A dark picture emerges: atrocities in Ethiopia
"Rumors and scattered reports of atrocities in ethiopia's northern region of tigray have been swirling for months amid a media blackout. But the picture is now starting to become clearer and evidence for war. Crimes and crimes against humanity are stacking up on sunday. America's secretary of state anthony blinken condemned the killings sexual assaults and forced removals said to have taken place in tigray and called for troops to be withdrawn. The conflict began late last year. When the region's ruling party the tigray people's liberation front or tps aleph was booted out of the federal government where it had dominated for decades has to be off. Matt has announced quote final military operation against the defiant gripe province in coming days and a statement. Mr abiy said there was a catholic devise strategy to defeat the grand people's liberation front in the regional capital makaay without harming civilians late in november. Mr abi declared victory. Over the tb l. f. An armed resistance has continued yesterday. If government rejected america's demands describing. Mr lincoln's comments as regrettable. Thousands are known to have died in the conflict and more than two million people have been displaced. The growing civil war has drawn in fighters from neighboring regions and troops from eritrea which borders tigray to the north. I'm gonna stay. International has just released a report detailing its investigation into this incident that took place in late november an accident which is one of the oldest and most famous holy cities. Tom gardner addis. ababa correspondent. Ever soldiers killed hundreds of civilians over two days. And what i'm going to stay says was retaliation for an attack by local youth on their military camp now. Amnesty says the soldiers roams around the streets of the city picking out on young men and killing them on the spot then proceeded to plunder the city essentially of everything of value survivors said that all they could see on the streets with bodies and people crying this systematic slaughter civilians and axiom may amount to crimes against humanity according to amnesty. And you say the main players in this incident or allegedly airtran soldiers right just to remind people. This conflict has drawn in a few other parties. In addition to the ethiopian federal army and two grand forces loyal to the tps laugh you also have militia security forces from may bring regional state of. Im hara which has a rivalry with the laugh and disputed territories along their border and then and this is really controversial element. You have troops from eritrea. Which since the beginning of the conflict has been fighting alongside the ethiopian army against the which has a long rivalry with as well as to whether all these parties are committing atrocities. I think based on everything we know so far. Yes but i think. Eritrean soldiers are the most widely and extensively implicated and there are allegations of other atrocities beyond. What's happened in axiom. Ever since the war began in late november we've been hearing accounts trickling out which beginners rumor clearer. Picture is slowly started to emerge. We've seen several videos that appear to show ethiopian soldiers. Standing among the bodies of civilians. They've murdered there was an investigation by human rights. Watch found. European army had shelled towns including the capital of tigray mckelway killing at least eight hundred civilians including women and children and winding back to the beginning of the war the very first atrocity we heard about was this massacre in the town of my tatra which is in western tigray near the border with the neighboring regional state. I'm harlem according to a report that amnesty published at the time most of the victims were. I'm horrors murdered by militia. Sure the ousted rulers of tigray the epl f. That was then confirmed by day. State appointed human rights commission. Here however take ryan's reflect across the border to saddam tell of attacks on civilians by them militiamen an by government soldiers in the same area for its part. What is the european government saying about all these reports so that is an important question on february. The twenty six th the ethiopian rights commission which is a state appointed or body released a statement saying that it had also conduct an investigation. And that it's key. Findings brutally corroborated those of amnesty. That's quite a significant step forward by the commission which tried two to three years ago would never have come out with a statement like that. The question though moving forward is whether the government decides to accept its findings and act on them. We have heard a lot from the prime minister's office the attorney general's office and other government agencies about accountability but so far very little indication that the government is willing to hold anyone but members of the tepe accountable for crimes committed during this conflict. More makes it even more. Complicated of course is the fact that the prime culprits in this case were eritrean. Troops can be very politically difficult for the government. Addis ababa which has been relying on these troops from eritrea relying on its relationship with the eritrean government to conduct its military operations in

Biting the hands that would feed: Ethiopia
"Humanitarian crisis is unfolding in ethiopia's northern region of tigray. The turmoil began in november when civil war broke out between the federal government and regional forces led by the tigray people's liberation front or teepee aleph within weeks troops had entered the regional capital of mckelway and prime minister abe committed declared victory but the fighting continued. Thousands have died in the conflict and more than two million civilians have been driven from their homes. Some sixty thousand fled to neighboring sudan now. The threat of starvation looms most of the regions. Roughly six million people have been without adequate food water or medicine. For weeks. ethiopia's tigray region is facing an alarming -tarian crisis. Basically because aid workers are not able to get essential supplies to those who are affected by the war which is essentially the entire population of the region. The vast majority. Tom gardner is abba correspondent a top regional official