U.S. leader Donald Trump reached Hamburg, which is going to host the G20 summit on Friday and Saturday. Prior to the main event, he is going to negotiate with German chancellor Angela Merkel, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and South Korean president Moon Jae-in.
The parties are likely to discuss further actions due to the launch of North Korean intercontinental ballistic missile that occurred on July 4.
On the eve of the G20 summit opening, thousands of protesters took it to the streets of Hamburg demanding changes in the global policy. The local government deployed about 20,000 police to maintain security; during skirmishes with the protesters in and around Hamburg, law enforcers seized knives, batons and baseball bats.
It is expected that several thousand anarchists and members of left radical movements might arrive in Hamburg and resort to violence in order to sabotage the summit.
