[ gunfire ] the country is still at risk. france holds an emergency security meeting following three days of attacks that left seven people dead. a member of al qaeda in yemen says his group directed the attack in paris. trying to unite the nation -
sri lanka's new president begins to assemble his cabinet after his surprise victory closing the door on cholera examination in haiti. a judge rules the united nations can't be sued 4. 3... 1. 0. and lift off. and the next generation of reusable rockets heads for the international space station the french president francis hollande and key members of his government are meeting to discuss security and what has been described as intelligence failings in the right of the attacks which shocked the nation and, indeed the world. two sieges were brought to a violent end with four hostages
and three gunmen killed on friday. two days earlier 12 people were shot dead in an attack on a satirical magazine. we get the latest from paris with laurence lee in a moment. first this report from tim friend. >> reporter: these are the images that will stay locked in the french public's mind for decades to come. one of the most violent days in recent history. first, the end of the seem north-east of the capital. two hostage takers dead. then a few minutes later mayhem at a jewish supermarket in the city itself as police storm the building to release hostages. four of them were killed. probably before the police action. now, as the security operation continued, the questions begin. just before his death in a hail of bullets one of the magazine attackers boasted in a phone call with french television that he had received backing from al-qaeda in yemen.
>> translation: we are the defenders of the profit. i, cherif kouachi was sent by al qaeda in yemen. i went to yemen, and they financed me. >> reporter: it was a few days ago that the police denied that the attacks from a coordinated effort. it's clear now that planning took place, and the permit admitted there has been a failure of intelligence. police are still hunting hayat boumeddiene, the partner of amedy coulibaly, the supermarket attacker. she has vital information. the paris prosecutor revealed the extent of communications between the group. >> translation: the wife of cherif kouachi met last year they were in constant communication. >> in an audio message the group al qaeda in yemen praised the
acts in france. tim friend al jazeera, paris. okay. let's go live to laurence lee, our correspondent in paris. and so we have been hearing of this meeting this security meeting being held by francis hollande and his key government ministers. we have heard or seen at least, the interior firm making comments. what did he say? >> well i think, yes. it's been an attempt, really to reassure the public several people today, who are known to us that paris - yes children were kept in school and all this sort of thing in the capital. for all that the interior minister said in the last few minutes that they are going to maintain the level of vigilance that they have had for
the last few days and if anything they are increasing the strengths, not least because for all the demonstrations happening all obvious france today, there's a huge one planned here in paris for tomorrow morning, where there'll be several who come to show their solidarity with france over what happened here since wednesday, and the interior minister has been at pains to point out the event tomorrow will have an enormous level of security around it. bear in mind of course for all of that to happen with the end of the hostage situation, the common law wife of the man who took the supermarket hostage, she is at large, and they are desperate to spable to her. -- desperate to speak to her. they don't know if she's armed. if it looked like it was over there's a suggestion that france may be under a threat.
that's why the interior minister has been saying they are not letting their guard down not at all for the time being. >> the first job of the government is to tighten security to make people safe crucially i would have thought. and the second is to rally morale. you talk about a huge rally, a demonstration in support of principles if you like liberties. these are happening around the country spontaneously. >> well no they've been organised from north to south. there are 16 today and 20 tomorrow. every major town and city you name in paris seems to hold one throughout the weekend, and the words "jes suis charlie" and "paris charlie" werion on to the champs elysees yesterday. french society is saying they support freedom of speech and that sort of thing, and against
that you have what al qaeda and yemen says which is if france insists on criticizing islam in the way that it has done and they chose "charlie hebdo" to attack then france has more attacks to expect. you have conflicting narratives to do with freedom of expression and open society, and on the other hand the demand from section of islam, that islam will not be criticized and if you criticise it you can expect violence in return. that political discussion is going to have to play out and will be played out in the days to come. and tomorrow when we see, it will have to be something that we'll have to answer. and these people are fanatics and terrorists. many north african muslims feel excluded from french society, and they are the people that groups like al qaeda and yemen are intent on picking up. laurence lee live in paris.
