this is. pushing for peace in afghanistan the u.s. says talks with the taliban are making progress. seventeen years of war and given the terrible legacy of the taliban in afghanistan. people view the prospect of their return. also coming up. the mess crisis sweeping through more locals are struggling to cope with sucked into the.
drug trade. and football's kings of europe are champions league title. on the first leg four times in madrid. thanks for joining us we'll have more on all those stories in just a moment but first reports are coming in that at least sixteen people have been killed in a militant attack in the eastern afghan city of jalalabad it's hackers are said to have targeted a construction company near the city's airport suicide bombers first set off explosives before armed men stormed the building triggering an exchange of fire with security forces. the attack. in jalalabad says negotiations continue
between the taliban and u.s. officials in qatar the talks are aimed at ending more than seventeen years of bible and the taliban have launched a charm offensive ahead of a u.s. troop withdrawal many afghans are worried about the role that the taliban might play in afghanistan's future. malawi calum again once wielded enormous power he led the enforcement of taliban regulations during their rule of afghanistan from one thousand nine hundred ninety six to two thousand and one now he's hoping for a comeback as the taliban and the us hold peace talks after years of guerrilla warfare the taliban want to be in charge again callum again says that's long overdue. to see the. fans want to live in the shari'a law again how a holy war wasn't in vain. i want to share your lore again not just
the holy warriors from the taliban. afghanistan under taliban rule movie theaters destroyed films burnt everything considered western was strictly forbidden men were forbidden from shaving their beards women were forced to wear burkas infractions were met with severe punishment prison or death by stoning callen moving today has a different spin on this brutal oppression. we never punished anyone better than those people advice and if we threatened anyone because he didn't have a big it wasn't because we wanted to it's one of god's commandments for men as covering up for women those who want to be a law must accept these rules. afghanistan is a conservative islamic society but the country has changed in recent years more than half the population is under the age of eighteen most young afghans want the
war to end but they reject the idea of others telling them how to live their lives . at least there isn't censorship of the internet not yet anyway. i'm afraid if a taliban is not just the internet we would lose all of our freedoms. the taliban present themselves as more moderate than before but now we call them again appears on talk shows to promote his interpretation of islam but western analysts consider this a charm offensive not a sign of long term change. in the lytle to secure individual and democratic rights this is doubtful with the taliban they haven't presented any clear ideas about how they see the future of afghanistan because of. compromises are inevitable to end the war with the taliban these are likely to come at a high price. let's go back to journalist ali latif in kabul
eliot the u.s. is negotiating with the taliban even though secretary of state my own peo this week called the taliban terrorists how to ordinary people in afghanistan feel about negotiating with the taliban. i mean a thing is the ordinary person wants peace there's a very small majority minority of people who may be anti peace at this moment but everyone wants this war to end because everyone has seen that the very real human cost of this war the biggest problem with these negotiations is that there is not on present other than that all of what the negotiations are between the taliban in the united states which is exactly what the taliban has one stars and once you know do trump administration has sent. as their representative to doha but he's not down as an hour on he is there as a u.s.
representative you know you have to remember that under the bush administration he was u.s. ambassador to afghanistan also later to iraq so there's really no indication that he is there to represent anything having to do with the people of afghanistan or in the government of the on his son he's literally just there for washington the afghan government itself as you pointed out they're not present at the talks and haul what does that say about washington's expectations for the taliban in afghanistan after a u.s. withdrawal. i think the time the us has no other expectations i think they're only expectation that they've made very clear is that the taliban wouldn't allow on a son to be used for attacks on u.s. soil or any of their allies but the truth is that never really happened since two thousand and one and the taliban were not directly involved in that attack anyways the majority of those attackers came from saudi arabia. does not exist at the level
that it used to at that time so there are expectations out of the taleban are very little having to do with the country itself and with the people that they would somehow be joining now there's no guarantee that they would take over the government but when a peace deal is struck as we've seen with previous warlords you know who now serve in vice president who are running for president who are ran for president the past who are who are parliamentarians and and ministers and things like that they will get a chance to to join the government in some way or another but as far as it's being told right now the u.s. has no real expectation of how they will deal with that how the taliban will deal with up on people once they come in back into the fold if the taliban regain control in afghanistan what impact will that have on people's lives on women's rights and education for example. the thing is no one knows i mean because we really don't know what is the i can't stress this enough we really don't know is being negotiated into we don't know it was on my file as art has handed over to the
east of the presidential palace of the taleban and we're just waiting for his announcement so we don't know how involved they could be possibly in a government right away there are chances that they would stand for election things like that but in terms of an immediate government we have no idea what their role will be and the biggest fear for people is that do the taliban realize that it's not one thousand nine hundred six anymore because when they came into power in one thousand nine hundred sixty was a very specific window of time in afghanistan coming out of a civil war coming out of soviet occupation where people were desperate for for a civil war that that that partition kabul that that made it into ethnic ghettos that that that saw hundreds and thousands hundreds if not thousands of rockets being launched every city killing civilians and rape and kidnapping and all of these other abuses you know that's what led to the taliban coming to power that doesn't exist anymore and the fact is that the people of afghanistan are not willing to even quote unquote temper rarely give up their rights for some semblance
