Day 1 of the Nuclear Security Summit(14 images)

Leaders of about four dozen nations and non-government organizations were called to Washington to discuss security of nuclear materials.

U.S. President Barack Obama convened the high-profile meeting to look into what he called the most severe security issue for the United States -- the possibility that a terror group such as al-Qaida obtained nuclear materials and used them in an attack on U.S. interests.
