9:02 pm
a drone strike in eastern afghanistan. that strike followed as a bomb attack had cobble airport that was claimed by ice. okay? not killed at least 175 people, including 13 american service members. i am not going to talk about specific capabilities isis may of last, and in the strike they lost a planner and they lost a facilitator and they've got one wanted. and the fact that 2 of these individuals are no longer while longer walking on the face of the earth. that's a good thing, a good thing for the people who can stand. it's a good thing for our troops in our forces at that airfield. and i think i'm just going to leave it there while the u. s. is now one of the last country is still evacuating afghan civilians trying to flee after the taliban take over. the u. k now says it's final flight for civilians has left cobble. that means hundreds of afghans eligible to fly to the u. k. the will be left behind. now for afghans who didn't manage to leave or who decided to stay, life is also getting more challenging. as you can see, hundreds gathered outside
9:03 pm
a bank in cobble after failing to withdraw cash in many civil 7 say they hadn't been paid for months. unless it's almost 10 days that i've been waiting here to get my salary. i am an employee of the government. we have a patient at home, we have a problem. we can articulate salaries out a few days ago, the bank reopened, but closed again. give us our salaries so that we can be able to solve problems from mcbride has the latest. now from couple you do get a real sense that at the airport so that finally we are getting into the game of what has beta very long and often chaotic and matic process. this whole evacuation exercise. we show as signs of that coming with the taliban. now taking over a lot of the guarding duties from the us military, this is the process that began i friday evening with the us in the agreement with
9:04 pm
the taliban, withdrawing from some of the god post on the outer perimeter and withdrawing from some of that god duties inside the airport and those jobs now being taken over by the taliban themselves, the us reduce the size of their perimeter in preparation for the final withdrawal of the final boots on the ground. if you like, it is not meant that people are staying away from the apple. you do get a feeling that a lot of people by now will have given up hope of getting onto a flight. they will realize that it is fairly hopeless. but as flights are still going for others, it will probably make it even more desperate quest to try to get on to some of these last remaining slides. but we do know from the noise is of cross to go and go ahead and so on. though we are seeing few flights now arriving few flights, departing as we're getting closer to this deadline for the end of this evacuation. while glen tall is a former deputy national intelligence officer for trans national threats at the ca,
9:05 pm
he says, gathering intelligence in afghanistan can now still be done, but will be more difficult. there are multiple kinds of intelligence that are used to form assessments. it's called all source, all source intelligence collection, so you will have satellites. you will have a radio transmission intercept. you'll have traffic analysis. literally. you're studying the movement of vehicles and people. and then what we all think of, you have human sources. the advantage that human sources have is that they are humans are best at providing plans and intentions of your target the, the group or individual you are seeking to understand and learn about. and that will be harder to ok. now. access to ghana stand will be much, much, much more difficult. so if you can't get access,
9:06 pm
then you can't cultivate sources or interpret people's actions. but we can still be done. will be work more closely with to rely on the pakistani so that i would not say there has been a troubled relationship between united states and pakistan for decades. and i, i anticipate that the relations will deteriorate. this is what's happening. that gas stand is a triumph for the facts, any intelligent service, and the failure of our american and western hopes. so yes, the us and k and everybody else will, as they are able work with the pakistan is. but i don't expect that pakistan is will provide anything except what they think will help them, which is not the same as what we want. well, as i was saying earlier, british troops have now stopped evacuating afghans from cobble. but the head of the
9:07 pm
u. k is armed forces says hundreds of people entitled to resettlement in the u. k. will be left behind. i'm afraid, it's absolutely heartbreaking that we can't bring everybody out. and i think that points be made very strongly certain by the said section. others have lost them 10 days or so. personally, i've probably had over a 100 messages from different afghans who i know in my long association of the country. and many of those friends of mine would make it out. and for me, in another day, possibly my without me having a bit of a chair in my about sort of that on the and baba is in london with the latest on the british evacuation operation in afghanistan. they said earlier on via the head of the armed forces. the civilian evacuations were ending on saturday. but now we've got it confirmed from the ministry of defense. the last flights purely for afghan civilians to be evacuated out of couple and to the u. k. have actually taken
