1:02 am
gunfire rang out near the international airport earlier. wrong witnesses said the taliban was firing to disperse people, gathering now hoping to get only like ation flight crowds outside the airport have reportedly been officer increase and taliban checkpoints near by. the group is now escorting some afghans into the airport. american forces of reported be given some of their gone posts on the outskirts of the complex to the taliban. well, united states has killed what it describes as to high profile ice l. k targets. and a drone strike in afghanistan. the pentagon says one of the armed groups planners, and a facilitator or both killed in the strikes in the eastern province of manga hom, another. i feel k member was injured. the strike comes 2 days after i so claim responsibility for the suicide bombing cobbles, airport president joe biden says the strikes won't be his last response.
1:03 am
well, asked about the impact of the strikes, the pentagon, spokespersons, that the threats from i still remains high. they have to high profile planners or facility 11 plan i want to fill there that are no longer on their muster role. so they have lost some capability to plan and to conduct missions. but barbara make no mistake. nobody's writing this off and saying, well, we got them. so we don't have to worry about isis k anymore. not the case. as i said earlier, that the threat stream is still active, still dynamic. we're still laser focused on that and forced protection. and we are thinking for a minute that what happened yesterday gets us in the clear, not a minute, but do we believe that we hit valid targets, bad guys who can do bad things and can plan bad missions? absolutely. and why do we think that that will have some impact on their ability
1:04 am
going forward? absolutely. get more from gabriel, as on to his in washington. any more details or information about the possibility of another attack on campbell airport? the u. s. is not saying what sort of details or intelligence they have other than to say that they think it is very likely with the next 24 to 36 hours. but they're not specifying exactly what the threats are. other than to generally say that there is very active threats and very credible threats against us military personnel and any innocent civilians outside the airport. it's very unusual for the president united states to basically say that the, to verbalize to the american people, that an attack is potentially eminent against us interests. but that's exactly what joe biden did in this statement that he released late on saturday here in the u. s
1:05 am
. washington basically saying exactly that it just shows you how delicate and fragile and quite frankly dangerous. the situation is there and how seriously the white house is looking at it. also saying, joe biden, and that statement also saying that the air strike from an unmanned drone against the 2 they killed the 2. i saw k members would not be the last and the u. s. would be doing more of that in the future, but did not specify of course when or how that would take place. but clearly the white house is worried because these are, we didn't turn to the final days. now. coming up to this august 35th deadline, it's clearly a very dangerous moment. very dangerous moment, and in issuing this warning about some sort of attack being eminent, the presumably trying to manage expectations and to also issue
1:06 am
a warning to, to people incorrigible itself. but gave, what could it mean for the president, if there were to be further american casualties, it would make his situation even more difficult. and he knows that there's a reason why previous presidents have not completely pulled out of afghanistan because it's dangerous. and it means that it could, could mean the deaths of american service members as we just saw in the last 24 hours, 48 hours. i should say, that is why this decision was very difficult. and they knew that this could be a possibility. and they know that it could be a possibility that with another attack at or near the airport, that not only more innocent afghans could be killed, but also us service members. listen, the decision to pull out of afghanistan was one that most of the american public
1:07 am
agree with, according to, to polling here in the united states. but how it's been done and the lives that are being lost is clearly having an effect on the american psychic. if you will, on how this is being done, and if there's another attack and more u. s. service personnel are killed or injured. that will certainly make this even more difficult here in the final days. thank you very much. gabriel, arizona in washington. well, as those evacuation efforts continue, hundreds of afghans still inside the country marched outside the bank and campbell with long lines forming cash machines. their protest is outside new combo bank. included many government employees demanding their salaries. they say they haven't been paid for at least 3 to 6 months. ags reopen 3 days ago, but many people were unable to access them money, even when functioning a gm's of limited cash withdrawals to about $200.00 every 24 hours. while brian has
1:08 am
the latest now from the afghan capital a cobble international airport, it's a real sense that we're now getting into the end game of this very long and often chaotic and traumatic evacuation process. the sure side of that has come with the taliban now taking over some of the guarding duties from the us military, they reduce that perimeter in preparation for their final departure for the final american boots to be off the ground. we have seen the taliban fighters take over god post on the perimeter and actually inside the airport itself. the evidence end of this evacuation though, has not stopped, says still crowds of people around the perimeter trying to get on some of the last flights you do get a feeling that a lot of people will have given up hope by now i'd have not going back to the airport, especially with warnings of possibly more attacks. for others,
1:09 am
