8:01 pm
i just didn't just look at them just it was the us president vows. retaliation for the ice is k claim to terror attack, which also killed 30 to us service personnel. we will not forgive we will not forget we will hunt you down to make you pay. ah, good morning for moscow is now 3. i am on saturday here. it's 430 i am in afghanistan, which is really from a devastating bomb attack in the capital. in the now taliban run country, the african health ministry says $170.00 people were killed, including americans, some $200.00 more were injured. the pentagon now says that only one explosion took
8:02 pm
place despite on thursday the u. s. defense press secretary claiming the 2 blast head cobble airport, the regional affiliate devices, known as islamic state hold. a sam quickly claimed that it was behind the atrocity . just a warning that there awesome graphic images coming up next. early report suggested that one of the last happened at an entrance to the airport as afghans waited in line to be processed to fly out, bodies were thrown into a nearby store, drained and explosive. vast is said to have been used in one of the attacks. the other bloss supposedly shook an area around a hotel where british officials were processing afghans to fly to the u. k. 13 us service members were among the dead love with $28.00 taliban members. it's also know now that 3 british citizens were killed including a child. now another warning, there is some more potentially distressing pictures to show you. covered bodies of victims have been laid out in the streets with grieving families identifying and collecting their last loved ones. so they've been
8:03 pm
looking to do what was the wasn't working for money, no money people waiting on british people that doesn't work properly and didn't like the help of some plus. 2 1 like 20 people of the didn't tool again plus one you people like $3060.00 people that people have a know like have no legs off season where i'd go. df who's in cobbled, told us how the city is faring after the tragic events. things have calmed down somewhat here in capital though that is relatively speaking. we are hearing god far endless guns,
8:04 pm
but single shots coming from all areas of the city as we heard that throughout the night will with the taliban as we learn, so to speak. cleaning house, they launched city wide search door to door inspection house to house searches looking for i says k members, isis k, that is isis, is affiliate here in i'm gonna start with whom the taliban has be. that was for, for many years now. and who i believe to be responsible for the attacks at the airport. we will do our hearing the explosions that we had yesterday get coming from all areas of the city. but today those searches that the taliban launched, those do to do inspections. they have continued. we had, we have heard from, i'm official sources from our contacts here that as many as a dozen ice slides as well, either court or killed. during these searches, the taliban has published the images of at 3 suspects. i suspect that it is
8:05 pm
captured on the approaches to the airport of capital, believing that they were planning to carry out more attacks at the airport. and this is something that the united states its allies as well as the tide. i believe there is a high chance of more attacks security at the airport, both on behalf of taliban and us troops. they have inactive, maximum security. they expect more attacks to happen. not that that has scared away the crowd. the thousands and thousands of people would crowd around the airport at the check boards and the of the, the gates, the feds is trying to get it to the airport, queuing, desperately shopping and pushing for days a days weighted paper. some of them believe that there is a real threat to their life that there will be consequences if they stay behind. you perhaps vengeance from the data for their work with foreign forces or foreign
8:06 pm
will get stations irregardless of taliban assurances that no one, no one will be touched. the united states is also now changed its course events. what it believes happened. it says that there wasn't a 2nd car bombing. there was just the one suicide bombing at the north gate. 170 people almost killed almost 200 wounded. to tell you how tightly pressed together, how tightly packed the crowds were for a single suicide bomber. but presumably a suicide this to have killed and injured so many isis is reportedly also come out with its own version of that they say their suicide. bob managed to penetrate old security checkpoints, leading to this final checkpoint just outside the airport man by both taliban fighters. as well as us servicemen. as i said, the threat to ease persisted both the taliban and the united states. as allies
8:07 pm
believe there could be more attacks, they expect more attacks. and the taliban says the situation will be result than to look until the crowds dispersed that is unlikely to happen until the end. the end of the evacuation slated for the 31st of august where i guess day if there were the following video was apparently filmed right after the attack and it was sent to us by a witness. the man who filmed it was just meters away from the side. here's what he told us. this was something that we are living in probably like for 20 years or more than that. i hadn't witnessed christine, that hurt our eyes. i was alert full of tears and also we couldn't breathe. the oxygen was all like good. there was no oxygen at that time. after that, when that happened,
8:08 pm
the americans just shot the highest. i mean, they opened the guns at the people. there was only one exam and that was near the explosion area. so when they tried to push me and like i really tried to reach my aunt and her. but i couldn't dave me and i thought that my aunt and her children's drug 10 piece or they are maybe god forbid, they might be dead by now. so when i went there and saw them, i was really thankful for that that they were like, we saw may and many dead bodies. i like maybe more, more than 30 or 40 people were laying beer dead. i mean, it was a really bad scene. i mean, when i saw them, i just didn't that just don't look at them. just look at it was. so, i mean,
8:09 pm
this is very bad for sure. more unsettling video shows covered bodies lying in the street ahead of the atrocity britain, the u. s. and other western nations had been warning that nationals about the threat of a severe terror attack, advising them to avoid the airport of the witness we spoke to says the afghans have been left to fend for themselves. the course we feel abandoned. that's because you all these people, those who are trying to get in there for they are having some documents that, that they can go. but the people like actually doesn't have anything. all these you have him do and the media is in the news store. lots of them doesn't have any legal documents that they are trying to get out. there are like more than $20000.00 if we have to. but right now, this thing is all messed up automated. i don't know why the americans are not processing then anymore. but lots of people just like us are striking and hearing.
