other countries have also temporarily grounded their max eight fleet the same boeing model crashed just five months ago in indonesia the victims of sunday's accident include people from thirty five countries in nairobi the united nations environment assembly held a minute's silence for their colleagues who died on the way to the conference. this tragedy has affected people across the world they are hoping the investigation will answer why their loved ones didn't make it home. our correspondent melanie core of the ball is following the story for us in nairobi she has more information about the victims of yesterday's plane crash. details about the people from all over the world who were on board of the plane which never arrived here in nairobi are emerging according to kenya has the highest number of casualties with thirty
two followed by canada with eighteen if european lost nine and italy the u.s. and china all had eight nationals on board the list of their names has been published and we're learning more about the people behind these numbers one of them for example was. he was born and raised in mombasa studied law in washington d.c. and was on his way to nairobi because the mother of his fiance had died and now the victim is the ethiopian aid worker messy he worked to save the children and was described by his colleagues as someone with tired listen he worked to protect vulnerable children in humanitarian crises there were also a lot of you and staffers on board the plane they were heading to nairobi where the assembly where the u.n. and women program is taking place this week they would have come to discuss the future of our planet but of course these are just a few stories about the people who lost their lives in yesterday's tragic crash.
the w.'s melanie crew had the ball there reporting from nairobi reacting to the crash china and ethiopia have said they will ground all boeing max eight planes as a precaution earlier i spoke against tell the managing editor of aviation week and ask him to tell us more about the type of plane that crashed the seven for seven max was based on the old seven three seven which boeing has been producing since the nineteen sixty's it's been shushi successful one of the actually the most successful civil aircraft for the max as modern and as i said it has a new engines some new software in there which is maybe important in in the court during the course of this investigation boeing has sold about five thousand of the aircrafts three hundred fifty of them have already been delivered since nineteen actually to two thousand and seventeen so this is simply a new plane and it is the second time that this exact same aircraft type of aircraft has crashed we know if there was
a link between these crashes. well that's the that's the point that that's the big question here and the answer is we don't know yet the first crush your question referring to was lion air last october seventy seven off the coast of jakarta. there appears to be a link to new software that boeing introduced on the facts in that particular crash which is supposed to help the pilots control the aircraft during a climb among others. i have not seen any evidence that the same system could have played a role in the us feel canal and crash so far bud obviously it's early days these investigations can take months and sometimes years to find out what happened and yet china and ethiopia already said they're going to ground all boeing max eight planes do you think we're going to see similar announcements from other
countries or aviation companies well we've seen both. both reactions i mean china has grown the fleets if you're going to ground of the fleet others are continuing. the question is whether the u.s. carriers will continue flying the aircraft i believe they will boeing has indicated there is nothing they know that would. force or would. encourage people to not fly the aircraft anymore. china's particular case the chinese government is the employer crosses as far as aviation safety is concerned so there is i wouldn't necessarily the use that as the kind of the blueprint for other countries to follow. yes look tell speaking to us earlier there now an indonesian woman held on suspicion of killing the half brother of north korean leader kim jong un has been freed after charges were dropped city i.e.
