11:02 am
the victims and the survivors some of them have already made their way here sardars still on the way a ten year old boy who passed away at the hospital with his injuries so his family definitely going through an emotional time now it will be a tough day for their families because they have the task of identifying the of bodies of the borg and also we have spoken to some of those who were first at the scene and they were telling us about what they had seen where the plane had crashed bodies body parts and bodies all over the place let's hear from one of the witnesses about what he had experienced. first. then we heard a man screaming. so i ran to my house. well it's still very early stages to come up with one is the real investigators are still working on the case but they have had some initial theories based on physical evidence as you can see behind me this is the forest where the plane had gone
11:03 am
through its path going to the airport so it had really burned down the force also knocked out a power line and there were statements made by airport authorities about what could have happened several theories are being explored and of course the flight recorder will be essential to this investigation a commercial plane that would have landed on schedule ended up in pieces and inflames this tuple of one three four carrying fifty two people from moscow in northwestern russia crashed on a road around a kilometer from the runway airport officials say the plane hit a high voltage power line that cut off lights on the runway which also knocked out the town's electricity. at around midnight the lights went off in our house we began to check the electric transformer we heard the sound of a huge explosion we arrived at the scene of the action that was seriously damaged we could see it's just you know. there were bodies scattered around the fire. there
11:04 am
were lots of them i carried three people out of the wreckage one was either a girl or a woman i could not sell but she was larger than a man was hard to see was dark and there was a man he also wasn't heavy he was launching it on me then we carried out two more people from the wreckage in the middle of the road another man reached out his hand towards me but i couldn't make it to him everything started exploding i could not get any closer everything was engulfed by fire so henri. initial reports point to human error and bad weather conditions at the time as possible causes of the crash ground staff at the local airport claimed they had asked the pilot to make a second approach but he said he would make it the first time however investigators say there are several theories and nothing has been ruled out just yet. we're looking into several versions of what caused the tragedy these include the human factor such as an air of the crew or the ground services severe weather conditions
11:05 am
technical failure and several other potential causes but some would argue that in most plane crashes human error plays the biggest part new carpet anymore which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane itself in forty years of operation the triple of one three four has proved to be extremely reliable aircraft in previous catastrophes human error was always to blame and the same is true here the pilot should have made a second landing approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane while investigators work on the case relatives of the victims and survivors are dealing with their own grief one shared by the people of beth as avoids declaring three days of mourning tesser still you are in the russian region . the court suggests seven special forces officers have been killed and at least sixteen others wounded during an anti terror operation in russia's tiled north caucuses here fighting broke out when a group of militants have been surrounded in their hideout trying to break free
11:06 am
this crossing march artistic work has been obvious following this developing story for us if you go our significant losses among russian officers tell us what exactly what went wrong. while this operation is still continuing it's been going on for two d. it's all happening in the troubled republic of kyrgyzstan in the caucasus in a forest area so perhaps the best card for getting the operation for the special forces is started with the authorities surrounding a group of militants what could be tried to break through and that's reportedly one some of the police officers were killed when two reports there is intense fighting still and losses on both sides of the figures on that or quite different official say that five police officers were killed whilst reports in the media suggest this figure is seven and sixteen others work were injured in the fighting as well and there are also reports that when it comes to the militants five of them have been
11:07 am
have been killed as well during the course of this operation although this has not yet been officially confirmed still it's still continuing in fact the authorities have also deployed kavi old artillery including tanks and helicopters to assist them in this operation because of course the north caucuses are is known as the cradle of terrorist in russia how much progress has been made in nevada katie and the region. unfortunately the north caucuses it is called the great author isn't in russia and president dmitri me the first been saying many times there it is one of the key goals of his administration to strengthen security in the court this is because security there really affects the security. in the entire country and the authorities have been quite active in that region this year according to russia's police chief or the sheikh will value of around two hundred militants have been
11:08 am
