>> techknow only on al jazeera america >> announcer: this is al jazeera. hello, welcome to the newshour, i'll jane dutton live from the al jazeera headquarters in doha. coming up in the next 60 minutes, tunisia's president vows to wage a war against terrorism. two people behind the nations deadliest attack are named. a victory against boko haram. soldiers from chad and niger retake a town in in north-eastern nigeria. >> tiger skins, rhino horns and

bear cubs dash- - laos's illegal trade. all the sport - bangladesh's team takes on india in the world cup quarter files. -- quarterfinals - the latest from that match in melbourne tunisia named the two people it says were behind the deadly attack on one of the capital's most popular sites. the announcement following the president's promise to wage a merciless war against terrorism. this is the scene in tunis now, that's the entrance to the compound that is home to the bardo national museum. a couple of armed guards are stationed outside in an armed vehicle. let's look at what happened there on wednesday. two gunmen wearing military
6:02 am
uniforms entered the museum killing 14, 12 tourists. the motivation unclear. hours later, the come pound was stormed, killing both gunmen. hundreds gathered in tunis to pay respects to the people killed. they held flags and banners denouncing terrorism. the latest news is the identification of these men. what more do you know about them, and their intentions? >> well the authorities said at least one of the men was known to the intelligence services. that they went on to say that he wasn't known for anything in particular. that doesn't enlighten us more as to what his motivations must have been. however, one of the lines of
6:03 am
inquiry that clearly the intelligence services and the security forces will be pursuing is the question of tunisians who have left to fight either in libya or in syria or iraq and it's believed there could be as many as 3,000 such people. those who have returned may be about 500. it's believed 500 have returned. the nightmare scenario here as in countries in europe as well is a worry that young people who have been to syria and iraq have returned radicalized and could use the experience gained fighting overseas to plan attacks at home. so that clearly is one of the lines of inquiry that people are looking at here. >> any idea what impact this is likely to have on the terror laws that are discussed at the moment? >> well the tunisian economy as a whole, and the tunisian
6:04 am
tourism industry are only starting to pick up again after the revolution the uprising of four years ago. of course sentiments which dictates where people go to on the holiday lags behind the reality on the ground. nevertheless, the fact that there has been a number of anti-terror operation, there has been a number of incidents that has kept people away. tourism really is the lifeblood of this country, and the economy. obviously an attack like this specifically targetted at tourists and at a major tourist attraction will have a devastating effect. we'll look at tour groups cancelling cruise ships no longer stopping in the port. it will have a very serious effect on the tourism industry and on the economy as a whole. >> and what about security now? >> security now has certainly
6:05 am
been tightened up. we can see outside the bardo museum, the sign of the attack the scene of the attack on wednesday. heavily armed troops there, sniffer dogs as well. there have been still further investigations, searches of the museum and apparently just on thursday morning, a couple of tourists were found who had been hiding in the museum overnight, too scared to come out. still investigations going around on the scope, but also further afield. the authorities said that two gunmen were killed when the siege came to an end. there could be three others who may be at large. and that is apart from other groups, other cells that could be under the radar in tunisia and planning other attacks. we are looking at a security operation and intelligence gathering operations focussed not only on the specific attack but trying to hit a neutralized
6:06 am
other attacks. >> jacky rowland, looking at live pictures of people milling around the seencreen of the attack an international coalition fighting boko haram has driven them out of an area in the north-east. 228 boko haram fighters were reportedly killed during the operation. we have more from abuja. >> there's reports of major town recaptured by boko haram. it could mean the beginning of the end of the boko haram insurgency. according to the military over the last four weeks various towns have been recaptured downs like dainga seen in which 200 were killed and others. two days ago the military spokesperson tweeted that adamowa is free. borno soon to be free by the
6:07 am
able military # never again, referring to the three states in the north-east, worst affected by boko haram. there has been misinformation and inaccuracy around the insurgency before. the military announced the cap tour and killing of the boko haram leader only for him to appear on youtube days later. nobody is holding their breath. nobody is saying it's over. if the reports are to be believed, the end of boko haram, according to the military is horizon. the impact has to be positive. the presidential poll is due in march. governship in april. and security a major concern. the ability of the people in the region to vote. if the security improves the belief is that the election will go off peacefully in safely. >> sierra leone's president