8:10 pm
and i know everyone is trying, you know, just to get out of this country of this situation and run from taliban. so yes, we left abandon, we are left behind. we just want, you know, to get out of this country as soon as possible, before you know the situation and get more critical. many of the injured are now in hospital some though fighting for their lives. here's how one survivor described his experience of the blast. then i had applied for the vision and the poor. this invited us to come near the door. i was near the gate when the explosion occurred. i saw myself fall into the ground and when i stood up, i told the last one side of my abdomen and then they brought me to hospital is one of the wounded. the splinter groups said to be behind 1st, a terrorism has been active in eastern afghanistan and also pakistan and launched
8:11 pm
a savage campaign of bloodshed when it was founded in 2015. that with more details on the group, he is, he goes down of the dreaded name of ice. it had all but vanished from international headlines. but now, amid the afghan power vacuum, the terror group has apparently struck again the. the double strike right outside couple, airport killed dozens. american politicians had been warning, an attack was inevitable, but to no avail. every day were on the ground is another day. we know that ice case seeking to target the airport attack both us and allied forces and innocent civilians. as we conduct these operations, we are sustaining the highest level of vigilance for an attack against the airport by isis k or another terrorist group. or commanders on the ground have taken every step they can to prepare for such an attack. isis k is an afghan off shoot of the
8:12 pm
same tory as his law. me state terror group. it's based in correson. hence the letter k in the abbreviation with over 2000 g. hardy's committed to its terrible cause. the group targets have ghana stones most vulnerable with the the if you think this may have been isis case law strike at the exiting foreign troops
8:13 pm
before a happy union with the taliban? well think again. the 2 groups are sworn enemies with the taliban just not radical . enough, in the eyes of isis k, the islamic emery strongly condemns the bombing targeting civilians at cocoa airports. the explosion took place in an area where us forces are responsible for security. the bottom line is isis k presents a massive security and reputational challenge for the taliban. given the taliban attempts to look more civil, humane and legitimate, we could conceivably soon see. i mean, strangers, it sounds a taliban lead anti terrorist operation, or isis k might become the perfect pretext for the us to negotiate at least some presence in talib, uncontrolled of ghana. and we did hear about this group, for example, and i believe, april 2017. when trump and essentially authorized the pentagon to drop the mother
8:14 pm
of all bombs in eastern afghanistan, i believe in the non ga har province on ices 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. this group actually is a direct byproduct of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. it grew out of the pockets donnie taliban who were a disgruntled tale bon members who wanted to carry out attacks on us targets inside pakistan and afghanistan. one of their most spectacular attacks was on camped camp chapman, u. s. military base where they used a c. i turn coat to attack us soldiers. there are several. busy other attacks on american assets and this all led to a rise of terrorism inside pockets on directly related to the u. s. presence and afghan. as dan, 6 years ago, the pakistani taliban, which was widely suspected of being used by the african government,
8:15 pm
backed by the u. s. against pakistan, turned into isis k central. it's the same thing as isis. so most viewers with no flemish state of iraq and syria, isis, which was this group that took over in 2014, 2015, big swats of iraq and syria. and by the way, who were able to do that because of massive amounts of military equipment that the us left behind specifically interact. that's where they really got their weapons from. they went into iraq, took those home these and weapons and went back into syria. isis k, which is the islamic state of correson, 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 importantly, they've been fighting the u. s. and i bring up the point about the weapons because we just did the exact same thing and 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
8:16 pm
a very similar problem of what we saw 20142015 with the other isis i. c. k is far from being the only faction able to carry out such attacks. that's the warning from the afghan national resistance from which controls the pan ship valley that area and i was seen as the center of the anti taliban opposition. it's foreign relations chief believe's, the terrorist threat in the country right now with even stronger than 20 years ago . it could be, i says, cables we think there are, there are other elements plan. the attacks might have perpetrated such attacks against us soldiers and was a terrorist attack on the watch of the taliban. a group that says we are able to provide security. and now in one day we see numerous terrorist attacks happening on the watch. unfortunate b international terrorism and san is much stronger compared to 2001. this is something that the national resistance front of afghan on has been saying for the
8:17 pm
