tv Weekend News Al Jazeera December 12, 2015 8:00am-9:01am EST
final text has now been released over a half hour ago, and all the national delegations pouring over it to see what they make of it. in theory at a quarter to 4:00 local time all the parties pile into the chamber, and the process will begin of hearing people's objections and otherwise. at some point at the end of that, the gavel will go down and we'll have an agreement. it depends on you people view the text. we hear that the 3.1 section of the last foundational text, which refers to long-term builds is a sticking point with china. we know that the chinese premier and the president have been speaking on the phone. maybe progress is being made there. we see how it all goes down when we have the plenamreplenary sesa
little while. you have to think that sooner or later there's a deal. we spoke to the swedish deputy prime minister a little earlier. >> the meeting we just had was really encouraging. there was a lot of applause and support for the process. that's very important that all countries feel they have been heard and listened to. as a swedish negotiator i hope and have the hope that this agreement decided today will last in the way of strength of international cooperation on the climate. that's what the world and our future generations need. >> reporter: let's get a take on what's going on inside the proceedings. we lead to the latest council and used to be a negotiator. how doucet the stage right now? >> right now they have convened and distributed a new text.
all the parties are reviewing the tex very vigorously. there's a plenamreplenary conve afternoon. there's key issues on finance and differentiation in transparency and that remains right now. >> reporter: also this issue of 3.1 i talked about in a previous incarnation about fossil fuel emissions by the end of the century, which is vague in the first place. it seems strange china would have an issue with it. >> not really. china is on a major growth path and they want to make sure their growth isn't constrained. that's not surprising. it's a matter of finding the language. they rephrased the language a little bit, and it may be acceptable to all while carrying the same meaning towards decor banization or neutrality in the second part this. >> when they go in plenary
again, is there no going back? the gravel has to come down at some point? >> not necessarily. when they convene in plenary, there can be countries with dissenting voices that want certain issues addressed in a different way. it can get hairy and wild down in plenary sometimes if the dynamic becomes one country says this, another country has a different point of view and get out of control. ideally the french president where i managed those issues before and worked it out and brought them together, they are at the point of agreement. >> reporter: we le leave it her. duncan marsh speaking to us there. we'll hear more when the plenary happens. we'll keep you posted on that. >> nick clark live for us in paris. thank you so much. protesters are gathering near the site in paris to pressure world leaders to sign the deal. several environmental and human rights groups planned rallies
across the city and hundreds hold red umbrellas to make a red line with their bodies. they want an end to the use of fossil fuels like oil, gas and coal. who is responsible for what's happening to the plant net? the five worst emitters include developed and developing nations. these are the top five. china, the u.s., india, russia and japan. their emissions count for 60% of the total. the 27-nation bloc is responsible for 12%. china is the worst polluter and it show z as residents of beijing struggle with dangerous smog. it pumps out a quarter of the total global emissions. india is planning to build more coal-fired power stations despite it's the third worst polluter. many strie to get a stronger
commitment from india to reduce emissions. what has china been willing to do? how have they handled these talks so far? >> richelle, chien is unique, a heavy polluter and spending more money on combating pollution than any other country, as it should say environmentalists. balanced in a recurring word today and we heard it from the address from the french foreign minister a short time ago. china has stressed again and again that it wants to be treated as a developed nation, even though it's the world's second largest economy. there's a good reason for that, richelle. if china were classified as an industrialized nation, it would
have to make a huge contribution to that international fund that is being set up to help currents currently suffering the worst effects of climate change. so it's clinging to that developing nation status, and that's why we have friction in paris at the moment. one of the reasons why we don't have the agreement is world is currently waiting for. >> the timing of this summit could not have been worse. the government there in china had to issue the first ever red pollution alert. the op picks of that are just terrible, and the video we're i seeing is evidence of that. what kind of pressure is on china? >> reporter: well, i think china wants to try and rehabilitate itself in the eyes of the world. it doesn't want to be the bad boy in the environmental debate, but as you rightly point out, china took the unprecedented measure just a few days ago of issuing a red pollution alert.
