everyone here in the newsroom and sorry, welcome to annisa. while getting all started, of course, half danced on is still reeling from a devastating bomb attack in the capital of the now town about one country, 2 explosions. roxy international airport. the current at the center of western evacuation efforts more than $100.00 people were killed, including american military personnel. just a warning there is some graphic footage coming up. one of the bloss happened, an entrance to the airport downs were waiting in line to be processed to fly out. forties were thrown into a sewer, drain located near by. an explosive fact was said to be used in one of the attacks . and other blasts shook an area around a hotel web. british officials were processing our downs to fly to the u. k. soul to say that more than 1300 people were injured. 13 us members were among the dead, along with 2800 bond members.
8:03 am
the visa image is a party taken following one, all the explosions that was sent to us by witness between the 2 black shots were also reported on site, so it's unclear who fired them more at god's did this in kabul, and told us how the cities faring off to the incident situation so far this morning is somewhat cob of and it was yesterday, but we kept hearing as many as half a dozen explosion. and this is after the to terrorist form bloss at the airport. some of them are explained by the trailer, back to the local population as, as control designations carried out by american servicemen destroying their assets, equipment that they don't want to leave behind and that they can't evacuate. nevertheless, things that hasn't been the sort of shooting we had overnighted and the sirens that we heard yesterday. but from what we understand. and this has been confirmed to us
8:04 am
by, by numerous sources, searches and raids carried out throughout the city over the course of tonight. and this this morning as well. those searches and grades are still ongoing. the terror threats at the airport is still high. you may have seen footage from the airport this morning. the crowds never went away. it's very difficult to describe just how many people there are at the airport now. how tightly packed together they are and how impossibilities to, to, to vet them, to sort of pack them all down before they get to the fence before they get to the various check board. thousands and thousands of people packed together screaming, jocelyn, shoving, trying to get into the airport. that hasn't changed. and nato countries as well as the taliban. all warning with the crowds must disperse for their own safety. those
8:05 am
who carried out these, these attacks, they saw the cottage that they caused, isis allegedly has claimed responsibility and the, the threat to ease. and the, the fear here is that they'll try again, which is why we're seeing the search is carried out. now these raids by the taliban sizes allegedly, coordinating with us forces, but as i said, the situation remains tense, not quite as bad as it was yesterday, but nevertheless far from com islamic stage for a son, which is a regional affiliate of isis has claimed responsibility for the atrocity agile, the black u. k. u. s. and other western nations had been warning the nationals about the threat of a severe terror attack and advising them to avoid the apple. we spoke to cosign and who was near the hop when the fast explosion occurred. to dave into the airport of i was standing on to get near to get him and they used to so it's very close to
8:06 am
like 5 minutes away. i just thought there was like 45 minutes they had and they had to run. there was looking look danish people renewed the duration parliament, a difference of them, the type of the type of groups waiting. guess we're looking, we're suspicious. they didn't have guns. what they was looking for the airport. they was looking to be used troops. they will, i will a 100 the mentors and they get back to the ally numbers with the people like after 12 or 2 minutes. an explosion happened on the weekend. it was near. it was near the lake 1st, then away an accident happened. didn't go on 1st of the year after that they used to, they call the people that stay away, stay away with people that didn't move. they told me that they are joking because they did things many times. there was always didn't get the stairways and then the us started tubing, gas, gas and smoke when the people fix to save and guess people,
8:07 am
the people who really need to get the injured. i saw there was like 5 to 6 woman danger. dear friends was born and it was sitting there was going on the grounds. the i spent a great behind thursday, bombings has been active in eastern afghanistan and pakistan and launched a savage campaign of bloodshed when it was found back in 2015. with more details on the group, his, he was donald, the dreaded name of ice. it had all but vanished from international headlines. but now, amid the afghan power vacuum, the terror group has apparently struck again the . the double strike right outside cobble, airport, killed dozens, american politicians had been warning. an attack was inevitable, but to no avail. every day were on the ground is another day. we know that ice case seeking to target the airport attack. both us and allied forces and innocent
8:08 am
civilians. as we conduct these operations, we are sustaining the highest level of vigilance for an attack against the airport by isis k or another terrorist group. or commanders on the ground have taken every step they can to prepare for such an attack. isis k is an afghan off shoot of the same the tourists islamic state terror group. it's based in car a sun, hence the letter k in the abbreviation with over 2000 g. hardy's committed to its terrible cause. the group targets have ghana stones most vulnerable the the
8:09 am
