their anger at how the situation in the country has unravel so fast. just even invading up down a fam was a radio tailored historically, no one has ever able to conquer up dana stamps. the people i talked to are a it's a completely botched ah . broadcasting lab direct from our studios in moscow. recapping the weeks tops words with our weekly program, this is our t enter nation. now, an explosion has reportedly killed up to 9 people in the can capital cobble, including 4 children. according to local reports, all of the victims belong to the same family of the us military have confirmed that it did carry out a drone strike, resulting in secondary explosions. a central command spokesman has said it is aware of reports, the civilians were killed and is conducting an investigation. according to pentagon

officials to target was a bomber laden vehicle carrying several suicide bombers, who were planning to attack couple airport. this comes 3 days after a devastating explosion at the airport in just 2 days before the us pull out the deadline. it's all the latest here is archie is what i got you. who's in the can capital. it has now been confirmed that this was indeed a nash strike. it happened just in the valley just on the valley between the 2 hills behind me, that is where the airport of capital is the dro strike itself. the strike targeted a residential neighborhood. there. they identified a threats, a vehicle board, i g, provis explosive device suicide vehicle that potentially could have been that driven towards the airport and designated there. it has been very tense here in capital since that terror attack at the airport 2 days ago with a suicide bomber detonated as best at the north gate of capital airport,
10:03 pm
causing pandemonium. 30 the american troops parish, the dozens of taliban fighters, and more than a 100 women children, civilians all desperate to get inside. before the evacuation wraps up on the 31st of august, that is the deadline for american troops the allies to get out of of got to start unless they want to risk confrontation with the taliban. the taliban has made that very clear. as the evacuation facts wraps up, the situation here is ted ted because of the security threat that isis k, which claimed responsibility for the last bombing, may try to attack the port again. that is the biggest fear we spoke with aft n journalist to be lost or worry. he thinks the ongoing security meltdown enough kind of stan represents a major challenge. well, it is the 1st time that the americans are carrying out a drawn strike inside the city of car will not very far from where the forces are
10:04 pm
stationed in it alone tells you what is the end result after 20 years of investment in blood and treasure this is what failure exactly looks like. well, they said has carried out some of the most deadliest and brutal attacks in the city of cobbled. but this time it is happening under the rule of the taliban. we have to remember the air strikes today and cobble in the previous one in the city of july, you know, inside the city are taking place when the taliban are in power. so one has to really wonder if it is a new chapter of cooperation between the american taliban on this fight. the road ahead for a virus, i'm quite tragically, is one of economic hardships is one of uncertainty and fear prevailing. thursday, suicide bombing in hobble airport, left 170 dead, and hundreds injured with many meeting hospital treatment and
10:05 pm
a number remain in critical condition. we spoke to one survivor who described his experience i had applied for the visit, the for this invited us to come near the door. i was near the gate when the explosion occurred. i saw myself falling to the ground and when i stood up, i told the dog last one side of my abdomen. and then they brought me to hospital is one of the wounded. i says k, islamic state splinter group, behind thursday's, bombings is active in eastern afghanistan and pakistan and launched a savage campaign of bloodshed when it was founded in 2015. the the
10:06 pm
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 none go har province on isis k. but the roots of this group in its existence is poorly understood. and of course, when we hear these press briefings at the pentagon, there's very little context as group actually is a direct by product of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. it grew out of the pockets, donnie taliban, who were disgruntled taliban members who wanted to carry out attacks on us targets inside pakistan and afghanistan. one of their most spectacular attacks was on camp camp chapman, u. s. military base where they used
10:07 pm
a c. i turn coat to attack us soldiers. there are several 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 with no slumming state of iraq and syria, right. isis, which was this group that took over in 2014, 2015, big swats of iraq. and. and by the way, who were able to do that because of massive amounts of military equipment that the us left behind the civically interact, 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 islamic state of correspond, 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
10:08 pm
importantly, they've been fight in the us and i bring up the point about the weapons because we just did the exact same thing in 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 creating a very similar problem. what we saw 20142015 with the other isis eerily prophetic. this is how a c n n reporter describes her interview with a senior isis k commander films, just 2 weeks before the deadly attacks and couple in it. the fighter says that the group is laying low and waiting for the time to strike, interview itself was aired shortly after the attacks, which has raise questions about the timing of the broadcast we've asked in and for comments. brian becker, national coordinator of the anti war coalition answer was concerned that i c. k was given the time in the 1st place. cnn is only about one thing, which is really making profits they, the cnn said on the interview,
10:09 pm
