Asian nations assemble on global events

Delegates are focused on Middle East violence, North Korean missile testing and Iran's nuclear programme on the final day of the Association of South-East Asian Nations (ASEAN) conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

Malaysia and Indonesia, the world's most populous Muslim nations, both called for an immediate ceasefire to hostilities, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice joining the assembly after her visit to the combat zone.