if you think this may have been isis case law strike the exiting foreign troops before a happy union with the taliban? well think again. the 2 groups are sworn enemies with the taliban just not radical enough in the eyes of isis k. the islamic emery strongly condemns the bombing targeting civilians at cocoa airports. the explosion took place in an area where us forces are responsible for security. the bottom line is isis k presents a massive security and reputational challenge for the taliban. given the taliban attempts to look more civil, humane and legitimate, we could conceivably soon see. i mean, strange as it sounds,
8:10 am
a taliban lead anti terrorist operation, or isis k, might become the perfect pretext for the us to negotiate at least some presence in talib, uncontrolled of garrison. we did hear about this group, for example, and i believe, april 2017. when trump and essentially authorized the pentagon to drop the mother of all bombs in eastern afghanistan, i believe in the nun go har province on isis k. but the roots of this group and its existence is poorly understood. and of course, when we hear these press briefings at the pentagon, there's very little context. this group actually is a direct byproduct of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. it grew out of the pockets, donny tallow bonds who were a disgruntled tolerable members, who wanted to carry out attacks on us targets inside pakistan and afghanistan. one of their most spectacular attacks was on camped camp chapman, u. s. military base, where they used
8:11 am
a c. i turn coat to attack us soldiers. there are several. busy other attacks on american assets and this all led to a rise of terrorism inside pocket on directly related to the u. s. presence in afghanistan, 6 years ago, the pakistani taliban, which was widely suspected of being used by the african government, backed by the u. s. against pakistan turned into isis k central. it's the same thing as isis. so most viewers would know the flemish state of iraq and syria. isis, which was this group that took over in 2014, 2015 big swaps of iraq and syria. and by the way, who were able to do that because of massive amounts of military equipment that the us left behind, specifically in iraq, that's where they really got their weapons from. they went into iraq, took those home these weapons and went back into syria. isis k, which is the flemish state correson, which essentially means eastern. they don't like the taliban, they're not friends with the taliban. they've been fighting the taliban. but more
8:12 am
importantly, they've been fighting the u. s. and i bring up the point about the weapons because we just did the exact same thing and up dennis and left behind. unbelievable amounts of us military equipment, massive amounts of weaponry and guns black hawk helicopters from these. we left it all there the same way that we did in iraq. so we could be created a very similar problem of what we saw. 20142015 with the other isis. isis. k is far from being the only faction able to carry out such attacks. not the warning from the african national resistance front, which controls the punches. finally, an area now seen as the center. beyond the taliban opposition, its foreign relations had believes the terror threat in the country right now is even stronger than it was 20 years ago. it could be, i says k, but we think there are, there are other elements plan the attacks. and that might have perpetrated such attacks against us soldiers and was a terrorist attack on the watch of the taliban. a group that says we are able to
8:13 am
provide security and now in one day we see numerous terrorist attacks happening on the watch, unfortunate the international terrorism and get us on as much stronger compared to 2001. this is something that the national resistance front of afghan on has been saying for the past year. we believe the international community should help our efforts to combat to national terrorism and afghans in 1900 on the, to the international community. abandon scanning them. and we saw how afghanistan became a haven for terrorists groups. the same will happen if the international community abandons of canada into 2021 is posed a threat towards everyone. no one is an exempt. and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world or the eastern lot, he managed to speak with the taliban spokes, pass not to have to own
8:14 am
a range of issues including fighting drug trafficking and the threat posed by potential resistance forces in the north, the country the give me which, sorry, really sorry about what happened, a couple add port for our part. we've taken measures to avoid these unwanted events . of course, the responsibility lies with the americans. they tell people to gather the field. they say we will take you out. there was hustle and bustle. the americans opened fire at people. many were trampled in it crush. many died by august the 31st. the americans must have played the evacuation of their employees. mo maitland s for the pansies head. it's not a big problem. there were only 2 people to who would like to continue the war. amory la stella and afterward my suit. we repeatedly appeal to my master to resolve the existing problems through negotiations. and there is no need for
8:15 am
a military confrontation. we've not received an answer to our calls, and that's not a problem either. or i'm forced as a station nearby pension here to keep the situation under control over mall and believe the current situation is entirely dependent on the afghans and no one else. you are not going to become a threat to the states bordering us using the g o strategic factor. we have good relations with tajikistan is back as time to minister on pakistan. bron china. i can assure our neighbors that they should not fear any threats, home or damage from our territory. the belly law and the drugs we have a far reaching plan to revenge drug production. currently, about 3000000 afghans rejected to drugs. this is this side phenomenon for us. we'll try to nullify the cultivation and production of drugs in 2001 the cultivation and production of opiates would not eradicated work in this direction as well. in some
