11:03 pm
our correspondent goes down off was it should imagine the airport as the tragic events unfolded. after midnight the officials have finally decided to come out and update us journalists as to what the latest has been when it comes to this tragedy i mean the most important bit we've heard from the russia's investigative committee confirming the official number of those deceased in the tragedy and that number is forty one and here is the latest as to what the representative of russia's investigative committee had to say have a listen in miami and the rescue operation has ended and the investigative committees continue to work at the scene of the accident so this is a chairman airport response with me all of the injured received immediate medical assistance of seventy eight passengers and crew onboard thirty seven survived and forty one have died. now also we've been handed out official lists of those who survived this tragedy i mean this is what the local like it is just russian
11:04 pm
names and the numeration just to give us an idea as to how many made it out alive and the figure is world twenty eight people have been well more or less on the harm to judging by this list and at least five people have had to be taken to hospital to receive medical attention we've heard from russia's health minister is what she said that she was there when it was most of the summer the suffered from burns gas inhalation or other injuries all medical services who responded quickly now we've also heard from the official representative of the floor of the company operating this sukhoi superjet who said that the evacuation was done in the well under the probe protocol time that was about fifty five seconds while the protocol time the acceptable time to evacuate all passengers in case of a emergency of this kind is ninety seconds now when it comes to what happened on
11:05 pm
board here is the understanding of the time line we have. so far the super super jet operated by air flow it took off from sheremetyevo airport and shortly after that apparently was had by a lightning now we get we're getting this information from at least two sources one attributing and unconfirmed report can attribute in this information to the flight crew and another one we talked to one of the passengers who does seem to recall a white bright flashes that he went out and then apparently the crew decided to make a turn around and landed back at the sheremetyevo airport now apparently event lightning strike sent all the communications systems offline so the crew had no contact with the ground and this partially explains i mean if this is true this is this partially explains what happened next now mind that all of that was happening thirty to forty minutes after takeoff which means that the fuel tanks of this super
11:06 pm
super jets were full and not these not boeing's not era buses they're not designed to allow and did this heavy on fuel so the procedure is to burn out to circle around the city to burn out the excess fuel why they didn't happened probably because the crew was going in blind they had no directions from the ground so the aircraft attempted an emergency landing which turned into a crash landing so the aircraft did hit the tarmac at least twice it did they did plane couldn't land from the first attempt so we'd hoped of from the ground and then when the back again harder this time and that's one apparently the shasta's they went into the fuel tanks and remember plenty of fuel to be caught a blaze and all the pictures of this aircraft running along the tarmac with all of its tail set ablaze now we've heard from some of the witnesses from some of the
11:07 pm
people who saw a. the tragedy unfold have a listen. to the fire broke out after the plane hit the ground when landing when the plane was in the air i saw a white flash it must have been lightning you want about the tragedy in the media and immediately went to the airport hoping to get information about a friend who was on the plane it's very hard for people waiting to hear the fate of their loved ones but everyone is trying to hope for the best. it was quite unexpected we had a flight so you catherine went to the gate a little earlier so as not to be late with the window i just turned my head and all of a sudden i saw the burning plane with huge plumes of black smoke for fighters arrived at the scene within two minutes they started fighting the fire they didn't show signs of panic as the plane was too close to those that were waiting on the runways we didn't know it was landing it looked like it was just fifty meters from the nearest aircraft. but if this plane was landing engulfed in
11:08 pm
a terrible fire firefighters were quickly on the scene but i couldn't see being evacuated from where i was in the terminal. so now i am at the share a major port and if you just look behind me and. the security service the security service of the share major airport but if you just turn around the corner that's where the relatives and the friends of those passengers who were on board of that flight have been gathered and apparently there's like a whole center stablished there are designed to help them cope with what happened today basically emergency ministries. just excuse me psychologists are working with them as of now now when it comes to this airport i mean again take a nother look behind me it's just the security services and i don't know if you can hear if you can see them but it's t.v. crews very very few passengers here doesn't look anything like the major.
