2:00 am
i am friday morning on us international in the headlines us troops back in. i'm gonna send this to get the diplomat. as the taliban makes rapid territorial gains, the state department claims. it's not a hasty evacuation though. just a safe draw down a bit. but the meantime, use open door policy seems to slam shut with the block. splits of the moment over the migration of refugees from i've got several states are insisting on their right to forcibly deport those susan sullen cases have been rejected. and one woman's dead and 17 others are injured for a powerful bloss toll through a bus to the ton of her own issue in western russia last evening, official to yet to identify the cause. when i was miss told us the explosion hit
2:01 am
that vehicle extremely high. the explosion was very loud, and so loud i was deafened for some time. and the blood pressure was so high that my car was almost pushed to the other side of the road. ah! good money from rush, it is friday. the 13th and this kevin over here at ortiz, will do center most go with 30 minutes of our latest for you in 1st and truck in the latest. and i've got to start with a taliban says it sees the country's 2nd and 3rd largest cities nor canada and had rat. unverified video is circulating on social media, purportedly showing afghan security forces, flea and canada. ha, just half an hour before the taliban announcement. the u. s embassy and cobbles, urging all americans to leave the country immediately go so far as to offer loans. those unable to afford place it urging people to use the nearest available
2:02 am
commercial transport. a couple journalists told coley bray, but the deteriorating security situation. what more do you know about the capture of kandahar is the taliban claims? according to some icons, the governor of the province is only left with a 6 or 7 of his body guards the refusing to leave. he's from kandahar we heard reports of heavy fighting between the taliban and members of the kandahar police inside the police headquarters. we have to really remember that kandahar is the home of senior, all of our leaders and commanders. this is where they started their movement in the 1990 s. i think it's also a very embarrassing scenario for the americans. the international community inital, when a place like cotton r falls in line is time does not have that credible piece process or a comprehensive and permanency side. it was the american officials, you know, and other wisdom officials publicly and priding on the fact that the top to bottom,
2:03 am
we're not to do this, the thought about. and we're not to do that in this. and now the african people are left extremely vulnerable. that is not to say that the african government was not incompetent. that is not to say that i've gotten politicians in africa and government failed to put the country before that own political interest and political bickering. and one really feel sorry for africa and soldiers. you know, like they've been bearing the brunt of this conflict. so many within the african military are now asking, why did we did? why so many sacrifices allow, the americans will say they put in the money they put in the effort. they've had significant losses themselves. and i've now pretty much said you're on the road and it's up to you to sorted out. do you now see, judging by what you've just said, that that, that hope is somewhat futile? well, i ones do speak to the americans from a very bad full past when the russians who are defeated here, the americans basically left there was nothing for them which led to the civil war . the rise of tyler bonding,
2:04 am
the $911.00 attacks. so many i've ones are saying fine, you're leaving, but leave responsibly, you know, leave what the peace process commit to that, you know, don't let us honest on fall back to the 1990 s the dynamics. so quite dangerous, this time for the region for i want to sign in for the world. and let's also not forget, you know, what has been dubbed time and again by, by western countries in every other country as b stocks. these are efforts to start be stuck. these talks have not resulted and an end to the bloodshed and suffering of the african people. and now we are looking at a humanitarian crisis of epic proportions where one's of lost their homes, that harvest that cause their businesses and the situation could actually get worse . there could be a domino impact on provinces in and around. cobble in, cobble itself does face a massive risk, is a really serious situation than with a telephone taking hold of multiple provinces in a single day. here is troops a back to work, and i've got to stand by with a slightly different mission. this time that to get us embassy stuff out of the
2:05 am
