11:02 am
and i saw involvement. well this is the largest shia mosque in kandahar you mentioned there a significant because this is you know taliban hartline it is their birth place. it is where their leader is at the moment sir. really at the feet of the taliban leadership, i saw k iceland afghan, his don showing that a can carry out a brazen attacker. it claimed it over. it's saying that it used to suicide bombers, one of which good stuff up at the entrance of the mosque. the other one inside the mosque as people were, you know, carrying out their friday prayers. and it's the 2nd time now inasmuch as last friday we had one in conducing the northeast of the country. so you are seeing a pattern of ver, expansion when it comes to their attacks when it comes to areas. so initially they were focus east of the country. more so jalal abide. we had an attack here in cobble that it moved north and it came back to cobble and now it's gone south to kandahar. so a very serious message, i think hear from iceland, afghanistan,
11:03 am
saying that we can to stabilize what, what the taliban is always said in the sense that it is the only group to be able to insure a security of this country. and now that of course is something that's being questioned or so i, so in this country doesn't really hold a lot of territory. it's more operating the sense of sleeper cells. and there's also a concern about potential infiltration among the ranks of the taliban. and i can tell you we've just been outta going to couple of the ministries here and security has been tightened. and i think it does give an indication that the taliban realizes that certainly when it comes to the i, sol, attacks are on it and on civilians. it's got an issue, a real serious issue to deal with. and steph, as well as security concerns, there's also concerns about that humanitarian crisis that's unfolding almost 2 months on from the telephones takeover of afghanistan. what's the situation on the ground? oh, there is, there is no money, you know their, their salaries havent been paid in months. everyone will tell you that this
11:04 am
situation is desperate. people don't have jobs. they can't feed themselves world food program, saying numbers around only 5 percent of households in the entire country. and we're talking about almost 40000000 people have enough to eat. and, you know, we can't stress enough that the lack of funds coming into this country, which is become so dependent on foreign injections of cash over the last 2 decades is having a crippling effect on the people at winter is coming. it's already falling pretty much close to 0 celsius at night it will be snowing soon and everyone is incredibly concerned because you have a country that is virtually disintegrating even when it comes to. for example, a small example. you know, you ra chrissy, civil servants, you had the taliban are fighters so they need help running this country. the civil servants haven't been paid in months. so you've got to really precarious situation here. and i think, you know, if you're seeing this diplomatic push and the taliban is being spoken to by many different international players, but they're holding the money hostage as
11:05 am
a leverage to try and get them to be more inclusive in government to try and get them to protect the rights of women, moral, you know, pretty much, but the impact that's having is a detrimental and devastating effect on the people help me appreciate that. update stephanie decker live for us in campbell, thank you. the pentagon says he will pay compensation to the families of victims of a drone strike in campbell. 10 afghan civilians including 7 children, were killed in the august 29th strike during the final days of the u. s. troop withdrawal. washington originally said they had struck targets linked the i sell affiliate in afghanistan. the pentagon's offered sincere condolences and says it will work towards relocating surviving family members to the us. se asia regional blog is excluding me and my jointed chief from summit later this month. the moved by as young is a rare rebuke to the military rulers who toppled me in my civilian government. in
11:06 am
february, the armies failure to comply with a roadmap to pace a grade to earlier this year has frustrated members of the block will then 1100 people have been killed and more than 7000 arrested. since the military seized power. for more analysis on the slips, bringing in debbie started the founder and coordinator of old c in burma, a network of organizations working to support human rights and democracy in me and my debbie. thank you for joining us. do you think the decision to exclude the june to late is a strong enough message from me and my neighbors? hi, emily. it is a message, but it's not strong enough because we're still thin. a non political representative to the meeting. they the, as the on really need to start recognizing the elected legal government of the country instead of this illegal military. what more can be done from the
11:07 am
international community to put pressure on the latest to comply with this so called roadmap to place? well firstly, in the 5 months following the adoption of this roadmap, the 5 point consensus in april, we've seen any 3534 military attacks. i was targeting, humming civilian less than 840 percent increase from the same period last year. so i really need to start thinking about working with the un security council and other international partners to push the military into a cessation of violence in order for any kind of peace agreement or peace process to be started debbie, how much of a shift is this for avi on, given it traditionally favors a policy of, of non interfering well, i think recognizing any legal above and elected government is the worst form of interference. but this goes back also reminds me of the process back in 2006.
