turkish bases. turkish prime minister ahmed dabatolo aired a familiar rea refrain. >> whoever poses a threat to the borders of the republic of turkey they would be responded to accordingly without any further notice. we have lost one of our army officers and a number of police officers. it is certain that the murderers will be punished without a doubt. >> reporter: but when asked if turkey would open its air bases and stations to u.s. and coalition forces, which would be a major tactical shift the prime minister was not nearly as definitive. >> the incirlik air base matters are a separate issue altogether. when it comes to the matter of safety and security, turkey takes those decisions by itself.
9:04 pm
>> in turkey it's been a week of attacks and anxiety one in which the threat from the islamic state of iraq and the levant has never been felt as keenly. on monday a suicide bomber killed 32 people in suruc. an attack that inspired anger. officials in turkey were quick to blame i.s.i.l. but many in the kurdish population felt the government was to blame. not doing enough to protect kurds, allegation is the government has strongly denied. now even with the ceasefire with the pkk situation seems more fragile than ever. two turkish police officers were killed accused of collaborating with i.s.i.l. by early friday morning turkish authorities were conducting raids in a dozen locations
9:05 pm
rounding up members of the pkk and other groups, over 250 people were arrested. over the course of a few hours i.s.i.l. targets had been destroyed and suspects caught. with so much at stake from outside and inside its borders it seems that more than ever turkey may be in a very difficult position. mohammed jamjun, al jazeera turkey. >> gives turkey the ability to strike i.s.i.l. targets with far better effect, facilitate surveillance missions. rosalind jordan reports. >> reporter: the obama administration is welcoming turkey's decision to allow the u.s. to use bases in turkey, namely the inns incirlik air base.
9:06 pm
right now they are having to fly from much farther distances in the gulf as well as from aircraft carriers outside saudi arabia in order to reach those targets. they say this is going to make the efforts of trying to degrade i.s.i.l. targets an operations much easier. now, what's not clear is what actually happened in the negotiations between the u.s. and the be turkish authorities to allow these air bases to be used. the turkish have wanted to create a buffer zone inside syria in order to protect its territory from i.s.i.l. it's also wanted to establish a no fly zone something which u.s. officials also said would be problematic at best and probably extremely difficult to carry out at worst. and then there's also the question of whether the u.s. is making any inducements or offering any inducements to the
9:07 pm
turkish government because they have apparently backed away from their demand that the fight against i.s.i.l. be expanded into an overall fight against the government of bashar al-assad, someone whom the turkish government considers an enemy of their country. for the moment the obama administration says this is a shoring up of the forces the coalition forces against i.s.i.l. but it may come out in coming days just exactly what the turkish government is getting in exchange for allowing a key military installation to be used in this fight against i.s.i.l. >> rosalyn jordan in washington d.c. defense secretary ash carter made an unannounced visit to iraq's kurdistan district today. a day after he met with u.s. troops in baghdad. carter praised the kurdish effort against i.s.i.l. calling it a model of what the u.s. is trying to achieve.
9:08 pm
while iraq's model has struggled to contain i.s.i.l. kurdish have pushed back the group in their province of iraq. twin car bombs against iraqi forces, killing at least 77. also officials were killed in air strikes overnight. more than 100 iraqi and shia force he were killed in a suicide bombing near fallujah. and iraq's top cleric called grand ayatollah ali al sistani urged attacks against women and children. mark kimmet is a u.s. army brigadier general he joins us
9:09 pm
via skype from baghdad. let's start with turkey. how significant is it that the turks are finally conducting their own bombing missions? >> i think it's very important for quite some time the u.s. has been concerned about not only turkey's action he to at least not stop i.s.i.l. but stop i.s.i.l. from operating in that area, use of bases and bringing in turkey with their very, very experienced pilots gives us a better platform to operate from than simply the bases we have been operating from. much closer to syria and northern iraq. >> critical of people not flowing through intoob syria to join i.s.i.l. and having its forces watch from across the border as i.s.i.l. attacked
9:10 pm
kobani. why do you think they're finally acting now? >> well, i think first thing is that they did not act prior to this, because they always saw assad as the larger threat. they saw i.s.i.s. as a symptom but assad was the disease. i.s.i.s. was a creation, reacting to assad. and they were always trying, they the turks were always trying to get the united states and others to realize that i.s.i.s. isn't the probe that assad is the problem. but -- isn't the problem assad is the problem. after we saw the attack in suruc where 32 turks were killed, and there is a belief that there is an internal threat from i.s.i.s that be i.s.i.s. may be a problem from the other side of the border and now a problem within their own borders and an be beand an existential threat.
