Sorry, can't copy the article. But she'svsitting next to Nadia Murad, so I guess Amal's advocating for her and the enslaved Yazidis. I would have liked if the article had at least mentioned this.
So if Amal is in New York, the twins will be as well, maybe George is joining them.

Clooney, who is married to Hollywood star George Clooney, represents members of Iraq's Yazidi community who were raped and kidnapped by Islamic State militants.
Amal Clooney said earlier this year that nations must not let the extremist group 'get away with genocide'.
'Yazidis and other ISIS victims want justice in a court of law, and they deserve nothing less,' said the attorney.

Ahead of the decision, Clooney, who welcomed her twins Ella and Alexander in June, appeared confident that the council would vote in favor of her campaign. 
She was seen greeting and shaking the hands of leaders, including US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley.
Last summer, Clooney made the announcement that she would represent Yazidi victims.
At the time she said: 'It's been harrowing to hear the testimony of girls as young as 11 and 12 talk about what's happened to them. And still we haven't been able to do anything about it.'
When asked if she would pursue this case 'no matter the price' Clooney said she would, adding that she did not take the decision lightly.

'They are brainwashing people and I think one of the ways to take action against that is to expose their brutality and their corruption and partly, you can do that through trials,' she said at the time. 
UN investigators can now help Iraq collect evidence to build potential war crimes cases against ISIS.
The council unanimously passed a resolution that asks the UN to establish an investigative team to help Iraq preserve evidence 'that may amount to war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide' committed by the Islamic State group.
Iraq and Britain spearheaded the measure. 
'There can never be adequate recompense' for those who have had to endure the group's brutality, said Alastair Burt, the British minister of state for the Middle East.

'This resolution means that the international community is united in our belief that there should at least be accountability for those who perpetrated such wanton acts,' he added, pledging 1 million pounds ($1.35 million) to the investigative effort.
Iraqi Foreign Minister Ibrahim al-Jaafari said in a letter last month that his country wants to 'make use of international expertise' to bring to justice the IS group, also known as ISIL or Daesh.
'The crimes committed by the terrorist organization ISIL against civilians and its destruction of infrastructure and antiquities in Iraq are crimes against humanity,' al-Jaafari wrote.

UN investigators will be able to help identify victims and perpetrators and 'provide an indispensable record of the scope and scale' of IS atrocities, Haley said, calling the resolution 'a landmark'.

Amal Clooney wore a bright orange 70s inspired suit out in New York today
Amal, 39, was seen speaking to both the British and American ambassador’s to the UN at the meeting.

In a sea of muted suits, George Clooney’s wife had all eyes on her thanks to the vibrant orange shade she chose to wear.

Amal’s skirt suit featured a boxy cropped jacket and loose A line skirt that came down her knees.

She paired the burnt orange suit with a tangerine silk pussy-bow shirt, a classic nod to the 70s.

Amal kept her accessories to a minimum, wearing a plain wedding band and  no other jewellery.

She stopped short of matching her shoes to her outfit, choosing beige courts instead.

The orange tones of her outfit complemented the caramel highlights in her hair, which was blow-dryed into large tumbling curls.

The mum-of-two wore tonal make-up, with a brick orange-red matte lipstick pulling the look together.

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Amal was last seen with George and the twins at the Venice Film Festival in Italy at the start of the month.

The human rights lawyer, who gave birth to twins Ella and Alexander in June, oozed elegance as she left the Cipriani Hotel with husband George. 

The pair were every inch the doting parents as they carried their babies out of the venue and into a waiting boat.

The children were kept out of view of waiting photographers and were tucked up in two separate baby carriers.

After the parents stepped into the taxi, they could be seen gazing adoringly into the cots at the twins.

Amal looked chic as ever as she left the hotel in a pair of wide-legged black and white striped trousers which she paired with a silky black blouse.

Her dark locks were styled in bouncy waves while she sported a pair of black sunglasses to shield her eyes from the bright sun.

The actor meanwhile cut a more casual figure in a pair of light blue trousers and matching polo shirt.

The Express article makes absolutely no mention of why Amal was at the UN, just what she wore and how she looked. Maybe they thought it was part of Fashion Week? Razz

Lizzy,
when I posted the article, I found no other one which mentioned why she was at the UN. But I'm glad that others talk more important issues than her outfit, hair and make up.
The Express article reminds me of the articles when Amal did her speech at the UN in spring, also attended by Nadia,  'showing off her baby bump' (yes, every pregnant woman should leave her baby bump at home, that's much more comfortable and doesn't look like she's showing it off Rolling Eyes)...

Thanks carol, PAN and Annemarie for the posts.  Nice find.  The Express article is abysmal in its reporting.  The Daily Mail was for a change responsible in its reporting and stuck to the facts.

Seems she arrived alone and dressed for the UN meeting. I'm guessing she went straight there from the airport. Maybe straight back to LA after she was done? It doesn't look like George and the twins came to NY with her.

Thanks PAN.  Amal's style blog has some really good pictures.  Many the same as we've already seen but better quality.

I noticed that Amal is wearing her wedding band on her left handfor a change.  I think this is her habit when she is involved in business events.  But she also is wearing a different ring on her right hand.  Can't make it out too well.  It has a green stone.  Definitely not her engagement ring.