11:08 am
that was pressure to deny me on my chair because it was rude by a military who at the time. and in that situation the avia rebuked the whole time in such a way that the who had to save face and withdraw from the chair. so i think this is also a similar move by making this statement saying that they will not have a political representative from the at the upcoming summit. and his gambling on the fact that many senior gentlemen on my included was quietly withdraw from the sea at this time. and just lastly, as is often the case of these situations, the civilians get forgotten. what more do we know about the current situation on the ground and me and my debbie?
11:09 am
well, we've seen millions of people being still displaced by military attacks. in fact, in more than 50 percent of the population in that states have been displaced because of the text by the so you're seeing a huge humanitarian crisis happening all around the country because of the civil war. but also because the hunter has refused to allow oxygen supplies. cobit vaccinations and humanitarian need to flow freely throughout the country. they've been blocking aid and it's hurting people on the ground. well, we appreciate your insights, fair debbie's da side, alt cn berman network. we appreciate that. ok, we're going to go to some breaking news now. and boris johnson has arrived at the scene where the u. k. politician david and i miss was finally stabbed on friday in what british police are describing as a terrorist incident. you can see the u. k. prime minister there. the 69 year old
11:10 am
was making members of the public at a church in the ethics town of lee, on say, in his constituency, when he was attacked at 25 year old has been arrested on suspicion of murder. there are flowers at the st, and people have been paying tribute from all walks of life and across all poetry political persuasions. all right, let's go to worry challenge who is at the same rory, what more do we know about the accused in the terrorism investigation at this stage? well that is very limited amount of information about exactly who it is, the police having custody, as the say 25 year old man, he is believed to be a british citizen. but beyond that, it basically gets into the realms of speculation. what has happened though? here shocked a great many people across the political device in the united kingdom. as you just
11:11 am
said, there are a johnson has been down here to pay his tributes. he came with kissed alma, the leader of the opposition, and lindsey hoyle, the speaker of the house of commons, and pretty patel, the home secretary, giving you an idea of how united the political establishment i think in the country want to be at this moment. lots and lots of sad was and kind memories being shared at the moments about david amos saying that he was a very kind man, a principal man, a funny man. and that this is something that strikes right at the hearts of britain's democratic system that you have to have the ability of m p 's in their constituencies to meet their constituents. that's how purchase democracy works. and this is a real strike at that system. and it's operation, rory, it certainly is. what impact do you think this crime will have on the security of
11:12 am
in pays going forward? yeah, well i mean most m p 's when they go about their daily business, they don't have the kind of close security that top ministers have there is going to be some sort of review into the security that m p 's. do you have most of them don't want to be tailed by secret service, policemen or anything like that? they need to be able to go out and do their job. there is a real tension at the heart of a pallet, you know, a parliamentary democracy like the united kingdom's, where you have people like david amos have go out into their constituencies that surgeries around the country, very fixture of the, of the political life where people need to be able to come to the surgeries and give their grievances, share their opinions with their local m p and their m p. takes those opinions,
11:13 am
grievances to parliament with them. if you have an peas, essentially hiding behind a wall, not be able to do that. but the system doesn't really work properly. lots of people have been talking about the political discourse in the united kingdom, whether that might have contributed to this particular event. it's not the 1st m p who has been killed. we have jo cox, the labor m, p who has stopped to death and in 2016 i think that the, the terrorism aspect of this, the fact the police calling this terrorist instant it doesn't quite fit into the analysis of this being a symptom of britain's political discourse malays, but certainly there's a lot of soul searching going on right now about whether the way that we talk about politicians and politics is just become too betrayal. like in the u. k, it's going to be interesting see how it unfolds and impacts security. thank you for that update where a challenge they live for us and lay on the say. and we'll just bring you those
