amazing business opportunities especially for nation's young adults. plus, world leaders meet this week to ponder the fate of i.s.i.l. looking for new ways to crush the armed group as it rises in libya. the topic of tonight's the week ahead. we begin with the count down in new hampshire. we are just two days away from the nation's first presidential primary and donald trump appears to be on the verge of victory. several polls out today show him enjoying at least a 15 point lead. for democrats, bernie sanders remains way ahead of hillary clinton. mike viqueria is on the campaign trail in manchester. >> good evening, randall, on the republican side things seem to be up for grabs.
11:02 pm
while donald trump is nominally leading the polls, over the challenger, plooub marco rubio,s are notoriously late in deciding. donald trump underperformed in iowa, when you compare the precaucus polls. many are expecting the same thing ohappen here in new hampshire. meanwhile, marco rubio is emerging as the establishment candidate, and as such he is drawing the fire of many of his rivals. croichts wenchris christie wents being robotic, that his replies are repeated over and over and over again. rubio went after that. >> i'm going to say it again. the reason why these things are in trouble is because barack obama is the first president at
11:03 pm
least in my lifetime that wants to change the country. change the country. not fix it, not fix its problems. he wants to make it a different kind of country. >> and as for the democratic race hillary clinton doing something very unusual just two days before the voting starts in the primary in new hampshire, going you outside the state to flint michigan to take up the cause for the lead pipes of the city. many people putting the problem at the feet of the republican governor, saying it was ignored for a long time, there was a charge ever racism, in that flint is a majority-minority city in the heart of michigan. hillary clinton went to flint to carry her case there. she'll be back in new hampshire to campaign. meanwhile, bernie sanders has continued to hammer hillary
11:04 pm
clinton over her ties to wall street. >> it's a fact whether in the last reporting period her superpac received $25 million and 15 million of it came from wall street, what is the smear? athat is the faculty. at the very top of my list of goals that i want to accomplish as president of the united states is overturning this disastrous dissention united supreme court decision. democracy does not mean that billionaires should be able to buy elections. >> and instead of hillary clinton, we had former president bill clinton campaigning for his wife today. citing polls saying bernie sanders from vermont is expected to win, hillary clinton will claim a victory if she comes within shouting distance of bernie sanders. hillary clinton and her campaign are looking forward to the next state in nive wher nevada and ih
11:05 pm
carolina, just after that. >> mike viqueria has just pointed out that voters in new hampshire are known for making their decisions in the final moments. as al jazeera's erica pitzi reports, the candidates are campaigning hard to sway the undecided. >> reporter: as many as 44% of new hampshire voters are undeclared. these are people that have not yet picked a party, are likely independent and many are undecided. >> i'm still going back and north my mind. >> the candidates know it and are trying at a capitalize on it. >> as we get these last few days, there are still a large number of undecided voters. you have to ask yourself how do we make this choice? >> to answer that question for themselves, as many candidates are going to meet and greets as they can. >> this is four or five. >> this is my fifth. >> this is my eighth one.
11:06 pm
>> kendra beckwith wants to make sure their messages are clear. >> i want to see whether it is a canned speech or genuine. >> and she has seen everybody from carly fiorina to marco rubio. >> i need to make an informed decision. >> for each candidate, instead of joining in on the applause lines, beckwith takes copious notes on her phone. seeing these candidates in person goes beyond policy. that means like for candidates, marco rubio. >> i want to see how real he was. >> we caught up with carly fiorina. and even after a dozen events -- >> i'm still undecided. >> new hampshire voters are notoriously undecided. undecided voters here do not even have to pick a party until the moment they cast their ballots on tuesday.
