airport's the captain mir yusupov had just seconds to make the right decision when he discovered the strike caused engine failure with 16 tons of fuel on board and no ability to make it back to the runway he knew that an emergency landing could result in a catastrophe to show you a little bro after we to call the engines became unstable 1st the left one and then the right one we usually simulate the situations when one or 2 engines are off despite all our efforts the plane was going down we realized that we didn't have much time just one or 2 minutes to make a decision in a blink of an eye this man with nerves of steel decided still land the aircraft in a nearby cornfield without using the landing gear and shutting off all power to prevent an explosion and various officials praised the crew for their professionalism during the spine chilling landing as well as for

a well organized evacuation that is something we acted in line with our training with simulated situations like this before so there were no surprises the passengers were disciplined listen to our instructions and evacuated very quickly they did as we expected there was no panic on board even though the landing was rough the pilot did a great job he landed the plane really kathleen just cook tell us please. do you feel now did you hurt your leg. you know it's better than i was there lying on the field so everything is rather good the landing was good the final of the did a great job landed the plane on the belly everything is fine the media was quick to make connections with the another such incidents when loss of life was a virgin thanks to a pilot the miracle on the hudson involving a u.s. airways the aircraft flown by captain chesley sullenberger and jeffrey skiles hit a flock of geese after takeoff from new york city's la guardia airport and lost all

11:06 am
a belly flop and that's basically what he did and he landed it beautifully and this is a bit like the if you remember the hudson river incidents when the plane landed on the lake the whole point is that he brought it down with the nose slightly out and so literally sailed over the cornfield and that's quite a robust crop so that helped the landing these pilots did brilliantly because they were really quite low when the bird strike took place and the engine power drops away almost completely so they had to look around for an open space in which to land and they didn't and as you can see they've done it brilliantly russia does have a history of having very good pilots that it is a profession that russians are very proud of having those who have it almost exactly 10 years ago there was what has become known as the miracle on the hudson they got a little bit higher before the birds hit them but this time they were geese and those a very big birds they lost both engines the pilot looked around the highly urbanized

11:08 am
face trial over the alleged abuse of dozens of on the rage girls on the creation of a sex trafficking network just days before his death a manhattan courts released 1200 documents relating to the case now he had repeatedly deny the charges against him last month epstein had been placed on suicide watch after that apartment attempt to take his own life well since the tycoon's death there are been numerous reports of by thick conditions he was living in some have suggested he was having to pay other inmates for protection others that he was sleeping on the floor wasn't allowed to war she either some even claim that death may not be in a suicide taking a closer look at all the speculation here is the effort to go. if there are screenwriters out there right now racking their brains over ideas for a mega juicy plot i've got a perfect one for you the life and death of convicted paedophile jeffrey epstein
11:09 am
who was at the same time a friend of the likes of presidents clinton and trump or you case prince andrew just how many skeletons in his claws a did this man have his death as a real shocker and as staggering mystery some details of it though have been revealed to the public.
11:10 am
america baffled you really can't help asking questions. even though last month geoffrey epstein apparently already tried to kill myself a source within the law enforcement reported he was only put on suicide watch for less than a week plus it's been claimed epstein wasn't checked on every 30 minutes by guards and got deprived of his cellmate and violation of the prisons normal procedure there was also a rumor that surveillance cameras malfunctioned on the night when the death happened. only a day before the inmate was found unconscious a court released 1200 pages of documents detailing numerous claims of child abuse

