>> announcer: this is al jazeera. hello, welcome to the newshour, i'm jane dutton in doha. coming up, russia accused of bombing a marketplace in the syrian province of idlib. at least 44 are killed. >> parisians lay out empty shoes for all those that would have marched to demand action on climate change a moment of hope. as burkina faso elects a new
8:01 am
president and smiles as the pope is greeted by smiles in central african republic and it's over for vitaly klitschko after an 11 year run, as fewer becomes the world heavyweight boxing champion. russia's been blamed for an air strike that killed 44 people at a busy marketplace in northern syria. it happened in the town of -- in idlib province. >> translation: the timing of the raid was the early hours of the morning, when the marketplace was busy. it was hit by two missiles in one raid, hit by 50 meters. a large number of people were killed and injured. it has been under the opposition
8:02 am
control since may. russian raids have intense fire on northern parts of syria, on many fronts, like areas that are heavily populated residential areas, housing all those displaced from hama and aleppo. people here, medical staff, are outraged by russian strikes, because they targeted civilian areas. they did not target areas belonging to other opposition groups. most of the targets were civilians? >> bombings and violence in syria means more refugees, the european union wants to pay to keep them in turkey. they put 3 billion on the table in brussels. nadim baba is there, but the plan is pushed by berlin, where
8:03 am
lawrence lee reports. >> reporter: spring turns to summer, autumn to winter, still they have not stopped. through all weather, on this miserable trip. the e.u. has been accused of doing too little to make the journeys less dangerous. they were full of sympathy when the body of a 3-year-old was washed up on the beach, the main pre-occupation was to stop the refugees. the german government in the driving streak presenting this plan as an attempt to regain control. >> it's not a fair humanitarian solution to induce people to offer their lives. we have to offer perspective to illegal entry, but improving the situation of refugees in turkey. >> reporter: there it berlin known as little istanbul. germany has, for years, taken in migrant workers. the deal may mean they take in a
8:04 am
lot more. 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 down in 1989. for all that time it's been blocked it because the human rights record was not good enough. given how many described the refugees as economic migrants, it sounds to some to be a hypocritical position for them to take. >> european union is willing to give up its human rights, its own values, why it exists. it is doing this on the back of
8:05 am
the most vulnerable people, the refugees. >> so more than $3 billion will be found and given to turkey, for more camps and probably more barbed wire. perhaps it will constitute a life for the refugees, and not. clearly the fences have not worked so they are pushing them further towards syria and iraq let's talk to nadim baba, join ugs from brussels -- joining us from brussels where the e.u. leaders are set to meek. >> the talks are yet to start. some of the prime ministers have arrived. the dutch and greek prime minister arrived in the last hour. there has been hundreds of thousands of people reaching the european union via turkey, on to the greek islands in, and then
8:06 am
various routes. let's not forget earlier this year there was a plan for e.u. member states to take in parts - a share of 160,000 refugees. that has gone nowhere. in the meantime we have seen distressing screens. meanwhile in turkey, there are 2.3 million syrian refugees, so the plan put forward at the malta summit involve giving turkey 3.2 billion. in return, turkey will do more. allow syrian refugees to work in turkey, and for the children to get on indication. time is critical. a lot rides on this. the european council president
8:07 am
has been saying why to him it is so urgent. >> turkey, regarding terrorism, we need better cooperation, and when it comes to cyprus. and recent days has shown how important is the cooperation in geopolitical conflicts. >> nadim, what are the chances of turkey getting what it wants here? >> well, that's a tough question to answer. i mean, there has been a lot of critical reaction from some quarters in europe towards speeding up talks from turkey. it's not making progress in improving the situation in its own country. in the last few days, a pair of
8:08 am
gaoled journalists wrote to the european union urging it not to forget its commitment to freedom of expression because of its drive to solve the refugee crisis. it's not clear when - what time period this time period will be given. turkey talked about 3.2 billion given over one year. some believe it would be over a 2-year period. where will it come from. some say instead of from national governments, it will come from an e.u. fund. many questions to be resolved in brussels people in burkina faso are voting to choose a new leader. the ballot comes offer a period when blaise compaore was ousted. 14 are in the running, two are front runners. roch marc christian kabore served as prime minister under
8:09 am
the former president. blaise compaore. he left government to form the m.p.p. party in protest. she up against zephirin diabre, leader of the liberal upc party, and a former finance minister. the former ruling party, the c.d. p is barred from fielding a presidential candidate. mohammed adow joins me from ouagadougo, the capital. how is it going there? >> well, things have been going smooth so far. the voters that we have seen in the day have seen, and many cast votes, but across the country voting is going on in more than 17,000 polling stations. these are historic elections in every way you look at it. not only are they the most free and fair elections the people of burkina faso voted in, but also
8:10 am
many people, this country's population, 70% have not known another leader. they are voting because of voter apathy. with people in burkina faso saying they do not want to vote in elections considered won. the campaign period went without hitches a last minute hunt for voters as campaigns drew to a close. three-quarters of the population under the age of 30 years. the youth vote will be decisive in the elections. blaise compaore is a front runner, the former prime minister.
