the twenty fourth of january a suicide bomber blaze apart the packed arrivals hall at russia's busiest airport. my first thought was to get away a lot of people willing motionless even more people were being piled up near the first aid area some well ready dead they were dragged away a horrible picture. i looked at my watch and then flash and i passed out when i woke up there was a ringing in my ears it was a sour smell everything in ashes everyone was groaning three or four men were piled up on top of me the one directly above me it was wounded in the chest he took all the shrapnel. amongst the thirty five dead people for many nationalities. added when the father's golden koos then was due to marry the mother of his child cavell budrus shelves wife watched him die in front of her on the airport floor around the world families now grieving for they's who are say precisely calles.
4:03 pm
going to. have some very serious just come very close to the start paralyzation the work of god really with her but there was a two way street for her fire sometime. very soon. investigators say they've now identified the man responsible but haven't yet released the name of. russian investigators and security services have identified the suicide bomber who detonated an explosive device stuffed with metal elements at moscow's domodedovo airport on monday it was a twenty year old man from russia's north caucasus although investigators know the terrorists' name we're not going to disclose it now as we're currently working to establish the organizers and accomplices of this crime north caucasus separatist
4:04 pm
groups and extremists have been responsible for similar deadly attacks in russia. the twin bombings at the mosque a match a less than a year ago was carried out by a terror group in dagestan this attack has once again raised serious questions about the counterterrorism methods in russia and the airport and transport authorities and the police have come under heavy criticism yet the russian response has been one of resilience just hours after the attack flights had resumed and people have been visiting the hospitals today in eight bloods. those who committed these terrible acts targeting citizens of different countries expected their actions to bring russia to its knees but the wrong russia is aware of its place in the world russia will fulfill its obligations towards citizens and the world community unfortunately no state in the world is immune to terrorism terrorist attacks like this one in russia unfortunately can happen at any time anywhere in the world there is no universal remedy against this evil but one thing we can say
4:05 pm
for sure our success in battling this very thread depends on solidarity. and the official day of mourning both president medvedev and prime minister putin attended services all religions uniting to commemorate those who died in the attacks. continue to be laid at the site of the blast is a poignant reminder that in the war on terror it's once again ordinary people here on the front line in a scene of tragedy. and of mourning now it's time for action and message to the international community to stand united away together now to fight this global terrorist threat so. an award winning journalist and author on the subject of terrorism says the playing for the tragedy lies with north caucasus terrorists like al qaeda. i think the finger almost certainly points to the
4:06 pm
caucasus emirates to the islamist group based formally groups but also now spread to the neighboring republics there so you know they were i mean it was two women from stand which is to the east of here who were responsible for the bombing of the moscow metro in march of last year so i think for sure the finger will be pointing towards the back group if you look at the sort of legends that established al qaeda was built up in the war against the soviet union in afghanistan in one nine hundred eighty s. so for sure there is a great sense of inspiration from islamist groups around the world various franchises from i'll probably do you know don't need. or russian authorities are now looking into security lapses that domodedovo that let the suicide bomber reach his target but as i've bennett reported monday's blast off the triggered a wider debate on whether such attacks turn she'd be prevented. as the dust
4:07 pm
settled the blame game began diamond dead of a took the rap from russian authorities with a number of airport officials sacked but international observers made more worrying conclusions the awful truth is is that there is no way to stop the terrorists in any capital or cuts the bases you have to there are certain things you have to do especially after attack but ultimately it's very very hard protect all transport in the capital city security at domodedovo has now been increased mandatory metal detectors and baggage x. rays accompany every entrance to the building this answers one question but poses another we're not actually allowed to film inside the airport anymore since security's been stepped up but one of the problems with the new stringent checks here is that a queue of people build up just inside the airport presents exactly the sort of target at trying to avoid these pictures were filmed covertly around fifty people
4:08 pm
are packed into a tiny space with queues ten minutes long before the explosion security here was no different to most other international airports only israel's ben gurion airport is considered more secure than any other with vehicle checkpoints fingerprint scanners and compulsory passenger interviews but such resource intensive measures aren't possible at larger airports domodedovo handled twenty two million passengers last year double that of ben-gurion so what's the answer in the first call if you want to promote security the second objective you want to facilitate the flow of commerce and the third is you probably want to protect individual our privacy and the question and i would pose is where in the middle of the triangle do you want to make a law in or for russia's parliament it's about security this week the state duma gave preliminary approval to new anti terror warnings they modeled on the u.s. system. color coded alerts created post nine eleven in the government just look how
