speaker of the house paul ryan expressed his solidarity. we must confront this threat together. we must defend democracy and defeat terror. >> testifying before congress, the military collision against isil is vit am. it's only one part of the fight. >> we need the intelligence, the homeland security and law enforcement so do our partners, because of the kind of thing you saw in brussels. at the chicago airport, there were long lines and beefed up security. it was a similar scene in new york, where the mayor tried to reassure the public. >> there is no threat to new york city at the time. the n.y.p.d.'s top counter-terrorism official said attacks like the one in brussels could provide assistance.
10:11 pm
>> what we can learn from what they tell us and teach us, whether it's the actions of the terrorists, or whether it's the advice from the local authorities, that we can bring back here. >> there were republican critics in said president obama should cut short his trip and return to washington to deal with the problem of terror. in an interview late on tuesday the president said the premise of terror is to disrupt people's lives, and late on tuesday he boarded air force one to argentina the director of the programme on extremism at george washington university. good to see you. after islam was arrested, the president of france and prime minister of belgium warned that the terrorist networks were bigger than expected. is what has gone on a failure of intelligence, or is isil so sophisticated, allowing them to
10:12 pm
go dark and avoid protection. >> both. the reality, the magnitude of the networks that isil developed, partially because of social media, partially use of medical techniques that it has managed to create a large structure in europe, unaffiliated, but sympathizing with the equation. most european law force intelligent agencies are mable to cope with a large threat. it will be an example of the country, it does not have the resources to deal with the phenomenon, but also the lack or the poor transnational cooperation will exist within
10:13 pm
europe, how basically european law enforcement agencies are not working with each other the way they should. >> talking about the threat. chris dickey wrote na isil is conducting a gorilla war in the heart of europe. france says we are at war. do you agree? >> obviously we - you are using the word war is problematic. it's deniable that we have commandos, and have gorilla-style warfare. it was - one of those networks were linked to i.s.i.s. it's clear that we have other networks, other cells in place in other european countries, there's a plan to export the conflict in the heart of europe.
10:14 pm
>> the cells seem to have helped salah abdeslam, who hid for months, and the attackers managed to prepare the attack and executed without anyone sounding the alarm, how big an issue are the parallel societies that exist. is there an issue, are they cooperating with authorities. i wouldn't want to exaggerate the phenomenon. it's deniable. there was a network and there was at least silence for the community. at the same time i don't want to exaggerate if i make the point that communicateies are sympathizing with i.s.i.s. it's deniable there is resentment and fear, and that is the environment in which
10:15 pm
i.s.i.s., recruiters thrive. belgium is a problematic environment. >> we are talking about not a matter of populations. >> paris was attacked twice istanbul last week, now brussels. most thing attacks in europe, more will come. what about the united states. the head of counterterrorism with n.y.p.d., john miller, said isil is here in the u.s. how big a threat do you think the group poses here? >> i think it's smaller than in europe. we have not seen, at least in the public sphere, networks structured, organized networks. we have seen quite a few individuals inspired by i.s.i.s. ideology. we know na americans joined
10:16 pm
i.s.i.s., the numbers are smaller, attacks that we have seen, are carried out by individuals who are unorganized, inspired by the ideology, but not necessarily parts of the network. it doesn't mean that the threat is not here, and in the future we may see something changing. at this point in time, the size of the phenomenon is smaller than in europe. >> lorenzo, director of the programme on extremism. appreciate it. good to have you with us. thank you. >> voters in three states weigh in on the presidential race. the latest results, and what they could mean for leaders trying to clinch the nomination. >> candidates that respond to the brussels attacks. and the show of solidarity using the belgium colours, 130 days after the attacks, the city of lights offers brussels a
10:17 pm
shoulder to lean on.
10:18 pm
10:19 pm
tonight will be a long night for political watchers, the presidential contests are out west. polls closed in arizona - not an hour ago, about 20 minutes ago, and it will be a while before we get results from utah and idaho. david shuster is here. he'll have results when they come in.