11:09 pm
normally is a major major area of moscow so that's because this right after the tragedy this airport was shut down with only one emergency runway left operational so it means that all of the inbound flights to this airport had to be handled handled elsewhere for instance three other russian airports they have been trying to help out and to take some of the load over the sheremetyevo airport but of course they can't take all the planes so some of them as we heard on speakers the announcements some of them were landed in other russian cities like surat of or petersburg others landed even abroad like in minsk belarus or in helsinki finland so all of that all of that is going on while the mergence the services and are stationed out there
11:10 pm
we have at least two ambulances still out there outside this terminal ready to provide. ready to provide their services or to anyone who might require them we've seen motorcades of all sorts of official vehicles from medics student to the investigative committee to the security services of flocking in rolling into this airport all of that while the investigators are still examining the site from what we can understand and just trying to determine the cause of the tragedy lattimer putin has been briefed on this and he's demanded swift and fair results swift and clear results from this from this investigation all of that while the investigators are working on site and talking to the relatives friends and passengers. the sukhoi superjet one hundred is a short to medium hold passenger airliner the plane involved in this disaster was built in twenty seventeen with capacity for ninety eight passengers its range is up
11:11 pm
to four thousand six hundred kilometers one hundred eighty six planes of the same model are currently in service with various airlines and we spoke to several experts who gave us their views on the potential causes of the tragic fire at sheremetyevo airport. fire is always the most critical thing that can happen on board an airplane in flight it requires any firefighting to believe the airplane has on board and a very quick return to land at the airport in this incident it seems that the pilot a remarkable job to get the airplane back to the airport landing on the runway and with apparently no direction for america to control so imagine the situation in the cockpit they're dealing with an onboard fire failure their communications capability to air traffic control and then try to return and land safely at the airport or at least on the airport premises. that is about the most difficult
11:12 pm
situation i can imagine for those pilots facing that situation on that flight it could have been a much worse situation if they did not make it back to the airport and crashed in the surrounding neighborhood. it would have been complete fatalities on board that aircraft the good news with landing on on the airport is that they had the full rescue capability of the airport there. deal with the on board fire after landing and that they were able to safely evacuated as many hazards as possible through the escape slides in the forward part of the aircraft though as a tremendous benefits everyone on board. the landing is heavy enough that it would have to really be a very very hard landing the landing gear itself to go through the structure or the fuel is just a. sea radically you could have a fire that the landing gear it collapse and it was literally riding on the back
11:13 pm
of the airplane down the road fire on an airliner is this really one of the worst possible of this for the crew to say no way to fight the materials in the airplane are. largely plastic and fabric and they burn readily even if they're protected in some small way from propagation and so it's an extremely dangerous emergency and requires an immediate return or i will tell you that according to the information again it's very preliminary the pilots had put on what's called the seventy seven hundred on their electronic equipment that's a signal especially if communications are loss that there's an emergency the other thing i noticed looking at the radar was the airplane made a circle first not to approach a city airport but a circle away from the airport to lose an altitude the floor it landed that tells
11:14 pm
me there was at least in the crew's mind a very serious a murder siri quire name to get on the ground quickly. this is a myriad of situations you can both engines operating did they have smoke or fire in onboard the aircraft was there. smoke in the cockpit what was the emergency did they have that that's why it's really so critical to be able to listen to the noises the sounds the voice recordings and all the instrumentation parameters and see those parameters through the flight recorder and the flight the voice recorder to see what happened it could be a lot of different things but it's also interesting that apparently they landed on the second approach if there was a fire aboard the aircraft you want to get that airplane on the ground as soon as possible you can play real air. this is all going to be critical how did they
11:15 pm
handle that when they trained to handle these types of situations they're going to be the investigating regulatory agencies that are going to be investigating the accident are going to be looking at not only the stress. components of the aircraft manufacturer. certification of the aircraft but the training of the pilots. a recap of what we do know so far forty one people have been confirmed dead after a plane burst into flames during about agency landing here in moscow on sunday evening a passenger plane operated by aero frothed was you to fly to move them on skin and fall north of the country there are thirty seven confirmed survivors from the flight many are being treated for smoke inhalation injuries investigators have launched a criminal probe into possible safety violations and keep you updated on this developing story here not to you as well as on our website.

11:21 pm
anough palestinian israeli lives have been lost people injured houses damaged and destroyed it is time to deescalate and return to the understanding that the past few months before it's too late journalists rami ahmed gharyan political analyst mitchell. views on the latest escalation between israel and gaza. both the hamas and islamic jihad or are excellent in using human shields you know launching their operations from schools and from apartment buildings and from civilian centers and hoping that the israelis will not retaliate or that the israelis will be concerned with possible civilian casualties every civilian casualty is certainly a tragedy but the state of israel has to take its citizens and has to protect its borders and for that some very very serious measures are being taken against the military infrastructure in gaza the government of gaza is the hamas it's a terror organization it's defined as a terror organization by both the united by both the european union and united
11:22 pm
states and against a terror organization everything goes so they keep testing israel along the way how many rockets can they fire how many civilian israelis can be killed before israel does something but israel has fully clean hands in this endeavor and will continue to pummel gaza and to destroy any terrorist infrastructure hopefully no civilians will be killed in the process but israel is protecting its population this is something that is. intensely and drab and lee in the region who the time being and this could in laws into a larger scale attack by the israelis and intensity of will be seen between the two sides but you know is that israeli israeli air strikes and israeli attacks on the gaza strip have been used to be march more intense much
11:23 pm
more brutal a much more rust in this against the palestinians israel has the most sophisticated army and the world the more sophisticated weaponry pinpoint attacks being carried out by israel for the time being and israel you. this is a very sophisticated technology military technology to attack palestinians the casualties among palestinians are very high and the palestinians are paying a very high price for. an israeli tank shelling against gaza that is ongoing saw there is some kind of disproportionate disproportionate. scale there's a proportionate scale of attacks by palestinians and israelis. if you just joining us a reminder of the tragedy at russia's largest port where forty one people have been confirmed killed after
