10:05 pm
richard the board already drawn off guards are now claiming, and they have really radio for days from the fighting last night at their men in the dark of greenville dark town. richard, bordering down, i know, are you seeing that dollar bond flag that address? this is usually significant because the revenue from their transport of ga. gov that's collected at the border board. and the taliban of course, will take that as an add wanted. they also say that they have they have seen that, in fact, they've taken into custody. a dungeon, devolve on army soldiers and green, bought a dock and said they're firmly in control. well, the us will start evacuating afghan interpreters and other staff who help the american forces during the 20 year war relocation slides are expected to start this month for afghans who applied for the special immigrant visa program. white house
10:06 pm
has been under pressure from republicans and democrats to find a solution for tens of thousands of afghans who helped us and nato forces. we are launching what we are calling operation allies, refuge to support relocation flights for interested and eligible african nationals and their families who have supported the united states and our partners enough canister and are in the application pipeline. in terms of the specific numbers. i'm not gonna be able to provide those to you for operational and security reasons, but i can confirm that flight out of afghanistan for as the applicants who are already in the pipeline will begin in the last week of july and will continue. and our objective is to get individuals who are eligible, relocated out of the country in advance of the remove of the withdrawal of troops at the end of august or overland jordan. his holiness enjoined his knife lived now from washington and was gen. saki couldn't give us any specifics on the, the number of afghans that will be eligible for this program. but just tell us more
10:07 pm
about how it's supposed to work well, essentially about half of the 18000 or so people who worked as a translators, or interpreters with the u. s. military during the war are eligible to apply for one of these s i v's or special immigrant visas. and it's thought that about $9000.00 or so have started the process. it's not clear exactly how many people have made it to the point where they would almost be ready for the final round of consideration in order to get the visa but the end. but the idea is that this would be the 1st group to move to leave afghan, stand with these. with this, with the promise of having these visas in hand and being able to move to the united states at some point. now they also know that this is
10:08 pm
a completely voluntary process to even apply for these visas in the 1st place. and the rough estimation from the us government is that maybe a 5th or 6th of the people who are considered eligible simply or not interested. but there is no way of knowing because there's no mandate and you know, saying that people have to come forward and say whether or not they're going to apply their eligibility, basically says they can't apply it. that's what they choose to do. it's interesting rosalyn because we've been reporting about taliban tar territorial gains in recent days and weeks. and many people say this was inevitable in the aftermath of the u. s. withdraw from the country. but now that a major border crossing with pakistan off to taking territory around to duke is don to man. it's don and the iran as well. i mean, it has been a much debate or much discussion about this there in washington. while certainly there has been a lot of concern about what the taliban is doing,
10:09 pm
whether the taller bond is showing that it is committed to a peaceful law. civilian led government or power sharing with a civilians in cobble. and certainly even as recently as last week, we were hearing officials talk about how you see tal bond negotiators sitting down with their civilian counterparts to negotiate whether in doha or in some other location. and certainly you see that the u. s. still has an ambassador, is i'll make a little vod who is engaged as the lead us interlocutor for these talks. the believe is that there are those in the tall about leadership who see that there is a need to engage in a diplomatic fashion. but there is also a recognition that there are people perhaps lower down the food chain as it were, who were perhaps have their own vision for what a tall, a bon, once all the us military have left the country. what that afghanistan looks like.
10:10 pm
now are people saying that they are alarmed, they're not saying that, or they concern it's pretty apparent that they are, but they are really insisting that what the future is for afghanistan cannot be imposed by the us or by other nato countries that have been engaged in the war for the past 20 years. thank you. rosalind jordan in washington. thank you. the a what began as a protest against a former president jacob zoom, his jail sentence has turned into the west uprising in south africa in decades. some of the west writing is in durban, where shops are being loose, said warehouses that on fire and major roads blocked off at least $72.00 people have been killed in the unrest while they protested against endemic poverty. wealthy people have reportedly chanted plains and helicopters and have abandoned
