for moscow the pictures of what's the north west to russia crashed on this road missing the runway by kilometer. it's awful my late husband was a pilot he had landed planes at this airport many times it's very personal to me this part of the crash has been cleaned up the roads have been reopened the wreckage of the quake completely removed but there are still clear marks evidence like this part of course that reminds people of the tragedy that struck on monday right and for those who have been here to witness the horrific scene as they say that those memories are unlikely to go away. i didn't sleep for two days i couldn't even fall asleep i can't recall him people screaming and asked pulling bodies away from the plate what should he have danny was one of the first on the scene his house only meters away from where the plane came down and we have. i heard the explosion and ran outside the lights went out i ran to the site and we started
rushing people here we're trying to win man two women and the pilot he was dead while all the bodies have been recovered the relatives of the victims still have the tough task of identifying their loved ones investigators say all the equipment were functioning properly at the time of the crash and they've also refuted initial reports that the navigator had high levels of alcohol in his life for now they suggest bad weather and pilot error appear to be the likely causes of the crash a suggestion that didn't sit well with some locals just would cause i knew it's easy to blame the pilot because he's dead. i think the airport itself is to blame for family and friends are waiting for answers but all they can do now is remember those people lost. tesser sui r t russia is clearly a region. civilian casualties in the libyan conflict continue to rise with the government blaming nato for killing more than a dozen people in
a recent airstrike in the eastern town of breda the alliance denies the accusations saying it struck only legitimate military targets meanwhile opposition leaders in benghazi say they're ready for negotiation a lot of conflict and many in the country believe the rebel force is more interested in waging war than creating a very emotional reports. this family hasn't had a war choirs and peaceful like this one for months previous keeps on the libyan rebel stronghold of benghazi to hide in this refugee camp in the west of the country after a life in their native town became a nightmare. i know it's not safe there anymore it's become dangerous and it's not only because of explosions and gunshots one day people from the government and then you call them rebels we call them terrorists came to me and told me we have to arrest your daughter because we know that she supports gadhafi. these cave has been long and hard for the family but i remember that i couldn't i had to hide for some
time from them as they've been searching for me then we knew there was a bus coming from gaza to turn is here the bus with the rebels for their purposes we took that bus with our faces covered and everybody was against gadhafi on it we told them that we were also against him and they let us in their son was a brother of some three and a surgeon has also fled the city he says they've made three attempts on his life but he only finally left when he saw a killing. take him from from from your killing him in front of your own good but. the doctor says people from the national transitional council were behind it this is the rebels official political guard he says are part of the revolution starts and that means february. its members are recognized by many countries throughout the world as the only legitimate representatives of libya there is no other being you then you. you have to be with
you are against. the earth freedom and democracy there is no freedom or democracy these just want to blow up the refugees here say the now finally feel safe but it's not that safe from the side of the frontline either. these people have gathered in the west of tripoli to bury those killed in one thousand airstrike government officials a bomb landed on a private compound and flattened killing fifteen people including three key this conflict has to come to an end immediately which is very unlikely to happen anytime soon while need to has already claimed three operations to protect civilians are still on with clashes continuing and benghazi and nato intensifying its bombardment of tripoli both eastern and western parts of the country are perilous to stay in and people are dying on both sides of the frontline many on the ground fear that's
when the democracy the west talks about will finally come here there not be enough people left to experience it. r.t. but porton from western libya investigative journalist michelle collins says nato won't be deflected by concern for civilians as its ultimate aim is to control abuse resources and our national reserves. they are killed more civilians that the losses from the initials problems their fears most invasions the nato bombings so the real idea is not protect civilians the real andy is to achieve the economical strategy calling first off there of the west us in europe i mean or i mean the financial reserves of libya i bring mind that the us is a bankrupt country and also all preventing that caffie would be a sort of turn of used to do i.m.f. some buying for african development revisit the people in hospitals and we saw
victims and indeed the civilian population is attacked that must be very clear it has nothing to do with him in a chair and war. still ahead this hour five years behind bars for false confession . i was forced to agree with the member of parliament. and i was. one former guantanamo bay detainees tells r t how he suffered at the hands of authorities and how he continues to struggle for justice. plus we travel to the fukushima exclusion zone to find out the true radiation levels but we can react. first though syrian forces have opened fire at funerals for the victims of a little crackdown on anti regime protesters near the capital damascus at least two people were killed more than twenty people are thought to have been killed across syria since friday the latest wave of protests against president bashar al assad's
