UNITED NATIONS: Egypt's new President Mohammed Mursi is making his debut on the global stage at the United Nations, saying he will not rest until the civil war in Syria is brought to an end.

He call the fighting there, which opposition groups say has killed at least 30,000 people, the "tragedy of the age" and one that "we all must end."

And he invited all nations Wednesday to join the effort being led by Cairo in a bid to stop the bloodshed that began about 18 months ago when opposition figures rose up against President Bashar Assad's regime. He and his father before him have run the country as a dictatorship for 40 years.

Mursi opened his remarks by celebrating himself as Egypt's first democratically elected leader.