country. when the state department says it will dramatically reduces diplomats in cobble. and although this may look like an evacuation officials have tried to strike, can optimistic note about it. this is not abandonment. this is not an evacuation, this is not the wholesale. busy withdrawl, what this is, is a reduction in the size of our civilian footprint. this is a draw down of civilian americans. there are 3000 u. s. military personnel headed for afghanistan to secure what it's calling a safe, draw down of american civilian personnel. basically u. s. embassy staff, and others are going to be scored it out of the country by the military. the military will be there to make sure that they're not harmed in the process. now we do know at this point that the taliban after receiving,
2:06 am
receiving and seizing several provinces in a single day, is now engine closer to the capital city of cobble. but on tuesday, joe biden made clear that washington is not going to step in to rescue cobble in this situation. african leaders have to come together. we lost thousands at last death and injury. thousands of american personnel got a fight for themselves. now the current taliban offensive began back in april when joe biden announced that he intended to withdraw all us forces from the country by september 11th. now that gave question gave rise to 2 questions at this point. you know, and what is really going on now, will the usa now that it's sent, you know, 3000 more troops to oversee the, the, you know, the withdrawal of us civilian personnel and embassy staff. will the u. s. a. continue to have a role in the country. well,
2:07 am
when that question was presented to the state department, here's the response. this is not the reintroduction of military forces to pursue the mission that they were pursuing prior to may 1. now september 11th is the deadline that joe biden set for which the us forces will be withdrawn from the country. however, us officials continue to make clear that despite pulling all us forces out of the country, they intend to still offer support to the afghan government in the face of the onslaught of the taliban. now how exactly the support will be offered was something that john kirby representing the pentagon refused to clarify. here's what happened when he was asked about it. does this mean the us military withdrawal is not going to be complete by august 31st? again, what i said was, we're aiming to facilitate the reduction of the civilian personnel by august 31st. so it's all lining up on the same timeline. i won't speculate about what the
2:08 am
footprints gonna look like post august 31st because there's this additional mission set of, of helping process special immigrants. so we're just going to have to wait and see, but the drop down itself is still on track to be complete by august 31st. that makes no sense. john, i know i know what your troops, i know what you're saying, lucas. i'm saying of the of the original footprint plans that still continuing, but yes, we adding additional troops for this specific and narrow focus and we're hoping to get them all out by the end of the month. i'm not going to speculate beyond august 31st. now it's important to note the united states has maintained a military presence in afghanistan for over 18 years. and during that time, the country is not become any more stable. the role of the drug lord than the poppy field has certainly expanded in the country. different terrorist groups and warlords of battled for control. the taliban remained intact with different parts of territory and such. and now after 18 years of the united states,
2:09 am
not having success, when it came to the stabilisation of afghanistan, we had the united states set to leave the country. and despite the taliban marching ahead and inching closer to cobble, those plans to withdraw from afghanistan seemed to be in full effect. kind of over there in new york city. so this widespread speculation that the capital cobble could fall to tell about within days is the situation that it's done to the moment . or somebody can see the key that the militants control, 2 thirds of the country seen in red. the government forces are in green when the yellow, much diminished currently contested, instead of regions. currently, the islamists have taken hold of somebody crucial strategically important locations . very near the capital capital. the taliban ramped up as offensive back in april is the timeline again. president jo buttons announcement that he was pulling american troops. i was a capitalist for that. at the time, the islamist group held less than a 5th of the country territory. now the control more than half. so this still is he
2:10 am
showing no sign of abating enough. galveston view and his warning that nearly 400000 civilians had to leave their homes since the start of the year. we did not see the huge spikes since may further the you and says, the displaced people are heading to cover to flee. the taliban. here are just some of the hot wrench you stories that some of the refugees of the tell us. i have been displaced from telecom. the taliban killed my son. they took all the belongings from my house and set fire to them in front of the punch me in the mouth, causing my teeth to fall out. they demanded my son and i told them that he's a school teacher. she recently became a teacher and had not even received his salary yet, had class has broke out. we were taken hostage in the fighting, went on for about 6 or 7 days, but we couldn't go outside to do anything we managed to escape. and now we're displeased to look then where to go. those displays to africa and seeking a solemn may not be that welcome in europe with the blog currently loggerheads of