past year. we believe the international community should help our efforts to combat or national terrorism and afghans in 1900 the, to the international community, abandon the dentist. and we saw how african son became a haven for terrorists groups. the same will happen if the international community abandoned canada into 2021. there's no pose threat towards everyone. no one is exempt. and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world or the eastern las, he's also managed to speak with a taliban spokes person on a range of issues including fighting drug trafficking and the threat posed by potential resistance forces. the language, sorry, really sorry about what happened, a couple add port for our part. we've taken measures to avoid these unwanted events . of course the responsibility lies with the americans. they tell people to gather the field. they say we will take you out. there was hustle and bustle. the
8:18 pm
americans opened fire at people. many were trampled and crushed. many died by august the 31st. the americans must complete the evacuation of their employees for the mall. as for the pansy hair, it's not a big problem. there were only 2 people to who would like to continue the war. amory la seller and applewood masoud, we've repeatedly appealed to magnitude to resolve the existing problems through negotiations. and there is no need for a military confrontation, we've not received an answer to our calls, and that's not a problem either. or force is a station nearby pension here to keep the situation under control or more below. the current situation is entirely dependent on the afghans and no one else. we're not going to become a threat to the states bordering us using the g o strategic factor. we have good relations with tajikistan is becca stan minister on pakistan. bron china. i can
8:19 pm
assure our neighbors that they should not fear any threats, harm or damage from our territory. the law has for drugs. we have a far reaching plan to prevent drug production. currently, about 3000000 afghans predicted to drugs. this is this side phenomenon for us will try to nullify the cultivation and production of drugs in 2001 the cultivation and production of opiates would not eradicated work in this direction as well. in some provinces, the sewing and collection of drugs is still ongoing. and here we need cooperation not only with the countries in the region, but also with other interested state. thursday was also the american military's deadliest day in a decade in afghanistan, with 13 personnel killed and 18 injured. when a journalist asked joe biden, if you plan to speak to the bereaved families, he chose to keep silent. the
8:20 pm
meantime, precious building for the us secretary of state and to republicans in the house of representatives of introduced articles of impeachment, accusing antony blank and failing to properly advise the president and of abandoning american interests in afghanistan. the withdrawal debacle at its fall out of saint joe biden, and as administration come increasingly under fire, more on that next from correspondent john hardy. president biden has given approval to his military commanders to really go after isis k. i says, course on. because of what happened yesterday. so the president saying the military can go after isis. what that will mean? how that will play out remains to be said, isis k or isis course on claimed responsibility. and today they're really continues to be some of the back and forth between the taliban and us officials over who is
8:21 pm
ultimately to blame for the security breach. you heard the taliban spokesman talking about that it was really the, the u. s. security failure as the u. s was responsible for guarding the entrance to the airport, but the us maintain that it was the taliban failure for even allowing ice a service to get through and basically infiltrate the crowd. regardless, the evacuation effort continues along with as president binding said, the hunt for those responsible for thursdays attack the deadliest day by the way for us forces in afghanistan in a decade. president biden said the us will hunt down those responsible though. this also comes after just a few weeks ago, the president essentially lauding america's success in the region mission to degrade the terrors, tread about cod in afghanistan and kilo some have been lot was a success. i believed that our presence in that gas dance should be focused on the reason we went in the 1st place to ensure f canister would not be used as a base from which to attack our homeland again. we did that. those who carried out
8:22 pm
just attack as well as anyone who wishes america harm. no. this we will not forgive. we will not forget we will hunt you down to make you pay. so certainly some contrasting statements there from the president and pentagon official said today by the way, there are specific, incredible threats remaining in afghanistan, including the possibility of more attacks. now whatever the outcome of the ongoing evacuation effort, it is certainly an extremely chaotic and messy situation for the united states. and of course, for the biden administration. the president, coming under fire from republican leaders and officials calling for his resignation and saying that he ultimately bears the responsibility for what happened with some lawmakers. he's been going so far as saying he has quote blood on his hands. if any america is harmed or killed and not safely evacuated,
8:23 pm
or if any of this military equipment or weapons are used to harbor kill an american, the blood is directly on jo biden's hands. this will destroy what's, what's left of nato, because the u. s. has been so unilateral and so clueless that mean for, for the president i'd states to be rebuked in the house of parliament. that's the 1st time it's ever happened. joe biden has blood on his hands. this heritage, national security and humanitarian disaster is solely the result of job biden's weak and incompetent leadership. he's unfit to be commander in chief. it is in raging and joe biden is responsible. it's now clear beyond all doubt, but he's neither the capacity nor the will to lead. he must resign or to be clear, president binder remain steadfast. the u. s. should continue to withdraw from afghanistan and effort that started by the way, during the obama administration and continued through the trump administration. and keep in mind it was president trump who negotiated deal with the taliban to basically lay off us trips as us troops were being pulled out of the country. and