showers accused of poisoning kim jong nam with a nerve agent at kuala lumpur airport two years ago but another suspect from vietnam is still on trial. for the relief. and even that smile a city i'm sure is finally a free woman often murder charges against her unexpectedly dropped. a feel so happy. i didn't expected. today is my freedom day. it was. the engine the shim was one of two women held on suspicion of killing came jong nam this strange tough brother of the north korean leader kim jong un. c.c.t.v. footage from february twenty seven teen shows him a kuala lumpur international airport in malaysia at this point it's alleged the
women smith the deadly nerve agent expe on his face here he's seen describing to security guards want to happened and he says school to to the medical clinic at the airport. just minutes later he collapsed he died on the way to hospital. the city i sure has always denied murder claiming she and another woman were tricked into carrying the nerve agent by north korean spies part of a prank for a reality t.v. show we stew truly believe that she's really a scapegoat and she's innocent. there was no direct evidence that she ever played anything on you don't know the fact that the books that will follow did not have to be any of c.g.i. shot but for don t. one of the other person accused of kim jong un's assassination no such reprieve the vietnamese seen here on the left is sent to be traumatised that she has not also
been freed. it's still unclear why city i sure has been released but having faced execution she can now enjoy getting her life back. let's stick to our correspondent boss and heartache he is in bangkok following the story for us so why has city been set free now after two years in prison tell us more about what's behind that position. well it seems to me what's behind that decision is a letter by the indonesian government to the malaysian attorney general weighing in on the city isis behalf saying you see thought she was part of a reality show she was playing a prank also citing the longstanding and good relations between the two countries and placing the blame squarely on north korea saying that the north korean intelligence services made. their tools and that's why they are asking the
malaysian attorney general to reconsider which he apparently did because the charges were dropped she wasn't acquitted but she was released but that means is that the trial could be taken up again if new evidence were to emerge for example but she is allowed to travel to indonesia so it seems to be that's it for her so we busted as we saw another descent and a woman from vietnam is still in custody why was she not. very good question and also a question that her lawyers are asking as well saying they are they're requesting that the charges against her be dropped as well because she was charged using the same evidence and they're saying that following the principle of equality the charges against her should should be dropped as well and it's not only them saying that it's also her father in vietnam has spoken out and he said he doesn't understand it either why was the indonesian suspect released he asked and not his
daughter so those are questions that are better still up in the air and we'll have to see how the malaysian authorities are going to deal with this if they're going to drop the charges against her as well so far they have it ok so one defendant released one still in custody where does all of this lee. the investigation are we any closer to finding out what really happened. while the four prime suspects which seem to be for north koreans who left the country left malaysia immediately after the attack they're not likely to show up again so they are out of reach of the malaysian authorities and one thing that can be said is that. this whole case has led to a downturn in the deterioration of relations between north korea and. which were pretty good before the case there were hundreds of north korean workers in malaysia north koreans were allowed to travel visa free to north korea. now that's all
a thing of the past there reportedly the malaysian embassy in north korea hasn't been staffed since two thousand and seventeen but malaysia's prime minister marketeer he recently said that he's ready to resolve the issues between north korea but that seems to indicate that they're not going to pursue this case any further so we're very unlikely to find who are the real perpetrators behind him john noms murder so many. reporting for us from bangkok thank you very much. now some other stories making headlines around the world iran's president hassan rouhani is started a three day visit to neighboring iraq his first official visit as president who is accompanied by a high ranking delegation iran has emerged as an ally of iraq since the u.s. invasion that toppled iraqi dictator saddam hussein. in moscow thousands of people protested against a draft law that would place tight restrictions on the internet and russia lawmakers say the bill will prevent foreign interference but critics say it will increase censorship and isolate the country from the rest of the one. in the u.s.

caused a nuclear meltdown at the daiichi power plant. a sizable area of the surrounding countryside remains off limits to this day cleanup operations will take decades to complete despite that people in the region are trying to rebuild their lives and livelihoods. the guests have arrived in fukushima they've come for an eco friendly home stay at local farms in the west of the prefecture. the tourist association rep tells the travellers that not only can they expect excellent treatment from their hosts they don't need to worry about radioactivity either. mr and mrs cooper gnocchi are over the moon about development they'll soon be looking after two young americans in their home. like for their village after years of darkness not many people around here can live off agriculture anymore prices for vegetables from fukushima have hit rock bottom. even though these fields are one hundred forty kilometers away from the wrecked
