a cornfield without having even time to dump the fuel tanks now check this video from inside that airbus a 321 as it excel waited along the runway with 226 passengers and 7 prevent that seagulls sucked into the engines you see it ever simply didn't have time to wind up with more on thursday's remarkable event from a culture of he was at the scene within the you know. 226 passengers and 7 crew members of ural airlines flight bound for crimea from moscow are celebrating their 2nd birthday the air bus a 321 collided with a flock of birds just shortly after takeoff from the capital's zuckoff ski airport's the captain jameer yusupov had just seconds to make the right decision when he discovered the strike caused engine failure with 16 tons of fuel on board no ability to make it back to the runway he knew that an emergency landing could
2:06 am
result in a catastrophe to show you a bit of parole after we took off the engines became unstable 1st the left one and then the right one we usually simulate the situations when one or 2 engines are off despite all our efforts the plane was going down we realized that we didn't have much time just one or 2 minutes to make a decision in a blink of an either man with nerves of steel decided still land the aircraft in a nearby cornfield without easing. the landing gear and shutting off all power to prevent an explosion and various officials praised the crew for their professionalism during the spine chilling landing as well as for a well organized evacuation that is just a constant we acted in line with our training with similar situations like this before so there were no surprises the passengers were disciplined listen to our instructions and evacuated very quickly they did as we expected there was no panic on board even though the landing was rough the pilot did
2:07 am
a great job he landed the plane really carefully because it's quicker tell us please how do you feel now did you hurt your leg. this is you know it's better than they're lying on the field so everything is rather good the landing was good the final of the did a great job landed the plane on the belly everything he's fine the media was quick to make connections with another such incidents when the loss of life was a virgin thanks to a pilot the miracle on the hudson involving a u.s. airways the aircraft flown by captain chesley sullenberger and jeffrey skiles hit a flock of geese after takeoff from new york city's la guardia airport and lost all engine power i'm able to land at any available airport they had to ditch the jet in the hudson river just outside of manhattan with all of the 155 passengers a rescued by nearby ferries and bolts thanks to the heroic solved by the captain and his crew their relatives and loved ones self all the people involved will get
2:08 am
to see them again ramana koester of artsy moscow region. who spoke to said the palace made all the right decisions under extreme pressure. take my hat off to the pilots and to everybody onboard the crew and the passengers because this was a textbook emergency landing the video i've just seen of it was absolutely amazing i think he took a calculated risk he said right we are too near the ground by the time the landing gear gets down it might not have locked in place we'll go for what we call a belly flop and that's basically what he did and he landed it beautifully and this is a bit like the if you remember the hudson river incidents when the plane landed on the lake the whole point is that he brought it down with the nose slightly out and so literally it sailed over the cornfield and that's quite a robust crop so that helped the landing these pilots did brilliantly because they
2:09 am
were really quite low when the bird strike took place and the engine tower dropped away almost completely so they had to look around for an open space in which to land and they didn't and as you can see they've done it brilliantly russia does have a history of having very good pilots that it is a profession that russians are very proud of having those who have it placed exactly 10 years ago there was what has become known as the miracle on the hudson they got a little bit higher before the birds hit them but this time they were geese and those a very big birds they lost both engines the pilot looked around the highly urbanized area near new york couldn't see anywhere safe to land so he landed on the river and again like this event everybody survived. the new york medical examiner's office said on friday that the death of the discrete former money manager geoffrey epstein was caused by suicide the convicted paedophile was found
2:10 am
dead in this shell cell last week while awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges but lawyers for the financier who had connections in high places in washington said they're not happy with the findings of the autopsy. the defense team fully intends to conduct its own independent and complete investigation into the circumstances and cause of mr epstein's death we are not satisfied with the conclusions of the medical examiner the 66 year old multimillionaire was set to face trial over the alleged abuse of dozens of underage girls and the creation of a sex trafficking network just days before his death a manhattan court had released 1200 documents relating to the case it repeatedly denied the charges against him last month abstainer been placed on suicide watch after an attempted parent attempt on his life since the tycoon's death there's been numerous reports about the conditions he was living in too so suggested he was having to pay other inmates for protection others claim he was sleeping on the floor and wasn't able to wash some even say that there may not have been suicide
2:11 am
taking a close look at all that speculation and in the week. if there are screenwriters out there right now racking their brains over ideas for a mega juicy plot i've got a perfect one for you the life and death of convicted paedophile jeffrey epstein who was at the same time a friend of the likes of presidents clinton and trump or you case prince andrew just how many skeletons in his claws a did this man have his death as a real shocker and a staggering mystery some details of it though have been revealed to the public.
