4:03 pm
airlines passenger aircraft that is reported to have crashed six minutes after the takeoff on route to kenya my prayers go out to all the families and associates of those on board as you can see people at the app hold right now they're there to support the families and the friends and whether it's online all whether it's at the airport everyone is of course asking the same question how could this have happened and what is it that caused the crash in the first place melanie a little snow what authorities are saying at this point obviously investigations are ongoing but what do we know about what happened. there is still a lot there we just do not know we know that the plane took off this morning that it just took six minutes for it to come down we know that there have been search and rescue operations going on all of the morning and of course no one survived in the end people here just do not know what to think the authorities are trying to
4:04 pm
give them as many details as they can but they just don't have any all the information that we can bring lie on this from the lines themselves and of course you have had the minister just now speaking out that he is trying to send people that they are trying to do everything that they can in order to find out more and to support the. peon authorities but at the end of the day with the voters have to wait all right there's a correspondent. thank you very much. as melanie said kenya's transport secretary has held a fresh pat press conference on the crash to confirm that dozens of countries citizens were on board the plane here's what he said there were at least about a five letter not a just. and there you go to break you know use the highest and we've got to to posit just on board. we are you going from the fit of those passages all right that's where we're sitting senior officials through the appeal. to be able to
4:05 pm
coordinate the sourcing of information in a bit of fashion. due to the use of as been looking into the plane involved in this crash he joins us from our i mean so this plane we know it was manufactured by boeing first of what is boeing saying right now well boeing issued a statement today giving their condolences to the families they said boeing is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of the passengers and crew on ethiopian airlines flight three zero to a seven thirty seven max airplane the extent of their sympathies and they also offered help with any technical issues that will happen after. specifically investigation into what caused. this crash which there's no information on this and here we see that statement as you said there from boeing what about this specific plane we said it's a seven thirty seven max what do we know about it well this plane is almost brand new it came out in two thousand and seventeen it's supposed to be more fuel efficient but it has been involved in two deadly crashes since it was released
4:06 pm
earlier one being just at the end of october the india the lion air crash in just off the coast of indonesia that killed one hundred eighty nine passengers and initial investigation into the cause of the crash showed that it could have been linked to malfunction of an anti stall system that was not announced to the pilots so what could have happened was that the plane was the information from the computer system show that the plane was going into an ascent when it wasn't and forced the nose to come down there's no information about whether or not this happened this error happened in any other planes seven thirty seven max but people are obviously asking those questions yet very troubling indeed what did boeing say after that first crash to lie in an air crash well they issued a software update but there was a controversy because of pilot training is now pilot training is
4:07 pm
a very expensive and often when a new plane has a new software in it they won't train new pilots because as boeing said and this is been their fishy. line pilots should be able to deal with any kind of. should be able to override a plane system if something is going wrong this isn't standard training for a long time now but questions are now rising whether or not this error is something that is causing too much of a risk that pilots should not have to deal with their controversies still lingering remember this is only five months ago that the plane went down so investigations are still ongoing into the plane crash in indonesia you know we of course have to see what exactly happened in this incident but how many of these planes are out there how common is the boeing max right now it only accounts for about two percent of boeing's fleet but that's because it's a new plane if you look at how many undelivered new planes there are in boeing's stock it accounts for about eighty percent of those undelivered plane so basically
4:08 pm
what boeing is saying is that this is the plane that the banking on this is going to be the future of boeing again no information about whether or not this error is related to this more recent crash today but if this does become an issue it could really set back boeing all right do these on the n.s.f. look into this aspect of the story for us thank you so much. and we'll move on to some other news now two german journalists are on their way back to germany after the government of turkey refused to renew their press passes the journalists were not given any reason for the decision their media organizations intend to appeal that germany's foreign minister has also criticised the decision to see that from the berlin daily typhus spiegel and was a german public t.v. say they see no legal grounds for the denial of their press accreditation in turkey here's what they had to say just before leaving istanbul. before i think this means some uncertainty for other members of the press by it appears the goal here is to
4:09 pm
influence reporting there has already been a chilling effect asserted on the turkish media there's hardly any critical reporting at least in the state media of its now it appears the government would like to achieve the same with the international media but i cannot imagine they will succeed. needs to be said that our situation is a luxury in comparison to what our turkish colleagues are dealing with more than one hundred thirty turkish journalists are now sitting in prison for something they posted online or for an article they wrote while the two of us are able to get on a plane and leave things that concerns us that the turkish government appears to want to extend pressure beyond national borders on this. algerian president abdul aziz beautifully appears to be on his way back home from geneva where he's been receiving medical treatment the eighty two year old has been hospitalized for the past two weeks with an undisclosed condition. returning as
