1:02 am
bay's reports from the united nations. the u. m. has been spearheading a large humanitarian operation in the 2 months of the taliban to cobra afghanistan . 3.8000000 people have received food supplies in that period. but aid alone will not help as the countries in tar economy is now at the risk of collapse. the un secretary general antonio terrace says the situation is very urgent. this is that make or break moment if you do not act until afghans whether the storm and we'd soon, not only they but all the world will pay a heavy price, the taliban is acting. foreign minister says afghanistan's funds thought to total about $10000000000.00 should be immediately unfrozen or kept the american, the hanover, the, the shadow. however, this is so embarrassing that a huge country, like the united states of america, is freezing in our assets. instead of helping constructing our country and ensuring order,
1:03 am
diplomats tell me there's no way the u. s. and it's western allies will agree to unfreeze afghanistan's assets and hand that money directly to the taliban. but the u. n believes there's another solution to inject money into afghanistan's economy, and that's using trust funds set up, for example, by the u. n. development program or the world bank. and those funds can then be used to pay for vital supplies and salaries. already one such scheme is up and running, allowing a fund $15000000.00 to be accessed by hospitals and health care workers. james bayes al jazeera at the united nations senior taliban officials have been indo hard to meet u. s. and e. u officials, humanitarian aid, women's rights and diplomatic relations have been at the top of the agenda. so miss rob is in the category capital with more acting foreign minister of the afghan taliban government. mr. mckee, here in doha, spoke during a speech at
1:04 am
a center for conflict resolution about inclusivity inclusivity. he said is not a problem under the taliban. and he boasted about the fact that $500000.00 civil servants there worked under the former government, have not been fired, have not been placed under threat, have been told to come back to their jobs and are currently working. he said that passports are being issued again and women are part of that workforce. he was asked point blank and follow a question. does that $500000.00 strong civil service include women? and he said in one word, yes, he expanded on that then saying that they've been told to come back, those that haven't are still being paid their salaries as a show of good faith, a 100 percent of those that worked in the health care sector are back to work 50 percent of those that work in the education sector are back to work. so again, the rhetoric on point it would seem that the taliban may have turned a page. the rhetoric is very different from what we've seen in the past with regards to the role of women in a government under the afghan taliban. so these are potentially positive signals, but we have to remember that have gone on as a difficult,
1:05 am
somewhat impossible country to govern from a centralized place. a u. s. in u. k. a warning their citizens of a security threat in afghanistan capital, they've been cautioned to stay away from hotels in cobble, as been a recent rise in iso linked attacks. many foreigners left afghanistan now to the u . s. withdrawal in august. it some aid workers and journalists remain stefany decker has more from capital, the americans and the british warning against our people, staying away from hotels in the capital. one particular hotel was mentioned as you know, having a real security threat against we've heard about this in the last 48 hours or so. the taliban is taking it seriously. they beat dr. curt security also using their special forces to cordon off certain roads using sniper locations. the taliban main card that they played was that they could maintain security in this country that they were the only ones to be able to maintain security in this country. what we're seeing recently in the last, especially 10 days or so is an escalation,
1:06 am
is step up by iso, okay? that is the afghanistan branch of iso in terms of attacks. they started more until about the east of the country than they attacked mosque here in cobble just last sunday, and significant breach of security there. because you had senior members of the taliban meeting their suicide bomber blowing himself up. then you had that devastating attack on a mosque in canoes on friday. so now we have the security threat here in cobble. so i think it message of defiance and certainly ice. okay. trying to disrupt the taliban. the child about of course. now having to run a country, this wasn't insurgent group until just about 2 months ago, carrying out exactly the kinds of attacks that it's now having to try and prevent. ah, dozens of migrants remain camped outside a u. n. facility in libya seeking resettlement. they escaped from a detention center west of tripoli on friday. gods shot dead at least 6 people in

1:27 am
awarded to david con joshua angriest. and guido in bens, the 3 u. s. based economists, one for they work on drawing conclusions from unintended experiments or so called natural experiments that use real life situations to work out the impact of economic policy and other events. that kind of the university of california berkeley was awarded one half of the prize. the other half was shad by angriest from the massachusetts institute of technology and embeds from stanford university is now david cards. empirical contributions have improved our understanding of labor markets. his initial work challenge conventional wisdom which led to new studies and additional insights. josh language and kito imbalance have clarified exactly what conclusions about cause and effect that can be drawn from natural experiments. their framework for estimation validation and interpretation as being widely adopted in applied work. the combined contributions of the laureates have
1:28 am
completely reached shaped empirical work in the economic sciences already has more from stockholm. this prize, given to 3 economists, is in 2 parts. the wants of david called for his work on labor markets. how factors such as minimum wages and immigration effect jobs and the other 2, joseph unrest, and guido embeds for their work on natural experiments how real life situations can help determine cause and effect. in this case, in economics and for current research as the is 20202021. have given them one of the biggest, real life experiments in history. i think we should be very, very excited about this. i mean, so as with many other prices, they've already affected the how many people are doing their research. and those methods to understand causality can be used to study the effects of locked down can be used to study basically any type of effect. and that's what makes it so amazing
1:29 am
that has us understand causality, of course and effects. i what are the consequences of lockdown sun on hell on a kid? solid comes to cetera. so there are many, then there are many researchers now working on the topic of locked house and that, that's not exactly what this price me what this researchers are awarded for, but their methods are being used to address this question. so there we can obviously see a real, real time consequence of their work. so hopefully policymakers and governments and others all over the role will be using these insights to sort of make up come up with policies. another question had of this prize was that of equality with only 2 women previously having been given the nobel prize in economics. compare that to the current tale now of $89.00 men. the no well committee has promised to make the nobel prize as a whole more equal with 12 men and one woman being awarded prizes this week. they still have some way to guard polaris al jazeera stalker,
