five passengers on board were from the region at the airport their family and friends of those on board the flight began to wait for news with little hope that anyone had survived. we have found a breeze from n a n one four eight a plane and the bodies of stupid hymns. the most important thing now is the organized collection of debris in the remains of the big by ministry of emergency situations workers. transport to authorities soon confirmed everyone in the plane had died. russia has suffered two major crashes in recent years in december two thousand and sixteen at t. u. one five four military across crashed into the black sea with the loss of ninety two people it was blamed on pilots era in october two thousand and fifteen a russian air bus crashed in egypt's sinai peninsula killing all two hundred twenty four people on board i still said it placed a bomb in the aircraft. randomly putin has canceled

a trip to sochi which was shut jeweled for monday he was due to meet the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas that now that meeting will now take place in moscow from where putin will monitor the investigation investigators have found a flight recorder from the plane and this will be crucial in determining why this relatively new aircraft came promising out of the sky various causes are being considered including pilots era bad weather conditions well perhaps something else really chalons zero mosque or cave makea is an aviation consultant with mac international he says finding a second black box will be crucial to the investigation into the crash we know that the aircraft wreckage has scattered over a very wide area and this indicates probably impacted. rather flat and broke up on a high rate of aids the pieces were spread out we've heard report that there was
3:05 am
fire on board the aircraft before it crashed we've also heard that the pilot was trying to divert to a nearby airport for an emergency landing but none of these things are really concerned what we're really doing now the investigators will do is they'll attempt to recover both the black box they have won and they'll leave the other one do a complete investigation. well the first thing they're going to want to do is see if the aircraft was partly d.i.'s it's been sitting over night it might have accumulated a great deal of ice if the ice wasn't properly removed that would have been a very bad thing. if the weather was bad presumably there on takeoff and climbing out if ice was a factor engine ice or something like that that should show up in the cockpit voice recorder conversations the digital flight data recorder so that will be important now there were not the thunderstorms obviously in the area so primarily we're going
3:06 am
to be concerned with ice they got airborne so the visibility shouldn't have been an issue so they'll be able to sort through the weather things rather quickly as they conduct the investigation and u.s. president on all trump has question israel's commitment to peace with the palestinians he did this in an interview with an israeli newspaper owned by american billionaire and backer sheldon adelson the us president says israel's settlements in the occupied west bank are complicating the peace process and also threaten again to withhold aid to the palestinians unless they agree to talks israel's prime minister benjamin netanyahu has promised to continue military operations inside syria after one of its f. sixteen warplanes was shot down by enemy fire israeli warplanes carried out a series of strikes on what it says were iranian targets in syria on saturday and yahoo says the operation was a serious blow to iran fossett reports on maestro slim. israeli soldiers collected

