12:03 am
the one nine hundred sixty s. was too old and needed to be replaced with with more modern models so this plane does have a history of having been involved in crashes in the past where they say we won't know exactly what caused this crash where there was pilot error or whether it was due to weather conditions or weather or to do any of the fact is a tale of the plot box recorders are analyzed. ok p three but there. live from moscow and stay with r.t. as we continue our coverage of that plane crash in northwest russia. to libya now where another deadly nato bombing in tripoli has reportedly killed at least fifteen civilians insists it hit a command center and the bill officials say three children among the dead it comes just a day off the alliance admitted killing up to nine civilians in another strike which is blamed on a technical failure. in austin reports now from tripoli with some images you may

a missile strike home are mohammed's brother who survived says they will never forgive or forget what nato has done to them destroying their lives and hems. they should take responsibility for their wrongdoing and nato has responded with an apology. intended target during last night's airstrike in tripoli was a military missile site. however from our initial assessment of the facts it appears that one weapon did not strike the intended target due to a weapons systems failure although officials in tripoli claim more than eight hundred civilians have died in nato raids there nine people they say were killed in sunday's bombardment of the city have become the first civilian casualties officially acknowledged by the alliance only on saturday nato has also admitted and other mistake in a strike this time on rebel forces neither live in oil port of brag or with the number of casualties not been disclosed we hold nato we hold mr cameron mr sarkozy
12:06 am
this got us corny mr obama has already shown me good response about how the deaths of these innocent children innocent was empty of an innocent fathers and mothers you cannot justify this attack would you name it wasn't. sunday's fatal error occurs in the rising concerns within nato about its operation in northern africa only eight out of its twenty eight members have joined the mission to protect civilians in libya which raises the question how many would support one to kill them. r t tripoli. and it's not just foreign intervention in libya that's claiming a growing number of civilian lives we reveal later in the program. when the u.s. starts to people who are members a lot by the new arabian peninsula and then i think the real worry is that it
12:07 am
expands this war to the point where so many people join up with. us is under fire for the expansion of its drone attacks in pakistan and women we question of whether the strategy is helping to fight terrorism in the region or foster it and. the greek prime minister is facing a crucial confidence vote in parliament to determine whether he'll be able to secure an. another injection of cash from you and save the country from plunging into deeper crisis on monday new finance ministers for the pressure on greece they gave athens two weeks to pass fresh budget cuts tax increases missions that must be met to secure a previously agreed installment of twelve billion euro and we don't know who came dependence party wants britain out of the e.u. says the uncertainty over the next payment for greece is understandable. they've got frozen feet about but about the whole deal i mean greece is really not
12:08 am
a very large economy and what are you talking about in the present seventy billion with probably more to come in twelve months time and i mean where's it all going to when i mean the what's basically happening is that the taxpayers of northern europe particularly germany are going to have to pay up. to stop greece should default and the german taxpayers don't and the taxpayers of northern europe don't particularly like obsession the near fanaticism of the european elite for the political project of united states of europe and a common currency has resulted in a terrible terrible human cost if there is a greek default the people who would suffer would be the holders of greek sovereign debt who are basically banks institutions and the like is sort of the people who are suffering now. who are principally private the two million private sector employees in greece who are actually bearing the brunt of these draconian austerity
12:09 am
cuts. over austerity cuts is mounting another debt ridden east dates to spain we saw mass protests against the harsh measures john gaunt of the referendum campaign believes it's too late to save greece spain could be next to topple. if we just keep pumping money into greece it's only putting off the death of the. record i mean they are already bankrupt we have to wake up and smell the coffee and say enough is enough greece is going to go arlen is going to go portugal and of course the big one that everyone is worried about is the state of spying that is what some of our banks like barclays have been reducing our liabilities in spain because clearly the property slump in spain is much bigger than a spanish government is telling people they say there's only been a drop of eighteen percent i do radio shows in spain people are losing seventy percent sixty percent in the fire you have their homes and their developments spain
12:10 am
will be the next one to topple but why should the united kingdom which is already facing massive recession massive cuts in our social services massive cuts in our essential services and public services cutting down of our armed forces cutting down of our police etc etc why should we the u.k. taxpayer pay energy the german taxpayer pay for the ineptitude of the greek government i say we shouldn't i say let's get out of the euro and the now. financial guru max kaiser has his say about the e.u. financial woes and overwhelming debt dependents you can catch up with his unique analysis later in the day. a generation ago or two generations ago the word work imply accumulating savings but now the word work means accumulating debt so what they're saying is you young people out there who are entering the workforce if you work really hard you will accumulate massive.
