the ah ah, this is the w news line from berlin. the end of the 20, your mission against islam. it's extreme. it's not gonna start the last us and nato troops leave background air based, but afghans here for the future as the taliban wait in the wings. uncle america. that aims to resets re strained relations by breakfast. on her last official visit to the u. k. a chancellor also hints at looser travel restrictions for persons arriving in germany and drama and disappointment, fain secures their place in the euro. 2020 semi finals was
1:01 am
a penalty shoot out victory over switzerland. they'll face italy next after their when over belgium. ah, i'm aaron tilton, welcome to the program. the last remaining american needed troops have left the main international military base in afghanistan. bag room was the center of the 20 year campaign against tele and extremists. the taliban is celebrating the departure of western troops and has already overrun much of the country. off guns are worried about what will happen to them now that the international troops have gone. this is the sound of us troops leaving us gone down to its fate. in 2001 after the 911 terrorist attacks us troops stoned by graham into a key military base to hunt down militant groups responsible for the atrocity. now
1:02 am
the afghan government is getting control back, even though talks between them and taliban militants have made no headway. president biden believes that can work. look, we're in that war for 20 years. 20 years. and i think i met with the african government here in the white house in the oval. i think they have the capacity to be able to sustain the government. africans do not have as much faith in their government as biden as military truth depart. day to are looking for a way out people are flocking to passport offices in capital to plan their exit. but on the very voted about a possible return of the taliban. so we want to leave the country before the situation gets worse. have a problem all for your most districts have fallen. there's not
1:03 am
a single district without fighting. they've even reached the chief of police is office and provincial capital. i've come here to get my passport and get out of the stone. not safe for the soldiers of the african national and defense forces. that's not an option. some field, a country is finally their own and they intend to hold it. keeping the taliban at bay on this land belongs to you when the russians were here and they left than the americans came and now they have left. this country is ours and be be protected even without bay or equipment. meanwhile, the taliban are gaining ever more ground in afghanistan. over the past weeks, they've been on the offensive releasing propaganda video and taking control of many districts. it won't be until the last us food pull out on september 11th,
1:04 am
that the world will finally load what the taliban have planned. what get more than that with us on a bus. he's distinguished professor at the national defense university in washington, d. c. mr. boss, welcome to d. w. news with the us and other allied troops moving out of canada. and how would you describe the situation there? right now? the situation is tense, of course, but it has nothing unexpected. we knew volleyball are forced to reckon whit, and they have strong support pace in the rural area, and they will ultimately grab more space. that's why the whole political div thought of bond was cut. but also we were expecting that the hon. security forces we hope will be able to hold on to cover the time there is an internal dialogue or internal settlement that takes place. so i am not as worried about gobble as about the other areas. hopefully, will be defended in a sense that the upon security forces will show that they also have enough courage
1:05 am
and enough resources and training to be able to defend the hon. gum and sitting in gobble. so with the taliban gaining more and more ground, what does that mean for everyday people in the country shed little everyday people in many cases in the, in the south end, north of a $100.00 bond have support this without support based they were not there. they're not outside is i would argue they would not have been able to get intelligence information support based if they will not populate in certain areas in certain areas in rural areas, from small back in small segment such as i teach in some places and other places in significant areas they have their support based. yes, they are not democratic oriented. they use force also. but, but they have some linkage with some elements and society as well. so they
1:06 am
even be able to now the issue is, is, is the same one, which was the most important one on the bottom. or are we seeing those doha negotiators who appear to be quite a more than in terms of the know how to negotiate communicate they have they have off after all, got to deal with united states after so many discussion. so is that new taliban will be that the leadership will be able to kind of establish their length and go back and take jobs off of the taliban. that taliban, perhaps you can talk to. and we don't know over the field commanders, some of the drug dealers, some of the other local insurgents will actually really grab that about leadership . and that's a big question. so international troops are leaving the country, but the situation is still highly unstable. so was the last 20 years for nothing.