and that's one appointed by abby himself. He told aid workers a private meeting on january. The eighth that hundreds of thousands might starve. Meanwhile a western diplomat told me we could have a million dead there in a couple of months if humanitarian access is in opened up significantly urgently. And what is daily life like in tigray right now outside of michaela the regional capital where things are marginally better banks closed. Markets have stop shops shuttered. Fuel is run out. That's been the case. Since the war began really in early november. Last year i met one man who fled from tigray to addis ababa and he said to me even if you have the money you don't have a bank if you have grain you don't have a mill if you have mill you don't have power and that seems to be pretty representative from the accounts. We're hearing on top of that. Hospitals are running. mt hospital. staff have not been paid since october according to medicine some volunteer doctors without borders. You've had more access than most every hospital. They've been into they found entirely looted. All of this is just the knock on effects of the conflict and tigray which it sounds is still going on right so the war began in the start of november. It was the culmination of long standing. Tensions between the which ran the region and for thirty years was the dominant force in the federal government. In addis ababa the capital as well until two thousand and one thousand nine when they were pushed out following mass protests and replaced by abby half mad prime minister the abbey and the pilaf simmered for two years before rupturing eventually towards the end of last year. More than two months later. The left appears to be in. Disarray is being ousted from the regional capital and it's waging something akin to an insurgency in the countryside now it's troops control of the countryside particularly in the center of the region. It doesn't control major towns its leaders including the ousted. President have been essentially a well. We haven't heard from them for over a month. And some of the founding members of the been captured or shot dead so the fighting continues especially in central tigray but the prime minister. I be met. He believes it's only a matter of time now before the rest of what he calls. The gender are captured or killed but this whole conflict was the result of the federal government looking to take control of restive region. Now they have arrested region where the humanitarian crisis. What are they doing about. That does with dispute these accounts all the humanitarian crisis earlier this week. A spokesman for the federal disaster management agency said in an interview that there is no starvation in ethiopia alec baldwin. Dr a couple of days ago the federal ministry of peace claimed it was distributing a to almost two million citizens northern ethiopia. And the minister of peace told me that even reaching central tigray which is live under the control of forces so that seems implausible. I mean our forces regularly attack military convoys so it's impossible for the government to deliver supplies safely and then on the other hand emergency supplies being delivered by the un and international ngos. They can't get into these areas either because they're not allowed by the army which controls access an agreement that the un signed last month with the federal government which was supposed to allow them and allow aid groups to travel freely throughout the region. That's basically not been honored for. Un staff was shorter and detained last month. For entering areas which senior government official later said they were not supposed to go and an points to the key question. Here which is is the government being deliberately obstructive and a lot of people in the diplomatic and humanitarian community. Recommended is one u. n. Diplomat told me that the lack of humanitarian access is part and parcel of the war campaign.
Many Tigray refugees entering Sudan with nothing but their clothes: UNHCR
"Nearly sixty thousand people. From ethiopia's volatile tigray region have now crossed the border to remote southeastern sudan optimal than two months of fighting many with just the clothes on their backs. The emergency has created a massive protection challenge for the un refugee agency in sudan. Unhcr which is doing everything. It can't provide what they need as spokesperson. Xl bishop tells us news is daniel johnson. I've just been on a mission to the east. Where i have looked at the response in relation to the refugee influx from ideo. Peel right. so we're going to talk about the refugee influx which comes after two and a half months of fighting water. The numbers now that you're seeing seeking shelter over the border of sudan from ethiopia's northern region of tigray so we have about fifty eight thousand at europeans. Which are actually entered into saddam at the moment the influx is between two to five hundred people daily coming across the border. They're coming in through to border areas Diet and lewke that number coming over two to five hundred a day. That's a lot less than it was but you suggesting that perhaps people are just too far away from the border to get to safety across the border now yes the first influx which resources came from the villages on the western side of tigray at the moment the people which we are seeing of people who have walked for some time what we see is that maybe we have an indication that the western side of being emptied and the people seeking shelter not come from further away. What are they telling you what are their needs. So i mean. Most of the people have Actually entered sudan without anything so they come with their clothes but many many few coming with no possessions at what we hear is that many come without documentation which is also something which we are trying to address the first influx came in relation to direct fighting the influx which we have now. The people are telling us that it's more in relation to the fact that they don't feel safe in tigray not so much because of the fighting because they are from the gray area. So do you have an idea. About what the level of fighting is in tigray today. What is your access you know we are working on the sudan side and our office in addis. Ababa is actually trying to gain access now. What we are doing is trying to relocate