it resulted in the number of cars on roads being halved, factories had to reduce to stop production. these were stop gap measures, richelle. they didn't reduce the pollution. what caused the pollutants to be dispersed a few daying ago was strong northerly winds. the pollution has returned again today. currently the air quality index where i stand is 356. anything over 100 is considered dangerous. if you go online, there is an awful lot the disgruntlement. ordinary chinese peement want to know the long-term strategy for dealing with pollution. and people i don't think have a great deal of hope that the climate change talks in paris are going to lead to their lives improving any time soon. the government has said that it is prepared to shut down coal-fired power stations in the next couple of years. not all of them but some.
also, it has said that other industries like steel could be affected. i caught came back from southwest china and i went to a steel town where the factory closed nine months ago because it was labeled as a heavy polluter. it resulted in the loss of 16,000 jobs, and the question is this. is this now going to be the template for what's going to happen in other parts of china as china resolves to try to cut pollution? >> adrian brown live in beijing. thank you so much. so how does carbon dioxide or co2 affect our climate? the earth has a natural blanket of greenhouse gases. they include water vapor, methane, and co2. without this blanket, the temperature of the earth would be minus 17 degrees celsius. life as we know it would be unsustainable. greenhouse gases keep the earth's temperature stable around 16 degrees celsius, but
since the industrial revolution, huge amounts of co2 have been pumped into the atmosphere because of the burning of fossil fuels and that has upset the natural balance making the blanket of greenhouse gases thicker. it's heating up the planet and melting the ice caps and affecting weather systems. let's go to margot ortigezus live for us. let's go to the philippines. what will this do hopefully if there's an agreement reached, how will it affect the lives of people in the philippines? what are they hoping, forgo? >> the biggest concern is how the country can adapt to the changes brought about by global warming. there's nothing they can do now about the weather systems. the environment officials warn all filippinos they should consider stronger storms more frequently coming across the country as the new normal.
however, what they do is need international funding not just to deal with the own greenhouse emissions but basically trying to move towards renewable energy but helping the communities most affected by global warming adapt to these changes. either find newer places to live away from coastlines or mountain ranges where there could be more landslides because of the stronger storms. it's also finding employment and livelihood for communities that many are fishing villages. this is weighing very heavily on the philippine delegation in paris. what they want to see there is a firm and strong commitment from the developed nations to help countries such as the philippines deal with the effects. one thing that was very much on the top of mind of the delegates is they wanted a more strong wording in terms of liability and compensation between developed and developing nations. this is something that looks like was not in an earlier draft
of the agreement. they were still rather concerned about the final wording in this last version of the draft. it will be rather interesting to see how things turn out at the plenary. >> margot is live in manila. thank you so much. still ahead on al jazeera. violence in ethiopia as an ethnic minority group says government development plans threaten its way of life. i'm jessica baldwin in oxford with scientists are preserving the cultural heritage of syria. in sport find out if oklahoma's star man can step up to give his team a fourth straight win. it is the second day of a conference to the middle east and rome. they're all discussing the rise
of isil in libya as well as security in the region. the armed group has been exploiting the power vacuum, expands its presence in libya. european leaders are anxious about the threat of isil so close to the continent. the head of the terrorism research program at the italian institute for international political studies and he joins us live from rome. we appreciate your time so much. how much of a threat is isil to the potential for there to finally be a deal in libya? >> a little bit skeptical about this agreement, but i think that in my view of the international communities making strong pressure on the libyan warring parties to reach these agreements. this is the main object of the rome conferences, and i can't -- i think that the international
community will try to coordinate efforts at the regional level because we have different players with different views of the situation in libya. there's regional players like qatar and emirates. so it's very complicated. i think that an agreement could be reached. in any case the province, the doc implementation because i think that at any moment under the pressure of some internal spoilers, the agreement could collapse. i think that this is the main problem. >> so you're saying that everyone has competing interests basically. who do you think would the actors be just to derail this deal? who could keep this from actually coming to fruition?