1:07 am
no, i think last 20 years were able to get to challenge either us and western alliance had gone into a blind on not to necessarily deal with thought, yvonne, but in principle to, to defeat a guy that's got is, has very small presence fair bashes this but a dollar bond would never be pine target, and one can debate that one can argue that should have been the case dollar bond. yes, but it turned out of public, they were pushed back and they were targeted as well. but the prime reason was to provide space to the army of hans in cobble today. the of on security forces to represent the not some of the educated people, women, they all are far more empowered now than fashion community cannot spoon feed bond forever. millions of dollars i should sit trillions of dollars but expected over spend. so now baby is the limit to all the rest and all can do there are mistakes
1:08 am
committed, there are blenders committed. there's no doubt about it. i mean, this also tells you the limitation of international roles. perhaps we try to do too much of on this on which was not possible. maybe a different approach would have, but these are lessons to be learned also. and we must not shy away from accepting the beaver blenders and mistakes decor committed by the western length as well. which be honest that was on a bus from the national defense university in washington, d. c. thank you for your assessment. thank you so much. let's take a look now with some other stories making news around the world. un officials have told the security council that more than 400000 people in ethiopia as t gray region are now suffering from famine. the region has been cut off from aids and fighting, broke out last year. the un warned of new clashes despite the unilateral cease fire by you feel p as government on the rosie and leader alexander lucas shanker has

1:10 am
the u. k. before she steps down. as the german chancellor, marco held wide ranging talks with the british prime minister. and there was time for tea with the queen at windsor castle, the forest johnson on a charm offensive as he welcomes the e u. the longest serving leader. this is angular mad, cause 3rd visit to check is the country residence. the british prime ministers far is johnson is the 5th british need a she's dealt with in her 16 years in german chancellor and her last. she prepares to step down in september angular on behalf of the u. k. i want to thank you for your truly historic commitment, not just to the u. k. a germany relationship, but to global diplomacy. more generally. this meeting was about when we searching
1:11 am
relations between germany and the u. k. after the tensions of bricks it lost him also. after prisons exit from the you, it's a good opportunity to open a new chapter in german, british relations, and find practical ways to have close contacts. this includes regular government consultations which we have agreed on the hub and conduct so good. the to also discuss the vaccine rollout among other issues. macros, signaling that battling could soon relax quarantine rules for britons traveling to germany, have been double job school. it's no secret though, that the german chancellor has found johnson at times difficult to deal with. but she is the queen of diplomacy, solos, and we look at how different people are and make the best of it. and that works wonderfully about
1:12 am
ah, macro finished her british visit with all the pomp and ceremony. a world leader would expect. good afternoon, windsor castle, she had an audience with queen elizabeth, and no doubt they had a good chat over a proper cup of tea. told the to football now and italy have set up a euro 2020. so my final, with spain, after beating belgium to one in a thrilling, matching munich goals from nicolo barella and randall and sidney put italy to nail up. and although aroma lucas penalty have the deficit just before half time, italy held on during the rest of the game, they remain on course for their 1st european title and more than half a century. that's after spain beat switzerland in a dramatic penalty shoot out in st. petersburg,
1:13 am
spain's goalkeeper when i see more than me to save as his country 131, and the shoot out. the match had ended one all after extra time, despite switzerland plane, a man down after a red card. earlier we spoke to dave brenda from d. w. sports, he had this to say about spain's chances of winning the tournament. it was an incredibly close match with a real nail biter. and spain really are almost a bit lucky to squeak through. we do have to give switzerland all the credit they deserved. they really have punched way, way above their weight this tournament, and done a lot better than people give them credit for the least to say the least. but spain were clear favorites in this match and did struggle. and i think this match was really indicative of one of their broader issues where they have a boom bust attack in 2 of their matchers. they've scored 5 goals now. and 3 of their matches, they either were shut out or only scored one goal. so it's either kind of feast or famine. i think if they can get that figured out, then they really are one of the better teams in the tournament. there are also kind
1:14 am
of in a transitional period. this isn't the same team that won the 282012 euros and the 2010 world cup. there are younger team, which means there's less pressure turning to tennis now and world number one, novak choker, which is through to the 4th round of wimbleton, after straight sets victory joker bitch. at the top of your screen here. didn't have it all his way against dennis. could lot, but he won the key points when it mattered to beat the american qualifier joker, which is chasing a record equaling 20th major title and 6 and wimbleton in the women's wrong. when his trouble became the 1st arab woman to reach the 4th rounded wimbleton, the tunisian came from a set down and overcame vomiting on match point due to nerves to be 2017 wimbleton champion gebrina's move a router shield next face pulling industry on robots

1:18 am