we'll cover that huge rally, what is expected to be a huge rally at al jazeera. well as laurence lee was saying a member of the al qaeda in yemen claimed responsibility for being behind some of the events in paris offer the last few days. we go the yemeni capital and to our correspondent omar al saleh. first of all, how credible is the claim of responsibility coming from aqa al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. ? >> well i was speaking to someone who has close ties to al qaeda and the arabian peninsula and when i put a question to him regarding one of the group's members, he said when al qaeda in the arabian peninsula praises
an attack it means they carried out the attack. i listened to the message. it didn't say al qaeda did it. they praised it and warned of more attacks against the french people if some criticize or insult islam. now, we do know that late friday al qaeda in the arabian peninsula said that they have indeed directed the co-ashy brothers. we know one of the perpetrators cherif kouachi, he came to yemen and was financed. >> this was a spectacular attack if we accept that it was directed by al qaeda in the arabian peninsula. what does it tell us about the state of al qaeda in yemen, given that it objected to drone
attacks in the united states? >> i think the drone attacks killed prominent members of the group. however, it didn't end there. danger north - it ended the groups intent to carry out huge and global ta tacks. -- global attacks. al qaeda, if we believe they are the ones behind the paris shooting it is the biggest attack they managed to achieve on a global scale. if i read to you a number of things this they were behind i think you'll have - our viewers will have an idea they were behind the shooting at fort hood texas. an army officer, an arab muslim origin he had direct attacks. he killed a number of colleagues. another prominent attack - that
was an attempted bombing of an american airline going to the united states the person the perpetrator failed to detonate his explosives. he was in yemen, drying to study arabic language and had his connections with al qaeda and arabian peninsula. the group is lethal and if you believe u.s. security intelligence intelligence sources, they describe the group as active. >> omar al saleh live in the yemeni capital sanaa. thank you there's a lot more to come in the newshour including forced to study at home. how a wave of kidnap lippings effects -- kidnappings effects one of mexico's city. homes destroyed as zimbabwe is hit by the worst floods in
years. and in sport we'll have action from the asian cup. we'll see if south korea kept out oman. now in iraq at least 23 kurdish peshmerga forces have been killed during fighting with i.s.i.l. they were targeted in two car bomb attacks, south-east of the city. that's an area close to the sin jar mountains. peshmerga say around 12 fighters were injured. let's go live to the capital of iraqi kurdistan. erbil. mohammed adow - 23 peshmerga killed in this incident. how are the peshmerga managing to bear themselves up given the
number of casualties it is a small fighting force, after all. indeed it is. and it's spread across a huge area of about 1,000km long where they are facing with i.s.i.l. fighters. the two incidents that happened in the area around sinjar mountains happened in two different areas that were using humvees packed with explosives detonated on the positions of the peshmerga forces. now, this is fast becoming a tactic used by i.s.i.l. having no use for their vehicles with aircraft that belong to the u.s. collision carrying out attacks. they are using these vehicles and personal carriers, and they are packed with explosives in
the middle of the night. >> all the time we are talking about an area close to where you are in erbil, the northern reaches of iraq. a stronghold for i.s.i.l. mosul, which is not far from you at all. >> indeed yes much. mosul is 90km where were i am. the i.s.i.l. fighters continue to defend the second-most important command base. mosul the second capital of roque. they have been cutting -- capital of iraq. they have been cutting out attacks on towns, this morning they stopped an attack on a town 35km west of erbil. a commander told us that they came from the tigris river,
attacked the town took the sections and used heavy weapons, including antitank weapons. >> mohammed adow reporting live from erbil in northern iraq. to sang where the new president maithripala sirisena following a shock victory over mahinda rajapaksa. we have this report from colombo. [ ♪♪ ] >> reporter: thousands of supporters created sri lanka's new leader maithripala sirisena at his inauguration at the capital in colombo. few predicted the former health minister and ally of the defeated leader mahinda rajapaksa would break ranks, stand against him and beat him
in the polls. >> translation: i want to thank all my supporters all the parties and groups that supported me and i want to thank the election commission and police for making sure this was a fair election. >> he told supporters this was the beginning of his first and last six year term as president. his coalition consists of an astonishing 49 parties and groups and promised to abolish a system that allows mahinda rajapaksa and his family to avoid the rule of law. he said those days are over. >> thousands of people came to independent square to witness an historic moment in the development of this country, and watch a new president sworn in promising a new political culture. >> the change of app era after so many years.
