been confirmed but don't forget that the afghan government normally downplay the number of the casualties the number is far higher than what they are claiming to be more more than one hundred fifty people or one most of them civilians the attack happened in a very crowded place in the heart of the capital where there lies all these government offices and it was closed while. young couple of other you were in office and also other embassies there it happened at the really thought time because normally afghans of this time of the day they go outside to have a lunch. how are the people in afghanistan coping right now with the situation. will president of afghanistan couple of days ago in an interview say that afghanistan is under siege call is under siege so it really is under siege i mean no the only call the other provinces are under siege people are really fed up people are really sad about what is happening and people are quite concerned about
the future as well because nowhere is safe these days i mean now imagine a car full of explosives they come. through a checkpoint a security checkpoint seems that there are those of infiltrate within the security . as well like for example getting back to what happened in the intercontinental that will go to their evidence example of you know how does your situation is like but people are really really bad i mean let me remind you on social media afghans have been taking on criticizing the afghan government saying that they have failed in ensuring the security of its citizens. it's not a nice mage's event i there there have been many attacks in afghanistan maybe can you tell us why that is. well it is because the afghan government seems to be quite busy with internal and domestic politics what people call here are busy politics so little of forgetting that there is a higher
a much more important you know responsibility that they have got to ensure security on the other hand there is also infiltration also an emergence of the so-called crisis here in afghanistan too because now most of these attacks are being acclaimed the by the i think the taliban and on the other hand here is not a very good thing process wise people didn't fly and of course in a suit is very vulnerable all over the country even though there are thousands of afghans back in kabul but because as i said let me remind the audience that the afghan government this is the internal politics so that's why the four did that here is you know something much more important which is security so that's why we have. been witnessing a series of attacks across the country especially in the capital kabul over the last few weeks and breezy here how are the authorities in kabul dealing with the aftermath of this incident well on the one i've got here here is
