three people. which was launched within the month. then there was a man. who was launching. people from the wreckage in the middle of the road another man reached. me. everything. i could. everything was. so very. now on the plane there were four foreigners there was one swede a dutchman as well as two ukrainians as well as a family of four were dual citizenship and there was also a football referee and by the name of. work for the russian premier league now as to exactly what happened local investigators here as well as those that have flown in from moscow don't want to stick to one theory at the moment but there is one. kept coming up at the possibility that the bad weather conditions as
2:02 pm
well as human error could have been the cause this there's a theory that the plane had descended far earlier than it should have it when it was about two hundred meters off course. local ground control had given a statement and had said that they had asked the pilot to make a second approach a lever he had declined and said that he will be able to he would have been able to make the landing however of course he didn't and according to some initial reports the plane had hit a five voltage power line which did the lighting system on the actual runway and it took a few seconds for the backup generator to reactivate the lights and when it. was too late. for itself it does have a bad reputation in fact in two thousand and seven the russian air transport minister had said that this model of the plane is obsolete and should have been replaced within a five years now but some of the some experts would argue that in most of the crashed. this being the twenty eighth or the specific model that in most of the
2:03 pm
crashes it's usually a very very revive your factors that lead to a crash and more often than not it's human error. which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane itself in future years of operation that you three four has proved to be extremely reliable aircraft 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 however again it's still too early to come up with one theory and say exactly what had happened what had been the cause the flight recorder the black box had been recovered and has been flown to moscow will be examined there will be listened to and from there we can find out exactly what happened at the last moments before the crash and as for the families of the survivors some of them we were told have been making their way to that as a vodka today and some will come to morrow especially the families of the forty
2:04 pm
four that were killed the bodies are now in morgues as for the republic of korea where. they have declared three days of mourning in respect for those who have been killed as well as the survivors now the four forty four boy that were killed also get insurance from all of them were insured for a two million rubles that's about seventy one thousand u.s. dollars and those that have survived i will also get some financial aid from authorities both moscow authorities and local authorities here are working together to give them all the help that they need and it was still see some of the locals actually here just a trickling in trying to see what's going on some of them carrying flowers bringing them to the site to sort of reporting on the accident last night will christian. says there are too many factors to pinpoint an exact cause of the crush. you know there's all sorts of factors come into the story one of those is whether they're
2:05 pm
getting the right sort of information from the ground controllers that we're putting in question with getting the right sort of weather information and what about some other key points. and also whether they were being monitored accurately whether the controllers were keeping track on the aircraft heights and so on because of course around airports we know where the various obstacles are to have an impact on the safety of a landing or a takeoff so provided they had all that information given to them then there should have been routing monday. come every few minutes of the program when fighting terror brings more terror u.s. drone attacks in pakistan and yemen keep claiming civilian lives causing an uproar among locals and sent them into the arms of the taliban. just a day after admitting killing nine civilians in a bungled airstrike nato has been accused by the libyan authorities of causing at least another fifteen deaths the alliance confirmed that it carried out another
2:06 pm
bombing but it's not responded to those allegations of civilian casualties that is rare financial reports now from tripoli and now the day has brought more death and destruction to leave a large private come pound west of the capital tripoli has been leveled reduced to rubble in apparent as strike. rescuers have discovered the remains of fifteen people according to libyan officials one of. the houses destroyed belonged to general moody 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 years ago the general escaped injury but most of his family died in the attack. because. this man is talking about little al who will be one of the grandchildren of the general and one of three kids killed in the
2:07 pm
incident the day of the bombing the family had gathered with friends to celebrate his fourth birthday. libyan civilians. we're attacked in the airlie hours of this morning killing fifteen people including. children are up. there is the mothers. but. the number is fifty and. nato has denied these claims just as it's never debated the death of more than eight hundred eleven government says were killed by their bombs the nine people killed in sunday's bombing of a residential building in tripoli remain the only civilian casualties i can buy the alliance which blamed 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 people they try to achieve
2:08 pm
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's role continued role going to be there as discontented actions increases other voices become more and more than. the voices of the libyan people. and it seems that the more anger they feel about nato the more they support a leader. this is seventy that. was a. challenge. to . the. united states
2:09 pm
is that this god. that. you want to deliver out of this is. what is the. dying. well for analysis of nato actions in libya what's in store maybe for the war torn country let's not talk to lawrence davidson of festivities history thanks for being on the line with us on r.t. as our correspondent said in that report that nato is actions in libya it appears on winning of mind instead they have paid if it comes to twenty people support for gadhafi what they didn't want over three months on should there be a change of strategy. well it depends upon where you're getting your news you know your program admirably concentrates these sometimes the
