“Kogalymavia Flight 9268 (7K9268/KGL9268[a]) was an international chartered passenger flight, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia (branded as Metrojet), which crashed in northern Sinai on 31 October 2015 at 04:13 UTC (06:13 EST) following departure from Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport, Egypt, en route to Pulkovo Airport, Saint Petersburg, Russia.
The aircraft, an Airbus A321-231, was carrying 217 passengers and seven crew members. Of those mostly tourists aboard, at least 3 were Ukrainian, one Belarusian, and the rest were Russian.
With its death toll of 224 people, the crash of Flight 9268 is the deadliest in Egyptian territory, supassing the crash of Flash Airlines Flight 604 in 2004, and has the highest number of Russian victims in an airliner crash. It is also the deadliest air crash involving an aircraft from the Airbus A320 family, surpassing TAM Airlines Flight 3054 in Brazil, and the deadliest air disaster involving Airbus A321, surpassing Air Blue Flight 202.”
“The Mount Salak Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ-100) crash occurred on 9 May 2012 when an SSJ-100 aircraft crashed on a demonstration flight operating from Halim Perdanakusuma Airport, Jakarta, Indonesia. On 10 May, the wreckage of the Sukhoi Superjet was spotted on a cliff in Mount Salak, a volcano in the province of West Java. Due to the widespread debris field where the aircraft hit the mountain, rescuers concluded that the aircraft directly impacted the rocky side of the mountain and that there was “no chance of survival”. On 12 May 2012, it was reported that the remains of several victims’ bodies had been recovered and airlifted to Halim Airport and then taken to the National Police Hospital for identification.
The final report, released 18 December 2012, indicated that the accident was caused by crew members ignoring terrain warnings that they had incorrectly attributed to a database problem. The crew had turned off the terrain warning system and were unaware that they were operating in close proximity to mountains. The crew, including the captain, were engaging in conversation with potential customers as the aircraft impacted the ground.”

“How well did the 7/7 emergency services respond?
By Dominic Casciani
BBC News home affairs correspondent
3 March 2011
From the section UK
One of the key questions at the heart of the 7 July inquests is whether the emergency services could have responded faster and better.
The London Assembly had already reported that poor communications and a lack of basic medical supplies hampered the rescue operation. So what else has the inquests learned?
The hearings have focused on a number of key areas including:
The ambulance service
The fire fighters
Overall command and control
LONDON AMBULANCE SERVICE
There was a delay of 52 minutes in getting ambulances to Tavistock Square, the scene of the bus attack where 13 people died.
Crews were only sent to the bus attack after reports of a second blast at 1040 – a controlled explosion of a suspicious package.
Jessica Ashford, the first paramedic to reach Tavistock Square, had in fact been despatched to Russell Square. She said the scene was devastating, with parts of bodies strewn across the road. Mrs Ashford alerted control at 0957 BST, performed a quick reconnaissance – and called again at 1005 demanding back-up.
The delays at Tavistock Square followed a separate half-hour delay in sending teams to Russell Square underground station, where 26 people died, the greatest loss of life.
Graeme Baxter was the first paramedic into the tunnel at Edgware Road. He called for eight more ambulances – but also told the inquests that he was frustrated to learn that crews from two stations nearby were not despatched.
Overall, only half of 201 London ambulances which were available on the day were sent to the attack scenes.
Crews who were stationed nearby were held back in case there were more attacks – and some of them were watching the events unfold on television.
At the same time, controllers were struggling to identify free ambulances to ferry the wounded to hospital. They eventually called on neighbouring ambulance services and volunteers to help at the scenes.
Helicopter Emergency Medical Service paramedic Lee Parker wrote in a debrief form that he found these decisions inexplicable.
“Due to the number of casualties involved, we had to utilise various medical staff who ended up creating more work,” he wrote. “They did not understand triage and/or major incident procedures. Other medical staff should be kept as far away as possible from these incidents.”
Jason Killens, deputy director of operations at the London Ambulance Service (LAS), told the inquests that it had been the “right decision on the day” to hold back some crews.
But in the closing days of the inquests, the coroner heard about “organised chaos” and shortcomings at the ambulance service’s disaster control room at Waterloo.
Two people who were designated to crucial roles in the unfolding events were not trained for “Gold Command” events – the procedures used across the emergency services to co-ordinate the massive effort needed in a potential crisis.
Only one member of staff was logging all the emergency calls – and she was not a trained typist capable of doing it at speed. Others were writing down important information on scraps of paper. The employee in charge of the control room’s white board could not reach more than halfway up it.
Staff brought into the disaster control room could not get to work immediately because ambulance service systems did not allow them to be logged into two computers at the same time.
Meanwhile, crews that had been despatched were not getting messages back to controllers because radio channels were blocked.
In other evidence, Coroner Lady Justice Hallett heard that the ambulance service had switched from using pagers to mobiles to transmit alerts.
