NEW YORK (AP) - Pope Francis has entered the United Nations General Assembly hall to applause.

His stop at the U.N. is part of a three-city trip to the U.S.

He arrived a bit early for his scheduled speech before the international body and stood in a corridor outside, chatting with Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. Then his arrival was announced, and he and Ban walked into the crescent-shaped chamber together.

The pope is sitting in a beige chair with a high back, where world leaders sit before they address the world body.