6:08 am
sacked his deputy. the president says that the deputy abandoned his duties after he sought asylum in the u.s. embassy. he was expelled from the all people's congress party, accused of instigating unrest. he denies the accusations. [ no audio ] the clock is ticking on an agreement over iran's nuclear programme. a fourth day of talks is underway in switzerland. u.s. secretary of state john kerry and his iranian counterpart zarif are hoping to reach an agreement by next week. let's go to james bays our diplomatic editor live for us. talk us through the remaining
6:09 am
issues. >> well there are a series of issues that have to be in place before the framework agreement. which is supposed to be done the deadline the end of the month. 12 days from now, intense negotiations on a number of different aspect of the deal. there seem to be three different tracts of negotiation under way. one is the detailed technical work and the other is negotiating with the head of iran's nuclear agency. one of the issues is research or development. the future of iran's programme. then there's the political tract headed by the secretary of state. it invested a great deal of time, staying in this resort all week same for zarif. one of the main issues is how they are going to lift slowly the sanctions of iran in a way
6:10 am
that there are some sanctions in place that could be reimposed if iran was going to breach the deals of any terms. the third tract is not just the u.s. there's the p5+1. so there are representatives of all the other five countries in the international community in that group who are having meetings here james, and the view - is a deal likely if not, what happens then? >> well i think it's fair to say they are making progress. everyone you speak to says progress is taking place, can i tell you if there's going to be a deal i can't. we are getting all the information from snatched conversation, the meetings taking place in closed rooms. an iranian negotiator says when they do much of the internal deliberation, they do it going for a walk because they are worried the rooms in the hotel may be bugged. >> james bays, thank you for

6:13 am
family. >> reporter: the hope is thursday's court appearance will not bring more delays but will move the retrial forward, bringing them closer to exoneration. a court in myanmar sentenced two journalists to death. they were charged in february. they published remarks from an unnamed informant that military representatives had a low level education libya's tripoli-based government says a bomb blast stalled the latest round of peace talks between two governments. different groups claimed responsibility for explosions near tripoli's only working airport in the past week. i.s.i.l. fighters said they were behind the explosion, injuring five personnel. the latest blast meant the
6:14 am
delegation from tripoli couldn't travel to morocco. we have more from where the talks are taking place. what are they taking place about the attacks on the security at the moment? >> basically the united nations told us that they were expecting talks to start by midday here in the moroccan capital. because of the tripoli-based delegation which is stuck at the airport, they are waiting for security clearance to take off as it came under attack. basically they were waiting for the tripoli based allegation to arrive. they are hoping that both delegations will be here in the afternoon. it's a critical situation, coming against a backdrop of a statement issued by the united nations mission in libya, accusing both parties of undermining the political
6:15 am
process by the ongoing air strikes against each other. they refer to attacks targetting the zintan airport yesterday and attacks targetting different airports across the country, saying that these are counterproductive and undermining the political process. in general, the sentiment here is that libyan factions have no other options but to meet here. they'll continue to build up momentum and have a political settlement, otherwise it will be anarchy and chaos. >> depends what the outcome is there, and how it impacts on the ground. tell me what is on the table. what are all sides bringing to the table in order for that to happen? >> well the issues are basically forming a national unity government to put an end to the political impasse. as far as this is concerned we have reports from both parties from the internationally recognised government of tobruk
6:16 am
and the tripoli based g.n.c. they are willing to move forward and have a national unity government which is functioning in the near future with full executive authority, and then the security arrangements particularly when it comes to disbanding the factions and pulling them out from the main cities, and forming an army tasked with two prerequisites, first of all securing the country and leading the fight. the problem we have here is because of the growing trust between both parties, they say okay if we have a national unity government, who has the ultimate say, will it be the tripoli based government. as far as this is concerned, the international community and the united nations ayou know what you have to have a deal. if you don't have a deal you'll be more divisions and i.s.i.l.

