what. it's still very early. plane was. two hundred meters and had descended way earlier than it should have according to the statements made by the ground control. pilot to make a second approach because of. the pilot. but of course. the box. before the. investigators continue their work at the site of the
12:02 pm
debris there is spread across a three hundred meter radius the flight recorder has already been found communication recordings and forensic analysis is being carried out looking into several versions of the tragedy these include the human. error of the crew all the ground services severe weather conditions. and several other potential causes. electricity for. people still don't have electricity. in fact. should be replaced within five years however there are those who would argue that in most of the plane crashes that happened in the past for this particular model there. had been twenty eight
12:03 pm
crashes this one included most of the time the reason behind the crash compounded of course by several factors but usually it's human error that causes such crashes . which i don't think anything would go wrong with the plane itself in forty years of operation that you 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 landing approach this is exactly what happened to the polish presidential airplane the survivor families of the five that are already in moscow and three here those who are still here we expect the relatives to come and to see them here as well as the relatives of those that have been killed the forty four that were killed in the crash now in terms of a conversation they had to have insurance rather from. which is the airliner that had carried. of course they will receive about two million rubles that's about
12:04 pm
seventy one thousand dollars that's insurance for those who were killed now authorities both in moscow as well as local authorities said that they will also provide financial aid to those who had survived and here right now actually they had declared three days of mourning and we do see some people still coming here with some flowers bringing them to the site. a correspondent there bring us up to date. but he says there are too many factors to pinpoint an exact cause of the crash. you know there's all sorts of fact to come into the story one of those is whether they were getting the right sort of information from the ground controllers in question. getting the right sort of weather information as well but some of the key points. and also whether they were actually employed radio with the control it would take to go track on the aircraft heights so on because of
12:05 pm
course around airports we know that the various obstacles through to have an impact on the safety of a landing or takeoff provided the how to all of that information given to them. should have been a routine landing coming up on the program in just a few minutes with me kevin i mean when fighting terror braids mold terror a u.s. drone attacks in pakistan and yemen keep claiming civilian lives causing an uproar among locals and sending them to the arms of the taliban all that ahead of them life threatening cost of health care with only a few lucky patients destined to win the lottery of life the report of a struggle for a multimillion dollar think may have a deadly disease. just a day after admitting killing nine civilians in a bungled airstrike nato has been accused by the libyan authorities now of causing at least another fifteen deaths the lives confirmed it had carried out in the bombing but has not responded to the allegations of a civilian casualties. has the latest from tripoli.
12:06 pm
and the other day has brought more death and destruction to leave. a large private compound west of the capital tripoli has been leveled reduced to rubble in the patterns as strike. rescues have discovered the remains of fifteen people according to libyan officials. most of their money was going to. the house destroyed belong to general who. are one of the people closest to colonel gadhafi he was among those who took part in the military coup to bring the libyan leader to power for. the general escaped injury but most of his family died in the attack. this man is talking about. one of the grandchildren of the general and one of three kids killed in the incident today of the bombing the family had gathered with friends to celebrate his
12:07 pm
fourth birthday. libyan civilians found that is when attacked in the air late hours of this morning killing fifteen people including three were children are. there is the word on the mother's. own cause it's. the number is fifteen people nato has denied these claims just as it's never debated the death of more than eight hundred others believe in a government says were killed by they have bombs the nine people killed in sunday's bombing of a residential building in tripoli remain the only civilian casualties i can buy the alliance which blamed a mistake to a weapons technical failure a former pentagon official says the only thing clear about the nato campaign is the mounting casualties and damage it's inflicting on the even people they try to
12:08 pm
achieve a certain level of humanitarian effort and initially but the protracted bombing is now increasingly hitting civilian targets and it's creating a very negative reaction i think it does raise the question of what is nato's role continued role going to be there as discontented actions and crazes other voices become more and more about to the voices of the libyan people was and it seems that the more anger they feel about nato the more they support. was saying that that's what this is because seventy wasn't because it was said that the soldiers have the. right challenging but this is a much it's a. good thing to. have been helping instead of the united states this was one that
12:09 pm
was kept out i didn't. keep was i the was. we will look to deliver all of this is to or not to this. attacking what certain is the more indeed dying. r.t. three. well we've got more footage of the devastation following today's bombing but i can tell you is too graphic to be shown here on the air if you would however though like to get the full picture you can see it on my you tube channel and you tube dot com slash r.t. if your discretion is advised because those images disturbing. news today violence is once again flared up. these are the images the world is seeing from the streets of canada. corporations rule the day.
