NEW YORK (AP) - A day after becoming the first pope to address the U.S. Congress, Francis today speaks to the U.N. General Assembly.

The Vatican says the pope is expected to talk about the need for peace, the plight of refugees and the role of poverty and bad government in driving conflict and migration.

While in New York City, the pope will also travel to Nine Eleven's ground zero and he'll hold Mass for some 18,000 people at Madison Square Garden.