12:11 am
the u.s. has stepped up its drone attacks in pakistan the most recent reportedly killing at least twelve people however a growing number of civilian deaths in the strikes are spot public anger with concerns the action is driving up the number of extremist recruits and now with reports that the u.s. plans to expand its drone war on yemeni territory criticism against the strategy is stronger than ever it is going to to count as the story. the u.s. is looking to expand its war on terror but its methods are under fire. in pakistan cia drone strikes aim at terrorists but end up killing mostly civilians public outrage is growing hatred and anger foster more terror if you push them against the wall then if this militancy and don't use them is going to increase this is not the
12:12 am
solution because if you're attacking them by drones and they're not proud of the war they have been on the other side who which might be they're going to join in pakistan in the one year the u.s. strikes killed seven hundred civilians but net it only five actual militant leaders many pakistanis are furious at their government for helping the americans kill their own people they accuse their leaders of doing that in exchange for billions of dollars from washington americans on the other hand are not too happy with what they get in return for their billions in the wake of osama bin laden's assassination in pakistan the u.s. all but accused the country's military intelligence agency of sheltering the al qaeda leader more questions arising in washington about pakistan's commitment to fighting terror after pakistan arrested five cia informants whose help was key to the bin laden raid how on to support governments allied to us when we say enough is enough most governments lie to each other and so
12:13 am
a business gets done and made all the cheerleading about bin laden's killing the u.s. has stepped up drone strikes in pakistan. and pakistan in a number of civilian casualties that result because of the drone strikes. that's like the taleban. in other groups in pakistan to recruit new numbers and they're doing their. base washington now sees yemen as the most dangerous al qaida outpost and he's planning to step up drone attacks on the country establishing a. they sing the persian gulf specifically for that purpose especially now when bin nonce replacement iman also ari is not to be building obl quite as already significant presence in yemen. the u.s. had been cooperate ing with yemeni counterterrorism forces in targeting al qaida but they've since left the field preoccupied instead with a nation wide turmoil against the sollie regime that means the americans are likely
12:14 am
to have a freer hand going it alone with the cia to take a central role because the agency is not subject to the accountability the us military is legally under expect more bombs to fall on yemen when the us starts to hit people who are members of al qaeda new arabian peninsula then i think the real worry is that it expands this war to the point where so many people join up with al qaeda their security in yemen over the killing of scores of civilians by the drone strikes in want to tack there the american military presumably ming at an al qaida training camp ended up killing dozens of women and children in another strike a year ago a drone mistakenly killed a deputy governor in yemen his family and eight it continues to pursue the same strategy just trying to pick off these leaders continuing to kill these leaders you don't get the same results and that is that these men will continue to be replaced is simple but i think very difficult truth is that there's just no magic missile
12:15 am
solution to the problem of all cried and you have with the expansion of the drone war it seems to go into this thinking only a misnomer the fighting on might or analysts say some of them may be in terms of this in the role of a smart not having taking down the force of the state and that they're bombing and the lack of accountability when it comes to feel that the areas that had more carried on the west side of me as well that america is fighting and bombs terror at the same time i am getting check out reporting. more. well then the lessons. from the japanese crisis that's the main aim of the nuclear forum in vienna which began on monday the opening session of the meeting tomic agency chief called for a tightening up of you can security. the transparency of history especially in emergency situations however the long awaited report into the fukushima disaster. and. london based policy adviser says
12:16 am
the decision to keep its results behind closed doors is wrong. understandably all of those want to know as much as we can about the present situation clearly sometimes you need discussions behind closed doors to. try to discuss things that may not be the case but which would cause a lot of fear if if they were announced until an hour later not to be the case but for such a major and meeting of this sort i do believe that a demonstration of openness is extremely important but i i think this is the wrong decision people are going to think. that they don't want to come out even if it's not the case i don't believe personally that we've seen a massive cover up of information coming from japan what we have seen though i think is a very slow response to questions and attitude which is before our true backward looking about this is what we think might have been happening two or four weeks ago
12:17 am
instead of this is what we think might happen in two or four weeks time and when that is the attitude. people are going to think will be all four of these are sitting on the information that they don't want to release. let's check on some other international headlines for you now former attorneys in presence in the dean ben ali and his wife have each been sentenced to thirty five years in prison for embezzling state funds they were tried in absentia after fleeing to saudi arabia in january following the popular uprising the judge also ruled that ben ali and his wife should pay fines almost. sixty six dollars opposed leader is a powerful twenty three is also faces a second trial on arms possession and drug trafficking charges. in china thirty six million people have been affected by floods and landslides according to chinese really reports the death toll has now reached one hundred seventy five if that flooding which began three weeks ago could bite renshaw rains
