now but matters are far from settled with opposition leaders now under investigation for allegedly plotting to topple the islamist president. just joined us for a good evening chits nine pm here now in moscow you're watching a roundup of the big stories of the last seven days here on r.t. and to start five people have now died as a result of yesterday's plane crash when that passenger jet overshot the runway at one of russia's busiest airports one of the wounded flight attendants died of her injuries in hospital on sunday it took off to a four airliner crashed through a fence and into the side of a major highway breaking into three parts as it did all eight people on board the crew members the crash ten kilometers from the city center this. this is video
taken by a motorist dashboard camera which captured the moment of impact. were the cause for the people on the highway at the time a very lucky escape but an instant which clearly left them shocked as well the driver could be heard on the video breathing very deeply as he tries to pull over following on from what they all just witnessed. earlier my colleague carrie johnson talked to a witness who stopped his car and got out to help the injured including the flight attendant who since died in hospital he explained to us how he found and shared some of the dramatic video he shot. her with i was the first to get there i saw the flight attendant asking for help to get the other flight attendant out so we had to go inside the plane me and a few other volunteers. we followed the blood trail looking for her and finally found her further down the cabin we carried her out and try to get her to the highway she had some very bad thing and head injuries and both the legs were broken
her eyes were hurting from the jet fuel that had come out she was in a really bad shape but still conscious about it did she same thing at all. she kept saying that your eyes and legs were hurting and i was asking to be put on the ground she was in a shock and disoriented so there were only four or five people who volunteered to help together with me others were too scared to go near the planes as the engine was in fire and they couldn't put it out for twenty minutes so we were the only ones to give some help. but as you mentioned the crash is no clue on the lives of five people are on board the other three still in a critical condition now investigators are trying to fathom out why that topalov for careered off the end of the runway and it's a relatively new type of aircraft which had never before been involved in a deadly crash at his riff and outlines how the tragedy happened step by step. the twenty ninth of december the last working day of two thousand and twelve in russia
four pm businesses closed offices forgotten until the next year families friends employees jump into their cars and escape the busy capital he's got highway heads to the west a region where most of the luxury states and country houses are located traffic jams are common with a song with a day and they saw most of the year but want to lock the road is almost empty. passengers come out of the car to see what the sound was a big stack to see anything but not this. just minutes before that and simpler to know for what number ninety six i think is when the little apple to south florida will tell you why and for all the chart
republicans there is on board and this is very telling the street return home and the carmel celebrations the first times it's unsuccessful something goes wrong the criticize to try again the plane makes around over the airport and begins to send in for a second time when they sign the plane touches down but can stall as three kilometer on a ways they had but still the airline is moving too fast big fear is true and that moment most likely knows already they will not make it the jets reaches the end of the runway runs into the fans but still continues moving it finally stops after overrunning the asteroid by four hundred meters the plane breaks into three parts and tail is lying over the whole year the road people can easily see its number or a stick for four seven the middle part just bog misses away the cockpit already partially damaged after the crash with a science falls right at the edge of the highway it's
a miracle indeed the road is empty at that time this is a ten lane highway the wreckage is only on one of the lanes traffic continues on at least three here even after the tragedy there is passing by slowing down to see what happens they left it and left one culprit while on the rolls a very road they usually drive every friday and everybody sings as that moment was if i had come minutes earlier or was eve i would have been on that airplane people come out of their cars and try to help out those in the cockpit already that. weather conditions technical failure and pilot error are among investigators main causes of the use it in but most likely a combination of reasons behind the fatal crash however a plane hitting a busy highway in one of europe's biggest cities could have left a much more devastating trail of destruction. there wasn't enough log for everyone
on that saturday evening. national party moscow region. where more pictures and eyewitness accounts from the scene are available for you on our website we can also find out more about the plane itself is it r.t. dot com. take a look at more news now from new year's day the adoption of russian children by u.s. citizens will no longer be possible after president putin signed the measure into law this a tit for tat response to america's sanctions against russian officials which it sees as human rights violators ridiculous goes more on this diplomatic spat. you have to understand that the law this so-called dental magnitsky law actually deals primarily a with imposing travel and financial strictures on the number of american officials and persons who have committed crimes against russian citizens and only only part of the law actually bans the adoption of russian children
