6:01 pm
>> i'm tony harris. the united states is sending more troops to iraq to help with the quite against vice. the white house announced this afternoon that president obama authorized the depolite of 1500 more to iraq. they will support ring forces battling isil fighters mike, tell us more about these troops, and if there is anything in the time announcement. >> the caveat we heard so many times before, these are not combat troops on the ground or iraq or syria for that matter is really starting to raise suspicions now. the president if he gets his way now, up to 1500 advisers
6:02 pm
advising iraqi and peshmerga forces that would double the number of adviser advisers in iraq right now. and that would raise concerns especially among democrats. the president asking for $5 billion to fight isil in iraq and syria for this fiscal year. two things happening here, tony. first of all the administration said that there is going to be an offensive by iraqi forces against isil forces in anbar very close to baghdad in the sow called sunni tribal areas. that's going to be coming in the coming months. u.s. advisers are going to play a role in that as well in training. many iraqi you wants simply don't have the trust. they're not viable in the estimation of top military a brass, so some of these advisers will be involved in retraining. at the pentagon the rather
6:03 pm
admiral john kirby had this to say by the way this is shaping up. >> what nearly drove this was th prime minister al abadi saying i request this help, and general austin's assessment that this would be beneficial for the overarching goals inside, and inside iraq so a number of concerns being risen, not so much the money as the lame duck session comes in to session in congress, but also this concern about mission creek now roughly doubling the number of u.s. advisers within iraq. >> earlier today the president met with congressional leaders from both sides o parties of the white house. some are speaking out. what are they saying? >> it's now become a fight that
6:04 pm
has come out. those faces are in a new role, princecally the majority level going public. mitch mcconnell was there despite immigration reform its shaping up to be ugly. the president said and it's repeated again today that he will take unilateral executive action on immigration reform, do what he can in the perimeters defined by the white house to stop the number of deportion. this is what boehner said would poison the well, and in the family dining room in the residents of the white house there has been back and forth sharp exchanges public statements by congressional leaders over exactly what transpire. it's shaping up to be a very ugly fight in the short term. >> a last one, a current congress leaves office in january. many will say good riddance.
6:05 pm
what will lawmakers have to accomplish during that time, and can we expect some major fights. i think you're indicating that that might be the case. >> well, i think on immigration, yes. i think that's going to detonate another political firestorm in washington, but as far as the nuts and bolts i think both sides are interested in doing this with as little drama as possible. remember there are some nominations include judicial nomination still a backlog and the senate confirms the nomination. other than that, we don't expect a long session. they're back in session next week. there will be leadership elections within the republican party and democratic party where mitch mcconnell is expected to
6:06 pm
be officially elevated to leade leader. >> these exclusive images show fighting between two sides near the syrian-controlled part of the golan heights. the al-qaeda linked group has been fighting in the country. thorpe targeting fighters with the khorasan group.
6:07 pm
>> what is difference, one of the headquarters close to the turkish border was hit as well. we heard one of their spokes people who said none of the groups fighting against the assad regime seems to be faced from the coalition airstrikes and questioning the intention of those airstrikes certainly when the narrative had been that it was only against isil. now there is a fear of bombardment, they held areas for more years now, now there is a feeling of coming under bombardment. it's a very active war still. this is a key city that the government is trying to take back. they control the east. the opposition control the east. there have been barrel bombs there in the 4 hours where 20 civilians have within killed.