though at the imminent ending of this whole process has probably made it added to the desperation of trying to get on one of the last remaining flights. but there are relatively few left. now as we see, few of flights arriving and taking off. meanwhile, in the city of cobble itself, there is a mixed picture here at the city, goes back to work after what for many has been the weekend here in afghanistan, businesses have likely reopened. some ministries have reopened as they did last week, but other ministries have remained close. and crucially for many people here again, the banks are close. the banking sector here has been a real problem ever since the fall of the government and the take over by the taliban. they some financial services open to briefly just over a week ago you could the cash machines opened, but with very tight limits, all the amount of money people could take out. finally, they opened a few days ago, but now they were meant to reopen saturday,
1:10 am
but they have remain closed. and so people have not been able to get access to their funds, access to salaries. in some cases, people are complaining, they haven't been paid for months. it has led to angry scenes outside many banks, protests and it is a bad, bad sign for the country. and this new taliban government moving forward. the french present emanuel microns has preliminary talks of being held with the taliban in the hope of facilitating further evacuations. and humanitarian operations of the foreign forces leave new some upon them and the we are currently having discussions which are very fragile on the preliminary. that is why i am being very comfortable in my answer. but yet, discussions have begun with the taliban on the issues of humanitarian operations and the ability to protect reports off guns, water, 3 guns. and yes, we are working alongside. we gotta to allow this operation to proceed. meanwhile, france and italy have joined the number of european countries that have now
1:11 am
completed their evacuation missions. us says it's weighted at least 117000 people so far, most of them afghan nationals as well as more than 5000 americans on the final u. k. military flight is now supportive combo with all military and diplomatic personnel evacuated, hundreds of afghans eligible to fly to the u. k. have been left behind, and the mother has warm evacuation campaign. her name is however even english, and she's just into the world full of hope and uncertainty. her african parents were evacuated from couple to dubai where they caught a turkish airlines flight to the u. k. helped by the cabin crew, her mom so man had to give birth on board as have arrived, the british military confirmed it was ending its flights carrying civilians. frances, on the same, shakira and afghan actress living in france, managed to get her mother and brother out of afghanistan at the last minute. as in
1:12 am
so many cases it involved days of frantic phone calls to people on the ground at the airport. what they do, does my name my never, i've rediscovered the smell of my mother and it's something that i'd forgotten. my mother's tears reminded me of the tea she shed when i left half dentist on. it was really moving a lot of emotions today. shabbier and afghan journalist filmed himself as he and 9 close relatives waited to get onto one of the final evacuation flights. he's now in spain, spending the night and day and the air force. and the good was one of the worst experiences i have ever had. i never was forced to spend the night with my family and in an open place like that with thousands of people, not in dev last the day. so for fun on shapiro and his family and now seeking asylum. but the british government admits up to 1100 afghans,
1:13 am
eligible to be re settled in the u. k. mainly because they worked with british troops, a being left behind. the head of the u. k. armed forces said it's heartbreaking personally. i've probably had over a 100 messages from different afghans who i know in my long association with the country and many of those friends of mine, what make it out? well, there's a lot at this small organization near london, this grumbling to help people still trying to get out of afghanistan. they found, as it's clear, there are many still in danger. the beat is government should be needed in order to save the life. out of thousands of people been working for the past 20 supporting they need to mission. as these afghan civilians arrived in rome, a nato representative said, his team had done everything they could and satisfied because we have left
1:14 am
a few behind which we are not abandoning but which we will try our best to take back home as the sunset on the military evacuations. the question now is, how many more people who fear for their lives will be able to leave afghan? it's done. and how nadine baba al jazeera, of course, cobble and force has one way out of the country. and then large numbers of africans have been crossing into neighboring pockets down, but only those with focus on residents, you're traveling from medical treatment to currently being allowed in at least 12000 people pass through the chairman spill bowl spin bolduc crossing on fast today. august on is denied, there's been a significant movement of refugees. national security adviser says the country already has more than 3000000 african refugees and cannot allow more. and some have been delayed is near to come on the pockets on afghan border. when buckets on southern borders,

1:16 am
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 bible and s ties. and they say that the deteriorating security situation in afghanistan is cause for concern, and many just want to leave. so early we spoke to matthew salt marsh from the united nations rushing g agency of the you and hcr. and he says that countries neighboring afghanistan are going to be more help as people continue to flee the international community, the, you and agencies have gathered together and they do have a contingency plan for the event reality of up to half a 1000000 people going into neighboring countries, but that is very much a worst case scenario prediction. but in the case of large movements, of course, countries like pakistan will need significant international support. they obviously have the support of the united nations and years. but there will need to be
1:17 am
significant global support. and there was a meeting on friday where an appeal was made for $300000000.00 for those countries that would be hosting a new african refugees in the event reality of significant flows from afghanistan. he was out there a life online and much more than i had all the thousands march through washington d. c, against efforts by some state to make it harder for people to mode in china or accuses the united states of picking political manipulation over signs of white house when he sits, reports on the origins of cause. and i hello, it's looking largely fine and dry with many parts of australia,
