UNITED NATIONS (AP) - President Barack Obama is telling the United Nations General Assembly that while the world is more stable than five years ago, the deadly terrorist attack on a shopping mall in Kenya "indicates the dangers that remain."

More than 60 people have been killed by members of the Somali terrorist group al-Shabab in the Kenyan capital of Nairobi. The attackers say the strike was retribution for Kenyan forces' 2011 push into neighboring Somalia.

Obama said al-Qaida has splintered into regional networks and militias, and said that poses "serious threats to governments, diplomats, businesses and civilians across the globe."
