5:03 am
as the others being covering events. raji indeed as a, as he just said, you are in the city when the explosion happened was the situation that lived there right now. well this situation so far this morning is somewhat cob of and it was yesterday, but we kept hearing as many as half a dozen explosions. and this is after the 2 terrorist bomb blas at the airport. some of them are explained by the trailer, back to the local population as, as control detonations carried out by american servicemen destroying their assets, equipment that they don't want to leave behind and that they can't evacuate. nevertheless, things that hasn't been the sort of shooting we had overnighted and the sirens that we heard yesterday. but from what we understand. and this has been confirmed to us by, by numerous sources that were searches and raids carried out throughout the city over
5:04 am
the course of tonight's and this this morning as well. the searches and grades are still ongoing. the terror threats at the airport is still high. you may have seen footage from the airport this morning. the crowds never went away. it's very difficult to describe just how many people there are at the airport now. how tightly packed together they are and how impossibilities to, to, to vet them, to sort of pack them all down before they get to the fence before they get to the various checkbook, thousands and thousands of people packed together screaming, jocelyn, shoving, trying to get into the airport that hasn't changed, and nato countries as well as the taliban, all warning with the crowds, much dispersed for their own safety. those who carried out these, these attacks, these awful attacks more than a 100 people killed a 150, injured, injured seriously. as well as many hundreds that needed medical attention or some
5:05 am
sort of attention. you know, they saw the cottage that they caused, isis allegedly has claimed responsibility and the, the threat ease. and the, the fear here is that they'll try again, which is why we're seeing the searches carried out. now these rates bud taliban sizes allegedly, coordinating with us forces. but as i said, the situation remains tense, not quite as bad as it was yesterday, but nevertheless far from the hopefully we're not going to see any repeats of what was witness yesterday. of course, lots of concern there might still be more attacks in the ask on capitol bring is the very latest correspondence. rod gets the well as i make states correson, which is a regional affiliate devices, claim responsibility for the atrocities the day ahead of the blast. the u. k. u. s, and other western nations have been warning the nationals about the threat that
5:06 am
might be a terrorist attack and advise them to avoid the airport. we spoke with ali, his sonic. it was near the apple when the 1st explosion. slave in to the airport of cobbled i was in the standing and is get i will need to get in and they used to sort of like 5 minutes away. i just saw there was like 45 minutes they had and they had to run. there was looking look, dash c, p will renew the duration parliament, a difference of them. the type of type of glued they're willing to discuss. we're looking were suspicious. they didn't have guns. what they was looking to the airport was looking to be used troops. they will, i will 100 them us and they get that to the line. i was with the people like after 12 or 2 minutes. an explosion happened on the weekend. it was near. it was near to the lake 1st, then away. an accident happened and gone for a start the year after that they used to, they call the people that stay away,
5:07 am
stay away with the people that didn't move. they told me that they are joking because they did these things many times. there was always didn't get and then the us started tubing, gas, gas and smoke. when the people fix the 7 gas people, the people who need to get injured. i saw they were like 5 to take form in danger. their 1st born and they were sitting there was lying on the grounds on the ice. a splinter group behind her stays. bombings has been active in eastern afghanistan and pakistan. and those, the savage campaign, the bloodshed when it was founded in 2015, with more details on the group, his aunty segers donna, the dreaded name of ice. it had all but vanished from international headlines. but now, amid the afghan power vacuum, the terror group has apparently struck again the
5:08 am
. the double strike right outside couple, airport killed dozens. american politicians had been warning, an attack was inevitable, but to no avail. every day were on the ground is another day. we know that ice case seeking to target the airport attack both us and allied forces and innocent civilians. as we conduct these operations, we are sustaining the highest level of vigilance for an attack against the airport by isis k or another terrorist group, or commanders on the ground have taken every step they can to prepare for such an attack. isis k is an afghan off shoot of the same, the tory as islam state terror group. it's based in correson. hence the letter k in the abbreviation with over 2000 g. hardy's committed to its terrible cause. the group targets have ghana stones most vulnerable