9:11 pm
i think what turkey is finally realizing is this policy they had of assad first i.s.i.s. second has now got to be reversed. they have got to go against i.s.i.s. first and worry about assad second. >> one of their concerns for the turks, their own kurdish opposition, allowing i.s.i.l. to fight kurds in syria and iraq looking at i.s.i.l. as an enemy of my enemy situation but they bombed some pkk kurdish positions in northern iraq. it's a confusing and complicated situation there. >> again, the problem is that the kurdish fighters who have been fighting i.s.i.s. have been complaining for quite some time that turkey is allowing more and more i.s.i.s. fighters to flow
9:12 pm
inside to kill kurdish fighters and as a result they had to deal with that problem themselves. they had to appease the kurdish government out of erbil but killing their own people. because of the very large kurdish population inside turkey was not quite happy to see the number of kurds that were being killed by i.s.i.s. they finally had to do something against i.s.i.s. and suruc provided the catalyst for that action. >> you are in iraq, defense secretary ash carter have ited this week. how much progress are iraqi forces make right now especially in anbar province trying to retake it? >> well, we're starting to see the first of the coalition trained iraqi forces being introduced into the fight around ramadi and habanea. it's still too early to say there's forward progress.
9:13 pm
they're in the shaping phase to retake ramadi. iraqi forces have not at least given up ground, we have to wait a few more weeks before we see steady progress but the shaping process the preparation of the battlefield going on right now by both the turkish military -- consume the iraqi military iraqi police and the popular mobilization forces, they seem to get the chess piece necessary place and we hope progress to be made in the town of ramadi itself. >> general mark kimmet glad to have you with us especially in the early morning hours. >> sure. >> two have been arrested on terrorism charges on belgium. the pair spend years in gitmo former detainees were arreston thursday suspect ed of

9:18 pm
>> in context tonight president obama's historic trip to kenya. it's his first visit to his father's home land since he was elected. while the president will attend an economic summit he will also discuss with his family members. >> first sitting u.s. president ever to visit kenya. more than that, barack obama in the eyes of kenyans is finally coming home. strictly speaking it's his father's home land but in the euphoric atmosphere here most kenyans feel america's first black president is like no other politician on earth. they relate to him. first a handshake for kenya's president uhuru kenyatta. the first president to be
9:19 pm
charged at the icc in the hague but then cleared. this was nairobi's skyline as u.s. forces moved in. the americans had been monitoring all air space in kenya along with neighboring somalia. it may not seem like it with last minute makeovers but kenya is experiencing a security operation like no other. any personal fulfillment president obama may have in being here will be tinged with a time line of human loss in kenya though. from al qaeda's 1998 bombing of the u.s. embassy in nairobi in which 200 kenyans and 12 americans died, the al shabaab attack ton onto westgate shopping mall to al shabaab's be attack on the garissa university only a few months ago. >> we need more participation of the u.s. more training of our

special forces by the u.s. >> in the lead up to the visit westgate mall has reopened. no memorials to the dead here. this is intended to be a defiant move to show normality. but dispiets despite some improvements to security, kenyans are i still skeptical. they will be looking to a u.s. president with kenyan roots for help. he has said he will speak bluntly to kenyan's politicians. he won't be traveling to kegelo, the west kenyan village where his father was born. his half sister alma greeted him at the airport and got in the back of his limousine to drive out. andrew simmons, al jazeera

9:22 pm
massacre of 148 people at garissa university this past april. but the response by kenya's security services including alleged extra judicial killings harassment and detention of muslims is viewed by many as counterproductive to regional security. >> it's really important for kenyan government to realize that the radicalization is not only happening in somalia but is hang also in kenya. and that there is another approach needed, one that engages more with the communities that are most at risk of being radicalized. >> reporter: concerns over human rights abuses, crack downs on media and civil society prompted writing to president obama and urging him to put these at the forefront of his discussions. bomb said he would address them candidly stressing good governance as the basis of economic growth on a continent
9:23 pm
that boasts many of the fastest growing economies on the planet and which kenya is emerging as a key gateway. >> it is an engine of the east african community creating a common market that is large enough in scale to attract major interests in direct investment in trade. >> reporter: and in the interest of a president keen to unlock the potential of a country and a continent his forefathers called home. patricia sabga, al jazeera. >> while in kenya the president says he will also talk about lgbt rights. many african countries have laws against homosexuality. in kenya it's punishable with time in prison. he told the bbc he still plans to bring up the issue. be u.s. ambassador to nigeria and sowrveg. south africa.
