Sirajuddin Haqqani, Eggen Domar, Ben Thomas discussed on AP 24 Hour News

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

It's an all male interim government taking charge in Afghanistan, and it's stacked with veterans of their hardline rule from the 19 nineties in the 20 year battle against the US led coalition and its Afghan government allies. Among the most notable names Sirajuddin Haqqani as interior minister. He heads to fear to Connie Network that's blamed for many deadly attacks and kidnappings. And he's on the FBI's most wanted list with a $5 million bounty on his head. The Haqqani network is believed to still be holding at least one American hostage. I'm Ben Thomas. The Taliban have announced a caretaker cabinet that pays homage to the group's old guard. Afghanistan's interim prime minister is Mullah Hassan a coon. He headed the Taliban government in Kabul during the last years of its rule, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar or will be one of two deputies. He led talks with the United States and signed the deal that led to America's final withdrawal from Afghanistan. Sir Roger Dean Haqqani has been named interior minister. He's on the FBI's most wanted list with a $5 million bounty on his head. The interim government is all male and drawn mostly from Afghanistan's dominant Pashtu, an ethnic group. The move seems unlikely to win the international support Afghanistan needs to avoid an economic meltdown. I'm Ben Thomas as he toured Ida's damage. In New Jersey. President Biden heard a harrowing tale from one couple that escaped before the storms. Remnants destroyed their home. It's incredible in the Lost Valley neighborhood of Manville, the president stopped in front of what used to be a home. Why should you explain what happened? Eggen Domar said her family left before the storm got really bad to protect their four month old daughter, Lila. Her husband briefly returned a few hours later for Trinity. The cat. Our plan was to come back once the water had gone down and salvage things from the second floor nursery, but before they could the houses on higher after Domar told her story, the president gave her a hug. Thank God you're safe. Thank God the most important thing saw Girma Ghani Washington. This Labor.