2:11 am
what to do with migrants. and those fleeing violence. next to this morning, r t pull asleep delving into what happened to europe's open door policy. the european union is split from what to do with african refugees speaking, assign them in the letter to the european commission. civil countries insisted they have the right to force to be deport those whose cases have been rejected. they vote that not to deport them, would motivate more refugees, to flee to europe. we would like to highlight the edge of need to perform returns both voluntary and non voluntary, to afghan, a stan stopping return, send the wrong signal, and it's likely to motivate even more afghan citizen to leave their home for the e. u. the situation in afghanistan is deterioration by the all when it comes to the us and nato prepaid to what's called a troops at the end of the month. after decades long war,
2:12 am
the situation is so bad that the netherlands, germany, and france have decided to port the deportation. at least for now. the situation in afghanistan is likely to change and events for the coming period are so uncertain that i have decided to introduce a more atoria on deputation decisions and departures. agree or stress belgian and denmark standing firm. they want the rejected assign them because the e u. is not really and does not have the capacity to kind of another major migration crisis. why having us, as guns are waiting, make up around 10 percent of asylum seekers. they're the 2nd largest group off the syrians and for a continent still scarred by the migration crisis of 56 years ago. there was a feeling of a who, a feeling of having been they before, that has your opinions worried. they might be on the verge of a fish refugee crisis. those people who are here from a gun is done,
2:13 am
they're not migrant. they're a few use and asylum seeker. and that is why it is very important to remember at all best in countries have signed humour a convention refugee convention. and they are duty bound to has anyone, not only of guns, but syrians are anybody who come to the, to their country? and as far as how long, because you are in the country are any conflict personnel, tech due to their life. so i think then the western countries say, oh, we don't care if a wonder if you go home or we do for them. i think this is a violation of humor. right. and we should do that kind of thing. so we have to 40 pass out is friday morning and moscow. and these pitches coming in as sicily
2:14 am
reported 48.8 degrees celsius. what will be europe's highest ever temperature this we reco broken, the drone photos you're saying from greece, show you, extensive destruction and damage and recent wildfires of erupt it on the greek islands of a via scorch trees, burnt, had a homes. those blazes of also destroyed local infrastructure including roads and existing networks, but the other kind of problem is st. louis. we had weather at the moment. in contrast, in the chinese city of a who bay that's witnessing severe flooding 21 of being killed. and for a missing has been really bad flooding in china. the season a torn, sweeping through the streets, damaging supermarkets, vehicles, and houses. some news came in the last evening from western russia. the city of iran is there an explosion read through a public bus, killing one woman in injuring 17 others is still a mystery was up and they're wanting this report starts with st. camera footage of
2:15 am
the actual thing, the actual explosion and contains some distressing images. so a split 2nd before the explosion, then deborah, flying at all sides and then a fire at the time it's believe the bus at around $35.00 passengers aboard. as the blast hit, many of those still able to move fled as best they could. shock, dazed, followed by more disturbing images of the explosion, showing an injured person lying on the ground, the among the debris, hooker ok, rushes investigative committee, opening a criminal probe into the explosion with a number of explanations being considered to say to a bit of a mystery this morning when i witness told us what he so little so i was driving towards the southwest marketplace and drove by the bus. a blast suddenly happened. my car was shaken. i looked in the rearview mirror and saw that my vehicle had been passed by an explosion. i stopped. the buses, roof is blown away. people start arriving, emergency services please. simon. someone was taken away with a legs blown off,
2:16 am
