on to avenues. in the meantime, security source is in afghanistan, say at least 37 people have been killed in dozens wounded in an attack on the largest shia mosque in the southern city of kandahar. it happened during friday prays there unconfirmed reports of 3 explosions inside the mosque. it follows an attack last week on another mosque in the northern city of condos. at least 60 people were there. let's get the latest with stephanie decker in cobble. so this explosion today in kandahar targeted another she at mosque bring us up to date with the latest yes will significantly you mentioned it. there were hearing reports from several sources and also i witnesses that several bloss were hard leading. i to believe that more than one suicide bomber were involved in targeting the most. yes, it's the largest she almost in kandahar kandahar is the taliban stronghold. it's heartland. it's where it was born. it said area that they have always said was extremely secure. it's the 1st attack of its kind in this area. so it is
5:05 pm
significant. it's also the 2nd tack in 7 days on a she a mosque. this is in the south of the country, the last one and couldn't do is in the north east. so a message here has still no claim of responsibility fully, but the taliban has already released the statement. they are blaming i so enough janice, dawn for this attack. and certainly it seems like an act of defiance. an uptick in the last couple of weeks of attacks against the taliban, against mosques against the minorities, and also civilians, of course, being killed in this, in what seems to be a concerning development in terms of the security situation. but, you know, i was talking to someone else early who told me that, well, this is nothing new for us. got his don and they asked the town about and now in charge, they used to be an insurgency group. but this is simply what with it. we've enjoyed for ever it's just the faces that change, but they're constant death for civilians remains the same. and the question now being whether the taliban who've been in power for 2 months now can, can keep ice okay under control while at the same time trying to govern the country . yes, it's new for them, isn't it?
5:06 pm
the language that their fighters know is, is one of fighting they've carried out attacks in the past. they're now having to use intelligence and use what we've seen a soup sceptically. also in missouri sharif today, we had a statement from the taliban that they managed to eradicate and i so a stronghold there, there have been raids in cobble as well, but they're not really dealing with a big sense of, let's say, geographical presence of the group volley they're dealing with sleep or cell, so you're gonna have to rely on intelligence. but many people will tell you that it's very difficult to do that because they blended. and also when, when the taliban came to power here, they released a lot of prisoners from jails. hundreds and hundreds of prisoners among them. hardened well trained. i so fighters and they just disappeared. and you know, all of a sudden, so these are the concerns moving forward. and i think the turban is taking it seriously. just recently, a fully node addressing it's fighter saying look within your ranks, look within signs for ill, for infiltration. so that gives you an indication they do realize that this is now
5:07 pm
is serious issue for them to deal with. thank you for that. stephanie decker. ly forced air in couple. meanwhile, thousands of people have been protesting at a border crossing between afghanistan and pakistan. that's been closed for more than a week now. well, not yet. i don't yet. they are conflicting claims about who has shot the border and why i kasanya official. see the afghan side had been close without notice. but afghan state media claim aid, twist shot by pakistani authorities. the shaman, crossing links pakistan. southwestern province of baluchistan with spin bogart in the afghan province of kandahar, come on hider as more from harry pour in pakistan. hundreds of protest are marched, are the deputy commissioner, all face in the border down of german watch tension. however, the deputy commissioner told them that the glory of the board was not from the buckets on the side, that it was the $1.00 bond who had closed that border in protest because of the

5:10 pm
one of them insist that i'm going to be president, or i'm gonna be a minister and they block the political process and they're stalemate and then frustration, and then violence flares. so this is a cycle that's a cycle as you say, but what we saw yesterday on the streets of bay, which we hadn't seen in a long time. and this is a sectarian dispute, of course. and history shows that it's always been very difficult to mediate. and resolve and resolve the sectarian disputes. how. how then do we move on from, from where we are today? and is this again, is the investigation into the report last likely to continue and can it yields anything positive for the victim, sammy's, those are all critical questions of for which there are no form answers. are there have always been sectarian tensions, as you said, but they've always been mediated on the short run things down, but then they flare up again. if the political balance is threatened, now we have elections coming up next spring, then presidential elections in the parliament. these are moments of decisive

