5:02 pm
army investigators are now on site to determine whether any dangerous materials are left in the wreckage. say bas ravi has more eye witnesses describe a plane on fire lighting up the night sky. the crash of an ant enough cargo plane, tearing through an open field. there was put their name to say a band was to speak to them as i wonder how it didn't fall in our houses because it came from over there. it was full of smoke. it had a noise i can describe and went over the mountain. it passed a mountain and turned and crashed into the fields. there were flames. we were scared. a lot of cars came, but they could not approach because there were continuous explosions. what are the scale of devastation at 1st confusing people who saw the plane come down? level men now look at the vein of what we see. something bright coming down from the direction of the castle, but we thought it was the light night after death. we said fire fire, what is it? is it a plain? what is it? one of them, by the time we understood what it was,
5:03 pm
it had fallen to the ground. we were terrified or we also had children here coming . we're screaming, shouting, local residents and 1st responders describe ongoing explosions following the crash door bure ship or lee lee your uterus, from his crash to the ground and develop into a large fire with many continuous exposure audio gear. greek media reports hazardous materials were on board including explosives. the method is, is of this didn't even weeks and the c l's measurements at the moment have not shown anything. but none the less and stability of the field was observed in other words and turned smoke and heat, as well as a white substance that we do not recognize. so a special armed forces team has to inform us of what it is and whether we can enter the field, a low to mid to flight was operated by meridian or ukraine based cargo carrier. it originated in serbia, the country's defense ministry confirming the cargo of unit bullet is nisha. utah
5:04 pm
with a plane was carrying 11 and a half tons of products of our arms trade for the end buyer in bangladesh. the buyer was the bangladesh ministry of defense as a fully permitted and use and by the flight route was mr. with technical landings in our man read. i've met bad and was planned to land in deca as the final destination lead moments before the plane went down. the pilot radioed about a problem with one of the engines requesting an emergency landing, but unable to make it to the nearest airport. the journey ending in a field in northern greece was in basra, the ultra 0 dave de roches, an associate professor and senior military fellow at the national defense university. he says, examining the scene is difficult because of explosives in the wreckage. 11 and a half tons, sounds like a lot it's. it's not a whole lot for our shipments. the reason why it was flown rather than sent by sea is because it's not big enough for a ship. you know, obviously you're shipping weapons. you have to have
5:05 pm
a dedicated ship just for that. it's a problem when you have explosives, because when the plane crashes, you have to worry about the explosives cooking off afterwards. so the damage always looks worse because people don't go and put out the fire. they have to sit back, let the fire burn itself out and you know it's, it's always unpleasant. it's always nasty when a plane crashes, but this is particularly unpleasant because of that. they also, there are also reports that some of the rounds were mortar elimination rounds, which are not normal. you know, last explosives, they are, they tend to be metalized. finally fragmented metal, which are extremely klamath falls. so again, that would create some problems for firefighters and rescuers. ukraine is among the world air leaders in air cargo services they produce or they did until the russians destroyed the factory. you know, wide body aircraft, nato countries, charter aircraft from the ukrainian firms. quite frequently they,
5:06 pm
they are among the world leaders. so this isn't some shady fly by night. it's an established, well accepted practice. although you know, they're not subject to some of the scrutiny that a western country would be. they're not part of any european institutions, but they are a known quantity. the initial report said, mortars and mines, and i think they met mortar rounds. i know that there's trace elements of, you know, illuminating radioactive material, sometimes in water sites that you can view at night soon as you get in wristwatch. if there's any kind of toxic substances, the greek government probably consolidates all of that under there on. ringback or energy authority, and i think it makes sense to at least scan it because low level radiation is you're not in munitions, but in some military equipment. time via chandry has mall and the government's response in bangladesh is capital dhaka. the plains final destination wise spoke to the inter service public relations office was essential. the media wing of the defense ministry and the armed forces combined together. now they hand out at
5:07 pm
a statement in bangalore to local media as well as to me saying this plane was carrying essentially ammunition for martyrs, for bangladesh, army and the border guards for training purposes. not that contradicts little bait . with serbian defense minister, while he was saying that includes weapons and mines, now the definition of weapons and ammunition can be little bit confusing. the one thing for sure that bangladesh had made at that plane was ukrainian register. cargo plane was destined for bangladesh. we still have to find out what that greek altered is after they investigate even exactly find out what was in that plane. bangladesh, traditionally sensibly independent, have been buying weapons from previous or former soviet bloc countries. traditionally, russia, yoga, flavia check republic. and now sardinia is one of the suppliers and bunger those buys artillery pieces from them from belew, russia. most of the weapons parties are russian grades,