>> i think that one of the keys of this situation is there is a need for a collective security agreement on libya. but the time is running, i think, and the risk is that the new government will not have the security conditions to take office in tripoli. and i think that there are three main problems. one is that both governments lack the direct control over the militi militias that they were associated with. alliances on both sides are collecting and are blind on both sides. this is the third problem. both sides are potential
spoilers. on one side they're set on enters into convict with the future government, i think. on the other side i think that the problem is the core group of the form er coalition composed f islamist politicians and militias in tripoli, especially under the leadership. so it's very difficult to understand if the agreement could work. >> it's one thing to negotiate these deals in a room. it's a completely different thing to actually implement them on the ground. we have to see how this actually plays out. arturo is speaking to you from rome. thank you so much. we appreciate it. >> thank you. we are getting reports of a suicide car bomb attack in
syria. this happening in the city of homs. at least 40 civilians are reportedly killed or injured. as soon as we get more information on that attack, we will bring it to you. and iraqi army commander and six soldiers have been killed in a suicide bomb attack. the bomber detonated his suicide vest at a border post in saudi arabia. no one claimed responsibility. iraqi troops are fighting isil fighters who have captured large swaths of territory in anbar, including its provincial capital of ramadi. holes have been oeled in odd rab for a ground-breaking election. women are taking part for the first time both as candidates and voters. around 900 women and 6,000 men are running for election in local councils. these councils are the country's only elected public bodies. the legal voting age has also been lowered from 21 to 18. many young people welcome these changes.
>> it's my first time to enlist in our country. actually, i was -- i'm coming here to support one of my friends. we believe in her. we believe in her ideas. i wanted to start to put a point that i'm supporting someone. >> not everyone agrees with allowing women to run. >> translator: we know that women make up half of society, but her role is not in such places. her role is at home administering her house and bringing up i new generation. if we allow her out of the house, who will take care of my sons? >> what does campaigning and elections look like there? >> reporter: not your typical elections to be honest. we don't have many billboards or posters in the streets campaigning, although this is the first time they've been
allowed to vote. voting is limited because of other stricter laws implemented in this country which prohibit them from canvassing directing to the male come patriots. having thd that the poll open 8:00 a.m. local time. it's a smooth process but a weak turnout for numerous different reasons, depending on who you speak to. definitely the culture taking to the poll is one not only new to saudi arabia's women but to saudis in general. this is only the third time in the country's history that any format of election has been taken place. that culture within citizens isn't very much engrained. this is still a kingdom ruled by a monarchy. these local elections are significant because they're ground-breaking in nature, they are also limited in terms of the scope in which to change the
political realities in saudi arabia. >> is it really more of an x exercise as opposed to something with social implications, or is it too soon to know? >> obviously, it's too soon to know, because this will have a lot of effect. when you speak to those particular opponents of this -- the women's population is in support of them and believe it breaks through a glass ceiling. it might not change laws today or tomorrow, but the fact the society is now becoming more inclusive for this respect is something that hopefully can be built upon from their perspective to i'll lou rights to women to drive and particularly the joout. the age of voters from 21 to 18. getting young people in saudi has a high proportion of
population below the age of 25. having them involved is something significant. a lot of authorities think it's a step in the right direction and they want to move fwashd with. they tell critics to allow saudi arabia to do it on their own terms. it should be done in a gradual method to be sure it's done in a more stable way. >> rarting live from riyadh, jamal. thank you. metine is a saudi arabiian business woman that helps them win positions in public office. shegd the slekdz is about accountability. >> once the door is opened, it's very difficult to close it. when hillary clinton said she had so many cracks in the glass ceiling. right now this is exactly what's happening. we're having over 280 municipal councils that have opened the
