a kilometer twenty four hours later the crash claimed another victim when one of the survivors a young boy died in hospital. when i heard the little boy in the hospital died i was shocked it's awful my late husband was a pilot he had landed planes at this airport many times it's very personal to me. the site of the crash has been cleaned up the roads have been reopened the wreckage of the plane completely removed but there are still career marks evidence like this for us that reminds people of the tragedy that struck on monday night but for those who have been here to witness the horrific scenes they say that those memories are unlikely to go away. i didn't sleep for two days i couldn't even fall asleep i can't recall him people screaming and pulling bodies away from the play. again he was one of the first at the scene his house only metres away from where the plane came down. i heard the explosion and ran outside the lights went out i ran

to the site and we started rescuing people. two women and the pilot he was dead while all the bodies have been recovered the relatives of the victims still have the tough task of identifying their loved ones investigators say all possible scenarios are being looked into but initial reports suggest bad weather and pilot error are the likely causes of the crash a suggestion that didn't sit well with some locals. it's easy to blame the pilot because he's dead i think the airport itself is to blame family and friends are waiting for answers but all they can do now is remember those they've lost deaths are still your r t russia your region. and you can take a closer look at the crash site in northwest russia on a website snapshots from the spot are out there and just go to photo galleries in

4:07 am
daughter because we know that she supports khadafi. these cave has been long and hard for the we were in the family well i remember a lot of that occurred and i had to hide for some time from them as they've been searching for me then we knew there was a bus coming from benghazi to tennessee and the bus with the rebels for their purposes we took that bus with our faces covered and everybody was against gadhafi on it we told them that we were also against him and they lot of sin son was brother dr sabri a surgeon has also fled the city he says they've made three attempts on his life but he only finally left when he saw a killing. take him from or from or from i.c.u. killing him in front of i.c.u. her own good his body on the world that was because the doctor says people from the national transitional council were behind it this is the rebels' official political body that are part of the revolution in libya started in the mid february its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the your
4:08 am
legitimate representatives of libya there is no other venue there will be in you so you will be. where you are again as. they took about freedom democracy there is no freedom or democracy there is just want to bury the refugees here say they now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in the air strike called in to leave and government officials a bomb landed on the private compound and flattened they would kill in fifteen people including three kids this conflict has to come to an end immediately which is very unlikely to happen any time soon the new drug ground in this symmetry is still fresh while nato has already claimed the two your peroration to protect civilians must go on with clashes continue and benghazi and nato intensify in its
4:09 am
bombardment of tripoli both eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to say and people are dying on both sides of the front line many on the ground fear that when the democracy the west talks about will finally come here they'll last me enough people left to experience it. well even though she. might pull it in from the west only one professor lawrence davidson from west chester university in pennsylvania told r.t. that nato has understood from the very beginning that it's humanitarian operation what it adds really bring civilian deaths what this calls into question is the original justification for american intervention which was humanitarian my own personal opinion is that that was always a just a media story for our domestic consumption you cannot enter being anywhere with this level of munitions and not kill civilians so ok you're
4:10 am
going to protect civilians by intervening with the type of munitions that cannot avoid killing civilians and 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 their three in libya and they will project media stories to cover it. and you're wanting to live from moscow still have for you this hour fighting terror was torture. i was forced to agree. and. we meet and it's one time a prisoner who fell victim to unlawful treatment asked why

a european citizens found several years at a tourist camp without trial. plus japan's nuclear disaster under-estimated would visit for a city declared saved by the authorities to find radiation levels there are one thousand times the norm. the leaders have agreed on a new bailout for greece but only after strict budget cuts are imposed the vote on a proposed twenty billion euro is terry plan is expected on wednesday if approved it will also mean and no other tranche of last year's bailout will be handed over to greece the latest developments prompted immediate reaction from euro skeptics who held a mock funeral in brussels for the ailing single currency they argue that attempts to bail out greece are too little to late and that the crisis will help bring about the downfall of the eurozone. if we just keep pumping money into greece
4:12 am
it's only put off the death of their economy they are already bankrupt we have to wake up and smell the coffee and say enough is enough greece she's going to go all in is going to go portugal and of course the big one that everyone is worried about is the state of supply and that is what some of our banks like barclays. buying because clearly the property slump in spain is much bigger than the spanish government is telling people they say they're going to be in a drop of a two percent how the radio shows in spain people of losing seventy percent sixty percent in the value of their homes in their developments spain will be the next one but why should we the u.k. taxpayer pay homage to the german taxpayer pay for the unit she chewed of the greek government. well as a greek crisis unravels public fury continues to spill into the streets of athens another strike is planned to coincide with a hysterically vote next week so serious panic out his electorate at the university
