8:02 pm
the taliban says it suicide bomber was targeting special forces soldiers but as with previous attacks most of those killed and injured were civilians young a suddenly a man on the motorbike arrived in a huge explosion happened a lot of people heard a martini and looted the attack will be a major concern for all the presidential candidates as they campaign across afghanistan in the coming days even more worrying for the author here in kabul was the 2nd attack happening in what should be one of the most secure areas of the capital the taliban bomber managed to evade tight security surrounding the diplomatic area of the capital detonating explosives at an office of the ministry of defense then. i heard an explosion and then dust started rising from the side of the attack and there was gunfire i scaped body parts were spread everywhere
8:03 pm
it was confirmed the gunfire was actually warning shots from security forces trying to clear the area because they feared a secondary attack. as the countdown to election day continues the why defeat here for the afghan government is keeping the security situation stable enough to allow voting to begin rob mcbride al-jazeera kabul. israelis are voting in their 2nd general election in less than 6 months prime minister benjamin netanyahu is hoping for a 5th term after he failed to achieve a majority also form a coalition back in april and so called this unprecedented rerun has been smith reporting from occupied east jerusalem. he's promised to annex the jordan valley in the occupied west bank and he's warned he may be replaced by leftists who week in
8:04 pm
israel benjamin netanyahu is facing corruption allegations and doing everything he can to win this election and try to avoid a criminal trial. the election is close i can confirm to you this morning they are very close i call them all israelis to come and vote just like me and my wife came to vote they want only for home good luck and thank you the prime minister's main rival is benny gantz his blue and white party took 35 seats in april's election the same as netanyahu could neither was able to build a coalition that would give them 61 seats and a majority in parliament. which leaves other door leaving as potential kingmaker one time friend of netanyahu loyalist lieberman refused to enter government with the prime minister saying too many concessions have been made to ultra-orthodox parties so netanyahu dissolved parliament you should think carefully how you will cast your vote for whoever wants to see a liberal secular unity government without the ultra orthodox should stop and think
8:05 pm
for a 2nd so far early voter turnout has been the highest in more than 30 years but pre-election polls still predict this vote will be as close run as the last time to chose the country is split in so many different ways that it's very sad this election is for about change change that policy. it's about change. 30 years of that i go. i hope that what a void for is going to be there but. i think it will be divided again yeah because it's really close this is the 1st time in israel's history that a 2nd election has been held because the largest party was unable to form a coalition the polls close at 10 pm local time and exit poll soon after should give an early indication of the way the voting has gone and then there could be weeks or even months of political horse trading before we know who will be the next
8:06 pm
prime minister of israel bernard smith al-jazeera in occupied east jerusalem just a few hours till the polls close and we've got correspondents in 2 locations in tel aviv what our bill hamid is at the headquarters of benny gantz blue and white party we're starting out with kerry force that benjamin netanyahu likud party base this is a big one isn't it harry after failing to get either a majority or to form a coalition and then taking the risk of another election. that's right and then the magic number for benjamin netanyahu is 61 seats in the knesset the israeli parliament not for his own likud party alone he got 35 seats last time around but for enough of a coalition of his likud party and other smaller right wing parties if he makes that then he will have another term he will be able to try to get through potentially immunity against his corruption charges all of the various pledges that
8:07 pm
he's been making in the election campaign then become all that more real and from palestinian perspective for instance the the pledge to annex the jordan valley and parts of your key by the city of hebron all the more dangerous i've got notifications on my phone every time he goes live with a new live broadcast and it's pinging all the time every few minutes a few minutes ago he was talking about his achievements about how they were closing the gap and that more of his right wing base had to come out and vote just in the last couple of minutes he said 2 hours to go the arabs are coming out in much higher numbers than before and not as well as all of the messaging about how he's on the verge of losing which is something that he does in every campaign trying to motivate panic really his right wing base he's also been making it very clear that this is a tactic to talk about the palestinian israeli vote about the threat as he puts it of a left wing and arab government he says that the turnout is is higher in those areas
8:08 pm
he was at a bus station in jerusalem with a loud hailer earlier on talking about the threat that that posed he's also broken election or a couple of times today by giving radio interviews that he's not supposed to give on the polling day and his own chat bot on his facebook site was closed down by facebook for publishing polls on polling day so he's trying to pull out every single stop he can think of interesting stuff harry thank you for that made at the headquarters of. benny gantz the hunter it's not often that you lose an election and then get another shot at it less than 6 months later how the war has the expectation in the blue and what camp. and i think the expectation is that you will find yourself in exactly the same situation but the message coming out of benny gantz. or one of the co-chairs actually of the blue and
8:09 pm
white party and the a left feet is that listen when you need to come out and vote for us you know they've been actually trying also to attract some likud voters who . think that big to benjamin netanyahu has been there for too long who think that those corruption charges are way too heavy for him to continue being a prime minister they've also been going around reaching out to people calling on them to vote for example on the beaches of tel aviv and benny gantz on the streets talking to people now their message is look last time he got a shot at it and what he did when he couldn't form a government is that he dissolved the knesset now benny gantz is sure trying to put new 10 yo on the spot and also president rivlin by say you can't allow that to happen replay age if we're given a shot at forming the government and that obviously will depend on the number they will get later on today we will not dissolve the. knesset if we don't manage to
8:10 pm
form that government we'll just leave this spot for someone else to do it they've also been hammering about these corruption charges about the fact that if benjamin netanyahu does indeed win then he will make all these charges go away he will manny legislation and finally they also been saying that benjamin netanyahu coming back to. government forming it could listen with these far right parties is actually. the effort to the democracy of israel to the essence of israel and that is something that they have been really hammering about as their base said to try to attract other voters telling them that really what's at stake here is the essence of israel itself. what a bill has made in tel aviv thank you for that. supreme

court challenge to boris johnson's controversial decision to suspend parliament until mid october is now underway in london the court will decide whether the british prime minister broke the law when he sent members of parliament home for 5 weeks until october 14th trying to hold reports now from london. the barricades have shifted temporarily to the remaining breaks it battlers a rived at the supreme court we have the force to appeals one from england and wales and one from scotland. they both involve the same issue. whether it was lawful for the prime minister to advise her majesty to authorize the probation department order in council at issue whether the court should stay out of politics as the english high court had ruled or a scottish judges decided last week whether the courts should step in when the powers of government are used for purposes other than those for which they were
8:12 pm
intended. when the prime minister signs. he's admittedly removed discretionary power to advise her majesty geishas it is an improper purpose for him to be moved. and wish to avoid armament you control over the policies of he's gone and we know. that the parliament may be proved for a variety of reasons lesson for all as much as formal. and sas in the. greek parliament is not in any sense innocent until the peffer nation when you mean the supreme court's decision when it comes could have far reaching consequences for an unwritten constitution in this country
8:13 pm
that relies heavily on legal precedent for a government that may yet decide it wants to prorogue parliament again and for parliament itself there are many many m.p.'s very keen to get back to work as the clock ticks down towards a breakthrough day on october the 31st and if the supreme court were to confirm the scottish judges finding that boris johnson lie to the queen over his reasons for suspending parliament they'd be heavy pressure on the prime minister to resign fundamentally this case is really quite simple it's about this proposition the government admits that parliament doesn't get control whether it's suspend it. and government says courts can't control it either and that is just writing proposition an absolutely striking proposition and the supreme court's going to have found difficulty accepting it a year and a sawed off for us that's not a popular view among sections of the crowd outside the court as ever breaks it
8:14 pm
