5:05 pm
attacks took part before a summit involving the e.u., the european union leaders, as well as the turkish leadership over the syrian migration crisis. i suspect the group carrying out the attack was seeking maximum publicity not just to turkey, but to the outside world to declare turkey an insecure and unstable place. >> turkey is fighting a war on two fronts, has it bitten off more than it can choose. >> turkey is faces multiple changes with the p.k.k. workers party, which i suspect carried out the attack. also, turkey now has to deal with northern syria, with the instability there, where the kurdish fighters that now control half the turkish-syrian
5:06 pm
boarder, as well as hostile relations with iran, russia and iraq. >> do you think people will be asking questions about how this attack could have happened where it did, in the heart of the capital, and already the threat level was at its maximum. will questions be asked. >> there'll be questions about security, not just the fact but one attack, two attacks, three attacks have taken place in ankara that involved double digit. in some case triple digit in terms of victims. serious questions will be asked and must be asked. >> how much wiggle room does turkish politicians have in terms of foreign policy at the moment. given they have decided to fight the war on two fronts. >> there's little debate.
5:07 pm
turkey's recep tayyip erdogan is the main figure, he determines policy, and has a lot of support for his direction he's taking the country. >> interesting. recep tayyip erdogan's platform was about stability and security, if you look at the snippets of attacks that we have seen, that's not the picture that has been created. >> i think this president recep tayyip erdogan, and the turkish government should clearly examine what is going on in turkey, instability that is not serving turkey's interests, and is harming the economy quite significantly, that the turkish government needs to take a 180 degree terms in policies to bring back security and stability to the country
5:08 pm
acknowledge has claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on a beach resort in ivory coast. the government stormed a hotel which is a popular weekend destination for foreigners and ivorians. the president says 14 civilians and two soldiers have been killed and the government said security killed six armed men who it said attacked three hotels. we were given this update any the ivory coast insupport minister. >> translation: threes hotels were attacked in the early afternoon. defense and security intervened, neutralizing the terrorists. a detailed will be released in the next few hours
5:09 pm
this is the third attack on a place popular with tourists. in november gunmen stormed the radisson hotel, shooting guests in the lobby, and going room to room. 20 died, mostly foreigners. gunmen attacked a hotel. opposite the capital, killing 30 people. >> well, olivier joins us in the studio to talk about the attack. he's a security and risk consultant. warm welcome to the programme. did you see this coming, this attack? >> very much so. since january the french have been warning ivory coast and senegal that they were on the look out for perpetrated attacks in their country, specifically against foreigners, and specifically against beaches. >> so akim, what is their modus operandi.
5:10 pm
what is the message they want the attack to say? >> merely to be front and center. the competition between islamic state and others has been getting the upper hand. as mentioned, three attacks in four months, putting al-qaeda and the islamic programme back on the map, targetting hotels, because they have seen what happened after islamic state pulled off attacks. basically crippling the economy of the country. >> how difficult is it. in some of these places that we are talking about, where security services are already under pressure and are having to dill with dispirit -- to deal with dispirit groups that may have designs on carrying out an attack. how difficult is it. >> it's difficult in terms of means and deciding the
5:11 pm
importance of the intel is vital. the fact that they had 2 months to prepare for an attack is important na if you have landmarks and places that you think are potential targets for terrorists, especially with expats, you should upsecurity. one of our correspondents earlier said in ivory coast, particularly, the economy has taken a turn for the better, things are more peaceful, and people were shocked the attack happened. from what you are saying, there's plenty of intel that in prominent places, of which this is one, there was a decent chance something like this would happen. >> unfortunately it's human nature to say it happens to others. the fact that ivory coast, and senegal, which might be next,
5:12 pm
are countries that have been doing better on the economy and they are more of a target because an attack like this could have a negative impact on the economy. >> so would you say is this a pattern, or what you would expect to see, looking into the crystal ball, is this what you expect to happen going forward, as the services grapple with getting the right intel. >> hotels are shaft targets. in order to get media exposure they have to attack - three attacks, three hotels, ex-pats and ex-french colonies has to be underlined. they have the french as air main enemy. >> thank you or joining us with your thoughts.
