As anti-G20 protests begin, Merkel says growth must be inclusive

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is expected to arrive in the German city on Thursday for a bilateral meeting with host leader Angela Merkel, who not only faces national polls in September but is also resisting US President Donald Trump's "America First" attitude to key issues.

Xi made the remarks in a signed article titled "To Make the World a Better Place" and published Tuesday on mainstream German media ahead of his trip to the European country, where he will also attend the upcoming summit of the Group of 20 major economies.

President Trump will also meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel - who has been critical of the president's decision to withdraw the US from the Paris Climate Agreement - and Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who Trump met during the 2016 campaign but has not seen since winning the presidency.

Hamburg is a citadel of leftwing radicals, and the authorities say they are bracing for possible clashes and property damage.

Trump tweets fake video of him attacking CNN logo
While the origin of the edited version of the WWE clip was unclear, it was posted on a pro-Trump Reddit thread four days ago. The video's creator placed a CNN graphic over the face of McMahon, conveying the message of the president attacking CNN .

A police spokesman quoted by the AFP news agency put the turnout at the protest at around 10,000, while the organisers said the figure was far higher.

Donald Trump is not planning a surprise visit to the United Kingdom, his spokesman has said, ending speculation that the president would drop in at a Scottish golf course, writes London Evening Standar.

In addition to the no-protest zone, tightly secured transit corridors were set up to ensure that convoys will be able to keep moving so they don't become targets for violent demonstrators or extremist attacks.

Dirk Messner, director of the Centre for Advanced Studies on Global Cooperation Research said "our country-first ideologies" pursued by some countries are unsafe since we live in the times of global interdependency.

Alexandre Lacazette: Arsenal in negotiations to sign French striker from Lyon
Aulas, who is looking for a transfer fee of £57m for Lacazette, suggests that the La Liga club could revisit the deal in January. Lyon finished fourth in Ligue 1 last season and star striker Alexandre Lacazette has been strongly linked with an exit.

About twenty thousand law enforcement officers will be in Hamburg during the event, including police from other federal states of Germany.

Ms Merkel will enlist Chinese assistance to "promote global economic governance", particularly on climate change and free trade-two areas that will take centre-stage at the G20.

Sunday's demonstration was organised by a group called " Protest Wave G20".

Greenpeace, for example, regards the G-20 as a chance for the leaders to send a strong signal about fighting climate change - despite the Trump administration's decision to pull out of the Paris agreement on reducing emissions.