8:11 am
roch marc christian kabore left government a year ago after refusing plans to extend the blaise compaore rule. zephirin diabre, a businessman, former finance minister is a candidate. the front runner's ties to the former regime is a disappointment. >> translation: it's a misconception to suggest that we don't represent grade. we served under blaise compaore. we have nothing to be ashamed of. >> reporter: burkina faso is a poor country. the ailing economy was affected by the crisis that followed the resignation of blaise compaore. for the people, more than anything, that the burkina faso people want is for the elections to solve the country. representatives of the former ruling party - none of them - are allowed to stand for presidency.
8:12 am
officials have been campaigning with elders for support. a majority in parliament gives them the right to choose the post of prime minister and speaker. >> translation: we are not happy, it's unfair, we would have one if permitted to run. the strategy is to take over parliament. >> they have mixed signs. >> we experienced democracy. na we have this uncertainty, about the results of the election, and it's a sign of moving to more democracy. if the elections are successful. it will be the first power in the history of the burkina faso, whose name means the land of honest people. this is a moment of hope and excitement for many people here.
8:13 am
for the first time in this country's history, it is a true like possibility of the country returning to democracy. what is making people here feel hopeful is for the first time they might have a government that will deal with a massive problem, being top on the list, dealing with poverty and unemployment, standing at more than 607%. thank you for that, mohammed adow and ouagadougo the leader of the central african republic arrived the pope for forgiveness. after two years of violence she described as a descent into hell. close to a million people have been forced from their homes by conflict between christians and muslims. pope francis met some of those that have been displaced. he spoke about a need for tolerance. joining us from rome is a political columnist for the daily newspaper. he is the author of several
8:14 am
books, including the vatican. good to have you with us. thank you for joining us. what do you make of his choice, the impact he can make there? >> well, i think that, first of all, it's symbolically important. it's a shift of the catholic church from europe to italy to the austral hemisphere of the world. it means that this pope wants to open the holy door not in rome, but symbolically in africa. this is the first point. the second is a hope and a challenge to try to ease tensions between christians and muslims. it's a tougher challenge for him. >> why do you think the move is to refocus the church, look away from europe, to avco and south america? >> well, just because the
8:15 am
conclave of 2013 determined the end of the eco sent rift. the paradigm changes, there's not a western supremacy. there's a southern supremacy. this comes from america. argentina. it is extreme west, and is overall south. this is looking at the church and moving the heart of the church to the south of the world. >> here in central african republic, a country riddled with violence, it's not the cushy thing you see the popes on. >> i think the pope is conscious that the challenge is between
8:16 am
some countries and continents. he's trying to force on dialogues. while everything is going in towards the opposite direction. >> it's an attempt to demonstrate that crist entrance and muslims live together. we look at it with european eyes. we thing of terrorism and the attacks. as a challenge of the field of security. interesting thought there. do you think the pope is having on the church. he has a different style. is that working, boosting numbers? >> it depends. it's working on people. crowds in the world.
