Obama At G20 Summit Ask World Leaders To Accept Refugees

President Barack Obama sharply defended his strategy today for going after ISIS and said a large presence of ground troops in Syria would be a "mistake."

Speaking at the G20 summit in Turkey, Obama called on world leaders to accept refugees, saying that "many of these refugees are victims of terrorism themselves." However, he said accepting refugees requires "rigorous screening and security checks."

Meanwhile, French President Francois Hollande said he will propose a law extending the country's state of emergency for three months in the aftermath of the terror attacks in Paris.

Hollande also has requested a meeting of the U.N. Security Council, he said in an address to parliament.
