10:02 am
we do know is that it crashed almost immediately after taking off from the arm of the international airport that it didn't reach a very high altitude when it lost it and then it crashed into a concrete fence and then into a 2 story building it did not catch fire or there was no explosion when this happened but it happened almost immediately after takeoff very soon on the site were rescue workers and also ambulances were sent there and investigative team that will later investigate the circumstances of this of this plane crash and of course it was take your in the early morning sunrise it with there was heavy fog as you suggested all of these will be issues that investigators will have to take a very close look at but for the moment the pictures that we're seeing are in broad daylight we're seeing a virgin sea cruise there it seems that the task for the rescue crews is perhaps a far simpler one now that the sun has risen.
10:03 am
yes yes indeed now it's around noon in kazakhstan or so now the situation is as you say is much simpler for dress q. workers and also for the investigation investigators that will take over what do we know now is that around 66 people have been brought to the hospitals of which 50 have been kept in the hospital they need medical assistance and 12 are in critical condition so whilst the rescue workers and investigators are working in the freezing temperature at the site crash which is of course the city authorities are appealing to the citizens of almighty to donate blood for the ones injured that will need emergency operations and other kinds of medical help in terms of what the authorities are saying the president has been very quick to
10:04 am
say that he will prosecute anyone that he thinks is to blame yet really an investigation hasn't even begun. no indeed the investigation hasn't even begun 1st of course the rescue part has to be finished the but the reaction of the kazakhstan or thort is on all levels from of the ministry of industry and infrastructure all the way to the president was indeed really quick the ministry immediately suspended and grounded all 400 planes which is a type of plane that crashed also old lanes of the air con from the are grounded and they're saying it's going to stay so until the investigation determined the cause of this plane crashing so indeed apart from condolences to the families of people that died in this accident they were very quickly in reacting to the incident in south and in promising that there will be
10:05 am
a thorough investigation that and anyone that is to blame or are responsible for this accident will be will be prosecuted alexandra thanks for the update of course we'll continue to monitor what's going on in neighboring kazakhstan has obviously a natural border with russia with you through the day thank you. moving on now to the middle east where israel's can take a prime minister benjamin netanyahu has fended off a challenge to his leadership from within his own party rival gideon's to convince the could members that it was time for change but they stuck with netanyahu despite his indictment for corruption and further challenges are expected before yet another general election in march the tough to get impossible from west jerusalem. for the 1st time in 5 years likud members had the chance to elect someone other than benjamin netanyahu as their leader on thursday they chose him again solidifying his nickname as the magician because of his ability to pull off victory
10:06 am
after victory ginia who campaigned heavily to beat his challenger former interior and education minister gideon sar i know who her going to be brought about great things to the country and in order for us to continue bringing about great things to the country we need to go boat for me for you. even though netanyahu is the 1st sitting prime minister to be indicted on corruption charges his popularity has remained steady among his right wing base a feeling that sars tactics of sitting on the bench and trying to do anything active in in the public fields is wrong i prefer people who take action. source pitch to voters is that netanyahu failed to form a government twice why would he be able to reach a different outcome a 3rd time he warned maintaining the status quo could mean likud loses power in national elections in march. sars supporters cited concerns over the corruption
10:07 am
charges trailing netanyahu charges he calls a politically motivated witchhunt the saar camp has also alleged election meddling and voter intimidation but there's a bit in going to decay into the multiplicity of chrome within the party and generally. israel is in the midst of an unprecedented political crisis netanyahu has until january 1st to ask the knesset to grant him immunity he'll need a 61 majority vote he was unable to get that same number of seats to form a government in the last 2 elections and on tuesday the supreme court is expected to rule if an indicted sitting prime minister is allowed to form a government natasha going to al-jazeera west jerusalem. libya's internationally
