this is. pushing for peace in afghanistan the u.s. says talks with the taliban and qatar are making progress but what will be the price for ending seventeen years of war and given the terrible legacy to the taliban the heart of the afghan people especially women through the prospect of their return we speak to an afghan filmmaker. also coming up the meth crisis sweeping through me and mark locals are struggling to cope with addicts sucked into the countries of ruthless drug trade. new satellite images from north korea are
11:01 am
causing concern they suggest the country is rebuilding a rocket launch site that was dismantled last year as part of peace moves with the u.s. . and in football a stunning development in the champions league defending champs real madrid are out there alone by amsterdam is this the end of an era for one of europe's best clubs. it's great to have you with us afghanistan has been hit by a new wave of violence in the last hours at least sixteen people have been killed in a militant attack in the eastern city of jalalabad the assault began early this morning with militants detonating suicide bombs before storming a construction company near the city's airport security forces rushed to the scene exchanged fire with the attackers. all five of the assailants are now said to be
11:02 am
death. well the attack comes as negotiations between the taliban and u.s. officials continue in qatar the talks are aimed at ending more than seventeen years of violence in afghanistan the taliban have launched a trauma offensive aimed at winning over the international community and the afghan people but as we report many afghans are worried about the role the fundamentalist group will play in their future. malawi kalama dean 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 were amusing to see that the afghans want to live in the shari'a law again our holy war wasn't in vain approve of guns want to shari'a law
11:03 am
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 kalimba doing 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 be the one of god's commandments for men as covering up for women. who want sharia law must accept these rules. afghanistan is a conservative islamic society but the country has changed in recent years more
11:04 am
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 to fatality it's not just the internet we would lose all of our freedoms with the taliban present themselves as more moderate than before but now we calum 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 this is the individual vital 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. the compromises are inevitable to end the war with the taliban these are likely to come
11:05 am
at a high price let's bring in journalist latif if he is standing by in couple right now ali as we heard there are fears that the taliban could soon return to power and afghanistan and let's not forget this is a movement that's known for its incredibly harsh rule fundamentalist stances on education and its repression of women as well how do afghans feel about these talks . there's a lot of trepidation about these talks because the truth is that there is no up on representation there the i was on my colleagues are representing the united states any of the taliban but there's no one there from from the government there's no on there from civil society there's no women there's no minorities there's no you there's no journalists and you know like right now i'm sitting in a very hip cafe in kabul where young people you know it's the young who can afford like a seven dollars above but still young people men and women can common hang out and have coffee and you know. just enjoy a pastime and have this sort of
11:06 am
a culture of. the risk is that if the taleban go back to their ways from one thousand nine hundred six to two thousand and one that sort of a system something like this could be lots you know you know this sort of camaraderie and a sort of a freedom and this sort of a social life you know could be at risk for a lot of people the right real concerns there among afghans. speaking to us from kabul thank you so much for your insight thank you. well the transformation of afghan society over the last two decades that is the subject of the film we the women of afghanistan by afghan filmmaker now he who lives here in germany her film tells her own story of fleeing afghanistan as a child it also portrays some of the women who are changing afghan society today. i'm going to tell you the story of a little girl who seekers one day. absolutely nothing to do with her family nor
11:07 am
with any afghans living in peace and acceptance of cultures and religions. was the beginning of a series of wars which have devastated the country and its people for years. and forced that group and her family to walk out of there is thirty seven. dangerous and sort. of chemist. and i am. free all in the. human rights i did not have. who made that film is with us now in our studio thank you so much for joining us now he'd that looks like such a compelling story it's a story of afghanistan but also very much your story about the violence that caused your mom to flee with you and your siblings how do you think that violence can be stopped because it has continued. well today it's at the sensitive moment in
11:08 am