4:09 pm
much we needed this system and what of the drama did of attack what everyone is saying is that there was no relevant information and now according to the war we will have to inform the society about the threats facing russia's determination in fighting terrorists has never been questioned but its methods have now has the system you must make sure it works are the bennetts r.t. moscow. well the dumbing down of the tragedy was the first to see with dress by the russian delegation at the world economic forum in davos but where are the stakes for roster of the music of the world's financial power players with all the details coming out. all thought continues to challenge moscow's findings on last year's fatal plane crash that killed the polish president lech kaczynski but that it finally settled the debate. russia and the us are about to begin cutting
4:10 pm
their strategic atomic the new start agreement between the world's biggest nuclear powers is due to come into force within days after it was approved by the russian parliament this week. because cannot explain. after more than a year of hard line negotiating and ten more months of internal dispute it's finally done moscow and washington are stripping down their nukes first the state duma and then the federation council gave the bill the green light now that it's signed by the president only a formal exchange of ratification documents is left before the new store comes into force for the next ten years many hope it will not only restrain the two nuclear superpowers but become an example for others to form this first of all is about the security of the united states and the security of russia this is about unwinding the excesses of the cold war this is about bringing both countries back to the same level of nuclear weapons because we reached really insane levels during the cold
4:11 pm
war i think it will have real irrational implications in affect other countries as decision making as well managed to become the symbol of the restart of the lesions between moscow and washington the deal was initially backed by both presidents but it didn't come easy most of the u.s. republicans fell into opposition demanding amendments and the internal disputes stretched for months before president obama finally pushed the deal through. the congress ended up making two so-called special speedman securing washington's right to modernize its remaining strategic arms and insisting the deal would not affect america's missile defense plans but the statements are non-binding meaning they will not affect the actual implementation of the deal the original text remained untouched but unfortunately for the first time to the very public. on the war against three d. which of the rather strange but i think it was. a bomb on
4:12 pm
and in most of the obama administration and basically i don't think that was so much of it three d. russian deputies also made non-binding special statements illegally linking offensive and defensive weapons which was one of the main stumbling points in the negotiations secured moscow's right to step out of the agreement if it feels threatened by u.s. missile defense plans in europe and stressed statements previously made by the us congress do not free washington from its obligations i hope that the coming years will show that both americans and us russians show responsibility in fulfilling these obligations and that will create a new spirit of mutual confidence and trust the new start is not the first such agreement between moscow and washington the first two were signed in one thousand nine hundred one and in ninety three but neither managed to bring russia and the us
4:13 pm
this close it's expected the leaders deal will open many new doors of opportunity also moving forward on the russia's w t l accession america is very supportive but it's not enough we have to have more time as we have to have more docking mechanisms we have to have more bridges the more dependent we are the better it is for our future a future which has become a little clearer. the exchange of the ratification documents officially inforcing the new start could happen as soon as the fourth of february even though the treaty is said to reduce the number of strategic arms by over one third of its still leaves the nuclear super of ours we've got warheads to blow the entire when it into a different solar system so perhaps it's not numbers that when you start is all about trust by reducing the number of strategic russia in the united states or in forcing their strategic partnership at least for the next decade you've got to spin
4:14 pm
off the moscow so both russia and the us ratify the saying treaty but included different requirements morning graham for the british and american security information council says both moscow and washington want to reserve their right to self defense in the worst case scenario. in the end it's the same treaty the same text and these interpretations i think both sounds as if they are contradictory but they are both accurate in the sense that there is clearly a link in the preamble of the treaty between defensive and offensive forces and. russian duma is quite correct point to. us that there is nothing illegal preventing the americans from developing missile defense both for the right the russians certainly have a right to withdraw from the treaty should should they deem their security to be
4:15 pm
threatened and and these are points of fact of the treaty so it's not that they are ratifying two separate treaties the same treaty is there and in the end i think it's quite right to say that this is the first step in a very long process of confidence building and we said. well that was paul ingram from the british american security information council that. antigovernment protesters in egypt are ramping up the pressure on the battled president hosni mubarak as violence has been a raging since tuesday more than a hundred and fifty people are believed to have been killed in the uprising with looting spreading across the country as the army struggles to restore order. reports from the egyptian capital cairo. thousands of protesters remain in the city center into here every square now they have been joined by hundreds of judges at the same time and joined by opposition figure mohamed el baradei he is the former chief of the international atomic energy agency and he says he will be prepared to
