The latest from the much-anticipated U.N. climate conference that gets underway in Paris on Monday. All times local:

9:45 a.m.

More than 140 world leaders are gathering in Paris for high-stakes talks seeking a long-term deal to slow man-made global warming.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is meeting French President Francois Hollande on Sunday morning to discuss the talks, and U.S. President Barack Obama is among scores of other leaders arriving for the talks.

The Nov. 30- Dec. 11 U.N. climate conference is under extra-high security after extremists killed 130 people around Paris earlier this month.

Negotiators from 196 countries are seeking an accord that reduces man-made emissions to limit rising sea levels and increasingly extreme weather that is already threatening populations around the world.