history of afghanistan i think that were sitting at a time where crucial decisions are being made for the f afghans and the fate of afghanistan and its people are basically in the hands of you know many people women's rights and what we have achieved in the last seventeen years is something that has to be safeguarded and women's rights is only one pillar of the human rights the basic human rights that we need to fight for ethnic rights religious rights in every. that is happening in afghanistan in the last seventeen years instead of getting better it's getting worse i mean we have progress but yet politically and security wise it's extremely difficult to be moving as a woman saying peace and security can't come really at the sake of the democratic progress that's been made for women what do you think of these talks that we're seeing taking place right now in qatar washington and launched direct talks as we said with the taliban is this possibly a way out of the violence the one thing that i can say for sure that everybody
11:09 am
agrees upon is that we want peace however. are we going to go for this peace at the cost of such basic rights and we're talking about we're talking about democracy in general so that is what is at stake now the talks these are not supposed to be peace talks these are supposed to be just talks behind these closed doors the afghan government is not in there the afghan people are not there but when the time comes for the real negotiations of peace i am hoping that there will be it will be an all inclusive composition of this committee or whoever that is negotiating it so that all parts of the afghan society will be included in that and that is the most important thing so that representation of women minorities groups those that have lost lives you know there are so many that this country is very very diverse and all of those these the society for example all of these people have to be included
11:10 am
in these negotiations set of how peace should be negotiated what you're saying because i'm i'm just saying that just because we're going to end war because this is what we all want that doesn't mean that peace is going to come i mean look at what happened after the russians peace did not come so ending a war does not mean that it will equal or translate into peace in afghanistan there's lots of other factors that you have to take into consideration and one of the most important factors is that we really fight to safeguard these democratic ways that whether it's in the constitution for exam. will. the mechanisms have to be in place in the right place what about if the u.s. does withdraw what are your fears then if the taliban does in that case come back to power will all of that progress be erased. at this point i think that it's all speculation because we don't have a lot of information what's happening right now we're being told in like little wins here and there but nothing concrete has been told by either way and the only thing that we know is that. the taliban want to go back to the sharia law and
11:11 am
according to everything that is in the holy koran i mean that is a muslim extreme state nevertheless the democratic ways have been embraced by the whole of afghanistan and they don't want to go back to what what they were eighteen years ago where the suppression of women and the rights of the minorities were really suppressed we're hoping that once the negotiations start at that point when you include everybody in that in those negotiation. table things could change very important message there from now he'd lean in your film we the women of afghanistan thank you so much for joining us in our studio and sharing your insights thank you so much. right now to some other stories making headlines around the world former nissan boss carlos ghosn has been released from after putting up a bail of nearly nine million dollars goannas charged in japan with underreporting salary for years and passing on personal losses to nissan the tycoon was detained

11:13 am
government has begun penalizing citizens who engage in anti-social behavior some twenty three million people have been blocked from buying plane or train tickets for offenses such as not paying taxes or walking a dog without a leash the reports shine a light on how china is using personal data not only to boost prosperity but also to tighten control. china a fascination with the 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 smart for. china's population is a gigantic bubbling source of data that's very simple 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 to create
11:14 am
a better wallet to 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 amount of information data to the culturally for them to learn this flood of data is giving china's authoritarian government more control over the people
11:15 am
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. we're compiling a special 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. now maher is battling a deepening drug crisis this week police seize more than ten million meth pills with a street value almost twelve million euros it's yet another massive haul in

11:19 am
the u.s. has warned the north it faces fresh sanctions if fails to take steps to denuclearize . reuters correspondent josh smith is following this story in seoul hi josh so u.s. and south korea analysts they've been looking at this satellite imagery what do they claim that it actually shows. so they say that in the images they began to see activity just week or ten days before trump met with kim jong un last week they started to see not only halting and some of the dismantlement dead north korea had started last week or last year but actually a reconstruction of some of the facilities and this satellite site that being said analysts we spoke to also emphasized but they did not see which was any evidence that some kind of missile test is imminent still josh it would appear that
11:20 am
