1:00 am
now more than ever, the world needs w h. making a healthy a world for you. everyone. ah . the chaos at the airport but a semblance of normality on the streets of combo. we look at the transition in afghanistan under the taliban. ah, no, i'm sorry. i'm in london, you're watching al jazeera coming up in the program. strong winds back to the northeast and us coastline as tropical storm on remake land full bringing lashing rain and the risk of flooding and power outages. centuries old festival goes ahead,
1:01 am
ensure lying and despite rising cova death locked down mean. so crowd conservation is the writing safe. garrity on mountain channels from the growing threat of illegal logging. ah, it's been a week since the afghan capital combo fell to the taliban, and tens of thousands of people is still scrambling to board evacuation flights from the fifty's airport. the at least 20 people are reported to have been killed in the chaos that cobble appleton recent days. almost 6000 us and foreign troops of guarding the field. and there is increasing concern about security threads. taliban fighters have been manning checkpoints, and blocking people without documents from entering the airport. meanwhile,
1:02 am
the us says almost 28000 people, including afghans, americans, and all the nationals have been flown out. that many are still stranded 18 us commercial airlines of in order to provide planes help speed up evacuation efforts . the aircraft won't go to cobble, but will instead transport afghans you've already been flown out to that final destinations or us president joe biden has addressed his nation as he faces more pressure over the evacuation efforts and called, but he again defended the withdraw timeline. so for the tale bond has not taken action against us forces so far they have by and large followed through what they said in terms of allowing americans to pass through in the like, i'm sure they don't control all the forces. it's a rag tag force, and so we'll see. we'll see whether or not what they say turns out to be true. but the bottom line is this folks look at the end of the day. if we didn't
1:03 am
leave afghanistan now, when do we leave? another 10 years, another 5 years years. i'm not about to send your son or your daughter to fight napkins to be to fill a vouch in washington filled with we hear any more from the president, tom, at the efforts to expedite the evacuation of vulnerable afghans. yeah, i mean, he spoke about 2 different aspects of this festival that he said, the big priority was getting americans and legal permanent residents out. that's the main focus of the americans. but he was also talking about getting those refugees are getting those out who have worked with the americans over the years. we understand that over the last 30 hours, they've evacuated some 11000. that's a mixture of americans and refugees. because we've seen obviously those, those scenes at the airport with so many people, a clamoring not just to get on planes,
1:04 am
but to get inside the airport. he said that what's gonna happen is he is actually in vote, an emergency actor and emergency law which compels us airlines to effectively land their planes to help transport these refugees out. no, he said it was voluntary. some commentators have described it as compulsory, but basically it says to the likes of american airlines and united airlines and delta and hawaii. look guys, just stop what you're doing and help us out. send us some of your planes, send us some of your stuff and let's get these people out. now these planes will not go to afghanistan. they will go to the bases where these refugees being taken to be processed. places like doha, like germany, like write a number of us basis. and then the idea is that they will bring them eventually to the united states once they secure those special immigrant pieces. so that's the plot. and then when they get here, the plan is for the to be a large processing site setup and dulles airport, which is the main international airport just outside here in washington,
1:05 am
d. c. and then on there, they will go to various places including a large 10 city which is currently being set up somewhere in new jersey. but as i say, the main focus for the americans is to get their own people out in the problem that they've got is they don't actually know how many americans in afghanistan, many of them register when they arrive, but then they have failed to de registered when they left and many have also been told not to go anywhere near the airport because of that threats to the safety of those people trying to get into the ford. although president biden has said that the taliban are giving safe passage to americans and to those who want to leave, who worked with the americans, the accounts on the ground site that is anything but the case. marian, thank you from washington. phil laval taliban is trying to form a new government with hopes of a possible breakthrough in the coming week. group senior leaders are in talks with their commanders, former government figures and religious scholars. charlotte ballad has more

1:07 am
very frankly, i've been telling them over and over and they do understand they know how to bring security. they are lacking totally when it comes to finances. and as far as having educated people that can come by and run the country. part of the us telephone agreement, signed last year, was at the us will continue to provide funding to ask on a stone during and after it's withdrawal. but since the tele bonds take over the us has for, is it more than $9000000000.00 and asked central bank reserves. and the international monetary fund says, as going to son can no longer access, it's lending the consequences. severe. and i have talked to the leadership of taliban over and over actually every night, almost the hour of the morning. you never touch in any sunshine. look at it. the rich, the powerful will survive. it's the common people that it's going to get hurt. off
1:08 am

1:09 am
what i've done. it's done over a 100 passengers, civilians, mainly students were on board this flight from travel early on sunday. it's not arrived here at the base. are they on board many students. so i thought i have said that the government had been able to evacuate several 100 afghans in total. this has been described as one of the largest humanitarian earliest operations in the, in the history more than 7000 blown out in recent days. the 1st, the 1st on the fact that military is when it's allies in the us airport here. i don't know, they had been huge because the influx of refugees coming in has been far greater than the capacity to house them. there was issues with where they were, the air conditioning and the really harsh from are here for you. that's and so
1:10 am
point that has somewhat been resolved with some of the authorities here from the american. i think i've been able to reno case several 100 of these up to cation roughly 15 minutes from where we are standing. there was another plane expected to arrive a property military one that was arrived again on monday, having more refugees has been held by the national communities for it, for us and ensuring the safe passage of these refugees is logistical nightmare is one official described to me in the company i'm baset are and i've got a son has himself been present physically from a b one for you to ensure a safe passage way for those who have chosen to live up to one couple ah,
