Coming up: We find out how kids are celebrating Chinese New Year.
And the turtle found a long way from home.
First up, people who support refugees, including female rights
campaigner Malala Yousafzai, have criticised President Trump.
It's because of his decision to stop people who have left Syria,
because of the war there, from entering the US.
But his supporters say he's made the right decision
Donald Trump was sworn in as the 45th US President last
Friday and after his first week in office says he's stopping
refugees from Syria from coming to America until further notice.
He's also signed an order to stop people from six other
mainly Muslim countries, including Iran and Iraq
in the Middle East and Somalia and Sudan in Africa,
being given permission to travel to America
The President made immigration a big issue in his election.
The things he has said about migrants and refugees
have made him popular with his supporters.
He says the decision he has just made will help keep terrorists out
We want to make sure that we are not admitting into our country the very
threats our soldiers are fighting overseas.
We only want to admit those into our country
who will support our country and love deeply our people.
But other people say banning all refugees from Syria
is not the right decision, and that it will punish
people who have nothing to do with terrorism.
She is the citizens and the innocent people of Syria that were affected
by the war with the terrorist group. Female rights campaigner
Malala Yousafzai says she's She says Trump shouldn't
be 'turning his back on the world's most defenceless
children and families'. And the order has angered many human
rights organisations too who say Trump is closing the door
to children who need help. It's been a record breaking tennis
day down in Australia. As Serena Williams beat her big sis,
not only to take the Australian Open title, but also claim her place
in history, by winning more big tennis tournaments than any other
professional female player. Staying with tennis and these two
certainly know how to celebrate Bethanie Mattek-Sands,
and Lucie Safarova - or Team Bucie as they call
themselves - showed off with this routine after they won
the doubles title. Today the year of the rooster starts
and people around the world will be celebrating by setting off
fireworks, giving gifts of money in red envelopes,
and eating special food. Martin's been to meet some kids
in Manchester getting involved. I just think it is important
because, like, obviously I am Chinese and my parents are from
China, so it is always important to remember our culture. So, when it
comes to the New Year, there is a lot of food and they are all
delicious! Are family come to my house and then, and friends, we have
dinner together and we play with each other. I also like Chinese New
Year because it is a time for me to get together with all my friends.
Chinese New Year. For lots of people from places like America and many
Asian countries get together with your friends and loved ones.
Traditionally in the UK, New Year's Day balsam the 1st of January every
year. However, Chinese New Year is based on the ancient lunar calendar,
which is a little different. This means the date changes every year.
The Chinese calendar also celebrates a different animal each year. There
are 12 in total, and this year it is all about the rooster. There are
celebrations going on all over the country, and these guys are part of
a big parade in Manchester. We are going to dance the chicken dance. We
will be doing Chinese martial arts. I will be doing it with the rest of
my martial arts club. That's not all. Chinatown in Manchester will be
filled with even more dancers and performers, including the
15-year-old gymnast, who has come all the way from China to take part.
I love around Chinese New Year time I get to meet so many new people we
do these performances, like I get to spend time with my friends and
family, but more importantly I get to meet all these amazing people and
a lot of times we end up becoming really good friends and those
friendships last for a lifetime. And if you don't know
what chinese animal you are, and want to find out,
