actions of its own people brought about the end of bulk collections of phone records. the dragnet nailed to disrupt a terror plot. and the court declared it unconstitutional. the n.s.a. is not ending mass

5:20 am
expanding mass surveillance around the world. and since the recent attacks in paris, some u.s. politicians are talking of expanding surveillance. >> edward snowden has been used as a scapegoat. even though there's no evidence that the attackers used the internet to exploit safeguards or planning attacks. given the secrecy of the u.s.a., it may take another whistleblower for us to see what has change said now to talk to the co-director of the brennan center's programme. she is welcoming the roll back. >> i think it's a good first step, as we advocates like to say. the telephone mete data programme was a first edward snowden revelation and shocked the country. it related to the domestic collection with information about america.
5:21 am
at the heart of the privacy collection. the modification to this programme are very, very significant, and it is the first roll-back of surveillance authorities that we'll see. everything else is an expansion. it's important not to overstate the importance of this, because the section 215 programme is only one way in which the government collects mete data. there's a series of overlapping authorities that are used to collect information. most of which we know nothing about. >> the last-known ebola patient left hospital putting the country on track to be freed of the virus. >> it's been hailed a symbol of crisis. guinea will be declared ebola free if there's no new cases.

5:25 am
let me tell you why it's happening. let's loaning at the satellite picture showing the area of cloud. there's three things making the storm bad. firstly, we have cold air digging down from canada. secondly we have warm air. these things are normal at this time of year. also the remains of a tropical storm to the south-west. that is injecting moisture into the system. and why we are seeing so much rain and active weather out of it. snaking across many parts of the u.s., and eastern parts of canada. that has given heavily rain. dallas reported record amounts of rainfall. the pictures to the east. there's a lot of flooding there. there's a lot of ice as well. the ice went beautiful. look at that. coating everything. but it is very, very dangerous. on the grounds it makes it slippery on the roads. it's heavy. if it managed to congregate on
5:26 am
the trees or the powerlines, it brings them down. that is why ice storms are devastating. the system is now edging eastwards, as it does so it will bring us violent weather towards the south. but there could be freezing rain out of this thank you indeed. we are approaching the midway point. still to come - the war between lima's rich and poor. the war of shame. al jazeera meets people on both sides of the divide, plus... >> i'm jennifer glasse. the governor is hoping a tax on mobile phone calls is the first step authorities firstal independence and the golden state warriors unbeatener streak stretches further. details in 20 minutes with jo. jo.
