6:09 pm
we were just, we were just hopeless, the seeing all these people have been evacuating from the same get. the taliban took over this area from the 0 units on saturday morning. we spoke with him earlier in the week and we were told that they were from the 03 from kandahar from the 02 in the east, and from the 01 in cobble they told us that they were here to create a buffer zone between the telephone and western forces and that in exchange, they would be evacuated. thousands of the militia and the families were prioritized for evacuation the taliban. quickly filling the void, interpreters in other us allies are angry. that militia members were flowing out well. they who helped foreign forces for years have been left behind. charlotte bellis al jazeera couple. while dozens of women have demonstrated outside the presidential palace and couple they're calling on the
6:10 pm
taliban leadership to protect women's re monthly card. read a society in which women are not active is a debt society. there it is. a taliban official recently promised there would be a place for women in afghanistan, governments, but not in the cabinet. was on the saw in the last 20 as we the women have taken part in all aspects of life, shoulder to shoulder with men. therefore, no one can eliminate us. we not only oscar is lima camera government, but also all the international community, especially women from other countries around the world to support us. while the color bond spokesman says, china has promised to keep its embassy enough gornstein open and to increase aid. the chinese government says at once to play a role in the reconstruction of afghanistan, but it hasn't given many details. katrina, you has more from being well, john is foreign ministry has posted a statement on its web side,
6:11 pm
confirming that the phone call took place in that statement. it was quite brief. it affirmed the friendship between the 2 countries and at wish the people of afghanistan. well, and going forward and rebuilding their country, but it was quite scans on details. this message by the taliban could be its way of putting a little bit of pressure on aging, perhaps to keep its promises. aging has said that it will play a role in the economic reconstruction of the country, but it's been quite vague as to how it tends to do that. but no doubt the baiting doesn't tend to play a role here because it does have some existing investments enough gone us on that. it probably wants to protect. it also has very extensive investments in neighboring pakistan. so it is looking at the economic potential of the country and the impact on the region at large. now china as a major player, was one of the 1st to recognise the taliban as a legitimate political force. we had tele bond lead up to gunny bar, actually visit china in late july, and he met with china's foreign minister one
6:12 pm
e and throughout this whole process throughout the keiko as well as this transition, china's embassy in cobbler has remained fully open and operational, no paging, has been very critical of the us say that it's hasty with the role was to blame for the chaos caused in the country. but at the same time, china has said that the u. s. should not just cut and run that. it has responsibilities in the country and should help contribute to its economic rebuilding as well. hunter, morehead, on the altar and his r, including struggling to dry out to be northeastern states of america. clean up after tropical storm. i'd sweep through claiming dozens of lives. i do not have any hope. i know why some families in india is a psalm state, are frustrated with the government and accused of failing them. no by stock of continues his trade for a calendar grand slam at the us open. joe will have all the details in sports.
6:13 pm
ah, so the us president joe biden is heading to the state of louisiana for 1st hand look at the damage wrought by hurricane ida. torrential rain brought widespread flooding and power was cut to a 1000000 people after the storm hit the u. s. gulf coast last weekend. it caused more flooding. as it moved to the northeast, new jersey, new york and pennsylvania are the worst head states. 45 people have been killed in the region. we have our white house correspondent, kimberly hallett standing by for us in washington dc. but 1st christians, salumi is joining us from elizabeth and new jersey to tell us what you're seeing. where, where you are kristin and what's the latest from their well, new jersey suffered the highest death toll from this weather event. it's now up to 25 people. 2 people were added today and 6 people are still missing. so those
6:14 pm
numbers could rise yet. i'm in the city of elizabeth new jersey where the governor is expected to be touring shortly because there's just so much damage here. a lot of the fatalities happened in this area. all of the holidays in new jersey were from flooding. and to give you a sense of just how strong the water was here, i want to show you behind me this vehicle. the water came up quickly here in new jersey, new york as well cause many by surprise. and you can see this vehicle is just lifted right up onto the gateway there all along the street. we're seeing people cleaning up after the storm. you can see all of the mattresses, furnitures, and things that have come out of people's basement. most of the flooding and damages in people's basements, people told me here that the water came up to their front door. however,
6:15 pm
and the water just, i'm going to try to cross the street here is beyond this area over here and right now i can't even see the water level and must i get right up next to the fence. it's fairly low, it's moving quickly. but that just shows you it's, it's a good ways down there that the water is now so very quickly, this water flooded the area and moved up. we know 600 people have had to leave their homes. there's an apartment complex that was evacuated. that's where a family of 4 was overcome in a, in a low level apartment by the water. and these are the kind of stories that we're hearing throughout the ne, today as officials continue to take stock of the extent of the damages and, and the loss of life. frankly, again, all of the loss of life from, from flooding,
6:16 pm
people either in their homes here in elizabeth or in new york, a lot of basement apartments, 11 fatalities occurred in new york city when the storm drains were overflowed and the streets backed up very quickly. and people who lived in basement apartments couldn't get out in time. just her risk stories. we're hearing about people who are trapped there are people also here in new jersey on road ways in vehicles that were washed away or people tried to get out of their vehicles and got into quickly moving water and were washed away as a result of the rising levels there, so there's some pretty incredible scenes of destruction that we're seeing. yeah, sounds like it. okay, kristen, thank you so much for that reporting from new jersey. let's bring in our white house correspondent, kimberly how get as we're saying, the president is heading to the state of louisiana to take a look for himself. what more can you tell us about his plans when he arrived there yet? could hear the helicopters on the south lawn of the white house,
6:17 pm
the president sent to lift off marine one very shortly. and he is heading down to louisiana where hurricane ida 1st head. but certainly didn't stop there eventually moving northward and really carving out a path of destruction. we've talked about some of the damages in the gulf coast regions with the number of deaths, but also just the long term pain that so many are feeling as a result of that storm. still, in terms of the lack of water, half a 1000000 people have that cut off and we're the 1000000 customers last powered, so that still is not restored. so the us presidents going to be looking at that damage. he's going to be on the ground. he's going to make some remarks, but he's also going to tour it from the air to really get an understanding of the scale and scope. one thing the president talked about and he talked about at the white house not short time ago, but the fact that these storms are more severe than they've been in recent years.