them. From the border areas further inland. We have two camps at the moment which are some distance from the border where border conflict should not be a problem. Okay but i'm just concerned that there's no access to hundreds of thousands potentially of people on the other side of the border of sudan with. He need essential food. Water and other services reported rising malnutrition from the office for the coordination of humanitarian affairs and they cited bureaucratic obstacles in in getting access to people who need it so. What's the latest you have on tensely getting help to these people in need as we are sitting here on the sudan side we are focusing on the influx which has come across the border from at the opium and we also have offices in the opium which are dealing with the people who have moved inside the tigray area but also inside at your more at large. So let's talk about two and a half months into this conflict. In the northern region of tigrayan ethiopia. You're trying to relocate tens of thousands potentially of refugees because you've got camps further inland in sudan. Could you may be explain what the difficulties are first of all. It's always a challenge to actually find. Land land something which is owned here by individuals but also by government and we have been working together with the government of sudan. We go a piece of land which is old campsite which is called ambre kuba what we have placed about twenty thousand refugees at the moment here. We have within. I would say short span in able to at least all stem in attempts but also ensure water health and food the second site which we have because kuba has been saturated is tenable. it's further way than kouba and it takes about twelve to fourteen sometimes. Sixteen hours to actually have the buses leaving the border area arriving at the campsite. Which therefore makes it arrivals in the middle of the night now. The campsite is located in a very remote area where we don't have any electricity and we are concerned that actually offloading these amounts of people in the middle of the night with no lights is something of a concern to us. We are trying to do this now. In such a way that we have larger area rub whole set up where we host people until we have the song light out again and then we give them the tents which have been set up for them. Sure and final. Question to you mr bishop. We are two and a half months into this conflict refugees telling you that. They are hopeful. Being able to return amid this fighting between two grants and the marines in the northern region of ethiopia. Refugees are still hopeful. But i think that what we see Is that people are here for longer term and why we have had some people expressing hopes to return they would like to return to the tigray. Which was there some three months ago not to the new situation which stay. I've heard the bald.
Ethiopian military says it killed 15 Tigray rebels
"Now, and the tension between the government in Addis Ababa and the northern province of Tigre is continuing. You'll recall that armed conflict in early November broke out between the Ethiopian army. And the T p L F T T Dry People's Liberation Front government declared victory within a month. Now, the army has announced the killing and arrest of more civilian and military leaders off the TPLF. That speak to Martin clout. Now who formerly off this parish and is an expert on the Horn of Africa. Martin, What can you tell us about this announcement late last night by the Ethiopian government? Does it sound plausible? In terms of what they're saying? What are they? What are they telling us? They've done Well, yes, it does. I mean, it's it's clear that they have made a number of arrests and people are being killed. I mean, including some really quite significant figures like a very well do who was a former president of Tigre and the chairman of the Tigre People's Liberation Front. One thing one has to remember is that this is now a guerilla war Thebes. Gran's withdrew when McCallie fell. That's the capital of the region of Tigre. They withdrew to the mountains. There's now heavy fighting going on across the region with Eritrean forces from the north on damn horror militia. Backing the Ethiopian forces from the south and from the east on this is now a full scale war that is going on, which is frankly bogging down. Everybody involved. So when you when you talk about the war continuing, of course, the rhetoric coming out of Addis is that they have resolved this. Well, I don't think we have to take that terribly seriously. I mean, to be honest with you that the thing you need to ask yourself is why is it that all independent journalists apart from one Belgian, who managed to get in have been banned from the area. There aren't even embedded Ethiopian journalists up on the front. Onboard. The situation sounds frankly, pretty dreadful. What is what more given that the beginning of the conflict? We We weren't really able to get through too many people into dry where there there have been all sorts of reports of destruction of cultural artifacts. And so on. What? What more do we know about that? Well, I've just been able to stand up for what happened at the church off Mariam in in Axle, which is one of the holy sites off. Ethiopia. It's the site at which the Ark of the Covenant is believed to be kept, which could may only be seen by a monk. A guardian monk on dawn, the 15th of December What happened was there was a confrontation. Troops entered the compound, which they're not meant to do. There was a confrontation with the people inside. They were forced outside into the square and up to 750. People were shot by the horror and the Ethiopian troops outside on. That is not the only one. There's also now There's a report, which has been actually confirmed by the Ethiopians themselves that the oldest mosque in Africa, then Ajusshi mosque, which was built by the companions off the Prophet Mohammed in the fourth century, was also shelled. Theise. You can say this was done because the two grands built trenches in the area. But these these are really serious damage to the cultural artifact. And on top of that you have a number off factories, which were built in in a number of towns, which have been either trashed or demolished. And many of them are not being looted and that their contents taken to Eritrea.