a by american citizens it has been in part inspired by the case of a russian toddler who was adopted by the american family in two thousand and nine and died in their custody several months later after his father left him in a locked in the car in the blistering heat for nine hours the russian lawmakers feel that the american law system does not provide adequate adequate protection for the russian kids and also does not punish those responsible for the deaths of russian kids for example do you think of his father adoptive father walked away with a fine aside from this new law russian lawmakers are also pledging to improve the lives of your friends and also improve foster care situation in russia but this new particular law is seen as a response to the so-called magnitsky act which was adopted in the united states just a couple of weeks ago. which entails a list of russian officials whom the united states believed to be involved in the case. a russian lawyer who was charged with tax evasion put in for
livery confinement and then died while in custody now so game against his family friends and several few unwise organizations believe the charges against one of these key were trumped up and that he died in custody from. these two acts are seen as the latest developments in the ongoing a tit for tat is put diplomatic battle which seems to be going on despite the a reset button pushed several years ago. russian studies in history professor steven cohen from new york and princeton university says he's never been under any illusions about russian u.s. relations. so there is an old russian saying we're friends are also deeds a lot of people in moscow and in washington when they pass the magnitsky act and now the ban on adoption in moscow may have thought they were just talking showing off playing grandstanding politically as we say in america but these words have
consequences they have bet they feel all this new cold war atmosphere which is enveloping the relationship between our two countries it's going to affect american relations with russia regarding afghanistan regarding missile defense regarding syria regarding iran these are very serious matters but bamma has continued the policy toward moscow begun by president clinton a democrat and continued by president bush a republican that policy is advancing nato toward russia's borders building missile defense on russia's borders interfering in russia's internal politics most recently the street demonstrations this is the same policy that began twenty years ago with the soviet union. iran's rolling out the big guns in the persian gulf these days to run undertakes a massive navy drills in the strategic strait of hormuz to show the world what it's got here if trouble comes calling we're talking about that in a few minutes time plus our team looks back the for the twelve and how it of the
world's most famous whistle blower who went from house arrest in britain to asylum seeker. ages president morsi has made an attempt to ease political tensions in the country calling on the opposition now doing gaijin dialogue but his offer was met with skepticism since it came shortly after the launch of an investigation into his three top opponents the chief prosecutor citing allegations that opposition leaders including nobel prize winner mohamed el baradei incited their supporters to topple morsi earlier this week it was announced the divisive new constitution was approved by over sixty percent of egyptians in a two stage referendum the opposition claims though the islamist draft a document in streisand's sharia law and only got a yes vote because of fraud we have clark a world affairs contributor for britain's guardian newspaper explain to us why morsi doesn't feel secure even after winning the referendum. i think he wants to sort of deflect attention from the economy because the underlying probably the biggest is the economic crisis one of four egyptians are without jobs poverty is on
the rise he just ended subsidies on fuel which means that the prices of gas and city are going to rocket and so this is a kind of a sort of smokescreen for him and he was very keen to get the opposition tied up in the legal challenges to sort of stop them from focusing on opposing him on the issues where he's very weak and i think also he be worried that you know a sizable minority thirty six over thirty six percent of people voted against the constitution and the fact seems to be that that he said is on the way. and i think that obviously you know i think we can see more protests in the new year more big news stories that made the headlines for us in the last seven days right after this break. i never thought i could earn a living messmate. natale issue of oil is the norm or should test small arms so
there's a lot almost machine building ploy and not obvious sourced count of all the weapons she's fired over the past twelve years. i got so used to it sometimes my friends ask me to join them at the rifle range and i say no wait i'm so tired of shooting. the planet's history goes from making firearms doing world war two to ballistic missiles from nuclear submarines during the cold war the bulk of the soviet industry was moved here in the 1940's to flee the advancing germans so if you were also became the heart of soviet military production closed off to foreigners for hoffa's century it thrived on the massive moods of the soviet military when the u.s.s.r. collapsed but life here was shaken to the core but some adapted to better than others. this is the year old truck factory rush is the number one truck maker for girls with a look at how well the workplace is organized everything's done to make sure the
workers don't waste time waiting there was sold production is booming the factory has largely managed to get on to civil rails blues johnson's sold around the globe hit a base and brand new the now wait for him to be delivered to acquire seventy trucks like this one roll up the blogs going bad about every day look at about this things that absolutely huge. well i'm no formula one pilot but hopefully it if i can get up that. well i came to fight. well i was planning to get one of these to travel to one every morning that's what the cost of about forty thousand dollars i should start saving money.