6:18 pm
and as a result, this requires a federal response to deal with that, whether the damage is in the south or up in the north, the christian was just talking about this. would it be the coordinated federal response? and that's what the president wants. take a look at it to make sure that those that need that money get it as quickly as possible. right. so is the president feeling the pressure i kimberly, to do something on climate change? absolutely not just because of her cain either the damage inflicted but also the wildfires out in california, oregon, washington state and even up into british columbia. canada, these wildfires now have a longer season and they burn hotter and that's a real concern because we're seeing the effects of climate change it extreme weather all around the continental united states. and so as a result the us president has identified this is an existential crisis. but talking the white house just a few minutes ago, he also said this is
6:19 pm
a reminder of why congress needs to work with him to bolster america's infrastructure. because climate change can't be addressed overnight. and so the systems in place right now in the united states are not able to withstand this extreme weather. so it's really a 2 pronged approach to the present fully pressure on not just to get these infrastructure systems in the electrical grid, etc, up and running and robust. but also his voters are counting on him to address the broader issues of climate change. in fact, given the fact that democrats control book, the house of representatives and the us senate and the white house, the pressure on him is enormous to use that legislative might to get things done. okay, thank you so much. kimberly how can reporting from washington d. c. officials a new zealand say, a man who stabbed several people at a supermarket was being closely monitored by intelligence agencies. police shot and killed the attacker who wounded at least 6 people. in auckland, wayne hay reports and afternoon shopping in new zealand. largest city was
6:20 pm
interrupted by a burst of gunfire and sirens, i'd soon emerge that police shot and killed a man who had walked into a supermarket in the west of oakland and detect shoppers with a knife. he said this woman came out. okay. and then i went down to the other end, there was an old gentleman in main line on the ground. he said it didn't take long for the police and the prime minister to label it terrorism. and to reveal details about who the attacker was, the sure lincoln came to new zealand 10 years ago. and for the past 5 years had been a person of interest to security and intelligence agencies. and because of that, police say they were able to stop the man before he attacked more people. the attack began at $240.00 p. m. and was undertaken by an individual who was i know, one threat to new zealand. the individual was under constant monitoring.
6:21 pm
and it was the police surveillance, tame and special tactics group who were passive, that monitoring and surveillance that shot and killed him within. i'm told the spice of roughly 60 seconds of the a take starting. there were also restrictions in place in oakland because of the cove at 19 outbreak, meaning there were few shoppers inside the supermarket. the normal new zealand has been on alert for attack since march 2019 when australian white supremacist brenton . terrans killed 51 people in 2 mosques in christ church. the prime minister said it wasn't clear a friday stabbings in oakland were revenge for what happened in christ church. but the police say that confident this was a one off and that the attacker was acting alone. wayne, hey, al jazeera toner, you zealand japan's prime minister. oh, you're sure he'd suga says he will seek re election as leader of the governing party this month. it's. that's the stage for his replacement after just one year

6:23 pm
that number to position where essentially he was, you know, the right hand man, the enforcer, the person who would go and sort of, you know, knocked together bureaucrats and terrify them to get done what the government want to get done but then you become the number one man, you become the prime minister. and a big part of your job is communication. it's creating a career man, a connection with the japanese people. and on that score. suga was just never showed a spark. you never showed any ability and essentially for the entire year, every time at a local election came up, the ruling party was losing. so it was clear, he just didn't have that touch of, of connecting with the japanese people. and that's what he was really missing, the reports of heavy fighting and the libyan capital for police between rival armed forces. it's the leave the worst classes in a year or half a near a military base. libya has been divided between 2 rival administration supported by
6:24 pm

6:26 pm
in terms of the number of cases. but as i've said, it's not the number of cases we need to be focusing on, but how many of those cases end up in our intensive cables, hospitals, and how many people we have vaccinated as quickly as possible. more than half of a stella is under a stay at home order, along with sydney, melbourne in the national capital camera have been in week long locked downs. and in new zealand, some progress in its battle against the outbreak fueled by the delta variant, a large drop in new cases from the previous few days. we need to continue to keep those testing rights up to give us the confidence that we are catching any kind of that, that may be in the community. and then finally decide that these results today are encouraging. but as dr. michael ne, his seed the job is not done. we must continue to be vigilant and get on top of this ap rec, this low cobra, 1900 outbreaks across south korea. officials there have extended social distance in curves for a month. this ahead of the thanksgiving holiday, later in september,