Ethiopia's conflict spills over border as thousands flee
"This week, he sent federal troops into a province of his own country. Hundreds are reported dead in the northern region of Tigre and refugees air spilling over the border into Sudan. So what explains the shift from peace to conflict? Michelle Gavin is a former ambassador and senior fellow for African studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. Ambassador Gavin We're talking about the Ethiopian province of Tigre, where the violence is happening. It's squeezed into the northwest corner of Ethiopia. Figure it straddles the border of Eritrea to its north. What is so important about Tigre relative to the rest of Ethiopia? Well for many years, the Tigre and People's Liberation Front that sort of dominant political and military entity in Tigre was really first among equals in the ruling coalition for all of Ethiopia so to Graham's played an incredibly prominent role in Ethiopian governance, politics, security But with the rise of the new Prime Minister Ahmed There's been a bit of a re balancing in Ethiopia. And this is kind of opened up contest station from ethnicities across this incredibly diverse country. And there has been kind of widespread feeling that for too long, a small minority from Tigre had too much control of the federal government. So there's political tension between Tigre and Addis Ababa. Are there also historical grievances between two grand central government that we need to mention? I mean, is there a back story here? Tigre is now fighting at us. There's a lot of back story Ethiopian and certainly to Gran's were and incredibly, they weren't just dominant, politically and in the security services for many years, certainly under the leadership of Prime minister malice, But they also suffered most in the long and very costly in blood and treasure war with your tria. So there is there's also you know, a sense of probably grievance in that sense. Abby's come to power they feel targeted by new personnel choices by new policy choices. What maybe others in Ethiopia see as a re balancing the Tigre ins can often feel like persecution despite the tremendous sacrifices that they have made for the country. There are reports from Tigre oven. Ethiopian air campaign heavy bombardment at times. I mean, what's at stake here as far as you can tell ambassador Is it a possible civil war between two grands and Ethiopian troops? There is Tigre saying. We've had enough. We want independence. How should we interpret what's going on? We should absolutely be worried about a civil war, which I don't think would necessarily be contained just Teo, the Tigre region, giving all of the other tensions and actors. So what's at stake? You know the wellbeing of over 110 million Ethiopians. Regional stability. Conflict in Ethiopia has a very high chance of drawing in Eritrea. Sudan, tipping the balance of Sudan zone very fragile transition. Ethiopia's incredibly important actor in trying to bring stability to Somalia to South Sudan distracted and weekend. Ethiopia is really quite devastating, Tio this entire horn region which is strategically really significant, and there are a lot of actors external to Africa. In the Gulf, the Chinese and from the West, all of whom care deeply about stability in this region, so the prospect of drawing others in of proxy conflict it's really a powder keg, and the consequence will not be confined solely to what's happening inside Ethiopia's borders. Michelle Gavin, senior fellow for Africa Studies at the Council on Foreign Relations. She also served as ambassador to Botswana from 2011 to 14. Ambassador Gavin Thank you very much. Thank you.