8:24 pm
that evacuation effort, of course, continued, and the overall mission continued still undoubtably. all that said, this will likely be a stain on the bite and presidency. the blame game is in full effect, and certainly a lot of accusations back and forth. officials here in the united states and certainly internationally with this effort ongoing. some views on that then legal analyst, jennifer de master and conservative commentator ad martin believes biden's handling of the afghan pull out has undermined america's geopolitical position. the global community as lots trust and faith, and joe biden, in his administration, a large truck now in the united states of america. despite the victory of the games and united states military job, i have managed to completely unravel and unwind that in a matter of months, putting our military in women's lives in danger. you know, biding can get up there and say, all he wants to cameras will hunt you down,
8:25 pm
will get you. but he lots of credibility not only this rate than the, the euro, our enemies, but he's a lot of credibility from our allies as well. i don't know how somebody is able to do that and 9 months have been administration, but i don't think anybody is surprised that it would be under the binding ration. we're watching the bible presidency deteriorate before our eyes. this president is not handling this well and everyone knows in america and the people in the rest of the world know it. so it's actually a very dangerous time. i hope the present is careful and slow and methodical. but right now what we're portraying is weakness. and uncertainty, he says at the end of his speech, and now i'm allowed to ask the person, and course as i was instructed and right now, china is looking at taiwan and bad guys are looking at america and saying, let's take advantage of this really weak, really embarrassing moment in american life, it's a big concern. on another development,
8:26 pm
the british foreign office is struggling to explain how sensitive documents identifying africa workers for the british and the see and cobble were left behind . a british journalist found the documents lying on the ground in the capital diplomatic district. some of the people on it already left off scottish down, and the journalist did manage to track down 3 families to the british army did then rescue. but it's still unclear what's happened to, to individual's name does embassy job applicants. we have worked tirelessly to secure the safety of those workforce and glued and getting 3 families to safety. the draw navarro embassy was done at the base of the situation. capital deteriorated, every effort was made to destroy sensitive material. and the british defense ministry is also assisting in the evacuation of pets from cobble. some $200.00 cats and dogs will soon be rescued, while the fate of those afghans whose names were left behind at the embassy remains unclear. international affairs commentator, marco gothic told us that those people named on the documents could face reprisals
8:27 pm
from the taliban. clearly significant in terms of the attitude of those who failed to destroy those documents. it's also significant for those whose names are on the document because obviously they are off in some danger from those who see them as traces or allies of the enemy. so i would say yes, definitely worry for those people on those lists. well, it could be a collective power. this people who simply ran, looking after their own interest, but it could be a collective pay out some times. the main consequences obviously will be for those people on those lists to have got out that's they're the ones who face the consequences, not the ones who didn't care enough to hide their names. i think that they're more endangered from the families of those who lost relative to the u. k. and us forces, i mean those are the people who will want revenge in the culture of the area. so those are the straight, depends on where these documents have ended. up as far as the taliban are concerned,
8:28 pm
we should bear in mind that they don't really have an interest in actually killing us and u. k. personnel because they are fully aware of the cost because if they do a whole new boom bus from washington is up next to say off the which i'll be here to update you from the moscow duty revenue watching this weekend. thanks for choosing the ah, ah ah ah,
8:29 pm
i look at the low the bull bull economy. say what's happening as the goal low ball bang, perpetuate there. lowball money trying thing. me only one main thing is important for not as an internationally speaking, that is a nation's allowed to do anything. all the master races and then you have the mind nations who are the slave americans. brock obama and others have had a concept of american exceptionalism. international law exist as long as it serves american interest. if it doesn't, it doesn't exist by turning those russians into this dangerous go. you man, that wants to take over the world. that was a culture strategy. so yawn i english v i v. i not
8:30 pm
leashed. it off in one tablet block, nato could. it's our, we move east. the reason us had germany, it's a dangerous, is the lie. the sovereignty of the countries, the exceptionalism that america uses and its international war planning is one of the greatest threats to the populations of different nations. if nature, what is founded, shareholders in the united states and elsewhere in large companies would lose millions and millions or is business and businesses good. and that is the reality of what we're facing, which is fascist. this is been by someone business so you can't afford to miss. i'm rachel bluff branch a bore and watch.
