6:02 am
oliver who is following this developing story for us peter do we know anything more about how this. tragedy happened. well the pieces are starting to come together throughout the day what we do know is that this type of to you on three four plane on its way from here accommodated airport in moscow. in the northwest of the country crash landed about a kilometer away from its intended final destination crash on the runway breaking into pieces before catching on fire now the plane came very close to actually sliding into a row of houses fortunately it stopped short of doing otherwise because you would have been many many more now since the plane didn't crash land it was unable to land the airport the first people on the scene were the emergency services they were people who live nearby people who were passing by at the time and we've been hearing some some stories of true heroism from those who were first on the scene helping those stricken in the fall of the aircraft. three people
6:03 am
each one was either. you could not sell which was larger than the man was hard to see was dark and there was a man he also was unhappy he was launched on me and we carried out two more people from the wreckage in the middle of the road another man reached out to san told. him everything he saw says explosion i could not getting you closer everything was engulfed by five story. of the flight recorders have been removed from the scene of the crash in the process of trying to work out exactly what caused the space to crash is under way now what we do know is that the plane clipped treetops as well as severing power lines on its way down below seven power lines triggered a blackout on the runway for several seconds before the emergency power kicked in and we don't know whether those seconds that the lights were out and the runway was
6:04 am
in a blackout whether those were the crucial seconds that meant that the pilots had to make a decision to force the. emergency landing now the emergencies ministry here in russia continuing to carry out this investigation to try and find out what happened and they aren't ruling out any possibilities right now. the investigators continue their work at the site of the tragedy that debris there is spread across a three hundred meter radius the flight recorder has already been found communication recordings are being analyzed forensic analysis is being carried out looking into several versions of what caused the tragedy these include the human factor such as an air of the crew or the ground services severe weather conditions technical failure and several other potential causes. peter what are we hearing from experts about these various different theories. this is important to realize this investigation is in its infancy we can only go on the
6:05 am
facts that we have we have the footage that we've seen of it if the plane clipping treetops we know it's a downed power lines and we know it was forced to make a crash landing but the experts who looked into these type of crashes before their initial opinion is that this was caused by pilot error and they've actually gone as far as to draw comparisons between this crash and the crash last year which killed polish president lech kaczynski so they are in their opinion off what they've seen so far as this quote could have been caused by an error in the cockpit. which i don't think anything would go along with. it in future years of operation the triple one three four has to do extremely reliable their craft in previous catastrophes human error was always to blame and the same is true here the pilot should have made a second landing approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane course. we know that eight people have survived this crash what are we
6:06 am
hearing about their condition. where they're currently receiving medical treatment . six of them have been told that they can be flown back here to moscow to continue that medical treatment however some of these people are in a very critical condition and that's what we're hearing from doctors that say this plane crash landed on a highway broke into pieces before catching on fire they're being treated for the injuries caused by the us impact and also for burns from the from the fire that broke out now among those that survived are a nine year old boy his fourteen year old sister and their mother now they're the lucky ones who we spoke before about the the heroism of those people in order to pull them from the wreckage unfortunately forty four people killed in this crash. the relatives of those who lost their lives have started gathering here it's already out of the airport in moscow they've been receiving grief counseling from the emergencies ministry and we're hearing that there will be flow into patrols of
6:07 am
maybe to morrow to the site where the crash took place. right now peter all over live from moscow do stay with r.t. as we continue our coverage of this plane crash that occurred in northwest russia throughout the day. to libya now where another deadly nato bombing in tripoli has reportedly killed at least fifteen civilians nato insisted hit a command center but libyan officials say three children are among the dead. a day after the alliance of needed killing up to nine civilians in another air strike which is blamed on a technical failure if the notion of reports from tripoli. and other day has brought more death and destruction to leave here a large private compound west of the capital tripoli has been leveled reduced to rubble in an apparent airstrike. rescuers have discovered the remains of fifteen
6:08 am
people according to leaving officials. the houses destroyed belonged to a general who. one of the people closest to colonel gadhafi he was among those who took part in the military coup to brindle even leaders of power forty one years ago the general escaped injury if most of his family died in the attack. this man is talking about people are 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. attacked in the early hours of this morning killing fifteen people including. children are here and there is still the mothers.
6:09 am
the number is fifteen people nato has denied these claims just as it's never demanded the death of more than eight hundred others believe in government says were killed by their problems the nine people killed in sunday's bombing of a residential building in tripoli remain the only civilian casualties i can all it's by the lines which claimed. technical failure and former pentagon official says the only thing clear of all the nato campaign is the mounting casualties and damage it's inflicting on the even people they try to achieve a certain level of humanitarian effort and initially but the protracted bombing is now increasingly hitting civilian targets and it's creating a very negative reaction i think it does raise the question of what is nato has a role continued role going to be there as the content of those actions increases other voices become more and more than two. of the libyan people.
6:10 am
and it seems that the more anger they feel about nato the more they support their leader. this is the second set was meant. to say was a. challenge. to . the. united states is that this problem. that. you want to deliver out of this is. what's certain is that. dying. treat billy.

any cash into the bailout but they're kind of playing with words really because we've just increased the amount of money we pay to the i.m.f. from ten billion to nineteen billion and if greece defaults and let's face it they are going to focus on the first bailout plan a 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 british taxpayers repaid for 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 to the wall and no more greece must be allowed to leave the eurozone let them have the drug market 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 don't 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. our financial guru max kaiser has his

simply unreal the local authorities often refused to cover the costs for this one thing the state house house to. out of about two hundred fifty children hunter syndrome in russia less than half are receiving medical treatment it's a postcode lottery available in reach or areas like mosco and almost imaginable in poorer towns and that despite the fact that when it comes to this citizenship all supposed to be playing on this c t x artsy. the u.s. has stepped up its drone attacks in pakistan the most recently reported recent reportedly killed at least twelve people over a growing number of civilian deaths in the strikes and sparked public anger concerns the action is driving up the number of extremist recruits and now with reports that the u.s. plans to expand of war to yemeni territory criticism against the strategy is stronger than ever parties going to check out has the story. the u.s.
6:21 am
is looking to expand its war on terror but it's not the under fire. in pakistan a cia drone strikes aim at terrorists but ends up killing mostly civilians public outrage is growing hatred and anger foster more terror if you push them of there's the world then this militancy and terrorism is going to increase this is no more dissolution because if you're attacking them by drones and they're not part of the war they're going to decide 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
6:22 am
we say enough is enough most governments lie to each other that's the way business gets done and meet all the cheerleading about bin laden's killing the us has stepped up drone strikes in pakistan. has done in a number of civilian casualties that result because of the drone strikes. us like the taleban you know. and other groups in pakistan to recruit new members and they're doing that. washington now sees yemen as the most dangerous outpost and he's planning to step up drone attacks on the country as that delish ing of basing the persian gulf specifically for that purpose especially now when bin hans replacement i'm on all the worry is not to be building up all kind has already significant presence in yemen. the u.s. had been cooperate in with yemeni counterterrorism forces in targeting al qaida but
6:23 am
they've since left the field preoccupy. it 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 military is legally under expect more bombs to fall on yemen when the us starts to hit people who are numbers alongside a new arabian peninsula and 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 in yemen over the killing of scores of civilians by the drone strikes in one attack there the american military presumably ming 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 signal the amidst all the fighting on the fly that analysts