9:24 pm
how important is this trip? >> the trip is important because africa has been looking for this high level visible attention from the obama administration. a lot of things have been going on, it's been a very strong policy in africa under the obama administration. in security and democracy and anti-aids programs, et cetera. but they had expected this high visibility and the president's been consumed with other issues. so this trip is very important to reassure africa that africa is a high priority for this administration. >> and china has made major inroads in africa. so by going over there with a large contingent of business people, is the president sending a clear message? >> i think economics have become
9:25 pm
an increasingly important part of of the administration's approach. you'll note in the u.s. africas summit last month there was a great deal of attention on investment possibilities and power africa et cetera, so that's to take advantage of the fact that as your report said, african countries have been growing faster than many other countries in the world. but another facet of the u.s. administration's concern has been africa's growing importance in security issues. not only al shabaab but al qaeda in the magreb, the repercussions of libya and egypt so that security now also ranks very high in the administration's priorities on the continent. and kenya and ethiopia are very important in this regard. >> right because you do have al qaeda in the magreb, you have al
9:26 pm
shabaab in somalia which has carried out these terrible attacks in kenya you have boko haram in nigeria, also attacking chad cameroon niger. the new nigerian president muhammadu buhari just visited be america. but it's aiding and abetting nigeria by not allowing the weapons to fight the group is that security an overwhelming one? >> that visit went extremely well. he was very, very pleased with the visit. there was one unfortunate section in his speech i think written by someone else, raising the old issue of support to the nigerian military. we are legitimately, the united states legitimately concerned about some of the human rights violations of the nigerian security forces. and i would point out that president buhari one of the
9:27 pm
first things he has done has been to replace the leaders of all three major services as well as name a new national security advisor. so i think that comment does not reflect the overall visit. i was three at the speech and interviewed him while he was there and i know he came away very pleased. >> now without security in the region though, is subshoornl africasubsaharanafrica going to be able to attract the kind of investment the area needs and wants? there you've pointed out some, we still have a terrible terrible conflict in south sudan, we have foreign investment opportunities that's true in tanzania mozambique, and i think you'll see more attention to nigeria with a very
9:28 pm
successful democratic election. so i think still the economic opportunities on the continent are going to attract investment, just as they are from china and india and brazil. and this global entrepreneurial summit that the president will host in kenya co--host will again put a spotlight on those opportunities. >> ambassador princeton lyman always good to get your insights. thank you. >> my pleasure, thank you. >> what could become the world's first licensed malaria vaccine passes a hurdle. coming up, what protection it could give to the nearly 3 billion at risk of contracting the disease. and clean energy debate, those who want to save the country's picturesque landscapes.

