Obama arrives for his first G8 summit

L'AQUILA, Italy (AP) - President Barack Obama has arrived in the
quake-ravaged Italian town of L'Aquila as the first Group of Eight
summit of his presidency opened.
Obama was greeted by host Silvio Berlusconi at the summit at a
walled-off police academy where leaders of eight industrialized
nations will hold their three-day meeting.
Obama joins fellow world leaders for critical talks on threats
to global security and stability at a summit where climate change,
a continuing global economic crisis and world hunger took top
billing.
