6:02 am
weather conditions wreckage was scattered across snowy fields near the village of going over eighty kilometers southeast of moscow rescue teams were unable to reach the crash site by road and walked to the scene. i saw an explosion on the ground and i called emergency services they asked me many questions i told them there was a fire it was very visible and the debris of the plane is spread over radios of at least one kilometer investigators are using modern equipment taking into consideration the large territory air using quite a couple years to get a view from the air the short haul set a lot of airlines jet took off from moscow's domodedovo airport early sunday afternoon on its way to the city of or sq in the urals most of the sixty five passengers on board were from the region at the airport their family and friends of those on board the flight began to wait for news with little hope that anyone had
6:03 am
survived. we have found a breeze from an a n one for a plane and bodies of stupid hymns. this is just the most important thing now is the organized collection of debris and remains of the big it was by ministry of emergency situations workers. transport to authorities soon confirmed everyone in the plane had died russia has suffered two major air crashes in recent years in december two thousand and sixteen a t u one five four military aircraft crashed into the black sea with the loss of ninety two people it was blamed on pilot error in october two thousand and fifteen a russian air bus crashed in egypt's sinai peninsula killing all two hundred twenty four people on board i still said it placed a bomb in the aircraft. right to me putin has canceled a trip to sochi which was shut jeweled for monday he was due to meet the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas that now that meeting will now take place in
6:04 am
moscow from where putin will monitor the investigation investigators have found a flight recorder from the plane and this will be crucial in determining why this relatively new aircraft came promising out of the sky various causes are being considered including pilots era bad weather conditions well perhaps something else really chalons zero mosque or. mikey is an aviation consultant he says finding the second black box will be crucial to the investigation we know that the aircraft wreckage just scattered over a very wide area and this indicates that probably impacted. rather flat and broke up on a high rate of aids the pieces were spread out we've heard report that there was fire on board the aircraft before it crashed we've also heard that the pilot was trying to divert to
6:05 am
a nearby airport for an emergency landing but none of these things are really concerned what will really do now the investigators will do is they'll attempt to recover both of those black box they have won and they'll leave the other one to do a complete investigation. well the first thing they're going to want to do is see if the aircraft was partly d.i.'s if it had been sitting overnight might have accumulated a great deal of ice if the ice wasn't properly remove that would have been a very bad fact. if the weather was bad presumably there on takeoff and climbing out if ice was a factor engine ice or something like that that should show up in the cockpit voice recorder conversations on the digital flight data recorder so that will be important now there were not thunderstorms obviously in the area so primarily we're going to be concerned with ice they got airborne so of visibility should have been an issue so they'll be able to sort through the weather things rather whatley as
6:06 am
they conduct the investigation u.s. president donald trump has questioned israel's commitment to making peace with the palestinians he made the comments in an interview with an israeli newspaper owned by american billionaire and trump baca sheldon adelson and a rare rebuke of these ready to ship the u.s. president says he isn't necessarily sure they're looking to make peace he warns israeli settlements are quote something that very much complicates and always have complicated making peace the edges israel to be very careful with the settlements but trump also repeats what he has been saying about the palestinian leadership he says they're not looking to make peace and threatens to withhold aid on this agreed to talks but things but he says the author of understanding the palestinian israeli conflict she doubts trumps comments represents a policy shift by the u.s. . peace requires at least a modicum of justice that was not on the agenda here a deal implies ending resistance essentially to israeli power that is not on the
6:07 am
palestinians agenda that's been the position recently of the palestinian leadership bringing it closer to matching the position of a wide majority of palestinian. civil society so i think what we're seeing here is certainly not the end of the u.s. role as a as an honest broker because it never was an honest broker this is simply a clearer acknowledgement of that reality not to you know who knows that trump remains his his strong supporter but i think that netanyahu is likely to view his own relationship with the further right wing elements of his cabinet because remember as right wing as netanyahu is his cabinet is made up of further right and extremist right elements to his right and in that context i think he will feel obligated to make some kind of a statement i don't anticipate it will go very far he is not about to break with the united states president trump has made clear that he is more more more
6:08 am
officially and formally pro israel than any other recent president and he's not about to put that at risk but i think he will have to say something to satisfy his own right wing. israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu has vowed to continue military operations inside syria a day after one of his f. sixteen s was shot down by enemy fire israeli warplanes carried out a series of strikes on saturday on what it says were iranian targets inside syria and that's now who says the operation was a serious blow to iran sorry for support from western muslims. israeli soldiers collected debris on sunday at the site where an air force f. sixteen fighter crashed a day earlier while the investigation continues the army told al-jazeera it had confirmed the plane was struck by a syrian anti-aircraft missile the first israeli fighter shot down since one thousand nine hundred two. at the border israeli media reported anti missile batteries have been increased after extensive israeli counterstrikes the day before
6:09 am
inside syrian territory more. than one called shock yesterday we landed hard blows in the forces of iran and syria we made unequivocally clear to everyone that our modus operandi has not changed one jot we will continue to hit back for every attempt to harm us for any blown flicked on us this is been our policy and this will remain our policy. the incident began with the downing of what israel says was an iranian drone launched from syria that had crossed into israeli air space iran continues to deny the charge the secretary of the national security council saying the allegations by zionists that they hit iranian bases in syria is a lie we are in syria as consultants we don't have the kind of military presence for them to make this allegation the years israel's government has been talking about a mounting iranian threat on its northern borders i don't think we thought we were not to vulnerable but we certainly didn't expect it to happen this quickly so
6:10 am
that's why i'm saying it's a wake up call for the future the army knows how to respond in a way or want to create an escalation. the only way it will create installations in the school is israeli politicians have been praising what they've called a current public reaction to this incident but they're also aware that it highlights increasingly complex and difficult relationship with russia and its role inside syria israel struck targets close to where russian forces are based on saturday. prompting a statement from russia's foreign ministry calling it absolutely unacceptable to endanger the lives of russian soldiers inside syria. this after months of diplomatic efforts to convince russia to help constrain iranian activity there. but one former senior israeli military intelligence officer the loss of the plane and the extent of the retaliation don't represent a new phase in the conflict rather a reminder of its stakes. in the longer run but look the long the arena presence in
6:11 am
syria should come to an end and we expect russia and the united states to make sure that this is going to be the end result israel says its military response is now complete but this weekend has put the dangers of a largescale cross border conflict into sharp focus very force it out west jerusalem at least six civilians including two children have been killed in syrian government asterix in the capital damascus the attacks targeted several towns in the rebel held suburb of eastern ghouta it falls within a so-called deescalation zone agreed to by turkey russia and iran syria government and russian air strikes have killed more than two hundred forty people in rebel held areas in the last week the u.n. says some of the attacks may be war crimes the un's also calling for an immediate deescalation of fighting in syria to address a worsening humanitarian crisis according to the food agency nine million people
6:12 am
need food assistance koenig's the syria country director for the world food program he says any tuesdays to last for at least a month. at the moment thought keeps us from going to these places too east. to. the fighting the security of our stuff of calls is most important but also the ends it's dangerous to come out in and collect for example food fighting going on so we need to pause in the fighting and call a month. their houses are full we have a big. work army supporting so median people every day we salute assistance in the country and we can easily she fleece all see if you have an opening to do you haven't leeched full as i say two months now. north korea is a limpet delegation has left seoul leaving the south korean government to consider an offer of a summit in pyongyang the group which included the powerful sister of north korean

