it's still very early. two hundred meters. way earlier than it should have and according to the statements made by the ground control. they had. to make a second approach because of. bad weather conditions the pilot. but of course. communication. investigators continue their work at the site of the debris there is spread across
1:02 pm
a three hundred meter radius the flight recorder has already been found. recordings and forensic analysis is being carried out looking into several versions of the tragedy these include the human. the cruel the ground severe weather conditions. and several of the potential causes. electricity. people still don't have electricity. should be replaced within five years however there are those who would argue that in most of the plane crashes that happened in the past for this particular model there had been twenty eight crashes this one included most of the time the reason behind the crowd. compounded of course by several factors but usually it's human
1:03 pm
error that causes such crashes. which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane itself in forty years of operation that you three four has proved an extremely reliable aircraft in previous catastrophes human error was always to blame same is true here the pilot should have made a second landing approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane survivor families that are already in moscow and three here at least those who are still here you expect the relatives to come and to see them here as well as the relatives of those that have been killed the forty four that were killed in the crash now in terms of a conversation with. insurance rather from. which is the airliner that had carried to its will receive about two million rubles that's about seventy one thousand dollars that's insurance for those who were killed now authorities both in moscow
1:04 pm
as well as local authorities said that they will also provide financial aid to those who have survived and here right now actually they had declared three days of mourning and we do see some people still coming here with some flowers bringing them to the site of course when i. spoke he told us there are too many facts to the exact cause of the crash right now. you know there's all sorts of factors here that come into the story one of those is whether they're getting the right sort of information from the ground controllers that we have ports in question. getting the right sort of weather information as well about some other key points. and also whether they were being monitored accurately or i really don't know whether the controls were keeping the track on the aircraft heights so on because of course around airports we know where the various obstacles are through to have
1:05 pm
an impact on the safety of a landing or takeoff provided the how to all of that information given to them there should have been a routine landing you're watching r t from moscow coming up in a few minutes when fighting terror means more tell us drone attacks in pakistan and yemen keep claiming civilian lives causing an uproar among the locals and sending them into the arms of the taliban you got a report coming up on plus the life threatening cost of health care but only a few lucky patients destined to win the lottery of life report on the struggle for a multimillion dollar treatment of a deadly disease. next though just a day after admitting killing nine civilians in a bungled airstrike nato has been accused by the libyan authorities of causing at least another fifteen deaths their lives confirmed it carried out another bombing but has not responded to the allegations of civilian casualties. as the latest from tripoli for. another day has brought more death and destruction to leave
1:06 pm
a large private compound west of the capital tripoli has been leveled reduced to rubble in apparent as strike. rescuers have discovered the remains of fifteen people according to libyan officials. they have destroyed belonged to general who moody one of the people closest to colonel gadhafi he was among those who took part in the military coup to bring the libyan leader to power forty years ago the general escaped injury but most of his family died in the attack. because. this man is talking about. one of the grandchildren of the general and one of three kids killed in the incident the day of the bombing the family had gathered with friends to celebrate his fourth birthday. libyan civilians from it is when attacked in
1:07 pm
the air late hours of this morning killing fifteen people including three were children are better there is still out there on mothers. it's. the number is fifteen people nato has denied these claims just as it's never debated the death of more than eight hundred others believe in government says were killed by their bombs the nine people killed in sunday's bombing of a residential building in tripoli remain the only civilian casualties i can buy the alliance which blamed a mistake is technical failure a former pentagon official says the only thing clear ball to nato campaign is the mountain casualty toll and damage it's inflicting on the even people they try to achieve a certain level of humanitarian effort and initially but the protracted bombing is now increasingly hitting civilian targets and it's creating
1:08 pm
a very negative reaction i think it does raise the question of what is nato's role continued role going to be there as discontented nato his actions and crazies are the voices become more and more than to the voices of the libyan people was and it seems that the more anger they feel about nato the more they supported. the t.v. set for this is because the seventy's was such because it was such a hero. the right challenger but this was a. good thing to. have been helping instead of the united states this was one that was kept out i gotta. keep was i. was.
1:09 pm
we will look you up to deliver all of this is still i'm not sure this is being. backing levy what certain is the more indeed dying. r.t. tripoli. and i can tell you we've got more footage of the devastation following the bombing it is too graphic for us to show you here on it but we given the choice if you'd like to see the full picture it's on our you tube channel at youtube dot com slash r.t. . more news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images the world is seeing from the streets of canada. corp to rule the day.

