Stock rout deepens, oil tanks to 12-year low

Markets around the world entered a selloff on Thursday, with major indices falling hundreds of points and oil dipping below the $27 mark. Plus, NATO announced plans to send forces to the Mediterranean Sea to crack down on human smugglers who are exacerbating the growing refugee crisis. Ameera David has all of the details.

Then, Edward Harrison again joins from Berlin, Germany, with the latest on the state of European markets and the continued downward trend of central bank interest rates. Afterwards, Bianca Facchinei reports from the historic Berlin Tempelhof Airport, which is now being used to house hundreds of refugees.

Max Wolff, chief economist at Manhattan Venture Partners, then offers his insights on the global market rout, particularly with regard to Japan’s recent downturn. And finally, in The Big Deal, RT’s Manuel Rapalo takes a look at the Flint water crisis, which today was the focus of a congressional hearing.