5:09 am
the the if you slips before a happy union with the taliban. well think again. the 2 groups are sworn enemies with the taliban just not radical enough in the eyes of isis k. the islamic emerett strongly condemns the bombing targeting civilians at coco airport. the explosion took place in an area where us forces are responsible for security. the bottom line is isis k presents
5:10 am
a massive security and reputational challenge for the taliban. given the taliban attempts to look more civil, humane and legitimate, we could conceivably soon see. i mean, strangers, it sounds a taliban lead anti terrorist operation, or isis k might become the perfect pretext for the us to negotiate at least some presence in talib, uncontrolled of galveston. we did hear about this group, for example, and i believe, april 2017. when trump and essentially authorized the pentagon to drop the mother of all bombs in eastern afghanistan, i believe in the non ga har province on ices k. but the roots of this group in its existence is poorly understood. and of course, when we hear these press briefings at the pentagon, there's very little context as group actually is a direct by product of the us invasion and occupation of afghanistan. it grew out of the pockets, donnie taliban,
5:11 am
who were disgruntled tally bon members who wanted to carry out attacks on us targets inside pakistan and afghanistan. one of their most spectacular attacks was on camped camp chapman, u. s. military base where they used a c. i turn coat to attack us soldiers. there are several other attacks on american assets, and this all led to a rise of terrorism inside pockets on directly related to the u. s. presence in afghanistan, 6 years ago, the pakistani taliban, which was widely suspected of being used by the african government, backed by the u. s. against pakistan turned into isis k central. it's the same thing as isis. so most viewers with no slumming state of iraq and syria, right. isis, which was this group that took over in 2014, 2015 big swath of iraq and syria. and by the way, who were able to do that because of massive amounts of military equipment that the
5:12 am
us left behind, specifically in iraq, that's where they really got their weapons from. they went into iraq, took those home these weapons and went back into syria, isis k, which is the islamic state of correson, which essentially means eastern. they don't like the taliban, they're not friends with the taliban. they've been fighting the taliban. but more importantly, they'd been fight in the us and i bring up the point about the weapons because we just did the exact same thing and up dennis and left behind. unbelievable amounts of us military equipment, massive amounts of weaponry and guns black hawk helicopters from these. we left it all there the same way that we did in iraq. so we could be creating a very similar problem of what we saw. $2142015.00 with the other isis life case off from being the only faction able to carry out such attacks that the warning from the african national resistance front, which controls the pansy of valley and area now seen as the center of anti taliban opposition is foreign relations had believed that the terrorist threat in the country right now is even stronger than 20 years ago. it could be, i says, k,
5:13 am
but we think there are, there are other elements plan. the attacks might perpetrated such attacks against us soldiers and was a terrorist attack on the watch of the taliban group that says we are able to provide security. and now in one day we see numerous terrorist attacks happening on the watch. unfortunately, international terrorism and get us on as much stronger compared to 2001. this is something that the national resistance front of us can, as has been saying for the past year, we believe the international community should help our efforts to combat or national terrorism. and in 1900 the, to the international community, abandon the dentist, them. and we saw how afghanistan became a haven for terrorists groups. the same will happen if the international community abandoned of canada into 2021. there's no pose threat towards everyone. no one is
5:14 am
exempt. and terrorism is after every state, whether it's part of the western world or the eastern, the rush to leave and the, and suing panic was all to meet the august 31st withdrawal deadline, which was joe biden school. however, he's now presiding over the deadliest day for the us military in afghanistan in more than a decade. the telephone, the dress on at times emotional precedent vowed revenge. the sedge, the efforts to get people out of the country would continue your search. you need to know these isis tears will not win. we will rescue the american city. we will get our afghan allies and our mission will go on. the evacuation will continue and that the united states will get out any and all american citizens and african nationals were permanent us residency, what's known as green card, who want to leave you sent. some people may not want to leave,
