9:04 pm
i will get it or not. in a statement the taliban suit. africans who have worked with foreign forces should not be scared. it sees it hopes interpret his stay to serve their country. and if they do, they will not be threatened by the group interpreters we spoke to found that hard to believe is not a threat to thrash on thought of them. we cannot guarantee our lives with them. they cannot trust them. security is tight with the u. s. embassy refusing to release any information about who is on the flight when they will call them or arrive in the united states in order to protect those who are leaving us. with these mikes, expected to continue for the next month. the word, any information, further evacuation and showing that balance. sarah alan fisher has more now on the resettlement from the white house. well, we know that the 1st flights are on their way the 1st one left camilla round
9:05 pm
lunchtime. they are heading to dulles international airport, which is just south of washington. and the 2nd flight is on its way to london. they will probably align part once they arrive here in the us. they will be taken to fort lee, which is an army camp in southern virginia, that is where they will be processed for their s i v as they call them special immigrant visa. now initially there was around $4000.00 afghans and their families who would expect to go through this process. other countries have taken some of those numbers. so it's expected that the us will be dealing with somewhere in the region of $2500.00. and they can't process them in afghanistan quite simply because they don't have the resources, the able to do it here and 20, blinking as well as your bike has acknowledged that the us does or debt to these people and has to treat them properly. the united states has committed to helping those who helped us during our time in afghanistan over the last 20 years.
9:06 pm
and indeed, we've had very brave afghans who stood with with us, with our soldiers, with our diplomats, mostly as translators, and interpreters. and as a result of that service benefit from the possibility of securing a visa to come live in the united states were actively engaged in that process. and notably in relocation planning for those brave afghans and their families. some of the us wanted this to be managed process. we know the deadline, we know that the us troops are going to be off gonna stand by the end of august your byte and said he wanted to be by september. the 11th has been brought forward . what the didn't want was a desperate rush at the last minute. everyone remembers the famous scenes of the u . s. embassy, inside going at the end of the vietnam war, where people were being lifted off the roof by helicopters. we wanted this to be much more managed, much more dignified,
9:07 pm
and that is why these flights are starting to arrive in the us. well, let's just take your closer look at that operation to relocate those afghan and to produce we've been telling you about the u. s. loans to operation allies refuge to evacuate around the $18000.00 interpreters contract is and security guards. thousands of their family members have also applied for the special immigrant visa program. on friday, canada announced a similar scheme. several 1000 people are expected to be eligible. but it's a slightly different story and the u. k. former defense officials were related to the government asking it to do more to relocate africans who helped british forces . they say a number of applications for relocation have been rejected. i am abolla, said he, he worked as an interpreter for the u. s. army in afghanistan. he was relocated to the us as part of the special immigration visa program. he now serves as the programs ambassador at no one left behind

9:10 pm
we believe and we trust we embedding process. mr. biden said $2500.00 families would be a bach awaited to very for the a. and what do you see as far as the walk we used to live in virginia tonight. but again, besides give it in and fully use whether that'll be enough again, a fan and a might take them to the us for you, maybe doctor or mine and eagles, angela supposed to be. and that's one issue. the other will issue is the find out the family. there are thousands of other interpreters in word or will have their live family or working with the us army in the us force and again again. but they are not eligible for it because they will not have either in a continent or, or
9:11 pm
a recommendation letter with our to one of the do we know requirement of the process and, and the 3rd to be that can be, you know, get super wide there are not answering replying emails, most of the i'm because or they don't want to. okay. so it's not obvious. they are straightforward process, a lot of hoops to jump through and a lot of anxious people waiting. i'm wondering what support is there for relocation for these people once they actually reach their final destination? of so what is their final destination? there are some agencies like no one left behind. we are here, l families. there are other recent government agencies who, you know, where they, they provide them the health in need and in a year. all right. hey, thank you very much for your time. ah, i'm a dorothy, they're

9:25 pm
the sea levels have already doubled from $1.00 to more than 3 millimeters a year. in the past 30 years alone. not only have the u. k warmed by point 9 degrees celsius. it is also become 6 percent wetter. on paper that may seem a small difference. in reality, this is the effect. the infrastructure is simply unable to cope and there is no quick fix incite in the face of the elements. sea level will not be possible to reverse on, on a short time. so there is a commitment to sea level rise as started, which will consist over many, many hundreds of years. even if we stock all c o 2 emissions today. it is possible why the phenomenon of extreme weather across the continent. recent floods in western europe have reached devastation and rivers in germany, search to levels not seen in hundreds of years. the protection of
