United States Secretary of State John Kerry, left, listens while United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon makes some remarks before a meeting at United Nations Headquarters in New York, Thursday, July 25, 2013. Kerry will preside at a U.N. Security Council meeting assessing progress in implementing a Feb. 24 peace accord signed by 11 African nations to end years of fighting in eastern Congo. Later, he will meet with leaders of the Western-backed Syrian National Coalition to promote an international conference and a political solution to the conflict. On Thursday, U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon announced that the conflict has claimed more than 100,000 lives since 2011, up from an earlier estimate of 93,000. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig) less