6:34 am
he was set to be happened on thursday for killing a 7 yield. they'll look into whether he was pressurised to confess. his lawyer says his conviction was a miscarriage of justice. >> every report shows that at the time of the child no one cared to check what the age of him was. as a result it was never noticed in trial or at the time of the appeal before the high court. finally when the appeal reached the supreme court in 2007 someone raised the objection that this boy was a minor at the time of his conviction, and it was a death penalty. the supreme court rejected the grounds saying under pakistani law, if you don't make the objection at the trial statement, you can't raise it at the appeal stage.
6:35 am
a number of workers in the legal frat earntie and n.g.o. are looking to get this boy within the paradigm of those structures. however, as i said earlier, at the time of the trial, all the way through to the supreme court no one realised the boy was 14. the conviction was finality. now under the constitution, the only thing left to do is that it provides the president with the power to pardon the sentence. >> this was started in 2012 and was rejected. we heard good news that the president is going to put a stay on the death penalty. it's a 72 hour stay. it gives everyone time to bring evidence there has been fighting near the eastern ukrainian city. despite the fragile ceasefire in place, the two ukranian troops and pro-russian separatists - heavy shelling and machine-gun

6:37 am
now is the turn of the solar eclipse. the great thing is will it be cloudy. this is a picture across the atlantic. it's a tourist haven where a lot of interest will be interested. the track for this system takes it across this area. if you look at the picture, there's a lot of weather fronts and that battle of whether or not the cloud will be too thick to let anything development. there is the track. it goes across the islands. they are the only two areas, really, where there's a chance of seeing anything. and the sight is worth seeing. this is back in 2006, in turkey. i've traced a couple of eclipses. for many areas across northern europe. you will not see anything as good as that. across the farrow islands they have. fingers are crossed and they produced a boost in the islands. lot of people come in with the hope of seeing something. looking for it on the chart.
6:38 am
it looks cloudy across this part of the world. moving through to friday there's room for optimism. we see the cloud, might see one or two breaks, reminiscent of the u.k. there's a chance that it will. >> quite exciting stuff. that solar eclipse that we hear about, that will thrill amateurs is likely to pose a challenge for countries relying on solar power, in germany, where 6% of energy is generated by solar panel. it's put backup energy sources to the test as nick spicer reports. europe generates 100 times more electricity from the sun than it did during the last solar eclipse. germany has a million solar panels, small and feeding into the power grid from individual homes. this specialist points out the
6:39 am
black solar panels in a university. he studied the effect and says for once cloudy weather is not the problem. >> the worst case scenario is sunny days over germany, so during the morning, the cell starts to produce electricity, and we have more or less a drop of about 11 power stations. and then eclipse is over. electricity goes up in the raping -- range of 18 gigawatts. >> those that run of the energy grid has a back up plan. wind energy and ground coal from those in the east of the country. >> the eclipse could have effects reaching across europe. solar power dropping by 35,000 megawatts in the surveys of
6:40 am
two hours. that's the equivalent of 80 plants like this one going off line at the beginning of an ordinary working day. the solar eclipse, where the moon passes between the earth and the sun will only be visible in the faroe islands, and in the arctic. this will be the first time an eclipse had a significant effect on a power system. it will be a test for germany's energy u-turn when chancellor angela merkel ordered a change from renewable power. think tanks advising the government say the eclipse will be watched wherever solar power installations are being built. >> we have seen in dubai that this is being built. we see it in the u.s. california everywhere coming. so we are all around the world need to have a closer look on
6:41 am
how to manage the system with a lot of solar, and this is maybe a stress test to that system. >> the energy network managers are confident the system will handle the challenge of the eclipse and may provide lessons in years ahead. as solar energy wins converts. >> in senegal villages and rebels come together to check the forests. the black market for the timber trade is booming. it's worth tens of billions. we have this report on the projected to save trees in southern senegal. >> a 200-year-old try, cut down in less than an hour. this was a sacred forest to the people rear one that ancestors protected. in the region of senn gam, it's
6:42 am
a symbol of time ancestry and identity. the tree is a bad omen. >> it breaks my heart. men cannot live without nature. >> it's illegal to cut them down without a permit. no one is here to impose the law. a peace deal between separatists and the government was brokered two years ago. tensions are high. it's difficult to know who is in charge deep in the forest. former environment minister ali hyder believes he was removed because he exposed a black market operation, involving chips, businessmen and the gambian state. in neighbouring gambia it's forbidden to cut wood. it all comes from senegal. i'd like to denounce the ships
6:43 am
carrying, they know it's illegal, but they do it. it's a huge international network in which gambian and international traders profit the u.n. estimates the global trade to be worth between 30 and $100 billion. the damage is too obvious to ignore. an unlikely alliance between the villages and the army join forces to protect the land. they patrol watch and replant the forest. forming is a way to tackle the illegal timber trade. >> when farming there is always someone on the ground. coping watch. it is ours. the project is small. it may take time to save the
6:44 am
forest. >> the first lady is calling for an effort to effort for girls. it's a let the girls learn initiative. it's run out of garner and uganda. >> meanwhile, in the united states, a new programme is working to give kids from low income families a chance to get out of poverty. the focus is the children's command of words as tom ackerman explains. >> reporter: it's deprad use day for the -- graduation day for the children the first to take part in a learning programme relying on their mothers and fathers to boost on element in the future. it's the size and variety of a child's spoken vocabulary.
