Obama, world leaders work to stop nuclear spread

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama and top leaders and officials from 47 countries are starting work on a plan to keep nuclear weapons out of terrorist hands.

Confronting what the president considers the "single biggest threat to U.S. security," Obama is looking for global help in his goal of ensuring all nuclear materials worldwide are secured from theft or diversion within four years.

Obama says nuclear materials in the hands of al-Qaida or another terrorist group could change the security landscape in the U.S. and around the world for years to come.

The two-day meeting of world leaders starts today.