6:21 am
fifteen that despite all were inside agreeing to stop recruiting tough soldiers and releasing those already enlisted but even for those who have been demobilized life is a challenge. many children who've been released have no idea where their families are for others fighting has become a way of life that the biggest challenge is reintegration it's a process that takes time two to three years for that child to go back home and resettle we still have more kids to be released so access big thing there we need more kids to be released all real concern is the reintegration of these children so that they don't get recruited again. john and sara say they don't want to return to the battlefield but they also feel what lies ahead after their past experiences and wonder if they may be forced to fight again he will mourn onto their own young south sudan. the british foreign secretary has urged me and mas leader aung san suu kyi to allow the un to supervise the return of ranger refugees boris johnson made

6:24 am
. well the new york attorney general eric schneiderman has filed suit in the new york county supreme court not only against harvey weinstein personally but also against his brother and the company as a whole now the reason for this is the attorney general is because of what he believed was an imminent sale of the company this could result he was concerned in victims not getting sufficient compensation in those within the company who empowered harvey weinstein in what i described his predatory actions maintaining their positions and getting some financial benefit out of the sale of the suit details very very closely numerous allegations against harvey weinstein in particular but also against the company as a whole for various contraventions of new york code and new york business practices it makes very clear that there were layers within the weinstein company that will
6:25 am
well aware of the activities of the principal shareholder and in fact empowered him in his activities the h.r. department for example received numerous complaints over the past four or five years not a single one of these complaints were acted upon the attorney general also found that senior members of the board were well aware of harvey weinstein's activities and they did nothing about it so the suit now filed in. supreme court already knew one party who was going to be attempting to buy the company has withdrawn the offer to buy immediately in the wake of this particular suit so the attorney general's apparent wish that the sale of this company will not go ahead until all those within it are held accountable and are held responsible for their role in facilitating the activities of harvey weinstein himself oxfam is facing new allegations of its star fused prostitutes in the african nation of chad in two

6:27 am
much more responsible staff to make decisions which are now seen as being by some marginal or inappropriate but i'm not apologizing for the fact that oxfam tried to continue its work in haiti the head of south africa's ruling african national congress says party leaders are preparing to finalize a deal that will result in president jacob zuma leaving office zuma is under growing pressure to leave a corruption allegations a.n.c. leaders serum of course says leaders meeting on monday will decide on a swift transfer of power. now the u.k. has appointed a minister for loneliness to help the vulnerable in society who feel isolated an estimated two hundred thousand senior citizens in britain have not had a conversation with a friend or relative in more than a month and more than half of those over the age of seventy five live alone are u.k. correspondent bob the phillips has that story my wife died about two and