reactor and shielded from it by a mountain range. so far away but ever present nuclear power station operator tepco gave this german a.r.d. t.v. team exclusive access to the devastated power stations grounds tepco wants to show the world it's in control but the reactor containers are still full of melted nuclear fuel rods together eight hundred tons of extremely radioactive waste more even than in chernobyl go on to extract the hard slog over thirty to forty years. thirty to forty year time frame is not based on exact data it's a rough estimate. we need to collect more data before we can decide on a firm share deal. tepco is keeping quiet about exactly how it will recover the waste there will be a world first if it comes off. the cousin okies insists that radiation levels
around their house are normal. but the farmer tells his guests that he can only sell vegetables when the name fukushima doesn't appear on the label. because the nokia's used to run a small restaurant but after the fukushima reactor disaster a business collapsed around the world the name for who she stands for only one thing. so my parents when i told them i was going. they're worried about about nuclear exposure. but having this opportunity and seeing how the people here are thriving it makes me makes me i guess i get to brush that. because an okie is daughter in law has come around for dinner with their grandchildren. it's almost like it was in the good old days. those were the days their son still lived next door with his family. before he had to leave home to
find work. so far away but ever present focus shima eight years on. venezuela's opposition leader juan why though says he will ask lawmakers to declare a state of alarm that would authorize the delivery of international aid after the catastrophic power blackout that is paralyzed the country the people of venezuela are struggling to cope as police arrest an increasing number of people looting. shops in the venezuelan capital smashed up and picked clean of their contents. at this supermarket in south eastern caracas people accused of taking food including pasta rice and tomato sauce were among those later arrested by security forces for looting. scenes of desperation like this are becoming more commonplace in the crisis hit south american nation all compounded by
a day's long power outage. medicines were already in short supply now reports that the blackout has led to patients dying in hospitals also fueling rising anger at the government's inaction the fact let me say a medical crisis is in venezuela has a first and last name and it's nicolas maduro it's time to understand that the humanitarian crisis is not political it's social venezuelan's a dying because there are no solutions and what sort of story meanwhile those fortunate enough to get power from a generator of finding new uses for their refrigerators. they can only mean i have a refrigerator where we're storing food but it can also fit medicine was there are many people who need to store them at least as far as insulin is concerned you know what i mean i think my knees are lean i know. but many businesses have been without
power for days with their fridges off food is rotting on the shelves forcing many shop owners to cut their losses. hey i live on earth again i'm giving this all away yesterday i gave away pizza today i'll give all of this to the kids on the street i knew that you know that it. has the crippling blackouts drags on so does the blame game between the opposition and the president over his way and can do now is wait for good news. now to the day that shattered the small town of vinod and in southwestern germany ten years ago today a seventeen year old gunman stormed into his former high school and started shooting at students and teachers he killed sixteen people before eventually turning the gun on himself it was a rare and shocking act of violence here in germany which has seen three school shootings since the one nine hundred sixty s. many relatives and survivors of benetton are calling for tougher gun controls for
them a decade later the emotional scars remain. this being the place where her daughter was gunned down ten years ago is still incredibly difficult for gisela meyer the day she heard the news of her daughter's death and the other view high school her life changed forever. it's going my world just fell apart it pulled the ground out from under my feet i absolutely couldn't grasp what happened and it took months for my to understand that she was done i kept resisting the very thought of it could be up to. her daughter nino was one of fifteen victims that a gunman shot at the school and during his a scheme. she was a student teacher in the school and buried under twenty fifth birthday. the seventeen year old shooter had stolen his father's gun from an unlocked bedroom cabinet in the end he killed himself. today this memorial room pays tribute to those who lost their lives in this former
classroom the gunman who shot the students at random. gisela meyer is active in the against violence and schools foundation to prevent such acts from ever happening again. one small step forward a stricter laws on private individuals storing firearms. trauma counselor i'll bet b. singer was one of the first on the scene after the shooting he helps students who had lived through the horrific experience process their emotions. i tried to talk with them so they could process what they went through. lead and i had to that's a principle of trauma counseling people to express their feelings can because it's far more harmful to suppress someone soon let them cry and scream if they need to see those winds. in the decade since the shooting security measures in the school have been stepped up doors are more difficult to open from the outside and teachers
try to identify challenging students early on. the mission for example we have a school xhosa worker who is deeply involved in the school we have a project name but social cohesion with and getting along with other. relatives of the victims try to somehow to go on with their lives. meyer has finally managed to find some inner peace. or taught this point child the shooter came across as a monster but he was really just a young boy full of the hate because he didn't have the life in others and that inch of him really helps me understand what made him commit such an evil. to start. this memorial called the broken ring symbolizes the suffering in winnenden a brutal cut a contemplate of place and the shadow of a fateful day. in the german city of hamburg the