10:20 pm
we'll head to michael shure in murray, utah. caucusing is going on. utah has an interesting stage by some republicans to stop donald trump, if the polls are right, it could work. >> yes, that's exactly right. good evening to you. i'm at a high school - cottonwood high school. over my shoulder here is a small - one of the small caucuses going on in the school, where about 30 caucuses going on. a lot of people saying it's a huge turn out for the high school and the polling place. just a little anecdote e when this little group caucuses. they got zero votes for donald trump, which prompted a bit of a cheer from that group. that gives you a sense of what is going on, and when you talk about the dynamic in utah. you can't help but look at the mormon vote. it's a big part of it. 66% made up from the chump of
10:21 pm
latter day saints. what we have seen is something a little surprising. we talked about the fact that donald trump, not only do they not like his brash demeanour, but what puts them off is his stand on immigration and muslims. one of the things that he had the biggest problem is people look at mormons, and they see extreme mormons. they see muslims, this is not the dialogue we should have in the country. in murray you tar, cotton high school. >> a lot of what is happening with i.s.i.s. or isil, whatever it's called doesn't reflect what the muslims truly feel. i think that donald trump is trying to divide the country against the muslims. >> reporter: it just seems like all they are motivated by is stopping donald trump.
10:22 pm
someone said if we nominate donald trump, i will vote for the democrat for the first time in my life. >> one of the people spear heading the stop trump effort is mitt romney. you are at the high school. mitt romney is assigned a caucus. any sign of them. >> no sign of him, but we see his son josh, a bit of a political force. he came to deliver an absentee ballot. i asked josh about why he is here, and the romneys are so involved. >> i think people realized the danger to the party and our country, people are railing behind senator cruz, who has the best chance to stop donald trump, and we are doing everything we can to get people to come out and vote for them. >> i asked mitt romney if there was a block of rooms with the name mitt romney on them. he said no, not yet anyway. >> all right, michael. talk to you at 11 o'clock.
10:23 pm
>> let's go to david shuster. arizona closed a few moments ago. no numbers so far, but there were very long lines. and there were issues because of it. >> expectations of the turn out is big. >> i want to know what locker rooms there are, the long lines took a lot of people by surprised, and heightened the importance and intrigue. let's look at what arizona looks like tonight. nothing reporting yet. keep in mind number 58. it is winner take all. let's hope donald trump wins. ted cruz behind that and by the way, because many voted in arizona, you may see as many as 10 or 15,000 votes go to marco rubio. if donald trump, whoever gets the most votes gets all 58. that is significant, because again, as michael shure was talking about in utah.
10:24 pm
it is a state that will likely go to ted cruz tonight. and again, ted cruz is hoping that he can get above 50%, and why is that so important? >> anyone that gets 50% in utah gets all 40 delegates on the republican side in utah. if someone is below 50, it is proportional. if donald trump gets 50%, 20% of the vote. he'd get, you know, 15-20% of the delegates, assuming that ted cruz is below 50%. watch the splits on utah, the results in arizona. here is the delegate count. donald trump is up by more that 247. the key for donald trump is to get to the magic number of 1237 to win, he's on a glide path if he wins arizona, and picks up delegates in utah. big contests coming for trump in the next couple of weeks. the maths is more crucial on the
10:25 pm
democratic side. let's look at that. here is bernie sanders, pledge delegates only. bernie sanders 8:44, hillary clinton 11:63. for the sake of the report we will not focus on the super delegates. in order for bernie sanders to make up the difference here with the pledge delegate by the end of the voting in california, he needs to win 68%, hillary clinton 42. if it's anything tighter that that, let's suppose bernie sanders runs the table. anything less than 58-42, and bernie sanders will not be able to close the gap. the big one, the one with the most delegates, proportional. they are anticipating that this will be an even split. there have been polls suggesting hillary clinton may be up by 15-20 points.