4:13 am
of g. and says the return to national currency could be the way out for greece the problem is we cannot do it we are getting twelve billion lifeline. the biggest part of which is going to be used to repay debt to repay previous dates this is totally absurd it is for the benefit of greek people to have an immediate exit from the euro from the euro zone the euro is a monetary absurdity in a way it's a totally irrational financial and monetary architecture that is also a contributing factor to that crisis and in general to social crisis in greece so i think that going back to a national currency and regaining public control in a way national control of monetary policy is a very necessary step to be taking it is not a road to disaster as the government is saying on the contrary it's going to be
4:14 am
a very positive step. the far right dutch politician geert wilders has been cleared of charges of inciting hatred and discrimination wilders went on trial for comments on islam he made in a public debate he compared the agent to narcissism and cold for a ban on the koran the court ruled the remarks were offensive but didn't break any law and i graciously sentiment is on the rise in europe with a huge or maybe even friday to tighten border controls within the union member of the european parliament philip klein says was multicultural politics failing it may be time for more radical solutions. we've always been told that multiculturalism and was going to be great and was going to solve a lot of problems on the contrary it has become a problem in itself and it's very important that everyone should be able to you know to put forward his own solutions to the problem and that it is balanced and free debate people from outside of europe who come to any country in the european
4:15 am
union shoot themselves to the local malls the local way of living as a romans do and this is very important multiculturalism you know and reality does not work in europe we are seeing big problems in major cities major capitals in western europe where we see power societies that have emerged you know with so many people who don't feel they have to do that themselves to the way of living in the country they went to and so this has to change i think we need a much more restrictive immigration and integration policy. well you can find more opinions on that story on our website r t v dot com let's take a look at what else is available for you in line right now. i russian gymnastics champion and duma deputies named one of the world's sexiest politicians by an american newspaper see who else made the list. of maybe summertime in
4:16 am
russia but it seems the winter fun is always welcome find out why moscow's famous quarter park is offering and seasonal activities this weekend. the official. from the. palm of your. call. it will now be easier for russian political parties to win seats in the lower house of parliament as the president has signed a bill lowering the threshold from seven percent to five percent of the votes speaking to the media before the decision we have said it could also be possible to lower that figure to three percent the president said that this is needed to boost political competition and help modernize the country seven percent threshold was
4:17 am
introduced in two thousand and seven by his predecessor was important. well hoping to give that competition some fresh impetus as one of russia's richest man who has set his sights on politics we have brought her up has been elected leader of the right cause party which plans to run into sam parliamentary elections is calling for a more liberal russia but proffer of himself didn't want to call it an opposition party he spoke exclusively to the billionaire says he wants to be the prime minister. i'm not the kind of person who tends to dream or plunges into illusions we have particular goals to get into russia's lower house of parliament with the maximum number of votes what i also understand is that i could be a good prime minister if the party successful i would fight for this position. you know watch that interview in full and sustain a sign here on r.t.e. . dozens of people have been killed in afghanistan in separate bombings over the
4:18 am
past two days the attacks followed the announcement by president obama off his troop withdrawal strategy the latest attack on a hospital in eastern afghanistan left at least thirty five dead with some reports putting the death toll at sixty and in another part of the country a bomb exploded at a market killing ten of one thing over twenty on wednesday president obama announced a withdrawal of a third of u.s. troops by the end of next year some military commanders within the u.s. say the plan is risky and are advising them much smaller reduction lawrence korb from the center for american progress think tank says the pullout should go ahead as planned because afghan insurgents don't threaten u.s. national security. the military always is against any type of withdrawal and they want to slow it down as much as they can president obama has all the things then just you know the advice of the military has got an economic situation needs to keep the support of the american people even our military commanders say there's no military solution you're going to have to negotiate with the taliban and i think
4:19 am
this withdrawal more significant than our generals want sends a signal to the taliban that we're not occupiers that you know we're not going to stay there forever and it's a good time to talk to them because this is you know when you have the maximum amount of troops and by the end of this year worlds you know be down to only ninety thousand bergolla has to prevent afghanistan from being used as a launching pad for attacks on the united states and its allies and from destabilizing the region i don't think anybody in our country would like to tell a band to come back but if they do that doesn't impact our national security interests. the u.s. has stepped up its drone attacks in pakistan the latest killing at least twelve on monday but a growing number of civilian deaths in the strikes to spark public anger with concerns the action is driving up the number of extremist recruits and now with reports that the u.s. plans to expand its drone war on yemeni territory criticism against a strategy stronger than ever r.t. is going as you can reports. the u.s.
