9:00 am
now live from london "bbc world news." our top story, an explosion in ukraine is reported to have killed more than 30 people. we will report from the scene. two australian drug smugglers transferred to an island where they will be executed. the prime minister says he is revolted. police in india. and why two american football players say they will donate their brains to science.
9:01 am
officials say that more than 30 people have been killed after an explosion in a coal mine in donetsk. the plast occurred underground. it happened in the early hours of the morning and could have been caused by a technical fault. the rescue operation has been hampered by concerns about poisonous gas. our correspondent is at the mine where the explosion happened and has been telling me more about the casualties.
9:02 am
>> reporter: an official has confirmed to us that 33 people have been killed. they say they brought seven of the bodies out. we are told by the officials that around 30 people are still trapped inside the mine which i'm standing outside of now. some rebel soldiers are standing guard outside. and although you don't get a huge sense of emergency here there aren't lots of emergency vehicles and this has been a pretty tragic incident we believe the explosion at the mine happened in the early hours this morning. >> just to recap, a representative of the rebels saying 33 people confirmed dead. do they have as we were talking about earlier on the program, do they have the resources to mount
9:03 am
a rescue operation for those still trapped? >> reporter: i think that is one of the questions whether they have the ability to deal with this type of emergency. there have been mining disasters at this particular mine in the past particularly one back in 2007 i believe. but i think it is a test of the authorities here. this is of course a self declared republic in the east of ukraine that has been at war with the army for nearly a year now. so it will be a test of the authority. they say that they are recovering bodies. of course, there are people trapped underground. >> one of the few journalists at the scene of the accident. our correspondent has been following the story, too. he has been telling me more about that mine where the explosion occurred. >> definitely there would have been hundreds underground on any day at any one time.
9:04 am
large numbers. as you say, again, absolutely very very deep. apparently this is quite an old mine so they have to dig deeper and deeper underground so they can be very very deep in that mine. if they are trapped the rescue operation will be pretty complex. the other issue is whether the rebels in donetsk can deal with the emergency assuming it is on the scale that there are reports saying it is then the rescue operation is going to be dig and complex. >> there was a major incident at this mine a few years ago with many people there. >> this mine has a very very poor safety history. if you go back to 2007 more than 90 miners were killed. it was at that time the worst disaster in ukrainian mining history. and there have been several other instances, as well in that mine.
9:05 am
so it does not have a good safety record. >> it is going to be tricky given the tensions around. tensions between the rebels and ukrainian government still high? >> completely. we are hearing reports that soldiers are being killed. the fighting is going on but a much lower level. it is being split up. there are parts which control the rebels and in control of the ukrainian army. if you want to try to build a big rescue operation then you need equipment and experts to come in from across the whole region. that could be quite difficult now. two australian drug traffickers facing the death penalty in indonesia have been transferred to an island where they will be executed.
9:06 am
>> reporter: inside these armored vehicle andrew chan and myuran sukumaran the two members of the bali nine smuggling ring at the center of the clash. unprecedented security surrounding the two as they left their bali jail that has been their home for the better part of the last decade. this is where they will spend their final days the island known as indonesia's alcatraz. it is not clear when the executions will take place but the transfer of the prisoners indicates it is imminent. eight others are set to be executed. andrew chan and myuran sukumaran have exhausted all of their appeals and have had clemency applications rejected.
9:07 am
australia says the two men have reformed and should be given a second chance. it's implied indonesia's position will have serious repercussions. >> i have been saying again and again that this is contrary to indonesia's national interests and contrary to indonesia's best values. >> reporter: indonesia says this hasn't been an easy decision. >> we do it for a very big reason. i am sad to see the situation, but i have to say this is the very best and very sad situation. >> reporter: showing off the loot from a recent drugs raid authorities here want to show that they are serious about cracking down on this illegal trade. the president declared a drug
9:08 am
emergency. looks like bad news for investment bankers. >> kind of a common theme of banks coming back to good old traditional banking. let me explain. the world bank of scotland is aiming to cut as many as 14,000 jobs from the investment banking department. the paper says that the bank is planning on cutting as many as 80% of the jobs in the 18,000 strong investment banking unit. this is more than likely taking place in asia and the united states. you may remember last week rbs reported a loss of nearly $5.5 billion. that was an improvement from the near $14 billion loss in 2013.
9:09 am
we will wait for that rbs statement. now, in a surprise move india's central bank has lowered the key interest rate for the second time this year on the back of easing inflation. the reserve bank of india cut the rate to 7.5%. the cut comes days after the government unveiled the business friendly budget aimed at attracting greater investment for the economy. ukraine's central bank has sharply done the opposite. it raised interest rates from 19.5% to 30% in an effort to curve inflation and prop up its beleaguered currency. in the last year it lost two-thirds of its value against the dollar. inflation is expected to hit at least 26% this year some suggesting it may be 30%. the move was welcome by the people of ukraine but there are fears the country's economy is

interviews with the accused. for that the government says the permission granted from the prison authorities needs to be investigated and the home minister said he will look into it. the other aspect is about the statements the convict and lawyers have given may lead to because they feel that it is going to be violent towards women in the future and that is why they said they will not permit the film to be screened in india. the home minister said he is going to get in touch with the information and broadcasting ministry to look into whether there can be bans or restrains imposed on the screening of the film outside of india. >> what has been the wide reaction to the film? i imagine campaigners are pretty annoyed if it were not to be
9:13 am
shown. >> that is very interesting. in fact the larger view that seems to be coming out of the women activists who have been campaigning in the last 2 1/2 years and even before the gang rape made headlines they seem to be a bit annoyed with the significance being attached to the comments of the convict as well as his lawyer. they seem to suggest that this is not the kind of view that needs to be highlighted right now and in some ways it takes away from all the effort that the protests changing of the laws and that the women activists have been making in the last 2 1/2 years and says a film since the gruesome gang rape should be highlighting some of the achievements instead of highlighting what the rapists or