including for black, hispanic and asian workers. let's cross financial correspondent in new york now young quarter young. 850000 jobs create a last month, but still, some employees are struggling to fill vacancies. why is that? well, i mean what we're still hearing at number one reason from an employee where it's still shy of returning to work. it's the fear of a coven. but then clearly what we're also seeing is that a lot of workers, they just decided to not go back to a pretty badly pe to jobs. if you look at some waiters in the country, some of them make less than $3.00 an hour. so that totally depend on tips, but also if we look at truck drivers, we're getting a report that for example, gas station, they're running out of gas because they don't get the deliveries. or if you look at over or lift the drivers also often we heard stories in the past that those jobs
1:19 am
are really badly paid. and a lot of people are just hesitant to return to those low point a paying jobs at this point. and well, that is possible at the moment because we still get some extra weekly unemployment age and that will expire end of august. so that could change the dynamics of the labor market coming to fall. and just briefly, imports far outstripped exports. last month in the united states is, is that cause for concern? well, i mean, yeah, so there are trade deficit actually reached the 2nd highest level us history. it is regard to concern as to high deficit actually could put a damper on economic growth. but so far and economists are not too concerned because they believe the spending habits of americans will change less buying imported goods, but spend more on domestic services. and that should actually come to
1:20 am
that would mean that we might actually see a certain patel when it comes to the trade deficit overall and go to new york. thanks. i showed him. virgin galactic sky rocketed to join friday trading. sorry. following news. it's next test flights will carry, found a richard branson into space. amazon's jeff pathos had looked on cars to become the 1st 1000000000 asked to leave the atmosphere. but now it appears he'll lose the space race by a matter of days. mm. it's the last test for the v. s. s. unity followed by us already is approving the space ship for manned missions. the 1st trip is scheduled for july 11th, and it will include mission specialist, richard branson. the british billionaire has been reading himself for a while. all i can say when they tell me that i can go to space, so i will,

1:22 am
1st flight on do origin, is scheduled for july 20th. i need no date has been set for the 3rd 1000000000 and the space race. chancellor sondra musk has recently focused on launching satellites for online services for now using space to make money. not spend it. now let's take a look at some of the other business stories making headlines. most of those major over using countries have agreed to boost outputs showing an effect plus me thing. on friday, united, our amaris is the only one not to sign up something that could fill derailed the deal. chinese regulators of band right hailing giant d d from signing up new uses. it comes just days after duty went public in the u. s . regulators that they were investigating the security of the app, but didn't say how long that would take so how do you make a big coin? computers crunch numbers in a process called mining and its energy intensive. one study suggests minors are
1:23 am
burning through more sierra to than the country of argentina. our more miners are turning to green energy to create crypto courts. the server sneak no expensive cooling system. a site barriers, cold air naturally regulates the high temperatures generated by the mining rigs. the store to the former la minium plant in plots, and nearby hydro power plants generates electricity for the remaining elementary plants and the new crypto mines. with the video barrier and it puts grades in the location for several reasons. the 1st is that cheap cost of electricity. there are fundamental reasons for this, like the excess capacity of hydro, electric power plants built in this region, or an imbalance between electricity generation and its consumption. siberia, it could region, has many places similar to past. the soviet union has built many mines and hydro
1:24 am
electric power plants alongside your in rivers, to source elementary and other raw materials back in the 900 sixties and seventies bit river rows. the company behind this crypto mining site does not do the mining itself. it just provides equipment for the data center and technical maintenance customers from all over the world, use their services. we do see that our asian clients, our aeroplanes, more and more interested in how the electricity we consume is generated whether it's green and for them to expand capacity to accommodate more equipment. this is a really important question. only environmentalists welcome the use of excess electricity. they also liked that the crypt farms do not admit c o 2, but they're worn. not all hydro power plants are green. if this is so called,
1:25 am
plain blade should have power. not mounting by clay, it's a lot of disturbance of nature cuz systems, huge water is that we've changed of climate damage for far as damage for nature. therefore, ecologist are very skeptical about large hydro dams, and they are very skeptical to speak that electricity produced by these dams are green bits. river rose this building, new sites in russia, eastern siberia, bordering mongolia and elsewhere. chinese clients in particular, want to move their servers. they're using excess power generated by existing hydro, electric plants and cold siberia seems to be a better way to mind bitcoin than using coal power mines in warmer china, which need a lot of fans. now the panoramic has meant a move outdoor for many businesses, events and even schools. but as countries seem to recover the burden based company,
1:26 am
