Leaders at UN face global concern over regional conflicts

In today’s world, few conflicts stay local. There’s India’s fight over the Kashmir region with bitter rival Pakistan, Haiti’s inner turmoil spilling into a migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border and questions about the Ethiopian government’s role in reported starvation deaths in the Tigray region. All are coming into full view Saturday as leaders from those regions address the U.N. General Assembly. India Prime Minister Narendra Modi was measured in his push back against Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan’s scathing — albeit predictable — rhetoric that landed hours earlier. Haiti Prime Minister Ariel Henry will  give a pre-recorded speech as the country’s turmoil spills into a migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
