which also carried out the cobble apple blast in august with many killed on that occasion. the latest incident follows another deadly explosion on sunday at another bask in the country's capital. and all this, just 2 months after that, the taliban swept to power, filling the void, left by the us led withdraw. local journalist visited the site of the blast incentives this report. today at 1 pm this afternoon during prayers here at i. e. she i'm mosque and couldn't, does, had bomb exploded and i witness to say at least 100 people were killed. the explosion was so powerful, according to some officials, the new taliban government had warned attacks like this one were possible. earlier taliban security personnel visited this place and they gave the opinion that it might be a suicide blast. after examining some evidence, we've seen such a blast in the past hitting mosques and killing worshippers. some states were targeting she on the era they were targeting, she are in syria,
5:03 pm
they were targeting, she are everywhere in the middle east. so i wouldn't be surprised that this, this is, as i said, you know, this is actually the work of them speak because nicholas said that here is there. is there another good believer over there? so this is, this is the, it's the fuse. but i mean, the major aim is who these that belies afghanistan to actually these to believe that taliban rule and of denison. so this is busy the beginning, and i wouldn't be surprised that the more of the big let, that slide miss will take place in that fuel. we sent them among sir, ahead. democrats in the us congress are going all out with calls for a crank l. m. facebook following claims of a company whistleblower. but he now turns out francis hogan as close ties to the party. something she fell to mention while demanding action against the now former employer. facebook's products harm children, stroke division,
5:04 pm
and weak in our democracy. the company's leadership knows how to make facebook and instagram saver a won't make the necessary changes because they have put their astronomical prophets for people. congressional action is needed. a k francis hogan who is she will, she is being represented by a co founder of whistle blow age on tie. he served in the apartment ministration here the co founder of the organization, which helps whistle blow his pay. lawyers face logs 8 legal rep for alexander vin men, a white house staffer who testified in donald trump's 1st impeachment trial. mike's blumenthal editor in chief of the grades and highlighted other alleged links and says that political affiliation shouldn't comes any shock. her testimony dovetails very closely with the democrat censorship agenda. their plan or their desire to heavily sensor social media. francis, how again was pushing that agenda if it's true that bryce and jill at the strategic
5:05 pm
communications firm that is reportedly advising francis halligan and which was founded by former obama bill burton. does it enjoy this relationship with her? then we also have to consider her relationship, a possible relationship with abide and white house, who's press secretary jen. saki i actually used to be employed as a senior advisor by bryson july 1. what's clear here is that democratic operatives were not, if these reports are true, are providing p r advice and promotion to francis how going a previously unknown figure, who was instantly verified by twitter the day of her carefully coordinated and crafted testimony. so she's not as a, an actual whistleblower. she is a political operative advancing a cohesive agenda. what's more, it's
5:06 pm
a most francis hoggard is a regular donor to democrats, affiliated organizations, which help party candidates get elected, legal and media unless little a max blumenthal again gave is that take on the facebook allegations and also the dangers of census you. she just wants more government intervention. so i think the impact we're going to see going forward is more censorship, more intervention from the intelligence services and the reorientation of these social media sites to target official u. s. enemies per her recommendation. i think her. 2 you know, it could, it can benefit multiple causes, you could see it benefiting the religious. right. that doesn't like the kind of semi pornographic content on instagram and the way it degrades women of feminist could get behind it. but behind it all is a much more insidious agenda that how going outlines she has explicitly called for bass, beefing up facebook counter espionage team to take on official enemies. she named
5:07 pm
me and mar ethiopia, which is a new target of u. s. empire as well as iran and china. she did not refer to facebook working with any u. s. allies to carry out malicious activities. this is an extension of the narrative we've been hearing since the russia gate saga began. the real issue, the gravamen, the, the $64000.00 question is one of our people and coating a former president of the united states who are excluded. an expert gated bowdlerized from any kind of public conversation because of who he is. that's the issue. i may ask you some, one of you were on your phone on your mo bile and you said something politically piquant and all the sudden your phone went dead because your carriers as far, we don't like that. that's a hate speech. and you say you're the phone company, you don't, you don't monitor what i say. well,
5:08 pm
that's what we have to look at these companies as utilities, they will shut you down merely because you're oh pining and expressing in a an opinion. that's what they never talked about. that's the reason that's what i wanted to hear. that was never addressed in this big whistle blowing, expose a cash, blah blah blah, blah blah. as gretta would say, calls are growing in the united states. the slat new sanctions on russia over the north steam to pipeline in lights of europe's energy crisis. this just days after letting me put in pledge to ramp up natural gas applies to europe as prices it, it record eyes asked is donald quarter took my colleague, union o'neill through the details. they're basically being accused of trying to artificially keep the price of natural gas as high as possible. but that actually announcement by the russian president vladimir putin to boost to europe's natural
5:09 pm