new tech, thanks, it has a way to make his own safer inside. oh, finally he also and her sister can go back to their accordion lessons. they still need to mask up and use plexiglas was to avoid contact though the music school director knows that some students won't comply with the rules. so a new device that's phrased disinfecting dry mis might remedy the situation. kirsten yackel is waiting for approval from the health authorities, but she's been able to convince most of the parents already. so get this my schedule. she's got to go at 1st and that's normal. when they found out what it was made up, they all said yes, that's totally okay. it sounds great case and my mom at the hotel on boise to him is already testing out the devices made by the berlin based company, new tech. when guests come through the entrance, the disinfecting mist covers their skin and clothing we are about to show you,
1:27 am
but fancy. we've been working in this field for 20 years, so hum via yeah. in the off him to dig call, why develop an effective and low cost system? while him coughing goes to good $15.00 and he can walk in the hotel staff filled the devices which cost several $100.00 euros with a special feeling solution. then it's electrolytic li, charged on site. it complains with standards and is also well tolerated by the body . so the machine was used here at the hotel in april of at an awards ceremony for wines moscow snap. if you could use that to us, it's important of course, that the guests feel good and they feel safe, especially when they come here for an event like this one and is host, we have a certain responsibility. it would be a disaster for us if half the people at such an event were infected with a corona virus. one fits in engineer you one go,
1:28 am
is still looking for the green light from the health authorities for widespread use and for positive feedback from major concert promoters. just time for a quick reminder of our top story, this, our us employers created 850000 jobs in june, better than expected economy as continuing to rebound with panoramic restrictions using demand. so from us, the news. this was the issue is shaping the continent. the news africa, the government, what's making headlines them, what's behind the way on the street to give you enough reports and insights all the trans my talk to you the next on

1:32 am
voss territory across africa, expanding and strengthening its influence together with affiliated groups. i'll be talking to a security analyst in a moment, but 1st here's a look at northern nigeria where 2 foes are battling for a common cause. the violent rivals know, joining forces this to teach purports to show bullhorn fighters, pledging allegiance to the islamic state and west africa. problem long january. it would harold, the disturbing development for nigerian security forces. we have no during which one, but i've got some mistakes that has got in between us and we are now together. so we are central i who and we should not relent in the to fried the far junior years. the to militia had been fighting each other. that came to
1:33 am
a head last month. when a tory, a leader backer chicago scene here in 2018, reportedly killed himself in a battle with i. yes. fighters and i like, i don't know. but you know that it's field fears that the so called islamic state is consolidating control of the insurgency in northeastern nigeria. that's at the heart of a string of conflicts involving various extremist groups from mauro, tanya, to chad. no, there are warnings i activities growing in the horn of africa and northern mozambique to became as the global coalition, against our yes metric room to discuss the resurfacing of the terra group, sometimes called dia sh. today we began, of course, with the meeting of the coalition to defeat isis, and what we have to do to eradicate what's left of the terrorist group. and very
1:34 am
critically, as italy has been emphasizing to prevent its emergence in places like like africa, the italian foreign minister wants to sharpen the focus on the continent. democracy can provide a proposal. i proposed a working group dedicated to africa, which could identify install diane related terrorist threats on the continent. continuing feature at the end of the 1st and past and meeting in 2 years. the global coalition added 3 new african countries to their ranks. and the propaganda images of form, i suppose burying the hot you to night syria only served to underline the urgency of the situation. uh huh. well do i need to discuss this from london is belong because the senior africa analyst at the tony blair institute for global change. he's also a columnist for the daily trust. and i jerry newspaper. great to have you with us
1:35 am
on d. w. news, africa, lama. thank you for being with us. thank you for having me. now our report touches on the growing presence of the so called a stomach states in africa, but i'd like to get your thoughts on how widespread the operations are. how are they growing geographically? unable to conduct these attacks, i mean unfortunately it is so widespread today and because you can see it across the continent now. i mean, you are not talking about countries, you are talking about also countries in each of the reasons i when you start, for example, with the region you have region range to give julia i need to come in and where the ice is called lamb. it's dead with africa probing for prius in this i hell nomics fit in grid is acting on it is it's an operator in my lee. i'm booking are possible. i'm just becoming to that now to
1:36 am
start with african countries like pool ivory and guy now. and then when you go to south africa, it is mostly active in the northern part of b and b and i feel it in the most of it is pretty widespread. and unfortunately the, the, the, the model is robust is not, i didn't fight this wrong. or if i go to that and i've been fighting in best region for long and know they have very well how effective will this task force be to counter this thread. and what would this look like in practical terms? it depends on how it is out. if it grows out in the right way, which is, in my opinion, look at the lead. and it is actually to be to be effective.
