6:00 pm
of a 5 part series, highly re questions the neutrality of digital deductions. trust me, i'm an algorithm on a jessina, unprompted, and uninterrupted discussions from our london broadcast center on our jazeera. ah, this is al jazeera ah, hello, hello robin. you're watching the i'll just there and use our lives. well, headquarters here in the coming up in the next 60 minutes, they took calls on the taliban to put an end to violence in the country. as it says, the speed with which the armed group took power was unexpected. there are many lessons to be learned, and i tend to conduct a thorough assessment and nato's engagement enough. oh,
6:01 pm
taliban fighters inside a cobble, most for friday, prayers, hundreds have joined them and pledged allegiance. also shorter supplies and desperate for how pulse. but those in haiti, a struggling to keep up to the earthquake and malaysia king named former deputy prime minister, somebody called the countries new leader. and i'm, we're harding with 4th. another big blow for the final tennis major of the year. rough on the dall withdraws from the us open and will be sideline for the rest of the season with a foot injury. ah, welcome to the news. nato is held in emergency meeting on the crisis and of got his phone saying lessons must be learned about the speed that the taliban took over the country. so could he generally insult him? but he said that he knew the risks and pulling out troops,
6:02 pm
but didn't expect the government to fall so quickly, leaving people desperate to leave the country. the ice of the world, our own of guns, don't. we expect that all of us to uphold their commitments and assure that afghans does not. again, that have gone this on this, not again, because it's safe haven for international terrorism. the taller bomb must put an end to violence around the country and uphold different mental rights of all african citizens. men, women, and children tell about members have been seen alongside civilians for the 1st friday press since the arm group took control of afghanistan. the taliban issued guidance moms across the country saying they should use the sermons to appeal to unity. people in cobble reported seeing more worship as unusual, and their dress code restrictions were enforced. afghans trying to flee the country and facing the several obstacles, including taliban roadblocks and problems with paperwork. the calles at cobbler
6:03 pm
airport has continued on friday despite us and native pledges to accelerate the evacuations. while we have to correspondence looking at the story for this, our, the moment will speak to joe hall in london broadcast center, who's following developments with nato professor cross over to carla rob. broad is standing bry and ra brady. chaotic scenes at the apple. what 24 hours ago? things haven't really changed much have a it does remain pretty volatile pretty chaotic impacts. dalton. burke is news, a statement that spoke about the needs to continue with you back your way shouldn't pick up the speed of the evacuation. the importance of it for the nato allies, but yes, it does remain extremely chaotic. the us very much in control of the ad portion of the terminal building up the operating area, leaving the taliban on the outside of the terminal law. so at times setting up road blocks on the apple road leading to the terminal just to try to keep down the numbers of people heading that the tries to it is that people who doesn't don't
6:04 pm
have paperwork. who shouldn't be that to go back home. that doesn't seem to have been heated by that many people. there are also concern that when it sets up this road blocks, although it has given that guarantee of safe passage for people who believe they may be targeted or that may be reprisals for having worked with foreign forces in the past. that the taliban is actually looking out for maybe some high, high worth individuals, high target individuals, full reprisals. so that's certainly the concern of people trying to head to the apple, but they remain chaotic scenes. meanwhile, the civil aviation authority is looking at just when they might be able to lay on commercial flights. again, you got to remember the last sunday since that somebody could buy a ticket, go to the airport and check in and get a seat on up on a passenger plane out of cobble. since that has just been the evacuation flights and special chapters. now the civil aviation authority has said that they want to
6:05 pm
restart commercial flights, but it's all dependent. they say on if the us who occupied and control the terminal will let them do so. and as this evacuation continues, that does look unlikely. and when you consider that the u. s. is now considering is now talking about potentially going beyond the 31st of all, this deadline for us forces to be finally leaving afghan is done. does lead to the possibility that that might be commercial flights until after the end of this month, we simply don't know. so let's talk about what happened on friday, friday, prayers across the line. well, normally, and of course, these are the world's attention and the global attention, of course, on cobbles most. that's right. well the pres went ahead and they were relatively uneventful that were concerned that possibly the taliban was going to have a high profile presence. may have been on the doors of must, in insisting that people adhere to a strict dress code. that wasn't the case. but the taliban has urged
6:06 pm
a mom to pass on the message that the people should should really be looking for unity. they should not leave the country, they should pass on that message and also to correct what the taliban calls a negative propaganda, whatever that means. so it looks as though the, the taliban does recognize the importance of the importance of a mom's in trying to lay the face of the population. something else which is worth pointing out. the way that's been happening this friday outside of cobble is potentially some resistance armed resistance to the taliban. and if the perpetrators of this would have you believe this is the start of the fight back. although it remains to be seen just how serious they said, this is the country's defense minister, general bas mila bahama day. now it has to be said he still claiming to be the defense minister by default because the taliban hasn't johns to appoint his success
6:07 pm
to get their own defense minister. so you'd be more like the former defense minister, but there has been some fighting in the province of baghlan that's to the north of cobble and claims by this resistance movement led by this former defense minister that they've taken 3 districts. and that the province of backbone will soon be captured. it's a bold claim, but it is a backlit is close. interestingly, to the punch valley. now the pantry valley is traditionally the hotbed of resistance to the taliban. it was during the 1990. it was where the northern alliance that was that strong goals, where the 2000 to one fight back supported by the americans took place from so this, according to, to the general general miller. my holiday is the start of the fight back by his forces. it remains to be seen though, just how far this might go, or whether it could indicate that once again, this time could be in for a phase of a longer simmering low intensity conflict, of course,