8:17 am
the level of governs, the vatican, the level of the relation of this pope with the army, if we can define to this way. it's tough. i'm not sure that he's win are or convincing his army. >> stay with us on the al jazeera newshour. still to come - building walls between people. we report on the impact of israel's separation barrier on the occupied west bank. the government tells teachers to sit quietly. we report on the controversy of a new history textbook, and tennis stars on the verge of making history at the tennis cup final. details with jo, in sport people around the world have been marching to demand action on the environment before the
8:18 am
u.n. climate change conference in paris. hundreds took part in the protest in the indonesian capital jakarta. they want the country to reduce its dependency on fossil fuel and use renewable energies. there's similar scenes in south korea. greenhouse gases are expected to be 81% more than 1990. the pope is demanding urgent action. >> more than 40,000 gathered in sydney. marches took place in sydney and other cities. the cop 21 summit takes part. leaders from 21 countries will discuss a plan to cut greenhouse gases. paul brennan reports. >> reporter: all around the world on the eve of the cop21 reports, people are taking to the streets from adelaide and sydney - 45,000 turned out to
8:19 am
protest in favour of a deal on climate change. all the way in new york. here in london the demonstration is taking place. tens of thousands of people. the march will take place to parliament. what we are seeing here is a large variety of groups from the lobby campaigners. to energy. people were concerned about the use of energy, and they were united under the banner of a deal. the biggest message, i suppose, is there is no planet b. the pressure ire is on the politicians to do a deal where previous attempts failed in a city where the summit happened, there was a different protest. they used thousands of pairs of empty shoes.
8:20 am
police cancelled planned rallies due to security concerns following attacks leaving 130 dead. it's a dramatic statement, seeing the shoes over the discrete. what is the plan. what impact did it have? >> as you say. staring in powerful events and scenes. the shoes are symbol itsing the march due to march. what you have now is all sorts of people. including the pope. the u.n. secretary-general supplied a pair of shoes. it's a powerful statement. all the more powerful with no one marching it.
8:21 am
the actions picked up. i was going to say that civil action picked up. if you think back to the new york match. 750,000 took place in that margin, picking up more and more. it's marching around the world. >> any chance getting what they want. >> we are here in a sprawling conference center, along way north of paris. this is where the deal will be achieved. the u.n. climate chief, they take hold of the territory. for the duration of the conference. there's a lot of optimism and hope. >> people said it in copenhagen
8:22 am
in 2009. look at what happened then. the spectre of copenhagen hangs over everyone, that's why all the world leaders are pitching up tomorrow, instead of the end of the conference to give the affair momentum to try to get the process easy going. we have 180 out of 185 countries putting forward what emissions they are prepared to cut. it's not enough that it's something in the right direction. all these things have to resolve over the coming weeks. >> thank you for that. as you were saying, the fact that people are taking to the streets in enormous numbers - we are looking at live pictures coming to us from madrid. >> now, security for the paris summit is tight after the recent attacks. as jacky rowland reports, french police are leaving nothing to
8:23 am
chance. >> reporter: the army and police have paris covered. they were ordered on to the streets after the attacks of november 13th. now they have an added responsibility, ensuring the cop21 climate change summit passes without emergency. >> with the heightened success, the success of cop 21 is linked to securing it to the maximum level. everything has been put into place to secure the conference itself, and surroundings to the maximum level. >> reporter: the scale of the operation is unprecedented. 8,000 police guarding france's air, sea and land borders. 2800 police will be on duty at the summit venue itself. in total, 120,000 police and troops will be deployed across the whole of france. security becomes tighter the
8:24 am
closer you get to the conference center. 20,000 delegates are expected to cross the security perimeter, and thousands more journalists. the french were determined despite the attacks the summit should go ahead as planned. the fact that nearly 150 heads of state and government are expected in paris is a vote of confidence for french security. a security operation will inevitably mean traffic chaos. the french warned to use public transport and leave cars at home. >> my message is simple. do not drive on the 29th or 30th. it's absolutely essential. >> the scale of the paris attacks and international reaction they provoked almost eclipsed the climate summit. the french government hopes the mood of international solidarity will strengthen the resolves of all parties to reach a climate deal.
