claimed responsibility is the third attack in kabul in recent days including this weekend's powerful car bomb where the talabani used an ambulance as a weapon. all right and then we can take you to kabul now of where the security situation has been very precarious for some time now but the uptick in violence over the past couple of days is very concerning and journalists are here contrary is on the line from the capital with the latest terror what is the situation in kabul right now. well the situation in call everyone is in shock and everyone is terry and horrifies of the recent terrorist attacks because it was in the attack the only attack today we have had a couple of attack over the last few days in fact three attacks over the last ten days in kabul and hardly more than two hundred people killed so people are still in or even though the afghan government a declared
a public holiday today because the indonesian president was coming to afghanistan is in afghanistan so that's why but it's still people there are still thinking until morning about the loss of loads of civilians and nobody knows why all right walter why is kabul facing such an uptick of a kabul city and the president of afghanistan recently say this call is very speedy but the afghan people here don't believe that it's not only kabul but the whole afghanistan is under siege and the toll of them. can come in has recently been so much full of the internal politics so therefore god in that period you know a priority for them for example three security ministers appeared in a press conference yesterday trio been people who are accused additionally sit down as soon as possible but they don't so seems like the afghan government as well people here accuse the afghan government of a failure but then the afghan government accuses the regional countries some specific countries or interfering into going to hear the security it is you know
a blame game that afghans don't like it here because everyone wants some sort of accountability at this point all right now i hear you're already alluded to the fact that to the in the nation president jacoby doto is visiting kabul what does that say about president a shotgun his government and the security forces the ability to secure kabul the capital. it is not the first time actually when a high profile foreigner or in the town explains so it is very unfortunate even though the afghan government wanted to because there has been an outcry an outburst of prostration by public over the last few days to the afghan government thought to be to declare today of the holidays so that nobody may take to the streets in protest but like that you know unlike these onto the expectation of the afghan government today another attack took place so it was very unfortunate and even did an afghan government didn't expect it and i'm sure it was in
a very good well coming to the indonesian president but it is not the first time with such attacks take place when high profile people come to afghanistan so that's why gunfire quite complicating that is to become of the a polity of the president or ensuring security to her kaderi with tell the news television in kabul thank you. and today's attack in kabul was claimed by so-called islamic state while the group is facing major setbacks on the ground in syria and iraq and that means many of its fighters are returning to their home countries at least five thousand of them came from europe what kind of threat do battle hardened veterans pose to their hometowns in places like germany france britain and other countries the largest single group of iowa's foreign fighters was from belgium are brussels correspondent teri schultz traced their tracks. this park in antwerp was a hotspot for islamised recruiters luring young belgians to battlefields in syria and iraq now some of them are headed back making many communities nervous earlier
returning is trying to reintegrate in society are reluctant to be identified antwerp city councilor he shall moans there are no some of them personally and ask them to share their stories with me nobody was willing to speak with many of them came back with a huge feeling of shame. and they don't want. to show that name to refer to be on t.v. to say i went there and i was a fool and they came back there are some exceptions laura persone was all over t.v. in two thousand and sixteen publicizing her book about being an islamic state militants bride in syria she decided to escape when her four year old son was taught to behead a teddy bear as shown in this jihadi propaganda now because so many occasionally visit schools as part of the belgian government's anti radicalization efforts but she declined our multiple requests for an interview some are attorneys have other motives for staying in the shadows those are the ones that were there and towards
the muslim community you don't want to see the back and to be obviously don't show any feeding off of shame. for st it's about the fact that. he's losing. but you know here. that's our attorney mikail della for three seems to feel set free after receiving a suspended sentence for three also wrote a book and publicly praised islamic state he said his only regret was coming back we couldn't speak with him as he's in prison on unrelated charges sources tell me are attorneys and their families are urged to keep a low profile by belgian authorities but they're not the only ones i'm told the brother of a belgian fighter gave a television interview a couple of years ago. with his identity disguised but islamic state supporters found him and beat him up very badly a warning to others to keep quiet local communities are figuring out how to deal

a success story two years later but there are more i guess followers being groomed peter van listing in one of the best known researchers of the belgian jihad movement says he sees no decrease in pro jihad language on social media how strong is their influence well basically we will only know when the next that that happens i'm afraid however the belgian government appears a bit more optimistic than venomous d.m. it has reduced to the national terror threat level meaning an attack is no longer considered probable but rather unlikely. want to tell you about some of the other stories making news around the world right now. observers say at least sixty civilians have been killed in government air strikes on syria is it live prabhat small that brings the death toll to some thirty three people since sunday it lip is the only problem is that syria under the control of opposition forces the government troops have been making advances there in recent weeks. israel's prime