waited for something sensational to happen, which i feel k was essentially predicting that as the american forces wound down, ices k would spring into action, which i obviously did at the airport, i thought it was nauseating, actually, i think cnn is just giving heights as k, a platform, so that i, c, n, n gets higher ratings and gets more viewers. in other words, there's an element of a moral, unethical, ridiculous profit driven coverage by cnn. but if you look at cnn coverage of iraq or afghanistan or the tribe administration, or the u. s. government, now it has that same sort of profit driven orientation. and again, we learn nothing from that interview, but i says, k, u c n n. and cnn was glad to be used by isis k as a platform for their propaganda. the 13 trips killed and the thursdays bombing,
10:10 pm
we're the 1st death of us personnel in afghanistan in 18 months. and one of the largest daily death tolls in a decade. 10 of the service men were from the camp pendleton, military base in california. dozens of people have been laying flowers at the entrance to the site. the dead comprise of 9 marines and a sailor most of them in their early twenties. pendleton bass is home to the 1st marine division, the largest and oldest in the court. those paying their respects, including relatives of the dead express, their sorrow and frustration. and the tragic turn of offense. government let him down the leaders and so she could feel this stupid stupid mission at this point and tell him to send them in like that you never want to, you never want to see something like that happen. and so that's that's it. so yeah,
10:11 pm
it's heartbreaking. there's not enough words to express, you know how i feel right now, but i just, you know, i feel that somebody has blood on their hands and it's just was so i needed to unnecessary, you know, i mean veterans have voiced their anger and how the current situation is played out . we heard from to exit service men. the real failure of this war enough can expand or whatever you want to call it. a conflict was explicitly pointed out in the papers where a lot of generals basically spoke about the fact that there was no mention that had no mission. they didn't know what they were doing there, and they didn't know what they were going to do in the future. anyway, so yeah, so of course i think, i think not pulling out of just even invading up. dennis sam was a radius taylor. historically no one has been ever able to conquer up, down. people are offset with people. i talked to r a re it's completely bunched. there is no. ready political will, and there is still americans trapped in afghanistan and still haven't been able to
10:12 pm
get to and as far as lessons learned from, i mean other previous words. i mean, if we haven't learned from vietnam, if we didn't learn from, you know, from iraq and early to thousands. i mean, we're just gonna continue to make the same big mistakes because we're not the ones that are pocketing the mit. and we're just being used for the will of the m i c and that's and that's what i say about that. 2 men in their thirty's have died in japan days after getting their 2nd doses of the madana covert vaccine. japanese health ministry has launched an investigation, madana and to kid up pharmaceutical. the japanese distributor of the vaccine have said that there is no indication so far that the deaths were caused by the job. we do not have any evidence that these deaths caused by the maternal tribute 19 vaccine. and it is important to conduct a formal investigation to determine whether there is any connection on sunday. they
10:13 pm
can, our region suspended the use of the magenta vaccine after some of the batches were found to be contaminated. the 2 men died received shots from a tainted batch. now this comes after john pan has halted the use of over 1600000, tainted doses of the majority vaccine that had been delivered to more than 800 centers around the country. the government said that the measure was just a precaution and has launched a probe. senior clinical lecturer brought upon connie and told us an investigation must be carried out to see if there is a link between the contaminated vaccines and the death. so i think the japanese people are referring to a batch that may not be 100 percent clear, but that doesn't mean it was a unsafe batch. and what i mean by peer is there are some reports that in the wiles and the in the, in the empty bottle. after giving the injections,
10:14 pm
they noticed something that shouldn't be that some contaminant and it looks like a manufacturing contaminant. but i must emphasize that it doesn't, therefore translate that the vaccines cause the death of those 2 japanese people. although it is of course, very unfortunate to hear that soon after getting there seems to people have died. we need to investigate this and find out if there is a relationship. i don't think there is a relationship, but we should investigate with the millions of doses of the vaccines now given. we know that it successfully protects you against ending up on the ventilator and dying. so if i were a choosing man, i would choose vaccines at any time, every time. hurricane ida has slammed into view as gulf coast and is now causing havoc in the state of louisiana. the storm which has weakened from a 4 to
10:15 pm
a category 3 storm, is one of the most powerful on record and has forced thousands of people to evacuate their home. it is already left more than half a 1000000 people without electricity and shut down. 95 percent of oil production in the gulf of mexico, the sheer strength of ideas when even forced the mississippi river to flow backwards. damaging a number of fairies, the hurricane made landfall just a few hours ago on the 16th anniversary of hurricane katrina. although it's more powerful than that storm which back in 2005, kill almost 2000 people and, and flicked it around $100000000000.00 and damage. louisiana officials say that hurricane either will pose the biggest challenge yet to the states. newly they did loving system are now to a developing store in peru. tragic where around 70 people, including about 20 children, are fear dead after a passenger boat and a barge collided on the river in the amazon warning, you may find the following. images disturbing. the incident occurred in the early
