International leaders are set to convene for the second day of talks on global trade, climate change and international terrorism at the Group of 20 summits in Hamburg that has been overshadowed by violent riots between anti-globalization activists and police.  The summit’s host, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, said the negotiators, including President Donald Trump, Russian President Vladimir Putin, European and Asian leaders, ”still have a great deal of work ahead of them” to formulate the summit’s closing communique planned for Saturday.

Merkel told leaders Friday they must be prepared to make compromises as she worked toward a summit outcome that everyone present could accept. Other the topics on the agenda include the leading economic countries partnership with Africa, migration and heath.
