6:11 pm
turkish air force shot down the jet. rory challands has more from moscow. >> russia has been making things difficult for turkish trade, for several days now. it's been blocking produce at ports and stopping it going through various customs clearance post and that sort of thing. they are going to be formalised sanctions. turkey can make things difficult for russian shipping too. turkey controls the main strait that links the black sea and the mediterranean sea. these are the daredan else. -- dardanelles. under a treaty turkey cannot stop russian ships from using the strait unless a state of war exists between the two countries, although things are tense, we are not at that stage
6:12 pm
yet. but, perhaps what turkey is doing is a gentle reminder to russia that it does control shipping in the black see and mediterranean, more than russia would like, and it's a reminder that russia may not have everything its own way the u.n. envoy to yemen has met in aden to discuss peace talks. it's the first meeting since forces allied drove the houthis out to the port city. the rebels took control of the major cities. saudi arabia has been leading air strikes to roll bag the advance. >> nearly 200 nations agreed on a climate change draft during a summit in paris. it's a blueprint aimed at cutting global warming. while much of the fine print is yet to be worked out, the draft raises hopes that the summit

might end with an historic climate deal. >> al gore says the next generations are looking to us to provide answers to the climate problem. >> of course, there are disagreements on the wording of this section or that section, but ultimately at the end of this conference, we must come together and provide the answer to that third and final question, yes, we will change now is the right time, but the question is so much damage has occurred in the last 25 years, when people were not listening, how much time is left and how many resources are left to protect? i think that's the key. >> police in london say they are treating a knife attack on the underground network as a terrorist incident. it took place at a station, a man stopping three people. one is seriously injured, two others with minor injuries.
6:14 pm
the man was custody still to come - an al jazeera exclusive. we meet the armed vigilantes in burundi, who say they are defending their neighbourhoods from random attacks dozens dead after a fire in the oil platt conform in caspian sea. >> leicester city's run in the caspian sea. details later in sport. port. that's ahead. first, three suicide bombers attacked an island on lake chad, killing 27 people. 80 were injured on the border area between chad. niger, cameroon and nigeria. two of the attackers targeted a market, and a third suicide bomber hit a street. no one claimed responsibility for the attack. suspicion will fall on boko
6:15 pm
haram, which launched similar attacks in the area three gunmen wearing police uniforms have been killed after attacking a car belonging to a police commander. it is the latest incident in a nation hit by violence over the president's third term in office. the government says it is fighting rebels. kathryn soy spoke to some men who say they are protecting their neighbourhoods. here is their exclusive report. >> reporter: when the sun sets work begins in the suburb of burundi's capital bujumbura. pierre - that's not his name - and others are on neighbourhood watch. they say they are protecting their homes from the security forces and members of the youth wing, which they blame for random and regular killings in the city. "if they attack us, we'll defend
6:16 pm
ourselves", this man says. earlier we met two other young men. they dressed like police and dug out a hidden grenade. he said they'd use it today. they wouldn't say if they were an organised united, had a leader or were they get the weapons from. >> translation: police have been coming to the area, but at night we go to where they are and fight them. what started out as a bid for a third term by president pierre nkurunziza has evolved into armed violence. people have been killed every night, bodies left on streets. the opposition factions blame each other. >> translation: now, they have found another way. they try to negotiate with the
6:17 pm
government. but you cannot negotiate with a government committing matters like this one. >> the united nations, african union and human rights groups are concerned about the killings, which they say has an ethnic dimension to them it's a close affair. they were killing followed the 2010 presidential election, but more people now seem to have weapons. >> if they decide to combine forces, the vigilante groups and organised armed groups, we could find a rebellion that is more dangerous, sophisticated and gather more resources to challenge the state. >> the armed men told us they won't give up until president pierre nkurunziza steps down. government forces insist they'll hunt down each one of them. many innocent people are caught
6:18 pm