11:07 pm
>> new hampshire voters they love to shop. you guys are great shoppers. >> as a registered democrat are you definitely choosing between bernie and hillary clinton or are you here to listen to chris christie? could you slip over to the republican side? >> i could always flip over you never know. >> trump is leading the republican field but he is giving carly fiorina a shot at change his mind. >> donald trump gets to be a billionaire by buying off politicians, that's what he has done. >> while she hasn't made up her mind beckwith knows who she wants in her ballot. >> somebody i would be comfortable with having dinner at my kitchen table. if the candidate peace that criteria, i feel like they would have the potential to work across the yal aisle, on topicst
11:08 pm
are so critical. >> critics are accusing clinton of exploiting the flint issue for her own campaign. >> she went to a big flint church where she told the congregation exactly what they wanted to hear. hillary clinton got a rock star welcome at one of flint's largest churches the house of prayer. she wasted no time in criticizing how long it took. whether the city switched its water supply to the polluted flint river in 2014. >> i'm here because for nearly
11:09 pm
two years mothers and fathers were voicing concerns about the water's color, about the smell. about the rashes that it gave to those who were bathing in it. >> and she got her loudest applause when she gave voice to what a lot of people here suspect. that they were ignored because of race and poverty. >> i said weeks ago, if what had been happening in flint had happened in gross point or bluefield hills, i think we all would know, we would have had a solution yesterday. >> hillary is showing that she really cares about this community. >> a cynic might say that a political candidate coming here might be politicizing all of this. what would you say to all this? >> well, hillary didn't have to come, she's got a thing in that other state. >> it doesn't matter if she's using that for political gain. i don't think she is.
11:10 pm
>> she says she could put all the peej people t people to wore infrastructure issue. >> i'm kind of like a do it your yourselfer, too. >> the impact on residents, especially children, is likely to be severe and not known for years. >> let's make sure we give each child a chance to give up to his or her god given potential. thank you all and god bless you. >> democrats in the u.s. senate are proposing $600 million in federal aid to flint, that would be on top of the 28.5 million that the state legislature has already approved and the $80 million that president obama has set aside for flint.
11:11 pm
ranld. >> andy rosegen in flint. now to the disturbing story about the north korea's rocket launch. pyongyang could be developing its nuclear weapons program. the u.n. saying the launch put the entire world at risk. north korea claims it was part of a peaceful space program but diplomats think it was really a secret missile test. the u.s. now leading the charge to quickly impose new sanctions on north korea. al jazeera'al jazeera's gabrielo as more. >> ambassadors and diplomats rushing into the security council chamber or the an emergency meeting. >> weakness is not an option. >> the security council offered strong condemnation and promised a new resolution. samantha power, the u.s. ambassador to the united nations, said the rocket firing
11:12 pm
was not just a nuclear threat. >> pyongyang claims it launched what it called a peaceful earth observation satellite. but nobody is fooled, so-called space launch vehicles are the same as nuclear ballistic missiles. we are looking forward to expeditiously, all councilmembers to unite around a swift resolution, to constitute a counter to the threat. >> week long launch window the rocket carrying a satellite lifted off. now the west is hoping for an
11:13 pm
equally quick response. but the u.s. and china were still in the midst of a resolution for the nuclear test last month. now the question is whether china, north korea's strongest backer will agree to stiff new sanctions. >> a new resolution that will do the work of reducing tension, of working towards denuclearization, and encouraging a negotiated solution. >> the rocket launch violated four different u.n. security council resolutions and how with another resolution being worked on and pyongyang threatening other rocket launches, the pressure is to finally figure out what if anything will finally convince north korea to stop. because up until now, all threats have fallen on deaf ears. gabriel elizondo, al jazeera, at the united nations.
11:14 pm
>> the he says the key to dealing with north korea is international cooperation. >> when it comes to south korea and japan and the united states, the north's nuclear program is the number 1 priority. it is the number 1 concern. it is the number 1 threat. when it comes to china, their concern is a little bit different. their concern is the collapse of the north korean society and the collapse of the regime will lead to tens of thousands of north korean refugees over their border. as much as china is not exactly fond of north korea's behavior, the worst outcome for them is collapse. unless and until beijing and washington can agree to some common ground and approach north korea saying the same things and implementing the same kinds of punishment for this kind of behavior the north will be able to continue to exploit the differences. >> paul carroll also told us that the timing of the launch is
11:15 pm
likely related to weather conditions, not the ongoing south korean holiday. the search continues for the survivors of saturday's earthquake in taiwan. some people blame construction companies for cutting corners make buildings unsafe. rob mcbride reports. >> the rescue teams efforts are getting harder. hang in there the rescuer shouts we will soon get you out. >> translator: people are trapped in very small spaces and we can't use big machinery down there. we mostly dig with our lands. >> reporter: around the edges of the site, relatives of the missing have been waiting anxiously for news since the earthquake on saturday morning that caused this entire complex to crumble in seconds trapping hundreds as they slept.