4:16 pm
head an interim government i've asked to do so i spent most of sunday at chickaree square and i can tell you that the mood there is a very volatile and we were busy interviewing people and if they can is that changed from talking to one of anger when we ran to the car we jumped in the com people were banging on the windows and how many were in on the car as we tried to get away so that situation a very very volatile at the same time though there are fewer protesters out on the streets then they have in previous days and this is simply because they formed themselves into what can be called neighborhood watch groups during sunday thousands of prisoners escaped from these prisons around the country and many of them broke into police stations they managed to get on your mission and weapons they managed to arm themselves and they have really been patrolling and controlling the highways throughout this country and terrifying people so people are using whatever they can kitchen knives. sticks to protect their homes and no one is
4:17 pm
prepared to entertain the fact that they will be in egypt with mubarak the protesters simply saying that they will not move until he steps down but that doesn't seem to be likely so anytime soon the latest word we have is that his army has moved into sharma's share of foreign nationals have been urged to leave the country the american embassy saying that from monday morning it will be torturing flights out of here the turkish government has sent a turkish plane in the turkish citizens from here and the vice president omar suleiman has been the day sunday with defense officials to try and deal with the situation now the international community particularly in a few cases what is the united states have. to show the strain to implement some kind of a. these we've seen demonstrations throughout the world in those demonstrations from both here in cairo the anger directed at the united states who of course has propped up mubarak and this is supported by wiki leaks documents of cable going
4:18 pm
back to two thousand and seven but interestingly enough that cable also talks about the fact that while the united states has supported mubarak it also in private supported opposition leaders to the united states playing a game of double standards here the big question on everyone's mind is whether or not these protests will result in the same way that was altered into this year with the overthrow of the president but it is still too soon to say whether mubarak himself will go. reporting from cairo where you can read more normal stories along the web size of course. dot com here's what else is on line for you right at the moment media. several large corporations don't think that the u.s. view is the beginning it's whether they're being given all of the finest coverage find out where else that's happening to stay informed. and. renowned for its history so why does the local man want to strip the city of its storied state if

light a polish journalist was alleged that the plane could only have to a back up airport if lech kaczynski himself gave the order as catherine as out of our reports polish officials responses to the claim have been contradictory. forced to land according to one article in a russian newspaper that was the cause of this man's plane crash which killed the polish president his wife and most of poland's political elite but the decision according to the paper's anonymous source wasn't made by the pilots or air traffic controllers the banner reverting to a backup airport was allegedly put in effect but the president himself one polish journalist whose name is not disclosed for o.b.'s reasons said that the special every asian regiment that flies v.a.p. passengers received a secret instruction which said the plane could dive only with permission from its
4:22 pm
main passenger. the rules state that the pilots priorities however should never have changed whether such instructions existed or not. maybe could enforce a rule you but i don't want to know about it because according to every existing rule in regulation the crew prepares the flight and until the point lands of the pilot and not the president is in charge of every decision. poland is of course vehemently denying even the possibility of such instructions exist thanks for this information was for me unbelievable from the beginning but i ordered it to be checked i have already received one hundred percent information but such an instruction did not exist neither internal nor general. this statement however would have carried a lot more weight if it was in contradicted by the government spokesman. and this is obvious that there are internal regulations in the division there is the head instruction which regulates the flights of the most important people in the country

. and the confusion doesn't stop here. or your. pilot had to back up their ports minsk in n.v. to obscure in this really says a lot about the quality of the cruise preparation because v.t.s. wasn't even working that day. the official investigation found pilot error was to blame despite mounting evidence poland remains intent on pursuing its own investigation into the crash and trying to prove that the russian air traffic control was also responsible actions some say are only for political leverage and of the country's parliamentary elections polish aviation experts agreed with the investigation report and its findings and unless the politicians are willing to do the same instead of trying to shift the blame game voter support many more similar revelations could come to light placing the polls in an even more uncomfortable position ghastliness r.t. moscow. a quick look now at some other international headlines this hour of power