of order so this is the message that needs to be conveyed to the taliban and hopefully my follies of who is the only other person at this point talking to them is making sure that they know this. thank you very much for your insights journalist ali t.v. there in kabul now to some of the other stories making headlines around the world today north korea is reported to be rebuilding its long range rocket launch site following the collapse of last week's summit with the u.s. president donald trump satellite images from several u.s. think tanks and south korean intelligence services show evidence of reconstruction u.s. is warned the north it faces fresh sanctions fails to take steps to denuclearize. at least sixteen people are now known to have died after a collapse of a gold mine in indonesia officials say hopes of finding any more survivors are

published a letter in which he said we are at a pivotal moment for our continent a moment when together we need to politically and culturally reinvent the shape of our civilization in a changing world it's the moment for european renewal here's more on the money well maccollins big ideas and how they've been received so far. french president to manuel micron's latest pro european initiative has been widely met with positive reactions across the e.u. member states in his home country concerns over the far right fueled support. i think it's important because as we can see in eastern europe there are more and more parties like victor or buns in hungary nationalist parties that are against freedom of the press against freedom of democracy because meanwhile in berlin a longtime ally of friends an official statement from german chancellor angela merkel spokesperson said the german government supports the quote lively discussion
about the orientation of the e.u. micron's proposals also prompted calls from germany's opposition for berlin to show more of its own initiative one of the you will mostly the government must finally wake up from its hibernation in european politics i just currently acting according to them or to which european project or reshooting died this week be it the digital tax be a whistleblower protection. with european elections just three months away but when is widely supported micron's calls to prevent the manipulation of elections ones that stay here i already see what's being demanded of democracy as i could never have imagined a couple of years ago or that we're really in a situation again we were having to fight for democracy so that is certainly a step in the right direction. but in view they think at least as a strong it's important to do something but i don't know if an agency for democracy would be the right thing because i have
a feeling while some italians in rome supported a united europe now everyone is convinced that mccrone is the man to steer the e.u. back on track. i welcome the european union. i welcome a reconciliation with france with germany because italy needs europe and europe. italy what i said about is a you're a foil so you can definitely create a more prone to spirit but as leader of europe i don't know a soul in hungary however the far right populace government dismissed macro's call for voters to rejects nationalists in upcoming go ropy and elections voters too seemed less concerned. i think it will be somewhere in the middle i don't believe that the extreme right will make such big gain once that's what i think but i'm not an expert on that. but. while some critics complain that mccrone
suggestions don't go far enough toward solving europe's problems others claim that his appeal aims only to feel one thing his personal campaign from a european elections. to china were fears are growing about human rights after it emerged that the government has begun penalizing citizens who engage in so-called anti social behavior some twenty three million people have been blocked from by plane or train tickets because of offenses such as paying not paying taxes or walking a dog without a leash reports shine a light on help china is using personal data not only to boost prosperity but also to tighten control. china fast a nation with a booming economy that produces masses of data. more than eight hundred million people here use the internet and they've embraced digital life like almost no other society payments orders bookings it's all done by smartphone. china's
population is a gigantic bubbling source of data that's veritable boon to chinese companies like the successful voice recognition firm i fly take. the company says they take data protection seriously but they need to use the data to improve their software in a world all that data is used to create a better wallet to light their human save time to increase their efficiency to create more value jobs so i won't i suggest will not care so much about china's government is also constantly collecting data cameras are everywhere many are used for facial recognition chinese society doesn't get to say but people here are generally well disposed towards technological changes at the same time there's increasing awareness about data protection and rules are getting stricter for companies data is the oil it leave for leisure society so we know that data is very
important for most alertly for the artificially tell it is industry etc so. we know that we have to sacrifice or to contribute a certain lots of information data to the company for them to learn this flood of data is giving china's authoritarian government more control over the people they're aiming to build a nationwide social credit system to collect a wide range of data on all citizens like how responsibly they pay their debts so far only pilot projects are in place. compiling a social mechanism that will give advantages to those who are trustworthy and restrict those who disappoint us it's aimed at honoring honesty. and wish more. millions of chinese people have already been blacklisted and apart from flying the list of dishonest people is publicly available on the internet
while it's hard to predict the exact shape and extent of china's digital future many fear there is a very fine line between smart cities and total surveillance. myanmar is battling a deepening drugs crisis this week police seized more than ten million meth pills with a street value of almost twelve million euros yet another massive haul in a country thought to be the world's largest producer of metta and fed i mean. northeastern shan state is the epicenter of meth production with a network of local armed groups linking up with transnational trafficking gangs but it's the rampant drug use in myanmar itself that's causing major concern as drug gangs push cheap pills to a growing number of addicts. is a shame to go home on the twenty seven year old has been a drug addict for almost a decade he left his village for fear of gang violence but he's real escape as
being crystal meth. i use drugs because i get depressed. and they help keep me calm. and. this is the drug of choice for many in myanmar is called yabba locally may have come down at rock bottom prices the u.n. calls it a ruthless strategy to feed local demand. so we're looking at increasing use across the country demand is rising. a youth population which is very vulnerable and a lack of health infrastructure it's it's a crisis looming right now it's not there already. could cause a key town on the supply route to shan states illegal meth labs. the river and so man and of the church goes on that sticks have been fighting the rampant drug use here which is ten parts of the town into no go zones.
