World Leaders Pose for 'Family' Photo at Nuclear Summit

Surrounded by world leaders who had been working on a nuclear world peace summit, United States President Barack Obama knew a perfect picture opportunity when he saw one.

The 54 presidents and prime ministers who had gathered for the two-day summit also gathered for a quick "team photo," and as Obama stood in the middle of the large group, he decided to flash a peace sign. After all, peace is what this entire summit was about, wasn't it?
