10:02 am
a 3rd day of emergency talks in the hall between the afghan government and the taliban ended in deadlock. and as the taller bomb presses its advance, the u. s. and u. k. are dispatching more than 3 and a half 1000 troops to cobble to help with the evacuation of embassy staff and others. let's speak now to rob mcbride, who is live in cobble force. so rob 1st will tell us more about those operations in kandahar and laska go. that's right. from the government's point of view this friday morning, a quickly deteriorating situation with the apparent loss of both candor and alaska. now these are the 2 most important cities in the south kandahar in particular. being based in kandahar province is really almost like a fortress while much of kandahar province was being taken back by the taliban. the government has been committed to defending at all costs. kandahar had some of the
10:03 am
better military units there was able to call and asked support to in fact, including us as strikes as a way of trying to keep the taliban at bay. but it seems that overnight said that they breached the defenses of the city. we got increasing reports about fighting in the center of the city claims by the taliban that they taken the governor's resident's. the police had quoted indeed, backed up by video showing apparent to taliban fighters walking around the residence. we got confirmation that the governor and his officials had had left and also the menu, the military units that had pulled back into what is a very big military base at the side of kandahar. so, but if it's, if the remains to be lost by the government, if it cannot re take this, then that is a very big blow. but he joined a number of other places during the night to the full them to fell during the night . this is a very major city over in the west of that had been under siege. i neighboring province. that bad guess also fell. that's
10:04 am
a small province. but with that it means that all of the west of the country has now basically gone to the taliban. and if these losses are confirmed and sustained that they don't call wind back, laska got all, all kinds of her in the south, then the south to it would seem, well for the moments at least is lost to the government. and what, let me throw another day much you while, while, while away here, low god, that is another province. now that province is borders cobble to the south. it's very close to here. we know from reports reaching here that there is fierce fighting going on around the governance residence in the provincial capital of lau god. that is just 70 kilometers away. so with each hour it seems almost that fighting gets closer to cobble itself. and a lot of people will be wondering, rub, what is the afghan government doing a battle? this, how do they plan to respond? you get the sense at times that the government here is to some extent reeling under
10:05 am
the ferocity the, the speed with which all of this has happened with all of these prevention. capitals falling there are there is talk constantly from the government about counter attack that has plans. it will put plans into place. we hear this from the north where basically the government has lost most of its strongholds there. apart from research that is a very strong outpost. but is basically the last outpost of the government that the keep we keep hearing about counter attacks. but in other provinces what you're left now, it seems all sort of remnants that yes, there are some of the special units the commando unit to a still committed to fighting. but they are frankly exhausted. it seems that with trying to stem the advance of the taliban other units we've heard about have simply given up the weapons or in other areas we u. k. reports about units are changing sides. the taliban keeps broadcasting the messages it advances that come and join us brothers. we're on the ascendancy and
10:06 am
you have to look at the picture and say it's difficult to contradict them on that. they do seem to have built up this momentum and just quickly when they make these advances, of course they are gaining. if they're not just more personnel, maybe people switching sides or factions and military units who now plates their religion to the taliban. but also vast amounts of material equipment vehicles. we see video coming to us from her rach, for example, in the west of the country that now fall into the taliban. there were reports that simply after days of the pints of days of trying to fight off the taliban, they simply gave up in the end. or they, the defense is collapsed very quickly. with the taliban taking over whole police stations full of police vehicles and all the rest which, which almost makes them to them mental and it's momentum of the surge, which seems more and more directed towards here in the center in couple thanks for