10:16 pm
hours of sunday morning. the combination of fog conditions and the lack of lights on the barge that hit the passenger vessel or thought to be the cause. witnesses saved, the passenger boat was split into in the collision and sunk in a matter of seconds. one survivor told local media that he managed to save one of his sons, but tragically lost his wife and another son. the peruvian navy and firefighters are now on the scene. we now return to a topic we feel deserves more investigation than it's getting elsewhere. in the latest of a series of reports, we're looking at the problem of transgender convex, abusing female inmates. in presence, a growing number of women say that their lives have been turned into a living hell, hell by living, male prisoners, exploiting the system. now, in one of the most notorious cases in canada, women found themselves in danger after predatory male offender who claimed to be
10:17 pm
identifying as a woman was sent to their prison. the walk in on him have inspecting the dream in the ball for him, making out with someone else. and one of the 3 son was me. 3 women read the morning after bill. someone also had to take the bill, which she used under the assumption that they provide protection from 8th and habitat is the he quoted me, the one who, one day telling me how beautiful i was. and he was trying to get his name. it was super weird. all the girls were uncomfortable, shalon in the house with him and everything. he tried to tell me he was in love with me. it was weird. he asked me to leave for him a good girl and started making out with her and feeling her out. well,
10:18 pm
i was there. he breck, how many girls last year? and he also brag about taking the girls virginia be in the library, to give details, as well as the air limit when they're worth your while speaking, there it was in the living room do you encounter? i couldn't eat after the braces are inside women's jails rating. our women men are using this loophole to access already vulnerable women who have new voice, so platform to speak from our government, setting out women to be sexually assaulted by these may read this as a correctional service, canada told rti it provides a safe and secure environment in prisons and does not tolerate sexual coercion and violence. the next round of our investigation into transgender crime in female
10:19 pm
presence, heirs on monday, where we will look into cases in the state of california. and also in the u. k. i will be back again at the top of the hour with another look at the weekly, but 1st my colleague soft taylor spoke to activist heather mason, who shed more light on the issue in canada and describe her own experience in of abuse in prison. oh, in fact, i want to get a sense of your time inside, and specifically how trans inmates affected your experience. i was incarcerated with trans individuals and provincial that was the 1st time it came across. and then again, when i went to the federal and that was when they actually put them on compound with us, instead of segregating them away from us. and they didn't have to have surgery. so that happened in 2017. and what was your reaction when you love the
10:20 pm
trans inmates living in the compound with you? well, i was actually really freak doe in provincial because they brought me over to the indirect supervision range. and there is a sex offender there that was fully intact. and he was there hiding out because of his crimes. that's what the guards told me. anyway, he was trying to peek into my style when they're searching me. so that was my very 1st experience of that. but when i got to federal and i was told that there are men on compound with us, i was blown away. i didn't believe it. i couldn't believe that they were putting males in women's presence. i was actually harassed by one of them when i was inside, used to get me to try to walk back and forth in front of them so that they could check out my but lots of other comments as well. and then i was also in the halfway has with a male who had fully intact and it was like walking on egg shells. are you worried
10:21 pm
that there are people who are going to use the system in order to end up in a female prison? and then come out and decide that he's a man again. well, yeah, there's nothing to prevent them. if they claim transgender identity, you can't say that they're not transgender because you're discriminating against their identity or their expression, and even the one, but do get denied transfer. there are utilizing the grievance system, which is a complaint system or correctional services with canada. when they're complain, it's not resolved. they're bringing it to the human rights tribunal. did you ever inform the gods about how uncomfortable you felt about incident you described of sexual assault and it's so how did they react? so. a as women, we do not utilize the avenues that are set up, right? so the grievance system and the human rights tribunal. we're just not, we're not taught about it. we don't understand how the system works. and for the
10:22 pm
most part, women are there, they're dealing with. so much trauma like a lot of them are like constitution, drug addiction and abuse their entire lives. they just accept it as another thing that's happened to them. it's reality of being female. so there are complaints and there are grievances, but not enough. women are speaking out because they're scared. did any of your fellow, female prisoners have similar experiences to you? yeah. some of my friends were like, pushed up against the wall in the laundry room and a hard time shut down their throats. they've had their breasts or their touch, sexual comments. a few of them have been sexually assaulted, so to speak to a lot of women that have been incarcerated. and the stories are very similar, same with physical altercation. they've never been punched in the face so hard.