gas supplies, caused a price decrease of 20 percent. right after that, amid this energy crisis, and just 2 days after that, we heard from us congressman michael mccall, who said that the u. s. should resume sanctions against russia in connection to the north stream to pipeline. and why? he says that russia's somehow weapon ising. it president biden and chancellor merkel committed to taking action. should russia attempt to use energy as a weapon? yet both of tend to blind eye to the puts in regimes deliberate efforts to pressure europe into accelerating the russian node stream to pipelines, certification process by manipulating europe's gas markets, and leveraging a severe energy crisis on the continent. i'm a call says angle of merkel is turning a blind eye to some apparent malign, influenced by russia, but angle of merkel herself has said that russia fulfills all of its obligations in these contracts that are voluntarily made between russia and the european union. the fog, it is a gift. this, if you ask me whether there have been orders that russia has taken and then fail to
5:10 pm
fulfill as it stands now, that is not the case. that is, there are no orders that frush has said, no, we will not deliver those to you and we're not pumping gas through the ukrainian pipeline. rather russia can only fulfill orders that have been contract it out. so the question is really, isn't being ordered, the international gas union also crazed russia as the power that can bring energy security to europe. and that the north stream to pipeline would actually play a crucial role in that. so it doesn't exactly seem like the reasoning behind mccaul, statements to resume sanctions against russia has a leg to stand on. and yet the allegations from the u. s. keep coming. how is moscow responded? we heard from russia's foreign minister survey leverage. he said, basically the u. s is trying to pit russia's european partner is against moscow. let's take a listen to what he said. said your list of 34 in regards to the us openly say that cooperation with russia is contrary to europe's energy security interests. they want to directly embroiled in this area and reduce our independence. now it's also
5:11 pm
important to note that russian president vladimir putin even urged to russia state gas company, gas prom, to continue pumping fuel through crane even once north stream 2 is fully operational. and that move would show europe that russia wants to act in good faith that they're ready to fulfill their contractual obligations. even though if they made this move entirely to a pumping gas to the north stream to pipeline. this would save the company billions of dollars. marcus watcher, craig allen, believes that sanctions against north steam to on top of europe's list of priorities the pipeline has been completed and it's, it's to the situation now is about approval on the a you is in a difficult situation when the pressure is going to be maybe not immediately, but the pressure is going to be substantially get this over the line if with 2 months from now, when we're in the midst of a cold winter, then pressure is going to ramp up. and i don't think sanctions is going to
5:12 pm
ultimately get in the way that the end of the day your plan is always going to choose to keep the lights on over. 2 over move in search of an ideal for the storage levels are much lower than they typically are this time of year and they don't have the capacity to make up last grounds. we know we've obviously had a cold winter last year, which is why these levels are low. we know that if we have another cold winter this year, that these levels are going to be far lower once more. and we're also at a point when demand is higher because of the reopening that we have seen around the world. so i think europe has a massive problem and they are in a position now where they are heavily reliant on any extra supplies that can come from russia. european lawmakers are pushing for a ban on facial recognition systems is by police. the parliament passed the non binding resolution against biometric surveillance, which some emmy pays compare to cold war snooping. that's an important step in
5:13 pm
fighting against mass surveillance. the central and eastern europeans used to live under the eye of the big brother. and we don't want to come back now, the resolution calls for a ban on funding or deploying programs that could result in indiscriminate mass surveillance. the document also emphasizes the importance of human supervision in any final decision making and urges authorities to be more transparent by using open source software. it's not the 1st move against excessive surveillance in 2019 san francisco was the 1st city in america to enact a complete ban on police, biometric surveillance of the us. it is then followed. we discussed the pros and cons of facial recognition with security expert david low and former years police officer, dominic is i, there's a great saying in law enforcement that when you're a hammer, everything looks like a nail. and all this does, it may have the great grand scheme idea of you're going after some very serious
5:14 pm
offences like child sex trafficking are missing persons or terrorist activity. but i don't care who says what, it'll always be used down to your lowest common denominator, which is your citizen. and it will be abused like crazy. you're then actively putting a tool in the police's hands to look for crimes proactively in the wrong way. i think this is just, this is a door that's going to be open for some very abuse of authority. i don't think it's a good idea and it should have put police in this mindset of that everybody is a criminal. good news. we are in criminals and terrorists, and i think a terrorist threat both in europe and north america since we'll have enough gummy. so if you did look out, i mean, i'm talking about dealing serious organized trauma trafficking. i'm not about dealing with cs trafficking, those talk offensive terrorism. and i think the point that was made, but you know, it's only allowing, like counter terrorism agencies. policing agencies in the u. k will be like the
5:15 pm
national con, one you know, a, we agency those things you wouldn't give it to have any police force. it was like when we were in the european union, michigan information system, which was a database that wasn't available. so the police force a m u k. it was only to send an offices and the pounds i just happens and all of them in the united states were, were abuse. we just abuse. so if it was, if it was utilized and executed for what it was written up more than a 100 percent of the oversight was proper on that i think would be a great tool. i think that, but we just, we always take something that's, that's meant to be some way and we just, we water it down and we abuse it. it's about giving who has access as a day to store and also destroying data with collins and making sure those safeguards in place. and that's why i said, you need judicial scrutiny. what's to make it say that it doesn't go all the way down to again, the lowest common denominator, which is the citizen and a detective,
5:16 pm
