oman is reminiscent of a similar episode last month in which 4 ships were damaged in an alleged sabotage attack off the emirates. a middle east analyst daniel gallacher came into d.w. to give us his assessment i think it is a very serious incident these kinds of operations and obviously it's not an accident these kinds of operations are either conducted by whatever special forces of state actors or terrorist organizations nobody has claimed this attack of course but it is possible that terrorists or criminal organizations might want to benefit from what looks like of course the rain and. the special forces operation maritime operation i have absolutely no evidence and no reason to speculate that that's what it is but there are many players in the region that could benefit from such an escalation from iran. standing accused and
5:04 pm
a possible act of retribution there is one point that i want to highlight the japanese prime minister was in tehran to. suggest that he would negotiate mediate between the united states and iran and according to our information both ships were on their way to japan so that is a very peculiar coincidence i don't know if somebody is trying to send a political message here or if it's just coincidence but what is also important to mention is that this attack was designed in a way that apparently it would not blow up both ships that would not cause a large amount of fatalities so i don't know if that is coincidence or if it's also again a message to say we don't blow up the ships but we harm it the least honest attack . now a measure of calm has reserved hong kong in the wake of a series of large protests against a planned new law allowing suspects to be extradited to china or forces have been clearing the way barricades are following

5:19 pm
serbia thousands of people were killed in the fighting now the humanitarian law center costs of in the capital prishtina is remembering the war's youngest victims with a special exhibition called once upon a time and never again. these children knew nothing of weapons exodus or destruction how people harm each other. but then war ended their world a war that brutally ended the lives of many people. and exhibits and christina remembers the children who were killed in the course of a war 20 years ago. to this day those 9 monuments or specials dates to on of these lost children we think it's very important that all those who lost their lives or disappeared back and will not be forgotten and that's why we chose this way to remember them as locals will know
5:20 pm
. more than $1000.00 children were killed during the war and this exhibition every one of the young victims is named. also on display a personal keepsakes that parents held onto mementos associated with grief and pain . many mothers and fathers welcome the idea that the public can now take part in understanding this tragedy. said that it was of their not i could have the need to share this story and they want for what happened to be showing you know that you were there that it doesn't say this country's institutions have so far done nothing in the sense of the decision is that of yet must needs to me i think that after 20 is we as a society need to process what this country went through when you said that it never happens again you would you can you got the city the. conflicts in kosovo began in 1998 the war lasted a year and
5:21 pm
a half hundreds of communities were devastated. the past impacts people's lives to this day including this visit is back then his mother fled with him to germany that's why he finds the sad fate of those who stayed behind in kosovo particularly moving because of it is definitely a good idea to have an exhibition like this so that what we went through during the war can be seen and how the poor innocent children died that's definitely moving. it's important for it to be shown and that you can also see how lucky you actually are to be alive today. 20 years after the wars and many people in kosovo still live with. some that may never heal . the exhibit in pristina is not attempt to deal with the pain and an urgent call for peace. sort of
5:22 pm
the women's that world cup in france which saw some heavyweight tech games on wednesday to. take us through the pick of the actual welcome germany beat spain in sight of the knockout stages but it wasn't all smooth sailing no it wasn't i mean germany and now of course have 6 points from a possible 6 of the 1st 2 games but as we saw with their initial fixture against china this was really no i think from a german perspective they're really hoping to grow into the tournament and kind of progress as things go on because otherwise it looks like they might have some difficulties still after this result they are qualified that's of course what counts and here's how it happened germany without injured star midfielder jennifer were under pressure again spain who created more chances early on but shortly before the break germany applied their own pressure off the cross alexander potts header popped out and saw at daybreak it was there to pick up the pieces giving
5:23 pm
germany a one goal lead after the restart germany kept up the momentum pop again what they had. but this time the keeper kept hold. despite spain having the lion's share of the ball they couldn't crack the germany defense a late appeal for a pivotal t.v. was turned down. we are really happy to have picked up this very important 3 point it took a lot of energy and we had a lot of luck in the opening few minutes with the way in germany now topped the group with 6 points and are all but through. that's now 18 group stage games of world cup tournament undefeated for germany so i think you'd have to back them to go into that final game on monday against south africa and get results and of course that will be wanting to win the group to go in scenes of the best chance in the knockout stage one of occasions the fixture that let's take a look at some other games let's start with the hosts france yes of course well
5:24 pm
they played in nice in front of a pretty much sellout crowd of $35000.00 which is of course fantastic support from the french fans now it was quite difficult for them initially the goal from when you were not part of the thing one from the hero of the 1st game and levelled the schools off to france and going in front and then this penalty. up in the 72nd minute by using needle is so met came to rescue that result for them so you know as we saw with germany france not necessarily making it look easy for themselves and certainly wasn't the comfortable victory that they produced in their 1st game against south korea in paris last week but it's the points again that count frantz now have 6 of them and they're top of group a with one game left against nigeria ok so just just to be clear that the final school that was what if there was to be one of what i would say if you would make sure we get that same group we had a clash between nigeria and south korea yeah that's right now in nigeria like i just mentioned france is next opponents they picked up their 1st points of the tournament last night in grenoble there was another volley buffing go in that game
5:25 pm
from kim who when she attempted escape routes managed. wrong for the goalkeeper and nigeria in front towards the end of the 1st half. for nigeria to produce the 2nd go to know the final school just to have that on the table now in that game last night but unfortunately those kind of our own goals we tend to be a bit well memo so we haven't seen our squad is go that nigeria now are still in with a chance of course because they have got one win but for south korea after 2 defeats it's looking like they could be quite close to the end of its women so pick up today's games think of today's games well i think probably the 1st one is a stray against brazil now australia lost their 1st game against italy that was a real shock result and they're taking on brazil so that's 2 real heavyweights of the women's game brazil of course beat jamaica with a fantastic had tricked by christina was a right in their 1st fixture so that's definitely a highlight of the group stage not just of today later on though there is another
5:26 pm
game that's group b. china and south africa now both of those sides lost their 1st games so they really need results now from a german perspective of course interesting in this game is if china managed to avoid defeat so if they will get a draw then germany are guaranteed qualification into the knockout stage so. marina fostex and bugging the germans will of course be crossing their fingers for south africa tonight to television or thank you so much. top stories at this hour 2 oil tankers are reported to it's been attacked in the gulf and also escalation of tensions between the united states and iraq reports say the crews have been rescued. leaving via medical research group the welcome trust has described the a bold outbreak in the democratic republic of congo is truly frightening more than 2000 people have died from the seaside now 2 people have died in neighboring uganda . but get even always get news on the go just download out from google player from
