What is the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB)?

The NTSB is an independent U.S. federal agency responsible for investigating and determining the probable cause of every U.S. civil aviation accident. The NTSB also investigates significant accidents involving other modes of transportation, including highways, railroads, marine and pipeline.

How are NTSB investigators trained?

The NTSB has its own training facility in suburban Washington. Its curriculum is designed to train investigators who can produce, the agency says, “independent, objective, and technically advanced accident investigations that will enhance the safety of all modes of transportation.”

Does the NTSB investigate foreign accidents?

The NTSB’s Aviation Go Teams respond only to accidents that occur on U.S. territory or in international waters. Elsewhere, the investigator is the government in whose territory the accident occurs, usually assisted by a U.S. “accredited representative” from the NTSB’s staff of investigators if a U.S. carrier or U.S. manufactured plane is involved.

Are there NTSBs in other countries?

Several countries, among them Australia, Canada and the Netherlands, have established their own NTSBs. The formation of some foreign NTSBs has been inspired by the U.S. agency.

Other major NTSB investigations?

NTSB investigators have participated in a variety of national and international investigations, including the disappearance in 2014 of a Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. Recently, the NTSB released a report about a California helicopter crash whose passengers included basketball legend Kobe Bryant and his daughter.

Pakistan said Friday four of its soldiers were killed when “terrorists” raided a security post in a remote northwestern district.

The overnight attack occurred in South Waziristan, near the border with Afghanistan, an army statement said.

Pakistani troops responded promptly and killed four assailants, it added.

No one immediately took responsibility for the attack.

The district is a known former stronghold of the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, an alliance of outlawed extremist groups. TTP is also known as the Pakistani Taliban.

Pakistani officials say sustained military-led operations in recent years have cleared Waziristan and surrounding districts of militants, aside from isolated pockets.

The security operations have killed thousands of militants and forced others to take refuge in volatile Afghan border districts.

The United Nations said in a recent report that TTP has regrouped in Afghanistan and gained strength.

The TTP has “overseen a reunification of splinter groups that took place in Afghanistan and was moderated by Al-Qaida,” according to the 27th U.N. Analytical and Monitoring Team report of Feb. 3.

“One member state reported that TTP was responsible for more than 100 cross-border attacks between July and October 2020,” it said.