9:08 pm
off their maybe for the flights in the day, which do have a few down civilians together with british diplomatic stuff and british military personnel. so really, this is confirmation that things have moved to a new phase that they are continuing to both assist people beyond next tuesday who want to leave the country, but also to assist efforts in neighboring countries to welcome refugees. people fleeing in fear for their lives in places like iran and pakistan on the british government. save it nearly 15000 people have been evacuated to the u. k. since mid august. but in the words of nick carter, the head of the armed forces they, they've done the a good job in the circumstances. well, there are some criticisms that more than a 1000 people who worked for the british on services are being left behind and
9:09 pm
questions about exactly how much assistance can be provided to them right now. while large numbers of afghans are still crossing now into neighboring pakistan, 20000 people pass through the chairman, spin bolduc, crossing on saturday alone. only those with pakistani residency or people needing medical treatment are currently being allowed in the u. n. refugee agencies won't half a 1000000, may flee as kind of stone in the coming months. or some of them debate is at the pakistan, afghanistan border with the something on buckets on southern border with a gun to san thousands of people in the last 24 hours have tried to crossover. we're hearing reports that a lot of people from the northern parts of abundance on because they cannot enter pockets on from the north. are moving to words kandahar trying to cross the spin bull the crossing and seek refuge in progress bond or take their onward journey from pockets on you have to bear in mind that it is a lot of people who are coming from problems is as far north as like the trying to
9:10 pm
come to words this border crossing and trying to end to progress on many of these people we're being told are the has are as the ethnic minority which is coming to attack various on various occasions in they've gone to sun like sunny it's already on the other hand, say they're allowing people to come in. if they have valid paperwork, they can apply for a visa and get a visa from their functional embassy in couple. besides that, they're not going to allow people to enter pockets on. we've been seeing desperate scenes on the border here in the north as well, where people are pleading with the box. any officials with the paperwork trying to come and enter back on, on humanitarian grounds, trying to seek medical help, trying to visit families. because you have to remember that on both sides of the divide, there are people who have tribal and ethnic ties. and they say that the deteriorating security situation in the gun son is cause for concern. and many just want to leave . hardin lang is vice president for programs and policy with refugees international
9:11 pm
. and he says, most of the african refugees will hope to settle in pakistan or iran. the majority of that $500000.00 within the pending to pakistan or something they had to pocket on as the 1st quarter called and then or wrong is the 2nd country likely to host the most with a running pocket on host close to 2200000 of the 2.5, we are african refugees who are currently out there. so we anticipate that they will be the countries who received the most. the concern here right now is that, is that pakistan and wanna largely been there as close to african refugees. and we can see in places where major border crossings exist, that flows are already beginning to develop. and there's blockages at those cross points as people try to get across. and so i think we're in for a very difficult couple of weeks and months ahead. when the refugee is actually cross, when they're allowed to actually cross into something like august on, there's like marcus, on what we want to see, or basic reception will be granted refugee status. and they will be given access to
9:12 pm
services, the right to work the right to get education right to get health care. so the basic necessities of life. now that's going to be definitely a challenge in some of these countries. some of signed the refugee convention are bound by law to national to do so. others have not. the key thing is going to be assistance going to those countries from western donors and other large donors, to make sure that they can help share the responsibility for protecting these folks . in addition, it will be important that refugees can be resettled out of focused on iran, 2 countries in europe and the united states. so they can do their furniture on are thousands of afghans who've been living in india. fears are demanding that the asylum claims be fast. tracked, but the numbers are set to grow as the indian government onto the new visa category for people who are fleeing the taliban. probably mitchell reports now from new delhi, the of gone restaurant and the rumor of freshly baked traditional bread had
