5:33 pm
a motorcycle shop the 2 women in an ambush on their car the driver of the court vehicle was injured afghan president ashraf ghani blamed the attack on the taliban and called on the insurgent group to accept the permanent ceasefire with the afghan army the taliban say they were not responsible for the killings. the attack comes amid ongoing peace talks with the taliban in qatar women's rights activists have warned the talks could lead to a decrease in rights they have gained over the last 2 decades attacks on u.s. forces have stopped in afghanistan after the trumpet ministration began withdrawing troops as part of a deal brokered with the taliban talks with the afghan government however have stalled amid ongoing violence. if the blood is gone but the fear remains the last 20 years saw significant progress for women in afghanistan with this latest attack fears are the clock could be turned back on
5:34 pm
that progress. during an offer. moore is journalists are they look they see from. a wave of attacks on people in the arx media and government is this being viewed as a deliberate strategy by militant groups or negotiating tactic to strengthen the taliban's home during ongoing talks it's definitely seen as a liberal strategy whoever is conducting these attacks and i think that that's the biggest fear and the biggest issue for people is that we still don't know the government says that 99 percent of these attacks are by the taliban the taliban and vehemently tonight this and it's actually very difficult to prove exactly who is behind these attacks so whatever it is it's a question of is it specific is it just that liberal strategy or is it a deliberate strategy tied with copycat where other groups and mafia and.
5:35 pm
you know other actors could be taking advantage of this moment to target basically whoever they dislike for whatever reason that's really the biggest fear of the people is that they have no sense of exactly what's behind these attacks and who could be perpetrating them whether it's one hooper several. and why these attacks occurring on you also have these talks going on with the taliban in the door i mean do these talks have any meaning in them now. get problem in like this is this what we have to remember that it's been something like 3 or 4 months now that the talks were supposed to have officially begun but at this point the talks are still very much you know they're what they have been since 20112012 when the taliban 1st write it off it's still in the issue of talks about talks it's still them discussing the specific points of the gender and of. who will attend what discussions and what they will say and how the structure it's nowhere near the actual level of direct.
5:36 pm
point it talks about very specific issues yet it still very much still it just sticks going on you know what like 8910 years later. not one of the get into the taliban give to the united states at the time of agreeing to the door talks of the afghan government is that they wouldn't allow tax to continue under them now given what's happening does that get into you have a new weight behind it. well the thing is like you know we have to know that we still don't know what is behind the specific target killings and these sorts of issues so it's all on a possible tonight bill to you that sense but there have been attacks that have staged you know they specifically said that we want to act as tricks actors that we want to track big cities that we want to act i think populated areas and they have been doing that they have been several instances of that we are they themselves us
5:37 pm
that we did this you know they may be smaller cities but they're still at the provincial capital. and so there are questions of whether that brought in the spirit of the agreement and then the taliban also says the u.s. resuming certain levels of airstrikes and things like that that kind of spirit but it seems that neither side wants to leave the ditch deal all together in the middle of all of this the united states has reduced its troop presence considerably with the new administration coming in the united states in the mother middle of the we does the out of con government who want another version of the rule of the taliban or potentially u.s. commitments in afghanistan. oh i've been talking to people within the government for several months now and the one thing they all want is a direct answer at this point they're saying listen if you want to stay stay but be committed and tell us what your level of commitment is be very upfront you know
5:38 pm
tell us specifically what you're going to do and if you're going to meet than just late you know just tell us this date we're leaving we're off you know the rest is up to you but at the end of the day all the government wants is a solid answer yes or no but just tell us exactly what you need to know more of this wishy washy no more because if you look at the top it meant she was very back and forth you know for a while trump was saying he absolutely refused to just then negotiate with the taliban and. al just a little less than a year later he began the negotiations several times he's threatened to take out and resolder so at the end of the day all the government wants a clear direct answer. in a thief in kabul to relieve it there but thank you so much for joining us. medics in indonesia sort of a.c.r. linda battling exhaustion and the risk of covered 19 as a treat scores of people injured by last week's earthquake more than 80 people were killed and thousands left homeless by the powerful 6.2 back to do it quake that

in about 4 months that's pretty quick for a movie of the scale is it any good though what it's got mixed reviews at best though some might say. pad and. some people calling it an irritating heist comedy wonder if you even going as far as to suggest warn the public that they should keep a social distance from this no doesn't sound like mixed reviews adrian though is one outlier though that said it could have a message that might resonate that message would be that in order to survive the pandemic it might be necessary to go crazy ok well we're already obviously already practicing that it will be interesting to see people on screen wearing masks and not just the like where they're wearing a mask but not all the movies that are dealing with this pandemic are this silly there are also some pretty serious cultural respect for one of the 1st out of the block was a way he made a documentary film tributes to the health workers in hand who were working in the