6:45 am
expensive research shows the more parents talk to the kids the faster the vocabulary goes on average, the poorer the family the sparser the word counselled. the citizens are trying to even the odds for the low income families. >> what we are looking for is impoverished language environments. they can nurture by having feedback. the importance is the first three years of life. >> that feedback provided by miniature voice recorders worn by each toddler. every week or two they capture conversations between parents and children. through algorithms they analyse the talks. the goal - to prod parents to maximise the words. >> it's like nourishing the baby brain. the internal computer is developing and responding. >> reporter: the mother of this
6:46 am
2-year-old says he has seen early results. >> i knew the programme would hep. it did. he's talking and saying four words. and he's doing a lot better than his aim, i think. >> reporter: scarlett talks to her immigrant parents in spanish. >> translation: it motivates us to give more time to all our kids so they are also learning. >> reporter: system take years to determine the long-term benefits of the programme. more kids are joining it in providence in other u.s. cities. in the struggle to escape poverty, this is a tool. success proves by counting words, words do count. >> reporter: still ahead on al jazeera - it is the stuff of science fiction, that robots in the home and workplace could leave people out of work. and we have your sport in a moment. find out whether it's sink or

it is an appealing vision. instead of having to do your own chores and go to work every home could have a robot to do it for us. as reported the development of robotic technology could leave many without a job. this is not a story about how one day robots may kill us all. it is a story about how robots may soon take our jobs.
6:49 am
this is herb the home exploring robot butler and she is here to help us. we are looking at putting them into the home with the elderly and disabled. and extend independent living. >> it's a comforting vision of automation. robots enhancing life productivity gains spread across a population that has more leisure time or open up as a result of technological advances. it's not how things seem to work out. it's true they create job categories, and develop the pace. we can indicate job capabilities. a study at oxford found robots could replace half of all jobs in the u.s. - from transportation and logistics to administrative and service industry jobs. carnegie university led the
6:50 am
world in testing several autonomous robots without supervision. they are called cobots or collaborative robots. >> all the jobs of navigation. show me the mono-lisa in the louvre or the radiation depp -- department or where i can find this in the supermarket. >> so it depends on the person that own it. >> yes, and programmes it. and when i get out of the way it say thank you. >> reporter: the event control is the key issue for those studying the social implications of robotic, and the motive that corporations have in investing in this technology to replace us. academics are looking at alternative models like teaching communities to master the technology themselves. >> they choose to practice around the world, understand the
6:51 am
problems and we teach them new technologies, and they shaken it for their lives, so they are not victims but inventors of the future. corporate america will not counsel that. >> reporter: for now they need our help for example, to use an elevator. it will not always be the case. perhaps it's a good time to work out guidelines for the future. >> they could be taking our jobs soon. >> not unless they can use elevators. >> time for the sport. melbourne cricket ground with now india and bangladesh are battling for a place in the world cup semifinals. india won the toss and chose to bat at the m.c.g. the bowlers have been in batsman for 115/3. when sharma added 103.