11:16 pm
wan shing wai urges rescuers to look again pfn chen is looking for her three-year-old baby, who was being cared for by her sister. she still didn't understand what happened. >> it's the construction company's fault. other buildings didn't collapse like this one. >> many are now saying the complex was poorly designed and poorly built. in the local mandarin language it's like a tofu building, had no structure, when the earthquake struck it simply toppled over. these are tin cans that had been used in place of concrete on several floors. and local media are focusing how the building was altered, turned into commercial space that may have weakened it further.
11:17 pm
of equal concern is how the authorities in this quake prone area of taiwan didn't prevent such alterations. >> translator: the local prosecutors office are doing a full investigation and they have come here to collect evidence. >> as that investigation ramps up, so the search of the building continues with the likelihood of finding more bodies than survivors. rob mcbride, al jazeera, tainan city, taiwan. there are 350,000 mentally ill prisoners in the prison population. >> i they don't have the strength i have. they killed theirself. >> up next the cry for help for the mentally ill. and it's the beginning of the chinese new year. the year of the monkey is underway. derway.
11:18 pm
11:19 pm
11:20 pm
>> there's been a transfer of power in latte bu haiti but it e people there very worried. the president departed without a long term replacement, the future of the poorest nation in the hems fears. more from natasha guinane. >> president michel martelly was
11:21 pm
supposed to hand over control, instead, president michel martelly is ending his five year term with a lot of uncertainty and the carnival celebration is cancelled due to uncertainty. this is what's happening on the way forward. the president and the parliament have reached an agreement, the parliament will elect a new president and there will be another election, the winner to take power in mid may. the opposition is entirely against this agreement. they believe the entirely electoral process is suspect. they're asking for an independent investigation, to be conducted. big question now is: what happens them. will there be more protests? there have been weeks of protests in the country, some of them violent. and the concern that there will
11:22 pm
be more in the coming days, there was supposed to be a carnival celebration on sunday evening and that has been cancelled. >> natasha guinane reporting from port-au-prince. >> more than 350,000 people with mental illnesses are incarcerated in u.s. jails and prisons. tonight, a look at what happens after they are released. >> i have friends that have done less time than me and was released but they didn't have the strength that i had. they killed theirselves. >> nearly two decades after her manslaughter conviction stacy hamilton reentered society. she was set adrift she says in a world she no longer knew. homeless with her mental illness flourishing. >> the reality is you walk out with nothing. you might have two weeks worth of medication but that's it. nobody followed up to see if i was alive.
11:23 pm
to see if i survived it. >> hamilton was first diagnosed in prison. her disorders ranging from depression to schizophrenia. >> being locked in solitary confinement and hearing the person in the next cell or two celts over screaming for their life because they are being raped or beaten. you can hear the blows. it's impossible for you to stay with the sound mind. it's impossible. >> the most rapid mental deterioration that i witnessed was in solitary confinement. >> are mary helped run a mental health unit at rykers island. >> a lot of schizophrenia, a lot of bipolar disorder, inmates who were in the manic phase of bipolar disorder were the most
11:24 pm
at risk of brutality from the officers on rykers. i was especially worried about getting those meds to kick in. >> what little care she could provide was often better than what waited on the outside. >> there was a great sadness to me because i knew that once they were released from rykers island they got a medication prescription for the meds that they were on and then they were simply put on a bus, brought to queens plaza and there's nothing. absolutely nothing. >> and don't worry about transportation. i'll reimburse you. >> where the system fails it falls to private advocacy groups to step in. >> it puts everybody in danger. >> johnny perez works with the mental health project. connecting the recently released nments witinmates with care.