5:20 pm
for being with us. roy, what does this law? i mean, the migrants and refugees who are going into poland were early, ready facing quite a lot of hardship. what does this law pass in parliament in poland means for them now, especially those coming from bella rules. well that what poland hopes to law will mean is that nobody will be allowed to leave valery, so nobody will be allowed to come to poland on it's by far the easiest and quickest route into the european union. and if these people need to travel on this law would prevent them from doing so, which is in direct reach of international and indeed european asylum of migration law and under international law. indeed, anyone seeking international protection has to be given access to the asylum process. even if they cross the border illegally, do the migrants and refugees have any effective recourse in poland. well, it's very difficult on to, to be clear about whether or not under this law they would have been effective

recalls. i think it's worth mentioning at this point. however, that these people on not people who are traveling illegally the army un declaration on the front, on fundamental human rights are also the refugee convention. and refugee protocols are very clear that people can travel, provided they apply for asylum on arrival in poland. well, in any country in their destination countries, the difficulty that we have here is that poll the polish government position, he said these people must not be allowed to travel that in breach of international and the law. and in terms of recalls, it's very difficult to see how any refugee or any person seeking asylum can then be forced back into barry's and can then attend to launch a legal challenge against poland. really, the people who have control here on the people who have the ability to do anything about this, or the european union itself. and perhaps the why their international community. right. but tell us a bit more about these people or whether they're refugees or migrants who are trying to make it into the european union. what have conditions are,
5:22 pm
had they been facing on this journey? well, depending of course, on where they set out on the journey has been incredibly difficult for virtually all of these people are people traveling from as far waves as afghanistan have made extraordinary difficult lansing crossings. they have crossed seas in which we know over the past 56 years, hundreds and indeed thousands of people have drowned arm once they arrive in countries. i cannot speak directly about the conditions specifically in belarus, but they are in a new country where they know very few people where it's very difficult for them to find work. it's very difficult for them to find money. the accommodation in which they live. we know from turkey, we know from other countries is in a terrible state. these people have very few rights in these countries. and what we now see is a situation in which, whatever the reasons are, these people feel that they lighten berries are impossible to continue. which they
5:23 pm
have no source of income, it's very difficult for them to our food water. winter is coming, shelter is extraordinarily difficult to come by. and these are people who have begun from countries in which their lives are in immediate danger and to be ice. the destinations that they've reached so far, the lights are still in danger. thank you so much for talking to us about this roja keith joining us here from. great, thank you for your time. thank you very much. and protests have erupted across italy as a tough anti corrosive ice measure comes into force. the new rule requires old workers to show a green pass to go to work. protests is marching outside. the port of trista held package insisting no green pass, no discrimination. the passport to holder has been vaccinated or as i said, negative again scope with 19 the australian city of sydney will open up to fully vaccinated international travelers. next month, the country closed its borders in march last year, allowing entry, almost exclusively to citizens and permanent residence. they were required to undergo a mandatory 2 week hotel quarantine at their own expense,

5:28 pm
there was a was sent out, the army of fema will be here. all the pentagon would be everybody would be here and they are resolved as being in less than 6 months. but by been a black city is a whole different story. 2 years after the majority, black town of flint resolved a 5 year long crisis with lead in its water bent in harbours, water is even more toxic. my water sounds bad. does it make you mad? yes, they does not take a bath, then a brush. our teeth and land it is, but with us i, we did the most tainted samples from homes here contained $889.00 parts of lead per 1000000000. 59 times the states. 15 parts per 1000000000 limit on thursday with residents lining up for bottled water. 3 years after the city discovered its taps were tainted, the state announced it would replace all of the cities underground, lead pipes within 18 months. this directive ensures that state government has taken

5:30 pm
the city has promises of $18000000.00 of the $28000000.00 it will take to replace all of its lead supply pipes. it will have to find the remaining $10000000.00 somewhere to finish the project on time. in 2023. john henderson, al jazeera, bent in harbor michigan. ah, again, i'm fully battle with the headlines on al jazeera, the british conservative m p. david amos has died after being stabbed repeatedly. he was meeting members of his constituency in a church, when a man reportedly entered and attacked him. i suspect has been arrested. john hall has moved from london at a certain point some time before mid day. a man is said to have walked into the belford methodist church in leon, see with a knife. so.