2:12 am
america baffled you really can't help asking questions. even though last month geoffrey epstein apparently already tried to kill him self a source within the law enforcement reported he was only put on suicide watch for less than a week plus it's been claimed epstein wasn't checked on every 30 minutes by guards and got deprived of his cellmate in violation of the prisons normal procedure there
2:13 am
was also a rumor that surveillance cameras malfunctioned on that night when the death happened. only a day before the inmate was found unconscious a court released 1200 pages of documents detailing numerous claims of child abuse by him and his girlfriend was that the last drop of anguish we'll never find out. oh this is a giant playground for fans of conspiracy theories these have been ranging from the idea that bill clinton had jeffrey epstein killed even president trump tweeted about that one to the russia did it kind of stories president from using his massive twitter platform $63000000.00 followers to spread a deranged conspiracy theory in a statement a clinton spokesman said the suggestion that the clintons were involved is ridiculous and of course not true and donald trump knows it you know this is
2:14 am
just more recklessness what he's doing is dangerous a guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men's lives and dead in his jail cell how predictably russian it's hilarious and ultimately completely predictable that you would have leftist democrats and the media trying to pin something else on russia we haven't seen any ties to russia in the eps and steve case we haven't seen any russian oligarchs that have been on this fly list that we know of but anyway you can't turn away from the fact that mr epstein was close like i said with some of the most influential people on this planet most likely they had nothing to do with the death but all those politicians and money makers can now brave a sigh of relief because dead men don't speak the really aggravating thing to me is all the flying monkeys that are out there right now on conspiracy theories if you
2:15 am
look at the facts of this case it was no question this was going to happen 1st of all in lock up settings like that there is no such thing as a personal privacy there there are no un control settings if rules are followed no shoelaces no belts no access to even as much as a finger nail clipper or radio show us the darn films what do the cameras have to say who had access to the cameras where are they this is a remarkably simple program just 1st show us what was recorded. the real case is that you had very influential people all over the world who absolutely knew what a bottom feeder abstain was they all are partially responsible for this ugly history of this pedophile. 15 in the morning here in moscow very good morning how do weekends going after the break here we break up more the big stories of the week just gone on hong kong and get in the news again to see if it will protests on both sides of the argument they have more divisions growing more speculation about
2:16 am
going to and think their lives will get the flavor of what some states but 2 in the afternoon then when we come back. to. you.
2:17 am
so what we've got to do is identify the threats that we have it's crazy confrontation let it be an arms race in this on off and spearing dramatic development only and resist i don't see how that strategy will be successful very critical. usage. in. the morning for moscow's is out international now more of these are the way human rights activists has been pardoned in bahrain after almost 3 years behind bars for making critical comments online about the government bahrain maintains though she was jailed for promoting and encouraging people to mount a coup and name no use if she alleges she was tortured sexually abused by police
2:18 am
officers after the arrest already officials say they've referred her complaint indeed to a special investigation there are allegations relate to local police station whose chief was trained by u.k. police he says could taylor spoke to the organization the petition for usis release . you tell yourself a former bahraini civil servant and mother 4 was jailed in april 27th he criticised the regime for hosting the motor racing show case that is formula one use of gave account of the abuse and sexual assault she was subjected to at the hands of the offices she was arrested by this threaten to kill me they tried to bribe me they beat me but worst of all officers tour off my he job and attempted to strip me of my clothes before an officer sexually assaulted me in custody the pain and humiliation of that week will haunt me for the rest of my life but the gist of it.
2:19 am
is that the fact is she is involved in what they call it terrorist activity is. that it finishes off this means that the criticizing for will and grace and. reflecting good opinion on facebook or on twitter could considered to be a terrorism act and unfortunately for had she was subjected during combat interrogation to sexual assault and she was tortured only to interrogated about terror. in face book account which was simply just a critical formula one a domestic bahraini issue while not really because he appears to be just soft that all happened as activists claimed in the police station headed up by brigadier far was. because trained by none other than the british police back in 2015 office on travel to belfast on a study visit basically a crash course in how to manage protesters the trip cost british taxpayers 16000
2:20 am
pounds now n.g.o.s have raised the alarm question how this all fits in with bahrain's human rights record. for hiding behind. when i arrived at the building in morocco they blindfolded me interrogated me because of my human rights activities during the interrogation the use the worst forms of physical torture they told me some harsh words threaten me and sexually abused me. but the members of the national security service insulted me they threatened me with rape restricting my wife with huet preventing treatment depriving that thermally of education and housing in addition to psychological and physical torture i was jailed 5 times in the past year most of the time i am banned
2:21 am
from driving targeted jailed and my cause targeted attack by rubber bullets and tear gas. one can often why is the u.k. continuing its cooperation with the regime regularly condemned by organizations all over the walled while the u.k. says that to give a helping hand in improving human rights so it's all in good faith and in the name of democracy given the high level of skill and expertise across british policing it is not surprising that there is an international appetite to learn from the best we cannot stand by and criticize countries from the sidelines if we want to see wholesale changes it probably doesn't hurt that it brings in a tidy sum to the arm of the u.k. home office responsible for training officers abroad as poor and over 3000000 pounds since 2012 with 89 percent of that some coming from countries where the death penalty still exists when the british government really talk about. training
2:22 am
those police what they are really doing is empowering what we call it culture of impunity and they are their own which pretty much training tortures but also rewarding them if a police officer committed an abuse or something people could resort to things like this like and was meant office you where you can submit complaints over the since 2012 to this date we have seen that those institutions which should be fisheries or the british training resulted in only one thing that they they kill the torture the still systematic in the country this is what the united nations said this is what amnesty and what human rights watch said and then secondly that there is the climate of impunity is a still the status in the country allegations of complicity in human rights violations and bolstering authoritarian regimes increase daily complicit or not one has to admit it's not great for the british brands sask auti in london.
