6:03 am
certainly had the windows i just turned my head and all of a sudden i saw the burning plane with huge plumes of black smoke. i am. sitting. in the studio with me now is a correspondent. pretty horrific scenes that we've been watching there we've always keeping across the story what developments of that being. well bits in pieces are
6:04 am
emerging putting them together the investigators and authorities are coming out with the statements we heard from the pilot according to him. everything was fired during takeoff all systems checks the aircraft was in perfect condition they took off and mere minutes into their ascent. by lightning and that is when that is when things went very bad because first off it knocked out many of the electronic systems on board including communications gear so we're talking here about radios and even backup radios. we had no communication we managed to restore it through the emergency frequency on the second radio station and it was intermittent that is after turning on the transmitter it was only possible to say a few words before losing contact and having to reconnect the dispatches helped us they gave us directions to get to the runway. what would prove to be even worse is
6:05 am
that this lightning strike whatever malfunction that it caused it took down many other electronic systems like guidance like otoh pilot pilot assist all sorts of systems that are designed to get an aircraft down safely compounding all of that is that the aircraft was very heavy and it just taken off it had all its fuel on board and for whatever reason they decided to land the aircraft instead of doing circles above the airport around moscow in order to burn off some fuel to lighten the aircraft and make the landing easier so they went down heavy with passengers seventy three passengers and all that fuel and. perhaps it was due to pilot error perhaps it was juta the lightning strike the systems been deactivated the way whatever the aircraft tail section ended up bumping the runway numerous times
6:06 am
then surely it. you know the inferno started it. burned through the back half of the aircraft it must have punctured the fuel tanks and you know fuel spilled all over the back section but the aircraft came to a standstill it came to a stop and people this is this is the really horrible part because now that they were down safely people were suddenly faced with flames on all sides especially in the back section and it was incredibly hot this fuel burns very very high. but illuminates it started melting you know these people had seconds seconds left and we heard. really heartfelt stars or people fight passages thanking the crew cabin crew for saving their lives the stewardess pulling people out by the cuffs of their necks another in the back section of the plane unfortunately he perished he tried
6:07 am
to get the doors open to get people out through the back section he was unable to do that so he started pushing people from the back in order to get them out quicker unfortunately many of those in the back didn't make it out forty one casualties only thirty seven people survived many in hospital with burns with asphyxiation. the other thing of course is that the gators are looking at exactly what happened so it's important not to jump to any conclusions yet we don't have enough information. there is talking about jumping to conclusions this virus. among the russian public and social media about people coming down. from plane with their things with air bags some people think that they may have held up the evacuation while they were getting their stuff which could potentially lead to casualties but psychologists see a wall don't jump to conclusions we don't know what happened we don't know how they
6:08 am
got out perhaps they have the things already and these people are facing survivor's guilt especially in a situation like this is like lifelong trauma. this is something you know you don't forget and nevertheless as i say let's not jump to any conclusions speculate further wait for the official results we know that investigators have recovered both black boxes we also know that they've now recovered all the bodies and i'm sure they'll be more accurate information emerging imminent. try to confront thank you for the update on that thank you. aviation expert polly told us that there's never just a single reason for accidents like this. because when you get struck by lightning you mean this unit's possible have the airplane checked over in my case and nothing major happened to the airplane we just had it checked by engineers an hour later
6:09 am
we're back in the air but sometimes lightning strike can cause situations like an accident which happens for a number of factors it never happens for one reason it's usually six or seven things that line up i mean obviously this is a new airplane you know where the very first crashes on this side of the ground craft and so we should all be looking into that as well see if there's any flaws in the design just like the seven three seven max that we got two crashes recently and they found some flaws in. the manuals and that you're dealing with to say hey we should go it. costs live now to dunk or to his. emergency hospital don firstly can you explain to us how many patients the hospitals managed to take in and what kind of condition those patients are in. while in the euro behind me is the hospital where two survivors of the crash are being cared for in critical condition another seven people are hospitalized in

other locations around the city in total thirty seven out of seventy eight passengers and crew successfully escaped the flames last night although many sustaining serious injuries now the russian health minister is supposed to give a broader statement later today but earlier she talked about some of the main causes of some of these injuries. this is just playing it was most of the some of the suffered from burns gas inhalation or other injuries own medical services who responded quickly. across social media people have released videos of p. of people fleeing from the burning jet crewmembers carried out the evacuation quite quickly but you can see in the videos how chaotic the situation was there's also other reports of people spread. bling for their luggage which also contributed to the discord now this is how one woman described awaiting news of her friend who was on that flight. you know you know the tragedy in the media and immediately went to