6:08 pm
think i think we need to remind our viewers, millions are still outside and no political solution seems to be at the table at the moment even though there are talks behind the scenes. that seems a very long way off. >> stephanie dekker there. jews are only allowed to shift the compound that contains al aqsa mosque and the dome of the rock. israel said it will change those rules but many are skeptical after seeing israeli troops enforce their own security measures. >> reporter: well, that huge israeli security presence right around the old city ahead of fry
6:09 pm
prayer and during friday prayers have filtered away from palestinian neighborhoods. security forces bracing themselves for another evening of protests. in occupied east jerusalem. the scene of many protests for some time. however, in the backdrop of all of that we're now hearing comments from senior israeli officials including the prime minister benjamin netanyahu appealing for calm. we also heard from the chief rab lie near jerusalem also appealing for calm. but the fact of the matter is that although it's now become clear that the israeli leadership is becoming very concerned about what's going on in the occupied east with the protests, with the violence, there is still a huge security presence. that certainly isn't helping calm things down. and, indeed, we are expecting more protests, whatever the case this issue, which has been brewing here in the occupied east of jerusalem it's quickly
6:10 pm
becoming an international concern. we of course have heard jordan raise concerns to the u.n. security council. we have the e.u.'s foreign ministry here discussing the issues with the israeli foreign minister and the white house has expressed concern. there is a lot of pressure to calm things down here. they've been using heavy security forces does not seem to be doing the trick. one would imagine that's why we're hearing these comments and appeal for calm by the israeli government. >> well, today's protests are the latest in a cycle that began two weeks ago. at its core access to an area to islam, judaism and christianity alike. >> the reason why there are scuffles triggered here is because israel can change the
6:11 pm
way people can worship here, and it's nothing new. it's been going on for centuries. palestinian and israeli forces clashed on friday at the west bank in east jerusalem. it's the latest unrest to one of the most contested religious sites in the world. located in east jerusalem it's the site what the jews refer to as the temple mount and muslims a sanctuary, and christians meet here, too. >> this is what makes it so difficult to negotiate over it. >> last week israel temporarily closed off the compound and then opened it only to women and men over 50. the conflict dates back centuries. romance and arab armies fought for control of the area. in 1967 israel captured it from jordan along with east jerusalem and the west bank.
6:12 pm
but jordan still acts as the compound's custodian. muslims have been allowed to worship at al aqsa mosque and dome of the rock. the whiling wall is the only part of the compound that remains from the ancient second table. the relations have long been tense andrals have increased their demands that jews be allowed to pray at the site. >> they should open the gate instead of rewarding terror by keeping it closed. it should be open to jewish visiters. >> protect those who pray. this sacred place belongs to muslims. the jews have no right. >> worshipers have responded with protest angry on what they see as the assault on an religious site. >> once you understand that, you
6:13 pm
can understand the emotions of the others as long as you don't respect the emotions of the other, you will not find a solution. >> this marks a significant change along religious israeli jews. many would not enter the temple mount for fear they might defile the site. >> coming up in a couple of minutes we'll take a deeper dive into the situation in jerusalem and why it is coming to a head right now. a historic day the a judge allows the city of detroit to come out of bankruptcy. we're joined live from detroit with bisi onile-ere. explain what it means for the city's financial future. >> good evening, tony. this deal basically brings detroit a new financial start. the bankruptcy judge spends over an hour explaining his decision
6:14 pm
he said it came down to this, that the city's plan was fair and feesful. the emergency managers spent months negotiating elements with major hold out creditors and city workers and retirees, they eventually agreed to mention tut and there was a deal hammered out to save the city's heart work. a lot was done in a short amount of time. the day after the judge has made his decision, michigan governor rick snyder talked to the media and said there is still a lot of work to do. >> i feel like downtown, midto midtown, riverfront, truly exciting things, but we do need continuing focus, we need to redouble our efforts on the neighborhoods to make detroit a place where detroit can raise their families, have their kids grow up and have their kids raise their families right there and have a better and better quality of life. >> there is certainly a sense of
6:15 pm
optimism drought detroit today. this bankrupt exit will be licht, or this bankruptcy will bbankruptcy will be lifted in the next couple of weeks. >> how soon will the city see improved city services. >> as part of the plan, the city wants to invest $1.4 billion to remove blight. as you know there are quite a few abandoned structures in the city, and they want to improve essential city services such as police and fire. there are some residents who are still upset that the city had to go through this process, but there are those who are hopeful, and they say they're already seeing signs of improvement. >> bisi onile-ere for us in detroit. thank you. >> president obama will announce his choice to fill eric holder's seat as attorney general tomorrow. he'll nominate loretta lynch