11:25 pm
>> accessing is nearly impossible. >> policies vary among jurisdictions. the new york state department of corrections told al jazeera it identifies parolees who might need services and place et cetera them in program. but perez says he rarely sees that happen. and once referrals were definitive, they are often out of date. >> one inmate was given a referral to an address which was outdated. he thought his illness was playing tricks on him so to speak. >> stacy is now an activist and peer counselor. >> as long as there are people with mental illness that can't fend for themselves, i will fight every day for that. >> a little over a week ago, president obama said he would seek to ban solitary confinement
11:26 pm
for inmates in mental health. >> a plan to wipe out i.s.i.l. the topic next on tonight's the week ahead. and later, not even the threat of the zika virus can stop brazil's carnival. and next, why you should not park your car on a frozen lake.
11:27 pm
11:28 pm
>> welcome back to al jazeera america, here's a look at your top stories. the u.s. is leading calls to
11:29 pm
impose new sanctions against north korea. the united nations security council held a special emergency meeting today where members condemned pyongyang for launching a rocket on saturday. north korea claims it was a space satellite but world leaders say it was really a missile test. presidential candidates have two more days to win over new hampshire voters before that state's primary on tuesday. donald trump is leading among republicans with senator marco rubio his closest competitor down by 16 points. democratic voters favor senator bernie sanders over hillary clinton. in southern taiwan, rescue workers continue searching the rebel for more than 100 missing people. they've already found at least 32 dead in the wreckage of a high rise, an earthquake hit the region earlier this week destroying several buildings. it is sunday night and time for our regular look at the week ahead. defense secretary ash carter
11:30 pm
will join the 18th i.s.i.l. coalition in brussels, this week. carter wants to bring more military might, and has welcomed saudsaudi arabia's willingness o send ground troops to syria. growing threat in libya, they are recommending that the u.s. give more attention to the war torn north african country. president obama's military advisors are urging him to approve air strikes raids and cia missions in libya but the president is pushing for diplomadiplomacy. trying to institute stability into a country that has been without a leader for two and a half years. al jazeera's jamie mcintire
11:31 pm
reports. >> a series of assaults on libya's oil vawrkt. libya's infrastructure. in a video, i.s.i.l. vows more attacks in the coming days. by one estimate the group now controls a 150 mile strip of coastline around sirte, an oil rich area, roughly half the way from benghazi and tripoli. we're looking at military options range of other options as a government. that we can engage in to try and, as the situation in libya unfolds. we want to be prepared as the department of defense always wants to be prepared in the event that i.s.i.l, in libya, becomes more of a threat than it
11:32 pm
is even today. >> sources say the option he include air strikes from the u.s. aircraft carrier in the mediterranean sea or nato bases in europe. they could also include u.s. commando raids like raids conducted in iraq and syria. 2012 benghazi attack that left u.s. ambassador chris stevens and others dead. forced to admit that u.s. forces were in libya in december after sources posted their photos on facebook. it was the pentagon now admits part of an effort to find local fighters in libya the u.s. can support, much like similar efforts in syria and iraq. >> there was a small group there to meet a diverse group to
11:33 pm
decide what's going on. >> the decision on libya will probably come in weeks. the idea is to build a sort of fire wall around libya, while libya's fledgling government has a chance to establish itself. right now, there is no government in libya, making inroads questionable at rest. >> jack berger and doug olivant in washington, d.c, a former ambassador to iraq. mr. olivant, you heard jamie mcintire talking about the unlikelihood of some progress against i.s.i.l. in libya. what do you think based on your knowledge and your conversations
11:34 pm