Ethiopia to replace Tigray region leadership as forces clash
"Let's move to Ethiopia, which is currently technically in a state of civil war. On Thursday, the Ethiopian military and officials in the northern Tigre region accused each other of instigating a civil conflict that has seen fighting between government soldiers and troops loyal to the regional administration. In a televised address early on Wednesday, Ethiopia's prime minister Abbiamo accused the local government of attacking federal troops, and he said the region's ruling party, the Tigre, People's Liberation Front, or TPLF, were traitors. We're going to the National Defense Force that has been in the bunkers for the past 20, plus years defending its people and the country by paying heavy sacrifices with its blood and flesh has been attacked this evening in Michael. And many other places by traders and the force they organized. The army has been attacked from behind by its own citizens, and many have been martyred, wounded and properties destroyed. This force of destruction has been engaged in many counterproductive activities for the past many months. The regional president of Tigre. Debra Montgomery kill, has described the actions of the military as an invasion were joined on the line out from Addis Ababa by William Davison. He's a senior analyst on Ethiopia for the International Crisis Group. Thank you for joining us. What's the latest that you're hearing how many casualties in the fighting? Well, actually, the number of casualties of fatalities is one of the things that is not clear. There is still a communications blackout across Tigre. But there are certainly casualties being reported from the hospital visits and outside the thing. Essentially, we have an active conflict, a CZ you've clearly described in the introduction. The fighting has been concentrated in West too great so far has bean incursions by the federal military from West agree that Paul is the horror region on horror regions. Forces have also been involved. To some extent. I think it's worth noting that degrades main supply route would be through West a great and into Eastern sedan reported on so that perhaps explains the focus of that fighting, and we've also seen small search skirmishes around medically. To grace capital and in the last day or so, that is involved air strikes by the federal military to try and take out military installations around metal. And that really indicates a major problem here, which is that part of the federal military appeared to be siding with a great vision. Can you explain a little bit of background to this? Why has this situation been allowed to reach to this state of hostility? Well, I mean offices that there's a very long political background to great region has a long history of autonomy to the central government, as well as being involved in central politics. More recently, TPLF was the preeminent party, the ruling coalition that lasted essentially until 2018 when Communist at the Army came to power. No off. He took power on the tplf. They lost a lot off their federal positions and power. And there were all sorts of accusations traded back and forth allegations of destabilization as we've heard what's on the TPL aside. They said that they were unfairly targeted prosecutions by the federal government and also discrimination and marginalization More general Then there was the creation of a national ruling party by prime minister Beyond the TPLF objected to that, Andi they sat it out, became formerly part of the opposition this year. This is evolved into an electoral dispute at the constitutional disputes. The federal government tried to extend all government terms when it delayed elections due to covered 19 Tigre opposed us. They run their own poll and that lets the federal government describing Tigre is government is unlawful and takeaways Government government, saying the federal government had overstayed its constitutional mandate.

Otherwise, the air Force would not be bombing those installations. This is a major piece of the puzzle in terms of the balance of power here, and it suggests that we could be entering a protracted conflict that is a conflict that is likely to escalate, it could destabilize Ethiopia and its armed forces it could bring in Eritrea.

The flights game some came from China on some came from Dubai. It was a combined shipment of Jack Ma Foundation and who own supplies? They arrived in Addis on Tuesday and from there we are moving only consignments to almost fifty countries across Africa so far we have moved up to thirty countries and every day we are completing that consignment right so on the ground then from Addis Ababa. You've reached around thirty countries as you say what's the the final figure Africa now if we African country which ones have called for help. And how is the decision taken about which ones are helped look going to all the African countries in accordance with ovulation in accordance with needs? But the most in need are where the number of cases are flaring up. We have cases in west Africa in Senegal as well as in southern Africa and flights. Today just give me a picture of actually what's happening on the ground in Addis at the humanitarian hub. Everything is working. We allocate the basically parcel or or kit the cargo in accordance to fly throughout that we have so the lanes will depart at this angle to multiple countries. Come back and pick up again. Another would go to multiple vendors. Of course we're using several airplanes in order to reach a maximum.

It's not exactly going to UN agencies or NGOs this is going to member states and the government authorities W in coordination with the local government authorities ensures that all the aid or assistance in terms of medical supplies goes to work. It is neat. Could you say this is an historic sort of arrangement to show solidarity in terms of keeping supply chains going because the secretary general has expressed a lot of concern about global supply chains when code actually hits because yes African countries that have been affected already? But it's really nothing compared with what is going to happen. This was the first flight from Addis.

And we have a hub in Panama for Latin American for Central America. So these are all going to be coming online as we speak and they would serve as the respective regions both in terms of cargo as well as in terms of personnel the eventual aim is to help ninety five countries in total all. Actually probably it's GONNA reach almost Henry Than Twenty affected countries so we have the capacity to scale up as needed of course if the funding is provided of course and. How much funding do you need? You're asking what three hundred fifty million dollars. How much do you have so far? We entered sixty was initial request. Now we are revising these figures depending on the data that we are getting supplies. As the sourcing and manufacturing increases we will be increasing our air assets in order to make sure that the supplies getting time to the affected countries enter the countries that needs.

