UNITED NATIONS (AP) - President Barack Obama and some 160 other world leaders are gathering at the United Nations to address Middle East unrest and other global issues related to peace and international security.

They'll be speaking at the U.N. General Assembly, which groups all of the world body's 193 U.N. member states.

While some are arriving specifically for the session that opens today, others already have spoken at a separate three-day U.N. summit that ended Sunday and was focused on new U.N. development goals.