in the middle. >> angela is a researcher at the floridaish african institute and university of salah. she says the conflict is unlikely to develop along ethnic lines. >> there is, you know, an escalation of violence since the third-term protest, and election of president nooupierre nkurunz we have 220,000 killed. a little over 200,000 people who have fled the country and are in refugee camp, and an unknown number of people who are displaced inside burundi. the country has been through cycles of genocidal violence, and they were related to ethnic divisions in the country. the civil war that took place in the 1990s, was related to ethnic
6:19 pm
divisions. so there's a lot of sort of credible reasons to be concerned. the violence is escalating, and it seems there's a political impasse. i have difficulty, though, believing that we are facing another ethnic conflict in burundi. i don't think that burundi is divided in the same way, and that ethnicity plays as much of a role in this current political situation as it did in the past now, dozens of oil workers are feared dead in a fire on an offshore oil platform in the caspian sea. neave barker has that. >> in high winds and rough seas, a major blazen gulfs the platform. it's believed more than 80 workers were on the oil rig when
6:20 pm
the blaze started. some escaped into life boats. the government is yet to confirm casualties, but an independence report said dozens have been killed. the oil rig has been owned by the state company. 14 workers were killed in accidents. the country has some of the richest oil fields in the world. in incidents. three workers are missing, and another oil platform battered by the storm. you rescue operation has been launched the waters of south-east asia has more incidents of piracy than any other part of the world. it overtook somali as the main hub. the malacca strait is a strategic sea lane, and one of the most dangerous. since 2010 attacks doubled every year. in the first 10 months of this year, there were 174 reported
6:21 pm
incidents of piracy, and 12 attempts, that's more than a number of 2013. most of the targets are oil and tankers. pirates seem to be joint ventures between freelance pirates waiting in the harbour for jobs. >> reporter: pirates are back in south-east asia, after years of relative calm, creating fear in one of the world's busiest sea lanes, where 100,000 vessels pass through. carrying oil, from china, korea and japan - and consumer groups from middle europe - 12 ships hijacked. most were unreported. a malaysian shipping company was attacked for the third tine. nine pirates were arrested and gaoled tore 10 years. the owners say the way pirates
6:22 pm
operated has changed. >> the pirates were confined. they steal the shackles, the chains. they are not professional. maybe trying to do this stuff. but it's well organized. it's not easy transferring 700, 800 tonnes of oil. >> reporter: most pirates come from the fishing villages, but the syndicates are led by financiers, and other nations. they mostly target oil tankers. >> there's a demand for black market fuel. and generally this tends to go upstream to blending, if it's oil, or diesel i will or marine gas oil. it's been blended and moved to china and markets. if it's palm oil it's moving to the european market for
6:23 pm
refinement this is an exercise, this helped pirates operate with a small group. they managed to enter the boat carrying arms and take control over the ship. what happens next is that they'll transfer the cargo to another boat and leave this one on the indonesian island we meet two members of a syndicate who don't want to be identified. they say as middlemen they organise boarding teams and make tens of thousands of dollars with each attack. >> our life is at sea. this is our businesses. although this is illegal and not everyone agrees with it, this is what we do for a living. our syndicate does not only volve indonesian, it intoves malaysians and filipinos. often the syndicates are used inside, are part of the crew and navy personnel. six were arrested in indonesia
6:24 pm
for alleged involvement in the hijacking of the malaysian tanker. >> these six men are not directly involved. when i ask them, they said they didn't know there would be a hijacking. they said they were not part of the syndicate. >> reporter: 10 fishermen were arrested. the leaders of those involved in high-jacking for oil managed to evade arrest venezuelans will vote in parliamentary elections on sunday. they are seen as a test of support for the government of president nicolas maduro. reeling from a crisis caused by the plummeting price of oil. 19.5 million are eligible to vote tore 157,000
6:25 pm
representatives, 36 political parties are grouped into two coalitions. the ruling great patriotic poll, or the g.p. p or the opposition democratic unity, or mud. vins's -- venezuela's economic crisis left the ruling coalition looking divided. the popularity has fallen. most polls give the opposition a lead of 20-25 points. an overwhelming opposition with more than a two-thirds majority leading to a referendum seeing them democratically removed from office. >> i'm speak to eric farnsworth, national security affairs analyst and vice president of the council of the americas, joining us from washington. thank you for being with us. it looks at this point as if the ruling party in vernz is facing -- venezuela is facing a crushing defeat in the perimeter. what can you put it down to?
