11:05 am
are continuously getting the ports of the entire families being wiped and destroyed, for example, as to again while as a former african senator who is currently and gan district, the last 23 members of his family. and he continuously complained to me that villagers had to basically literally use anything that they had including the and, and follows to basically look for survivors. so 1st of all, the technical teams were never did to basically save people who have been saved. and now, according to many residents, people need shelter, people need food, especially children or, you know, living under the sky and, you know, very rainy and sort of chilly conditions where also, you know, getting an account from the taliban where they are painting a very rosy picture. that is there and full of food is on his way for the victims.
11:06 am
some of it might be through the reality is the roads are simply not accessible. you know, there has been lunch lights and they've been lap of helicopters because, you know, after august 15th and over is only handful number of helicopters left with the taliban. and it will take, actually years for these very decided you'd communities to recover not only from the tragedy of losing entire families, but also on how they could rebuild is michael holmes, my homes, that were the investment of lifetime. the u. kay's governing conservative party has lost 2 crucial by elections increasing the pressure on the prime minister barak johnson losses have prompted the resignation of the parties. chairman, who says it supporters deserve better. don't holl reports from devon?
11:07 am
the green fields of rural devil reliably, conservative for years, until now the people, if it's an analysis spoken from britain, they said a loud and clear message. it's time for us to go back and go because things, it's a whole different thing so far we've had so many use and things wanting. any other client actions don't always represent the wider national picture. they are often protest boats with a local focus, but nor do they tend to overturn majorities like this one in 2019, the conservatives won the tipton, and hornet, and constituency. by 24000 votes emerge. and they've now lost a loss that even conservative voters. so coming, i think it's possibly a little bit for change. you could say the liberal democrats have done
11:08 am
a very good campaign. they're absolutely full on in the current political climate, it's hard to separate the local from the national people do of course complain about public services about the cost of living at many say the conservative party has taken them for granted until that is their m. p stood down when he was found to have looked at pornography in the house of commons. but repeatedly here, people do also cite national issues as reason for their choice. hello there, i'm going to chamberlain. i'm calling behalf of richard. fortunately things for violates. i just think with all the recent things, and the thing that we have with covert is the law of people. i think it doesn't fit right with. and i think this is the best chance of getting them sending a message really facing. let them sending a message to the conservatives that, you know, we're not happy. and that's why the liberal democrats success in tifton and huntington matters nationally. after this defi some conservative em pays,
11:09 am
will be thinking, do i really want bars? johnson to be leading me into the next election. you know, with losses. like this already happening. football is johnson's party. this west country seat has delivered a severe blow. the prime minister, who narrowly survived the leadership challenge recently, will now worry about his party's core support as will his m p 's. if the conservatives can lose here, they can lose anywhere. as keisha, john hall, who is live for us in tifton. jonah, i think the consensus had been that the conservatives wouldn't do particularly well in these by elections, but did anyone expect them to do this badly? it's hugely damaging for the conservative party without any doubt losing to buy elections heavily in one night. the 1st in west yorkshire wakefield, less surprisingly that one going to the labor parties, part of the labor parties,
11:10 am
traditional redwood of seats across the sort of working tasks. hinterland of this country that fell spectacularly in the 2019 election to the conservative party. and the 2nd to those seats, of course, here to, to in huntington, as i was explaining that estefan, this is the conservative party hotline, blue wall seats, if they voted 10400 years for the conservative party here, going to the liberal democrats in spectacular fashion in fact, it's believed to be the largest overturned in numerical terms of a majority ever that $24000.00 seat margin. so you've got the loss of a red wall seat that points to the labor parties chances of rebuilding the red ball in the next election. you've got the loss of a cool, conservative seat here. add to that resignation this morning. of a real party heavy weight, the chairman of the conservative party of a doubt in his resignation letter, not pledging northeast of ours johnson but saying things have to change. we cannot carry on with business as usual, and you've got there 3 reasons for real disquiet, if not a state of outright crisis in the conservative party and the government this morning
11:11 am
. yeah, it was a very interesting letter from him. and of course bars, jones, not even in the country to face the music. has he managed to say anything from randa, where he is? shelton is up the commonwealth heads of government meeting, and lender, as you say, far from the fray, but far from insulated from it. he's ready to state the state this morning saying he'll listen to voters, but he will carry on. remember, this is the prime minister who, less than 3 weeks ago survive narrowly too far, too narrowly survived. a competence vote among his own, mtv 2 and 5 of whom voted against him. that after a string of scandals and contrivances in government, issues of trust and integrity around seems like parties being held in number 10, downing street during lockdown. he received a fire from the police for breaking the law of these defeats will carry with them a message to his party and to his am fees that he is no longer boris johnson. the vote when he was in 2019 the electoral asset that he was in 2019 and it's entirely
11:12 am
possible now. and these begin again, their plans to try and unseat him. okay, many thanks for that, jonah hall, there for us in activity in the u. s. senate has passed, one of the strongest gun control bells in decades. the legislation had support from both sides of the political aisle, but it falls far short at the sweeping changes demanded by gun control. campaigners like hannah has the latest from washington. first of all, it is the most significant piece of bipartisan gun control legislation that's been passed in nearly 30 years. so in that it is truly significant. you had 15 republican senators voting with their democratic counterparts to pass this particular bull and the measures within it provides millions of dollars and mental health care, improving security at schools and drastically changes the way in which people aged $18.00 to $21.00 can buy a weapon but it does fall far short of what most control
11:13 am
a gun control advocates of probably the majority of americans, including president biden, were demanding and specific example. a total ban on assault weapons had been called for that is not included in the bull. nonetheless, it is a significant moment because it does signal what the senate majority leader, chuck schumer said as a step in the right direction. and it does come a bounce off to that shooting. and you've alby, and as some 5 weeks after that shooting in buffalo, new york. notable though that both though shooting, we're using assault rifles. however, the point is, is that it will now go to the house very quickly. the house speaker said that she'll bring it onto the floor or to morrow. the president will then sign it into law. so from the end of friday, this will become law in the united states, but it's ironic perhaps that this law,
11:14 am
the 1st bipartisan gun control legislation in decades comes on the same day that the supreme court strikes down a hidden concealed gun carry law that has been in place in new york state, for some 100 years still had on al jazeera, at human cost at the global tape crisis. agency say a running out of money while ethiopia is running. as i said, time to go, why ukrainian officials say their forces me to leave the city of that and on yet, which has been under siege to leave a the journey has begun. the 34 world camp is on its way to catherine hoop your travel package to day. hello, the weather has turned noticeably cooler across western parts of europe. bands of
