which is largely focused on the site attack are not long after the explosion syrian government troops heavily shell, the town in the northern provinces, live civilians were killed or injured in a re how many of them children who were on their way to school. the area is regularly targeted by government troops despite last year cease fire agreement. but when they shelling is being seen as retaliation to the damascus attack, this attack will play into the hands of the regime by using it as and other evidence that he's facing at some sort of terrorism actions. and that he is trying to blame the opposition, particularly in lip for that. but the attack in an attempt actually to framed opposition. much of northern syria is under rebel control. the country remain divided along the front lines and millions remain displaced. and while some host

countries are starting to promote their return, human rights groups are again warning. it is not safe in the absence of certain conditions. in a report, human rights watch said it interviewed 65 return knees or family members. it documented $21.00 cases of arrest and arbitrary detention, 13 cases of torture, 3 kidnappings, 5 extra judicial killings. 17 enforced disappearances. and one case of reported sexual violence. this includes people that had clearances, supposedly before they return, they assurances that they would not be persecuted or reconciliation agreements as they are called and were given documents to say that they would not be hunted down . but in fact, that's exactly what happened to people. president sharla says, forces now control much of syria after military help from his allies,
4:05 pm
russia and iran help tip the balance of power in his favor. but wednesday's explosion was a serious security breach, and it shows, once again, syria is still in crisis than other al jazeera. russia says the taliban must live up to international expectations on human rights. if it wants to be recognized by world powers, moscow has hosted a conference on economic and security crises in afghanistan. it was attended by a taliban delegation and regional powers, including china, india, and pakistan, russian foreign minister. so gay lab robes told the taliban government must include all ethnic groups and political forces certainly can then be speech. and so the social, economic, and humanitarian problems, the new government and capital have taken on show the current situation in afghanistan cannot be called stable. first of all, terrorist groups such as idaho and al qaeda have to be stopped. they are again trying to raise their heads and all different parts of the country. and the drug
4:06 pm
trade remains impressing problem in afghanistan. shall a bellis is live for us in the afghan capital capital? hello there charlotte, what more of the russians had to say about this international conference? off to foreign minister lever also, another russian envoy followed up and he said that they actually want to see the you win be more involved. so that's what are all these chain nations coming together in these talks. they said that support afghanistan, but they want the you when to take the lead and convene a during the conference, the humanitarian needs of afghanistan were with a top priority of this conference today. and they said, well, we can support afghanistan going forward, especially with winter on the horizon. we want to see a broader push involved more countries to support afghanistan going forward at such a vulnerable time. so they're pushing for the un taliban also super committed to day to fight in court terrorism. they are under a lot of pressure from their neighbors, russia, china as well to, to contain,
4:07 pm
particularly, i, so russia brought up, i so saying that they were particularly worried about the group. and whether or not the taliban could contain them. neighbors worried about that. of course i saw has stage 3 quite deadly bombings since the taliban took over. the telephone was trying to reassure its neighbors and countries as part of these talks that they could contain iceland would do so going forward. and i also sued that, that contained drug smuggling, that was another issue that russia raised as well. now, the taliban, when it wouldn't have been involved in these kind of diplomatic catch ups, if you will, recently they've been pushing again and again legitimacy. they want to be recognized as legitimate government. russia today saying that just isn't going to happen until the taliban. the phil. some of the promises it's met. it has made in it's short term. i empower particularly they want to see and inclusive governments . the taliban push back on that today they said as far as we're concerned, acting government is inclusive, so there's some definite discord beer. but everybody in these talks and moscow
4:08 pm
today are on the same page in one thing. and that is the need for humanitarian aid . and support in the country. thank you very much. charlotte bellis reporting live pressing. cobble let's get analysis on this now and bring in sultan barrick. had he's the founding director at the center for conflict in humanitarian studies at the doe hi institute and joined us by skype from doha. hello there, felton. we heard from charlotte just saying a little bit about the relationship between the taliban and russia. can you break it down for us and give us some context about the 2 while the, obviously, the relationship goes quite far. and it was very unfriendly, ever since the withdrawal of the soviet union for they managed to restore some kind of relationship over the last few years. and russia stepped in to fill in the gaps that the united states have created. by deciding to grow from from ton
