and parents fighting red tape their children's lives dozens of kids died days for the rare one to syndrome in some boy if the state funds expensive treatment. world news twenty four hours a day you're watching our table straight to our top story now a plane crash that killed forty four people in northwestern russia may have been caused by a power outage on the ground local officials say the plane itself may of clips power lines a runway blackout eight passengers survived the incident and they're being treated in hospital here craft on route from moscow crash landed on a highway just one kilometer from its destination airport. a piece of it is following the story. the latest there we're hearing it from the management at the
3:02 am
airport in part because of what's good northwest russia where this plane it had intended on landing as that's as the plane was coming down it's hit power lines that caused a short term blackout before that before emergency power was able to light up the runway again now this would have only been a very very short blackout through a no and how much that would have affected the situation for the last couple of t. you want three four aircraft we're also seeing though the the weight of the crash landed on a highway around a kilometer away from the runway suggested they really were trying to land almost a highway they had may look to try and make it to the airport on patrols aborts and have been forced to put down basically where they could now whether this is due to the fact that there was no lights on the runway at the time it was we have to wait to find out how the black box recorders being recovered from the wreckage of the crash investigators are looking at to try to determine what brought down this
3:03 am
flight now they are looking of course the what i said the the blackouts a technical failure there whether that was the cause also looking into whether the weather was a fox to take for a round the area of northwest russia when this plane crashed visibility around three hundred meters now that isn't too bad for the area planes to land the pictures of all skin those type of conditions so that they are trying to find out whether that played a factor as well or whether it was too human error that caused this this human error in the cockpit by the pilots on the ground from ground control services now we're hearing horrific stories from eyewitnesses they were on the ground just the fact that this plane came down north on the airport territory came down on a how busy what's the give me a busy highway and the first people who were on the scene to provide aid and rescue work were passes by able to keep close to me try to be heroic acts to to drag people out of the plane before. burst into flames i get three people at little rock
3:04 am
each one was either a girl or a woman i could not sell but she was larger than a man and was hard to see it was dark and there was a man he also was in the house it was not to me and then carried out two more people from the wreckage in the middle of the road another man reached out his hand towards me but i couldn't make it to him everything started exploding i could not get any closer everything was engulfed by fire story the survivors are in a pretty bride state several of them are said to be in a critical condition five being allowed to reform back here to moscow where they'll receive further treatment however three one able to travel due to the competition right there in. we've received six patients with physical trauma. and a sixteen year old girl four of them are in a critical condition we're doing what we can too early to make any progress or steering there the doctors doing their best to do what they can for these people
3:05 am
these eight people who survived this horrific plane crash in northwest russia but these people all over live from moscow will stay with r.t. as we continue our coverage of that plane crash in northwest russia throughout the day. to libya now where another deadly nato bombing in tripoli has reportedly killed at least fifteen civilians they tell insists it hit the command center even officials say three children are among the dead and comes just a day off. killing up to nine civilians in another air strike. technical failure what is written on reports now from tripoli with some images you may find disturbing. and other day has brought more death and destruction to libya a large part compound west of the capital tripoli has been leveled reduced to rubble in apparent airstrike. rescuers have discovered the remains of fifteen people they cordoned to leave in officials one of.
3:06 am
the houses destroyed belong to general who the other kudi one of the people closest to colonel gadhafi he was among those who took part in the military coup to bring the libyan leader to power forty one years ago the general escaped injury but most of his family died in the attack. this man is talking about little i'll be one of the grandchildren of the general and one of three kids killed in the incident. the day of the bombing the family had gathered with friends to celebrate his fourth birthday. libyan civilians it is when attacked in the early hours of this morning killing fifteen people including. children are up but. there is.
3:07 am
no number is fifteen. has denied these claims just as it's never been to the death of more than eight hundred others believe in government says oh killed by their bombs the nine people killed in sunday's bombing of a residential building in tripoli remain the only civilian casualties by the alliance which claimed a mistake technical failure a former pentagon official says the only thing clear about the nato campaign is the mountain casualty toll and it's inflicting on the libyan people they try to achieve a certain level of humanitarian effort and initially but the protracted bombing is now increasingly you know hitting civilian targets and it's creating a very negative reaction i think it does raise the question of what is nato's role continued role going to be there as discontented actions increases other voices become more and more than two. of the libyan people.