9:33 pm
>> considerably less effective on children up to the age of five months. that hasn't stopped the european agent giving the vac een the green light. this means the world health organization can now look at how effective it is and how it can be used alongside other tools. before it can be rolled out governments will need to give it approval and funding will also need to be found. it's believed a course of the vaccine could cost about $5 per child. >> news of the new vaccine is being tblomed welcomed in ghana. ama boatang reports. >> suffering from malaria. she has been admitto the

hospital in accra. >> if malaria is an important reason for our admission then it's a disease area we can look at. >> reporter: most of the families here are not aware of the medical developments in the fight against malaria that may one day benefit them. but ghanan authorities welcome the vaccine developed by glaxo glaxosmithkline. >> we know this person said there's so more work to be done but this is a beginning so it's a first good step. >> reporter: the vaccine was tested in 11 different countries
9:35 pm
across west africa, including malawi and ghana. this is peak season for moorl malaria. they have seen 60 case he. the world health organization has to review the vaccine before making its policy recommendations later this year. still more questions to be answered. >> this vaccine starting to show an effect for the first time. lot of questions, how much is it going to cost, how is it going to be delivered and how long will it last. >> her condition is improving but be doctors say current malaria prevention efforts are not effective enough. that's why researchers say this vaccine is an important development. al jazeera accra. >> 2013 they show that case of
9:36 pm
malaria were diagnosed in 97 countries worldwide, in the past 15 years advances in prevention and treatment have occurred somewhat but 3.3 billion people remain at risk of contracting malaria. 1.2 billion are considered at high risk. 198 million cases of malaria were diagnosed worldwide 97% of those confirmed cases were in africa. the virus killed 584,000 people across the world in 2013, of those deaths about 437,000 were african children under the age of 5. joshua bloomen bloomenfeld is the executive director of moorl no more. i wasmalaria no more. this break through could save an incredible amount of lives. >> thank you so much for having me and you're absolutely right
9:37 pm
malaria is one of the oldest deadliest diseases in human history and it affects millions of people around the world the biggest group is children under five and pregnant women, it is an exciting development one tool in the tool box we're going to need to eradicate the disease. >> while any tool is welcome why is this vaccine only 30% effective? >> this is a great question, i think there is the jury is still out on some of the efficacy some of the clinical trials need to be done in greater detail and in more countries. the reality is any intervention that we use is going to have to be paired with other intervention. bed nets in addition to vaccine and indoor spraying and all of these interventions together and innovations are going to help us eradicate the disease and what has led to such dramatic
9:38 pm
progress that has been made. that is a staggering success. >> it is. but why has it been so hard to develop a vaccine against malaria? given the staggering number of victims you would think finding some way to stop it would be a top priority in the world of research and development. >> it's an excellent question. gsk and others have put a lot of money into this vaccine and certainly we need lot of research dollars. one of the key problems of course is people who need malaria medicines don't have the ability to pay. that's why the u.s. government and others aids foundation play such a critical role in providing that gap to provide the gap in the failure. >> practical too expensive for kind of mass use you need it
9:39 pm
for. >> so it's a great question. one of the interesting questions about malaria medicine right now is it's largely effective and actually relatively inexpensive all things considered. the key challenge we have the the the dosage is required to be taken over three days. the first day most patients actually feel a lot better and they wind up not taking the rest of the medicine and saving it because it's costly for them. the problem is if we could get a single dose cure, where you would take one pill and that would effectively clear your body of the parasite, you would be healed, but it is important to note that the medicine that we have today that a lot of companies have invested in including note and file novartis. >> despite the fact that there has been resistance to the drugs
9:40 pm
which have made them a little less effective. why after a half a century of major malarial defense why has it been so hard to fight this disease? >> it's such an excellent question. and the reality is we don't really know. what we do know is that malaria is the oldest deadliest disease in human history. it's essentially been around since humans have been recording history and some countries were able to eradicate it using ddt for instance, the united states eradicated it. the centers for disease control was founded in atlanta to eradicate malaria in the united states. there are times in the history that we have come close to eradicate the disease but if we take our foot off the gas malaria will come back. it is a really, really zedly
9:41 pm
disease that is able to adapt. what gets us out of bed in the morning is this generation has the opportunity to end the disease. we can stop malaria and eradicate it from the planet and ensure that no one has to die from malaria. it will take time and money and political will but we know how to do it. >> thank you for joining us tonight. nigeria hit a major milestone, celebrating a year without the single case of polio. 20 years ago it had the highest rate. the world health organization says it will now take nigeria off the lest of polio endemic countries, if lab tests remain negative in the next few weeks. nigeria is the last african country on that list. burundi's president has won the contest was boycotted by the international community
