Trump foreign tour: G7 leaders turn attention to Africa

Leaders of the G7 group of rich nations have begun the last day of their summit with talks on the migrant crisis.

Leaders from Tunisia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Niger and Nigeria have taken part in the discussions in Taormina, Sicily.

Italy chose to host the G7 there to draw attention to Africa and the risks to migrants crossing to Europe.

US President Donald Trump is said to oppose a statement highlighting the benefits of migration. He also opposes language on trade and climate change.

G7 leaders have agreed a statement on fighting terrorism.
Saturday also marks the last day of Mr Trump's first foreign tour.
