President Obama has called on world leaders to speak out forcefully against violence and extremism. He told the sixty-seventh meeting of the United Nations General Assembly that the world can make progress only through tolerance and freedom. Much of his speech centered on the weeks of violent protest caused by an anti-Muslim film made in the United States. Mr. Obama denounced the video but said it did not justify causing innocent blood to flow, including that of the United States ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. Mr. Stevens and three other diplomatic officers were killed in an attack on the American diplomatic office in Benghazi, Libya. Mr. Obama also called for an end to the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.



A Syrian human rights group says Syrian security forces have arrested at least sixty-eight people. The arrests took place around the coastal city of Baniyas. An employee of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told VOA, Tuesday, that the arrests may be related to the kidnapping of a top-level Syrian officer. Twenty-five women, three children and at least forty men are among those being held. None of those arrested has been charged. The human rights group says they are being held to convince rebel fighters to turn themselves in. The Observatory wants the United Nations General Assembly to call for a ceasefire to help end the unrest.



U.S. Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney says poverty, joblessness and government corruption are making young people in the Middle East angry. Mr. Romney told world leaders at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York, Tuesday, that religious extremism is not the whole story. He says that if he is elected president he will try to create jobs overseas. That would include sending aid to developing countries that remove trade barriers and open their markets to American investment. President Obama also spoke at the forum. He announced new plans to fight human trafficking, which he calls modern slavery. Both the President and Mr. Romney will campaign Wednesday in the Midwest state of Ohio. It is one of several states important to winning the election.



Chinese President Hu Jintao has put the country's first aircraft carrier into service. The act raises new concerns about China's growing military strength. Premier Wen Jiabao and other top officials joined hundreds of navy personnel in the ceremony, Tuesday, at the northeastern port city of Dalian. China bought the three hundred meter Soviet ship in nineteen ninety-eight from Ukraine. It was repaired at Dalian. It has been renamed Liaoning after China's northeastern province where the port is located. The Defense Ministry said the aircraft carrier is important in raising the fighting strength of China's navy.



Burmese opposition leader Aung San Suu Kyi spoke to members of the Burmese population in the United States, Tuesday. She was hopeful about Burma's move toward democracy. Thousands of supporters came to see her speak in the city of Fort Wayne, Indiana. The Midwestern city is home to one of the nation's largest Burmese communities. It is the fourth stop on Aung San Suu Kyi's seventeen-day tour. She delivered most of her speech in Burmese. But, before she started, the sixty-seven-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner spoke English and called the United States the greatest democracy in the world. She also called on the United States to life trade limits with Burma. The United States has already eased some restrictions on trade with Burma since the country began approving democratic reforms.