fighting between the syrian government and opposition forces intensified in part of damascus and rebels claim they've targeted the presidential palace was shelved let's talk to dr ali mohammed the editor in chief of the syrian tribune magazine also a member of the syria dialogue organization as well sir thanks me with this and if confirmed today's report could be further proof i guess that the rebels possess heavy weapons and we should suppose what i'm talking porting to show the opposition's arsenal where do you think these arms are coming from move through. we don't need to do is drop through to know that they have a big arsenal the. workers that we have gone there for a long while and it's the talk in the after the and it's quite clear where they are coming from the border is. in the book that they're going to look for those with jordan are the slightly off it is well it's obvious that the international powers
are interested in allowing this work and smuggling and there are a lot of boxes like turkey or some part of the love that is the job for them if you could name these countries as you see it who are these particular countries that are supplying these weapons and where i think you think of it france is very active in and allowing the supply of the weapons and the united states is very active in pretending not to see this at least if not the participating indeed and in their open process are legally turkey some parts. never qatar and saudi arabia it's pretty obvious and it has been obvious for a long time just how crucial might this foreign military aid be the dictating the course of the fighting as it progresses. would use it. if it has that is the reason why the course of the conflict was not expelled from the outcome is well known to everybody that they're all or the opposition militia was
never to win over the syrian army they were established to create chaos to the country the reaction now for intervention is not have the likelihood that we should come up with but they are trying to make it more difficult for the syrian army and for the syrian government so as you see it what is going to give here. i'm sorry could be because how do you see it what is going to give here if it if the chaos isn't working the problems continue the still no intervention what's going to be next. what should be next is a wide dialogue between all three but as we see some of the superpowers in the world are still not ready to to pressure the opposition for dialogue and this means more and more harms of this scale eating violence but again the outcome of this violence is predetermined we need everything and it will always be winning until the superpowers really push their position but there are a lot well we heard the dire warnings the other day or the international envoy on
syria one of the nation will descend into hell unless there is dialogue do you think influential foreign powers are doing enough to press both sides into talks. with this indian government doesn't need any of this thing it's written it would be if she talks if the opposition is not ready and they don't think that is being done on their side of the need to understand that the barrel is the only we are out of this conflict and their backers need to make them understand this debt ceiling. with editor in chief of syria tribune online magazine and also as you mentioned a member of the syria organization thank you have so much free time to call. for. gun sales in the u.s. of rocketed after president obama pledged to ban certain types of automatic weapons in the wake of the sandy hook massacre but he's going to teach you can know when the panic buying public getting armed while they still can. about two weeks ago actually on this particular wall here. they are four rows down four rows across.
with everything going on in politics right now with the possible there and then everything everyone is flooding in. purchasing right away gun stores all across the u.s. are reporting record sales just two weeks after the tragic shooting at the elementary school in newtown americans are scrambling to buy the same type of weapon that adam lanza used in the connecticut shooting plus high capacity magazines and a lot of them panic buying trigger it out of fear that the white house is out to ban the weapons but this time the words need to lead to action no eight ar fifteen for this customer all sold out at the store while prices on line have gone through the rules have been going for a thousand and fifteen hundred eight hundred dollars to twenty five hundred three thousand dollars even in some cases it's just the most amazing gun buying spree
i've ever seen so many gun retailers now quite cynically refer to thieve ministrations ben talk as the obama gun stimulus that's how good it's been for their business so how do you go from a president with a tough gun control agenda to someone gun dealers call the greatest gun salesman in america manufacturers of semi-automatic rifles were poured that their market has grown thirty percent over the last four years states like north carolina iowa you have seen a one hundred percent increase in gun sales over the same period in the wake of the tragedy in newtown one of the country's biggest ammunition suppliers said they sold more than three years worth of magazines in just three days although president obama himself has so far failed to act on his pledge to ban assault weapons his words have certainly provoked action just not the type you may have wanted or someone they say is against her. going to great job for this.