6:16 pm
currently district attorney for the city of new york. if nominated she will be the first black attorney general for the united states. >> gains made in the labor market were pretty impressive but there is a catch. for more on that let's go to ali velshi. >> as far as glasses half full and half empty, this was substantially more than half full. more than 129,000 jobs created in october. the unemployment rate dropped to 1.8%. we take a look at the last couple of months. we added 31,000 more jobs for august and september's tallies. we now averaged 229,000 net new jobs every month this year. the 5.8% unemployment rate is 1.4 percentage point drop in the
6:17 pm
past 12 months. two full percentage points in the last two years. and here's the thing. i tell you to ignore the rate, it ticked up slightly as more people joined the labor force. it's not that they got new jobs but they feel confidentiality that there would be new jobs. stay with me. there is a little bit of math. the unemployment rate is the number of people looking for work, who are a part of that--the entire population who could be working. if we had the same number of people in the workforce as there were when president obama took office, the unemployment rate would be more like 8.8%. that's why this is one of the reasons i don't like the unemployment rate. some of the reasons are labor force participation rate is lower because people are
6:18 pm
retiring. a lot of baby boomers, some are getting out, but some of it is that some people are not looking for work. >> what about wages. what kinds of jobs are being created these days? >> i just give you a bright sky and you have to bring in a cloud. wages are stagnant. you and i have discussed this. this is not an obama administration thing or bush administration thing. this is a 40-year problem. but americans are making less the median wage is less than before the recession. wages are up 2% over the past 12 months beating inflation by a little bit but not enough. that continues to be our challenge. we're adding the right number of jobs every month. we're not increasing the pay of americans enough. >> i know you're going to dive into that a little deeper for the program. >> i'm going to introduce you to a woman who had an inside front-row seat to what was going
6:19 pm
on at jp morgan leading up to the financial crisis. she may be the person with enough information to actually end up with criminal charges against some people. she's going to tell her story tonight. it was first told in an exclusive article in "rolling stone." we'll get to the bottom of what happened. not the broad generalities that we know the banks did bad things, but we'll hear specifics. >> and to today no banker has been prosecuted? >> that's correct. >> ali velshi. thanks. >> coming up on al jazeera america the police in mexico saying that the 43 students who have been missing for more than a month were murdered. and they say that they have confessions from the killers. plus, a new frontrunner emerges from a list to be the next attorney general. i think we just told you her name, and there she is. we're back in a moment.
6:20 pm
6:21 pm
>> the supreme court announced today that it will take up another major act to the affordable care act. the subsidies used to help
6:22 pm
people buy health insurance through online exchanges. ed gillispie conceded the race to mark warner. warner has a 16,000 vote lead out of more than 2 million votes cast. that means that republicans will control 52 seats and democrats 44 plus two independents who caucus with them. races in louisiana still have not been decided yet. ukraine is accused of sending dozens of tanks and other weapons into areas of th of ukraine. we have more now from moscow.
6:23 pm
>> moscow's policy is to insist that it has nothing to do with ukraine and russia. there are many people who are observing a significant build up in russian weaponry and hardware over the last few weeks. the rebels in east you crane also insisted they're about to launch a new offensive in taking back the cities of mariopol. and there is a significant increase of russian troop activity on the border of ukraine, and you have the ukrainian border under the orders of petro poroshenko moving to reinforce key cities in the east. none of this looks good still they are paying lip service to that truce, that cease-fire that was agreed in belarus in
6:24 pm
september. but there are many people now who are saying that what we're looking at now is a rapid unraveling of that agreement. >> six years ago u.s. troops moved turbine parts by convoy through taliban terrain. jennifer glasse has more. >> afghanistan's biggest high toe electric plant could soon be generating more electricity. he's. >> no >> the equipment is so old that there are no spare parts. they showed me where they had to
6:25 pm
empractice advise. >> electrical short south trips an alarm here. the power lines travel through areas where government forces and the taliban are fighting. we've very close to the front line and this whole valley here is patrolled by the taliban but they're not likely to enter up the progress here because they want the power, too. >> we're taking this power, and taking it from the people. >> the plant could generate an additional mega watts of power. 4,000 nato soldiers moved the components of the turbine to taliban-held areas in 2008. since then the enormous parts sit rusting near the plant.
