G20 to focus on Europe, says Obama

At the start of the G20 summit of world leaders in Cannes, President Obama said resolving the financial crisis in Europe was the most important task of the next two days.

In a shared news conference with the French President Nicholas Sarkozy, Mr Obama said the G20 would also focus on the issue of Greek debt.

The two men also shared a joke about being fathers to young daughters.