8:25 am
i'm not sure if this has to do with climate change or not, but there's crazy whether in the states. they have everything and the kitchen sink. >> let's look at why we have crazy weather in the u.s. at time of year it's normal to see arguing types of air, the gold air digging from canada, and mild air working up from the golf of mexico. where they reach often there's active weather at this time of year. at the moment we have this feature here, the remains of a hurricane, dumping moisture into the system, and is why we have seen heavy rain. for many we see torrentially heavy downpours and snow. we have seen freezing rain, and it is one of the most dangerous types of weather that we have. it is rain falling from the sky, but as soon as it hits, it turns to ice.
8:26 am
it looks beautiful, but is dangerous. it makes the surfaces slippery, driving is difficult and heavy. bringing down trees and powerlines. there's a few problems across the u.s. at the moment. things are improving. that's because temperatures are beginning to recover. and as the system swoops eastwards things will calm down. officer system is developing monday and tuesday. that will bring 15 centimetres of snow in some places. >> extraordinary. the israeli army shot dead a palestinian man who stabbed an israeli policeman, happening another the damascus gate near east jerusalem. 103 palestinians and 21 killed since the wave of violence. the israel separation wall is getting bigger. it's constructing a new section. it's owned by palestinian families on sunday.
8:27 am
it is meant to be a solidarity. construction on the wall is under way. >> work started in the valley under armed protection. the foundation laid for more separation. palestinians submitted an appeal to the high court, trying to stop it coming through bethlehem. this is the only remaining sways. it is green, it is agricultural. it is owned and the serious problem that this land is owned and has 58 christian families, plus the salesian brothers. where they produce wine. it's feared it will cut across
8:28 am
of what is seen of a last area. palestinians are convinced the move is about a land grab. israel says the separation wall is needed. there's a monastery. it should not be separated. it was the case under the routine plan. it's not clear what path the wall will take. prayers have been taking place in protests every week. it seems they may go unanswered. it's a wider matter. bethlehem is the wall of jerusalem. in bethlehem, the moment of the nativity and the church of the nativity is in bethlehem, and the church of the holy sepp you
8:29 am
will tour is there the delegation has been to the vatican to discuss the issue with the pope. the facts on the ground is changing. it is described to us by people as the last nail in the cross of bethlehem plenty more to come on al jazeera. still ahead... >> i'm jennifer glasse and kaboom, where the government is hoping a tax on mobile phone calls will help lead towards independence and why canada and mexico fight to save an iconic butterfly as it makes its annual migration. >> and how much this man lifted to break the world record in weightlifting. ightlifting.
8:30 am
8:31 am
here are the headlines. an air strike in idlib province killed 44 people. a russian strike hit a busy marketplace. areas controlled by al nusra front, rebels took the area in may people in burkina faso are voting in the first location since the uprising, forcing president blaise compaore from power after 27 years. people around the world are marching to demand action on climate change ahead of a u.n. backed summit. rallies were cancelled.