pyongyang is then not keeping its word and promising to dismantle the site this did certainly raise a lot of eyebrows in washington and around the world because there have been very few concrete agreements between north korea and the united states but this area was one that north korea had at least virtually told trump they would shut down and dismantle and that now appears to be being reversed so after the failed summit do you see this as another setback for negotiations on day nuclear rising the korean peninsula u.s. secretary of state might come said on monday that he's hoping to send another team of u.s. diplomats to pyongyang soon to try to restart talks with this context of this new development of the missile site it does mean that those diplomats may face greater hurdles than they would have otherwise so talks will continue between washington and pyongyang but what about north korea's neighbors like south korea and japan who
11:21 am
are directly threatened by the north's missile program what do they think of these efforts to negotiate. south korea's president mugabe and his been one of the biggest supporters of engagement with north korea he was dealt something of a body blow by the failure of the trump to summit and this latest news on the rocket side there will certainly cause him more problems as he tries to reach out japan has also continued to raise concerns about north korea's continued weapons development and so this is certainly not good news for them either all right words correspondent josh smith in seoul thanks for bringing us up to date if you now to sports and the best football club in europe for three years running as the knocked out of the champions league round madrid is out thanks to a surprise loss at home i x. from amsterdam dominated the second leg in madrid to overcome
11:22 am
a deficit and win five three on aggregate meanwhile tottenham's harry kane a shined as his english club rushed aside one of the leaders dortmund to advance to the quarterfinals. all right let's talk about all of that champions the action with art so easy from sports art what happened to real madrid here well they have been struggling for a while at home in their own league in the spanish league they're already twelve points behind elite leaders barcelona they were knocked out of the spanish cup the copa del rey and the i don't think they ever got over the loss of christiana rinaldo who went over to your ventus and in this first leg of the of the series against. them even though the spaniards won two to one in amsterdam i actually looked like the better team and so then in the second leg the dutch decided to take the game to the spaniards and that paid off i mean goals were scored already very early in the first half and goal scorers were. and daveed net as
11:23 am
they got fantastic passes by a midfield a survey midfield general called on todd each and he had the game of his life he had struggled for four years in the premier league at southampton but here it was the game of his life he said and then the spanish pulled one back but then the dutch gave them the death knell later on in the game four two one win for i.x. of amsterdam and and rail madrid are out so was this a case of rail being too weak or were i axed just that much better well both i mean i think the real madrid players at least four or five top players they know that no christian are and although it's they're not going to have the same kind of success and also the dutch decided to play what they originally did back in the one thousand seven hundred total football where everybody attacks and everybody defends they did that perfectly yesterday but i must say real madrid were gracious in defeat and in fact their german midfielder twenty crows had this to say about the
11:24 am
match. it's disappointing to the of course we used to grow in this competition. but today we have to be on this to the beaches of two roads was was a bit dim in both games. at the end for real madrid there let's talk about the other match last night dortmund hoping for a miracle against tottenham they didn't get it that's right dortmund were trailing three nil tottenham hotspur had beat them at home three nil and so they would have had to put out all the stops and they did a tour out of page from the dems playbook attack and they could have scored in the first half but they had their top player marco royce they were denied eleven times in the first half and in the end in the early in the second half then spurs top player came on and harry came he scored the lone goal of the game to make it a four neil aggregate win for tottenham hotspur and they move on dortmund are out
11:25 am
they tried everything but it just didn't work too bad for door and more action tonight could be be in for more surprises well there's a very interesting game presented your man or p.s.g. is hosting manchester united the preachings one in manchester to nail so they've got a comfortable lead but their german coach thomas to coach said take nothing for granted here now man you are licking their wounds they're down ten starters they've even brought five teenagers from their soccer academy to try to make up for things but you know they are coached by all a good. hope i pronounced that right he is a norwegian international he used to play for man u. and in one thousand nine hundred nine out anybody can pull this out of a hat he can't he got off the bench and won the champions league furman he was a player scoring in the dying seconds of injury time so anything's possible could be another exciting night in the champions league the from date of use for thank you very much. to italy now for hundreds of thousands flocked to the tuscan coast for the last day of the carnival