6:26 pm
because of low oil prices or is it poor management of the venezuela economy? >> well, we won't know the results until the vote is taken tomorrow, and tallied, and all of that, of course, but, yes, early indications would say that the government's low popularity means that it likely will suffer a defeat in the legislative election. the government is unpopular, parl nicolas maduro, for a number of reasons, it is depressed. the cost of oil is down, there's significant crime. some say that caracas is the world's most violent city, more so than kabul or baghdad or other cities, where there's armed conflict. caracas is dangerous, there's a shorge of basic supplies, so the ability to live and carry on one's life is difficult now, and frankly that supercedes an ideological context that may
6:27 pm
have occurred. >> do you think that - focus on the election itself for a moment. do you expect to be a fair one. >> well, i think that that is a very good question, and indications would be that people will be able to get to the polling places and cast their votes, that they'll be tallied. in terms of the act of voting, that will be the case. >> i don't think we can claim this is free and fair. the government has taken steps to assure that the steps accrue. whether it's the use of state resources, whether it's the drawing of electoral districts that will dissen franchise the weather. it's gaoling opposition leaders or qualifying others, or changing the rules of the game on short notice. i could mention a number of other things. the bottom line is all the
6:28 pm
circumstances surrounding the election favour the candidates, having said that, the individuals going to the poll will be likely able to cast their votes freely and fairly. >> how do you see this playing out then. if the ruling party losses in the parliamentary elections and it goes to a referendum. a referendum on nicolas maduro's government, is there a feeling that he's not going to go quietly. >> well, he has said very publicly that he is not going to go quietly. the opposition would have to win two-thirds of seat in the national assembly, moving forward to the referendum. even so, if they don't meet the threshold. president nicolas maduro said he is going to the streets, he'll
6:29 pm
make it difficult for them to exercise power. it will have to be something watched carefully. even before, in the coming years, 2016. >> good to speak to you, eric farnsworth joining us there from washington still to come on the newshour, how the quest for renewable energy is not sitting well with one french village government-authored textbook, the wealth gap, just some of the issues sparking anger? >> in sport, the formula 1 trophy handed to the winner. robin standing by with all the details. pass pass
6:30 pm
6:31 pm
6:32 pm
>> the only live national news show at 11:00 eastern. >> we start with breaking news. >> let's take a closer look. hello again, the top stories on al jazeera. iraq summoned the turkish ambassador in baghdad over the deployment of turkish troops. they insist they are training
6:33 pm
local sunni volunteers fighting the armed group turkey released three of four russian ships detained in the black sea port. they were stopped from sailing over safety violations. tensions have been high since turkey shot down a russian fighter jet last month nearly 200 countries agreed on a climate change draft during a summit in paris, paving the way for countries to reduce greenhouse gas and bring down rising global temperatures returning to the stop story on turkey. deploying troops in northern iraq, and the anger that is causing in baghdad. a retired brigadier general in the iraqi army joins us from washington. >> thank you for being with us. as we were saying, the turks, turkish prime minister saying it's a routine location, and the
6:34 pm
turkish forces set up a camp in coordination with the iraqi authorities, what is your response to that? >> well, regardless of which statement is truthful, because the iraqi government is saying it's a violation to their sovereignty, or the iraq sovereignty. turks are saying they are coming with the invitation of the government. regardless of who is truthful party in this issue, i could say that this is not a healthy sign between iraq and turkey, and needs them to go through diplomatic channels to address the issue. this would be difficult efforting the main focus on fighting i.s.i.s., rather than engaging themselves in a conflict between iraq and turkey. >> how would you characterise
6:35 pm
turkey's commitment to fighting i.s.i.l. questions have been raised over that, and the perception that cher interested in putting down the kurdish forces. >> turkey's strategy to fight i.s.i.s. is not different from the u.s.-led coalition or strategy to fight i.s.i.s. they don't want bashar al-assad to be in power, and don't want i.s.i.s. to be dominating on the situation. in this case, they are conflicting between the objectives and the priorities. which one should go first - i.s.i.s. or bashar al-assad. in this matter, i believe that i.s.i.s. is threatening, and they should fight i.s.i.s. first. not to fight bashar al-assad then. >> there has been criticisms made as well of the capability
6:36 pm
of the iraqi army in all of this. that is part of the reason why u.s. forces are there to some degree, it could be explained why turkish forces are there. there's a perception that they cannot handle all of this by themselves, and point to the fact that mosul remains in i.s.i.l. hands. it has been for well over a year now. what do you say to that? >> one of the main issue regarding iraqi army. yes need unanimous support from the players. kurds, sunnis and shia should support the government to elevate the combat readiness of the iraqi army. that iraq army could take the responsibility to fight. without political and crucial