8:32 am
people use shoes. we look at marches around the world. this live picture coming from london, where thousands demanded an end to destroying the planet let's go to rome. these are pictures coming from there. same kind of scenario. people angry about what is done or not down to stop the damage, ahead of the conference in paris. let's get more on the top story, an air strike killing 44 people at a market in northern syria, blamed on russia. the syrian observatory for human rights already accused russia of killing more than 400 civilians. russia said it hit 2,000 targets since beginning its bombing campaign. the u.s. coalition conducted 3,000 strikes. the syrian government did the
8:33 am
most damage, 42,000 air strikes in a year. marw marwan britishar joins me in the studio. . >> there's a number of things, russia is focused on bombing the western side of syria to support the bashar al-assad regime, where it's the most sensitive. it's not necessarily where i.s.i.l. is. i.s.i.l. is to the north and east. russia is focussing bombardment on moderate opposition in order to support the bashar al-assad regime. although the rhetoric is about how to go after i.s.i.l., but russia and the detractors in the
8:34 am
middle east are fighting over the survival or not of the bashar al-assad regime. >> when will this stop. this is the worst scenario, what we see happening, innocent people day. >> one can only remember back to '79 when soviet union - moscow sent military and it was stuck in a 10 years war. >> vladimir putin is digging in his own afghanistan in syria or not remains to be seen. with the likes of the air strike leading to the death of civilians, we'll see it more and more. president obama is betting on that. russia, if it continues in that
8:35 am
way it will recreate its own afghanistan and syria. and basically find out it cannot assure the regime in order to have him as a peace party. >> is this a precursor. the soviet union sent in troops. is that something they are likely to see. if it does happen, where does it leave the u.s. it's a bit of a mission creep. starting with air strikes, and starting with a base or two, and pulling in missiles, or whatever they are called. they are expanding the mission, the mission creep. you escalate the presence. whatever you do is not working out. a main sign of things working out is the fact that while the russians are bombing, the bashar al-assad regime. despite the help it's getting from the iranians and the
8:36 am
russians, to retake villages and towns on the eastern side of syria. north of latakia, the place of the bashar al-assad regime is controlled by opposition forces that until today the bashar al-assad regime is not trying to retake. despite hundreds of thousands dying, 200,000 die under bashar al-assad and tehran, and maybe 3,000 under bashar al-assad, tehran and vladimir putin - no one learns the lesson. we have russia bombing the moderate opposition. >> that's just syria. >> look at next door, iran, controlled by i.s.i.l., it is bombarded day and night. it's part of a sunni triangle. getting more unstable.
8:37 am
the region is now looking good. more of that kind of thing. it's the kind of bitter escalation that is not finding logic, is not getting results. people need to start having a sober idea of what the future needs to look like it's a frightening picture. >> turkey recovered the body of a russian pilot. the turkish military shot down the pilot fighter jet in disputed circumstances. ankara refused to comment. heavy fighting forced that doctors will face an acute shortage of supplies. in the battle of the city and impact on civilians. a warning that some of the
8:38 am
images are disturbing. >> reporter: the fiercest of battle for tiaz. witnesses tell al jazeera they have not experienced heavy fighting before. the houthis and the elite republican guard surrounded the did i since march. pro-government fighters supported by the coalition are trying to break the hold. over the weekend the coalition intensified aerial raids. destroying a number of targets and killed houthi rebels trying to infiltrate rebel areas. lives lost, not just those engaged in fighting. this child tries to recount what happened to him hours earlier. he and friends were gathered around a water truck when hit by a shell. some of his friends died. hospitals and medical facilities are overwhelmed. more than 30 forced to shut
8:39 am
down. six remain in operation. >> translation: tiaz hospitals are facing acute shortages, as we speak, a massacre has been carried out by militias. >> the humanitarian situation in tiaz is getting worse by the day. many homes are without power. food and water is scarce. supplies can't get in . tiaz is regarded as the cultural capital. as fighting escalates, there's a fear their children are growing up exposed only as a culture of weapons the u.s. government will lose authority. following congress's decision to stop the agencies. mass civilians programme after
8:40 am
revelations. scaled back data collection will continue. >> reporter: he was called a traitor. leading u.s. political figures called for his murder. he was forced into exile in russia. edward snowden's actions for disclosing actions of its own people brought about the end of bulk collections of american phone records. the dragnet failed to disrupt a terror plot. and the court declared it unconstitutional. the n.s.a. is not ending mass data collection when so many calls are made over the internet. >> international calls will be collected. the n.s.a. still bulk collects internet communications and because so much of americans internet communications happen to go overseas those continue to get polled