2:10 pm
victims of the nato attacks the media in my neighborhood never does. so the american people don't realize that the side of the story. yes and the one side that comes out ahead unfortunately usually is the side that can kill more people than the other side. but i think that what this calls into question the original justification for american intervention which was humanitarian my own personal opinion is that that was always a just a media story for domestic consumption you can either intervene anywhere with this level of munitions and not kill civilians so ok you're going to protect civilians by intervening with the type of munitions that cannot
2:11 pm
avoid killing civilians and the military of course no instance. what about what happened last night the family of gadhafi is close a fell victim to the latest airstrike it seems plato codd quite get to gadhafi where they say they're not purposely out to kill him well that they don't want to stand that power do you think you know because it seems they are striking at those close to him in. stead oh absolutely and if they could kill gadhafi they would and they're but the type of munitions that they're using whether these are armor you know piloted aircraft or drones like in the afghanistan i mean you cannot avoid it you can't these are not smart weapons whatever they might say there and if you're going to attack a building and you know in a urban environment you don't know you know there's a margin for error it's a large and you're going to kill civilians there it's just they know that they know that and they've only admitted to go to one but you know that there has to be more
2:12 pm
well what about the other question mark about the initial idea that the big no boots so the nato said there would be not a lot wouldn't be happening to take a closer to that now well there are groups on the ground there's not a lot of them but there are the british and there are american cia people. in that and there are british trainers and what have you so there are troops on the ground the point the point is that i'm think that nato and its commanders and the president and the politicians involved in this are beyond a point of no return so they simply cannot stop in terms of their own mind what they've invested in this and therefore they will end up doing whatever is necessary to secure victory in libya and they will project media stories to cover it and i think that's what's going to happen lawrence we touched
2:13 pm
on the two sides to every story earlier all the as the civilian deaths go up in libya is that it would you think ever going to be held accountable for the no deaths no should they be oh of course they should be but just like in afghanistan i mean they're already in iraq. in the united states there are many many people who george bush and companions held accountable for her for a century waging an unnecessary war that's not going to they're being protected. so they obviously are so that you can commit any kind of crime and as long as. you don't lose out right to war and the other side takes over you're protected or i look at that historical story isn't it i was going to say doesn't history repeat itself laura status and professor of middle east history as you are thank
2:14 pm
you for your insight on the progress been a pleasure it's my pleasure. ok now the greek government which is trying to push through harsh austerity measures is facing a no confidence vote in parliament later tonight it's survival is a critical first step in securing a new loan from the e.u. designed to prevent its defaulting on its debts and triggering a eurozone crisis eve finance ministers have given two weeks now to force through tax hikes and spending cuts in return for a twelve billion euro lifeline that conditions there are deeply unpopular with the greek public and regardless of the way the vote goes m.e.p. david campbell bannerman of the u.k.'s independence party told me he believes greece's future prosperity rests with the collapse of the year the question is are we throwing good money after money you know how many billions can you throw at this you know the tolerance of the people for carts for extra taxes as we see to greece
2:15 pm
the real trouble over there is trouble in spain and ireland particularly i think it's in major trouble the euro and those have been saying for some time i do believe it will collapse in part or totally. and probably quite shortly but to be honest i think you leave your is a political prism for for countries such as for. and they need to be liberated from their prison recreate their own currencies have devaluation make their exports cheaper make it easier for tourists to visit their countries and they'll get back and on their feet i think they should go back to the drachma i think they need to get out the euro it is a prison for them and to recreate the drachma i know there are no plans at present to do that but of course they can't sort of plan to be until the euro actually fails i think that is the salvation for greece and that's the way it really should go but obviously that's a matter for the greek people that will be decided tonight. and will be covering it
2:16 pm
as well and thoughts about the story too from artie's financial guru max kaiser he says the greeks are big fooled into paying off a debt they're not responsible for to hear more of his thoughts you can catch the man in the scandals about the economic turmoil in greece next and it's also online at r.t. dot com. it's the annual aviation showcase when companies batted out for control of the skies a multi-billion pound deals that the label joy air show is underway outside paris and in the past russia is always had a large presence there but this year it's gone all out with more planes on off than ever before and the super jets been the superstar among the delegation at his request because there. there is the air show russia's role the putting on display its newest development in civil aviation design and that is the same with the project one hundred the super bowl a design. designing that has the right to receive numerous offers for the crowd but the primary goal for this craft is to replace most of the how did it do you one
2:17 pm
fifty forcing t.-u. one thirty fourth just like the one which fell in korea on monday morning and that is the hope of russian and of course the designers of this is going to project are saying that the plane's design has its particular focus on the security systems at the controls so in the. violence we make in the air so it's kind of predicting the air that which could be made by a pilot therefore making the plane a much they turn a deaf to the already existing aircraft however when exactly. this it was a project will enter the fleet of russian aviation companies is not yet known. also making headlines for us tonight tens of thousands of take to the streets of course support of the country president bush. earlier said address the patient promising political reform and a general amnesty for prisoners however the embattled leader gave no sign of stepping down it was the first public appearance of syria's president since the