2:23 am
long 22 in the morning or most go this. afternoon in hong kong that's we're going next bracing yourself for the mass anti-government rally as the city's protest campaign continues for 11 consecutive weekend these are live pictures from the semi autonomous chinese territory where thousands of already gathered in victoria park in the busy causeway bay this street. protests as you know by the civil human rights front which has been behind some hong kong biggest protests over the past 2 months get another rainy day they want to about 27 degrees they say rainy season of course but this fight over yet again a huge turnout again it seems comes after thousands of teachers rallied against hong kong's authority saturday in a show of solidarity with the young people who've been leading cause of democratic reforms there's also a counter protest to people concerned by the continuing on restless it's been months of pro-democracy protests were originally calling for the control of
2:24 am
controversial extradition. but when it broadened out they've since adopted so much broader thinking the resignation of hong kong's leader also democratic elections and an inquiry into alleged police brutality concerns are growing that the ongoing campaign for the city special status in jeffie though and risking may be intervention from china.
2:25 am
you know has been pretty heated there were protests hong kong's airport talking unexpected turn on choose day as well as we reported to you in a report of a chinese global times newspaper was seized by the crowds. was the editor in chief of the global times paper has confirmed today that is his employee in the video we saw there must be so scary he never know what can happen with so many crowds around in his tweet he pleaded with the demonstrators to release the journalist noting that his sole job was simply to be reporting for what was going on there he also called on western journalist to help to political analyst and journalist on drivel check believes the protest is what the media to give only their side of the story. the protesters started truly afraid that the
2:26 am
truth is going to go. to the surface the out of anger it's all the media which is trying to go but it's true the chinese will be out to sea for the few and they're only supposed to feel the b.b.c. able to see it and other media go to school that's. absolutely oversight if you look. at issues. there's still a very basic well so i think looking so far thanks for watching the weekend from out international monitors kevin i went with the rest of team of a great sunday. in a world of big partisan. loftus and conspiracy it's time to wake up to dig deeper to hit the stories that made history media refuses to tell more than ever we need to be smarter we need to stop slamming the door on the back and
2:27 am
shouting past each other it's time for critical thinking it's time to fight for the middle for the truth the time is now for watching closely watching the hawks. know why a paradise with so much all year round turned into a round the experimentation field but agricultural chemicals we know that these chemicals have consequences they are major here tens there's no question otherwise why would that the chemical company workers themselves be geared up that suited up locals attempt to combat the on regulated experiments but often in day you have many of these people who have one foot into the biotech pharma and the other foot in the government regulatory bodies this kind of collusion is reprehensible while the battle goes on the chemicals continue to poison hawaii and its people so one
2:28 am
has to ask the. question whether there is a form of environmental research going on in hawaii whether these companies feel they can get away with it because the people have less political power. cloned welcome to the part of the recent clashes on the indian pakistani border while sparking invites you over a potential war between nuclear rivals provided
2:29 am
a curious lassen in political judo the pakistani leadership confronted to strikes on its territory not only managed to defuse time but also turned it into a minor p.r. victory kemet make it last while to discuss that i'm now joined by him there obama har pakistan's former foreign minister and currently a member of the national assembly but i'm hard as good to talk to you again thank you very much for the time. so good to be now the tensions between india and pakistan obviously have a very long history and there were times not so long ago when the one that was much more likely to count on india exercising restraint and pakistan acting more belligerent lee now it seems the tables have turned what explains these dramatic reversal in posters and you know it's interesting that you point that out because we've been seeing this for the last many years that pakistan has changed by this is changing for the better getting out of extremism which we unfortunately found
2:30 am
ourselves and we lived in because of you know the historical baggage of the one war and becoming a more progressive society i think the democratic regimes the last 2 democratic regimes had much to do with it whereas at the same time we see india going deeper and deeper into this ultra nationalist extremist almost in the state non-secular and all times to mr moody who has not been the treated his vision into the fabric of indian society i think this crisis is unfortunate as it was exposed the changed pakistan worse is the change to india and if i were the world i would be very scared of what i see in india right now for both leaders it was definitely an opportunity to exercise leadership and they chose very different strategists one of them chose to flex muscles the other one i thought relied more on his wits do you think that's more reflective of the personality of the 2 leaders mr modi and mr han or is it indeed more along.