debris on sunday at the site where an air force f. sixteen fighter crashed a day earlier while the investigation continues the army told al-jazeera it had confirmed the plane was struck by a syrian anti-aircraft missile the first israeli fighter shot down since one thousand nine hundred two. at the border israeli media reported anti missile batteries have been increased after extensive israeli counterstrikes the day before inside syrian territory. yesterday we landed hard blows in the forces of iran and syria we made unequivocally clear to everyone that our modus operandi has not changed one jot. we will continue to hit back for every attempt to holler for any blown flick to us this is been our policy and this remain our policy to show the incident began with the downing of what israel says was an iranian drone launched from syria that had crossed into israeli airspace iran continues to deny the charge the secretary of the national security council saying
3:08 am
the allegations by zionists that they hit iranian bases in syria is a lie we are in syria as consultants we don't have the kind of military presence for them to make this allegation the years israel's government has been talking about a mounting iranian threat on its northern borders i don't think we we thought we were not to vulnerable but we certainly didn't expect it to happen this quickly so that's why i'm saying it's a wake up call for the future the army knows how to respond. in a way or want to create an escalation. the only way it will cripple solutions the other side wants in the schoolies and israeli politicians have been praising what they've called a current public reaction to this incident but they're also aware that it highlights increasingly complex and difficult relationship with russia and its role inside syria israel struck targets close to where russian forces are based on saturday. prompting a statement from russia's foreign ministry calling it absolutely unacceptable to
3:09 am
endanger the lives of russian soldiers inside syria. this after months of diplomatic efforts to convince russia to help constrain iranian activity there. but one former senior israeli military intelligence officer the loss of the plane and the extent of the retaliation don't represent a new phase in the conflict rather a reminder of its stakes. in the longer run but look the long the arena presents in syria should come to an end and we expect russia and the united states to make sure that this is going to be that the end result. israel says its military response is now complete but this weekend has put the dangers of the largest scale cross border conflict into sharp focus. out west jerusalem only six civilians including two children have been killed in syrian government airstrikes near the capital damascus tax targeted several towns in the rebel health suburb of eastern ghouta falls within the so-called deescalation zone agreed to by turkey russia and iran syrian
3:10 am
government and russian air strikes have killed more than two hundred forty people in rebel held areas and just last week the un says some of the attacks may be war crimes the u.n. is also calling for an immediate deescalation of fighting in syria to address a worsening humanitarian crisis according to its food agency nine million people need food assistance kern is the syria country director for the world food program and he says any truce needs at least to last for a month at the moment told keep on going to these places to east. to. the fighting the security of all stuff of calls. but also. it's dangerous to to come in and collect for example food if states fighting going on so we need a pause in the fighting and for months. the already houses are full we have to
3:11 am
because. we supposed to million people every day we salute assistance in the country and we can easily she flees. you see have an opening to these areas start the haven't reached full as i say two months no. the british foreign secretary has urged me and maurice later on sun sochi to follow that allow the un rather to surface supervise the return of the hunter refugees forced johnson made the plea after visiting displaced muslim villagers and rakhine state and refugee camps and bangladesh toward an area in myanmar were homes were destroyed in new ones are being built johnston says such he appears to be removed from the reality on the ground i'm not sure she really understands the full horror of what has happened i don't think she's been in a helicopter to see what we have seen today and really what i was trying to get ava to is the importance of her leadership i believe in her and i believe in her
3:12 am
leadership i think she's done incredible things in her life i'm very sad to see what's happening to burma now and to see the direction the country is going i believe she can still make a change and make a difference but to do that she needs to show leave get the agencies in get the refugees back home in a way that is safe and voluntary and and dignified korea's olympic delegations as left seoul leaving the south korean government to consider an offer of a summit and pyongyang the group which included the sister of the north korean leader kim jong il and it's a visit by joining south korean president moon jan and a concert given by a north korean are true they've been holding talks on the sidelines of the winter games on saturday came to young extended a gravitational to president moon to visit pyongyang the tajik uname has more from seoul. even as athletes competed on the snow and ice diplomatic developments continue to steal at least some of the spotlight during what's being called the
3:13 am
peace olympics the last three days have been historic and a high point in interest and relations north korean leader kim jong sister kim jong became the first member of the ruling family to cross into the south since the korean war she came with an invitation kim jong un is asking the south korean president in to visit pyongyang at a convenient time soon if this meeting transpires it would be the first time that kim jong il has met with the south korean president since taking office in twenty eleven president moon says he'll begin arranging the conditions to make that visit happen but he stresses that any rebuilding of interest korean relations must involve dialogue between the united states and north korea u.s. vice president mike pence sat very close to the north korean delegation during the opening ceremony he m. a north koreans rebuffed president moon's attempts to facilitate
3:14 am
a midi skeptics say that this north korean charm offensive is heavy on the symbolism but they doubt that it will result in anything substantive they say this is an attempt by the north koreans to drive a wedge between the united states and the south koreans into an advance their own agenda but for now president moon and many south koreans are encouraged by the prospect that what we've been seeing could be the beginning of a reboot of injury and relations robert kelly is a professor of political science and diplomacy at this on national university is skeptical that the past few days diplomacy will lead to a breakthrough. the best thing that the olympics can do right now is sort of for stall the march to war that seemed to be taking place last year as long as the olympics make it look at the north and south are talking to one another then becomes much harder for donald trump and the trump white house to go on t.v. and advocate for for strikes right we know that some people are some pretty seriously thinking about it they just vetoed for example just
3:15 am
a couple weeks ago they vetoed a highly qualified potential ambassador pick for south korea someone who's quite a hawk but apparently wasn't hawkish enough because the trump people are generally considering the strikes well as long as the north and south are talking you know the americans need south korean buy in on the strikes as long as the north and south are talking they won't get it so that's sort of one of the things i think that moon is doing right this gives him time to figure out how to respond to the americans if we can do some small things like cultural events and sports and music and things like that and that kind of generates a few small steps that lead to the largest ups and so on that's great right i mean if this is what it takes to get the north koreans in the room and talking so much the better and i don't particularly mind one way or the other but we've had these kinds of things before they haven't really worked right and i'm not really sure that sort of cultural interaction can actually generate any meaningful concessions on either side the political gaps are pretty big but we should always keep trying right it certainly better than we were a year ago when you know with fire and fury and all that still ahead on al-jazeera a lawsuit filed by new york's attorney general is the latest problem for hollywood

3:21 am
it makes very clear that there were layers within the weinstein company that will well aware of the activities of the principal shareholder and in fact in polity and in his activities the h.r. department for example received numerous complaints over the past four or five years not a single one of these complaints were acted upon the attorney general also found that senior members of the board well well aware of harvey weinstein using tipple to use and they did nothing about it so the suit filed in the supreme court already in one body who was going to be attempting to buy the company has withdrawn the offer to buy of needed to be in the wake of this particular suit so the attorney general's apparent wish that the sale of this company will not go ahead until all those within it are held accountable and are held responsible for their role in
