made it to the quarter finals of the euros two years ago could they match up to high flying argentina. by my us waiter thanks for joining us people have been flooding on to the streets of afghan cities to celebrate a day after the taliban announced a surprise three day cease fire it was a rare sight as taliban fighters hugged and even took selfies with the soldiers and civilians they have been fighting afghan president said he would extend a parallel cease fire that his government announced on tuesday but did not say when it would start and how long it would be in place. joining us now is ali let t.v. a journalist in kabul who have been following the story so ali after years of fighting against each other we suddenly see afghan soldiers and taliban fighters hugging a very rare scene is this a little too good to be true what's behind this cease fire. that's exactly the
question people are asking each other and i think we're all keeping very hopefully optimistic trying not to you know sort of question it too much and hoping that things continue in this way but it's actually a question people are asking themselves that's what's behind the cease fire getting there's a few things one thing is that repeatedly the government has that. international community has said and i think the taliban is starting to realize that there is no military solution to this war we've seen that the taliban for instance today there were photos of taliban commanders meeting with a provincial governor from the western province of point to take over large swaths of land the way they had wanted to or in the way that would lead them to be able to take over the country entirely as they did in one thousand nine hundred six so i think it's really becoming evident to people that there has to be. a sort of a negotiated solution to this war because at this point no two militarily neither side is entirely winning so as you mentioned
a negotiated solution might finally be in sight what's next after these cease fires is it maybe too soon to start talking about peace talks or is it now a real possibility. well so in the immediate future the next thing is to see what the taliban says to the president's willingness to extend his cease fire right because right now it's still back to being in till the end of tomorrow is a two a cease fire but after tomorrow unless the taliban makes an announcement that they're going to extend their cease fire as well you know go back to being a unilateral cease fire so i think we have to you're one step at a time so right now the next step is to see the taliban's reaction to what they think of this cease fire how they were welcomed in every province of this. you know i actually said they're taking pictures they're taking selfies right here in kabul only a few kilometers from the presidential palace so it's a major issue and we have to see how you know because the government has embraced this now we have seen the taliban is willing to embrace that as well now the
somewhat celebrate for a mood here was overshadowed by a suicide bombing that targeted the celebrations an islamic state so-called i asked has claimed responsibility are they now the biggest threat in afghanistan. so this is this is two parts of the same issue great is that right now taleban and the government during this time of cease fire even before had a common enemy in this so-called islamic state forces because the truth is that you know taliban don't get along with these forces and if you speak to people who are in areas that have come under i ask control so they left and come to other places the thing they say is the first thing that these quick of course is going to be die is the first thing that they do is they say you know we have to get rid of the taliban and once they get rid of the taliban and the turn against the people so there is definitely a real and miti between the taleban and irish and i think this could also be what leading them to the cease fire and possible negotiations seeing that they're no
longer alone and they have a real viable threat that's not only attacking them and trying to take over that their sorts of gains well also trying to attack the government. journalist in kabul thank you so much for your insights. and now to a migrant rescue ship that's become a flashpoint in the european debate over migration the aquarius is said to be carrying more than six hundred people is due to dock in spain in the coming hours after being denied permission by italy and the spanish and french authorities have announced they will work together to process the people on board that as our next report shows it's just the latest step in a long ordeal. on board the aquarius hundreds of weary migrants await the end of an arduous journey. the mood is celebre tree they've been saved twice first from the sea and then from scorn.