others had severe abrasions. the explosion was very loud, so loud i was deaf and for some time and the blood pressure was so high that my car was almost pushed to the other side of the road. basically, the most concrete and well statement we've had, we've had, is from russia's anti terrorist committee, or rather russia's investigative committee, i should say, the version of a terrorist attack. this is something that has been on everybody's minds on everybody's lips because russia is no stranger to such attacks by law, mac radicals, according to them, this version is not completely ruled out, but it is definitely not the primary one. they are essentially treating this as a very tragic accident, and they're suspecting that the operator of the bus talk that it was, well, it was negligent when it came to will safety of transportation. and that they're suspecting the maybe they had like a gas cylinder installed. and that was something that went off another version. and
2:17 am
another aspect of this suspicion is that some of the passengers might have had something in the luggage. again, like a gas leak or something, there was no malice, no bad in. it wasn't. well, it wasn't an easy wasn't an attack, but they just happened to have something in that one. so we do know for a fact that the investigators they are checking the whole bus pog, perhaps suspecting that maybe one vehicle had something like that installed which should have be in there. because according to all documentation, bas bus was diesel powered. of course you can marry diesel and gas, but i mean that would go very much against any will any safety of transportation. so they're taking the whole park to see that if other busses have something like that installed, is that the possibility that the bus in question that the vehicle in question also had this device there? well, it grows exponentially. so also, another thing that is,
2:18 am
is pointing against the version of a terrorist attack is, well, a witness account of the source in police of an r t source within the law enforcement. who have said that basically the aftermath of the explosion says simply, doesn't look like the one you see after a terrorist bloss have a listen. projectiles such as pieces of wire or nails, things usually used an explosive devices were not found. those injured were mostly hand by fragments of flying glass. however, the chance that it could be an explosive device can still not be ruled out. so what they're talking about that is a very common and well world by practice used by, well terrorists, they do not just hope or they do not pin the hold on the blast wave on the damage done by the blast wave, but rather they stuff for the id with all sorts of little sharp metal objects like bolts nuts and wires and so on and so forth. so that when this device goes off,
2:19 am
it's not just the blast wave, but also these pieces of metal casing through the flesh, through the bodies. and it just multiply the may, that the device can well can, can, can greek, the, all the, all the havoc, basically something went off in the rare left side of the bus. something went off and you can see there, you see, there you go, there it goes off in the rail, left part of the bus. you can see the explosion very clearly. there it is again. and so the left even, even, even if you look at the pictures, the left side of the bus is completely destroyed and the right one, even though it is severely damaged, it is still while it is still quieter than decimated. but according to the bus driver, who is fine and who was in the front part of the bus, here's what happened on that vehicle. as it was, we're waiting at the bus stop. miss diane and we were still people were getting on the bus, the traffic light turned red. people go on from the cross walk. i started driving
2:20 am
off then the last happened, broken glass smoke. i couldn't understand what happened. people help to evacuate others. there are people who are seriously injured. so again, the authorities are, of course, looking into all versions into possibility you can parallel to this, the governor has announced, and he's that he's urged all citizens to be extra vigilant for any on an unattended packages, any unattended items. like quote, bags and so on and so forth. so just to just so, so that the people remain vigilant just in case the raises someone out there who wants to hurt people of veronica. and of course, hopefully the list of wounded and killed does not grow any further. yeah, absolutely. have this morning is 20 plus the this friday for moscow would be kevin, oh, in this, an american study exposing a severe drop me would go again. and the efficacy of coven vaccines from pfizer mcdonough when faced with the pesky delta of area. and we take a closer look at what they're going to say. what are the implications after the
2:21 am
short break? ah, i financial guy, i don't buy a i buy mom a teacher's that's not an almost friday. that's the last time i buy it from the future. so price. watch kaiser rebooting. ah. is your media a reflection of reality? in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for tyson lation community? are you going the right way or are you being direct?
