ah robin, this is out there in life and death coming up in the next half hour, trying to hit sound at a see a report in the cave in 1900 pandemic saying the american investigation is driven by politics and not science. football gere, cuts ties with morocco, blaming hostile actions about says the move is unjustified and the legal battles are indigenous people in brazil and what is the mean for other tribes and that that's true. let me look into the private western powers. a rushing to slam their citizens unbundle black guns from cobbler airport britain science lead every hour up to the august 31st deadlines, a foreign troop withdrawal front says its mission. they finish as early as thursday on tuesday. us present, joe biden refused request by g 7 eyes for an extension to that deadline. insisting
5:02 pm
that forces must pull out to prevent risk of attacks. the taliban take over the problem to the world bang to freeze its age payments. i've got a son. it says the arm groups, new position will impact development, especially for women. the well food program says a combination of drought conflicts and the coven. 19 pandemic means millions of africans could soon say salvation. if global leaders don't act quickly. well, we have several correspondence covering these developments. our white house correspondent can be how kit in washington d. c. she'll have more on the pressure that bite and is facing that he barba is in london. will bring us the latest on the u. kay's evacuation efforts in that of the european counterparts. but 1st let's go to charles stratford, who's in the afghan capital and charles, you know, we have been focusing on this deadline. the 8, the time is ticking away, tension is increasing and it doesn't look like it's going to get any better for those people who really want to get out of the country. know if anything,
5:03 pm
for many of them it's going to get a lot worse. certainly the evidence that we've seen or team of ours have seen outside the airport today. they went to the eastern gate and sorry they went to the southern gate. let's be precise here and what they witness was scenes of also chaos. they describe tyler bond having to fire their weapons in the air to keep the crowd back. they were using chair gas as well, a water hose. despite these comments be made by the americans that the thought about are actually cooperating very well with them thus far. in trying to keep the crowds back from the board, it shows you how difficult that mission is. it's all about yesterday. let's not forget said that they were going to stop people from going to the airport. we now know that they set up a check point on the northern gate, around 5 kilometers back from that gate. in fact, this was the area where we saw all those huge crowds in the last few days and the
5:04 pm
incidents of violence down in that area. now it's all about have taken control of a check point 5 was just back and then not allowing anyone through that checkpoint without the requisites either a foreign passport, a visa or some sort of official invitation. and it's a similar scenario. the eastern gates as well, a checkpoint set up there. so it's all about seemingly sticking to their words in trying to keep people back from that area. but certainly on the southern gate is our team. so earlier today's proving to be a very difficult challenge indeed because it's all about trying to juggle quite a few balls. and the one of them is how to finance that potential government. when you have independent agencies like the international monetary fund and the world bank saying, you know, we're going to hold funds for the moment until we know exactly what your policies as a government that's right. let's not forget,
5:05 pm
this country was a terrible financial economic crisis way before this crises started. it's been a dismal state of affairs for years now. round 50 percent of the population living under the poverty line. and now these lines coming from western institutions and governments, as you say from the i m f, from the world bank, refusing any more money for the time being because of what they say, all the human rights abuses, the fears that they have about the child ban coming to power and of course, $99.00 and a half $1000000000.00 seen being held us banks also, of course use the people here that are going to suffer is one thing to tell about trying to rule. and they're very canes or c, legitimized themselves on the international stage. but it's the people here who are suffering the most and when you talk to them, many of them use the words betrayal, and suffering what they describe as collective punishment. the crimes that they did
5:06 pm
not commit for the update. thanks so much jer, charles struck their force in cobble. well, germany has pledged to help us gans who were quit its forces to leave beyond the deadline at the end of this month. but earlier the u. k. foreign secretary dominic rob said that it's al, it will continue right up to the last minutes of august the 31st. let's get more on this one of the bob who's in our london broadcast center and the team really the u . k. foreign minister obviously saying it's going to go right down to the wire. the nail biting starts for the many thousands of people still waiting to get onto about you ation flights. it certainly is a very terrifying time right now you're, you're correct. dominic robin, the foreign secretary in the u. k said, but he doesn't know how many people will be left behind out of thousands who are on lists, for example, repatriation lists for people who work with british forces. the british media are