finally we as sri lankans can come together and i do not have to be a relation of the last regime. >> translation: after many years i feel happy, i feel very happy about a new president being elected. >> maithripala sirisena pulled off what many thought was impossible. it's hoped that it is the start of what is described as a new political era for sri lanka. okay we can talk to a coordinator with the british tamils, and he joins us live from london. thank you for talking to us. is this a victory that you are celebrating? >> no doubt people from the nearby sri lanka, because they vote the person won the
election. but the town people they not trust the root cause of the conflict. the tamils are facing ongoing genae side. there -- genocide. there needs to be immediate trust to the tam ill's people -- tamil people's problem, releasing the list of people arrested at the end of the war, and immediately it should be stopped. in this election none.... >> sorry, can i just get you to be a little more specific about this. you are suggesting despite the end of the war, the tamil people are being discriminated. you talk about this what else do you say against the tam ill
population. >> this conflict goes for 60 years. the war ends in 2009 but doesn't deliver peace to the tamil areas. the candidates including mine and the current president elected, not addressed, not promised to deliver anything to the tamil people. >> you are talking about economic reconstruction. there is peace, talk about building up the areas deprived and neglected and devastated. is that what you are talking about. we want justice for the people killed in the last war, and a large number of people have been killed in a 5-month period. and the government arrested
18,000 people and they have not released any of the people arrested the main people arrested. sri lanka cooperates with the international process which our government the u.k. government and many government supported, and the u.n. - and the report is due in march. what we ask the international community, and the new government is to sit with the international community and without addressing the root cause and reform to the constitution will not solve the problem at the moment. >> mr maithripala sirisena said he was not going to entertain outside intersection with
regards to the final months of the civil war. he made a promise of constitutional reform and removing powers from the president. does that help the tamil community? >> the tamil government in the past there are several selections. they promise, they don't deliver the things. this is the reason the war went on for 60 years. it's almost six years, and the tamils are in their own homelands. lands are continuing to be grabbed, and the military in the north is very high and there's no feat in the nearby region. tamil are treated as second-class citizens. i think this is more important the current government and is a
duty and a responsibility to the current president elected to deliver that. tamil-speaking people voted for him to make change. >> can you explain to me - sorry, explain to me then because i understand that voting - voter turn out in jaffna and other areas in the north, was higher than usual, and a large number of tamil people voted for the new president. so what was that about? >> it is clear that tamil people voted against mahinda rajapaksa. they voted against the president who committed war crime against tamil people, and continued to commit atrocities. they didn't vote - they didn't have a choice. they didn't have a tamil candidate, so they voted for somebody better than the previous president. what they are looking for, they
wanted a change. they are hoping that the president-elect would deliver with the support and the pressure from the international community has to be there. it's important international community puts pressure and continues pressure going back on the justice process, the international process starting with the u.n. human rights group. u.n. high commissioner's investigation. it's not going back. putting further pressure on sri lanka, the government to cooperate with the u.n. resolution and set up the tribunal to look into the ong structural genocide against the people. >> thank you very much indeed for talking to us at al jazeera indonesian divers lifted the tail section from the crashed airasia out of the sea. the recovery of the tail is
vital for looking for the cockpit voice and data recorders. the airasia crashed into the java sea nearly two weeks ago, killing all 162 passengers on board. >> a judge in the u.s. dismissed a lawsuit seeking commoning from the u.n. -- compensation from the u.n. for haitian victims of a cholera epidemic. 9,000 died after waste from a nepalese peacekeepers camp spilled into a river five years ago. >> reporter: it's a major setback for haitian cholera victims' families and justice. a judge throwing out a class action lawsuit means the chances of the united nations facing questions in the 2010 color out outbreak -- collerholera cout break may not -- cholera outbreak may