4:20 am
is looking to expand its war on terror but its methods are under fire. in pakistan cia drone strikes aim at terrorists but end up killing mostly civilians public outrage is growing hatred and anger foster more terror if you push them against the wall then it this militancy and don't use them 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 there are good ones 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 how often do we support governments or large
4:21 am
ones when 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. and pakistan in a number of civilian casualties that result because of the drone strikes are eyeing extremists like the taleban. in other groups in pakistan to recruit new numbers and they're doing that i. accelerated pace washington now sees yemen as the most dangerous al qaida 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 swear placement i'm on also ari is not to be building up as already significant presence in yemen. the us had been cooperated with yemeni counterterrorism forces in targeting al qaida but they've since left the field
4:22 am
preoccupied. instead 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 members of all quiet in the 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 there's fury in yemen over the killing of scores of civilians by the drone strikes in want to tack 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 drone war its influence is seeking only in the south of the fighting on the night i can only
4:23 am
say some of them may be terrorism this is all the bases are not having taking down the force of the faith and that their mommy and the lack of accountability when it comes to feel that the church that had more carried on the west rather well that mary-kate body and bomb terror at the same time i am going to check our reporting. are. learning lessons from the japanese crisis that was the key point of a five day nuclear form that and that in vienna on friday but how do their findings match up to reality thomas went to city just outside the twenty kilometer no go zone to witness the deadly legacy of the disaster for himself. the ominous and constant ticking of geiger counters has scientists working in fukushima city concerned. i'm in charge of the group of radiation detection and survey from fukushima university where now thinking their vacation protocol and process set up by the japanese government is not enough and myself i think i should
4:24 am
evacuate from this area but because of my job at the university i can't my family and my friends' families are evacuating. officially fukushima city is in a safe area eighty kilometers from the day to plant reactor one and a full sixty kilometers outside the band danger zone but still radiation levels here are much higher than normal. just to give you an idea of the consistency right now the dagger count is really really quite two nine a micro ring it's about thirty times what it is more than the accepted level but if you come down here to where it just sort of a lot of it collected the radio can quickly jumped out but it's still climbing earlier we got a reading of the night and now i look at my career which is about a thousand times more than one of the accepted level of a little. but in order to claim that fukushima is truly safe from leaking radiation the japanese government has had to be creative with the numbers more the government
4:25 am
did they change the redish a quantum level standard the levels from one. to twenty million per year to twenty times. the. standards before the accident and now. they raise the. the standard so that they can say it's safe but actually the standard has changed the new higher levels mean that fukushima can be classed as being outside of the exclusion zone some say that evacuating the city would be simply impractical given the huge numbers of people affected to try and mitigate the circumstances to some degree a group of scientists have teamed up to find a simple ways to reduce the radiation levels. we're just trying to do a project and do d.d. contamination. by ourselves and we are not to using
