The Latest: Climate activists stage 'die-in,' role-playing

LE BOURGET, France (AP) -- The latest news from the U.N. climate conference in Paris, which runs through Dec. 11. All times local:

11:25 a.m.

Activists have staged a 'die-in' at the Paris climate talks, collapsing onto the pavement to represent vulnerable populations threatened by rising seas and extreme weather prompted by man-made global warming.

"Climate Justice Now!" chanted two dozen activists, some on the ground and some standing holding photos of poor countries that are feeling the effects of global warming.

The activists want an eventual global climate accord to include promises of aid for the losses and damages caused by global warming.

The stunt was one of several by activists at the Paris climate talks Friday, where negotiators are haggling over wording in a draft accord.
