G20 summit: World leaders gather in Brisbane

(BBC) World leaders are arriving in Australia for this weekend's G20 summit in the Queensland city of Brisbane.

The two-day summit, attended by the US, Chinese and Russian leaders among others, will focus on promoting growth.

Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott said leaders would discuss job creation, identifying tax cheats and strengthening the global economy.

Tensions with Russia over Ukraine will also draw attention, while campaigners want climate change on the agenda.

In Brisbane, local government workers have been given a day off because of the number of travel restrictions in place. Thirteen world leaders are due to arrive in the city on Friday.