2:18 pm
uprising began in march. president obama's to announce the scale of u.s. withdrawal from afghanistan on wednesday the speed and size of the pullout is cause divisions with some of the military warning that i'm jus haste will be dangerous around one hundred thousand american troops in the country that we will start next month and concluded twenty four teams and afghan forces take over security. the latest drone attacks in pakistan of reportedly killed twelve people only nine of them confirmed taliban fighters the growing number of civilian deaths that means more angry locals are joining the militants and with the u.s. no turning its attention to yemen to the uproar looks set to become even louder as we report next. the u.s. is looking to expand its war on terror but its methods are under fire in pakistan in the one year that cia drone strikes killed seven hundred civilians but net it only five actual militant leaders. and pakistan
2:19 pm
in the number of civilian casualties that result because of the drone strikes are sharing this like the taliban and al qaeda and other groups in pakistan to recruit new numbers and they're doing that. accelerating pace 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 allied to us when we say enough is enough most governments lie to each other that's the way business gets done in 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 stablish ing a base in the persian gulf specifically for that purpose especially now when bin ladin swer placement iman also ari is thought to be building up as already
2:20 pm
significant presence in yemen. the u.s. had been cooperating with yemeni counterterrorism forces in targeting al qaida but they've since left the field preoccupied instead with their 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 members of all idea 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. yemen over the killing of scores of civilians by the drone strikes in one attack there the american military presumably naming 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 drone war
2:21 pm
it seems to go once the seeking only amidst all the lighting on the lighter can only say some of them make the turns of the wall the braves are not having to look down the list of the leaks and that their mommy and the lack of accountability when it comes to feel that peter is that he had more paradoxically last friday when the american body bomb story here at the same model even got a check out with forty families we've got this will come up for about twenty minutes tonight kate got latest from wimbledon but business next that with katrina . hello and welcome to our tease business bulletin the euro is facing a slow death says former british foreign secretary jack straw even the optimist recognize the currency is vulnerable to shop declines can vaccinate from saxo bank explains how he thinks this will impact on russia. but the thing with russia to
2:22 pm
remember is that no matter what really happens internally it's still regarded for the most part as an emerging market economy and as such as much as are done like to use the fries there is very much the risk on risk off mantra operating within the water financial markets now as with any other emerging market economy when is a general response size. economies and countries such as russia are in favor and that means increased foreign direct investment flow of hot money and as soon as the mood overall turns in the market and there's a risk off sentiment or risk aversion then just as quickly as the money came into russia it flows just as quickly the only thing obviously with the mind differentiate here is that obviously being rich of natural resources oil being predominantly amongst those russia has a slightly different different nature of impact that can play out on its economy so
2:23 pm
while the central bank maintains its policy of raising rights battle inflation and oil stays relatively high and some of its prize russia probably shouldn't feel any more effects all over and above what it's already said. they all price rebounded slightly after losing six percent last week however worries about a possible default by greece a still weighing on crude the country's parliament is due to hold a confidence vote later choose day hold a month to pick a from platts energy agency explains why the small country is having such a big effect on the crude market. we already have a historical event similar to this one we have lehman brothers lehman brothers failed that course the flight from a couple of markets and i general loss of wealth as the loss of wealth occur consumption drop prices fell in two thousand and eight from one hundred forty to
2:24 pm
forty dollars so what happened from ben to me is china has grown more so asia has grown more south america and africa so demand globally contrary to the kind of lehman brothers and now you so much growth so if something serious were to happen in greece that man with again crime in the north that he was what they would continue to be growth even asia and elsewhere the result would make of people who was there but we still have a major problem i don't think we're going to loose sixty percent of the value but imo ten percent or even twenty percent is likely if there is a major default you're. taking a look at the markets now prices reversed from earlier games as traders are on easy about greece's parliamentary confidence vote light sweet is trading at ninety three dollars a barrel and brant is around one hundred ten dollars a barrel but in the u.s.
2:25 pm

2:30 pm
press ourselves if the bomber was not to veto the declaration of a palestinian state would he not face political pressure at home i mean after all there is an election that he wants to when you know every politician is interested in continuing his way but i i think obama really wants peace in the world especially in this region which affects the way in the middle east in the whole of the world in a way so i believe that clearly obama is first of all concerned with the wind being and we're doing of his own people but he's also interested in continuing the missions in the vision the you took upon him so when he took off what is your reading of the relationship between obama and the israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu there were many who stayed there netanyahu is a recent visit there so obama backtracking on water.
