♪ good evening, everyone. welcome to al jazeera. i'm john siegenthaler in new york.

8:01 pm
nairobi while kenyan authorities say they are now in control of five hostages and five hostages are free. several of the gunmen have not yet been found. there was more fighting today. the sound of intense gunfire and more explosions filled the air around the mall. the rebel group al-shabab has claimed responsibility. kenyan leaders say there is another organization that is ultimately responsible for this attack. kenyan's foreign minister spoke with james bays. >> this is al qaeda. the home of al qaeda. the way this thing was planned. i just told you, that -- they have been talking to everybody, obviously. if it was just al-shabab, i don't know how much training you would get. this is definitely al qaeda.
8:02 pm
it was led by somebody not some alia. we need to understand that, and giving them a different name doesn't actually help. we need to call them by their name, the name they acquired since 9/11. and continue to fight them in that way. >> joining us now to talk about safety procedures in the united states and malls is peter hern. welcome, peter. >> good evening, john. thank you. >> is this a new wave of terrorism that we haven't seen before? >> no, you're talking about an attack on kenya, on what you would have to call a very soft target. security is fairly minimal.
8:03 pm
>> so you wouldn't expect to see more soft targets hit by terrorists? >> no, i think terrorists are a target of opportunity. i think two an attack on a soft target has always been the concern. we do a lot of work and preparation for things like hijackings and attacks on trains and things of that nature. but a soft target is a soft target, and that's anywhere from a group of people get together and the security is fairly minimal, you would have to call that a soft target. >> we have seen mass shootings in the united states. we haven't seen this type of attack on malls or up scale resorts. so i guess the question is could we see a level of security in this country that they experience in tel-aviv for example? >> i don't think so. i think you'll see a ramp up on
8:04 pm
what the issues are in malls from mall security, to working with the departments, and up the chain depending on what could happen. but whether it's a mall or a school it's the same issue of having to deal with an attack. i don't think you could see something as organized as what you are seeing in kenyan. >> clearly since 9/11 security has changed in lots of places, but when i ride the train between washington and new york or go to grand central station, despite the sign that increased security is there, it's still a free place to move about. >> that's correct. and in our society, we're very -- understand that that is our society. we do that, and i don't think we would tolerate shutting down
8:05 pm
trains and going through metal detectors at malls, but it's a security issue, and people are aware of that. the mall of america they do lockdown drills just like you do in the schools in this country to get ready for any event of any kind of a mass shooting inside of a mall or public facility like that. >> is it a matter of having a better plan or actually increasing security? >> the plan is important. understanding what you are supposed to do in a mall just like a high school from the principal to the janitor. if something happens where are you suppose go and what are you supposed to do. the clients in the mall, understanding where they are supposed to be and understanding lockdown drills. every year fbi offices pretty much will do what we call a mass
8:06 pm
field training exercise, and in 2006 into 2007 in buffalo, we did a field exercise that wouz -- was called mall mayhem, because he believed it would be a good idea to do a training to make sure we knew and understood how our crisis management plans would work in the event of a mall attack or something like that. the training of first responders and working together should things like this happen are just as important as the intervention. >> all right. peter thank you for your inside view. we appreciate it. >> one group in indianapolis is trying to stop the recrew of americans to al-shabab.
8:07 pm
>> it is something that this community braces for every time they hear of an attack of al-shabab. there is a large sew mallian community here. and they have gotten together to condemn this attack. they held a news conference in which they condemned the attack and distance themselves from the ideology of al-shabab. and they have pushed for more engagement to try to prevent further recruitment of the youth here in minneapolis. john. >> there was some question whether some american sew mallians were part of the attack.
8:08 pm
what are you hearing about that? >> so far activists who are in constant communication with federal authorities, say they haven't had any confirmation. now there have been men who have gone missing over the last few years, families are look for them. they believe they may have been recruited. but there has been no confirmation that anyone from this area was involved in attacks in kenya. but there is a lot of concern that information may come out that may connect people to these concerns. we talked to a young college graduate who said the community has been unfairly scrutinized every time there is an attack like this. >> these people are destroying our home country. they destroyed us to run to here. and they want to destroy our reputation by doing that,
8:09 pm
whatever they are doing. they are a pathetic people. we should not be associated with them. >> reporter: and john that is the key here. that's what community members want to reiterate. there has been no confirmation that anyone from this community has been tied to those attacks. but they are bracing in case there is information released. >> usher thank you. as world leaders descend on new york city tonight for the general assembly, it is iran that could make history. the new president has implied he is ready to start a diplomatic relationship with the united states. john what is expected from iran? >> reporter: well, john, what happened today was there was a lot of excitement that went around the united nations when it become there was to be this

