mother in leon c. ah. we want to turn to afghanistan. now we are at least 41 people have been killed and dozens wounded in an attack in the country. this happened during friday prayers at the largest shia mosque in the southern city of kandahar. it's believe thou a multiple explosions inside the mosque. kandahar is afghanistan, 2nd largest city, and considered the birthplace of the taliban. stephanie decker reports now from the capital cobble. the explosions ripped through friday. prayers, reports suggest. several suicide bombers were involved in the attack. this alamo, there were 3 people. the 1st one entered and killed the gate keeper and the remaining 2 into the mosque. they were armed. i opened fire 1st and then all 3 of
them detonated themselves together. many of my family members were mounted there. then i wow. ambulance crews rushed to the scene. casualties mounted. this is the largest shia mosque in kandahar. the province is taliban heartland in the south of gaston, the groups birthplace and stronghold. and this significantly, the 1st attack of its kind here. it's the 2nd on a she a place of worship. in 7 days. last friday, she a mosque was attacked in conduce in the north east of the country. more than 60 people were killed as they to attended friday prayers. and i so suicide bomber entered and detonated his explosive. among them there appears to have been an increase in pace and geographical scope. and attacks carried out by iceland, afghanistan over the last couple of weeks or the taliban is always said that it is the only group able to maintain security across the country. but that premise is now being challenged. and despite the taliban saying it had the ice all threat under control, just a few days ago, the interior ministry giving
a press conference asking taliban fighters to be cautious among their ranks, hinting at concerns of infiltration, the hot de la de la berries. so that if somebody is found in any of army units linked to iceland, let it be known that the unit commander will be interrogated and the unit will be dissolved southfield. it's 2 months since the taliban took control of the country, having to adapt from insurgency to governance. and despite a diplomatic push abroad, millions of dollars of much needed international donor money are still being withheld. as the international community demands a more inclusive government and the protection of women's rights and those of minorities agencies awarding of the humanitarian catastrophe as the country is running severely low on cash. salaries haven't been paid in months. millions of people don't have enough to eat. and winter is coming all this compounded by an unpredictable security situation with new dynamics at play, stephanie decker, al jazeera cobble. when all the development of the russian president has urged
former soviet states surrounding afghanistan want to rush to officially recognize the taliban as its rulers. now speaking during a leader summit, vladimir putin, juan, the intern taliban government, is not a reflection of afghan society as a whole rush or a set to host the taliban and other afghan factions for talks on wednesday. if what nobody knows, the plug that gives us of we shouldn't hurry yet to officially recognize the taliban. we understand we have to interact with him, but we must not hurry him, disregard lima. we will discuss it and do consultations. we should however, maintain the process of the afghan reconciliation and seek the normalization of the situation in this country locally. meanwhile, the former taliban commander is appearing before us court on terrorism charges hygiene as you boiler is facing indictments in relation to an attack. enough got histone in 2008. it led to the death of 3 us soldiers, and their interpreter is also accused of kidnapping,
an american journalist and to afghan civilians. as your bill it was expedited to the us from ukraine last year. christian salumi has more now from new york. the defendant has ignacio beula is appearing before a judge in federal court. here in manhattan, prosecutors describe the 45 year old as a taliban commander, who they say is responsible for killing 3 u. s. service members and their interpreter as well as taking down a u. s. helicopter. but he is in court on those charges today he was actually charged. 5 for, for another incident back in 2008, involving the kidnapping of an american journalist and to afghan colleagues at the time that received a lot of attention in the united states. and the timing of this, of course, is interesting since the united states has just in the last week begun face to face negotiations with the taliban, including the demand that
a us citizen be released from their custody. but it should be pointed out that these latest charges were came after nazi beula was arrested last october in ukraine and brought to the united states. a grand jury proceeding was held here in the united states. prosecutors presented these new charges of the grand jury did find that there was evidence to go forward with the trial. so that's what we're seeing happening here today. the formal presentment of these charges which include material support for terrorism. even if he himself did not commit the acts that took down these soldiers under us terrorism laws, he can be convicted for material support because there was a murder of a u. s. national and deaths of citizens involved in this case, funerals have been hell for the 7 people killed in bay roots were street violence

and deb. so there were a wide range of people he wanted to speak to, and this investigation has the broad support of the lebanese population, because they not only want justice for the people who were killed in last year's explosion. but they want this as a demonstration. if you like that there is still some to some sort of rule of law in lebanon and an ability to hold people accountable. a government is called a day of mornings, or most businesses and government offices are closed. as bowler has said that it will not be dragged into a civil war, but a senior leader of the group. hashem. sure as a field in sad at the funerals today that we will not, that the blood of our martyrs be in vain and has bala has repeated the accusation. that cypress, from the lebanese forces her from the christine lebanese forces party, ambushed. she eyed has bola supporters as they came to a protest in this part of