10:26 pm
a couple of things bernie sanders is hoping to run up. that is in the state of utah. bernie sanders, according to polling, was up 35-25, and we have seen long lines in utah. idaho has the democratic caucus, if bernie sanders gets the split, 70-30. it's possible he'll guess to the 58-42 point. even if arizona is a loss. watch the margins, that will determine whether or not bernie sanders is in a position to start willowing down the huge lead. >> national security was going to be a big issue. now with the attacks more so, and the candidates spoke out about it. >> keep in mind hillary clinton, the highest numbers that she had in the race came in the wake of paris, and the tax today in brussels, they prompted all the
10:27 pm
candidates to change the schedules. breakaway from the efforts in arizona, and talked about belgium. >> reporter: soon after the news broke from brussels donald trump went on television. the g.o.p. front-runner condemned the attacks and said they justified the hard-line stance on immigration. >> we are taking to people without real documentation, we don't know where they are coming from, where they are from, who they are. >> brussels is an amazing example. one of the most beautiful cities in the world. and now you look at it, it's a disaster. >> reporter: texas senator ted cruz agreed. >> the attack in brussels is in many ways proof of a failed immigration policy in europe. cruz hammered the military
10:28 pm
isolationism. >> the way to respond is not weakness. as trump suggests. >> ohio governor john kasich focussed on president obama. >> if i were in cuba, the last thing i would be doing is going to a baseball game. i would be going back to washington and assembling all of my advisors, and the leaders of the world, civilized world and say okay, folks, we can't delay, this threat is growing more intense and bigger every day. we are all in this together. issue with isil should boost e hillary clinton. the widers margin over bernie sanders. game in december following the attacks in paris. on tuesday, they lengthed the attacks. we do have to have a clear
10:29 pm
objective of defeating i.s.i.s. of defeating the tactics and activities of terrorists. that's something i have been talking about for some time. bernie sanders talked about the need for effective cooperation to hit isil harder. >> we need to form a coalition of muslim countries, including some that have not been as active as they should be, with the support of the united states and other major powers to destroy this barbaric organization. >> reporter: it's unclear what impact brussels will have on the presidential campaign, but none of them are taking chances. all are speaking out. >> donald trump created controversy. in one interview he said the attacks underscored why he believes in using torture on terror suspects. that was condemned by democrats and many that insist trump's
10:30 pm
rhetoric helps isil thanks, we'll talk more later. more on the coordinator attacks in brussels. we look at why the city may have been attacked. president obama addresses the cuban people about cooperation between the two countries and the courage of those that speak out against the communist government. and another tribute to brussels, the brandenburg gate bathed in black, yetto and red. ((úz@úxó9
10:31 pm
>> this is one of the most important sites in the century. >> this linked the mafia and the church. >> why do you think you didn't get the medal of honor? >> i can't allow you not to go into that because that is your job. >> we gonna bring this city back one note at a time.
10:32 pm

10:33 pm
welcome back to al jazeera america coming up in this half hour of international news, president obama's message to the people of cuba. >> we begin with a top stories, the escalation of violence in cuba. nowhere more than in belgium's capital. where explosions rocked the airport. al jazeera's jacky rowland reports on brussels. >> police have been carrying out searches across the country. they say when they were searching the premises in the district of brussels, they found an explosive device, chemical products, and an isil flag. there has been a threat posted
10:34 pm
online saying there were more attacks to come: it's the end of a traumatic day, people take a moment to honour those that died. and to think of those that even now are fighting for their lives. there are so many questions, how could this happen and why did the attackers choose brussels. >> being a city close to what i love, i have been living here for a while. it came as a shock, and it was hard. honestly, today has been emotionally exhausting. >> it's somewhere you go every day to do work. it's something you don't think can happen. to begin answering questions, you have to go back to november. police raided homes in
10:35 pm
molenbeek. they were looking to members of a coordinated events in paris. that culminated in the capture last week. it has taken place more than four months to find salah abdeslam. he has slipped through their fingers on several occasions. >> in the building behind me belgium police arrested salah abdeslam on friday. security officials warned at the time that in these networks, when one cell is closed down, others are activated. that seems to be what has happened. in percentage terms, belgium has seen more of its citizens travelling to syria than any other country in europe. molenbeek and other areas proved fertile ground for isil recruiters. for young people without jobs, prospects or hope, the isil
10:36 pm
message is simple and seductive. >> i.s.i.s., in my view, was interested in molenbeek, in groups of small criminals. drug dealers and some. they are approached by those that turned in mind and may happen at a short time. >> the timing of the attacks cannot be a coincidence. the bombings appear to be more than an act of revenge. after all brussels hosts the e.u. and n.a.t.o. it seems to be an attack on the heart of europe and all that it stands for. one of the motors is to sow
10:37 pm
division, trying to set muslims and non-muslims against each other. people in the square, in brussels have been sending the opposite message, they think carrying banners with slogons, like we are all united against hatred. that is a message that they are responding in attacks. even in greece, during the protest of a recently closed camp in the macedonian border, attention focussed on attacks in brussels. a young boy held a sign up. news of the attacks and sinls with that message continued. >> since then strict screening processes are focused of keeping records off airline flights. they targeted a departure area. gerald tan reports. >> most airports boast some of the tightest security.
