G7 leaders pose for 'family photo' in France

World leaders and special invited guests posed for a 'family photo' along the picturesque Biarritz seaside on Sunday, set against a backdrop of worries over a global economic downturn and disunity on a range of matters.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

It was all smiles for a family photo of with G7 countries comprising the United States, Japan, Germany, France, Italy, Britain and Canada in the French resort city of Biarritz on Sunday.

But the smiles and customary French greeting with a kiss on both cheeks, have been overshadowed by more pressing world issues.

European leaders have been trying to quell a confrontation between Washington and Tehran since the U.S. withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal.

Before leaving Washington, Trump stepped up his trade dispute with China, and at a meeting with UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson Trump said his allies "respect" the tariff war.

The world leaders are also faced with the task of figuring out how to unify and tackle major wildfires burning up swaths of the Amazon rain forest.

French President Emmanuel Macron said on Sunday the leaders of the world's major industrialized nations were close to an agreement on how to help fight the Amazon forest fires and try to repair the devastation.

He said they were finalizing a possible deal on "technical and financial help."

Lindt Opens World's Largest Chocolate Museum (With The World's Largest Chocolate Fountain)

This is the world's largest chocolate museum. Opened in Zurich on 13th September by Swiss chocolatier Lindt, the Willy Wonka-esque factory also features the world’s highest free-standing chocolate fountain. Measuring at just over nine metres high, the chocolate fountain will see 1,000 litres of melted chocolate flow from a ginormous hovering whisk and will descend to cover a giant Lindor ball. It’s also the centerpiece greeting guests at the entrance, setting the tone for the chocolatey experience ahead. The museum offers fans of the brand and chocolate lovers a unique insight into how its iconic sweet treats are made. And unlike at Willy Wonka’s factory, guests are encouraged to take chocolate home.

Johnson looks to defuse Tory rebellion over free school meals

Boris Johnson is reportedly planning to increase funding for the poorestfamilies over Christmas in an attempt to head off a damaging revolt over freeschool meals. The Times quoted allies of the Prime Minister as saying work wasunder way on providing additional support for eligible pupils outside termtime. There was no immediate response to the reports from Downing Street. Sucha move is likely to be seen as a partial climbdown by the Government in itsstruggle with footballer Marcus Rashford, who has been spearheading demandsfor free meals to be extended in England over the school holidays. However, itwas unclear whether it would be enough to defuse the growing anger on the Torybenches as more MPs continued to speak out against the Government’s handlingof the issue.