not occur. there was evidence the u.n. introduced cholera, and al jazeera captured sewage the source of the cholera leaking from a nepalese u.n. peacekeepers base. when the u.n. refused to admit fault victims' rights groups and family members suspected a cover up and filed a class action lawsuit. victims lawyers reacted with shock and would repeal the ruling. >> we understood this would be an issue that would need to be decided upon appeal. the implications are grave. there is in nowhere in the world that one can turn when the u.n. doesn't comply with the u.n. obligations and the u.n. refuses to apply justice. >> reporter: as for the u.n. ban ki-moon came and said the organization had a moral
obligation to end the outbreak and tried to drum up support. the u.n.'s condition is the same they refused to take responsibility for the cholera outbreak. the judge's decision comes a few days before the 5-year anniversary of the earthquake that killed 230,000 people the u.s. justice department and the fbi are recommending charges against former cia chief david petraeus according to the "new york times." he adelaide adly -- allegedly provided classified information to his former mistress. the u.s. attorney-general has to decide whether petraeus will be indicted. >> in zimbabwe thousands had to leave their homes because of flooding. the red cross says it needed more money to help they say
affected by rain. >> walking through what is left of her village, sodden bricks and collapsed walls. this woman and hundreds of others had their homes flooded. >> translation: it was a grinding mill livestock - i lost it all. >> reporter: some described the flood as the worse to hit the country. at least 11 died. the sun is shining now, earlier this week heavy rain invaded northern areas of the country. >> there was a dip over the nearby corner. it brought in huge amounts of rain. >> reporter: those able to reach the aid center have been given tends for temporary housing.

u.n. reconciliation process. we don't have much more detail it's just coming in. i'm reading now that they are hoping to - i'm not quoting here - they are hoping to create a conducive dialogue. it's early steps. the positive beginning for a new process regarding the situation in libya. they have got to rival governments. one in the east of the country, one in libya, and they have corresponding rival militias with more developments and the rest of the news at al jazeera. >> still to come - it's the fall out from how paris's situation begins. >> we'll take you inside the
lib libya is under the control of two rival factions, one is in tripoli, the other in the east in tobruk. the interior minister says the level of alert is high. security will be increased across the country. it follows the killing of three gunman and an attack in which 12 were killed on wednesday yemen says it's behind wednesday's attack, the al qaeda, and the kouachi brothers suspected of being involved had links to the group. that is the top story, the events in france over the last couple of days. thousands marching through the streets of paris, in a show of solidarity on sunday. from the french capital we have this report. >> reporter: at the end of a week of violence that has shaken
france president francis hollande expressed the need for unity. >> translation: we are a nation of people that do not back down under pressure. we carry an ideal. >> reporter: france remained united. >> translation: france though it faced this challenge, if it is aware of the men and women of the security forces a body of courage, france is not finished with being a target. i want to urge you to be vigilant united and mobilized. >> reporter: the people want the government to investigate the violence that took place. is france divided? >> no, we must stay united. they tried to split us. to know kath lish french are french.
muslim french are french. >> reporter: some worry about a backlash. >> i feel bad about everything that happened. that's very sad. afraid but not afraid of violence but the reactions of society. i'm afraid of what is going to happen after, like there is a lot of division in french society. [ sirens ] >> reporter: and police presence is high in many public places despite the end of the procedures in north and east of paris. many are relieved that this episode of violence is over. all right. let's talk now to raphael, the director of international security studies at the royal united services institute in london. thank you for talking to us.
