Some developing nations slam climate accord

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Several developing nations lined up on Saturday to reject a deal worked out by U.S. President Barack Obama and major emerging economies to help fight global warming at the end of a U.N. summit.

“I regret to inform you that Tuvalu cannot accept this document,” said Ian Fry, delegate for the low-lying Pacific island state that fears it could be wiped off the map by rising sea levels.

Delegates of Venezuela, Bolivia and Cuba also angrily denounced the “Copenhagen Accord,” saying it would not help address global warming.