i mean it but the countries of the european union should agree. because this is not just up to a single player but the whole team. it's necessary to provide a solution in the countries of origin. so they can develop that agriculture industry and services so that these people can find solutions in their own countries. and. places for the passengers of the aquarius to politics a far away but compassion is on the horizon. too controversial german rappers have been cleared of charges of anti-semitism after state investigators deemed their lyrics to be quote politically incorrect but not criminal rappers call it a party to buying ignited controversy after they won germany's echo music prize for an album that critics said trivialize the holocaust the german constitution bans

a crowd of people had fallen asleep eight people were injured including many who had come to the city for the world cup police have opened an investigation. in the final world cup game on saturday croatia battled nigeria to a two nothing victory in a rough and tumble encounter in the thirty second minute mario monument court with a diving header in might have been deflected by oak and i caught our eye table but this one probably would have gone on even without nigeria that i carry and how then in the sixty ninth minute my pubic was wrestled down in a box by william close economy upset captain newcome ultra who fired in to make it to now croatia now moves to talk of group dean. get more on the match and with me is chris harrington from t w sport so this game go the way you expected. expect it yes the way i hope you know i was hoping the
super eagles would prevail they have a lot of hype behind their team you know they were the first african club to qualify for the world cup but croatia on the other hand very experienced team they have luka mosher it's the captive mario minds who can also the two players in their mid thirty's so it was really a battle of experience versus the experience of nigeria because they are one of the youngest teams in this world cup but it was a lot of sloppy play in the beginning and a lot of fouls i mean i counted more than thirty fouls you know the first goal we saw in the louth lots there in the in the video there it was controversial but it wasn't the best looking goal we're taking a look at it here now a good. if you look at the slow motion you see the header go in then but you know. maybe that's changing the roebuck it was considered an own goal but it was just ugly manufacturing of goals if you want to call it that in the physicality you know shows because the second go crazy converted was due to a penalty you know nigeria had
a tough time getting the ball in the final third they had it's up time cracking the croatian defense you know that's one thing and then you know when you look at the way the dust settled i mean iceland argentina they draw it out croatia are. the head of their group they are considered a dark horse in this tournament and you know getting the three points is a lot of steam and a lot of air and wind behind that sails so we'll see what happens of course it will be over the course saturday also saw world cup first timers iceland take on the mighty argentina in group d. the south americans are known for their polished technique and came into this clash is the clear favorites but iceland with their scrappy physical style can never be rolled out. argentina broke the deadlock early on sergio aguero scoring the opening and then ninety minutes by but iceland came back just four minutes later with the first ever world cup go out for him bogus in this school run by. in the second tina put the pressure on forcing iceland into mistakes and penalty
for the favorites surely this would be the lead upset leo messi see behind us how the sun and the fans they say visits like kuwait. as the minutes counted down messi tried as luck again but it was soon though a veiled one zero of the final score as iceland was quite the upset us. this was supposed to be an easy match for argentina right i mean the idea that we call that enough set in argentina didn't win this at all right you know iceland really showed their teamwork and the iceman alfre from books and who plays domestically right here in germany he came through scoring the first goal for iceland you know they had a heroic performance from honduras doth son dawson to one of the future that said his middle name is stored he had one horowitz performance you know stopping leo messi leo messi had an opportunity to convert a penalty very unnecessary like for him to miss that he had eleven shots on goal
and it's very bad to see you know him in argentina not succeed but teamwork sometimes prevails and tonight we saw earlier today we saw ice they walk away with the point level right now with argentina who is the favorite of the group and since you mentioned messi in his performance it was a little bit of a messy performance i had to flee messi is how the perfect way you know you know he have the nail on the head with that comment here because you expect more especially off of christian honor and all those performers we saw the hattrick everyone's talking about this and everyone tends to compare the two clearly leo messi heard about this before you know he laced up his boots to play you know it's. unfortunate to see the way it turned out but messi sometimes does too much on the pitch i think he has a lot of quality around him and sometimes he might have to look for that quality opposed to some of his teammates as watching him try to pull off some heroic feat at the end of the day but eleven shots on goal nothing to show for a very messy live performance but as i said i slid right now argentina title points
croatia has the lead in group d. nigeria is the one team that's going to have to shock if they want to live to get out of the group stage but all in all a great day all right well let's take a look at the results from match a three and there is confirmation of that win for croatia and that unexpected draw between argentina and iceland elsewhere denmark got the better of peru and france sealed a surprisingly narrow win against australia thanks to a late goal to one the final score that's your world cup brad chris harrington from the sports thank you so much thank you. and finally for some people there's nothing like a vintage automobile to stir the soul and for others it's tractors and through z s in the polish town of milan though hosted the international rally of old tractors on saturday the show started dozens of models dating back to the one nine hundred forty s. outfitted with a range of extra options including side cars and exposed hot rod engines with the