france is in a state of high alert today. interior minister has talked of there being increased security. first of all with hindsight can you give me your first impression as to what went wrong. >> i think that we know what went on in this situation. we don't have the full information yet. what we do know is there were individuals with long-standing connections to radical networks supporting on investigations and some spent time in prison. who had been abroad potentially to yemen where he's believed to have dealt with al qaeda there. have dealt with al qaeda there.
services... ..we are getting bits and pieces of engines. -- of information. what we are seeing is the reality of individuals that are radicalized to the point of violence and there is a large body of people with dangerous connections, which mandate further community response and gaol time. in other cases it's unclear what security should do with them. >> that's the next question. when increased security measures are announced what will they be and how effective could they be? >> the fact that the french had the attack on the magazine "charlie hebdo", and a kosher delhi, it comes after a number of incidents. i imagine they'll be looking for
high security around what would significantly feel like targets. targets for these sorts of people. there'll be greater security around certain schools and visible prominent jewish targets and greater security around the newspapers and magazines that may have published cartoons and other individuals. we'll see that. the other side of the equation the security service, we'll go back and look through the files, and going back over a lot of nfls that they may have to -- information that they may have to assess others that they should look closely at or other people who they may look at before and sort of moved on from that they need to refocus on. we need to see a refocussing across the board making sure that this sort of incident doesn't happen again. >> you flagged up the ability of the young men, it must be said
and discovering where their affiliations lie. obviously it is part of the message of al qaeda in the arabian peninsula, calling for lone wolves or whether they were directly in cahoots with sanaa or yemen any and aqa operatives. we know one of the brothers spent time in yemen training and claimed to have been financed by aqa. >> i think there's a number of things. for a lone boxwolf, we have to be careful what they mean. there are several involved. if anything we are dealing with a cluster that may be isolated from command and control. however, make it came in a loose direction of go back and do
something. it could be something as bake as that, the connection to the outside. we don't know. i think to determine it as a lone wolf is risky. they weren't alone. there was four much them operating in coordination i don't think you can call them a lone wolf pack. i think it's to your - the first point you mentioned about the youth, that's the interesting thing about the group. these are men in their early 30s, and these are men involved in radical activity for some time. late teenagers that we have seen getting caught up in the excitement around syria and iraq. people involved in radical activities they are hardened individuals with worrying connections. generally on the radar for some time. it's different to the overexcited views we see drawn
in to what happened in syria and iraq. these are more calculating and radicalized in some ways. >> thank you from the royal united services institute talking to us live. thank you indeed news coming in within the last 10-15 minutes. the libyan rival political factions agreed to a new round of talks to take place in the u.n. this is the u.n. announcing this. meanwhile, there has been gun battles across the fact tri for months. on friday six were killed, 200 injured close to the eastern cities. >> reporter: there's not much left. the early days of euphoria following the downful of muammar gaddafi have been replaced by this. [ gun fire ] >> reporter: gangs of heavily armed fighters battling for
control of territory. many of them are reluctant to give up the gun and go home. the united nations trying to get all the side to talk. >> it is extremely important to stop the fighting so that these political dialogue can start. >> reporter: before anything libya needs to sort out the government of the right now there are two parts, and the internationally recognised government in tobruk and another in tripoli, which libya's supreme court ruled is the legitimate one. the situation is complicated and it's ripping libya apart. >> we have to stand beside the man in order to have peace on our land and stop the bloodshed. but which brothers. >> the u.n. wants peace talks to
start, to salvage the country. we discussed the resumption of the dialogue. >> it's unlikely to be soon enough to prevent more violence. there has been deadly battle in misrata, benghazi tripoli and tobruk. the main airport is closed. and on tuesday, the last foreign airline in the country suspended flights. libya has become a dangerous unstable place, staggering from crisis to crisis and few parties are interested in trying to pull it all back together. >> many schools in mexico reopened after the christmas holidays but in acapulco hundreds are at home. many are on strike demanding security after a rise in kidnappings. adam raney talks to a mother
facing a difficult choice. >> reporter: home schooling, but not by choice. veronica is trying to fill in as her daughter's teacher. fatima's school closed due to strikes over a wave of kidnappings and killings of teachers in acapulco. one of mexico's violent cities much. >> translation: the gangs have robbed us of public safety and the kids can't go out to play like we used to when i was a child. >> reporter: 11-year-old fatima enjoys time with her mum. her plan to publish chemistry requires intense preparation - something lacking now. acapulco is one of mexico's famous resorts. it's lost its sheen as drug gangs fight for territory. it's not just criminals extorting businesses doctors and teachers.
