2:03 pm
has now invited the aircraft manufacturer boeing to be part of the investigation france made the aircraft's engines and says it's too wants to be involved and the u.s. national transportation safety board says it's assigned a representative to the investigation there are reports the debris has been bulldozed into a pile but one expert says the dead may provide answers there could be evidence with literally within the bodies of the victims there could point to whether or not for example an explosion took place inside or outside of the air ukraine's president has laid flowers at a makeshift memorial at the airport where the plane was expected to land at least one vigil is being held in toronto in canada many of those who died had dual nationalities he was coming back home from a trip you want to see his mother on holidays and an old past where he will turn britain by. some
2:04 pm
a furious that iran may have been involved in the crash others are waiting to find out when the bodies of their loved ones might return home rob matheson al-jazeera. well dosage of our joins us now live from tehran hi there door so so iran was adamant as it said in the press conference it wasn't a missile but it was plenty else in the press conference what was said. oh yes this was a press conference that was given by the head over on civil aviation authorities and the man in charge of that said that it was actually impossible for this plane to have been struck by any kind of missile or a projectile device because the plane was on fire for over a minute and 30 seconds in the air before it crashed and that means according to the iranian calculations that it wasn't struck by anything that there was actually they believe there was a technical malfunction of this plane it took off. 6 minutes after it took off it
2:05 pm
crashed so the iranians are now looking into this entire incident the iranian president has. expressed his condolences to the families victims we're also hearing that. are. people coming from the united states france and canada to help with the nation authorities in iran are along with their investigation we also know that ukrainian officials are already on the ground in the capital here on friday helping with this investigation according to the head of the civil aviation authority 2 black boxes have been retrieved but they are very badly damaged so it's not clear what they will be able to find from those devices at this point but for now the iranians are saying it's very important that the community doesn't make accusations or come to conclusions and he see man or the investigation is still just starting there's been a special committee that's been formed. by the government and the president himself
2:06 pm
has called for an investigation so this committee will need at least 6 months to one year to try and determine what actually happened to this flight so a sense of our joining us there from tehran with the very latest. well after the killing of iran's top commander custom salon the last friday the u.s. house of representatives has boasted to limit president donald trump's ability to engage in further military action against iran al jazeera is highly jocasta reports now from washington. house democrats say president trump's order to kill iranian general customs with a mani was a reckless move done without the consultation of congress it is unprecedented the level at which this administration is seeking to obscure the facts from the congress of the american people thursday's vote on the house floor is meant to deliver a rebuke to the president that the democratic led chamber has little confidence in trump's military decision making toward iran despite his justifications we caught
2:07 pm
a total monster and we took them out and that should have happened a long time ago. we did it because they were looking to blow up our embassy we also did it for other reasons that were very obvious somebody died one of our military people died people were badly wounded just a week before and we did it and we had a shot at him and i took it and that shot was pinpoint accurate and that was the end of a monster the war powers resolution passed in the house on thursday directs the president to terminate the use of u.s. forces in iran without congressional approval but how much power this measure carries is unclear it is a non-binding resolution which under normal circumstances means it does not carry the force of law but house speaker nancy pelosi says the war powers act is a special circumstance that gives the resolution legality that it does not have to be signed by the president of the united states the congress of the united states
2:08 pm
and this full power of full voice can speak a new 9 that way about what the war powers act should look like and that should count for something house republicans called a vote a partisan distraction this resolution has as much force of law as a new year's resolution this resolution is not safeguarding our constitution but attacking our constitution by attempting to. best a duly elected president of his commander in chief powers a similar resolution is pending in the u.s. senate where at least 2 republicans have said they will support the measure to curb iran war powers but whether the resolutions will have that effect or will simply be ignored by the president is a question that may be decided in the courts. castro al-jazeera washington yes president calling on european nations to completely abandon the nuclear deal
2:09 pm
with iran foreign ministers are gathering to hold an emergency meeting in brussels france is calling on all sides to come back to the table its warning they're on is now on course to develop a nuclear weapon within the next 2 years so he'll size of policy fellow of the european leadership network where his focus is on the iran nuclear agreement and he explains why e.u. leaders seem to have high hopes for saving the deal as opposed to the u.s. . i think the europeans are wedded to it because it proved to work unfortunately the united states thought differently about whether or not this was an agreement that they could stand by under the trumpet administration but for europeans it represents not only a regional security agreement that will absolutely help bring stability to the region and hide because at that point in time after the deal was reached we saw far less provocative iran than we are right now but moreover this is the core to european security let's not forget that the middle east is on europe's door stuff
2:10 pm
and thus preserving the agreement and the entire verification regime which took over a decade to negotiate is something that europe is unwilling to let go of my thinking you know obviously there was a you know around the time that trump left to do you'll shut off diplomacy by europeans to see if we could get a more 'd for more agreement where we were able to include say missiles or other poor for all issues but their reality is at the end of the day the most imminent issue at the time that this agreement was reached was the nuclear question and the idea was over time iran would socialize itself to the international system as a member of in good standing in the international community and thus build the competence with historic. adversaries like the united states to be able to speak in good faith on topics like missiles which they refused to include in the original agreement. in

2:12 pm
concerns there should be no judicial review the court has said that you know these are matters of fundamental freedom and liberty and the court will subject every executive action in order to a judicial review they have said that the internet is protected under the constitution as the freedom of speech and expression and therefore any restriction of prohibition on internet will have to meet the test of constitution to make sure that it is the executive action proportional to the problem that it poses right now what the way the state had conducted itself is that those orders were not published those orders were not even placed before the court. they have immediately published all orders but deigning to internet restriction as well as movement restriction those orders must. why is the state taking this measure and is this is this required is this excessive in fact the court has gone so far as to say that
2:13 pm