6:16 am
palestinian rocket. attacks on the palestinians are very destructive and that it winning for the population highrises are being reduced to rubble people in the streets are being hit what while they are on motorcycles own cars even on the ground in the fields including mothers and their toddlers 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 protect 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 over back in

all middle of the room sick. and. welcome back to the program north korea's surprise that missile tests in the sea of japan over the weekend have failed to trigger the fire and fury one might have expected from donald trump u.s. state secretary mike pompei although insinuated that russia played a role. right after he spoke if i don't know he made the decision to take these actions we're still evaluating the appropriate response but i want everyone your audience to know we're going to exhaust every diplomatic opportunity rest all teens
6:19 am
eagle is a dollar for looks at why the response has been so meted. north korea a country that says it doesn't want anyone paying attention to what's going on there yet at the same time secretly can't get enough of the spotlight look test we did a test deadly scariness silos and everyone did look and also glanced at donald trump the afficionado of name calling expecting one of his north korea one liners like these little rocket man mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place is a sick puppy rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself rocket should have been handled a long time ago. yet everyone expecting a measuring contest was in for a surprise to the missiles and even the size of kim's button don't seem to bother the white house any more that we still believe that there's an opportunity to get a negotiated the hope that this act that he took over the weekend won't get in the
6:20 am
way we want to get back at the table anything in this very interesting world is possible but i believe that kim jong un fully realizes the great economic potential of north korea and will do nothing to interfere or end it he also knows that i am with him and does not want to break his promise to me deal will happen ok let me go through this again is it about north korea chuck is it about something militaristic check is trump still the president of the united states chuck so what's wrong well it could be about the timing and the fact that the once hate to do is turning into a love triangle a couple of weeks ago russia's president vladimir putin had his first ever meeting with kim jong and among other things the north korean leader asked putin for this. german king also read directly to tell us about his position and about the
6:21 am
questions he has in connection with the situation on the korean peninsula. there's no way of telling your flood of. the message john but he certainly had the perfect chance one trumpet dialed him last week and they stayed on the line for a good ninety minutes north korea definitely being among the talking points so when your relationship is going downhill maybe it's a good idea to get a third opinion. with the crisis in venezuela simmering and russia's foreign minister is set to discuss the situation with his american counterpart later on monday on the sidelines of the arctic forum in finland on the agenda will be the alleged attempt by the west bank and the swale an opposition leader at a media conference on sundays and venezuela's foreign minister both stressed that dialogue is key. we are not venezuelan partners agree that any use of force circumventing the un charter and the un security council may have catastrophic
6:22 am
consequences for the entire structure of modern global security as any nation venezuelans themselves could only decide their own fate through peaceful dialogue within the scope of the constitution this was another attempt at violence by the venezuelan opposition president nicolas maduro insists that dialogue remains the only option unlike those who voiced the u.s. position which says all options are on the table who believe the only way is to respect the u.n. charter preserve peace in venezuela and not violent or forceful overthrow of the regime. meanwhile venezuelan soldiers have been making a display of their loyalty to present her burning a copy of a letter from opposition leader why don't handed to them by some of his supporters . the mayor put it in discussed in venezuela crisis with donald trump by phone with the u.s. president saying the chat with his russian counterpart had been positive. trying to have efforts to break
6:23 am
a promise while is deadlock. what if all the key stakeholders don't only talk on the phone but get to meet maybe even more than once and actually end up agreeing on something might come pale and serve don't get in touch that often nowadays but just last week they were on the phone and there you have it they're meeting face to face just a few days after vladimir putin and donald trump didn't talk for about five months after the g. twenty in argentina last week it was time to get back to business the two presidents were on the phone for more than an hour he is. not looking at all to get involved in venezuela other than he'd like to see something positive happen for venezuela. and i feel the same way so we want to help with a humanitarian basis and i thought it was a very positive conversation i had with president putin on venezuela sounds quite
6:24 am
optimistic probably even too much was president putin able to convince him speculation over russia's involvement and as well or is way too overblown wait only the day before we heard this from america's number one diplomat we need to make sure there's not an invasion into israel and yet there's been one. it took place that you wouldn't invaded some time ago the russians have now followed suit and in the meantime mr lab rob was saying this because we've agreed to keep discussing the situation in venezuela but i don't see how we can find a common approach where no policies based on the principles of international law and the u.s. line is to appoint someone as an interim president in another country threaten to use military force along with choking sanctions to overthrow the congress seems. washington is trying to convince the world the way they've been pulling the strings in venezuela has nothing to do with the word coup yet as usual they're leaving all
6:25 am
options on the table including the use of force. military action is possible if that's what's required that's what the united states will do those who are not venezuelan should know is all options are on the table secretary of state is in close contact with the pentagon he was among the officials who were briefed by the u.s. southern command quote unquote on a wide range of military options as the command continues to monitor activities on the ground and as well self-imposed venezuelan leader one of like bill has been hinting he would be happy if washington stepped in militarily and you don't rule out a military intervention because it's entirely clear what the madeira regime is about anyway it's clear for him that would probably be the best case scenario after several failed attempts to get the army on his side. one of why
6:26 am
bill called himself the president of venezuela three and a half months ago and time isn't on his side giving the orders as head of state hasn't yet helped him actually become one president nicolas maduro and his supporters have so far been able to withstand most of the pressure a few more failed attempts to start a coup or energize a genuinely nationwide protest may lead to second thoughts about mr within the opposition whether he'll ever choose to back down himself. that's a tough one speaking of nicolas maduro this man doesn't look like someone who ever be the first one to raise the white flag making concessions though when he's completely pushed to the wall that's more like it. i think. international and. around thirty minutes time update so stay with us.