Keith Grimmett, an officer in the LAS emergency planning unit, argued that pagers were more reliable in a disaster situation. During 7/7, the capital’s mobile network became overloaded with many people finding it impossible to make calls. The service began using pagers again a week after the attacks.
Mr Killens accepted that the government’s review of events was wrong when it had stated that rescue operations had not been hampered by poor communications.
LONDON FIRE BRIGADE
One of the key issues that emerged from evidence relating to firefighters was their own safety rules.
One group of firefighters said they could not enter the tunnel at Aldgate because they had not received official confirmation that the live electric rail had been turned off.
One police officer stood on the rail to prove that it was no longer live – but the crew insisted they still needed word from London Underground managers. Four other firefighters had already gone into the train.
The first crew reached King’s Cross station at 0913 – but did not go to the scene until a second crew arrived at 0942. That was because their communication protocols demanded having a back-up team available.
One police officer reported seeing firefighters waiting on the escalator for colleagues to arrive, as the walking wounded began to emerge from a tunnel.
The inquests heard that over at Edgware Road, Assistant Divisional Officer Alan Davies, then head of Paddington fire station, refused to allow his men into the tunnel because of the possibility of a dirty bomb.
Mr Davies told the inquests that his training had been to expect a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear (CBRN) incident and he could not risk flooding the tunnel with personnel until the situation was clearer.
He accepted that evidence showed that police officers and paramedics went into the tunnel before specialist officers had chance to establish whether or not there was a CBRN risk.
Meanwhile, there were also tensions between the services operating amid the chaos at Aldgate.
One paramedic said he encountered hostility from firefighters who did not understand that his role was to assess the situation and report back before doing anything else.
The police had been switching to a new digital communications system – but at the time of the attacks, they still could not use their radios underground.
At one stage, the emergency services were using runners to get information from tunnels to the ticket halls.
In September 2003, London’s emergency services staged a massive training exercise to test their ability to cope with a chemical attack on an underground station. That exercise concluded that none of the radio systems were adequate.
Some of these problems dated back to the horrific King’s Cross fire of 1987.
Sir Desmond Fennell’s report into that disaster made a string of recommendations including ensuring that communications worked underground – and that the emergency services and London Underground workers could all talk to each other on the same system.
But 18 years later, the Tube’s system was still not fully compatible with the three services. The London Underground’s system has been updated since 2005.
A succession of senior figures from across the capital’s emergency services have appeared before Lady Justice Hallett – but on the final day of the inquests, she told them to use plain English, rather than refer to things like the “Conference Demountable Unit from the Management Resource Unit”.
“Management jargon is taking over organisations,” said Lady Justice Hallett. “When it comes to something like a major incident, people do not understand what the other person is.
“All you senior people from these organisations are allowing yourselves to be taken over by management jargon… You people at the top need to say ‘We have to communicate with other people and we communicate with plain English’.”
“I am sorry if that sounded like a rant but everybody who has been here for the last few months will know I have been building up to it.””

“Met officer helps to make film on police racism after 7/7

Met officer helps to make film on police racism after 7/7
Tube death: scene from Shoot On Sight which deals with events after armed police kill an innocent man
The director of a controversial film about a Muslim police officer who faces racism at Scotland Yard today told how he was helped by a senior officer involved in a real-life race battle with the Met.
Shoot On Sight, set in the aftermath of the 7/7 attacks, tells the story of Tariq Ali – a senior officer who is discriminated against by his colleagues in the Met after an innocent Muslim man is killed by police on the London Underground.
The story bears strong parallels to the race row which has engulfed Scotland Yard as Assistant Commissioner Tarique Ghaffur sues his employers over claims of racial discrimination.
The film’s director, Jagmohan Mundhra, said Mr Ghaffur assisted in making the film more “authentic” after they met in 2006.
Mr Mundhra said: “Tarique Ghaffur gave his feedback for the script. He couldn’t talk officially but he supported us on the film. It’s inspired by him.”
The film, which stars Brian Cox, Sadie Frost, Om Puri, Greta Scacchi and Naseeruddin Shah will have a British premiere at Bafta tomorrow night ahead of a general UK release next month.
Mr Mundhra said: “The reason why I noticed Tarique Ghaffur was after 21 July when the shoot-on-sight orders were given – suddenly I saw him on TV all the time, addressing the media. I knew instinctively that it was because he was a Muslim, so I called him.
“I told him that I wanted to do a script about a Muslim police officer who is caught between the Islamaphobia of the west who works in a department where people don’t trust him and Islamic extremism where the mosque he goes to doesn’t trust him because he is a police officer.
“Mr Ghaffur said: ‘That’s well and good, but I am working for the department. If you are writing something that is negative about the department I won’t be able to support it officially – but if you want to show me the scripts I can check for you in terms of police procedures and the internal workings of the department’.”
Mr Mundhra continued: “He mentionedto me the glass ceiling. He told me: ‘I’m the highest-ranking Asian police officer, but I must tell you off the record that there is a glass ceiling.’