5:13 pm
thank you. french investigators called the sweeping changes to rules surrounding the medical confidentiality of pilots. it comes after a french inquiry into last year's germanwings crash. 149 were killed after a pilot deliberately flew his pilot into a mountain. in a report it said neither the co-pilot nor others alerted aviation authorities about his mental health issues. the investigation urged the world health organisation and european commission to draw up clear rules to oblige doctors to inform authorities when a patient's health is likely to affect public. and called patients and psychiatric problems, being
5:14 pm
declared fit to fly no one could have survived what happened on march 24th, 2015. germanwings flight 9525 disintegrated on impact. the debris, the bodies, spread across two square kilometres of alpine hillside. the village of laverna is nearest to the site. there's a stone memorial to the victims. the haunting question is whether the tragedy could have been avoided in the first place. andre alubeck had problems for years. but his doctor never reported it. the french investigation team urged global change in regulations. >> we recommend clearer rules to provide health care providers to
5:15 pm
inform authorities when a patient's heath is likely to impact public safety. >> reporter: there's 11 recommendations, including a call for medical checks to be made every threw or six months or annually. >> pilots with depression would not necessarily be barred from flying, but would be more supported. victim's relatives want the law changed. >> it wasn't only an accident. it was a collapse where the safety did not work. it was proven that the pilot was ill, and never should have sat in the cockpit. >> the family's lawyers are determined to sue germanwings lufthansa in german courts. >> translation: lufthansa is withholding, refusing to negotiate with american lawyers. more than 80 families got
5:16 pm
together and must litigate. it is ipp comprehensible. >> reporter: the question now, how far and how quickly will the recommendations be adopted joining us via skype is professor rob mcpore working in the airline industry and is an honorary consultant to the british air force. welcome to the programme. how has the report changed what we already know. >> there were, nvk, two reports. there was one that came after the crash, and that alerted us to the fact that it was a pilot suicide. this second report and final report which was issued today really highlights and gives us backhand to the medical continue of the pilot. and helps us to really understand all of the different forms of treatment he'd been
5:17 pm
involved in, different professionals that he engaged with, and so on. it point to the fact that here was somebody that had a known psychiatric disorder, but for whatever reason the system failed in that he was not prevented from fly, which clearly he should have been. >> lots of people, the big question is why didn't the relevant professionals tell the airlines that this was one suffering from an illness. >> i think highlights undergo a large number of checks. medical checks as part of the licensing permissions. one of the issues is that they can seek to consult with doctors and specialists outside of the medical system. as part of the check they'll have to see a specialist doctor, qualified in aeromedical medicine. obviously this pilot accessed both systems, but he didn't
5:18 pm
allow them to join up with one another. in was partly his own fault, and i am sure what he didn't want to happen, he did not get that position. i think more worryingly doctors that did treat him didn't feel it necessary, or felt inhibited because of hippocratic oath, from convoying the information to the aviation regulatory authority, or the employer to prevent him from flying. >> sorry to interrupt you there, professor, i just wonder from your experience, what is it like to be a commercial airline pilot. i'm imagining it's unusual, just as in any profession, for a pilot to suffer depression. will things have to change in the future on the back of the report, that will have to be gentle guidelines to make sure those people that have issues, still continue in their jobs.
5:19 pm
>> absolutely. the vast majority of pilots are robust people, they self-select into the occupation, you don't just stumble into being a pilot. it takes years of training, and every time a pilot steps on to the flight deck they are checked out by the person next to them, the dispatcher and other crew members. they are subjected to a lot of surveillance. the job of the pilot these days is stressful. a number are under pressure, financial pressure, they may be paying for string and have to repay this, which is what this pilot had to do over a period of time, and the conditions may very, if you are a short hall pilot, and put up in a hotel close to an airport. you may not get good sleep, and you may have to fly 3-4:00am the next day. it is quite a demanding life.
