4:03 pm
you mentioned that the biggest does she are mosque in kandahar. we know that the hospital had a lot of casualties brought to it so that number could rise when it comes to casualties of dead. certainly at the moment just over 30. i think it's significant because kandahar folly is the heart line, the birthplace of the taliban. you've never had this kind of attack carried out there before. so i think it is a message again, we haven't had any claim of responsibility as of yet, but certainly it does fit into the pattern of operation that we've seen over the last couple of weeks here. particularly i so let in afghanistan, stepping up, it's a tax on the toner, bon, on minorities, these kinds of a targets sending the message that you know, the town keep saying, it's the only group that contained the security here. and this is certainly a challenge to that. area and and the taliban. empower now for 2 months. having retained a power for 2 months now. i sold kate clearly trying to undermine them. can the crew of the taliban put a lead on i so k one at the same time time trying to govern

4:17 pm
these are daily buses are coming to the border and picking them up whenever they actually make it to, to cross through the green border. so in much actually in, in a twist, you would say that this is about a, giving a, giving legal grounds for new operations. stronger legal last for the operations of the, of the border guard school. otherwise, are facing a real human side in crisis at mounting up on the border my it, while rights groups have criticize this, of course, because under international law, anyone seeking international protection must be given access to the assign and process even if they have crossed the border illegally. is there any effective recourse for, for the people, for the migraines or refugee seeking international protection and important a fallen is a, has been a accepting asylum seekers before that in this particular situation. it apparently, i mean the. busy government in poland is,
4:18 pm
is responding to the logic of the hybrid threads that is being purposefully a waged by, by lucas shanker version that deeper are flown into blue bellows and an assisted by the border guards and also abused according to other reports on the crossing of men in various unpleasant ways and also they are put into danger, put in the woods in the swamps which are otherwise not that you know, polish cars are not able to control and several dead people that bodies appeared that people off of the people who are lost worse include lives were lost as of the low temperatures and, and being lost in the woods, not being picked up by the police cars. right. this has certainly create attentions with the european union. and there's been some talk in poland and even hungry of an e. you pull out as a result of these tensions. is it a bluff when, when it comes to poland or is there a real possibility today that they could exit the block? no, there is no. there is no possibility of exiting the blog to the contrary. polish government
4:19 pm
strategy seems to be to stay in the block and cause trouble to be the the troublemaker, the sovereign, this power. it is bad news for poland, stability, and the future with this government. i wouldn't be, i couldn't be harsher or with, with, with my words of criticism towards the policy that they're pursuing. but it's definitely nerd. it's flirting with the idea, but not applying their the, of any exit. but it's putting a lot of burden on the you as a block out. thank you so much for talking to us about new. thank you for your inside vote. check. she belsky, editor in chief of visegrad, inside joining us there for more. so we appreciate your time. thank you. a man accused of killing 5 people with a bow and arrows in norway has been placed in psychiatric care. a court ordered the 37 year old dain be held for at least 4 weeks, is admitted carrying out the attack on wednesday night in the town of cones. barrick li say he was known to have frequently sought medical health to the u. s.
4:20 pm
now in the biden administration has issued a report on how it plans to protect american families from the economic risks of climate change. parts of the u. s. have been experiencing extreme weather, including wildfires and hurricanes. in february, a cold snap in texas led to widespread power outages, causing an estimated $10000000000.00 in property damage. the 40 page document comes ahead of the un climate change conference to be held in scotland next month. that's bringing our white house correspondent, kimberley hancock. my for us in washington, so tell us more. kimberly about what's in the biden administration's plan to, to deal with this climates crisis. i think what the main take away from this plan is it's approach. in other words, the biden administration through this plan seeks to show that essentially every aspect of the u. s. economy that touches ordinary lives. and also businesses is affected by climate change, whether it be extreme, whether in the form of flooding,
4:21 pm
drought, or even wild fires that all of this has an economic impact. and as a result, this report essentially is a whole of government approach. in other words, this is how this is going to meet the goal of the, by an administration to cut greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent, by the year 2030. so the main criticism has always been in the united states that this comes at the risk of jobs, then this is a plan that essentially a really cuts that argument down. in other words saying this is the plan to mitigate those concerns. so that is what is being laid out person biden is headed to the be kind of meeting in glasgow in just a few weeks. kimberly a lot of support in the international media horseman at home. it's a different story, is me. oh, yes it is. ah, well, what the challenge is for the, by the administration of it is of course,
4:22 pm
putting these words into action and that's where the challenge is for this white house, given the fact that they're headed to this un climate summit. and right now what the by an administration has, is a very good plan, but it needs congress to pass this plan into law in order for these commitments to move ahead. and so that is the problem for this white house. it's fearful that not only may this not get passed, but this may not get past it at all and let alone before this international summit . so this is the challenge. still the white house pushing very hard. in fact, 13 cabinet members will be attending in glasgow. scotland to show the priority that this white house is taking when it comes to climate change. kimberly thank you very much for that. kimberly. how can you sound white house correspondent? oh, i'll sterilised prime minister says he will attend the un climate summit in glasgow later this month. it's got morrison had initially threatened to skip the comp $26.00 event in scotland. it comes as his conservative government tracy's global pressure to cut carbon emissions. australia is one of the world's largest coal and
4:23 pm
gas exporters, and as long resisted adopting a carbon neutral target. it's not just about hitting that 0, that's an important environmental goal. that what's important to the strategy is economy goes from strength to strength and the livelihoods in the lives. the destroying scenario, particularly in rural and regional areas, are able to go full with heart and with confidence. and that's what my plan will be all about. and i look forward to furthering those discussions in the weeks ahead that a country that currently made smallest greenhouse gases is china and it seems, is leader, she ging being may not be going to the you and kind of conference in glasgow. jenna hall has more on that from london. he says, any kind of deal won't work without chinese involvement. china is actually the pivotal to the world's effort to tackle climate change. in particular, the effort to keep level warming to within one and off degrees of pre industrial levels. and what china does, absolutely, matt, as it is by a country mile,
4:24 pm
the biggest carbon emitter 27 percent of global emissions come out of china. now as to how significant this news that president, she may not be coming. this is about. this is quoting anonymous sources. festival china hasn't confirmed it, tellingly though nor have they denied it, but it's worth pointing out the president, she hasn't traveled to a number of big international meetings recently. he wasn't at the general assembly in new york last month. he's not planning to attend the g 20 in rome in a couple of weeks time, just ahead of glasgow. and private campaign is, will tell you that because of that, they weren't really expecting him to turn up anyway, what matters? they say he's that in his place, china sends negotiate his armed with a proper mandate to be able to reach a deal around the table at cop $26.00 to move on from china's already stated aims and targets to inject from fresh ambition into them. as is required of all the
4:25 pm
countries attending, of course, a 100 leaders will be their president biden included. and it is upon that hope that a deal can still be done in glasgow that the success of cop $26.00 rest. and that will be judged on whether by the end of it, that one and a half degree target is still deemed to be alive. and that is really down to china right now for a check on the world, whether his rom, grease is being hit hard moment by the weather is a slightly revolving storm. it's been named, is the 2nd one in a week in this one. i think worse in the last, the rain is falling heavily. coffee was 140 is all of actor walked. i was average unsurprising. there is flooding in the islands. doesn't look particularly bad, but this is just one example actually extends across the whole of greece. this is athens, for example, the st flooding here, power cuts, of course, as a result of this and not just athens, go up to the salonica as a most powerful grease are still at risk from this. and just north of that wrapping