5:08 pm
although majority are supplied by china. and many of them are used in deb un peacekeeping operation, bangladesh, as one of us largest troops contin generating the un. so many of this weapon are used overseas in different states. shipping mission, traditionally, they had been used on eastern block weapons as opposed to western block weapon. so the serbian weapon supplies not surprising, although in this case we're little confused on it was just emanation or just weapons. 14000 people have been evacuated in france. a southern europe is gripped by a devastating summer heat wave, which is spunk wildfires, and let a hundreds of heat related deaths. france, portugal, and spain have been worsted in southern france. 2 large fires tearing through pine forests near the city of bordeaux evacuations have been going on in the area since the blazes started several days ago. oh sama, regarding the laundry rough fire. we are dealing with a concerning situation. a critical situation in our terminology. the fire is not
5:09 pm
moving freely because that would mean it is moving as of once, but we are currently able to respond to it, attempting to redirect it, and to try to limit its progression. and in spain, fire fighters are trying to put out more than 30 blazes. consuming forests across the country, rugged terrain is hampering operations. but he was also spreading to northern europe. in the u. k, the government is held, an emergency meeting is forecast is protect record temperatures on monday and tuesday that be the theme baba reports from london implants of southern europe like here in spain, forest fires and nothing new but could conditions experienced in the south soon be the norm elsewhere here in britain, the government's been holding emergency meetings and for the 1st time a red warning has been issued for the heat rather than floods. the winds. people are being warned as a 50 percent chance of temperatures reaching 40 celsius more than one degree above the old time record. a studies found heat waves across europe have increased $3.00
5:10 pm
to $4.00 times faster than in the rest of the northern mid latitudes, including north america. and much of that is driven by changes to atmospheric circulation, known as the jet stream. whether or not that's directly due to human activity, scientists say our continued use of fossil fuels means we're already seeing what was previously predicted for 2050. we are still increasing greenhouse gas in the atmosphere, which means global temperatures are increasing. and this means that this is probably something that will be, arises because life in a 3 decades to come. so one thing might also be to change that conversation, but actually, it's not. it's the question about life and death and not just for the global south, but also for citizens in the u. k. and despite news reports concentrating on, seems like this, you can help or 30 is a warning. the heat can be deadly, even for healthy people. climate change has been driving extreme temperatures for decades, and the heat is killing more and more people. here in england,
5:11 pm
in the summer of 2020 more than 2 and a half 1000 excess decks were attributed to heat waves and they've only become more intense and more frequent. since then, the british red cross predicts that the annual heat wave death toll could have tripled by the middle of this century. much of europe, the increase in heat waves poses urgent questions about how society adapts from education to working patterns, to transport and housing. some believe it's high time we faced up to a hot future. the d barbara al jazeera london protests as a backer on the streets and sir dan demanding a return to civilian rule and the capital cartoon security forces use tig asked to disperse demonstrators. sedans, military seized power from a transitional, civilian lead government last october. since then, anti military protests have been held in several cities daily. every week. dozens of people have died in the unrest. heber morgan has more from car to the last major protest was in june 30th that left at least 9 people killed. and more than 600

5:14 pm
a final push in that area to try and take over dumbass. meanwhile, in the south, the russians are fortifying their positions improving their security because the ukrainians have said that they will assemble a 1000000 man army to take back territory in the side. that is perhaps more aspirational than practical, but it certainly shows the ukrainian intent. and certainly over the last few hours, we've heard reports of ukrainian attack on carson, which the claim killed. 36 russians and destroyed a number of russian ammunition dumps. the russian defense minister says that the russians will start increasing military pressure, that they will go in the areas that they need to go ask for president zalinski here in ukraine. he believes that as an indication from the russians that they will continue to target civilian areas, saying that that's exactly what they've done over the last few weeks. and of course, you remember there was a significant rocket attack on friday at the ukrainians were saying that it was
5:15 pm
a residential block in a factory that was hit that killed so many people at but the rush and say with the we're actually targeting a meeting of the ukrainian navy high command, what's important to remember is that it's now been 20 weeks since since the war began. and in that time people continue to be killed. so had allowed sierra road tripping through afghanistan, the tourists hub. that's booming, as travel becomes easier, a bow, a munich once to serve you a stout in exchange for some flower oil. ah, the hello. we've got more very heavy right on the carts for south career at the moment. we got this mess of cloud assess seasonal rain that pumping its way across southern parts of japan. and as it does so, we'll see some big down poor,
