Queen Elizabeth II Appeal For World Unity and Peace

UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Queen Elizabeth II has arrived at the
United Nations where she's expected to appeal for world unity and
peace.

After addressing the General Assembly and meeting with U.N.

Center site, laying a wreath in tribute to the thousands who died
in the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attack, including 67 Britons.
The queen and her husband, Prince Philip, were greeted by U.N.
Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and General Assembly President Ali
Abdessalam Treki and their wives.