10:23 pm
they're starting to carry weapons around, which is not a normal thing for women that are incarcerated in canada. they're putting soup cans and socks because they know that they're fighting males and not women. and as the really really big power difference between them, candidate prison system allows men to choose to solve a sentence and a female prison. if they say they identify as women, they don't need to undergo any sod, true or human therapy. that what is enough fuel for to say this is in the name of the quality and to ensure the safety of transgender is the little change was pushed for by prime minister justin trudeau. himself, will you do your best to ensure that trans women put in prison or prison more appropriate to their gender identity? yes, i will ensure that i consider myself to be
10:24 pm
a fairly strong advocate for. for l g b t q 2 issues and fairly aware of all the different pressures and this wasn't one that i had ever thought of. so thank you. had the mason, whom we just heard from, says the government has to rethink its approach to the whole issue. nobody wants to speak about it. they don't want to report on it. we're being told that we're lying, that it's not happening, not have to use that return. so back there's literally no discussion about it. there is no discussion before any of the policies that were implemented. and i feel like there are solution to this. they have the room in men's institutions, have wings and dorms, and they can make l g, b, t q, wing, better tailored to their unique needs over the united states. similar concerns have been raised. for example, by the case of deny at one row, a transgender woman in illinois who was transferred from a mens prison to
10:25 pm
a women's facility bubbles off to she alleged mail and mate had sexually harassed her. but in her new prison, monro herself was accused of raping a female inmate at the thought of the california past its own controversial law. now it allows trans inmates to be transferred to facilities that line with that gender identity. the law was adopted in january by may, over 216 transfer requests had been made and not left some female convict, very worried. i will not be victim anymore. i have endured sexual abuse as young as 4 to 8 and with the rape as well as numerous main staff correctional officers being an appropriate ever since california. as as b one for 2 has passed, i have been living in constant fear. i can't mentally function without fear. if the men come here, please help us. i'm scared just because they feel like
10:26 pm
a woman doesn't mean their penis doesn't work. we discuss california law with alex har on a co founder of partners for ethical and founder of the agenda mapping project. she says the well being of women prisoners is simply of no interest to legislators. senate bill 132 is, is, is sentencing women who have committed whatever crime to the punishment of sexual violence at the hands of meals. and i think that in terms of the pyramids of nice, gavin newsome and scott winner and every other enabler who had the largest to happen, views, the feelings of the physical safety of incarcerated women at the bottom of that pyramid of needs. when we of course understand it has to be a top ortiz keeping a close eye on similar developments in the us. and for the walt. and we'll have
10:27 pm
more features on the issues raised to call me ah, psychiatric drugs are essential for millions of patients, or are they, they want that pill that they hope will take care of their problem thoroughly and rapidly in the short term. they really work. the problem is in the long term, they're mostly disastrous. suddenly stopping a drug can cause withdrawal symptoms more serious than the condition that was meant to treat instead of the beneficial effects of these different medicines. any up to something wonderful? very often they're harmful effects and up to something terrible. can pills so of
10:28 pm
all ills? or are we trying to mitigate life itself? i just think i was like i was just scared, scared little girl of 24. and like i didn't have to be so complicated join me every 1st day on the alex simon show. when i was speaking to guess in the world, the politics sport, business. i'm show business. i'll see you then in the me the me
10:29 pm
ah, well controls as far as great power politics is not different from the jostling place in a high school hierarchy, the guys playing games of cheek him against one another. well, trying to marshall others, cause why the pacific journey you have, combustible negative national interest by the ever present political rivalry. no wonder that's on that reading that the next the war will break out in asia is not a credible threat. well, to discuss it, i'm now joy by for while devolved, you just form our foreign secretary. you actually is a great pleasure, great honor for me to talk to you. thank you very much for finding the time. my pleasure. thank you very much for inviting you gave me several days more than 4 days of your life to be diplomatic service. diplomacy, especially in your region, has never been short on rivalry,
10:30 pm
intrigues and all sorts of complicated relationships. when you look back at your long career, do you think current diplomat, those who are in service right now, do they have it easier or more difficult? when i think this is, jason has become much more complex in nature. things are become very difficult because all the idle china and the inability of not only the neighboring countries of china, but also europe and the united states to come to terms with it. and we talk about the 2 cities as being policy for just re establish video all the reasons for a concert. what is happening is that the united states has now in recent years under john and even on the vitamin become very vocal about the central.