the greek government which is trying to push through harsh austerity measures right now facing a no confidence vote in parliament later tonight it's survival is a critical first step in securing a new loan from the e.u. designed to prevent a defaulting on its debts and triggering a eurozone crisis if i knows where this is a given greece two weeks to force through tax hikes and spending cuts in return for a twelve billion euro lifeline the conditions though are deeply on popular with the greek public let's discuss this upcoming vote now with berman from the labor party joining us live from brussels mr berman very very thanks for being on r.t. you're a strong proponent of bailing out greece why do you think it is so important the grace of voids a default. well you know if greek would default. it would be a domino effect for perhaps portugal spain because it would clear message to the markets that the euro zone countries are not ready to save greece so which country would they be ready to save in the end it would be the crack down the end of the
1:11 pm
eurozone as a one whole with with the southern european countries you would get a market song and i don't know what you what else you would have but it would be a terrible blow to the european unity and to the european economy and it would be a catastrophe for the economy of greece but it isn't another bailout simply staving off what may be the inevitable anyway and throwing good money after bad it is inevitable to help the greeks out of this crisis of course every little last time it didn't work yes. no because the ministers of finance and that is something they are to blame for the ministers of finance of the eurozone did not show enough resolve and did not take the right and the radical decision to help greece out once and for good they gave one portion under conditions and reconstitute the negotiating on the next next phases now the greek government is to blame to any greek opposition is to blame because they should show national unity and understand
1:12 pm
the necessity of meeting the conditions that have been set by the i.m.f. and by the eurozone in the run up to this no confidence votes not just of your shoulder we were seeing pictures live pictures coming through from athens of people making their feelings known on the streets there. they're not happy the greeks are they going to say maybe you're throwing him under the euro train here just to save the troubled currency because if you do this money. if the greater e.u. pays or this money the great people are going to say they're going after labor frankly savage austerity laws the tax rates for generations are going to be awfully hard they're not going to be happy. no the greeks are not happy nobody's happy actually in the eurozone because we have had to save the banks who are ultimately to blame for what has happened in the crisis of two thousand and eight the financial crisis the banks did something extremely wrong that did not save themselves but what we do need is make the greeks understand and i think most of
1:13 pm
them do understand that you cannot live. with such a huge debt on your shoulders you have to get out of it now fortunately the greeks can raise much more taxes than they do now and they started already last year they raised two percent more taxes than they did the year before from from thirty seven percent. to thirty nine percent g.d.p. which is a huge increase in one year time it is very harsh for the greek is very difficult for the greeks but it is unavoidable and i think that's. a tax on the banks which would which would. which would. make the bird in the business a bit lighter for the greeks a tax on the banks in europe would be an important step a financial transaction tax with which we could we could do something for the greeks and all the countries in difficulty looking at a previous example of just picking one out the air maybe an outright default could
1:14 pm
be an option for greece i'm thinking back to the nineteen eighties thinking about large untamed it was an awful trouble they're about to default but it did prove that a nation can devalue would currency it was like the dollar at the time become a competitive economy just a few years it managed to turn things around by going by itself why can't greece. now i think this is a wrong calculation if greek would step out of the euro and default on its debt then many many firms and employers would be bankrupt too in greek in greece because there. is also expressed in europe the country would go bankrupt europe the greek banks would go bankrupt it would be total poverty for greece for many many years to come for decades so this is not an option what would be an option however is that the eurozone says listen this is these debt we will take it over for you we will give you. your loan with a low rent or acceptable rent not the twenty eight or twenty five percent rent that
1:15 pm
the that the market would give a low and acceptable rent you'll have ultimately to pay this back we will see later if greece will be able to pay everything back but it is necessary to get out of this crisis this way and you cannot ask greece to step out and to accept to become a developing country within european union or i thais permanently pay joining us there from brussels on the program and they give us your views on this story tonight you're welcome well so we'll give you his views on it as well arty's financial guru most cuz he says that greeks are being fooled into paying off a debt they're not responsible for if you'd like to hear more about that more from the man you can catch more of his thoughts on the scandals beyond the economic turmoil in greece as he sees it at seven thirty pm g.m.t. also on our web site as well of our team dot com streaming right now. medical treatment as a lottery where less than half the patients live to see their killer that is the

nightmare scenario facing parents of children with deadly hunter syndrome here in russia where extortionate costs and a lack of state support are literally snuffing out young lives not is it going to boy reports. the first match followed in february he's here fourteen according to his birth certificate he looked half that he's hearing he was rapidly declining his vision almost gone he responded to only to this strokes of his mother who gave him to everything to care for him. happy just to wake up and see him breathing sometimes he smiles and it's the greatest thing for me. he wasn't always this way they just five he knew the point his mother is reading to him now by a hard on he was actually of an affectionate like cats and talked about being a driver step by step his house began to deteriorate his mother rushed from one
1:17 pm
doctor to another until last year he was finally diagnosed with hunter syndrome a genetic condition that means he's body gets rid of toxins it's extremely rare and extremely expensive to treat missing without treatment doctors say he may soon die if we get the drug his body will be slowly clean stop the toxins money may be able to walk again and play and enjoy life like other kids sierra leone hospital though it was almost eight hundred thousand dollars beyond comprehension for you lana whose husband left the family with the first signs of the disease she petitioned all sorts of organizations there was a boat to see the local authorities when in april they finally agreed to provide the money for the drug bag then this piece of paper seemed to follow this license to life. when i got this letter i was so hopeful it meant that my child would live. there waited weeks then months in early june voters