2:22 am
what is truth? what is faith in the world corrupted? you need to defend the so join us in the depths will remain in the shallows, ah, in the again, a worrying drop in it because he, them for 5 or the cobra vaccines has been highlighted by a new american study showing they dipped significantly against the problematic delta strain off the 6 months ellipse drink, it picks up the story. you're about to see the face and hear the thoughts of a leader confident. he's almost beaten coven and his country. thanks, george roared facts seen efforts. we gain the apprehend against this virus. we can
2:23 am
live our lives, our kids can go back to school. our economy is rory back. it must be really painful to peddle back from that which mr. biden hasn't done for now. a month after the speech, though, a senior member of his administration couldn't help admitting the nation was facing a real wake up call. if that's not a wake up call, i don't know what is, what is this scary wake up call that can be rail the whole quote unquote, heroic vaccine effort. look, pfizer is the most popular job in america. but research data collected in one state, minnesota shows that pfizer efficacy against cova dropped below 50 percent in july and now stands at 42 percent. the studies. 6 not universal, and it's conclusions. haven't gone through a peer review yet, but there's no turning a blind eye on the worrying numbers in it. so what,
2:24 am
what wrong? a key reason could be that the white house, along with the whole health care system is up against the pesky enemy, the numbers, unfortunately moving in the wrong direction as delta is the predominant variant here in the united states. we are going to begin with the pandemic cases are storing across our country, driven by the highly contagious delta variant, the as the delta various races through all 50 states, driving new case numbers upward. it's all reflected in the numbers that have gone from about 12000 new cases at the end of june in the us to more than 155001 august, the 11th. look at the curve. it's nowhere near flattening. nobody wants the worst case scenario when mutations out smart the scientists, but that is a possibility. in the meantime, southern states have begun reporting, forges and intensive care unit beds. the crisis is taking install on health workers,
2:25 am
country by country delta is putting the whole world to the test. now it's apparently america's turn. it's also a crucial exam for vaccine developers. the good news is that johnson and johnson and split big v shots are still highly effective against the delta variance with 905 and 83 percent efficacy. we're actively, but it looks like covert and its butane capabilities. we'll keep bringing new greek alphabet letters into the public consciousness. unfortunately, much more complicated efficacy. math could be on the way. yeah, well the pretty surgeon and physician run, she'd brought telling us some countries are cutting themselves off from scientific advances for political reasons. and his view this whole panoramic really held a mirror to the world. it shows me the truth about our political system, about health and equality about inequality globally. and of course, about
2:26 am
a political move of ation, which interfere with what, what other like be strictly scientific and medical consideration. so for example, in, in britain, we have been quite full would, in making huge a contract with, with united states and other countries to buy the vaccine. but we have to ignore the efficacy, both of the russian vaccine and of course of the chinese. and it does seem that we're going to suffer the result of that. the funding find vaccine tickler was 1st to publish phase 3 results. and at that time showed a 96 percent. efficacy was the most effective of all the backs and really an efficacy is holding up very well that we are cutting off of the political reason from the scientific advances that are available in the world today is the thought of breakfast time is canceled. culture killing comedy will stand up some comics, raising the alarm over it. seriously say the laughter business is the threat
2:27 am
because offending the pc movement could be ending. korea in time please everyone, your please know one with comb with a while you've got i think you got deal with booze and content issues and sometimes you do an irony, some people don't get not when everybody gets safe and nobody tries anything. things get boring, right? moving, so i see a lot of and funny comedians unfunny tv shows, you know, it's hard to be a comedian as it is. and if you're going to muscle someone and they have to be careful what they say, it makes it that much more difficult. so we should just stand up, no censorship here and comedian should not be afraid. and they should not be attack by others who are the twitter police or, or the you morality, police. where do you draw the line? yeah, well, despite that reaction and social media suggest there are plenty of other comedians, happy to play it safe because today's edgy material could come tomorrow as an
2:28 am
acceptable and at a touch gig while comedian, much or folly though, thinks that this increasing. so censorship is a troubling trend. comedy is something that brings people together and why, why would you want to get rid of that? yes, some people will be offended by some jokes. not everybody finds the same things funny, but the potential is there, like what brings people more than anything else? is comedy and, you know, i don't think it's just comedians, you know, people in general are certainly self censoring. they don't want to lose their job over something they said 10 years ago or just ever they don't want to get censored or lose their income for a joke. so of course people are self censoring that you know, less it for now i see the conference. so much more with track of the developing serious situation. i've got to stand for the day for you and you can keep in touch
2:29 am
the story from western russia last evening. one dead, 17 engineer from a mystery bus blass reporting for moscow. kevin, i was sending off for now for me and the team have a good day and keep in touch with us online. mm. ah ah ah ah ah ah, ah. the