10:38 pm
it was not always so. 9/11 was watershed. after high jackings in 2001. airline passengers were banned for carrying knives and sharp objects in luggage. later that year richard reed tried to ignite explosions hid ebb in his shoes. x-ray screening was introduced. in 2006 british police foiled a plot involving liquid explosives. in response. they now apply for most flights. in 2009 another trans-atlantic flight wag targeted. they attempted to blow is it up using a bombconcealed in underwear. today airports use full body scanners. it stirs a debate about the loss of privacy in the name of security, now brussels, and another loophole apparently
10:39 pm
exploited. the sales in their preplanning operation first identify the best targets. then they'll look for security. if a target is hard, there's a lot of security. they are probably not going to attack it. they want to be success: they'll go with the easiest target. public transportation is an easy target. >> the blast targeted an airline check in counter. in the area before security screening. some airports around the world force people to have their bags scanned before entering terminals. now questions are asked about what is next for travellers. >> how far do we go with security, do we have procedures to check into a check in desk. you can understand the problems, it's about being safe, but it could be a step that needs to be taken. >> reporter: one that shows
10:40 pm
attackers are determined to challenge and undermine aviation safety, appear to be one step ahead president obama wrapped up his historic trip to cuba, addressing the country with a staring message to the ruling congress party, challenging its leaders to join the ranks of the world democracies. melissa chan joins us from havana. how have cuban reacted to the president's visit. >> well they absolutely love him. i mean, in so many ways, according to a poll. this was not conducted by cuban polling company, but a 'washington post' poll, showing that president obama is more popular han fidel or raul castro. he would have had to mess up big time to change the hearts and minds of cubans here, and the fact that he is an african-american spoke to afro cubans in this country.
10:41 pm
over the past few days, lots of event, iconic moments going down history. >> reporter: for once, the start of the baseball game was not on the field. on the final day of an historic visit. president obama and raul castro watched a game between the tampa bay rays and the cuban national team. >> a sliding catch by raul. >> fun and symbolic of the difficult relationship that the two countries have and still have. the players have been a frequent embarrassment. painful voting with their feet, of the star preference to make a life in communist cuba. the trip has generally achieved more in symbols than substance. earlier in the day president obama delivered his speech, broadcast live across the
10:42 pm
country. >> i have come here to bury the last remnant of the cold war in the americas. i have come here to extend the hand of friendship to the american people. >> he repeated a similar message on democracy. >> i believe citizens should be free to speak their mind without fear. to organise and to criticize their government and protest peacefully. and that the rule of law should not include arbitrary detention of people that exercise those rites. >> to underscore the point mr president obama meat with cuban human rights activists. in general cubans welcomed the speech, many saying they want to see change, and, as always, an end to the embargo. >> when you have to buy medicine, you have to look for if in japan or other places. if it has a north american
10:43 pm
component they'll sell it to you. that is damaging to the government, and the cuban people. >> the most important change depends not on the visit but on congress. several times in the last few days the president called on congress to end the embargo. a reminder that on some matters of the president of the united states cannot act alone. >> something interesting that president obama talked about were the limitations of his executive authority, saying that the list was getting shorter every day in terms of what he could do to work around the embargo. it depended on congress to make the big exchange in the relationship between u.s. and cuba. the president went on to say he's not sure when the embargo would end, but he is certain that is will. >> given that he can't do that much any more, the list is getting shorter in terms of
10:44 pm
development between the u.s. and cuba. >> the first thing that came to my mind as i saw the president leave havana. and leave cuba, when will president obama reciprocate. he doesn't have much time left. but it was a question a reporter asked in the news conference, and it went unanswered. the other thing that can be worked on is baseball. going back to baseball. major league baseball put forward proposals. it's a way to get them into the country, trafficked through mexico, that is an area we may see development. >> melissa chan in havana, thank you. ambassador vicky huddleston served as security affairs and
