a visual picture of what happened it actually raises even more questions of how that could have happened and it's largely hoped that these answers would be given by the information from the flight recorders which have been found but they have been damaged so severely in this crash in this explosion that there have been taken to moscow now it's going to take some time to go through that data. and of course is a day of mourning. how do people cope with the tragedy that. of course. all of the relatives of the victims are still in shock from what happened pretty much this tragedy has affected the whole city since this was a very popular flight and so a lot of people who i've been talking to here they have been saying that they do realize that they could have been on that flight and this tragedy could have happened to them and. there were fifty people on the plane all of them

a combination of factors behind the crunch that was a poor repair that led to fatigue and obviously structural failure but all of these factors are going to be looked at normally in or emergency you want to get the aircraft on the ground safely as quickly as possible so what would have caused. first attempt was whether a factor was crew fatigue who almost there are going to be so many things that have to be looked at keeping in mind that accidents generally don't have been from a single event it's a chain of events that lead to a catastrophe like this. stay with me for objects as developments happen and get across more detail in the air tragedy online at aussie dot com. guess who's been checking up on diplomats who checked into big hotels gas british

8:08 am
please tell us more. all right what we're seeing right now is a special session a special sitting of the ball in the stand the reason that's necessary is because while there still isn't a coalition government here in germany almost two months after the general election they still haven't ironed out all the wrinkles in just going to be in charge of the government of the country for the coming years so the have to hold this special session and the topic that is being discussed is the ongoing revelations about the n.s.a. spying saga no germany it seems had been particularly targeted by the n.s.a. and by other spying organization she told by a b g c h q right then we heard about the british and american embassies appear in berlin apparently having spying nests on their roofs of recent in recent times so that all of these things are being discussed at the moment in parliament to try and find out just huge knew what about what was going on now it's worth noting this
8:09 am
isn't the full poll of entry inquiry the opposition politicians here in germany have had called for particularly the left party on the greens they wanted a full inquiry this isn't it but they have what we have heard calls from senior parliamentarians here. from the government to put all of their cards on the table about just what was going on in terms of foreign spying here in germany so peace why do you think germany is such a popular guy target for its ally. well what we have seen is huge outrage here because of just how close the relationship was perceived to have been between the the german people and their allies like the united kingdom like the united states it caused real outrage to move seen being voiced by demonstrations on the streets all throughout the summer here as well as
8:10 am
states senior parliamentarians coming forward and saying look we need to find out just how involved germany was in any kind of spying activities taking place on its own people so all of this is trying what we're going to see over the coming few hours is being discussed in parliament here in berlin as they try to get to the bottom and questions are asked of just how involved germany was who knew what about what time was going on. on of the line from berlin peter thank you very much indeed for that and in its probe into the alleged toppling of angela merkel's phone burning is seeking assistance of edward snowden and john gets a german investigative journalist and that him in moscow last month as he was accompanying a german and. that's one of the things that's being discussed is the question of how to get input from of the person who actually knows the most about the documents right now all of the documents are being kind of read and reported on by
8:11 am
journalists who of course you know are doing their best are doing the best job they can but these are complicated things and it would make sense to get expertise i mean from the person that knows the system and the n.s.a. from the inside as a matter of fact i mean the interior minister and other leading people in the german government have acknowledged the importance of snowden's allegations i mean the fact that uncle americal actually called president obama about. the story about her cell phone was not just the basis of a newspaper story it was that basically the german authorities had found out that this was true. one of the arctic sunrise greenpeace gathering is going nowhere just yet he's cassidy's been extended by and not a free months his defense is already promising to appeal in a few minutes report from outside the court where they will recreate track

8:13 am
a real chance that the international standoff over iran's nuclear program could ultimately be solved now this comes just two days ahead of slater talks that will take place in geneva between the six global powers and iran and if any kind of indication is accurate that there will be some kind of deal reached this will happen then potentially this week and at the same time what we're hearing from the british newspaper the sunday times is that if a deal is reached this puts the option of a military strike by israel and saudi arabia back on the table now it's no surprise that these two countries reportedly have been working behind the scenes to try and think about how to strike iran in the eventuality of any kind of deal both of them are worried that the deal would see international sanctions against iran lifted while the country continues with its nuclear enrichment program according to the sunday times riyadh is offering tel aviv tactical support in the form of allowing

8:16 am
a former iranian diplomat who's represented to iran in talks with the u.n. nuclear watchdog and he pointed to a major contradictions in france's position over iran. france has a block peaceful because of israeli claims i think this is a historical mistake france is making the i. five thousand man inspection of a nuclear program and frequently has announced the reason no evidence of diversion toward that end is asian this is clear but i really doubt the real concern of france is a nuclear bomb because france has a strategic relations with israel is not a member of n.p.t. and possess about four hundred nuclear bombs therefore france should not be concerned about nuclear bomb france help israel to master nuclear bomb france held
