Hi, I'm Ayshah and

this is Newsround.

0:00:040:00:06

All this on the way...

0:00:060:00:07

Buddy the dog and the man

who rescued him from a hurricane...

0:00:070:00:11

The people clubbing together

to buy this castle...

0:00:110:00:14

And the astronauts enjoying a nice

slice of pizza in space.

0:00:140:00:24

A year ago, eleven-year-old Raghba

had never even played Squash.

0:00:290:00:31

But now she's dreaming of playing

for her country - Syria.

0:00:310:00:37

Whitney's got this.

0:00:370:00:40

She trains almost everyday,

focusing on her game and working

0:00:400:00:45

to be quicker on her feet.

0:00:450:00:48

But five years ago, life was very

different for Raghba and her family.

0:00:480:00:51

When they were forced

to leave their home town of Homs

0:00:510:00:53

because of the war in Syria.

0:00:530:01:02

They moved across the border

to Jordan, where they first

0:01:020:01:05

lived in a refugee camp.

0:01:050:01:06

It was when the family moved

to the outskirts of the city that

0:01:060:01:12

Raghba and her sisters got

the chance to try squash.

0:01:120:01:16

She now plays in a team of four

girls and it's not just

0:01:160:01:19

all about the sport either.

0:01:190:01:20

We have training five times a week,

learning to play both squash

0:01:200:01:23

and English, to help them become

competitive squash players,

0:01:230:01:26

so they can compete in tournaments,

both here in Jordan

0:01:260:01:29

and around the world.

0:01:290:01:30

And we also want them

to achieve academic status,

0:01:300:01:32

so they can enrol in schools.

0:01:320:01:33

Squash isn't an overly

popular sport in Syria,

0:01:330:01:37

although lots of people play it

in other countries

0:01:370:01:40

in the Middle East.

0:01:400:01:41

But now Raghba and her team-mates

are hoping to one day go back

0:01:410:01:44

to Syria and share their love

of the sport.

0:01:440:01:49

TRANSLATION:

It's been six months

since I played squash

0:01:500:01:53

and I want to play around the world

and go back to Syria

0:01:530:01:56

and become a coach.

0:01:560:01:59

I want to take part in Arab

and foreign tournaments.

0:01:590:02:05

TRANSLATION:

I like sport

and especially squash

0:02:060:02:08

because when I grow up

I want to travel and compete

0:02:080:02:11

in tournaments around the world

and make Syria and my family proud.

0:02:110:02:14

Best of luck, girls!

0:02:140:02:15

I hope you smash it.

0:02:150:02:21

Now to cricket, and the Ashes.

0:02:210:02:22

It wasn't good news for England

yesterday but today they're

0:02:220:02:24

fighting back, on day four

of the second test.

0:02:240:02:27

The teams play five tests over

the course of the competition.

0:02:270:02:29

Australia won the first test,

and England need to do really well

0:02:290:02:32

over the next day and a half to win

the second.

0:02:320:02:37

Now to a lovely tale of a police

officer who rescued a dog

0:02:380:02:41

after Hurricane Irma.

0:02:410:02:42

He's now brought him back to the UK

from the British Virgin Islands.

0:02:420:02:51

Meet Buddy, the lucky labrador

cross, who is now living in the UK.

0:02:510:02:54

Sit.

0:02:540:02:55

Good boy.

0:02:550:02:56

Buddy is a stray.

0:02:560:03:03

He won the heart of a police

officer called John Harvey.

0:03:030:03:05

John was sent from Suffolk Police

to the British Virgin Islands

0:03:050:03:08

to help people after the devastation

of Hurricane Irma.

0:03:080:03:10

He put his paws around my thigh

and just wouldn't let me go, really.

0:03:100:03:13

I was trying to leave

and he was walking with me

0:03:130:03:16

on his back legs and I just thought,

you know, I'd like to

0:03:160:03:19

bring him home if I can.

0:03:190:03:21

And give him a chance

of a better life, really.

0:03:210:03:23

Buddy spent 21 days in Washington,

DC in the US, where vets checked

0:03:230:03:26

that he was healthy and fit,

before he was allowed

0:03:260:03:28

to travel on to the UK.

0:03:280:03:30

It looks fantastic,

really good to see him,

0:03:300:03:32

he was excited, I was excited.

0:03:320:03:34

And it was kind of the start

of the next chapter.

0:03:340:03:42

This hand, ready for new adventures

together. But it can all get a bit

0:03:420:03:47

exhausting... LSM!

0:03:470:03:53

Imagine owning somewhere

as fancy as this!

0:03:530:03:55

But without having to spend loads

and loads of money to buy it!

0:03:550:03:59

Thousands of people across the world

joined together to buy this

0:03:590:04:02

thirteenth century French castle.

0:04:020:04:03

It cost 500,000 euros to buy,

but some people only paid around

0:04:030:04:06

£45 for a share.

0:04:060:04:11

They're now planning to fix it up

and restore it to it's former glory.

0:04:110:04:17

We've put humans on the moon,

sent a rover to Mars and now we've

0:04:170:04:20

sent pizza to space.

0:04:200:04:21

Astronauts on the International

Space Station had their

0:04:210:04:24

very own pizza party.

0:04:240:04:28

The toppings - pepperoni,

tomato sauce, cheese

0:04:280:04:32

and olives, were all sent up

on a special supply ship.

0:04:320:04:35

Commander Randy Bresnik said

the pizzas were "flying saucers

0:04:350:04:37

of the edible kind".

0:04:370:04:38

Well that's just one

of the best quotes ever!

0:04:380:04:43

Come back after The Zoo to find

out why this beautiful

0:04:430:04:45

rainbow is record breaking.

0:04:450:04:52

Go online for some skiing Santanas

and take a lot at the supermoon

0:04:520:04:57

pictures. Goodbye.
