Ban Ki-moon: 'Clock ticking' on UN development goals

The UN secretary general's comments came as he addressed world leaders meeting in New York for a summit to review the targets.

The eight goals, set 10 years ago, aim to reduce poverty and hunger and to improve health standards around the world.
