8:02 am
a threat of that nature earlier in the week. nothing has really eventuated after that, the telephone scene to special forces to secure the perimeter. but still western nations incredibly worried about this. actually telling people not to come to be a force we know about 1500 us passport holders remain in cavil, were meant to be evacuated. we understand that they stuck into 2 out of the why, if you will missions with the ascending helicopter to try and retrieve these people and get them to the airport because of the threat. tell about also saying to us, we're also trying to secure the parameters. we're also at risk to i so we also understand that they've got to kind of new strategy to get people and we were witnessing that gifts today with their putting people on buses, essentially pre facing them at different places around cobble checking that they've got the paperwork they need to get through and then taking those buses as kind of a streamlined process to get past the taliban. that had been working quite well.
8:03 am
yes. today but then we understand last night that the taliban started stopping some of those buses on route to be a force and checking people documents via whether or not some people say they didn't get through after that. but we understand that the us and the taliban have a deal with a telephone or on districts. instructions not to let anyone through without a passport, without a green card, without verified documents. and there's some confusion about what a verified document looks like. let's take a quick look at parts of the wider situation and in the last few days, particularly we've seen pictures from people of people, enough kind of stuff struggling to get money out of 80 ends and from the banks. and of course, there is a wider situation financially as well. just talk us through what the financial situation looks like over the coming days for people when, if you want to talk about a crisis point, at least in counsel the most visual crisis point to the west is the airport. but the ask and the biggest crush, the point is money and the economy. and what is going to happen?
8:04 am
how is the taliban going to run everything? when many western nations, the i, the world bank are starting to freeze funds on them. as a day to day mission, prices of food have started going up, especially in the south. the banks being close to 10 days they are in new york and gets today. but you could only get up $400.00. the world bank said yesterday, a hosting funding for all projects because they're concerned about the telephone takeover, especially when it comes to woman's rights. the problem with that is that according to a number of analysts, they say that the world bank actually covers about 30 percent of the government's budget, so that teachers salaries, that nurses, that the telephone says, you know, will bank funds run $2300.00 small hospitals. the process going to if you free, so fund, because you're concerned about women's rights. what does that actually mean to people on the ground? well, you know, struggling to get access to these types of basic resources. charlotte,
