Air France and Airbus to stand trial over deadly 2009 crash in the Atlantic Ocean that killed 228 — RT World News From “RT World News”



A Paris court has ruled that Air France and Airbus will stand trial on charges of involuntary manslaughter over the 2009 crash of flight AF447, killing all 228 people on board, the deadliest crash in the airline’s history.

The ruling on Wednesday follows the prosecutor’s recommendation that the Paris court overturns a previous judicial decision to drop the investigation against the airline and aircraft manufacturer.The Paris prosecutor had initially only called for Air France to stand trial on manslaughter charges but the general prosecutor’s office supported charging both Air France and Airbus.“It’s a huge satisfaction to feel that we have finally been heard by the courts,” Daniele Lamy, president of an association of victims’ families, stated following the announcement of the court ruling.It comes 11 years after Air France Flight 447 entered an aerodynamic stall before crashing into the Atlantic Ocean in the early hours of the morning, as it traveled from Rio de Janeiro to Paris Charles de Gaulle, killing all 216 passengers and 12 crew members. The incident was the deadliest crash in Air France’s history and the worst aviation accident for an Airbus A330. Salvage crews took two years to find the plane’s crash site, with the wreckage having sunk 3,900 meters down into the ocean. After an investigation took place, a report stated that pilot errors and faulty speed-monitoring equipment had been responsible for the accident.

Following the report’s release, prosecutors alleged that Air France was indirectly responsible for the incident as it provided insufficient training on how pilots should respond if there was a malfunction during a flight, resulting in an incorrect reaction from the pilots.Lawyers working on behalf of Airbus said that they would lodge an appeal of the decision to take the company to trial. Air France did not immediately respond.Think your friends would be interested? Share this story!

At least 139 Palestinians, including some 40 children, have been killed in the Gaza Strip since Monday. 950 others have been wounded. In the occupied West Bank, Israeli forces have killed at least 13 Palestinians protesting against continued Israeli occupation and the ongoing bombardment of Gaza : worldnews From “World News”



Imagine in the past, when black guys would try to stand up against their masters or when some smaller groups in nazi germany would stand up against their regime and people telling them after they got killed: “oh my god, why did you do that, wasnt it obvious that you had no chance since they are better equipped, its senseless” …Stop this fcing “everybody knows that this or that will happen so just dont do it, deal with your misery and accept it”-argumentation. People who think that way make 0 room for change, they unironically help with their attitude that nothing changes and make extactly these people who try to stand up against bad things look like idiots.Many people in the past gave up their lives for us to have those rights we have today. Better keep that in mind.

SIX children & 2 women killed in Israeli airstrike on crowded Gaza refugee camp – reports — RT World News From “RT World News”



An IDF air raid on a densely populated refugee camp in Gaza has killed at least eight people, the majority of them children, according to multiple reports, as Israeli warplanes continue to hammer the blockaded Palestinian enclave.

The IDF dropped at least three bombs on a three-story home in the al-Shati refugee camp early on Saturday morning, according to a witness cited by the Times of Israel. While Gaza Health Ministry spokesman Ashraf al-Qudra initially put the death toll at seven, he said the figure was expected to rise, as other victims were believed to be buried in rubble. At least 15 others were injured.“I saw the bodies of four people, including children, being rushed to the hospital. I could not endure and ran back to my home.” said the witness, Said al-Ghoul, a resident of the camp. He claimed that no warning was given before the strike.🚨 Shati’ refugee camp massacre A doctor is telling Al Jazeera that medics tried to save as many body parts as possible for the 5 children and 2 women killed so they could be buried. Death toll expected to increase as bodies still trappedOnly survivor is baby Omar, two months pic.twitter.com/BNN6y9sEV2— لينة (@LinahAlsaafin) May 15, 2021Subsequent reports noted eight fatalities as a rescue operation got underway, including six children and two women, many said to belong to the Abu Hatab family. Photos purporting to show the aftermath of the strike amid the rescue effort have circulated online.Soon after the deadly strike, Hamas, the political party and militant group that governs Gaza, fired yet another volley of rockets into southern Israel in retaliation, the Times reported.Despite putting out a steady stream of commentary throughout the offensive, the IDF has yet to acknowledge the camp bombing, instead stressing that its operations are directed at rocket launch sites and other military targets – often hidden among civilian infrastructure. It claims more than 2,000 Hamas rockets have been fired since Monday, when the latest bout of violence kicked off.An average neighborhood in Gaza:a mosquea kindergarten& a Hamas terror tunnel.While Hamas deliberately embeds its terror infrastructure in civilian areas, the IDF takes all possible precautions to avoid harming civilians when striking. pic.twitter.com/pYYIZ7b3eW— Israel Defense Forces (@IDF) May 15, 2021Also known as the ‘beach camp’ for its close proximity to Gaza’s Mediterranean coast, al-Shati is the territory’s third largest refugee site, home to 86,000 residents, who are packed into just 0.3 square miles (0.5km), according to the UN. The agency claims the crowded camp is among the most densely populated areas on Earth.One of eight official refugee camps in Gaza, al-Shati was established in 1948 after tens of thousands of Palestinians fled their homes and villages during the Israeli War for Independence, also known to Palestinians as the ‘Nakba’, or ‘catastrophe’, which saw 750,000 Arabs displaced from territory that became Israel. The refugee population has since swelled to around 5.7 million worldwide, according to the UN, with over 1.3 million remaining in Gaza.Despite repeated calls for a ceasefire from international bodies, hostilities have continued into the sixth day as of Saturday morning, seeing at least 137 Palestinians killed, including 36 children, and nearly 1,000 wounded. At least nine Israelis have also perished in rocket fire, among them a six-year-old girl and one IDF soldier, in addition to around 500 injured.Hamas’ first rocket barrage on Monday night followed days of heated protests over looming evictions of Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem, prompting police crackdowns and violent clashes with security forces that left hundreds injured. IDF bombing raids started soon after, seeing hundreds of strikes on Gaza, some leveling high-rise structures, including apartment blocks and media offices. The military also claims to have struck dozens of Hamas targets and assassinated several senior officials in the organization, insisting that it takes precautions to avoid killing civilians and that the bombing is defensive.