killed this year alone including some militants chiefs in chiefs there in the corpuses and. it's a very important area for the authorities there are trying to break various terrorist cells and there are a connection with al qaida and if you talk about that you started for example the same republic where the events are unfolding right now just last week the our police found and destroyed what they called was a factory of death an underground weapons factory where they found numerous homemade explosive devices will be more controls which could have been used in terrorist attacks across the entire a country also just last week police announced that they've eliminated personal been will be have been searching for since last a new year's day he was supplying a terrorist attack which went wrong actually the female suicide bomber who was supposed to all conducted exploded before her she could she could conduct this this
11:09 am

11:10 am
so weak. it's considered by many to be the best place of democracy but increased now the whitening gap between the aims of the people and the government is creating explain. that we are a mix of people talking of political dollars and we are here all together to say that we cannot be on the vis pleasure we cannot fold. the measures taken on the measures that they take for us without us and we want to think of large bug demonstrations held in the central square now on a daily basis with some of the protests turning violent protests to stay the suffocating take ask nothing compared to the measures that they fail a strangling their economy the people are being refused their rights to drugs what policies are going to be implemented upon them and of course the greek
11:11 am
government is an accomplice to this of popular sovereignty i mean we're not we're not anymore in the proper sense a sovereign country when the i.m.f. can dictate policy will be european will be said be under your opinion and the i.m.f. the so-called protocol can come and say listen these are these are the measures you're going to implement you are going to implement them whether you like it or not we can see you know we're facing a very peculiar form of dictatorship by the european union the european central bank and the i.m.f. here a finance chiefs a desperate not to see the first year raising suffering default and they're rising concerns about the crisis that could trigger throughout europe but i think terms of a domino effect if. the nouns are to fall this is their problem reason why are europeans are helping greece but in fact we
11:12 am
are hearing greece because they don't want this domino effect because they want to pay for all very shores of greece. sixteen percent of the quick went full sun employees western economic conditions here increased the euro is a dream it seems is a. people were real fans would be full of. people right there were uprising there would be a lot of violence in the streets but people have said that when they're turning out into the streets and then millions and the government continues to push ahead with the proposed measures well then they don't have democracy anymore the government is trying to bribe people refuse to be governed in this way every day that disconnect becomes more and more dangerous this very peaceful pay above the reef tops and nothing's really a world away from what's been happening on the streets recently the question a lot of people have been asking is just when will greece reach boiling point will
11:13 am
anyone who was on the streets of athens to witness the violence well know that it's already past that point because to the lot of people that i was skiing is really how much further does this guy so let's see happens. over more of sorrows insight into the problems in greece have online if you want to learn how the peaceful protests turned hostile visit her blog on our website dot com also there. is the end of an era legendary media personality glenn beck is farewell to fox news and launches his own pay to view on my network. the fundamental human rights of millions of transatlantic passengers traveling from
11:14 am
europe to the united states could be violated according to lawyers from the european commission the u.k.'s guardian newspaper says they hold a proposed deal between the us and e.u. allowing america store the personal data of passengers illegal under the agreement u.s. officials would have access to credit card details phone numbers and home addresses of european passengers as part of its terror measures but member of the european parliament gerard batten says the deal will only result in yet more spying on europe's people. it certainly seems to me to be disprove this disproportionate and intrusive in the amount of information that they actually want on travelers and it could well be illegal especially under existing data protection legislation i queried that before when speaking on this subject in the parliament they want a normal amount of information about people their personal details credit cards travelling companions even the bizarrely they say that they won't categorize
11:15 am
information in terms of political philosophical or religious beliefs and it would seem to me the one criteria that would help you to find terrorists who might be planning to blow up an airplane or an airport would be on the basis of political religious or philosophical belief so that seems rather odd to me in terms of this information the americans get to keep it for fifteen years my understanding of this directive is that the member states will only get to keep it for five years and i think it's bad enough having your own big brother state created in the european union without have been subjugated to an american big brother state as well by the same method but we're always told that these things are done to protect us from you know terrorism and organized crime and we all want to be protected from that of course we do and we have to have proportionate laws to in order to do that but i think these things should be reached by international agreements of everybody cooperates truly cooperate rather than is forced to do it we're all in the same boat regarding terrorism and organized crime so we should all be cooperating
11:16 am
