Security is tight in New York, as Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmedinejad gets set to address the UN General Assembly which is discussing the Millennium Development Goals for global poverty reduction.

Officially, the Iranian leader is in New York to talk about development.

But the nuclear issue and the Iranian government's human rights record are leading the unofficial agenda.