doors to the participation of women whether as voters or candidates. this means from the urban to the rural to the city level and so at this stage you're having a big awakening happening and a big desire to contribute to the local decision-making process at the grassroots level. there's a big impact, and you have the whole community kingdom wide mobilized for this. it will have an impact. whether women get elected or not, there is an impact. this is a start. once women get their foot in that position, i think it's even more historic than the parliame parliament, because that the level it's more strategic and policy-making. at this level it's policy-making and budget controlling but access to execution and supervision and accountability. when you are holding your local representatives accountable and you have the right to do so, then i think that's very
powerful. houthi rebels said they will on observe a ceasefire in yem yemen's civil war from december 14th. that's been announced by the head of the delegation of houthi rebels. he'll be going to switzerland next week for talks to end the fighting. he made the announcement at a press conference in sanaa. >> translator: we managed to pave the way for the 10-point document as the 7-point document. the message sent to the united nations is now solid ground for political dialogue. a son of gaffty was handed over to security forces in lebanon after being kidnapped. lebanese tv show gaddafi in captivity. he was held by a group demanding information about the fate of the shia muslim cleric. he went missing in 1970 and they
blame gaddafi for his disappearance. we have reports at least 20 have been killed in burundi's capital. their bodies were found the morning after a series of coordinated attacks on military installations that killed 15 people. let's go to malcolm webb who has spoke to eyewitnesses in burundi. what's the latest you heard about what happened? >> reporter: residents say it's people wearing police unit in a unit called api which is loyal to the president. they came into some residential neighborhoods, which have been hotbeds of protests against the president ever since april when he announced he wanted to run. he got back in office in july in a disputed election. on friday morning they were
attacked in nearby areas on military bases by what we believe to be rebels trying to take military camps and steal arms. residents believe these killings were in response to that, in response to the attacks of rebels on the camps. a police spokesperson denies civilians are targeted or killed. he said the only killed were attackers of the military camps. >> all right. our malcolm webb reporting for us now gathering more information on these killings. stay close. we'll call on you again, malcolm. now to weather with richard. stormy weather coming to us out of the u.s. hi, richard. >> hi, richelle. your part of the world could be impacted. we see big storms developing. we look at the satellite imagery. it looks like a bit of a mess all right.
it doesn't make it much clearer. we put some weather fronts on it. does that help? probably not. the basic thing is we have warm air from the gulf, and we have colder air from the north. a classic. the warm weather caused its own problems. the poconos mountains have seen a dirth of snow this season. last season a good 25-centimeter level. now there's nothing there. they resort to summertime pursuits to keep people occupied. on the other side of the u.s., very different story. storm damage from california, major storms across washington state and oregon. so that's going to be an ongoing thing. a weather system pushes in towards the pfdz. we have snow across the colorado platter. it's not looking too bad. into sunday there we start to see the clark of air masses
coming in. up through the south that's when you see really severe storms, some tornadoes possible, snow and the whole system moves towards the eastern seaboard as we head through into the early part of next week, michigan. >> thank you very much. plenty more still ahead on al jazeera. the afghan taliban killed 7 people in an attack on the diplomat mattic neighborhood in the capital of kabul. chinese internet giant buys the south china morning post raising concerns over press freem freedom in hong kong. in sports one of the most successful teams in rugby suffers a big defeat. andy will have all the details for you.