5:15 am
but those who want to leave the u. s. will make every effort to get them out. he said it is an airline airlift mission, unlike any other in history and was expected to be dangerous and stressful that was planned for also attacks. there had been warnings about attacks. he called those u. s. service members. now, i believe the numbers up to 13 who are killed, quote unquote, heroes saying they are the backbone of america, who are engaged in a dangerous self was mission, to save the lives of others. and that the mission will and must continue. now, more than ever, and he had this message for those responsible to those who carried out just attack as well as anyone wishes america harm. no, this we will not forgive. we will not forget we will hunt you down to make you pay general kenneth mackenzie, the head of central command are sent. com,
5:16 am
said isis carried out the attack specifically isis k or isis chorus on. and will likely continue to try and launch more attacks. adding that others have already been forwarded by security forces and combo. the general went on to say the attack involved to suicide bombers detonating explosives outside the abbey date of the airport and nearby hotel. the hotel, followed by isis gunman, opening fire on civilians, men, women, and children, along with us troops and military personnel. there are warnings about to attack and it's certainly raises more serious questions about americans evacuation efforts. why it has become so incredibly catastrophic and also pass comments from president, bite himself about america's effort in afghanistan and the war on terror. listen to this mission, to degrade the chairs, tread about cod in afghanistan and kilo. some have been live was a success. i believed that our presence in that gas dance should be focused on the reason we went, the 1st place to ensure i've canister would not be used as a base from which to attack our homeland. again. we did that. we accomplish that
5:17 am
objective president body scene really backtrack, even raising questions about whether the u. s. again, should have been in afghanistan in the 1st place to begin with, and certainly as long as the u. s. was there nearly 20 years as far as the ongoing effort? general mackenzie said isis remains a quote, extremely real threat and will try to carry out further attacks, something present a bite. and also agreed with saying this was a mission designed for stress. and that was expected to come under attack, and certainly that happened, as we know, he said at this point it does not appear the taliban played a part in the attack. and that it's within the taliban interest for america to leave the country as well. he added that again while america will press ahead with withdrawing and evacuating any and all us citizens and ask in nationals by august 31st. the august 31st deadline. he could not guarantee total security wasn't here. it sounds ridiculous, but the vast majority of people and communities like that want to come to america,
5:18 am
given a choice. so getting every single person out is can't be guaranteed anybody because the termination or who wants to get out as well . and there has been in tell sharing, and this was confirmed by general mckenzie between us or forces and also the taliban. and so emphasized the messiness of america is nearly 20 or involvement in afghanistan. now coming to heretic, violent and crashing. and it's not surprising to me when, when a isis and prisoners were relates after the, the tech over on the bar air force base. and it was pretty clear that now we have thousands of people who could do harm beyond the child on and the talent on is not a tightly military unit. so it's not surprising. it exists farming, particularly for the men and women in uniform and the veterans that i've been
5:19 am
working with that get people out of afghanistan over the past week. we go reaction to buy the speech from legal analyst jennifer, to master and conservative commentator at martin he were both, far from impressed with the president's words. the global community is lost, trust, and faith, and joe biden, in his administration, a large truck now in the united states of america. despite the victory of the games and united states, military providers have managed to completely unravel and unwind that in a matter of months, putting our military in women's lives in danger. you know, biding, can get up there and say, all he wants to cameras will hunt. you down and we'll get you, but he has lots of credibility, not only this rate and the euro, our enemies, but he's a lot but credibility from our allies as well. i don't know how somebody is able to do that in 9 months of administration, but i don't think anybody is surprised that it would be under the biting ration.