6:37 pm
support, iraqi army will be weakened. without capability to fight any enemy or any challenge in the area of responsibility. >> good to speak to you, joining us there from washington the indian navy is sending more relief supplies to the southern city of chennai. >> three ships reached and three more have been sent to the devastated region. the rain has stopped, and water receding from part of the city. tens of thousands remained. >> the deaths of 14 patients in the southern indian city of chennai, as a result of power failures, owing to wide-spread flooding across the city. has become a national talking point. the private facilities like
6:38 pm
hospitals should have been ready for a crisis of this magnitude in the city. the critics argue that despite the private facilities having to have the facilities ready in terms of backup generators, or backups of backups in times of crisis or floods in low-lying areas, it's the government's responsibility to have oversight of what is and isn't happening and how ready the stayed is when it deals with a disaster. the debate is further in terms of infrastructure, perhaps in india. how prepared are facilities in areas of power, communication and water. the very things the essentials that are needed in times of crisis. this debate could continue for some time yet. now, across the world as
6:39 pm
renewable energy takes hold, more land has been taken up to build solar parks and wind farms, france has more than 800, resulting in hundreds of legal disputes and communities are divided on plans to triple the outpout. our environment editor nick clark reports. >> the region in central france, it's remote, rural and disturbs the piece and tranquility. unless you live near one of these. and here is the problem. two villages separated by a ridge and eight wind turbines. they are a long way to the down. a neighbouring village has no turbines, and a frontal view of the spinning blades. proceeds from the electricity go to st. clemman but not this down. claude lives under the ridge and on windy days he says the noise
6:40 pm
is unbearable. he said the turbines split the community. >> the first thing is the noise, and there's the cost of soundproofing and the house lost a third of the value, they destroyed woodland. that can't be good for carbon emissions. >> back in st. clemmen, the turbines are out of site and out of mind. >> personally, they don't bother me. we need something to give us energy. for me, this is clean energy. >> reporter: small scale wind farms are the norm in france. legal actions are multiplying, aimed at blocking the construction or getting them disband ed, you're bane -- turbine companies say it is about the future. >> translation: in 2030 france
6:41 pm
is committed to producing 40% of renewable energy, wind power is the simplest and easiest way to get there. >> reporter: as for the mayor - he says the only payback is ruined countryside. >> >> translation: what annoys me most is they produce electricity 9% of the time. the impact on the landscape is terrible. you see them 50km away. all that to not make electricity. >> reporter: this is likely to be the beginning. there are proposals for wind turbines a few kilometres away. this dispute becomes more and more commonplace as local authorities try to find that difficult balance between the need to keep the integrity of the landscape intact and the growing requirement for renewable energy. >> wind power provides 3.5%. there are plans to triple wind energy by 2020.
6:42 pm
this will become a more familiar site. something communities are going to reconcile anger over a state-authored history textbook, unpopular labour reforms and a widening wealth gap led to protests in the south korean capital. many feel the promises made by park geun-hye are unfulfilled. >> reporter: determined to be heard, for the second time in less than a month thousands of south koreans march through the streets of seoul to express anger at the government. it's not just about history books written by the state, or unpopular labour reforms. >> translation: the government ignored public opinion. and are reflecting that in policies. each and every one of us have frustrations in our minds. i came out to express that. >> there is a growing mistrust

of president park geun-hye, a conservative second generation politician elected three years ago by a small majority on the promise of being more progressive. park's father was president for years after a military coup in 1961, and is credited with the economic growth. when his daughter promised economic vitalisation, many believed her. >> they are worried the president has other freights in common with the father. he put these posters up. police dropped by unannounced accusing him of treading lies. >> if around 10 police visit. it's serious. the freedom of expression, and the values in the constitution are being undermined. more serious if they do this to ordinary people. the so-called ordinarily people will not be deterred.
6:44 pm
people feel that things haven't gone well for a while. anything could have triggered the anti-government backlash. politics, frustration expressed is over economic realities, a widening wealth gap, and the erosion of the middle class. >> analysts say such demonstrations would have happened regardless of who was in power. >> we seek growing polarization in this society for sure. >> that is increasing confrontation and unhappiness in the society. it's not just the streets they are going to to be heard. with south koreans feeling worse off now than they have before, they hope change comes between the silent prayers, and the angry chants we'll take a break here on the newshour. when we come back, all the sport. bubba watson rules in the bahamas, as they head into the
