of the road not a man reached. me but i couldn't make it to everything so sexualizing i could not get any closer everything was fine story. 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'd 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 ground services a severe weather conditions technical failure and several other potential causes but some would argue that in most plane crashes human error plays the biggest part . of which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane it's in forty years

of operation that you pull of one three four has proved to be extremely reliable aircraft in previous catastrophes human error was always to blame the same is true here the pilot should have made a second to approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane while the best a gator is working on the case relatives of the victims and survivors are dealing with their own grief shared by the people of because of bullets the days of mourning the deaths are still the r.t. in the russian region. reports suggest seven special forces officers have been killed and at least sixteen others wounded during an end to terror operation in brussels volatile north caucasus region a hideout in the republic in the russian republic of dagestan where some thirty militants are believed to be stations have been under heavy artillery shelling with tanks and helicopters in action fierce fighting broke out when insurgents attempted to break through the surrounding units are reports of several neighborhoods and

we are a mix of people that have no political columns and yet all together to say that we cannot be on the vice president we are not called. the measures taken on the measures that they take for us without us and we want to take our lives back demonstrations held on the central square now and it daily basis with some of the protests turning violent the trade has to stay the suffocating take as nothing can take the stage the measures that they fail strangling their economy the people are being refused very right to judge what policies are going to be implemented upon them and of course the greek government is an accomplice to this most of popular sovereignty i mean we're not one of anymore in the proper sense a sovereign country when the i.m.f.
9:06 am
can dictate policy when the european when the and the european union and the i.m.f. the so-called troika 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 a lot we can see in a way we're facing a very peculiar form. by the european union the european central bank. they finance chiefs of desperate not to see the first year they saying something default and they're rising concerns about the crisis that trigger. i think there is a chance of a domino effect if greece or. announcer default and this is their problem and this is the reason why are europeans are are helping greece but in fact we are hearing pingers because they don't want. because we want to pay for a very short a very emotional time for the sixteen percent of the week what full sun employees western economic conditions here in greece do you easing dream it seems it's
9:07 am
a. one person who could be worse the authors were before over there were uprising or there would be a lot of violence in the streets the people said that when that's turning out into the streets and then millions and the government continues to push ahead with the phase measurements when they deign to have democracy anymore the government is trying to grow but the people refuse to be governed in this way every day that disconnect becomes more and more dangerous. this very peaceful pay above the roof 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 all staying is just when we'll reach boiling point lenny when he was on the streets of athens to witness the violence that is already past that point the question a lot of people are now all skiing is really how much further does this guy so.

passengers as part of its anti terror measures but member of the european parliament terry batten says only a joint international agreement will be able to protect the world from terror. it certainly seems to me to be disproportionate this disproportionate and intrusive in the amount of men information that they're actually won on travelers and it could well be illegal especially under existing data protection legislation and i queried that before when speaking on this subject in the parliament they want the moment amount of information about people their personal details credit cars traveling companions even but bizarrely they say that they won't categorize 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 their political religious or philosophical beliefs so that seems rather odd to me in terms of this information
9:10 am
the americans get to keep it for fifteen years my understanding of this directive is that the member states will only get it 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 being subjugated to an american big brother star as well by the same method 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 proportional laws in order to do that but i think these things should be reached by international agreement so that everybody cooperates truly cooperates 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 together. in favor of the doing this on its own you know as part of its own legislative machine and the u.s. i get in a special deal which the rest of us don't get. well italy has called for an immediate halt to violence in libya in order to allow humanitarian aid into the country the appeal came on the heels of condemnation of nato's and fall of men in
9:11 am
a number of civilian deaths historian lawrence davidson says the way the nato campaign was conceived makes the killing of ordinary people inevitable. what this calls into question the original justification for american intervention which was humanitarian my own personal opinion is that that was always a just a media story for domestic consumption you cannot intervene anywhere with this level of munitions and not kill civilians so ok you're going to protect civilians by intervening with the type of munitions that cannot avoid killing civilians i think that nato and its commanders and the president and the politicians involved in this are beyond the point of no return so they simply cannot stop in terms of their own mind what they've invested in this and therefore
9:12 am
they will end up doing whatever is necessary to secure victory in libya and they will project media stories to cover to look at some world news in brief for you this hour at least fifty salim al qaida militants have managed to escape from a challenge yemen now turned serjeant's attacked the prison from outside they targeted security guards and seize their weapons killing at least one officer in jail is believed to house more than one hundred key al qaeda members among those who broke out were prisoners convicted on terror charges months of unrest in yemen have led to fears of al qaeda is growing influence. syria has poured scorn on you moves to impose sanctions saying it will simply forget europe is on the map a violent crackdown against anti-government activists in the country has left hundreds dead since the uprising began in march because activists are calling for

this is war. the war for which the nazi military the very marked had come up with a name for long before blitzkrieg but a siege they'd planned would last just hours instead was to go on for weeks in a fierce battle with those who defended to the death from the biggest cautious became the size of the first major fighting between soviet forces and the viet mocked there was no warning when the nazis invaded on the night of the twenty second of june one thousand nine hundred forty one the bombardment of the garrison by surprise that army officers was spread out and passed on from there i mean initially but even the students stopped them to finding the forts in fierce battles until the last survivor stories of their heroic resistance quickly reached different fronts soldier me loss of received the news far away in the republic of
