a 3rd of the way into the flight. the aircraft made a sharp you turn before crushing in the greek city of command or specialist greek army investigators are now on site to determine whether any dangerous materials are left in the wreckage. same bas robbie reports. 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. your husband, their neighbor, say a band with us beat them us. i wonder how it didn't fall in our houses because it came from a there. it was fearless, make. it had a noise i can describe and went over the mountain. it passed mountain and turned in, crashed into the fields. there were flames. we were scared, a lot of cars came, but they could not approach because they were continuous explosions. look what are the scale of devastation at 1st confusing people who saw the plane come down. level may now look at the venue of what we see, something bright coming down from the direction of the castle, but we thought it was the lightness i did. after that we set fire fire. what is it?
7:06 pm
is it a plane? what is it going up by the time we understood what it was? it has fallen to the ground that we were terrified or we also had children keep coming. we're screening shouting 1000 local residents and 1st responders describe ongoing explosions following the crash door bure. cipollina lee, your or yourself crashed to the ground and developed into a large fire with many continuous exposure audio gear. greek media reports hazardous materials were on board including explosives. this is neither the measurements at the moment have not shown anything, but nonetheless, instability of the field was observed and other words and tense, 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 or the flight was operated by meridian or ukraine based cargo carrier. it
7:07 pm
originated in serbia, the country's defense ministry confirming the cargo of unit bullet is naesha. huge on the plane was carrying 11 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 youth and by the flight route was near with technical landings in man red med about and was planned to land in dhaka as the final destination. 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 is in basra. v o to 0. well, the plane was traveling from serbia to bangladesh on in zurich is in belgrade with more on the response from the serbian government. 3 of the friends minister neighbors was divine image confirmed that ukrainian cargo plane on top of the 12
7:08 pm
crash the grease was carrying the weapons from serbia. but also on the line that these kids know relation to the board in ukraine, according to the minister playing with carrying 11 and how tons of military equipment such as weapons and mines, were used by serbian rebels company volleyer for the ministry of defense of this as the end user there be a minister also stated that the plane had all the proper permits in accordance with international regulations, the aircraft to come from the nice airport, the cell sort of b i saturday around 840 p. m. has crashed to near the greek city of karbala. they found a which explained to technical lending sort of plans in amman and ultimate with final destination in dot com. the value of company management confirmed that the plane was carrying the mines for the training of bangladesh troops and the delivery was arranged back in 2021. this account of events was confirmed by the management
7:09 pm
of ukrainian aircraft company, melody and baton. where chandry has more, the government's response in bangladesh is capital was spoke to the inter service public relations office was essentially the media wing of the defense ministry. and the armed forces combined together. now they hand out at a statement in bungler to local media as well as to me saying this plane was carrying essentially ammunition form orders for bangladesh, army, and the border guards for training purposes. not that contradicts little bait with serve in defense minister where he was saying that includes weapons and mines. now the definition of weapons and ammunition can be little bit confusing. one thing for sure that bangladesh had made at that plane was ukrainian registered cargo plane was destined for bangladesh. we still have to find out what's that greek altered is up to date investigative. exactly, find out what was in that plane,
7:10 pm
bangladesh traditionally sensitively independent, happen buying. 3 weapons from previous or former soviet bloc countries. traditionally, russia, yoga, flavia check republican. now saria is one of the suppliers are buying those buys artillery pieces from them from belly, russia. most of the weapons parties are russian grades. all the majority are supplied by china. and many of them are used in the un peacekeeping operation, bangladesh, as one of the largest troops contin generating the un. so many of this weapon are used overseas, indifferent to shipping mission, traditionally they've been using this and block weapons as opposed to western block weapon. so the sarbanes weapon supplies not surprising, although in this case we a little confused on it was just emanation or just weapons. david is rush. he's an associate professor and a senior military fellow at the national defense university. he says, examining the scene is difficult because of explosives in the wreckage. 11 and
7:11 pm
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 if you're shipping weapons, you have to have 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 flamel. so again, that would create some problems for firefighters and rescuers. ukraine is among the
7:12 pm
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, 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 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 order sites that you could view at night, same as you get in a wristwatch. if there's any kind of toxic substances, the greek government probably consolidates all that under there on. ringback or energy authority, and i think it makes sense to at least scan it because low level radiation is used not in munitions, but in some military equipment. protests his back on the streets in sudan,
7:13 pm
demanding a return to civilian rule and a capital cartoon with security forces you tear gas to disperse demonstrators. sedans, military seized a power from a transitional. civilian led government last october. since then, until military protest had been held in several cities nearly every week, dozens of people had died in the unrest he been, morgan has more from cartoon. the last major protests was on june 30th that left at least 9 people killed. and more than 600 people injured when security forces use tear gas and lab ammunition. previously, the u. n. and human rights groups have described the force used by security forces as brutal and excessive because the, the, the protest have been large. the peaceful with protect us trying to make their way to the presidential palace. and it was the same case again on sunday protesters trying to make their way to the presidential palace to voice their anger against the military is sure that they want a civilian government. after the military took over power more than 7 months ago, despite the fact that again, security forces using tear guys against protesters,
7:14 pm
keeping them away from the vicinity of the presidential palace. they continue to try to boys their anger. they say that the military takeover ended a transition to democracy that they've been demanding for for nearly 4 years now. and if anything, they will continue to tell them military that they want to see a civilian government. and they want the military to return to the barracks and stay away from sedans, politics, staying in sudan, at least 65 people have died and at least a 157 had been wounded in the southern. that blue nahl region during the days of violence between rival tribes. the minister of health for the area told al jazeera that local authorities didn't have enough equipment or 1st aid supplies to cope. he's called the one the government to intervene. some in the country, blame of last year's military coup for a resurgence of ethnic violence in the area. or still a head hair on our bi election in pakistan's most populous province can have national implications. why a bar in munich wants to serve you

7:20 pm
you remember there was a significant rocket attack on friday at the ukrainians were saying that it was a residential block in a factory that was hit that killed so many people at that the rush and say what they were actually targeting a meeting of the ukrainian navy high command, what's important to remember is that it's now been 20 weeks and since the war began, and in that time people continue to be killed. so lanka is moving closer to finding a new president with 4 politicians named contenders in wednesday's election of economic crisis that spark the resignation of the former president continues with people struggling to buy food and fuel. and al fernandez reports from colombo. a daily battle is being fought by more. she lengthens the battle to make ends meet. prices are rising so fast, many a wondering how they will feed their families. i am working now word. they said it is not enough, was, was there all the exam been gone?