8:41 am
dragnet surveillance of metadata for that and the rest of the world will continue. those in the u.s. have some protection. as far as washington is concerned. everyone else is fair game. as shown, often they cooperate with the u.s. in surveillance of their citizens. edward snowden revealed more than telephone metadata collection. for example, the ability to search everything a user does on the internet. or a collection of 2 million text messages. >> what is going to shut down, according to former white house counterterrorism star richard clark is a fraction of what the n.s.a. does. otherwise people are probably 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 or exploited privacy safeguards or planning attacks. given the secrecy of the u.s.a.,
8:42 am
-- n.s.a., it may take another whistleblower for us to see what has change said -- changed a gunman that killed three people at a u.s. family planning clinic said the words no more baby parts as he was arrested. robert deer opened fire. the phrase is one of a wide range of statements deer made to police. no official statement about a motive has been released. anti-abortion campaigners published videos claiming planned planned parenthood clinics sell foetal organs and body parts for profits. >> japan will resume whale hunting in march after a year-long pause. 350 minke whales would be hunted for scientific research. the international court ruled that japan has contravening an international moratorium on
8:43 am
whale hunting. >> teachers warn they'll face court action unless they stop protests over a history textbook. the book is said to contain ties torted facts. >> reporter: teachers taking to the streets on issues dominating south korean politics. the government's plan to bring in a single authored text book. choosing to protest. these men and women are laying themselves open to prosecution. their employment is for political neutrality. this is one of 84 teachers union summonsed for questioning. >> translation: it's not possible to oppose the textbook without criticizing the government. they are proceeding with a plan for its benefit. to hold on to power. >> reporter: the south korean's opposition party has taken to displaying current history books. the government said it is left
8:44 am
leaning. too soft on ideology, too harsh on south korea's leaders overseeing the economic rise. what are they saying? the education book talks of squirmishes in both sides, but states in the north korean army started a surprise invasion across the 38th parallel. the u.n. called it an act of aggression. >> the birth of ideology, bringing instability, but weakening north korea's response to the outside world. what is common to the books is the way yes describe the seizure of power by the general as a coup. one leading to political repress and improvement to livelihoods. he happens to be the father of the current president. the president characterised the reform of teaching as a fight for the soul of the nation. >> it would be difficult for
8:45 am
students who learnt from the current textbooks to have a pride. why haven't we done better. ending up with self-tormenting views. the president's critics say these following the lead of her father, surviving political opposition. she's calling for a ban, saying they could allow infiltration by state militants. >> today in south korea, the government resolved issues. it's different from the past. but the lack of dialogue is worrying. the government says it wants to instill a shared sense of pride in the past. in doing so, it exposed deep divisions of its presence.
8:46 am
like thousands of afghans, this man sells mobile phone top-up cards. a new tax is affecting his business. >> when someone was charged $500, it was without tax. now 50 is tax. they are taking a cut from every card. because of that we sell less. >> consumers don't mind the tax, but would like to know where the money is going. >> we'd hope that the economy will provide the people, the system should be shown to people that it is going to the area in a proper way. and there are no chances of corruption. >> reporter: the tax was passed by presidential decree. the parliament says that's unconstitutional. voting against it. asking the government to vote against it. >> the main reason we rejected
8:47 am
the tax, the gas has no idea -- government has no idea they've been paying for the tax. were yes giving the 10% for the government. the tax is collected. cellphones are a fixture of life. despite the cost, people have continued to use them. >> the government says it is addressing concerns about where the tax is going. it is a first step. 70% of the budget is paid for with international aid. >> reporter: afghanistan's new president and chief executive told donors at a conference last year that they would work to make sure the government raised revenue. >> this top-up is a commitment that they have given to the international allies. that we will stand up on our own feet. we should utilize our own resources in order to deal with the budgeted expenditures.
8:48 am
many sellers are not optimistic that is would work. officials hope the tax is a first step to independence i just want to take you to paris quickly, we are looking at live pictures coming from a stand off between climate change protesters and the police. we see the police firing tear gas. there's a lot on the streets. and a water canon. as you know the big groups of people have been banned because of security worries. it hasn't stopped demonstrators taken to the streets still ahead.