10:08 am
recognized government has made a formal request for turkish military support turkey's president earlier said he's willing to send soldiers to tripoli politicians and could vote within the next few weeks or whether to approve the deployment but who would have the war had has more from the libyan capital. this is southern outskirts of the libyan capital tripoli where there's been heavy fighting for the past 8 months. forces loyal to warlord have to are now using artillery fire to advance with the help of russians who are reportedly leading forces as they take control of civil important locations including military camps near the salon had a neighborhood. turkey says its are planning to send troops to help you and your kidneys the government it wants to prevent have to his forces from seizing the libyan capital turkish president trichet tayyip erdogan says parliament will voting
10:09 am
january on a mandate to send troops to libya in charlotte. god willing on the 8th or the 9th of january we will pass this in our parliament we will be responding to the invitation. we have given i will give all forms of support to the tripoli government which is fighting against just general backed by arab countries and europeans. during a news conference in tunis libya's interior minister warney that libya's neighboring countries will be affected if true police falls he says half there is being backed by civil regional countries. we know very well there are a morality forces an airbase in the east of the country there are also forces from sudan and chad they have all been brought by have target has given them bases and airports in libya without any agreements we hope that the situation is worse. as have to as warplanes target civilian locations in and around tripoli. who has
10:10 am
voiced concerns over a possible turkish military deployment to libya while president erdogan said last week turkey will not stay silent over what he called russian backed mercenaries supporting have to have to his forces are supported by advanced weapons and troops from several countries including russia france the united arab emirates and egypt turkey appears to be one of very few friends of the tripoli based government who are prepared to offer more than mere words to support it. would have to go ahead and hear. shepparton see is a washington d.c. he says it's hard to understand what the u.s. strategy in libya really is. there's never really any and a firm line on what's the u.s. official position is on libya all we get is constantly shifting messages whether
10:11 am
this is to do with strategic ambiguity well thought out foreign policy or whether it's due to factionalism and confusion within the trump administration itself as to what it stands for what it wants to stand for is unclear but we have this phone call between the u.s. and egyptian presidents this is what the the u.s. readout is regarding libya the leaders rejected foreign exploitation and agreed that parties must take urgent steps to resolve the conflict before libyans lose control to foreign activists now one of those foreign actors is clearly egypt and presidency who was on that call let's look at the egyptian media and look at that that presentation of that conversation l.c.c. asserted to the american president egypt support for empowering the libyan people in achieving security and stability as well as stressed the importance of the role of the libyan national army after us forces in fighting terrorism threatens the whole middle east region so that would seem that they're all on the same page but
10:12 am
that means and that the u.s. is with egypt in supporting. american position has changed quite a bit initially it was with the u.n. with the internationally recognized position of supporting the government in tripoli that it was reported in around. egypt saudi arabia. trying hard to start positive so we say to general have to and that was followed in may with a phone call between donald trump which was seen as deeply symbolic or apparently they talked about how a vision for libya that's pretty significant stuff given that might compare just a few weeks earlier had been had been condemning. but then we had those reports which russia still denies of russian mercenaries all mercenaries that he's being paid for by russia who are actively supporting health then we had an official state . from the state department pompei or another saying look there has to be a cease fire immediately we don't necessarily support a housetop entirely clear but they were saying look this has to stop and now we have this phone call between c.c.