10:45 pm
chef of mission in havana. and is the co author of of book. she joins us from sante fe, new mexico. some of the cuban dissidents that met with president barack obama, described the speech as transformational. no matter where you stand on cuba, and whether the president should have gone to the island at all, it was a powerful speech. >> indeed, it was a powerful meeting and the dissidents have to be inspired by this president who went to cuba, and when he got to cuba, he pushed raul castro to answer the questions. and it turned into a little debate. i am sure it didn't do president obama any good. that's obama, he really believes
10:46 pm
in the future of the united states and cuba, and we should have a relationship that is it good. what little criticism i have seen, he should have been stronger in denouncing human rights abuses. do you think he should have been tougher. >> actually, i don't. i know the cuban government well. when i was in cuba head of the diplomatic mission, i began to hand out am/fm radios. first it was fine. we had a lot of publicity and upped the distribution. castro was so mad that he threatened to throw me out of the country, thin he organized a rally of 20,000 in case i did not see the message that i should stop distributing the little radios. the cuban government wants control. ie the questions.
10:47 pm
they don't want to have questions asked. they don't like surprise or publicity unless they control it. if obama said cuba must do this, improve freedom of speech or assembly, it would harden the government because they'd be embarrassed. >> what do you say to those that argue the benefits will go to the cuban military. normalization is having the opposite of the effect. that it's strengthening the castro and military. >> i would use obama arguments, that they tried it for 55 years and it failed. maybe it's time to look at a new policy. what we are doing now is inspiring the cuban people.
10:48 pm
i heard some of the comments, saying we are knighted by president obama, or we wanted to have economic opportunity, have internet connection. now, the raul castro government is going to have to figure out how they are going to live up to some of the inspiration that president obama instilled while in the country. >> as a cuban american. i specially love this moment. >> in the united states we have a clear monument to what the cuban people can build. it's called miami. here in havana, we see that same talent. >> will that resonate with the cuban people. >> yes. if you want me to tell you what other story when i was head of the diplomatic issue there, the embassy, i was driving the official car, along the main avenue, the americas, and i saw
10:49 pm
the young people hitch-hiking, and i picked up about five of them. i jumped in the car and they said wow, this is a beautiful car. where is it from. this is an american car, it's the crown victoria. and there was silence, and they said "but who are you?" and i said i'm the head of our diplomatic mission here, the united states diplomatic mission, and there was this silence. i was a little worried. and a young woman piped up and said "be our mother, take us to miami." cubans, you know, especially the youth, they believe that they built miami, they are proud of it. they think they have a right to go to miami. that is raul castro's challenge. the president said if the u.s. lifted the embargo, cubans would not realise the potential
10:50 pm
without change in cuba. that is the million dollar question. will the visit lead the change? >> it will lead to change. let's face it the government wants to stay in power. they are not going to undertake changes that they think will push them out of power. for example, the duel exchange rate. they talk about investment. not just from the u.s., but from europe and elsewhere, latin america, but now i believe they are under some pressure, especially from the youth to move fast on the internet. that's probably why president obama pushed hard on something the cubans open up on the internet and the communication side. >> that will be fascinating to see the process, and what happens. good to have your insights on this. thank you. >> thank you. >> it's great to talk to you. >> tomorrow night as president
10:51 pm
obama meets with argentina's president, we look at relations between the u.s. and latin america's second-largest country. >> a ukranian pilot is defiant in the death of two journalist. why world leaders and human rights advocates say she did not get a fair trial. and in rome, the flag is reflected in the fountain.
10:52 pm
10:53 pm