chair at that meeting. that will be the highest-level meeting that there has ever been between any u.s. administration and the iranians since the iranian revolution back in 1979. there was something in 1998 involving madeline albright, but that involved a deputy foreign minister. so we really do have history in the making tonight. and people are looking forward to seeing what the outcome is. >> all right. john what else can we expect? >> well, i think the real headline is going to come tomorrow, because the newly elected iranian president is now in town. he flew in this afternoon, and he is going to be addressing the general assembly tomorrow. and after that op-ed piece, i think it's fair to say that everyone is very much looking forward to hearing his words.
8:12 pm
president obama of course is also speaking tomorrow in the 10:00 hour eastern time. but clearly iran now, and syria are going to dominate this general assembly. it depends on what the president says tomorrow. regarding syria, for president obama and john kerry spending the rest of the week trying to nail down a security agreement. because right now they just have a framework, and they are looking for a security council resolution, and they can't get one. the problem is paperwork. there's a suspicion the russians are holding the process up somewhere, but in the meantime any process is stalled here in new york. >> all right. john at the united nations tonight. hah a number of events are scheduled at the un this week.

8:15 pm
the reviews are in, and they are universal, the ransom is unworkable and unrealistic. >> if congress votes to continue funding obamacare that union exemption will not be far away, and then we'll be left in a world where the job-killing consequences of obamacare fall just on hard-working american families, not on corporations or members of congress, and in the near future i predict not on union bosses, only on hardworking american families and people struggling to climb the economic ladder. >> ted cruz doesn't have enough republicans on his side. even mitch mcconnell nows the republican leader here in the senate, john, says he will not join a filibuster. the trouble is it is going to

free in the nairobi mall. kenyan soldiers stormed the mall late last night to rescue hostages who had been held inside since saturday. world leaders are meeting in new york city for the start of the united nations general assembly, more than 130 members of state and government will spend the next several days discussing important issues. president obama arrived this afternoon as he does each year, but this year the possible arrival of another president, saadam's president who is wanted for genocide charges. >> reporter: omar bashir is one of the world's most wanted men. and he could be headed to new york for the general assembly.
8:31 pm
he hinted he would attend. four years ago the international criminal court indicted bashir for genocide in sudan's giant western region of darfur. the united states is under no obligation to arrest bashir if and when he sets foot in new york. it does have to ensure his safe passage to the part to the east side of manhattan. it's possible that bashir's visa will be mysteriously delayed. that is a trick the u.s. government has pulled off before when unwelcome diplomats have tried to get to the general assembly. if he does come here, he and his delegation will be seated immediately in front of the united states in the temporary building on the north lawn that

the visa while also recognizing there is an arrest warrant it needs to look at. the u.s. also has obligations to prosecute and punish, genocide, war crimes. >> and if it doesn't? what happens? >> well, i think we should see how it plays out. i think it's too soon to say. what we have seen is when he does visit, it can backfire. and that was the situation in nigeria in summer. he insisted on a visit to nigeria, he went, and he got up and abruptly left less than 24 hours, never made his scheduled speech, and was ridiculed in the sudanese press as civil society brought legal action against him. >> he doesn't have a visa yet. >> does not.
8:35 pm
>> so he can't get into the united states without a visa. >> presumably. >> so he could be stopped at the airport. >> at this point he has no basis to enter the united states without a visa. should he will granted a visa, he could arrive, and there could be questioned that arise. >> if he gets through, would he then proceed to the un and they let him in? >> that's something the un will have to deal with should it actually come to pass. >> what do you think? >> what i have learned from following bashir's visits for years, is i cannot predict the future here. but what i can say is that the only place he belongs is in the hague to answer the case against him. >> all right. thank you very much.
