2:04 pm
the worst impact will be toward the north. we look, we'll get some rain and some strong winds, though in tokyo. sammy, thanks so much. jeff now typhoon in far forcing the shut down of transport in eastern china. authorities have canceled flights in the chinese commercial hub of shanghai and neighboring coastal areas. they've also suspended railway services. large contain the ships have been removed from the ancient port. that's one of the world busiest shipping centers. so really, ronnie is a ship captain and the managing director of a shipping firm cold constellation during services. he explains the impact on trade and supply lines caused by the storm. those stacks of containers which are in the board already. so the 1st, because a couple of days ago, which would have already been done in black now, i expect as much as possible. again, 3 again to greenwich, stand up when,
2:05 pm
when there is no way of these, again, things are going to remain. so you would see some guarantees collapse, etc. if you ask me, it's going to be a really, really difficult going to be of a difficult time for the shipping traffic. i would say ideally it should be at least a week or more. busy deliberate ball, things even going to be normal. lot one being a lot of data center. i wouldn't be the chairman parish goggles, biggest liability, the refrigerator meats and fruits and medicines, chocolate coming out of regions in every day that can these huge deal because of the container in from the board in after they be stuffed and coming into the hall. but they're not able to get on the ships and move to the destination from the live off,
2:06 pm
but it should be the biggest challenge. and then of course that is what damage and also physical damage to the covers up get the highest respect, high up and collapses of what that means. and what along the board, because maybe downfall. so then what absorption so that my son damage to cobble. now there's been fierce fighting over the past few days between afghan forces in the harley bond. the group has now taken the nabi district in our province, according to local military sources. it's close to the border with pakistan, the african army is trying to haul to turn the bomb and farms. meanwhile, afghans of ended the 1st neither because you imposed by the government for that cold security reasons. all but 3 of the countries $34.00 provinces will now be subject to due restrictions. us defense secretary lloyd austin says he believes the african government plan is to consolidate security forces and major cities could
2:07 pm
help quell the to the bomb search. and i think the 1st thing to do is to make sure that they can slow the momentum and then and then be able to put themselves in a position where they can re take some of the games that the taliban, that some of the ground that they've lost so i think, i think from my engagements with the afghan leadership, they are committed to that and. and so we look forward to, to them making progress, they have, they have the capabilities, i have a capacity to, to make progress and to and to really began to blunt some of the taliban advances. i'll diplomatic editor jane's phase, joins us out live from cobble, james afghan officials in the past. have been talking about they've been saying, hey, look, you know? ground gets traded all the time in this conflict. when you listen to what lined
2:08 pm
austin says that's quite the sobering assess, and it sounds like they've lost more than they've been gaining. how are afghan officials reacting to that sort of message? well, i've got officials privately will agree with that. they believe that they are in some trouble that the taliban certainly have had the momentum on the ground in recent weeks. and that affects what's happening on the battlefield. it affects the perception among the african people and the afghan security forces. that being places where control has been transferred from the government to the taliban. just because people, when the taliban arrive put down their arms are not prepared to fight. so the african government, i think needs to get some more morale. and by doing that, it needs to consolidate its forces and try and move forward. initially though they've got to consolidate those forces to try and protect key urban areas. and that means they are likely, i think, in the near future to lose some more of these districts like nor i in, in coon,
2:09 pm
our province that we believe now has fallen to the taliban. and that's as a result of local sources. we've spoken to also some military sources who won't go on the record, not the taliban or the african government, talking about it at this stage. districts and i've got to start a pretty small places are about $400.00 of them. but this is somewhat important as a mountainous area, and it's strategically important because it's on the border with pakistan. and james has the curfew that sam poses help the government to toll and pose. it's controlled at night time. certainly that's the plan going forward. somebody, but to be honest, i think although the curfew was announced, it's going to take a few days for them to inform all the people in these $31.00 provinces. i don't think they're going to go out in a heavy handed military operational way until they make sure the people actually know about the curfew. and we understand that in the various provinces they're trying to inform people that there is going to be this curfew now. so although the
2:10 pm
curfew has been announced, i don't think it's really active right now. but certainly the reasons for the curfew. evidence overnight, there were 25 taliban killed in helmand province, according to the government in a government, an african air force, as strike, an incomparable providence. and remember, cobble, and the province around it is not going to be covered by a curfew. we have reports of 5 intelligence officials being killed in the province north of cobble city. we don't have confirmation official confirmation of that. although the african police a simply saying they found 5 bodies, they would say who they are. all right, thanks so much jane. the space there now military ceremony is being held in god's the antenna for the 2 turkey soldiers killed in northern syria. the vehicle was a tank on saturday in the back area. the defense ministry says turkish forces

2:12 pm
p g is increasing the frequency of its attack on the turkish military target. so in that sense, it was a little bit unexpected, i think from on cut out. all right, thanks so much so, so sorry about the security is being boosted into new jersey as capital out of plans, protest against the government activists. one change to the political system, including the removal of the parliamentary speaker, is also anger over the extension of a current of virus state of emergency until january the local officials have closed roads in an effort to prevent protesters from gathering. so i had an al jazeera show of military my, the russia put the naval fire power on display feeling the heat. we look at the latest challenge proven. i says, no, come tokyo and i,