the french foreign minister presented an ambitious global agreement at the u.n. climate talks in paris. delegates from 195 nations now need to give the approval. in saudi arabia women take part for the first time as candidates and voters in municipal elections. around 900 women and 6,000 men run for election to local council. at least 40 people have been found dead in burundi's capital. eyewitnesses say the victims appear to have been shot at close range. it was found a day after a series of coordinated attacks on military installations killed 15
people. >> interpreter: let's return to our top story, and the deal on climate change in paris. we're live from the indian capital of new delhi to tell you more about india's role and concerns in this developing climate deal. >> interpreter: >> reporter: absolutely. well, india over the last two weeks has in some cases been seen as a hindrance with a comprehensive global climate change agreement. one particular cartoon published by "the new york times" earlier this week created a stir with an illustration of the climate change train and india as an elephant in the middle of the tracks, suggesting that india is driving too hard a bargain whether it comes to this deal. the indian government says its position is simple. it needs to balance the economic and development goals and priorities of one of asia's largest economies with its promises to the global community
when it comes to climate change. they say, look at our situation. it makes a lot of sense. we have a quarter of the indian population that still does not have access to electricity. however, on the other hand, we have some very vast, very valuable coal reserves that need to be developed, and sdpoit the fact that these are key points that raise a lot of questions when it comes to emissions, indian says these are very necessary things that india needs to do to make sure that it continues to grow. it's also called on countries like the united states to show more of the responsibility when it comes to emissions. that perhaps will be a key talking point for delegates from india going forward in the next few hours. >> all right. reporting live from new delhi. thank you so much. japanese bullet trains are on the way to india. the prime minister is hosting his japanese counterpart in new
delhi. japan will invest in the first high-speed rail line between mumbai and western india. a preliminary agreement on the plan has also been signed. >> it's an honoree effort with $12 billion u.s. dollars and technological assistance on very easy terms for this project. this enterprise will launch at the revolution of indian railways and spurt you have india's journey into the future. in afghanistan seven people have been killed in a taliban siege. four afghan policemen and two spaniards died in an attack at at guest house for foreigners in kabul. jennifer glasse has more from kabul.
>> reporter: the blast started with a car bomb explosion heard around the city by the spanish embassy. >> translator: at first i thought it was a gas balloon explosion, and i saw the dust from the back of bakery. i don't know where the explosion was, but i saw two wounded. >> reporter: taliban fighters exchanged gunfire with afghan police and security forces. the taliban said the target was a guest house for foreigners. the fighters claimed to have them trapped inside the building. >> translator: a car was blown up. right after the blast happened, we turned off the lights in the air and our night operation special forces started to search the vis isn't and nearby houses. >> reporter: the area is heavily guarded. home to senior government officials, ngos and medical clinics. it was closest to the spanish embassy. >> translator: we can all be targets of terrorist attacks, all of us, any western country. but in this case it wasn't an attack against the spanish
embassy. >> reporter: this was the taliban's third high profile attack in four days. general jennifer glasse, al jazeera, kabul. they discussed improving ties and resuming cooperation projects in the border city. xpgszs for progress fell when both sides settled for vice minister level talks ruling out discussion on top level issues. the chinese internet giant ali baba is buying the south china post and one of the most respected publications in asia. rob mcbride has more from hong kong. >> reporter: understand surprisingly the sale was front page of the newspaper itself. with the 112-year history the post is considered by many the paper of record by the china
coverage. the ali baba group pledges to uphold the editorial independence. the fear for many is that under alibaba's founder, that will translate into a self-censorship of china stories. >> we're also very close to the party and state leaders of china, so it is most unlikely that he would want his newspaper to run critical articles about individual leaders or major policies. >> reporter: willie lamb is a former china editor of "the post" who said many colleagues at the paper are unhappy with what they see as an erosion of hong kong's freedom. >> they think of that. if they can control the mass
media in hong kong, then it will facilitate their effort to enhance mrit cat control of hong kong. >> reporter: "the post" joins other media entities acquired by mainland other thanes but it leads to a rise on online news services in cantonese and english. >> we look at what we intended to do and overwhelming response we got, record-breaking funding and traffic, i think the appetite is still there. >> reporter: changing technology, opening up new fronts in the developing battle for the control of hong kong's media. robert mcbride, al jazeera, hong kong. a main suspect in the rwandan genocide is being questioned in the democratic republic of congo. he's accused of publicly orchestrates of massacre of tens