anonymous death threats the vigilante operations to a halt but the rivers work continues in the community. he's baptist church also serves as a refute and rehab center. i nine when was a heavy yaba and heroin user he's been trying to keep the habit since two thousand and fourteen. when i ran away once because i couldn't control myself. they dragged me back here and explained all about it to me of after that i really suffered don't sleep for several days. in the seclusion of rehab unknown we keep his addiction in chick with music and prayer.
but outside on the streets a sense still battles with these demons in the thick of me and miles run away drug crisis. sports football the best football club in europe for three years running has been knocked from the champions league rail madrid is out thanks to a surprise loss at home i.x. the club for master down dominated the second leg of this tie in madrid to overcome . a deficit and win five three on aggregate meanwhile it was harry came providing the touch for tottenham as the english club brushed aside business legal leaders dortmund to advance to the quarterfinals. or talk about all this we've got are so busy from our sports sparkman here in studio hey or so the reigning champion with real madrid out why well they've been struggling for a while now in the league at home in the spanish league their twelve points behind league leaders barcelona so they're pretty well don't have a good chance of winning the spanish title they've been knocked out of the spanish
cup to cope with del ray and frankly in this first leg against the dutch team i.x. of amsterdam even though they won two to one away in amsterdam they were not the better side and so in the second leg that the team took the game to them and that's the way to do it against a team that supposedly on paper is stronger than you and the first goal was scored early in the first half by hakeem. and rather and then second goal by the dutch side that was nat and both goals were scored thanks to passes by douche on top of each a serbian midfielder who had struggled for four years in the premier league but he said that night that was the best game of his life and then he scored a spectacular goal himself early in the second half three no up pulled back one goal to make it three one but then finally the dutch scored another one for one to win overall five to three on aggregate in this game and it was just amazing high stakes game very exciting in your opinion would you say ryall were too weak or it's
too strong both i mean ryall were struggling for the reasons i just gave but also i.x. of amsterdam has a pedigree and they created total football. back in the seventy's and they were trying to emulate that again in this game and also they didn't have any respect for real madrid which is also the way to go against a big name team is still the game take the game to them and see what happens all france is the best defense in this case it was for the second dortmund there were hoping for a wonder for some sort of miracle they didn't get it one well that they they copied i axis strategy take the game to them you know so they took the game again. and they created chances tons of chances eleven shots on goal in the first half mark royce was everywhere in this game and they couldn't score that was the end result of the first half and then early in the second half the big gun came out to harry kane and he's of goal scoring machine and he made it one nil for the for the british side and they have danced then for nothing they were just too strong for
dortmund very briefly are more surprises coming up the saving well there's an amazing game. p.s.g. is up against manchester united they won in manchester the french side did and now they're going to go up against at home probably be able to beat the manchester side the match of the side is missing ten starters there got five players teenagers from their football academy that's all desperate is but they're coached by an amazing norwegian who came off the bench once in one thousand nine hundred to win the champions league for manchester united and that is. not so scare to win two to one against match night in extra time he says anything is possible or it says it from did every sport thanks so much. finally to italy where hundreds of thousands flocked to the tuscan coast for the last day of the. huge crowds in the streets for the city's annual carnival parade which is one of the most famous in italy and europe spectators of the recession's massive floats.