6:08 pm
which it has been used to now for decades. while the brighten cobble force, thanks so much for the update, lets cars over to jonah hall in london has been monitoring watson yet install 2 burgers that say the secretary general of nato. we had some quite the top of this news, our jonah. what were the take home moments can stall, but build this meeting. remember, there was a meeting earlier in the week on tuesday bill. this is an ongoing sort of a show of post coordination by nato allies looking at the events in afghanistan. and it's an attempt, and they'll be many others i suspect to forward you a common approach towards what happens next. the priority, very clearly from mister bokes comments remains the evacuation. as rob was describing their 800000 people have been taken out so far since sunday, the job is far from done. nato has $800.00 of its own civilian personnel still on the ground. the dutch foreign minister during the course of this meeting said,
6:09 pm
people didn't know. countries didn't know who citizens were on, which plane is coming out to cobble such was the ongoing chaos there. but inevitably, when they meet these foreign ministers conversation must, i think, turn to events afterwards. morale would be pretty low. you'd have to assume among these ministers, european allies who went along with the u. s. decision to withdraw because they felt they simply didn't have the strength to stay without the us, but who feel that it was the wrong decision carried out in the wrong way. they've got it now figure out what to do next. they've got to look at the security situation. they've got to look at the possibility now that reprisals will start taking place from the by the taliban, against people who worked for nato countries and nato emissions. there's evidence that that is already happening. they've got to stop thinking about labors of improves that they can possibly try to exert on the taliban to keep them to rein them in to keep them from sort of reverting to taught mr. stoughton, but keeps talking about the gains over the last 20 years. and doing whatever they
6:10 pm
can to try and preserve those games, you're talking about things like development aid. i mean there's not really an awful lot they can do that. i think the chief thing that they can wrestle with must wrestle with is whether to recognize this group. and mr. stoughton books and diplomatic recognition has to be conditioned on how they behave and how they live up to the commitments of those commitments. he outlined as a, setting up an inclusive government, including women and minorities, protecting human rights, the rule of law and making sure the country doesn't again, become a haven for terrorists. and in the end, nato can say these things, but it's now peyton live is that there's really very little they can do to actively influence these events on the ground and even other important meet who's going on with that kind of stand as top of the agenda i'm sure was meeting between vladimir putin of russia, hosting anglo merkel in the final few weeks of her chancellor ship of germany before national elections there. of course that's kind of on top of the list for both countries. it's
6:11 pm
a very different reasons for very different reasons. i mean it's, i've got to stand drives, if you like, yet another wedge into relations between russia and put a germany, putin and merkle, knuckle is on her way out at the end of next month. this is a sort of farewell visit. they've disagreed over the years on a great many things. 16 years. she's been in power. he's been around a bit longer and will be quite a lot longer yet. the things will be on the agenda, not least, the imprisonment of the anti putin critic alexi novel me and of course, events in ukraine and bell roost. but yes, i've got to stand will be that it will be part of it's the reality is, and it is a deeply uncomfortable reality for nato allies like germany, that they can no longer influence events, but russia and china certainly can. they maintain their presence inside afghanistan, they maintain contacts with the taliban. and to the extent that i've got to stand
6:12 pm
is discussed at the table between these 2 that would be looking for merkel. perhaps we'll be looking for some basis, a cooperation, some reason to see shared interests in co operating. and i've got to stand in order to try and get russia to influence the taliban again to rein them and to prevent them from reverting to time to try desperately to retain some of the advances of the last 20 years. not least, of course, rights for women and girls, minorities, and so on. general in london, thanks very much for the update. well, in around 20 minutes time at 1530 gmc, i'll be speaking to nato secretary general against dalton berg about the situation in afghanistan. here on the news, our the german broadcaster deutsch avella says a family member of one of its journalists was shot dead during a house. such runs groups are urging governments to step up efforts to accurate and protect journalists in the country. the committee to protect journalists is warning
6:13 pm
that women are particularly at risk and it says that the taliban took power. 2 prominent female journalists have been borrowed from their jobs and they document the homes of media workers. rate is another tact while covering recent protests in july 11th, we'll see butler is a program coordinator with the committee to protect janice. he says many journalists are being talked by the taliban and those trying to leave a struggling italian folks in 2 days ago said that they were going to respect the free and independent press under lay down conditions. and we've seen the very prominent news program on taller news that continuing to operate, including heading out there are women reporters and having women, castro newscasters on the streets, can be a very different story. if it's not clear that the taliban, the militants who are on the streets in cobble or elsewhere around the country are
6:14 pm
getting that message. and they seem to have a lot to themselves. and so they are attacking journalists and beating journalists . and of course, we know that certain journalists are being sought out by the taliban. their homes have been searched and we know one case where a journalist was actually in the house at the time you ran out the back. when the tall on arrived and they fired after me, he managed to get away. other journalists have received phone threats. very prominent women, a journalist was told, you know, your time is up and she is gone into hiding. we've been trying to get her out so far, unsuccessfully. she has not been able to get through these barriers. facebook, twitter, and linkedin have tightened security across their platform to protect users in oregon. his phone book has added a tool, allowing them to lock down their profiles with a single click. now people who aren't friends won't be able to see that timelines or photos. and twitter says it's working with partners to fast track requests to
