Melania Trump Says G-20 Protesters Blocked Her From Leaving Her Hotel

The first lady reportedly hasn't gotten security clearance to leave her hotel because of violent protests

In addition, some individuals allegedly carried out sabotage actions against train tracks and attempted to block access to the convention centre where the summit will be held, reports Efe news.

The German government mobilised at least 19,000 police officers to provide security for the summit and officials have banned anyone but residents and authorized personnel from entering a large section of the northern port city.

Earlier, Macron repeatedly stated that he attaches great importance to climate change.

"There are so many issues involved politically in the G20 summit", said Al Jazeera's David Chater, reporting from Hamburg.

NPR's Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson described the protesters, saying some of them identify as anti-fascist activists and hail from Germany.

Donald Trump, meanwhile, has had an eventful schedule while taking part in diplomatic events on Friday.

Hamburg's streets have been overrun by violence on the first day of the G20 summit in Germany.

In stark contrast to Merkel's head-on approach to Trump's stance, Theresa May reportedly failed to even bring up the subject of climate change in formal talks, despite the Government previously insisting she would.

The pair discussed the claims of Russian interference in last year's American presidential election during their first face-to-face meeting.

Only six people attended the meeting -Trump and his Secretary of State Rex Tillerson; Putin and his Foreign Minister Sergey V Lavrov; and two interpreters.

Regarding trade, the G20 communique said members will keep markets open and "continue to fight protectionism including all unfair trade practices and recognize the role of legitimate trade defense instruments in this regard".

As of 12:20 p.m. (1020 GMT) on Friday, 159 police officers had been injured and 45 protesters detained as a result of the demonstrations, authorities said.