Ethiopian Officials Release Preliminary Report
"Wrong in the crash of a Boeing seven thirty seven max plane in Ethiopia that killed all one hundred and fifty seven people on board. We have some answers this morning safety investigators in Ethiopia released their report today, and they concluded that the pilots didn't do anything wrong. They followed the instructions from Boeing on how to operate the plane, although they still couldn't control the aircraft. When it started to go down. This was the second crash involving that line of Boeing planes in five months and it prompted countries around the world to ground all seven thirty seven max planes NPR's. Russell Lewis has been covering the strain joins us. Now, Russell Boeing had been suggesting recently that at least in part of the reason for the crash could have been user air this. The report by the OPN investigators seems to clear the pilots of any wrongdoing, right? On the surface. Yes. It is a preliminary report we don't expect the final report to be released perhaps for another year. So obviously, there are still some findings that will change. There are still some analyses that obviously still need to happen. But this is the preliminary report, and essentially it said that the takeoff it appeared very normal. But what happened not long afterwards was that the nose of the plane pitched down violently towards the earth. And really here is the key part, which eat the opium airlines actually tweeted out in response as this news conference was still going on. And it was this that the pilots had been following the recommendations that Boeing had put in the checklists and approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. But it was still not enough to prevent this plane from crashing her. So a lot of the focus in the past few weeks has been on this new flight control software that was in these planes. Does the report mention this at all not really? An ineffective didn't really quite come out. You know in this report reporters at this news conference in Addis Ababa, the Ethiopian capital did ask about it today. But it was sort of a a bit beyond the scope of of what they were talking about. But what you're seeing in some of the statements that are coming out is that this plane was had a persistence of nosediving when it before it crashed in that the crew was following the recommendations that Boeing had had put in place, and I think you know, that this certainly increases the pressure on Boeing, and I think it also calls into question though, why wasn't the Boeing seven thirty-seven max fleet grounded after that. First crash, the lion or crashed into Asia in October. And then the United States several days to ground these planes while other countries went ahead with it. Yeah. That's right. You know? And clearly Boeing knows that has a problem. It was working on the software fix to try to fix. What wrong went went wrong in the Indonesia crashed or knock? Tober and on the surface, it seemingly appears as the same thing that happened last month in the THEO P and airlines crash. You know, a crash that killed one hundred fifty seven people in as we say it puts the pressure firmly back on Boeing, and you know, by default on the Federal Aviation Administration. You know, the the regulator in the United States Russell stay with us. I want to bring in another voice to the conversation. Peter goals who will have a view on the federal government's role here. He's the former managing director for the National Transportation Safety board, Mr. goals. Thanks for being with us. Thank you for having me. What do you see is the single most important finding in this report? Well, that the pilots followed the procedures as outlined by Boeing and confirmed by the FAA following lion air. I mean, it was it was kind of an arrogant directive, I think that Boeing put out after the accident, which essentially said read them in Ewell and fly it, and you should be. Ok well, apparently, you're not and that is. A big deal not only for Boeing, but for the FAA that signed off on it. Right. So does this mean that responsibility for the at least the THEO paean airlines crash based on this report lies squarely at the feet of Boeing. Well, we don't know that yet because as was indicated the report was very preliminary. And I think a couple of other interesting things one is they discounted the idea that there was a bird strike that through the angle of attack indicator off, and they discounted that the tape takeoff was in any way unusual. But clearly the spotlight is turned on ever brighter on both Boeing and the certification procedures. But like Russell mentioned they had already been working on this software glitch. I mean, do you see that as something? That's that's far. Bigger problem than Boeing is actually acknowledging. Well, I think that the FAA just announced it they're going to have a certification commission that's going to review process. This plane is not going to get back in the air right away and the fix. I think is going to be reviewed extensively before anything is approved. I think we've got a ways to go. I mean, the hard thing is I'll put this to both of you. There are a lot of different factors that go into trying to explain why an airplane crash happens, right? Russell russell. Yeah. Absolutely. You know in any aviation accident. It is it is not one thing that causes a crash. It has many small things that cause a crash and that all sort of comes together. And so you look at pilot training, you you look at you know, how the pilots were on you know, during that flight where they overly fatigued. Did they get enough rest the night before they look at the aircraft? They look at the air traffic controllers. There are many things that sort of play into it. And it is not one thing. It is many many things that you know, that that play into it, which is why these investigations take so long, but clearly many questions about Boeing and about its fleet, you know, continue to bubble up. What kind of long-term damage has this done to Boeing do? You think Peter? I think Boeing is in a very difficult position. You know, it is in a highly competitive situation with Airbus they brought the seven thirty seven max to the market on a very expedited basis this has damaged their reputation, and they are going to have to work hard to regain their position. And it's also damaged the FAA frankly, and they're going to have to work hard to regain their gold standard as the regulatory agency of record for the world. And you say damage the FAA because there have been questions about whether the FAA of delegated too much to Boeing to do its own safety checks. Absolutely. There's numerous investigations that are going to go on to see whether Boeing head the capability internally to do a rigorous review of this complex system. And it's not clear that they did. Just real quick Russell has Boeing given a response to this report yet. Yeah. In fact, I reached out to Boeing this morning to to sort of get their take on it. And I got a terse six word answer for them. And it was this. We are reviewing the preliminary findings that was it NPR's. Russell lewis. We also weren't conversation with Peter goals.