3:08 am
and it seems that the more anger they feel about nato the more they support. this is the second thing is that. this is this is this is. just. the. united states is that was. that. was this is. what's certain is that. dying. r t three. and it's
3:09 am
not just foreign intervention in libya that's claiming a growing number of civilian lives as we reveal later in the program. when the u.s. try to see if people who are members of i mean you really then i've been real worried is there any experience this war to the point where so many people join up with all kind of u.s. is under fire for the expansion of its drone attacks in pakistan and yemen we question whether the strategy is hoping to fight terrorism region foster it. the greek prime minister is facing a crucial confidence vote in parliament for the terminal whether he'll be able to secure an action of cash from the e.u. and save the country from plunging into deep crisis on monday you finance ministers for the pressure of greece. two weeks to pass fresh budget cuts and tax increases conditions that must be met to secure a previously agreed installment of. hundreds
3:10 am
party wants out of the e.u. says the only certainty over the next payment for greece is understandable. they won't freeze in feet about it but about the whole deal i mean greece is really not a very large economy. in the present but suddenly billion with probably more to come in twelve months time and i mean where's it all going to when what's basically happening is that the taxpayers of northern europe particularly germany are going to have to pay up to stop greece should default taxpayers of normally or don't particularly like the near fanaticism of the european elite for the political project of the united states of europe and a common currency has resulted in a terrible terrible human cost if there is a greek default the people who would suffer would be the holders of greek sovereign debt who are basically. and the like is sort of the people who are suffering now
3:11 am
who are who are principally private the two million private sector employees in greece who actually bearing the brunt of these draconian austerity cuts. britain will not take part in a new greek bailout that's the u.k. prime minister's promise to taxpayers he said he saw no reason why britain should be involved in the burdens facing countries john gaunt referendum campaign says britain this to cash. george osborne and david cameron our prime minister is saying they will not put any british cash into the buy it out but they're kind of playing with words really because we've just increased the amount of money we paid from ten billion to nineteen billion at least greece defaulting let's face it they are going to default not only on the first but now but on the second bailout if indeed it does go through in a couple of months when they do default on now will be liable to pick up some of the bill so great. i personally agree with the mayor of london boris johnson some people say he will be the next prime minister after cameron i say let's greece go
3:12 am
now to the wall and no more greece must be allowed to leave the eurozone let them have the drachma then they can devalue then they can set their wages where they want to set them then they can begin to rebuild from there if we go do it now as jack straw our former foreign minister and home secretary said in the house of commons it's just a slow agonizing death of the euro. but our financial guru backs kaiser has his say about us financial. debt or pendants with his unique analysis. generation ago or two generations ago the word work imply accumulating savings but now the word work means accumulating debt so what they're saying is you young people out there who are entering the workforce if you work really hard you will accumulate massive debt.
3:13 am
then in lessons from the japanese crisis that's the main aim of the new form if you know which began on monday in the opening session of the meeting the atomic agency chief called for a tightening up of security. and it will also stress the need for greater transparency ministry especially in emergency situations for the long awaited report into the machine with disaster. mountain grimston a london based policy advisor says the decision to keep its results on doors is room. understandably all of those who want to know as much as we can about the present situation clearly sometimes we need discussions behind closed doors to. try to discuss things that may not be the case but which would cause a lot of fear if if they were announced and turned out later not to be the case but
3:14 am
for such a major and meeting of this sort i do believe that a demonstration of openness is extremely important but i think this is the wrong decision people are going to think. that they don't want to come out even if that's not the case i don't believe personally that we've seen a massive cover up of information coming from japan what we have seen though i think is a very slow response to questions and attitude which is we are far too backward looking about this is what we think might have been happening two or four weeks ago instead of this is what we think might happen in two or four weeks time and when that is the attitude there are people are going to think of all four of these are sitting on the information and they don't want to release. some of the international headlines. former tunisian for instance in the other team ben ali and his wife each been sentenced to thirty five years in prison for embezzling state
3:15 am
funds they were tried in absentia after fleeing to saudi arabia when the. judge also ruled that the parents should pay almost sixty six million dollars who's the leader of the power for twenty three years also faces a second arms possession charges. twin suicide car blasts iraqi capital left at least twenty two dead and dozens injured explosive vehicles were blown up near the sense and governor's compound but it's what. comes week after a similar suicide at least. as an attorney for. the u.s. administration says president obama on wednesday of the scale of the withdrawal from afghanistan the speed and size of the product his contributions there with some of the military warning against any rapid withdrawal of one hundred thousand
3:16 am
of us troops in the country the pullout is to start next month and to conclude a twenty one team of afghan forces taking over security. control pain is in its tenth year the remains. of the american public. the u.s. has stepped up its drone attacks in pakistan most recent reportedly killing at least twelve people over a growing number of civilian deaths in the strikes as public anger concerns the action is driving up the number of extremist recruits with reports that the u.s. plans to expand its drone or yemeni territory but this isn't against the strategy is stronger than ever but is any story. the u.s. is looking to expand its war on terror but it's nothing under fire. in pakistan cia drone strikes aim at terrorists but end up killing mostly civilians public
3:17 am