6:26 pm
the project now managed by the afghan government rather than through the united states aid program installation is expected soon. local leaders say the upgrade could improve the security situation in the area. >> installing this turbine would be bad for al-qaeda terrorists, but it would be good for our government and the u.s. it would show them that we're working against them. >> there are still many obstacles to overcome. this turbine shaft was restored improvely and needs to be replaced. at this time next year they'll be learning to maintain modern equipment in this power play built at the height of the cold war. jennifer glasse, al jazeera. >> coming up another day of fighting between palestinians and israeli police. we'll talk to an expert about where this latest conflict will go. also in an unlikely nest, drought has killed off trees as
6:27 pm
normally these birds live in. so now they have an trial habitat.
6:28 pm
real reporting that brings you the world. >> this is a pretty dangerous trip. >> security in beirut is tight. >> more reporters. >> they don't have the resources to take the fight to al shabaab.
6:29 pm
>> more bureaus, more stories. >> this is where the typhoon came ashore. giving you a real global perspective like no other can. >> al jazeera, nairobi. >> on the turkey-syria border. >> venezuela. >> beijing. >> kabul. >> hong kong. >> ukraine. >> the artic. real reporting from around the world. this is what we do. al jazeera america. >> we are just learning that three suspects in mexico have confessed to killing dozens of students that have been missing since september. police recovered six bags of unidentified human remains. and are testing the dna. 43 students were last season being taken away by police in a city in southern mexico sparking wide protest. rachel levin, what do we know
6:30 pm
about these confessions? >> with the, it was a chilling press conference where they showed parts of taped confessions from these suspects where they describe in very much cold blood the way that they had these students arrive. they put them in trucks. they shipped them off to a dumpster. several of them were dead upon arrival. then they proceeded to kill the rest of the group. suffocating as much. they line them up on the ground and then they burned them. the fire lasted from midnight to three the next day. and after that they dumped the remains into plastic bags into a river. that's what we know so far. the attorney general said that they are now undergoing dna testing. they've sent those samples off
6:31 pm
to austria, and it will be several days maybe even weeks before we can confirm whether or not these remains are those of the 43 students. >> did the attorney general have anything to say about the rule that the mayor and his wife played in all this? >> well, he wouldn't say whether or not any of this information did come from the mayor. he did say that the police force are implicated in this crime. we know that the police force was on the payroll of the mayor and that he was accepting bribes from this criminal group really what we're seeing here is a terrible case where you have politicians, police working with organized crime possibly to have massacred 43 young students. i remind our viewers these students are the poorest of the poor in mexico. they study at university
6:32 pm
colleges where they train to be teachers in rural communities. so this is a very big tragedy for mexico, and it's really brought a lot of criticism worldwide to what is happening here and the violence that doesn't seem to be going away. >> incompetent and corrupted police authorities. wow, what a mix. rachel for us in mexico city. appreciate it. thank you. tensions are still high in occupied east jerusalem. hundreds ofville security forces were deployed there, but there has been no signs of violence this evening. earlier in the day palestinian protesters clashed with israeli troops on the west bank. let's take a deeper dive in codirector of center for piece culture. good to see you. thank you for your time. >> thank you. >> why is this happening now?
6:33 pm
>> i mean, this is part of a longstanding campaign. >> why this flare-up? >> the official act that started the assassination attempt on jewish activists, that has encouraged right-wing politicians in israel to really seize upon this issue of rights on the temple mount for their own political purposes. at the same time you have muslim groups that feed upon the sensitivity of this side to stoke unrest. i think extremists on both sides have seized upon this. they're being called right wing groups. for more access from the temple mount complex. what's at the occur of it? >> they claim that you should have the right to pray feely.
6:34 pm
what goes behind that is a longstanding believe with right wing jewish groups that they want to rebuild the temple on the first and second ancient temples which is the place which the al aqsa mosque stands. what's changing now is the main treatment of this. >> it is main treatment? >> it is in the option of this issue. by right bing politician who is are now using this because it is gaining public sport. >> will the status quo be changed? >> i don't think so. they recognize this would be explosive and it would potentially ignite the volatile situation, and it could bring in
6:35 pm
jordan and jordan threatened to annul the peace treaty. i think netanyahu himself has reiterated that this would not be happening. and the standard is that jews should not enter the temple mount. >> that is an important point. so make it again. what is the chief rab lie saying? >> the trillion specials that jews cannot enter this area because you cannot identify the holy of holies, the inner sanctuary of the jewish temple is located. and so it could be very holy, and the idea that jews should not defile it, they were traditionally banned from entering this area.
