Welcome to the Reuters live blog for the G20 summit in Pittsburgh. We'll be bringing you the complete picture as world leaders converge on Pennsylvania to talk about trade, banker salaries, the global economy and more.
Just went thru extensive security sweep to get to G20 summit site. Bags sniffed by one dog, searched by hand, then sniffed by another dog.
It's like a double rinse cycle -- extra clean.
We were swept at the Mellon Arena then put on buses for drive to Convention Center. Downtown was basically deserted at the early hour.
Lots of police, National Guard troops at checkpoints throughout the city.
