presented the explosion happened near the stage where the musicians were all of a young people and all the people who were there were killed some are wounded and now they're in the hospital and others are dead. this nearby hospital needed every bit of space to accommodate the victims they had arrived in a massive wave of distress. of all of them or can borrow more than we came to the site of the blast and i saw that many women and children were screaming and crying many martyrs and injured people were transferred by the ambulances and it was really a terrible situation. beyond the weddings themselves wedding halls are also used as simple meeting places for small and large gatherings that's made them the target of a local affiliate of the so-called islamic state. last november at least $55.00 people were killed when a suicide bomber attacked hundreds of muslim scholars and clerics gathered in another kabul wedding hall to mark the birthday of the prophet muhammad. i'm joined
5:08 pm
now by journalist allie latif in kabul ali thanks for joining me this so-called islamic state say they're responsible for this attack is there any proof of that. i mean the only proof we have is basically their claim they're not in the least calling card and there's really no way to know that but they did actually name the bomber a genocide and the. last name of. which you know to a lot of ups which will lead to a lot of suspicions in this country because you know don has always been accused of aiding and abetting different armed groups here novel honest fan so literally in these kinds of cases the only proves the only evidence we have is what they claim themselves. and when we talk about afghanistan anyway when you're talking about the taliban so when an i.a.s. fit into all of this and what do they want. so this is exactly the problem is that
5:09 pm
they're sort of there's this rogue group where people in the areas where they gained a lot of traction for instance in the east i've been talking to people in these areas since 201-314-2015 they always say these people come out of nowhere we don't really know what they where they come from we don't understand who they are really is understand the way they speak what they do say like the taliban or think muslims and they kick the taliban out and then they take over and they're really known for their brutality they often claim that they will take women from the area as brides for themselves. widowers or young unmarried women like telling people to hang flags on their houses and things like that it's never been fully proven because as soon as people hear that they leave the area as soon as they can as soon as they hear the name diy they flee the area and the problem is is that with the taliban you generally have a sense that you know they have a leadership they have
5:10 pm
a spokesman you know their leadership is able to say in doha and negotiate with the top with the united states with these diets forces we don't know who they are we don't know what they want and there's really no way even if that's if there were to be talks with them or you and speak to and what is it that you're going to try and negotiate around. in kabul afghanistan thank you very much representatives from 180 nations are meeting in geneva to agree on protections for vulnerable spaces like elephants the trade in ivory has been banned worldwide for years but some african countries say the ban is unnecessary they want restrictions on elephant and ivory exports to be listened. elephant tracks go straight across daniel jeremiah's field the small farmer lives in cousin on the edge of tobie national park the packet derms often enter his farm and eat or trample his crops you know a lot of them to come every day and you can see. anything
5:11 pm
. there. botswana is home to africa's largest elephant population with around 150000 the number is growing in some areas there have been deadly encounters between humans and elephants in may bouts want to lifted a 5 year hunting ban now the country's going a step further by pushing for limited ivory trade at the world wildlife conference in geneva scientists fear that could also lead to more illegal trade in ivory we know that within africa we really struggle to control trade of products like wildlife and we struggle to sort of monitor it and regulate the legal side of things and we cannot pretend we are not stopping the illegal side of things i mean it's theoretically possible that poaching could get worse and of course and that
5:12 pm
that's why that's a worse outcome for elephants effective controls are needed to ensure that only tusks from illegal haunting are traded but countries with rampant corruption often lack such oversight and that could worsen the plight of elephants. and sports news now and in major league baseball germany's max kepler of the minnesota twins has broken a 60 year here old record for the 1st of the most time runs in a statement by a european born player it happened on friday when the van in native knocked in a home run against the take this rain just to make that he 3 that breaks the record set by scottish born bobby thompson back and 951 for the new york giants minnesota went on to win 4 to 3. and in german 2nd opened open they want to slake a campaign at home to out bog they were keen to take advantage of by munich stroll with head to bell and on friday dortmund had an early frights but quickly recovered . dortmund fans are hoping that this is their year and off their bye and opening