anything they can get protection money from. fatima's headmaster said a kindergarten teacher was kidnapped and other families of the area. >> they grab you and take you and ask you for however much you have. sometimes you manage to be rescued. sometimes you don't come back. >> reporter: teachers have been a tlorn in the government's side. some thing it has political motives. the teachers will not go back to the classroom until the state government provide security. >> translation: the city state and federal government cannot guarantee safety where are they. this is sat. makes me try to see my class empty and filthy. how is this possible. >> reporter: state officials denied a request for an interview. students are missing out on their schooling. around 100 schools in acapulco
has been shut down. you see dust and spiderwebs on the seats, a sign of how long it's been since students occupied the class. this has been going on for two months maybe longer. as it carries on, the future for thousands of students is on hold. if you open a motorbike in south africa the chances are you have heard of the bike hospital. it's got a reputation for taking difficult cases and is getting recognition elsewhere too. we have this report from johannesburg. >> reporter: from the highway enginess pistons, seats and exhaust pipes form a mass of metal. inside the bike hospital parts are stacked. >> if we can't help you, you are not going to find it.
>> reporter: think of co-owner as a hoarder of motorcycles. he says he has millions in stock, new and dating far back. people come for a huge selection of parts, and they can get them cheaper and quicker if the dealership has the parts in stock. the bikes for customers are as diverse as its parts. police officers delivery men and black women bikers' club. >> i'm looking for something the manufacturer doesn't stock. i have a motorbike over 30 years old. >> reporter: calls of hep comes from from abroad. they have a zero interest. >> i wouldn't want to ship it out of the country. it's real. south african walkers. >> the bike hospital earns $100 million a year. most of that goes to salaries for employees, and the constant
compulsion for the parts. he gives his team lift jobs. doesn't necessarily come with a lift love of ridi before but i fail. it's not right for me. >> the biggest challenge for the bike hospital is space. periodic purges cannot keep pace with the pumps of parts. the goal is to ensure that no one leaves the bike hospital without two wheels restored. time for the sport with sanaa. >> thank you very much. football action. day two of the asian cup in australia. south korea wins the first match of the tournament. beating oman 1-0. the only goal of the group in stoppage in the first half. among the equalizer in the last few minutes.
kept out by goalkeeper. south korea are now level on 3 points with hosts australia. >> i think the boys who played today was not the same. i think we gave - we not strait points at the end of the game. something to work on what we have to do in the next game. so we play better football. and play a better performance. >> not such a good opening match for north korea, losing 1-0. igor with a header separating the two sides. north korea could have earnt a point with the last attack. saved by goalkeeper. the other group b match is approaching, china 1-0 up. they have denied rumours of unrest. it's been reported that lionel
messi wants the coach sacked. they were talking during a visit to new york at the end of the week which saw barcelona inspiring sporting director. he was dropped for barca's last leagua game. but the striker is not threatening to leave the club. >> what is my interest is to reduce the tension around the club. in the way that we said we are doing to do new elections at the end of the season and during the season. let's concentrate the efforts in sport on the team. >> the coach has defended the decision to play in the egyptian league. saturday the sides will meet for the first time. the violence of the team's 2012 match died down during the