with security officials in d.c, will it take to diminish i.s.i.l.'s influence in libya? >> well, the setup piece talked about special forces, raids, and air power. and that's wonderful to do pinprick, stop the bleeding, keep them from expanding. but to really take the fight to i.s.i.l. in libya we have to have a unity government. so the military and the diplomatic tracks aren't contradictory. we need to do one in fairly limited fashion, to do what we can while this unity government tries to establish itself, but that is really the answer in the long term is to get government ton ground that can take fight to i.s.i.l. that we can then support. >> we know that there are at least ten groups vying for power in libya. let's take a look at a map. mr. berger, this question goes to you. i.s.i.l. controls a relatively small swath of libya around 150
11:35 pm
miles around sirte. what is the import of that area that they hold? it is an oil producing region but also appears to be sort of a very important strategic point between two major cities. >> it is. it is very central. but the other thing is that because the territory in libya is so wide-open and control is so hard in the southern regions in the desert, i.s.i.l. having any kind of beach head whatsoever means they can move around the country. they have already seized another town called sobrata, they set up checkpoints and the town is now theirs. they may lose that town but they have a base to disrupt those oil producing regions that they don't control yet, but certainly are trying to control. that's the most dangerous aspect i would say. >> house of representatives, the libyan dawn militia, islamic state in libya libya, do any ofe
11:36 pm
groups have enough power to take on i.s.i.l? >> it would mean weakening themselves, the groups in misrata who make up the libya shield and libya dawn forces, trying to prevent i.s.i.l. from advancing towards the city and the forces in the east are trying to protect the vital oil producing regions. that's been their primary goal as opposed to destroying i.s.i.l. as it exists. >> doug olivant, do you have any sense of how much oil production i.s.i.l. is controlling and how much revenue they're getting from that? >> i think the answer presently is not very much. and that's because there just isn't very much revenue to be had anyway. the libyans aren't producing what they could be. and therefore these wells i.s.i.l. is getting its hands
11:37 pm
on, i would defer to jack, isn't producing much for them at this time. >> do you think the u.s. should assist the libyan national army, general haftar, and other than i.s.i.l. whose side do you select? >> i don't think we necessarily have to pick a side. i think the role the united states needs to take on is to essentially knock heads and get these groups together and force them to form sim typ some type y government. i know that's easier said than done. but the bar is lower, these are more or less all sunni arabs, don't have the iranian influence problems you have in the gulf, you don't have any shia, again only small groups of ethnic minorities. looking objectively, it's a low
11:38 pm
happening fruit easy problem for region which again still makes it difficult. >> when we heard about libya it was around the benghazi affair where our board and some other americans were killed. to what point do yo extent do yo that event? >> the group that carried out or that was mainly involved in that attack was sharia in libya, which is affiliated to lib ya c, linked to the libyan dawn, along with al qaeda in the islamic megrheb. and scared international parties
11:39 pm
away because they realized the risk they ran, especially with diplomats on the ground. and in july 2014 a lot of the diplomats left seeing the desert safety factors. >> jeb bush talked about this in the debate. listen to this. >> there's been 70 plus attacks in 17 countries either inspired by i.s.i.s, or headed by i.s.i.s, we have to deal with the caliphate, in iraq, but also in libya, and i think the united states is going to play a significant role in this. >> doug olivant should the u.s. perhaps have been playing more attention to libya rather than repressing i.s.i.l. in syria so far the focus we've heard about
11:40 pm
in the news? >> again i think objectively speaking, not to emphasize the intramural aspects and the islamist aspects, this seems to be a relatively easy problem to put together. the issue is the last ambassador we sent there got killed. so that does make it difficult to do a diplomatic press in the country. absent that, all we're going to do is do special forces raids plinking. >> sirte is relatively close to europe. it's been a major point of departure for migrants. i.s.i.l. is sitting on a pretty important choke point that should have some concerns for european nations, yes? >> yes. and i think that's one of the biggest issues.