5:07 pm
quoting defense sources are saying there are 2000 interpreters and other african individuals who worked with u. k. troops still waiting to be evacuated and that's on top of an unspecified number of so called special cases, including human rights activists. will dominate, rob says that it all depends on how many people will manage to evacuate on those royal air force planes in the coming days, but also on the time window available. because what you referenced with mr. rob saying that it will go right up to next tuesday. he's talking about the, the flights in general. but he specified that it's still up to the military to say how long they need to get troops and equipment out. and then countries will need to work backwards. so some countries are admitting that there are only a matter of a few days left rather than in next week. poland had stopped all a bit of occupation flights as of wednesday starting safety fears the french
5:08 pm
government hinting they could end their flights on thursday in germany that were reports in the national broadcast that the government was considering wednesday as it cut off dates for actual flights for civilians getting out, i'm going to merkel address parliament and did not specify anything like that, but she didn't assist that her country would do everything practically possible between now and next week to get as many people out as possible. is that the premiums are we will continue the evacuation operation for as long as possible in order to also make it possible for our guns who worked with us for security freedom, the rule of law development to leave the country. so angular marco has been saying the next tuesday must not be the end of efforts by the international community to facilitate people who need to get out of africa. and so on doing so. she's talked about intent discussions going on with taliban officials in terms of allowing
5:09 pm
flights to resume from a civilian operated airport. and she's also called for greater help for people in afghanistan, humanitarian assistance, but also more support for the neighboring countries, such as iran and pakistan in terms of receiving refugees. the baba, thanks very much for the update that speak to our white house correspondent kimberly house get jose, you know, from washington d. c. and kimberly we need the pressure has never really been off the united states these past 2 decades. but none also is the focus than this last, you might say 14 days, and certainly now as the clock ticks away on president biden pressure at home and abroad. that's right, and well the us felt the pressure as the u. s. president spoke with g 7 leaders just yesterday today. much of that pressure that is growing on this white house is
5:10 pm
coming from the u. s. congress. and it's not just the expected republican critics, but members of the president's own democratic party. in fact, there was one prominent democrat as well as a republican that made a secret overnight trip to afghanistan in order to, as they say, conduct oversight on the administration and this evacuation, which they've been sharply critical out, been arguing that the white house ignore the intelligence and that this has been nothing short of a debacle. they argue that american as well as potentially african lives, could be lost as a result of this very rushed evacuation. and they continue to argue that there should be an extension. now i can tell you that the white house has been sharply critical of these 2 members of congress saying that this was reckless. that what they did was take a seat away from somebody who is looking to be evacuated, may not be able to now, but again, they argue that there is
5:11 pm
a necessity of congress to conduct oversight on the executive branch, the white house. and as a result, given the fact that they believe that this was not conducted properly, they want to conduct their own investigation in order to ensure this type of thing never happens again. but as for the deadline, the white house sticking to the end of the month, august 31st. even as these members of congress increasingly argue that that deadline should be extended. kimberly, he'll get thanks very much. all white house correspondent that tens of thousands vascos displaced by the recent fighting between the government and the taliban has still been given proper shelters. now that task will likely fall to the taliban. as robert bride reports from cobble they came here to escape the horrors of war, but now the fighting is largely done. the future does not look any less bleak. this 110 to shed by 4 families from afghanistan's northern province of to have like

hulu has it right, wants to take his family of 9 back to their home. but he doesn't know if the house he is still paying rent on his even standing vehicle. them will be more normal. that was we don't have any money left to go back and set up again in our own. if the government can look after us, that's better. right now that government doesn't exist yet. when it does, it will be up to the taliban to provide support and tackle the many other crises facing us kind of down. robert bride al jazeera couple will still had his knowledge, is there a south africa ended up with the world, the highest unemployment rate and why recovery remains that distance prospect also talks that relationship, we look at how organized crime groups of 10 remaining into europe's dumping grounds . to stay with a fair amount of ah