"Breaking news here President Trump's now grounded every Boeing seven thirty-seven max, effective immediately. United States was still the only country left in the world flying. And after the GOP air disaster. Boeing says it has already asked the FAA to do it really wasn't Trump is what they are trying to say at this point. Apparently, according to the Daily Mail, President Trump said he was grounding all usfl on Boeing seven thirty seven max, eight nine planes effective immediately in an emergency order of prohibition any plane that is currently kirtland the air will be allowed to land. I mean, I assume otherwise things are gonna get real awkward real quickly. And then the planes will be grounded until further notice. He said in a surprise announcement on Wednesday afternoon. Trump made the decision following conversations with transportation secretary, Elaine Chao, Boeing CEO, Dennis Muilenburg and the Federal Aviation Administration after new information and physical evidence emerged on tragic incidents involving the plane from said they're all in agreement with the action planes that are in the air will be grounded if they're the seven thirty seven max, they'll be grounded upon landing at the destination. This is the second major 737 max eight air flight to go down in the last six months. There's an Ethiopian air. Flights airlines flight that crashed on Sunday shortly after taking off from Addis Ababa killed all one hundred and fifty seven people on board. There's a lion air flight from Indonesia on a seven thirty seven Matt's eight that crashed in October taking the lives of one hundred and eighty nine people. So once a plane type is is implicated in the death of three hundred and forty people probably you're going to need to ground all those planes. President Trump said our hearts, go out to those who lost loved ones to the friends into their families in both Ethiopia in Lyon. Airlines crashes that involve the seven thirty seven max aircraft is a terrible terrible thing. Boeing's an incredible company. They're working very very hard right now. Boeing he said, we'll come up with an answer soon. But until they do the planes are grounded. The stock. Shares started tumble. I'm no stock picker. But I was I was just in the next few days when he would want to buy. Because it's just gonna get destroyed. However after consultation with the us Federal Aviation Administration, the National Transportation Safety board and aviation authorities and customers around the world Boeing has determined avenue abundance of caution and in order to reassure the flying public of the aircraft safety to recommend to the FAA the temporary suspension of operations of the entire global fleet. According to a statement from Boeing muhlenberg also put out a statement at the time. The state evidence in coordination with new satellite. Data available this morning led to the decision. Apparently there there was a controversy of whether this was pilot error or whether it was at the plane was basically trying to take back control of the aircraft. When the pilots decided to get involved. There's a statement from the American Airlines they've twenty four max aids. At this time. There are no facts on the cause of the accident. Other than news reports we have full confidence in the aircraft and our crew members or the best and most experienced in the industry. So I'm sure as more information comes out, we'll find out whether it is in fact, a problem with the aircraft or whether this has something to do with pilot in experience because the truth is that there are legitimately hundreds of seven thirty seven max eight aircraft that are in circulation right now. The vast majority of them in China and the United States and Canada, all three countries have grounded, the seven thirty seven NATs aircraft. One of the things that has come under fire is matched maneuvering system. It's a safety feature designed to prevent planes from entering stall or losing lift. The entry seven seven thirty seven that's eight because the heavier engines had changed the dynamic qualities of the jet and could cause the nose to pitch up in certain conditions during manual flight. So the system apparently kicked in automatically. When autopilot was off when the plane was turning steeply climbing after takeoff with flaps at close to stalling speed. And when the angle of attack is high and the system apparently deactivates when the angle of attack is lowered to a sufficient level. Says that there is still no systemic performance issue, and there's no basis for ordering the aircraft grounded. But obviously if your book for a Boeing seven thirty-seven next eight you're gonna think twice about getting on that plane airline pilots, and at least two US flights have reported that an automated system seemed to cause their Boeing seven thirty-seven max planes to tilt down. Suddenly the pilots said that soon after engaging the autopilot on Boeing seven thirty-seven planes, the nose tilted down