a unified palestinian authority back to the gaza strip and from there we can start talking about how to reopen gaza's borders to allow tricky for law movement of people and good. but it's certainly not going to come from washington it could come from cairo it could come from other regional actors perhaps europe but it's not going to come from us and how that are going to joining us from arlington thank you so much for your time. thanks here's what's coming up for you on this news hour priest storm planning saved many lives when cycling funny hit india but one of the hundreds of thousands it did leave one. saddam's military announces plans for change the opposition still unconvinced and in sport we will find out how chelsea secured a spot for next season's champions league. at
least forty one people have died in russia after a plane in flames made an emergency landing extraordinary pictures here of that moment the stricken aircraft returned to moscow's sure but the over airport captured by an amateur cameraman fire broke out minutes after the air flight flight took off for months in northern russia nobody from my look down there was seventy three passengers and five crew members twenty eight passengers are now at the airport terminal investigators on psychologists are working with them five people have been hospitalized thirty seven out of seventy eight people on board of the plane survived thirty three passengers and four crew members. very pleased to have john goglia with us now former member of the n.t.s.b. the national transportation safety board he's in newton massachusetts for us mr gurley obviously there is a lot of speculation at this point it is very very early in the piece how ever when you looked at those pictures for the first time what what instinctively did you
think about what was going on there because it's quite extraordinary to see a plane landing in flames my goodness. certainly is unusual to have that kind of fire engulfed the airplane so early after it landed now it's not clear whether or not it was a fire on board prior to landing or not because just too early some of the eyewitnesses were stating that there was no fire until the airplane had landed and they also have stated that the airplane had bounced on landing which may indicate that they may have broken some of the structure of the airplane and a lot of the mass of fuel leaks that that kind of firewood would need to support it now. it does look like the airplane is still on its landing year and it also. they are really reports said that he didn't have time to to jettison our dump any fuel from the airplane which means it was probably made an overweight landing so
they'll be taking a look at the investigators will be taking a close look at that what the airplane weighed when it landed and if the structure broke on landing to provide the fuel for that kind of fire that intensity of the fire extraordinary ok what can you tell us about the plane the type of plane and the airline itself because i think you know our viewers are probably familiar with the bombings in a bus of this world this was a plane i believe which people are probably not the know as much about. right it's a fairly new airplane it's been built flying since two thousand and eight it has been very reliable early on they had an accident that was attributable to the flight crew making a grave mistake on a demo demonstration flight but otherwise it's had a very good record this i believe is the third accident in total for this type of
airplane and so it's been proven to be a pretty reliable platform so it's going to be interesting to see what comes out of it the russians have put a lot of faith in this airplane not only for their domestic use but also to export it internationally and so any time they have an accident like this it's going to call into question. the manufacturing and the safety of the airplane and how we in the familiar situation of his having to wait for the black box recorders the flight deck recorders because again as i look at those pictures the sort of think well that's maybe not going to be a whole lot of debris to actually sift through because it's all been you know destroyed by the final. yes it. was my concern as well that through the intensity of the fire it may consume a lot of physical evidence so we'll have to wait and see i didn't see any. rescue
equipment in the early pictures at the scene so that may be an issue as well where was the equipment and what kind of equipment that they have available to put the fire out so that the look but the recorders will give us some indication and this type of x. and i think the the cockpit voice recorder may be most beneficial. very early in the pace but great to get your expertise junglee thank you so much for joining us. the u.s. president don't trump is stepping up pressure on china to reach a trade deal he has announced tariff increases on chinese goods trump said tariffs on two hundred billion dollars worth of chinese products would rise to twenty five percent on friday he's on the take us through this want to correct it was the ten percent was the level previously so how significant is this this new threat. it's very significant to come all because if president donald trump follows through
on this twitter threat it would essentially mean this and it's pretty remarkable it would mean that virtually every good that is imported to the u.s. from china would face some sort of terror i mean that's pretty incredible to think about that and this is what trump was laying out this is why it's caught many people by surprise as you mentioned he would increase he said from twitter he would increase from ten percent to twenty five percent tariff on nearly two hundred billion in chinese goods but then he went on to also say that he would add an additional twenty five percent on another three hundred twenty five billion dollars of of imports they currently don't have a tariff on it's you add all that up and it's pretty significant this is clearly president trump's way to try to get china to relent to bring them back to the negotiating table all that we've heard is that there was a deal perhaps that could be done imminently so clearly something is not right
clearly trump has been told by his negotiators with today or within the last day or so that they are not nearly as close as what many people had thought and how have the markets reacted to this one because donald trump loves to point to the success of the economy under his leadership. yeah he really does have these things called the future trading markets and what that is it is allows traders to speculate or hedge on what they think their ias components of the market are going to do when they open on monday or the next day those dow futures market after trump made this threat was down four hundred points on sunday at one point almost down to five hundred points the s. and p. futures dropped to over one percent the nasdaq futures up one point five percent that doesn't seem like a lot you say one point five percent that's not a lot it is actually in futures trading so this signals that traders were caught off guard wall street was caught off guard and that it signals that this could be a very rough week in the stock markets here and here ahead again this is
a trade war between the two biggest economies of the world so there's it would it will and is and could affect really all of the economies of the world if they don't get this straightened out but clearly they still have a lot of work to be done it's important to point out that the chinese trade negotiators will be in washington this week so we should get a better idea if they're going to strike a deal or not here in the coming days thank you for all those details gebril is on in washington the u.s. secretary state might says russia's government should stop intervening in venezuela and pay its comments comments he is expected to meet russia's foreign minister in finland this week. i'm going to meet with foreign minister lavrov in a couple of days we'll have more conversations about this the objective was very clear we want the iranians we want the russians we want the cubans out that's also what has to take place in order for venezuelan democracy to be restarted but then russia's foreign minister sergei lavrov hit back with this response. to this we now
see an unprecedented campaign led by the united states in order to overthrow the legitimate venezuelan government we condemn this campaign which seriously violates all the principles of international law provided by the united nations statute. and as the war of words between the u.s. and russia plays out over venezuela opposition supporters have gathered in the capital caracas to hold a vigil for those killed in fact these are live pictures of that future. again a vigil for those killed in the ongoing efforts to overthrow president in the last matilda. pope francis is being urged by campaigners to return to his native argentina to deal with revelations of child sexual abuse committed by roman catholic clergy to international organizations campaigning on the issue are in argentina meeting victims there are calling for clergy involved in abuse to be removed from office and then prosecuted daniel reports from.
