one side of a conflict which touched people across the globe it was the first time submarines were used in quantity giving the world the terms u. boat and unrestricted submarine warfare a concept which would sink nearly five thousand ships and kill more than fifteen thousand sailors commemorating its war there is something that democratic germany does in a song but more than two million people died fighting for imperial germany in the first world war and the aftereffects of that conflict helped shape the form germany would take over the course of the twentieth century. but many people believe it was germany's role in world war two which defines the way it remembers its fall and that the evil of national socialism was so all encompassing that few people consider the casualties of the first war now some historians say such a view overlooks the fact that defeat in november one thousand nine hundred
eighteen was when human rights movements took hold in germany. have not made things of that moment and have not really a claim that are thought as maybe a positive moment a new start for the republican for democracy in germany. in modern times it's not in berlin political leaders commemorate the dead of world war one but in the capitals of the countries that fought and eventually defeated the german empire so will it be on this and dominant cain era munich. well thousands of ships were sunk during the second world war there wrecks litter the ocean floors decades of corrosion tidal movements and storms of course some other ships to break up on leak oil well a couple from australia has launched a grand plan to stop an ecological disaster under thomas reports newcastle to rob the films of the nonstop offensive in the pacific the pacific ocean saw some of the
basis naval battle to the second world war more than three thousand ships were sunk three hundred of them all time it's now decades on the water some are starting to break up leaking oil into the sea as recreational pull the wilma adams swam to wrecks in micronesia where in one thousand nine hundred forty four u.s. fighter planes sank sixty five japanese ships. there the couple saw the early signs of pollution for themselves. like it's coming out of the tanks potential of the problem was pretty clear if you look at other incidents in the past and you know what i can do to the environment and it really hits you the couple has decided to act the ships are there and they stand a leak someone somewhere has to start taking responsibility for. no one can take
responsibility for it also until we actually find out the extent of the problem the information that's out there at the moment is so miniscule that research urgently needs to happen before they start actually. the couple is so serious that they've paid new zealand's government hundreds of thousands of dollars but this second time support ship having sailed it back to australia they next plan to convert it into a vessel that can sit over the wrecks of others sending divers down to investigate how damaged they are and experiment with ways to reserve them this ship is forty years. but it could almost have been purpose built for this task it already has what's known as a diving bell essentially a platform that can take equipment divers on the ad that they need to the bottom of the say and if any of those divers gets into trouble well the ship already has a decompression china on board that could save divers life the ship also has cranes
and four anchors when she led the mt is a kilometer age direction. and i mean a ship very stable exactly how to directly over the wreck where we want to work divers would inspect shipwrecks to work out the likelihood of them cracking up they could also experiments with preservation techniques passing a week electrical current through submerged metal can help stop corrosion in the longer it's the genetically modified microbes can be developed to eat oil pull atoms thinks he needs to raise two million dollars a year to cover the initial cost of investigating the ship wrecks ultimately dealing with each would take millions more but that would be cheap compared with cleanup operations to big oil spills from ships sunk seventy five years ago. andrew thomas al-jazeera newcastle australia. time for another short break and come

think that it is our last day i was proud. the real struggle for a victory was happening outside these games as tens of thousands of people watched their heroes take to the pitch police blocked a few hundred women from entering the stadium government officials have said football games are unsafe and indecent and that women run the risk of being harassed by male fans strict rules have been relaxed in the past but this time only three hundred seats were reserved for iranian women in a stadium with the seating capacity of more than seventy eight thousand. but this is not the first time that we've come here to try and what. we've been arrested we've dressed up like boys put on fake beards but we still can't get in. it's always said that football is a man's sport and there's always some discrimination between men and women why why should football be just for men why can't women watch football to. you have been
a football fan since i was a child there's no clear reason for a higher reason there's no reason i just love it club football is an expensive endeavor and experts say one of iran's biggest problems is teams aren't making enough money from televising matches selling merchandise or advertising they say opening the game up to female fans just makes good financial sense. there is also a vigorous public debate about how to alter football culture in iran to make it more family friendly and while there are signs of change for now the government's preventative measures continue to boil down to one thing punishing women for the sins of men. the first leg of south america's cup of liberty there was final has been delayed for twenty four hours due to heavy rain the game between argentinian rivals baka juniors and river plate is now set to take place on sunday

happened to the saudi journalist but also they said they were concerned that the repercussions from the murder could further destabilize the region i think they were basically concerned that the fallout from this particular case could destabilize the royal family in the kingdom no turkey is concerned that this saudi or the u.s. and the e.u. could be using their leverage in a way or another to shield the royal family in saudi arabia because the e.u. and the u.s. have look what has and business deals with the oil rich kingdom but for. their needs to be a tougher international stance against saudi arabia. it's the first time turkey has officially acknowledged the existence of recordings related to the murder of journalist. at the saudi consulate in istanbul last month and the timing could not have been more telling just before stepping on a flight to paris president. with field has shared the recordings with the u.s.
saudi arabia friends germany and the u.k. it was a move designed to put further pressure on the international community and the u.s. in particular to take concrete action against syria and these we have given the recordings to saudi arabia the americans the british the germans to everyone they've listened to the conversations on those recordings they know what's being said there's no point in distorting this fact amongst the fifteen they know who the murderer is or the murderers are and the saudi arabian administration can succeed in bringing this to light by making the fifteen speak. the turkish president did not say exactly what was the recordings but accuse the saudis of stalling the investigation and called on the kingdom to identify these killers. who has an ounce meant we not have gone unnoticed. as leaders gather to commemorate the
hundredth anniversary of the end of the first world war u.s. president donald trump and french president even well mccrone have their own agenda to deal with trying to overcome differences about european defense spending but the journalist death was not even more they agreed some of the arabia must provide more details about his murder. a former saudi spy chief says the kingdom would never agree to an international investigation. the kingdom is proud of its legal system. it will never accept. foreign interference in this as other countries have refused to allow. international tribunals to base your gate horrific acts that have happened either on their soil or elsewhere committed by their citizens saudi system is. running