or a street car, shriek up as a bad day and he wants to go through all the backlog of your activity for last 6 months and charge you for a crime that you committed 34 months ago. poland on a collision course with brussels after walsall. talk court will some me you lost clash with the countries constitution. the timing makes the issue of more acute as poland currently seeking billions of years in e, you recovery funds, me to oliver picks up the story. there are shots fired in that confrontation between warsaw and brussels and the constitutional tribunal. poland talk court is basically said that the polish constitution has precedence over you law in the country. the primacy of constitutional law over other sources of law, results directly from the constitution of the republic of poland. this has been clearly confirmed by the constitutional tribunal. it's very important to point out
5:17 pm
the polish prime minister matters more vertically says this isn't a sign that poland is about to try and leave the european union. in fact, he says his country has no intention of doing just that, but we are hearing again things that sound like breaks it. remember briggs? it caused to do it hasn't gone anywhere yet. well, now we're hearing about polk sits. doesn't exactly roll off the tongue, but it is what it is. in fact, here in germany, the press is full. this morning of talk about this being a legal polk said that poland has essentially, by making this ruling the tried to pull itself out of the legal frameworks of the european union and france deeply unhappy as well. we've heard air condemnation from paris or the european commission has said that they have serious concerns about this ruling from the courts, while other e. u officials are clearly far from happy at this move, the verdict in poland cannot remain without consequences. the primacy of you law must be undisputed violating it means challenging. one of the founding principles
5:18 pm
of our union ease states must not stand by idly. when the rule of law continues to be dismantled by the polish government. neither can the european commission or money can't finance governments which mark and the gates are jointly agreed rules or this. it could be a go a different way though, cuz this because these rulings from the courts only become law when they're published by the polish government. now, what could happen is the could take this ruling from the constitutional tribunal and go, we'll pop that in a drawer for now, and maybe we'll look at it a little later because what you have at the moment is a situation whereby poland isn't getting tens of billions from the european union in covey recovery money. poland can look at other member states. you've already received their cash. you're already spending their cash. and wondering well what, how we going to make sure we get ours? so we may well see this ruling from the court used as some type of bargaining chip to try and find a rapprochement between warsaw and brussels. but it certainly doesn't look good at
5:19 pm
the moment in some of the concern that's been shown from the european side. certainly justified, as poland says, essentially the rules and its country supercede. those of the european union followed. the hamburg institute of advanced 30 palo bernardine believes at brussels in warsaw. don't start talking. poland could follow the u. k. out of the you constitutional. not a single state is always super, sees that the, you appear laws because europe was unable to give or to solve the constitution over 50 years. we owe the mass respect to the state constitution and also the european union should find their way. but i would say, 1st of all, on the illegal term by dialogue, by setting up committees of legal experts on the iraqi or source. if deity does not happen, i will say, i'm afraid we should to think about a polish for
5:20 pm
a friend among the same way that the, the for, and the was that was done in the britain in january of this year. because otherwise we are just in a deadlock, we are, we are just unable to move for wars. and the cries is still go to my understanding . the only increase over the next month because we have seen so many quizes now. but anyway, and so many intentions between the european union and the poll i'm over the last year. turkey has joined algeria in lashing out of the french president after emanuel my trauma suggested. there was no algerian nation before french colonial rule, and co, branded my trans words populous move, had of next year's presidential election in france took in algeria are now part of an expanding list of nations, currently loggerheads with paris and do pinsky reports. france isn't having the
5:21 pm
easiest of times. it seems to be rattling on multiple fronts internationally. and was that it's waging offer some foibles take. i'll g re francis palmer colony. it's resisting president mack owens attempts to draw the line and it has an ax to grind that didn't go down well and then to add insult to injury. my home blamed hatred towards france. young algerians hole in the political military system, which had rewritten history based on lies when questioned. what is how interior was there an algerian nation before french colonization? that's the question. how jerry, a post $900.00. 62 is built on a memorial rent that declares france is the whole problem. hugh,
5:22 pm
a recall done bassinger while algeria also plays it as space, see the french military notes. colonial presses are not to welcome the country, essentially set this leisure which pushes the process official relations with some of our countries into unfortunate crisis situation should result through unconditional mutual respect. that's not the only trouble facing france. in africa. marley has a summons. the french ambassador for split nations. it's the rear said frog seeks to withdraw its troops. he can still think that he can hold the fort by sabre rattling but if you go near the left hand to button, the situation arising from the end of operation back on puts molly in a fe accompli abundance of those mid flight to assist. thank and it forces us to
5:23 pm
explore alternatives and means to better insure a security on the mostly or with other partners. and then there is this whole mike seek to pastor face there was no why that we could have taken this decision without it having and causing deep disappointment and hood to, to france this, this, there's no way we could have avoided that if it wasn't bad enough that a straight country which ranks a few more than several runs below france and military strength shocked it all for a rendezvous with the u. s. it also invited the briggs buck, and he is alone for the jolly, the french what dears. and found themselves crying out, which brings us to the u. k.
