pakistan to terrorism and support to the insurgency in kashmir these are the real key issues kashmir terrorism. the celebrations at the border are unlikely to last long as the roots of the kashmir dispute remain deep seated as attempts are made to deescalate tensions between india and pakistan continue to complain they're the ones caught in the middle and those from indeed in mr kashmir accuse the indian government of not doing enough for them not just now but over many years. before the pilots release there was a funeral in india administered kashmir it was for woman killed by shelling between india and pakistan that began on wednesday across the line of control that divides mere people here complain they always suffer when pakistan and. the fight and there's renewed concerns about the indian government's policies in the administered kashmir a new crop of young educated people they have taken to the stones but this is something which is unprecedented this former kashmiri civil servant made news for

10:05 am
weeks now and certainly overnight on friday what we've been able to ascertain is that shelling in the punch area again hit villages and one house in particular where a mother and her two young children were killed instantly and the father is critically ill now he's in hospital in a round about fifty kilometers further north of pooches a small area of. is very close to the line of control and there the shelling was so heavy that people have been evacuated and are very concerned about their own safety as are the authorities in the region so while the focus has been on the release of the indian pilot the tension continues the shelling across the border continues in the kashmir region and so what happens now that the pilot's been released tensions are dissipating and well potentially diplomatically.
10:06 am
yes it depends on who you ask actually as to about the tension in terms of the initial relief that the pilot was released yes the indian media media were awash with coverage both on the television and in fact let's look at today's papers because here in india he is the only story. there in civilian clothes at the border being released main story there but also here in the by lines is the talk about the indian foreign minister speaking about terror groups in neighboring countries i.e. pakistan and how she addressed the organization of islamic conference in abu dhabi and that is still reverberating across the islamic world because pakistan did not attend that conference and many think that they shot themselves in the foot by not being able to address exactly india's complaints there of course india had a captive audience of over fifty five islamic countries willing to listen to what

10:10 am
group behind the group in the presidency backed up by the cynical economic burns the leading business. and the army and the security. who are trying to force their own choice to guarantee their continuity in power and that's a large areas really object to beautifully kept presided over the end of the bloody algerian civil war in two thousand and two and a return to international affairs following decades of isolation. but demonstrators say it's time for algeria's longest serving head of state to retire from politics leave. the taliban has claimed responsibility for an attack on an army base in afghanistan which killed at least twenty three afghan soldiers the shura back base in helmand province is shared by afghan and american troops the afghan defense ministry says twenty attackers including eight suicide bombers were killed
10:11 am
meanwhile high level talks between the u.s. and the taliban are expected to resume on saturday in doha u.s. envoy zalmay khalilzad says an earlier round ended with unprecedented progress to end the seventeen year war the taliban is refusing to directly negotiate with the afghan government and it wants foreign forces to withdraw its delegation is led by the co-founder of the group abdul ghani baradar well let's cross over to the afghan capital of kabul where charlotte bellus is live for us now charlotte walk us through what happened in this attack in helmand. this attack started at two o'clock yesterday morning that lasted sixteen hours a fairly significant use today we were trying to get information from various military sources and everyone was incredibly tight lipped afghan side there was saying yes we are under attack we do have casualties but we can't tell you how many the way sources were saying look this really isn't a big deal we don't have any casualties none of our guys are hurt we share this
10:12 am
space with them but only the afghans speak for themselves i mean the taliban was saying we've killed seventy americans everyone with vastly different stories finally the pictures started to come play at night last night with the u.a.e. saying well they had been kind of playing it down to me in the day we were involved we did support the afghans on the ground and with some of course terrible optics really when you've got the taliban you waste talks in doha going on at the same time earlier this week the top afghan. general miller has been shaking hands with taliban commanders trying to come to some type of deal about a with rule and then back here in afghanistan you've got the taliban attacking and you expect optics on great on that the taliban this isn't a coincidence the timing they do this to try to put pressure on to these negotiations in january on the first day of the talks they launched a complex attack with
10:13 am
a truck bomb on an intelligent space in provence they have multiple casualties so they use this to try to put pressure on the negotiations and say this is what we can do if you don't play ball and that so as these talks do continue and it does appear the taliban are trying to use the afghan military as pawns in the negotiations. and these kinds of attacks the taliban kind of attacking afghan military installations to put pressure on the americans but then you know at this point the afghans are kind of stuck in the middle because they're not involved in the negotiations and yet they're taking casualties there's a lot of talk about what is. going on and are hard how they're being represented if the rights of being protected particularly women are concerned because they remember back during taliban days the rights were very restrictive and so three and a half thousand women came to kabul this way and the first two were going to war means loya jirga in afghanistan to make sure that their voices are being heard in this process. afghan woman
10:14 am
a refusing to be left behind in political negotiations they say they want to present a unified front as the taliban in the united states hold talks to end seventeen years of who today there are four women behind them a fifteen thousand other they spoke after the largest national women's jirga council as the taliban met with the u.s. and doha this was a parallel meeting except men were replaced by woman whom i did everyone came to say their perspective it was a proud moment for me among these women we cannot travel to other provinces because of security but this allowed us to be united the national women's jirga was the result of a grassroots movement that began in kabul in august and spirit to all of afghanistan's thirty four provinces influential women from each province late the meetings the format included a question and answer session where they discussed women's legal and constitutional
10:15 am
rights their role in islam and afghan culture then each province wrote a statement of their demands for peace these declarations blind what they want and will fight for should the u.s. and taliban agree to a deal a scene a sufi is the acting minister of information and culture the government backs the woman's jirga but she denied they were all president danny supporters they were not all government. they were all women who believed in who have analyzed their involvement from different social economic political nonpolitical government non-government civil society addresses where they would. see that we have federal there is concern the taliban could roll back hard for women's rights but many women say it's conservative afghan values that they're rallying against and need protection from
10:16 am
the provincial meetings were held in secret to protect women from any backlash the woman's jirga highly guarded a circus and most people are not among the taliban but they are like taliban just suit and ties we can understand from their words that we are in danger they have the old conservative mentality that it's a threat for us and we feel they may try to kill us president danny is organizing a lawyer jirga in mid march with four thousand people men and women it's a national council to discuss their priorities in future negotiations these women will be there to determine that their voices are not forgotten shalah ballasts. the weather is next but still ahead on al-jazeera the north korean leader is all smiles as he departs vietnam after a failed summit and the push for new friends when live and huddling. and fears over the impact of brecht said on science we visit the historic university of cambridge .