filmmaker who are about how he tricked those very same elites into eating microwave meals in a shed and coming back for more dollars or more coming up in today's going underground but first british elites is still ruminating on tourism a firing u.k. defense secretary gavin williamson for leaking state secrets for m.s.m. the shadow hanging over williamson is a daily telegraph story about five g. north his spot in killing a quarter of a million in yemen or trying to stop world war three by threatening russia and china and as for new defense secretary penny mordant when it comes to britain's most defense less voting record is for tory cuts credited with killing one hundred twenty thousand she voted against taxing bankers' bonuses and for restricting trade unions and the army the so-called military covenant has a british colonel on what it is and what it means for serving soldiers' families veterans and relatives of the fall of the military covenant is the bond between the new. nation on the soldier one goes to the other in terms of commitment any more

than voted against that government but what about the armed forces governance here explained by that same colonel who now takes orders from the essential thing about a defense that it removes disadvantage the distractions of service life and puts servicemen on a equal plane with their peers and spit in life well his new boss british defense secretary penny morton voted against that government to end this all comes after two previous as went for allegedly breaking the law rather leaking to journalists or sexually harassing them not the mordant is arguably too up on the lore she has been slammed for appearing to lie about european union access and law as for the e.u. bricks it now threatens the breakup of the united kingdom scottish nationalists one another independence referendum in ireland may be reunited but did road to independence actually begin twenty years ago today when scotland and wales first held devolved elections joining me now is the father of evolution britain's former attorney general and former shadow defense minister lord morris lord morris welcome back to going underground before we get to well stephen lucian there i got to talk
6:30 am
about our defense secretary gavin williamson and to resume the minority government leader sacking him in the most extreme way possible accusing him of credit being a traitor what was your take on it well i haven't read the letter and it seems that the prime minister thought she had very strong evidence she also adds in the next sentence there's no credible alternative which i thought weakens the sentence. i find it astonishing. anybody has leaked from such a high powered committee. and. claims that he should be prosecuted which obviously there may well be an offense here. the difficulty is in succeeding on a prosecution because no journalist worth his salt will reveal what he's been told all that he has been told.
