Africans seek climate accord that respects their concerns

Africa is among the world's regions most in need of a "just and clear" global accord to combat climate change, Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi told the U.N. climate conference in Paris.

"All African nations are contributing less to the total harmful emissions and are the most affected by climate change," he told other global leaders at gathering.

The summit aims to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on measures to stem climate change and protect the environment.