6:36 pm
israel's chief rabbi reiterated that, and the problem is some of these fringe religious groups don't recognize that. they believe that you cannot identify where this very holy area is, and therefore jews should be able to access it. >> can netanyahu control the fringe, and the fringe you're suggest something main treatment? >> i think he'll have trouble controlling some of the right wing politicians but he can certainly control the ministers and his own government. he can threaten them. if he wants to stop it he could stop it. >> he does not want to be give confrontation with his own right wing. >> the codirector of the middle east center.
6:37 pm
>> relationships between the middle east and israel has been conflicted, but there have been simple policy goals. america's commitment went as far to cover up a military assault by israel on the united states. >> it's important to not forget what happened. >> june 8, 1967, the height of the six-day war. the uss liberty, an american spy ship, had just been attacked by israeli torpedo boats while in international waters off egypt,
6:38 pm
seriously damaged, two-thirds of its crew were wounded or dead. >> people are wounded and stunned. my job was to try to get probably 20 or 30 wounded sailors out to the main deck and to the life rafts. i went out and looked myself before i tried to get anyone up, that's when i observed a motor torpedo boat israeli plainly marked with the star of dave machine gunning our life raft. >> whatever the reason for the aggression, it quickly became apparent there would be more to clean up after the attack than the carnage, at issue for president lyndon baines johnson and the damage control of each
6:39 pm
government was an explanation why the israelis fired on the american ship in the first place, and whether the attack was deliberate. the israeli control tower knew for certain that this was an american ship. the same that forces identified that morning and buzzed again during seven differen re r recognizance flights. >> the israelis had attacked, and they thought it was an intelligence ship intercepting israeli and egyptian communication, and this alarmed the u.s. embassy and their leading friends. >> declassifying israeli documents show they were going to threaten president johnson with gross anti-semitism, and that would end his career. following rounds of contentious
6:40 pm
negotiations johnson was never accused of blood libel, and in subsequent investigations of the attack yielded more questions than answers. >> one of the things that bothered me was there was not a nice explanation of what went on. nobody wants to talk about the why. >> paul beba, al jazeera. >> you can see the entire story the day that israel attack america on al jazeera america. after more than a month of political unrest and violence up rising yemen has formed a new government. thousands took to the streets today in the capitol city where armed rebels have been in control since september. they introduced sanctions against rebel leaders against yemen's former president who was ousted in the spring. james bays reports from the united nations. >> the u.n. security council has long been talking about sanctions with regard to yemen.
6:41 pm
well, those sanctions are now in place. they had what they called a silent procedure. all 50 members of the security council considering whether the sanctions should come in to effect. that deadline is now past with silence and that means as there were no objections, the sanctions against the former strong man of yemen, the former president are in place as are sanctions against two houthi leaders. it means that they have travel bans in place. it means that their assets will be freezed by the additional community. these men are recorded as spoilers of the peace process. there is of course a down side to this. they're men with circle influence. they still have influence in circles and across the country. the mouths effectively control the capitol sanaa. it is possible that the people, that the u.s. security council consider the spoilers may continue to policy despite these
6:42 pm
sanctions. >> let's take a look at other stories making headlines across area. >> the man accused of on ducting a philadelphia woman is now in virginia where he faces attempted murder charge in another case. he was extradited last night and accused of kidnapping and raping a teenager last month. charges in the abduction will have to wait. a federal appeals court has cleared the way for gay couples to marry in kansas later next week. same-sex marriage supporters are rallying against a ban on such unions. [ chanting love will win ] >> dozens of people turned out for the demonstration in louisville. yesterday a federal appeals court upheld the guy marriage ban in kentucky and othe three other states. the joedown in the supreme court appears inevitable.