review should be a third term in order to sell even more weapons many dealers hype up the gun apocalypse scenario so the very end there will be more government only. really to start. start with. but many of them don't actually see any drastic changes happening any time soon after all any significant gun control measures and up in the past ultimately clashed with the second amendment of the constitution and were subsequently scrapped. in trying to leverage you can. some american communities gun violence is sadly part of everyday life as we see later this hour indeed this often turn to the colors being worn which decide who becomes a victim at. the end of the year iran's play marked by a massive naval drills held in the strait of hormuz one of the world's busiest all shipping routes of course warships submarines jet fighters all taking part with the
aim of proving to rand is well equipped to defend its maritime borders the maneuvers come as the west builds up pressure over iran's nuclear program piling on sanctions against the country drowned want a few months ago that it could block the strait but its navy commanders say that's not on the agenda now professor said my harvard marandi from tehran university explain to us why the iranians don't think there's a danger of a military confrontation in the near future. in the sense that western countries are brutal and civilized enough to carry out an attack i think that's clear to run into the fact that western countries are imposing sanctions and cargo on it on iran they're trying to prevent iran from even importing and exporting medicine and food stuff by blocking the central bank and there are shortages of some medicines right now in iran and people have died so the fact that western countries are willing to kill ordinary people and to make people suffer i think makes it clear that. carrying out an attack on iran is something that they would contemplate if they
could but i think on the other hand the iranians believe that western countries are much weaker today than they ever were before the defeat in iraq and afghanistan the setbacks in. that israel had in lebanon in gaza make as well the economic crisis in europe in north america make it highly unlikely that the iranians have prepared themselves and i think that it has been a took deterrent to war so the i think in general the iranians feel that a military assault on iran aggression would be highly unlikely. on some other international news making headlines today during and government protests near the western iraqi city of two people wounded bodyguards for the iraqi deputy prime minister shot several reports say he was hit in the face as he gave a speech during the rally more than a week of protests now which have seen so the muslim protest against what they see is second class treatment from the shia led government. the bombing of the indian
student who was gang raped on a bus has been cremated now in new delhi earlier hundreds held peaceful candlelight vigils in the capital of the twenty three year old died from her injuries in a singapore hospital there are attacks by days of riots with protesters demanding more protection for women in the country six suspects are currently being held over there so they could face the death penalty if convicted. the launch of a groundbreaking exclusive show hosted by the world's top whistleblower julian assange shows become one of the key events that shaped the year for tape the program was recorded while the wiki leaks founder was under house arrest in britain and go voice to some of the most prominent public figures shunned by mainstream media.
it was right on the new year's eve when i went to london to see june to discuss the news so. i'm truly in a song. where she wakes we've exposed the world secret police documents from the very beginning to detain the high profile shows strong with a lot of it's as a boss or so we created this web page with big video player and video feeds containing trailers teasers sneak peeks most shows tend to have a spike and then go down to both mars it's online and you with your kids climbing it and quite a lot of study about it i think the beauty of the story is that this was quite an important piece of the julian assange show gains over a one million visits and views online and believe me or an interesting news show it's kind of an achievement but never before that we had anything like that on t.v.
when. the person sitting on the house arrest would give the boys to quiet quite a few people around the world whose position of the world doesn't fit in the mainstream you depict a. great series of shows they were as well and i now just over thirty minutes from now i'll be back with more news here on out to international before that we reveal the deadly gang wars in the city of angels it's the next program after this break.
deadly rivals for decades. if you had fifteen thousand people killing each other in any other country there would be diplomats there would be mediators. self-imposed out costs from society i will cut myself chemical attack my brother understand my contact immediately. going to leave basically attack the cause of my anger and my frustration. that. stuff well into the. truth of the most violent gangs in us history. is just all model chill of the chill
with colors matching the national flag. but this country uses violence what it chooses and it legitimizes the violence they all made in america on the ati. more news today violence has once again flared up. and these are the images the world has been seeing from the streets of canada as. a giant corporations are all today.