5:20 am
we're watching the bible presidency deteriorate before our eyes. this president is not handling this well and everyone knows in america and the people in the rest of the world know it. so it's actually a very dangerous time. i hope the president is careful and slow and methodical. but right now what we're portraying is weakness. and uncertainty, he says at the end of his speech, and now i'm allowed to ask the person, and course i was instructed. and right now, china is looking to taiwan and, and bad guys are looking at america and saying, let's take advantage of this really weak, really embarrassing moment in american life. it's a big concern. well, in the wake of those blasts, multiple european leaders and now readjusting their evacuation plans. the august 31st deadline is just 4 days away after which no western force is set to remaining calm. let's go live now sci fi to all of our correspondent. he's in the room at the
5:21 am
moment. good afternoon to peter events of the last 24 hours. it seems that causing quite a few european leaders to rethink their evacuation plans. what's happening? well the news here in rome was from the defense ministry that an italian plane that was evacuating people from the the airport in cobbler came on the fire last night. we've already heard from mario doggie, the italian prime minister, saying that the upcoming g 20 summit, which will take place here in the italian capital will have gone to start as a big part of its focus. will be hearing more from audio doggy a little later on. as he takes part in the press conference following a meeting with russian foreign minister said a gay love for of elsewhere. what we've seen is the u. n. a refugee agency. specifically, there representatives in germany, in the folk person in germany think they would continue their efforts on the ground
5:22 am
after that 31st of august the deadline. the spoke 1st to the german un refugee agency saying the fire brigade doesn't leave when there's a fire. he did point out the sobering message, so that while thousands of people have been evacuated through campbell airport, far as the g un estimates, there's around 3400000 people trying to flee afghanistan in the country right now. but a number of nato allies, particularly the european countries, have wrapped up their operations when it comes to evacuating people directly themselves. we heard from germany from going to come cut him by with a german defense minister who is the, the german base in tashkent to new beckett's done where people have been evacuated out and retreating, troops have gone to is they've left cobble before they end up back in germany, she said that mission would really come to a close. we did hear from anglo merkel, both the german chancellor saying that the time was really running out to get
5:23 am
people out of afghanistan. right now. we know that the window of opportunities, closing 10000 people could be brought to safety today, i want to reaffirm that we will not forgive those who can no longer be rescued by air latest. we'll continue to try to get them out of the country. the foreign ministry is talking to the taliban about this, and we will also coordinate internationally on how we should proceed. we will, and the airline to date. well, franz had said that they were ending their lift. however, in the last few moments, we understand that paris is looking at extending not 4 hours, perhaps even a few more days. up towards the 31st of august deadline, we had heard from the french president manually. my call. he said that there were 20 bosses of french national bond guns that france has taken responsibility for and
5:24 am
want to get out of the country waiting either asked or nearby to cobble air for the french president and acknowledge that the time that getting those people out with going to be difficult, and if there was a possibility that some wouldn't be able to be evacuated. so we have known these risks since the thought given the confusion, that rains and bolts and the tensions at the airport. the next few hours will continue to be extremely risky in both couple and the safety reasons, the bus that will not remain enough gun and then he will remain on bus many. and we will continue to have an ambassador and a team and an embassy for africa, as we are not recognizing a regime, a country, as well. the u. k. minister of defense ben wallace was doing the rounds on british media on friday morning. and one interview i heard, he said, he only wished they had 7 more days in order to get people out of the country. they don't have time. in fact, mister wallace went on to suggest that the british presence on the ground enough
5:25 am
galveston could be wrapped up in a matter of hours. not so much a matter of days. we will process those people that we have brought with us the size and people approximately inside the field now. and we or seek away to continue to find a few people in the crime where we can. but overall, the main processing has not closed and we have a matter of eyes. there are still people that are going to be in afghanistan that we couldn't get out. we've also had news coming out of ankara, the turkey having decided on a proposal that had been put to it by the taliban. now this was a proposal to try and help keep cobble airport after keep couple, if or open after the 31st of august, the deadline, what the taliban was still insisting on is that turkish troops, asphalt had made. so would have to get out of the country, but they've asked for technical help from ankara in order to keep the airport open for little bit longer. president of turkey said he still hadn't decided what his
5:26 am
country's answer to that request would be. well, we'll be listening in to what comes out of the meeting between the italian prime minister of foreign minister and the russian foreign minister said gala prop, we're expecting that i've got a son, we'll be up on their agenda as well. in any news that comes out is that of course, i'll bring it to you here on our c correspondent. think to oliver with the latest political unless shall be runs, the believes that the west intervention and i've counted is what gave rise to isis in the 1st place. and the evil is spread by, by the western element when west and central asia under the guise of warren tara had said to make defeat. it was fun. i says, is a creation of mister marker on, you know, i would need to ship been u k. the political elite and washington, but the reality is they want to give the world and impression that they have the