10:13 am
the trump apparently they're all the same page so does that mean then that the trump insertion is back in with health care and the egyptians and so on so we don't really we don't really know what's going on we don't know if this is policy or just part of that pulling back from the middle east where donald trump as we love long reported feels he doesn't have a dog in the fight of the time and if the europeans want to get involved iran else it will get involved let them sort it out obviously there are other people in the top of ministration who feel differently in january the 8th one of the parliament ariens in libya said will vote on this by john yoo the 8th that actually is what i believe that i'm approaching is supposed to be in turkey meeting type. 2 in or greater new gas pipeline and by the way a lot of this is to do with gases so it is often the case so that's quite significant if they have a parliamentary vote while putin is that already there whispers of putin and coming together with some sort of important initiative while he's that putin not terribly happy about the idea of turkish intervention but this is adds to all this the
10:14 am
general confusion in a very very complex proxy war. that will still have the old al-jazeera back appeals to the u.s. top court its diplomatic row with the libya intensifiers. we'll tell you what your power to do was ships and planes to the middle east do stay with us here but i'll just. head though that some pretty fine weather across central areas of europe but it really is just one the slice across much of the continent some very unpleasant by the cell across the southeast this is a storm system on its way towards the east still and there is more rain pushing in as you can see that across western areas of europe but we have got some nice nice things this is the southeast of poland the mountains in particular really picking up quite a good amount of the last few days and more in the full cost now the good news of
10:15 am
that storm through that the eastern end of the med is that it's beginning to wind down so by friday still a few shows you will see there tuckey reducing quite a lot of rain and some snow again and then quite a line of snow to across the alps as you can see some rain of course in the mild air and it is pretty mild really across much of western europe 11 celsius in paris on friday 9 in london and the rain not making it too far across the u.k. becoming very cloudy those we have through saturday but then as you can see a slice of clear conditions across much of the west cooling is europe but some good clear skies and then a lot more snow working its way through poland and on into ukraine as we head into saturday now to the south again northern africa again conditions here are improving the winds are easing through friday and saturday but feeling cool just 16 inches.
10:16 am
looking back and watching all this there with me is a whole rob a reminder of our top stories at least 15 people have been killed after an ally the crush to take off in kazakhstan on the back a jet came down matty smashing through
10:17 am
a wall before hitting a house 100 passengers and crew were on board. in israel can take a prime minister benjamin netanyahu is fended off an internal leadership challenge that could party veteran gideon saad hope to convince members that it was time for change also libya's internationally recognized government has made a formal request for turkish military support that's according to the voices news agency turkey's president said he's willing to send soldiers to tripoli politicians in ankara could vote within the next fortnight on whether to approve the deployment . a japanese warship reconnaissance craft are being sent to the gulf to protect japanese or imports the deployment follows last week's visit to iraq as president but 2 percent of japan's crude oil imports are from the gulf arab countries iran denies links to several recent attacks on oil tankers well jeff
10:18 am
kingston as a professor of asian studies at temple university in tokyo he says japan's prime minister shinzo obvious trying to balance various interests he's an awkward position he's trying to thread the needle he's got basically 3 audiences he's dressy one is the trump administration that asked to join the coalition the other is president rouhani of iran abbie's key to maintain good relations and the 3rd audience is domestic abbie's keen to revise the constitution and remove the pacifist article so. holiness intelligence gathering not joining the u.s. coalition is meant to placate trump you know to avoid the accusation of being a free rider but not undermine iranian relations and not cause domestic backlash because there's deep money at the security alliance with the united states and only
10:19 am
about 3537 percent of people support the dispatch of the vessels to the mideast clearly and skin in the game last june when are they was dizzy in tehran the recent attack on a japanese owned vessel so there is clearly japanese interest involved but they don't want to clash they want to avoid that because clearly the priority for our day in this next diet session in 2020 is to get his fellow politicians to endorse revision of the past as to should. let's return to our top story now the back airplane crash in kazakhstan which has left at least 15 people dead geoffrey thomas is editor in chief of airline ratings dot com an airline safety rating website joins me now via skype from perth good to have you with us on the program sir perhaps too early to draw any conclusions as to what caused the crash but where
10:20 am
does the investigation begin. well the investigation begins. we're not sure at this stage whether the pilot survived this impact because we have 15 confirmed dead it's not clear as to whether the crew survived. if they did of course that would be. quickly we would be rather easy to establish what happened other than that the cockpit voice recorder the flight data recorder will be the 1st things that the crash investigators will be looking to find and to have them transcribed to understand what happened in this tragic crash indeed to the flight box recorders are incredibly important in an investigation so let's just talk about this particular jet because for our viewers a fokker is a much smaller airplane than the large $74.00 seven's all the triple 7 that we see in the skies and at airports. look indeed the fucker 100 is
