1:07 am
confirm for me that he is there. thank you. talks in qatar between taliban officials and the u.s. special envoy to afghanistan is on my head are to continuing to assert day the discussions began on monday hours after one of the worst taliban attacks in seventeen years of the war in afghanistan at least sixty five afghan intelligence and security personnel were killed and one u.s. military service member the suicide bomb and gun attack happened near my down shot of the capital of water that province. has before. it's one of the worst attacks by the taliban says the armed group was pushed from power by u.s. forces in late two thousand and one a suicide bomber drove a truck packed with explosives into
1:08 am
a military compound what followed was carnage officials and witnesses say several dozens of people have been killed and this happened it was a very dangerous incident and the sound of the explosion was very loud the windows of our house and other houses close to the area were broken and the wounded ones were taken to different hospitals here and leak out of. the facility is a brand by an elite intelligence unit in charge of training tribesman to fight the taliban. the attack is another indication of the armed groups growing influence last year taliban fighters launched a series of attacks across the country including a suicide bomb attack in the capital kabul in january at least one hundred people were killed mostly civilians analysts believe the taliban is increasing its attacks
1:09 am
to gain more leverage in crucial talks with u.s. diplomats in qatar what we are good in my down shot was a good forward the united states in the afghan government is doing to the taliban so the taliban are i think coming out of that hibernation premier they are trying to carry on the same policy where do going to inflict damage to the afghan government and its international counterparts and talks are underway in doha where the taliban has a political office u.s. special representative for afghan peace zalmai is meeting senior taliban members here the talks are underway to find. and to the war in afghanistan and establish a unity government the u.s. envoy recently toured the region seeking help from our allies including pakistan and in many ways the role of pakistan is key the u.s.
1:10 am
negotiator ambassador zalmay hollis art was just in pakistan for several days before he went to doha and the pakistani prime minister imran khan is visiting doha as well it's not clear exactly what role pakistan is playing but they may be playing a newly positive role but peace won't be easy the taliban does not recognize the government in kabul and insists peace talks will only start when foreign troops leave afghanistan. a mentally ill is a security analyst based in kabul he explained why peace negotiations haven't been successful so far. the problem with negotiation is. when we have a negotiation it's not only limited to afghanistan it's very rare we should not expect a reduction in violence there is a possibility of increase in violence even if we have.
1:11 am
to try to increase the leverage there do su by increasing while and i believe that original countries. also have a role to play in negotiating negotiation. about the issue of afghanistan but finally it comes to people it should be the afghan people and it is people who has the potential to resolve the problems international community u.s. and other states. can play a role of mediation but they are not the actual people to resolve the problem so it should be that people taliban and can go to mention should come together and they should talk to each other to resolve the problem a car bomb is that's needed in the syrian city of latakia killing one person injuring fourteen that's according to state media footage on state t.v. show the aftermath of the incident at takia is a government stronghold that's home to

1:13 am
watch syrian state television just moments after the blast was reported in. they had analysts on air warning of a new phase in the in the conflict already predicting more attacks in government controlled areas saying that they expect the situation the security situation to destabilize even further now many of the opposition will say this is the way the government tries to keep people on their side to make up for their inability to provide for fuel improve the living conditions because public resentment discontent is growing in government controlled areas yes they control sixty percent of the syria but about sixty percent of syria people are still struggling and the government is struggling to get recognition from outside for sanctions to be lifted in order for it to reconstruct and in order for the economy to improve so now the sit to security situation stabilizing within the government controlled territories