1:18 pm
health took a turn for the worst and he died never having seen the promised drug. most people agree that losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a parent but it's not the worst thing for her is to leave the rest of her life knowing that her child could have been saved but the treatment was there and the money was found. wrecked tape or administrative procedures whatever you call it. was never given a chance. to say there was absolutely no way to speed things up there in the region where you live and leave is an impoverished mostly agricultural province in central russia but what is treatment would have accounted for about a quarter of all how subsidies. are the treatment of this boy in military terms is equivalent to almost cancer. and we're talking about thousands of people yet we
1:19 pm
still made a decision to allocate this money but before this we need to conduct some budget restructuring and to hold attended by and now these procedures are almost complete and we expect the drug to be here by the end of june well it's already too late to help fellow into the air with even money may save a little boy just very kilometers to the south at least seven year old was also diagnosed with contra syndrome. a few years before the damage becomes of record his parents believed to save their son this state has to step in. no single family can deal with. the cost of the drug is simply unreal the local authorities often refused to cover this one think the. out of about two hundred fifty children with hunter syndrome in russia doesn't have a receiving medical treatment it's a postcard lottery available in richer areas like mosco and almost unimaginable in

poor towns and that despite the fact that when it comes to this citizenship they're all supposed to be playing on this thing. it's a work of art scene aerial danger. the latest drone attacks in pakistan over reportedly killed twelve people only nine of them confirm the taliban fighters know the growing number of civilian deaths there means that more angry locals are joining the militants and with the u.s. now turning its attention to yemen to the uproar looks set to become even louder. the u.s. is looking to expand its war on terror but its methods are under fire in pakistan in the one year that cia drone strikes killed seven hundred civilians but netted only five actual militant leaders of. pakistan in the number of casualties that result because of the drone strikes. stringless
1:21 pm
like the taliban and al qaeda and other groups in pakistan to recruit new numbers and they're doing that. so 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 how on do we support governments or large ones when do we say enough is enough most governments lie to each other and so a business gets done washington now sees yemen as the most dangerous outpost and he's planning to step up drone attacks on the country establishing a base in the persian gulf specifically for that purpose especially now when bin ladin swoop placement i am and also ari is not to be building are already significant presence in yemen. the u.s. had been cooperated with yemeni counterterrorism forces in targeting al qaida but
1:22 pm
they've since left the field preoccupied instead with the nationwide turmoil against the sollie regime that means the americans are likely 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 u.s. military is legally under expect more bombs to fall on yemen when the u.s. starts to hit people who are members of the 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 one attack there the american military presumably at an all kind of training camp ended up killing dozens of women and children in another strike the year ago a drone mistakenly killed a deputy governor in yemen his family and eight with the expansion of the wrong war it seems to go on to seeking only in the south illegal mining on quieter and they
1:23 pm
say some of them may be turning them visible on the face smartly not having to make it work on the borders of the state and the pair of bombings and the lack of accountability when it comes to the city and that feature is that more paradoxically one strategy is what the mayor is marketing and fostering terror at the same time i am getting. closer programs continue just let you know later this we tell you the story of a us world war two veteran who is outraged by what he believes is the indifference of his country towards the memory of foreign soldiers really interesting program not see that one already it's on average shortly tonight but it's business first katrina say with the top stories in the world of business in just a few. hello

and welcome to aunty's business put us in the euro is facing a slow dance says former british foreign secretary jack straw even the optimists recognize the currency is vulnerable to shop declines can ranks low from saxo bank explains how he thinks this will impact on russia. but the thing with russia to remember is that no matter what really happens internally still regarded for the most part as an emerging market economy and as such as much as odds on want to use the fries there is very much a risk on risk off mantra operating within the water financial markets now as with any other emerging market economy when is a general response. economies and countries such as russia are in favor and that means increased foreign direct investment or flow of money and as soon as the mood overall turns in the market and there's
1:25 pm
a risk off sentiment or risk aversion then just as quickly as the money came into russia it flows just as quickly out the the only thing obviously to the mind differentiate here is that obviously being rich of natural resources or will bring predominantly amongst those russia has a slightly different different nature of the impact they can play out on its economy so while the central bank maintains its policy of rising rights to battle inflation and oil stays relatively high and some of its profits russia probably shouldn't feel any more effects all over and above what it's already saying. let's have a look at the markets now oil prices reversed dramatically in gangs as traders are on easy about greece's parliamentary confidence about light sweet is trading at just below ninety three dollars a barrel while brain around one hundred ten dollars a barrel the u.s. markets are trading optimistically though and choose day the nasdaq is one take the
1:26 pm
safe in the black with the down more than three quarters of a percent up and here in moscow the trade closed on a positive note to say the l.c.s. was quietly driven high rather by oil and gas and financial stocks on every bad thing for and in my sake i'm getting half of the same. but that's all the business for this hour we'll be back with more and just under an hour's time stay with us for. headlines next.