by him and his girlfriend was that the last drop of anguish will never find out. oh this is a giant playground for fans of conspiracy theories these have been ranging from the idea that bill clinton had jeffrey epstein killed even president trump tweeted about that one to the russia did it kind of stories president from using his massive twitter platform $63000000.00 followers to spread a deranged conspiracy theory in a statement a clinton spokesman said the suggestion that the clintons were involved is ridiculous and of course not true and donald trump knows it you know this is just more recklessness what he's doing is dangerous a guy who had information that would have destroyed rich and powerful men's lives and dead in his jail cell how predictably russian it's hilarious and ultimately
11:12 am
completely predictable that you would have leftist democrats and the media trying to pin something else on russia we haven't seen any ties to russia in the eps and steve case we haven't seen any russian oligarchs that have been on this fly list that we know of but anyway you can't turn away from the fact that mr epstein was close like i said with some of the most influential people on this planet most likely they had nothing to do with the death but all those politicians and money makers can now brave a sigh of relief because dead men don't speak the really aggravating thing to me is all the flying monkeys that are out there right now on conspiracy theories if you look at the facts of this case it was no question this was going to happen 1st of all in lock up settings like that there is no such thing as a personal privacy there there are no un control settings if rules are followed no shoelaces no belts no access to even as much as a finger nail clipper or radio show us the darn films what do the cameras have to
11:13 am
say who had access to the cameras where are they this is a remarkably simple program just 1st show us what was recorded. i want to turn attention the program to bahrain where a human rights activist has been pardoned there after almost 3 years behind bars for making critical comments online about the government by rainman tains. was jailed for promoting i'll encourage young people to launch a coup. herself alleges she was tortured and sexually abused by police officers after her arrest by rini officials say they have referred her complaint to a special investigation not just allegations relate to a local police station whose chief was trained by british police are to taylor spoke to the organization that petition for her release. enjoy yourself a former bahraini civil servant and mother of 4 was jailed in april 27th teen up he criticised the regime for hosting the motor racing show case that is formula one
11:14 am
use of gave account of the abuse and sexual assault she was subjected to at the hands of the officers she was arrested by this threaten to kill me they tried to bribe me they beat me but worst of all officers tore off my he job and attempted to strip me of my clothes before an officer sexually assaulted me in custody the pain and humiliation of that week will haunt me for the rest of my life the gist of occasion they give is the fact is she is involved in what they call it activity is . that it finishes off this means that the criticising formula one race and. reflecting good opinion. could considered to be a to act and unfortunately for her she was subject to a doing here interrogation to sexual assault and she was tortured only to interrogated about terror. spoke account which was simply just
11:15 am
a critical formula one a domestic bahrain issue while not really because he appears to me that all happened as an activist. claim in the police station headed up by brigadier far was . because trained by none other than the british police back in 2015 other son travel to belfast on a study visit basically a crash course in how to manage protesters the trip cost british taxpayers $16000.00 pounds now engineers have raised the alarm questioning how this all fits in with bahrain's human rights records. reality behind it. when i arrived at the building in morocco they blindfolded me interrogated me
11:16 am
because of my human rights activities during the interrogation the use the worst forms of physical torture they told me some harsh words threaten me and sexually abused me. the members of the national security service insulted me they threatened me with rape restricting my livelihood preventing treatment depriving that thermally of education and housing in addition to psychological and physical torture i was jailed 5 times in the past year most of the time i am banned from driving targeted jailed tortured and my cause targeted attack by rubber bullets and tear gas. one can often why is the u.k. continuing its cooperation with the regime regularly condemned by organizations all over the walled well the u.k. says that to give a helping hand in improving human rights so it's all in good faith and in the name of democracy given the high level of skill and expertise across british policing it
11:17 am
is not surprising that there is an international appetite to learn from the best we cannot stand by and criticize countries from the sidelines if we want to see wholesale changes. it probably doesn't hurt that it brings in a tidy to the arm of the u.k. home office responsible for training offices abroad house poor and over 3000000 pounds 2012 with 89 percent coming from countries where the death penalty still exists when the british government to really talk about training the police when they are really doing is empowering what we call it punitive and they are the one which pretty much training. but also rewarding them if a police officer committed an abuse or something people could resort to things like this like and was an office where you can submit complaints over the since 2012 to this date we have seen that those institutions which had been a fisheries the british training resulted in only one thing they tortured is
11:18 am