11:41 pm
because we've talked about the oil revenues. but i.s.i.l. is very good at drawing resources from other sources. they put people through horrible ordeals, a lot of them. and once they leave the coast of libya, for most of these smugglers they don't care if they arrive in europe or not. when we talk about the human toll that we see when these groups are allowed to hold on to this territory, it can be very, very terrible. >> and we have the possibility, doug olivant, of someone infiltrating among the migrants to crete or greece or some other areas. >> that's a possibility however there is much easier way of getting i.s.i.l. into europe than traveling with the migrants
11:42 pm
but it is possible. >> mr. berger looking forward with this meeting that is going to be taking place is it just going to be more talk or do you think now there will be some action of some sort? >> well as doug said i think it's going to be knocking heads together. it's going to be trying to figure out a way that the regional actors will try to agree on a proposed unity government. the proposed unity government was rejected by the parliament in tobruk. in order for action to be taken, especially with international cooperation, there needs to be a government in the country. dealing with i.s.i.l. on the ground is going to be difficult. >> two major competing forces with respect to government empties? entities? >> yes, one in tobruk, those
11:43 pm
governments have had a lot of trouble seeing eye to eye, general haftar you mentioned earlier, considers that entire government to be run by terrorists, which makes its very hard to find common ground, especially when we're going to try to be finding partners. >> with i.s.i.l. in the middle of the pie. >> absolutely. >> thank you for being with us, mr. berger, doug olivant. >> thank you randall. >> here are other stories we'll be watching in the week heat. janet yellen will be answering questions with regard to the fed's decision to raise interest rates. and junior doctors in england are planning their second walkout of the year to protest low pay and long working hours. and the brazilian army will be handing out pamphlets ton zika virus and making sure homes do
11:44 pm
not contain mosquito breeding spots. up next with sanctions lifted in iran, amazing business opportunities for the country's young people. meet some young entrepreneurs hoping to cash in. and: the year of the monkey is underway. the chinese new year celebration coming up. >> tonight we are following two separate storms across the united states. one to the north bringing blizzard conditions as well as one towards the south that is moving up the coast and we are going to be seeing a lot of rain and snow as well as take a look at this, when you park your car on a lake that is not quite frozen well, it could fault in. i'll bring you the details right after this.

11:49 pm
founder of one of iran's first internet companies. >> iran has a young forward-looking population which are very active users on the internet. also it has a large number of successful tech companies which have huge potential to penetrate the markets. >> iran's top tourism official, says the country hopes to host 20 million tourists by 2025. iran's 400 billion economy is the second largest in the region after saudi arabia. and the government is targeting an average annual growth of 8% through 2020. >> they are looking forward with great expectation to a new type of future that's brighter, and that if those expectations aren't met, i think that given the size of the young population in iran and the high
11:50 pm
expectations they have, a lot of frustration could result. >> but decades of economic closure and a poor international image means big obstacles still remain. >> brain drain is a challenge in iran and should be taken very seriously. but with these new opportunities we will hopefully expect a betterment in iran's economy and job market. >> i always wanted to do something great for iran. that was my dream past 20 years. >> reporter: a homecoming that today, iran is making possible. al jazeera. carnival is on a collision course with zika virus, who could face grave repercussions. al jazeera's lucia newman has more from rio de janeiro. >> a crowd of estimated 100,000 jumps and sings to the music to

11:53 pm
janeiro. >> and 90 a look at the weather with meteorologist kevin corriveau. >> thank you randall. another weather system is going to be make its way up north. on the heels of another system on friday, area ever low pressure just off the carolinas. the area of low pressure has just begun to intensify over the last six hours. we have seen a lot of rain and that rain has led to flooding across virginia, north into south carolina. but as that system moves to the north things will begin to clear out for many parts of that area. but unfortunately up here to the northeast, it will be a combination of rain. that rain this evening is going to turn to snow. we want to show you how much snow we'll get with this particular storm. how far away from the area of low pressure you are going to be. the areas of white in parts of new jersey over here towards the valley of new york we're going
11:54 pm
to be seeing about one to three inches of snow. as you get off long island and new england, that snow total does go up. parts of connecticut, three to five inches, then towards the east, five to seven to eight inches then over here towards parts of the rhode island as well as the cape, it is going to be more like 12 to 16 inches. and because that area is so close to the area of low pressure we are going to be seeing blizzard conditions across that region. what that means is the winds are going to pick up, drop the visibility to less than half a mile and it is going to extend for more than three hours in that area. we do expect to see anywhere between 24 and 36 hours there. the system here towards the northern plains that one is bringing some very, very gusty winds as well as blizzard conditions for parts of iowa as well as minnesota. those will continue all the way through monday evening. and now i want to take you over here towards parts of wisconsin.
11:55 pm
