oh yeah wait. iranian oil tanker that was seized off the coast of set sail after a us request to have it held again is tonight. again this is al jazeera live from doha i'm adrian finnegan also coming up we have been very good discussions with the taliban who have a very good discussions with the afghan government u.s. president donald trump says that progress is being made in afghanistan talks and gives a clearer picture of how many american troops will stay that. sudan's transitional
8:51 am
council to announce the names of the group that will lead the country's new democratic transition. of hundreds of thousands of hong kong defy the government and the weather to stage another protest. the iranian oil tanker held for 6 weeks off the coast of set sail brought to refuse to quote a request from the u.s. department of justice to seize the vessel a supreme court judge in the british territory ordered the tank is released let's go live now to gibraltar i was here as andrew symonds is there so i'm sure it's set sail but where is it going. that's the $1000000.00 question it is heading east into the mediterranean it's destination unknown its transponder is simply saying mediterranean but there it is now complying with
8:52 am
all maritime law having been reflagged and having the names adrian warm on all relevant parts of this vessel with a cargo of a hot $140000000.00 worth of light crude oil the preparations took a long time there were some technical difficulties we saw some crew be winched on to the ship something like 4 or 5 hours ago we were alongside in very choppy waters an engineer specialist engineer was there for around 4 to 5 hours before being shipped back to shore once he bent back to sure then that radio message you played out of the top of the show was heard. was brought up from 80 me to debts and slowly the bulk of the tanker maneuvered out of the anchorage into the straits of gibraltar then swung east into the mediterranean it's getting up to
8:53 am
speed now where entirely unsure of what's going to happen next diplomatically or nautically or anything else as far as the supreme court goes in japan it is complying with the e.u. sanctions now because iran gave a guarantee a written guarantee to the court that it would not go to syria however since then the iranian foreign ministry has declared that it would actually go it could go any way it wanted to iran was not bound by any statute from the e.u. all the us and the us in particular is cynical about the situation it wanted the seizure of the ship. then issued a warrant through a district court which again on sunday here in gibraltar there was a reiteration of the gibraltar position and the e.u.'s position in that they had
8:54 am
separate sanctions from the u.s. on iran and hey you're seeing the political dimension here the softer line taken by the e.u. the harder line taken by the united states was the was a much broader range of sanctions targeting the i r c g which is the islamic revolutionary guard corps who they say own the ship which is a terrorist organization whereas gibraltar insists that there is no category of terrorist organization put on the name of c.g. budget bolter the u.k. or indeed the entire you therefore they regard it as being compliant is there any realistic chance under this or least going to end up in syria. well there are a lot of cynical people around not just the united states who feel that whatever was written may not be really worth the paper the pen was put to there are a number of maritime experts who say that there could be a trans shipment from another port lebannon has been declared as
8:55 am
a possibility it could be offshore it could it could lie offshore from lebanon on a possibly and this is speculation by the way and then that could be a trance shipment but this ship is the most trucked of any vessel in the world right now it's colossal it is transponders are working it is putting out a signal anybody could pick an i phone up and download an app and see exactly where it's going you know it's it is it is really mistreat a way as to where it's going but any real feeling that this is now going to lift all the tension in the strait of hormuz might be misguided it is entirely unsure because remember 2 weeks after this ship was seized on all july the 4th there was the seizure of a british flag ship by the iranians in the strait of hormuz that ship is still detained it was a tit for tat sort of thing from iran now the u.k.
8:56 am
in wanting to take some of the tension out of it said bolter saying this is try to deescalate the situation well they expect to see the release of that tanker that remains to be seen but of course of the united states takes any action i mean it may be far fetched to think that they would actually board and try to detain this ship in international waters if that sort of thing happened then obviously the escalation would be immense and who knows what will happen next if if the u.s. is intent on pursuing this every step of the way then there could be more escalation it's a it's unclear it's about as unclear as some of the mist and fog that's been coming down on this tiny part of the british territory. over the past few days after many thanks i was there as anderson is reporting live there from to brought up. u.s. president will trump has given a clearer picture about the number of u.s. troops that will remain in afghanistan saying that around 13000 will stay in the
8:57 am
country his announcement comes as eisel claimed responsibility for one of the deadliest attacks in the last 18 months in kabul trump also said he's had very good talks between the taliban and the afghan government we're talking to afghanistan of both the government and also talking to the taliban have a very good discussions we'll see what happens we've really got it down to probably 13000 people and we'll be bringing it down a little bit more there will decide whether or not we'll be staying longer or not we haven't very good discussions with the taliban who have a very good discussions with the afghan government i think it's very important that we continue intelligence there in all cases because it is somewhat of a nest for him to get us and we have things under control very well with a small force we can probably make it a little bit smaller and then we'll decide it will depend on the taliban it will
8:58 am
depend on the afghan government. but there is a case to be made and the case also is that we're going to be leaving very significant intelligence behind for just the reasons i stated in afghanistan families have begun to bury those killed in saturday's attack eisel claimed responsibility for killing 63 people who were attending a wedding reception just a warning that you may find some of the pictures in charlotte palaces reports to stopping. awaiting that a suicide bomber turned into a massacre these people are waiting to hear with their relatives and friends survived still want to go i want to stick that i'm here to find out about my son to find out if he's ok some people say that his neck is injured some people say his hand is injured he's not answering his phone i don't know what to do. more than 1000 people at the waiting for a young couple from afghan shia muslim minority to his zahra the marriage
8:59 am

9:00 am
a wedding this can happen i do not know if i'll be alive in an hour or not. so respond was made up of 7 family members his brothers and cousins they were on stage preparing to play during the waiting dinner when the bomb went off so race is the only survivor. and this is what he would have plays at the wedding hall stuff cleaned up a mop the ground not the spilled drink but the spilled blood they lost colleagues to her with dozens killed in the early 200 injured this was the deadliest explosion in kabul in more than 18 months of the series family brought us to a hill overlooking the city here is where the band's trauma mohamed haneef was buried just hours earlier on the obama vs and you're going on mars.