5:20 pm
but, as we say, people who work in this area choose to do this. i think the issues in the future will be a need to make sure that pilots feel better looked after. and after all, be very minor transient problems that everybody will experience, low moods, anxiety, relationship problems and so on, these are things that are manageable and treatable in almost every pilot we see, that is the case on a return to work. it is in the rare and exceptional cases that confidentiality may need to be broken to protect the public. >> professor joining me on skype. thank you for joining us. thank you now, regional elections have been held in germany, and german chancellor angela merkel's conservatives lost in two out of three votes. state contests were heard. sunday's vote was seen as a big
5:21 pm
fest for merkel with the ipp door policy. let's go live to dominik. he's at the cbu headquarters, in the state capital. hi there, what has happened, so we have the voting results as they are? >> the stand out result is the populist party, they persuaded, perhaps, one in four of all the voters in this case to cast their ballot. to a party which opposes the refugee policy of the coalition government federally, which called for is to be changed. radical alternatives to the policy of angela merkel, and her government. they performed well in the western states, where they were
5:22 pm
able to secure double digit services in the state. the c.d.u. did not do well. they were not in government in the two states. the social democrats and the greens were in coalition in both of those states. they were not states that the c.d.u. - which was hoping to do well there, but in the event has underperformed from their perspective, and failed to become the largest party in those two states. the c.d.u. is the largest party in this state. and it is likely that the state premier here now, who is from the c.d.u., will continue to be in post following the election. >> what does it mean for germany's political perspective. politically now, there were be meetings between the groups that have been elected in the three states, and there'll be problems
5:23 pm
in trying to form coalition governments. coalition is the way the government works, with the proportional representation system that it has. we know that the main parties said clearly they will not negotiate. given the fact that here in this state, it's projected that they'll win something like 34 seats out of 120, well, that makes it difficult for the other parties to try to find binding majorities to be able to form coalitions, to have a government that will last for five years, and also there's the question of what it means for the refugee policy generally, given the fact that here, as i say in the one state, that a quarter of voters would do that. it's worth making the point that in every state three-quarters of the electors voted for parties who are pro refugees, pro the asylum seekers policy of the asylum seekers government.
5:24 pm
clearly both sides will be looking to claim some sort of support from these results, but it's obvious that the group are perhaps the happiest party given what has happened today. >> dominik live. egypt's justice minister has been sacked by the prime minister following outrage over remarks he made by prophet muhammad. he was criticized after a television interview where he was asked if he'd gaol journalists and he replied he'd arrest someone even if it was the prophet himself. earlier he was condemned by human right watch when he appeared to agree with the killing of muslim brotherhood supporters. i'm joined by a senior lecturer in middle east politics at the university of exeter. thank you for being with us. so this comment has basically
5:25 pm
stirred up a hornet's nest, hasn't it. tell us about the man behind the comment, and why people are enraged. it's no stranger to controversy, and it's centring he was sacked because of that comment, but previous comment where the fire in his heart will not be stopped unless he skills 10,000 protesters. he was advocating the killing of half a million, that went without condemn nation except for human rights watch. he has no stranger to controversy, he's infamous about saying that they are the masters, meaning the people in the judicial system, in the security and military institutions, and the rest are the slaves. there was a famous comment by him. and the way that he was managing the justice ministry was very much in that sense, the supportity complex, the idea that he had a personal law he
5:26 pm
was lobbying for was about empowering the sons of the judges, even if they had a low grade in law school, they'd be appointed as judges and within the judicial system of egypt. whereas the ones that don't have the positives as judges or officers, they will not get the same privilege. so he was very much manipulating the institution such that it has its own superiority, such as specific in it. and remains in power. and referred to himself at one point as the leader of the counterrevolution in the judicial system. >> no problem with confidence. >> what about the standing of the government in egypt. i'm thinking for an every day person. do they have confident that this government will take the country, the economy forward, and individuals making comments like that. the answer may be no? >> it's not the only one in the
5:27 pm
regime. you have figures were the military establishment, from the security establishment. it went through about corruption levels. boasting about depression. so the regime is hawkish in that direction. it came after the mubarak regime, and the main lesson is that we need to be more repressive. if that is the case, you can expect the figures to come out of it. so far there's no national accountability of the most of the forces within the military, the judicial systems are sidelined, marginalized or weakened. we have famous cases where the head of the judges club was not elected. the majority of the judges voted for a character like that. it tells you a lot about how deeply rooted is the corruption
5:28 pm
and tolerance in these institutions. and that is what forms the regime. they were bolstered by security. >> that conditions. we'll see more and more polarization on the ground, a younger generation, and attempts to turn and push the regime into a democratic process again. >> fascinating. thank you for joining us with your point of view ahead on al jazeera - demands to get protesters out. that's another one of donald trump's rallies interrupted. >> why world renowned festival of culture in the u.s. is missing a beat with long-term locals. >> and in sport. french open champion stanislaw wawrinka cruises into the next round at indian wells. n wells.