5:24 pm
my horn has often been compared to napoleon the will he get caught in the nights of his very own waterloo, francis so incense over the u. k. 's refusal to lactic fishermen troll they catch in british waters. it's even threatening to cut the country's electricity supply. surely, it would make more sense to just pass on the increasing costs of energy to the bricks, making them pay double, but no microns government is forcing a battle of wills. who will blink 1st. all of this comes as a friendship president is set to face his stay 1st competition to date. as the presidential election hurtles closer, many and suggesting the only person who blow a hole in makins hopes is well himself trans has lost his position for some time already. i would say, since the end of,
5:25 pm
as president transfers lost its position on the global stage of france has decided to follow the steps of the united states and nato. and we've seen the catastrophe of that in afghanistan and iraq in extra savio. now we've seen that france is totally lost. it macro is just living on the doors that france just to have. and now it's just finding out that this power, that france thought it had. he just doesn't have it. he's not the only one. he's just the one which is a he is the president wishes exposing this to the public that france is no longer the power. it used to think it was one of the busiest roads in britain was brought to a grinding halt. yet again, in the latest protest by climate act of his group in see late britain had states the number of similar stumps over the past couple of weeks. in the bid to force the government to think more green, that is causing many motors to see red shadow edwards dash d reports. jackie behind me is in see late britain, as you can see,
5:26 pm
they are located in the road here in central london that project their aim, their mission is environmental action. they want the government to heed that open message that cause he has much disruption as possible trying to back up the roads of central london. what they want is the government to pledge to retrofit and insulate all kinds properly and to make them more energy efficient by 2030. it's something they're asking. the government to act on immediately is led to the whole into the u. k. is, is walk along the route really to the government. it's one of the 1st and easy things to be doing. so we're in a serious, desperate, desperate situation. so the government needs to act and now we got very high fuel prices and decide, maybe we're going to have more than 3400000 households in fuel poverty. within a couple of months, i do have more than a half 1000 pension is going in our country this winter. i don't know. i totally understand people's anger, but i can sit by while pension is
5:27 pm
a dying that i have enough money. certainly. all the other methods petitions, march is appealing letters to m p. m. isn't it bill? all of these things, nothing, no action. and we are given today. nobody was hitting the road to disrupt good people getting on there a way nobody wants to do that. we're doing it for it to attempt to actually do some tickets. total con it already, and they very just been here for a few minutes. it comes despite the government taking a fresh injunction just last week. banning empty late members from obstructing the roads, obstructing the traffic, particularly on the low to a, is an a road in and around london as well. and people in and around this round about are incredibly angry. you're not letting bosses cause is wanting bus is cities only function with public transport. you call block public crowd because i'm
5:28 pm
a . 8 no, right, i understand what he's doing it. he's going to be late as a bomb, angry. i'm just going to deal with, well, it seems as though insulate personally don't have the public on side. they also don't have the politicians on side either. maurice johnson just a few days ago, labeled these protesters as irresponsible and impossible cross. these are the tensions right here are quite high. and d, there's a huge please your presence. they haven't yet arrested anybody, but that's only a matter of time until they change their minds. aah with always been here for around an hour or so and there's been at least a dozen arrests, but they're still around
5:29 pm
a 1000 protesters that have literally glued themselves to the rose. i've spoken to a few people that have now being arrested. one woman who was arrested 9 times, so she's prepared to go to prison for this cause. and so she's doing this simply for a better world in the future. i've already been arrested for and i'll keep doing it . i that the government start taking notice and insulated houses as it should be very, very simple as a start date, just to use the money to start into aging houses. walker carrying on with building or build re accommodate that killing the economy that can grow. it's about time they started being on it. so under these new measures, these protesters could be child up to 6 months and receive hefty fines as well, which campaign as a complete denial of their rights to peacefully protest. and as annoying as this group may be, would anybody, if you told me about them, if they want so disruptive,
5:30 pm
this group at least say it's up to the government and the government to stop this whole in a moment. and of course, making the 2 bed mon, i beg your ride up to date, i'll return with more on the top stores in alphabet with .