12:10 pm
this is our see from moscow the greek government which is trying to push through harsh austerity measures is facing a no confidence vote in parliament later tonight it's survival is a critical first step though in securing a new loan from the e.u. designed to prevent a defaulting on its debts and triggering a euro zone crisis you finance ministers have given greece two weeks now to force through tax cuts in return for a twelve billion euro lifeline the conditions are deeply unpopular with the great public let's discuss the unfolding drama in the parliament the greek debt crisis m.e.p. david campbell balam and he's joining us from brussels mr campbell bannerman very good evening how do you see the greater harm in voting tonight. i'm not sure what the result will be but always has enormous pressures and a lot of trouble in greece about these carts and the actual taxes it's difficult to
12:11 pm
call but if the no confidence vote is goes through then obviously presumably an election and the implications on the euro i think a very serious indeed what will what if it does default that is a big thing i want is going to happen. well i think there's good the trouble will continue i mean basically you know the economy is in serious trouble in greece and the real fear here opinion here is contagion as they call it that if private investors actually are hit badly by greece then they will not invested other countries in trouble such as portugal such as our and particularly spray which is much bigger than a lot of the smaller countries put together eyes honestly as well maybe as well they've been downgraded them there. isn't worth this constant stream of bail out package the packages though or is it just time to cut the strings and go no you
12:12 pm
have to go you're away has to sort itself out without more bailouts. well i think this is what's going to happen because the question now is are we throwing good money after bad money you know how many billions can you throw at this you know the tolerance of the people for carts for extra taxes as we see it in greece there's real trouble there were there's trouble in spain and ireland particularly i think it's in major trouble the euro and i have been saying throughout see for some time i do believe it will collapse either in part or totally and probably quite shortly now as an m.e.p. has it made you feel safe in this collapse around you potentially. well i don't rejoice in it because obviously the economic damage is great a lot of banks will suffer and even if it's a british banks are directly so directly involved in greek debt there is a sort of contagion effect throughout the whole banking industry so it's not something to celebrate but to be honest i think the euro is
12:13 pm
a political prison for for countries such as greece and spain and they need to be liberated from that prison recreate their own currencies have devaluation make their exports cheaper make it easier for tourists to visit their countries and they'll get back on their feet i think the euro is very undesirable for a lot of these countries but if a bailout is the way forward if that vote of confidence gets through tonight how does how are they going to get that passed britain for instance its public service is being slashed its armed forces downsized cuts everywhere people there are happy how the british taxpayer is going to feel about it as just one country involved. europe's a right to two points at the time and david cameron has been saying recently quite rightly no more bailout money through the new obviously we have an international duty through the i.m.f. the international monetary fund which will help or is involved in this extra
12:14 pm
bailout for greece that is different. through the david cameron's rule that out and i commend that as you rightly say the british taxpayer has been helping out even though we're not in the euro zone and never have it in the euro zone we are being forced to help it out and i have to says what's interesting what's different is we're now hearing from ministers in the x. foreign secretary actually predicting also refusing to rule out the fact that the euro may well. so let's just recap this then there's a final question cino at the end of the day which of the two options would be the least painful for the greek people in your view tonight i think they should go back to the drachma i think they need to get out the euro it is a prison for them and to recreate the drachma i know there are no plans at present to do that but of course they can't sort of plan to be until the euro actually fails i think that is the salvation for greece and that's the way it really should go but obviously that's
12:15 pm