5:33 pm
he told reporters the cessation of hostilities in place for over two weeks had reduced violence, one side was not fully complying. >> the syrian people strongly support the cessation of hostilities because it made their lives better. to date, the single biggest violator of that, by allegation, is the bashar al-assad regime. >> he hit out at the syrian deputy prime minister, who at a news conference in damascus said there could be no negotiation about the role of president bashar al-assad. >> a witness, the comments made yesterday by the foreign minister in syria, clearly trying to disrupt the process. clearly trying to send a message of deterrence to others. >> reporter: his comments clearly aimed as support for the main opposition box, the main
5:34 pm
negotiating committee, whose members arrived for the talks. >> we want to see an end to the bloodshed in syria. we hope that we see a serious partner. >> reporter: what is different about the talks is the u.n. special envoy stefan de-mistura says he is going to get to the substantive issues, who will be in a new transitional government, taking syria towards new elections, that, of course, takes us to the key issue of president bashar al-assad, and those around him. on that it seems now no one is prepared to compromise. >> well, after five years of war, businesses in corn turkey are reporting a booming trade in syria. hundreds have sprung up to ship food across the boarder. >> reporter: as you drive to the
5:35 pm
syrian boarder, the lines of trucks tell a story, almost all are carrying food, rice, wheat, pastor and other durables, coming from italy. there was so many, they had to close the boarder to process those through. >> i'm carry, chickpeas. it's going to syria, other times it's flour or baby nappies. we make no profit, just the cost of the petrol. >> reporter: 50km up the road this is one of four huge industrial zones inside the sprawl. almost every building is a warehouse this, is wheat, from the capital. they are vast, reflecting the huge market which opened up in the war zone down the road. aleppo or happ app is 140 -- hall app is 140 kilometres away. figures show trade is at prewar
5:36 pm
levels. the war has been good for business. there's more than 600 syrian companies here, ordering food and other things from all over turkey, move it through gazianstep and on to the boarder, and if you ask what happens to it when it crosses to syria, you can't get an answer. >> once crossing the boarder, it is transferred to syrian trucks and could end up with i.s.i.s., some to aid agencies, sol privately. in madaya, outside places, where people were starving, the trade, according to the business leaders, offers a life line. >> yes, i do think the aid and foot items do avert a bigger crisis. if people are fighting, they'll come to the boarder, if they are starving the syrian truck drivers
5:37 pm
transporting the food faces dangers. this convoy was attacked from the air by a russian fighter plane on the assumption it was carrying weapons. as the wore enters a sixth year, people are making money keeping people from hunger 22 people have been killed in fighting between security forces. yemeni officials say the fighting happened in the port city of aden. fighting broke out when the government forces try to free some in the city. aiden was retaken by yemeni forces in july, backed by the saudi-led coalition. but some groups occupy parts of it. 17 of the dead are suspected al-qaeda fighters hundreds of thousands of people have taken to the streets
5:38 pm
of brazil to call for the resignation of president dilma rousseff, she is embroiled in a corruption scandal and is unpopular because of the country's faltering economy. we go to one of the largest demonstrations. >> organizers are estimating that millions are turning out across brazil to call for the impeachment of dilma rousseff. this is the largest demonstration against the administration since the corruption scandal broke out two years ago. that has to deal with allies and members of government receiving a kickback and bribe in relation to state-owned oil company paris metro bass. people say they are tired of being lied to, and tired of the terrible state the economy is in. and feels that dilma rousseff does not have the ability to lead them out of it. many saying they want a change of government as soon as
5:39 pm
possible. other members of the ruling coalition were waiting to see how big the turn out would be before making a decision to breakaway from the government. it could turn the side against president dilma rousseff. >> now, protesters interrupted the latest rally of donald trump. the republican front-runner in the u.s. election. speaking in blooming tonne in illinois, planning to send rallies to ohio. residential hopeless were to call off on friday when brawls broke out from protesters. they tried to claim on stage that the real estate mogul. >> speaking at a democratic fundraiser in dallas, obama criticized the candidates. instead of fighting among themselves, they should do more for the american people.

>> what the folks running for office should be focused on is how it make it better. not insults and schoolyard talks, and manufacturing facts. not divisiveness along the lines of race or faith. certainly not violence against other americans, or excluding them. we are a better country than that. >> north korea has denied stepping up cyber attacks against south korea, which said it hacked the mobile phones much 40 security officials. claims come amid escalating tension with the neighbours, as they engage in a military provision with the u.s. a powerful aircraft carrier docked for the exercises. bribe is there, and send us this update. >> nothing does power protection
5:41 pm
like the aircraft carrier. the battle group is evidence of that, a floating fortress city of 5,000 personnel. and bristling with firepower. inclusion in the exercise in korean waters has been planned for months. and has nothing to do with current tensions. the visit coincides with relations being as tense as they can be. it is a timely reminder of the type of power america can deploy, if it has to. >> and our focus is on deterrence. we are trying to deter provocative accounts an in the presence of the strike group is part of that deterrence. >> the visit sends a message beyond the korean peninsula to china. to get here the vessel sales through the south china seas, in line with the u.s. policy of pivoting resources to asia, and
5:42 pm
in doing so, meeting the military expansions in the region. much has been said in the last couple of years about china acquiring the first aircraft carrier, joining an exclusive club of nations. this is a reminder from america, this being one of who is president at the club. >> moroccans are at the treats. the secretary-general's comments, it referred to the moroccan relation to the area as an occupation. spain withdrew in 1975. the u.n. has been pushing for a referendum on independence. the area has been subject to a long dispute between the indigenous people and the moroccan authority. >> now, a week-long campaign started ahead of a constitutional referendum in the west african nation of senegal.