hello again i missed and a reminder of the news this hour at least three people have died in a cross border shelling between india and pakistan in the disputed kashmir region indian officials say a mother and her two children were killed and tensions remain high after islamabad and new delhi said they chopped down each other's jets on wednesday. hundreds of thousands of people have rallied across algeria over president these beautifully because planned to run for a fifth term next month police five tear gas that some protesters analogy is but

the demonstrations peaceful. the taliban has claimed responsibility for an attack on an army base in afghanistan which killed at least twenty three afghan soldiers high level talks between the u.s. and taliban are expected to resume in qatar they say. well north korean leader kim jong un is on his way back home after four days in vietnam kim took an all mage train from the china vietnam border that he stayed on and how noise for an official visit to denuclearization talks broke down with u.s. president donald trump vietnam's relationship with the us was supposed to be an example for pyongyang it too was once considered an enemy of washington well let's talk about it get a james in hanoi james given that the summit with trump ended with no agreement what do you think's at the forefront of kim's mind as he returns home. well he stayed on here in vietnam for an extra two days because he has to take
10:21 am
advantage of the fact he is here he runs an isolated country there are the most comprehensive sanctions on north korea of any country ever in the world so being here in an important asian country one that's an economic powerhouse has seen growth well in the double figures for more than twenty years he needs to make relationships in places like this he has having gone to the to move. to the more the liam paid his respects to a man who was a contemporary of his own grandfather headed back to china and back on that train a very long journey all the way across china i think time for a real reflection from the north korean leader did he overplay his hand by asking for so many sanctions to be lifted something that the americans thought was a step too far and a step key early this likely diplomatic process has been going now for a year since the winter olympics in that time there's always been
10:22 am
a next step right now because of the collapse of these talks there really isn't a next step but i think it now falls to the south koreans and president moon he's talked about another summit with kim and they've talked about having that summit in seoul to build on their own. relationship between the two countries that summit if it takes place i think is now going to have to try and rescue the process diplomatic editor james bone is there live for us and henry thank you james u.s. president donald trump has asked china to lift all tariffs on american agricultural products he says it's because trade talks between the world's two largest economies are progressing well trump also pointed out that he didn't impose twenty five percent tariffs on friday as he'd originally planned china and the u.s. are trying to negotiate a way out of the trade war that seem to terrorists hikes since last year.