8:16 am
provinces, the sewing and collection of drugs is still ongoing. and here we need cooperation not only with the countries the region, but also with other interested state, went down the rush to leave and the and suing panic was all to me. the august fast withdrawal deadline, which will show point in school. however, he's now presiding over the deadly stay for the u. s. military and i kind of stone and move in a decade and a televised address on times. emotional president vowed revenge, but said the assets to get people out of the country will continue. here's what you need to know. this, isis tears will not win. we will rescue the americans. we will get our afghan allies and our mission will go on. the evacuation will continue and that the united states will get out any and all american citizens and african nationals were permanent us residency, what's known as a green card,
8:17 am
who want to leave, he sent some people may not want to leave, but those who want to leave the u. s. will make every effort to get them out. he said it is an airline airlift mission, unlike any other in history and was expected to be dangerous and stressful that was planned for also attacks. there had been warnings about attacks. he called those u. s. service members, now i believe the numbers up to 13 who are killed, quote unquote heroes saying they are the backbone of america who are engaged in a dangerous, selfless mission to save the lives of others. and that the mission will and must continue. now, more than ever, and he had this message for those responsible wisdom to those who carried out just attack as well as anyone who wishes america harm. no, this, we will not forgive. we will not forget. we will hunt you down to make you pay. general kenneth mackenzie, the head of central command, are sent. com said isis carried out the attack specifically isis k or isis correson
8:18 am
and will likely continue to try and launch more attacks, adding that others have already been forwarded by security forces and cobble. the general went on to say the attack involved to suicide bombers detonating explosives outside the abbey date of the airport and nearby hotel the bearing hotel, followed by isis gunman, opening fire on civilians, men, women, and children. along with us troops and military personnel. there are warnings about to attack and it's certainly raises more serious questions about america's evacuation efforts. why it has become so incredibly catastrophic and also pass comments from president biden himself, about america's effort in afghanistan and the war on terror. listen to this mission, to degrade the chairs, tread about cod in afghanistan and kilo. some have been live was a success. i believed that our presence in that gas dance should be focused on. the reason we went, the 1st place to ensure i've canister would not be used as a base from which to attack our homeland again. we did that. we accomplish that
8:19 am
objective. president biting seem really backtrack, even raising questions about whether the u. s. again, should have been in afghanistan in the 1st place to begin with, and certainly as long as the u. s. was there nearly 20 years as far as the ongoing effort? general mackenzie said isis remains a quote, extremely real threat and will try to carry out further attacks. something president biden also agreed with saying this was a mission designed for stress. and that was expected to come under attack and certainly that happened, as we know, he said at this point it does not appear. the taliban played a part in the attacks and that it's within the taliban interest for america to leave the country as well. he added that again while america will pressed ahead, with withdrawing and evacuating any and all us citizens and ask in nationals by august 31st. the august 31st deadline. he could not guarantee total security wasn't here. it sounds ridiculous, but the vast majority of people and communities like that want to come to america,
8:20 am
given a choice. so getting every single person out is can't be guaranteed anybody because there's a termination or who wants to get out as well. and there has been intel sharing, and this was confirmed by general mckenzie between us armed forces and also the taliban. and so emphasized the messiness of america is nearly 20 or involvement in afghanistan. now coming to heretic violent and crashing. and it's not surprising to me. when i and i'm a prisoner relates after the the tech over the air force base. and it was pretty clear that now we have thousands of people who could do harm beyond the tower on and the on is not a tightly military unit. so it's not surprising, it's this farming, particularly for the men and women in uniform and the veterans that i've been
8:21 am
working with that get people out of afghanistan over the past we've, we've got reaction to bite and speech from legal on this china for tomorrow. strong, conservative commentator at martin both were far from impressed with the president's wives. the global community has lost trust and faith in joe biden, in his administration, a large truck now in the united states of america. despite the victory of the games and united states, military wives have managed to completely unravel and, and wine back in a matter of months, putting our military in women's lives in danger. you know, biding can get up there and say, all he wants to cameras will hunt you down and we'll get you. but he has lots of credibility, not only this rate and the, the euro, or any, but he's a lot but credibility from our allies as well. i don't know how somebody is able to do that in 9 months of administration, but i don't think anybody is surprised that it would be under the biting ration.