sharply in both cases, they recovered quickly after disconnecting. The auto pilot. The pilot reports were filed last year in a debate in a database compiled by NASA, they're voluntary safety reports. They don't publicly reveal the name of the pilots the airlines or the location of the incident. The opium pilot who saw the crash site minutes after the disaster said the plate appear to have slid directly into the ground. American Airlines spokesperson Ross Feinstein said the airline has received. No reports from pilots about problems with the antisocial technology, south west has said the same thing. So obviously, we'll keep an eye on all of this. And I'll be curious to find out. Whether in fact, this is design flaw in the aircraft's or whether this is pilot error. Meanwhile, the left continues to push forward the idea of impeaching President Trump and the excuses. They're using are increasingly asinine Representative. Al green out yesterday. He said, listen, we should impeach President Trump. Why he's a democrat of Texas why well because bigotry is impeachable which is kind of a shocking statement bigotry is impeachable. Really? How?

That's where Ethiopian Airlines flight three zero to supposed to land yesterday. My does has relatives and friends of people on board have been gathering there for the past twenty four hours today they've been getting more information from Kenyan authorities in someday. TOPS airlines management who have told them if any of them want to fly to Addis Ababa to be closer with the investigation and that education of their bodies of their loved ones that that offer is available to them at the same time. An emergency center has been set up in the Nairobi airport. If any of them needs any formal supporting student counseling that's offered to them for free and is ups airlines flying it all today. Not only Allen's flying today. Marco. In fact, today there was another ET three or two flew into this morning. And we spoke to some of the passengers who were on that flight. They told us it was all as you might expect any other flights nothing. More unusual or eventful happen arrived here safely as we speak. Right now, another Allen's life is just about the land here, the Jomo Kenyatta international airport. You must understand that. This is a very popular root for ups airlines. They fly internet will be four times a day. It's a quick shuttle as you might expect from the biggest airline in the continents. What is the safety record of Ethiopian Airlines? If you've been Allen's has what you might consider an excellent safety record on the continent is Africa's most successful airlines flies, the largest fleets, and it has had no major incidents of this not in comparison to the number of fatalities will senior since nine hundred ninety six that's when he tied to hijacking. It did lose an aircraft in twenty fifteen in Beirut's, but nothing compared to the tragedy. We've seen yet especially on the continent where they SAP record can often be very programmatic. It you have been Allen's has done exceptionally. Well, and they like to talk about how new and are more than fleet is compared to others on the continent. And what has the airline itself said about the crash in the last twenty four hours? The Allen has taken the extraordinary staple. Grounding, all of the long 737 max aids on its bleeds. They said is not because it had a defect but out of an abundance of caution, and they are. Ascending the best wishes to everybody was involved at thoughts and prayers, and they say that the man in charge of this aircraft was a very experienced senior captain with eight thousand flights hours this lane. Got the Christ was only four months old and fighting flew in from Jonah's begging South Africa into Addis Ababa the morning before it's priced on its way to Nairobi. Even if the evidence ends up pointing to an issue with the seven three seven max eight the Boeing aircraft in question. Could this crash have an economic effect on the airline company if the opium it is still too early to tell this might have a much what impact in people's confidence in the airline. But the way the facts against all of the evidence looking at other competitors for the company that might benefit can always a South African Airways. It's a small group of airlines. So it might see some minor effects on its bottom line. But I think longtime the Alan will survive. Larry, I flew Ethiopian Airlines more than a dozen years ago. I know it's got great employee. Loyalty, does it employ a lot of. Anythi if you've outlines is seen as a pride of the prime minister stated that and even in declaring a day of national mourning today here rated how much of an important part of the economy that is an employee.

But when you think of what it has done if you've been has made by the Dubai of Africa at the allies is almost seen like the Emirates of Africa, it takes Africa's from all around the continent drives them in Addison, then moved on to Europe Asia and North America.