10:21 am
810900 change state or a blind 20 engine built by the famous foka aircraft company of holland that unfortunately they no longer are in business but the aircraft is fully supported by other organizations. but the talk of 100 was in production through the eighty's and the ninety's it cease production in 1997 and they've built about 290 of them. into interesting enough because the plane itself is so rugged and well built that they are in very high demand and it's very difficult to get a good flock of 100 today. and their life seems to go on because they're if they're well maintained they've got a very long structural life and so they're they're a great little or line yeah indeed the but they're not infallible are they i mean they have been accidents crashes with this me and bar in 2012 macedonia crash in
10:22 am
1993 brazilian crash in 1996 this as you say is a twin jet other crashes have involved fockers with propellers but in this particular case where did the authorities in terms begin the investigation will it be an internal investigation or do they bring international investigation investigators in as well. look they will bring international and investigators in they will bring in the organization that supports the or a plan i think it's far services they'll also bring in rolls royce the builder of the the engines they may elect infective effect of bringing in say the british cia or the european authorities who might have more expertise in this particular airframe. to help in the investigation but like most air crash investigations all the parties to the aircraft construct and destruction or the
10:23 am
engine construction and sometimes the avionics suppliers are involved in a crash and there's a suggestion indeed that we are only walked within 7 hours of this accident south so very early doors are such as geoffrey thomas thanks so much for joining us from perth and thanks for your insight thank you. government protests are expected to continue in iraq on friday after the president pledged to resign over the candidate for prime minister demonstrations erupted on thursday as president barham salih submitted his resignation letter to parliament instead of naming assad as prime minister danny was nominated by iraq's largest parliamentary bloc which is backed by iran protesters are demanding an independent candidate. said to be america's now i believe years foreign minister says mexico is making a mistake by taking its espionage complaint to the international court of justice but denies spying on the mexican embassy in the past and intimidating diplomats the
10:24 am
falling out follows mexico giving asylum to former president evo morales after he resigned in the verb during weeks of protests at his reelection. and you'll never see. that i believe the mexican government would risk bringing a lawsuit before the international court for something i don't believe even happened it would be rejected immediately i think they'll retract the decision because noise police forces entered any diplomatic premises or violated the vienna convention on diplomatic relations. manuel repeller mexico city with more on the diplomatic spat between the 2 countries. there's been a friction between bolivia and mexico for about a month now since the start of bolivia's interim government and of course it was mexico that was the 1st country to offer political asylum to 'd former bolivian leader evill mortalities what's going on now is a sort of war of words that's building up tensions that are building up between
10:25 am
diplomats between authorities in both nations on one end you have bolivian officials saying that mexico is harboring criminals is harboring terrorists at mexico's embassy in the bolivian capital mexico saying that what they're doing is pollute providing political asylum to 9 individuals 2 of which are former ministers that serve under the leadership of president ebel mortalities and the latest that we've heard on thursday is mexico appealing to the international court of justice the i.c.j. and the united nations to help mediate this ongoing dispute the last that we heard from mexican president on this one a little bit without order is for cooler heads to prevail saying that he hopes that common sense will prevail as the student dispute drags on diplomatic ties between the 2 countries. still still exist we don't know if that's going to continue to be the case as i mentioned this war of words that's as collating the last that we heard from bolivian officials today was from former president hope who weighed in he's been recently appointed as
10:26 am
a special delegate to represent bolivia to the international community he called the mexican president a quote coward a bully and a shameless apologist for drug traffickers these are very strong words strong allegations from both sides from both bolivia and and from mexican officials as we said was named a special delegate before the international community we still don't know of a date set by the international court of justice but in the meantime the sort of tension between the 2 nations continues to grow and the allegations from the mexican side is that there is harassment that there is an increased police presence we can even confirm that on thursday there were at least 50 police units and 10 vehicles parked outside of mexico's embassy. a former ivory coast rebel leader and presidential candidate could face life in prison after being accused of planning a coup. abandon the planned trip home when a warrant was issued for his arrest on monday the country's public prosecutor says they captured audiard sorrow discussing the plot they also alleging was gathering
