a lot more on those stories of course in the news as the day progresses that's it for witness is next here on al-jazeera. the molding the magnet for tourists from around the globe the behind the beach risk landscape young man leading by groups in syria but i went east investigates on al-jazeera. so. so. so. who in this country. certainly didn't want to be this one but i just feel like. both afghanistan and sardar won't
. be. many consider this luxury hotel to be one of the safest spots in kabul but late thursday taliban gunmen stormed the serena who tells restaurant killing 9 people including prominent journalists sardar achmad his wife and 2 children all 4 shot point blank to the head afghan authorities say the 4 gunmen hid guns and ammunition in their shoes to evade security we are still waiting for for all those investigation to take place. where will i go how much is a what you know you cannot go wrong. i was for a moment. in the. machine when i would come out but
the list goes from. god would go to would most of them out. raising money is money that can become a. boon when you go to shrink post but it will be a journey that of most informative insulated they chosen they can even have bought as it shows. by the vegas i'll go to more of a hook on the graph my expose me going to good yes and then you. have me because in the washroom if i'm going to fuss because. tony is human other than good. i would be going to a lot of. this is sardar and these are things that i got his boss at the f.b.i.
let me have a few things from his desk he had this really weird cute love of pine cones one time he was like hold out your hand so i did any put a pine cone in my hand i think it was this one actually he was really into the free a.j. staff thing in cairo and we had a day here where we all went to the al jazeera bureau. that sort of missed it and so he came to my office and he had me take a picture of him holding this and it's like now like a widely used photo of him so i don't know i feel like trying to find out what happened to him is maybe would bring some closure is that i don't really know what else to do.
there are so many unanswered questions as per usual the taliban claimed responsibility but we think there's more to the story. so he was a well known and i think. if one knows him and when it deserves it and he deserves that definitely and he deserves that. me a new journalists so this is one responsibility we don't have guns on arms to go and fight with at the wrists our pen our camera our newspaper as our own guns so let's fight through death when. so let us work over this issue to follow that what happened with some of the worst case what happened within the investigation which the afghan security officer
in a certain manner. actually resulted in a normal for. an idea that i don't care and trying to move on past very. very small school the only people the crazy person to do it and it's it was a very good reasons all reason to do it which got us all great to hear over and over and. also that instant pomp and i have never been here in philly i've never been here you know a thing i hate this place. where nightmare happened. to me this is definitely amazing that such a p.h.p. hotel with 90 ports how it's possible a few tourists can get inside this plates everyone gets away with everything here
you can go in an attack a hotel and kill people and kill children and nothing happens. so now we're going to try to get answers from the ministry of interior because obviously. they're the ones that were 1st on the scene and should know more about who these people were and what happened and how it all was even allowed to happen with duping what was in one's findings well unfortunately one of the exact findings because we submitted everything the scene. and all of those proofs and evidence to the n.d.s. because they're responsible for the investigation of these complicated terrorist attacks and then to morning if we want a place like cyrano with more than mine t. courts can be counted and how did it happen how is that possible to do rather than the right person to every security person or in this who know the company or of the person or everyone or they were out and just to get the government doesn't hold us
every night accountable doesn't seem to keep going on they have their conference is people go still so this is just a staircase yes we've got a new security company and then that they're allowed to continue without paying and the story is the government would not be able to comment that when insider was killed some of the guys were saying courtney john this is afghanistan as if that makes it ok you know her and i think that we should never accept that just because you have suffered attacks over the years in that they continue that this never again but the world should know that we are here to price and it's not ok we shouldn't question love because it could lose the right to have you know it really is a for the people around the world. george w. are covering a lot of it because the most loved ones thong with us on this would call. for could
not them because of course i am mostly a. mum. mistress i discover the girl moment the lights all of this absorb those of us that only have joined with a yearning for joy without your who does it with. should i give an example yet it would be a great life like what well my personal time was your 1st but i love you most of you know well it's good to hear that i ask is up but not in the people who died for it worse but if you want to say it i was going to do it no i don't want to say it it's probably the whole personality is not ideologically stupid like it is a lot of things just because of blows labor but it's just used to how but. talking about my concerns for my family members when something happens 1st then comes the moment i make sure that everybody at home is far and then i go to judge to do my in the order to get it.