8:22 am
we're watching the bible presidency deteriorate before our eyes. this president is not handling this well and everyone knows in america and the people in the rest of the world know it. so it's actually a very dangerous time. i hope the present is careful and slow and methodical. but right now what we're portraying is weakness. and uncertainty, he says at the end of his speech, and now i am allowed to ask the person, and course as i was instructed and right now, china is looking to taiwan and, and bad guys are looking at america and saying, let's take advantage of this. really weak, really embarrassing moment in american life. it's a big concern. and the way calls to bloss multiple european meters are readjusting their evacuation plans. the august touch for the deadline just for days away, which no western fault is all set to remain in. consul peter oliver has more now how well he does on handling the evacuation. miss holly in plane there was
8:23 am
evacuating people from the the airport. the cobbler came on the fire last night. we've already heard from mario doggie, the italian prime minister, saying that the upcoming g 20 summit, which will take place here in the italian capital will have gone to start as a big part of its focus elsewhere. what we've seen is the u. n. a refugee agency, specifically there representatives in germany, in this folks person in germany. i think they would continue their efforts on the ground after that. so if you 1st of august deadline here from angular merkel, boe, the german chancellor saying that the time was really running out to get people out of afghanistan. right now. we know that the window of opportunity is closing. $10000.00 people could be brought to safety. i want to reaffirm that we will not forgive those who can no longer be rescued by air, least we will continue to try to get them out of the country, the foreign ministries,
8:24 am
talking to the taliban about this. and we will also coordinate internationally on how we should proceed. well, franz had said that they were ending their lift. however, in the last few moments, we understand that paris is looking at extending not 4 hours, perhaps even a few more days. up towards that 31st of august deadline, we had heard from the french president manuel mccall. and he said that there were 20 boxes of french nationals on the guns that france has taken responsibility for and wanted to get out of the country wasting. the asked me a bite to cobble airport. the french president acknowledged that the time that getting those people out was going to be difficult and that there was a possibility that some wouldn't be able to be evacuated. we have known these risks and the thought given the confusion, that rains in control and the tensions at the airport, the next few hours will continue to be extremely risky in both couple and the airport for safety reasons. the bus that will not remain enough chemist then he
8:25 am
will remain on bus of the 1000000 that we will continue to have an ambassador and a team and an embassy for afghan, a span as we are not recognizing of regime but a country. well the u. k. minister of defense, ben wallace was doing the rounds on british media on friday morning and one interview i heard, he said, he only wished they had 7 more days in order to get people out of the country. they don't have time. in fact, mister wallace went on to suggest that the british presence on the ground enough galveston could be wrapped up in a matter of hours. not so much a matter of days. we will process those people that we have brought with us the size of people approximately inside the field now. and we will seek away to continue to find a few people in the crime where we can. but overall, the main processing has not closed and we have a matter of eyes. there are still people that are going to be in afghanistan that we couldn't get out. we've also had news coming out of ankara,
8:26 am
the turkey having decided on a proposal that had been put to it by the taliban. now this was a proposal to try and help keep cobble airport after keep public or open after the 31st of august. the deadline, what the taliban was still insisting on is that turkish troops halt, have made so would have to get out of the country. but they've asked for technical help from ankara in order to keep the airport open for little bit longer. president of turkey said he still hadn't decided what his country's answer to that request would be. but it's cool unless shot a ross, he believes the west intervention in afghanistan is walk a price to isis in the 1st place and evenly spread by by these western elements when west and central asia under the guise of warren para, had the says make defeat in want to spawn, i says, is a creation of mr. mocker on our need to ship been u. k, the political elite and washington. but the reality is they want to give the world

more than $200.00 british businesses along with faith and political leaders, how can wants to joint campaign against cope with passports, which they claim are a sign of oppression. the initiative called together has launched the petition calling on people have different political views to unite and what's described as a fight for freedoms. some of our hard one, right. so now, under serious threats being ordered to produce medical certification at pubs, club theaters on public transport at schools, universities, or anywhere else, is unwarranted and risks deepening the inequalities already present within our society. we want to free fair and open society for ourselves, our friends and our families. while addition to that, hundreds of u. k. citizens of also be making a stand against those possible right on the streets of london. this week, the headquarters of 2 national broadcasters were targeted with demonstrators claiming that news reports web bias in favor of the passes. one of those behind

a petition campaign believe this time life returned to normal. it's entirely unreasonable and unacceptable in a free society that we should be demanding to show. our paid is to security guards of almost private and intimate details. venues are not willing to do it and where many of the public can stand against it. and the government needs to stand down in the vaccine possible. it's make no sense logically. but actually there are an attack on a way of life. nobody ever suggested that we should have passports to show with either had through vaccination. it's just on acceptable and has nothing to do with house. we need to get back to normal without any restrictions. and no, it's no bots is far more risky to our society. now, if we try and have a checkpoint society a to, to society, a segregated society, we are far safer as a society if we're free, an open love to wrap this out. thanks for keeping me company. we're going to head,