these are victims of abuse by catholic church clergy those who have found the strength to speak out to demand justice they say there are many many more who are still too traumatized still summoning up the courage to talk. for ten years i could not speak about what had happened to me throughout my adolescence i could not put it into words i couldn't ask anyone for help. thirteen years old when he was sexually assaulted by a priest at his school he did finally manage to name his abuser who have ventured he was tried and jailed richard fifty more knew of our testimonies our voices and stories in public stimulation energize other victims to lose the shame to feel that they can share and take a step forward but the tide he says is turning in argentina and around the world activists from the united states are in argentina to meet victims to share experiences of
a global scandal if we can cite several cases where bishops recently have refused to disclose information to prosecutors about crimes by their priests. and they can get away with it here because they operate with legal impunity. that has to change if the church here is going to become lawful and if it's ever going to become safe for kids ninety six priests in argentina have been accused of sexual abuse but it's estimated there are hundreds more just a ham for the been prosecuted and thrown out of the church only now is the full extent of abuse in the catholic church. into the open as more and more of these victims speak out so why they're asking is the vatican not listening to them not doing more to tackle the scourge of child abuse. the head of the roman catholic church pope francis has called the abuses ravenous wolves who must prepare for divine justice zero tolerance frank this needs to get back here
early zero tolerance. that is assaulted a child. and i think. that's up from their responsibility. then message is that if he can't tackle the issue in his own country which he's not visited since he became pope in two thousand and thirteen he won't be able to deal with the scandal in the rest of the world in the meantime the voices of the abused only growing louder. when osiris it is saunders is the founder of the national association for people abused in childhood and told us pope francis needs to go to his home country and properly address this issue. my friends and colleagues are in argentina to stand alongside argentinean survivors who have been largely ignored.
in fact totally ignored by pope francis i think he needs to go home i think he needs to go home and i think he needs to meet with his people and i think he needs to meet with the survivors and victims of these crimes in his in his home country but there are things that the pope and i was in rome a couple of months ago where again there was a summit of bishops from around the world including bishops from from argentina lots of talk going on lots of commitment to work to continuing to talk but actually no firm commitment to make real change in the things those two things that really simple things that the pope can do one is to change canon law he can do that at the stroke of a pen to exclude permanently anybody who abuses children and anybody such as a cardinal or a bishop or a pope who covers up for those crimes they must be excluded from the church permanently they cannot possibly have that place of privilege but equally important
the church if it is serious must hand over all the information that it holds about abusers to the civil authorities. these ten people were killed ninety injured on sunday in rebel held northwest syria which continues to be bombed by government forces along with russian warplanes a volunteer with the white helmets rescue is also died this weekend in an airstrike on a village in italy province which has now been under attack for six days and an underground hospital was hit as well by an airstrike knocking it out of service. at least twenty security forces have been killed dozens wounded in a car bombing in northern afghanistan officials say armed fighters belonging to the taliban entered the police headquarters after the blast and then opened fire on security forces this is in police committee the taliban has stepped up its attacks on police and troops even as it holds those direct negotiations with the united states to end seventeen years of war in afghanistan. the united nations world

that mediation or not the mediators have offered to have two counsels during the transitional period one of them being called the security and defense council and the other being the transitional civilian council the security and defense council is proposed to have a military majority with civilian representation and the transitional council should have a civilian majority with material presentation right now the opposition parties are trying to figure out should be accept to count on or not and try to sort out the differences on how much representation should the civilians get and how much of a presentation should the military get if they have a single independent transitional government meanwhile thousands continue to protest in front of the army headquarters ahead of ramadan they are saying that they will be there many of them coming from various states across the country saying that for them if the military council does not hand over power the city and the protests will continue so at the moment a divided opposition is trying to sort out their differences to bridge their gap to try to unite before they face the military council with a single demand of having
a civilian transitional government while thousands continue to protest waiting for their demand to become a reality break on the news hour when we come back and eat and armies the standoff with soldiers still on the streets have been enough to use of election related projects bad news for gamers in iraq looking for a virtual scope and see what the government is banning a popular online video game and another tournament another bizarre display by this instrument can explode you know it's coming up it's on in space. without. some rather lively weather into eastern parts of the us lots of cloud here tornadoes large hail last all making its way away dry a quater weather comes in behind it only for a time like the most of monday that is going to be lost he settled in sunny along