4:09 pm
and in fact they've hosted the number of meetings already with the, with the guns, including the other size that are public inside and last year and the year before. and they have been very active, particularly utilizing the troika mechanism, the troika. if i may give a, just a background to it, it's a mechanism that was created to allow china, the us and russia to coordinate over afghanistan at the time when the relationship between the united states and russia are very, very strained. and as you know, some notice will probably say it's not been as good or it's, it's, it's worth stage since the cold war between the 2. so they're very, very few mechanisms for them to talk directly. and this is one of those mechanisms . and the plus comes from having that ability to invite practice time because of its influence in galveston and other countries when the need is there for them
4:10 pm
to, to dialogue. it's not the 1st time they meet under this umbrella. in fact, i think this is the 4th time this year that they've met. the last time was on the 11th of august just before the fall of cable, where they meant to hear in doha. so the mechanism has been going on for some time . and the relationship continues. at the same time, it is clear that russia is not rushing to recognize the taliban government for a number of reasons. but the one most important reason is they need further guarantees as to the taliban. so going to to, to control terrorist groups launching attacks, particularly in central asia from grindstone. so sultan, i mean, we don't really know what was said in this meeting. i mean, we have a few main points that it's happened behind. closed doors is much actually likely to come from what's happened today in moscow. yes,
4:11 pm
i think it is. it's important in terms of giving assurances to the taliban that the world is listening. and that despite the fact that may be the west, western countries are boycotting or frozen their accounts and so on. other countries are interested in maintaining a good level of communication with the, with the taliban. largely because these regional governments have more at stake than further way governments including the united states at the moment. so it's important in that that dimension. it's also important to emphasize to the taliban that they need to move on 3 basic items of promises or agreements that were made before they move into couples. and that includes terrorism, respect of human rights, including rights for women, and the facilitation of humanitarian aid. to the population of kennesaw on
4:12 pm
i don't think there will be any call for former recognition as a result of this meeting, i think the international community remains united in his position that they will not recognize a government that's come to to, to talk to by force and they have a certain expectations of the taliban. i've got to live up to before for murder commission is taking place. thank you very much, shelton. we appreciate your insights. a sultan barrack at thank think moving on now. and as strikes have hit, the capital of ethiopia is to grow raging for a 2nd time. this week. the government said it was targeting facilities used to make and repay weapons spokesman for the rival to grey. and forces denied that at least 3 people were killed in the strikes on mccalla. on monday, the conflict in the north has been going on from the lee now and thousands of people have been killed. journalist samuel let get to choose says it's difficult to
4:13 pm
confirm details independently. because if communication black out in the region from the images were able to watch but cannot verify, it seems to be a heavy target. and there will be many, many victims from this later strike that happened. then they took 10 minutes on monday, denied it, then they confirmed it. but the target this head is communication equipment to try to perhaps slow down the success that we've been watching left in terms of capturing towns outside of to grow into horror and parties from the get go. the children government has been clear in terms of pointing their fingers against that . they've been saying that the money that has been stealing resources and using it or to perhaps provide support to their soldiers. that's the persuasive of. if you're in the t p, i left, they would say the opposite. so this is
4:14 pm
a conflict that we have a in a challenging position to verify what's being said. because we have no access of the state of direct plenty more head on this news hour, including reports, brazil's president could face criminal charges over, he's handling of the corner virus pandemic. plus, audrey 12 reporting from the east coast to greenland were underneath the glass. you can see evidence of extraordinary yeah, of ice know and china life, the olympic flame and badging ahead of its controversial windy games in 2022. that's coming up with install with jama. ah, demonstrate his in nigeria a mocking a years since at least 12 protest is were killed during rallies against police brutality. i am