outrage is growing hatred and anger fausta more terror if you push them abuse the wall then if this militancy and goes on is going to increase this is no more dissolution because if you're attacking them by drones and they're not proud of the war. on the other side who which party they're going to join in pakistan in the one year the u.s. strikes killed seven hundred civilians but netted only five actual militant leaders many pakistanis are furious at their government for helping the americans kill their own people they accuse their leaders of doing that in exchange for billions of dollars from washington americans on the other hand are not too happy with what they get in return for their billions to support governments or large ones when we say enough is enough most governments lie each other that's the way business gets done i mean the all the cheerleading about bin laden's killing the u.s. has stepped up drone strikes in pakistan our. caucus. in
3:18 am
karaoke that result because of the drone strikes. missed like the taliban and al qaeda and other groups in pakistan to recruit new members and they're doing that. so very washington now sees yemen as the most dangerous all kind of outpost and he's planning to step up drone attacks on the country as a base in the persian gulf specifically for that purpose especially now when bin lon's replacement iman also laurie is thought to be building up al-qaeda is already significant presence in yemen. the u.s. had been cooperated with yemeni counterterrorism forces in targeting al qaida but they've since left the field. pre-occupied is that with the nationwide turmoil against the sollie regime that means the americans are likely to have a freer hand going it alone with the cia to take a central role because the agency is not subject to the accountability the us
3:19 am
military is legally under expect more bombs to fall on yemen when the us starts to get people who are numbers a lot by the new arabian peninsula then i think the real worry is that it expands this war to the point where so many people join up with al qaeda their security yemen over the killing of scores of civilians by the drone strikes in one attack there the american military presumably aiming at an al qaida training camp ended up killing dozens of women and children in another strike a year ago a drone mistakenly killed a deputy governor in yemen his family and eight with the expansion of the wrong war it seems that was the thinking only a misnomer the fighting al qaida analysts say one of the main features of this new all the great smart not having to make it work on the fourth of the week and that their money and the lack of accountability when it comes to the city and that peter is that he had more paradox in the last strategy to me where the america is
3:20 am
fighting and fostering terror at the same time i am going to check out with forty. are. we going to have a child with a rare in the sabin disease so every parent's worst nightmare that treatment exists should be a welcome relief but in russia any hopes are dashed by extortionate costs the lack of state support worker plans on the whole price can be put on the child's life. the first match followed in february of this year fourteen according to his birth certificate he looked half that his hearing was rapidly declining his vision almost gone he responded only to this strokes of his mother who gave up everything to care for him. happy just to wake up and see him breathing sometimes he smiles and it's the greatest thing for me. he wasn't always this way but age of
3:21 am
five he knew the point his mother is really into him now by heart he was active in a faction and he like cats and talked about being a driver then step by step his house began to deteriorate his mother rushed from one doctor to another until last year he was finally diagnosed with hunter syndrome a genetic condition that means his body can't get rid of toxins it's extremely rare and extremely expensive to treat. without treatment doctors say he may soon die if we get the drug his body will be slowly clean stop the toxins may be able to walk again and play and enjoy life like other kids serially all costs were bought it was almost eight hundred thousand dollars beyond comprehension for you lana is hasn't left the family with the first signs of the disease ship it to shouldn't all sorts of organizations it was about to see the local authorities when in april they finally agreed to provide the money for the drug back then they speak of paper same
3:22 am
coldest license to life. when i got this letter i was so hopeful it meant that my child would live. there waiting for weeks then months in early june of oldest health took a turn for the worst and he died never having seen the promised drug. most people agree that losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a parent but he got assessed it's not the worst thing for her to leave the rest of her life knowing that her child could have been saved but the treatment was there and these exorbitant money was found in tape or administrative procedures whatever you call it. was never given a chance. to say there was absolutely no way to speed things up their own region where you live and lease is an impoverished mostly agricultural province in central
3:23 am
russia but what is treatment would have accounted for about a quarter of all how for cities but here in college interest for the treatment of this boy in monetary terms is equivalent to almost all cancer surgeries in our region and we're talking about thousands of people yet we still made a decision to allocate this money but before this we need to conduct some budget restructuring and to hold attended by it now these procedures are almost complete and we expect the drug to be here by the end of june or it's already too late for how to follow to erowid he didn't mind the save in not only the boy spirit kilometers to the south seventy year old peter was also diagnosed with conscious syndrome yet he still has a few years before the damage becomes that wrapper bill is parents believe to save their son he has to step in the bodies and the whole. family can deal with this disease on its own the cost of the drug is simply unreal
3:24 am
the local authorities often refused to cover the costs of this one i think the state house to house. out of about two hundred fifty children of a country syndrome in russia less than half are receiving medical treatment that's a postcode lottery available in reach or areas like moscow and almost unimaginable in poorer towns and that despite the fact that when it comes to citizenship they are all supposed to be playing on this same. kind of work. but it is a feeble crossover to dimitry for the systems. it
3:25 am
was good to have your company you watching doesn't seem. to join the world trade organization is coming to an end so the outstanding issues will be resolved by the end of july if talks pass off smoothly russia will join to its national trade club by december the u.s. official believes russia's membership will be beneficial both for the country and the global economy. in fact russia's accession to the w t o would actually bring new opportunities for us and supporters and u.s. workers russia is the world's tenth largest economy but only after thirty seventh largest export market. it's expanding middle class will likely soon make russia the largest retail market in europe russian accession to the. americas farmers and ranchers with improved access to russia's one hundred forty million consumers a russia that is more integrated into the global economy which supports and it
