Zuma storms out of global terror summit - NY UN
New york - Secretary-General Kofi Annan, opening an international conference on counterterrorism hours after the United Nations' headquarters in Baghdad were attacked for a second time, said world leaders must deal with the roots of terrorism if they are to fight it more effectively.

Nearly 20 heads of state joined Annan, counterterrorism experts and a handful of terror victims in New York to discuss the "roots of evil" and what lies behind terrorism.

Security at the conference was tight for many attendants. But it was too tight for South African Foreign Minister Nkosazana Zuma who left the conference rather than be frisked by security guards.

"You don't treat a foreign minister this way," she told The Associated Press. Conference organisers apologised but said security was in the hands of the United States' secret service.