6:44 pm
they're just really appreciative to get this. the great part about this program is that it's not a rebate. it's a grant. >> it is estimated only 20% of oklahoma city residence have a storm shelter or safe room. those can cost thousands of dollars. that's a nice grant. >> roxana, appreciate it. thank you. birds are some of the most vulnerable species to climate change. news' science correspondent has reports on changes. >> reporter: the national autobahn society in a study found this year found that climate change will i am peril nearly half of all u.s. birds within this centuricy. and already birds are having to adapt to human encrotchmen encroachment and impossible

ways. swifts used to inhabit trunks of trees that are now gone from logging. now they inhabitat something made by humans. >> this is the holding place for birders. they come to watch this incredible spectacle where tiny birds will fly in a huge mass. we're here in hopes that we'll catch it on camera. >> rusty discovered this place simply because he knew that the swifts liked industrial chimneys. >> i stopped my car and walked up the road not really expecting much, just checking it out. and they were circling the chimney. i just about had a coronary. >> every day for a month the birds pour out of the top of the chimney and return at the night.
6:46 pm
even though they try to count the thousands of swifts no one knows exactly where they left before this or where they'll sleep next. >> the next known roost side is downtown los angeles. there must be others between, and ultimately they're going to central america. >> why have they chosen these chimneys? >> we suppose perhaps the search in their mind is that of a giant redwood tree. it's a red smokestack, it's hobble and it has qualities where the birds can cling. >> it's amazing to see this vortex of birds, and yet here these birds are, clinging to the sides of the thing. literally clinging to the sides of it to survive. >> while we stood there literally thousands of birds converged into this one hollow space. >> we're looking at this swarm of hundreds of thousands of birds.
6:47 pm
i don't know if this reads on camera but just massive storm of birds is all stuffing and fell down this one chimney. they're going to bundle up together, stay warm overnight and get ready for that next big push to los angeles. >> even though it is making the most of what it has this bird is still in danger. >> they're vulnerable and these antique smokestacks are vulnerable. they're in a state of decay, all of them. these particular tax have been landmarks. the way you preserve a landmark smokestack is to fill it with concrete. >> for one brief moment they have found a stage balance. as it will for so many birds this just that balance could soon be lost. jacob ward, al jazeera, san rafael, california. >> a texas healthcare workers that treated an ebola patient no
6:48 pm
longer have to be monitored. they've been cleared of risk associated with the disease. two nurses did contract ebola, but they've both been released from the hospital. duncan died from the virus. new reports knew that a big manufacturer knew that it's airbags were dangerous but covered it up for years. after the feds announce they shut down one black market website we learn that hundreds of others were also targeted.

6:51 pm
the inside story ray suarez hosts inside story weekdays at 5 eastern only on al jazeera america >> so we're learning that one of the word's largest suppliers of airbags new about a dangerous defect four years before making its first recall. the report from "the new york times" said that t a, kata had been secretly investigating the problem since 2004. but they didn't start warning the public until 2008. that is based on allegations by former employees. the defect has reportedly caused at least four deaths and 139 injuries. the glitch made the steal canister around the airbag to explode in shards and in some cases leak chemicals. we spoke with a senior analyst with kelley blue book, and we ask how many cars are subject to these airbag recall.
6:52 pm
>> we're talking about 8 million cars in the u.s. and i think the word massive is best used to describe the recall. it's a mess because none of those numbers do i have confidence in. >> so carl, this is pretty damming, the manufacturer knew it's airbags could explode but covered it up for four years. >> this is out of the box, isn't it? >> yes, takata is a major supplier. if something were to happen to them it would be very hard to fill that void. and if that's true, and if it is
6:53 pm
true, it will potentially take that company into a serious legal liability that could really devastate it. >> so do automakers. you were talking about the numbers on this and not necessarily trusting all the numbers that have come out so far. do auto makers and consumers now have to go back and look at, think about deaths, injuries that might now be linked to these airbags? >> that's the interesting thing, whenever these crop up, they have to go back and see if there are instances of injuries. that we didn't classify that were related to this problem. people didn't know at the time that that was the true cause of the problem. we're going to see higher numbers than we've already seen, which is 30-plus or 30 or 40 injuries and four deaths related to this already. >> carl went on to say that no
6:54 pm
matter who was at fault, both takata and the major car companies will likely be named in any future class action lawsuit. we told you about a raid that shut down silk road 2.0, that's a website selling black markets items from drugs to guns. hundreds of other dark websites were shut down as well. raids in 17 countries netted 17 arrests, servers supporting 400 sites were also seized. traditional celebration in sout south korea. taking on new significance. the lantern festival is next.
