Morning! I'm Ayshah and this is Newsround.

0:00:030:00:05

First up, female rights campaginer Malala Yousafzai has said

0:00:050:00:08

THe turtle a long way from home.

0:00:190:00:26

And why these two are so happy.

0:00:260:00:27

First up, female rights campaginer Malala Yousafzai has said

0:00:270:00:29

she's heartbroken that President Trump

0:00:290:00:31

is closing the door on children fleeing violence and war.

0:00:310:00:33

Her comments came after President Trump said

0:00:330:00:35

the US is banning Syrian refugees from entering the US

0:00:350:00:37

until further notice.

0:00:370:00:38

He's also stopped allowing people

0:00:380:00:39

from six other mainly Muslim countries to travel to America.

0:00:390:00:45

Theresa May became the first foreign leader to meet new American

0:00:450:00:50

President Donald Trump.

0:00:500:00:52

They talked about the relationship between the US and the UK.

0:00:520:00:58

It was also confirmed that the new American president

0:00:580:01:00

will be coming to visit the UK, later this year.

0:01:000:01:03

To the story of a pretty epic journey.

0:01:030:01:05

This little guy took a wrong turn and ended up

0:01:050:01:07

thousands of miles from home.

0:01:070:01:08

Ricky's got the full story.

0:01:080:01:13

This incredible turtle has been on a journey like no other.

0:01:130:01:16

Last November, she was discovered off the coast of Anglesey in Wales.

0:01:160:01:20

What's even more amazing is that Olive Ridley turtles are usually

0:01:200:01:26

found in warmer waters around Mexico and southern parts of the US.

0:01:260:01:29

So, how did she end up off the coast of Wales,

0:01:290:01:31

thousands of miles away?

0:01:310:01:32

That's what this team are trying to work out.

0:01:320:01:36

Menai, as she has been named, is being cared for at the Royal

0:01:360:01:39

Veterinary College in Hertfordshire.

0:01:390:01:40

They've never seen an Olive Ridley turtle before.

0:01:400:01:44

She's the first to be spotted in British waters

0:01:440:01:46

since records began almost 270 years ago.

0:01:460:01:49

Staff caring for her noticed she was unable

0:01:490:01:51

to stay below the water.

0:01:510:01:54

But that hasn't stopped her from munching her way

0:01:540:01:56

through a lot of food.

0:01:560:01:59

She's a real character, now we've got to know her.

0:01:590:02:08

She is eating well, demolishing a couple of kilos a day.

0:02:080:02:10

These turtles can swim long distances, but it's thought that

0:02:100:02:13

Menai drifted in strong currents to the UK.

0:02:130:02:15

She's getting all the care she needs.

0:02:150:02:17

A team of carers apply cream to her shell to stop it from drying out.

0:02:170:02:24

Menai will be returned to Anglesey, then she will hopefully be

0:02:240:02:29

enough to be released back into the wild.

0:02:290:02:31

Tennis now and sisters Venus and Serena face each other

0:02:310:02:33

in Australian Open final this morning, and whoever wins that match

0:02:330:02:36

might want to take a few tips on celebrating from these guys.

0:02:360:02:39

Bethanie Mattek-Sands, and Lucie Safarova,

0:02:390:02:42

or Team Bucie as they call themselves, showed off

0:02:420:02:47

with this routine after they won the doubles title.

0:02:470:02:52

Looking good, ladies!

0:02:520:02:53

That's all for now.

0:02:530:02:54

Join me back here just after midday for all the latest.

0:02:540:03:01
