7:06 pm
mcbride in cobble with more on the latest games made by the taliban. this the ever changing map of who controls what in afghanistan really not looking good for the government after. what's been another very heavy day of fighting, you know, more than 25 years ago when the taliban 1st emerged largely from the south of the country. it found resistance to it in the north, what eventually became known as the northern alliance. well, you know, we seem with this latest resurgence that resistance simply being swept away with the gains of these territories and provincial cities really leaving only bizarre sharif, the misery sharif is the only the city holding out against the taliban in the north . another city can do which is very important in the north bell to the taliban at the weekend. and now we know that the airport, which had been holding out to conduce that is also full. and there are reports of very heavy fighting around conduce. and that is significant because given it's
7:07 pm
important that government has promised a will, we take this city and we have been expecting a counter attack. so that's a real test because if it fails that test, if it doesn't, we take that safety. that's going to be very telling on which direction this whole conflict is moving. so you have all of these gains in the north. and then of course that's the continuing violence in the south in helmand and kandahar the strongholds of the taliban in the city of laska, which is heavily contested. there has been a massive car bomb. this was a humvee packed with explosives that was trying to get to the main police headquarters. it was intercepted, the was detonated, causing a number of casualties. b, while in neighboring kandahar city, that city has been under attack from all 4 sides. so the fighting in the north and the fighting and advances made in the south. it really puts a psychological pressure on the center here in cobble. and now mohammed jumped june with the latest on the emergency talks happening here in doug. the fact that these
7:08 pm
talks are happening at all right. now it's such a critical juncture really goes to show how much impetus there is from the international community to try to come up with some kind of joint solution to a very rapidly deteriorating situation in afghanistan. one of the things that some of the diplomats i spoke with yesterday are hopeful for is that perhaps if things are successful in this round of talks, which is expected to last 3 days, perhaps there could be the announcement of another session of intra afghan piece talks or dialogue, the last one of those meetings happen and in mid july and those talks have really just kind of stalled out. there hasn't been much momentum. now the fact is, the taliban really has the wind. that is fact, they're taking over more and more territory and the diplomats i was speaking with yesterday really were wondering if the taliban was serious about coming here and negotiating and listening to these envoys that are trying to get them to come up with some sort of a piece plan, so everything really very much an open question right now as to what exactly will

happen today. we do know is this is the 2nd day and what is expected to be to be 3 days of talks and the diplomats, although they're not really speaking publicly about what's going on in the meetings, are trying desperately to come together and get some sort of a plan some sort of a formula for a peaceful solution to what is going on in afghanistan onto other news and wildfires in algeria have ripped across its mountainous regions, killing at least 65 people, 28 of those with soldiers who died during rescue operations. the details and this report from lord manley it's a desperate situation from branches to plastic containers of water locals using whatever hand to smother the flames. kobuck you to we are fighting fire to protect at least the houses we evacuated the elderly and we stayed as you can see. well, no, it's all i took a moment catch mission. as you see, there are 5,