a matter for the greek people that will be decided tonight to overcome a ban i'm a member of the european parliament thanks for being on the line from brussels on our taste pretty shaded thank you. financial guru most keyser says the greeks are being fooled into paying off a debt they're not responsible for that in catch up with more of his thoughts on the scandals beyond the economic struggles in greece and seven thirty pm g.m.t. callaway their long as well sources trading on a website r t don't go home. medical treatment as a lottery where less than half the patients live to see the cure that is the nightmare scenario facing parents of children with deadly hunter's syndrome here in russia where extortionate costs and a lack of state support of snuffing out young lives are things examined poincare reports. the first match followed in february he's here fourteen according to his birth certificate to have that mom hearing he was rapidly declining his vision

hospital bubble it was almost eight hundred thousand dollars beyond comprehension for you lana whose husband left the family with the first signs of the disease she petitioned all sorts of organizations it was about to see the local authorities when in april they finally agreed to provide the money for the drug bag then this piece of paper seemed to produce license to life. when i got this letter i was so hopeful it meant that my child would live. there waited weeks then months in early june voters health took a turn for the worst and he died never having seen the promised drug. most people agree that losing a child is the worst thing that can happen to a parent but it's not the worst thing for her is to leave the rest of her life knowing that her child could have been saved but the treatment was there and these

12:20 pm
a general amnesty for prisoners however the leader gave no sign of stepping down it was just a public appearance of syria's president since the uprising began in march. the president promised to announce the scale of the u.s. withdrawal from afghanistan on wednesday the speed and size of the pull outs cause divisions with some of the military warning that undue haste would be dangerous there are currently around one hundred thousand american american troops in the country to be drawn is to start next month in complaint in twenty fourteen when afghan forces take over security. while planning a pullout from afghanistan the u.s. is continuing to step up its presence in other muslim countries the latest drone attacks in pakistan have reportedly killed twelve people only nine of them taliban fighters the growing number of civilian deaths means more angry locals are joining the militants with the u.s. now turning its attention to yemen the uproar looks set to become even louder as we report. the u.s.
12:21 pm
is looking to expand its war on terror but its methods are under fire in pakistan in the one year that cia drone strikes killed seven hundred civilians but netted only five actual militant leaders of. pakistan in the number of casualties that result because of the drone strikes. like the taliban and al qaeda and other groups in pakistan to recruit new numbers and they're doing that. many pakistanis are furious at their government for helping the americans kill their own people they accuse their leaders of doing that in exchange for billions of dollars from washington americans on the other hand are not too happy with what they get in return for their billions how on to support government so large ones when do we say enough is enough most governments lie to each other and so a business gets done washington now sees yemen as the most dangerous outpost and

he's planning to step up drone attacks on the country establishing a base in the persian gulf specifically for that purpose especially now when been launched replacement iman also ari is not to be building are already significant presence in yemen. the u.s. had been cooperated with yemeni counterterrorism forces in targeting al qaida but they've since left the field preoccupied instead with their nationwide turmoil against the sollie regime that means the americans are likely to have a freer hand going it alone with the cia to take a central role because the agency is not subject to the accountability the u.s. military is legally under expect more bombs to fall on yemen when the u.s. starts to hit people who are numbers by the new arabian peninsula then i think the real worry is that it expands this war to the point where so many people join up with al qaeda their security. yemen over the killing of scores of civilians by the

12:25 pm
russia it flows just as quickly the only thing obviously to the mind differentiate here is that obviously being rich of natural resources or will bring predominantly amongst those russia has a slightly different different nature of the impact they can play out on its economy so while the central bank mind tightens its policy of rising rights battle inflation and oil stays relatively high and some of its profits russia probably shouldn't feel any more effects all over and above what it's already seen. looking at the markets now starting with oil light sweet is up at just under ninety four dollars a barrel and brant is around one hundred twelve dollars a barrel. u.s. markets are trading optimistically choosing and its concerns over the greek debt default begin to ease the nasdaq is one point eight percent in the black with the dow moving three quarters of the same top. and here in moscow to trade close on
