3:02 pm
the smoke dissipates after the explosion showing daybreak strewn all over the road and now passengers leaping out of the bar some through the doors and as we can see now others jumping out of the windows as the other cars on the road come to a standstill while lindsey français lindsey france witness the aftermath of the tragedy in the southern russian city. at this point investigators according to four people involved in this case they point to thirty year old aida i see all of us from dagestan a career jihad it as the suicide bomber in the case and then three men also involved one dimitri sokol love who is her reported husband was on his way to moscow and then two men waiting for them there from dagestan both of them wanted for twin terrorist attacks in dagestan back in two thousand and twelve so police are on the hunt for those three men at this point report stated she got on the bus

3:04 pm
a shopping mall in dagestan by anti-terrorist police also last night and islamic prayer center was firebombed here in volgograd so investigators are looking at that as well so there are many pieces to this puzzle that finally need to come together before we get a clear picture of how this was carried out and why it was done. meanwhile at the scene of the explosion investigators found a bus ticket from dagestan's capital to moscow and they say there's a possibility that it belonged to the suicide bomber now this may serve as evidence that she together with three other militants was planning to carry out a terrorist attack in moscow but for some reason decided to carry out in volgograd we discussed the issue of terror threats with alexander donovan who's a doctor of law and a visiting lecturer at several u.s. universities and he told us terrorism is no longer a regional matter but an international concern. i can tell you that you know we're
3:05 pm
dealing with this kind of a terrorist international channel divide what's happening in america in boston or in oklahoma city and then in ninety five well we cannot separate it from what has just happened in volgograd all from what happened in there all the just several weeks ago we are in the same boat and this is where unfortunate and we need to deal with it this is something you know about happens on the kind of irregular basis this is not first time this is not the last time but once again on the way in the same boat and unlike just several years that you went ahead with school and you know this expression one person's terrorist is another person's freedom fighter i can see it now. no matter what if somebody is added to it to russia and the russian government will have a terrorist attacks in russia this is a terrorist attack not just against the russian people it's against this is a terrorist attack against everybody. on our web team is creating all the latest

for you on the terror attack involving brad for expensive background information eyewitness reports pictures and footage go to party dot com. many of the deaths in u.s. drone strikes in pakistan are unlawful and amount to war crimes claims amnesty international a new damning report released today looks at recent incidents and cites horrific examples of the killing of children and the elderly human rights organization wants justice for the victims of unlawful strikes and calls for greater transparency and a thorough investigation and there could be a lot to look at it all began in two thousand and four when president bush was in office two thousand and six was the deadliest year in his presidency when almost a hundred civilians were killed by just two strikes two years later drones became much more frequently used and then barack obama became president in two thousand and nine now that was the year which saw the. biggest number of killings one hundred sixty two in the next twelve months the strikes almost doubled there were
3:07 pm
more than one hundred of them and the program goes on the latest attack in pakistan happened just over a month ago well we can see the lion's share of drone strikes were carried out by the obama administration around a thousand civilians have been killed including two hundred children the total number of deaths is no more than three thousand more details now from you see coming up. the predator drone remotely controlled and heavily armed it's the weapon of choice in the cia's undeclared war in pakistan that's where the u.s. is believed to have launched more than three hundred strikes since two thousand and four the target suspected taliban and al qaeda militants the white house says better drones then boots on the ground and justifies the covert program as both affective and legal america does not take strikes to punish individuals we act
3:08 pm
against terrorists who pose a continuing and imminent threat to the american people not so according to amnesty international in a damning new report the human rights group warns u.s. drone strikes could amount to war crimes documents recent killings in pakistan's northwest tribal areas and the lack of transparency surrounding drones this is a secret program in fact in our case we've found at least in some cases they've clearly killed civilians and some of these cases might be war crimes that really concerns us one such case is that of sixty eight year old bibi killed by a u.s. drone last october she was picking vegetables with her grandchildren when that attacks took place a double strike the children miraculously survived. most it was so then i heard that. the first hit and the second hit my cousin. but her grandmother's body was pulverized these missile fragments are all that remain of amnesty
3:09 pm
documents other such cases but its main point the need for transparency and accountability the u.s. must explain why these people have been killed people who are clearly civilians must provide justice to these people compensation it must investigate those responsible for those killings the u.s. continues to give very little public information about the drone program but it will face more international pressure later this week that is because on friday the u.n. general assembly will be done. bating the use of remotely piloted aircraft now in a separate report a un investigation looked at thirty three drone strikes around the world not just in pakistan that violated international humanitarian law and also resulted in hundreds of civilian casualties that report also calling for more transparency and accountability from the united states reporting from moscow i am lucy catherine of we also spoke to the head of the drones report and she says people in pakistan fear

3:28 pm
a message that this kind of conduct will not be tolerated yes sending a message you see corrupt officials are usually cowards and they do what they do because they feel they can get away with it when you start to put the fear of god into them they start to behave much better so the question is will the mainstream media grab the story and really use the conviction of detroit's former mayor is an example probably not but it would really help the country if they would but that's just my opinion. welcome to the future. thirty four countries spend over billion euros a says to each one to keep the millions of bees with some talk among. themselves from saying peace fix affronts we travel in search of the sun. you know we've got the future covered.