1:37 am
priority to be again in the violent $110.00 in the violence require my look at the lead stand on is not on the group that is led by looks, but that is not technically supported by western countries. i think what it's mentioned region is not much the west presence is located but supported by that, what's been called in terms of logistics and technical support. but also in terms of, do you know, these insurgencies are driven by a number of grievances from humanitarian crises and poverty as well as the social and economic grievances as well. could you just expand on that and explain how i as is exploiting these grievances? yes, i did this duty to what is necessity, but it's got you content, the violence, it is insufficient. why do we need to do is to tackle the root cause is and the
1:38 am
root cause is paula employment. education. education in many parts are also this ability to either this or the affiliates on the ground exploit religion and norco says, and so you and you might think investment in education, investment in the economy impressed not job, but also, i mean was by no kind of lead and community lead to counter and reduce all of these groups. these as one of our abilities that i could that i had the ability like quarter borders like i mean and govern spaces in many parts of africa. that's what i, what about 5 big war and the international community and local government lab behind. unfortunately,
1:39 am
west africa has all the ability that med, i'm going to spend bit for terrorism now will be addressing the african governments and why they're all means have not been able to get this issue under control. what do they need to do to address better governance and tackle issues like poverty, local populations, dissatisfied with how government are delivering democracy would work well in that part of the country and it is high time, but it has started anybody. and so government, what invest in education, in infrastructure, in the, in the relationship between the government, the government. so that what that room is group will not be able to exploit. which kind of 3 months is to young people into violence. right? to pull up a car, see thank you very much for your time and analysis. thank you very much for having
1:40 am
me. in nigeria, schools, churches, and villages have long been targeted by the armed group of boca harm. now one catholic priest is trying to help a community by building a school clinic under mosque in a muslim majority area, he w, a federal boonie traveled to the village of pagoda outside the capital of boucher. this every sunday christians gather to worship in these church. then they pray for their nation nigeria. they ask god for peace and harmony. but the priest has been doing more than just praying. his building a bridge between muslims and christians, through his actions. he helped raise funds to be the most in our climate that is very divisive. a lot of hatred, religious inter intolerance,
1:41 am
bigotry. we have shown through this singular act that we can work together that we as christians, muslims, we are all children of dot x, but the religious interagency is the main cause of tensions between christians and muslims. solvents have been killed in the interface by its recent years to pay the mom i do. the ministration has failed nigerians and they just called free have already been accept baited by poverty or lack of resources. this part of the touch towards these predominant museum community is seen by men and i did. and as a unifying factor between muslims and christians, the most was completed in may this year due to by museums and paid for with money raised by father. i used to doco people from the museum community can worship
1:42 am
for the kids, the village of pug had never had anything like this. so it means that great these to them. emily, who are they doing again? everybody will respect one another. got a dean is requiring anything what and they will respect each of his teeth mine up by the same with this or i didn't, i will not tonisha image of your religion a know will you tarnish mine? i wanna move in and christians have come to support the extended by the catholic church and i'm new law in glory. be to god look on when you that of course we are happy in the back and someone comes to build you a place of worship because that he would be happy to the lot. but i didn't see anything wrong by kristin didn't most our school was in because we actually did
1:43 am
it by 44 that came to the work to view of the tory and society is work in progress. the essence is to show that we can live together. we can work together well children of god. religion is much for hatred or to show love every day. but that must be night. should he say. and he hopes every single nigeria and can do their part to the view, the united nation, free of coffee and watching d. w. nice africa still to come. it's a mash up of trash and fantasy a future future with african folklore tradition mixed with science fiction in africa futurism the how would be faithful to the republic of south africa?