“It’s very interesting how life has imitated art.”
Mr Mundhra added: “I gave him the script to read and I also sent it to Scotland Yard’s film department. If they approve the script they will allow you to use their logo.
“They read this script but they said they could not endorse the film as the Menezes matter was sub judice. They said we cannot give you permission to use our uniforms, insignia. We made a fictional central London police. They allowed us to use the exterior of Scotland Yard, the spinning sign and things like that – but not use their uniforms.”
A premiere had been scheduled for 7 July – the third anniversary of the bombings – but was put back out of respect for the families of the bereaved.
Producer Aron Govil said: “The film raises important questions about the climate of fear post 7/7 and the direct impact of that terrible day. While we are mindful that the families are still grieving, it is important to look at the climate within which Londoners now live and work and have been forced to deal with on an ongoing basis.
“Everywhere, people of Asian appearance have borne the brunt of increased stopping and searching.
“Three years on, and at a time when Tarique Ghaffur’s situation is at the forefront of the London agenda, I think Londoners will find the film very insightful.”
“In 1900 the Society produced Fabianism and the Empire, the first statement of its views on foreign affairs, drafted by Bernard Shaw and incorporating the suggestions of 150 Fabian members. It was directed against the liberal individualism of those such as John Morley and Sir William Harcourt. It claimed that the classical liberal political economy was outdated, and that imperialism was the new stage of the international polity. The question was whether Britain would be the centre of a world empire or whether it would lose its colonies and end up as just two islands in the North Atlantic. It expressed support for Britain in the Boer War because small nations, such as the Boers, were anachronisms in the age of empires. In order to hold onto the Empire, the British needed to fully exploit the trade opportunities secured by war; maintain the British armed forces in a high state of readiness to defend the Empire; the creation of a citizen army to replace the professional army; the Factory Acts would be amended to extend to 21 the age for half-time employment, so that the thirty hours gained would be used in “a combination of physical exercises, technical education, education in civil citizenship…and field training in the use of modern weapons“.

In 2011, the SBA, along with the FBI and the IRS, uncovered a massive scheme to defraud this program. Civilian employees of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, working in concert with an employee of Alaska Native Corporation Eyak Technology LLC allegedly submitted fraudulent bills to the program, totaling over 20 million dollars, and kept the money for their own use. It also alleged that the group planned to steer a further 780 million dollars towards their favored contractor.”
“The Fabian Society founded the London School of Economics and Political Science in 1895 “for the betterment of society,” now one of the leading institutions in the world, an incubator of influential politicians, economists, journalists, prime ministers and liberal billionaires.
Today, the society functions primarily as a think tank and is one of 15 socialist societies affiliated with the Labour Party. Similar societies exist in Australia (the Australian Fabian Society), in Canada (the Douglas-Coldwell Foundation and the now disbanded League for Social Reconstruction), in Sicily (Sicilian Fabian Society) and in New Zealand.”
“[Fabian co-founder] Henry Havelock Ellis, known as Havelock Ellis (2 February 1859 – 8 July 1939), was an English physician, writer, Progressive intellectual and social reformer who studied human sexuality. He was co-author of the first medical textbook in English on homosexuality in 1897, and also published works on a variety of sexual practices and inclinations, including transgender psychology. He is credited with introducing the notions of narcissism and autoeroticism, later adopted by psychoanalysis. He served as president of the Galton Institute and, like many intellectuals of his era, supported eugenics. …. Ellis was a supporter of eugenics, in line with many others of that era. He served as vice-president to the Eugenics Education Society and wrote on the subject, among others, in The Task of Social Hygiene:
Eventually, it seems evident, a general system, whether private or public, whereby all personal facts, biological and mental, normal and morbid, are duly and systematically registered, must become inevitable if we are to have a real guide as to those persons who are most fit, or most unfit to carry on the race.
The superficially sympathetic man flings a coin to the beggar; the more deeply sympathetic man builds an almshouse for him so he need no longer beg; but perhaps the most radically sympathetic of all is the man who arranges that the beggar shall not be born.
Ellis resigned from his position of Fellow of the Eugenics Society over their stance on sterilization in January 1931.”
“In the Middle East, the theories of Fabian Society intellectual movement of early-20th-century Britain inspired the Ba’athist vision. The Middle East adaptation of Fabian socialism led the state to control big industry, transport, banks, internal and external trade. The state would direct the course of economic development, with the ultimate aim to provide a guaranteed minimum standard of living for all. Michel Aflaq, widely considered as the founder of the Ba’athist movement, was a Fabian socialist. Aflaq’s ideas, with those of Salah al-Din al-Bitar and Zaki al-Arsuzi, came to fruition in the Arab world in the form of dictatorial regimes in Iraq and Syria. Salāmah Mūsā of Egypt, another prominent champion of Arab Socialism, was a keen adherent of Fabian Society, and a member since 1909.”