thousands of tutsis over the years. rwanda is calling for his extradition and immediate trial. > government leaders in ethiopia are unsure who is behind a mosque bombing. staying in ethiopia, opposition politicians say police shot dead protesters in aents-government demonstrations. they say the government development there threatens their way of life. charles stratford reports. >> reporter: it's not known exactly how many people have been killed. activists say this video on youtube shows crews firing during a demonstration at the university more than 500 kilometers east of the capital. activists say there are protests
like this happening every almost day. it's a sharp contrast with the capital where developments such as these are springing up all over contributing to the country's booming economy, one of the fastest-growing in the world. a government plan to as it describes better intee fwrat development across the wider region is facing groying opposition from many of the people who live here. no one we asked would speak on camera. these farmers are offered cash to give up their land to developers. the vast majority of the people that live around this region are the eromo. they're the largest group. they long accuseded government of ignoring their political, economic and cultural rights. police have shot dead a number of people at anti-government protests in the region in recent days. we contacted people in villages
where we heard there have been protests and we recorded this conversation. >> reporter: this is an opposition leader that served more than 3 1/2 years of an 8-year prison sentence being involved in what the government describes as an terrorist organization. >> the question is development is not only physical development. it's not only building. it's not only constructing houses. it should some kind of huge development. the indigenous development. they must maintain their identity as well.
>> reporter: government leaders say they're listening. >> they will take measures to address the problems of people. even 1% is one too much. the government will do everything necessary to bring action against those responsible for this. >> reporter: as ethiopia builds towards the future, many people are feeling increasingly left out. charles stratford, al jazeera. the gambia is notice officially a muslim republic. it's to distance the nation from the colonial past. it was controlled by britain by more than 150 years until 1965. 95% of the gambia's population are muslim. technology is on the way to help combat the campaign by isil
fighters to destroy the cultural heritage of the middle east. british volunteers archaeologists are to photograph ancient temples and shrines to be rebuilt. from oxford, jessica baldwin reports. >> reporter: packing up 3d cameras and all the materials they need to photograph important sites of cultural heritage. we can't show the simple low cost cameras they use because it might endanger the photographers. it's a race against time to send the cameras to syria. trying to keep one step ahead of isil fighters and their destruction of ancient sites including the 2,000--year-old temple at palmyra they destroyed in august looting the sight for valuable antiquitieantiquities. >> we can come in in short order and put the structures back the way they were and people can get on with their lives. when they walk down the street,
they see the familiar vistas and go about the business as usual. that's the promise these images hold. >> reporter: each represents a photograph. >> they're rendered into architectural drawings. if the in the future the syrians decide to rebuild the towers, colonnades and ancient structures, a 3d printer takes over. this particular art structure is 15 meters high. so it's not small. it also has a fair bit of surface detail. we can go from the photographs to an actual physical structure in a period of about three months. it's a much shorter time than it would take to start from scratch with a solid block of stone and whittle away by hand. >> reporter: the antiquities and cultural heritage of the region can't be underestimated. many want a meeting between east and west.
p palmyra had the styles. >> it's what it should become. it's a unified region where cultures live together in a horm money yus fashion. isis destroyed it and represents defracturing and the problems in syria. >> reporter: being around beautiful architecture and a rich cultural heritage becomes part of a person. when that's gone, they lose a little bit of their identity. that's why this project is so important, they're preserves history in a integral part of the region for the next generation. jessica baldwin, al jazeera, oxford. coming up in sports. barcelona tried to end their recent run of draws. we have all the buildup to another busy day of european football.
marijuana smokers in motion co-hope they're one step closer to having the drug legalized. they have granted the first four permits allowing the cultivation and possession of the drug for personal use. one of the new permit holders says he successfully appealed to the supreme court because prohibitionist policies are wrong, not because he wants to smoke weed. mexico's president opposes legalization and so do mexicans surveyed in opinion polls. its 45 years since the beatles split up. in argentina memories of the fabric four are vivid as ever.
