so the certainty is even longer. for the iranians the auto phased approach to get rid of sanctions so they can participate in the world economy , they can export again oil and gas and money that has been
6:03 pm
frozen in the united states. it might be that we have a treaty signed with the foreign ministers and then it's a winning situation for both sides.>> there is some criticism that this framework is full of holes. >> i would not say it is full of holes. the technical negotiations can now start and within the next technical negotiations, they will try to overcome those problems they still have on each side. for example, the sanctions which have defined how should this work with the security council? there are some minor problems with what iran has to do with a certain amount of research and development. the will of the iranians to say we can after 10 years, but this has to be written in a form that
6:04 pm
can be signed at the end of june. there's a lot of work to do and the prime minister had an interview and even with this process, the whole process can fail. but it is a good start. >> you heard it -- history in the making. thank you. >> just a few minutes ago, barack obama made a statement from the white house about this nuclear deal with iran after what he called months of tough talks. president obama: member, i have always insisted i would do it i could to prevent iran from acquiring nuclear weapons, and i will. i also know a diplomatic solution is the best way to get this done and offering a comprehensive and lasting solution. it is our best option by far. while there is always a possibility, this framework of
6:05 pm
inspections and transparency will make it sure we know about it if they try to cheat and i and future presidents will have preserve the options available to deal with it. >> president obama speaking on a framework deal with iran. we turn now to another big story -- the copilot who intentionally crashed the german wings part -- the german wings flight last week had researched suicide methods and cockpit door security prior to the crash. but that is according to german authorities who search the computer he left in his apartment. he is believed to have purposefully locked the captain out of that cockpit and set a collision course with the french out, killing everyone on board. >> investigators believe a might ea step closer to understanding the motives of the german wings pilot. they uncovered new evidence from a tablet computer in his
6:06 pm
apartment in dusseldorf. >> the search history in the browser had not been deleted. we analyzed the search terms used from the 16th to the 23rd of march. the user looked for information about their be as as different forms of suicide. on at least one day, he spent several minutes searching for information about cockpit doors in particular, on how they are secured. >> these latest findings leave little room for doubt about what happened. it seems the 27-year-old copilot took advantage of his colleagues act says of the cockpit and deliberately crashed the plane into the rocky ravine, taking 149 people with him to their deaths. meanwhile, there were developments from french investigators today. the second flight recorder was
6:07 pm
found by recovery workers at the crash site. this after more than a week of intensive search. the flight data recorder records the route, speed and altitude of the plane. should the data be usable, and analysis could give further insight into the crash. the cockpit voice recorder was recovered one day after the accident, leading investigators here the last conversation and noises from the flight deck. that box provided the first evidence to imply the copilot could have deliberately brought the airbus down. nine days later, investigators think they might have a clearer picture of why this tragedy occurred. >> for more, i am joined by our aviation expert. i understand it is very tricky terrain in the french else but black box number one was found almost immediately. why did it take so long to find black box number two? >> apparently it was not only stuck underground but hidden
6:08 pm
under a lot of debris in an area that had been searched before. today, a young member of the search group discovered it while looking for clothing and other personal items of the passengers. we have seen pictures of the flight eight a recorder. it looks pretty badly burned, so it must have an in the fire. but investigators say the eta on it may be usable. >> what kind of data is on it? what will it tell investigators? >> the data will show if the plane was operating normally or if in fact, there may have been a technical defect -- something investigators have not ruled out as a cause of the crash. the data will also show what was done to the plane from the flight deck, which could also be instant -- which could be interesting to know. they know that the heading of the plane had been changed and the alarm indicating excessive
6:09 pm
speed had been turned off. the data may also show if and when a several digit code necessary to enter the cockpit was punched in and whether this mechanism was stalled from inside the cockpit. a lot of indicators that investigators will look at. ask as these pieces of the puzzle come together, one of the big pieces is this information police have recovered from the copilot's tabet -- tablet. >> as we have learned, he did it research online regarding suicidal methods and the workings of the cockpit security door, eve know he should be aware of them as a pilot. psychiatrist say this does not prove a suicide. however, it is becoming difficult not to view this.
6:10 pm
>> let's talk about corporate responsibility for a moment. lufthansa has said they were aware he was suffering from depression. has this revelation prompted any sort of debate in germany about the company's stringent medical privacy laws? >> there is a debate going on whether medical records of people working in high responsibility jobs should be disclosed to their employer in order to see if their physical or mental condition poses any threat to security. but as you mentioned, the privacy laws in germany are rather strict. what we are going to see is more strict monitoring and assessing the mental state of health of pilots in the future. >> thank you very much for your analysis. germany has set up a task force to take a look at flight safety.
6:11 pm
one of the issues they will discusses how to improve identification checks. >> passengers traveling with any 26 countries don't have to show any identification before they board and that has complicated efforts to identify just who was on the plane when it crashed. >> present your tickets at the gate and head off for your flight. that is the reality for millions of passengers. the luggage gets checked, but not id will stop >> i can imagine as far as ids go, people will want to introduce stricter measures than the ones that exist at the moment. i have every sympathy with the interior ministry's ideas. >> controls were relaxed 20 years ago. the agreement covered large

parts of the eu and marked a milestone toward european unity. but it means there is no systematic oversight of who is going where in most of the european union and the interior minister says that is a security risk. when the german wings lane crashed, it took police too long to identify who was on board but the opposition says he is using the victims to force through more passenger surveillance. they have accused him of lacking sympathy. german airlines have introduced a two person cockpit rule and want to look at the cockpit door locking mechanism to prevent a repeat of the german wings crash . >> officials in yemen say al qaeda fighters stormed a risen in a coastal city and freed some 300 fellow militants. rebels are making advances on a strategic southern city despite attempts by the saudi led international coalition to force them to retreat.