rule came despite a speech monday in which he promised liberal reforms in return for an end to the violence a three month long crackdown has reportedly left some fourteen hundred people dead former british ambassador to syria basler eastwood says people there are divided over president assad amid strong desire for a political process. there were great hopes that he would lead to a better future he still retains some of that popularity particularly with the urban populations in damascus and aleppo the second big city which have done relatively well as of his economic liberalization. but in the countryside and amongst the intelligentsia i think there are now no hopes that he can bring about reforms but there is a long tradition in that part of the world of a vengeance but so far the opposition activists at
least. to their insistence that there should be. no violence on the part of the activists and they're also saying they do not want any outside intervention. and they are starting to talk about the lead fall. a political process. members of syria's extra arnel opposition have arrived in moscow to hold talks with russian officials r.t. got the chance to speak with one of the delegates about their mission to the russian capital. mostly for its efforts to stop the bloodshed and violence that's sweeping syria we would like straights and we will continue to maintain friendly strategic relations with russia the mother who is going to be in power in syria we as well as all the other political forces in syria are friendly relations with moscow and call in the russian authorities to denounce violence in syria at the un security council all of position forces both inside and outside the country
arrogance foreign intervention in syria we are united in only one thing only the syrian people have the right to result in countries domestic programs we are also convinced that russia and the world community must flee a vital role in achieving peace and stability now greece is expected to get another cash injection from the european union are a condition it impose your financial measures measures totaling seventy eight billion euros the greek parliament is expected to vote tuesday the proposals caused an eruption of anger in the capital with protesters claiming the move was aimed at rescuing the ailing euro skeptics in brussels even to stage a symbolic funeral for the currency according to research here as part of the artist selection lecture at the university of the aegean the only way out of the mess is by splitting from the e.u. . the problem is we cannot do it we are getting plenty of billion lifeline. but the biggest part of which is going to be used to repay debt to repay previous
did this is totally absurd it is for the benefit of bric people to have an immediate exit from the europe from the euro zone the euro is a monetary absurdity in a way it's a totally irrational financial and monetary architecture that is also a contributing factor to that crisis and in general to social crisis in greece so i think that going back to a national kerensky and regaining public control in a way national control of monetary policy is a very necessary step to be taking it is not a road to disaster as the government is saying on the contrary it's going to be a very positive step. john goddard from the e.u. referendum campaign in britain doesn't mince words when it comes to the euro he says the currency is on its last legs and it's time to stop wasting billions trying
to keep a failed concept afloat. if we just keep pumping money into greece it's only putting off the death of their economy they are already bankrupt we have to wake up and smell the coffee and say enough is enough greece is going to go audience going to go portugal and of course the big one that everyone is worried about is the state of spying that is want. like caught fish juicy no liability isn't spying because clearly the property slump in spy is much bigger than the spanish government is telling people face is going to be in a truck of eighteen percent i do radio shows in spain people are losing seventy percent sixty percent and if i you of thousands in the developments spain will be the next one but why should we the u.k. taxpayer pay homage to the german fact by a play for the in it she chewed of the greek government. other stories for you online a lot onto our website r.t. dot com here's what's a click away right now. find out why the promised land of israel doesn't seem so

because of my job at the university i can't my family and my friends family. officially fukushima city is in a safe area eighty kilometers from the daiichi plant reactor one and a full sixty kilometers outside the band danger zone but still radiation levels here are much higher than normal. just to give you an idea of the consistency right now the ground is really pretty high tonight micro records. the only time of what is more of them except admirable but the problem here is that we're just so well and the lot of the regular quickly. earlier we got a really good night in iowa. about a thousand times more than was really accepted. but in order to claim that fukushima is truly safe from leaking radiation the japanese government has had to be creative with the numbers from other government. they change the
radiation quantum level the levels from one. to twenty. five twenty times. the standards before the accident and now. they raise the. standard so that they can say it's safe. actually the standard has changed the new higher levels mean that fukushima can be classed as being outside of the exclusion zone some say that evacuating the city would be simply impractical given the huge numbers of people affected. to try and mitigate the circumstances to some degree a group of scientists have teamed up to find simple ways to reduce the radiation levels. we're just trying to do. road trip. but also lives and we are not using especially when we just use normal show both.