5:43 pm
there's a 15 point reform plan. shortening the presidential term from 7-5 years. criticism was drawn when the end date was given a film festival is taking place in austin texas. the south by south-west festival, worth 1.6 billion. as a result the city is growing rapidly. as reynolds reports, long term residence are paying the heavy price. >> thompson said god gave him a gift of music. over the decades, he played with dozens of austin blues and jazz bands. >> we had musicians all over the place, we used to sit on the corner. everyone would get together. you'd have vocal groups and
5:44 pm
bands playing all around town. that's how it started. >> a rich musical culture flourished in black neighbourhoods, and that music was a big part of the south by south-west music festival when it launched 30 years ago. south by south-west grew into one of the hottest event. commercialized. corporate and expensive. all inclusive passes for music and films cost more than 1800 each. the festival bolstered the carefully cultivated image as an ultra cool hipster haven, and wealthy newcomers flocked here to live. community activists say that devastated neighbourhoods. in east austin, new houses, coffee shops and other schools sprouted. property taxes soared and older residents can't afford to stay people that live at east
5:45 pm
austin say the changes happened so fast, they hard by recognise the place. lisa works on cultural matters. >> it's cultural displacement and we take a step further saying what happened is cultural genocide. as you go through the neighbourhood. remnants are few, and they'd be the churches and a couple of barber shops. other than that, everything is gone. >> the barber shop. it's a place where african-american men socialise. much of the talk these days is about change. >> now you see a now ethnicity come in, and new houses coming up. it's changed dramatically. >> ronny jackson has barbered here for 16 years. >> for taxes to push out grandparents, and nannas that have been here for years and years, i don't think that's right.
5:46 pm
thompson played at south by south-west. now the festival is dominated by acts in london and los angeles. >> i played with most of the best that came out of austin, i don't know any of them benefitted by south by south-west. >> south by south-west boosted austin's image as a capital of cool, and helped to displace the people whose god-given talents made it possible to begin with. >> ahead here on al jazeera - taking the politics out of art. we visit an exhibition with a difference. a treat for a tacher. why this woman has won a million dollars in sport we note the identity of this season's six nation's champions, interestingly - they got a little help from their

5:51 pm
weiwei is not present here. >> the art speaks of a generation of chinese exploring the topics of change and convergence. upbringing, upheaval, and experimenting with eastern and western style, forming a unique brand of art and beauty with all the day's sports news, it's over to robin. >> good to see you. 17 february, 2013, it feels like a lifetime ago. that was the last time arsenal lost an f.a. cup tie. the winners for the past two years coming from watford. danny welbeck scored late for the gunners, too little, too late. watford into the semifinal draw. >> the f.a. cup comes to an end in a very sad way.
5:52 pm
i don't think we deserve to lose this game. we have to look at the first goal. the second goal was a fantastic shot. and i failed that. it was a game, we have defended the way for changes on the break. few ahead. as long as we didn't win the first goal, we kept belief. >> manchester united and istanbul have to do it again. both scorers from france. a free kick opening the scoring for west ham. grabbing the equalizer with 7 minutes left of the game. >> the first 50 minutes of west ham. they were the better team. they have created a few chances in in time. after the first 50 minutes we are coming back in the match.

not the biggest chances. >> with the f.a. cup, there was a game in the premier league, close the gap on leaders. leicester two coins. coming to give them victory over aston villa. leicester playing newcastle. to the spanish league, villa real, who are fourth, were beaten 4-2. third place, they didn't get the result they wanted. sergio aguero, gina zone's -- zinedine's side ahead before the home side equalized. now 4 point with atletico. who are second. paris st. germain secured a lead in spectacular fashion, thrashing and scoring four
5:54 pm
